  1. Nice review as always, thank you ! I just wish they allow their users to install their "metar server" locally. I don't like when a plugin/software relies completely on a private server that could disappear at any moment. I'll still wait a bit for the bug fixes... hoping that they'll fix quickly and not in a "1.06->1.07" timeframe.
  2. Hi Stephen, You're right, it's a great great news ! I guess you'll be in some troubles when you'll have to choose between your 777 cargo and this one for your F1 world tour Regards, Christophe
  3. My question was more about the depth of the simulated systems. Without looking for a CBT, I'm looking for an aircraft where I have to read and practice before mastering it. My heart would choose the 757 but the Maddog is, well, the Mad Dog. ;-)
  4. Hi Stephen, I love the 757 by default in the "after-the-737-classic-jet-era", but I didn't (yet) bought the FF757. As I like to use the default MD from v11, on a pure procedure/system point of view, do you prefer to use the FF757 or the Rotate bird ? Thanks ! Christophe
  5. I'm balanced between: - no one killer feature when coming from v4 and then we wait that long for only that ? - where were those developers when they disappeared after v4, leaving their customers as-is ? (what if the same scenario occurs with v5 ?) Other than that, a bit expensive when we see the online offer. Anyway, all the best to v5, I used v4 nearly everyday with pleasure.
  6. Thank you for this review. Beti-X did a marvelous job at Stewart and again at Bella Coola. I didn't know about the Generic Mod Enabler, thanks. Christophe
  7. Behind the Screen : The Year in Review 2016

    Thanks to you Stephen for the all work you do each... week ? :-) All the best for this new year, Christophe.
  8. I didn't know there was a third guy on the field ! :-) Thanks
  9. Hi Stephen, Nice review! Just a tiny bit: "Vertigo" is driven by Bertrand (beber) while Laurent drives "Avia71" Thanks for your time
  10. Hi, Do you talk about Carenado or SimCoders ? I guess SimCoders will not integrate the GNS530 since it requires to work on the 3D cockpit for the least, it's a job for the original author: Carenado.
  11. Hi Stephen, You're right, IMHO, the Graphics set up page is far too simple to be able to tweak maybe the most tricky part of the sim. We'll see how LR will receive the calls from the community (see on .org: http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/109921-xp11-advanced-rendering-settings/ ) I'm still looking for the (missing?) feature of the local map to be able to change the location (drag-n-drop), the speed, the altitude and the heading... It was useful when you want to debug a scene. Maybe I didn't looked deeply enough :-) (edit> right after this post, I found the solution, thanks to the community: http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/110186-maps-are-lacking/&do=findComment&comment=1082732 ) Anyway, I thought that the Canadair CL415 could be updated, maybe Javier is a bit late ? And what about the Citation X ? Cheers, Christophe
  12. Thanks for the nice review, Stephen. Is the G1000 faster than the (last?) v3.3 evolution of the TBM 850 ?
  13. Have a nice trip Stephen and I wish you already an happy 60th birthday! Read you soon!
