  1. Hey @vbazillio, excellent work again. I have a question. If someone were to commission you to do something like this for a small regional airport, how much would you charge for it?
  2. I think the official release will happen any day now because the last update us beta testers got had just two logs on the patch notes. Looks like the bulk of the work has been done.
  3. I'm not familiar with the place at all but this looks like fantastic work!
  4. FSX used humans to do the recordings for ATC but in my opinion it ended up sounding way worse because those recordings had to be stitched together to create the messages. It sounded disjointed and weird. MSFS uses AI voices that sound a bit more artificial but there is a much better flow in the speech that makes me enjoy it much more.
  5. I'm not a pilot and I'm not very adept at sim flying either but I have had situations in MSFS when I requested a visual approach and ATC would rejected it due to conditions calling for IFR operations. I was actually really impressed with this as it was something I never experienced in FSX. Is this an example of what you're talking about or does it have more to do with switching active runways based on wind changes?
  6. Microsoft's data (which is a lot more accurate) says the opposite. The vast majority of users (who probably don't know what navigraph is) use GA aircraft in the sim. My source is Matt from WT lol.
  7. So not much done in this update which leads me to believe that the next one will be the full release.
  8. I kinda expected this. The numbers don't lie. If you want to make more money than you've ever seen as an add-on dev, MSFS is the platform that'll get you there.
  9. Heatblur Simulations and Indiafoxtecho are thrilled to announce the development of the F-14A & B Tomcat for the Microsoft Flight Simulator platform! The DCS: F-14 has been praised for its exceptional level of realism and attention to detail, and together, we are excited to develop an F-14 for Microsoft Flight Simulator with much the same ethos. Whether you're an experienced virtual pilot or just starting out, you'll be able to experience the thrill of flying one of the most iconic aircraft in aviation history in an entirely new way across the globe. The F-14 Tomcat is a legend in the world of aviation and we're excited to give players the opportunity to take control of this incredible machine. From the advanced avionics to the powerful engines, we will strive to make the Flight Simulator rendition of the F-14 as authentic as possible. We’re excited to combine the best of two worlds: IndiaFoxtEcho’s experience in Flight Simulator and Heatblur’s experience in DCS, and believe that we can combine some of the very best across all simulation platforms. What better opportunity than a great new partnership to bring the iconic Tomcat into a simulator, where you can fly and enjoy its magnificence anywhere in the world. The Flight Simulator version of the F-14 will focus on recreating the core flying aspects of the Tomcat such as accurate flight dynamics, core avionics and using its suite of navigational and other systems. Our teams will strive to bring you as many features as is possible on the Flight Simulator platform while maintaining the bar of quality and accuracy which you all expect. “Our F-14 has been a labour of love for years, and bringing an authentic experience of this legendary aircraft to a broader audience is yet another step in our F-14 journey. Due to our ambitious internal DCS roadmap, partnering with IndiaFoxtEcho to bring our F-14 to the Flight Simulator platform was a slam-dunk, and knowing the IFE team’s passion for the F-14 matches our own, we enter a new comfortable and natural partnership. We’re super excited for this expansion of our F-14 and new opportunities it presents both to ourselves and the community!” -Heatblur Simulations “Since the announcement of Microsoft Flight Simulator we have been willing to bring a state-of-the-art Tomcat to this platform, as we did, a long time ago, for previous iteration of this simulator and we have always been huge fans of the Heatblur DCS rendition. We are very excited to cooperate with them and we are confident that working together with them we can create a detailed and realistic F-14 for MSFS.” - IndiaFoxtEcho Stay tuned for more information as development progresses and we take steps to continue our Tomcat journey. The aircraft is currently neck deep in development and we expect it to be released later this year. Thank you all for your support and excitement, and we look forward to once again sharing the cadillac-roomy F-14 cockpit in Asobo’s wonderful sim with you all! Sincerely, Heatblur & IndiaFoxtEcho https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=pfbid02iDFoRecoRjPWBETsU25voQPoAw6mtMHka8G3m1vNMa1NZJxaDFyat92PCLBZYR4Ql&id=100056384396101&mibextid=Nif5oz
  10. I never accused you of not having the sim, I said you SOUNDED like someone who didn't and I stand by that statement. Your hyperbole was ludicrous. You said the sim has no depth but it has the most advanced default avionics of any sim on the market. Half these gripes have nothing to do with depth and from my experience (and many others I'm sure) I have no issues with weather maintaining accuracy during flights.
  11. You sound like someone who doesn't actually own the sim and your're just regurgitating stuff you've heard.
  12. Trees are mostly just the right size where I live and my country is pretty obscure. It used to be wayyyyyyyyy worse but they listened to the feed back and now the hills and mountains don't look like porcupines anymore.
