  1. Nothing wrong with them not making it a highly detailed study level sim, only problem is that they put study level sim prices on aircraft that aren't.
  2. My thoughts exactly. When I saw the sale I got excited and thought I might finally have a chance to pick up a 757, but found that it is barely on sale. The prices they are asking are at the same level as other developers whose products are way more advanced and polished than Captain Sim's, so why am I going to pay PMDG, FSLabs, etc prices for something that isn't of that caliber. I bought their 767 and it isn't a terrible addon, it just isn't worth the $100 I paid for it and certainly not the $134 they advertise it as (even though they've never actually sold it for $134), especially when you consider that is just for the base package with one variant. If it goes on sale for $50 I'll consider it, but at this point I'm reconsidering if I want to support them at all with the shady marketing tactics they use.
  3. Except they have been charging $100 for their 767 this entire time, so $95 is really only a $5 discount. I don't think they've charged the listed full price at any point. Captain Sim almost always has their products listed below the full price to make it look like everything is always on sale and a good deal. Pretty scummy tactic if you ask me.
  4. Is there a way to connect ground power on the PC12? I know there is a switch for it on the overhead panel but I haven't found anything that actually connects the GPU. Not getting my hopes up that Carenado included this but I figure I would ask.
  5. Yeah I'll make a post over there but not too sure how much weight it will have. From the reading in the thread I could tell it was some finger pointing going on. I was hoping that since it was kind of an old thread that maybe someone had worked on the issue. Oh well, I guess it'll just be the FO's PFD for now.
  6. That is unfortunate. I guess I'll just have to do that then.
  7. So I'm getting kind of irritated because I've lost three flights at T/D this weekend due to this fatal error I keep getting. When flying the 777 after a few hours and trying to use one of the displays pop ups my sim will freeze and eventually come up with a fatal error that closes the sim. This issue does not seem to come up earlier in the flights as I am able to use the 2D pop ups (by clicking on the displays) at the beginning of the flights however when I am further into the flight and getting ready to descend I can't click on the displays or I get the fatal error. Here is the following info I pulled from Event Viewer immediately following the error. Faulting application name: Prepar3D.exe, version: 3.3.5.17625, time stamp: 0x5758bb31 Faulting module name: MSVCR120.dll, version: 12.0.21005.1, time stamp: 0x524f7ce6 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x000345ac Faulting process id: 0xfc Faulting application start time: 0x01d29042c276221e Faulting application path: C:\Prepar3dv3\Prepar3D.exe Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\MSVCR120.dll Report Id: 993f4e3b-fc5b-11e6-b10e-40167e29577c Running P3D v3.3.5, ASN, PMDG T7, Ezdok v2, FSUIPC, FTX Global and NA LC, and that is about it. Other than my FTX Global and landclass I'm not running any other scenery. I've tried a clean install but still get the issue. I tried a little bit of google searching and only found one thread that seemed to somewhat cover my issue but it is a year and a half old so I'm not sure if it has been addressed since. So far I haven't found any other aircraft in my hangar that I can recreate the problem with (including the NGX). Any help or insight into this issue would be greatly appreciated. I've wasted a total of 23 hours with three flights this weekend and didn't get to complete any of them.
  8. I've been watching his videos for awhile, he makes some awesome content however he flies the TBM 850 not the 750.
  9. Wait so you think the 747 will have a ridiculous price tag but the FSL A320 which is $100 is fine? The PMDG 777 goes for $90 so I would expect the 747 to be about the same.
  10. PMDG 747 obviously but the TFDi 717 is a very close second. I have been following the project since they announced it and have been patiently waiting. I was hoping they would release it before AirTran was absorbed by Southwest so that I could do some Citrus flights but now I'm just planning on doing Delta flights.
  11. No but I don't know why people keep on insisting developers continue to develop for a sim that is very old especially when its successor has been out for almost 11 years. You can't expect a developer to keep spending resources on developing for a sim that fewer and fewer people are using. I'm sure their sales of FS9 addons have shown them that it isn't worth the time and resources for the return they are getting. They have a business to run too.
  12. I would suggest starting your own thread that way more people are able to see your question.
  13. I was actually just looking up the progress of the TFDI model and according to their website they are releasing it by the end of this year (so any day now).
  14. So far so good. I think I have enough hours with it to write a review which I will try to do after I get back from Thanksgiving vacation. I purchased the Throttle Quadrant Console with the 3 lever TPM option to start with however I do plan on purchasing other throttle quadrants in the future. The sim I am running everything with is the latest version of P3Dv3 and I have all my equipment setup via FSUIPC (of course).
