  1. That's complicated by the fact that users of REX OD say that cures the problem compared to REX 4.
  2. Here is link to developer YouTube video where he walks through REX OD in P3D. Around 5:50 mark he talks about having to pay one time fee to access rights to use P3D with Overdrive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keCqgM7AV8w
  3. It is my understanding that you need to pay that small fee to make the FSX version of OD compatible with P3D.
  4. I would be interested in hearing from more people that have both Overdrive and REX 4. I am experiencing the problem with REX 4 but if Overdrive cures the issue I will certainly pay the $5 to activate OD in P3D. I was going to pay that anyway to get back to the sheer volume OD library, but I assumed REX 4 would be a better fit for for P3D. Has anyone brought this up on REX forums? Seems a bit rubbish that the REX program made specifically with P3D in mind would perform worse than the older Overdrive product.
  5. I believe when you are changing the "advanced setting" in P3D (or FSX), all you are doing is changing the actual weather conditions. The sim defaults to 2/8 at startup because default weather is few clouds which is considered 2/8 for any given cloud layer. If you saved a different weather theme for startup, that page would reflect whatever cloud coverage your saved weather was. When you use ASN, that page is overridden anyhow to make way for ASN's custom depiction. Setting to 7/8 is just forcing broken coverage to one step short of overcast (8/8). I don't like forcing the sim to 7/8 broken (an option in ASN) because then EVERY cloud layer reported as BKN defaults to almost full sky coverage. You lose out on broken layers that are more spread out which would be considered 5/8 or 6/8. However, to overcome the "popcorn" effect, I suppose it would be worth it. See for more information: http://meteorologytraining.tpub.com/14269/css/14269_39.htm
  6. I get the same issue with REX 4 clouds (and soft clouds) with ASN. One of the last niggles that bothers me in P3D because FSX did not seem to have the issue as bad.
  7. Anyone else running into this? I installed PMDG 777 and FSDT Zurich last night and now have this issue also. Most of my other addon scenery is not showing because of it. I am running as Admin. I have checked the actual file scenery.cfg file and it seems to be placed in the right spot. I'm guessing it's more likely associated with adding Zurich because I updated Couatl and Standalone addon manager but a search on FSDT forums turns up nothing for a solution. Error message when I go to Scenery Library in Prepar3d: Unable to open C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3d V2\Scenery.cfg for reading EDIT: I solved this by going to a backup scenery.cfg. I had to add back in some scenery, but all seems well now. I still think something with FSDT Zurich install set this off, but not sure how.
  8. Have you tried going to default Cessna 172, doing Ctrl E and then switching back to R66?
  9. That was a really well done video. Definitely the best preview I've seen yet and the first one that convinces me this will meet and probably exceed the standards set by your MD-11 product.
  10. Consensus is in! Over 900 views for this thread. Sounds profitable to me!
  11. I suggest signing up for the free trial of the MD-11 training to see what it's all about. Those who state that "reading the FCOM's", etc. has the same effect probably have never seen the MD-11 training. I've read almost all the MD-11 manuals front to back and still found great value added with the AOA stuff. It visualizes and re-enforces all the concepts you've read about and applies them to the specific operations of the MD-11, whether it be complex systems, emergency procedures or approaches.That is also why I think you find so many disappointed people in this thread. AOA had a good rep for quality material, no matter your experience level, and now they seem to be stuggling just to keep their heads above water with the NGX.On top of that, they seem to be dishonest with their approach because the AOA training section and forums of the NGX are locked until you buy the training. So despite the top line of the NGX product page saying "COMPLETE NGX TRAINING", you won't know it's not really true until you get paid access and find out otherwise.
  12. Thanks for the detailed response Web. They really should make their website more clear because they certainly make it appear as if all the stuff listed under 737 training is available right now. Misleading would be a polite way of putting it. It certainly is disappointing and I wonder if the sheer depth and scope of the subject matter made them think they had to "reinvent the wheel" instead of just focusing on quality, in depth training like the MD-11 had. I'm not sure how else a company that released a product as slick as the MD-11 training could then go and botch it up so bad for the NGX as if they had no experience whatsoever.
  13. Any update on how this has come along? It's very hard to decipher from looking at their site what exactly is completed and what is "to come". Are all the Groundwork course's complete? Have they released a single Flightwork yet? How about the Bonus Features, is everything listed available now? Simply, is it at the level of their MD-11 training yet? Sorry for the wall of questions, but like I said, based off previous reports and the vagueness of the website, I'm a little gun shy.
  14. I just bought the MD-11 and would also love to have the voice version even if it's implemented the same way as the 747.
