  1. Better with the actual link, isn't it ? https://www.turbulentdesigns.co.uk/kgpi-glacier-park-international-airport-now-beta/
  2. When it is available, it will be the 1st "official freeware plane" for Flight Sim World ! Gibbage has been working for some months on this STOL bush plane that we could describe as "a trike Eurofox-like". Kevin Miller, also known as Gibbageart, was involved in the Icon A5, Boeing Stirman and Maule M7 from Ms Flight, We certainly expect a high level of quality on his final product Textures are still WIP. Here is a video of the maiden dev flight. Flight model and sounds are still WIP. SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://www.facebook.com/Gibbageart-1253240048091646/
  3. Important to know is that the former versions of the Quest kodiak by Thranda already had a G1000 build in, that is the Carenado one. And it is eating frames !!! Besides, the Laminar Research G1000 is very FPS friendly. I also find that it's clearer to read. Both GPS doesn't have exactly the same level of functionnalities, but the LR one is growing with every update, and is almost in par with the Carenado one already. It's why Thranda decided to remove the G1000 Carenado support. This choice is making the Kodiak one of the best PT6 engine I know of on X-Plane 11, with a high degree of realism and a really great plane to be in and fly...
  4. SimHeaven, famous site for X-Plane users offering a lot of free libraries/ autogens/ landmarks etc for your hand made orthosceneries, has almost finished a staggering autogen for Europe ! LINK TO SOURCE : http://simheaven.com/x-europe-on-final-approach/
  5. According to Rush from ASDG, there has been some misunderstanding between the x-Plane .org store, and the plane is now on that store. And has got right now (and NOT FOR LONG !) a surprise sale for a short time. There is some action and debate around that move, Rush has a stream just about it right now : https://www.twitch.tv/aerosimgaming Anyway, you will not see that price for that plane again !!!

  6. Time to look back a last time, and talk about the future Oh and those floats were for the SuperCub LINK TO SOURCE : https://forums.dovetailgames.com/threads/2017-in-review-stephen-hood.2895/
  7. Dovetail Games has just released their 1st SDK iteration for FSW, and the 1st "not GA" plane (from BlueSKY FS) with the P40 Warhawk. Stephen Hood posted on their blog to get us informed of the studio's future, and as a conclusion mention that : LINK TO SOURCE : https://live.dovetailgames.com/live/flight-sim-world/articles/article/sdk-p-40f-warhawk-available-now
  8. If you are a (lucky) Reality XP's GTN 650 and 750 user in X-Plane, you may be a bt frustrated that there are so few compatible planes. A friend of mine, Bourrinopathe, has been creating mods for this particular stuff.He already made some mods for the edfalut (REP enhanced) C172, for the Cirrus jet, for the Supercub, some Carenados, and more GA planes. You can write his work in the Avsim forum LINK TO SOURCE : https://www.avsim.com/forums/forum/772-rxp-gtn-750650-touch/

    xplane AlpilotX HD Mesh v4 is out !

    Some pictures to compare the older V3 mesh to the new V4 one : https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipOtvwziJubBQ6GnH5MAc3Jnl5g8aQvvplJaEOiBs779C_i2zSnN7udbC8t_boY-GA?key=djVjdkl1RGJZZVdMTnlJXzdIRkYtazRkdGFkS3N3 Be aware that Papua New Guinea, some parts of Indonesia and some other regions are still not HD in V4.
  11. It's Christmas already Yesterday Aerobask made its Lancair Legacy FG (former payware) free, so let's stay in the free zone ! If you want crispier mountains, higher fidelity terrain elevations, if you are using orthophotos, or just if you want a little bit of real life fidelity to your sim, you will need a good base mesh. This is the v4 of the ever free (but you can donate !) HD Mesh from AlpilotX (which brought us extraordinary sceneries like NZ !). TL;DR : Do not think, just download it for your X-Plane 11 !

  12. Well, title self explanatory ! Founder's day sales get you a 25% rebate on any iBlueYonder's great sceneries ! Put a memo on your screen... I have the beautiful and very detailed Nantucket Island which was in sales during "black friday", gonna complete the collection... Come to papa, 100$ burgers LINK TO SOURCE : https://iblueyonder.com/

    dovetail P40 Warhawk coming soon for FSW

    Another video : trailer format
  16. The team at BlueSkyFS have been busy putting some polish on their incoming P40 for Flight Sim world, and they presented their plane (WIP) in a stream recently. Here is the video ! LINK TO SOURCE :
  17. I hope that their tech (extruding flat images into 3D) can somehow help in the simulation industry yes, that could be a game changer if well done
  18. Well, you also can see the numerous limitations : no weather, only certain times of the day depending on the photos, need to do something for the water to be actual water and just not textures, the trees are good from above, but can be awful at ground level, no traffic, elevation corrections and specific mesh, cost of satellite imagery and the need to edit a lot of it (clouds, etc), no night textures nor lighting from the texture, and so on. It is very impressive to look at, but don't forget what we can't see
  19. -20% off any Turbulent Design product till the end of december. Make the Terraflora pack, Idaho Falls or KMBS for less than 20£, Big Bear for 15.98£ and Angwin Parret for a pretty decent 5.99£ ! LINK TO SOURCE : https://www.turbulentdesigns.co.uk/
  20. $15.05 exactly to get your hand on some good IBlueYonder stuff ! Who could resist ? (not me...) Updated for P3D v4, compatible FSX to v4 LINK TO SOURCE : http://www.pcaviator.com/store/product.php?productid=21107
  21. Well many things you miss from a proper install : rain effects, some sounds off, textures not lit at certain places, dynamic lights not in effect, some "RealAir" special tricks not effective in 64 bits, etc etc.

    It will be nice in the next OrbX Netherlands !
  23. Well I was searching for an alternative to the only good thing left in FSCloud : the landing rate popup window... I understood that the window from the stream could not be seen by the streamers from TSL as what we see as viewers is not on the client side... I first went to Simbuddy, which is a kind of a hassle cause it want to start with your computer and uses a bunch of memory you don't need when not flying. I then stumbled on some scripts in Lua, that were not easy to configure depending on your ESP version. But there is an old + very stable + easy to use + free tool called simply Landing Rate Monitor. You just start the app before your flight, and if you have text messages inside sim activated, you'll get a line stating your stats at landing directly inside the sim. You also can have the app window on top. It also filters bounces from the real landing. LINK TO SOURCE : https://client.lrmlive.com/ Best thing about it : it works with any ESP flight sim ! FSX all versions, P3D all versions, without any setting !
  24. Aerofly FS 2 is a very good sim for certain people : those not wanting to mess with the settings (it is a pulg and play title, contrary to ESP !), those wanting a very high resolution with tons of FPS to go (90FPS on a 144hz monitor are the less you can expect !), and of course, it is still the best visual Vr experience in flight sim so far ! That said, I am quite surprised that the development of this title is said "gold", as there is still no real / decent weather engine, nor dynamic, the ATC is still in development, night lighings are not that good if you except the OrbX ones, no multiplayer solution, and many minor things that I don't remember right now... So if you decide to choose AFS2, please be aware what type of product you will get ! But hey, I would say that for ANY flight sim out there
  25. Hey guys, late topic, but I have made a promise to mister B ! Here it is : tips and tricks to add your P3D sceneries to FSW easily (on a per case basis, as some sceneries are not compatible with FSW like the UK2000's ones) 1st you have to locate and make a save of your FSW's scenery.cfg file. There are two of them : - C:\ProgramData\Dovetail Games\FSW\scenery.CFG - C:\Users\(yourname)\AppData\Roaming\Dovetail Games\FSW\scenery.CFG Then you can simply edit them with a notepad or similar tool. Here is an example where I integrate OrbX Vector (works like a charm) where my installed Vector is in P3D v4 on a F disk. You will notice I will only demonstrate with stuff that is already in use for another sim, as FSW is in development, it is noy very safe to do direct installations inside it :
