SSW A310-300 - Overall Worst Add-on!?

Dear all,

a few months ago, while waiting for PSS to release updates of their products, I wanted to get my hands on a professional FS9 add-on. Thought about the PMDG 737-600/700 but then went for the SSW A310-300.

Paid USD 36.95 on their website and received an activation code. Installed the entire package, but when I tried to insert the activation code into the little box provided I only got error messages. Hence I contacted SSW support.

Sent them a detailed message about what errors I get, but what I got in reply was broken English drivel. I asked for my money back but this was turned down.

Now for some reason I can in fact run the A310, but the entire resolution of the cockpit is low, compared to PSS products. The visual model is OK, probably the only good thing about the package. I cannot start the engines according to the procedure provided in the documentation.

Thus, I have not flown a single flight with the A310, and my money is wasted.
In the future I will stick to PSS, who have a very high standard, and even though later than anticipated, delivered a working FS9 update for all their recent products. Particularly the support at PSS is awesome.

Well, just wanted to hear any other opinions and warn about SSW. An update for the A310 is due out but who knows when...

Anyway, here are the two websites...

Yeah I say that A310 looks pretty bad.

PSS seems nice, especially their Dash-8. I don't like their A320, as the nose doesn't look correct. I'd say PMDG is the best, their 737 and Beech are awesome!

Does the Beech have a proper panel, with FMS etc?
You are correct about the PSS ABPro nose, but the panel, flight dynamics and exterior model make up for this. My last few flights (FRA-HAM-FRA-MUC-FRA-LHR) have all been on the A321, I just love it! Coupled with Project AI and some decent scenery Fs9 really makes for a great experience... Now if only ATC could handle the volumes of traffic at LHR...  Big thumbs up

Look at the Beech, it's amazing! And for $14.95, it's not bad!!

Keep your eyes open now. SSW merged with CLS with the A310 but I already don't like CLS since I tried there A340.

Excellent Exterior Model and details including Main gear trucks that STAY on the ground no matter what angle the 340 is pointing at. The panel is quite inferior and is something I would expect to find for free at Avsim. But like they say, they make planes to fly, not to spend hours on just configuring for a flight.... which I rather prefer for the realism.

The flight dynamics of the A340 are TERRIBLE... but it is no surprise why, the FDEs are done by Warren from POSKY which I have had bad experiences with, especially the Boeings from POSKY. I really don't appreciate an A346 stalling at 160 KNTS in the middle of a landing 200 ft above for touchdown.... NOT ACCURATE at all.
