  1. I was considering messing around with Prepar3d, I have v2.5 from awhile ago and thought that perhaps it might be worth upgrading, and I was also wondering if there was a list of add ons that are compatible from FSX?
  2. What is it exactly?
  3. I'm attempting to get Flyinside for fsx working, and it keeps complaining about a SODE process already being active. How do I find it and end the extra one?
  4. Or, any 3rd party add on like it?

    How does Boeing or other manufacturers use Python?

    As far as programming languages go it is one of the easiest to pick up, and a great one if you're learning to program. It's also got a couple of really nice frameworks for web development which is what I want to work in.
  6. I noticed when hunting for a Python job that Boeing uses it. Sadly I do not have enough years experience for the job and I am also not a senior programmer, otherwise I would have jumped at it. I know that Python is used a lot in web work, and in higher mathematics. So I assume it's calculating really complex equations? Or is it something else entirely?

    Black screen, but am able to exit FSX?

    Yeah it came back. After I restarted. Next time I'm going to try and view the map and see what happens.
  8. I left for a bit and came back, originally to a white screen. I pressed the esc,key and that brought up the normal menu for that button. When I clicked continue flight the white screen became black. What was this?

    What should I do to celebrate graduating?

    I was going to do a business degree, but got kind of discouraged recently by how long I thought it was going to take. Then I found that I could be done in 2 less semesters with an associates in science degree. Maybe not, but it would look better on my resume instead of business since I'm going into computer programming. At this point all I want to do is be done and have the piece of paper, because it will open up more things to me in the long run.
  10. I had a long and meandering path towards graduation, which will either happen in the fall or spring depending on what classes I can get. I didn't even know I was that close. The time it took mostly due to me not having much funding made me feel like it would go on forever. I want to do something fun to mark the occasion. I'm not much of a drinker sadly.

    Sloeed to 220 kph close to the end of my flight?

    None though there might have been a waypoint on the flight that is part of a star? I’ll check things but as I said it’s been some time since I flown. Patrick Boynton
  12. I was cruising along happily and suddenly I noticed a massive drop by my lnav speed bug. I haven’t flown this aircraft in quite some time and want to know why this happened? It caused me to miss the next descent checkpoint. Is this new? I don’t remember it from before. I was attempting to descend to fl 111, but it wouldn’t go down while the speed was decreasing. I’m assuming this can be changed in the fmc? Pattick Boynton

    Random sound cutouts?

    The sound randomly shuts off at different points during the flight, and seems to have no relation to anything I am doing. Any ideas on why it randomly mutes? This current flight I was flying the PMDG NGX, and using RC4.
  14. I’m switching careers to programming soon and I’m looking outside the box for ideas to look up for. The pay doesn’t matter as long as it meets the average pay for junior programmers. This really is just a curiosity question.
  15. I didn't read the error it gave me, but I just assumed it was one of those innocuous things that you just don't pay attention to and didn't even read it, but whatever it was caused FSX to crash, and I haven't flown since, mostly due to not having time. Anyone else had this issue with AS16? I was flying from CYVR to KSFO in the PMDG 737 NGX V2.
