    Request an Train/Bus/Airport/Aircraft/Tool thread

    I have a suggestion for a X-Plane 11 airport scenery, which is curiously missing from commercial and freeware offerings. That is LFPG Paris Charles de Gaulle .

    Simbrief Support

    This topic hasn't been raised in some time. To be quite frank - I would buy a NavDataPro annual account if you supported SimBrief. I like LIDO charts better than Jeppesen. But I can't consider it without. Simbrief is the best flight planner in my opinion, Derek Mayer is one of the nicest most helpful guys I have come across in Flight simming I am sure it would be very easy. Dudley
  4. The stock reply to this some while back, was that there wasn't a sufficient market to consider this, has this changed since XP11? I note that you have much more scenery for X-Plane now. I have bought some of it.
  5. I must say I fly X-Plane in preference to P3Dv4 at the moment - But I think the add-ons drive the sim though. And quality add-ons like the Aerosoft Airbuses will probably bring me back to P3Dv4 - there are nice aircraft for XP11, the FF A320 looks superb, but lacks the immersion. I love the 'Quick Look' feature in XP11, where you assign views to num pad keys. Somebody asked the same question sometime back, and I think that Mathijs responded that the architecture was very different and they didn't see the market as large enough, and there were already Airbuses available there. Things might be changing though.
  6. You didn't mention the video card, it looks like a MSI 1080. Being more of an X-plane user just now. I find that it doesn't push my processor very much, it is getting more GPU intensive ( I have a 1080TI, I have 4k monitor ). However that isn't maxed out either. I am waiting until further sim upgrades to arrive to know what to upgrade. I have a i7 4790 running at 4.6Ghz, which handles it all pretty well.
  7. I think there should be a prize for spotting that, I hadn't noticed it,.
  8. We have seen quite a few products that were only days away from release having to be put back because something has cropped up, only recently. I won't name names but I am sure we could get quite a long list going here. Aerosoft won't give a date until they are sure, and as we have seen, something can still crop up.
  9. There is already such a thing, which has been around a good many years now, but it still works. http://www.avsimrus.com/f/for-pilots-19/popular-calculator-to-calculate-takeoff-parameters-in-from-airbus-type-36340.html Freeware.
  10. True, I have flown Manchester to Agadir on an A330, only 4hrs or so.
  11. I must say - I am lookng forward to the A320 family update more than the A330 now, it does look really exciting. I am preparing for a few down votes as a result ;-)
  12. I insert my key and the program just locks up.
  13. Thanks Stephan, I love it when a plane comes together - Aerosoft are the A-Team.
  14. With P3D I would agree, X-Plane doesn't really show much improvement on an SSD in my experience. Can't work out why. Sent from my SM-J500FN using Tapatalk

  16. I have to agree whole-heartedly. Tom and all the staff we encounter at AS are against the odds, always helpful and polite. God knows when Tom goes to bed, he's always here. They have gone the extra mile helping me with problems with products, they deserve some respect in return.
  17. OK, I actually have a query. My best efforts with the search function has yielded no answer(sorry Tom). I found the web server quite useful for displaying the MCDU on a second PC. Is this being continued on the A330, and updated/improved for the A3XX series?
  18. That's progress - I have been wondering what might be a less popular post than " How about a 2D cockpit and when will it be out? ", but you aced it. Well done!
  19. Don't worry, I have my computer in a pentangle, with garlic and religious paraphernalia installed. I believe FSX had such a facility, I'm not sure about P3D V4. I think I know what Mathijs might say 'It's not in a pilot's everyday tasks' and as Frank has said, it could be difficult to implement. For myself, I don't use it, I want all the hours I can get at my VA and with luck the computer will run overnight if needs be. There are probably facilities that have a higher priority too. Not one to hold your breath on I think.
  20. I would look at a socket compatible CPU on eBay, you should find a i5 or i7 pretty cheap, and an improved graphics card could be possible too. Bank manager might not be necessary. Then sell your old ones to help defray the cost, works for computers and houses etc, etc.
