  1. To add further support for this issue, as i have mentioned in another post, I too experience this phenomena, on multiple machines with ASV installed.Might have a bit of time coming up later this week to test out what causes the issue, so based on the above conditions if the Hifi guys could possibly give a few ideas as to what to test by PM or on the forum here, maybe it could be traced to a more specific source.Rgds,Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211VATSIM Student Controller (S3)Student Pilothttp://www.voz.ozflight.com.au/images/pmdgforumsignature.png
  2. Though the posts are getting smaller and smaller in horizontal width, i thought it most appropriate under here =D In reply to Jim, negative I haven't set up any manual thermal points. Also haven't had the chance to confirm whether it occured on every flight, but on another PC of mine that I installed ASV on, the same thermal issue occurred on the one and only test flight.Regards,Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211VATSIM Student Controller (S3)Student Pilothttp://www.voz.ozflight.com.au/images/pmdgforumsignature.png
  3. I also get the Thermal Issue, around aerodromes at least, maybe more but haven't really ventured further out since purchasing ASV. Until seeing this I thought it was just something like callibration of my yoke or the power of the extra 300s that i was flying around with. Made it very difficult -> impossible to land, certainly impossible at the right point.Regards,Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211VATSIM Student Controller (S3)Student Pilothttp://www.voz.ozflight.com.au/images/pmdgforumsignature.png
  4. That is honestly probably the best FS screenshot i have ever seen! Those clouds are stunning!Another AS upgrade sold :DRegards,Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211VATSIM Student Controller (S3)Student Pilothttp://www.voz.ozflight.com.au/images/pmdgforumsignature.png
  5. Stunning! :( Thanks Randy :)Love the flaps! I am fully aware that this is v early beta, and things may not be concrete/complete, but as a personal opinion only and not to say 'oh you've missed this bit', I think maybe the perspectives on the EFIS panel knobs might be a little dicey, maybe worth a second look at but it's of course up to PMDG. I can definitely see what was intended though, just something makes me have a second guess regarding it.edit: found the reason to be knobs perspective as if viewed from right ie FO, whereas gear lever, selector knobs and brightness controls shown as if viewed from the left. Maybe these were from the Captain's perspective though and are yet to be flipped.I'll certainly be dusting off the card for this one,Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211VATSIM Student Controller (S3)Student Pilothttp://www.voz.ozflight.com.au/images/pmdgforumsignature.png
  6. Never, as even w/ 2.4gHz 512MB RAM, what is now a middle range PC (though the nVidea GeForce MX440 is a bit of a downer :(), the frame rates aren't sufficient in VC.Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211Student Controller (S3)http://www.voz.ozflight.com.au/images/pmdgforumsignature.png

    Hi :)After having a lot of problems myself with this initially, I came to realise that it wasn't descent winds this and that (though i do enter those courtesy ActiveSky), but more a matter of speed.So what I now do is select the arrival, make sure everything's set up in the FMC and then insert speeds (in the LEGS page) that i wanted to be at, at certain fixes (like within the TMA 210 knots, prior to turning final 180kts). With these set and the arrival and approach entered down to the runway, the FMC will adequately be able to estimate when to descend, and will have factored in time for you to slow down during the descent.It's no good having just 250kts below A100 (default) in the FMC, as unless it's programmed in your arrival, it will assume you want that right down to the runway.Hope that helps,Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211Student Controller (S3)http://www.voz.ozflight.com.au/images/pmdgforumsignature.png
  8. You could get Merv Archer's excellent Australian SID/STARs from http://www.austscene.com/ - he's also got NZ and the Pacific, and is currently focusing on European ports of call.Regards,Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211Student Controller (S3)http://www.voz.ozflight.com.au/images/pmdgforumsignature.png
  9. Hi Jonathon!My take on a consistent, by-the-book departure:1. Advance throttles to 40% and let them stabilise2. TO/GA button3. Ensure thrust is set - call 'Power set'4. At 65kts view the F/D bars moving to upright5. V1 and the V1 call just prior to6. Rotate7. V2 call with pitch moving up to meet the F/D bars8. Positive rate of climb, gear up9. Passing 400ft Autopilot following a lateral mode MAY be engaged9. I believe it's at >1500ft, select the N1 thrust mode, keeping Climb thrust and varying pitch to keep ~ V2+20 (provided V2 set in the speed window during preflight)10. Above 3000ft (flap retraction altitude here), and at ~ V2 + 20 call for and set flaps 1 (from 5)11. Bug up, that is wind up / set the speed window to the speed that corresponds to the -UP bug on the Speed Tape12. Passing through the -1 bug, set flaps up13. Start switches OFF, Landing Gear UP & OFF, Flaps UP, NO LIGHTS, Autobrakes OFF14. Engage VNAV or similar pitch mode as desiredOf course I'm not a real 737 driver, and those who remember more or indeed know more, please do enlighten us.Regards,Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211STU3 Controllerhttp://www.voz.ozflight.com.au/images/pmdgforumsignature.png
  10. I'm certainly no realworld NG driver, but I can say with a fair amount of certainty without going through a lot of NG documentation that it is because the real 737NG behaves this way. Also, when being given vectors the FMC and the pilot of course have no idea of the duration of this vectoring, unless the controller adds '...you have XX miles to run'. This information is given to all aircraft who do not already have some other means of determining distance to run for descent purposes where I come from, except very rarely when the controller is perhaps too busy.Regards,Geoffrey Balean (YSCB)
  11. Love the shot too! Maybe some vortices in the clouds behind and that'd be even more stunning :D FS11 perhaps.Cheers,Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211Student 1 Controller (S1)http://www.vozvirtual.org/images/pmdgforumsignature.pngMSN - gbalean@hotmail.comCaution!

  12. Nicely put John :)I like the 800 the most, because it doesn't look too odd, and Virgin Blue and Qantas use them.Cheers,Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211ZAB & SSY Observer (OBS)http://www.vozvirtual.org/images/pmdgforumsignature.pngMSN - gbalean@hotmail.comCaution!

  13. If they cost much less than that 744 model, count me in. Maybe we could purchase one bundled with the 744 when it comes out :)I'm thinking a T-Shirt that isn't too out there though, because of course then people would either think (yeah well no need for them to know) that you're a geek or think you're one of the Apple computer lovers - notice how many of them seem to wear these crinkled 'Apple Convention' shirts that say 'Your momma called.

  14. Ha unless you have a much much more recent version that wasn't from a peer to peer network ;) P2P networks in my opinion should be pulled apart, put into a scrap heap and the whole lot of people using them sued. I mean today I hear from somebody who thinks that 'sharing' music through this isn't illegal as you share songs etc with another person mutually, yet it creates copies of the file. Besides which in this country it's illegal according to APRA, though I must say that paying to broadcast your own composition is a bit dodgy - much of the money for licencing aparently goes back to the artists, but that doesn't mean you would see it.Ahh gotta love to rant :D I'm getting tired!Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211ZAB & SSY Observer (OBS)http://www.vozvirtual.org/images/pmdgforumsignature.pngMSN - gbalean@hotmail.comCaution!

    V1

    Hi :)I believe that's from when you've pushed one of the buttons on the EFIS panel (forgot label) and it's supposed to display the radial from a certain fix. Clearly it's displaying V1 as opposed to the radial in this example. Personally I also seem to often have problems as it's availability tends to be rather sporadic, working one flight but not the next.Hmmm,Geoffrey Balean YSCBVirgin Blue Virtual - VOZ9211ZAB & SSY Observer (OBS)http://www.vozvirtual.org/images/pmdgforumsignature.pngMSN - gbalean@hotmail.comCaution!
