  1. To be totally honest, we do not feel the need to involved in this. Most, if not all, items have been discussed to death on our forums. If people want to repeat those discussions on other forums they should feel free to so, but without us. Some issues are on the list as being open, and so noted Some issue have been sorted out and will be delivered in an update. Most of those so noted. Some issues are simply totally not being able to be recreated on our systems and have been proven to be solved by a clean install of the sim. This has been shown on our forums time and time again. Many issues are simply limitations of the simulator at this moment. All that is clearly replied to on our forums. Most of our comments are simply totally ignored. They can be found rather easily and we believe that repeating things time and time again just makes no sense. As always we are more than willing to discuss these issue on our forums as long as they are done respectfully. Repeating them on other forums is not in our interest. And because I did not found any issue not already discussed here or in tickets, I am closing this. I am sure some people will see this as a vicious attack on free speech but these are our forums and we decide what is welcome here. If you have an issues please add new information to the topic about that issue. If you a new issue, please make a new topic as we are always wanting to learn more about possible problems. If you believe posting in forums that we do not follow will solve the issues you have, by all means, do so. We check these forums every two weeks so if there is any new info it will be inserted in our bug trackers at some time.
  2. Let me be rather cautious here. As it is clear demand is higher then what we can deliver (unfortunately, we really wish it would be different), orders are handled as they come in. For resellers and private customers. Now let it be clear where you buy the product is more or less irrelevant for us. If you feel Lidl is more reliable in delivery and support, by all means buy from them . But it all comes from our warehouse.
  3. When installing, yes, when updating no, that is super complex because we need to move file while keeping all links intact.
  4. But weather is indeed another thing to keep in mind. Only yesterday did I got a 70 mph windshear while cruising along. AIS went from 250 to 320 in a second, of course the aircraft lost all civil behavior at that moment.
  5. Jori, I am very sorry you are sick hearing about MSFS but that is nothing I can sort out for you. The fact we do not do development for P3D is very very simple. None of the developers who work on commision for us want to do P3D add-ons because they know they will use a lot of money and when I would do so with our internal teams my CEO's would fire me. We love P3D, we love every sim. And when other developers fill the gap we leave that would make me very happy. I do not see it because everybody who knows the scene knows the very limited sales potential of P3D add-ons, so we have to depend on freeware. But if you believe P3D will soar again I can only say that we wish the same. Just do not depend on us or the other well known names who have bills to pay. Cause they just look at the spreadsheets and see it make no sense. These are not decisions WE take, we go where the customers are. And I would not worry too much about our loyal customers. At this moment we are seeing our most loyal customers very happy spending money on our MSFS DLC. In fact better then we have seen in over a decade. Jori I fully understand your point of view. You are a hardcore simmer, you want great hydraulic systems and not great graphics. And you got those in many add-ons for P3D at this moment. Be happy! They will continue to work. Just do not expect any publisher to put a few hundred thousand dollars into a new product. That will be a few hundred thousand dollars lost. You do not believe that. so be it.
  6. I would suspect icing. If you see any weird speed in cruise always activate all anti icing you have.
  7. As we get closer to the release of Microsoft Flight Simulator on the Xbox (and yes we are excited about that), more and more people are asking us if our add-ons will be available on that platform. The simple answer is that we do not know yet. For sure on release none of our products will be available until we can do some serious testing. As we understand it at this moment (and I will update this post when I am 100% sure) every legal copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator will give you access to the simulator on Xbox. Support for these products will be shared with Microsoft. We have zero influence on the installation process but if you find issues inside the product itself do come to our support channels and let us help you. This is the same as it is with DLC bought on the Marketplace so nothing new there.
  8. Mykonos Airport (IATA: JMK, ICAO: LGMK) is the international airport of the Greek island of Mykonos. It is located 4 kilometers southeast from the town of Mykonos at a 405ft elevation. It serves flights to domestic and European metropolitan destinations due to the island being a popular leisure destination. The airport first operated in 1971. It nowadays has a single runway designated 16-34 which is connected to the apron via two small taxiways, so backtrack is needed for every departure and landing. The apron has been redesigned in 2020 to hold seven (7) parking positions, all of them requiring a pushback procedure. A renovated Terminal and a brand-new Fire station have been completed and delivered in May 2021. Mykonos airport is equipped with and NDB (FREQ:401) a VOR (FREQ:110.00) navaid and has several instrument procedures (recently including RNAV). Mykonos island is called “the island of winds”. Most days of the year strong gusting winds (usually from North/Northeast) blow at the island and the airport vicinity. Those winds along with the short runway length (6.244ft) and the hills around it make the landing a challenging procedure! Important note: 29Palms has already arranged a visit to Mykonos airport during summer 2021, to take pictures and create the renovated buildings of the airport (Terminal, fire station etc). This could not have been done earlier due to the recent delivery of the buildings (May 2021) and COVID restrictions. This update will be delivered as soon as it is ready free of charge. Features: Detailed representation of the terraforming of the airport’s surrounding area Sloped runway High-detailed 3d objects and buildings High detailed ground polygons and textures Animated apron vehicles Custom animated windsocks Detailed representation of the airport’s parking area High detailed apron including the new airport’s layout lines and signs High detailed night lighting most of it being “physical” (dynamic lighting) Fully custom taxiway, runway, reil and tower beacon lights. All the lights have been designed from scratch with custom 3d objects. Moreover, the intensity and color of their glow has been trimmed so that the outcome is much less intense and much closer to the real airport Custom Hazard beacon lights at airport’s surrounding area (on top of the surrounding hills) Custom boats and ships at the island’s port Three existing heliports are present in the scenery: Army’s Heliport at the east of the airport Marina’s Heliport close to Ornos beach Superior Air heliport close to Kalo Livadi beach Three characteristic landmarks have been added to the scenery: Windmills at Mykonos town Broken windmill at the south of the airport (close to the Terminal) A lighthouse at the north of the island
  9. I am sorry, simply will not happen as there are absolutely no chance to break-even on a project like that. Sales for any P3D add-on are simply gone. While we do understand there are still a LOT of P3D users, there are not a lot of P3D customers. As always, we follow where the customers are.
