  1. Well yea poll's like this are always a bit skewed but from my own personal experience I see many YouTube and Twitch streamers streaming much more X-Plane than they used to , there are many more places on the interwebs to get data from. I would like to see this exact poll a year from now to see if anything changes. 😉
  2. Well Laminar should be able to help. Is there anything in the log.txt file

    Holy smokes!

    Mine is converting at the moment. I'll post my FPS as soon as I have fired up the sim. I have a GTX1080ti + i7 6700k@4.5GHz Edit: Added some images and my settings. FPS is very good in my opinion 45 - 70 FPS depending on the view and using this aircraft Also running World Traffic plugin Screen Resolution is 3440x1440 Asus Predator monitor with G-SYNC

    FlightFactor B777

    To be honest you will find your answers quite quickly on YouTube reviews. Just type Flight Factor 777 in YouTube search But in short 1. Failure modelling, Only X-Plane failure modeling I believe so pretty useless if you are doing a type rating 2. FMC, The Flight Factor rendition is not indicative of the real FMC so if you are doing a real world type rating I would stick to that. 3. Electronic checklist? Yes but not sure how accurate it is. This video might help your decision.
  5. 1. Is there any way to set the above structure up in XP-11 via Settings/Keyboard/Views? No 2. It appears that each view needs its own unique key stroke Yes In my opinion you will get far more out of X-Plane by using the settings provided rather than trying to make it like P3D or FSX or whatever. It's just a different beast and does things differently You could try and search for a plugin that let's you cycle views. Or maybe your joystick/throttle controller has software that will let you do that? Also and it depends on your keyboard but you could setup a macro that when pressing 'S' it cycles through the keyboard shortcuts you are talking about. Did you see this? https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/15665-cycle-views/
  6. I run my sim on a 50" 4k TV and other stuff on a 32" monitor above it so put pilot2atc on that. The learning curve is not that steep and captain-K-man has done a nice tutorial for it recently. For me in any case it add's much more immersion I was missing with the current offering within x-plane which we can all agree is meh. It id $60 but includes flight planning. Give it a whirl, it's free to use for 10 days, nothing to lose.
  7. I think you are preaching to the choir :) You should complain to Laminar. I use pilot2atc now and it's fantastic. ATC from start to finish with more or less the correct ATC jargon being used. ATC in FSX and P3D is completely useless as far as I'm concerned. There is no correct spacing , correct sids and stars are not adhered to, you get planes landing just ahead of you and end up in countless go-arounds. My advice, go online if you want proper ATC badly enough or try pilot2atc, there's a 10 day trial period before you need to buy. I also heard that there maybe some WT3 / pilot2atc integration coming eventually 😉
  8. 1. Yes it's from my scenery_packs.ini. 2. Just create a folder "c:\ ========== hello world ==============" then make a reference in scenery_packs.ini by dragging a shortcut of this folder to your Custom Scenery folder :) They are not comments as such they are reference to folders I created to look like comments and separate my different scenery files. 3. The names do not match because I just chose a random excerpt from my ini file. I did not match up the screen shot and INI file references exactly.

    Drzewiecki Seattle?

    I was looking for something to replace my tired old X-Plane 10 Seattle payware. I fly often to and from SEA-TAC so I might give it a spin.
  10. Yes indeed I tried Pilot2ATC last week and think it's really good. I will purchase it at the weekend.

    Everest Park 3D

    That looks very nice!
  12. I'm not bothered about seasons. mostly fly in area's that have good weather and I use Ortho so seasons would not give me much. Weather for me is most important so I am pinning all my hopes on Active SKy for XP 😉 I think a lot of people don't really realize that it is in essence a small Dev team and there is only so much you can do. It is better not to promise too much and hand out surprises than promise a lot and not deliver. I mean if it was so easy everyone would be building their own flight sim right.

    PMDG DC6 and ver 11.25

    RsRandazzo is the only person I know who can fill an A4 with text and not say anything :) Not too bothered myself about PMDG as there are more than enough great developers developing for X-Plane at this time. Just give me decent weather, 😉 come on HiFi!
  15. Well to be 100% they are not baked into the scenery you can (After first having made a backup) 1. Open the Overlay Editor 2. Click Open scenery package icon 3. Select the Global scenery (You can navigate around using shift + arrow keys) once it's loaded. 4. Zoom in to an airport with your scroll wheel 5. If there are aircraft baked in select aircraft and delete. 6. Save the file
