    Questions before purchase

    I have just upgraded myself, and have only just started learning to use it. regarding your bundle question, as far as I am aware they are all bundled together now for the one price.

    AI Traffic/ General Performance

    The old saying "Moderation in all things" springs to mind, I run UTLive @ 30% and road traffic @ 15% with no problems. Those figures give more than enough eye candy to the Sim (P3D v4.3)

    Using ProATC/X problems

    If you use the path I gave you, when you ask for clearance the plan will load automatically, in the MCDU type (as an example) GCTS/EGCC (a flight I have just completed) click enter and the plan will load, it is then deleted from the folder, so if you look for it it won't be there. The GCTS/EGCC goes into the "top right hand box" I'll make a 1 min vid to show you. Video:

    Re: ProATC X Help

    For those using ProATC there is a Facebook group "ProATC X User's Group" link here: We have three admins available to give advice as well as the guys developing it popping in from time to time. (Any problems regarding crashes etc should still be posted to the Pointsoft website along with the log of the flight). There is also a file section with a selection of real ATC (background chatter).

    Using ProATC/X problems

    Hi Gary, this is a copy of a private message I left you:- " Hi Gary, I noticed your were struggling with ProATC, so I thought I jump in and offer some help. First and foremost welcome to PATC. I have been a user and beta tester since ProATC was first released, below is a video on it's use. How to get the flightplan into the new A318/20 Pro (I use it 3 times a day everyday). Go to "Options/Folder Paths and use the "top" path for the AS Pro (all models) C:\Users\Your Name\Documents\Aerosoft\General\A3XX Flightplans\ This will insert the FP at the correct time (after you ask for clearance) I have loads of vids on my channel showing both the A318 and A320 with ProATC in action. Hope this helps. I have also put the link to the ProATC Help Facebook page, where you can go to get help with using ProATC."
  6. Hi Graham, where could I get these amazing presets? P.S. just seen your YouTube channel, excellent, subbed.
  7. The combination of REX SF 3D and HiFi's ASP4 for realistic cloud and weather depiction in my opinion is unbeatable. I have all of the major weather engines including the ASCA addon, but, I have yet to see anything that comes close to the realism portrayed with the above combination.

    Who's going to Cosford in 2018?

    I'm driving up from Essex with an empty car, so if anyone requires a lift I'll be leaving (very) early on Saturday morning.

    Things I don't understand.................

    Excuse me!! It was invented by accident. In the late 19th Century a German scientist, Justus Liebig, discovered brewer's yeast could be concentrated, bottled and eaten. In 1902 the Marmite Food Company was founded inBurton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, where the raw material was readily available from the town's brewers. 😉 P.S. I tried Vegemite........and threw it in the bin 🤢
