  1. I hope I'm not too late... Is there anywhere I can get the 'Ibiza X' version that's compatible with FS9? Thanks in advance for the help...
  2. My whole Fjords area in lower Alaska is screwed up (see pic). Is there anything in Aerosoft's PANC that would cause this problem in lower Fjords area of Alaska?
  3. Actually didn't notice that but I'll post my suggestion there... Looks like a thread where my suggestion could get buried never to be heard from again... Thx...
  4. I know Aerosoft does mostly European airports but for the sake of the major airline manufacture rivalry plus this is Flight Simulation after all, it would be nice if both Airbus and Boeing's airfields were done in great detail. Just a suggestion. We have one down one to go...

    Auckland???

    I should have put an FS9 tag in my original message. Scenery usually not a problem crossing over from FSX to FS9 so I hope an FS9 version is an option along with the FSX rendition. The good thing for the FSX crowd is at least the airport is covered in FSX's default library. In FS9 it's not detailed at all...

    Auckland???

    Since this airport has never been done in detail in Flight Simulator's 20 year history I thought I'd suggest it to Aerosoft.
  7. I thought Outerra was awesome but there's other base engines out there that blow FSX, Flight, and X-Plane away. Aerosoft can make a killing building a sim with these base engines....
  8. I don't know about anyone else but this is outstanding work. I would love to see what you would do with an airport/area like ZBAA in China. The Peking China area in general in FS is pathetic to say the least. The vast city doesn't even extend to and around the airport grounds. Seeing how your doing Bangkok Suvarnabhumi your not only doing the airport but adding the extras around the airport that makes the area look realistic. ZBAA needs something like this should you ever decide to tackle it (no one else seems to be interested)... Just thought I'd mention this as I'm impressed with the ex
  9. I'm seeing the same thing. This just started a few days ago. Before that everything was fine (will I just started back to using the PMDG 744F although I didn't notice a problem before).
  10. Thanks so much, this file worked...
  11. For some reason after my install of Amsterdam in FS9 I'm still seeing the default terminals and taxiway signs of the default scenery displaying in conjunction with Aerosoft's rendition. Am I missing an exclude file somewhere???
  12. ActiveSky Advanced, REX for FS9, and Flight1's Ground Environment Pro is not that expensive especially if you live in Europe these days (What are we talking here 15 Euros at the most per product including FS9?). The exchange rate today makes a developer like Ariane's products a bargain if your trading in Euros. Speaking of FS9 Freeware the greatest efforts in this area as of late has to be in the area of AI planes and utilities. A package like WAI is almost priceless considering it's ease of use compared to a comparable payware product like Ultimate Traffic. The ease of punching in and
  13. I perfectly agree you can't find customers buying boxes but what about downloads, you never talk about that... Mathijs I don't know for the life of me why you keep touting such an archaic form of distribution to justify FSX and moving away from FS9. Your arguments are valid for the most part but much of the sim world has equally embraced downloads as an alternative to boxed products along time ago. The lack of sales for solid media has nothing to do with FS9 but rather the speed of internet connections. I haven't bought a boxed copy of anything FS related in over 15 years... I can't go
  14. I plan on getting a new machine a year and a half from now exclusivly for FSX now that hardware has caught up (i7 machines). Just the same I really hope Aerosoft can deliver on their simulator.
  15. Well in my neck of the woods FSX is not to be found anywhere especially for $39.95. Speaking of the 'bargain Bin' that seems to be the trend with any title more than a year or two old (how old is FSX now?). The purpose is to get the product out of the store to make way for new titles. So it's not a stretch depending on the store to see FSX or FS9 in a bin at reduced prices. FS9 for the record is mostly to be had online these days...
  16. Let's break this down in points: 1. Last I checked (can't give you exact numbers because that's against policy) Feelthere's sales for FS9 beat out FSX sales for the last few projects. There's a few developers I know a little more info on concerning sales and what Aerosoft is reporting is skewed in FSX's favor to say the least... Reminds me of a great quote, "Who cares what anyone thinks? It's what you know that interests" and I know FS9 add-ons are selling more than some are admitting. Now if we are talking GA then FSX sales may surpass FS9 but for Heavy airplanes/scenery it's either neck
  17. The Airsimmer effort is wishful thinking because I know how far the Leonardo Maddog has come. I owned it's first incarnation called the Lago Maddog which for me was a big disappointment. I bought the various versions of the Maddog over the 5+ years of it's existence without a VC. It wasn't until this last version released little over a year that it finally reached it's full potential. Now I would consider it the greatest hardcore add-on ever released. And again like I said to debunk 'Timo's' claim it beats out anything yet released for FSX (even the PMDG MD11). The FS9 Leonoardo Maddog be
  18. Here's a break down of the add-ons I mentioned above: Leonardo's Maddog was not created for FSX originally but it was ported over. The final build of the Maddog for FS9 was released in 2008 which was after FSX's release. After the FS9 final release it was ported over to FSX. Seeing it's an FS9 add-on it runs better in FS9 versus FSX. The Captainsim 757 concept which eventually turned into the FSX 767. The original 757 was released after FSX hit the market. Little changed outside of eye candy with the FSX 767. I work for Feelthere so I can tell you the FSX and FS9 versions of the E
  19. Most FSX freeware is lower than that because there's hardly any and none of any significance... FSX is a payware platform from beginning to end. Comments like 'Timo's' deserve a couple more shots. Like I said add-ons like Leonardo's Maddog, Feelthere's E-Jet Series/ERJv2, and Eaglesoft's Citation X blows comments like this out the water. Take away those add-ons and just apply REX for FS9 with results like the pics I've attached below ends the discussion. There's reasons people use both sims but when FS9 can look like this for no more than three extra add-ons (Activesky Advanced, Flight1'
  20. Without the budding talent of the FS9 freeware guys today the future of development for FSX would be severly limited (developers creating todays FSX add-ons won't be around forever). We will always need a platform accessible enough for those starting out, FS was always about this... Another thing that's a fact is the new advancements still being accomplished in FS9 is nothing to sneeze at. The big question is how many developers went out of business after the release of FSX? Another question is how big of an impact did the split in the FS market affect the community as a whole and the freq
  21. I know where Aerosoft is on this but I find it amazing that FS9 still tops all freeware downloads even on the first day of 2010 on all FS related sites. Those that create for the love of the hobby are in droves still creating for FS9 over FSX. It's an ongoing trend that even I didn't think would sustain itself past 2009 but here we are in 2010 and this is still the case. On all FS sites since FSX's release 3+ years ago it has been very rare (if at all) that daily downloads on all FS related sites hasn't been more in favor FS9 by 2 to 1 margins over FSX. This is not to sway any views at Aer
  22. Just thought I'd through in a great location with the best inner city park system in the world into the pool of suggestions as or future consideration. One of the US's northern most cities which spawned such talent as Bob Dylan, Prince, and Charlie Brown (or the creator that is). So hopefully this little bug in the ear is considered (heck if Indy was considered anything's possible)... Great work guys on the scenery that's been produced so far...
  23. Guess I'll have to add Minneapolis and Prince's studio to the mix. Atlanta would be great as well... I'll piggy back off of this post and say it would be awesome if you guys really did the Hollywood hills with some of the more prominent mansions. Santa Monica Pier and the various well known movie studios in the Burbank area. Studios like Universal, Warner Brothers, Disney, and Paramount would look awesome built up in this area... LA/Burbank would be an awesome area to really showcase this concept... For the record I'm still an FS9er but something like this would give me something t
  24. Any chance of an FS9 version???
