  1. Andrew, Thank you for your great work. Glad to read I can finally get most everything set up in MSFS again after the latest MSFS patch was released yesterday. Downloaded your latest release Gives me something to look forward to setting up again. Both FSUIPC as well as Linda are "must haves" for me.
  2. That is not a bad suggestion, but that was already a denominator for me, lol. I'd rather pay for a good aircraft representation, as I will end up buying that in the end anyways, and then ignoring the default, as those defaults will never get to the level of "payware" quality add-on's
  3. Going to purchase as well. I just look at what deluxe and premium deluxe add, and think by myself: will I be flying these additional airplanes frequently, and depart or land at those additional airport on a regular basis? In my case: Deluxe Premium Deluxe The additional aircraft: 1 - NO 1 - Maybe 2 - NO 2 - NO 3 - YES 3 - NO 4 - YES 4 - NO 5 - YES 5 - NO The additional airports: 1 - YES 1 - YES 2 - NO 2 - NO 3 - NO 3 - MAYBE 4 - YES 4 - MAYBE 5 - NO 5 - YES I will take possible payware add-on replacements in consideration (KDEN by FlightBeam at $14.99 as an example) What do you think I will be going with ???
  4. Well, I ended up contacting Microsoft support a few days ago to rest my mind. What I was told matches what @howevr stated above. If I cancel my Game Pass subscription, I will lose the access to the sim including Premium Deluxe. I will have to purchase at least the Standard version at $59.99. That would mean I would end up paying $59.99 for Standard PLUS the $84.99 I already paid for Premium Deluxe, which comes to a total of $144.98. A quick calculation....$144.98 - $119.99 = $24.99 that I paid more than when I just purchased Premium Deluxe right out. Since I was already looking at getting Deluxe at $89.99, I filed a refund request a few days ago, and they refunded the $84.99 today (may take another 5 business days to be back in my account) Once the Money is in the account, I will go ahead and purchase the Deluxe version, which covers my needs. Then I can just cancel the Game Pass subscription. End of story for me.
  5. Well, I did "purchase" the Premuim Deluxe" version through the market place, after going back and forth for a day, trying to wrap my head around the $35 price difference. I must have read all there was to read numerous times, and nowhere did it show it was for GamePass members only. Guess, will see in 3 weeks what happens, as that will be when I end my subscription.
  6. Thanks for the heads up. Downloaded and will test it out later this evening.
  7. I am having the exact same issue. Bought it two days ago, but in P3Dv4.5 the VC disappears after a few seconds, and the outside view has a black square over the top wing. From the rear you can see everything between the two wings, but when you move your view towards the front side, there appears a black field between the two wings on the front. I am installing this plane in P3Dv4.5 though. One weird thing I did notice, is that the installer created a ATsimulatins folder in the main P3D/Content folder which holds a texture and sounds sub folder with files. Normally the developer folder holds files like manuals, but there is no manual to be found. I just reached out to ATsimulations for a resolution. We will see what happens.,
  8. Yes, I was finally able to activate PTA Tool. There must have been a server issue. Would have been nice if someone at SimTweaks had responded to my thread here and/or my reported issue through "contact us". This is the second time I contacted SimTweaks regarding an issue (first one was not being able to complete a purchase). No matter how good a product is, customer service is certainly the decisive factor on future purchases for me. Not a good customer service experience at all.
  9. I purchased PTA the other day. When I try to activate it, the log shows a server error. I use the serial# provided in the email from SimTweaks. Installed PTA version 2.61 Sim: P3Dv4.2 OS: Windows 10
  10. Thank you Andrew, That saves me a lot of work. I will go ahead and copy the modules over.
  11. Okay, I have been looking all over for the answer to this question, so I will just post it here. I am a long time Linda user on Linda with FSX. I just purchased and installed P3Dv4.1 and FSUIPC5. Can I use/copy my Linda assignments from FSX straight in to P3Dv4, or do I have to configure all my assignments from scratch? Any constructive response will be highly appreciated.
  12. I think he is unhappy with the latter
  13. This a great addition to the FSX tutorials I created years ago, and still use. I did find some contradictions, unless I read it wrong: Texture_Bandwidth_Mult=40. we recommend a setting no higher than 40. We do not recommend anything higher than 120. So is 40 or 120 the highest recommended? Upper_Framerate_Limit=30. We do not recommend anything lower than 20. If you have a very modern overclocked system (an Intel i7 or AMD comparable), we recommend setting this parameter to 0 (unlimited). So, if 20 is the lowest setting recommended, then why recommend a setting of "0" a few sentences further? I hope you understand my confusion. Again, I really appreciate the effort put in to providing the updated guide.
  14. I don't think what is left behind will be "dead". Look at how many simmers are still enjoying FS2004!! I do understand the decision made, and am pleased to see it being made by multiple developers in one statement. We will all be going through similar experiences when FS2004 was followed up by FSX. So I am sure FSX will still be used for years to come, (not everyone has the funds to purchase P3Dv4 or update their hardware to be able to run this new simulator. Now I need to look in to finding funds to get P3Dv4 myself. (and FSUIPC to program my switches)
