  1. Inibuilds sure are busy. A310, AN225, the upcoming A300 and now the A320 all in the last year or so. I'm guessing they must have a huge number of developers working on their behalf. Plus a fair amount of funding from Microsoft too I'm sure.
  2. Default Airbus engine display and nav display. Well, at least they put in a bit of effort to make the PFD look like the one found in the 717. 🤣
  3. I think you've hit the nail on the head here. Getting the EFB to work in a console environment must be a nightmare. I was always quite surprised they went down the console route with 737. But I guess there's money to be made there so they went with it even if it stalled the development cycle somewhat. It will be interesting to see what they do with the 747 and 777 on console as they are considerably more complex than the 737 in terms of systems.
  4. I don't understand why they haven't released any screenshots of the tablet yet. Surly at this stage, there must be something to show?
  5. Looking forward to those G5000 and Citation Longitude updates. Easily my favorite aircraft in the sim right now.
  6. TAB Airlines out of Bolivia are still flying an MD10 into Miami on a regular basis I believe.
  7. I feel like the door is wide open for another developer to take on the market with a Boeing product now. PMDG could really use a bit of competition in the sector. I really hope IFLY can bring their MAX out before PMDG for MSFS and its a solid product with no messing around waiting for EFB's or LNAV updates, just a solid product out of the box. I think its the kick up the behind PMDG really needs.
  8. I was at RIAT this year. It was such an awesome sight to see the B52 up close. They were saying in commentary how the B52 often damages the runway lights and it happened right there! 🤣
  9. Totally agree. The 737 definitely felt more solid in P3D overall. Autopilot was a lot smoother making turns, same with any pitch changes. Once you factor in Active Sky which made for a much more realistic weather experience and also allowed for a fully implemented WX radar. Just made for a more in depth simulation imo.
  10. I've definitely noticed a downgrade in ground textures at a distance since the sim first came out. I operate the sim with basically the settings it ships with. I found that It looked great with good performance, so i decided not to change anything. Over the last few updates, the sim has been looking progressively worse with the same settings. With my tinfoil hat on, I might say they are decreasing the visual quality of FS2020 to make FS2024 look that little bit better.
  11. It's another case of "if it ain't broke, dont fix it". I've seen it countless times where websites get an "updated" ui and it's a total disaster. I don't get why they had to change it unless they had some serious background issues with the old site.
  12. P3D+Active Sky+ PMDG ( or any other high end developer, FSLabs etc) is a winning combination for me. Personally, I feel the more higher end study level addons feel better in P3D. I'm not sure why. Maybe having a decent weather engine helps. The only thing keeping me away from P3D is the lack of detail in the default airports. I know this can be solved with addon scenery's, but its so much easier having up to date airport layouts out of the box. If they could bring the default airports up to the same level as MSFS with its accurate up to date aircraft parking and general airport layouts, I could see myself returning to P3D very quickly.
  13. It would be nice if they could include a virtual copilot to run checklist and do other non flying pilot duties, something like FS2Crew. Having something like this greatly enhances the experience and increases the immersion factor imo.
  14. I have it set to realistic, might try setting it to low. I really don't know what else could be causing it. Honestly, what I would give to have Active sky in this sim. The real world weather in the sim has been a constant source of problems.
  15. No, winds were forecast to be calm. Just seeing totally unrealistic changes in wind speed and direction. I'm going to try and change my turbulence settings and see if that makes a difference.
