  1. All I will say is that there is mountains of test data in two separate, massive threads right here on avsim that are conclusive in terms of blurries as a result of unlimited frames set in p3d 4.3.

    Agreed. I don’t have any real time in 182’s but lots in 172’s and the a2a 182 is so touchy I cannot believe the real aircraft flies like that. Even with the control sensitivity slider they added it’s still crazy. I was a bit dissapointed to be quite honest.
  3. 4.3 does not run well with unlimited fps set. There are several threads about it in here. The texture issue is a known symptom of that.
  4. Hi Adam, See my response above regarding the lighting. One more question - Which textures do you use for sky and water? I have REX TD and Soft Clouds. Im happy with my clouds but wondered what you were using for Water and sky textures. Thx
  5. The opus camera system does this already and has done for many years. No sounds though.

    Best WX for P3Dv4?

    Glad you made a choice, but my understanding is that the ASCA textures were not that well received here at least in comparison to the competition. You don’t need ASCA for AS to function correctly.
  7. Man, my turn to be unlucky. I purchased the Turbo Otter a couple of weeks ago.
  8. Hi Adam, The instruments are fine. Its the two warning lights to the left of the flap indicator (fuel and oil warning). Without the preset they glow the correct colours of yellow and red respectively. With the preset on they glow white. Its the same with the turbo otter and you also get the blue 'beta range' light glowing white instead of blue. I will try and upload a screen shot later as well. I just wondered if there was a setting in PTA which would tone the effect down a bit. I cant see to discover what parameter would be responsible for it.
  9. Looks amazing. Personally I would have preferred an F33 or A36 but that’s just me being picky.

    I can’t speak for sky art as I have not used it. Yes, I use REX texture direct currently. I’m not sure how much of a difference using the new REX SKYFORCE 3D would be as there seems to be differing opinions on this. as for free textures, these are great and have been updated for p3d. [hde] unless you want a massive set of choices, the supplied textures in this freeware set are very good. In terms of a weather engine though, active sky and opus win hands down. Textures are just the icing on the cake.

    Sorry, I should stress that opus does not come with textures. The textures you see here are all from REX texture direct. However, I wouldnt get too hung up on textures as there are some really good free ones here in the avsim library. If you need a camera addon, the fact that opus comes with a really good one is a bonus and means you don’t need another program running. Personally, I think opus and activesky are easily above any other choices in terms of weather generating so its one of those two for me depending on your other needs.

    I have used Opus FSI for years now and wouldn't change it for anything, especially as it comes with its own excellent camera system tied into the weather effects.
  13. You are lucky? There are many, many accounts of it on the internet, especially in DCS and other combat sim forums. There are even instruction videos on YouTube to do the job of disassembly and re greasing.
  14. Warthog stick and throttle are most certainly available as separate SKU's. I only have the throttle due to the issues with the sticky gimbal on the stick which require disassembly and re-greasing on a semi regular basis. The gimbal is just a plastic ball which is pretty poor given the construction of the rest of the stick. At the price you pay for the stick, you would be better off paying a little more and getting something more reliable from Virpil or VKB. VKB Gladiator MKII will probably be enough for civil sims. If you like combat as well I would go for the Gunfighter. If you want cheaper than all of those, consider the CH Fighterstick USB. I have had two over the course of many years and they still work great when needed.

    LOWI P3D V4

    It will still work. Just won’t blend as well with surroundings
