    North Pole Scenery Issues

    Perhaps.. I get the squished clouds, but near the pole I just saw white As I got a little closer, the "block of clouds" (I presume this is LOD dictated..) became perpendicular to my flightpath. I got the momentary speed up as the world rotated around me lol then the latitude began decreasing again.

    HDR Lighting Settings P3D v4.5

    Good day. I use a 4K monitor and have been experimenting with the "Brightness, Bloom and Saturation" settings in P3D. I was just wondering what settings are being used in the community and the reasons behind using those settings...just to get an idea where to start. Regards.

    Database Error after Domain Change

    Hi Dave, I have just switched to the Administrator account to check if the problem persists with another account. I do not want to run it normally under this account, so I don't think, that it is necessary to reset the license. I have already tried to run P2ATC as administrator, but this did not solve the problem either. I will send you the screenshot of the error message. Ulrich

    New Release expected Today!

    I suppose you may have a valid point but Carenado named the forum A42 500 Series, not AR or ATR anything. I say you may have a valid point in that it is hard for me to go through their product site and find where they refer to it as AR or ATR. It may be there. It is just that I didn't do an in-depth search of the product site. Now, I see some of our members refer to it as an AR or ATR but not Carenado. Now, in the video which I updated below, the aircraft fuselage will show ATR 42-500. If you Google A42 500 Series, you'll see a lot of results from Carenado. Maybe you should instead ask our members why they called it an AR 42-500. Shame on them! 😎

    Sounds like it might be your security software/settings causing the problem. The site is available and working normally. Dave

    Database Error after Domain Change

    Ulrich, Your initial problem with the Microsoft DB might have been solved by running the program as Admin by right clicking on the icon or program file and selecting "Run as administrator" from the menu. You can also change a property to always run as administrator. Now that you've uninstalled and reinstalled to a different user account, I will need to reset your license key so it can be used again. Please send me your license key to admin@pilot2atc.com so I can reset it. DO NOT post it here. If have additional issues with database errors after getting the program registered again and running as Admin, send me a screenshot of the error message box via email and I'll work with you to resolve it. Dave

    Hot starts with Bill's mods

    Bill, that is an excellent guide to starting a turbine engine. Thank you for explaining not only the how-to, but the reason why generators are often turned off as a part of starting the second engine.
  10. I have noticed huge hirizontal stab deflection in the cruise as well. But my main problem with SkySim MD11 is the autopilot which is simply unpredictable... does anyone experiance significant loss of altitude on low altitude/ low speed turns, on approach for example? The aircraft starts to decent immediatelly after HDG or NAV turn is initiated.

    North Pole Scenery Issues

    Do you use active sky? It might be something to do with their high latitude cloud fix. I remember before AS16 in P3D and FSX getting close to the poles caused clouds and terrain to squish up. Maybe as part of their fix stretching it back out, it no longer meets a nice point anymore?

    New Release expected Today!

    Having bought the A42, Shorts 360, F50 and Saab 340, I'm going to at (some point) do a deep dive into the cfg's, air and sound files to see how much 'copy and pasting' has gone on. The sounds and feel of these aircraft have in my opinion a lot of crossover from each product. I will say though I'm happy Carenado has produced these aircraft because I'm a big fan of regional turboprop aircraft(my national airline had all of the 4 aircraft in service at one point). Even if they're arcade quality.

    You shouldn’t be seeing that. Back in FS9 days the Earth was flat but since FSX it’s definitely a globe. I’ve only flown over the North Pole once - a flight in Concorde from Helsinki to Anchorage and got within a degree of it. What I saw was very different to your image. Not sure what to suggest really. You might get an answer if you post on the L-M forum.
  14. I need to correct myself here as the Lancaster was developed by Aeroplane Heaven and not by the in-house team. Nevertheless after a fairly brief test flight, it seems to be very nicely modelled with good flight dynamics and great Merlin sounds. The Duchess appears to be a superb addon aircraft in every aspect and the Vulcan likewise and, although I have only had one brief test flight in this cold war bomber, it does seem to fly very nicely with the same somewhat lumbering flight characteristics that this aircraft always seemed to exhibit when I have seen it flying at airshows in the past. As for the sound of the Vulcan, those Olympus turbojets are beautifully replicated and I would almost go so far as saying it was worth buying for that iconic sound alone! Some very good potential deals here particularly for general aviation fans who can pick up the Cessna 152, Piper Turbo Arrow III/IV, Archer or Warrior and Duchess for just under £13 (EUR16 / $19) each if they want all 4 or for slightly more if they only want 2 or 3 of these. All have been developed by the in-house team and I can vouch for the quality of the Cessna 152 and Arrow which I already own - I didn't buy the PA-28 Archer as I already have the A2A PA-28 but I am sure that this also would not disappoint. This really has to be the best sale of this season! Bill

    AEROSOFT AIRBUS A318/A319 PROFESSIONAL UPDATE

    Well I tried that, but attempting to run the updater on my system results in the following message from the updater screen under the A318/A319 Professional tab.... Only regular updates are available for installation Installed version: 1.2.3.1 Available version: 1.2.4.0 / RTM Update Description: *** A NEW INSTALLER IS AVAILABLE FOR THIS PRODUCT. *** *** PLEASE DOWNLOAD IT FROM YOUR SHOP ACCOUNT! ** I've downloaded the installer but haven't run it yet, i'm going to take a look at the Aerosoft forum first before proceeding.
  16. That information is mainly used for some features like slewing aircraft to a specific taxiway or runway by voice. Mostly Blind Visually Impaired pilots using it. Some of the data can be updated. Run "MakeRunways" on your FSX or P3D installation and send the generated files to support.
  17. Happy Friday All! Just a little video on a high quality freeware scenery for Phoenix International airport by MisterX6, that’s been out for a while. Also a thank you for subscribing, liking and commenting on my X-Plane content! Have a great weekend! GripperSim. : )

    North Pole Scenery Issues

    ..strange.. I don't think FSX exhibits this (P3D was based from FSX after all..). I'll have to check. If that is the case then why would P3D mess it up?
  21. Hi, I was running Pilot2ATC without problem until I moved my machine to another domain and migrated my user account accordingly. Since then, I get the following error when starting P2ATC: Unable to initialize Database. An exception has been raised that is likely due to a transient failure... The underlying provider failed on open. After this error, P2ATC starts, but no airports are shown. I already uninstalled and reinstalled P2ATC but no change. When I login with another account, I can start P2ATC with no error, but restricted as trial license. I suspect, that there is some old connection string / credentials stored somewhere which is no longer valid. But I don't know how to get rid of it. Can someone help? Thanks Ulrich

  23. FSWidgets is pleased to release a new X-Plane-exclusive product! XTaws for Windows is an advanced simulated TAWS (Terrain Awareness Warning System) and PFD (Primary Flight Display) avionics app, designed exclusively for X-Plane 11 or 10 (64 bit only). It displays a synthetic colour-coded 2D/3D image of approaching terrain with visual and aural warnings of imminent collision, as determined by continual FLTA (Forward Looking Terrain Avoidance). Unlike a traditional panel gauge, XTaws is a standalone app which runs as a separate process and can be used with any aircraft model. The terrain data is read directly from X-Plane, so no need for a separate local or online terrain database! It can also be run on one platform with the simulator on a different platform (e.g. X-Plane running on Mac, XTaws running on Windows, etc.), offloading the work and screen space to a spare desktop or laptop. Check out full details, screenshots and grab the free demo here: XTaws for Windows

    The post is very informative and we can see that how Samsung has done many changes and the odyssey bargain is also a change. outlook 0x8004010f
  27. Autopilot could be better Throttle detent noises are annoying Very sensitive to controls when taxiing Could do with a proper tutorial flight rather than a long checklist A better paint kit!
