    Hi everyone, here's the deal. As far as I am aware the route following issue is sorted - it's currently undergoing testing and I'm working on more fixes/additions while the testers are at work. I already dumped my original plan to fix everything that came up and release one complete SP1. The fact that I spent 3 out of the last 4 weeks on business trips didn't leave me enough time to stick to my schedule. Working and testing on a notebook isn't very productive either to be honest. I will be back home next Thursday, the tests should be completed by then and will then work with Aerosoft to get a new installer built and released asap. However, the following week has two holidays in Germany (or at least in the state where Aerosoft is... I only have one ) so don't expect any miracles please.

    RTW80 Leg 8. Salalah to Bombay. OOSA-VABB. 2017-10-18 We fly to Bombay (renamed Mumbai in 1995 as a act of Maharastra symbolic politics). Mumbai, formerly Bombay, is big. It’s full of dreamers and hard-labourers, starlets and gangsters, stray dogs and exotic birds, artists and servants, fisherfolk and crorepatis (millionaires), and lots and lots of people. It has India’s most prolific film industry, some of Asia’s biggest slums (as well as the world’s most expensive home) and the largest tropical forest in an urban zone. Mumbai is India’s financial powerhouse, fashion epicentre and a pulse point of religious tension. (Lonely Planet) First, Goodbye to Arabia Absolutely clear morning over the Arabian Sea. A long flight over water gives time to enjoy some film. The Lockheed Constellation is a star of this 1953 promotional film for Eastern Air Lines: Flying with Arthur Godfrey. The fine production values make it an easy watch. The picture introduces the public to such things as the cockpit instruments and controls as well as navigation aids including ADF and ILS. No autopilot. At that time Eastern president, and legendary pilot, Eddie Rickenbacker was adamant that his captains fly hands-on. The narrator is Arthur Godfrey who was a wildly popular radio and television talk show star in the era and a genuine aviation enthusiast. He was a Naval Reserve pilot certified for jets, helicopters, and carrier landings. And he commuted to work from northern Virginia to New York in his own Navion. (In the film, Eastern's chief pilot Dick Miller looks uncomfortable. Perhaps he's not used to acting a role. Or perhaps he is not used to a young pilot bossing him around. In any case, Godfrey is happy to offer everyone a Chesterfield.) Hours later, as we approached the Indian coast, some ominous cloud formations took shape. In 1956, Bombay was already a world city. It achieved success under British rule, first under the East India Company and then the British Empire. Located on seven islands, the port city was linked together by a century-long effort of building connecting causeways that generated what is now a single landmass. The United States played a part in the city's success when its Civil War allowed Bombay to take its place as the world's predominant cotton port. And during the later nineteenth century, entrepreneurs from around India came here to develop a modern industrial and commercial center. The successes attracted migrants to Bombay who shaped a relatively open and multicultural urban scene. It became the huge, energetic, prosperous and overcrowded metropolis that it was in the mid-twentieth century – a population of 3 million squeezed into a relatively restricted geographic area. (Mumbai is much larger and more crowded now, of course, with 13 million inhabitants.) Here is a 1960 observation of Bombay after independence: Bombay owes most of its prosperity to the great waterway constituting the harbour. … There are few more scenic and impressive sights than the approach up this waterway studded with hilly islands, with a view of the stately buildings of the city, and to the right, the palm-fringed shore of the mainland rising gradually to the peaks of the Western Ghats in the distance. Bombay's position as the gateway of India, its fine natural harbour and the enterprise of its inhabitants, made it one of the first cities of the world. (J.H. Ge., Encyclopædia Britannica, 1964.) Any self-respecting member of the nineteenth century's Reform Club would have been proud of Bombay's rise on the dynamics of enterprise and free trade. Bombay seen through the swirling clouds Bombay was the destination of JRD Tata's first "airline" flight in 1932 when he piloted a single-engined DH.80A Puss Moth from Karachi to Bombay's Juhu aerodrome (which still exists just west of Santa Cruz and the modern airport). Tata was born to a wealthy family of Indian businessmen and, as a young adult, was brought back from Europe with the idea that he would head the family business. And he certainly succeeded, making Tata Sons an enormous multi-business family-held conglomerate. Tata (or as he was popularly known "JRD") instituted all sorts of reforms in Indian business practices, endowed research institutes, and won numerous awards for his 50 years of highly-respected leadership. From an aviation standpoint, Tata was a skilled airman and a visionary entrepreneur. He was India's first licensed pilot. And when he initiated Tata Air Services with that small mail delivery in 1932, he and his South African friend Nevill Vintcent set on a course to create India's first airline. After WWII, that airline became Air India which, under Tata's leadership, became the country's flagship international carrier. The first headquarters were at Juhu Aerodrome (a hut with a palm thatched roof) and eventually were relocated to a modern office tower in Bombay where it remained until 2013. (The national government took financial control of Air India in 1953 – although JRD Tata continued to run it for another 25 years. In more recent times, the airline has experienced the ups-and-downs common to the industry. In 2017, it is currently rumored that Tata Industries is considering purchasing the financially-challenged airline. Multiple levels of irony here.) The lights of Santa Cruz airport ahead. With 1.1sm visibility, this was always going to be an interesting landing. Juhu Aerodrome served as the city's main airport until 1948. At that time, commercial operations were moved to the larger RAF Santacruz, just a mile to the east. In the 1950s, Bombay Santa Cruz airport was one of the world's important air traffic centers, connecting directly with the west and through Calcutta to the east. Daily air services were maintained to and from almost all important cities within the country. All is well. Santa Cruz Rwy 09 crisp and clear. Thanks to the "modern" ILS. On the left are the new (nearly finished) terminal and tower through the haze. The active facilities on the right are not yet visible. When we arrived on our Pan Am ship, flight arrivals were handled through two converted RAF hangars (which are still in usage) while Air India International had its own small brick building tucked in a corner. This "Old Airport" area – on the south side of the 09/27 runway – now houses maintenance hangars and the General Aviation terminal. Safely shutting down at the (1950s) international arrivals terminal The new Santa Cruz passenger terminal was then under construction and commissioned in 1958. And in the 1980s, a modern international terminal was built at Sahar, across the runway to the northeast, and the terminal at Santa Cruz was converted to serve domestic flights. The airport has simultaneously had two names – Santa Cruz Airport and Sahar Airport – and some locals use the original names. In a cultural move, the airport was renamed Chattrapathi Shivaji International airport (CSIA) after the 17th century Maratha emperor. Among those entrepreneurs who made Bombay in the late nineteenth century was Jamsetji Tata who began his industrialist career with cotton during the 1860s. He built up what became the Tata Group (see JRD above) which is now India's biggest conglomerate. Among this accomplishments was the 1903 inauguration of the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel on Bombay's waterfront near the Gateway to India. (The common legend has it that Tata built the grand hotel in response to being refused entry to Watson's Esplanade Hotel due to its whites only policy. Perhaps apocryphal.) The elegant "Taj" was Pan Am's preferred hotel during our "classic" era. If city tourism is not in the cards, you might be interested in seeing a local movie. Not to worry that it is in Hindi. The period after independence (late 1940s and 1950s) is now seen as the "Golden Age" of Hindi film. Perhaps the most famous is Mother India (1957), the story of a village mother holding her family together in the face of adversity. (The theme was seen to represent the strength of traditional India as it faced modernity and, perhaps, the role of women in contemporary society.) The film remains one of the most successful of all time. On another track, a number of acclaimed films explored the nature of modern urban life – often taking an ambivalent stand. On that theme, you might enjoy a song from Pyaasa (1957) which, underrated at the time, has since been recognized as a "top 100" in international film history. The quintessential, and commercially popular, Bollywood combination of action, comedy, romance, melodrama and musical took off in the 1980s and has evolved different forms over the years – sometimes emphasizing crime and violence, other times the tensions in contemporary social relations, and other times romance and melodrama. All this with plenty of song and dance. (Traditionally, the actors are often good dancers but not especially good singers. The "playback" singer is typically listed in the opening credits and the soundtrack of often released before the film – as a separate and profitable entity. An entertaining example of this common practice is in this romantic song and dance piece from the 2000 blockbuster Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai.) Overall, the film industry in Mumbai has become a major player in global cinema. In recent years, Bollywood has competed with Hollywood at the international box office – in terms of customers if not revenue.

    Leg#11 Bombay-Calcutta Early morning departure from the foggy Bombay, facing East India to Calcutta. An easy FL150 flight just to descend in a foggy (default) Calcutta. "This mist appears to come after us, it makes difficult every approach" "It should be obviously in real life, sir, but let me remember you we are in a virtual world and it is the uncertainty that charms us; mist makes things wonderful" (O. Wilde) "And the new videocard maybe too".

    Flugstrecke Aden OYAA - Mascat OOMS, 993 nm, ganze 5:17 h Ich bin in Aden total versackt, mit einigen Einheimischen hier. Aber Du musst in Aden ganz schön auf der Hut sein. Die Luft ist sehr bleihaltig momentan. Konnte erst heute los fliegen. Deshalb habe ich meinen ursprünglich geplanten Zwischenstopp in Salala OOSA gecancelt und bin wegen der langen Strecke dann auf meine DC6 umgestiegen. Bin ja auch ziemlich im Rückstand auf dieser Etappe. Ich dachte erst, nach Mascat ist mal eben nur um die Ecke. Aber ich habe über 5 Stunden dafür gebraucht. Mittags bin ich das erste mal schon los geflogen, musste nach 60 nm wieder zurück, weil ich meine Werkzeugkiste fürs Gröbste vergessen hatte... Bis ich dann eine neue Fluggenehmigung hatte, war es dann auch schon Abend.... Habe unterwegs noch einen Sandsturm erlebt, das ist nicht gut für meine Kolbenmotoren. Musste den Sturm regelrecht umfliegen. Jetzt werde ich am roten Meer erst mal einen Tag Pause machen, bevor ich nach Mumbai aufbreche. Da werde ich wohl wieder meine DC6 nehmen. Nach anfänglichen Umstellungsproblemen habe ich die Maschine relativ gut im Griff.

    You´re right. There´s lot more autogen than those visible on your screenshots. Our official screens are made with autogen set to max and show how it should look. But unfortunatly I don´t have any good idea what causes your missing autogen with all sliders set to max (really?) Long time ago in FSX we had problems with "Streetlight" Add ons using legacy objects which prevented the display of autogen buildings. The only tip I have right now is to check if Barcelona is above all ORBX stuff or if the amount of autogen objects per cell is limited in your cfg.

    First of all, I have to excuse myself. I'm going for a holiday next week, so I would miss Mumbai - Colcatta leg. I've decided to complete it before my trip. Today one of the shortests legs: VABB, Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, India to VANP, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport, India. Route is as follows: Ready for the flight, we will have some departing traffic in front of us. 2x A320 IndiGo Airlines. Weather again not nice. And already a few moments later ground dissapeard in fog. And saying goodbye to Mumbai! I'm loving this aircraft sooo much, it's preety awesome! Again low visibilty ILS approach after wonderful(was really well done in my oopinion) ARC DME procedure. On the ground, we're going tomorrow to Lukla Airport to see Mount Everest! VABB - VANP.kmz

    My last destination before Mumbai was Karachi, Pakistan. I think - hopefully - this was the last leg with so much sand below me nice color but so boring. I flew on FL400 because this was a longer leg, my longest so far with almost 700 nm. The route: OMDB SID MAXMO A419 SHJ A791 LOTAT STAR OPKC Leaving Dubai, some skyscrapers in the background Mountains or sand dunes near the Gulf of Oman The number of the flags is constantly growing Low cloud base at Karachi while on downwind leg Visibility was OK once under the clouds. Some discrepancy between the PAPI (too high) and the ILS (too low) though. View from the terminal in Karachi

    Diary Entry # 38: Salalah to Muscat, Finally Lambert suddenly leaped into action. He kicked Svetlana's pistol to the back of the An-2. He then whipped out a pair of handcuffs & handcuffed her to Boris. "Mrs Lambert gave these to me for Xmas, not sure why!", he muttered under his breath. Then he paused and looked out at the weather. "We are losing time. Must move on!", Lambert declared. He fired up Babushka & trundled out onto the runway. "Muscat!", he declared, "straight line across Yemen!" And in 10 minutes from Roger's unmasking of Svetlana, they were on their way. It was later in the day than Lambert would have liked. Once in the air, Lambert turned to all of them & declared, "I'm Lambert, James Lambert of MI5.5. I want a quiet trip. We'll sort this out in Muscat!" Roger was mortified. Svetlana highly p-d off & Manwell totally confused. Lambert flew Babushka with intense resolve. Barreling along over Yemen at 108 KIAS. They arrived at Muscat after dusk & Lambert locked the others in the aircraft & left for a terminal in great haste. "Security!", he called to them as he fled across the tarmac. Leaving Salalah, flying over crops & greenery Heading into the Yemeni dusk A dusk fly by Night approach at Muscat Touchdown To be continued Windswept

    And that "maybe" is currently the only answer given when it comes to a release date. After that first post more information has been already given, e.g. that the buses are now available to the core beta tester team. From that you can derive that things are progressing.

    RTW80 Leg 7. Aden to Salalah. OYAA-OOSA. 2017-10-14 We are switching aircraft for this "East of Aden" portion of the journey. By the mid-1950s, Pan American's Around the World Service had replaced the older Lockheed L-049 "Constellation" with the Douglas DC-6B "Super Six". The Constellations were moved to the profitable South American routes. Today, we are calling back to the RTW service the Clipper Undaunted to honor its stablemate Clipper America, the original L-049 that initiated the route in 1947. For those interested in the aircraft's history, here (or identically here) is the wonderful ABC Great Planes documentary on the Lockheed Constellation. Well worth a look. Departure from Aden showing Crater, Ma'alla harbor, Steamer Point, and Little Aden. Betty reported that among the passengers is a kid named Conway Twitty singing "It's Only Make Believe." How did he know that this is P3Dv4? Cruising over the desert sand This was a fairly routine flight. The only excitement, much appreciated by the passengers, occurred on our getting the new First Officer Rick Sperry familiarized with his duties. The lush green coastline of Oman Oman's Dhofar coast is exposed to the South West monsoon from mid-June to mid-September. The monsoon is locally known as the Khareef. The Dhofar Mountains that run parallel to the coast both attract and contain the khareef. When the moisture condenses as thick fogs over the hills the result is a verdant paradise. The water supports an annual resurgence of herbs, grasses, and trees that lasts through the late summer season (and for some time afterwards) until the vegetation loses its moisture. The population, especially in urban areas such as Salalah, depends on the khareef for their water supply. Turning point at the 4,000ft high cliffs before Salalah At least since the 1950s, an annual Khareef Festival is held in Salalah to celebrate the monsoon and to attract tourists. This effort has been successful, as this sort of wet green environment is highly unusual in the Gulf region. The fog cools temperatures considerably and provides a respite from the relentless heat. This celebratory film makes so much of the thick white fog and lush green vegetation that even our English gentleman traveler can appreciate how different the world looks for those who live on the Gulf. Though, whimsically, he uttered something poetic about "Eden" and "this sceptered isle." Downwind over Salalah The Salalah plain is surprisingly well-cultivated with traditional farms employing a sophisticated irrigation system. It relies on the khareef to sustain the water table, but hydrogeological studies suggest the quantity of groundwater will not be sufficient to maintain agriculture for much longer into the future. Nevertheless, this fragile cyclic climate contrasts with the arid Empty Quarter – the vast sand sea that extends out over a third of the Arabian peninsula. The desert starts just beyond the green Dhofar hills to the north. Historically, Dhofar's most famous product was frankincense, an aromatic resin hardened from the sap of the frankincense tree. This was the mainstay of the regions' wealth for thousands of years. From Rome to Egypt to India to China, frankincense was widely used for both daily and ceremonial purposes. It was (and is) used to greet and say farewell to guests and at weddings and funerals and feasts. Right through the Middle Ages, frankincense was prized as gold and made the rulers of Dhofar wealthy men. (Now it is more of a specialized product.) Flaps down for finals into Salalah When we arrived on our mid-1950s Pan American flight, Oman was in the midst of a old fashioned power struggle. Governance was split between the Sultan of Muscat, Said Bin Taimur, and the Imam of Oman, Ghalib Al Hinai. The precipitating issue was oil. Said ruled in a feudal style and had outlawed almost all technological development. The Iman controlled the inner tribal lands. Between 1955 and 1957, the Sultan moved troops to take control of the internal oil discoveries but took heavy casualties. Only with the aid of British Army armored columns and RAF aircraft were his forces able to prevail. (Ghalib withdrew to the seemingly impregnable mountain fortress in Jebel Akhdar but was eventually defeated through a daring nighttime surprise attack by the Special Air Service.) Later, during the late-1960s, the Dhofar Rebellion (a Yemeni- and Chinese-supported Marxist force) achieved military control over the Dhofar Mountains above Salalah and the coastal plain. The old Sultan Said seemed ready to capitulate when he was deposed in a bloodless coup by his son Qaboos bin Said. Starting in 1970, Qaboos expanded the armed forces, modernized the state's administration and introduced expansive social reforms. The rebellion was finally defeated in 1975 with the military help of Iran, Jordan, Pakistan and Britain's RAF and Special Air Service. Sultan Qaboos opened up the country, pursued vigorous economic reforms, and modernized the social order with a serious commitment to health, education, and welfare. While dependent on oil revenues, Oman's economy has become relatively diversified when compared to other states in the region. The number of hospitals rose from one to ninety. And the educational system made real progress: before 1970 only three formal schools existed; today there are over 1,000 state schools and 650,000 students. Qaboos established a modestly powerful Constituent Assembly and eventually all Omani over the age of 21 were given the right to vote. While Sultan Qaboos has been a wildly successful monarch by Middle East standards, he has not opened the country to a Western-style competitive democracy…and given the incendiary political and ideological and religious conflicts in the region he is not strongly incentivized to do so. Betty confidently surveys the tarmac as we are ready to deplane The airport was RAF Salalah when we visited in the 1950s. This was a relatively small facility with a scattering of single-story buildings and a squat two-story tower. (For home videos of life and operations at RAF Salalah in 1962, go here.) The civilian version opened in 1977 and is now Oman's second airport. The newly built expansion (2015) locates the new tower and modern terminal on the north side of the runway and hosts international connections to the Gulf and to India. The heaviest international traffic carries tourists during Khareef season. If you care to follow the Duenna-recorded flight track, look here.

    RTW80 Leg 6. Port Jeddah to Aden. OEJN-OYAA. 2017-10-12 Routine departure from Jeddah and a flight along the coast over rugged Yemen to the (in the 1950s) Royal Air Force base Khormaksar in the crown colony of Aden. Climbing out over Jeddah's expanding urban area. Beautiful blue sea, blue skies, and a sandy edge to the mix. The flight along the Red Sea coastline was largely uneventful. A slight quartering headwind was an irritant but everything was just fine. The rugged desert mountains of North Yemen Yemen has a two thousand year history of rebellion. The mountains have fostered independence and resistance against all sorts of authority – including the Roman, Ottoman, and British empires. The people are fractionated by geography and religion and ethnicity and have not yet developed an enduring sense of collective identity. And the vast expanse of difficult mountain terrain has made it practically impossible for rulers to exercise power over the entire country. In the green western highlands, the market city of Ibb These western highlands catch rainfall from the sea and allow a relatively successful agriculture on the terraced mountainsides. Historically, the region is known for its coffee (Coffea arabica). During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, highlands coffee was exported through the Red Sea port Mocha to the intense demand of European and Asian traders. The name "Mocha" became synonymous with "coffee" and the region prospered. Coffee plants from Mocha (high acidity) were taken to Java and blended with the local variety (naturally rounded) to produce the popular Mocha Java. While other nations have since come to dominate the globe's coffee production, Yemen's "Arabian" coffee remains among the finest in the world. The traditional flowering plant qat (khat) is a major part of the economy. In Yemen, as in other parts of the Red Sea and Horn of Africa region, chewing qat is just part of traditional social life. It produces a mild state of euphoria and stimulation and it reduces the appetite. (In this respect, It may be comparable to very strong coffee or to amphetamines.) Today, about 40 percent of the available water in Yemen is dedicated to this highly profitable crop – though of course the water used here does little to quench the thirst or feed the hunger of Yemen's people. This is all the more important because Yemen is losing its water. The typical Yemeni has access to 140 cubic meters of water per year (for all uses) where the internationally defined threshold for water stress is 1700 cubic meters per year. Yemen depends on its groundwater but the water tables have dropped severely leaving much of the country facing a prospect of losing access to water in the near future. There is a real threat that Sana'a may become the modern world's first capital to die for lack of water. This environmental disaster has become a human tragedy because the ongoing civil war makes it impossible for any government to coordinate a solution. And in many rural areas, the water shortage itself is a cause of armed conflict. With Taiz below, time to initiate the descent We turn our gaze southward. The city of Aden has had a long history as a trading port. From the twelfth century it prospered at the crossroads of shipping between India, the Arabian peninsula, Egypt and East Africa. (Even the Chinese, in the 1420s, sent a fleet of treasure ships to establish relations with Aden.) However, Aden had declined to a population of 600 when, in 1839, the British East India company sent Royal Marines to take possession of the island as a base against piracy. In 1850, Aden was declared a free port with the liquor, salt, arms, and opium trades flourishing. And it won the coffee traffic from Mocha. For the British Empire, Aden became strategically prominent as a link between the Suez Canal, India, and British East Africa. The harbor of Crater (the original port city of Aden) had silted over and the function was moved to the newer harbor Ma'alla on the western side of the peninsula. With the opening of the Suez Canal and the rise of the steamship, Aden became crucial as a coaling station to supply coal and water for the ships' boilers. "Steamer Point" at the far western end of the peninsula was established for just this purpose. For nearly a century, Aden was one of the busiest ship-bunkering, duty-free shopping, and trading ports in the world. After World War II, the British developed the port at Ma'alla and started a construction campaign to introduce modern design to the city. And in the 1950s British Petroleum built its refinery and oil tanker facilities in Little Aden across the harbor from the main isthmus. Aden was the world's second busiest port, after New York. However, all this mattered little as the rising forces of Arab nationalism produced a series of successful revolts that led the British to grant independence and depart. [This was part of a world-wide tide of decolonization – when the sun finally set on the British and French empires.) Late afternoon light frames the turn to finals After the British left in 1967, the southern Yemeni formed the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen. The new state engaged in a rivalry, and some combat, with North Yemen – until the two merged as the Republic of Yemen in 1990. Since that time, in a twisted tale of personalities, regional rivalries, sectarian division, international intervention, and Islamic nationalism, Yemen has suffered a series of political crises and a long civil war. As of this writing, affairs are in flux with the Saudi-supported southerners, based in Aden, fighting the Iran-supported northerners, based in Sana'a, and Al Qaeda forces operating in between. But things are not that simple. Aden's Jebel Shamsan volcano and Ma'alla harbor decorate the approach to Khormaksar RAF Khormaksar was first established in 1917 and enlarged after World War II. When in 1958 nearby rebel forces threatened Aden, the RAF moved combat squadrons to Kormaksar, which became decidedly operational, in order to provide support for the British Army. The sharp end of the spear was carried by squadrons of Hawker Hunters. By the end of 1967, the new London government had decided to withdraw from Aden and the station was closed. This airfield is now Aden International Airport. A charming little personal story. A mutual friend told of his RAF deployment to Khormaksar as a very young man. Coming from England, he was stunned by the heat – getting off the aircraft was as walking into an oven. He was disappointed to be barracked in the "normal" quarters which were stifling in the constant heat. As did others, he immediately put in for the limited air conditioned accommodations and, some time later, won the lottery. He eagerly embraced the cool air … but discovered that his body was having to adjust every day as he transitioned from the air conditioned evenings to the heat of his professional duties and then back again. After a while, he couldn't stand it any longer and requested a transfer to the normal barracks. If you care to follow the Duenna-recorded flight track, look here.

    I'm still utterly dumbfounded as to how this product was deemed fit for release, I've never seen such backlash from the customers for an addon and even worse such denial and head burying from the devs. The thing was pretty much unusable at launch and to this day the LNAV issue is still on going.
