  1. P3D 4.1 CTD near Labrador

    This is a classic bug, which I thought went back to the early days of FSX (tbh, my immediate recollection was this went all they way back to FS9, but I'm probably wrong). Flights from Europe to the Midwest and west coast are always a gamble. I think Andrew's post on 11 March is the best piece of evidence so far (the map showing the crashes along the FIR boundary). I think the cause could be: the unusually complex and vast set of small lake and oceanic coastlines in this part of the world; a bug in how bvcf.bgl is read - or maybe a bug in the boundaries (how does P3D/FSX handle an undefined region with no FIR assigned - say an unintended sliver of airspace between two regions?); or an unanticipated conflict between bvcf.bgl and another bgl file. bvcf.bgl is the bgl with all of the FIRs and frequencies. I'm not convinced that couatl.exe - an idling external process - is responsible for the crash. A bit of confirmation bias there, I reckon. Bryn.
  2. FSPS : FFTF Dynamic P3Dv4 released

    initialism overload.
  3. FSPS : FFTF Dynamic P3Dv4 released

    that'll be version 2.
  4. Continental Iran Air Insel Air TWA Please :)
  5. From "Sully: My search for what really matters": "It was an incredibly clear and gorgeous night, the air was smooth, and I could see the airport from sixty miles out. I started my descent at just the right distance so that the engines would be near idle thrust almost all the way in, until just prior to landing. If I started down at the right place, I could avoid having to use the speed brakes, which cause a rumbling in the cabin when extended. To get it right, I'd need to perfectly manage the energy of the jet". That's what I enjoy - when I can almost perfectly manage it. Was close to it coming into Vienna on VATSIM two nights ago.
  6. P3D crashing over northern Canada

    Oh yeh... it's a hated bug since FSX. See this other thread.
  7. BDOAviation in P3Dv4

    One update - in low visibility during the day, the lights flicker on and off, like they do in a lot of pre P3Dv3 sceneries. The runways are also still designated as 05/23.
  8. BDOAviation in P3Dv4

    I flew into BDO's EBLG in P3Dv4.1 last night and it worked fine. It's a nice scenery. Bryn.
  9. I tried flying an approach to Istanbul, and I was basically in the same spot as another plane. That plane would be deleted, but respawn about 30 seconds later, and deleted again. It might be good to have a way to keep it deleted, so you can basically take another plane's position in the approach for busy airports.
  10. Hi, This is a great add-on, but I'm wondering what strategies people use to fly with real world traffic? How do you fit yourself into the approach or departure? I've been using it with vatsim, and the new floor option is good for that, but if there's a way people use psxseecon from start to finish, I'd been keen to try it out. Bryn.
  11. I see this a bit. If there is a note in the chart, then it shouldn't be a surprise (especially as it would be briefed?) and adds to the realism. But sometimes it's not expected. In this case it's probably a small issue in the AFD file, where the glideslope location is not the same distance from the threshold as the PAPI. The aero.sors data might be exacerbating this problem if it's using an arbitrary location for all glideslopes, but I don't know what that service does. Usually after each flight, I have a 'simulator write-up' of little things I need to fix, and I include this if I do an approach where I see 4 reds or 4 whites, but centered GS (and there's no note in the chart). I then go and edit the AFD so it doesn't happen again (either using ADE or AFX). It only takes a minute, and then the airport is good for the next time I pass through. Bryn.
  12. Just to add that I have this problem. Windows 7, 64 bit, and I have installed the redist. I run PSXseeconTraffic.exe, and nothing happens. Realtraffic works ok, and Nico's other programs open just fine.
  13. This looks really good! I have one general question: If you're approaching or departing EGLL, or KJFK or any busy airport at peak time, what's the best way to fly with this traffic? Hold and wait for a spot? Only worry about traffic in front of you, and not behind you (so you might have another plane 200m behind you on approach?). Any thoughts on the best set of compromises? Bryn.
  14. Thanks PMDG! The lights on the 747 are outstanding, and work in 2D mode. Could you include these in the next 777 update? Cheers, Bryn.
