  1. Whoa! I had no idea of that kind of cost. Thinking about it in depth I could calculate how it could cost that much to develop though. It seems like a very big risk, although I suppose with big risk can come big rewards.
  2. Just an idea for a future screenshot contest theme, and perhaps it has been done before; shadows. Some of my favourite screenshots include impressive lighting and shadows, and our sims are now looking amazing since shadowing has become more prevalent and is appearing more realistic. Cheers,
  3. Ryanair 737-700 EI-SEV turning on to final at EGPH, Edinburgh Airport:
  4. Thanks, Actually now I have found that it can be manually disabled in the content.xml file in the Flight Simulator folder.
  5. Hi, I purchased ENVA Trondheim Vaernes from Aerosoft and installed in to MSFS. It does not seem to appear in the content manager in MSFS. Is there any way to disable this airport other than uninstalling? I ask because I need to disable ENVA to do some troubleshooting with another airport. Thanks
  6. Hi Aharon. You will have no issues updating to the latest verison of SODE. You do not need to uninstall SODE prior to installing it. Usually if an airport requires SODE, then the installation of SODE will be a part of the airport installation process, so you should just click on yes to install it. If it sees that there is a newer version already installed, then the SODE installer is smart enough to not install over that. SODE should always be kept up to the latest version, or at least up to the latest version that your airports require.. If you are in doubt you can get the installer directly from the SODE website. https://sode.12bpilot.ch/ I notice that SODE 1.6.8 is now the latest version and it has added support for P3DV5. It will also still support all versions of FSX and P3D. Regards,
  7. Hi, I just noticed this thread for the first time. It sounds very interesting. Thanks for developing it. Regards,
  8. Magnificent shots Erik. You know, I was just thinking the other day that I hadn't seen you around in a while, and then I checked the FTX forums and here, and saw you had posted, and I thought it must have just been me. Good to see you back.
  9. The aircraft type should be obvious, even with little light.
  10. I would just like to say a huge thanks in advance to Aerosoft for the very generous offer of a free copy of Airport Manchester XP11. I do not own this airport, although I own many other excellent Aerosoft products, so thanks in advance for this wonderful gift. For those that have not yet seen the announcement: Product information "Airport Manchester XP11" For free for you now: Airport Manchester XP11! *The promotion 'Article for free' is valid from 30 March to 13 April 2020. https://www.aerosoft.com/en/flight-simulation/xplane-11/sceneries/2621/airport-manchester-xp11 Cheers,
  11. No problem Kroswynd. I am very sorry for your loss, it must be understandably difficult. My best wishes also.
  12. @DaveCT2003 Hi Dave, I thought I would reply back and let you know that after following your full uninstall/reinstall guide above the A318/319/320/321 and A330 are now starting correctly when loaded in the turnaround state. Thanks for your help. Regards, Scott
  13. Hi Markus, I should have said, the default state I was starting in was the turnaround state, which was the state that is set to default, by default. Yes I have tried without FS2Crew also. FS2Crew should not really affect the aircraft until it is activated on each flight by bringing up the control panel. With the latest version ( my external power switch on the overhead is correctly set to on. This seems to have been fixed with one of the previous hotfixes. Cheers, Thanks Dave, I will check that thread out and do a fresh installation to try. I was initially deleting some files in the Documents/Aerosoft folder when trying to install the A330, but I didn't want to dlete too many because I wasn't sure what was related to other Aerosoft products, such as the Airbus 32 bit which I still have installed. I will try deleting all the recommended folders and files and doing a fresh install. Cheers,
  14. Hi, I have recently noticed some inconsistencies. I was having trouble with the A330 and the latest FS2Crew integration for that aircraft. When I start in the default state and then start FS2Crew, the First Officer switches off the External Power switch on the overhead for some reason. I then have to turn it back on again. I noticed when trying different versions that the V1.0.0.0 of the A330 had the external power switch off by default and then this was fixed with one of the experimental updates, so if using the latest experimental update the issue has been solved and the external power switch is on by default. That is good, and correct. Just the other day I downloaded the latest version of the Airbus Pro A318/A319/A320/A321 (V1.3.0.0) Now I see that the turnaround state for that latest version has the external power switch off, and therefore the aircraft unpowered, by default. I assume this is a bug. As for the FS2Crew issue, that is still not solved and the developer (Bryan) could not replicate it. I wonder if any of the developers or testers have used the FS2Crew program with the A330? If so, have they seen this issue? Cheers,
  15. Another site for useful info and pics: https://www.planespotters.net/
  16. Here is another short video showing the left main bogey while touching down:
  17. Oh. OK. I have not checked that either. I will have to check it out too. Not that I usually pay attention to such things. I mainly just sit in the cockpit, with occasional external glimpses during flight.
  18. Hi Bob, No, unfortunately not. Aircraft seem to have endless numbers relating to their manufacture and use . The C/N is the construction number, the L/N is the line number, and of course your link also shows other info, but unfortunately no Fin number. I think I did find Fin numbers for a bunch of airliners once, but from memory it must have been when I had a premium subscription (free for a trial period) with either Flight Aware or Flight Radar 24. These sites have a great deal of info on aircraft but a lot of it is only accessible to users paying a subscription. Air Canada actually has a page outlining the Fin number for all their aircraft, but as far as I have seen they are the only airline doing this. Apparently the Fin number is a code made of letters and/or numbers inscribed on the vertical tail of airliners, and it is used by the airline to differentiate their fleet. Why they can't use the rego number or another number I don't know . I suppose it's some sort of short code to sort their aircraft by. https://www.aircanada.com/ca/en/aco/home/fly/onboard/fleet/fins.html The only reason I have for searching for Fin numbers is that on Simbrief they have a "Saved Airframes" database where you can add particular sim aircraft that you fly regularly and there are a lot of fields available to add or edit, including the Fin number, Mode-S code, SELCAL code, engine type, number of seats etc etc. So it's not so important, just something I was curious about finding. Cheers,
  19. Thanks! I was looking for fin numbers yesterday. You wouldn't know where to find those would you? Another few sites which can be helpful for aircraft info, amongst other things: https://www.airfleets.net/home/ https://www.jetphotos.com/ https://www.airliners.net/ https://flightaware.com/ https://www.flightradar24.com/ Cheers,
  20. @edetroit Here are a couple of vids showing the gear animations. Cheers,
