    More AI Traffic

    BTW, if you do decide to go the AIG route, most of the aircraft you will need are linked on the AIG forum page titled "Looking for a AI Model"

    Ethiopia crash

    The reality is that there is not (and never will be) enough training time available to practice every conceivable emergency. You get a small cross section of situations in the box that exercise the major skill sets (e.g. single-engine ops, rapid decompression/emergency descent, ground evacuation etc) but the number of possible emergency situations are legion and practicing them all is just not possible in the limited time alotted. That's why we have QRH checklists and why pilots are expected to understand system operations in detail. You are absolutely expected to work through all but the most catastrophic emergencies using basic cockpit resource management, the available procedural guidance, your systems knowledge, and your flying ability and proficiency. For example, there are myriad possible smoke/electrical fire scenarios, maybe hundreds of them, depending on if it's a component, a bus fault, a wiring fault etc. No way to practice every variation or even most of them. You're trained in the first save the pink flesh (get your O2 and smoke mask on), have one pilot flying, and get the other into the QRH checklist to work through the decision tree and (hopefully) find/deal with the problem. Depending on what it is (or if you're even able to definitively identify what it is) you may end up having to depower equipment or even entire electrical busses, and both pilots have to put their thinking caps on to make sure they understand the systems implications of what pulling those breakers means. There are so many possible branches to these kinds of scenarios there's no way to practice them all...but heck yeah, you have to be ready to deal with all of it despite not having seen that exact problem in the sim.

    Virtualcol A220 Released!

    I really find the sounds very dissapointing.. Anybody found an alternative?
  6. Hi. What might be some causes for a CTD when trying to increase the Number of World Objects to anything higher than "Minimal"? I've tried all the usual tricks (Checked RAM, re-installed XP, latest video driver, no 3rd-party plugins, rebuilt Preferences,TDR adjustments, etc.) to fix the problem. My specs are: 3770K@4.4GHz., 24GB RAM, 1080Ti SC w/430.64 driver, XP 11.34r1 and Win 10Pro v.1809. Thanks in advance. Jeff Smith

    Autopilot popup panel enhancements

    The VS wheel between the seats clicks but the popup does not (without my fix..) As for the HDG knob, that is the way it works in other airplanes.. maybe the Falcon is different..? Who has the Pilot's Guide for a Collins or Sperry autopilot?
  8. You'll be good to go. Although I don't know if you'll need the Oculus Tray Tool (OTT) Doubtless HiFlyer will know.

    Ethiopia crash

    In regards to the EXTREME FORCES lets not forget about the elevator feel shift function. Although it can also be instigated by the SMYD during a stall by reducing hydraulic pressure, in flight the faster the airspeed the harder the pressure will be on the controls because that's what those two static probes on the Vertical stabilizer are there for, they directly put static pressure on the feel system. So regardless of what caused the initial aircraft nose down attitudes - They had no chance of trimming manually at those airspeeds as has been demonstrated as they were the ones who put these EXTREME FORCES on the airframe by keeping the throttles firewalled. The mistakes made during the recovery phase are a big contributing factor in this accident. Regardless on what side of the fence you sit on learn more about the aircrafts systems and how they factored into the recovery or lack thereof.
  10. Will this work with P3D automatically, or do you need other addons to make it work?

    Full price of the license
  12. That makes even less sense. I mean, what are they doing? Are they acting offended? Did i get it right?

    I'm sorry Jean-Luc, but it did not work. It only started when I started as administrator. I did as you instructed above, but I can't attach a copy. Howard (DESKTOP-Q847QE\Howard)

    Thanks. I was assuming it. At the moment I'm preparing a flight and closed SF 😊. I foregot to mention bevore: Federico was of great help for me getting EF the way I wanted. I'm not a good tweaker 😂. Regards, Robert

    Hello Reader, Good idea, thanks but I no luck there either. Eric

    P3d and updates

    No, you don't have to pay for the updates. You may have to occasionally upgrade 3rd party add-ons after major updates though, usually for a discount. EDIT: I've only had P3d since 4.4, so I wasn't aware that you pay for updates for new versions. How much are these (i.e. V5?)

    P3d and updates

    You only have to pay for major upgrades. If you buy 4.5, then, if there is a 4.6 released it would be free. If the next rlease is V5, then you buy again. Hope this helps Stu
  21. Thanks lol. Not only was this my first repaint but I am learning to use Photoshop at the same time so it made it even harder. Don't know what problem you're having with the Md-11 but I'm sure you will be able to figure it out so don't give up.

    Water lapping sounds in floatplanes

    Thanks very much for all your replies: I did actually have a go at finding a wav file from another aircraft which had water lapping sounds and modified the sound.cfg as per your example Charlie - and it worked! Fantastic. Thanks very much!
  23. Hi, I am building an i9 system that will power 3 4K projectors in a large cockpit setup using P3D v4.5 For performance needs would I be better off with 2 2080tis in SLI or a single Titan?

    P3d and updates

    Maybe a stupid question,i'm going to change from FSX to P3d,but do you have to pay for every update of P3d. Thanks Peter
  25. It's worth it IMHO. If you can also stretch to buying the Cloud Shadows add-on then that is great for increasing the immersion in the sim!
