  1. Piston Twin: MilViz Cessna 310R + A2A AccuFeel Turbine Twin: Flysimware Cessna 441 Conquest II + A2A AccuFeel Bigger Turbine Twin: Aerosoft's Twin Otter Extended + A2A AccuFeel (plus you can have floats!) The only thing with the Twin Otter is you can't put the GTN-750 into the panel, you have to have it as a pop-up.

    A2A Update Both Cherokee 180 and Comanche 250

    They also updated the Cessna 182 Skylane. \o/ I bet they did the C172 too, but I don't have it to see for sure.

    P3Dv4.4--all default Beechcraft removed

    I'd be surprised if they didn't already have their own arrangements.

    Looking for something fast, fun, and powered by propellers.

    A2A is awesomesauce and my favorite planes. :) I also love my MilViz Cessna 310R Redux; I think it's the nicest GA twin and is lots of fun to fly and really pretty. Works nice with A2A Accu-Feel also.

    Bush Flying in P3D V4

    P3D has a Maule, but its not that nice. I'd love for A2A to update their Cub for P3Dv4, but it doesn't have floats and Lewis said it's not likely to be a priority for a long time. 😢

    Bush Flying in P3D V4

    The MilViz DHC-2 Beaver is real nice, and has floats option too. Alaska has real nice flying, and if you get the Orbx Alaska, Pacific Fjords, and Pacific Northwest regions you'll have lots of good flying. Another place makes Tongass X, which fits between Alaska and Pacific Fjords to complete the coast. There's lots of cool info on setting things up and flying, plus a ton of free sceneries to add to the above ones at "Return to Misty Moorings" at http://return.mistymoorings.com/ Happy flying!

    What is going on with flight simulators?

    No, "moneymaking scam" implies there's fraud going on and thats just not true. 😠 You make a lot of claims about the market, but you never back them up. Those super-casual ppl you talk about are the ones that Flight Sim World thought existed and tried to sell to. Oops. Aerofly is trying, too, and we'll see how that goes. And what makes you think it's "100% true" that flight sims being 64-bit now "sound ridiculous" to newcomers? Anybody who uses PC and does games understands that 64-bit means more usable memory. Car sims/games really aren't relevant to flight sims. Zooming around in a car is more "exciting" than most flight sim flying (maybe try DCS or something for "exciting": flying. People my age (23) mostly like "exciting" and think flight sims are slow and boring. I'm an outlier by a long ways I guess, cuz I like flying GA planes and sightseeing and learning to fly and navigate properly. If you want simulated ownership, wear and tear, etc, some makers like A2A have had that for a long time. But I dont think there will ever be a out-of-the-box simulator that will make people happy just on its own. Some ppl like airliners and wont want to pay extra for a bunch of GA planes and avionics they'll never use, and vice-versa. Some ppl want to fly Europe and won't want to pay extra for a bunch of highly detailed NA, SA, Africa, etc, scenery. And so on. Having a good base sim that you can then customize to your liking is the way things are because it works well and everyone can buy what they want and not have to pay for things they dont want. Maybe learn more about flight sims and ppl who fly them before writing novels. 😛

    I think they'd lose money doing that, though... 🤔

    Are you a real world pilot (P3D users only please)

    Do you ever watch Jerry Wagner's YouTube videos? He has a Cessna 414 and is lots of fun to "ride along" with. 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gtjh0LJTWsI

    No, but I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night... 😛

    What is going on with flight simulators?

    The OP was pretty funny and I think we can all relate to it, but the 'moneymaking scam' part wasn't. Theres a lot of ppl working hard, putting their hearts into it, and making amazing things for flight sims. Some, like the "Return to Misty Moorings" group, even doing it for free out of love for flying. And tons of ppl that are happy and cheerful and ready to help ppl here. :)

    ORBX issues

    Yikes, maybe look in your Event Log for hard disk errors? Sounds like one of the things that happens when a disk starts failing... 😞
  13. Buffy Foster

    P3D V4 on a separate drive, need to reinstall OS

    I think some dependencies, like those dang VC++ libraries, would be an issue, too.

    A2A Accu-Sim Mustangs for P3Dv4 now out!

    Yup: New third-party GPS integration options (Flight 1 GNS 430 and GTN 650 and RealityXP GNS 430) Check out the "Features" tab: https://a2asimulations.com/product/accu-sim-p-51d-civilian-p3dv4/
  15. A2A have released their Accu-Sim Mustang, both Civilian and Military versions, for P3Dv4! \o/ The Accu-Sim P-51 Mustang is here finally in its P3Dv4 guise. Back in 2004, we released a P-51D for Microsoft Flight Simulator 9 that used a flight modelling process known as “Absolute Realism.” A lot of characteristics were being experienced for the first time in flight simulation. If you flew flight simulators, you were used to the old “yank and bank” as most flight simmers held the position that aircraft really didn’t spin. This was largely because, back then, developers were largely programmers, with no flying experience. Even today, while it’s getting more common, it’s still rare to find a developer who actually has even taken the controls of a real aircraft.Today, A2A has the wind at our back, with Accu-Sim helping to bring serious aviators and simulation together. However, the industry as a whole hasn’t really budged that much as people are discovering that it’s not enough to be a pilot, or even a highly experienced pilot. It takes an entirely different skill set to be able to observe, translate, and re-create the experience. It’s not being a pilot, aeronautical engineer, or even a highly skilled aircraft modeller that makes the difference. It’s the combination of “all the above” with, perhaps most importantly, a relentless drive to re-create the most believable experience possible. Even if you have never flown an aircraft before, you as a living person with an inherently deep sense of what is right or wrong in the physical world you live in. You touch things, see things, and hear things every minute of every day. So trust your instincts, because, if it doesn’t feel or sound right to you, it probably isn’t right.Also, in the real world, actions create lasting results, both good and bad. There are consequences everywhere inside of a cockpit, especially a high performance, propeller-powered, combustion driven aircraft. This is where the persistent aircraft makes all the difference. In the real world, you don’t get a fresh new aircraft every time you strap yourself into the cockpit. The aircraft is a physical machine that exists in the world. If your aircraft was pulling to the right when you parked it, it will still be pulling when you taxi to the runway the next day. When things happen in a simulated world as you expect in the real world, you start to treat it as if it is just that, real.With lasting results, wrapped inside the newest modelling and advanced material-making techniques, you will have an aircraft that you can spend not just minutes, but hours admiring.. Together, with professionally recorded sounds and physics, the end result is the sense of having a complete, real, majestic, raw, flying machine stuffed inside your computer. And we hope, you don’t just treat it like any aircraft, but rather like “your” aircraft.We hope you enjoy your new beautiful bird, and hope you learn to fly and treat her well.
