  1. 01/09 - Updated to include a manual request for descent enroute
  2. The link below is for a one page pdf printable overview of the most commonly used commands in P2ATC for quick reference during flight. Image attached for preview purposes only. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4zu7eyid9jfqb7y/P2ATC_commands.pdf?dl=0
  3. 1. Windows 10 Settings 2. Time & Language 3. (Side menu) Region & Language 4. + Add a Language 5. Select a Language (from the list in the link that I posted, so you can be sure the language pack actually contains a voice) 6. Click on the Language name and click Options (there are three choices - Set as Default - Options - Remove) 7. Click Download in the Speech section 8. Restart Windows once download is complete 9. Congratulations, you have downloaded a language pack with speech and these steps are clearly outlined in the manual.
  4. 1. In the P2ATC manual, page 112, it shows how to add a language pack. 2. The link is only there to show which language packs contain voices, just scroll down to the VOICE section
  5. You can use the link below to view which language packs contain speech packs, just scroll down to the VOICE section, and in the P2ATC manual, page 112, it shows how to add a language pack. Not every voice is great for English language readbacks but they're free and they're good quality. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/uwp/api/windows.media.speechsynthesis.speechsynthesizer Combined with my Ivona voices, I now have a different voice for every controller, at last..
  6. JYW - you can get external PBR textures here for free from AeroSimGaming, the guys who made the new flight model for vFlyteAir, they also have a revised flight model here for the Caravan that works great. As much as I would love to have the Cargomaster expansion, after seeing what is possible with a native XP11 piece of payware, like the vFlyteAir Cherokee, Carenado need to stop providing updates for 5 year old models and release something mind blowing and new that is truly made for XP11. Apart from the C208, I am always left wanting more with Carenado..
  7. Are the cockpit textures now higher resolution? I have the XP10 version and the cockpit labelling is not very sharp. I would buy it if it feels like an upgrade but not just for PBR, which I have for free externally, and an optimised flight model, which again, I have for free.. EDIT - I just found the review (http://xplanereviews.com/index.php?/forums/topic/652-aircraft-review-c208b-grand-caravan-hd-series-xp11-by-carenado/&tab=comments#comment-2413) and the textures all look the same as before.. no update.
  8. EDIT - As luck would have it, I found the answer after posting.. There is a new art control to access the fog.. set("sim/private/controls/fog/fog_be_gone", 0.30) --- Original Post --- Am I right in thinking that you cannot use a .lua script to access sim/private datarefs in XP11 RC2 any more? I have been using these small scripts to control shadows in the cockpit and ground haze but it does not appear to work any more. Haze fix set("sim/private/controls/fog/std_deviation_cutoff", 0.50) Shadow fix set("sim/private/controls/fbo/shadow_cam_size", 8192.0) set("sim/private/controls/shadow/csm_split_exterior", 2.0) set("sim/private/controls/shadow/last_3d_pass", 2.0)
  9. Old post but you can use Reshade to get rid of the banding. Just turn on the Deband option!
  10. 1. Cut and paste the text in the grey window below into a new document in a text editor e.g. Notepad++. 2. Save this document with the filename hi-res-shadows.lua and place it in the X-Plane 11\Resources\plugins\FlyWithLua\Scripts folder 3. Start X-Plane This lua script increases the resolution of cockpit shadows to maximum, you can choose between 2048, 4096 and 8192. Your fps might take a slight hit, it depends on the complexity of the shadows to be rendered, but you won't have jagged shadows in the cockpit any more. YMMV set("sim/private/controls/fbo/shadow_cam_size", 8192.0) set("sim/private/controls/shadow/csm_split_exterior", 2.0) set("sim/private/controls/shadow/last_3d_pass", 2.0)
  11. Reshade for lighting. FSGRW and Willzah's HD Unique Clouds Variety Pack for weather depiction. Ortho4XP ground textures. Scenery GB Pro v2. Route: EGGW EGTH WCO SAM EGHH
  12. Hi Dave, I've just installed Pilot2ATC demo and am having the same problem. My microphone works fine except in Pilot2ATC, where nothing is recognised except pushing the PTT button in the sim makes the Pilot2ATC button highlight in green to indicate it's receiving. I have tried running as admin, changing audio to 44100, default device etc etc and nothing has worked. Thanks for your help, Toby
  13. Is there an in-game pop up window at all or is it all in the separate window?
  14. It's photoscenery created with Ortho4XP.
  15. Two more from my latest flight... default clouds using FSGRW weather injection...
