    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. http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/128300-rotterdam-the-hague-airport-professional/ 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.

    Calvi / P3Dv4 ?

    This sometimes works, but it's not guaranteed therefor and unsupported. Some products have been reported to run fine in P3D v4 while others got issues. Actually, I don't know if Calvi works in P3D v4 but you can always try.

    Prepar3D v4 or X-Plane 11?

    Since you already got P3D v4, I'd say stick with that. Switching to X-Plane you'd have to make a whole new start, buy all add-ons again, etc. It would cost a whole lot of money to basically get what you already got. Indeed P3D still has the old Microsoft ESP engine but it's hardly ever being used. Serious add-on aircraft like Aerosoft and PMDG come with their own navigation database, so it's a non-issue. And sloped runways may be a thing with a small aircraft on airfields high up in the mountains, but on the larger airports that see commercial traffic the runways are all nearly flat. That makes sloped runways a non-issue as well.

    Using airline liveries in games question

    Best is to contact each airline that you want to include by default and ask for their permission. Don't include anything without permission. Most airlines will probably be glad to give you permission if you ask for it, but can be really upset if you include it without asking.
  20. I'm thinking about updating my hardware as what I currently got is getting pretty outdated. I've let my eyes fall on the following parts: ASUS TUF X299 MARK 2, socket 2066 Intel® Core i7-7800X, 3,5 GHz (4,0 GHz Turbo Boost) socket 2066 Arctic Freezer 33 G.Skill Ripjaws V 32GB DDR4 3200MHz I currently got: ASUS P8H61 Pro, socket 1155 Intel® Core i7-2600, 3,4 GHz socket 1155 Default CPU cooler (came with the CPU) 8 GB DDR3 ram (some unknown brand) Any thoughts? For the moment my current hardware is still sufficient, but there are some pretty heavy add-ons coming up and I want to be prepared for them. Running P3D v4.2 with ORBX Global, Vector and OpenLandclass, PMDG 737NGX and a load of airport add-ons from Aerosoft and other vendors.
  21. True, but I'm also eyeing the Kingston KC1000 NVMe PCIe SSD, 480 GB. This requires a PCIe x4 slot which my current motherboard doesn't have. However I'm still in doubt about the SSD, therefor I didn't mention it before. Chances are I'll buy that later. One of the things that bothers me is that my current motherboard only supports up to 16 GB of ram memory and in the long run I doubt if this is going to be enough. I can replace my current 8 GB with new 16 GB, but if later I'm buying that new motherboard I'll have to replace it again. That would be a waste of money. It isn't exactly the most fancy gaming motherboard I have, it's rather plain and low-budget.

    OPS Center

    Not anymore. There used to be the Aerosoft Launcher, but today add-ons don't need it anymore. Of course each add-on (or at least most of them) comes with it's own configuration tool, but there's nothing that spans them all. Nothing like ORBX FTX Central which is one tool in which you can configure all of their add-ons. Aerosoft doesn't have that, it's a bit more scattered.

    AEROSOFT ELLX - P3D update planned?

    There's nothing that can be said about that. Aerosoft has over 200 projects that still aren't P3D v4 compatible and they all need to be checked. Sure Luxembourg is one of them, but 200 projects is a lot and some of them just won't be upgraded to P3D v4. However, in the meantime you can use JustSim Luxembourg. Maybe not as good as Aerosoft, but certainly not bad either.
