  1. Great pics, but doesn't it give you the sh1ts when Object Flow, usually on payware airports happily drives vehicles through your taxiing aircraft. Makes my heart stop when it is a tanker, in the RW we would all be incinerated. Here at least it is just bullsh1t.

  3. Sorry mate, I really put my foot in it. I am not a softie, these jobs are essential, the tasks heroic, and essential in our modern form of warfare that is without 'fronts'. I referred to the film, which I found compelling, but as I have said I found the beginning very challenging. Because of that, I felt driven to make my comment, but I shall never refer to it again..but to avoid my being at fault in this, you did choose to identify yourself in this way. Nuff said.
  4. Sniper 31, the start to that film was horrifying, too terrible for me to use as a handle. However, I agree with your viewpoint, why else is the community drooling over Innsbruck, and we all think ESSA is outstanding by all measures. However, I have checked, and the FlyTampa version is for P3D. By the way, we love Honolulu and have been to the Arizona twice.
  5. And not a bad commercial Munich is available. Jarad, what on earth more can you add to this, release, release...
  6. JV: I started all this, and I am content with your very helpful replies. Putting aside the usual simmers impatience for NOW, I am happy to wait for SP5 and a paid upgrade is reasonable. But like TC and some others I am approaching 80, so I am running out of years, so 2018 is still a risk. Don't be late. I'm with KDK, I would like to see Wellcamp in there, a great exercise in free enterprise and risk-taking. Your Melbourne and Brisbane are great for their years, but in spite of the fact there are commercial competitors, could you commission someone to do Sydney - YSSY?
  7. ps Spud, my shot was taken just NW of Cunnamulla in western Queensland, on a Sydney-Hong Kong flight.
  8. I do have the SP4, but as I like to do transcontinental flights, then these changes seem quite abrupt still. I could replicate the shot above, but it is worth pointing out that the vegetation on the watercourses is very repetitive and in make up a pattern that is more than a little stilted. However, I am only asking for an LC update for Australia, and will continue to start long-haul flights from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane nevertheless.
  9. Teecee, look at this. Abrupt boundaries that do not exist in reality, repetitive tiles on watercourse, rectangular and square water bodies in places. This is a boundary between two of the four original regions produced by Orbx, and to me it just looks 'stitched' together.
  10. Teecee, but some of the boundaries between the first four "zones" look like they were sewn together with a wool bag needle nd twine. hwh86, I agree. We are using a good but amateur YPAD, and if Orbx could commission a single developer to create a quality payware airport our money would be there. Yet ESSA among others shows us Orbx can commission and insist on quality.
  11. Teecee, I am glad to hear this. Does your source have any hint of the time-scale? I suspect Orbx Europe for v4 is the priority.
  12. While I salivate over Innsbruck, hang for P3D v4, I am sad for Australia. No doubt because of market realities, it is sad to see Australia languishing. We need an entirely new full-fat land class, and YMML and YBBN need updating and a polish. This is where it all started, but now the market has left us far behind. JV relent a little.
  13. I can do no other and join the chorus of rave responses. It is brilliant and RTM is hard to wait for.
  14. I understand markets, profit, return on investment...and a software scenery building company for flight simulation needs to be very careful I know.... But... Is there any chance of new LC for Australia? ? ?
  15. Adam: I grew up in Nelson, and loved its presentation on your site. Will be in Auckland Sunday, may try to call and thank you personally. Next week, RMS Queen Elizabeth, Auckland Paihia Sydney.
