    Airlines that no longer exist--interesting

    CP Air, Eastern Provincial Airways and Pacific Western Airlines. All amalgamated into Canadian Airlines and that died about 20 years ago. Absorbed by Air Canada.

    Star Citizen’s Squadron 42 shows off a cinematic trailer

    I apologize for not writing with any details. I found this summary: But the lawsuit didn’t stop there. As stated earlier, in 2016, CIG and RSI had begun selling 2 games – Squadron 42 and Star Citizen Persistent Universe. Crytek said that since both games were using the same code, that constituted using the engine twice, resulting in further breach of contract. Like I said, it was from memory. As I mentioned months ago I was initially a backer and asked for a refund when I saw things going south. So, maybe previous lawsuits was incorrect term to use. However, after the refunds were issued, Roberts changed the TOS and I believe they did this on multiple occasions (and I could be wrong). It’s that way of thinking “I don’t like my rules so I’m going to change them.” I don’t follow this saga in depth but I do follow it out of curiosity. I look at both sides and both are fairly zealous as far as I am concerned. I am going to mention the name Derek Smart. For those who know the name or not, you have to take him with a grain of salt sometimes, but he did call out CIG/RSI. That resulted in Roberts issuing a refund to him without request. Smart did point out a lot of issues or irregularities that seem to be happening. You can go read his blog if you want more info. Yes maybe I was a little nebulous in my statement but I was correct in engine being used twice in two games. This is where I leave it.

    Well, CRYTEK (the engine) is suing CIG/RSI. From memory, CRYTEK only licensed on of their games and not the others. Previous legal judgements have gone against CIG/RSI. This saga will go on for years. We can all go on but there are two camps both with their strong opinions. But 6+ years and $$$,$$$,$$$’s, you’d think there would have been something substantial by now. My person opinion is that the original concept will never see the light of day, a seriously scaled back version is probably the best bet.

    Sim Acars Problem

    Is it compatible with 64 bit P3D? The website for sim acars indicates that the last build was 3 years ago to the day. Just a guess on my part.

    Favorite Aviation Movies?

    I’m surprised nobody mentioned this one: Zero Hour. I saw this movie, by fluke on TV. Black and White, made in 50s or 60s. I was half watching it when I noticed lines that I thought I heard before. Then, a young chap named Joey went to the flight deck and got a model airplane. Then it hit me, Airplane! was a complete remake of Zero Hour. I did some Googling and discovered that the makers of Airplane! bought the rights and made a spoof, almost line for line and scene for scene spoof. You have to see it to believe it. I liked the idea so much, I bought Zero Hour on Amazon and show it to people to see if they can figure it out. Most cannot believe it.

    Want CORRECT sounds!

    You are looking for specific sim sounds? I thought you were looking for videos. I think most sound developers are doing cockpit environments. Hearing the flaps or engines from Business Class are dying. But I do have plenty of Business Class videos from various AC aircraft.

    Pan Am TV show?

    My wife is a FA. We watched all the episodes. We both agreed, time of our lives we will never get back. My personal opinion. You’re results may vary.

    Star Citizen Charges $27,000 to Unlock ships

    I was an initial backer. Got my refund due to lack of financial transparency, scope creep, failure to meet deadlines and promises. There is a lot of information on the internet to provide facts. I’m not going to get into a lengthy discussion about this. I was once there like you. If you feel that logging in and landing your space ship on a couple of planets is the best use of $188 Million and 6 years, then that’s your opinion. You’re entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to mine. Mine are based on facts that you can search yourself.

    Star Citizen Charges $27,000 to Unlock ships

    $188 Million, 6 years and really nothing to show for it. $27,000 for some JPEGs. Funny, Vancouver was able to complete a rapid transit corridor in 4 years, 20 km long, majority tunneled, albeit for over $2.0 Billion. I would surmise that for $188 Million and 6 years, you would have the ultimate video game.

    Never will this be released. How many millions did they raise? How many years in development?

    Oryxsim CYLW Problem

    It looks as though OryxSim is no longer in business. If it’s allowed, I can post screenshots of my texture folder and you can go through the process of elimination

    Oryxsim CYLW Problem

    The airport had a bad texture(s). On their website or forum or somewhere they offered replacement textures and also explained the offending textures and I believe you could remove the offending textures. It was a summer related texture

    Froogle's take on FSW and possible impact on P3D

    He’s the guy that started the campfire story.

    Froogle's take on FSW and possible impact on P3D

    I was going to go there, but I thought I would stop. If there is ever a lawsuit, it will be MS suing LM. DTG will probably be a cheerleader on the sidelines.
