  1. Lovely set, Bernd. Definitely a place worth visiting soon! Thanks for sharing.
  2. Actually, you are right. I forgot about that one. It is a very nice implementation as well, I used it the other day when flying around KLAS and was very good for situational awareness.
  3. +1 I think both Just Flight and Leonardo manage to provide a very plausible radar experience. I'm all for realism, but I'd rather have a basic wx radar than nothing at all. I wish PMDG would do the same, but seeing the snarky responses posted by RSR about it, I don't think we'll see anything like it anytime soon.
  4. Great review! I purchased the update just this weekend, but haven't had the time to test it yet. Your pics definitely are driving me to launch XP12 before the weekend ;-D Thanks for sharing!
  5. I think the trailer looks pretty fun. I've come to terms with MSFS regarding its real target audience and scope. In my case, I've found enjoyment by understanding it is a fun aviation game with some varying aspects of realism and levels of simulation fidelity. If I want something more complex or high-fidelity (hate the term study-level) I'll go with Aerowinx PSX or P3D. Having said that, I definitely love the fun aspects of what's in that trailer! Firefighting? SAR? Cargo? Oh yeah! Bring it on please!!! I wish MS/Asobo would introduce an airline career mode similar to what we had back in the Sublogic's ATP days. Now THAT was fun.
  6. Yes and no! JustSim's is more detailed... the buildings and the mesh are better than AS. However, I find JustSim's night lightning and textures inferior, so most likely I'll stay with AS version, unfortunately.
  7. Hi, I don't own the Nimbus for what it's worth. However, I've been burned in the past by Nimbus lack of support in their scenery products and have since then hesitated to buy their Huey or the Islander. On the other hand, Thranda is great at supporting their products. I know which BN-2 I'll be buying for XP12. Hope this helps.
  8. Beautiful shots, Filou! Thank you for sharing!
  9. I'd be surprised if that ever happened... I'm sure our nice friends at Microsoft/Asobo used their "embrace and extend" tactic with IniBuilds when they brought the A310 to MSFS, most likely signing an exclusivity agreement. I understand why Microsoft/Asobo would do that from a business point of view, but they ended up collaterally screwing previous IniBuilds customers who most likely are also MSFS customers (like myself), which is a stupid tactic. I would express MS/Asobo my gratitude for killing the possibility of having my *PAID* A310 in XP12 and forcing me to use their free subpar version, but I can't because their forum admins are incompetent, and I can't login using my account since MSFS launched (in the case you're wondering why I'm not ranting in their own forum).
  10. Ignorance is bliss! hehe. Thank you for the pointer to that thread, I remember reading it but lost it. Bookmarked now! For those interested, the "Heritage" mod I mentioned, which sounds promising, is located here (I hope I'm not breaking any rules by putting the link here, if so, please feel free to edit it): Concorde Heritage avionics package upgrade - Payware Aircraft - X-Plane.Org Forum
  11. Thank you, Ray. Much appreciated. I am thinking that, at the current sale price of $39, it is a fair price for a "trainer" to get me started while FSL delivers the "real thing". While I've never taken Concorde seriously in my "career" as a simmer, I enjoy old school jetliner challenges and was proficient in aircraft such as the RFP 742 (now we have an awesome rendition by Felis for XP), the "Iron Knuckles" DC-9 and the DF727. I do realize this will be a steep learning curve, though! Thanks again!
  12. I'm thinking of getting the Colimata Concorde for XP12, in preparation for the FSLabs release for P3D. Does anyone know how accurate systems-wise it is when integrated with the Heritage Mod? I'm particularly curious about the Fuel System modeling, considering all the things I've read about it by @Ray Proudfoot Thanks!
  13. As the person who authored the phrase you're quoting, I can assure you that, based on "enhancements" post SU7, weather is absolutely lacking. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks like that. And, without knowing your background, those who share my opinion have authentic and educated knowledge regarding weather. If the current state of things suits you well, then... congrats! enjoy the sim. We definitely have different expectations.
  14. This same argument has come twice in this thread, and I can't for the life of me understand what you mean by that. Have you guys been using the same Active Sky version I've been using in P3D (version 4 or 5)? Because save for MSFS graphics, weather simulation using P3D+AS combo is miles and miles beyond what MSFS has to offer today. If by "really good" you mean somewhat accurate METARs and a few beautiful clouds when flying your Piper Cub around your home airfield in VMC, then we have different expectations or case-uses regarding flight simulation. I don't mean this in a derogatory way at all, nor I'm I looking to engage in an endless debate here, I'm just trying to understand what you find so "good" about it when - to me and others in this thread - weather seems like an afterthought to Asobo.
  15. Frankly, I don't understand it either... and, it profoundly saddens me that teams/companies such as yours could pay the ultimate price because of such myopic decisions. I sincerely hope you're able to stay in the game for a long time. Otherwise, what a great loss it would be to our community. I've been a loyal customer of yours since the start, both in the FS and XP world, and I thank you for all the dedication in improving my simulation experience during all these years.May the wind soon change in your favor!
