  1. Thanks Ryan. Will look at adding the "Queen of the Skies " to my hangar.Chris
  2. howdy all,just a quick question.I own the pmdg 737 800/900 and am unable to save flights midway and restart with fmc in correct position. correct me if i'm wrong?i'm looking to purchase the 747. as the 747 is a long haul aircraft and i have limited time to fly am i able to save midway or at several points along the flight and resume with everything ok and/or in correct position (in regards to fmc)? my normal time per session is 1.5 to 2 hours and most of the 747 flights are well over this time limit.thanks in advance,Chris
  3. nice one. think this is the new add-on then!thanks for the advice Slugger.now to save for active sky! (birthday coming up!!!)browny
  4. anyone have any thoughts/experience on the PMDG + rc4 + fs2 Crew combination? looking at adding the fs2 crew for more realism (?? does it add this?) but not sure if it will run smoothly with PMDG, and rc4.any advice appreciated....brownyps- my hot water cylinder just blew up so apologies for the smell in the cockpit....no hot shower today...

  6. apologies. just read the sticky!my bad!browny
  7. just to clarify:I'm running on rc4, ver 4.2.3831 on fs9do i need this update or is it just for fsx?regards,browny
  8. I use a mesh by Holger Sandmann and Jonathande Ferranti. Works and looks pretty good. Its 38m Mesh using topo maps rather than SRTM Data. Do a search in avsim. haven't looked at any others recently- there may be better around now.Browny
  9. Hi all,Looking for freeware scenery for Gatwick EGLL. have searched avsim with no hits. is there any about?have FRM (FRF?) for Heathrow and like that. have they done any for Gatwick?cheers all and go the Eagles!Chris Melb, Aus
  10. hey all,have downloaded and installed the freeware "atr-42 christmas package" by Francisco S
  11. Thanks for your advice guys.since i fly the pmdg 737 you can't save flights anyway so that shouldn't matter. looks like a good product and addon.Nice vid Max! how do you get that "head movement" type view? also thought i saw a wing view angle- are the wing views standard in the aircraft model you were flying? dj
  12. nice one. think this might be my next add-on. like the realism of it all and so this should round it all off nicely. any probs with other add-ons- rc4, aismooth, freeware sceneries etc?the price looks ok too...dj (aka Chris)
  13. Well, i'll hang about until at least SP1 for Vista is released then will be confident about its performance and security, then might upgrade, purchase and install it (looking at at least 12-16 months). Microsoft likes to use its customers as (beta) testers. i'll wait for all those buyers to (beta) test it for me. As others have said (or not):FS9:- sensational add-ons for reasonable prices- most of us have got it nicely tweaked for our machines (finally!)- good scenery (have seen some dx10 shots but who has those machines anyway?)- realism from add-ons (i'm running- rc4, pmdg 800/900, aismooth, various scenery addons mostly freeware- check out VOZ! looking at fs2crew at the mo...) - plenty of freeware for those of us who work a casual job- a little lacking in scenery detail but more than adequate/real with addon material (free and pay)- i could list more but the beer is making me sleepy...FSX:- Demo struggled on my machine (lack of RAM possible cause..not FSX)- can't see any real improvements apart from (well)detailed scenery (after running it on my mates "high end" machine)... but I'm after realism in the flight model...atc, sids, stars, real-life procedures, flight dynamics and responses, weather, cockpits - this hasn't really improved in FSX. i don't give a rats for a hang glider dropping balloons full of urine on platforms over the superbly detailed Appalachian ranges.- Adventures?!?!? what the?- it does have the A320, haven't found a good add-on for FS9 yet, free or pay. (suggestions welcome)- some addon developers only releasing for FSX (pmdg?) or are they rethinking this point?- need to spend lots on a machine/product/platform to get a little.....anywho,thats my beef,djbrowndog (Chris, VIC, AUS)mmmmmm.....BOAGS!
  14. hey all,Fly the PMDG 737 800/900 exclusively with rc4. worth adding fs2crew for another level of realism?pros and cons?cheers,chris AUS
