    carenado saab 340 usa lveries

    Seems like the United Express livery doesn't exist yet, however a good number of other liveries like American Eagle and Delta Connection can be found on Avsim. I guess it's only a matter of time before somebody does United Express.
  2. I also got the feeling that some developers don't take system demands into consideration when they're developing a product. They just want to make it look as good as possible, which is understandable. But what good does that do if 90 percent of all computers don't meet the demands for their product? If the developers could lower the quality of their products just a little bit, for some people this would make the difference between being able to run it and not being able to run it.
  3. Well the competition certainly isn't holding back. Digital Design has released their Tenerife South scenery recently and as a result of that MK Studios is running a sale on their version, 30 percent off. It seems like everybody is fighting for the customers, that's what you get when you're all fishing in the same pond. I'm concerned that by the time the SimWings version will be released there'll be nobody left to sell it to. By then everybody will already have a competing product.

    Daytona P3D?

    I guess so, but can't say for sure. Daytona Beach was done by Jo Erlend Sund and he made most of his other products P3D v4 compatible. Sometimes it can be a bit annoying to see a product being updated to X-Plane but not to P3D v4. Personally X-Plane doesn't bother me. As soon as I see X-Plane I've seen enough, it's not for me. But that's just my personal opinion, I can imagine other people think different.

    P3D V4 upgraded airports timescale?

    You can do it with the installer, no third party tool is needed.

    P3D V4 upgraded airports timescale?

    Out of those, only Rotterdam is currently in progress. The rest is unknown. Maybe they will be done, maybe they won't. It's impossible to say. However, for Corfu and Munich there are alternatives. FlyTampa Corfu works in P3D v4 and eventhough the installer isn't compatible (you should point to the P3D v4 folder manually when installing) and it's not P3D v4 native it is supported by FlyTampa. Taxi2Gate has made a P3D v4 version of their Munich scenery.

    But as said before, not P3D v4 compatible.

    Krakow is a Drzewiecki Design product, however it's not yet P3D v4 compatible. However no doubt it will be made compatible in time just like they did with most of their other products.

    Just (a big) suggestion

    I agree that FSW doesn't have a future since P3D is already the better platform. It could however be an idea if Aerosoft would buy the eula, but not the FSW product itself. Since FSW and P3D are ultimately based on the same product (FSX) it could be possible to distribute P3D for the entertainment branch on that eula if Lockheed Martin agrees with it.
  10. Sounds like more or less the same as what I got, as if the amount of video memory makes no difference at all.
  11. Actually I have ORBX TrueEarth HD Netherlands installed and so far I'm not disappointed. Yesterday I took the PMDG 737NGX up for a test flight from Amsterdam (FlyTampa) to Maastricht (Aerosoft) and it works great. FPS are good, no problems at all.

    Perhaps you can do the Auster J1 Autocrat. It was one of the most popular British GA aircraft right after the second world war and many years after. In fact, a few of them are still in use today. Those who read Biggles (and what aviation enthousiast has never heard of Biggles?) no doubt know this aircraft. There's a pretty good version of it for FSX by Dave Garwood, but it's not P3D v4 compatible. Would be great if Aerosoft could make a P3D v4 version of it.
  13. Well, if this is the bare minimum then I'm curious what there is to gain with more vram. It certainly doesn't feel like the bare minimum, it feels like a lot more. I'm running P3D v4 at reasonably high settings with a good number of add-ons (ORBX Global/Vector/OpenLC, Rex SkyForce 3D, PMDG 737NGX, a good number of quality add-on airports (Aerosoft, FlyTampa, etc) and it's all running pretty smooth. FPS are good, it's all loading fast, etc.
  14. 8 GB of video memory is a lot and I think most people can't afford to buy a video card with that much memory. Even 6 GB isn't much better. I got a pretty good graphics card myself (Nvidia GeForce GTX 960), but it's only got 2 GB GDDR5 memory. I think that's about the average graphics card a simmer has these days, some people even got less. Those people will be disappointed because the add-on comes with far too high demands for them. Either they don't buy the add-on because they don't have the hardware for it, or they buy it and then complain it doesn't work as it should. I know it sounds unnatural, but maybe it's an idea for a developer like this one to lower the quality of the product a bit so that it runs on lower hardware and therefor more people can enjoy it. I'd rather have an add-on of lower quality that works than one of higher quality that doesn't work. For me, upgrading my graphics card isn't an option yet for financial reasons and certainly not to one that is as expensive as this add-on requires. Why should I if it's good enough for everything else? Maybe in a few years I'll buy a new one and I'll be able to enjoy this add-on, but as it is now, sorry, the high graphics demands are reason to not buy it.
