  1. old fart here checking in.... see below this is correct imho although i prefer rex 4 and softclouds
  2. The failure system in FSX is lacking, its binary... either there is a failure or there is not a failure. What i would like is a system where I could say there is 95% reliability [number is pulled out of thin air] to each overall flight and on that 5% there is a system that fails randomly. As far as I know FSCaptain has some sort of system like this but it seems to be tuned to be easy to get out of... nothing critical will fail. I saw a video of a tube liner project in development where the engine flamed and he went through the emergency procedures. but it seemed that the plane had a control panel to trigger the emergancy. As far as I can tell FSCaptain is the only thing that does something along these lines, but is there anything else out there... Bonus if it works for FSX-SE (which excludes FS Passengers) Double bonus if its in active development (which excludes FS Passengers) triple bonus if it also works with p3d as well (not critical)
  3. Hey guys, will FS Captain run under Steam Edition?
  4. On suggestion I picked up the RealAir Lancair and it has quickly become my go to aircraft. I love it so much.
  5. Skimmed through the thread but did not find this asked already. But is this compatible with FSXSE?
  6. There should be no issues with using Scenery on SE.....
  7. Same problem here... Emailed twice with no answers/changes
  8. Anyone have any experience / recommendations / reviews regarding the 3 planes that orbx put out. They seem to be Kit style GA and I really have no experience in what kit planes can and cant do and my unknowledgeable bias thinks there limited... But let me know they look sexy... are they good?
  9. Well both.. Since im just coming back into things, i am collecting as much info as I can as well. That GTN750 looks awesome b.t.w. Tell me about (well point me to) the aftermarket FMC... whats good in that area? I love this community!
  10. These are the two I am looking at. I tried out Texas for NIGHT 3D but the frame rate got completely trashed and I don't know of any easy way to tone down the settings. It looks amazing. Does not perform amazing. I am told Flight1's Night Enviroment is better and easier to configure for less FPS hit but it is lacking in US coverage at the moment. They are working feverishly on it though. Aren't those two links both the Aerosoft Product? Or am I missing something...
  11. In the responses I saw a few for the Citation by EagleSoft... What about the Carenado Citation II S550 I've heard the initial release had issues but there was a quick fix put out, but really haven't heard much about post patch.
  12. Hi folks What are some of the suggested private jets to get, preferably ones with good FMC style navigation. Or just good nav systems. Thanks
  13. @ Kuragiman you mention the lighting to add in over the mega scenery, can you give me the full names of them, a quick google search did not give me much love,
  14. Gotcha... I assume regions act similar to open land class with region specific stuff.... So the Global Mesh is still a good non redundant purchase.. excellent.
  15. These are the basics. However, default FSX ATC/AI does have some shortcomings, and it is likely that at a later stage you will want to look at addon packages that improve the experience. There are packages which provide more realistic airline traffic, others which allow you to interact with FSX ATC by voice, and still others that replace the default ATC system with something nearer real life. Could you expand on this with suggestions or pointing me to add on that do the replacement of the ATC system, and the best package for AI realism.
  16. what about world of AI... Do these work with ATC or do I need ATC add ons... Is it better to wait for UT2 or are the others ones as good...
  17. I hope my questions are not considered spam... Just have a lot of them right now.... So I want to get some AI into the sim, but I want it to be responsive to ATC... I guess the question is What AI package to get and does stock ATC handle this or do I need some form of an ATC add on. Very new to AI and ATC so feel free to answer like I am 5.... I'm nowhere near ready for vatsim or that other service with real controllers in the CA area.
  18. Hi folks, I am a little confused here is I need to get FTX Global Mesh. I have Global and Vector and from what I understand Vector has some mesh (to be honest I'm kinda confused as to the difference between what global does (replace autogen graphics), what Vector does (seems like landclass), Regions (again seems like landclass + better data for region) . The things in parentheses are my guess. But the main issue is should I pull the trigger and add the FTX global mesh product to round it all out. Thanks.
  19. Thanks everyone for the tips... Looks like the Airbus is the way to go at first and then soon go to NGX.... Should be a fun learning ride...
  20. Hi folks, Working under FSX-SE here, but I don't think in this case it should matter much. I am confused by the traffic offerings. I would like to get something (or somethings) that can 1) Give me realistic traffic and such 2) Have the AI fly realistically 3) Have ATC Act better/correctly with the traffic that is added. Now I've seen this and it looks great as an add on to what I am looking for... http://forum.avsim.net/topic/451383-traffic-optimizer-for-fsxp3d/ But I still have no clue what package I need for Traffic and if I need something else for the AI to follow SID/STAR and the ATC . Preferably I would want something that would work both under P3D v2 and FSX... What is the best way to go....
  21. Dead End... Well if you mean new features and functionality yes its a dead end. But DT has already shown they are willing and able to make changes and bug fixes and even some performance tweaks. One massive thing to consider is the fact that if you wanted to get into MSFSX it was about 100$ or more to purchase on eBay or Amazon, now its the price of a bag of crisps... well not all the time, but I picked it up for 5$ if you wait till a steam sale you will most likely be able to pick it up just as cheep. More Community, is never a bad thing. For developers its a boom, I would likely say there has been an uptick in purchases since the launch. Stop with the doom and gloom, if nothing else exposing it to the massive power or steam distribution is a great thing for us. It brought me back to FS and I purchased fspisupc, orbx g and v, all 3 rex's and a few planes from A2A and Coranado and i will most likely buy gtx global mesh tonight..... Thats a nice chunk of change into the developers hands that they would not have had if DT had not done the re-release, which means more development on the 3rd party will more likely get, increasing everyone's enjoyment...... I don't understand the hate....DT did a good thing....
  22. Hey thanks for that Have you tried project airbus over the Aerosoft product? does it have frame rate issues?
  23. Picked back up FSX on Steam after a long time away from FS9 I am looking to get into airliners something I never played with before mostly sticking with GA So there are a bunch of options available, I've heard I should start with an Airbus as its more forgiving to learn in. I see there is something called project airbus is this better than any of the others out there or should i go with one, not to concerned about the price vs free here just looking for the best choice. PMDG looks intimidating are there better solutions that can act as a trainer to PMDG on the dash 8 and 7x7 side of things?
