  1. Köln/Bonn airport preview

    Holy crap, Jo. Nice!
  2. Oh Dave, what a Freudian slip. I can't blame you, though. I have a feeling we both made similar mods to the A320 series' views. Why snap, pan and xyz adjust were disabled, I have no idea. And F9 should return to Virtual Cockpit and nothing else, IMO. But that's what's great about CFG... modify and thou shall be rewardest.
  3. It's available now for about €250 million.
  4. When I saw the comment previews in the main forum, the references to blue pills had me thinking this thread took an entirely new direction... turns out not the same blue pills.
  5. Repaints and intellectual property ( IP )

    This is an interesting topic for at least one reason: we understand why people pirate payware but, regarding freeware and paints, is it really too much to ask for someone to get permission from the original author to modify or goof around with something? It costs nothing to send a simply email (and takes several seconds) to ask permission from somebody. I wonder what the reservation is?
  6. The other distinction that I think is important to make is that every modern commercial airliner is a complete piece of crap... but only from the typical perspective of a poor soul flying in economy (lots of us). It's why the CRJ thread sometimes has people denigrating it so bad... because many of us have only had experience with a particular aircraft while crammed in the back of economy next to the head, seated in between two fat sweaty clowns that just ran across the entire terminal trying to catch their connection to Las Vegas. Cramped seating, awful food if you even get served, rude security and airline personnel (but that pale in comparison to the numbers of the rude, entitled, flying public), etc don't take away from the accomplishments of Boeing, Airbus, Embraer, et. al., having engineered a marvelous, tech-filled tube that jets us across the sky to anywhere in the world in hours, not days, weeks, months, or even years as was the case only a 150 years ago (while half of your family died of dysentery in the back of a covered wagon). It is hard to separate that type of experience, which is mostly an interaction with the airline and not the manufacturer and its thousands of subcontractors. So sure, laymen would wonder why we'd want to simulate flying one of these machines when it's understandably hard to parse the magic of modern commercial aviation from a typical consumer's experience.
  7. I hope you're kidding. If not, you need to adjust your monitor. The rework looks drastically better.
  8. Ok but understand that people all over the flightsim universe claim to be real world pilots with various type ratings just so they can scheme their way onto a beta team. Apologies if I'm wrong, but the forum handle "realworldcrjpilot" just smells that way. And, speaking of beta teams, why post such a question in a preview forum and not simply message or email the project team, attaching your credentials to show that you're actually a CRJ pilot, asking to be on the beta if indeed they still need testers? Aerosoft is nothing if not transparent and accessible. And while I appreciate your down-vote, my original response wasn't sarcasm but about as factual, straightforward and pragmatic as anyone here could have been. Down-voting such perspectives is pretty bizarre behavior.
  9. Yeah, when it comes out.
  10. FSX Bonaire photo real scenery

    I recall this issue being addressed directly: the photoreal for the entire island was prohibitively expensive. I haven't tried but if you use X-Plane, try OrthoXP and see if free ortho (try Bing) does the trick...
  11. It's been a while since I flew the Aerosoft busses but I thought they already did this. When you save a flight, the Airbus saved both its panel and FMC states and would pick up right where it left off, a la the PMDG panel serialization. The only thing I recall with the Airbus being different is that you had to move the throttles back to the proper detent but that was it...

  13. Jo, was this fixed in the latest update? I haven't had time to check (I wiped P3D due to the hotfix)... Thanks again.
  14. The subject of dynamic lighting and performance is maybe one of the few times I'll agree with Virtuali: as he showed in a test, it turns out that the SDK that was used to compile ground/scenery has little to do with the [extreme] performance impact of dynamic lighting. His test coincides with my experience as well. And people need to stop looking at FPS and instead look at GPU usage, which is a much more objective indicator. Those that don't see any FPS drop simply aren't close to the top of their GPU usage... but their usage is spiking when dynamic lighting is on, all the same (they may just not know it). Use something like MSI Afterburner and you'll see the usage jump even at the [awesome] KMSP which was just released (and supposedly compiled with the P3Dv4 SDK). Surely the CRJ will get plenty of ramp time there when its released. It's undoubtedly cool that the CRJ will include dynamic lighting features but like Dave, I'll have to keep it off. Even my GTX1080Ti can't handle it, considering the admittedly modest AA settings I need to use to keep P3D from looking like a series of stair steps. Our other aircraft developer friend, who arguably started this whole discussion of SDK vs. dynamic lighting, I'm afraid stands to be corrected.
