    FMS Database taking a long time to load ?
  3. No problem glad we could clarify that for you.
  4. @RXP Hey Jean-Luc, I got a little confused from the thread replies whether the update was meant to try to fix the issue in the AirFoilLabs 172. I tried the new version and unfortunately, the problem still persists. Just an FYI. -Paul
  5. All good points, Frank. I only remember his remark about the wonky gauges, so it stuck with me. Stew
  6. Sounds good. I'll set it to 5m and do some testing over the next few days. Thanks. To answer the airport question, it's KMSP by Flightbeam.
  7. He does have the readings from the digital engine monitoring gauges as well, and clearly that is what he focuses on. But as per that comment he made, is it wonky gauges or is it the the calibration of the levers/cables? Seems that if the gauges are wonky, then shouldn't the levers be at matching settings? If the calibration is off from lever to lever, then wouldn't calibrating them align the gauge readings? I have watched videos from another Cessna twin pilot and he also seems to index his mixture lever positions.
  8. I have found that decreasing the scenery distance actually helps. I tried the tweaks to increase distance and I ran into severe long frames at airports near big cities with lots of scenery objects whenever nose of plane pointed in the direction of those objects. On final approach within 5 nm your airport objects should have already loaded. Decreasing this value does not decrease the quality of terrain textures, only the objects like buildings and wind farms.
  9. How much more FPS will I see with an i7 9700K?

    That is the general idea. That way you can try out texture replacement addons too without actually replacing anything in your simulator core folders. I did this with Rex Worldwide Airports HD for example, so I can turn it on or off when needed.
  11. Yes Pete, I watched all the reviews on YouTube and they all said the same, A top class product. For my pocket there a lot of money but the build quality is there and the sound like all the reviews I have to say is incredible.

    New airports in ultimate traffic live

    UTL devs has dipped I swear 😞 I think the guys wife had awful cancer so he had to stop it. Why can't any other company produce a HD AI pack? I don't understand...
  13. I will have problems such as yours or even during a landing if my terrain mesh setting is further to the right than 5 m. This problem has been around awhile and usually is quite common where the runway is near water such as CYVR, KSAN and VHHH for example.

  15. Just picked it up. Flies really nice, but what word not allowed put the fuel valve on a ledge in front of the seats where it can't be seen? < just rhetorical > 🙂

    By the way... I only started working for Aerosoft Corporate this year, so my post about the DRM debacable wasn't about competition. To be clear, the FSL Airbus and the Aerosoft Airbus are two different products for two different markets, there is no competition from our perspective and if we felt otherwise then we'd have taken them to court over using our Virtual Cockpit in their Release version of their Airbus... but we excepted their apology and moved on, but it was a total camper move to even use our VC during development, let alone release. Keep in mind that VC Graphics represent the largest single amount of work of any airliner project. Moreover, two weeks ago I reminded our CEO and Program Manager that I would warn the entire flight sim community if I found a security issue with our brand new Networked Based Connected Flight Deck (which even though it's in Beta, it's really something!). That was me reminding them both of what was essentially a threat. I have a long history of doing what is right in and for the flight sim world, and I think most people know that I care more about flight sim and the community than any of the developers I've worked for (Majestic, Leonardo, Aerosoft, and many more). But if any of them pulled the a stunt with their DRM software then I'd not only quit, I'd warn the community and then hammer them for it. But they are all wonderful people and terrific developers who truly care about our community, and they would never do something like that. Best wishes.

    GTN750 Integration WIP

    I now have thanks to Ramon his very good GTN 750 mod. Embarrassed to ask but I have not been able to even get the F50 to follow a simple "direct to" command on the GTN. It must be I don't have the right combination between the GTN and AP. I have entered the airport correctly and it is activated but don't know in GPS or VLOC mode or what do with the CDI and OBS buttons.Trying to avoid altogether the FMS. Falcon just going in circles . .
  19. And there was me thinking theirs a dedicated screenshot Vid forum according to the mods for this, but some users are allowed to bend the rules and others are not now we know thanks.
  20. I believe I need a CPU upgrade... Never installed a CPU, sounds scary and don't want to take it to a professional. I need to look it up 🙂

    Carenado's best bizjet?

    I have the phenom 100 - don't fly it because the G1000 is to hard on my old computer I have the Hawker 850xp and this flies well, or at least better than most I have the S550 and I haven't flown this much I have the Premier and what a piece of junk! so many odd little things keep happening, throttle textures disappear and I get flap warnings when I shouldn't be etc. I'm about ready to uninstall it and call it quits on this word not allowed. It's a shame because I really do like it. so does he have any decent bizjet that's better than the premiere? I like his planes the actual planes but I'm getting tired of Carenado the company and the sloppy job they do.

    Slow to Climb?

    I haven't verified yet but the Auto CL power settings may be wrong as in it's too low. I def agree use IAS to climb (first Carenado plane I think I've ever recommended that for LOL) You may have to also wait until you reach your cruise altitude to pull them back to Auto (if you do at all)......I'm currently looking into the feasibility of doing a mod with this corrected along with integrating hotel mode and possibly a smaller VAS footprint....However, with my CJ2+ mod, and possibly up coming Phenom 100 mod, I think I may be reaching mod saturation :D.......we'll see.

    Sorry my friend, I have never, not once in my life asked any moderator to close any post/thread I was involved in - at least the best of my recollection. If you have information to the contrary I'd would really appreciate you sharing it. I do recall posting about the FSLabs DRM issue, but I would have done that regardless of the company/developer who did such a thing. At no time did I bash the product, and it's a terrific one in my opinion save for the fps issue that many have. So I'm not sure what any of that has to do with this thread. Well, I'll have to disagree that they are being respectful, but it's okay, I understand the OWNER of a product voicing displeasure, as I've said quite a few times in this thread. The CRJ was developed by a different developer, not Aerosoft. Aerosoft is merely the publisher. So I don't see he relevance in this thread. In fairness, I don't understand why you even posted. All I did was provide facts here, and I think I've been very open, honest, and respectful in doing so even when others have only wanted to create annomosity. I have to say, thinking about it, I'm going to have to ask that you retract your statement about my asking for a thread to be closed, or provide some evidence of that. Would you please do so?
  25. I found the video absorbing and very interesting. I kept comparing my panels and switches to his! Wish I could color-code my switches as he has done. He also explained why his mixture levers are offset the way they are--"fuel pressure gauges are wonky." Worth the watch, definitely. Stew
