  2. News! - Released : VVVD - VAN DON International Airport, Vietnam by Taimodels Now you don't get a lot of payware releases from Asia, but I don't think there was ever before a release from Vietnam for X-Plane. That has certainly got to be an interesting destination. And the airport is positioned near the famous ha long bay, which is UNESCO world heritage site. Located on the coast of Quảng Ninh, Van Don International Airport covers an area of 325 ha (800 acres) and contains one single runway: Runway 03/21: 3,600 m × 45 m (11,811 ft × 148 ft) with

  4. Hi i have a question about the SAM plugin. Will you at some point add SAM jetways to the scenery? And if it's SAM compatible the jetways don't move. Thanks have a nice day!
  5. Translation: Any idea when this will be written for plan X 11.30b4? or even 11.26 stable? I really need this to be VR ready for me to buy this. It also needs to be integrated with the different flight modeling techniques of the x-plane 11 to make it 100%. Or am I too ready for that? To be honest nobody knows what conex (developer) is doing at the moment? his Bell 407 has been updated to XP11, but most of his helios are now seriously out of date? the best link is too this thread: The Unofficial FAQ for XP10 DreamFoil Creations AS350 B3+ in XP11
  6. My role as a reviewer is to review as a third-party and without prejudice. A purchaser has the right to expect a product of quality, performance and an appropriate level of accuracy and quality for their financial investment. Finally I would never reject a developer's comment, or reasonable doubt.
  7. I didn’t say you shouldn’t say it as you see it nor ignore, in fact I say the complete opposite. All I suggested was that getting and including feedback from developers. Yes some developers are bull headed, many not though. On this review ‘I love the scenery’ yes I can see that in the summary. However getting to the summary is the problem. Your language on the flaws is pretty strong and overwhelms the mid portion of the review. You allow feedback on your site but you tend to be as bull headed as the developers in rejecting comments. All I suggested was whether developer inp
  8. The idea of reviewing is to point out the positives and the negatives, or like in this case the obvious. If you don't then the developer will just continue on going along their merry way and not improving their product or skills. Most times I do draw up a list of issues and send it to the developer as that is my job, in the fact of making the product get the best chance of good sales. But if the developer ignores your comments or has a reason for an action then that is fine, but some developers can be simply very bull headed about their work... our goal is always the purchaser. That said in th
  9. An interesting review and as you say a location that is useful for short over water flights. Also the stock airport isn’t much to get excited about. While I do understand not wanting developer influence on the review I do wonder if in cases like this some discussion with the developer might be useful. For example was the decision about the poor beyond the airport work perhaps driven by performance factors? Some developers are no doubt better at balancing the performance of their sceneries and others may need to take more drastic action. Of course that doesn’t change the fact that y
  10. News! - Update : Toliss Airbus A319 v1.5.2 This is an update to bring the (Baby Bus) Airbus A319-100 by ToLiSS up to the same configuration and complete the updates to the same level as the ToLiSS A321. This is NOT the coming NEO (New Engine Option) version, that is coming very soon as an addon package, although this version will be required for that NEO option when the package is released. Changelog list (below) is simply HUGE!. Changes from build 1250 (V1.5.1) to build 1299 (V1.5.2) Major new features: - Option to use imperial units for FMGS, weights
  11. News! - Released : ESKN - Stockholm Skavsta Airport by MM Simulations MM Simulations have released their version of Sweden's Stockholm Skavsta Airport. Even if the actual airport is situated 100 kilometres (62 mi) southwest of Stockholm? But that should not take away a lot from the scenery, as any Scandinavian country is a worthwhile destination. Features: Accurately modeled terminal and interior Custom night lighting Custom parking positions matching with real life Custom surroundings
  12. News! - Update : Toliss A321neo v1.2.2 Only a few weeks ago ToLiSS updated their Airbus A321neo (New Engine Option) to version v1.2.1, but here quickly is another followup update to version v1.2.2. Here is the full list of changelog build 1295 (V1.2.1) to 1298 (V1.2.2): Minor new features: - A321 NEO now features the FLAP/MCDU and PITCH TRIM/MCDU DISAGREE caution messages - FMGS can now compute predictions across discontinuities Bug fixes: - Engine Fire now also works with engine at idle - When performing a DIR TO with Radial
  13. It is a nice aircraft but I do not agree with your assessment of the flight dynamics. In my opinion the flight dynamics are poor. It is overpowered on ground. The aircraft is very unstable especially in pitch. Elevator trim is exaggerated. Performance might be correct according to the numbers but flight behaviour is very nervous. I do not have any experience flying the real aircraft but I dare to say that it should no behave like this. In other words, nice eye candy, poor flight model.

  15. Scenery Review : MYNN - Lynden Pindling International Bahamas by RWY26Sim Lynden Pindling International Airport, known as LPIA, was formerly known as Nassau International Airport (1957–2006), and MYNN is the largest airport in the Bahamas and the largest international gateway into the country. It is a major hub for Bahamasair and Western Air and is located in western New Providence island near the capital city of Nassau. The airport is named after Lynden Pindling, the first prime minister of the Bahamas and the airport is located about 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) west of the city centre
  16. News! - X-Crafts show new E-Jets Family renders There is always debate around of what developers should develop, some developers create different and varied aircraft, but a few stay on the same designs and focus just on that design.... a good thing or a bad thing? Like I said it is debatable. X-Crafts have focused a lot on the Embraer series of E-Jets, and we are going back as far as August 2014 (announced as early as May 2013) with X-Crafts release of their first E-Jet in the ERJ 195LR. Since then there have a lot of numerous updates to this basically dat
  17. I think the float strut geometry is off - not allowing the wing to present a good angle to the relative wind.
  18. News! - Scenery Release : LGSM Samos International Airport by Skyline Simulations Skyline Simulations have released another European airport after Gibraltar, this time of Samos in the Greek Islands. Samos is a Greek island in the eastern Aegean Sea, south of Chios, north of Patmos and the Dodecanese, and off the coast of western Turkey, from which it is separated by the 1.6-kilometre (1.0 mi)-wide Mycale Strait. Note this scenery is a big 6.8Gb file (3.84Gb Download), so it does take up fair bit of storage space. Features: UHD Custom
  19. Did I do that!... yes I did, dumb and dumber, shows how long it has been out of the water.... actually it didn't make much difference as I ran it again, rudders up? This is at the final set of buoys, still only nudging 60 knts?
  20. Oh oh - points off - retract water rudders before takeoff 🙂. I had all of Frank's mountains back in FSX but something seems different now with the XP stuff. His freeware Yosemite is a classic
  21. News! - Update : Tecnam P2006T Project by vSkyLabs vSkyLabs have done a very significant update to their Tecnam P2006T Project. The update list is very long and detailed so this is quite a big step forward. Here's the full list of v7.0 (build 2021) Features: Build 2021 (v7.0) 14th January 2021: Flight Dynamics: Thorough flight model validation for aircraft performance, throughout flight envelope regimes. Systems: Systems overhaul (both versions). Operational trim switches (G100
  22. Great that MXI has set out to produce small Swiss airports. I had previously purchased LSZB Bern. Am super satisfied and can only recommend them.
  23. Scenery Review : Banff National Park UHD by Frank Dainese and Fabio Bellini Some people never seem to go to bed... just weeks after their amazing K2 - Karakorum 3D, Frank Dainese and Fabio Bellini have now released another epic scenery that covers the Banff National Park in Western Canada. Banff National Park (French: Parc national Banff) is Canada's oldest national park, established in 1885. And is located in Alberta's Rocky Mountains, and situated 110–180 kilometres (68–112 mi) west of Calgary, Banff encompasses 6,641 square kilometres (2,564 sq mi) of mountainous te
  24. News! - Scenery Release : LSZS - Engadin Airport by MXI A mostly Turkish focused developer has changed countries to do a scenery in Switzerland, or specifically LSZS-Engadin Airport (as known locally as Samedan Airport). Engadine is a long high Alpine valley region in the eastern Swiss Alps in the canton of Graubünden in southeastern Switzerland and situated only 5 km from St Moritz. At an elevation of 1,707 metres (5,600 ft), it is the highest airliner airport in Europe (with Courchevel being the highest for STOL aircraft only). It is also considered one of the most
  25. Yes I do list all computer specifications, plugins and used sceneries (or aircraft if it is a scenery review) at the bottom of the review unless it is an update or news item? BTW You missed the FlightFactor A320U, massive hit is that one...
