  1. This. Mr. Kok's strategy and behaviour explained in simple words.
  2. Read the OP. He said he was looking forward to the 787 😢.
  3. I think this sums it up nicely. There are so many airports on my disk in P3DV5 that I have not flown to yet or at least rarely and with a hardware (mostly) cockpit I see no necessity to move into the unknown.
  4. I would have to agree with the OP's opinion at least to the extent that it is not worth 30 Euros in its present state.
  5. I used to go from flying Cessnas and Pipers with yokes to gliders and tugs with sticks many times during the same day without even thinking about it. It came naturally, really. These days I am flying everything in the sim with an Airbus type sidestick.
  6. Ahh, this is interesting. Thank you very much.
  7. This. Nothing beats the stick, neither side stick nor yoke. Pity I cannot find one for the sim.
  8. I guess you have your answers as to installation into V5 above. I have installed it the add-on.xml way, together with my other Thailand sceneries. Edit: Looking at my installation files, I just saw there are also two zip-files for P3D installation (from my simmarket account).
  9. Actually, I just used the normal installer(s) and then cleaned out most directories, to make it easier to see what happens. As I said, I have not registered the installation, so there are some entries missing in the Window's registry, which makes some (few) installers baulk. To your other question: Yes it is the the T2G scenery (file date 30-05-2020), just disregard the entry for Hongkong and Shenzen, that is a photoscenery for the area, by Realworld Scenery (RWS).
  10. I do not think so. But if I remember correctly, the old A_A VTBS is still working. Better than default.
  11. I have fake P3DV4/V5 (basically empty and not registered) installations on an another computer. I install all new sceneries there, it allows me to see what the installer does and then I move everything into a single directory on my main flying system. SODE files need to be moved separately of course. I then register the scenery with the Lorby Add On organizer. This works 99 % of the time, some installers won't work as not all value(s) for P3D are in the registry and I have not found the energy yet to go digging for them. Aerosoft sceneries are an exception, but they install nicely into their own directory anyway. And BTW here is my add-on.cfg for VHHH: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>HongKong</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>HongKong</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Effects</Category> <Path>F:\Addon Scenery V5\Hong Kong\VHHH - Chep Lap Kok\Effects</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Scenery</Category> <Path>F:\Addon Scenery V5\Hong Kong\Hong Kong and Shenzen - RWS</Path> <Name>Hong Kong and Shenzen - RWS</Name> <Layer>321</Layer> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Scenery</Category> <Path>F:\Addon Scenery V5\Hong Kong\VHHH - Chep Lap Kok\VHHH - Chep Lap Kok TERRAIN</Path> <Name>VHHH - Chep Lap Kok TERRAIN</Name> <Layer>322</Layer> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Scenery</Category> <Path>F:\Addon Scenery V5\Hong Kong\VHHH - Chep Lap Kok\VHHH - Chep Lap Kok Airport</Path> <Name>VHHH - Chep Lap Kok Airport</Name> <Layer>323</Layer> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document>
  12. So true.... I still vididly remember to this day: I was preparing to move to Hong Kong and on that day, I was asleep on a Swissair MD11 ZRH-HKG when I woke up to the smell of coffee in the cabin and the announcement from the cockpit soon after stating that we were going to land in Bangkok because "there is a typhoon in Hong Kong and a B747 floating in the harbour". Swissair rented a gate at Don Muang and we sat there being served by the cabin crew from the onboard trolleys (imagine that today...) for I do not know how many hours and of course we are were also allowed to smoke. Luckily Swissair had another crew available in Bangkok and in the end we took off again. The typhoon (number 3 only, so not sooo serious) was moving out, but the approach was still bumpy and the landing very firm. Sitting at a window seat on the right side I had the unique view of the more or less brand-new China Airlines B747-400 floating in the harbour just at the end of rwy 13 (see the Wiki article here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_Airlines_Flight_605). Unfortunately, I did not have a camera with me and mobile phones were not so in yet. When I flew out of Kai Tak to China a day later, they had already blow off the rudder, to make ILS approaches on 31 possible. The jumbo was lifted out of the harbour later and deposited in the far corner of the ramp. It stayed there for quite a while and in the end it was scrapped there. Alas, Kai Tak is no more. I had the pleasure to be at the Flying Club on the final evening of operations as the Dragon Air A320 landed as the last flight - I think they had a competition going as to who would be the last. Fond memories....
  13. I think I have installed most. My OCI directory (including the zip-files of bought aircraft) shows 43.8 GB, 276 Simobject folders (I do not always delete folders when I delete an airline), and 870 traffic files.
  14. Michael, you do know that Rainer (Simmershome) has created patches for at least some of the LLH altiports ? Have a look at screenshots VFR-Flightsimmers or directly on rainers website. I have not tried as I do no own any of the altiports.
  15. I think I have sceneries for all the Canarias airports except El Hierro and they all have nice views, particularly together with ORBX Africa. As I have always been a Simwings fan I am happily using their scenery for Tenerife South (including a simple GCXO), just installed into V5, btw.
