  1. Users will be able to take on maintenance jobs in the latest update to Career Mode in Flight Sim World. Dovetail Games announced the update, which adds a number of adjustments to missions, earlier this evening. As well as bug fixes, a variety of new features have been added including maintenance jobs, increased potential numbers of passengers and weights of cargo for some jobs, and changes to weather conditions for some missions.
  2. I've converted and repackaged (with his permission) Jamrom23T's excellent 70s themed repaints for the Justflight Piper Arrow III aircraft. You can find them in the FSW repaint download section here at
  3. Flight Sim World currently has a March Madness sale going on with FSW 68% off and almost all DLC on sale too.
  4. Join us for a long overdue FSW Break Multiplayer flight March 24, 2018 from 8 PM ET (12 AM GMT) to 11 PM ET (3 AM GMT). If unable to join us, there are flights almost every night at the same time. To communicate during the flight, use the Group Flights voice channel located here. Hope to see you there! The link is to the FSW Break Discord Channel
  5. Some mighty fine clouds appeared over Hawaii at the weekend.
  6. I suspect the sale price will win over some more purchasers... like me! Sorry I'm so shallow! Anyhow the download went well from Steam last night and I began the initial lessons. Impressive graphics (which we all know about by now). The Cub seemed to handle as this layman might expect. The install defaulted to mid high on the gfx sliders. OK until I switched to an external view on the lesson - SLideshow!! It seems reducing the scenery slider did the trick so far. Or was it my machine catching up with all the graphics? Should I have waited a few minutes? All lessons completed, just need to complete the 3 hours free flight. Done one mission too - deadstick the Cherrytree into Liverpool. Any tips for what slider has the most impact on FPS and smoothness please? Win7 64 bit ultimate i7 950 @3.06GHz 24Gb RAM 2Gb nvidia GTX960 HDD only about 25% full :) In it for the long haul now - pun intended - waiting for any tubeliners LOL!
  7. Pretty with FTX...a flight from Shoreham to Blackbrushe Wondering whats coming from Orbx for FSW...I know, all the new releases are coming to Aerofly2 and X-Plane 11. I appreciate you looking at this pictorial, please feel free to comment...
  8. The bar that DTG has set for default GA aircraft in Flight Sim World, albiet some minor issues, is set pretty high.. When they release the new biz jet they are talking about, I'm just curious how it will be. Can't wait to see it...
  9. My First Flight in FSW...a few quickies for you (if interested)? I appreciate you looking at this pictorial, please feel free to comment...
  10. Just got FSW the other day on Steam Sale. Will be interesting to see where DTG takes the sim. In our small and niche genre FS development is always welcome FSWMM04 by Nev_in, on Flickr FSWMM01 by Nev_in, on Flickr FSWMM02 by Nev_in, on Flickr FSWMM03 by Nev_in, on Flickr
  11. I'm going to place this inquiry here because it is the platform I use. Notwithstanding, the issue may be globally encumbering to pairing Flight simming platforms. (Note, I've also posted this in LM forum) "SKY TEXTURES". I'm curious as to how many of us have invested and use ENVTEX or REX Sky Textures. Bear with me. Lately, I've notice some interesting effects on performance with these enhancement textures(programs). In particular, spikes in CPU usage when certain sky textures package are in use. Today, as I write this, I'm experiencing 100% CPU usage and blurry textures despite making any adjustment to the UI settings within P3Dv4.1 (specs: I7 4790K, oc to 4.6 voltage at 1.260- GTX 1080). Using Envtex/ENVDIR with sky setting of "Random" I flew out of FSDT KMEM for AS EDDF. I've experience long texture loading times as I switch views and the CPU spikes and ultimately flat-lines at 100%. On this flight, under the random ENVTEX setting, i'm seeing a sky set for the first time (in all my flights using ENVTEX/EVNDIR). Oddly, and to the point, as I continue my track east with the sun setting on my tail and blackness befalls, the CPU usage dropped dramatically to 65% usage. Thus suggesting that the sky, now black, no long contain textures that may induce high CPU usage. Now, I love ENVTEX/ENVDIR and by no means am I pulling down the application. ENVTEX/ENVDIR is not the only time I've witness this. I had an identical challenge with REX4 which was then resolved by earlier versions of ENVTEX or and the Free Sky Texture Packages. So I'm putting this out there for us to investigate and mitigate the potential threatening sources(s) so we can get back to flight. Share you thoughts and experience thank you Keino333/usaboy
  13. I really wanted to believe that FSW was not going to be another Train Simulator. I did, until today. If FSW is still in Early Access, that means it's not complete. If it's not complete, you would generally have the entire development team working to finish the development process. If you are producing and selling DLC, then you are no longer in the Early Access stage. No, I will not accept some excuse about developing DLC alongside the title, the title is not complete. No, I will not support this terrible business model, and no, I will no longer support FSW or Dovetail Games. My positive review on Steam has been edited and changed to a Not Recommended along with an exact explanation why. No, just no.
  14. Getting some pretty stunning sunsets!!
  15. EchoKilo

    Cloud Surfing

    Having some fun with the DA42 Twin Star.
  16. Can we please get a Mission Editor sticky or dedicated forum for the FSW Mission Editor? Thanks!
  17. Was checking out the update to FSW today and snapped this one of the JF Arrow
  18. The lighting and ground textures / autogen still need some work, but flying above and below these clouds is really fun.
  19. The first payware add-on for FSW is available now: FS-Flightcontrol gives you control over every aspect of your flight and includes a moving map too, visit the homepage here: FS-Flightcontrol also works with FSX, FSX:SE, X-Plane and that submarine simulator I mean P3D, so it's got to be great value... You can select which sim you want to use it with on launch, it then loads the scenery.cfg for that sim on first run: Then specify your start location and any other factors you require: There's a free 14-day trial, it's a 58mb download which took about 20 seconds on my PC, give it a try!
  20. Orbx Landclass now in FSW...YeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeHaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FSW compiled the landclass...and as Jackie Gleason used to say; ........................" sweet it is"! FSW is getting like a comfy and favorite keeps ROCKING, right there by the Fall fire.....acorns, pine-cones n' all! Now going to add Europe OLC.... "and away, we gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!" Cheers,
  21. Gawd, this sim has 'Soul'! The night flight between KORS and Abbotsford, was so incredible...and the screen grabs do not due the actual upon-the-screen any sort of justice! I have stated many times since purchasing and installing, that this sim is so different from my FSX:SE, XP11, P3D has such depth of atmospheric 'feel' feel..that you flying through, and over the environment...especially at night. They have KILLED this..and not even RTM! The terrain, the lighting engine, the MOON...casting across the ocean...gawd...this is such a piece of work. I can't stop flying the dang, wow, wow... The images don't have 30 percent of the depth and clarity of the real on-screen image..but whatever they are...just wanted to share this fabulous night operation experience..: To get some detail up...left click once upon each image, and then left click once more...then some details shows...
  22. All of these except for the first one are pics from a flight I took yesterday with the Grey and Rainy theme from KMRY to KSTS. I thought the clouds looked really good. just about all of it did really... Its an amazing thing when the Orbx ground scenery is the most detracting part
