  3. Lionel confirmed the GA and BizJet Segment spilling over while sales numbers remain small. He supports other project holders in their ventures and may eventually look into a different segment himself. There were discussions on other forums. They havn't done a lot of market analyses before they started their projects in the past, it mainly came out of what they thought they like and tackled it. What sounds like a joke for you, maybe the start of a discussion, as developers sometimes need a hint from consumers into the right direction, nothing wrong about it. Laminar
  4. It is not a review but a "News!" release? I haven't actually looked at the scenery yet to do a review.
  5. Last week
  6. While as the review says a decent Madrid is overdue the preview shots of the scenery published a few weeks ago were not impressive including some lurid lime green areas. Even these screen captures look a little bright and burnt. Some of the detail like the red roof edging also looks very bold. Hopefully this isn’t an opportunity missed but the palette looks rather odd.
  7. News! - Scenery Release : Airport Madrid XP by Aerosoft The brand name on the packaging maybe Aerosoft, but this is all a Windsock Productions in a partnership with Sim-Wings, it is noted that this Madrid Barajas International Airport for X-Plane 11 scenery is a conversion of the Sim-Wing's Madrid International for the Prepar3D platform. Sim-wings presents the Airport Madrid with all buildings and service facilities for X-Plane 11. The aerial image covers a total surface of 400 km², and the detailed 3D models and animations bring the scenery to life.
  8. News! - Update Revealed : ToLiss A319 V1.6 and A321 V1.3 updates Boom! Boom!... and they keep on coming. ToLiss have only just done a round of updates to their excellent A319 and A321 Airbus aircraft, have already announced the next set of updates in A319 v1.6 and A321 v1.3 ToLiss notes that at first these update features will be for the A319, then the same for the A321 with a couple of undisclosed NEO specific additions for the A321 NEO (New Engine Option) variants. Changes from build 1299 (V1.5.2) to build XXX (V1.6) Major new features:
  9. News! - Scenery Release : PHJH- Kapalua Airport, Hawaii by NorthernSkyStudio NorthernSkyStudios has added in another Hawaiian scenery to match in with their already released Molokai and Kalaupapa airports with PHJH- Kapalua Airport. Kapalua Airport (PHJH ), also known as Kapalua–West Maui Airport, is a regional private use airport on the west side of the island of Maui in Hawaii. It is located five nautical miles (6 mi, 9 km) north of Lahaina, in Maui County. Most flights to Kapalua Airport originate from commuter airports on the other Hawaiian islands by c
  10. Scenery Review : EGSS Stansted by Boundless Simulations There are six airports that service the London area in the United Kingdom. Heathrow (LHR), Gatwick (LGW), City (LCY), Luton (LTN), Southend (SEN) and finally Stansted (STN). Breaking them down, then Heathrow is the biggest and the capitol's main major hub, Gatwick services the south and is another major gateway. The rest though are really satellite or even regional hubs... except LCY, but then London City is really only a commuter airport with serious runway restrictions on the type of aircraft that can get in there and then
  11. I’d buy this - even though much of the content must be similar to the 757 pack I own - but there are plenty of comments out there that the sounds both inside and outside are too low. How was the volume when you tried it Stephen?
  12. Current owners can also use Airfoillabs 'Product Manager" and update from there.
  13. News! - Aircraft Update : King Air 350 v1.5 by AirFoilLabs The Airfoillabs team, an X-Plane 11 addon developer from Brno, Czech Republic has released the v1.5 update of their King Air 350. The team from Airfoillabs has spent quite a bit of time in this update release focusing on the physical model, avionics, performance and general handling of their airplane. The 5th in line, this update introduces a new Quick Look feature, which allows the Pilot to use predefined views to navigate around the flightdeck. This feature should significantly reduce the workload for the pil
  14. News! - Released : Mango Studios FF 767 Sound Pack Notes were made that after the release of a sound package for the FlightFactor Boeing 757 Series from Mango Studios, then the same package would also be soon available for the FlightFactor's Boeing 767 series... and here it is. The package works on all the different variants of the Flight Factor 767 Pro (or 767 Extended or 767 FPDS). And the feature list is quite extensive. and to note that the Flight Factor 767 Pro is required for the use of this sound pack. Features: New and h
  15. Hi Stephen, Some of your comments surprise me. Thanks for allowing feedback on this forum. I like the red and yellow ladders. Why do you need to know which is default? You refer to the right MFD RP2 as basically your heading dial. Huh? It is much more than that. Check out the Flight Manual beginning on page 3-54 and also the weapon system page 5-76. WOW is not a humorous reference. It stands for Weight On Wheels and is listed in the glossary. I don't understand your comments on the APU having a mind of it's own. Are you using th
  16. Reminds me of the old saying "close but no cigar". The new price normal of forty bucks apparently means that just OK if fine but not for MY forty bucks.
  17. I have bought several Boundless sceneries and had commented in the past that they seemed to be improving at each release. The rate of releases has been increasing and when I bought Stansted for the first time I was rather disappointed. It was an excellent choice of subject but there’s something about it that’s missing. It’s difficult to put my finger on exactly what it is, a lack of life perhaps, and it did make me wonder if Boundless, in releasing so many sceneries so quickly, isn’t falling into a trap of not spending enough time in making them as good as they could be.

  19. Aircraft Update : Embraer ERJ Family v1.4.0 by X-Crafts X-Crafts have done an interesting update to their ERJ Family of aircraft... E135, E140, E145, E145XR and the ERJ private jet version of the Legacy 650 to version v1.4.0 The v1.4.0 update is mainly focused on the FMS. As Steve Wilson has been working on a complete rewrite of the FMS navdata coding, and in this aspect it is focused on here, is the (hidden transition) from the old X-Plane navigation database (GNS430) to the newer X-Plane11 system navigation database, as this will be the cornerstone of the new Authen
  20. News! - Scenery Release : EGSS Stansted Airport by Boundless The EGSS Stansted Airport scenery by Boundless has now been released on the X-Plane.OrgStore. Stansted is notably London's UK third airport, but that depends on if you include Luton. Growth over the last few decades at Stansted has been huge for two reasons. First the restrictions on Heathrow and Gatwick, but also in the fact that Stansted is a also very much more LCC (Low Cost Carrier) focused destination with the airport being the largest Ryanair base for the airline. Noted is "Stansted for X-Pl
  21. No updates have been forthcoming since 2014 (Peter was out of the development process for a fair while) so the status is still actually the same? 2014 is now a long time ago, but I do remember these A320s were pretty good for the time, the systems and flight protocols were done by ToLiSS (before they were ToLiSS), so the performance was also pretty good... Still a good A320 for half the price of the FlightFactor A320 Ultimate. If I find the time I might reload one in and see how it performs today.
  22. After so many years, you could do an update review again. I'm sure some of the criticisms have been resolved. I am thinking about buying a Hager plane. Am unsure though because I can't find a recent review.
  23. Aircraft Review : Lockheed Martin F22A Raptor by AOA Simulations The USAF's Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) program, was a demonstration and validation program undertaken by the United States Air Force to develop a next-generation air superiority fighter to counter emerging worldwide threats, including Soviet Sukhoi Su-27 and Mikoyan MiG-29 fighters that were under development in the 1980s. Lockheed and Northrop were selected in 1986 to develop the YF-22 and the YF-23 technology demonstrator aircraft. These aircraft were evaluated in 1991 and the Lockheed YF-22 was selected and lat
  24. News! - Aircraft Update : CowenSim MD500E v1.10 CowenSim has done a through update to their MD500E (Hughes 500) v1.10. My view in the CowenSim MD500E review was that the aircraft felt slightly undeveloped, so this comprehensive v1.10 update it should now cover the final aspects of the delivery of a fantastic machine. Added tons of liveries There were quite a few liveries added to the package 50 New paint kit The paint kit was upgraded and a paint kit for the cargo pod was added to the package. Thank you Pasiel J for your help. The new kit is am
  25. Nice plane with beautiful graphics and a beautiful 3d cockpit with working buttons this plane is a masterpiece keep working. the only problem is how do I get the bonus planes included in the description?
  26. Dead last in the race for sim-supremacy, if there is such a thing? It is true there is a huge amount of scenery being released for MSFS, odd in that the selling point of that sim was that it meant to be a very good representation of the real world. Look at the releases as well, lots of very small airports that are at best niche markets. Xplane has been around a while so a lot of subjects have already been covered, plus the native airports in Xplane are often very good and therefore obviate the need for payware. Add in free scenery in Xplane and its still dead last? As for payware aircr
  27. Ridiculous. Everyday tons of releases for other sims and all we get is a helipad for a hospital? Really almost forgot we get plenty of WIP clay models for planes that have been in development for YEARS. (Md 11). Sorry just very frustrated. Seems like xplane is dead last in the race for sim-supremacy
