    Almería Airport (LEAM) For X-Plane 11

    Thank you, glad you like the screenhots, and I see that it's just been released too! Cheers, Jerome
  2. Hi everyone, Some shots from testing PILOT'S Almería Airport (LEAM) in X-Plane 11. The airport should be released in time for the weekend. I was also able to test PILOT'S FS Global Real Weather with X-Aviation's Real Weather Connector and SkyMaxx Pro v4.7, they are now interfaced and provide extremely realistic weather, cloud layers are now no longer limited to X-Plane's default 3 layer limit. Cheers, Jerome

    Falcon 50 Emergency Lighting Switch

    Hi Scott, Move the emergency lighting switch back to the off or armed position and then try pressing the dome light switch to turn the overhead lighting back off. Cheers, Jerome
  4. Hi Sam, How is the email stupid? Either you've misunderstood something very fundamental or are just trolling this topic! To label simMarket as "a company somewhere in the never land of the internet" is just ridiculous and I encourage you to reread the email from PILOT'S. Cheers, Jerome
  5. Hi Harry, If you don't have a backup of your FS Global mesh purchase from The FlightSim Store, then, due to the impending bankruptcy of The FlightSim Store, you no longer have the ability to access the files you should normally be able to download directly from The FlightSim Store. PILOT'S is simply taking the initiative to facilitate the transfer of your purchase from The FlightSim Store to simMarket, thereby preventing your purchase from The FlightSim Store to be lost forever. and guaranteeing future access to the files that you now no longer have access to via The FlightSim Store. I'm not sure I understand why you think this is a bad thing? Cheers, Jerome
  6. There aren't many really good business jets available for the P3Dv4 platform, thankfully Flysimware decided to develop the Dassault Falcon 50, which is now in late Beta and available for purchase. I decided to take the Falcon 50 on a short trip into Northern Alaska, and ended up flying a bad weather approach in PATK. FS Global Real Weather did a great job at providing accurate and immersive weather, from winds aloft right down to the low visibility approach. I cannot recommend this fine aircraft enough! Flysimware have delivered a really solid aircraft with in-depth system functionality, and this, coupled with an option to add the Reality XP GTN 750 as an integral part of the VC, makes this one of the most interesting business jets to date. The Falcon 50 exterior is extremely detailed, as you can see in the screenshots below. The interior too is very well done, the instruments are crisp with an air of authenticity. Yes, this Falcon 50 really is that good! I hope you enjoy the screenshots! Now if only I can convince the Flysimware developer to add winglets. 😉 Cheers, Jerome
  7. Hi Mark, Boeing originally gave specifications for the 787 with a 8,200 nm range. Several websites state that the longest range 787 variant can fly between 8,000 and 8,500 nm. The Boeing BBJ 787-8 has a 9,945 nm range with a configuration for 25 PAX. Cheers, Jerome

    FS Global Ultimate NG FTX - How to remove???

    Hi Greg, Have you tried using Aerodrome Flattening Meshes v2 (AFM2) with FS Global Ultimate NG, I recommend you use it for the 6 airports you mention. AFM2 will not change any APT files, it will simply adapt the mesh around a specific airport to avoid having a plateau airport. I'm not sure I understand why you would think that the mesh issues are due to FS Global Ultimate NG. Almost all airports in P3Dv4 are flattened artificially, and they very seldom have any realistic mesh. In a nutshell this means that realistic world mesh will clash with unrealistic airport mesh, which is why AFM2 exists. Cheers, Jerome

    Pilot's FS Global 2018 or Pilot's FS Global Ultimate?

    Hi Rick, Sorry, but your points have absolutely no merit whatsoever! PILOT'S offer outstanding support via email, I've always had a reply within 24 hours, usually within just a few hours! And why would you expect PILOT'S to support FTX Global Vector in an Orbx forum? Orbx have their own mesh specialist and they sell the product, it's up to Orbx to offer support. For you to suggest that PILOT'S is hiding under a rock and has "bailed out" on their products is ridiculous and shameful! Far from it in fact, I just saw that they're listed as one of the official exhibitors at the upcoming Las Vegas venue - FlightSimExpo 2018! Jerome

    Pilot's FS Global 2018 or Pilot's FS Global Ultimate?

    Adrian, I use the FS Global Ultimate - Next Generation Mesh and highly recommend it. While freeware mesh is certainly an attractive option for many, the fidelity of PILOT'S retail mesh is so much better. PILOT'S also use LIDAR data for some of the European Alps, a great enhancement if that's a region you typically fly over. Jerome
  11. I'm really impressed with how FS Global Real Weather depicts fog, mist and low visibility in general when I'm flying under those conditions in P3Dv4 or X-Plane 11. Here is a dawn arrival into Alaska’s Talkeetna Airport (PATK) with Carenado’s PHENOMenal Phenom 300 using PILOT’S FS Global Real Weather (FSGRW).

    PILOT'S FS Global Real Weather + Alaska

    Hi Ryan, Thanks and it's Carenado's S550. Cheers, Jerome
  13. Just the one shot taking off in the Citation with PILOT'S FS Global Real Weather doing a great job in depicting the low clouds with very interesting lighting. It's definitely a great advantage having a weather engine that works with both P3Dv4 and XP11!
  14. I believe that the only other developer that has modeled a turboprop engine separately with such complexity is Majestic with their Q400. I think it's very brave of Milviz to go down the path of such hardcore system simulation, as it definitely makes everything a lot more complex, which requires much more development time, and in turn also means a longer beta testing cycle. All those that have been following the Milviz King Air 350i development and anticipating the release will not be disappointed!
  15. Milviz has been very busy with the King Air 350i for quite some time. Every now and then I come across a post here at AVSIM that illustrates a complete lack of understanding just how much effort and energy is put into crafting a hardcore aircraft for FSX/P3D, one that is simulated with high accuracy, with very high fidelity, both visually and as far as system depth is concerned. The same goes for scenery, there is run-of-the-mill scenery and then there is scenery like PILOT'S Almeria Airport (LEAM), highly detailed, immensely immersive. The screenshots below are taken from a dawn departure this morning out of Almeria Airport on a test flight with the latest Milviz King Air 350i Beta.
