  2. One of the parts of this product we have not yet shown is the documentation. Next to the standard PDF manuals (six of those), there is a new interactive manual that makes is a lot easier to get to know the aircraft. You can run this on any tablet, laptop or computer as it is a web based system. As far as we know this has not been done before. It has two major parts, one to explain the cockpit and one that uses the standard flows to guide you through a whole flight. At any point can you click deeper to get information on a system. Best to explain this with a very quick and dirty video of the current early beta version. In the weeks to come we will show you more details of this system. Pause the video to read stuff.

  3. You're way off-topic right now, and the asshole attitude isn’t necessarily welcome by most people, as much as I hate calling people out directly on public forums. I’m not sure what your end-goal is here by trying to criticize existing Aerosoft customers who hold Aerosoft to the same standard that they hold Justflight, SWS, PMDG, etc. to. Sure the CRJ was a novelty to MSFS when it first came out, and it was riddled with issues when it first came out (and Sim Updates have further exacerbated the issue), but now that there are other airliners on the market, all of which have had their cycle of bugs and improvements and continuous Quality-Of-Life features being added throughout the course of their development cycles, the CRJ seems to be less and less appealing. Not because it’s boring, but because it’s the same bugs every time and not much of an improvement overall to the product other than the bare minimum “catch up”. So yes, consumers can feel justified in feeling that they enjoyed the CRJ when it first came out and it has lost its appeal since then. And those same people are touting the threat of “I’m only buying your upcoming A330 if you can prove you can support your existing CRJ and Twin Otter product lines” I’m not sure why you in particular (yes, you, @Crabby) spend your free time defending Aerosoft, but it seems like the strangest relationship for a customer to be a die-hard defendant of their supplier, rather than trying to hold their supplier accountable for the product they deliver. I’d almost think you were an Aerosoft shareholder, considering how much effort you put into bemoaning customers and giving them justification to not give you anything better than what you have.

  6. You are correct, BUT if you want the customers to come back next time for your next product you also need to show a good product with good updates. If that is not happening your business will be out of work and someone else will fill that gap pretty fast. I used to love the CRJ. Now there is plenty of good airliners out there. And if Aerosoft want to keep me as a customer for the next aircraft they release, then they have to show they can keep their products up to date.

  9. Not 100% sure what you are asking for. Progress is good, we skipped a few deadlines (software urghhh) but have made some changes that will speed up development. Other then that I think I show and discuss a lot of what is going on.

  10. Maybe instead of cheeky comments to your customers, you spend just a bit more time focused on fixing the multiple issues still present in your product(s). So, another week has gone by and I'll ask yet again - do you have any progress to report on the next update for the CRJ?

  12. No clue, I have never started a RL flight that way. You always know the runway for departure, and if you know it, why would you not put it in? There is a slight chance that SOPs might make a difference, but I don't think they really do. Anyway, for us, it is always the full plan, whether it is a 20 minute flight or a 3 hour flight. We have many tools at our disposal with all the weather information, so we can make a solid guesstimate of which runway will be in use and which arrival to expect based on the flightplan. In my opinion, there is no reason to leave it blank 'because the weather and runway in use might change'. If that happens, you change it as soon as you have updated weather/airport information. And if you put in all the data at the start of the flight you will generally get more accurate time and fuel predictions.

  13. Very well put Amahran. Unfortunately, in the time I've been on this forum, I've seen the toxicity spread from that guy to many of the Aerosoft reps on this forum. Cheap shots when customer ask about updates, slagging their competitors to deflect questions about issues with their product, etc, etc. Pretty sad but hey, on the bright side - Another week has gone by, so I assume we are that much closer to getting the next update. Mathias - what do you have for news on this?

  15. Moin, da meine Heimat ja im Norden ist (Hamburg - Ostsee - Nordsee) habe ich mir nun unser Addon Helgoland für XP11 im XP12 installiert. Die Ostfriesischen Inseln sind ja schon installiert. Siehe meinen Beitrag hier "...von Hartenholm nach Wangerooge...". Ich fliege heute (18.09.2022) in Realzeit und bei Real Wetter von St. Peter Ording nach Helgoland. Die Uhrzeit könnt ihr im Cockpit ganz links oben ablesen St. Peter Ording (Freeware) findet ihr hier. Installiert: X-Plane 12 v12.00b3 standard Landschaft, St. Peter Ording v2.00, Helgoland, SAM3 Base Plugin (keine weiteren SAM Erweiterungen). St. Peter Ording - los gehts... Helgoland in Sicht Ich möchte auf der 33 landen... Es herrscht starker Seitenwind... Die Aufnahme habe ich mit einer Drohne gemacht Gruß heinz

  17. Finally I am able to show you a part of this project that we feel is very much the core. The actual constructions and other areas where work is being done. See, there are thousands of construction workers building things. Windfarms (did you know that The Netherlands, UK, Belgium, Denmark and Germany will have 80%+ of their electricity demand met by wind in 2040?), oil rig, pipelines, electrical cables, gas production platforms, drilling rigs, security services, surveying.... It is the biggest industry park in the world. And that is what we are trying to show with this project.

  18. Danke schön für Deinen Respekt und Anerkennung. Ja, ich mache das alles in meiner Freizeit und das nun seit über 10 Jahren, in Summe sind es wohl mehrere Tausend Stunden. Und es stimmt, für mich mache ich es schon lange nimmer, mir hätte schon eine der früheren Versionen für Europa völlig gereicht, doch dann denke ich, und jetzt noch die anderen Kontinente, und noch diese Verbesserungen und noch dies und das reinmachen und dann ist es perfekt und ich kann es abschließen. Doch es gibt da immer noch ein neues "dies und das", wie im aktuellen Fall, dass mit den neuen footprints nun UK, Irland, Belgien etc. und sogar Deutschland verbessert werden und dass ich für XP12 die neue Vegetation nehme.

  19. Mit den kleineren Bereichen ist alles gut durchgelaufen trotz meiner mickrigen 64 GB. 😇 Jetzt geht es ans Zusammenfügen der Daten, Erzeugen des footprint-Layers und wenn das und die anschließenden Tests erfolgreich sind, dürfte ich die neue X-Europe 5.10 (und X-WORLD Europe) am Wochenende fertig bekommen.

  20. Some more images of the crew boat. This is a drivable object (like an aircraft). While it has an interior (duh) is is designed to be used only in external view because that simply makes a lot more sense and is far more fun. I also think we'll add add the Heliport Maasvlakte (EHTP) because it is not located at an airport so probably will not be covered by another scenery designer.

  24. Dies ist bereits aus der X-WORLD-Reihe erhältlich: X-WORLD Vegetation Library Nun ist es soweit, wir dürfen Vorschaubilder für X-Plane 12 zeigen! Für die neue Version unseres geliebten Sims habe ich den Namen geändert um Verwechslungen zur XP11-Version zu vermeiden, aus "X-EUROPE" wird "X-WORLD Europe" und entsprechend für alle anderen Kontinente. X-Plane 12 macht automatisch Schnee in die X-WORLD falls das Wetter so ist: Und die neue Vegetation ist bei X-WORLD natürlich auch drin, es wird deshalb eine neue X-WORLD Vegetation Library geben. Hier die vier Jahreszeiten: Es dürfte nicht mehr lange dauern bis X-Plane 12 beta offiziell zu erwerben ist und ihr selbst testen könnt. Die Wetter- und Wolkeneffekte sind klasse, Regenpfützen die bei Sonne sich auflösen, Schnee der wegtaut wenn es wärmer wird, die neuen Wellen, Spiegelungen und und... 😃 Leider kann ich vermutlich nicht X-WORLD wie gedacht gleich mit veröffentlichen, ich erstelle eben noch ein Vollupdate für alle Kontinente, das dauert und ich will nicht eine Version bringen und zwei Wochen später wieder eine neue. Doch ihr könnt ja entweder X-Europe nutzen, das funktioniert nach wie vor, ist halt ohne die neue Vegetation oder ihr probiert die Standard Globale Szenerie aus, dann wisst ihr die X-WORLD um so mehr zu schätzen (meine persönliche Meinung).

  26. This is the kind of professional response that customers want to hear. Thank you Matthijs. It’s frustrating being given snarky one-line answers, so I appreciate the thought you put into this post. It’s consideration and signs of customer mindedness that we want to observe, not “shut the hell up” that I often unfortunately being touted on this forum. One spurs conversation and understanding, and the other is simply confrontational and serves to do nothing but sour an already-toxic community where everyone is attacking everyone else.

  27. As our EFB was included from the start in the CRJ over year ago? Mind if I be honest? After you release a product you have to deal with updates (service packs, quick fixes, what ever you call them). These are commercially of no interest because the vast majority of users will not notice the bugs and they do not affect sales a lot. Sure there are forum topics, YT vids (though I rarely see any that mentions the issues), reviews but these simply do not affect sales. They matter for our own customers, as they spend time reading before buying, but on the Marketplace or on our 14 external shops, not so much. Yet updating our products is important to us. Aerosoft does a lot of updates. In total our Airbus's had 114 updates, the CRJ's 23, the Twin Otter 19. Some big with new features, some small with only a small fix here and there. But the idea that we do not update products is simply incorrect. The fact is that sometimes we are unable to update (for example because the team is working on something else, because we do not know how to sort something out or because we are waiting for a sim update). And we are not always able or allowed to explain why we do not update. It could be we know about a change in the sim or a major new version of the product that will come and that makes a change in the product right now a bad decision. And we would not be able to share that. So, there is often logic behind the chaos. Aerosoft is a pretty big company. I might make decisions on updates, but when I mess up, there is somebody who looks at spreadsheets and reminds me that we need to make money to do updates and to release new products. There is a marketing department that tells me they need info on updates a few weeks before release. The sales department needs me to get them info so they can talk to the our sister stores and Microsoft Marketplace. There is a support department that needs to be trained on the product.

  30. In my experience in Europe, not that common. Some larger airports like Frankfurt or Charles-de-Gaulle will sometimes ask if you can accept a late change. It will often then be a visual side step to a parallel runway. If you have the time to have a quick look at any changes that may bring, like missed approach procedures etc, it is usually fine. Often it is also anticipated and briefed already (eg. "in case of side step, we do this this this). I do not think I have ever had it asked of me below roughly 1700ft. I find that in Europe, runway changes seem to be mostly planned ahead quite well. So there is very little scrambling around. They will sort of pick a cutoff point, like everyone within X nm of the airport will finish inbound the current runway, as long as wind limits permit, and the rest get the new runway.

  31. I've posted in other threads about this. Starter spin is too slow. Dead stop to 20 N2 should take about 5 seconds. The sim takes about twice as long. ITT logic is off- no lightoff when going from cutout to idle on the thrust levers even though N2 shows combustion Fuel flow logic is off- it doesnt correlate to the same as the ITT. Goes straight from 0pph to 440pph when it should be a gradual increase Thrust is abysmally poor- in the sim you need about 50% thrust to taxi when a real CRJ can taxi at idle thrust and will slowly accelerate to the point of needing reversers or brakes to stop it from going too fast. Spool up time from 75% N2 to takeoff power is too slow. Takes 6-10 seconds to reach takeoff thrust. IRL it takes >2 seconds.

  33. Was für ein Wissen, von dem Willen der Umsetzung ganz zu schweigen, muß man mitbringen, um diese " ehrenamtliche " Aufgabe ( mit mutmaßlicher Aufgabe von Freizeit ) zu erfüllen? Dies ist noch nicht einmal ein Projekt, das man für sich selber tut, nein, er tut es für uns!! Weiß nicht, ob man das nur mit " Danke Armin " abtun kann. Meinen allergrößten Respekt für diese Arbeit und das Lächeln deines Avatars spiegelt sich in deinen Berichten wieder. Gruß Micha

  37. Hallo zusammen! Seit ein paar Wochen ist unsere Mülheim/Ruhr Szenerie aus dem Jahr 2014 wieder online, Infos dazu sowie den Downloadlink gibt es hier: Mülheim/Ruhr für X-Plane Da die Szenerie aus dem Jahr 2014 stammt und sie deshalb nicht mehr ganz zeitgemäß ist, arbeiten wir in einem kleinen Team gerade an einer Aktualisierung und an einer Anpassung an X-Plane 12. Bilder dazu gibt es auch schon: Sobald es Neuigkeiten gibt, geht es hier weiter 🙂

  39. How to setup a 180° field of view on 3 displays or beamers with MSFS TWO videos this time ! Ever wanted to upgrade your immersion feeling of one (BIG) notch ? Yes ? Then go for a wide angle display system. Get 3 big displays or even better 3 beamers (second hand, these cost around 400 eur each) and build yourself a visual system that will allow you to look left and right like in a real aircraft. No need for expensive curved display and wrapping software. If you have a small room with 3 with walls available you can easly build a super immersive 180° (or more) setup. The latest update of MSFS added some still experimental features. Among them, a multi window management. There isn’t much documentation yet, so this tutorial is the result of experiment and various researches. We will use a classic setup of 3 views covering a 180° field of view. STEP 1 : Once in MSFS, go to OPTIONS -> GENERAL OPTIONS -> CAMERA Scroll the center panel until you find HOME COCKPIT MODE. Set it to ON. Apply the change and save. STEP 2 : Click “EXPERIMENTAL” at the bottom on the left menu. STEP 3 : The experimental options panel opens. Click on the ADD NEW RENDER WINDOW button STEP 4 : A window setup list opens. 1 – Set the Lateral rotation offset to -90 (as it is the left one) 2 – Set DISPLAY MODE to FULL SCREEN (optional as you can switch later) If you want to use full screen, set the FULL SCREEN RESOLUTION equal to your display resolution as specified in Windows. 3 – Click OK 4 - Click on the ADD NEW RENDER WINDOW button to setup the next window STEP 5 : Repeat the previous step to setup the two other windows -> WINDOW 2 has a lateral rotation offset of 0 (as it is the center one) -> WINDOW 3 has a lateral rotation offset of 90 (as it is the right one) Once done, click APPLY AND SAVE (you will maybe need to click it three times to save all the newly created windows. Make sure you click it until APPLY AND SAVE doesn’t appear anymore otherwise, you won’t be able to fly ! Here you go : -> Outside view -> Full cockpit Let’s fly a bit with the CRJ 550 ! C172 Cockpit overview.

  40. Hi, Ha_Ma is pointing something extremely right and important. Default profile are not alterable (wich is actually the purpose of default profiles) Make sure you name the new ones so that you know directly what they are fo. It is useless to put the device name in the profile name as the profile name is just below the device in MSFS : Example : This one is easier : I also suggest you create new profiles from scratch, especially when you have multiple devices connected as some of the default assignments may be redundant. Best regards.

  43. Using the Xplane 11 Honeycomb Configurator in Xplane 12 There is a quick and dirty fix to be able to use the current Honeycomb Configurator for Xplane 11 in Xplane 12. This isn't an official compatibility statement. Xplane 12 is still in early access version and may still change, and the Configurator is still worked on. The basic idea is simply to copy the whole Configurator files from the Xplane 11 folder to its exact counterpart location in Xplane 12. Then start the configurator that is now in the Xplane 12 folder. Do NOT use the usual shortcut you use for Xplane 11 as there are now TWO copies of the Configurator application in two different locations ! What you need to copy is only one folder : It is the AFC_Bridge folder usually located in C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Desktop\X-Plane 11\Resources\plugins Paste it to the Xplane 12 folder usually located in C:\X-Plane 12 in this subfolder : When you copy the complete AFC_Bridge folder, you also create a copy of the Configurator executable itself. This is THIS copy you need to start when using XP12. (DO NOT use the usual shortcut that may exist on your desktop) Once this configurator is running, load the profile you want to use. You can create you own profiles or copy-paste a profile from XP11 to XP12 (It seems to work indeed) then activate it. The profile is loaded in XP 12 correctly :

  48. This! This is yet another GREAT reason why everyone should be using AAO or SpadNext. Do you know that I don't have to remember to switch bindings? AAO does it for me. I just load and fly and have only view bindings in the sim.
