    182 RG Engine dies at altitude

    This is an FSX 'thing' I believe. FSX does not include parameters for fuel injected prop aircraft in the SDK, thus all fuel injected systems are 'simulated'. I have had to use the keystroke for carb heat in a few of my fuel injected models under certain conditions, as they are still modeled with a carburetor by default. No, I'm not an aircraft designer, but had this problem with another designers aircraft, and that is how it was explained to me. Perhaps Carenado will clarify.And yea, the Beaver is almost unflyable for me in the winter months, as the carb heat does seem to work well.Never had an issue in any of Carenado aircrfat that the carb heat would not fix, but have had times where I had to lose a couple thousand feet of altitude before it kicked in. There are times I wonder if this isn't a sign of icing more than carb heat. Unfortunately, we don't get any visual cues of icing happening in FSX. I believe there is only one third party aircraft that does model it visually.If you use a weather engine as Active Sky (as I do), there is a possibility that these conditions are more 'exaggerated' vs. the default FSX weather engine.

    Fsuipc And Fsx

    It is up to you, but I gladly pay for the registered version, and use it....especially the yoke/pedal calibration.Bottom line, for me, Peter has done so much for third party FS implementation over the years, I also feel he deserves some money for his efforts :(

    Norway Airport Question

    That should do it. If I were you, I would simply change the .bgl's you do not want to use to ENCNXX.bgl.BAKThat way they will always be there if you want to re-activate them by removing the '.BAK' at the end of the file.Great scenery package isn't it?
  5. After reading through that thread, I tried giving the 'panel.bmp' a solid black alpha, and save it as DXT3 texture, and I have the VC panel with operable gauges, but I cannot operate the radios, nor the heading 'bug'....but much better than what is was....I'm going to keep playing with this and see if I can't get everything operational again....not sure how successful I'll be.
  6. Only glitch? You got my hopes up, but all the gauges are inoperable in the VC.

    Simulate THIS!

    How would you like to be a passenger on that flight?Can just imagine....Captain: 'ooops, sorry bout that, we are going to circle and try that again'...:D

    Yep, a fun plane indeed.

    Shockwave

    You are correct about a key not being required if you purchase directly through Shockwave. I checked, and I received an email with a link to the download which was only suppose to be active for 72 hours. Whenever I purchase something like this (or anything I purchase actually) I always make triplicate back-ups of my keys and/or download .exe/zip file for safe keeping.

    Shockwave

    I just purchased (a few days ago) their P-51 Mustang (a great aircraft BTW) and received my key immediately.

    NORWAY : a great country to fly

    I did the same thing about 3-4 years ago, and Norway has become one my all time favorite places to fly. Get over to the coast (I usually start at Bergen Flesland and skip along the shore north to Alta, or similar), then find new airports along the way as I turn around and return.Hopefully you have Ultimate Terrain, and a good mesh, and in addition, there is an freeware airport collection called 'Norway Airports' that is one of the best freeware scenery sets you will find (Finland also has some great freeware scenery).Go to this site for that scenery:http://www.fsnordic.net/I'm flying Norway right now also....Have fun.

    Constant 1.47GB memory..

    I have 4GB in XP, (running with the 3GB boot.ini switch), and last time I checked I was using about 1.75-2.0GB of RAM, depending. As I am running 4GB in XP, my computer OS only recognizes 3.17GB instead of the full 4.
