Re: FR24 Down?

Both FR24 and Flightaware have been repeatedly attacked in the last week by who know (and really, who cares - idiots the whole lot). Unfortunately, it's not a simple problem to solve as they seem to be DDOS (distributed enial of service) attacks, which are hard to defend against and relies pretty he...

Re: Video: American Freestyle Bullfighting

I'm sorry guys, but as someone who's been around Rodeo for many years, I hate to see the continued ignorance being shared. The flank rope is not a "cruel rope". A properly seated strap is snug, but not tight (most people compare the proper tightness to that of a corset or girdle). It is not over the...

Re: Not a very nice true story!!

First, that's an amazing and inspirational story. Thanks for sharing it. The bills are high for a couple reasons, most of them BS. First, the hospitals have to provide care for everyone who shows up and needs it. Period. Whether they can pay or not, they get helped. Where a lot of people misundersta...

Re: MSFS 2020 First Impressions

So, my impressions - overall, it's solid. Much more solid than FSX was when it first released. I'm happy with the basis for it and can't wait to start putting in my usual addons as they come out the next few months. It's really cool seeing the landmarks actually showing up right and most houses (at ...

Re: MSFS 2020 First Impressions

You can also use Snapper - http://www.michielovertoom.com/software/snapper/ It's been around forever, and still works for P3D and (I think) will work fine in MSFS but I haven't tested the overlay yet. It uses FSUIPC for the positioning and I've not put in the FSUIPC 7 BETA yet so I haven't seen if i...

Re: Which Version of MS2020 Would You Buy?

May or may not sway anyone, but here's some videos I've been watching on FS2020 now that the media embargo has been lifted - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oHHfyBlZoQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHqHrPBkD8s&t=1942s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d0lpPDYZZs It's important to note here on Quil...

Re: A Bit of This and a Bit of That

I wonder if some of the apparent darkness is HDR? I know that in P3D the bloom effects with HDR makes some odd darkening, especially when looking from inside to outside. It's part of why I finally turned it off.

Re: Which Version of MS2020 Would You Buy?

I got the impression from the devs in their posts that not even these base aircraft and sceneries are 100% theirs. I think they are mostly theirs, but once the NDAs are fully released, I suspect we'll find that there is a lot of back-end and finishing on individual parts that's been done by well kno...

Re: Which Version of MS2020 Would You Buy?

I decided to create a Google Map to illustrate the locations of the bespoke hand-crafted airfields by Edition: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=1TxoAiv_-sVesjlFn_61F3qYoyoPspFpF&usp=sharing I'd appreciate feedback :thumbsup: It'd also be great if Admins could allow me to embed the map please ...

Re: Which Version of MS2020 Would You Buy?

I'm going to get the Premium. $119 seems like a lot, but when you look at what you get, the airports alone make it worth the extra cost. Consider that an addon airport averages $20 anymore. Even a "basic" addon aircraft like from Carenado is $30. Over the base version, you're getting 10 extra airpla...
