  1. I’m not sure that the PP EGKK was beautifully rendered - it always seemed serviceable but not much more. The new Origami studios EGKK is much better.
  2. I did not intend to suggest that the size of the aircraft should drive the price, rather that perhaps psychologically perhaps people think smaller aircraft, smaller price. The price doesn’t frighten me too much but most of the online comments aren’t positive. On Thranda my mistake I guess but have they done big jet work (thinking here of the projected A300, 747 and VC10) before? And if Thranda are involved why don’t JF make something of it? After all its only likely to sell more units with their reputation. Perhaps it might even be in your piece if that’s a definite? On t
  3. I am looking forward to this but a lot of the commentary online has not been positive. One thing, at the price, is that there are complaints that the preview shots just show the stock FMC. JF say that will be fixed but it does rather open the question what would be the correct FMC(s) for the aircraft? The likely price has also been generally lambasted. It isn’t cheap (JF aren’t a low cost shop) but its not that different to other new XPlane offerings like the 748, A300 and A350. It does make you wonder if the community expectation is that for a smaller aircraft, a regional jet, the p
  4. I see that this scenery is already on sale. Developers need to understand that customers learn.
  5. I flew the 10 many times, mostly in AA colors but before that in BCAL. On what the simulation community wants it seems - that from most releases - it's current commercial aircraft. This issue is that one Airbus is pretty much like another - and some Boeings have been around for a long time - so perhaps the MD-11 is seen as something different. Generally though outside FJS and Rotate have classic aircraft succeeded, at least from a sales point of view? What is interesting is that how Rotate, who haven't had a new release in a very long time, are so well regarded based on the long running and ex
  6. I would agree that this is an excellent scenery and bought it from the Org.store recently. However there is a freeware Narita and that has quite a few fans some of whom seemed less than enthusiastic about there now being a payware competitor. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more good Asian sceneries in the future. Its an unrepresented area and somewhere to fly some of the long haulers that are becoming more available on Xplane.
  7. Boundless have been coming along quite nicely with each new scenery seeming to improve on the past. They’ve also suggested some really interesting new developments including Palm Springs. They’ve also said they are going to support MSFS and they’re looking for someone to work on P3D conversions. It’s all very ambitious but we’ll need to see if the small team they have (two I believe) can execute.
  8. I will almost certainly but this, but it’s interesting that this has so much attention of the community. But then I guess the release of the PMDG FSX version did as well. I flew on the MD-11 many times, not easy to do as the passenger variant, at least in AA colors, had a short life. American wasn’t happy with the purchase, the performance being the stated issue but the landing behavior probably had them worried as well. Singapore just cancelled theirs when the real performance data was available. It didn’t sell a huge number but became an affordable freight option. MD got it wrong
  9. I just bought this from the Org. Store and it seems as if there was an update in 01/22 to address some of your issues. Did you see that?
  10. Interesting as always. The X-Plane community does love the freeware. I made the mistake, on another forum, of welcoming the new payware Narita that’s just been released. There isn’t much good payware for Asia at the moment and the developer does have a decent record. My post instantly attracted negative comments. Why welcome this new scenery when there was a good freeware alternative - which there is? The temerity of the developer in releasing a product in competition to a liked freeware! On the MSFS gold rush it seems that everyday four or five new sceneries are released. But the choice
  11. Well, I bought the scenery and I’m very happy with it. As the review says a good location and its a great scenery for the money ($18). Pleasingly it’s not bloated in size as many sceneries these days seem to be. Look forward to more from this developer.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. It is true that the 10 fps is an individual user decision. But it is always trade offs. For example the latest generation of commercial airliners for Xplane like the Inbuilds A300 or the SSG 748 are often heavier on frame rates than the generation before. Then add in other plugs in that people use and performance can be impacted pretty quickly. In your reviews you don’t list what plug ins and other sceneries that you are using. Looking at the screenshots you post it looks as if you used Zibo and one of the Toliss Airbuses. But other than that its difficult to judge how complex your set up is.
  15. You are right, $10 and importantly 10fps less. I am sure that it has its fans but the complexity of the interface for me suggests too much fiddling around and not enough flying. However the developer deserves credit for trying to resolve some of the current Xplane issues. Vulkan has given me a pleasant but not huge increase in frame rates. Not sure that I want to give that back or add stutters.
