  1. nice post, you must of new somehow I was looking at your Worldwid HD Airports, bang downloading now.....cheers..
  2. good advise there Joe, Chillblast have some great stuff and quite a few on here have bought from them, I don't as I build my own....I say buy what you can afford, todays overkill could be out of date in 6 months, your specs in the OP look good to me.....
  3. hah, great humour Matt love it......
  4. sounds good to me, but I am sure someone else with a more modern system will chime in, I have an i5 6600k with 16gig RAM linked to an old GTX 970 card and it runs P3D and XP11 very well so you should be fine.......
  5. at the moment Lucy I believe waiting is the best policy, I got it for free but I really wouldn't have paid for it in its current state... ATC no sound, lots of people with that issue, close sim and start again usually fixes it... Contols profiles not saving, not had this but again lots have and it's a pain.... trees everywhere, my city looks like a village in a forest, and Bristol isn't that small... If Dovetail listen and go through a good period of updates then this could be ok, but like you said, and so many others have to, we have invested in lots of addons that are not going to work in this so to make the break this needs to be spot on, currently it's not, it looks poor and they trumpet 64bit as the big thing, well my P3D is 32bit but looks so much better, my XP is 64bit but you can still have low fps as the 64bit only really deals with OOM issues.... I wouldn't be surprised if a weekend soon it's available on Steam very cheaply to get the numbers up.....
  6. @mutley @brett Joe that was indeed very useful, I really didn't think of that.....I watched a vid that Rob Ainscough had posted, the sopunds were amazing....Brett I really like flying the Bus with all it's tech and I am still amazed at how I just end up where I should be, however a lot of the flight is spent monitoring, now in XP I have been using PMDG's DC6, that is a really nice in depth AC and I have enjoyed that to....This one I think with the added Accusim and COS could be just as good to.....I really like to change it up a bit and have a good variety now between my 2 main sims.... Thanks both for your help, I think this will be a treat I probably get myself at the weekend, it's a Bank Holiday and instead of towing my caravan I will be holding a paintbrush so I think by the end of the weekend I will have earned this one...
  7. nice, great looking area, can't beat getting to know some people with a nice steamy mug of coffee.....
  8. nice one, toying with REX HD Airports but it has mixed reviews, nearly bought Scotland from ORBX but I don't think they take paypal anymore....
  9. no go on this then...so tempted but just not 100% sure....wanted to know more on how the COS worked with regards to flight choice etc.....
  10. Bit late to this, damn internet.....some great shots in your earlier post...now I don't care much for VR but that flight in that really slow low craft would be ideal for VR.... great read and fantastic scenery.....
  11. @mutley @allardjd ok so thanks for your replays, just checked and all is pointing to exactley the same reading, GPS, HDG BUG and across the top of the screen.. I also have only just put P3D back onto my system so it didn't actuaslly go through any Navdata update. I have never really understood the need to update unless the sim is the same as the real world, was advised to update for XP11 something to do with the Airbus but don't understand why, nothing changes in sim unlike real world however as XP11 was new I thought I had better..... So still none the wiser why this has happened but I will keep an eye on it.... @dodgy-alan yep Hampshire one, EGLF....any reason ? @OzWookiee ORBX- GLOBAL BASE - VECTOR - OPENLC EU - ENGLAND, ASN, REX 4 TD & SOFT CLOUDS, A2A AIRCRAFT.....
  12. nearly at the delivery point....
  13. nice one Matt, I particularly like the last one, is that the customer waiting in the dress?.....
  14. Hi all, looking for some feedback on this one, I have read some reviews and watched some videos but still unsure, have you got it? worth the money? Let me know please, I would be using it for P3D..... Thanks Wayne
  15. So we now have P3D running I think quite nicely, started a new company in AH2, past my TR and got the first job, just a quick run across to Farnborough with some tools...been having an internet issue (changing provider in a couple of weeks) so had to manually set some weather as I couldn't download real weather....really enjoyed this short one it felt good to be flying instead of installing, and there's a lesson to us all try to fly more and not tweak so much......uneventful trip but on both TR and this the ILS seemed to be taking me slightly to the right of the runway, hand flew in though so all was good, not sure if thats an ORBX thing or Navdata, any suggestions? flying quite low with these clouds.. seems to be clearing here... correcting the ILS error... a nice bit of fun was had....it's good to be back.....
