  1. for what its worth and my 2 cents - the following is a repeat of my comment on the subject a few days ago on the Orbyx Forum The news elsewhere that Orbx have responded to the wishes of at least a minority of regular customers prompted me to maybe look at the marketing reasons why Orbx - a true marketing company - might have made their decision on producing the final part of their Global plan for OLC scenery -- i.e. ----- Asia - which some may remember as planned area 5 some time ago. My business background always makes me look at Flight Sim subjects like this - with my own marketing eye of which research must be the first step in any decision to proceed with any product Firstly - we had Microsoft with FSX - but carried on too long because of the small sim market - and they gave it away to Lockheed. Some might say that they made a blue - in that their eyes became fixed on consoles and gaming - a Huge market - because of the age factor - and we all know the story of the success in that Market. What they didn't see - or maybe ignored - was the entrance in the flight sim Market of a little Aussie mob - which eventually became known as Orbx who had already changed the "Ground" rules of Australian scenery with a few innovations of their own that actually produced a series of software replacing the posterised FSX with coloured semi -regional areas of Australia that eventually became Australia V1. - and an England regional - (the only competition at that time was really only Just flight with UK VFR of which I still have the discs) Lockheed's Idea at the time must have been to secure the codes for what they wanted was a training aid that had the training potential in military and Civil flight schools - and their production of P3D- flight sim - 1 step above FSX - eventually with the huge help of a growing Orbx concentrating first of all in Global - World regional scenery way beyond that previously seen in a Flight Sim Orbx had introduced -along with a few other smaller developers - a World vastly different than used in FSX - aircraft to tempt the most ardent VFR - IFR - distance tube flyer - and Orbx working to a time table of completing the World's regions and OLC of which 2 were still in development and remained missing links inJune 2019 In the same June last year Microsoft - now deep into gaming on PCs and consoles - maybe remembering the early days of their FSX -with a playgame of flying your own 747 - Concorde - etc - and a plethora of aircraft - ancient and modern that were developed in the wake of P3D V1/2/3/4 and the newcomer XP - announced with a great blast of publicity - videos and screenshots - which made us all go "WOW" the return to a flight sim - MSFS Whether we were conned or not - is worthy of another question - for later thoughts What it did do was a huge concentration by developers to churn out a miriad of new series of sceneries - but no specific aircraft - other than what might be called by some as eye candy for this new sim - and most of the WIP for P3D and XP placed on the back burner at the same as Lockheed rushed out a New sim - P3D v5 - adding more pressure on developers to make existing software work in V5 All in the middle of a Covid pandemic !! Microsoft had seen another marketing opportunity to return to flight simming which now had made a huge development strides in the 'Aged' market of old and new budding pilots - happily flying the same plethora of vintage and modern versions of aircrafts in World scenery as an hitherto unknown when they abandoned FSX . viz - the same market of Gamers they started fsx for all those years ago - based on Commodore and Apple success with this new flight sim - amongst all as a GAME Same market - but based on super PCs and the Console hardware power - potentialy a different game to other simulations (trains and Trucks) Apart from aircraft - are developers now getting a second breath - and maybe have realised that MSFS is not quite what the market thought it might not be -- JUST YET - and what appears to be a change of thought with regard to the new P3D V5 with dX12 - and XP with Vulcan literally changing the Scene for a return to a separate development of software than that of MSFS. Maybe recognition of not quite the same potential for addons for the 1000s more X Boxes - that MS have planned the sim MSFS - on. In summary - The sim market will continue to grow because P3D and XP have not been abandoned as originally thought back in June last year - Lockheed will heed the obvious need to develop V5 beyond the poor state it is in versus its own V4.5 - because it may well have a much longer life in the flight sim community - especially amongst we who look for a simulator - as opposed to a simplified X Box gaming version - assuming that MS will not continue to try to develop such a top flight sim with a gaming Asobo The decision by Orbx to continue development of its Global base addons in the OLC Asia package will give some impetus to Lockheed and XP that Orbx has not abandoned its plans to provide us with a decent background to fly our Vintage and Modern tubes around in - using the expenses we have already proved we are willing to add to in scenery - aircraft - and the new hardware that is now on the market - and NOT forgetting the strides in monitors/TVs in 4 and 8 K- HDR should be a benefit to flight sims - not a source of complaints Others will follow the example set this week by Orbx - who have listened to the words of long time simmers - and we - the customer - will still have the choices of sim that covers our Market needs The right - Flight "Simulator" product - that fits into the right hardware - at the right cost -- at a fun profit for all
  2. I have started using the latest version of V5 and liking it - but I cannot stomach the huge hazy horizons and because of the few complaints around EA I don't even try that aspect I am also sticking with V4 because I have a load of A/C in my hangar that doesn't fit v5 MSFS will have to wait for me until the fun gaming version on X Box when those of us - who keep trying to beta test the current PC version finally get some aircraft to "Play" with
  3. if you can find reverse thrust anywhere in P3D controls - please let me know and should there be one that needs an axis - how is it set up on a saitek yoke and double throttle setup Roll on Honeycome Bravo
  4. again - from the Bosses mouth https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/202172-development-update-on-openlc-asia/
  5. This was the announcement from ED earlier today:------ "Just to set expectations, we plan to announce the roadmap specifically to openLC Asia. There won’t be previews etc. but our plan on it’s rollout over the next 12 months."
  6. @rmeier many thanks for your suggestion - I don't know what .XML means but your translation worked I tested taking off without full power (torque) and actually had a 400 mile trouble free flight in the PA31T and Yesterday the PA 42T was good as well😀
  7. i checked the PA 42 and took notice of the SU procedure particularly on the turbo and Bingo all went well on one test so far Downloaded PA31 T again and will try that ASAP " If all else fails - read the B@#$%y instructions👴
  8. thanks for that in Miviz turbo otter for example - that excessive Torque is also a reason for shut down especially on take off I will check this on my 2 carenado PA Turbos and report back
  9. I placed the following in the PA42 section but would like to try it here ""' A few months ago I bought the 31T Chieftain and constantly had 1 engine failure within 5 mins after take off then the second engine failed - checked the usual fuel pump - fuel on etc. - eventually gave up the aircraft Yesterday in the big sale - I bought the PA42T version - familiarized myself with all controls etc. - no problems with engine starts - took off and got engine failures on both Used the software engine starts and checked position of switches with Start up Procedures - took of ---- with the same result of both engine failures What am I doing wrong - that that repeats exactly what happened with the PA 31T many years ago I had a PPL twin licence - but never came up against a Turbo I don't have any problems with all my many Carenado aircrafts - including the turbo aero Commander 690

  11. A few months ago I bought the 31T Chieftain and constantly had 1 engine failure within 5 mins after take off then the second engine failed - checked the usual fuel pump - fuel on etc - eventually gave up the aircraft Yesterday in the big sale - I bought the PA42T version - familiarized myself with all controls etc. - no problems with engine starts - took off and got engine failures on both Used the software engine starts - and noted position of switches in line with startup procedures - took off - both engines failed again I don't have any other probs with all my many Carenado aircraft - including Turbos - eg Aero Commander 690 so what am i doing wrong on this new aircraft that repeats what I must have done - or failed to do - on the PA 31T Many years ago I did have a PPL on twins but never came up against a Turbo engine
  12. This is the link but it's a long going subject https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/191608-poll-an-openlc-solution-for-asia/page/4/?tab=comments#comment-1723566 I quoted Ed - verbatim but its somewhere in the file
  13. On Orbyx 6 hours ago - we got the news from the Boss Ed Correia Head Of Production & Operations Location: Melbourne Posted 6 hours ago We have some news coming next week about openLC Asia 🙂
  14. Thanks for the tips - I am wading through the Utubes and also learned it can be used in all the views - internal and external as well as drone
  15. I placed the following in Obyx but got nowhere with this question "" I don't use MSFS much but when I do --- I really like to use my wi-fi X box controller to control the camera I bought Chaseplane a while ago and have tried to use it -- but I just don't like the need to use my keyboard and with my sight - and memory - it takes a while to get the right key Soooh -- has anyone worked out a system that allows the X Box controller to be used with Chaseplane ??
