    FB's KDEN dynamic lightning improved in 4.5

    No, I'm serious. For example, taxiing over to 34L from Terminal B, I'd have DL only looking in a certain direction in an angle, now it doesn't go away all the way.

    Flightbeam KDEN New Update

    As a bit of an aside, does anyone know if they announced that they will be updating terminal 1 at KSFO?

    That's a Very Pistol, it's (typically) for signalling the ground when returning from a night raid. Crews would be pre-briefed on which colour flare to respond with for a given colour of the day, this being to avoid spoofing since the answer colour would not be the same as the query colour. So, the ground would fire a specific coloured flare, the returning aircraft would then need to respond with the correct answer colour, and if it did so, the defences would know it was a friendly aircraft as a result of a correct answering colour and then not open fire on it. It was common on PFF (pathfinder force) target marker aeroplanes.
  7. So does that dynamic lightning only appear during thunderstorms? πŸ˜‰
  8. They haven't updated their scenery yet, to the best of my knowledge. So it would be just 4.5 improvements I guess. There is/was some mention of them releasing a SODE update soon. I would take that as Soontm πŸ˜†

    4.5 Hotfix - Very Disappointed

  10. You caught me on this, Aharon...πŸ™‚.... I was reading somewhere the Norwegian Airports know very well (a) how to clean snow (b) how to de-ice aircraft... Very nice and "busy" pictures here...!

    4.5 Hotfix - Very Disappointed

    Hi Simbol, thanks for the reply. i did check the REG KEY for the exceleration entry, it is not there. from your instructions on a previous thread i thought that this was the desired setup. how would i go about entering this into my REGKEY?

    What a Premier!

    "I usually add one payware title a month..."...That would require permission for me from the higher authorities...depending on cost....πŸ™‚....but, seriously, glad you're enjoying both the SIMs, along with some perspective from real flight...that many of us here (me included) don't have... Beautiful plane here (could pass for a Citation) and also beautiful pictures...and, the plane's interior exudes plush and luxury, from what I can tell...!

    Flightbeam KDEN New Update

    Nothing in there says it’ll be released in a week or so.

    CTD With Orbx scenery/Prepar3d 4.5

    Ok I follow. So is there a way to check to see if this is the case? I also came up with a thought could the EU England be conflicting with TE GB South since things being displayed in the south of the UK would be duplicated? Jason
  16. I'm not sure I understand the question. Are you talking about tracking exposed to direct sunlight?
  17. The YS-11 by NAMC (Nihon Aeroplane Manufacturing Company) was a 1960s turboprop (60-seater) aircraft that was the only true Japanese entry into commercial aviation. It was built by a joint venture of five (or so) companies that included: (Mitsubishi, Kawasaki, Fuji) heavy industries. BTW, all these three companies have played a role, more recently, in the production of B787. One of the primary designers of YS-11 was Jiro Horikoshi, who was responsible for the famous WW II fighter, A6M Zero. The YS-11 can be said to consist of, "U.S. Parts + British Engines + Japanese Assembly" e.g. the aluminum was from ALCOA, the landing gear from Goodyear, and of course the Rolls-Royce engines were British. It was a highly capable (and well-liked) aircraft, known for its superior performance (and capacity) in hot and high (short-runway) conditions of the time. It even broke through to the U.S. market for Piedmont Airlines. β€œWe searched the world over for a plane which would operate safely in and out of small, mountainous airports,” had said, president of the company. β€œThe YS-11 was the only one we could find which would do it on an economical basis.” Piedmont officials had said the YS-11 had the best power weight ratio β€” it could lift more weight out of the (Appalachian) mountain airports than any American (Convair was one of the primary competitors) or other plane they could find. YS-11's advantage came because of the state-of-the-art Rolls-Royce Turboprop (Dart) engines - the same ones that had powered the Vickers Viscount. However, there was just one place where the Japanese engineers miscalculated; their error, which they fixed soon, was anatomical rather than mechanical: the first planes had seats (built to Japanese standards) were too narrow (and too hard) for American consumers... The livery, I've selected to fly here, is for SWAL (Southwest Air Lines - not to be confused with the U.S. (low-cost) carrier Southwest Airlines). This Southwest Air Lines had operated domestic services, in Japan, since 1967. It changed its name to JTA (Japan Transocean Air) in July 1993, is now majority-owned by JAL (Japan Airlines), and no longer flies any YS-11. For scenery, I've fallen back to one of my least-used (Orbx) add-ons, the Wales, for a dusk flight, north to south on the western part of the country, mostly across rolling hills, from Warton Aerodrome (EGNO) to Cardiff Airport (EGFF). One interesting observation: On approach to Cardiff, in one of the shots, you can locate the (coal-powered) Aberthaw Power Station, a prominent landmark on the South Wales coast (initially I thought it was a Nuclear Power Station). Thanks for viewing these images of this (SIM) plane, may not be high-fidelity, but certainly unique in its own right. [Aerosim(YS-11)/Orbx(Wales)/REX]
  18. Looks like it will be released in a week or so. See here. Scroll all the way to the last post. Have a good Memorial Day!

    Assume that's a flare gun, used for various signalling purposes; https://www.quora.com/Why-did-WWII-bombers-fire-off-flares-when-they-were-landing

    Flysimware next project 2019

    Instant purchase from me if it's a 414. I really hope we have the option to add/remove winglets and the option to use the G500/600 units from Flight1. πŸ™‚ Can't wait to see what Mr. Bacon will do to the textures too. FSW is going to be the industry leader very soon.
  22. Can anyone help us figure out what this is ?
  23. Not sure if a cargo MD-11 does Louisville to Tokyo Narita in one hop, but this is the sim, and the specs say she has the range...
  24. Hi Nico, I'd like to ask a quick opinion. I'm currently using FSX and my PC is in the middle range performances. While it's pretty much fluid especially shortly before touchdowns slightly reduces my performance. I currently use autopilot on for your program, and 20 updates per second. Is there any other feature I can set in order to save a bit? Best
  25. As mentioned, I already did. KMSP isn't under my AEC, most likely due to being installed via the add-on method instead of the old scenery.cfg method. No but I can comfortably confirm it's due to Vector, just need to find the Vector files to disable it. No, figured this was a Vector issue, so OrbX's forum would be more relevant. Just asked here as well, in case someone had a quick-fix solution, which files to disable. Good suggestion. Couldn't see anything related to elevation / mesh / compatibility though. Yeah, first thing I tried, only relevant file that came up in the search. Didn't seem to do the trick, unfortunately. Some other Vector files are at work here.
  26. To be announced at Computex 2019. In the same article is a history of the MSI Lightening series of video cards, all the way back to the beginning, 2009. See the article here. A good Memorial Day to all! P.
  27. Central America 4: Nicaragua to Panama Managua, Nicaragua (MNMG) to Santiago, Panama (MPSA), 498 nautical miles. Stopping at a few airports along the way, with mountains, volcanoes and a few coastal resorts thrown in. Better write-up to follow tomorrow. Flightplans PLN format GFP format - should be straightforward, no faffing needed. Aircraft Same as the previous flights, we're looking for something quite fast to cover the distances. 300kts cruise ideal, 250kts minimum is my suggestion. Private jets, fast turboprops, subsonic military jets, warbirds, all good choices. I did my test flying in the BAe Hawk, which was quite fun. But there's a 2300ft runway on the route.... (at least it's at sea level!). Scenery Orbx FTX Global textures + FTX NA landclass are a good combination, especially with an addon mesh for the mountains. Some additional freeware enhancements will follow tomorrow when I've finished testing them all. Particulars Date and time: Saturday, 25th May, 2019, 1800 UTC. Where: AVSIM RTWR Teamspeak - Casual Flights Channel Teamspeak Server Address: ts.teamavsim.com Cross-Platform Multiplayer: JoinFS. (FSX, FSX-SE, and P3D). If you want to help others enjoy the multiplayer experience, don't forget to enter your aircraft details on the multiplayer spreadsheet (linked here). Your courtesy will save others a lot of time and effort. Thanks! ο»Ώ
