SKYLINE SIMULATIONS - CINCINNATI INT. AIRPORT - MSFS

SKYLINE SIMULATIONS - CINCINNATI INT. AIRPORT - MSFS

Missing textures. Art work is poorly done. Night lighting / cargo areas non-existent. A lot of low res areas with no attention to detail. Elevation problems on 17L/35R. This looks like it was thrown together in a weekend and dumped on the market. More attention inside the terminals than outside. No patches, no support.

HIFI TECH - ACTIVE SKY CLOUD ART FSX P3D3-6

HIFI TECH - ACTIVE SKY CLOUD ART FSX P3D3-6

This is not a replacement for REX TD ... or even default P3D textures for that matter. I really liked the idea of having my clouds and weather program integrated and dynamic. Unfortunately, the visuals produced by ASCA are no where close to what I was using with REX TD and Soft Clouds. The options for cloud types and skies are far less than what I had before and I get some truly awful looking and unrealistic looking clouds. http://prntscr.com/br5mex I'm also getting new clouds popping in from nowhere, and some sky color changes that make me feel like my sim experience is going backwards in technology rather than forward. They have a long way to go before I re-install. The concept is great, but the program isn't filling my expectations compared to other options I already own.

BLUEPRINT - KMSP MINNEAPOLIS - ST PAUL INTL V2 FSX

BLUEPRINT - KMSP MINNEAPOLIS - ST PAUL INTL V2 FSX

Outdated. The graphics are so bad it's almost a downgrade from the default scenery. I'd wait for someone with advanced design techniques like T2G, Sunbeam, or FSDreamteam to release this airport. Also, don't bother with support from Blueprint. If they don't like the way you word your questions, you will not get support. Not nice people.

SYSTEMS UNLIMITED - FS CAPTAIN

SYSTEMS UNLIMITED - FS CAPTAIN

If you don't belong to a virtual airline and want to put some purpose and career tracking behind your flight time, this product will do the job. It brings together a lot of features from other programs and adds some slick scheduling and dispatch functions. I'd recommend using the demo for a solid week before making your decision. You might find the audio functions a bit too game like (and annoying) if you're a hardcore simmer. With my VA's ACARS client, PFPX, EFB, Vatsim, GSX, and the load managers from my commercial aircraft, I don't have much use for the product. I don't think there's anything fundamentally or functionally wrong with the product, but it's more of a novelty than a tool for someone like me. Depending the way you prefer to simulate, you might find the program great if you fully commit to it, or you could find it burdensome and redundant if you already have a host of other programs in your routine.

WILCO - CRJ NEXTGEN FSX P3D

WILCO - CRJ NEXTGEN FSX P3D

Despite the bad reviews, I bought it ... thinking ... it can't be THAT bad. It is. It's worse. It's a nightmare. The autopilot is a disaster. It does nothing you tell it and it behaves erratically. Even the basic modes such as VS or heading select - forget it. The Virtual Cockpit is out of sync with the 2D (limited) panels. The lights don't sync, the autopilot - it doesn't listen to your mouse clicks unless you flip over to the 2D - then they are out of sync. It's absurd the developer released this product and actually takes money from people. As much as you want a commercial CRJ and think you can live with some flaws, don't do it. I had low expectations and was still surprised how bad it actually is. They should be ashamed.
