  1. All I had to do is set the clouds in FSX from simple to detailed. Not sure how it effects the issue but now I'm seeing returns properly on the ND. Cheers,
  2. Hi FernandoWhat's the problem with the FDE, especially with the climb performance? I haven't noticed any problems with it so far.Cheers,
  3. Have you turned on "advanced animations" in the options section of FSX? As I recall, this should be always ON to correctly show visuals on 747X.Cheers,
  4. Sorry if you expected a solution in an answer, I can't point you right into the problem.Maybe you should check Windows' decimal settings.Also, might be a silly approach but, do you have any kind of antivirus program, port blocking, scanning, anti-cookie God-knows-what programs running in the background?Have you tried to run FS with FS-autostart? It's a nice program that shuts down all unnecessary processes of your PC when you start FS. You can find it here in Avsim library.Not much else comes up..Cheers,
  5. Nerd #2 here.There's so much stuff to do while it aligns itself..weather forecasts, loadsheet review, fuel load planning, departure procedure review, ...
  6. Ever wondered how small is the place you want to spend your time the most?Tell me it's not an addiction... :)Happy for ya!Cheers,
  7. OK so let's just stay with the /200ER merge for a while.How is that done in your case?I'm reeeeaaaaaallly interested... :)Thanks in advance,Cheers,
  8. Well I recently went into buying a certain 3-letter company's 777, as I'm a big fan of the T7. It was such a bad idea.No, I mean the product is okay, but it's just not THERE. The panel is OK, CDU, and even WRX, sounds great. But still flies and looks like a freeware.The other day I went out to test the flight dinamics, since I usually fly long hauls with full A/P and programmed CDU's, only T/O and landing is my time. I took off and started an uncoordinated hard left turn, stepped on the rudder pedal and 3 seconds later I found myself inverted in a T7 at 800 ft AGL.You have not seen a person uninstalling a product as fast as I did.I wish there was at least 3 PMDG's, so we would have lots of addons that are spot-on. Oh well, we still got one.Ever thought about developing a sim environment, guys? ;)Cheers,
  9. Although it seems rather promising, let's just wait until we see how it performs on our machines really. It is a pity that PMDG will not (how on earth could they, of course) present an Airbus up to their standards for FS9. I am so committed to PMDG, that I would go for their FS9 version, no matter what, if they would do one.Well-well...Cheers,
  10. Kjetil,Not sure how it's done IRL. I usually go for 20 on a normal/heavy loaded aircraft and use 10 when it's really light. Also, whenever possible, I use derated thrust for takeoffs and climbs to keep the engines durable for a longer time (I suppose as they do it IRL).So even if the aircarft is not fully loaded, I tend to use Flaps20 as it gives me lower V1, VR, V2, and eventually helps compensating derated thrust.Cheers,
  11. Err,Excuse me... Can you repeat that, please?.. Err... it's quite loud up here in the L1 of this '47.. ;)Cheers,
  12. Hi all,Search on the forums did not result in a topic on this just yet. So what's the deal with AI in FSX? I have seen them taxi and some flying as well, but had little time to watch. They seemed "smarter" somehow, yet I still don't know whether there are any developments on separation, runway exit speed, head-on taxi instructions, and so on... You know al the things that bothered us in FS9Thanks for the replies in advance!Cheers,
  13. MS always tends to bring no-die-hard PC users closer to flightsimming with each new FS release. They always try to cover more and more of this flying stuff to make it sellable to other than hardcore flightsimmers.The point is that if they leave things unchanged, BUT establish the possibility to change things you don't like (make it a NAV light size, autogen, default planes vs. commercial addons, etc.) we should all be happy. Beginners WILL buy the product and eventually populate our ever growing virtual sky, and experienced users will welcome the possibility to tweak this, change that to own liking.Now what if MS chose to "lock" things down and wipe out the possibility for us to tweak FSX? We would be all griping about that. What do we do now, that things are in fact far away from "locked"? Gripe about wrong default but easily changeable things.What we need to focus on instead, is how we can get the max out of this new platform. Remember, families buy the same car as racers, but racers mine out the parts they don't need and replace the ones they need with better performing ones. They focus on buying a good platform to build on.FS-ing will always be like this, whether you like it or not.No offense intended.Cheers,
  14. I see a great improvement, however, in the area of flight modeling, weather simulating (ever noticed how those clouds sit on their base altitude with their bottoms straightened out?) and scenery.I would not go into commenting default planes that will be re-done by other developers anyway. Other aircrafts, however, such as the glider, the ski-equipped (I can't recall ist type) or the trike, is really enjoyable.Cheers,
