  1. Any suggestions? I would spend my prize from July or/and August (if I would win, of course ๐Ÿ˜‰) for the one or the two flightsimmers with the most pictures from the right location.
  2. I don't know if Aerofly FS from IPACS counts as Aerosoft product? On the metal box of AF FS2 are 2 Aerosoft logos: one on the front side and one on the rear side. For those who want to know the location or/and want to compare with MSFS: In my opinion Aerofly FS has the best scenery you can get for Switzerland. It's such a fun to fly over and between these fascinating mountains of Swiss Alps. The photoreal textures and the mesh are so fine that the immersion is incredible. I love it ๐Ÿ™‚ And why not have two flight simulators?
  3. I hope this posting will not be deleted like others I wrote in this thread https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/155240-thoughts-on-a-new-simulator-the-world/ These postings from me have been downvoted, have been answered by Mr. Kok and now are deleted. It's not MSFS. And it's not a trick ๐Ÿ˜‰ It's just FSX plus photoreal scenery ๐Ÿ™‚ Approaching Heliport Sรถlden in the very famous ร–tz Valley / ร–tztal, Tirol (in the wider surroundings of Innsbruck) Sim: FSX (SP1+SP2); aircraft: Schweizer 300 CBI; scenery: Austria Professional HD West So don't worry, you don't need to buy very expensive hardware to be able to fly over your house and count your cars or count your sheep ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just buy good photorealistic sceneries. And don't let them talk you into o..x landclass sceneries! Have a lot of fun with your flight simulator, no matter if it's FSX or MSFS. Or maybe Aerofly FS . . . Always safe landings Torsten P.S.: In this thread you will find some links to my other screenshot threads with FSX and photoreal sceneries: https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/152255-my-aprils-screenshots-water-and-waves/
  4. @ Emi: ๐Ÿ˜‰ No time for driving several Porsches. Only time for flightsimming, flying with sailplane, motorbiking, normal biking, hiking in the Alps, intelligent ladies, and only small little time to eat. Sometimes even no time to sleep (oh I can't find a link to that song - sorry ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
  5. Sorry for dreaming: if I were you I would buy Flight Sim World from Dovetail for an apple and an egg and would produce flightsim boxes each containing: - the base sim 64bit (without ground textures) - a famous region with photorealistic ground textures, landmarks and POIs (Bavaria, Baden-Wรผrttemberg, Mosel region, Tokio region, ...) - a famous plane (may be joint venture with other developers for FSX/P3D) So everybody can collect these boxes. Installation of base sim only needed for the first time. And I would sell these boxes as described above. All over the world. And in 5 years I could drive a Porsche like Mopperle ๐Ÿ˜‰ Please, don't panic, this was only a dream. I'm not keen on a Porsche ๐Ÿ˜‰ I'm only keen on good photorealistic sceneries ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoyable on available hardware ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. And imagine in each of these 16 products would be another new aircraft ๐Ÿ™‚ All the people will try to collect each of these products. I want to become shareholder for this product series! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Edit: sorry, our answers had crossed each others!
  7. Nice! ๐Ÿ™‚ If it would be finished with whole Germany with photorealistic ground (maybe in 16 parts) and if we could integrate FSX aircrafts, I would buy it immediately. (For me no autogen would be needed ๐Ÿ™‚ - just some good landmarks and POI's ๐Ÿ™‚ ) Edit: I think you could sell these 16 products in tourist offices, campsites, in tourist busses, on airports, in bookstores and magazine stores at the train stations and so on. Just imagine other famous touristic regions. Very nice idea! Very, very nice!
  8. That's really fine! Congratulations to Asobo for this product and congratulations to Microsoft for its marketing. And now imagine there would be a fine flight simulator with less hardware requirements so that nearly everybody in the second and third world could use it. Can you imagine how many addons you could sell for this FS with a good marketing? Edit - by the way: from some social projects I know that there are also many, many people in the first world who can't afford expensive PC hardware. Not only scholars, students, family fathers and retired people . . .
  9. Okay, accepted ๐Ÿ™‚ So if you're experience is that FSX is commercially dead, you can sell all FSX products ahmmm not for free but for 30% or 20%. So maybe you can bring people from the second or third world to flight simulation. Better to earn 20% or 30% from existing products than earning nothing from existing products if these products are commercially dead. And if these people like flight simming then there is a good chance that they switch to MSFS some day . . .
  10. I know, you did not ask me, but I can tell you: MSFS (and its marketing) fulfills the dream of flying. This dream for flying is as old as mankind. P3D (and its marketing) only fulfills the wish for flight simulation. This is an immense difference. So MSFS adresses nearly "everybody", while P3D only adresses real life pilots or hardcore simmers. EDIT: Sorry Mathijs, please read over these lines: And I'm convinced that FSX could gather all these people, whom Microsoft and Asobo has re-awakened the dream of flying, but who can't (or don't want to) afford the expensive hardware. Just do not make marketing for FSX like marketing for flight simulation (e.g. flying with Airbus over LC-sceneries) but make marketing for the dream of flying (e.g. flying over photoreal sceneries).
  11. Well, you can imagine that the new MSFS and its wonderful marketing bring a lot of new people to the community?! I think the same way. And I'm convinced that not everybody can (or want to) afford the hardware that is necessary for MSFS. So you suppose that those people will fly MSFS with X-Box, as I assume? And I suppose that a lot of those people might give FSX a new chance . . .
  12. No, I don't disagree. I fully understand your opinion and your strategy ๐Ÿ™‚ What I want to say is: if every super market and car producer is practising market segmentation, why should this not be successful in flight simulation? Not more and not less ๐Ÿ™‚
  13. Well, this is a question like who was first: chicken or egg? If there are less [no] new products to buy, it's logical that we reduce [stop] buying. And when Aerosoft told us clearly, that FSX is commercially dead, I started to give my money to other distributors who still saw a market for FSX. To show them that they are right and to keep them friendly to FSX. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sorry for saying that, but I'm sure you will understand me in the same way as I understand you, that you have to focus on the new sim MSFS to be able to pay your developers. On the other way I would like to ask you to not forget the people who can't (or want to) afford very expensive new hardware every three years. I know that you don't focus on very rich people (like PMDG or FS Labs do), so that you want to keep your products affordable (the mass brings the money). So you should still support flight simulators running on affordable hardware like FSX and Aerofly. The simmers can still get very good results with FSX. That's the reason why I show my screenshots in the screenshot forum ๐Ÿ™‚ And I wish everbody a lot of fun with flight simulating, no matter if it's FSX, Aerofly or MSFS ๐Ÿ™‚ Always safe landings Torsten Btw: do you know the strategy market segmentation? Every supermarket and every car producer applies this strategy to be very successfully. This is the reason why I think that there is still an ongoing chance for flight simulators like FSX and Aerofly.
  14. And to make it easier to everybody Iet me add numbers to the pictures, okay? 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6: 7: 8: 9: 10: 11:
