  1. I've bought Zürich 2012 and must say I am VERY happy with the visual quality, the modeling and texturing is superb, clearly the best looking LSZH scenery so far. And all this with an excellent frame rate. So thank you very much for this. I've found a couple of bugs and issues I would like to mention. Some are just details and others rather major ones that need an update. 1.: AFCAD / AFX file: This airport REALLY needs a multiple runway AFX file! It is impossible to handle the amount of traffic in Zurich if the aircraft are departing and arriving on the very same runway. The included AFX file results in a single runway for both, resulting in 20 aircraft waiting in front of the runway with no way of departure because there's always one on final. So we really need a second runway to be used. If you do not know how to make a multiple runway AFX file, ask Mike Strasser from Sim Wings, he knows. 2.: Again AFX file: Airline assignments are incomplete and erroneous. The ICAO code for Swiss Intl. Air Lines is SWR and NOT CRX. Yes I know it is wrong in UT2. Anyway, all the gates that have CRX should also get an SWR in addition. CRX is no longer a valid ICAO code. But you can leave it in, doesn't hurt. But it needs SWR. One World carriers should be at terminal 1, like BAW or RJA, also NLY. The ramp stands west of threshold 34 should be made bigger in diameter. Those need to be available for heavies. As it is now I have my Antonov 124 and the UAE government B777 parking at the new terminal 2 instead of the Whiskey-Stands where they get parked on the real airport. 3.: Just a minor detail: The ground radar on top of the ATC tower is not correctly connected to it's supporting structure, looks odd when rotating. 4.: The wind socks at LSZH are bright orange in colour, not red and white stripes. 5.: The taxiway signs should be done in better quality. The ones we see at present look like default ones generated by the AFCAD. They do not match the ones on the real airport and look very cheap compared to the rest of the airport. The real taxiway signs are of a darker yellow and darker red colour, and they are NOT black on the backside but grey. 6.: I've spotted some floating obstacle beacons, two in front of Hangar 2 and 1 in front of the prison. That's all for now. I hope those issues will be addressed in an update soon. Once again I want to point out I really like the overall quality of the scenery, I just want to help you make it even better, so that people will not go and buy that warmed up 2nd gen. scenery coming from FSDT soon... The single runway issue is really critical. I've ran the simulation during the time I wrote this post. The queue didn't get shorter at all, traffic has no chance for departure, so if the user wants to depart from LSZH while adhering to ATC, he will be stuck on ground taxiing for at least half an hour, no fun!

  2. Right there Simon. What is it with some I do not know. Since when does simply buying from a dealer automatically justify me getting some reward or benefit in kind? Any scheme in place is going to come from the dealer. Asking for it in such a blatant fashion is often conceived as downright rude. One of the oddest requests I believe I have seen to date. And just because x dealer offers this kind of benefit does not justify the request to dealer y. Plain bad manners in my book. Andrew

  8. Hi All, It might be an older addon but the Wilco 737 classic earned it's place as one of my favourites today. As some of you might about 18 months ago I left work to gain my commercial pilots licence. Today I had my first flight in a full motion sim as part of a Jet Orientation Course I'm taking to try to make myself more employable to get that elusive first airline job. The minute I sat in the sim I felt instantly at home due to the time I'd spent flying the above addon. I knew where the switches were and how the FD and autopilot modes worked. This enabled me to stay infront of the aircraft despite having never flown anything faster than a Beech Duchess!! I'm really looking forward to tomorrows exercises and I'll try and post a couple of pics from the sim if my phone plays ball.

  9. You'll be back. Flying in the real world is better, but you'll have too much down time between flights.

  10. Scroll down for English text. Dieser Patch behandelt ein Problem mit unterschiedlicher Verteilung der Thermik bei Online-Teilnehmern mit Microsoft Flight Simulator Servicepack 2 (FSX2) und solchen mit dem Acceleration-Expansion Pack (FSXX). Außerdem wird unter FSXX die Übereinstimmung der Thermik mit den Geländemerkmalen verbessert. FSXX-Benutzer sollten diesen Patch auf jeden Fall verwenden. Obwohl die Unterschiede für FSX2-Benutzer kaum auffällig sind, wird auch für diese die Installation empfohlen um Konsistenz zwischen allen Online Teilnehmern zu garantieren. Dieser Patch enthält nicht alle Programmdateien und setzt eine Installation von CumulusX! 1.8.0. voraus. English: This patch solves a problem with different thermal distribution between online-partners using Microsoft Flight Simulator Servicepack 2 (FSX2) and the Acceleration Expansion Pack (FSXX). In addition, the alignment of thermals with terrain features will be improved with FSXX. Users of FSXX should apply the patch in any case. Though the effect on FSX2 is rather subtle, it is also recommended for FSX2 users, in order to guarantee consistency among all online participants. This patch is not a complete installation. Instead it requires prior installation of CumulusX! 1.8.0. Available at: www.luerkens.homepage.t-online.de/peter

  11. Ok, maybe this post is just to get out some frustration... however, I think you guys at Aerosoft can stand som critisism also. What is so frustrating is the fact that it is such a great modelled plane and the sounds and controls are amazing, BUT, at the same time, you have left out (in my opinion) the most important piece... the 2D panel. There are waaaaay to many buttons and switches to press and the Track ID technology is not good enough to let us multitask while the cabin or picture is shaking from side to side. I think the biggest mistake is that people are trying to create something close to the real thing and forget that a simulator will ALWAYS be a simulator and we need to try and keep it simple, but at the same time believable. Also, such small details, such as the wingview wich is not modelled into the cabin view is disapointing. The sound in wingview is so loud you can't possibly enjoy it for more than a few seconds. And it's a shame, because the wing view is abselutely amazing. I cincerely hope, that in the future you will provide us with a 2D panel. Don't get me wrong, the VC is outstanding, but for complex tasks such as setting up the FMC and takeoff and landing, only a 2D panel will work in my (and I'm very sure in many other's) case. For now, I'm going back to Wilco's airbus. Although the model is not nearly as nice as yours, it has the full package, VC, 2D panel, modelled interior, good sounds and wingviews with interior sound. Also, I would like to point out, that I'm really looking forward to your CRJ release, but if it is also missing the things mentioned above I think you are loosing costumers because of this. So please take this into consideration before releasing your products. Sorry to be so negative, but I'm a big costumer of Aerosoft and I feel that gives me the right to give some critisism. Happy new years! Regards, Andreas

  13. I think you should seriously consider reinstalling the Bus and giving it a try through the VC. The VC is something that one has to get used to, but once you do, it's awesome. The Bus is the first addon i've bought without a 2D and after a week or so, I got used to it and it's basically the only plane I've been using for the past couple of months. And also, Aerosoft does have an extensive feature listing on the website and I'm almost certain it states the lack of 2D panels on the bus. Give the Bus another try! It'll be worth it! Happy New Years, -Matt
