    Congrats Again to SpaceX for a successful launch and orbit

    Thanks for the information, that is good to know. Anything to reduce costs to get into space is important. John

    You likely won't get any higher quality by increasing texture size. You'll just get impact on performance. You can go down with texture size and not lose quality but not up.

  5. A Falcon 9 is about $62m per launch and the Falcon Heavy is $90m, while the Delta IV starts at $350m (and probably more like $400-600m) and the space shuttle was about $450m. Nobody can match them on cost right now. SpaceX's plan to keep reducing costs is making something entirely reusable, booster and all, as well as gaining experience with landing rockets vertically. This part becomes very useful when landing on the Moon or Mars, which is Mr. Musk's long term goal. https://arstechnica.com/science/2018/02/three-years-of-sls-development-could-buy-86-falcon-heavy-launches/ As far as launching astronauts go, SpaceX is on track to launch astronauts to the ISS as early as this summer. Blue Origin's first manned flights will be suborbital for now.

    Missing SIDs from navdata

    Ok, thank you. That make sense!

    Missing SIDs from navdata

    NEMBO6A starts at XENOL and not from the runway, you need to get there first via the initial climb eg XENOL7A

    Missing SIDs from navdata

    Thank you for replying. Yes, fms shows correct cycle, airac 1904. NEMBO is a transition for several SIDs, like XENOL7A, but in the charts there is also the SID NEMBO6A. Actually on fms the result of XENOL7A + NEMBO transition is the same of NEMBO6A SID (same waypoints and alt restricions). I am new to 737 PMDG CDU, maybe I didn't undersand something...

    Congrats Again to SpaceX for a successful launch and orbit

    Yes indeed, When I watched the video I saw how far out the third stage went into the Atlantic, vs the two other boosters that were able to descent to and land at Cape Canaveral. I am also interested in Blue Origin, but I suspect SpaceX will get a crew into Space before they will, although Blue Origin is a bit more secretive than SpaceX. I wish though there were a shuttle replacement, the Air Force has their secretive unmanned shuttle, but we need something that can take off and land from a runway to reduce costs, I feel. John

    AEROSOFT AIRBUS A318/A319 PROFESSIONAL UPDATE

    I have never had the fall out of the sky issue.. but today I uninstalled and reinstalled the latest A320/A319 update and when I started P3dv4.5 it was unbelievably slow. Every click of the mouse took 20 to 30 seconds to respond. I would press the start APU and 20 seconds late it would click on Turns out it had nothing to do with the airbus update. It was MS Windows 10 security update that kept failing to install, downloading, and trying to install again. (451 times)!! Once I had dealt with that, things returned to normal (Phew)!!
  12. Today

    Missing SIDs from navdata

    The departure is in two parts, load the appropriate initial climb first for example XENOL7A, then the SID transition.

    Missing SIDs from navdata

    The database on the identification page of the FMS shows the correct cycle?

    Missing SIDs from navdata

    Hello, I have the latest navigraph airacs (1904). Some SIDs on LIRF are present in navigraph charts but not in PMDG database. For example, NEMBO6A, GILIO7G, all the three TIBER... are missing from LIRQ.txt on PMDG/SIDSTARS directory. I try to delete and reload SIDSTART + NavData, but the result is the same. Igor

    FPS in V4.5 (waiting for a fix)

    Having worked in several software developement business I've garnered some pretty good hindsight in software release practises. And testing is always a pain, but sooner or later you'll reach a testing stage where you'll think the software is good enough (no show stoppers you're aware of) and release, because basically you cannot just keep on testing indefinitely. Of course as soon as you release many more people will be using the software in different circumstances and typically there are a whole new wave of problems to deal with that you never suspected even existed. So onwards for the next release fixing those new probs and building new features at the same time. I've seen release schedules, where identified issues and new features are added each week, can be hard to get a stable build though. I've also seen where managment states a release date and come hell or high water out the software goes and then the org deals with any issues post release. Still others don't do any testing at all other than what the developer may do themselves (hint, never a good idea to rely on a developer who is already under pressure, to subjectively test). I've even seen software with years of investment costs and time just abandoned because of a change of management direction, FSX would be a good example but there are many more within Enterprise level software development that you'll never hear of. So how do enterpise level orgs deal with the above types of issues? They run multiple builds e.g. Test/Dev/Prod and always have a rollback option. Not every one has the luxury to run multiple builds but for P3D it is the Client installer that provides rollback, install just the client, test under a variaty of conditions and if OK continue, otherwise rollback to the previous client. I updated the client and just the additonal third party items needed, tested and noted issues, read forums, found out what was going on and then rolled back to v4.4 client so I could still happily sim while awaiting LM to deliver a fix. Cheers

    Why no tech support from Carenado???

    Baught the at42 yesterday on their homepage and the installer did not work. Every time it said "serial not valid" Wrote to service desk. No answer till now. So .... spend money for nothing. Greetings Klaus
  20. Is that a fully working 747 ?

    New Release expected Today!

    GTN 750 form F1 as a pop up will work
  22. Hello, I tried a couple of flight plans: - different transition point: AKELU instead of diski - no transition point at all, so that voxatc can assign one. Regarding the trans alt, I used as mentioned in the ELLX charts 4500ft. Ok, I will give it a shot and contact voxatc support. And again, thank you! The fact that you observed the same behaviour at ELLX is an important information for me! Best regards Benams1
  23. Actually, the reason they do the sea recoveries is because they use too much propellant boosting the payload to get back to land, and the extra fuel and weight doesn't cost much. The part that was missing this time was updating the robot used to secure the rocket so it can handle the Falcon Heavy centre cores. https://www.elonx.net/octagrabber/

    Having a weird intermittent problem with takeoffs.

    What is your mesh resolution setting? I have noticed that this can happen if the resolution is set higher than 5 metres.

    P3D multicore usage anomoly

    I've heard the high usage of one core described as being the main controller core. And for myself killing core zero and then re-enstating it does nothing other than push the main core thread onto a different core where it still happily uses as much of the Core's CPU % as it needs. What I do is use Process Lassoo, being the nice handy tool it is you can push literally everything off core zero apart from P3D. That way there is no contention of core zero and P3D has it practically all to itself. Usually I go a bit further and push everything to Cores 4~7 so that P3D can use 0~3 for it's own use and run P3D with a priority of Above Normal. But then again I also overclock and like trying out little tweeks and such in an effort to gain smoothness without overloading the GPU/CPU. The biggest difference was to go to a monitor with a 30 Hz capability because then I could VSync and achive a very smooth 30 fps, that was before I found out about RTSS though and I might have stuck with my old 60 Hz monitor had I known about RTSS and its capablity to perform a 1/2 vsync rate (e.g. (60 Hz / 2) = 30 fps or (30 hz / 2) = 15 fps). In actuality although it's difficult to achive a high enough frame rate to vsync in P3D once a few addins have been installed but I do have games that are much harder on both GPU and CPU, e.g. Crysis 1, same deal great fps while stock, but the time immersion, Ai and HD packs are installed the max frame rate is ~24 fps, and SkyRim Special Edition, I have around 150 odd mods installed all of which chew on the CPU/GPU, however both of these are still highly playable and feel much smoother than P3D does anyway probably because P3D has a hard time maintaining a steady framerate. Just waiting on those Ryzen 3 3850X with 32 threads @ 5.1 GHz to come out then I'll begin planning a new build, hopefully NVidia prices will have come down by then as well. Cheers
