  1. Hi There, If memory serves, try: C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 I think you only have to point/browse to the P3d folder and PFPX does the rest, (puts the files into PMDG, WX etc) give it a whirl and let me know if it works OK. regards

    P3d v4.1

    Hi there, Thinking of buying 777, but just need to confirm if the T7 is compatible with P3D 4.1 (it states P3Dv3 and V4 on their web page). Many Thanks

    P3Dv4 - Shadow adjustment

    Thanks Gerard, I've just had a quick look at PTA on the forums and after reading a post regarding Ground shadows I'll probably leave them alone for now. many thanks
  6. Hello there, Does anybody know if its possible to change the density of the casting shadows within P3Dv4. Basically I'm trying to find the most realistic shadows for my system and would like to make them darker if possible. Many thanks for any advice or suggestions Cheers

    AI traffic in P3Dv4

    Hi James, Thanks for your suggestion. I tried to open the whole zip file which I downloaded: AIG_BritishAirways_Summer_2016.zip via AIFP3/files/open Flight Plan File (.txt or .zip) I receive the same "unhandled exception has occurred in your application ERROR MESSAGE. (STATING Invalid character in the given encoding. Line 2. position 1". Thanks for your advice though. John p.s. forgot to say I'm running W10 just in case that has any bearing on the problem, (but AIFP3 appears to open and work OK)

I receive the following OPTION with YES / NO / CANCEL choices Day-encoding scheme of "Flightplans_AIG_BritishAirways_Su16.txt" is not specified. Is day-encoding 0=Sunday, 1=Monday,...6=Saturday? (i.e., for FS9) YES NO CANCEL Whether I select YES or NO, ....... I receive a unhandled exception has occurred in your application ERROR MESSAGE. (STATING Invalid character in the given encoding.

    AI traffic in P3Dv4

    Hi Jim, Thanks for the reply, The post/link you highlighted is how I got started on this journey. I thought I'd buy the A380 and give it a go. Hi Ian, Have just joined the sites you recommended and I will download AIFP3 and see if I can follow your instructions. I'll report back my progress. You've both been a big help, thank you Kind Regards

    AI traffic in P3Dv4

    Hi there, Apologies if I've posted this in the wrong forum. Can anyone tell me how AI flight plans are used by P3D. (which folder do I place them in P3D) or If anybody can point me in the direction of a good tutorial for AI traffic. I'm struggling to find good information on how I can get AI traffic into my P3Dv4 world. Having purchased several FSP AI aircraft from Sim market. I've installed these along with several Liveries into P3Dv4, but I'm not quite sure how to get these aircraft working. I know I have to find a flight plan and install it, but I don't know what format it has to be in or which folder it goes in within P3Dv4. Any help or guidance will be very appreciated. (pity there's not a section here on the Avsim for AI traffic) As you can probably tell I'm a bit of a novice regarding AI traffic, have always used UT2 in the past with FSX. Thanks for your help

    FSPainter payware AI models

    Hi guys, With you saying you have ALL the FSP models, could you please confirm if ALL the FSPXAI aircraft are P3Dv4 compatible. Looking at Sim-Market I can only see the A380 for P3Dv4 and the B787 is listed for FS 2004. Many Thanks

  15. A big thanks guys for taking the time to respond. I think I'll go ahead and order the monitor I have in mind (ASUS Curved PG348Q). I was also thinking if Track IR would be effected in anyway, so thanks for clearing that up. regards John
