    My congratulations to the whole team on the conclusion of a truly epic journey. I remember when in April 2011, the whole IXEG team was in Frankfurt to fly the Lufthansa Full Flight Sim and they came over for dinner afterwards. Jörg (of vasFMC fame) and me treated the IXEG team to german bread and sausages, french cheese and asparagus salad. It was an unforgettable dinner full of tech and plane talk, and of course bragging about what our add-ons can do. That was roughly one month before the CRJ first came out. At that dinner table, they projected the IXEG 737 to be released "soon after the CRJ". Little did they know what lay ahead of them. So here we are, five years later, finally about to put the chocks under the wheels after an epic long-haul flight. Well done, guys, and congratulations on pulling this off. Philipp

    This file is the paint kit to allow customers to create and re-distribute liveries for the Take Command!: IXEG 737 Classic. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact any of us here in the IXEG section of the forums!

    Captains, After six years of development the IXEG 737 Classic has been cleared to land! We're officially announcing Saturday, April 23, 2016 as the release date. Thanks to @froogle for also visiting the office to share his enthusiasm of the product and putting a mix on our traditional way of announcing releases! You're awesome, dude! There's been a lot of discussion over the last few years showcasing what to expect from this product, so we won't go too far into that, but I would like to provide a little bit more information for you... Release time: When we make announcements like this we make every attempt to get the product out close to midnight time the day of release. This means for some it may be Friday night if you are located in the USA. I cannot provide an exact time, but I would anticipate a release window between 12am-2am EST. Pricing: We will be announcing price (as we always do) once the product page is up and running. More details about the product as a whole will be there too. Liveries: There will be 20 liveries included upon release. They are: Air Berlin Air France Air Italy America West British Airways Condor Delta Retro Iberia IXEG Jet2 Linjeflyg Lufthansa Lufthansa Retro Norwegian SAS Southwest New Transaero United (tulip) US Air Varig We will be including a paint kit at release time. I want to caution people about attempting to make this thread about livery requests. Within a very short period of time I can promise you will see many free liveries out there on the various download libraries, so don't panic if you're initial request is not present in the above list! Manuals: The package will come with quite a bit of documentation, but we don't want this aircraft to be intimidating. Yes, it's definitely a study level simulation, but the included tutorials come in PDF and video form. While there's a lot to learn, we've made it as interactive and fun as possible for you. Reading big FCOMs can get rather boring to a lot of people, so we hope you enjoy this! We also recommend Mike Rays 737 handbook as a compliment to this product. His book is excellent and works quite nicely as a follow along guide for this product! Server load: I have noted a number of folks concerned about whether we can handle the initial demand. At X-Aviation, we have had some rather big releases in recent time and come to know what to expect pretty well with releases like this. The IXEG 737 release will be no different, and the installer will detect your location and balance the server loads appropriately. We anticipate a very smooth (and fast) experience for our customers. A lot of time is invested from our side to ensure you have a good experience with this! More than anything, and on behalf of @tkyler, @Litjan, @Morten, @Nils, @Ben Russell and myself, we want to say thank you for your continued interest, support, and motivation to keep going on this journey. It's been a long time coming, and our excitement is at an all-time high this week. None of this would be possible with you guys, our fans. Now, plan your routes, sit back, and light up those X-Plane skies with the 737 Classic this weekend! We know you guys will do us proud...you always do! Cheers! Cameron Where is all began years ago...

    To be honest, the store never went down, and still seems to be going strong. Probably diverted X-Pilot resources to cope

    Here at x-aviation purchasing queue, the atmosphere is palpable People from all around the world are in a state of anxiety Some even resorting to the affliction we call Refresheritis In sever cases this terrible affliction can cause uncontrollable hits on the F5 keyboard button A guy reporting from Germany going by the name of flymia has succumbed to this horrid affliction Poor guy will soon start going hyper soon we suspect Guys afflicted should call 08000 1234 5432 and ask for Silvia

    I have updated the list in post no. 1 of this thread to todays status. While mostly removing things, I had to add that the PROGRESS page didn´t quite make it into 1.0. I also considered adding: a totally bug-free experience with no soft-crashes as something that will NOT be in 1.0. While we worked hard to find as many faults as possible, we are fully prepared to receive a flurry of reports (both real and due to lack of understanding) over the next few days. We will be hear to listen, help, catalogue and fix them - and it is our goal to get an update to fix any critical problems to you VERY swiftly. Happy landings, everyone, Jan

    Firstly, it was only the forum that went down, not the actual shop site. Secondly, if you stopped panicking and hitting "Refresh" every few seconds that would be fab. If enough people do it, it's not different to a DDOS attack.

    We have already made our technical decisions and we stand by them. We work for the majority. What you feel personally is not what we experience to be the majority desire or path of least resistance and best overall customer experience. I respect that many people do prefer a simple archive. You should respect that many more people simply want to run an installer, click five buttons and play their game.

    The nerd level in this thread is comforting, in that I'm not (too) crazy. I have over 1700 skydives and was worrying i maybe got a little too exited about a simulated plane
