  1. Looks great. Avionics look similar to a B.A.C 111. Would love to see a H.S 121 Trident.
  2. Scenery Review : EDDW Bremen by FSDG With the recent addition to the X-Plane world of the A300-ST (Beluga), there is perhaps a renewed interest in real-world routes that this unique aircraft flies to. Since Airbus have a facility in Bremen, it seems only right that this airport gets more attention. From Airbus's website it states: "In Bremen, approximately 2,500 people work at the second-largest Airbus Commercial site in Germany – where they are responsible for the design, manufacture, integration and testing of high-lift systems for the wings of A

  4. Scenery Review: EPKK Krakow XP by Drzewiecki-Design Drzewiecki Design are one of the more prolific creators of X-Plane content with a total of 20 sceneries to date. They focus on mostly Eastern European airports with a smattering of North American Airport and City extension packs. They started work in the flight simulation field in 2000, the brand was established in 2006 and the company founded in 2008. They expanded their products into X-Plane 10 and 11 and are one of the most prolific scenery creators in the X-Plane world to date. The airport first open
  5. Scenery Review : EINN Shannon Airport by Boundless Back in the post-war "Golden Age" of air travel, aircraft did not have the range or endurance to fly non-stop from Europe to the U.S, so routes had to either fly to Gander in Newfoundland as part of the great circle route, and when Shannon Airport became active, this also became part of the routing. Shannon Airport evolved from a former flying boat terminal was located at Foynes - a small town southern bank of the River Shannon Estuary and first proposed in 1936, and completed just before WW2. Ireland being a neutral
  6. Scenery Review: Aeroporto Cristoforo Colombo LIMJ by BCSceneries Currently, in the X-Plane world, we have two scenery offerings of LIMJ, an Aerosoft one and one by LIMJ of which is the subject of this review. The current version is 4 and there is a discount offered if you have previously purchased version 2 or 3 beforehand. From the description of the product it states: - 243 square kilometer city of Genova, 850 square kilometers outback of Genova (mountains and coasts). And, of course the presence of the international city airport Genova Cristoforo Colom
  7. You only have to remember PH-BUF, the 747-206 lost in the Tenerife Air Disaster.
  8. MS2020 is rapidly turning into an airport simulator rather than a flightsim. I bought the cheapest version with low expectations on it. Maybe in a year or so it might have potential.
  9. I'd be happy if they used sloped runways. This seems to be the exception rather than the rule, which is a shame, as it's one of X-Plane's good features.
  10. There is an update 1.3 at the store, I think some of the issues are addressed. Strangely, your like to this review is not present anymore. I bought at $15 and yet to to a flight with it, but I'm impressed with the animated billboards. The interior, I don't really care too much about, good enough I would say. Stay safe in AUZ! Greets from Ireland.
  11. Don't get me wrong. I have the 319 already and will be buying the A321 when it's released, I'll be the first to buy the A321. I'm guessing that the good framerate is attributed to the reduced animation that these controls would inflict.
  12. My only gripe with this (not bought yet or tested) is the fact (as you point out) that the glare-shield lights are not active as in the FFA320. Other than that, I sometimes forget which Airbus I'm using. I was hoping that they would add this feature in the up and coming A321 and retro-add it to the A319.
  13.

  14. I would say this is a very under-rated scenery in X-Plane. It's thrilling both to land and take off in. Very nice work and very reasonable price too.
  15. To be honest Stephen, I didn't even wait for the reviews. Flytampa's reputation is so great, that I bought first-day. My first flight was from LGAV (converted Flytampa from FSX) to LGKR (X-Plane native) version. One of my favourite flights with the FFA320.:)
  16. Yes, I was thinking the same myself. The library files are excellent I was experimenting with my RCTP and RPLL conversions. It sure gets addictive! Jude
  17. The only thing that put's me off, is the fairly good quality of the existing sceneries, and the dodgy looking airbuses dotted around the airport.
  18. Don't worry, I intend to at some stage.Despite current lack of features for the IXEG,It will be still a good aircraft,and I do have the FF757 to play with in the meantime
  19. Stonking great review,Stephen.I'll hold of till the new year for this one,as I'm waiting for the ahem - IXEG- to surface,rest assured,I will get this baby at some stage. Jude
  20. if you are using 1.7, for Windows,please install Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 32 and 64bit versions, it mentions this in the update.
  21. Well G'Day Stephen from Ireland, I started with X-Plane 9 when FSX announced it's last sim and dropped it when DX10 fixer came out along with the NGX. Last December I bit the bullet with X-Plane 10 and becoming extremely addictive. As if the A350 is not enough(which I'm very happy with), I've become interested in the A380 from Peter's Aircraft. The trouble is that there doesn't seem to be any good screenshots of the 3D cockpit and it appears to lack an FMC I don't see any objective reviews anywhere. Any thoughts? Jude
