  1. I wish they would just stop improving the 737 for a year and maybe pause the release of the 737-900 and just focus on rolling out the EFB and 777. They are just polishing something that is already shiny at this point and to be honest the kind of improvements to the LNAV and autoflight they talk about only a Boeing pilot would notice.
  2. I really hope Fenix doesn't spend the next 5 years polishing something that is already pretty good...would really like them to see building an A330 or something new.
  3. Thanks all - lets hope there is an update for this on Tuesday (which is usually when hot fixes get released).
  4. So the performance issues experienced by some of us seem to be caused by the compile optimizations not running when we first launch the aircraft as per: The above doesn't work for me - does anyone have a workaround until we get an official fix?
  5. I have flown on VATSIM text only for the last ~ 10 years and never had any issues. ATC will not ignore/forget you when you are on approach/departure however during taxi/startup you should be prepared to nudge ATC if they are late in replying to your requests. Like with anything hard in life it's easier if you take it one step at a time. Use text only and once you get confident you can try and do voice receive which is where you reply in text and receive over voice then you can progress to being voice both ways.
  6. I imagine you get 0.05fps more because you can hide the EFB in the cockpit... Otherwise nothing really changes because I suspect the cockpit EFB is just rendering the same site hosted on the webserver as well.
  7. They can all be learned in a matter of hours by just watching Youtube videos. Better question for you will be which one will you enjoy the most? Typically people buy the ones they see flying in their local airports or aircraft they have frequently flown on before.
  8. The tablet is hosted on a webserver so you just open the address: on your device and you have it!
  9. The EFB experience is just something else when you use it on an iPad/Talbet or even your phone browser. I think because the rendering is a lot quicker outside of the sim. But I think also because it just feels more "seamless" and cool to be able to start boarding from your tablet while you program the FMC..
  10. I would really recommend you sit down and just watch video of someone going through the cold + dark setup and then takeoff.
  11. As much as I like discord I kind of agree we need a dedicated forum here or hell even a Subreddit on Reddit would be good if you can't get a Forum up and running in time.
  12. You need to click the "home" button the EFB and it will unlock! Passcode is 0000.
  13. I don't get time to play MSFS or games for that matter...so I can just watch someone streaming it and it's honestly like 90% of the enjoyment I would get if I was playing it myself without having to actually play it lol
  14. It makes the sim 100% more enjoyable having a variety of detailed aircraft to fly. Once you learn one it's muscle memory at that point it's very difficult to forget and to be honest you can learn to fly both at a high level if you don't worry too much about learning how every system works in detial.
  15. The appeal of streaming is you can get almost 90% of the enjoying of playing a game without actually having to play it yourself.
