  1. Not buying MSFS udates quite yet... But this will be very high on the list when I start to!
  2. I can't answer the first part. But as for the second part, this is already the case. If you want the largest chunk of what you pay to go to the developer, buy direct. Every link in the chain has to be paid of course, and webshops need web developers, servers, bandwidth, support staff etc... And preferably some profit as well. An often quoted rate for the commission webshops demand/receive is 30% (SimMarket, Steam,...) Of course, many developers are fine with this: it increases exposure and hopefully sales. (70% of something is better than 100% of nothing) And if they go through a 3rd party exclusively, it saves them setting up a webshop, file hosting, payment processing, etc (all with the associated costs, responsibilities and liabilities) for themselves. For consumers, it's a balancing act between trust (will I still have access to my downloads in a couple of years?), the convenience (and risk) of having everything in one place, and supporting their favourite developers directly... I tend to be very inconsistent in this regard myself, sometimes buying direct, sometimes not... Sorry for the off-topic post 😉
  3. Looking impressive! Hope it looks as great in the sim!
  4. Finally pulled the plug on the DCS AV-8B in the last Christmas Sale... Yet another plane to learn how to fly. 😉
  5. A heavily loaded 747 with a remarkable red nose but no registration caught departing a clandestine high latitude airport for destinations unknown...
  6. I've been looking into this myself for a while. Although I've never gone further (so far) than the looking into it part... While it will most likely be technically possible with the Arduino nano, it will be a lot easier with the Arduino Leonardo or Micro, as those have a built-in USB-controller if I'm not mistaken. As I said, I haven't actually tried it yet. But you may want to give this instructable a shot (if you have the right Arduino): Arduino as Game Controller / Joystick
  7. Using a secondary joystick with twist rudder next to the yoke might be a good way to try. Just remove all other axis assignments from the joystick. The one thing that may happen is that you quickly wish for 3 hands. 😉
  8. Thanks for the info. Let's hope we'll see it sooner rather than later.
  9. Would love to see a remake of Iceland X and Keflavik for P3D4.
  10. Nice to see the Dimona again! Nice little aircraft that I never flew as much as it deserved...
  11. Looking forward to seeing this project proceeding in the right direction... Brussels is sorely missed in P3D right now. I keep my fingers crossed that development goes smoothly once it is resumed in full. Thanks for the open and honest communication Mathijs.
  12. Thanks for the heads up! Looking forward to the screens!
  13. I hope development is still going strong... Trying hard to be patient in waiting for this product!
