  1. Hey, I just wanted to say thanks to PMDG for resolving this issue so quickly! I was able to successfully install my 747 today and I am thinking it is time to start budgeting for another PMDG product. That DC6 looks pretty good! Eric Norton
  2. It should be working now. I just got a note from them last night because I had an open ticket on the same issue. I was able to install mine successfully this morning. Eric Norton
  3. I have been playing around with FSArchitect now that it has been released as freeware. It looks to be quite a powerful program and I am not having the easiest time wrapping my head around it. I lost the object tree or whatever you want to call it. It's the highlighted portion in the screenshot that I am talking about. I can't figure out how to get it to show up again. The manual I downloaded doesn't have a list of key commands and I can't find anywhere in it where it talks about that window. Anybody know how I can bring it up again? http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/173580.jpg
  4. Yep, I think they would have been better off uploading them here or to another file library.
  5. Thanks Luis, I'll look into those. Something new to learn :D.
  6. Hi guys, I am new when it comes to working with scenery design. I am working on making a new version of the Chehalis River but I am having problems getting rid of the default river. I used the Freeflow tutorial by Scott Gridley to do this project. Here is a screenshot of what I am looking at. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v145/Rou...project_001.jpg
  7. I have got Vol. 1 also, which I bought mainly for the 737-200. I enjoy the 747's as well, but don't fly them as often since I have purchased the PMDG 747-400 as well. If you want to use an INS with the 737, I recommend the CIVA Delco Carousel INS which I use in it.
  8. Well, I am sure you could do it with out programming the FMC, but it still takes a lot of setup to get it to fly properly. It is not one where you can ctrl+E and go. You still have to make sure all the systems are functioning before you fly. If you have no hydraulics, your brakes won't work, flaps won't work... and so on. If you aren't going to fly it the way it was meant to be flown, it would be a waste of $54. Were I you, I would look at the Aerosim or Overland models. They are much more simple, but still look good.
  9. >With the NAV/RAD button in NAV, select heading on the Sperry>77 autopilot to allow the INS to drive the A/P heading. The>airplane will fly the heading commanded internally by the INS.> Note that the heading bug is not slaved by the INS in this>mode.>>Regards>>Bob Scott>ATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300>Santiago de ChileI am not convinced this will work. I attempted a flight this morning after inputting a flight plan into the INS but it wouldn't follow the plan. I went ahead and added the Nav Mode Selector that the CIVA documentation says needs to be installed in the panel. I haven't tried it out yet, but will later today and see if it works. The way I read the documentation for the INS is that the autopilot has to be in heading mode with the Nav Mode Selector for the CIVA INS set to INS1 or which ever unit you desire if you have a multiple unit set up.
  10. When you use a usb headset, your pc recognizes it as an additional sound card basicly. I don't have Radar Contact, but I know that with Squawkbox you can assign which sound device you prefer to use it with, be it your sound card, on board sound, or your usb headset.
  11. Hehe, I am classified as a DC-3! Guess that means I should be flying my MAAM-SIM DC-3 more often.
  12. Where did you find the demo version?
  13. I don't believe the Maule has aileron trim, in the sim or real world. It just requires good old fashioned hand flying :D.
  14. Does anyone know of any good tutorials for photoshop on creating metalic looking textures? I have found some, but they don't provide the results I am looking for. Basicly, I want to create something that looks like this, or close to it. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v145/Rou...es/File0015.jpg
