  1. If you're interested, here's the section from my Dubai stream looking at the airport scenery: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/2011789112
  2. I've become a streamer, streaming for clicks and cash! 😉 No, I'm still around but I'm doing fewer videos and more streams because I enjoy them more. Those reviews took me a good 8 hours each, which was fine during lockdown when the whole process was new and fun and there wasn't much else to do, but it got to the point that I was dreading doing them and I also got sick of listening to myself saying the same sorts of things over and over again, so i stopped. I do feel a bit bad about not doing them any more as I know people liked them and found them useful, but life's just too short to do things that you dislike doing (outside of earning a living!) Whenever there's a new airport out these days, I do a flight to it on Twitch and review it live on arrival. I don't go into quite as much detail as I used to, but I think these reviews give a good idea of whether the airport's worth buying or not.
  3. Hey Carts! Nice to hear from you and thanks for thinking of me. All's well but I've still not been tempted back into the world of scenery reviews I'm afraid. The last one I did was a year and seven days ago. They just take a very long time to do and this is not balanced by the number of views they get unfortunately. Then there's the general feeling of drudgery that comes from listening to myself saying the same old things over and over again! 😂 If there's (god forbid) another lockdown or something else that leads to me having loads of time on my hands then I may do some catching up, but otherwise I'll be sticking to having a look at new products live on Twitch. Anyhow, seeing as you asked, here's what I think of it so far, briefly and in text form! The good: General atmosphere - excellent Modelling - excellent Building Textures - excellent Performance - incredible. Better than many worse-looking, smaller airports for me Night lighting - very good Ground Textures - mostly very good, some oddities here and there Taxiway bridge visuals - very good The less good: Glass - disappointed that it disappears from the inside. It seems to be something that FlyTampa have never quite managed to get right. Taxiway bridge taxi experience - disappointingly bumpy, but I know they're working on a fix Interior modelling - not bad at all, but not up to the standard of some other devs (before you all start, yes, I know it's a FLIGHT simulator!) Oddities with jetways - sometimes the wrong one moves I'm certain they'll fix the odd bug that people have found but, given how long they've been working on it, I was a little surprised it wasn't more polished on release. Overall though, another fantastic addition to the sim and you'd be mad not to buy it. Cheers, Filbert
  4. Hello all! I don't normally promote my streams on here as I figured those of you who want to watch me fly planes are already following me on Twitch, but this one's a little different. PMDG's Robert Randazzo will be joining me live for a community Q&A, and I thought some of you might like to come along and watch or put your questions to him. If so, it would be great to see you over at https://twitch.tv/filbertflies. 🙂 All the best, Filbert
  5. This is covered in my review video. There are none taking up gates at passenger or cargo terminals.
  6. I don't have the FeelThere version so I can't say with absolute certainty, but I have never heard anything good about it! Comparing pictures, this appears to win hands down in every regard.
  7. I've got to be honest, while I appreciate this would be useful to a number of people, I don't know the first thing about AI parking space coding as I don't use any AI traffic and haven't since the P3D days - I always fly on Vatsim. While I could potentially get an AI Traffic add-on and learn all about it, realistically, I just don't want to make these videos any longer than they already are (or spend any longer making them than I currently do)! Sorry.
  8. Hi all, iniBuilds' LAX is due to release later today. Here's my review of it 🙂 https://youtu.be/_LL3LSr8-Ic
  9. I think this is because they're referred to as "waypoints" in the manual, Umberto 😉 I do kind of agree with the comments here. Coming from the quick & simple graphical interface of Toolbar Pushback, this does feel laborious, even if you don't place a single waypoint. Don't get me wrong: overall, the pushback experience is miles ahead of anything else available, but an updated, clickable path creation method would be very useful indeed.
  10. My understanding is that, for now, GSX passenger loading is not connected in any way to the Fenix EFB, so you'd click the load aircraft and then request boarding via the GSX menu.
  11. It wasn't the Fenix, it was the FBW. Fenix worked fine.
  12. Good morning all! I've just uploaded my pre-release review video thingy about GSX. I say "review video thingy" cos it's a bit of a mish mash to be honest - part introduction to what GSX is, part 'how to' video, and part review. Anyway, it's 40 minutes of (I hope) useful insight into the product. Let me know what you think. 🙂 Cheers, Alexis
  13. As you say, the sound issues was covered in his answer to my general question about updates for the Twotter.
