  1. Loads of free stuff

    The Prepar3D V4 Addon Organizer is a utility every P3D4 user should have.... Enables you to manage scenery lib and addon.xml addons in a truly integrated fashion - and helps build addon.xml files for legacy scenery that you want to keep out of the sim folder structure Highly recommended!
  2. P3D carrier ops

    Im surprised no-one else has tried carrier based flying. I got the VRS F18 superbug yesterday and am considering signing myself up for an avionics course - its seriously impressive. Only had one go at putting her down on a carrier deck so far, its tough
  3. REX announce Sky Force 3D

    well I bought it anyway so I'll have a shufty and see the difference
  4. P3D carrier ops

    Only because I was intrigued by the VRS Superbug being released for P3Dv4, I started delving into the murky world (or ocean) of sim carrier ops. I found a few wonderful pieces of art vis a vis carriers... http://simworksstudios.com/products/navy/uss-midway-cv-41/ http://www.flightsimstore.com/product_info.php?products_id=3618 (Team SDB are I'm told expecting an update to the 32 bit RFN Tacan gauge used for some advanced carrier features to a 64bit version shortly) https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/2618/fsx-aircraft-carrier-uss-nimitz/ Aircraft.. https://www.vrsimulations.com/superbug.php - Alleged by a former F18 pilot to be a study level a/c esp the avionics https://www.aerosoft.com/en/fsxp3d/flight-simulator-x-steam/aircraft/1776/f-14-extended http://indiafoxtecho.blogspot.co.uk/ - T45, F-14D, S-3B A 64bit updated vLSO for P3Dv4 http://vlso.blogspot.co.uk/2017/12/vlso-v1001.html And some upcoming new features for SWS CEX: Anyone here done any carrier ops? Cheers K
  5. REX announce Sky Force 3D

    I dont know Joe, we need an in depth review to be sure!! K
  6. REX announce Sky Force 3D

    Cheers Joe, For me I'm hearing about weather redraws (something which AS appeared to have eliminated or reduced considerably), weather radar compatibility and how many of the SF3D features actually require use of their internal weather engine to work. As I understand it now, reports are indicating great cloud representations, but immersion busting weather redraws, wxr incompatibilities with PMDG etc (there are others as well, be interested to see how other study-level aircraft fare?) and having read the manual quite a few of the 'lesser' functions requiring the REX weather engine to work (p64,66,67,68).

  7. REX announce Sky Force 3D

    Is anyone reviewing this please? Seeing conflicting initial reports coming back on this? Cheers K
  8. FSX Power Project v4.3 soon to be released.

    Excellent news Ray thanks! Hope your health stays good, merry christmas to you and your family FSXPP is a must have addon for me. I'm particularly pleased re the updated effects (I disabled them after suffering precisely the problem you described at EGGP) Kevin
  9. be excited, be very very excited - its an awesome aircraft
  10. I'd like to see him just use the available tools and development paths that other renowned scenery developers do, but that's probably unrealistic as he'd have to relearn so much about how to do them that way I suspect... maybe not - I don't know? I think the best we can expect realistically is what we're getting now, if it evolves into something better the beers are on me next year at Cosford. Here's hoping I get to pay out! Gary doesn't HAVE to do any sceneries, and like you say, the queue of other developers lining up to do max quality UK airfields is NOT huge. OrbX were a decent hope but they abandoned the UK project. I suspect it might have to be to do with so many UK flightsimmers being old and tight with their cash - I can say that I'm from Yorkshire We can say what we like, but ultimately what determines airports getting built is both demand and potential return on investment. Neither seems to be attractive for the UK I'm afraid.
  11. Cosford Show 2017 video

    Agreed on both counts
  12. Hear hear, but the point is he's finishing his FSX project of all the UK airports, then moving on, as I understand. Updating to the latest and greatest isn't his grand plan. Chris, the end for that sim was 10 years ago mate!
  13. In terms of pure quality yes, but reading Gary's forums there's a lot of people there who are happy with what he does and it suits their sim and system. If his user and customer base isn't collectively demanding more, he can hardly be blamed for giving them what they want
  14. I've not heard anything from them for over a year. They've not worked on any scenery for longer than that I believe. I came round with my daughter Eillithia again, but she was very tired and grumpy. When we came past you the stand was very busy and you were talking to some people - we did steal a chocolate though Eillithia also had a problem with the mainly older male attendees, as she was unfortunately shoved around and had her view blocked quite a lot. Not one of the people there showed her any real consideration at all really which made it not fun for either of us. We went and spent most of our time in the museum where it was less crowded and she could see things without being barged out of the way
