  1. Please, Please Please... any Heavy for XP11 more modern than the DC-6...! I have so much money to burn for XP11 and no AC to spend it on! :-(

    Anyone want to try your PMDG skills in 777 simulator

    Know exactly where you are going and it's an excellent facility... Been there quite a bit myself... Had to do an emergency landing with the 777 in Brazil with one engine out! Re: My profile pic... Looks very similar to yours ;-)
  3. Is there anyway to save a flight and have the AC load in it's previous configuration? As it is now every time I save a Flight in FSX the AC loads in a Gate mode meaning that the engines aren't on and I fall like a rock from the sky!

    Major Issue with FS Global 2010 FTX

    Many FSX Default Airports are at the wrong elevation which causes this issue all over the place with this add-on. Unfortunately the only way to fix this is to individually alter the elevation of every effected airport with an editor. It's why FS Global 2010 is currently inactive in my library. Eventually FTX Vector is supposed to fix this but it's still got many issues and bugs to resolve.
  5. Is anyone else finding that the t7 has incredibly loud engine noise. Just sitting in the pit at FL400 in CRUISE it sounds like the engines are right in the cockpit with me. Almost deftening in external views as well. Shouldn't the engines be barely audible in the pit at high altitude and high speed? I have my FSX sound settings setup per the PMDG Manual all at 50% but even with the engine should level dropped to 24% its still way too loud.... Are the sound settings system and/ or soundcard specific? I have a top of the line brand new SB card but am wondering if its supposed to sound this loud.
  6. Is this the much anticipated UPDATE to FSX and will a new version be as good or better than P3D? Will Dovetail finally get rid of the OOM's? Thoughts?
  7. I'm getting very comfortable with planning and saving Flight Plans in PFPX for the 777... However my confusion now comes from importing and Activating the Imported FP into the 777 FMC and getting the correct wind/TO and Landing numbers. Is there a tutorial somewhere that picks up from the PFPX imported FP to getting all the numbers correctly set into the 777 FMC? Thanks!

    Any word on SP1...?

    IIRC Feb. 4th was mentioned as the final test date for SP1 followed by the relase of same... Has there been any additional word?
  9. Cruising over S. FL with the PMDG T7 last night when I got for the first time ever the dreaded OOM Error... I'm running a LOD of 4.5 with only FSDT KFLL and UTX/GEX (0% vehicle, ship traffic), REX (1024 textures only), UT2 (AI sliders at 40% and 25%) in the area, Autogen set to DENSE and only running 1024, in my max tex load in FSX.cfg. So basically I can't lower anything further or reduce anything to really prevent this OOM. I have windows 7 premium 64bit 12 gig tri-channel mem and a 7850 2gig ATI card. Despite the incredibly fast CPU systems with powerful GPUs and running 24+ gigs of memory are we finally reaching the point of diminishing returns with this sim and all the wonderful addons? I can only imagine the additional problems FTX global LC, Mesh, Vector, and textures with cause once all of the regions are released. Will there ever be a 64-bit update?

    Have this one on my list as well... Great user vid of BOS here:

    Is Ftx Global Worth The 100 Bucks?

    Really, I still prefer the UTX areas over the Vector areas... Besides UTX containing LC data... Roads look much better you get accurate secondary roads and tons of options to change UTX to your specific desires... Not enough in Vector alone (is no secondary roads) to get me to dump UTX currently. Although that may change with Orbx LC data...
  12. I have the freeware FSUIPC 4928 version running in FSX with ASN... Do I have to manually disable FSUIPC weather via the control panel every time I start or run FSX? Is there a way to ensure FSUIPC isn't loading the weather and to permanently disable the weather feature so as not to conflict with ASN? Thanks!

    01APR14 - Quick PMDG 777 SP1 Update

    How is it that the Majestic Q 400 has a working weather radar and one doesn't have to have ASN for it to work. Are the Devs at Majestic better than the devas at PMDG...?

    Northern California/Oh My!

    Nice! How's the FPS?
  15. Nice! The water looks great are you using DX10?
  16. Since the Q400 is said to run outside of FSX does this mean weather related turbulence in FSX has no effect on this AC? What about weather from programs like Active Sky or Opus?

    FTX Vector with FlyTampa VHHX

    You need to post this on the FTX website under the Vector support forum as a BUG report...
  18. amazing..!!! How's the FPS hit there with all that detail?

    PMDG 777 and DX10

    I was wondering if I'd see a significant Performance Benefit on a 3.06ghz I7...? But I guess if it helped at 2.4ghz, I just might have to give it a try!

    PMDG 777 and DX10

    And you're doing this on a 2.4 Ghz processor...?

    Rain Drops in VC?

    Regarding raindrops in VC and performance why not just simulate rain drops while on the ground taxing at low speed? The raindrops could then run up the windshield at takeoff speed and disappear once in the air? My FPS is always better on the ground than in the air anyway and at higher speeds the raindrops wouldn't be noticeable on the windshield anyway...

    Half sized files to increase frame of 777

    This sounds promising and further updates?
  23. Poor guy (OP) he has no idea how confusing this all can get but is getting a crash course now! LOL!
