  1. I have just installed the fresh P3D version without problems. FSLabs Control Center has also been updated (now version, but the Airbus is not yet compatible. Michael
  2. I had to delete my Standard.xml file, so that P3D could build a fresh one. Now, it sits on the ° ^ key, left of number 1 (german keyboard). Michael
  3. I am sitting in my FSL A320 in VR on the way from PAYA to CYEG at FL330 while writing. FPS is about 30 (unlocked). When I turn my head in VC view, there is no lag at all. During climb phase, I was impressed how sharp the mountains could peek through clouds. That was a big problem with EA but is solved since 5.3! I did make no tweaks to the Prepar3D.cfg. VolumetricClouds.cfg is controlled by ActiveSky. In outside view, there are short moments when I have the impression that small wafers begin to form, but they soon fall apart. Is that ActiveSky at work? I won´t go back to my (stable) 5.2 HF2. Michael
  4. Same here - I deleted the VolumetricClouds.cfg and let build a new one (no idea if this was the trick). Anyway, I do not see these ugly wafers. Michael
  5. ActiveSky Open Beta 8005 for P3D v5.3 already available: Downloads | HiFi Simulation Technologies (hifisimtech.com) Michael
  6. I am glad to read so many comments in support of P3D. I find myself flying MSFS for some hours only after a new update has arrived (mostly Aerosoft CRJ and PMDG DC-6). Once helicopters are available, I will devote more time to it because of the sheer beauty in VR. But I will always go back to P3Dv5 for IFR (which I also do in VR) with PMDG 737/747/777, FSL A320, TFdi 717, Majestic Dash-8, Milviz King Air 350, Leonardo MD-82 and my A2A collection. For ATC, I still think that ProAtc-X is unsurpassed and that MSFS is missing something similar. May be we will get the next iteration of P3Dv5 within a few months, and may be we will see some surprising development. Michael
  7. The Dornier Do-27 (and the Diamond Katana Da-20) were developed by Marcel Felde. Together with Hans Hartmann, Alexander Metzger and others, he formed "Digital Aviation". Their products were marketed through Aerosoft, among others. Back in 2011, Marcel Felde began to work on the Pilatus PC-6 B2-H4 Turbo Porter with the registration D-FELI for Aerosoft (see https://www.simflight.de/bald-von-marcel-felde-pilatus-pc-6-poter-fur-fsx/). One reason for the slow progress was the exact simulation of avionics and powerplant. In 2018, Aerosoft cancelled the project (see https://www.simflight.de/aerosoft-kuendigt-pilatus-pc-6-ab/). It would be great if the upcoming PC-6 is based on this one. Pictures of the real world D-FELI: http://www.pc-6.com/history/845.htm# Michael
  8. Alex, you should read about the former socialist economy: when something new was developed, a stately committee would ask "Who is this for?". They did very well with this approach. Michael
  9. Is it possible to define a window in MSFS to access the desktop while flying in VR (HP Reverb G2)? Michael
  10. I had the same. When I clicked on MSFS inside the store, there was the update button. Michael
  11. Sorry Andreh, I forgot to answer: indeed, ALL water reflections have to be unchecked to get rid of the reflection ring. Michael
  12. I have played with cloud reflections (in P3D Options, World, Water and Bathymetrie). For me, the white ring is visible in VR independently of cloud reflections setting. However, it occurs within seconds when I limit maximum upper visibility below 200 in AS (version 7857). Michael
  13. Great discussion here. I am seeing the same disturbing white ring around my cockpit while flying above the ocean in VR. I will play with the reflection settings and report back later today. Michael
  14. a quick report: I am on the way from CYEG to KPDX, FL330 with the PMDGNGXu. It is completely overcast. Haze is less than before HF1. From inside the cockpit, I see no waffles. Whenever I have the impression that there is a pattern arising, the clouds mix somehow. (Is this triggered by Active Sky?) In outside view, there are still some waffles. But that does not disturb me since I fly in VR only and do not leave my cockpit once I am airborne. I am quite satisfied with how it is developing. Michael
  15. My second hobby is trainsimming. Over in those forums it is the same: if a new route or loco is announced, there is enthusiasm and "can´t wait". Soon after release, there is mainly nitpicking. Therefore, go flying, find technical help in the huge knowledgebase of our forums and offer help to others. Michael
