  1. The death of Flight Sim World

    Very regrettable about FSW. The license for MSFS will continue to be operated by DTG, it has sold over 850,000 copies of FSX in Steam format, and is still selling. DTG will wring every last penny out it. What they do with it after that is anybody's guess. The code for FSW will be locked away, they won't want another competitor to FSX while FSX is still alive. Let's not forget that FSX is quite a good sim, and for the new user, more than adequate.
  2. Simbrief Support

    This topic hasn't been raised in some time. To be quite frank - I would buy a NavDataPro annual account if you supported SimBrief. I like LIDO charts better than Jeppesen. But I can't consider it without. Simbrief is the best flight planner in my opinion, Derek Mayer is one of the nicest most helpful guys I have come across in Flight simming I am sure it would be very easy. Dudley
  3. Can Airbus update faster than Aerosoft?
  4. The stock reply to this some while back, was that there wasn't a sufficient market to consider this, has this changed since XP11? I note that you have much more scenery for X-Plane now. I have bought some of it.
  5. They want it all, and they want it now.
  6. I must say I fly X-Plane in preference to P3Dv4 at the moment - But I think the add-ons drive the sim though. And quality add-ons like the Aerosoft Airbuses will probably bring me back to P3Dv4 - there are nice aircraft for XP11, the FF A320 looks superb, but lacks the immersion. I love the 'Quick Look' feature in XP11, where you assign views to num pad keys. Somebody asked the same question sometime back, and I think that Mathijs responded that the architecture was very different and they didn't see the market as large enough, and there were already Airbuses available there. Things might be changing though.
  7. You didn't mention the video card, it looks like a MSI 1080. Being more of an X-plane user just now. I find that it doesn't push my processor very much, it is getting more GPU intensive ( I have a 1080TI, I have 4k monitor ). However that isn't maxed out either. I am waiting until further sim upgrades to arrive to know what to upgrade. I have a i7 4790 running at 4.6Ghz, which handles it all pretty well.
  8. I think there should be a prize for spotting that, I hadn't noticed it,.
  9. We have seen quite a few products that were only days away from release having to be put back because something has cropped up, only recently. I won't name names but I am sure we could get quite a long list going here. Aerosoft won't give a date until they are sure, and as we have seen, something can still crop up.
  10. There is already such a thing, which has been around a good many years now, but it still works. http://www.avsimrus.com/f/for-pilots-19/popular-calculator-to-calculate-takeoff-parameters-in-from-airbus-type-36340.html Freeware.
  11. True, I have flown Manchester to Agadir on an A330, only 4hrs or so.
  12. I must say - I am lookng forward to the A320 family update more than the A330 now, it does look really exciting. I am preparing for a few down votes as a result ;-)
