    First off, my apologies for continued Noob threads getting FSX back up and running, but have a quick question. I have always used MyTrafficX through the various iterations and have always enjoyed the AI traffic they populate at all the airfields. I have always like flying out of the SEATAC area, particularly McChord (KTCM), though wish it were more faithfully reproduced, and MyTrafficX would populate the airfield with various military planes, C-130, C-17, A-10s and F-18s. It looked great, like a robust military airfield. Now, since Orbx has released GA and commercial AI on their freeware site, I added those too. Now, I seem to see the GA and Commercial, but NO military, at all. Matter of fact, McChord has nothing on it, but nearby Gray Army Airfield has some B-52's and helicopters,...

    Thanks for sharing this tool and the link to it. As someone always looking for more immersion, this looks to fit the bill rather nicely. I also want to see what Bjoern's come up with. I've never really thought much about voice commands, just macro switches linked to a joystick. You just have to love technology and what it can do for your entertainment. Thanks for putting your utility together Bjoern.

    Okay, perhaps Facebook is their only medium for customer support. I've sent 2 emails, one to Ron, the other to customer service and posted on their forums....nadda, zip, zilch for a reply. Have they really become that remotely distant from their customers and abandoned their forums? Really frustrated... Sorry, rant over. I hate Facebook with a passion, though fully understand from a marketing standpoint the ability to fully interact with your customers on a more personal level, however, I digress. Matt

    Naruto, Terrain following radar, right? If so, I see much greatness in applying that to many military birds equipped with that technology. Looks great, regardless of the impact it may have on FPS. Just another reason to upgrade your system.... ;)

    Gents, As you know, I am rebuilding my FSX library because of a HDD failure about 2 years ago and while I have been successful at downloading from most of the vendors, including FS Pilotshop, I cannot post on their forums until it's been approved by a moderator. In my post, I asked how I can reactivate my previous orders, but that message sadly has yet to be posted....5 days later. Anyway, I found an old email from Ron, I believe, asking the same thing, but have heard nothing from him either. So, getting a bit frustrated but haven't given up yet, in hopes someone here either dialogues regularly with them or has a better POC that can reply sooner than later. Thanks in advance. Matt

    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.
