  1. Past hour
  2. I manage pretty well on an overclocked 1070 in P3D 4.5, but yes, it is considerably more resource intense than 2D screen. I agree turning things off is nonsense -- just reduce it a little. I use medium settings for detail in the distance, I use 4xMSAA and normal autogen. I use the oculus traytool SS at 1.5. It looks and flies fantastic with PMDG airliners.

    VCALC Alert

    VCALC calculate T/D (top of descent) on the route and show remain time to t/d (hh:mm:ss). When reach T/D, there is a "message alert" on GTN screen. There was not (sound) audio alert. I asked is there option to enable sound (audio) alert (example as horn). Also one more question, Is possible to show t/d on map?
  4. Jim, Updated FSUPIC to latest, but I use Sky Force 3d and not Active Sky. It is not installed right now. I did find a file called DLL in the AppData under Roaming here is what it said: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="WINDOWS-1252"?> <SimBase.Document version="1,0" Type="Launch"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>FSUIPC 5</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Modules\FSUIPC5.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> The Modules folder in the L/M P3D only contains 4 FSUPIC items. One FSUPIC Document folder, one FSUPIC5 Install text document, one FSUPIC.DLL, and one FSUPIC5.key. After all this I ran the P3DV4 EXE and the same thing happened, no joy this morning. I have NO add on aircraft installed and NO add on scenery installed at all, only a fresh install if P3DV5 from yesterday, No shaders,. Only the Lorby scenery organizer installed. I caused no problems before this episode began. Thoughts?? Ted
  5. Indeed, an update is overdue. Unfortunately, the main author of the above mentioned guide has left AVSIM. But I think that I've read somewhere that a new version is under construction.
  6. I have wanted to have a 787 for the times when I am in the mood for a long haul flight, since I feel it is the most futuristic looking aircraft, yet nostalgic aircraft with a nod to the first jet, the Comet, because of its unique nose. It does not have a lot of gimmicks, like a virtual cabin, but it does come with wing views and as many liveries as one wishes to download from their site. It uses the trustworthy Flight1 wrapper, one can never go wrong with it, it is my favorite means of copy protection in our hobby today, because there are no key-codes to remember, just your email address and computer signature works, which is a very professional way for our hobby's developers to promote their products, that us what we used in big business, when I worked for Best Western and JDA Software, the retail giant, to protect our profitability and make it as inexpensive as possible for our clients to coexist with us. Anyway, that said, I am enjoying this product this morning on a SFO to Heathrow flight, and wanted to share some screenshots. John

    Is Photoreal scenery the way to go?

    Hi Bobby, Sorry for the late reply; for some reason I only just saw the notification of your post. I will try to help if I can. I will just explain what I do and how that works. I always put any large photoscenery (eg megascenery states, countries etc) right above the last default P3D entry. I suppose it should actually be below the P3D default airports and cities, so those sceneries showed above the photoreal if they happen to be in the same location. There is no problem keeping photoscenery and a landclass product like UTX or FTX OpenLC or Global active in the same scenery.cfg. The photoreal scenery will just override the landclass scenery as it is at a higher resolution than the landclass textures. The simplest way I can think to explain it is with a rundown of the order I place things in my scenery,cfg, which I think abides by the recommended way. The top of the list is the scenery with the highest priority, and the highest number when viewed in the scenery,cfg file. When viewing the text file (scenery.cfg) the highest number is actually at the bottom of the file. I would recommend using a program such as Scenery Config Editor for an easy way to add, remove and move scenery entries. I will add a special note regarding ORBX scenery if you have any. ORBX can and should be left in the order that the FTX Central application leaves it in. The sceneries are ordered automatically to work with each other. You can add entries above or below the ORBX entries, but the ORBX entries should be left in their set order. Here is how the ordering in the scenery.cfg generally works Airports (eg FSDT KJFK) <--Highest Priority 3D scenery (eg Drzewiecki Design New York City) Landclass addons (eg FTX OpenLC, UTX) High resolution photoscenery (eg Megascenery Ultra Res cities New York) Lower resolution photoscenery (eg Megascenery New York (State)) Addon Mesh (eg Freemesh X) Default FSX/P3D entries <--Lowest Priority I hope this helps a bit. Cheers,

    EDRM-Repaints on the ATR42

    Hi Coqui, matching the circles over a transition with both sides skewed beyond belief by Carenado's mapping is beyond my skillset. I considered the FedEx but I have not found a way to close the windows, purely texture based. Marius

    Please post the resolution

    It could be the OP has found it was down to his own mistake and is then unwilling to post the solution 🙄.

    Fast and easy to fly GA Plane

    How can the A2A C172 be "too realistic"? It is still a sim. Start up P3D, select the plane, switch to cold & dark mode and you get the Cessna into the air in about 5min. Or, if even those 5min are to long, use the config window to have the plane ready for taxi when you jump in, then you have her in the air within 30 seconds. You do not need to do all walkaround stuff, in the worst case something breaks while flying and challenges you a Little bit. Or you simply go to the hangar just before each flight and fix all stuff that is weared.
  11. I have all of the above installed. xVision appears to need FlywithLua to work. I don't have it, so I don't think xVision is running Ultra Weather XP says in the user guide, P3: "Here are the plug-ins that need to be disabled the most before using UWXP: • FlyWithLua (any scripts of any of following: Sky, Sun, Water, Visibility, Fog, Atmosphere, Clouds, Shadows, Lights, Colors, Moon and Terrain). all of the above installed." UWXP appears ok to use ASXP. So, is the choice UWXP + ASXP or xVision + ASXP, ? but not UWXP + xVision because of the Flywithlua issue? It gets a bit confusing. If you have to make a choice between UWXP & xVision, does anyone have an opinion which is better? Can you disable a Plug in without having to uninstall it?? Thanks T45

    Photoscenery for Mexico

    I would do some searching under Mexico's government websites. It would not be listed as photoreal but something like aerial imagery.

    Fast and easy to fly GA Plane

    If you want something that flies a bit like a real aircraft, then 30 minutes+ is not a great deal of time to learn a bit about it before taking to the skies.

    Unable to launch PSXseeconTraffic

    Does it shut down, or is it out of sight? Have you checked the task manager? Try to delete c:\Users\<you>\AppData\Roaming\PSXseeconTraffic\parameters.xml and start PSXseeconTraffic.exe again.

  16. The issue I had before was gone with the latest update to the GTN. And that was the GPS/NAV switching back and forth VLOC to GPS...VLOC to GPS. Not sure if this is even a GTN issue. I launched the sim hopped into the F33 Bonanza REP. This time though I decided to do a FSE flight. As soon as I started the FSE flight t he GPS/NAV switch started hopping between the VLOC/GPS modes. Any thoughts? Latest software updates installed for everything. Thank you!

    I will give it a try. Thank's for bringing this to my attention. I guess I missed it somehow.

    P3D multicore usage anomoly

    Oh come on, humor us and go into that long winded explanation we're all ears to learn exactly why the ESP engine can't be modified to accommodate user-selected prioritization of CPU/GPU related demand. And not worth the development time because it only takes a few minutes to stop and manually adjust settings? That is the point now isn't it, to eliminate the need to disrupt the suspension of disbelief to do something manually so you can make it all the way to touchdown?

    Fast and easy to fly GA Plane

    I have had the Vertx DA62 since it was launched but have recently dug deeper into learning its systems and operation. It is a great GA plane. You can go deeper with the systems and procedures...or just fire it up and go. It can be as easy or as complex as you'd like..

    Unable to launch PSXseeconTraffic

    I'm using Windows 10. FSX:SE. Tried launching both, but mostly 32 bit. Using version 14.4. There is no log file. The application opens and closes. The mouse is showing a loading icon for 1 or 2 seconds before it shuts down.

    P3D4.5 FXAA or AA

    Try 4X or 8X MSAA with MFAA enabled (FXAA disabled). Works well for me in 4K (49" single screen).
