  1. The two big "stores" for X-Plane are to me the most frustrating part of the whole X-Plane sim world ha... It's been enough in the past to simply drive me back to FSX/P3D with nothing to do with the actual XP sim. But, to answer your question, I'd vote for the FF 757 v2 Extended or IXEG 737 for airliner stuff.... both are simply fantastic (honestly, I enjoy the IXEG 737 better than my PMDG 737), with each FF and IXEG offering their own great features so I'd hate to have to pick just one. Both also work great for me in XP11, no issues at all. One you didn't mention, but is also a must have in my opinion, is the LES Saab 340 . It might be one of my all time favorite sim aircraft ever. It's currently been updated for XP11 support, but we are waiting for the store to release the package. It's a must buy when released. So many fond hours flying it in XP10. GA wise, look into the REP stuff, it's a great addition that basically makes a few Caranado planes A2A level and is well supported by the developer. Also, once updated to XP11, which should be soon as well, check out the SMS DHC-2 Beaver. It's a fabulous plane in it's own right, but also has some community mods that make it truly exceptional. Enjoy and have fun!
  2. Wow, sorry, seems my connection had issues, sorry for multiple posts!

    FSW Lear 35

    I agree, would buy otherwise, but not when it hurts performance on everything else I fly.

    ObjectFlow2 Is Almost Here

    With a newborn haven't had the time I'd like to test ha. Tapini (TAP) and its surrounding airports in the package, which is one of my favorites, unfortunately has floating/clipped objects all over the place. When I get a minute I'll report back the others I've noticed problems at.

    ObjectFlow2 Is Almost Here

    Yeah, this is disappointing. I was planning to use the two together, but Global NextGen really messes up the Orbx airports. Not sure best way to proceed.
  6. Biggest issue is as others have said... P3D/FSX airports suck with a good mesh program. It doesn't bother me too much and is generally fine with most Vector/LC areas, but the actual payware ORBX airports are giving me hell with Pilots Ultimate installed. Some aren't usable, and by the time I disable all the needed mesh files, what's the point to even have them? I'm frustrated to say the least. So, based on your particular question when using ORBX airports, I'd stick with Global 2010 as it's what they officially support. The few ORBX airports I've tried with Ultimate installed have been terrible elevation wise. I still don't have a solution. I love great mesh, and before ORBX released their P3Dv4 airports, I was loving it.... but, now with their airports installed, few actually look or function properly with Ultimate installed.

    Great news, been waiting for this like you all as well! Do have to say, I give Orbx credit for their servers now. I know it's a busy time as we are all downloading, but they are the first server to max out my new AT&T 1000mb line... just downloaded all my airports at about 136MB/s, which is just over 1000mb. Props to Orbx! Now to finally get to play with Pago Pago and Tapini again!!!

    Got my eye on Just Flight Piper Warrior

    Awesome job of matching the viewpoint!
  9. Installed and working great so far! Was really missing Vector as I fly a lot on the East Coast (NC/TN/GA/SC/VA) where there aren't any regions. Running P3Dv4, FTX Global, FTX Vector, FTX LC, and Pilot's 2018 Ultimate Mesh.... very pleased with the results! But, I've always been a big fan of the improvements Vector makes. Now the only downside is my P3D install is almost filling a 1TB SSD once you add in all the regions and 3rd party planes I also own ha.... bring on South America LC, who needs free SSD space anyway?!?!

    BAC 1-11 installer updated for P3D V4

    And it even comes with a VCR! Thanks for the report on the JF 1-11, I enjoy their stuff but haven't picked this one up yet. I particularly enjoy their F-27, REALLY hoping to see a v4 update for it but not sure it's going to happen. Now to go play on the JF website.

    More Carenado Planes Ready for V4

    I also have their PA34 Seneca V and it works great in v4, my old serial works fine. So, hopefully a quick fix for the 406 for us both!

    More Carenado Planes Ready for V4

    The Carenado store page says it's compatible: Technical Requirements Windows XP with SP3 installed, Vista or 7 (32 or 64 bits). Microsoft Flight Simulator FSX with SP1 and SP2 (or Acceleration Pack) installed or Lockheed Martin - Prepar3D Flight Simulator v3 or v4 or FSX Steam Edition.

    More Carenado Planes Ready for V4

    I'm actually having a problem installing the F406 as well into v4 with the new installer. Having serial issues too, it tells me mine is simply invalid. I've only installed this plane once before, so not exceeded any install limits. I just says mine is invalid. Oddly, I seem to have two different serials for this plane now. The one on my Carenado store page, and then when I click "send email link" to download, it gives me a different serial. Neither work. I've sent support request in, will report back when sorted what the fix was. Seems not totally smooth sailing just yet with the updated Carenado installers.

    A2A Connie released for V4

    WOOHOOO!!! Been waiting for this for weeks! Thanks for the heads up! It's a fantastic aircraft, definitely one of my favorites. Plus, the performance and smoothness of how it runs is very impressive compared to other high end add on planes. Downloading now.
