  1. Hello all, I am hoping to get some decent photoscenery for the UK and came across this: http://en.shop.aerosoft.com/eshop.php?action=article_detail&s_supplier_aid=11967&s_design=default&shopfilter_category=flight%20simulation&s_language=english I have used the simheaven stuff but unfortunately the tiles don't match up very well. Is this any better? Is it OrbX quality? I ask this, because it's quite old now and I've not seen it talked about much. Hope you can advise!
  2. Hello guys, I've just finished the Angle of Attack pro course and feel like I'm ready to move onto vatsim now. The problem is I want to fly IFR departures but the default gps isn't departure compatible. Is there a way to do this with a simple aircraft like the sky labs Cessna or a REP bonanza, or should I just use the IXEG 73 or ff76 as they handle sids? Can I just tell ATC that I don't have departure gps?
  3. Hey, My post is pretty out of date now! Check out the x-life plugin for good traffic

    Rotate MD-80

    Excellent thanks for the links. I'm addicted to high fidelity aircraft so it'll be a day one buy for me

    Rotate MD-80

    I just had a look at your video - that looks great. Do you have any more information on this release? I'm not familiar with A.T.S - are you pitched at the PMDG / FF /IXEG level?
  6. Hey all, My VA has an Md-80 in the fleet and I'm considering picking this up for XP10. Is it anywhere close to Ixeg or FF 767 level of detail? Thanks
  7. I used to use FSX but have to admit to not having used P3D. I've had about 10 hours of lessons in the real world, so admittedly not many, but X-Plane is miles ahead in the feel of the aircraft over FSX (again, not P3D but aren't the flight dynamics identical?). Not only that, X-Plane often runs at 60fps. You will never see that anywhere but FL30+ in P3D from what I understand. The smoothness makes a big difference for the sensation of flight. X-Planes night lighting is beautiful, and it has free incredibly detailed meshes. I've covered Europe in photoscenery absolutely free, and have very detailed airports, most of which were free. Just have a look at MisterX donationware airports. They're amazing. FSX/P3D does of course have more payware aircraft, but X-Plane currently has.. IXEG 737 EADT 737NG (Free!!) FF 767 FF 757 AirfoilLabs c172 Carenado F33A Bonanza with REP Carenado F35 Bonanza with REP Carenado CT210M with REP PMDG DC-6 MD-10 by Rotate VFlyteAir PA28 FlyJSim73 FlyJSim72 All of these are off the top of my head and this doesn't include any of the incredibly high fidelity choppers and they are all study level (perhaps except the MD-10 - I haven't used it). There are, of course, hundreds more aircraft available including a whole fleet of Carenado GA stuff. For me it's a no brainer. X-Plane is amazing, it feels very close to the real world. The whole bad traffic and AI stuff has always been a nonevent for me as I use Vatsim. Visit reddit flightsim, you'll notice most of the screenshots are from X-Plane. With the right addons (mainly free), it looks incredible. Get X-Plane
  8. Ah I hadn't seen that. Damn.
  9. Still not on Steam. Hope I get to try this out this weekend!
  10. I'm not sure about this - last time the RC version was available on steam.
  11. Hi guys, I was running through some GPS tutorials which follows the realityXP GPS from FSX and it seems to have quite a bit of functionality available that isn't in the default X-Plane one. Is there someone I can purchase a superior GPS? Thanks
  12. Thanks for this - I guess I am being blind but can't see the course for the classic here?
  13. Hey all, I'm an X-Plane 10 user and I've just started working through Aviator Pro with Angle of Attack. I think their content is amazing and so am very happy to pay for it. I want to learn to fly the 737-Classic by IXEG correctly, however the Angle of Attack training is for the NG. I was wondering, how much of the material would be relevant to me as a classic user? Is there a lot of stuff relevant to the older aircraft, or is it basically pointless if I'm not using the NG? Thanks

    Wow - maybe New York City XP wasn't such a smart purchase after all...
  15. I just downloaded this for iPad and it's absolutely awesome but I believe I can only use it for a month before is have to pay a subscription. Does anybody do this? It adds a huge amount of immersion so I am considering paying.
