    GSX Level 2 hmmmm......

    If you're missing it, then so am I. This is the biggest negative I see with this product. I'm not saying it's a fault of the tool itself or means it is not worth it. And maybe it's not possible for GSX to replace jetways on its own. But man, that is a lot of time for us to spend ourselves.

    Ortho4XP for FSX/P3D

    Yes. It will work with P3D v4. Yes, point the config at the resample from the P3D v4 sdk(though I think it would work w/ earlier versions too but you might as well just use the latest version of the sdk).
  3. Check your aircraft.cfg file. In there, look for the particular livery you are using and verify that it has an 'airline_park_codes' entry and that it has the proper 3 letter code for your airline. I'm not totally sure now that 'airline_park_codes' is the correct entry but it's something like that. Most of the repaints for liveries do not include this entry unfortunately. It's up to the painters to put it there and most don't. Past that, then the airport needs to have your airline code assigned to some gates there. So, for MIA, if you're flying an American Airlines livery, you should have 'AAL' in the aircraft.cfg -> airline_park_codes and then MIA should have gates that have 'AAL' at it. Being that this is a good 3rd party developer for that airport, I would assume that they have assigned the proper gates. If you want to double check, you have to open the AFCAD file(s) for that airport and check. Again, I can't remember the program now that can do that for you but if you google for AFCAD editor, you should be able to find it.

    Another ORBX sale soon?

    Can anyone comment on South America? I've been flying around the US and EU for so long now. I'm looking for a new continent to explore.

    Ortho4XP for FSX/P3D

    Ah, ok. I see what you're saying now. You win! (Kind of :)) Though I think in this particular case, it's probably easier to continue on with the code base that has already been working with than to try to start generating kml files and using those. That's better left to another application I think as the process used by this app doesn't need another way to get this data. It already is doing that on its own. You're right. It could have been made to use FSET. But this was originally developed for XP and is now being made to generate ESP photoreal. So I think it's already too far down the line to make it worth while to switch now. As I said, it's already doing the portion where kml/FSET would be needed in its own way. So why go back? Or am I still not on the same page as you yet? :)

    Ortho4XP for FSX/P3D

    You and I have much different definitions of simple. LOL. Well, actually, you're right...it's not hard to draw lines. But try doing that for entire continents!! That's a lot of patience. And patience is definitely a virtue that I lack! :) This application figures that all out for you...at least in regards to water masking. Maybe you are trying to do more yet?

    Ortho4XP for FSX/P3D

    Maybe so. I've used FSET myself so I agree. That works. However, it is nowhere near as simple in my opinion as this app is. Whether it's re-inventing the wheel or not, it's doing so in an easier way for us users.

    But who defines the KML? How is that created? Does this exist already on the internet like OSM data does?

    Ortho4XP for FSX/P3D

    Yeah, I am not sure what you don't get Chris? This tool is about as simple as you can get from a user perspective. All you have to do is select what "tile" you want photoreal for and select some options and go. To create something that converts OSM to KML and then have the user have to use FSET to then generate the tiles just adds steps and confusion for the same result. This tool makes it very easy. It's one of the big reasons why people prefer X-Plane over ESP products because of how simple this tool has made it to create such beautiful scenery for free. Obviously for X-Plane, it does autogen too. When this tool does that for ESP(I believe it is planned, right kjjj11223344?), then we will have the same great scenery we have in X-Plane for ESP sims and in such a simple way to create it. What would generating kml first and using FSET do that this can't already? I'm curious.
  11. When you're talking about Mother Nature, anything is possible. So, yes, this is you assuming that there aren't that many thunderstorms in an area really. Mother Nature can produce any range.

    What is a 738

    738 is the IATA Aircraft type code for a 737-800. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ICAO_aircraft_type_designators
  13. This has been very interesting as someone who looks at PMDG as ONE of the great developers in our hobby. But not the only one. Don’t get me wrong. For the record, I love PMDG products and would not want to lose them. But, for the first time(?) PMDG has to hear criticism. The people that think PMDG walks on water have to hear criticism. None of you are used to this, it appears. Everything PMDG has done has just been automatically accepted as the “next best thing” before it’s even released. Well, not this time. Again, for the record, I am interested in learning more about this product. I may love it. To me, it sounds like a good idea and something I have been looking for. But, come on, you have to realize that not every one that is a PMDG customer is going to want this or use this for whatever reason. It’s a niche of a niche product in our community. So, why can’t you understand why it’s going to met with some criticism? Why is not ok for people to question it? The reactions to the negative reactions here just seem to me to be a little hypocritical. Maybe that’s not the best way to describe it. But it just is very interesting watching this at the very least. I hope this isn’t taken as a post completely against PMDG and its followers. It’s not meant to be that. Just an observation from someone that doesn’t sit on either side but does recognize the general belief here that PMDG can do no wrong. They are great! ONE of the best! But they aren’t perfect.
  14. Can anyone comment on the latest version of the X-Crafts e175? For normal day-to-day operations, how is it?

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    Is this something that is broken and will be fixed? Or, in other words, do they plan to make it so that those of us that would like to keep HDR on don't have to turn it off just to use their plane? I'd hate to have to keep remembering to flip back and forth.
