  1. Latrobe Valley, Victoria, Australia. YLTV
  2. Retired Chiropractor and Acupuncturist, just over 2 years now. I've been flight simming since my Commodore Amiga days. Now I have a magnificent full size Learjet 45 cockpit to keep me occupied. I built a purpose built 'hangar' to house it, out in a paddock. When the wife unfurls her infinite list of jobs, she know where to find me............................unfortunately.
  3. I also want to second the PNG strips from ORBX. Yes it is expensive but you can wait for ORBX's deals that come around. It's a once off cost and many hours of enjoyment.and Global means global not just PNG. Also I just purchased Aerosoft Lukla that got released for P3dv4 last week. Wow. If you want to fly out of Lukla and land at added local strips and fly around Everest then fun is coming your way. It is well worth the cost. Australia V2 has 100's of added and upgraded airports. You want desert strips or 'bush' strips then you probably have a lifetime supply right there. Southern Alaska by ORBX also has many small strips. Aerosoft Antarctica has many strips as well. We really are spoilt for choice if you get away from your local comfort zone and explore the world. Yes it costs money but seriously how much pleasure do you get out of this wonderful hobby ? Just think how much a boat and it's on-going cost amount to ! Mark
  4. I downloaded Radar Contact but never installed it so now is my big chance. Thanks for that pointer. Researching elsewhere it is highly suggested that the fix is that we need to install P3D v4.5 Content. I don't know if there are any consequences for doing this as I have only been upgrading the Client for each point. I have so much 'stuff' installed that I might create a total mess. Maybe you and I will be waiting for V5 to get our ATC back or ...............................MS Flight Simulator ! Cheers Mark
  5. Hi JayDub, I've got to say that I too have exactly the same symptoms as you. I noticed it a few weeks ago but have not been able to work out the offending download...I assume. I have reinstalled the P3D v4.5 client to no avail. I have just gotten on without using ATC which is not a satisfactory solution. I'll be waiting for any other suggestions as well. Mark
  6. Thanks Barry. I check out Little NavMap and see what help it'll be. We are finalizing our flight Plan (with flexibility). So looks like probably; Cairns Darwin Bali Singapore Ho Chi Minh City Hanoi Hong Kong Taipei Shanghai Seoul Northern Japan ...... not sure after that........Juneau. You are a good incentive for me to get on with the pictures as I am going along. I'm using P3D v4.1 so is looking pretty awesome. I have just spent the last day adding a lot of freeware to my mates FSX-SE. It still not a patch on P3D. He is retired so he doesn't want to spend any money yet so he doesn't have any ground texture software just Soft Clouds from Rex. Thanks for your on going communication, we'll keep in touch. Regards Mark
  7. Barry That is one thing about our hobby is that we have a choice of the whole world to fly. My co builder and I have just started out first tour together from YWSL (West Sale) in Victoria, Australia and finishing in Juneau, Alaska flying via Asia. We have already completed 3 legs. West Sale to Sydney. Sydney to Brisbane and thirdly Brisbane to Cairns via Hamilton Island. We are getting quite excited as you would've been flying to new destinations, making sure your fuel is sufficient for each leg, NAV aids, COM freq. Also after working out a Flight Plan then scouring the file libraries for any scenery or airports along the route. Basically Australia, PNG, Indonesia, Philippines, Japan, Russia and finally Alaska. How hard could that be ? Any pointers if I have missed something then drop me a reply. btw I was in Florida for real 2 years ago Jacksonville, Orlando, Cape Canaveral. I'm afraid that travelling around the world did not make Florida one of the highlights for flying. The flatness was a bit hard as a selling point, especially as I had just flown from Tucson which was quite interesting. America has such a wonderfully diverse range of scenery. In the sim I like to do Bozeman-Jackson Hole-West yellowstone-Lake Tahoe. Too much choice. When I introduce new people to my sim I like to start off with Skagway to Haines. Short but WOW factor as long as you have all the required ORBX installed. Mark
  8. Thanks for that. I'll keep checking back occasionally to see how you're going. Nothing worse than having a slow internet holding us all back. I will definitely be in my grave once everything is instant. At the moment I have the most fun flying around Papua New guinea using ORBX Jackson Airport, EMO mission and ORBX Tapini. Well worth the fun of bush flying esp in a Learjet ! Another fun flight is Iceland and trying to land at Isafjordur airport BIIS. Where are you based ? I'm in Victoria, Australia. Regards Mark
  9. I enjoyed following your tour. I for one would really appreciate it if you could finish off the album. If I don't repeat your whole trip, then at least it gives some of us great short leg trips. I fly a Learjet 45 in a home made cockpit so I should be able to complete the legs quicker. Regards Mark
