  1. It's definitely Goranized. I accidentally found the retractable cup holders whilst changing fuel tanks
  2. I am hazarding a guess on final to San Fransisco as I believe the San Mateo bridge is reflected in the fuselage,
  3. I spent a not inconsiderable sum on their full Boeing suite back in 2004. Despite a few attempts to contact them through their website to re-activate the software over the years, I never heard back from them. Your post just reminded me of their existence so I tried contacting them again through their online email and it just gave me this message "Illegal characters in POST. Possible email injection attempt" despite using my registered email.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. People have lives, sometime those lives do not always pan out in the way they expect. Its a pinned post btw
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Its interesting that the people that are constantly criticising your X-Plane shots are noticeably absent on this post. Very telling.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  16. I am sure the 8000 plus member of the XP Group I co-run would disagree. The vast majority of whom have joined this year from P3D/FSX world. But no matter, X-Plane is doing pretty well without the need for the big P3D devs. Despite that, quite a few are developing for XP including ORBX.
  17. Seems the Orbx 2018 Roadmap includes several XP11 releases including areas as well as airports https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/147038-orbx-2018-roadmap-115-screenshots/
  18. Having the same problems with Paypal. Seems to crash at the last payment window and nothing goes through.
  19. I think that those of us that frequent social media groups devoted to the various flight sim platforms have seen dramatic upsurges in the number of X-Plane users since the release of v11. Mainly from P3D/FSX. Thats not to say they are abandoning P3D/FSX but are open minded enough to use both platforms and can see the positive benefits in both.
  20. There is a certain irony in people loving P3D Orbx scenery screenshots without realising they were X-Plane and available for free. (Assuming these are from World2XPlane) Really looking forward to the reply from ORBX, should be very interesting. Assuming they don't just delete the post
  21. Now Tony from World2XP is saying they are his models over on the post at ORBX. The plot thickens https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/144238-eu-netherlands-photoreal-a-few-more/?do=findComment&comment=1273104
