  1. I liked the 757 v2, but I always thought the cockpit textures were bad. This updated version seemed to fix that. Just from my first quick look it all seems much better and crisper. I have yet to fly any of them yet.

    A350

    Watch QPilots video on YT. It worked a treat for me. Basically you have to download and use the free X-FMC and then import from EFASS the route with sids/ stars.
  3. I have a 4TB external drive to mirror my internal 4TB. I took 20 hours to copy the data over!
  4. For a BETA it is great and very flyable, already a lot less bugs than a lot of aircraft which have been released for months.
  5. EFASS is nice, but unfortunately the dev died in some tragic accident earlier in the year. I am not sure if it is still supported. I think someone was trying to buy the source code from the family.
  6. I got it. Just had a quick flight and the systems and all that seem good at first glance. All those years flying the Aerosoft buses has certainly paid off for me! But I have to say it - the IXEG is still the king of immersion with those amazing sounds and cockpit textures.I was a little underwhelmed with the FF sounds. I can not see anywhere to adjust them. I am sure there are some settings in a menu somewhere which I have not found yet. Also a strange choice of liveries - Korean Air, Ryanair, American and Air Berlin - isn't Ryanair all Boeing?? I am sure the painters will be at work and more liveries will be out soon. The FPS seem good, no issues and the moving Google map in the tablet is a nice touch.
  7. KRIC is an awesome piece of freeware. Nice regional airport which is not only accurate but very well detailed.

    Nimbus TFFJ St Barts

    I do not have it, but over on the org forum people say it is heavy on frames.
  9. I don't think we are allowed post links anymore on avsim. Google alpilotx hd mesh. Download the tiles you want and put them in your custom scenery - put them at the bottom below all other scenery entries in your scenery.ini. Then run OrthoXP using your Bing ZL17 and direct the overlays to the Earth Nav folder of the hd mesh folder which you recently downloaded. In scenery.ini, airports overlays ortho tiles hd mesh folder

    EIDW - Dublin V2

    Did they do anything with modeling the city itself, or just the airport?
  11. are you using the mesh and running the overlays from alpilotx hd mesh?

    Landing Orcas Island

    Both the plane and your sim looks excellent. Great colors! I have been procrastinating between getting the Vflyte Cirrus SR20 and this Twin Comanche. I think I am going to pull the trigger on the Comanche. Over at PC Aviator all VFlyte aircraft are on sale right now for $20.95 and I have an additional $5 coupon which makes it a great deal.
  13. As stated above if you have bandwidth restrictions it may not be a good idea for you. I have a fast connection and no limits. I have probably downloaded about 3TB of tiles in the past month alone. That only gives me about two thirds of western europe at a pretty low zoom level of 16. A 20 min video of youtube to show you how to do it is nothing in comparison. May be 1/1000th of one single tile in bandwith.

    Sedona UHD?

    If you scroll towards the end of the thread you will see user comments. Personally I think some are a little harsh and people are expecting perfection. https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/126865-sedona-uhd/&page=2
  15. When I have certain scripts "active" and click on XPRealistic in the FlyLua macro menu nothing happens, it does not open up the UI. When the scripts are removed from the folder and I click it, the UI opens up. I don't know what else explains this other than a script conflict.
