  1. Unfortunately I've run into a lot of the same issues you have and PF3 has never been something I've used much as a result. It may be that I'm doing something wrong in the config but the program overall seemed very finicky to me. Having to use key commands rather than a visible menu made it much harder for me to keep tabs on what was going on. I ended up being frustrated way too much for me to send more time on it. It's really too bad as there are some very good features, voices that change depending on airline/location etc and coverage of ICAO and FAA rules depending on location are highlights. Every once and a while I decide to give it another try and always end up installing it out of frustration.
  2. I deleted the clouds.fx, repaired the P3D client and I have clouds again! Thanks very much. As an aside, now that I'm seeing it for the first time ASv4 + Rex Sky Force look great together.
  3. Thanks guys I’ll give that a shot tonight.
  4. Hello, I've run into an issue where I have no low/mid-level clouds, even when the METAR says there should be some. I do have higher level (cirrus) clouds. At first I thought this was an ASv4 issue, but then I tried using the Rex Sky Force weather engine and had the same issue. Even creating custom weather inside P3dv4 with no weather engine running results in no low/mid clouds. I've opened a ticket with Hifi and it's now with the development team, but after doing more experimenting I'm thinking the issue may be bigger than ASv4. I've deleted my shaders multiple times and have reinstalled ASv4. I first noticed this issue after I installed Sky Force though I've been doing a lot of night flying lately so I can't concretely say the issue only started after installing sky force. I had been using ASv4, ASCA and ENVTEX previously. Now I'm using ASv4, ASCA/ENVTEX for sky texture, and Sky Force for cloud rendering/textures. Thanks for any assistance.
  5. If there are bgl files in the main airport scenery that have photo in their name you could try disabling those (rename bgl to off) and see if that works.
  6. The funny thing is I have routes for train simulator where cars routinely drive through the gates in front of and through my train and that didn't stop DTG from releasing those lol
  7. I think given that it's basically one person in Croatia that builds these you'll be paying for them to get get shipped across the Atlantic even if you bought it locally. To each their own, but it's well worth it IMHO.
  8. Crotia...shipping is 55 euros to the US, I had to pay 65 euros as unfortunately Canada is lumped in with "rest of the world" rather than the US for shipping rates.
  9. I just flew in at night with DL on in the TFDI 717 and had very good performance, definitely an improvement.
  10. I tend to get a pause when any large detailed airport loads, I haven't noticed this one be any worse than others.
  11. I bought them direct from the manufacturer and they were shipped to me here in Canada.
  12. It is generally harder to taxi with some hardware than others. I bought a set of MFG Crosswind pedals to replace my Saitek pedals and because they have a much higher input resolution taxiing instantly became a bit easier. If that’s not an option, you’ve already touched on one issue to be aware of, over correcting. Unless you’re making a tight , 90 degree turn you should not normally fully deflect your rudder pedals while taxiing. That’s a hard habit to break. The other thing to be aware of is speed. Because there’s no real sensation of speed when simming it’s very easy to end up going faster than you think. That makes for messy taxiing, both in turns and straightline. A good rule of thumb in an airliner is no faster than 10kts in a 90 degree turn or close to it. I think 20 kts is a reasonable maximum straightline, though perhaps you can get away with a bit faster on a long straight under the right conditions. Use breakaway thrust to get going, small inputs once you’re moving.
  13. Sweet! My friday night flight shall be ATL based...
  14. I’m not familiar with their work, any info/impressions?
  15. Just took off for my inaugural cargo flight out of PANC...great to have this airport back in p3dv4!
