    Personal impact of the MFS trailer

    I'm in line with what most of you say. I never loose interest in simming, but due to professional reasons and due to having a family, I often don't have the time to keep my platforms and add-ons up-to-date. I love P3Dv4 and have invested a lot in scenery add-ons like ORBX, AS as well as many payware airports and study-sim aircraft from PMDG and FSLABS. Most of these require updates whenever the platform updates, and after every update the sim performs better, but new problems arise until there is a hotfix, requiring another update. This is very tiring and distracts from what we really want: enjoy a smooth flight. X-Plane, which I own as well, makes a better job updating their platform. I have a couple of payware aircraft for x-plane and enjoy short and easy VFR flights without any flightplanning whenever my real life gives me an hour of spare time. I will stop investing in these platforms for now, until we learn more from MS, but at the same time feel sorry to do so for all those hard working developers who may hold their investments in developing new products. It was them who kept our community alive over the past 10 years. True, they made money by doing so, but that's no reason for blame. It's logical. My biggest hope for the new MS flight sim is - REALISM - a more automated way of keeping the platform updated I'm pretty sure the latter will be the case, and it's too early to tell for the realism part - but it looks very promising indeed. Another question of course is if I can or want to afford the PC with the requirements needed for this new platform.

    PMDG website password request

    I tired Chrome and MSEdge and both don't work. What happens is that on the pw reset page, after introducing the new password and confirming it, nothing happens after pressing "continue". Thanks Apologies. Me stupid. Did not match the password criteria. However, Chrome did not work for me. MS Edge did it.

    Aircraft label in outside view?

    Hi, Happens to me as well. This did not happen with the other PMDG or any kind of aircraft, right? Only the 747v3.

    Shaking in the Cockpit...

    It makes my cargo hauler feel like a real truck!

    Cargo Doors won't open

    I must a admit I had a too quick look at the introduction manual, did not see it, then searched the forums and arrived here. My doors are now open. I plead guilty.

    Split Scimitar

    I don't think Jack's question was so bad. Anyhow, the replies to his question weren't much better. My guess is that at some point in a (distant) future, we will get PMDG's rendition of the 737 MAX, which will include its winglets too. But that's just my guess.
  7. Hi John, 4 reddish Euro notes and almost a divorce. Thank you Hussein for your answer and tip on overclocking it. Will ask the builder if hè can look into this.

    [04APR15] Today we lost a dear friend...

    If our community had its own city, a monument would be built for Tom at its main square, and its airport would be named after him. My sincere condolences.

    Official PMDG 300ER Livery List

    According to RW pics of the same airframe it appears to be correct. This is a KLM Asia livery and the crown on top of KLM used on normal KLM liveries was taped over. I don't know if it's cleaner, but the blue of that tape has a lighter colour than the rest of the airframe. Best regards, Ralf
  11. Did you exclude ASN from your anti-virus software?

    PMDG 737NGX Livery Availability

    Thank you for calling me a fine painter I feel honored without deserving it. I might be able to become a fine painter, if the will and patience would be there. And the will sometimes is. True that my tools are bad and what disturbed me about Photoshop full versions are the monthly payments. I didn't know about this freeware version, so thanks for telling me. But my patience isn't back for the moment and I found somebody helping me a lot with creating the fleet I want. Someday the urge might come back. I discovered that it is fun to paint, but for the moment I rather fly than trying to do something others are much better at. Thank you again,

    Hi Steve, For the Atlas Air logo, I just send you two images by email in higher resolution with their logo. Don't know if they are any help getting the 'R' right...
