  1. Chock, Thanks for the history lesson. Well aware of all you mentioned. I should have been more clear. Stated why don't folks like the Electra in flightsim....Question was answered to my excitement by coastaldriver. Just got to get KBT on board. Best, David
  2. Thanks Bob, was figuring that was the case. It looks OK to me. I'll leave it alone Best, David
  3. Yes, I know we have this forum. I feel there are plenty here that could answer my question. But what I see a lot. If you post your question, in what you perceive may be the appropriate forum, it may not be viewed too much. Hence, your question doesn't get much views. Or it will get a ton of views, but no answer. I've noticed in several of the more obscure sections of the forums...particularly the dev stuff, it may go weeks to see an answer to a post if any. So, if a person has a question, possibly relating to development, were do you go. I posted on FSDeveloper since last Wed. Still no answer to my question. That is a developer site! I wanted to know something about editing an fx file. Were is the best place to get some possible input? I see on the P3D forums, in the Dev sections...questions asked back in May have no answers! I'll just put my question here: Maybe I'll get lucky. I have an fx file I'm trying to edit for a cockpit floodlight effect. The effect is just one lighting flood effect,over the whole panel In reality, the light source would diminish a little as you get farther away from the bulb. I have done some edits to the FSW Falcon 50, to be more realistic for my use. I wanted to try and enhance the floodlight effect. Is it even possible to do with the fx file, or does the dev have to do something on their end. If not possible, fine I'll stop working on it, and leave as it is now. Thanks for any insights, links etc.If it can be done, I'll keep trying. Just don't want to waste time on something futile Best, David
  4. After the release of the PMDG DC-6, it reminded me of how hard I tried to Lobby Mr. Randazzo for a PMDG Lockheed Electra. I did the same to Scott at A2A. With the Captain of the ship, I felt like the Electra would have been a perfect segue from the Connie. Same with PMDG, when I saw the detail, of the DC-6...I thought how cool would it be to have an Electra at that detail too. It was not too happen. About the only reason I could think of, is that most of the Avsim community had no interest. Yet, I recall when a while back, KPT released their Electra, folks were raving about it. Even now, Just Flight etal, released a Viscount, DC-6 . yet, they are any other dev, have stayed away from the Electra. Big part of history IMHO. I'm just curious. Why don't folks like the Electra? If a dev offered a study level Electra, you folks wouldn't be interested? Does everything now have to have a darn magenta line? Now before I get the standard...you want it...you design it nonsense. I have tried many times, to develop something. Just doesn't click for me. Even if I were lucky to accomplish that monumental task, I wouldn't have a clue about how to fix the bugs. Hence I hope that a dev will come along at offer a plane I love. FSW Marquise comes to mind for me. I love the MU-2. Based on Milviz statements re their "Solitaire" announced back in 2013, I'll have to be content with the FSW "Marquise" Hope that I will see it in FS2020 someday. Even in P3D, a Lockheed MArtin product...there is no Lockheed Electra! Anyway, I'm just curious of the dislike of this beautiful plane. Enough dislike it seems, as any dev feels like it is not worth their time. IE No good sales. Just curious. There are some pretty good vids on YT re flying the Electra. Check them out sometime, perhaps some folks may change their minds.. I can hope. Best, David
  5. Hello Marcus P.(mpo910). My biggest frustration with the P3D VR stuff, is the ability to select switches and orbuttons in VR. When trying toselect something on a panel or pedastal that has other switches or buttons around them, the mouse cursor would jump to a different button. Or I couldn't select it at all. Has this been improved somewhat, so we have more accuracy in the cockpits. DCS does this so great, I hope LM can too. If so, I may try to use PointCTRL in P3D for better immersion. Thank You David
  6. Hello, I am interested in purchasing an item that is only sold and shipped in Australia. It is not flightsim related. I found a cool camping chair I like. It's an Oztrail Modena Folding camping chair. I don't know anybody in Australia. Otherwise, i could probably have them order it and ship it to me. Does anyone know of any other way, I could accomplish this purchase. Seems like all the cool stuff is in Europe. Kind sucks in the US for quality made cool stuff. Any insight/help appreciated. Thank You Best, David
  7. tested P3d 5.1 l(latest) with a VR headset. If so, how did you set up your mouse, so that it would actually click a switch or button in VR? I can work with settings to try and get the visuals and framerate to work OK. But what frustrates the heck out me, I can't get that ugly mouse cursor to activate stuff in the cockpit about 90% of the time! I have seen others ask this question....it NEVER get's answered! What, do you VR users use to improve accuracy of the VR mouse selection. DCS doesn't seem to have this issue, what makes P3d so darn hard with this accuracy. Thanks for any assistance.I've pretty much reached my this is no longer fun point. Best, David
  8. OK, I have un/reinstalled the Falcon 50 twice now with the same results. When I turn on my shield/flood lighting, it is an ugly green color! It is a fluorescent light, it should have a whiteish blue color to it. The gentleman that did the FSL Spotlight profile nailed it! I know Mark is meticulous about detail, so I can't believe he made this green lighting effect. Unfortunately, none of his links work anymore. Before I go and try and use FSL spotlights, am I doing something wrong? Are the shield lights really green!?? Please tell me I'm doing something wrong. I have been in Falcon 50's, the shield lighting is very similar to the Boeing I fly. Whiteish Blue. Any insight appreciated. I have the Lear 35A. It's lighting looks fine for the flood light. Albeit, a bit bright at night. Thank You Best, David
  9. Hey folks, I just discovered this thread. The spotlights look great. very realistic to a fluorescent flood effect. However, all the links are expired. I did a search, could not find this anywhere. Did anyone by chance d/l this profile? Would it possible to upload to Avsim, or send me a copy. Thank You for your consideration and help. Best, David
  10. Thank You Gerald. This is/was more of the info I was seeking. I will d/l demo, when things settle down wx wise here in Dallas Best, David
  11. Sigh! Ok Thanks for trying Gerald. Still hasn't quite answered my question. I don't care about the Co Pilot , sine the mu2 is flown single pilot. I just want to try and correlate rc4 and mce together on flying the mu2 for a fairly realistic ATC experience David
  12. Hi Ray. Yes, already researched those too. Thank You. You were the main reason I dusted off my copy of RC4. I just fly VR a bit now, so need a method to interact w/out menus. Thanks
  13. Hi Thanks Hoang. This is not in reference to an error. I did search. Which led me to some posts here, in Radar Contact forum. There were some that mentioned what I want to do, worked great. However, they didn't give any info on how to set things up. Thank You for your input
  14. Title says it all. I'm looking for help, not view counts. I posted a couple of threads to get some guidance. One went a week with no response, The other in Radar Contact forum headed same direction. Before anyone mentions that maybe folks don't know the answer, the point of posting my question was that other's had cryptically responded they were doing what I was inquiring about. Hence I figured I could get a response fairly quickly. Due to previous outcomes to my questions, I am/was looking for an alternative if needed. Or do I just simply need to start all my queries with, "Issue with"......they seem to at least gain some response. Thanks
  15. Hello, making some progress on my quest. After reading numerous threads on RC4 installations, I got her installed OK for P3D 5.1 I will try the MCE demo, before purchasing. It looks like it will do what I need it to do. That is, interact with RC4 via voice in VR. I don't want any screens, can't see them in VR anyway. Hence can't select button 1,2 etc, or pages. Can I have full RC4 interaction with MCE in VR. Some posted here says it works great, but unfortunately not too much setup info. Hoping someone can clarify, and possibly go through the "flow" they use when flying with MCE,RC4 andVR in P3D 5.1 I'm a realworld pilot, so very familiar with ATC procedures. Thank You David EDIT: One other question. I know the Lear 35 by FSW is listed on the MCE aircraft list. If the plane is not on the list, can you still interact with it as mentioned above. I don't need copilot duties etc This is to fly the FSW MU2 "Marquise" Predominately single pilot.
