  1. I'm really excited about the PMDG 737's arrival to MSFS. I don't have P3D, and was holding out many years for it to arrive on X-Plane. But now it's coming soon for on my new sim I'll definitely get it.
  2. I'm really excited about MSFS2020 but kinda of disappointed that it might not support VR, which I can understand ... I hope that it will eventually support it, but not going to hold out hope for it. That's why I'm likely to keep using X-plane for the foreseeable future.
  3. I recall the developers saying that you will have to wait until Vulkan/Metal. The other alternative is to run a different OS such as windows or Linux which has support for VR.
  4. Update your version of x-plane! Why on Earth are you running such an old build? If you have been keeping up to date with your other system patches and driver updates, but fail to also update x-plane along the way, you are eventually going to run into compatible problems.
  5. If the format of those files hasn't changed then they will still be compatible with the software.
  6. Isn't there a more formal system to report activation issues than a forum? Forums aren't exactly the ideal place for customer support especially if the dev's don't frequent them.
  7. According to your log file this helicopter is now giving you issues: G:\XPlane10/X-Plane 10/Aircraft/Helicopters/Bell 407 SP1/ As the plugin is crashing at this point
  8. Its crashing because this file 'external_tanks.png' is missing, maybe try reinstalling the helicopter?
  9. Apparently, the upcoming xEnviro 1.10 is supposed to have procedural-based snow build-up linked to live weather. However, if this software comes out in late-spring -- we're probably not going to be seeing much snow 😄
  10. The scenery generated by W2XP is overlay scenery and should exist by itself in a folder in your custom scenery folder. You don't and should not need to import this into World Editor (WED) ... if you need to make an airport just create a separate folder for your airport and build it there, and then edit your scenery.ini file so that your airport folder is listed above the folder with the W2XP generated scenery. I suggest looking at some videos about how X-Plane's scenery works, this should give you a better idea of how you can add your own custom scenery to sim.
  11. The next Xenviro will do real-time snow accumulation, even on orthophotos. Swapping textures for different reasons will soon be a thing of the past.
  12. FSW's problem was that they closed the platform, made it purposely incompatible with ESP-based addons, and then proceeded to waste a lot of time re-inventing the wheel. Pretty much repeating the same mistakes that caused the demise of MS Flight.
  13. I'm very doubtful that the inclusion of PBR would have resulted in any meaningful shift in the results of the survey, it not as a significant improvement as the move to 64bit was over a year ago. There are other factors at work for instance market availability, P3D isn't sold outside of Lockheed Martin's website, X-Plane is sold on steam and is often goes on sale for $40USD or less -- this lowers a barrier to entry for many people. Also, it's difficult to maintain 2 platforms (especially if the average user is spending around $200 a year in addons)... overtime people will tend to spend more time in a single sim.
  14. I can run with shadows and full autogen without micro stutters, so I'm very happy.
  15. If it crashed and you just left it at that without filing a cash report, then the issue might not get resolved. Squashing bugs is kinda the purpose of the beta.
