  1. I hope the move goes well Shuai, don't worry about working on the PC-12, we're happy to be patient and look forward to any future improvements you make (I like Artur's idea for the GPU). You really have transformed this PC-12 from a mediocre 'flying texture' to something with ever-increasing realism and enjoyment. Thanks!
  2. Don't do that at the account of louisdecoolste...... I've yet to ever see him post anything positive about anything! Just read the dialogue above between him and Flyfox. Clearly, no-one's viewpoint is valid if it disagrees with Louis'. It's a great addon. Consider the price. And it does a heck of a lot more "right" than any of the recent Carenado releases do; at significantly higher prices! ==================== Points of arrogance, conjecture, and projecting his views to everyone else, highlighted in red below. So just to be clear; 1). Flyfox's views are irrelevent and invalid according to Louis - purely because he is 'late to the party'. So only those who buy at release are entitled and capable of having a view then.... <_< 2). This addon is far from 'abandonware'. Review the thread, and see how many other people are referring to it as abandonware, other than louis. 3). Louis suggests that 'most would agree' that this aircraft is worth 50% what it is offered for. See any evidence of others having this view in the thread? ........ the aircart costs $34.95 (£23), so Louis is suggesting it should sell for $17.50 (£11.50). A pretty laughable suggestion really. Louis clearly expects Level D Sim accuracy in this aircraft, for $17.50. At the end of the day, the visuals are great, the sounds are great, the FDE ain't bad, and the systems - well they're not fabulous by any stretch - but they're adequate for the pricepoint and target audience of Alabeo aircraft.
  3. Simmarket have had v1.6 available on users account for 2 or 3 weeks now. Might need to drop FSPilotShop an email urging / reminding them to update to the latest version.
  4. The price increases have been quite recent, so I think people are entitled to have 'expected' more, for that extra $$, than they've actually gotten. But people time and again fail to vote with their wallets. (I've been guilty of that too in the past). If you spend what you consider to be a premium price and find the product disappointing, then there is no logical reason to repeat that with the next (similarly priced, similar type, aircraft). I learned my lesson with the Citation (and it's dreadful "FMC" expansion pack), so enough was enough and I never took the bait for the Hawker. As soon as I saw early reports of the usual bugs; unreliable autopilots, poor APPR mode performance, features that appear to have been misunderstood by Carenado, etc, I knew I'd made the right decision; for me, at least. I will buy their Navajo, because I know exactly what to expect from a twin-engined piston GA aircraft from Carenado (still some bugs but a broadly acceptable experience) but I will never buy another 'complex' aircraft or jet from them again. Even with their GA aircraft, where they tried to take on systems complexity, things went wrong (I'm thinking autothrottles being employed on the SR-22 here, to manage 'speed'). Steam gauge, GA from Carenado, and I'm in, That's about it. @Bert raises a very good point - people talk about "you shouldn't expect systems accuracy from Carenado", but systems accuracy (or lack of) is not the problem - bugs with what is provided, is the problem. ======================== A typical day in the Carenado HQ: "Okay, I've just finished the last gauge on our latest, product, it's finished!" "Cool, shall we do the testing" "Yes, let's test the sales server....." :smile:

    Your age?

    Very true (I'm wincing just thinking about those 'memories') No, I jest, my wife is a marvel .... (a Marvel character - http://marvel.com/characters/57/storm ) :smile:

    Your age?

    Congratulations! I'm coming up to 9 years of marriage, and thinking (in the UK at least), I'd have gotten less for murder! :smile:
  7. I've had that a couple of times too - not sure what causes it!
  8. Maybe an Orbx ObjectFlow error? Have you got the prompt recently when loading, that asks if you want to update your ObjectFlow libraries?
  9. I have a very different experience to yours, on all counts. No issues with LOC capture (when intercepting from a realistic angle), no GS 'hunting', and Shuai's modified air file and aircraft.cfg results in a far more convincing flight dynamics experience. PS.... the stock FSX/P3D Yaw Damper functionality is almost non-existant. In almost all autopilots, you can tell little difference between the YD being off or on. Clearly the Carenado PC-12 is not using any sort of 'custom' YD so we're stuck with the default function. And I'd guess that's out of scope for Shuai to be able to modify or correct.
  10. Yes, it's the course knob Andrew. By turning that you can choose any inbound or outbound VOR radial. :smile:
  11. Pleasure guys :smile: .... glad you got it fixed, Don.
  12. 1). Ensure throttle lever is at idle, for start 2). Ensure condition (fuel) level is at idle, for start 3). Press the Starter button. 4). When the NG% level reaches 13 or more, move the condition lever to 'ground idle' (not all the way forward) 5). Tap the 'F1' key (resets FSX/P3D power level to 0. 6). Turn on GENs etc. Don't move the condition lever to flight idle (fully forward) until you're entering the runway for departure. Hope that helps.
  13. Just copy the PANEL and SOUND folder, and the air file and aircraft.cfg and overwrite when prompted.
  14. Perhaps I misread your post then because I thought you'd said that you were changing the '1' flags to '0' to get pitch hold working.
