  1. I have to admit i'm excited by MFS as well, been testing it long enough. That being said i'm also what Mathijs would call, a hardcore P3D user. I made the move to that platform because i was fed up with complex sceneries in FSX eating all my pc memory. P3D launched, and apart from the dubious EULA it comes with, i'd suggest most users simply ignored that and got on enjoying what is basically an excellent 64bit flight sim, the natural follow on from FSX. I've bought loads of addons, way more than i need, but the sim looks great with them and i'm enjoying my hobby. I can buy most add
  2. Being careful about what i'm saying as i've been testing MFS for a long time now, to sum it up, it will be worth it. Will it be the best home flight sim currently out there? Without a doubt. Will it blow the others out of the water, XP and P3D? Without question. If we're talking about the unenhanced, out of the box standard version of MFS. As has been alluded to already, as an avid flyer of P3D, i've invested heavily into my chosen flight sim, with ORBX, with Aerosoft and a few other companies. Only when i run these addons in P3D 4.5, (not v5 as i've already uninstalled that due to
  3. Any ideas what could be causing this? I just installed the addon, loaded up Lukla and got this. I have ORBX global installed, not sure if that's a factor or not. *** EDIT *** Never mind, figured it out. Obviously had too much wine last night. Safety tip for the future, uninstall the old version first...
  4. Turns out they are included, not a mention of these airports anywhere in any of the supplied documentation. I thought the addon airports would have been installed during the initial install when i selected Europe, but clearly not. Check for the 9th dvd which has the extra airports on it. All of the dvd's look the same so this is an easy error to make especially as i only used about 5 dvd's during install.
  5. Thanks for the help guys but i know which version i have as i'm looking at it now. It's the boxed US Community edition by Aerosoft. I'm basing the content on information supplied by Mathijs Kok at the top of this thread. This is why i'm asking what happened to the 3 european airports that were supposed to be included in this edition as it says on the box they are in there *** EDIT Well i've just discovered the 9th dvd which i think has the airports on it, going to install this and see if they are there
  6. Got my copy a few days ago, haven't had time to try it until tonight. Thought i'd checkout the three included aerosoft sceneries. Um where are they? Went to Nice, all i see is runway, went to Paderborn the same, Faro ditto. Bear in mind i'm new to X-Plane but i did read the little manuals included. Only installed europe scenery area when installing. I checked the custom scenery folder but there's only KSEA and LOWI in there
  7. That's confused things nicely. So what exactly is it that i've ordered? I suspect it's the US community edition that's actually the European edition, (no logic in that at all), then again it might be the global edition as release was scheduled for end of january. No idea what's going on at all now.
  8. Ok. Well i've had no email regarding the cancellation of the order, no mention of a refund, just your word, sorry but i want confirmation please. As far as i'm concerned you still have my money. Secondly, why did you cancel the order in the first place? Why not simply ask me for a delivery address via email? It's taken me two days just to order the thing, now you're asking me to go through all that again?
  9. Thanks for looking into it, buying process seems a bit peculiar for boxed products, it's a lot simpler when ordering download ones
  10. Hi. Latest update on my purchasing saga. Finally ordered after the buying process hung yet again, this time on my birthday which it claimed was incorrect (think i know when i was born). Finally got through to actually paying for it after numerous failed attempts, asked that the product be sent to a different address other than the invoice address. Filled out the details, get a confirmation email that it has all gone through. It then says the shipping address is the same as the invoice address!! I sincerely hope not or i will cancel the order. What is going on here? Never had this issue with do
  11. An update to FS9 version would be most welcome. I'm also happy with what i have but an update never hurts. One question though to Andras, there is plenty of hi-res scenery out there, you say yourself the FSX ground textures are much more detailed. Running high end scenery in FS9, especially ground texture, is no big thing these days, i regularly get 70-80 fps round Budapest, a light hit on framerates for better ground scenery surely would be a bonus fro FS9 users. Just a thought.
  12. Downloaded this last night, used the torrent option, about 30mins as opposed to the 12 hour direct download option. Not tried X Plane before so naturally curious. Before i say any more, here are my computer specs, very average, dual core running at 3.16, 4GB ram, GeForce GT 240 card and running on XP. Firstly, framerates. On the standard planes in the game, nothing under 30fps. Much smoother than FSX at least for me. Controls are obviously different, tried to use the flaps and ended up turning my engine off on take off but that's to be expected. The clouds look amazing and the weather
  13. This is kind of my point as well. The GAP sceneries are wonderful, worthy of any scenery collection. I could reel off all of them individually but some notable excellent sceneries are Budapest, Paris CDG, Innsbruck, Munich and so on. Other developers namely UK2000 can create excellent sceneries with their eyes shut, not to mention many freeware sceneries that are also outstanding. Why we have to put up with this is beyond me, and what really annoys the hell out of me is why weren't there any screenshots of the FS9 version so we could go, yes or no thank you? Happy to take our cash i see, we
  14. Just purchased this for FS9, installed with no proplems, thought i'd try out LTAI Antalya first, or so i thought. Trial flight with a default cessna skylane, on takeoff it was immediatley obvious something is wrong, the framerates are appaling, see images and this is without AI traffic This shot is looking away from the airport, 60.1fps This shot is looking at the airport, just by panning around to it from the same loacation as the other shot, 14.6fps which is dreadful No idea what it will drop to if i add in AI traffic as well. I'm afraid the benchmark here is Munich airport wher
  15. Based on the new shots, you've pretty much nailed it now. Only thing i'd suggest is the band of white lines on the wing should be closer together as on the tail, the original photo clearly shows that. Engine cowl looks much better now as well. Very nice
