    As someone interested in this too, I read some reviews about how it made the shorelines, rivers and many roads much better than default or UTX, in addition to what was mentioned. I see this as almost a must for a more immersive experience. Now, if only to find it on sale......

    Yay! Scored the Skyhawk and a trainer. Good day to fly. Now, just have to find the PC12 at a great price and I'll leave well enough alone till Christmas. Thanks for the heads up guys.

    Thanks for the replies and the review. I always yearned for a more interactive experience at the airports/airfields. This looks to fit the bill. Also, took a look at some of their airports...OMG! Simply beautiful works of art, but I'm certain FPS hogs.

    As stated, I wanted to cruise over to PC Aviator to check out some Virtavia items and this caught my eye. I bought a few of the FS Dream Team airports in the past and had mixed results with them working in FSX frame rate wise. Any reviews or comments? http://www.pcaviator.com/store/product.php?productid=19931&cat=0&page=0&featured=Y Man, go away from the hobby for a few years and it's like Christmas....

    Thanks for the link. I swear I didn't see one on their site, so noted and email on it's way. I'll hope they can help. Thanks, I'll look there next for their A-4 and some other newer releases, especially if I have to re-purchase my fantastic C-17 again. Cheers, Matt

    Sorry to bring up an older thread that's been answered, but I have a quick question. I bought the C-17 from Flight1 in June 2011. Flight1 no longer has it on their store and I no longer have the download anymore. Aside from having to purchase that great aircraft again, was there anyway my license will work with another download from another flight sim shop that now supports Virtavia? Thanks Matt

    That's my feeling now, towards the Orbx stuff versus the Flight1 stuff. It was all not bad in the beginning, but the merging, updates and hoping it all work well together gets a bit old. I think it just simplifies and hopefully in the end, most of what I choose will easily port into Prepar3d too.

    Zsolt, thank you for the fantastic paints you're applying to this beauty. As soon as I finish downloading all of my missing files, I am delving deeply into this bird, since I grew up around them most of my life and absolutely love the look and sound of the Phantom. Thank you for inspiring me to endure the tedious download times needed to showcase and fly your artwork applied to this fantastic bird from Milviz.

    LOL! +1^ from former installs. On a side note, does the larger Orbs stuff ever go on sale? I've bought more than a few of their airports this way and some of the original files, but honestly haven't kept up with prices and sales for last year or so since the fatal crash and deployment.

    Thanks Naismith. I am leaning toward ditching the UTX and GEX stuff as well. It just seems the more Orbx stuff that releases, the more potential for it to lash with other non-Orbx stuff if switch X isn't set when installing item Y. I am really impressed with what Orbx is putting out and forecasting, just gives immersiveness beyond even what they started with a few years ago.

    FSX Pros, I'm starting a fresh install of FSX, since I'm TDY and had some time to re-download the plethora of files I've bought through the years. This is also a perfect opportunity to clean up what I really want in my hangar, as well as upgrade some of the utilities that make it look fantastic. What I have purchased over the years scenery: Orbx PNW and Australia and many airports Flight 1 GEX/UTX Photo real....not gonna use.

    Wow! Simply great video Cleartheprop! I have been away from FSX too long and love what's been coming out lately, even the re-release of the Iris C-27. I think rather than re-download all the purchases, I will just select a few chosen ones and start over with the great new releases, including all the SSW products. I noticed in the end of the video, you have animated ground guides. Where do those come from? Finally, loved the Buccaneers and the carrier, not much into older Cold War jets, except some of the Century series and the Phantom, but they looked fantastic as well. Thanks for compiling and sharing.

    strykerpsg replied to a thread C-97 wip in FSX General Discussion
    TuFun, great work on such a great Cold War icon. The sounds you captured sound like many of the radial startups I've heard over the years at airshows and tarmacs. I think Bjoern's just having a bad day for him not to appreciate what you captured in the sound likeness. Are those type engines loud and cacophonic, absolutely. I think you nailed it on the head. How will you incorporate the jet engines with this model? were you able to overcome the FSX limitations of 2 different engine types on one airframe?
