    P3D Flight Planning

    Ok, I understand now. Flightradar24 let’s you track flights by tail number. Find a B752, get its tail number, then track its past and scheduled flights. I believe you can go a couple days into the future. Maybe this will help a little.

    P3D Flight Planning

    Hi Clement - As Rick said above, you absolutely can search for flights by aircraft type, and you don't have to be logged in to FlightAware. Just go to the site and hover your mouse over the "Live Flight Tracking" menu in the upper LH side of the site and a sub-menu appears. Then, select "Browse by Aircraft Type" and select the type you'd like to search for. When you have a registered account, they allow you to see many more flights than the free access. Registering is free, so nothing to be concerned with. I use the site all the time.

    KFLL scenery for v4.4

    Checking the two sources linked below, I don't see any. DCTRY (link) Google Maps for Prepar3Dv4 (link) Is there something you don't like about the FSDT version?

    I love this stuff

    Welcome, Andy. Great first post here. Yes, this hobby offers all the complexity one needs to give the sense of actually being there. After all, isn't that what simulation is all about? Even those who don't care for the complexity can still enjoy this hobby, but the PMDG products do require study and focus. Great stuff!

    Every panel states starts with baro on hPa

    Not sure what to say, George... it works just fine doing it that way here. Sounds like you might have a "permissions" issue when saving your modified panel state. Do you run Prepar3D in "Administrator" mode? Did you install P3D outside the default Program Files (x86) directory? I'm no authority here, but those thoughts come to mind. Hopefully PMDG will weigh-in with their thoughts.

    Bye Bye Miss America Pie

    We're an eclectic collection of folks here in this community with wide and diverse opinions on just about every topic... and this one is sure to bring out some emotional comments. I dropped Win7 about 6 months before Win10 RTM and never looked back. Not that I thought Win7 wasn't an excellent OS (it certainly was), but because I've been that way with all OS releases since Win98. I think Win10 is excellent as well, but certainly not perfect. There's never been a perfect OS, to my knowledge. I just love new software, and Win10 hasn't let me down in any significant way yet. We all have opinions...

    I believe you can set it in inches, then save that panel state. Then make that panel state your default startup state, and it should do that every time. Default startup state can be set under the CDU PMDG Setup menu.
  8. I did not get that dialogue popup when I clicked the picture the first time. It just immediately started downloading and opened right away in my desktop photo app. I'm not saying I don't already have a profile that does this automatically, I just don't recall ever setting something like that up. It also might be a "feature" of Firefox. I'm using Chrome. Yep 🙂 we sure can get tied up in knots with all this technology. But I must confess, part of me really does love the complexity!
  9. I must admit, Jim... that does look very nice. Also, when I click the photo, it downloads via my browser and opens in my desktop photo app. Not an issue at all for me, but I'm used to seeing photos open in another browser window. Just checking to see if that was the behavior you expected.

    Which gate is which?

    Scroll down to your closest point over a gate you're interested in, then simply place your cursor over the gate label and let it sit there over the label for a second and the info will pop up. Be sure the map is the foremost window first (by clicking anywhere on it). HTH

    PBR VC MadDogX First Look

    Hi Ed. So, now we have a developer contradicting Lockheed Martin regarding what components are required to see PBR. I have difficulty believing LM don't understand what's required for PBR in their product. Since I'm neither LM or the Maddog developer, I will step aside... but I'm leaning towards LM 🙂

    PBR VC MadDogX First Look

    Hi Jay. Just one minor clarification. According to LM (link) you only need to update the v4.4 Client to "see" PBR textures. All you get with updating v4.4 Content is the new F-16 with PBR textures. Any aircraft you add that have PBR textures will show up just fine for those who only updated the Client.

    Asian or Indian Airports.

    Hey Nathan. That's quite a comprehensive response from Benjamin... very thorough and helpful. Here are two additional sites showing payware airports around the world. DCTRY (link) Google Maps for Prepar3Dv4 (link)
