    Cargo vs Pax

    I’ve always used the method of adding a C at the end, the same way I add an X to the end for regional partners (ACAX, DALX etc).

    Cargo vs Pax

    Some are certainly better than others. There are a lot of cargo parking locations missing from FSDT KLAX unfortunately.

    Taxi2Gate sceneries v4 compatible?

    For the life of me I cannot get the MMMX installer to install the t2g2.dds and t2g2lm.dds files anywhere. I have tried; - Installing directly into the P3Dv4 directory - Creating a dummy FSX directory and installing there - Reinstalling FSX-SE and installing the scenery there. In all cases the installer does not place these two files in the /texture folder. Any other ideas? The scenery seems to work well otherwise but the black autogen buildings are of course annoying. Thanks

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    We all have different perspectives, but to me the aircraft does those things as I would expect it to.

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    I keep seeing references to PMDG in this thread. QW is not PMDG, they’ve acknowledged that very clearly (nor do they promote the 787 as being at that “level”). The 787 is roughly HALF the price of a PMDG aircraft, so expectations need to be in check. If a simmer cannot bear to fly an aircraft that doesn’t gets every single obscure nuance of the aircraft correct, then they should stick to PMDG and a few others and have fun being limited to those aircraft. Myself, I find the 787 perfectly flyable, and a plausible simulation of the aicraft. I’m happy with it, and I think it stacks up well with similarly placed/priced payware aircraft.

    QW 787 Airport maps?

    Have a look at the manual, it’s explained in there. You need to use Airport Design Editor.

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    I love the previous comment that the only aircraft that did everything the pilot expected every time was the 737-200...gotta love those first gen 737’s!

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    Finished up my initial flight CYUL-ZSPD and all went well, VNAV tracked as expected, no issues intercepting the ILS. First flight was quite good overall.

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    You have to edit the aircraft.cfg file and change the title of one of the aircraft, I just added the word “old” to the end of the old paint scheme version.

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    Last night I had time to set up a flight to run overnight so I sent my 787 on a 16+ hour jaunt CYUL-ZSPD. It’s actually just past the halfway point now so I’ll finish my flight when I get home from work. My initial impressions from C&D to cruise level are that it looks great, sounds great, works as I would expect. The 787 itself is a very cool plane and I’m going to enjoy learning its nuances. It got enough Boeing familiarity so I’m not totally lost, but enough difference from earlier boeings to make it interesting. One minor annoyance is that if you install both the old and new Air Canada 788 liveries they have the same name so P3D doesn’t allow that. It’s an easy fix though. All in all a good first impression and we’ll see where we go from here.
