Upgrading to Windows Vista
“If more than a decade in IT has taught me one thing, it is the old adage that “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” is mostly true! Early in the New Year, I decided to set about building a new PC. On the software side I had to decide whether to add Windows Vista or stick to the tried and trusted Windows XP.”

Short Forms, Long Troubles
Using a VOR/NDB/GPS IAP at KTYS under IMC in MSFS can be a TA. Well, not really, because KTYS doesn’t have a VOR/NDB/GPS IAP for use under IMC. Sentences overloaded with abbreviations are often found later in a book or article, after they’ve been identified. But the topic of this article mandates such a sentence up front, to make a point. Bill Stack makes his point very clear in this column!

How to Fly like a Thunderbird - Part III
In our last two articles we covered the basics of online formation aerobatics to a point where the natural progression is to now attempt some or all of the maneuvers flown by the USAF Thunderbirds and begin to string together a show.

Flight Sim Affairs and Crimes of Passion – Part V
“My pre-occupation with flight sim had brought me to the brink of losing my job. I’d been ordered home from the Chatswood branch of Crime Scene Ops and instructed to take some leave while my superiors dealt with the fallout from that morning’s embarrassing events at the crime scene.” The final chapter of Bill Smith’s sim fiction series!

The MITRE/VATSIM Event Report
Now there is yet one more good reason to feed the flight simulation habit- it may prove to be a valuable resource for aviation planning purposes…

Combat Air Museum – The B-36 “Peacemaker”
The Peacemaker holds the distinction of being the largest ever piston powered, combat aircraft. It was also the first aircraft to be fitted to carry thermonuclear weapons. The B-36 set the stage for future long-range bombers, such as the B-52 and the B-1B.

Building the Ultimate Sim Series – Part II
Last month we took a look at a variety of the control, display and environment options available as the more basic level of enhancements. The next tier is where the enthusiast begins to get even more serious about the options and one of the ways this is reflected is by selecting control yokes of full metal not plastic construction.

Round Robin Adventures – China Southwest Airlines
We are flying for China Southwest Airlines, and will be doing a full “three cycle” day with landings at Xiamen, Taipei and Hong Kong.

DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - RJAA TOKYO NARITA P3D4.4-5
Piotr
Really nice airport with cool features and details. Maybe there is a compromise between high texture quality and performance, but I think there have been found a golden mean, especially for a such a big airport. I also noticed few minor bugs, but I'm pretty sure that fixes will come soon.

Finally a good scenery of Japan at a reasonable price. Great details, amazing performance on my old rig. Fantastic job! Will it be available for msfs?

Great thought-out routes. Tons of sight seeing. Will be way better once the developer updates these into Bush Trips (something they said they are planning to do)...
UK2000 SCENERY - LUTON 2020HD MSFS
THOMAS
This UK 2000 'Port Over' offer's an Accurate Rendition of Luton but the cost of the Airport is excessive and for this reason. In it's past FSX and XPlane incarnations Luton and other Offerings by UK 2000 demonstrated the Excellent Technical Abilities of it's Creator using the SDK provided for those Sims. Now that we are in the World of MFS 2020 it would be great to see this Talented Company take advantage of the MFS 2020 SDK and develop some Ground Breaking Renditions for the Community. I am a Long Term Customer of this Company but will not purchase from them until they provide us with Airports that are worthy of their Talent and our new Sim.

TFDI DESIGN - PACX
Sergey
Great addon adding immersion for your flight. You can focus on proper flying, not serving meals, which is great (all this stuff is fully automatic). Career mode is fantastic. You can use PACX as a logbook. Moreover, you can print or save as a PDF file flying report with data from a destination to the landing rate—FSpassange-
r as it has to be. Because you are not a flight attendant, you are a pilot.

DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - RJAA TOKYO NARITA P3D4.4-5
Michael
I have to echo some previous reviews. The glideslope for 34L seems completely off, and the overall the scenery looks pretty bland at night, and the surrounding photo base doesn't blend well at all. I'm sure DD will address this with patches, but until then, I can't give this more than 3 stars. Definitely seems rushed.

I have virtually all your airports on X-Plane & no break for us & also 2d trees ? Please remove them & get the tree in the picture that's in the middle of the ramp to the terminal Building off. Trees don't grow on concrete walkways ! I am happy to see you guys in the arena but come on if you want serious business.
