    Looking forward to it Chock, I dabble in DCS (and die a lot there) and fly military aircraft in P3D as well but am never quite sure what to do with them.  

    When I'm in the mood for military, I love my IRIS A-10 Warthog, Loaded with weapons via VRS TAC PAC. Think I'll load it up now, Grand Canyon to Nellis AFB!!

    This at the moment imho the best GA aircraft for P3dV4 and eventually V5. PL21 is excellent as is the rest of the aircraft. While not cheap this will be by the hour used some of the least expensive fun you'll have in P3d. I was one of the initial purchasers many moons ago and the wait has been worth it. I flew in the rw the King air 90 & 200...wish I'd had a chance to fly this before retirement. if it fits your budget i think it will be money well spent.

    I have to agree with you. I bought the Milviz Beech KA350i way back when service packs were being developed. I gave up the Carenado version, and will never use it again. I think it's amazing!!

    Hi everybody,

    I tried several times to update my b744 and B748 with the help of the Operation Center. The server is not

    responding. Basically my internet connection is working. I'm using Kaspersky Antivirus. I excluded

    the OC2.

    The OC2 shows that there are updates. But after clicking on "check-now" nothing happens.

    I'm a little frustrated. I would really appreciate if you guys can help me.

    Thank you in advance.

    with regards

    Bernd Schwarz

    Try right clicking the OC and choose run as administrator, always works for me.

    Is it just me or does KMIA look HIDEOUS?

    It's not just you. I was waiting for someone to mention it!! "HIDEOUS" There's no uninstaller, had to delete all folders manually. I have no other KMIA add on's, so nothing conflicted, I just didn't like the quality. :sad:

    Thanks, Boomer.

  5. Has anyone else noticed this?...no matter how many times I do the update for SODE, the next time I open ORBX Central, the update keeps showing up! No problems updating any other products, just SODE. Using V4.11, but it's been happening in all previous versions.

    P3D V4.5 HF2

    Thanks,

  6. Hi, flesland. I found the answer to this after much frustration! All you have to do is right click the op center icon, and select "run as administrator".  Now it let's you download new liveries, and repair any orphan liveries after certain updates to the op center. Took me about a half hour of being annoyed, but that was the answer, for me!

    Thanks,

    Mike


  7. Because my Dad was a Navy pilot in WWII, My older brother had his twin engine license. They both used to take me up, and let me takeover!! Of course they had the pilot's seat and had it under control. I was around 10yrs old!! I started taking lessons to get my license when I was 20yrs old, My Dad died at only 49, then my older brother died in a car accident at 33yrs old. I never did take my solo flight for my PPL, felt like my inspiration was gone:pedih:. So, Other than carrier landings to remind me of Dad, I recreate the flights that I took with my brother. Same plane, same airport(KGFL), near Lake George, NY. The great Adirondack Mountains!!!

    So that's my reason. Plus I love airplanes!

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Thanks for the feedback. Apparently not my imagination. I was quite satisfied with AS and REX4. Only decided to buy the REX5 stuff because of sale. I do love the look of the sim with the REX5 Addons. I'll have to fiddle with setting and try some of the suggestions above to see if I can't come up with a P3D Setting file specifically for Overcast stormy conditions.

    Hello, Avidean. I found the best advice here as far as settings if you have both REX4 and REX5. Works great for me.

    Live weather doesn’t seem to work on fox steam anymore can anyone help.

    kind Regards

    Nick Mathias

    Hi, Nick. If you are talking about the newest Beta for FSX Steam, Start a flight, go to world-weather from the drop down menu, then select real world weather and select it from there. Check the real world weather updates every 15 minutes. That works, and you get notified every 15 minutes when it updates.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Looks about equivalent in details to Orbx Netherlands for Aerofly FS 2 (but the building textures seem quite low-res) Blowing up the image also shows several areas with no buildings.

    A tentative conclusion is that Orbx and others could probably compete well in high quality city and airport creation for this sim....

    Especially as they would not be paying for orthos, which is a lot of the cost.

    I totally agree, coincidently I was just thinking the same thing! Equivalent in detail to Orbx, but with all of my Orbx products, plus FSDT, Fly Tampa...etc. Weather addons, and so on, I'd say equivalent or less in some areas.
