  1. I love the whole 'one world' thing however I'm also a bit worried. One of the things I used to love about FSX was VATSIM and flying in controlled airspace with only limited examples of idiots/griefers. I can just imagine trying to fly an ILS approach to Rwy 16L at YSSY only to be smashed by some word not allowed in a Cessna.
  2. Unfortunately this is the way of the world now (micro transactions) and is the necessary evil which allows MS to make FS2020 commercially viable. It can’t be all bad though - if it’s limited to liveries and stuff you only need to pay for what you want. I’m wondering if this is MS’s version of Steam where they do get a cut out of everything sold. Like I said though, this should hopefully keep the studio in business with maintaining 2020 and allows all the third party devs to bring in new stuff. Unfortunately though to have a look at where this is a bit overdone, just have a look at DCS (where you have to purchase every aircraft, map other then default and for stuff like WW2, the asset pack that turns it into WW2).
  3. I flew in one of these from YGLA to YBBN a few weeks ago - sat literally next to the port engine - was worried that I'd have my eardrums blown out but was VERY surprised - was pretty normal and/or quiet.
  4. hey mateThere isn't much in the way of updated scenery in fsx for Fiji other than the default, however there are a lot of smaller airports (in Fiji) which are missing :( I tried asking one of the scenery designers on the ozx forum but he isn't into designing any more - the best available is for FS9 however when I try to incorporate into FSX, you end up with airports in mountains and stuff.There is a pacific mesh available at Flightsim.com which does help significantly however the short answer to your question is no. I know pacific island simulations (I think is the name) is a small fsx scenery designer doing up airports but they haven't responded to my request for Fiji, however they are doing other airports around the pacific.The beauty of flying for Air Pac is the ability to take the -700's into small pac island airports.if you do find any, please let me know.
  5. she's a thing of beauty...well done again John. I've started doing Air Pac routes for my VA (TAAG) - did NFFN-NFTF (Tonga) and return last night - I spent most of the time just admiring the bird.
  6. John....that is just simply beautiful. thank you VERY VERY much!!! :) I shall be giving this bird a bit of a workout!!
  7. ha ha....I won't talk about my landing (which I did....just). lets just say I'm glad I ordered the 'arrestor gear' upgrade for my B737 so that my almost 1000 fpm 'landing' was easily absorbed. next stop? Queenstown!!! mwa ha ha ha ha *pees pants*
  8. lol Crankpin...take your time mate...I'm currently enjoying the Air NZ livery but not the approach into Windy Wellington
  9. c'mon baby....fingers crossed for the Air Pac B737-700 WL repaint...c'mon baby :)
  10. ahhh...you're a legend mate! funny how Air Pacific isn't that well known yet the Air Pac repaints still usually have thousands of downloads!! Really appreciate it mate.Cheers
  11. nice paint job btw mate...took it for a spin last night (YSSY-YBHM) and it looked beeeautiful!!.now if only I could get someone to paint the 700 WL model in Air Pacific colours *begs* :)
  12. hey guysis anyone able to paint an Air Pacific B737-700 WL? pics are on airliners.net (can't paste link here unfortunately).
  13. what do you do to get those landing lights? do you need to add shockwave lights to your CFG file? for me, the landing lights don't show up much.
  14. hey guys here you go...the beautiful Air Pacific Boeing 737-800 DQ-FJG Can someone please paint her?
  15. hey mate, someone actually did one and posted it on avsim. I was looking for something else and found it! looks awesome, but you have to install the old fashioned way. Still waiting for Air Pacific.
  16. errr....can anyone paint an Air Pacific livery? also a Pacific Blue livery (Pac Blue is the Virgin Blue arm based in NZ which flies NZ dom and around the pacific for VB). then I can rest easy :)
  17. lol sorry mate...my :( should've been ;) (these bloody emoticons).I'm going to have my hands full with QF and VA/VB flights that I won't get to Air Pac for a while...by then I'm assuming someone'll paint one.
  18. If I remember clearly FS2002 or FS2004 or something actually had a 'Landing' file set up in the default list of flights which had you all set up for landing - all you had to do was ride the ILS and/or change the a/c.Nothing like a big of landing practice aye? (you do 4 times the work than on t/o I'm sure).
  19. lol if you do pull off the grass landing, make sure you make a vid of it and stash it on youtube! :)
  20. agree. its all about having fun with FSX. I personally couldn't do without a/c addons just for the variety. There are quite a few free addons which are very well done (including helicopters from hovercontrol.com).
  21. thanks mate, I'll give that a try tonight. Cheers
