  1. AVSIM.ru, AVSIMRUS.com and AVSIM.su

    bots and trolls.
  2. there's a terrain 'map' mode on the wx radar, but according to Dave, not expected to be activated until the forthcoming service pack.
  3. trp buttons 'illuminate' when selected. does your panel/flood light work?
  4. just like the classic maddog, you can place the cursor on the alt dial--while press down on the middle mouse wheel--spin it to change alt by the 100s.
  5. Regional Jet Choices in P3DV4

    don't really get the hate posts regarding the crj. it's pretty solid, ap turns little too abrupt but follows the track and captures ils. hope next iteration will nail it.
  6. i'm not seeing the usual ground returns when the wx radar is set to operate in 'map' mode. 'wx' display mode works with active sky. went back to the 'classic maddog' on fs9 and i saw ground returns in the 'map' mode. any ideas?
  7. i had this problem after updating to the new version for p3dv42. to fix this, i went to the load manager>setup>reallight and trueglass and selected some different setting, did a 'save' once. then went back and set it to 'medium' and did a save&exit and restarted the sim. lights worked again.
  8. you'll save the simbrif .mdr file at <your documents>\Maddog X Files\Routes. then open the load mgr and load the flight to load fuel, etc.
  9. take a break from training and watch this video on the maddog.
  10. Unable to login to FSDreamTeam

    think it makes sense to re-title the post, just invites needless controversy?
  11. Flythemaddog is released.

    performance is excellent. vc 3d mdl and textures outstanding, flying in vr using the rift is sublime.
  12. AEROSOFT CRJ-700/900

    it does in fact hold course/ follow fmc for me. crs change should be smoother, hope the next sp will improve this.
  13. VRS Tacpack

    ok iceman. you win.
  14. VRS Tacpack

    it took pmdg 2 days to fix the 744 after p3dv42 was released (thanks pmdg!). they get beta builds from lm along the way. vrs doesn't get beta from lm. it will usually take them just several days to check things out and release the update with new p3d version. so i don't get the consternation about developers taking time to get things sorted out. btw, it's a great combat sim with the globe as its sandbox. when vrs releases the f/a-18f, it will be great.
  15. P3D 4.2 - Anything Incompatible?

    pmdg744 not worky for some.
  16. same upon loading, black screen followed by ctd. nothing in event viewer. able to load 744 by first loading some other plane.
  17. OK Prepar3D V4.2 is out!!!

    seeing better fps w/ single pass but some image quality issues: high tension transmission line towers around lowi blink on/off and artifacts of terminal in mid air at dz klga. perhaps gfx setting needs to be tweaked. but the default stereo works quite well.
  18. unfortunately, i don't have lc or vector installed and still get the pause around klax and general bad frames in the la area using socal.
  19. Does the FSlabs A320 worth it?

    re original question, it's worth it. never had a performance issue with p3dv4 version, runs like pmdg 744 except DL was bad. fixed that with a new gfx card. typical thread around here, passive-aggressive.
  20. PMDG / FSLABS and VR

    just started using the rift, both fsl320 and 744 perform fine. the resolution isn't 4k so i can dial back scenery a tick or two without really noticing it. with the oculus tray setting supersampling to 1.5 or so, image quality is quite good, can see the panel and ground features. and as mentioned above, it's not an all or nothing proposition--i'll setup flights on the 4k screen with trackir, then use the rift for taxi/takeoff, back to the 2d screen, jump back on the rift for sight seeing, then on appr/final/taxi later on. only issue is fsl will ctd jumping into p3dv4 with native vr so until this bug is fixed by lm (according to fsl), the work around is load some default plane and activate vr, then switch planes to the a320. but fs using vr is sublime. it's as one is sitting in the actual flight deck with stereo imaging and immersion. flying ga planes are fun again, strike fighters fly faster (accentuated sense of speed), and helicopters are amazing fun to fly as distance/height are now perceptible in 3d space. hw will continue to evolve (requiring more processing power), exciting times for flight simming. if one has the hw to run p3dv4 well right now, it's a great time to jump into vr.
  21. P3Dv4 Settings for flying fast fighter jets

    the new aerosoft f14 for p3dv4 down low and fast.
  22. Oculus Rift

    today got the powered displayport to hdmi2.0 dongle and plugged in the cv1: simply amazing. flying fighter jets fast and low, got sensation of motion during hard turns. the pmdg747 vc is stunning, just like sitting the real cockpit, the sense of height over the tarmac... resolution is not bad at all, perfect for hand flying. now on to optimizing the setup and enjoy the immersion.
