  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.
  16. yep, didn't think anyone would be able to help. It was worth a try. I'll try searching elsewhere. Mods feel free to delete this post...just taking up space right now. Thanks
  17. OK, did a search for bind mouse movement to keyboard key(s). There are 20 pages, but each time I clicked on a page; it looked as though I was doing another search. I'll just ask my question here to see if possible. lately I dusted off my B17 Mighty Eighth again. I got to thinking, I'll bet there might be some way(s) to use Voice attack. However, Wayward did not include too many keys for the movement in game. Instead they used a rt click round icon menu to enact actions and movement. Example: If I RT Click on the bombardier, the round icon menu pops up. In the middle is another icon that can enact movment,first aid,maintenance etc; with each left click. Then on the outer part of the icon menu, you would select the person or action needed. In this case, if I want the bombardier to move to the radioman station, I would rt click the Bombardier, then in the icon menu, with the move icon in middle; I would left click the radioman icon. This would then move the Bombardier to the radioroom section. I'm trying to see if there was someway I could get those mouse clicks, to a keyboard key binding. Then, I would now have a keyboard movement key, I could use in Voice attack. I could then use the Voice Command, "Bombardier, help radioman" or something similar. Does anyone have any ideas if this would be possible at all. I believe I could at least setup voice commands to jump from station to station, and use that action at that station. There are keys to go to stations, starting with tilde key for Bombardier. This is just an idea I had to add a little more immersion to the game. Any input appreciated. I was told on the Voice attack forum, it would be rather difficult to accomplish with that program. Best, David
  18. Bijan, I have purchased your 4 season set. I used your exe to install int community etc. However, I am using the Addons Linker tool. I don't want to clutter up my Community folder. I have a Seasons folder in the Addons linker. Can I just activate a season at a time in the linker. I tried fall, but I'm not seeing any change around the Dallas area. Is it even possible to use the Addon Linker with your Seasons. If so, could you walk me through how to set this up properly. Thank You David
  19. Hi Glenn, Thank You for your patience. Still not quite sure what you mean by OWN Folder. Are saying just have a texture folder for those specific repaints. If I copy the repaint file after unzipping, can't I jsut turn it ON in Linker. Then it will be usable to the other Bonanzas? I jsut had one purple scheme I wanted to use on Robert's Mod. In that case, wouldn't it be better to add that to Rob's Turbo Bonanza mod aircraft cfg? Copying the repaint folder into the linker should work I believe. Or am I even more dense and confused now. Thank You Best, David
  20. Re the turbo showing up instructions. Thank You. Is there a way I can accomplish the same thing using the AddOns Linker program. My plan/hope is to only have links in the Community folder. Thanks again for your valuable time. Best, David
  21. Hi Glenn, Thank You for the info. I'm dense..apologies. When you say aircraft cfg and unique ID number, are you talking about Robert's Bonanza mod aircraft config? I'll have to d/l Ryans, maybe that will make some sense to me. Still confused I think. I don't understand what you mean by this statement: think you could have its own folder with a separate aircraft.cfg that just creates a new model and texture name etc the way that Ryan Butterworth's Mooney liveries do I guess this is what you are referring too, by looking at Ryans layout. Do I look at the aircraft cfg and json, or just cfg. Good news, even though I'm dense, once the bulb goes off I get it. Being the pilot in me, I will then usually make a step by step checklist. Then I should be able to rock this thing. Thanks again for your help. Best, David
  22. Hi, OK here's is what I'm trying to accomplish. I have a repaint that I want to associate with Rob Youngs Turbo Bonanza V3 Mod. I also want to use the very well done FS2020 AddOns Linker. Based on what I have gleaned, I would add the repaint texture folder to Robs Bonanza texture folder? The take the repaint json file and copy the texture stuff into Robs json? Then I use that Layout genrator thingy to redo Rob's json. The repaint json won't matter now. I then edit Rob's aircraft config, adding the repaint entry to that? Am I on the right track here? Or are there some step I may be missing. Finally, Since I'm using Rob's Turbo Mod, I would just link that airplane? Or do I also have to link the new repaint as well This is what I am not too sure of right now. Oh yeah, how do I have the Turbo mod show up in FS2020 as that named mod? Thanks for any insight. Best, David
  23. Hi Bijan, Thank You for the response. If I don't use your software, then I guess I can't have automatic season changes? Thanks David
