I saved, exited, updated, repaired liveries, and then reloaded. No issues.

I haven't been able to get myself to use pause or save while in flight since the 1980's when reading books like Realistic Commercial Flying With Flight Simulator by John Rafferty (Compute Books) among several others. There were times when pausing was needed to read a little ahead, but even then it felt like sacrilege to pause .🤓

Coming up on VESUN , about 860 NM to go, I can wait 2 more hours 🤩

does it appear to be anything like this

You folks do realize that fuel is loaded in gallons and pounds? 🙂

Weird, although version check tells me there's an update, the notification page is empty, anyone else seeing this?

Hi I haven't touched my laptop since the 747-8 was released. The first update required us to download new installers and this one will be done through the ops center... my question is do I have to download the installer if I haven't done any of the updates or does this second update bypass the need to downlod the installer?

Hi everyone.  When I check the version an update is available and I go to install then it does a bit of installing for 5 seconds then disappears and says I need to update again?  Running P3d V4.

there where two updates one for the -400 and one for the -8.

Robert would a better course of action be to have QOTS clean installation rather going through the OC as I’m still on the old version from your previous post to uninstall old version of QOTS and install new version from your account?Im afraid I’m getting a bit confused now must be the old age.😀

Regards.

You have to download the full installer, uninstall the old version, install the new, reboot, run P3D (important!) and them run OC to check if you still have the microupdate required.

If you downloaded the -400 update from the 22nd (which you needed for the -8 to run), then you can just update via the OC, no need to do any uninstalling etc. That's the whole point of the OC!

How has he done that? 😜

Such an engine weighs tons.

What's wrong, are the in board pylons supposed to be longer?

I was loading it in pounds, so I'm not sure what the issue is. The PMDG fuel loader only gives you the option to load in either pounds or kilograms, so I don't know where gallons would come into play here.

The fuel order will be given in pounds or  kilograms. The aircraft refueling panel will have a digital preset for each tank also in pounds or kilograms. 

The refueling operator will annotate the amount of fuel dispensed on the aircraft load sheet (given to the captain at the conclusion of fueling) in either pounds or kilograms. This is done by noting the total fuel weight shown on the refueling panel at the beginning and end of refueling and subtracting the beginning reading from the final reading.

BUT the refueling truck (or bowser) meters will show the amount dispensed in either gallons or liters, and the final paperwork that the refueler turns in to his office (for billing purposes), will be in one of those two units of measurement.

The pilot’s fuel request is not given in gallons, because the weight per gallon is not exact. It varies with the temperature and the specific gravity of the fuel in the truck or underground tanks. That can vary from day to day depending on the supplier of the fuel.

In general, Jet-A weighs 6.7 pounds per gallon, but depending on the API index of a particular load of fuel in the truck, sometimes it may be a bit more than 6.7 pounds, and sometimes a bit less.

With high-density fuel, 10,000 pounds might equate to 1,470 gallons, while low-density fuel might equate to 1,515 gallons.

Each aircraft fuel tank contains at least one compensator probe that measures the actual fuel density and applies a correction factor to the quantity displayed on the aircraft fuel gauges.

Typically the only aircraft where the pilot would request fuel directly in gallons or liters would be on smaller biz jets without single point refueling - where fuel has to be dispensed directly into the tanks with overwing nozzles, much like refueling an automobile.

Right, and I get that. I guess I wasn't understanding why Wilhelm responded to by post the way he did. The issue I outlined in my post was if I am requesting 248,000 pounds of fuel to be loaded, I should NOT get only 230,000 pounds of fuel loaded. That's an 18,000-pound difference.
