    Hi Bill. Nothing new has been added I’m afraid. RC4 is locked in time. On a more positive note nothing has been removed.
  2. The worst experience with a 4K display

    I see you’ve now included it.
  3. The worst experience with a 4K display

    Joe, with respect your specs don’t include one extremely important piece of info. Screen resolution. That is probably as important as CPU speed and graphics card.
  4. Advice needed on several P3D tools/utilities

    @Bobsk8, yes, I found it frustrating to use at times. But PFPX is ideal for me as I often have to design custom routes for my Concorde flights to avoid flying supersonic over populated areas. Well worth the investment. Each to their own.

    Christopher, let’s assume you are 20 mins from landing in a 3 hour flight when your sim crashes. Without Autosave you wouldn’t be able to reload the flight and complete it. Only FSUIPC has that feature.

    That isn't vRoute. vRoute came out around 10 years ago. The utility discussed in that link didn't stay on my computer.

    vRoute possibly? I used it for quite a while but then discovered PFPX.
  8. Honeycomb Yoke and Throttle news

    Hi Al, I hope you’re right as it would be an easy decision for me to make. But as they are now nearing production I’m not confident we’ll see that option. I hope I’m wrong. I wish Honeycomb would update their website with the latest info including dimensions and extra photos as someone suggested. There’s been no news about the throttle quadrant which is disappointing given it’s due out in Q1.
  9. You’ve obviously not seen the Honeycomb thread on this page. It’s not been released yet. Have a read of the thread.
  10. Honeycomb Yoke and Throttle news

    Al, I would be disappointed if Hall effect sensors were offered as an upgrade on a brand new product. Given the price is still being quoted as $199 for each unit adding another $20 or so to the final price would be far preferable to me than sending back the unit in x months for the upgrade. The cost of shipping would probably exceed the cost of the hardware change. I’m quoting this from the Honeycomb website... “By using existing professional grade internal mechanical components, we ensure, not only that the products will last for a very long time, but also that the weight and feel of the products mimic that of a real aircraft.” The pots would have to be if the highest quality to backup that statement. But in reality I would expect Hall effect sensors as they are professional grade. A five year guarantee is commendable but the weakest link in this type of unit is the pots. Having to send it away for pot replacement after several years would be disappointing. Hall effect will see this 66 year-old out.

    Thanks. I suspected as much but it would help if that was made clear in topic titles and / or tags. We really need separate areas for P3D v3.x and v4. I know the mods have looked at it but maybe mandatory tags could be considered so we have discrete discussion areas on what are effective two different sims under one badge. Bit like FS9 and FSX.
  12. GTX 1080 TI = Blurries

    Am I right in assuming TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=10 is only available in P3D v4? Although this is the P3D forum this discussion appears to be about v4 but with nothing in the title and no tag info it’s not always obvious.

    Does the trim value vary by TOW? I haven't checked the full manual. You'd expect to see a table if it does.
  15. Xtreme prototypes GLJ25

    What’s the trim value when you’ve done that David?
