    SIM720 Thanksgiving Sale 2018

    That is quite disrespectful. A developer is kindly discounting their products and you complain about the percentage? Instead of being so entitled why don't you thank them for doing what they can, afterall it is for THANKSgiving, right?

    Taxi2Gate -20%

    I've been waiting it seems a year for Taxi2Gate to have a sale. Finally getting Munich and Paris crossed off my wish list.

    FSX'ers. Understand this please.

    I never have tweaked anything in P3D, also never have used Nvidia Inspector. I find that it gives me a really reliable simulator. Once you start messing with stuff is when you get problems. I know that may not be the case for everyone, but thats just me.

    P3Dv4 aircraft recommendations

    What about the Aerosoft CRJ? I certainly enjoy the aircraft. Visuals are great, dynamic lighting, systems are good. Great little aircraft for short hops, it may suit your needs quite well.

    KRDU latinvfr

    Yes it will work. I don't think it has been "officially" updated though. At the simmarket page it is listed as P3Dv2-4.

    TBM-900 for X-Plane released

    I guess I just took the wording incorrectly. When I read "Custom sound engine with samples.." I took it as is samples here and there were recorded of the real thing. Maybe I was looking for something more direct along the lines of "Real aircraft sounds professionally recorded" such as Cameron mentioned was the case in his post below. Cameron, I appeciate you taking the time to explain the 3D sound engine. The sounds in the Saab are spectacular. What threw me of is where it says Sample in the description.. The definition of Sample is a representative part of a single item from a larger whole. So to me the description is worded as some sounds are real, some may not be because you only sampled some sounds from the real aircraft. BUT if that is not the case that is wonderful. Sorry if I took it wrong. I'll add the TBM to my hangar as soon as I'm able.

    TBM-900 for X-Plane released

    I'm curious about the sounds. The product page lists a "Custom sound engine with samples from the real aircraft...." That is kind of a letdown. Also no mention of FMOD. I watched some videos and the ground roll sounds are pretty X-Plane 9'ish. Overall my ears weren't that impressed. There is no question that the texturing and level of detail that are going on behind the scenes of this aircraft are phenomenal but for $64.95, you gotta go the whole distance and it should have a full entire real soundpack. Sounds are important part of the immersion, especially for a payware aircraft of this quality. FlyJSim, the LES Saab, Zibo, A2A, PMDG to name a few, they all have excellent soundpacks.

    PC Pilot or Computer Pilot?

    I've been a long time subscriber to PC Pilot and enjoy it quite a lot. I get it digitally through the Pocketmags app for my Android tablet.
  9. The camera system is excellent in X-Plane. Look up the key bindings and you can pretty much just move anywhere you want. As for weather, you may want to just use default for a short time longer and wait to see what Active Sky releases, speculation is Q4 2018. If you're into older airliners, the FlyJSim 737 and 727 are top quality. Definitely get the Zibo 737 and 737-900 Ultimate. All freeware scenery from MisterX is a must.

    What's the deal with ORBX vector?

    Some issues I have come accross with it is I will have airports that need an AEC correction but don't show up in either of the lists. And doing the Makerunways fix thing does not help either.

    FlightFactor B777

    I hate to be one to steer away from the sim in which you are inquiring but if you want something as close to what you can expect in the real world aircraft, it would be the PMDG 777 for P3D. And yes I do own BOTH the FF 777 and the PMDG 777. The Flight Factor one was a great revolutionizing aircraft for X-Plane but it is rather dated now.

    ASCA textures?

    Ha! Too funny. I was typing my reply as above, and when I was writing I started to mention "other" options but stopped myself and hit the delete key a few times and said to myself, nah it is not needed and will only start something, I'll just answer the question 😄

    ASCA textures?

    I like it a lot. It's simple and integrates into Active Sky so you don't ever know it's running or even have to open it up. Start your Active Sky and Cloud Art will do it's thing for you. Clouds look really good obviously and look good flying through them.

    QW787 Glareshield lights?

    The information regarding the switch can be found on page 74 of the Quality Wings 787 Manual. The GLARESHIELD PNL / FLOOD switch has an outer and inner knob. The outer knob controls the backlighting for the writing on the panel by just left or right clicking. The inner knob controls the flood lighting which can be left or right click or scrollwheel.
  15. New terrain! Time to wipe out those old FS9/FSX textures and start over.
