  1. I bought the -400 for $9.99 and successfully managed to tweak the necessary cfg files to reduce both power and weight and it flew a lot better. Then just started to use mods that became available on flightsim.to. However, it was always the -300ER that I wanted, so once again, got this in the sale with the intention of tweaking the cfg files to improve upon the default 747 parameters. Unfortunately, every time that I applied a reduction in the fuel tank arrangement, the sim ended in a stutter-fest. I narrowed it down to which lines were causing the stutters, but never managed to fix it. So just abandoned it. Which is a real shame as it looks lovely both inside and outside of the cockpit.
  2. Ah, ok. I've always shied away from the installer as I prefer to install manually. However, looks like I'll have no choice now !
  3. Could just be me, but I now seem unable to manually download the latest Dev build located here - when I click on "Download Development" (as I always have done), I just receive a message stating, "Not Found". Anyone else seeing this ? Regards
  4. I hadn't got around to trying this yet, so thanks for having a go. Seems like we're slogging a bit of a dead horse here, then..! Regards
  5. Hello all Are there any comtemporary methods for reloading the Community Folder from within the sim ? I've found some posts from a couple of years ago, but things have obviously moved on since then I'm tweaking a flight_model.cfg file and it's a bit of a pain having to restart the sim after each change. Regards
  6. Good to hear. Thanks for the quick reply!
  7. Anyone tried this version with FSiPanel yet?
  8. I suspect it's because they can. And when it looks this good, why not?
  9. Ok, that would make sense. So I'm guessing that unless the parking at both the third party and its equivalent default match exactly, you may end up seeing some 'bizarre' parking at the third party airport?
  10. Assuming no built in statics, does this addon work successfully with third party airports? Also, does it receive many updates reflecting changes in airline fleets, new airlines or ones that may have gone out of business? Thanks.
  11. I'm no scenery expert but after following a ~30min YouTube video, I managed to create a couple of scenery excludes that removed most of the static Ryanairs and the static Jet2 737. Makes the scenery perfectly usable. However, having said that, this will be a day one purchase for me as I live close to EGSS and have flown from their many, many times, and from what I've seen in the video, it looks superb.
  12. Probably encountered a drop in fps and fell out of the sky...
  13. Totally agree. Buy it when there's a sale on and it's less than a cup of coffee.
  14. Not necessarily. Both Detroit and LAX still appear to be discounted down to £12.99 from £19.99 ?
  15. My word, that's awful. If she complains about being asked her age, what's she going to say when I activate my FO camera view and end up sitting on her lap..?
