    Whats the average age of our community?

    I was interested by this survey but wondered if it would be skewed by the fact that forums are generally an older crowd and social media attracts a younger crowd. I run a big XP11 Facebook group with close on 9000 members and decided to do a similar poll there. The results suggest there is a much higher percentage of younger users than the poll here shows. In my experience of running the group we have a huge number of young enthusiasts. These are the results, although its an X-Plane group I would expect similar results in a P3D or general flight sim group on social media. 10-20 - 68 21-30 - 101 31-40 - 101 41-50. - 117 51-60 - 49 61-70 - 28 71-80 - 5 81-90. - 1

    RAF 100 Tour, Part 2

    Actually its 100ft for fixed wing and ground level for helicopters in the Tactical Training Areas during operation hours. Any other UK non-controlled airspace is 250ft for fixed wing and ground level helicopters.

    Any new word?

    People have lives, sometime those lives do not always pan out in the way they expect. Its a pinned post btw
  4. I agree with you. Some of their replies to genuine XP queries have been downright rude. Whilst we know PMDG are famously tight lipped about developments, some of their put downs when asked about future plans and updates to the DC6 smack of arrogance. They don't have to tell us XP users anything but they could say nothing in a nicer way.

    AVSIM.ru, AVSIMRUS.com and AVSIM.su

    Living in Ukraine I was at the receiving end of that ban. For quite some time I was not able to access Avsim directly. But the thing is I just used a VPN which is what the bots and trolls would do anyway. Banning entire nations from access is a sledgehammer approach that alienated a lot of simmers. Its no surprise that they decided to go it alone. The sites mentioned have some very good Eastern European freeware that I have not seen at Avsim and I have never had any issue with their downloads.
  6. The tags in the title say it's XP11
  7. As the title suggests, the first Orbx product for X-Plane is now out. https://orbxdirect.com/product/kcgx/xp11?utm_source=orbx&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=kcgx_xp11_release
  8. Not yet, its ready but there is some issues with the creating a new installer http://forums.x-pilot.com/forums/topic/13915-saab-v15-status/?do=findComment&comment=126518
  9. Its interesting that the people that are constantly criticising your X-Plane shots are noticeably absent on this post. Very telling.
  10. And here we ago again, bashing someone for posting screenshots (in a screenshot forum) Now heres the thing, you can see the title and name of the original poster before you open the post. So to come in and comment on the post you must have made a conscious decision not to ignore it. Odd given your obvious dislike for Filou and his images
  11. A perfect answer to your critics
  12. Keep posting, they look great

    You do not know your Sim.

    He has not once denigrated another platform or another simmer. He has simply defended himself, with some dignity from what appear to be pointless attacks.

    You do not know your Sim.

    Exactly, I know Filou from my X-Plane Facebook group, his English is good but it is not his native language. He simply likes to post nice looking X-Plane shots to demonstrate how it can look. The Avism screen shot forum should be a place for just admiring the visual beauty of our chosen sims not for for getting pedantic over the wording of a sentence or colour of a screenshot.
  15. Want to give a little shout out to the excellent customer service at Laminar. Yesterday having upgraded my computer's Mobo and CPU I could not find my serial email. Normally I am fastidious about saving them but this time it went wrong. Sent an email to Laminar with expectations of hearing back within three days. However, my key was sent to me within 30 minutes and on New Years Day. Superb service from Thomson at Laminar.
