    RW plane crash survivor. My last 'store brand' bought PC was the IBM PS/2. Its micro-channel architecture and $5000 discounted price *for employees* including everything (IBM brand monitors, keyboards, mice, external floppies, printers, modems, $260 for math co-processor, etc.) taught me a lesson. Note to self: never, never ever buy anything that is bleeding edge, proprietary, and single sourced (looking at you Apple).

  1. @Glenn Fitzpatrick I suspect for most also, this is exactly the same situation we find ourselves with VR headgear now.
  2. This line "never ticked enough boxes" makes me wonder what those boxes are.
  3. By the same measure, AVSIM is very very biased. Just check out and compare the number of posts or message threads between forums eg. MSFS vs P3D vs X-plane.
  4. In the testing backlog section Microsoft uses 3P. What is '3P'? Is it for 3rd Party?
  5. Sale extended to September 24. Borrowing a quote from W. Buffett: "Price is what you pay, value is what you get".
  6. To anyone who might be curious about how P3D compares to DCS, perhaps now might be a good time to do so (Big DCS sale - up to 60% off until Sept 17. - The Bargain Hunter's Shack - The AVSIM Community). I don't know if DCS does work for the US military (hard to imagine Russian programmers coding US classified material) but their simulation of how missiles and radar function is probably "as real as it gets". This is interesting. This likely explains the lack of hobbyist add-ons. Thank you.
  7. Check out the biggest DCS savings in years with up to 60% savings off most products! The sale will continue on our eShop until Sunday, the 17th of September 2023 at 16:00 GMT and on Steam until the 15th at 18:00 GMT.

  8. In P3D's "simobject" folder, you'll notice 100's of objects related to the military eg. "Surface-to-air missile vehicle", "cruise_missile", "Ak-47", etc. etc. It seems to me that P3D has what it takes to compete with DCS, arguably the developer which offer the most realistic military aircraft sim eg.(203) DCS A-10C II TANK KILLER - YouTube (this plane has a 700+ page manual the last time I checked). As far as I know DCS is a Russian company, but had the smarts to move their address to Switzerland before Putin went ballistic on Ukraine. So why isn't P3D competing with DCS?
  9. ...do you mean, checkmate as in ... white to move and checkmate black in two moves?? (for clarity the comment is for someone else, and the white pieces are moving upwards)
  10. Newbie friendly, not-a-pilot, not-a-dev wish list: 1. Ability to name and save CUSTOM waypoints and POI 2. Printer-friendly printing of Navlog, VFR map, checklist 3. Windshield wipers and graphic effects ON the plane 4. REALLY simple built-in instant replay: a. Press short-cut key or go to menu b. Press OK c. Done (last 60 seconds replayed) 5. PCL (Pilot Controlled Lighting) (A bug fix is not a new feature!)
  11. Thanks for the heads up.
  12. Thanks. Xtreme Prototypes' next version of their Learjet 25D for P3D is planned for a version later than P3D 4.5. If I can't get similar results to P3D that Rogen has for P3D4.5 I'd hesitate upgrading to P3D 5.x or 6.x just to get a newer version of the Learjet 25D. I'll likely just wait for the Learjet 25D for MSFS instead.
  13. Your comment reminds me of my twin kids. They're both good musicians (one plays the violin and the other the cello and have played at Carnegie Hall). When they play at home or at some other stage venue they oftentimes don't sound as good compared to when I play the exact same piece in my Klipsch audio system ie. because the acoustics in my real-life house or stage venue is not as good compared to the acoustics in a professional recording studio. Since their real-life playing doesn't sound as good as the CD version, some would conclude that the CD version is more 'realistic'. lol. In other words, actual reality is not the same as someone's perception of 'reality'. It's all subjective, the point being a top-of-the-line graphic card or system set-up doesn't necessarily mean it's 'as real as it gets'.
  14. Is there an alternative to Tomato Shade?
