  1. What should I do to celebrate graduating?

    Run around in circles and scream? I don't know.
  2. Flying over London

    And I've done it. As soon as I got my new computer last week, I already had P3D V4 on it. With FSX, I would only be able to fly at most 5.5 hours before running out of memory, so that would be around 3 or 4 flights. When I tested P3D V4, I was able to fly 8 flights for a total of 12 hours. Whether it was a good idea is an entirely different story altogether, but I didn't run into any issues when I did it. This would have been with the PMDG Boeing 747-400 along with 8 different add-on airport sceneries.
  3. My time machine....

    Meanwhile, I've gone from FSX to P3D V4 after having just bought a new computer last week.
  4. Flying over London

    I guess that depends on how long of a flight you fly, as I've had FSX-SE go out of memory after 5.5 hours of flying. Of course, all the complex add-ons I have might do it.
  5. DST in P3D

    Not since last Sunday. Now it's -5 and -4 respectively because of Daylight Savings Time. Google tells me it's now 20:20 PM Zulu, local time here is 16:20 PM, and I'm in Florida.
  6. New to PMDG777 and unsure on function [Solved]

    Am I the only one who DIDN'T fly tutorial 1?
  7. PMDG 777-200LR for Prepar3D v4.2

    I assumed he was speaking in reference to PMDG's current product line, not flight simulator add-ons in general.
  8. Upgrade for P3D from FSX?

    It's only a free upgrade to V4 if you already had the P3D version for V3. If you're going from FSX to P3D, there is no upgrade price, and you'll pay full price.
  9. The only way I can really see this being worth it is if you really only fly a particular plane all the time unless you don't care so much about realism. It would be very unusual to fly a 737 and an A340 with a 747 flight deck, for instance.
  10. Repaint Tutorial

    Thing is you really do need to know how to use Photoshop in order to use any of the paint kits. If you don't, you need to figure that out first, so I'd say start by looking for tutorials on how to use Photoshop in general. Kind of hard to really give a tutorial on how to use Photoshop to paint a plane since every livery is different, so you might not necessarily use everything that's there. For instance, Delta's livery has curves. American's old livery didn't. All the same, American's old livery had bare metal, and Delta's livery doesn't. It's pretty much impossible to come up with a full blown tutorial for every possible scenario, and doing so would be a complete waste of time.
  11. Take off roll issue

    First two things I'd check are your engine instruments and flight control indications to see if either the engines are producing different levels of thrust or you have a control surface not centered.
  12. I thought of a few things, so...
  13. PMDG moving to own forum platform

    So is it going to be announced here when it's ready, or are we going to have to check Facebook. I'm not really on Facebook all that much these days.
  14. B737 CRZ Target Speed

    I could be wrong, but doesn't that indicate that the 235 speed limit is based on flap setting? Did you inadvertently drop the flaps somehow?
  15. Pilot aggression

    Not sure how often maintenance is pushing buttons, and I guess it also depends on what exactly he does in the first place. If, for instance (and I don't know him, so I don't know what he does, but I'm just using this as an example), he works only on the engines, he likely wouldn't know much about the buttons.
