  1. The usual moans about delays for the UFT despite their intention that it will a) be compatible with planes they havn't even started on yet, and b) be MUCH more than just an EFB (the clue is in the name UFT). Maybe wait until we've it got it and actually know what it can do before dismissing it? The constant cries of "other developers did it before breakfast" are totally meaningless until full functionality can be compared.
  2. 11 Nov 1982 - observing the silence for Remembrance Day of course! We'd lost soldiers, sailors and airmen that year thanks to Argentina and the Falklands so Remembrance Day was more notable than usual. Also 2 months into my new career which would occupy me for the next 40 years.
  3. I still use it along with MSFS because of "horses for courses" and MSFS has a severe shortage of quality study-level long-haul addons. This weekend we have a 5,000nm group flight that we'll do on Vatsim and I have nothing for MSFS that I would trust with a flight of that length (well, other than the DC-6 and I aint using that!) . so I'll use FSX and have a wide choice of aircraft such PMDG 777 or 747 although I'm actually tempted to get the LevelD 767 out of retirement!
  4. The pricing suits me perfectly. Previously PMDG forced me to buy the 800/900 in order to get the 6/700s that I really wanted. I now have what I wanted for less than I paid in FSX 10 years ago. Pretty happy with this arrangement.
  5. A British Airways 380 flew over my house yesterday climbing through FL150 en route Vancouver, I believe. Defo BA.
  6. You should always check what Simbrief is giving you! It is not God and cannot be assumed to be correct at all times.
  7. For the Asobo devs to spend a week with some seasoned long time simmers and their systems so that they actually understand what we're talking about when we ask for stuff. e,g, They've never understood what we meant by "Replay". They've clearly never seen Active Sky in use nor ever seen Hybrid measurements in use in an aviation context 🙄
  8. I just don't understand the apparent obsession with Simbrief and EFBs that are nothing more than convenient utilities. You'd think they were as vital as a pair of wings to succesful flight from the frothing on here. I've managed nearly 18 years on Vatsim in PMDG 737s without either utility but now suddenly anything which doesn't have both gets a good kicking. I don't get it #justsayin .
  9. Zero performance problems with the DC-6 here and my system is a geriatric i7-2700k/1660ti
  10. I've not seen such busted restrictions at all and since all my flying is on Vatsim one has to be on top of such things. VNAV does at all times work within the art of the possible and if one tells it to do the impossible then it will ignore it, it can't just stop flying. I've certainly never had it descend below a hard floor and if it were doing that as a matter of course then it wouldn't have been released.
  11. In PMDGs, black screens are usually an indication of, shall we say, a 'licensing issue". So the best way to fix it would be via PMDG, use their Support Portal as detailed in the documentation provided with the plane.
  12. Not by PMDG it wasn't, so whatever the source of that it is pure speculation. Face it, NOBODY KNOWS except PMDG.
  13. Except, as so often happens, that is NOT what he said. He is probably the most misinterpreted developer out there. SM is littered with people saying he's announced a release date and he just hasn't. Just like all the people who say they know the price of it. RSR knows he gets hopelessly misinterpreted so he picks his words carefully. FYI, he said he hoped we would have it BY next weekend with the usual caveat that it might not be if they find an issue.
  14. Of all the items on the sample lists above, there are only three that I am interested in #justsayin
