  1. Yeah, I've been contemplating a couple of purchases myself and was just logging in to convince myself to spend the money 😢
  2. Which of the above posts are discussing what the OP was talking about? I started to get confused. Has MisterX said when SFD Regions will be released? I'm so happy he's starting with NE in the US.
  3. Hi, Just started getting back into FSX a few months ago after a multi-year layoff, and just broke out the OZx Goose and came across your dynamics file again... Sorry, no thoughts on your engine sound issues. I usually attribute that stuff to glitches and system performance and let it go. My brand new 2018 Dell Precision 32GB / 4GB graphics laptop that's supposed to be top of the line has a horrible time keeping up with FSX texture loading, and the same goes for engine sound loading. So I just accept glitches like that and move on. It usually catches up if I'm patient. My circa 2010 desktop with 18 GB and 2 GB GTX 1050 does just fine. Point being, sometimes it's the combination of texture size and settings in combination with graphics card setup that just throws things for a loop. I went in recently and made some major changes on my laptop to the nVidia settings (M2200 Quadro) and it's made things at least usable. Any progress on your update? What are you looking to fix? I do agree with some users thoughts on water performance. I had no problem landing, but the only way I was able to take off was to push the engine to max (46in). Followed the POH recommendations on pulling all the way back to get up on step, only cure was power. I'm going to keep looking into it though. I didn't check weight, but I'd flown from MHT started with full tanks and only the pilot to Winnepesaukee, landed and took off again, so I'm sure I had burned off some fuel. Thanks for all this work you did. I totally give props to the OZx team, BEAUTIFUL paintjobs, and flew nice, but I had all the same thoughts you had when I went through the aircraft.cfg file.
  4. Navy Chief over at SOH hooked me up. Thanks, NC! It's basically just the 4 hangars, but that's a great start. I'm hoping I'll find the time and motivation and parts to create a more detailed '50's Saufley field. It was THE basic training field for the late '50's into the '70's and I think it really needs some treatment 🙂
  5. Yeah, I've looked everywhere I can think of. Can't find it. Thanks for looking!
  6. Hi, I've looked everywhere for this scenery. According to a post at Simouthouse, the file used to exist here. I guess it was lost in the great calamity and never reuploaded. Does anybody have this scenery file, and will it work in FSX? My dad trained there in the 50's and I'd like to fly around there. I know it's closed now and has become a solar panel farm. Thanks, Tom
  7. Modeling flight is an art. There are so many forces that need to be simulated and balanced, plus there are so many approximations that are made to get it to run on the computer in the first place, it's extremely hard to get anything "perfect". As you'll notice there aren't many really good aircraft designers out there who understand all the nuances involved.PMDG is one of the most respected system modelers out there. If they say they've done the best they could to approximate the flight characteristics of a 737, I'd believe them.Could somebody do a better job? It's possible (but not entirely likely). Maybe they could get turning to better approximate what you are expecting, but my intuition tells me that if they did, performance in some other area would suffer.As with the design of anything, there are compromises and choices to be made, and the answers to those compromises and choices depend on your priorities. If it's true that turning performance is not modelled well, my guess is that cruise, fuel consumption, takeoff and final approach performance had a higher priority for PMDG than turning performance had.I have heard time and again that turning is not well modeled in FS in regards to bank angle and time to turn, and that the problem still exists in FSX.Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)N15802 KASH '73 Piper Cherokee Challenger 180
  8. My 8800 GTS 640 works fine. (???)Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)N15802 KASH '73 Piper Cherokee Challenger 180
  9. Mr. Heath,I'm sure you understand what you are talking about, but for those of us who don't, could you please add a little more explanation about what this is for?Thanks,Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)N15802 KASH '73 Piper Cherokee Challenger 180
  10. For those out there who are also struggling with this, or read your thread and became interested in doing this, it's nice to also remark on HOW you sorted out your issue. No matter how silly your mistake might seem to you, I can assure you there are a thousand guys and gals out there who made the same mistake and couldn't figure out the answer.I assume you either:1. Weren't providing a unique GUID for each camera?2. Weren't titleing/numbering the cameras appropriately?Thanks!Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)N15802 KASH '73 Piper Cherokee Challenger 180
  11. So Tom, I like the comment above, lol. I wonder if there's a way of putting yellow "police" tape around the dead threads like this (no offense intended). Move along, move along.In defence of threads like this, however, often times around here, english is not the first language, and that doesn't help. And then there are times when even if english is the first language, you get what seems like a good thought, but it just doesn't quite get expressed in written word the way it sounded in your head. It would be nice to have a delete function sometimes.Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)N15802 KASH '73 Piper Cherokee Challenger 180
  12. Hi Phil,I find it amazing that you still spend time to read in detail through these forums and respond to people's comments, even though it's basically different people repeating the same things that have been said before (and often "wive tales" that I don't bother to pay attention to anymore (not a comment on anything said here, I haven't read it in detail nor put much thought into it)).Thank you Phil,Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)N15802 KASH '73 Piper Cherokee Challenger 180
  13. Hi Carlos,Different Tom here (we're everywhere). To ease your mind a little, I believe, and I could be wrong, but I have used it, the 3DSMax interface is very similar to GMax (GMax was developed from 3DSMax with less functionality). At least it was. I haven't seen 3DSMax for a couple of versions I believe. I do believe, however, that the price of 3DSMax is very prohibitive, and freeware would be virtually killed off. So I agree with you Carlos; on that point, it is also my opinion that a move to 3DSMax would be bad.Unfortunately, it may also be true that Phil's hands are tied on this, unless they want to develop their own tool. GMax is no longer supported, and perhaps they've caught wind that whoever owns GMax now will no longer make it available to the public?Phil - How about adapting Google Sketchup or something like that for the job? Hmm, perhaps a bad choice for a Microsoft company. But, in the interests of your user base, could it work?Tough problem this - the need for a very functional yet somewhat esoteric tool at a reasonable price.Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)N15802 KASH '73 Piper Cherokee Challenger 180
  14. True, true - that's what you are supPOSED to do...Let's see now, just where is that itemized list of everything I've purchased on the internet? hmmm.But no states around here have added a 20% tax anyway. Max is typically 8%.Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)N15802 KASH '73 Piper Cherokee Challenger 180
  15. Have you tried the AFG King Air 300? I created an FSX upgrade for it. The link to the upgrade is on this board somewhere and in the main forum for AFG www.alliedfsgroup.com . If the props bother you, I can edit that, too (I haven't really checked it out to see if there's any isssue).Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)N15802 KASH '73 Piper Cherokee Challenger 180
