Recently we have seen a lot of codes used to unlock our products being offered for discounted prices. Almost all of them are bought using stolen credit cards. These codes will all be blocked by our systems and you will have to try to get your money back from the seller, we are unable to assist in these matters. Do be very careful when you see a deal that is almost too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

  1. General Aviation as we know it is part of the skeletal backbone within the aviation industry, as it encompasses some avenues without imposing too many restrictions that 121 Commercial and 135 Charter flying do: 1. Flight Training, Recreation flying, Bush and Cargo (non- Part 135) Ops are a few areas in which we se a strong presence of General Aviation. Let's see your General Aviation spirit for this month's contest.

  2. Well the the results are in!! This month we congratulate Elly Beinhorn on winning July's screenshot contest. This epic capture shows a true STOL workhorse plastered against an impressive Aurora background. Email to follow shortly.
  3. The concept I will agree is an interesting one, but as mentioned by both Mathijs and Dave will require some additional work on the back-end which will cause additional development time which may be a wasted effort in that most simmers do not want to be bothered by nuances of system failures in flight. Granted there are many complex aircraft available that would have this capability of providing some sort of initiated failure log......BUT...... The majority of the failures that are encountered on a flight deck can be addressed with the QRH and will allow the crew to get the aircraft to the final destination, suitable airport or even returning to the field with the most critical part being having to declare an emergency to gain priority handling to the field. Most crashes which initially have some sort of failure are usually the result of human error due to not following or not executing proper procedures. The most probable way for one to get a feel for what may have transpired prior to the crash would be to pull data normally written to the FDR, and listen to the CVR if one is available. In the SIM CVR capability is practically unavailable unless the flight is being recorded via a stream or there would have to a recording tool running alongside this program. FDR acquisition can be a very tedious feat as the real aircraft FDR records several thousand variables based on the parameters chosen to be recorded. There is at least one aircraft that I know of but there could be others as well that will be able to provide FDR data, and even has the capability of using real world data depending on the format to recreate events. This feature may not be an attraction to most simmers as it is not a cheap feature and more of an "option" for the TRAINING Editions for that given aircraft. This tool you think/speak of would be advantageous more so if it pulled common parameters from all aircraft within the simulation platform and provided the most likely reason for the crash, but again the key question is - would it be worth the development time. Virtual airlines may see some benefit to keep a tab on how their pilots are flying their routes and flying by the company SOPs. Cheers
  4. Thanks My friend, I have a simple i7 8700k with a 1080Ti (but sometimes use my i7 2700k with a 980Ti) running at stock (not a big fan of overclocking). I do however run this baby at 3840x2160 4k, nothing else special. I do however may drop the images in a photo editor to darken or brighten the image as some platforms may tend to over/under expose the atmosphere. That being said I enjoy the images that you put forth as yourself and @edetroit keep the FSX and FS2004 platforms alive
  5. My sincerest apologies to everyone for the suspense regarding May's winner.......The creativity displayed by All participants certainly made May's judging process really challenging as all entries had unique scenes, angles and scenery. Congratulations to Nono1 for winning May's screenshot contest. While this may seem like a simple shot, it shows a flight deck that is powered and awaiting the crew to get settled in for the start of a trip or what may have been a turn. The FO's FMC is untouched, as he may be completing the walk around while enjoying the cup of coffee that he mentioned while the CA may be still in the Ops center gathering final details of the from his Dispatcher OR he could be flirting the new hot flight attendant in the galley. The ramp however appears lifeless so it could be that the crew is required to reposition the aircraft to a gate/stand before things start coming to life. So many scenarios could be applied.

  6. Finn, How goes it? The original development of the Majestic line of products stems back to 2000 thereabout with the Fanda Q300 which by today's standards took some blood sweat and tears to develop. Each engine was theoretically modeled as two so that we could properly simulate the ECU system, so in essence 4 engines. This freeware model eventually evolved into the MJC Q300 payware version in 2005 for FS9. The Q400 on the other hand tool well over 7 years for its development. To add to Finn's statement, they put a lot of work into the Twotter based on the time frame in which it was it released it was a very good rendition despite the few challenges for ground friction for taxi operations, regardless of how much breakaway power was given having to use the FSX engine for development. Folks tend to get impatient with developers because they seem to take too long in developing a product, but with products such as the Twotter which have several variants it will/can take much longer as each variant has different ground/flight characteristics, which are not always easy to reproduce within a simulated platform, and if they are able to simulate a behavior/characteristic it usually has several factors involved to make it happen. It is easy for one to make a comparison to a different developer's work but it may not be that easy to implement the functionality based on how the add-on is being coded. There are several functions the MJC would love to incorporate available to most aircraft within FSX/P3D but testing proved that it would cause multiple issues with other fictions of the aircraft. So, I'll add my 2 cents here on my wish list 1. Engine performance based on temperatures affecting takeoffs/landings (this may already be incorporated, but don't recall). 2. Improved taxi performance (which would still be affected by weight and balance) 3. Improved power-plant performance for : - Beta and reverse - Reduce the lag for power lever inputs 4. Improved propeller animation (not a must but after engine shut down the props spin much longer than they should) 5. With the plan for sound enhancements, the sound of wearing brakes as the brakes do take a beating. 6. Make it an option to have the tail stand installed by the simmer as failure to do so could lead to the aircraft sitting on the tail "IF" it is improperly loaded. Cheers
  7. Well folks as the header states - still following the SOMETHING theme - shows us anything STOL (short takeoff and landing) capable. As always creativity goes a long way. It would also be good for participants to give a little background info regarding the image being posted, i.e. departure airport, type aircraft (if not common), and maybe what the image is attempting to portray.

  8. Some stunning shots, most of which bring back memories of my flying days in the Caribbean, especially this months winner. HeliFan123, this was an epic capture and the scenery which I assume is XP11 brings the shot to life. Congratulations, email to follow shortly.
  9. Caribbean flying is some of the most exhilarating flying that one can experience, so this month we'll focus on this region of the world. Many challenging approaches and departures exist, so show us some of your Caribbean adventures (still under the SOMETHING theme) - CARIBBEAN!!!!!

  10. Congratulations on winning April's screenshot contest... The E2 Hawkeye is a powerhouse in the turboprop arena, great to see it enter the flight simulation platform. Email to follow shortly
  11. Some stunning shots this months....Keep 'em coming...just a few days left
  12. We'll pull the pressure off this month and go with everyone's beloved topic (still under the SOMETHING theme) - ANYTHING!!!!! Users are allowed to change their posted image up until the time frame allowing you to do so expires. If you fail to post an image based on the theme of the month, it is very likely that the image will not be considered during "judgment day". As Always - All participants are ONLY allowed 1 image.
