  1. It´s amazing how much the "FSX male species" is dominated by the female housewife/servant, what the .... happened? If I want a new stupid video card I BUY IT! Is this really serious talk by men???? Come on, be a man, goddamnit!!!

    PMDG for real airline pilots

    Sorry bout that Stevefromio, you sounded like ..... - something, LOL! Yep, the fear of death, big, big taboo, uhuhuuuuu... :( I forgot, it´s a simulator, we can do what we want, also use it as a tool to overcome fear of flying, and maybe even fear of death?

    PMDG for real airline pilots

    Why don´t you send an email to Capt. Randazzo himself? http://www.precisionmanuals.com/ "Fear of death from flying"? Are you sure this is the right hobby for you? PS: I must admit that I never, ever fly THY again, they ARE the worst, and the RW pilots here on Avsim - if they knew about the stuff going on there - would agree with me.
  4. Loading is instant, and that´s a positive, not all negative about it... @era66: It´s a standalone product, textures only, there will be a weather engine later AFAIK. Then again, like you mention: "It seems that REX Game Studios is unbundling the older REX Essential Overdrive into separate packages of REX4 Texture HD and the upcoming REX Weather HD" That´s exactly my thought too! New and clever business model maybe..?
  5. I just don´t like the color, and it seems there´s no way to change it. Extreme tropical blue, I would call it, reminds me of a drink with a mix of Blue Bols! http://www.bolscocktails.com/bols-liqueur-range-detail.asp?ingredient_id=1 Why not rename the textures to "Tropical Blue Bols", LOL.. :Party:
  6. Nice looking, Mephic, but what about the water, you like the water?

    The truth about FTX Global vs GEX World

    Stivy, why not have two FSX installs, one with GEX/UTX and the other with ORBX/FTX Global?
  8. Agree with JasonW, don´t like this totally unrealistic blue, really hurts the eyes. Guess it´s always "2 steps forwards and 1 back" with new things from REX?
  9. Water is too blue IMO, and as always when they release new stuff: 2 steps forward and 1 back! They should make it possible to blend colors. Back to FEX, again, that water and color is OK, and not 10 m. high waves you can see from FL330.

    Maybe, but the FEX clouds and much more looks better IMO!

    FTX Vector worth the price

    Same with the Chao Phraya river in Bangkok, from Nonthaburi and up north, nothing. This product was released to fast, endless problems with it, and I don´t like the roads, awful zig-zag over the whole scenery. They need to make a config tool like with UTX, so people can choose what to show, but that´s probably very, very difficult to get, since JV has decided to know what´s best for us all, Amen...

    4.2 or 4.6 ghz OC ?

    You don´t need watercooling, get this one: http://www.thermalright.com/html/products/cpu_cooler/archon_sb-e_x2.html Might even be better than all these stupid "watercoolers" out there..

I recall correctly several years ago when my first build using a Core 2 duo X6800, an Asus Striker Extreme with an Nvidia Chipset back then, and a 8800GTX, singles HDD I believe that system scored about 7,000 to 8,000 on that benchmark." I don´t use or care about benchmarks with regards to FSX, it´s useless, only OCD people find some fun in that. How is the actual performance in FSX when you have loaded a flight and hit that start button, that´s the key, the secret, but people don´t want that apparently...
  14. @flyer10: Is the Seagate Momentus X Hybrid an old HDD? I got off the "crazy wild update wagon" years ago, I use the sliders in FSX adjusting to my taste of smooth, stutterfree flying. Autogen is just a pain in the eyes, down to normal with that, plus several other tricks like reducing trees and ugly houses etc. I have awesome respect for NickN, but IMO he´s just turned sour, bitter and angry, and still want to keep an audience by making FSX install and tuning a kind of rocket science. It´s not, just adjust the settings to the capacity of your hardware, it´s very easy, they (Aces) made them sliders for a reason, right?
