  1. We occasionally like to take the pulse of our members and gauge what's important to you and what's not. We have put together a simple 9 question survey regarding some of our major features that we would like you to rate. The concept is simple; rate a feature using a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being "MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU". An entry of 1 will indicate that the feature being reviewed is not important to you at all. You can participate in the survey here and we would appreciate you taking the short two minutes or less to fill it out.
  2. Hello folks, this was going into the 747v3 beta announcement thread at first, but then I decided it would be better as a separate topic, as it became a rather lengthy piece. It's specifically aimed at Kyle and other PMDGers, but feel free to chip in. Sometimes I wonder, how much more of an improvement we can expect in terms of fidelity and memory usage on the FSX platform, especially regarding future products. The 32bit limit is not going away, unless you change to X-Plane or P3D (the latter being cost-prohibitive for modest earners like myself - and according to PMDG forum staff - not even legally sound). It has been said that the memory footprint of this product (747v3) has been improved over the T7, yet will we have do deal with the same limitations to avoid OOM-armageddon (switching off scenery, dial down textures, etc.)? It sometimes dims my enthusiasm to content with the ancient FSX architecture for the sake of cost savings and legal concerns. The old problem of wanting the newest, most flashy features without investing a fortune. Of course PMDG will not disclose their long-term production schedule here, but how much more can we hope to gain from FSX and PMDG going forward. Seeing the increasing duration of development cycles and how our favorite sim company cranks the dials to 11 every time. How much longer until FSX will be abandoned for the sake of technological progress? I am not a student pilot, not a flight instructor, just a random guy in his thirties who lives the dream of flying an airliner from the front of the tube - being as close to real procedures as possible. I fly only for recreational purposes, so according to LockMart (and PMDG), should not use P3D. Yet it seems to be the most modern, feature-rich and compatible platform out there. I drool over those screenshots in the new 747 thread, fully aware that it will never look like that in my FSX. It feels like standing in front of a Tesla store and dreaming of a Model X in the garage. Yes, many simmers do not care about the legal side of things (hell, not even some of the developers do), they fork out lots of cash to get their fix (then there is the underground pirate community). But I am starting to feel a bit lost in all of this. What does the developer community expect us to do? Flight simming was always an expensive hobby. But the top end of the market moves ever further out of reach for the average simmer. Switching over from FS9 to FSX was alright, but the price point of everything P3D is obviously aimed at the business world. No way am I paying the price of a dishwasher or gaming console on every upgrade cycle. Even if I had the means, it would be irrational. If this trend continues, I would rather earn a PPL and fly for real. I am worried about the future of my sim hobby. Please, try to approximate your vision regarding FSX. Disregarding eye-candy, will major advancements be omitted on the legacy platform in future releases? What upgrade path would you recommend for the private consumer? TL;DR Some poor guy is worried about the lifespan left in FSX and is uncertain on how to proceed. Please advice.
  3. AVSIM is pleased to announce that we have reopened our Member Reviews System. The new / revamped system provides our members an area to write their own reviews of products which they purchase for their flight simulation pleasure. Is that product a peach or not? The system allows you to share your thoughts, your scoring and many other features relating to your review. We encourage you to visit the Member Review System and take a stroll through it. You can do so by clicking on CONTENT and the MEMBER REVIEWS from the Menu Tabs above. Also, if you do not see a product that you would like to review, you can request that we add it by telling us here.
