  1. Trust me, I've no intention of getting into that discussion 🙂 Sometimes it's enough just to throw in a cite.
  2. Merriam-webster.com: Is the Word awesome Overused? Many object to the use of awesome to describe something (such as a sandwich) that does not literally elicit feelings of awe. Yet the same people who insist that awesome should be used only of weighty subjects (Niagara Falls, man landing on the moon) will happily use the word awful in reference to something (such as a mess) that falls distinctly short of being “full of awe.” This weakened sense was once considered improper – in fact, complaints about it persisted through the early decades of the 20th century. The change in meaning that awesome is undergoing may be more recent than that of awful, but both words are treading the same path. For evidence that such change is normal, we need look no further than awe, which originally meant “terror” and now carries the weaker sense “wonder.”
  3. Excellent. Those old enough might remember the BBC's spaghetti trees.
  4. My only complaint is that I now don't know whether to buy this or one of the Spits! First world problems 🙂
  5. That's more than a fair offer. Deal done. Edit: Bought. Installing. Edit 2: and I now have post-update stutters that are affecting all my planes, so I will say nothing about this bird till I get that sorted. Plainly not a JF issue.
  6. I was going to grab this today, but the wildly differing views have me now in a quandry. There's an excellent You Tube video from an Irish instructor saying it's like the real thing; and a bunch of others saying it's nothing like it. I've seen amazingly crisp cockpit textures... and a bunch of criticisms that it's FSX/P3D level. I can't recall that degree of variation about pretty much any addon, ever (and I've been around a bit). I think I'm gonna wait. JF - if you want to sort out the waiters among us, I think you need to reduce your prices. £30 is FSX/P3D. Make it £20, and I'm in. I think that's the new world - and when the XBox version lands, it's going to make you a fortune. Sell more, for less. But the reviews are so wildly varied that I'm not prepared to go over the odds today for a sim where I can fly the CJ4 for nowt.
  7. Longfellow about MSFS: When she was good, She was very good indeed, But when she was bad she was horrid.
  8. And there I was thinking this was a bit of flattery for our hardworking Moderators... 😉
  9. Thanks Mace; I misread it. I thought the turbo was ONLY the PA III, but I now see the new one will include the IV. Decisions, decisions!
  10. Not being a forum cop but there's a release thread here: Just Flight PA-28R Arrow III (for MSFS) released - Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020) - The AVSIM Community Which might be a good place to continue this discussion. Just a thought.
  11. Aha, so trickily the thing is being discussed in the preview thread here: Just Flight Piper Arrow III Preview - Page 35 - Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020) - The AVSIM Community Where I think Xender meant to post the above to follow up his earlier post!
  12. Very nearly just pressed go, but I am thinking: do I need two of these? Shall I just get the turbo version? Anyone know what I'll be missing, if I only opt for that? If it's "faster and higher" and all else is the same, I guess I'll wait.
  13. Be aware that you can't simply choose an aircraft - but there are ways to tweak the files to change that. Otherwise you're stuck with the BT's settings for plane, time, weather etc. Edit: also: sounds an amazing choice!
  14. They do a good job with the dunes, though, I reckon! And for cliffs the same trip just took me past these: https://photos.app.goo.gl/Zw86WwMzPEbntW418
