  1. First of all, thank you very much for this plane! I've been waiting for an Islander in the sim for a while and yours is great. I know I'm going to have a lot of fun with it. My first impressions are good, however there's one area I feel can be improved on: the sounds. The sounds at idle seem ok, but they really seem to miss the loud, guttural roar of the engines when the power is brought to flight range. This seems to be the case both inside and out. Here are some videos highlighting the sounds of the plane. Just as a quick addition,
  2. Going to the x-aviation store page has shown "we've got something special in store for you.... please check back soon" for a few hours. Maybe they're just getting the store ready? Maybe it was supposed to go live at 4 but something went wrong on the back end?
  3. Very excited for this!! I'll be buying it as soon as it comes out at 4 today. I also plan on painting some liveries for it. I noticed this in the description: ""Includes 9 initial liveries, a blank livery, and paint-kit, with many more liveries to come after release! See some of the liveries here" Would it be possible to make a list of the liveries currently planned or in the works? I wouldn't want to start a repaint project only for that same livery to be released by the devs.
  4. I held off on buying this for a while, but I just did and I love this scenery package! I found just a few small things that I think need addressing 1) When using forkboy's ortho package, I see a line surrounding the area several miles away from the islands. I assume this is a mesh conflict. Maybe we can get a patch for users of the forkboy scenery? Here are a few shots illustrating the issue. The line is visible as a highly aliased blue line near the horizon (this is with 4XSSAA+FXAA if it matters) 2) There is a small seam just north of the runway on So
  5. A while back, quite soon after release, I remember reading somewhere that the IXEG team had plans to model the 737-400 as some sort of expansion to the base aircraft. That was a while ago and I haven't heard anything about it since, so I was wondering if this is still on the table. Of course, I'm not asking for a release date or timeframe or anything, but it would be great to know if the status of the -400 is "yes, we definitely have plans to make it", or if it's been downgraded to "maybe someday, eventually, hopefully". The 400 is my favorite variant of the classic and I would love to h
  6. Woke up. Saw the email. Ran to grab my credit card. I love, love this scenery! I'm going to have a lot of fun flying around, killing time until KARB and KDTW are released Just a suggestion- in the future could you include a version with no ortho tiles? Winter is upon us and to see my snow textures I'll need to remove all the ortho tiles manually, so it would be nice to have an option to just install an alternate version or move some folders around instead.
  7. It's been a while since I flew this plane because I was waiting for the update. Now that it's finally here I'm excited to fly it again! One question: how do you load coroutes into the fmc? What folder and format should they be in?
  8. I just purchased Urban-Maxx, and I'm pleasantly surprised by how it changes the look of cities for such a low price. I was wondering if there is a mod available, or if the developer would consider creating optional Desert textures? Urban-maxx looks great in North America, Europe, and Asia, but in places like the Middle East, East/South Africa, Mexico, and the Southwestern US, the green urban textures don't look that realistic. The 'old city' texture package helps somewhat, but it would be great if a different one could be made tailored to desert environments. Also, now that winter has fi
  9. No need to apologize! I totally understand you must be very busy with the Saab. Thanks for the update and for making this livery
  10. Hi Goran. Did you ever get a chance to complete this?
  11. This would be an interesting one! Pharaoh Airlines only served from 1998 to 2003 and did not fly the 737-300, but they did have the 737-400 which is close enough. Actually the only reason I know about this airline is from seeing pictures of her smaller 737-200 stablemate buried in sand and rotting away at Cairo Airport. I hope someone can make this livery!
  12. On the Maxx-XP website "Seasons" has been shown as WIP for a while now. Is the project still ongoing, or has it been suspended?
  13. Beautiful! What sky color set are you using?
  14. I take it from the radio silence that you're hard at work on this package which I'm sure will raise the bar for XP scenery and attract even more people to this amazing sim. I'm wondering if in your next update you could show off the B/C satellite at DTW? As soon as you release the scenery it will be the new home of my Saab 340 and CRJ-200, so I'd love to see a preview! Keep up the good work and I'm seriously anxious for this scenery!
  15. Wow, I'm not usually a fan of fictional liveries but I really like the Lufthansa look on the Saab. Thanks, I can't wait to download those two! I already made two requests (and one is being graciously done by Goran), but I'd also like to request the Estonian Air Regional regular livery to compliment the 'hockey bird' version that comes with the plane. I think the Estonian scheme looks especially smart on the Saab
