  1. Splendid, John. How long did it take you to get to the summit
  2. Many thanks John, I actually quite liked it at the end, it's like a magic carpet out of a sudden Thank you very much John. Hahaha. I like your humor, Gerold! Thanks a lot, Wayne. I use the MSFS legacy converter
  3. This is the old FSX 707 from Captain Sim. As you will see, she has a few shortcomings. One of the most striking ones is that the undercarriage doesn’t show, but she sits at the right height on the tarmac and she rolls and moves fine. Also engines and flaps all work as they should. Then she has no instruments. She never had in MSFS, which is in my case not a big problem, as I have all necessary flight information on a second monitor. Why do I go through all this trouble? Because I’m mad, didn’t you know? Ok, I just love flying older birds and I don’t know, whether we will ever see a 707 or 727 in MSFS. So, on occasion I like taking them up to the air. No worries, I don't smoke, while flying. I just drink Juneau comes up finally A big thank you to the Orbx team to have created this mesh. It really has transformed Alaska!! And to give us also Juneau as a free add-on is almost unbelievable at this price.
  4. That's the way to do it, John. Get a house large enough, so that you can park your plane and cars underneath your living space Greats screenies!
  5. Superb screenies, Carlos. Mumbai looks really good by night (you can't see too much of the traffic below you in the streets )
  6. Nothing beats an old biplane for some fun up in the skies! Great screenies, Don!
  7. Awesome shots, I think I need the F14 too
  8. John, in your MSFS Content Manager you have all the stuff that comes with the simulator, like aircraft, free MSFS liveries by Asopbo, POI, country updates etc, etc. It can take quite some time, to update all this stuff, once a newer version of the simulator comes along. Yesterday I updated my MSFS to the latest build, but haven't flown yet, as I am busy now with updating all the stuff in the Content Manager. The bloody annoying thing is that all the many items in there can only be updated one by one. At least I haven't found a way to update all at one go.
  9. Many thanks for your kind comments John, Adam and Wayne!
  10. Superb shots. I now have fully moved to MSFS. But if there would be one reason to go back to XP11, it would be the because of the TE sceneries. Outstanding!
  11. Isn't it superb that we now have so many options. Many years ago we only had FS9, now we have P3D, XP 11 and MSFS and most of us are happy with what they can do with it.
  12. Many thanks, John Thanks a lot, Greg Thanks, buddy. The yacht is the FSX one from Deltasim Thank you very much I'm happy you like them Carlos Many thanks, Gerold. I knew you would like them And of course you are correct re the people, even the noise, pigeons, even cows etc are part of the unique Indian experience. The only thing I can easily do without are stomach cramps from some of the dinners I had there, even in good restaurants.
  13. Having been to Mumbai so many times, this scenery was an instant buy for me. I only hope that the developers will one day also add Dehli, because this part of the world desperately needs more quality coverage. Like in the good old days, I arrived at my destination by boat. But of course I did not expect to get the royal welcome treatment Instead nobody bothered, which was fine of course My preferred stay in Mumbai was the Taj, and if possible a room in the old wing. It gives you the feeling that the days of the Raj are back. Maybe Gerold, who must have been to Mumbai as often as me, likes this hotel too The view from the hotel’s roof is quite nice The swimming pool looks a bit better in reality, but that's alright Of course the adjacent newer hotel complex offers from its top an even better view An Indian business associate of mine invited me one day for lunch at the Royal Bombay Yacht Club (they never changed the name to Mumbai Yacht Club and dress code is still today strictly observed). But before we went there, he showed me a photo, quite similar to this one and asked me, which of these two buildings would I think to be the Yacht Club. I have been to the Karachi Yacht Club for lunch, so I pointed to the right building, as it looked very similar. Of course I was wrong, it is the red building to the left. The right one in this case is a hospital. A bit of trivia: when you enter the Yacht Club, it gives you the impression that the British Raj has actually never left India. The beauty of virtual travel is that you have the place you visit all to yourself. No pigeons, no vendors, no huge crowds and no one tries to steel your wallet Thanks for viewing
  14. OMG, where did this one come from?
  15. I very much hope so too, John. If they are willing to invest in the Orbx scenery, otherwise...
  16. First of all, this is terrific news. But, and this is a big but for me: like Chris aka AnkH, I have many NZ freeware airports from the Tonga site. If they now become incompatible with this product, I don't see a point in buying it. For me this means, I will wait with the purchase until I know, what is going to happen in this respect.
  17. When we were alpha testing MSFS, we of course noticed that the bridge was missing, which was somewhat odd, as the Opera House was well modeled. We never got an answer from the development team, until someone from Sydney speculated that the city government had managed to have the bridge patent protected. No idea, whether this is true, but if it would be true, Asobo/MS would have to ask the city government for permission to model it into the sim, hence they didn't bother. On the other hand, if the Harbour Bridge is protected, the iconic Opera House must be patent protected too, but this one looks great in default. Oh well, just speculating. It's not really important anymore, I guess
  18. Excellent work on this one, Ken!! Looking very much forward to buy it. Will you and Tim have a chance to develop your fantastic PNG airstrips for MSFS? I know quite a few people (myself included), for whom this would be like Xmas and Eastern together Bernd
