  1. Can I disclose that I have not recieved confirmation? 🤣 .... 😠
  2. Can I ask how the A320 sounds are? Unfortunately the video doesn't feature them. I am trying to convert my own sounds via the TUTORIAL - Custom engine sounds, but am having zero luck. I am specifically interested in how the engines sound from the cockpit. Thanks guys
  3. Would i be correct in thinking that Orbx Trueearth UK already has extended night lighting, so i dont require this for the UK? Thanks
  4. Will Steam update it automatically? Sorry. Am still a newcomer to ASF2
  5. Great news, thanks! Will have to buy Florida DLC. Do you think ORBX are aware of this? Hope they can do something like this with upcoming TrueEarth GB.
  6. Thanks for the heads up. Can you tell me how to update? I see nothing in Steam.
  7. I cannot wait for this. What a superb simming experience Aerofly provides. Thanks for the heads up.
  8. Hi Guys I am just getting into native VR on X Plane 11 with Oculus Rift. In terms of set-up, what are you using? I have all sliders to far left and performance is passable, with the odd jitter. I can get about 60 FPS in non-VR no problem like this. I have seen YouTube videos that talk about Oculus Tray Tool, adding LUA scripts etc. My question is, should I bother with this? Isn't ASW 45 fps etc. built in? Why would I have to set this externally. I remember FlyInside had this as standard when I flew VR on P3D. Surely with X-Plane 11 native VR I should be able to use it straight out of the box. I have CPU - i7-6700K and GPU GTX 970. Thanks in advance.
  9. Great shots. How is your performance here? My frames are poor with the FF a320. At medium settings and an aerosoft airport I will get about 20fps. Let alone adding Ortho and X Europe... 😠
  10. Can't use the mouse?! Damn. I don't have the hand controllers and don't want them either...
  11. Any guidance on how to activate it? I downloaded the beta. When I put on my googles I get the oculus home screen. Thanks
  12. I just decided to do a flight from Nice, and the pushback guy has a French accent! This plugin is awesome!
  13. Yeah, I believe you mate...http://www.avsim.com/topic/359067-cockpit-extras/“This type of thing has been said before, but I'll say it again:1. We used the exact measurements from the blueprints, checked against the real airplane. We didn't just eyeball this.2. Perspective and shapes ALWAYS get distorted when you're projecting 3D geometry onto a 2D surface. There is no way around this - you're not seeing a real 737, you're seeing a 2D computer monitor - you do not have peripheral vision and you do not have 3 actual dimensions. There's always distortion when you do that. Ryan Maziarz”
  14. Please fix the cockpit geometry. Windows are way too big. 737 flightdeck is cramped.
  15. Hope the ngx update will include fixed cockpit geometry. Listening to Randazzo in that video talk about every last screw and switch must be modelled to perfection, and all the while i’m staring at a windscreen that doesn’t resemble a 737 in anyway.
  16. Sorry, I meant first person. Yes, all of the Avatar views work. And yes, exactly at head height. It's perfect. You'll love it. I find it's really smooth. The only thing is I can't pivot with the joystick, only forward/backward and side to side. To pivot I have to use the Q and E keys which makes me a bit dizzy. I downloaded it but the colour level adjustment doesn't seem to be working. Nights are still really bright for me. Good for you mate. How much of an improvement are you seeing?
  17. You can indeed switch to Avatar third person view. Walkarounds will never be the same again. On a side note, i just landed Aerosoft Airbus at Kai Tak. Totally blew my mind. And so much easier than in 2D. Then I replayed it from all angles - edge of the wing, undercarriage. Totally mental
  18. Argggh. Just used up my 7 day trial before i discovered Flyinside. Gonna have to buy! Just watched the doc. Great stuff mate. Didn’nt know about that. Strange. I find that, if anything it is too bright. Especially at night. The PMDG cockpit is a little too bright.
  19. I haven’t tried the Avatar in VR yet. Will do so and let everyone know. I have had the Rift for a few months but didn’t bother trying with flight sim as some youtube guy said the tech won’t be ready for years. Saw people on avsim talking bout Flyinside and gave it a crack last weekend. Holy smokes! This changes everything. Even with the low resolution, the experience is indescribable. I cannot ever go back to monitor. Have tried Aerosoft airbus and PMDG 777 and they are both remarkable. You cannot get any closer to the real thing than this. I can almost touch the buttons on the overhead! The cockpit dimensions are incredible. Looking out over the glairshield. Wow. Landing is so different due to depth perception. I keep thinking i am coming in too high, cos the monitor just flattens things out. Performance is great. Setting are high. But to be honest, i dont care much for sharp scenery anymore. Just being in the cockpit is good enough. Even on external views in flight, the experience is immense. Flying alongside a ginormous 777 on the edge of its wing! Can’t wait for the 747! Even just sitting on the ramp is an experience. But yesterday i was in cruise on the 777 and was sitting looking out over the glairshield, a line of clouds ahead on the horizon and a thunderstorm below. Almost for the first time felt what a real pilot must feel when the are facing a long flight ahead and they simply stare outside as the time passes during their down time. Awesome! The future for flightsim is so promising. In a year or two the resolution will improve and we will have flightsim nirvava.
  20. It is disappointing. Frames are awful even with default aircraft. Hope a decent company makes a RJTT.
