About Me

  • About Me
    I've been simming since the Timex Sinclair, probably more 30 years or so, and I've owned and used every version of Flight Simulator since the beginning. In P3D v4.5 HF3 and v5, I enjoy flying both GA aircraft and airliners.

    In my real life, I'm an administrator at the university where I've worked for over 20 years. My background is teaching English--so mind your p's and q's. As for hobbies, flight simming is my main one, but I am a huge ice hockey fan as well: I enjoy watching (go, Canucks!) and playing the game (I'm a goaltender).

  1. Me, too. I've tried just about all of the ATC add-ons, but I keep on coming back to RC4.
  2. The URL for STKP is https://simtoolkitpro.co.uk/
  3. We get flies, bees, wasps (lots this summer!), and other flying insects, so screens are a necessity for most people. No laughing here for USB desk fans: my daughter has one, as well as a handheld fan that she uses regularly. I agree: they are really useful and do help.
  4. Correct. Until recently (the last five years or so), it's rarely been hot enough for a long enough time to require air conditioning. Retrofitting my house for central air conditioning would be exorbitantly expensive, so we make do with fans and open doors and windows that have bug screens.
  5. As someone else mentioned, it does get pretty hot over the summer in the interior of BC. During the heat dome of 2021, the temperature in Lytton, BC reached 49.6°C/121.3°F. That said, you're correct: most houses don't have AC. According to Statistics Canada, as of 2021, only 36% of British Columbian households have any type of air conditioning. I live in Surrey, BC, part of Metropolitan Vancouver, and I don't have air conditioning in my house, which is 20 years old. I don't think any of my neighbours have air conditioning, either.
  6. I used double-sided tape, and it works perfectly to secure the clip to the bill of the cap.
  7. This is the Prepar3d Forum, so it's unlikely many MSFS users will see your post. I suggest you post in a MSFS-specific forum--or perhaps a mod could move it to one?
  8. I had similar problems: the 717 would CTD with a device hung error. The workaround can be found here: https://support.tfdidesign.com/support/solutions/articles/62000211537-dxgi-device-removed-or-dxgi-device-hung-errors-on-p3dv5 This worked for me. YMMV, of course.
  9. I bought the Steam version of X-Plane 12 a week ago and I've had no issues with the sim crashing at all.
  10. With the abandonment of developers concerning add-ons for P3D v6 (which I won't buy), I decided to try X-Plane 12. I'm a Canadian, too, and I bought XP12 through Steam because of the sale. I've only bought one add-on so far, X-Camera (quite similar to ChasePlane!), and it works fine in the Steam version of XP12. I've also downloaded some free scenery, and again, no issues. I'm planning on buying some aircraft eventually--for example, the FlyJSim Q4SP looks excellent--so I may have more to say, but all indications are that there is no real difference between XP12 and Steam XP12.
  11. Thank you SO much for continuing to support P3D
  12. I used OpusFSX (now OpusFSI) in FSX (IIRC) and ultimately moved on to EZCA and then ChasePlane in P3D. Does OpusFSI work in v5.4? I've checked the Opus website, but it simply mentions "v4+" as a requirement for OpusFSI v6
  13. I just noticed this May 25 post on the //42 Discord channel from OMGEDSON: About ChasePlane / Prepar3D v5.4 Compatibility - As with any sim update, this takes time and ensuring the LM release is stable before we go in and dedicate work hours to build an update. It's coming. Seems to be good news ... ?

    Final words

    I just read about your wife, Noel. My sincere condolences at her passing. May her memory be a blessing.
