    Non realistic clouds in P3D V4.3

    You Sir, have amazing eyesight! I couldn't even see the aircraft, let alone the clouds. 😜

    A320 Family - Aerosoft or FSLabs ?

    I also have and use both, just to add to what Alan has said about AS Pro series, the performance on my AMD machine is phenomenal.
  6. I would hazard a guess that LM are using v1, 2, 3 and 4 as stepping stones to v5, where it's rumoured there will be some major upgrades to parts of the engine. So at this stage it's probably a waiting game where it pays to be a PMDG customer, as apparently we have the patience of a saint 😜

    New to PMDG, but flew the real B-747 400 for UAL

    +1000, and John forgot to mention P3D v4 is now a 64 bit app, which means, no more OOMS
  8. There was a spate of this when the TM Warthog was released, lot's of the circuit boards burnt out, and yet the majority (mine included) were (and still are) fine. I believe it was a dodgy batch of components, and the same will probably prove true for the 2080's

    P3d replicates my life! Wonderful!

    FSX replicates my life!............ CTD just as I get to a good bit.😜

    Removing Trees obstructing a runway

    Sounds like the layering is incorrect, make sure all your airports are at the top of the scenery list in FSX

    Quality Wings 787 vs PMDG 747-400 (800)

    The PMDG 747 without a doubt, but remember to get the 747-8 you will need to purchase the 747-400 base first.

    737 performance

    The PMDG 737NGX runs really well on my AMD 8350 machine, so it should run like a dream on yours, highly recommended (and I believe there are some tasty updates in the not to distant future)

    Getting rid of AI on taxiway

    In UT Live I just reset the traffic when my path is blocked by an AI, and no, it's not possible to remove a single AI aircraft in UT Live I'm afraid.
