    Is it worth buy FSLabs a320

    Do you necessarily have to fly the FSlabs with failures? Can you set the on or off of that in the settings? In other words, are there presets available so you can try different things? Lee

    Can't keep panel pixel size when selecting GTN 650

    What I mean is that the icons are too small, you have to double the pixel size settings in the panel cfg to get them to appear at normal size for the larger screens. I found a notice somewhere in PMDG suggesting that as a fix for the icons appearing too small. It works really well. Regarding the above, I just discovered that each plane has its own ini file, so you have to load each plane one at a time and select GNS 650. Once all craft are configured, you exit, adjust the panel cfg back to the preferred settings and now they all load fine, Here is an example of one of my adjustments, it's the pixel size line that makes it adjust for my screen, according to PMDG you double the pixel number, everything else stays the same. [Window01] file=dc6b/sbi.bmp size_mm=32,192 pixel_size=64,384//32,192 window_size= 0.017, 0.190 position=0 visible=1 ident=10 sizable=0 window_pos= 0.000, 0.060 gauge00=dc6b!pmdg_dc6b_m, 0,0, 32,192 Lee
  4. As I have a 4K monitor running at 3840X2160, I reset my pixel size by doubling the numbers in the panel so that my pop up screens are normal size and not tiny. However, when I select the GTN 650 in my configuration, it loads beautifully and works great, but because it makes a new panel cfg it puts my pixel size back to small. How do I keep the sizing and the GTN gauge permanent? Lee

    Recent Addons

    Abundant Airbuses about by FsLabs and Aerosoft and A2A has brought out a gem of a Bonanza and the return of the Mustangs. All excellent stuff. Much, much more around, others will chime in with other great suggestions. Tons of excellent sceneries too from Lisbon to Madrid to small Swedish airports by ORBX and Turbulent updating their works. It's hard not to keep reaching for that credit card...!!! Lee

    Zurich FSDreamteam vs. Aerosoft

    I have owned both in all versions, I would say definitely the Aerosoft in the newer version for P3D V4. You can use the configuration manager to adjust the scenery which can help with performance. Lee

    I think the painter is Jan Kees Blom. He moved all his paints to right here in the AVSIM library. Lee

    4K & AA Help

    Might be a bit of a strain for a 4770k CPU to drive a 1080ti and 4K and so on. However, keep tweaking your sliders to get it to work. Maybe set the two autogen sliders for vegetation and buildings to normal. This will free up your CPU processor a little more. A lot of folks think wideview distorts a bit. Lee

    4K & AA Help

    I use the same settings in P3D V4.3 and it works fine. I'd stay away from NVI. Let's see your WORLD settings. Lee

    Quality S. American airports?

    Not in South America, but on your way there...absolutely top notch! https://secure.simmarket.com/fsimstudios-tocumen-international-airport-mpto-panama-city-fsx-p3d.phtml Lee

    Top end hardware - poor results

    Just some thoughts to try. From my own experience I think that 4xSSAA is overkill when combined with the resolution and display monitor settings you have. Try 4xMSAA or 8xMSAA combined with Anisotropic 16x. Also cut Autogen back to dense or normal. Combined with scenery complexity at Extremely Dense again it is overkill. Also bring buildings back to dense or normal. I keep my mesh resolution at no more than 5 and texture resolution at either 60cm or 30cm. With the high end graphic settings you don't need to push it here. Everything still looks great and FPS improves a lot. Your settings: Display -FXAA = Off AA = 4xSSAA Texture Filtering = Anisotropic 8x Texture Resolution = Ultra-4096x4096 Display Resolution = 3840x2160 x32 Auto-fill Main View = tick VSync = OFF Target Frame rate = unlimted Mipmap VC Panels = TickWorld Level of detail radius = Ultra Tessellation Factor = High Mesh Resolution = 19m Texture Resolution = 1m Senery complexity = Extremely Dense Autogen draw distance = Medium Water Detail = Medium Autogen vegetation density = Very dense Autogen building density = Extremly Dense Lee

    The best B-17 available?

    Will wait patiently for V4 version...it will be worth it!
  13. May I suggest a complete removal of P3D and a complete new install. There's some inherent problem in your basic installation. I would start over clean. I recommend the Poppet installation threads here and at LMs website. It takes patience, but I think you will wind up with a better installation overall.

    Improvements in V4.3

    For me the full install worked best, because there are fixes in all areas. However, you can just do the client. Doing the whole thing just completely refreshes everything and gives you the chance to get more selective adding back outside stuff. I always feel it renews the sim.

    Improvements in V4.3

    There are a lot of subtle but welcome improvements. For instance, I am pleased that the ATC grey out bug is gone. The severe ditch in the middle of Cyprus is fixed. I notice subtle improvement differences in aircraft loading. There are many others, chime in everyone.
