    LOVING IT!

    I don't think the release date for the full sim is set in stone. They postponed the release of Flight School too, and I think that's a good sign. I do agree that it is likely there will be 'a long progression' after that, as in all sims. The task of simulating all the world, weather and all the different aircraft from microlights to airliners and helicopters is so monumental, that a single company cannot do it all. That is likely to be the big question: how add-on/plug-in/mod friendly will the new sim be?

    LOVING IT!

    I´m glad I purchased it even though I´ve been FS-ing for years. I think it looks very promising. Sure, there are lots of graphical glitches (dark moon in bright sky, cockpit shadows disconnected from struts, the sharp horizon, ugly clouds) but there´s plenty of time to sort these out for the full sim. This version is already much smoother than the alpha that was released only a few weeks ago, they've made huge strides on that! The big thing is 64-bit, of course. They've got their priorities right I think: now they can start expanding and improving the graphics engine with a lot more resource headroom. It's a lot of simulator for the price if you're new to flight simming-the target audience.

    Sooooo, what do we do now?

    Well, FWIW, a couple of weeks ago I finally decided it was time to delete FS9 (and all its associated add-ons...yeah, that was a bit painful in some cases) from my system...FS9 and FSX had been living side-by-side from FSX release, but I found I really never went back to FS9 even though FPS were so much better...So, as a number of key add-ons were being re-released for FSX, I decided to finally go ahead and reclaim the space that FS9 was taking up.We've been there before in the past, but I guess FSX is the most controversial FS release so far...but, I for one am not looking back any more ( which, come to think of it, is kind of unusual for me I have to say ;-) ).

    Thank you PMDG!!

    Another satisfied customer here!I'm experiencing very few problems with the 747X, just finished a flight yesterday from EHAM to KJFK, with AFX weather, flightplan created with Routefinder and adapted for PMDG 747 with FSBuild, predicted to last 7:54 hours; did it in 7:49...(used up more fuel than predicted though).The displays froze twice during this flight, a quick shift-A to the 2D panel and back took care of that, no big deal. FSX is holding up well too, I do run it at slightly lower settings when flying the 747, no use in having cars and sailboats running around when you're at FL350+ !Frankly, now that the PMDG 747 has made it into FSX, it is very likely I will be saying goodbye to FS9 soon!Martijn

    747X: KMCO 35L AUTOLAND = Dead!

    Out of curiosity, I did try an autoland at KMCO 35L, and all went smooth, nosewheel on the runway centerline...Martijn

    ASX and PMDG 744X

    No problems with ASX and 747X as far as I'm concerned. I do start ASX before launching FSX.Martijn

    "order not found"

    This may help some who may be getting this message.After hitting the confirmation button on my order for the 747X (my account was recognized and discount was applied correctly), I received the message that "the order could not be found" and that I could not access it.However, after logging in to the account again (but not ordering anew), it was on my previous orders list and I am downloading now!Martijn

    747-400 for FSX Turning Final, Part 15

    So what happens next!! or not

    The date on that post is september 4th, so I suppose today, october 3rd, still qualifies as "within the month" :-hahHowever, I'm quessing that the "standard disclaimer applies"!And that, in turn, would qualify for the standard reply: "OK, fine, we don't want an unfinished or faulty product do we?"And that's just the way it is...it'll be ready-when it's ready! And when it is, then it will get released...I know it sounds boring, but common sense sometimes is!Having said that, some news would be welcome too!Martijn
