I get half frame rates with an fs9 model, which tbh isn't worth it after turning down most of the scenary settings

No, there will likely be transparency issues with the gauge clickspots as well. In other words, gauges showing up where they shouldn't be.

Thats unfortunate, i hope there will be an fsx version... But IF you were to make it fsx native, can you give and estimation as to how long it would take to release it from the time you start?

brad9825 - one thing you should've learnt by now is that PA don't give out timescales unless they are really close to releasing something!

Guys stop moaning about not getting an FSX VC...most other flight sim companies have moved to FSX, giving me and other FS9 users no new aircraft...none to get excited about anyways, so stop moaning! This is our chance to actually have a really nice aircraft, FSX you now have Carenado, we don't, and there are a whole load of companies like that that have stopped FS9 aircraft and focused solely on FSX. Don't be selfish...

GREAT work PA, keep it up!

Its not moaning and not selfish. PA produce high quality model and it is freeware. Ask microsoft why they release FSX. If there only one FS,none of this problem will happen(FSXvsFS9).

Incredibly irrational. With your reasoning, every company should release one game, only. With that rate, we would only have some FS 3.1.

This was stupid, sorry.

;) I'm not arguing that every company must release only one game. Just telling the fact that every game company is release many version of game. That what happen here,microsoft release fs9 and fsx. Some asking for fs9 model,some asking for fsx model. So no side is winning others. its level. That my point. No side is moaning or selfish.

Nice! How the mighty Project Airbus has caused YOU such disappointment. tsk tsk. Narcissus be thy name by any chance?

It doesnt ever occur to YOU that what Project Airbus does/has done/will do... does NOT revolve around YOUR OWN individual opinion??

You still have the choice to go & get other stuff that has a 380 for FSX.. PA isnt the only group to model aircraft. If you cant appreciate the hard work, dont judge them on YOUR expectations either.

I concur to Tranceaddict's statement. There are plenty of companies that have gone to FSX, and the people that actually have a brain, and still use FS2004 have to sit here and watch companies come out with great products for FSX. To Brett-Hill, I really hate coming on Project Airbus to see status updates on the new A320 V2.1, and seeing you spew your stupid opinion. I shouldn't have to come on here, and see this. This is a thread for updates, not irrelevant opinions. ;) P.S. Unlike some people, I actually DO appreciate the work being done by the team here! Keep up the great work, and don't stop!! -Handle

a) I currently have NO Opinions posted on the A320 v2.1 thread so that is a false accusation (besides.. isnt the whole point of a forum is to voice an opinion)
b) it is only spitefull and childish for you to think of it as taking revenge on fsx users as there are many new fsx products being developed ... companies are designing for fsx rather than fs9 because they feel they can make more money from it, simple as

I was prepared to put this whole thing behind me before you posted that here with false accusations on me and comments on fsx users which will only draw the discussion further and further away from the topic it was meant to be.
and the people that actually have a brain, and still use FS2004
That is just something to seed an arguement which as you should know... does not belong in this topic

I think you'll seem to be confused..

One is PA's own efforts and gauges.
The other is an integration with VASFMC's features.

They are 2 separate feature sets!

Made a flight into VHHH earlier, took 2 pics. I'm trying a new setup for the ENB mod but it might be a bit exaggerated. The pics are unedited.

That is astonishingly impressive Mr. Mayer! The vc is looking increasingly impressive and has already surpassed the expectations I or anyone could have imagined for it.

I had to read the 'pics unedited' part again to believe it since it looks realistic. Thanks! Looking forward to keeping track of this project. :mrgreen:

The ENB module has nothing to do with the A380 model at all, it is a general flight simulator extension that adds light and bloom effects.

Well, Im never making a joke again. Fuck it.


We expect it'll be out 'soon' (and you should too if you can put two and two together). We never give out release dates—or 'a projected time when release is hoped to happen by'—'cos people will be asking why's it not out yet if we miss it
