  1. That's AF-1...which is based at Edwards AFB. It's a little far from home ;) Great shots though.
  2. Does it talk SimDIS (or just DIS)? Can I use my own worldwide database (we have a very expensive, very detailed one)?
  3. Most companies would set up additional mirror sites to compensate for traffic. Also, host the downloads on servers or in server farms that can handle the traffic if they cant support more mirrors. Google or AWS can allow you to have a small footprint and can spin up additional VMs as load increases and would spin them down accordingly. This would save cost, assuming your pricing structure is set up correctly.
  4. Any thoughts on the Thrustmaster TFTP? Or are they complete crap?
  5. What port is XE trying to use? Is it excepted in Windows Firewall? What protocol is it using? Did you reset your internet router this weekend (probably not, but just checking)? I am at work and can't look at this on my machine. I just got Creators Update over the weekend but didn't have the time to turn on X-plane yet. I can test tonight, but I am running Win10 Home on the simulator.
  6. Everyone using Home or Pro? Or a mix? Those with Home it works, those with Pro it doesn't? Vice Versa?
  7. You mean, you all don't want a persistent world flight sim. Where you log in to a server somewhere, have integrated voice-chat, built in flight planning and a working ATC AI/Player, all flying in the same airspace?
  8. Yeah, I am awaiting the Global since its the most likely. Though there is a freeware G4 that got released not too long ago. It flies, but don't expect much depth. Pretty though.
  9. May be a dumb question, but they have different IP addresses right? Both set to DHCP on the router? Next thing to look at are the folder permissions/sharing attributes on PC1.
  10. LOL this reminds me of when I was visiting my brother-in-law and he had just got the Vive. My In-laws and my wife were all taking turns playing with it, and there was this one VR that put you on a narrow bridge over a chasm. Even without feet rendered in the environment, they couldn't force themselves to take the step off. I was sitting there laughing at them saying "you know its not real right?" They just said "ha, ha, you don't realize what its like yet". Wo when my turn came, I went to the same bridge, and promptly took the few steps off the side of the bridge. Now falling wasn't programmed so you just kinda floated there, but the many many years of playing video games has given me the ability to disassociate what I see/hear and what is really going on. I got dirty looks when I asked what they thought was so difficult (im a sarcastic a**hole).
  11. X-plane can export GPS data to Fltplan Go (free) onto a tablet or into a browser tab (or Foreflight if you have a subscription). Fltplan GO can give you a moving map and allows you to scroll around and get the info you need. I haven't used Fltplan GO so I am not certain on ALL of the data it will give you access to.
  12. 100% yes, do this. you could arguably download them ahead of time, but yes...absolutely uninstall your GPU drivers before shutting the system down to remove and replace with new card.
  13. Then as Jimm has stated, you'll just need to wait a bit longer. Not ideal at all I understand. Alternatives will make you even less happy.
  14. I assume you sent an email to Cameron on x-aviation website with the pertinent ticket details?
  15. But how much better is the vanilla X-Plane from a vanilla FSX? How many frames are you getting in your modded FSX. Since that info was not listed above I do not know what your are trying to compare it to. If you are trying to get to 60FPS, I think you are trying to realize a framerate that, although the gold standard with different types of games, is unnecessary for a flight simulator. Your running with newer, higher-end hardware than I am. So my graphics settings are probably set quite a bit lower than yours, but when my sim shows F-act: 28-30FPS, its smooth and without stuttering. If the sim is smooth and without stutters, does it matter what the F-Act says?
  16. I just saw this elsewhere, a new file on the Org that was just put up 3 hours ago but gives some good (reviews) control over some graphics settings in XP.
  17. If I remember correctly, they have had a lot of issues with controls either keeping their settings or working at all. I use an Xbox One controller and since about PB11 or so, the right analog stick no longer works within the game. I can set it to pan the camera around in the settings, but it wont work in the game. I know I have seen other people complain, but never saw anything from LR on if they would fix it. The rest of the controller works fine though, just not the right analog stick.
  18. A line from the play Hamlet, by William Shakespeare. An officer of the palace guard says this after the ghost of the dead king appears, walking over the palace walls. Note: “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark” is used to describe corruption or a situation in which something is wrong. -Wikipedia
  19. Not yet, They are trying to push for incremental seasonal changes instead of an on/off situation. Long term plan.
  20. Also, going from a 2700K to a 7700K means going from DDR3 to DDR4 RAM, theres just so much more being changed during this upgrade that will make the overall system THAT much better than just a simple CPU upgrade.
