  1. This just brings another argument into the equation. Software DRM never really stops piracy; a quick Google search with show a number of salacious websites with cracks/fixes etc to circumvent said DRM. The DRM simply punishes end users. Worse, some unethical developers use the DRM to force users off older software so that they are required to purchase new software at full price. Also, as the Aerosoft Team have testified, DRM systems cost money to implement and support. That extra cost in built into the software's retail price. If a DRM add $10/Euro to the final price, wouldn't it be better for the developer to leave out said DRM and sell the product for a lower price. The sales volume would increase while reducing the need for additional support resources. Perhaps, this might allow such developer to focus on adding addition features to a said product or more frequent updates as opposed to fielding emails for failed/exhausted activations. Finally, here is a real life example of software in the business world. Honeywell Aviation Company has been providing us new DVD disks to allow us to upload a new software package for the Honeywell Primus Epic Avionics suite used in the Embraer E-175/195 series aircraft. While speaking to the Honeywell Representative, I asked him what DRM is contained on his disk. He chuckled and replied, "None, those measures never accomplish anything." Wise words indeed.
  2. If anybody hasn't been informed, eSellerate will shutting down their servers. Initially, original software downloads will be effected. Eventually, the deactivation and activation portion of said such DRM will be shut down. This brings up a very important issue for end users. When eSellerate was initially used as a DRM, software companies took pains to inform users that they would never loose access to their content since eSellerate was a long term reliable software company. Fast forward now, if your initial software developer hasn't changed over to the new licensing system, or worse is out of business, you will loose access. This gives me time to thank Aerosoft for not currently using this system. It is so refreshing to see a software publisher treating us consumers with respect instead of presuming we are all criminals out to pirate their IP.
  3. I would love AS or another development group publishing under AS create an MD-11 package, with similar complexity as the AS 32 bit BUS or DA CRJ, for Prepar3d 4.X.
  4. Here is a copy of the V-Speed Cards we use at the Airline I work. Even though our FMC can auto calculate such speeds, we still use a paper backup. These cards attached are normally used for the 737NG.
  5. Stef: Could you build a Master Template for the CRJ-900 as well? Also, could you build a layered master template for the tail so that we could see what the completed tail will look like before laying into the PSD?
  6. CaptKornDog, in order to do a repaint like that, a painter would need a really good painting for us to work from. Here is a really good example: https://cdn6.bigcommerce.com/s-m1rws/products/4447/images/8866/G2UAL402__87335.1504813557.900.600.jpg?c=2 The reason is that the tail as well as the three strip combo is very hard to create from scratch. But if I have a high resolution image like that, I can use the image as transparency and lay it onto the flat model. Sorry wrong quote, I meant Capt Korn Dog who is requesting the old blue tulip United Paint Scheme.

  15. I have the Captains Sim 757. It is ok, but has some issues, more like unfinished flaws. I can use it in P3D, but it is struly not 100% P3D compatible. I have considered the QW 757, but their webpages says that P3D supported. I tried to read their support forums for P3D compatibility, but they locked for non-QW 757 owners.
  16. I would love to see a Boeing 757-200/300 package with the same systems depth level as the Aerosoft Bus.
