  1. What's the need for you to interject into threads with input that do not lead to resolution? Your response helps absolutely nothing and leads to you sounding exactly what your accusing me of. I have posted all the airports in the scenery minus 2 with the 3D terrain and the person who is in an actual position to offer support will know this. Clearly, neither of you know what you are looking at and my time is too valuable answering unnecessary questions to non support staff. It's extremely disappointing how many people in this forum need to police where it's not necessary nor warranted. I miss the days when Shaun ran these forums. The longer I have to wait, the closer I get to a review that reflects this product in the light as I've found it. It's not going to hurt me as you seem to think. So please, seeing as you have nothing to offer, let the actual support staff handle it.
  2. Agreed on the trees blocking the runway @ Lukla. Also I got a CTD on approach to Syangboche. The sim settings are as recommended in the manual. No errors in event viewer pertaining to CTD.
  3. Seeing as this is your product I thought you'd know. Do you have the product? None of this looks familiar to you as the support person????????? My apologies I just saw you are a moderator per your tag and not product support. I'll wait for the support folks. Thanks.
  4. So far i'm just doing spot checks. I have not looked at all of them yet but so far with each one I go to is some awful issues. Settings are set as per manual. I'm still checking the rest but so far here's 4 with some nasty low res textures. Is this the intended look?
  5. In that case, I would differ to Aerosoft Dublin. Better to keep it lite but still present. But if a developer is going to spend time adding the feature of highly dense vegetation, it should still look like grass and not a bunch of pixels that are too sharp in appearance from afar and too pixelated up close. People will still fly small VFR aircraft into large airports and see it up close. You don't need to be lying in it to see it that way thus not everyone will be sitting up high in a 777. From that VC shot, it doesn't appear like grass but a bunch of digital spikes. If we are not going for detail a more modest look than whats shown above would look better or no grass at all. My opinion indeed. As for the "lying prone on the grass aircraft spotter" quip, would you still call it that if that project had been published by Aerosoft?
  6. It is does look better. Not so pixelated up close or razor sharp from afar. perhaps in the installer, you will want to give people the option of which texture gradient to use or to even have the grass at all. Some clearly do not care and some definitely will. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Even from afar, it looks too sharp. Unless the image was sharpened in Photoshop or something. Nevertheless, many developers have figured how to get it perfectly smooth without even the slightest hit on performance. If we are not meant to see the grass up close, (or sitting in it) why was the screenshot provided showing us just that from that point of view? Look, you are doing a good job here Darren and I have stated this in the posts i have written promoting your work. Given that, the moment I point out something less than optimal, the response I get is a bit defensive. Grass looks too pixelated this is my observation that's all. We can go on about farming simulators and the nonsense about shooter games posted from the Admin above. It doesn't need to look like a game, which it currently does. it just needs to look like something fit for FS which I feel it does not. The shots below depict flight simulator from an airport of equal size. No complaints of bad performance or OOM's from anyone. This is merely one of many examples I can show. So it is possible. And overall, it really impacts the look of the airport. I applaud your efforts in the implementation, and simply only wish to encourage you to refine it. Now you know me quite well Aaron, I don't think I am far fetching.
  8. Hmmm... up close, the grass is looking a wee bit... Minecraftesque...
  9. I remember quite a while back an Idea regarding "Pilot Flying Airlines" for some reason the idea was shelved. It really seemed like a good idea. Same with the Aerosoft simulator. Now that we are seeing these declining numbers, is it possible Aerosoft will attempt in-house developments in the future? What is the current plan to adjust to the changing market and remain on top flight simulation wise? Now with Microsoft gone, is it really the best idea to hedge bets on X-Plane?
  10. HAHA!! I am just waiting eagerly for your next idea!
  11. Now I don't know what's worse! Eric for coming up with the idea in the first place or Mathijs' idea to google "Aerosoft Pantyhose". I just hope these these ideas didn't manifest during the midnight hour...

    We considered doing that too and implimented it for a short time as people steal from our site as well. The thing is, it doesn't stop people from taking information from a webpage. Insted of right-clicking, all a user has to do is click and drag the image onto their desktop. If it shows as a URL link then they can simply click on that and then right click anyway. As for text, everyone knows ctrl+c and ctrl+v will copy and paste text. And of cource, there is always the snipping tool... So disableing right-click is only successful by doing 1 thing. Annoying readers... D'
  15. You guys need to find out who the developer is and ctc the developer directly...
  16. Ok fair enough. Question: At X-Plane's current rate of growth, how long have you estimated untill the XPL base reaches the FS9 base counting for the current rate of decline of the FS9 base?
  17. And so you are saying the X-Plane base is firmly lager than the FS9 base? Because a X-Plane version was released and I highly doubt there are more X-Plane users out there than FS9 users. So how do you justify your statement? Or are you saying the X-Plane base is smaller but they are spending more money than FS9 people? Because this would be impossible as well given the quantity ratio of products released between the two platforms are highly unmatched. Let's just call a spade a spade. Most developers just don't want to develop products for FS9? Or is it that Aerosoft is in bed with Laminar? No pun to be disrespectful here as I highly respect you Mathijs, but something is amiss here and I believe others see that too. I accepted your statement for what it was but with the XPL release, this makes your words untrue so there has to be another reason an XPL version was released. Perhaps this time the developer himself can clarify...
  18. Anyone want to the see the latest screenshot of Heraklion?? Click me: Heraklion! AirDailyX Exclusive! Cheers! ((-D'))
  19. In fact i did buy the product and Shaun was most helpful in working out the solution for me!
  20. This is the second such error. I almost bought it!!
  21. I don't think this is for FS2004...
