  1. I'd buy it. The LevelD one was one of my all time favourites. JustFlight offers the 200/300 and their lite series of aircraft are ok. I think they could handle the quality of a LevelD one. It'd be a step up but a success. Majestic is another who would be good. The Q400 is amazing. PMDG would do a good job but it would be out of my price range with their level of workmanship. Aerosoft is an interesting suggestion though. Their 320 series is good and the 330 is good too. Nice balance of quality and affordability.
  2. Thanks for all who commented. I'm glad I asked and I think I will wait for the Xtreme 25 or the Milviz 34R, whichever comes first, but the suggestion of the KA350i is really tempting. Although I'm looking for a jet, a fast turboprop is not a bad idea either as I will not be doing trips over 1500nm anyhow. Not enough free time in the day for more than that. 🙂 I'm more concerned about realistic flight models and 3d cockpit than the skin of the aircraft. It seems the consensus on the 350i is good. I'll stay away from the Phenom's. I've read elsewhere the same comments that are here so it seems like it's not the one for me. Thanks for steering me away. I was PM'd why I didn't like the Carenado CJ2. It's simply because the climb is bad. It's supposed to handle up to 3400 ft/min but above FL200 with the suggested N1 climb as 94.6% I'm only getting 500 - 1000 ft/min and I have to push the throttle forward to 100% to get the 1000. Plus the throttle is really sensitive. Throttle back 2-4% and there's a major jerk back that would give a real pilot a whiplash or smack your head on the dashboard. Happy New Year to all!
  3. I'm in the market for a good, but not necessarily high level, bizjet for P3D. I currently have the Carenado CJ2 which has a below average flight model, imo. I'm thinking of the Falcon from Flysimware but open to suggestions. Eye candy is not the biggy for me, it's performance and the flight model. Thanks. I7-6700k @ 4ghz 6gb nVidia 1660 video 16 gb ram.
  4. Pretty extreme imo. A good business person would take your criticism, agree to disagree, and then advise that it is not something being considered and move on. Certainly not ban you and revoke licenses. I'd like to hear his side of the story, too. If you're listening Helge, chime in and tell us your side.
  5. I have created the Maritimes and Southern Ontario using FSEarthTiles for myself. The detail available is fairly good. The problem is I don't know if I'm allowed to upload it and if I can it's over 150gb.
  6. It's an escape from the stress of daily life to immerse myself into the virtual flying world.
  7. Same for me. Once resized it stays that way. Odd though, I've never had one go full screen immediately, only when I accidentally make it bigger.
  8. You can move them but you will have to change the location in your FS scenery list.
  9. Active Sky for v4 has a beta update you can download. So far no problems for me.
  10. I guess the lack of response probably answers your question but why not make it yourself using FSEarthTiles? I've been doing the Philippines and it's quite easy if you are not concerned about water masks.
  11. Dougal thanks for starting this discussion. I have enabled and gone through the error log and fixed allot of "bugs" in my P3Dv4. UT Traffic had a few duplicate keys for one. I learned allot in the last hour or so including RAASPRO is 32 bit version in my install of PMDG's 737ngx. I disabled it as I'm not paying for the 64 bit version that I won't use anyhow.
  12. GPU. its the bottleneck with your current setup.
  13. Try FSEarth Tiles. I've been using it to create photo scenery for Newfoundland and it's working really nice. Looking forward to seeing London, btw. I live in Toronto.
  14. FSX's airport database is 10+ years old. RPVI has moved from it's original location near the coast to inland in order to expand the city's metropolitan district (and for noise reasons I'm sure, too).
  15. Here's what worked for me by adding scenery to P3Dv4 using the interface (not the developers installer): Toposim Europe, Asia SceneryTech Landclass Asia Pacsim RPLL. Italy Photoreal (Italy and France tested) Other: JF Air Hauler 2 (started a new company, selected P3D and pointed to v4 folder's exe) worked. Saitek Yoke and Throttle quadrant worked fine. Here's what didn't work using the developer's installer: Carenado B1900D and Navajo. Installed ok but the instrument panel textures did not display and the mixture control kept going to mixture off whether using Saitek quadrant or keyboard input.
