  1. Future ? No, it's already there... http://www.avsim.com/topic/475167-this-sim-is-epic/ http://www.avsim.com/tags/forums/ubuntu/ and everywhere around you: watches, phones, routers, tvs, tablets, desktop computers, servers, supercomputers, airplane avionics, cars...
  2. In french you can also say nonante-sept (=90+7). But this is more used in Belgium than in France. :wink: Fact is, with every simulator you'll have something to learn first. But this should be part of the fun, and as a virtual pilot, knowing your software is very important to enjoy your flight.
  3. That why it should be called Digital Restrictions Management. :wink: You can buy a PC without any OS. I stopped using Windows long time ago.
  4. Thank you all for the comments ! :smile: +1000 You're right. With the default scenery in X-Plane 10, I could already recognize my small village in France, with all the streets, railways, forests, rivers, lakes, and power lines. I never had this quality by default in other flight simulators except in newer versions of FlightGear. With the HD mesh by AlpilotX it became even better with more details and newer data from OpenStreetMap. It's donation-ware, but you can also download the files for free. Since X-Plane 9, I already had very good add-on sceneries thanks to great free tools like XPOSM and OSM2XP bringing you the roads and buildings at their real places. Since last year with World2XPlane it's even more than awesome. I'm now always using photo sceneries + World2XPlane files for all the places I know, and where I expect very realistic sceneries. For the rest of the world where I don't care about the precise position of every single house, for basic VFR or IFR, the default "plausible" scenery is very good. Back to the topic... I hope the certification of the Epic E1000 will be a success: http://aviationweek.com/oshkosh-2015/epic-aircraft-s-e1000-prepares-certification http://www.flyingmag.com/aircraft/turboprops/epic-e1000-certification-expected-next-year I thought Austin had first a Cirrus SR-22, now he owns a Columbia 400. He's also building a Lancair Evolution. http://www.x-plane.com/hardware/evo/evo.html
  5. Hi all ! Today I flew the Epic E1000 by Aerobask. http://epicaircraft.com/aircraft Happy flying ! B)
  6. Thank you all for the comments ! :smile:
  7. More about the patent scam here, Austin made a very good new video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xggxHI0w5I http://www.thepatentscam.com/glimpse-1.html
  8. I don't know if I would want it. I don't even know what this is supposed to improve. The default weather engine does a decent job for GA flying, but it would be great to find more details in higher flight levels. Does Opus for X-Plane bring winds and temps aloft ? Is it available for GNU/Linux ?
