  1. I prefer this presentation ๐Ÿ˜› Can I have a "Topic war starter" subtitle ? ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿคฃ
  2. AFS2 going officially out of BETA ! https://www.aerofly.com/community/forum/index.php?thread/13135-major-update-moves-out-of-beta/ https://steamcommunity.com/games/434030/announcements/detail/1688170119245822677 The update is available. Vulkan has made its first steps into the code thought, ALL PLANES now have switches/ sounds fordirect interactions, a lot has been made to enhance/ update all systems (20+ pages for the A320's FMD as an example), new alerts, new failures etc ! The list is too long so just head up to their site / Steam for further informations. Just know, about my above statement : the Robinson R22 didn't make it in this specific update.
  3. Is it on sale at FlightSim Store ? ๐Ÿ˜ˆ Sorry, I'm out ๐Ÿ˜›
  4. FSElite is posting about that specific too : https://fselite.net/news/flightsim-store-down-products-unavailable-to-download/ and https://fselite.net/news/current-situation-with-flightsim-store/

    prepar3d / fsx FSX SpacePort

    Mmm interresting, but will I reinstall FSX ?
  6. IPACS was cruelly absent from last shows like Vegas, and we had very little news from the (small) team. But they do work hard : just saw that from Steam : I will add that we heard (from Helisimmer during a recent "3 Grumpy simmers" episode), the incoming arrival of a new type of aircraft in AFS2 : helicopters ! Well at least the 1st one : an R22 that has been tested and verified by a well known heli pilot Claude Bouchard.

    real-world Just a thanks to all

    I remember some old time of The Lounge, flying the C337 with you Noodle was a great learning curve for my flight skills, Edson shared so much about how to configure my sim, and I flew so many miles following Sparky around the world, just to mention (and thanks !) you three...
  8. Pretty crusty informations about PACX in this interview...
  9. Guys, I know news are scarce recently ๐Ÿ˜‚ But... Now fight for the best topic ๐Ÿ˜Ž #
  10. Man it's so obvious the guy posted his update right after TFDi announced his stuff... That is a really crappy move (and I wanted to show it by posting this news !), but I stiil have some "affection" for the old cow FSPassengers that gave me really a lot to do at the time. As Edson said, the ball has been rolling nicely for a time, then he got submerged and just disappeared... Whatever he did, or didn't, we will need some comparison between softs soonTM

  13. The famous addon FSPassengers is finally getting some fresh news from its lonely developer. It has been a hard work for him to rewrite the whole program to 64 bit compatibility, but he is getting there eventually, an ETA is between september and Christmas. FSPassengers have been available for FSX and 32 bit P3D since a whole lot of time, and a great companion for any passenger flight, bringing an ambiance aboard your plane with passengers sound as soon as boarding till leaving the plane (they will react to bad treatments๐Ÿ˜), jokes from the navigating personnel, some stuff to do during long flights (you choose meal servicing/ film choices), other small things like very effective shortcuts for autopilot/ radios, a carrier mode way before any other competitor actually too, etc... My only regret is the time it took SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : http://www.fspassengers.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=18097&pid=165757#pid165757
  14. FSPassengers used to be a very good product, but the developper seems to have his head overwhelmed, it is taking him a fair amount of time to get his product updated to V4 (and his release date is very close to a probale V5 !). Not surprised to see some competition coming along... Actually there are news ! I made a topic ๐Ÿ˜›
