    Winter Textures

    Terramaxx works well. Looks pretty good. Yes, if you fly long distances you will probably have a long pause while textures are loaded. There is a setting to limit or eliminate it. I fly GA and short routes so it work well for my kind of flying.

    X Plane Screen-Resolution

    Yes. Meant that with my GTX 1060, the DSR plus AA is too much. Might fiddle around some more with it.

    X Plane Screen-Resolution

    Do you mean DSR? Worked very well in FSX but I can t see any advantage in Xplane. Go ahead and give it a try. Set DSR to 2x, 3x, or 4x in Nvidia Control Panel. Set the new available resolutions in Xplane. Since the antialiasing is not too good in Xplane I hoped DSR would help, but not so much, unfortunately. YMMV.

    Carenado in X-Plane

    Having the same tail heavy problem. What was the fix? **Nevermind. Saw your answer.
  5. If I click on the individual sound files they play fine. They all seem to be there. Makes no sense. Very disappointing.
  6. You only need one weather injector—Xenviro, FSGRW, ASXP. You can swap out various cloud/sky textures like UWXP, Xvision, etc.
  7. Bought the Caravan on sale a few days ago. Installs fine. SASL loads. Cockpit sounds play. But No engine sounds at all. No errors in Log.txt, Downloaded a few times to rule out corrupted download. Again, everything installs fine but no engine sounds. Yes, Xplane sound sliders are all at 100%. Been working with Carenado on this but they said they can't duplicate it. They're willing to refund me but I really want to get the Caravan running. No problem with any other planes, payware or default. I am on Beta 7 so maybe that's the culprit.  Any other ideas?
  8. Had this problem. Found the culprit in I believe the exe.xml file. There was an erroneous entry. Might have been the dll.xml file.

    FS Academy On Instrument?

    I did buy this but have had very little time with it. Good documentation. Went through a tutorial or two--very well done and pretty thorough. Took one flight check and failed it--pretty picky but it is attempting to train you well. Again, I have had very little time with it--probably less than an hour so my opinion is very tentative but initially it seems to deliver what it promises. Hope this helps. Randall

    New monitor - resolution for FSX?

    I was hesitant to get the ultra wide but finally did and love it. Got an LG ultrawide 34 inch (wouldn't get anything smaller), 2560X1080. I use Ezdok and have no trouble with the somewhat limited height. Very immersive. With DSR it's amazing! Randall
  11. Glad to have helped. Not sure about flagging your post as answered. Randall
  12. Are you using a powered USB port? Might need one if your cyclic is drawing too much power and you are using a number of USB connections.
  13. Also, delete default flight and set up a new one. You'll get it worked out one way or another.

    TwinOtter Ext vs BN-2, FPS-wise

    Have both. Both are great fun to fly. The Twin Otter, however, is way above the Islander in graphics and system modeling. Both have great frame rates. I imagine the Twin Otter would be slightly harder on frames than the Islander. Hate for you to miss the Twin Otter. Do what you can to get it and fly it.
