    Environment Force Discussion Thread

    Well thank goodness we fixed this and have given control for it in our latest beta update. 😉 This is not related to EF, rather the weather engine in use. Actually, this is not a fault of EF, it's how the sim renders cirrus in its default state. We will look at giving more control over this. To be fair, if you're not sure, then why blame EF for that? See what @Rasterfahnder stated above. If that doesn't work, no worries, we have a more solid solution for our HDR in the next beta build working well.
  3. Hi, unless you are running old addons that specifically require the old FSX SimConnect, do not install any of the clients from the redist folder. SimConnect works without them (it always did, but that part is even more true with P3D V4). Did you at any point create SimConnect configuration files on that machine? SimConnect.ini, SimConnect.xml, SimConnect.cfg? If you did, remove them all. Best regards
  4. Everything was removed after I did a clean install of P3D. ActiveSky would not connect after a re-install.
  5. What is your name on our forum and I will take a look at your account.
  6. Yes - no problems whatsoever.
  7. Have you read the P3d troubleshooting tips in this forum? I suggest you remove all your 3rd party Content, run stock and a stock plane, and seeif it still CTDs. If not then add your adding one at a time and test each to discover if one of them is the problem.

    ImagineSim WSSS Pauses / Stutters

    This one appears in this forum about once a month. I found that reducing the scenery draw distance helped a lot since I noticed the long frames were occurring when the nose was pointed at the city. I don't need to see the city when I'm on the airport! LOL

    P3Dv4.5 Airport Data Missing or Old

    Like most hobbies, one has to keep adding stuff and that is a part of the experience. I don't have CYYC but FSimStudios does have one in the marketplace. There are very few places in the world where I use default scenery. I think it's ugly and prefer the very beautiful work by folks like Flightbeam and many others. If there isn't a commercial solution then usually you can find a suitable one in the AVSIM library, which is where I found my ZGSZ complete with correct runway and navaids. The cost of adding scenery might be a burden to some, but I find that even with the large number I have purchased over time that this hobby is still cheaper than bowling.
  10. I'm surprised no one has chimed in? I've done a repair install of windows,at this point. This is what I have found in the ActiveSky and Chaseplane Logs: Chaseplane log states "Attempting to connect to P3D's SimConnect P3D SimConnect not ready" ActiveSky log states "AS_P3Dv4_SimConnectionLog.txt 1:22:21 PM:0649-Pre Connect P3D_Connected = False 1:22:21 PM:0650-P3D Connect Pre Attempt: Instantiated = False / mConnected = False 1:22:21 PM:0761-Sim general message:Sim Msg: fsx_simconnect is NOTHING ... 1:22:24 PM:0138-Sim general message:Sim Msg: Failed to connect - Please ensure FS is running: Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component. 1:22:24 PM:0139-P3D Connect Post Attempt: Instantiated = True / mConnected = False 1:22:24 PM:0139-P3D Connection Attempted 1:22:24 PM:0139-Post Connect P3D_Connected = False"

    For everyone that is annoyed by the simulation of eye adaption to light. Just turn down the value for "time delta" in the mini UI to zero and that function is off. I like (my value: 0.23) it but I can see it can be annoying. The points 1, 2 and 3 I did not have those or just dont understand (" I'm not sure if it's not hitting my PC to much"?). Performance is great on my system. Use AS4 with weather smoothing ON. I Adjusted the max visibility in AS4 to 200 because I get slightly better performance in bad weather. All my visibility settings are handeld by EF in auto mode. Thank you REX.

    Landing the Dornier 228

    Hi, I'm looking for a bit of advice about how to set tings up for landing the D228. I start out OK, the plane follows takes off and follows the flightpath but I seem to be doing something wrong in terms of capturing the localiser when I reach the initial fix. Before reaching that, I set up the Localiser frequency in the Garmin and on the radio console and then shift change GPS to Vloc on reaching the FAP. Am I doing this wrong (which I think I must be) and if so what should I be doing? Any help gratefully received. Thanks, Mark

    P3dv4.5 will not load

    I had the same problem. A fresh upgrade from 4.4 to 4.5 would display the splash screen for about 30 seconds, which would then disappear without ever getting to the scenario loading menu. Checking the event viewer showed P3d.exe had crashed with an ntdll error. This happened on every load attempt. I removed various add-ons one at a time. When I set the WXAdvantage “active” entry to “false” in dll.xml, the sim loaded fully with no errors, so I’m pretty sure that was the culprit. I just checked the Rex forums and note that they have released an updated version of WXAdvantage with P3D 4.51 compatibility within the last day or so. I’ll give that a try later today.

    P3dv4.5 will not load

    One hint I found was to use ALT+TAB and see if there are any grey bars appearing as part of the desktop screen. These are usually caused by addons not yet compatibile with the version of prepar3d you have installed. It's a fragile beast since 4.0 moved further and further away from the FSX it was sired from.
  18. I have published 3 videos on youtube regarding my upgrade installation processes. Here are the links: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L871hsIaNdE&t=11s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5e2rKlrBd0&t=45s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayPsSZYvGT0 Thanks for watching.

    747-400 vs 8i

    What is the difference in flying the 400 vs. the 8i in terms of operating the aircraft and it systems. Are the systems that different ? Or is the flight difference like that of the 777-200 vs the 777-300?

    have you checked your graphics settings? After updating XP recently and when loading up the scenery I noticed the RWY, markings etc were all gone. Until I turned up the graphics setting wich had been set to default by the XP update without me noticing. And suddenly everything was back to normal :)

    ORBX May sale on

    The gates are listed as Gates in GSX and sorted by size. Small, Medium and Heavy is just a term coined from MS for FS that you've grown accustomed to and isn't used anywhere in the real world. You can always change them to suit your needs with ADE. Unfortunately, ORBX's YSCB is quite outdated now as there is a whole new terminal building there with more gates as well as larger ones to accommodate the Singapore and Qatar B77W's which I stuffed into the current setup.
