  1. SkyMaxx Pro v4 Announcement!

    I don't even know who are, and I don't care if anyone uses xEnviro. No one gets their downloads or activations locked for using it either. That is a bold face lie. Either you have shared files or your downloads simply expired and you didn't backup your software. You sending "infinite" emails will ensure you don't get a reply though.
  2. Captains, It is with a lot of enthusiasm and excitement that I get the opportunity to announce SkyMaxx Pro v4.0 to you today! A few people have speculated out there on whether we were announcing the next version soon, or what may be in it, and today we can tell you a whole lot more! Without question, SkyMaxx Pro v4 is going to be our most exciting of the SkyMaxx Pro series to date. The features it brings to the X-Plane experience are pretty awesome, so without further ado, the feature list for SkyMaxx Pro v4 is as follows (a preview video will follow soon): - Double your maximum cloud draw area! Big performance improvements allow clouds to be drawn across an area up to 320 km across surrounding your plane. Go ahead and crank up SMP's cloud draw area setting and achieve fast, realistic scenes at FL300 and above. - Did we mention big performance improvements? SMP4 is faster than ever. - New 3D precipitation system that represents rain, sleet, wet snow, and dry snow - as well as mixed precipitation that responds automatically to the ambient temperature. Precipitation is even lit by your landing lights! And an whole new precipitation control panel lets you tweak its appearance to your own liking. - Precipitation is tied to individual clouds in SMP4. Rain will start and stop realistically as you fly underneath or through the clouds. - All-new "HD Cloud Puffs" overcast representation! Fly through large, thick overcast layers built from real HD cloud photos, without killing your framerate. Overcast clouds have never looked so good from above and below. - Higher-resolution scattered and broken cumulus clouds, with twice the resolution as SMP3. - Cirrus and cirrocumulus clouds now move realistically relative to your plane's motion. - Works better than ever with Real Weather Connector: more accurate representations of ground fog, thunderstorm placement, and stratus/overcast cloud placement when used with RWC. - Adjusts lighting on distant cloud puffs at night ...and a few more unannounced features yet to come! Screenshots (Click to see large view): Showing the new, doubled maximum cloud draw distance (both images above 30,000 ft) with the new overcast! The all-new SkyMaxx Pro Precipitation Settings Window and showing off some SkyMaxx Pro 3D snow getting lit up by aircraft lights! As explained above, SkyMaxx Pro now has 3D rain, sleet, wet & dry snow! Showing the new HD Clouds Some 3D rain effects shown. Precipitation stops if you are not under a cloud! Showing some gorgeous clouds generated by SkyMaxx Pro 4 as we coast into the sunset. We're excited to show you more! Information on upgrade eligibility: SkyMaxx Pro v4 will be a paid upgrade for all current SkyMaxx Pro v3 owners. Those of you who qualify will receive a 50% off ($19.95 instead of $39.95) upgrade discount which will be valid for 60 days from the time SkyMaxx Pro v4 goes on sale. After this, the product will go to full price for all customers. Information on release: SkyMaxx Pro v4 will be released in as short order as possible. We currently have a beta team being assembled and about to go through Release Candidate builds. Once that is done it's on to packaging and release. We will keep everyone updated as we get closer to the release. It would be safe to say you can see SkyMaxx Pro v4 hit the store this USA holiday season! X-Plane 10 & 11: We will support both X-Plane 10 and 11. There will not be a separate cost for these products. If you purchase SkyMaxx Pro v4 you are assured compatibility with both (keep in mind if adjustments need to be made for X-Plane 11 it may not work on day one, but it will be as quickly as possible after as we will have early access copies to work with. Therefore, it is possible we have SkyMaxx Pro working on the first day of release for X-Plane 11 as well should changes really be necessary). Thanks to everyone for their continued support in this amazing product! See you in the skies!
  3. help regarding ticket

    Eventually.
  4. Well, what does the contact page say about response times when you click Request Reset? For that matter, did you just decide to ignore the big text presented to you after you submitted your ticket?
  5. migrating to new pc

    You do not need to uninstall. You may make clones.
  6. Captains, While the HotFix server is temporarily down, I have created a temporary installer solution which will update your current 737 to 1.0.7. Simply download and run the installer included in the zip. Click here to download. Thank you for your patience today as we worked through some things. Hopefully this helps to heal some of the waiting that's gone on!
  7. Help opening door

    The doors do not open.
  8. Gizmo CTD

    Knowing Ben as I do, I can almost assure you these thoughts did not go through his mind. I won't get into his personal life matters for now, but he's got a lot going on, and for this I'll give him a pass. He's a pretty damn busy guy outside of X-Plane world at the moment with baby #2 and a slew of other things going on. Hopefully other responses here helped to clarify the situation.
  9. Gizmo CTD

    Perhaps if any of us had that kind of time these days we would. Looks to be a nice product. Time is still the issue.
  10. Gizmo CTD

    It means that If you read the Log.txt file posted you'll find this at the end: --=={This application has crashed because of the plugin: [XPLM_PLUGIN_XPLANE]}==-- It is rather ambiguous, and states that the SDK sub system crashed. It's neither xEnviro or Gizmo at fault according to the log. Until it can be proven without doubt that Gizmo is at fault, Ben does not want to go chasing down a rabbit hole, spending money on a product to try and chase it, etc, when it's quite clear that thus far only one of thousands of customers is reporting this, AND X-Plane is not laying blame on Gizmo (X-Plane is usually very good about laying blame in the log). Ben made this clear in a post elsewhere to regarding this subject. Unfortunately there's a few "branches" about this topic, so that may have been hard to follow.
  11. HELP!!!! Ixeg activation

    Glad it's sorted!
  12. [XP11] IXEG needs wheel chocks

    As I recall this is an XP 11 bug.
  13. HELP!!!! Ixeg activation

    Can you show a screenshot and attach your log.txt file located in your X-Plane folder?
  14. HELP!!!! Ixeg activation

    Exactly what is horrible service? You started a post in an entirely different section of these forums days ago. http://forums.x-pilot.com/forums/topic/12422-help-ixeg-activation/?do=findComment&comment=116481 YOU have not responded. That's your own ignorance.
  15. HELP!!!! Ixeg activation

    Did you even run the installer?
  16. SMP4 doesn't seem right on XP11

    That's a classic example of a GPU going bad on the Mac side.
  17. SMP4 Night

    SMP4 does not adjust anything in the night landscape.

  20. Request Reset Issue

    Each and every e-mail you have sent in falls within the window of normal reply time. Each time you send a new e-mail, you bump yourself back to the bottom of the response queue. Sending 4 e-mails as you have over the last few days has not helped your case, so have patience and don't continue bombarding the ticket system with more of the same.
  21. SMP still crashes with metar parsing

    No. Frank was quite clear as to why but I think your limited knowledge of programming is not allowing you to understand why his explanation actually makes sense as to why your request cannot be done.

  23. RWC dropping vis down to 10mile

    I don't know Laminar's official "policy" on this since XP 11 is so new, but I'm pretty sure it was 10 miles to keep your sim running smooth. But yes, it would be X-Plane dropping it, not us. That said, X-Plane 11 is still in its infancy and I would expect big improvements in the next weeks to month on the performance side, which should ultimately alleviate this. Of course, none of this applies if you're actually using X-Plane 10. If that's the case then I'd be scratching my head.
  24. How to remove X-Aviation watermark

    Boy, that sounds like a very old install. Can you take a screenshot just to be sure?
  25. RWC dropping vis down to 10mile

    RWC downloads weather from NOAA (only if Always is selected). It will not mess with X-Plane visibility. If you are using X-Plane 11 then X-Plane will auto drop your visibility to preserve performance.
