  1. So the key point after this ‘update’ that everyone is waiting on is turn down sliders and visuals and expect worse performance? It sounds like an amazing ‘update’.
  2. The sim of choice for years that is still running the same add-ons as P3D.
  3. Same. PBR just seems a silly gimmick to appease gamers. I prefer to use the platforms as a simulation. Kinda what it was designed for. Leave the ‘eye candy’ gimmicks for the kids on gaming platforms. Waste of time, resources and now everybody will charge more for the pointless thing.
  4. Same experience. But I’ll openly admit it was the ifly which I view a Mickey Mouse product. Poorly developed isn’t even strong enough. Embarrassing comes to mind...
  5. Sure has. I’ll never use them again.
  6. Can be if they don’t release your money or allow access to your own funds. I avoid PayPal like a plague nowadays.
  7. Cigarette companies made a lot of money too. Doesn’t mean they were good. 🙂
  8. I think everybody is getting out of PayPal. Much more trouble then they are worth for small business’s.
  9. Seemingly more then everyone else. Not my fault you can’t do it. 🙂
  10. The Civa INS allows you to load the ADEU cards with all the waypoints. 1-7 then 8-5 etc etc. Makes it every easy to fly long distance, without the hassle of every waypoint being inserted, Hopefully JF have this feature with their INS.
  11. Not sure why the MD-11 is so popular. Overrated to the hill in my opinion. Give me a early DC-10-10 or -30 at latest with INS only for nav. Of course the kids who can’t fly without a fmc or map would hate it. Those of us with actual skills would love it though.
  12. If this is accurate, this will be the most exciting release in years for any platform. Hopefully they don’t cater to the kids and their FMC A/P on skills only and let us who actually can fly keep the add-on as INS only. Load me up with a 747-100 with JT9D-7A’s and I’m a happy man. 🙂
  13. Clever marketing. Its amusing how a YouTube video next to the engines in the cabin sound like what I hear every time, yet a YouTube video from the cockpit - all wind noise, air conditioning, shakes, rattles and other noises - now is incorrect and should be replaced in the sim by highly processed and crystal clear engine sounds. Ok.
  14. Just going based on what I’ve read that in a 738 cockpit, on approach it’s very difficult to hear the engines. Not nearly as loud as 99.9% simmers have on their videos.
  15. I’ve read that on approach in a 738, the pilots can’t hear the engines at all.
  16. Another one that sounds way over the top to me. Like the pmdg over hyped engine sounds. Very processed.
  17. Correction : VNAV. typo. Yes I owned it. And returned it after it’s flawed fde and realizing the 3 engine models were a sound difference only and not a performance difference which was/is disappointing from a developer. Eveidently every 2nd avsim user is a 747 captain. Lol.
  18. Lol. The iFly isn’t close to being in the 3rd tier let alone the 2nd. How on earth they can release a 747 with such awful flight dynamics is beyond me. All 3 ‘different’ engine models have EXACTLY the same performance. A sound difference only. False advertising at best. Deceitful at worst. Watching it enter nearly 10 degrees nose down pitch at 5000-6000 ft /min in a normal LNAV decent was embarrassingly amusing. I spoke to some real 747 pilots who said that’s not even close to accurate and some 744 manuals I have support it. Come on, stop flogging a dead horse. The op is right. You can count on one had the genuine, ‘close to real thing’ add-ons. IFly ain’t one of them. Not in this century. Ever.
  19. I always thought comparing anything with Carenado was like comparing anything good with a pile of junk. Maybe there are exceptions. Maybe.
  20. Personally I think VC’s are a little overrated at times. There have been some great 2D panels out there over the years that look much more realistic then a lot of VC’s which look kinda tacky and fake. Half the experience on the VC is P3D? Is that so you can spend more time looking at nasty washed out, stutterey scenery? Exciting.
  21. True, but nobody does it and will rave about the ‘ultra clear, sharp textures with autogen into infinity’...etc. Makes me wonder if anyone has flown at all. *headscratch.
  22. Disagree totally and say photoscenery in any flight simulator platform looks less like the ‘real world’ then any other scenery. Add in haze, smoke, glare, pollution and who knows what else and the real world has far less definition then people think with ‘autogen’ barely visible at half the visible range simmers have it set in their setups. Some of these photo real screens posted look ridicules at times.
