  1. Sometimes I wonder why I stopped posting on AVSIM... Then I see a topic like this come along, and the eternal flamewar that follows, and I immediately remember why. This topic, and especially the answers held within, have made my decision as definitive as it ever was. So long, AVSIM.
  2. Thanks for the, very valued, opinion guys. They confirmed the thought I had.... Time so shell out, I guess.
  3. Thanks for the response, Ken! I'm quite hesitant to upgrade my graphics card. I have my setup running pretty smoothly these days, especially FSX, so I'm rather picky about installing a new piece of hardware in there. I'm afraid there won't be much else in terms of options, though. I have my eyes set on a TITAN Black for a rather good price (about 800 EUR), so that might be an option. In any case, I'm glad you're so fond of the monitor, that gives me confidence about having made the right choice (though the decision between curved or flat is one I still have to make).
  4. I am considering buying an LG Ultrawide monitor (34UC97 or 34UM95, most likely). While I'd love to go for the curved (UC) version, I have to take into account some productivity work (Photography) as well, where the curved edge might hinder me in seeing straight lines, well, straight. I'm also questioning whether or not to replace my GPU setup with a new card. At the moment, I'm running two GTX 580s in SLI, which is still a rather powerful setup for 1080p, but I'm wondering whether they'll be able to drive the new monitors. I'm considering swapping them out for a single GPU, most likely a GTX 970 (I'm aware of the 3.5GB issues, they wouldn't affect me too much) or a secondhand TITAN. If I do need to change my GPU setup, a 900$ investment (only the monitor) suddenly becomes a whole lot more expensive. On the CPU side of things, I'm still fine in my opinion. While I'm running a rather old CPU (2600k), it's still chewing up everything I throw at it, and then some... I'd like some honest opinions about these suggestions. I've let my hardware knowledge slack off in recent years, and getting up to speed again is proving to be rather tricky.
  5. He asked for the next classic aircraft, not the next aircraft in general. Also, you need to sign each and every one of your posts in the PMDG subforums with your full, real, name, else they might get deleted, and they often do.
  6. Like many others, my jaw dropped when I read this thread. Even though I have never met you in person, the legacy you built up in AVSIM speaks tot he kind of guy you were. We've only spoken a few times, but each and every time, it was clear to me how much AVSIM meant to you. Like many others, I thought, hoped, you would overcome this, that it would only seem like a little bump in the road a few years from now. Like many others, I read your previous announcement in disbelief. If only we were right... Blue skies forever, and a safe last flight, Tom.
  7. The reason why it is a "clock shop" has been explained... In this very thread, even. If you want something more modern, you'll have to wait a little while longer. Rest assured, it will come.
  8. Are you flying that in real life? As far as I know, Delta never owned 736s. In any case, I'm afraid I can't help you. If it's not in the AVSIM library, it might be worth shooting an email to a few painters. You never know...
  9. When there's news to share, PMDG will share it in a stickied post at the top of the PMDG General subforum.
  10. Contrary to what most simmers seem to think, in most modern day jetliners, the engines are barely audible in the cockpit. First of all, they're drowned out by the various heating and cooling ducts blowing air all over the cockpit and associated areas. Secondly, the acoustic isolation in modern jets really is very, very good. So good in fact, that you nearly can't hear the engines starting on the flight deck of an A320. We were doing an engine run on an A320 yesterday, and the only noticeable sensory cue, apart from the instruments of course, was the faint rumble you could feel going through the aircraft while the engines were spooling up.
  11. Guys, as per the forum rules, you need to sign your posts (every post) with your full name. If you don't do this, I doubt many people will help you, and you even risk deletion of the post/topic.
  12. Reread the quoted post two posts above yours, and who actually made that quote....
  13. Splitting hairs here, but it wasn't 20 fps PER clickspot, it was 20 fps for this amount of clickspots (extra).
  14. I'm not part of PMDG, so I can't speak for them, of course. However... I HIGHLY doubt that will happen. There may be a package where you can buy the FSX/FSX:SE/XPX version together, since those will probably fall under an entertainment license. P3D being the way it is, however, would mean the licensing conditions coupled with the purchase of said add-on, would be entirely different than those included with the FSX(SE)/XPX product.
  15. Like I said... OPUS (or another developer, my mind is pretty cloudy when it comes to names) was working on adding it to the add-on they provide. However, since they didn't work it out, there may be more to it than just a few parameters. The inability to see the actual source code might have something to do with it.
