  2. Hi guys, been playing around with pta and quite like the thopat profile, the only bit I'm not sure about is the haze. It seems about ott, although as I don't fly in RL, I've no idea if it's realistic or not. Are there any rl pilots in here who can have a look and let me know their thoughts.

  3. Ok cheers for the advice Kiek. Looking at UT Live at the mo, at it appears to be updated and of course your live product. Can't fly until Thurs, but lucking forward to getting this all setup. Out of interest, if I use a ATC package like ProATC/X would that pick up the live traffic from this program, so I could hear them in sim. Granted i apprecaite it wouldn't be the real audio, but would it would be nice to have some sort of ATC with the aircraft flying about. Cowboy10uk
  4. Wow this sounds amazing. I'm just getting my sim setup P3Dv4 after a long time away from simming, and can't believe you can now get live traffic within the sim. Stunning. im assuming that as well as the live traffic program, I would have to purchase one of the AI traffic programs that are floating about. As I don't have any yet, is there anyone that works best with this program. Might as well get the best program to work alongside it, while I'm in the position to setup up Fresh. Currently apart from Orbx EU and global scenery and a couple of A2A aircraft and the PMDG 777, everything else is stock. Cowboy10uk
  5. Hi guys, I'm thinking of doing a round the world flight in my A2A Comanche. I'm just wondering what flight planning software you guys use when doing GA flights? I already have PFPX which I use for my 777, but that seems to be directed for heavy metal flying, rather than GA Vor to Vor flights. Any advice would be greatfully received. Cowboy10uk
  6. Cheers Bryan, that's much appreciated. Obviously it goes without saying that if I decide to use some other heavy metal I'll grab it asap. Looking forward to the P3dv4 FS2crew coming out, can't wait. Cowboy10uk
  7. Thanks guys, all sorted now I have 777 for V4 installed. Just pulled the manuals from the install. Now to get reading and try try and teach myself this stunning aircraft once again. It's been rather a long time. cowboy10uk
  8. Hi Bryan, sorry for a newb question. As I only fly the PMDG 777 as my airliner which already comes with a locked version of RAAS and A2A GA aircraft which aren't normally equipped with RAAS. Can you tell me, if this version comes with anything no one the locked PMDG 777 version? Hate to purchase something if I already have it, be it locked to a specific aircraft. If all I fly is the PMDG 777, do I need this separate program? many thanks Cowboy10uk
  9. Hi guys, sorry for the newb question, but after being away from the civilian flight scene for a while I'm a tad behind the bell curve. Ive just purchased P3D V4 along with AS16 and ASCA to get myself the best looking sim experience i can manage on my PC, I was also looking at ENVTEX after a number of recommendations as I understand that provides better ground visuals than ASCA. Now can someone tell me where does PTA fit into the equation, is it another textures package like ENVTEX and ASCA as I see the main thing about it is providing great visual experience? Or is it something that I run alongside the other programs, sorry for what is probably a obvious answer to many, but I'm confused all to hell. I basically just want the most realistic 4K visual experience I can get from my pc, even if it does only run at 20 - 25 FPS. Is there any benefit of me getting this, or will the programs already on the pc be enough? Cowboy10uk
  10. yep figured that may be the issue. It's no issue though. Rather fortunate to have unlimited downloads on a fast internet. Just hope you guys don't melt the servers first. ;) Cowboy10uk
  11. Hi guys, I've been away from the scene now for a good 3 years, due to my little girl joining us in the world, so she's taken up my spare time. However with the release of P3Dv4, I've decided to try and get back into civilian simulation on the odd spare day I now get when she's in Nursery. I was wondering what recommendations can you guys suggest so I can get the most realistic look and feel to my sim with regards Traffic and ATC. Aircraft wise, I only use A2A aircraft, primarily the C172, Comanche and Cherokee for my GA flying and PMDG 777 for my heavy metal. I tend to fly primarily around Europe mainly in the UK, utilising the fantastic Orbx scenery that is avalible for that area, as well as doing the odd Atlantic flight to the states if I have a lot of time 12hrs+ free, which sadly these days is very very few and far between. I have AS16 and asca for realtime weather and visuals, so I'm thinking that apart from traffic and ATC I'm pretty much sorted for the realistic feel of my sim. Im looking for a program that is based as closely as possible on real world schedules and carriers, as well as providing believable GA Traffic and of course is compatable with any ATC program that is recommended and my other addons. ATC wise, I'm looking for something that's offline, due to the fact, with a toddler I can't garentee I will be able to complete the whole flight and not get disturbed and have to leave the PC, which I appreciate is frowned apon in the online ATC world, and preferably a program that will allow me to make realistic voice radio calls. Used to use VoxAtc many many moons ago, but no idea if this has been surpassed or bettered yet. Of course compatibility or upcoming compatibility with P3Dv4 is required. Has there been any significant improvements in these areas in the years I've been away? So please guys and girls, any recommendations would be greatfully received.
  12. Just spent 3 days getting my switch panel, radio panel and autopilot to work. In the end, I needed to grab Spad.neXt and the new fsuipc to get everything to finally work. Couldnt get any output to the saitek screens until i installed FSUIPC. Now it appears to sync nicely to the displays in the sim, and all buttons work. Im only using the A2A C172 to test at the moment. However the main point is they do work, with a bit of messing about. Cowboy10uk
  13. Yep seen that, sadly it's only paperwork relating to the tutorials and not the operating manual for the aircraft. ☹️ Never mind, guess I'll be using the old YouTube method to brush up my memories instead. Only a few more weeks to wait until I'm able to reinstall anyway. Cowboy10uk
  14. Hi guys, I have the 777 downloaded and waiting to be installed to P3D V4, but of course she won't be compatible for a few days or weeks yet. Can anyone tell me is there anyway I can access the 777 manuals from the download prior to installation. I'm aware they should be in the operations centre, but I'm assuming that I can't install that until the 777 is compatible with V4. im trying to get the manuals on PDF to put on my IPad, so I can start some homework and try and teach myself how to use this bugger again. Its been rather a long time since I stopped flying because of the birth of my daughter. Last time I was using 2.5. Thought I had it already installed since the last time, but I've upgraded my IPad since then and it appears I forgot to transfer the darn manuals. Cowboy10uk
  15. Hi all, just noticed Currys / Pc world are doing a sale on saitek pro flight panels. The Instrument panel, Radio and Multi panel are all £89.99 which is a saving of upto £50. I've just picked up the radio panel myself. Just thought u might like to know. Cowboy10uk
