  1. Hey Tony. I would say go for it. I'm about to do the same thing on my AM4 motherboard but Im going from a 3600 so will see more of an improvement. Am not using VR tho so can't comment on that but all the benchmarking and reviews I've seen show it's a decent boost and the price for the 5800X3D is reasonable. This is pretty much our last shot at an update without swapping m/b also so might as well huh?
  2. I currently have Paulo's Campinas Viracopos SBKP, Rio Santos Dumont SBRJ and Salvador (SBSV) and can confirm all work nicely in v5.3 Am going to pickup Joinville SBJV and Fortaleza SBFZ in this sale as a result, am having a bit of a Brazil fest in the sim at present
  3. To the OP - I bought Tijuana before xmas and really pleased with it. Running in v5.3 Can also recommend Guadalajara by the same guys. I've had a bit of a Central America spend-up lately and also have their Culiacán / MMCL (following the recent cartel arrests at the airport it grabbed my attention, works well in v5.3) and their MMMX which I see you guys are discussing re various fixes (it looks great considering its FSX and is an interesting airport to fly in/out of). Their Monterrey / MMMY is also worth a look, I have that too and only needed a wee delete of some default /scenery/**MMMY**.bgl files to get it working. Another couple of nearby sceneries I'd suggest are La Aurora / MGGT from SierraSim and Merida / MMMD from MexHighFlight. Both work well in v5.3 and have some nice texturing and modelling. Loads of fun flying to do in this area and loads of real world routes back up to the USA from here.
  4. As per subject line, lots of P3D and MSFS titles for half price, get some !!! https://latinvfr.com/ (I'm going for the Miami P3D upgrade, have a much older version that doesn't qualify for update sadly)
  5. Yeah 300s. One option you could consider OP is merging the CS 737 panel with the HJG models and repaints that they have already for the Qantas freighters, that's what I've been doing recently.
  6. Looks fantastic Gerard, if it wasnt for the crazy download caps in New Zealand I'd be grabbing these files :)
  7. Oh dear, another PMDG Dash8 thread .. jeeze .. after all this anticipation I hope they dont pull the project
  8. sorry lads, I'm not usually one to get in on these speculation threads, but this topic does interest me, so here goes my $0.02 :LMAO: The 787 has to be a given right, and just a matter of timing. I imagine the 77* & 748 projects will keep them busy enuff that an entire new project (other than the DC6) wont see the light of day this year. Seems like despite so few of the 787s are in the air that with PMDGs decent relationship w Boeing and operators (who is their partner operator?) that they'll get peformance data soon enough. I reckon there'll be pressure on them though to let the 77*/748 sell in the market for awhile before they distract buyers w the 787 so if I were a betting man I'd say late next year for the 787 release :Thinking: The Airbus family just have to be out, lets be honest, I'd bet my house (if I actually owned it) on PMDG NOT releasing an Airbus of any shape inside the next 2-years. So apart from the 787 will there be another filler project like the DC6? Regional jet wise there seems to be way too much competition in the BAE146 area. I suppose a ERJ/CRJ entry is possible, lots of variants to model and sell and I think PMDG would probably secure customer orders away from the FeelThere offerings, and there are plenty of these in American and European skies to appeal to punters. In turbo-prop land either an EMB120, Saab340 or Metroliner (one of those underway elsewhere) would be fantastic as would a Dornier 328 prop or jet but not sure there'd be that much visibility or demand for them customer wise. There is a gap re the L-1011 Tristar but that seems like a big commitment and would kind of scavenge sales of the MD11 wouldnt it? Also cant see much likelyhood of a Russian airliner release (TU134/154/204, An148, Il76/96) which are fabulous machines but would the realistic systems modelling mean virtual western pilots might be put off coz its so unfamiliar? From the videos and interviews lately it seems like the Dash8 would be a canididate (as would a replacement for the Flight1 ATR), they're clearly started virtual construction on it, but the message from Rob didnt seem overly optimistic which is a shame coz the Dash is such a great aircraft. Now I know it'd hardly be a "filler" project, but I bet that between the 77*/748 and 787 releases that they'll announce a 737 classic series. It DEFINATELY fits the "aircraft people see" criteria, hardly a day would go by when a spotter wouldnt see one, and the Wilco Evo although an improvment (IMHO) leaves a lot of detail holes to be filled by someone like PMDG.
