  1. I tried this great little freeware navmap program available in the Library. It is terrific and is feature rich including the one thing I always wanted was an airfield map with parking positions as read from the scenery database (like an EFB). Highly recommended!

    DTW beta tests

    This is the long in gestation SunSkyJet KDTW freeware...it's in Beta testing finally. Shez
  3. Gerard, I just installed your August preset and I get a brown horizon. https://ibb.co/fH2Q7p Any ideas? Shez
  4. I have a Thrustmaster joystick with twist function assigned to steering tiller which sits on a small table to the left of my chair. This is for ground steering. All buttons on top are for reset views so when panning the view (moving the head so to say) while taxiing I can quickly reset to forward view when back on centerline. This is separate from my Saitek Yoke which is mounted in front with rudder pedals for flying. For jets/Dash8 I use the tiller/joystick, for GA/props I use my pedals. All assigned via FSUIPC. My wish is one day some hardware manufacturer produces a true steering tiller... Shez
  5. This happens when some addons are not compatible with V4. The only solution I found was to go to the folder C:\Users\xxxxx\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons. Delete all scenery entries there unfortunately and rebuild.

    Garmin 750/650

    Yes it is easily installed in all aircraft via their utility. Just one caution the Garmin trainer nav data cannot be updated.

    KBUR & KLGB

    You are correct. BUR will not work well with P3D although never tried it. LGB does but I have to optimize it as it kills frames around south LA if used together with FSDTs KLAX. We are planning a brand new BUR by SunSkyJet. WIP. Shez

    VATSIM Achieves Membership Milestone

    This is exactly what I have been trying to overcome with this website. Try and get some predictability. www.atcbooking.com Shez

    Autorudder on MD80

    Maybe assign it to a button on your joystick?
  10. I also feel that the July preset on this set is very grey. Shez

    error graphics

    Exactly what I am seeing. https://ibb.co/janQgd Shez
  12. There are some real issues with PTA presets and 4.3 especially with REX SF. None of the presets are compatible and break cloud.fx each time. I am having to uninstall and reinstall all the time. Even your presets are not working well. Shez

    Create a flight plan

    There is a good program called Professional Flight Planner which is the final word in flight planning. Everything you need. However, here is what to do when you are not using PFP. For commercial airline flights: Simbrief is best. It produces a flight plan and a lot of sundry data for your aircraft for flight planning. There is now a small utility called Simbrief downloader which will down load the final plan into the appropriate folders for you to load directly into your aircraft FMS. Many formats are supported. For GA flights: Little NavMap is best and it will give you many options to proceed via low/high airways or VOR/VOR etc. You can then upload to the P3D folder for it to be available for your flight. For GA flights, as you might be aware, pilots usually do the flight plans manually and load them up by hand into their GPS unit. If you have the payware GTN units you can take the Little NavMap flight plan and manually input it into the GTN. Or vice versa, use the GTN units and manually set up a flight plan directly there. It's very realistic. Hope that helps. Shez
  14. Let me know if this is fixed with the P3D version of KRIC.

    Obituary: Eric Ernst

    Truly one of the people who laid the stepping stones for all the developers to take the sim to where it is now. A great man. Left us too early.
  16. I think it is individual developer and model related variability. With the JF C152 I was just unable to maintain any kind of lateral control so this really helped. Then I came across this linked thread and though it might be interesting for others. Try it out and experiment a bit. I never changed the turbulence scalar in ASP4 but now I have. Shez
  17. I was having a lot of handling issues with the excellent Just Flight C152 mainly due to ASN winds. So on their forums I came across this thread and it certainly sorted me out. http://forum.justflight.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=31751&KW=weather&title=hunter-instability-question Worth a try for others but it will generally affect aircraft too. Opinions? Shez
  18. Agree. I have gone even further down to 20 as per the forum thread and it has done wonders. Shez
  19. What I meant was to unlock the frames from inspector and not use it, and just go unlimited. That is the only way I got it to not dip FPS. If you need the inspector then you will see the dip. I am not sure why this happens... Shez
  20. The reason for me was locking frames from an external program like inspector. Maybe this is the problem you are experiencing. Shez
  21. SF Cloud size 2048/1024 ASP4 Cloud layers 3-5, min/max cloud dist 90/110 Shez
  22. I don't know what it is but the entire environment with SF and ASP4 is quite incredible. You do have to watch the density/cloud size etc. as it brings down FPS but it is "as real as it gets". Shez

    Feelthere E135/145 released for P3D v4

    I agree. If you want to fly an ERJ in P3DV4 then this is most likely it. Or wait two years for another one. Which might be incrementally a little better than this. Your choice. Let me remind everyone, this particular aircraft was a lot of fun in FSX and I would definitely recommend it just as a fun aircraft to fly. It has most systems that are on the real thing. Yes no weather radar but is that a killer for me...No. I have ASP4 etc. which can pretty much tell you what the weather is going to be like. Don't get fooled by the "simple port over from FSX" statement. Shez
  24. NVI framelimiter 29.5FPS P3D vsync ON P3D Triple buffering ON P3D framerate UNLIMITED Two more items which may not relate to your setup. * I have a high end GPU (GTX1080Ti) and CPU (i7 8700K) so I also set NVI SSGS 2X. It just seems to improve the clouds transparency and the whole scene is amazing. * I have a 4K 28" monitor so in P3D I only use MSAA 4X. I get beautiful anti-aliasing with no impact on FPS and the clouds are amazing. The only thing I have to watch is the CPU temp even with water cooling. I use a self generated Process Lasso profile which maximizes the cores for P3D and minimizes other processes so it does stress the cores...but hey that is what it was for right... That GPU , with the 4X MSAA you can throw everything at it and it sits at 40% with low temps. Shez
