  1. Painful from the standpoint of spending extra money..but that combination of the Do228 ad the GTN 750 is pretty awesome. I really enjoy the Do228..love the old school panel and beat up look to it. I'm using it in my Air Hauler company. And I've always said the RXP GTN 750 is the best add-on I've ever purchased. We have on in the real Citation I fly and I absolutely love the unit in real life and in the sim...
  2. I love their Portland, Oregon scenery (KPDX) - I did some side by side comparisons with the P3D version against the X-Plane version if anyone wants to try to make a decision between the two... https://www.mudspike.com/flightbeam-studios-kpdx-portland-oregon/
  3. Thanks for the detailed reply...I appreciate the information!
  4. Any chance you could update this to the 1.9 release by chance?
  5. Sorry to beat this horse to death..I've read through the thread and I'm still a bit confused. I own the RXP GTN 750 (love it..same unit is in the Citation I fly for a living) and was hoping to have the combination of: Laminar 172SP + PropStrike Bush + GTN 750 + REP...is this possible? Also, is the GTN clickable using the VR mouse pointer? Thanks for all the hard work on this. I'm totally fine with whatever matrix of products works..!
  6. Hey - thanks for this - it looks great, works great, and is a fantastic addition to the Mu-2 panel..! Nice job! BeachAV8R
  7. Well, the operative word is "had" definitely. We are talking 25 years ago when I was doing that. Those were the days that bank checks had to physically move to the banks in order for the deposits to "count". So all over the country, every night, thousands of small airplanes flew all over the country picking up bank checks and delivering to larger cities where the checks could be hurried to the major banks to be deposited. Scanning and electronic banking pretty much killed that industry. As well, we carried a lot of Airborne Express freight from those smaller communities to the larger hubs, there they'd all go onto a larger aircraft like a DC-8 and sent to the major sort centers. We also flew a lot of Kodak and Konica film canisters - I don't know what was in the film..maybe medical film or something..I have no idea. Nowadays you see more stuff like blood and tissues flying around in the middle of the night with couriers doing drug testing samples and organ donation stuff..those are things that can't be scanned or electronically processed. Things are a lot different than they were a couple decades ago..I'm glad I got to experience it, and I'm even happier that I survived it.. LOL
  8. Oh man, some of those airport names bring back some memories. Pulaski, Martinsville, some of those others. 25 years ago, flying single engine freight aircraft like Lances and Bonanzas in the winter. LOL..some white knuckle moments. I'll be interested to revisit some of them...
  9. I'd buy that BAe 146 a second time over if they would make it P3D v4 compliant...I love that aircraft...
  10. So I'm in way over my head with this - I love the PC12 integration, but my PC12 in XP11 is pretty broken with regards to some of the engine modeling. I was hoping to use the EV-55 Outback for a 9,500 nm cross country Christmas Flight, and I would LOVE to have the GTN 750 in the panel..but I'm lost in PlaneMaker. I can access the 2D panel just fine, but I'd love to see the EV-55's Garmin replaced by the GTN. I actually got to use the GTN 725 in our real airplane today on the way to GYH for some maintenance. Really cool that I can have something similar in X-Plane..! Thanks! BeachAV8R
  11. Oh man...this was a great purchase. One of the planes I fly in real life (a Citation Ultra) has the GTN 750..so this is pretty cool. I bought the X-Plane version and have installed it in the Carenado PC-12. I haven't had a chance to totally explore it, but I love it already... BeachAV8R
  12. Oh man..you'd be a hero among us if you could manage to get this square peg into the round hole that is P3D v4. The Metro is a really awesome plane and I'd love to see it "alive" in v4... Good luck! BeachAV8R
  13. Does anyone know if ENVTEX works with Active Sky Next? I see some mentions of Active Sky 2016, but haven't seen anything about ASN (I haven't upgraded to 16 yet)... Thanks! BeachAV8R
  14. >Yeah-but in the Yosemite shots which I am quite familiar you>cover the distant mountains with clouds-and fsx is just much>more accurate here-let alone the terrain of Half Dome...:D There seems to be a lot of shots of Yosemite out there floating around..and I certainly couldn't resist the temptation to take FSX there because I got engaged to my girl on top of Half Dome..!http://www.mudspike.com/adventure/california/cal09.jpghttp://www.mudspike.com/adventure/california/cal15.jpgI flew in there with a bit crappier weather though..so the terrain comparisons won't really show...http://www.simhq.com/_air7/images/air_263a_194.jpghttp://www.simhq.com/_air7/images/air_263a_195.jpgRegards..BeachAV8R
  15. >I dont think the review is that bad, its a good review imho.>Honest, but the Wow - factor prevailed..>>But this shot made me wonder how 'good' fsx really is:>>>FS5 ?Lol..hey Johan..thanks for the comment..but that screenshot looks like crap because I was a few miles from the airport during multi-player on a long, wide downwind setting myself up for the ILS. I used the scroll wheel on my mouse to zoom way in on the airport environment to show how many multi-player ID tags were around and on the airport. The detail and washout factor is due to the fact that I was zoomed in from very, very far away (probably 64x or more zoom?) so there is no level-of-detail rendering going on there. As a matter of fact..the picture just after that one in the review is a screen of the GPS position from where I took that screen..and it is on 15nm range..(where is there a scale on there though to tell you how far things really are?? or is 15nm the radius from the airplane to the edge of the compass rose?)..so I'm guessing I was 5 or 6 miles away (or more?) for that shot..http://www.simhq.com/_air7/images/air_263a_221.jpgWhat also might contribute to the low LOD at far distances is that for MP in the Seattle area I keep the slider that sets the distance that details are rendered to LOW to keep my FPS high. So..a combination of things made that particular shot..well..pretty darn ugly.. :DRegards..Chris/BeachAV8R
