    Non realistic clouds in P3D V4.3

    The cloud, lighting, weather system modeling needs to be scrapped and redone. There is only so much coats of paint you can put on old wood before you just need to get rid of it and start over. It's where we spend 99% of our time.

    Jo Erlend Sund's EDDK preview - WOW!

    If you get P3D failing to start after updating to 1.0.1.0 see below: t's not EDDK itself. I just spent an hour this morning with the issue with version 1.0.1.0. Turns out the EDDK installer also installs another program without your knowledge which has to be some sort of data violation. Going to my ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 folder and looking in the exe.xml and guess what is there (look below). It's their updater I presume. Was installed last night when I installed EDDK. I set it from <Disabled>False</Disabled> to <Disabled>True</Disabled> and now P3D starts just fine. I absolutely DETEST that Aerosoft installed this on my computer without my knowledge. <SimBase.Document Type="AceXML" version="3,0" id="exe"> <Descr>AceXML Document</Descr> <Filename>exe.xml</Filename> <Launch.Addon> <Name>Flight Recorder</Name> <Disabled>True</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>C:\Users\Eric\Documents\Aerosoft\General\Flight Recorder\AS-FlightRecorder.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document>
  3. With instructions on how to do it for those that don't have spotlights currently please.
  4. Please publish quickly, yours is much better. Now I must have before my next flight on Friday.
  5. Glad I saw this, my slope was on 0. Put it at - 10, much better, not as sensitive and twitchy.

    747F Engine Failure

    I had engine's 1 and 4 roll back and shut off. Bug in the system? Yes, the human interface bug that shut off the cross feeds to them on the last flight and forgot to turn them back on.

    Navigraph Sign-in Issue

    I thought one of the main purposes of the Ops Center was that micro updates could be pushed so users would not have to wait for an SP? At least I recall RSR saying that a few years ago as to one of the main reasons for developing it. Is there a reason this cannot be pushed now via the OC?

    Active Sky

    And vgbaron is a beta tester for them so even if he did know the answer would still be no (due to NDA) 🤣 But seriously, Damian I believe said Q1 2019 at the earliest for update to ASP4.

    P3d replicates my life! Wonderful!

    I used to come home very early in the morning from work, like 3 to 4am local. I would look up and see an aircraft overhead and try and guess based on the last time I saw one at this time what airline it was. I would then look it up on FR24 to see if I was right, kinda like betting on myself and my aviation knowledge. I usually got it correct. And by the way, guessing UPS at that hour of the day would increase my chances. 😂

    How much RAM do you have for P3D v4

    64gb of DDR4 2666Mhz. Bring it.

    B748 VNAV descent

    This is why on long 8+ hour flights with ASP4 I'll go request an updated wind data download for the descent forecasted winds in the VNAV DES page. I typically see the T/D point adjust on the ND.
  12. Thanks guys, much appreciated. Willy, does Tomatoshade have a easy to use user interface and does the dev have a website or forum for support?
  13. I'd say he and PTA are done. When P3D v4.4 drops I wouldn't expect PTA (based on his blog post which says he is going to disappear) to be updated. Is there anything else out there that does the same thing either pay ware or free ware? Matt bought the rights to PTA from that Russian guy and now it looks like he is leaving the industry. Sounds like that clown Nico had a part in all this happening.
