  1. Wayne, I couldn't agree more. Such is this age of entitlement which seems to be spreading across society like an invasive, aggressive cancer - and it no longer seems to be confined to the millennial generation. This obsession of ours, in its many forms, is a fee for service industry, be it goods, cloud storage, etc. The attitude of some either shows a lack of willingness to pay for those (upgraded) goods, or a total lack of understanding of the cost of running these businesses or services...and let's not even mention the concept of fair use policy just as long as they can have as much as they want and have it all for nothing. Yet, if someone was to take from them, or ask them to do something for free, they would scream like a cut cat - indirectly, they seem to expect others who are willing to pay, to support them. People can always throw up the argument that they have paid for the goods already and this is an upgrade, but the cost of work associated with the upgrade was never included in the original cost of the goods. How quickly they forget that when we migrated from one version of MSFS to another we had to repurchase those products that were no longer compatible. The age old idiom of "Put up or shut up." couldn't be more appropriate in this age of entitlement. Cheers Andrew
  2. It's always easy to blame Carenado without understanding the background. In the case of Carenado's X-Plane models, I understand it is not so much Carenado themselves but the individual developer (a subcontractor and not a Carenado employee) who does all their X-Plane conversions. It is he who is insisting on charging Carenado for the work and Carenado are within their rights to pass that cost on. I guess that is just one of the many "costs" of going with a flight sim version which does not have a high uptake rate in the community, regardless.
  3. Milviz have finally come to their senses and are no longer charging customers a $5.00 fee to upgrade their Milviz products to P3D V4. All customers who have already paid this fee will be refunded. Now, all other major third party add-on developers were quick to announce some time back that upgrades of their respective products to P3D V4 would be free. So I wonder how long it took Milviz to realise they were about the only major third party add-on developer to be hitting their loyal customer base with this charge, a charge, by all accounts, their competitors thought was unreasonable. I mean, really, what were Milviz thinking?
  4. That's one foot more than I've got.
  5. Have a look at this. No idea what it's like because I just did a simple Google search.
  6. Not amused, now just finding this topic extremely boring because it's been over done ad nauseum and it appears you don't understand when enough is beyond ridiculous. Your disorder is your problem, now ours, but unfortunately you seem to think it's OK to subject us to it. You might want to try researching "taking the piss" (the real deal, not the celebrity version) and understanding at which point in this thread responses to your posts were doing exactly that. Have a nice day.
  7. But you do.
  8. Hmmm, all very novel, but that's about all right now. It's nice that Anton thinks electric drives will become irreplaceable in aviation, of course he does, he has to justify his existence and wants to keep his job. You can have the "greenies" screaming for green energy ad nauseum and dreaming about emissions targets, etc., etc., ad infinitum, but only one thing will drive this, demand, and that demand will be driven by cost, and when it's cheaper than the current option, hey, it might even fly. Oh, and none of us here will even care when it does, because we will no longer exist. For now though, it's not much more than an ostrich wearing a Samsung VR headset thinking it can fly. However, as far as this goes, I think my batteries just ran flat.
  9. At least it's fixed...thank pigeon for that.
  10. I'll take it. Can I get it customised with twin chrome exhaust stacks and double overhead foxtails?
  11. BeeJay, It's at least five years old...give it a total miss.
  12. BeeJay, Apologies for the dot points but it is the easiest way to summarise the ATWC: circumnavigates the world; broken into sectors, with a series of flight legs of varying distances per sector; some legs have restrictions, typically aircraft type, by MTOW; sectors are released in stages and pilots bid for a flight leg on a first come, first serve basis; pilots fly the flight leg and submit a PIREP in the Forum as a pictorial; the pictorial can follow an imaginary storyline, these are often the best type; when a sector is complete, the next sector is released and bidding for the flight legs is opened; we try and organise the final flight as a multi player session, normally scheduled for a Sunday morning, GMT/UTC; for the multi player session, flight sim type is somewhat irrelevant, as there is a host application, JoinFS, which we use for the connection; and JoinFS has been used by the MH Crew for multi player sessions using different MSFS and P3D versions. Final planning is almost complete and more event specific details will be released in the coming weeks. Cheers Andrew
  13. Thank goodness for was really starting to get to me.
  14. So, given that you are crashing regularly, is not creating the scenario and then saving it before you start flying an option. Then all you have to do is load the saved scenario. I'm currently not sitting in front of my flight simming computer, however, I'm pretty certain, P3D has the ability to save scenarios.
  15. Martin, As you have done with my post above, you quoted your original post, hence causing the unnecessary duplication. I have removed it for you. Andrew
