  1. Yes, Captain Obvious. I am well aware that it will take far more effort to code realistic systems than just produce a 3D model, which is why in my original comment I stated that I wouldn't guess which year it would be ready. It might never be released as it may prove too ambitious a project, given the lack of source material to base the flight and systems modelling on. However, for everyone who hopes it does become a reality and is a success - WARNING: A380 HYPE http://imgur.com/C3TlU0N
  2. Anyone after a DC-9? Sky Simulations has just updated theirs to P3D v4. Might be of interest if you cannot wait for the FlythemaddogX MD-80 - it's the same thing, right?
  3. Adored Canada (and NZ), but I don't get the attraction with Vancouver Int'l - I found the design in most parts of the concourse gave a sensation of being boxed in, I don't remember being able to get that many views of the fantastic mountain scenery, but I do remember the ridiculously long queues / lines to go through immigration and the CBSA officer demanding to see my wife's qualification certificate which hangs on a wall some 4,500+ miles away at home! Best? Possibly Hong Kong, clean, airy and uncluttered interior (if a little soulless), lots of natural light and great views of Lantau Island through the many, large windows (a Norman Foster designed terminal), rapid clearing of immigration and customs and a great view of the entire city when on Westerlies approaches. My local LCY, is a chic dump - crowded, stuffed full with overpriced retail and shabby corridors to the gates. But what an experience on RWY 09 approach with the 5.5% glideslope and an altitude restriction of 2,000ft over London.
  4. Massive? Of course! It so big it has a wake category of it's own! (Sorry couldn't resist the joke) Because of the uncertainty regarding posting links now on Avsim, you'll have to search for "reddit+free pta alternative for p3d v4" and look for Matt Davies' comment "See here for an early render of the pedestal". He mentioned that he is looking to develop a study level sim on his twitch account in June and followed it up with another tweet in July. Whether or not that happens is to be seen. Fingers crossed!
  5. I'm aware it's all very subjective, however I am struggling with making a decision between: Just Flight PA-28-161 Warrior II Just Flight PA-28R Arrow III A2A Cherokee 180 A2A Cessna 172 I'd like to have a realistic experience, therefore could those of you with real life time on type let me know your favourites, please? Additionally, I like the idea of controlling carb heat and fuel mixture, with the occasional failure thrown in. Recommendations? Thanks.
  6. Oh? Going by this very early render of the centre console by Matt Davies, I don't think it will take that long at all - end of the year (not elaborating which year, mind). What I do know is that the battle between Aerosoft's and FS Labs' A320 products is going to be intense. Price and performance up against detail and realism? At which point the QW 787 and Majestic Dash 8 will probably also be released, causing me a massive credit card bill and a divorce.
  7. An A380 that can replicate ground effect conditions. As good as the Project Airbus one is, the thing slaps down hard on the runway without an unrealistic amount of sidestick back pressure in the flare to arrest the rate of descent. Failing that, the QualityWings 787 to live up to the hype. (It will, won't it?!)
  8. L-1049, Tu-134, DH Comet? There are some exotic aircraft on this thread! Here's my list. Mainly modern, but a few oldies here and there. PAX: Airbus - A306, A319, A320, A321, A332, A333, A343, A346, A388 ATR - 72-600 Avro - RJ85, RJ100 Boeing - B732, B733, B734, B735, B73G, B73H, B742, B744, B752, B762, B763, B764, B772, B773, B77W, B789 Bombardier - Dash 8-400 Embraer - ERJ-135, ERJ-145, E170, E190 GippsAero - GA8 Airvan Lockheed - L-1011 Tristar MD - MD-82, MD-88 Saab - 2000 Piloted: Cessna - 152, 172 Piper - PA-28 Cherokee
  9. Chris, that's astonishing! How have you managed to avoid flying for over 20 years? My first flight was LGW - GVA in April 1991. As a then 9 year old, I remember it being a big, noisy and quick aircraft. What stuck with me was the sensation of being pushed back into my seat as we accelerated on the take-off roll - something I've only rarely experienced since. And here's a pic of this incredible aeroplane: Given the stage length, it's now of no surprise that it took off like the proverbial rocket!
  10. +1 Thanks for taking your time to create a fix to the AI lighting problem irritation. I too find the lights unrealistic and am looking forward to trying your AI Lights Reborn v3.0
  11. krazyk, Thanks for uploading the sceneries, however Mega is giving me an error message. "Error: File is too big to be reliably handled in memory." I have signed up for an account on Mega as well, but still encounter the same problem.
  12. There aren't any files for YAYE in that folder - I only have 3 AFX files there for the other sceneries that I have downloaded. You should see files in C:\Users\Pete\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\FSDG-Ayers Rock\Scenery. The scenery.cfg file is irrelevant as the .xml install method doesn't create an entry in that file, so I don't understand why you have an error message. Did you try and manually add YAYE to scenery.cfg? Even if you didn't, remove any entry relating to FSDG from it. I moved my YAYE installation to the drive I wanted, but left the add-on.xml file in the original C:\Users\xxxxx\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\FSDG-Ayers Rock location. In that .xml, I changed the path of each component to the appropriate location (see below). Try making the changes I suggested and hopefully you'll get it to work. <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>FSDG-Ayers Rock</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>THIS FILE CONTROLS ALL CONTENT FOR FSDG-AGADIR: DO NOT EDIT OR REMOVE!</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Scenery</Category> <Path>Z:\P3D sceneries\FSDG-Ayers Rock\FSDG-Ayers Rock</Path> <Name>FSDG-Ayers Rock</Name> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Effects</Category> <Path>Z:\P3D sceneries\FSDG-Ayers Rock\Effects</Path> <Name>FSDG-Ayers Rock-Effects</Name> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Sound</Category> <Path>Z:\P3D sceneries\FSDG-Ayers Rock\Sound</Path> <Name>FSDG-Ayers Rock-Sound</Name> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document>
  13. As mulgrave states, the installation path is locked to C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\FSDG-xxxxx Check there on your PC. If there are no files then ask for a new download link to see if it is an installer issue. I bought YAYE, LGIR and also downloaded the Cape Verde demo yesterday and all worked (except a now resolved minor texture issue on LGIR) just fine. If you have files in the C:\ location and want to move them to another disk, follow the instructions here. You can download and use Lorby Prepar3D V4 Addon Organizer to show the installation of YAYE, as FSDG installs using the .xml method.
  14. David, that's a very disingenuous comment given the amount of times you have posted on the Black Marble forum and Chris has responded to and helped you! I decided against the extra support (beyond the 3-month initial period) as hopefully, it will all be working perfectly after I apply the newly-released ORBX patch. Yes, Chris needs help describing his products clearly and concisely and I'm not a fan of the modular support package, but he has helped several customers quickly and the Black Marble product is excellent. For simmers interested in the product, just read the forums over at BM and then decide which packages to purchase, if you like the look of the product.
  15. That is a very simplistic way of seeing where the demand is (I'm sure developers are guilty of reading similar data incorrectly also). There are so few good quality sceneries available in Africa, Asia, and S. America, simmers won't waste time flying in default / mediocre locations, but instead will fly in Europe and N. America, as that is where the decent payware scenery is located. I believe in the (misquoted) line of "if you build it, they will come" - if developers were to undertake some decent market research, then I'm sure that they would make a very healthy profit from a select few airports. Off the top of my head, I believe new or updated versions of FAOR, FACT, RJBB, (RJTT is apparently in the works by a large developer), RKSI, ZBAA, and SCEL would be worth pursuing.
