About Me

  • About Me
    40 years old, long time simmer. Have tried 'em all but eventually settled on X-Plane 10 as my single sim of choice because it provides everything I need from a sim. Not a "fan-boy" as they say, have spent many many thousands on the others before eventually dropping them.
  1. I feel I have been poorly treated by a particular member of the Avsim staff. Anyone who reads any of my postings can decide for themselves if I am the unreasonable kind. In this case I feel the staff member was unreasonable but there is nothing I can do about that other than to think it is a shame as I quite like Avsim and am a regular contributor. So it is with regret that I ask that my account be deactivated. I know I will not be missed, I'll try not to let the door hit me on the way out.

    WOW!! The sounds are great, the whole package looks fantastic. I don't care what it costs I'll buy it. I just hope I get it before it breaks servers on release day, I'd say this will be the best selling XP aircraft ever.
  4. I was shocked to see that you are right. I didn't think photoscenery would take so much but it fills 4Gigs for me and asks for more. That's rather a pain.
  5. Thanks. The reason I ask is I see you have really good framerates in the video and I wondered why. I use ZL18 scenery for Ireland and I find it really cuts down the frames, down to 17-19 over Dublin, 30's at best. I also suffer with it from micro-stutters that destroy the immersion. Without the scenery everything is hunky dory, no stutters, fps 30-60 depending on where you're looking in the A320neo. I wonder do you see anything similar on mainland UK with your setup and what zoom level are you using?
  6. @FSProUK, could you tell us your pc specs?
  7. I doubt that you'll notice your money in the switch but would be interested to hear how you fare if you go ahead with it.
  8. I didn't realise that could be done, please let us know how you get on.
  9. It certainly would be a worthwhile purchase if it is.
  10. Does tweaking art controls rely on Fly with Lua or can it be done some other way? I want to get rid of beaches permanently.
  11. I hadn't realised the lego brick system could produce such results, wow!
  12. The problem is once you do, you find you can't go back.
  13. Seriously impressive! All the more so when the author gives it away. I really love the fact that this sort of community spirit is still evident around the X-Plane platform. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for quality payware addons but when they dominate to the point where the freeware community is drowned out, some essential facet to the hobby is lost. X-Plane is inclusive in that way, you can contribute something you made yourself, I like that! Seeing something in the sim that you made yourself, whatever it be, gives great satisfaction. Well done Sir!
