    Auto fuel/tank config is not always working for me (748)

    Ok, thanks for your reply, Kevin! This issue, I guess, mostly comes into play on longer flights when more of the tanks are filled. This was my first flight that ever utilized the stab tanks. I start off with the overrides on so that all four engines draw fuel from the center tanks. With auto tank/fuel set to on, I am expecting the logic to automatically turn off the overrides. In this particular flight I also had fuel in the stab tanks, and I am assuming that the center tank, when empty, is to be turned off while the stab tank is transferred to center tanks. Then the stab tanks are to be turned off while you resume drawing from the center tanks. It's a pity that the auto fuel/tank feature doesn't handle this complexity because then I cannot leave the flight on it's on for long hauls the way I could on the 744. What is the point of the auto feature on the 748?
  2. I have the fuel/tank config set to auto because I mostly fly overnight longhaul flights when I sleep. Sometimes everything is fine when I return, but often it's not. Ie. today I was flying from Buenos Aires to Frankfurt (13,5 hours), and after several hours into the flight, the stab L R warning showed up (they were off when I left the cockpit, and should have been turned on (when ctr was empty?). Also the CTR L and R were not configured correctly (they were on when I left the plane, but should have been turned off). I guess this automatic setting of the fuel and tank system is supposed to be for people like me who leave their flights, but it seems it's not working a 100% of the time. At least in the sense that the 744 could be left unattended because of the pause on TOD + auto tank/fuel setting. Is this no longer the logic behind this setting?

    World/cockpit scale in P3D v4.3

    I'm not saying it's anybodys fault. In FlyInside you have a slider to adjust for world scale. This leads me to believe there is a hidden setting somewhere that allows you to adjust the scalar. And I'm not simply complaining about a somewhat cramped cockpit. I'm litterally sitting With my forehead brushing against the overheadpanel when seat height is correct. The cockpit of the 747-400 seems smaller than that of the a318.

    P3Dv4.3 : my observations

    My observations in regards to VR is that native VR in p3d v4.3 is very improved. The fact that you can combine it with HDR is also a big benefit. In previous iterations of p3d I found VR mostly a gimmick. Now it is quite solid, and it plays together with several good quality camera addons (like chaseplane) making it my new preferred way of VR'ing in flightsim. P3D v4.3 is rock solid for me.
  6. I like that I could adjust the scale of the cockpit in FlyInside. Is there any way I could do the same natively in p3d? I'm sitting inside pmdg 744 and the cockpit feels cramped..!

    p3dv43 VR improvements

    I normally don't use 2d popups, but because Aerosoft have chosen to put the settings page into a 2d popup instead of the right mcdu in the new a3xx Professional Version, I don't have a Choice. How can I move the popups within the vc in VR? I don't see any window frame around them which I can click and drag. The popups appear in awkward Places - it would be better if it just appeared outside VR on the monitor instead.
  8. Is it possible to assign interaction (left mouse click) to a joystick button for VR? Ie. through FSUIPC? I was looking through the possible assignments in fsuipc, but couldn't immediately find something like it.

    Trying to purchase the DC6 for XP

    And to set the record straight, PMDG via Kyle Rodgers and the ticket system did indeed refund my money. And also for the record, my apprehension in this thread was not because I wanted the product to become xp11 compatible when it is not. It was that I just paid 70 bucks for a product that had an ambigous text and PMDG staff not being sensitive towards me. They are an international company (at least in the sense that they provide their products to people all over the world), and that necessitates being able to bridge all the different cultures of the customers that they serve. Pointing out customer stupidity might work where Kyle comes from, but I'm willing to bet that is the exception to the rule of what works in most cultures. If Kyle would have given an inch in regards to the minimum spec being ambiguous and that my mistake is only human, then that would have made the entire conversation much easier. In the end, I guess he did say that in his last post where he says "I can see some of the confusion, provided you ignore just about any other use case, and also ignore the issue of supported versus unsupported. Even the reddit crowd (usually particularly keen to point out that I'm a bit abrasive and unhelpful, among other things, and that's using their nicest examples) seems to be understanding the fact that there was no implied XP11 support (even while some of them note that I'm still abrasive)." The conclusion is that I got my money back. I got it back quite quick too, so that is a bonus for the company. I would advice PMDG to spend some effort in customer dialogue in the context of a international scene.

    Trying to purchase the DC6 for XP

    A couple of things: We are both into simulation of air transport, and as such we are both familiar with how ambiguity has lead to many a mishap. I did my due dillegence by reading your minimum specs that says "xp10.45" as a minimum spec. That lead me to investigate further to check if that excluded xp11. The first few hits on the google search "pmdg dc6 compatible with xp11" seemed to verify compatability. Where does it say that I have to understand the version history and how products are handled differently across multiple simulator and their respective versions on a per developer practice? Some products (from other developers) work perfectly well in xp11 even though they say xp10 on the store page. It is too much of a burdon to put on your customers, and I can hardly be the first one to make this mistake. I suggest that you even more clearly specify that the product excludes compatibility with xplane 11. It was a honest mistake to boot, and a kinder and more welcoming reply would have been better for me, you and PMDG. I have opened a ticket to resolve this issue.

    I dont know if you are trying to patronize me by asking such a question, but I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt. I have bought every product PMDG has released, and I've done so across multiple simulators to boot. That makes up quite a lump of money, and as such I would like some respect in return. Your one-line question is at best pedantic and at worst quite insulting. It says 10.45+ which to me implies "Higher than" and not "excluding" xp11. I did a google search before purchasing and the top results were positive about the product working in xp 11 so I thought no more about it. If you are saying that your product is not compatible with xp11 you need to change your minimum spec description so it doesn't just say "xp 10.45+". 70 usd is quite alot of money and you should not be ambiguous about which version it is for. If it's not compatible I would like my money back since I dont use xp 10.

    No, but all of a sudden it worked when doing the paypal method again. :) However, Im trying to activate the product, but the normal activation popup im used from other products don't pop up. When I try to click "activate your product" under plugins-> pmdg, the option is greyed out. All options in the pmdg menu are greyed out, including the product activation. Tried reloading the sim a couple of times but it doesn't change. What shall I do?

    Trying to purchase the DC6 for XP

    ...but the shop cart keep saying it's empty. I did write "yes" in the confirmation box, and verified that there is 1 qty. When I click "checkout" Im taken to the next page that says my cart is empty. When I click purchase via paypal, im taken to my paypal account. After I verify the purchase im taken back to pmdg shop that says my cart is empty... Ive tried with both Chrome and MS Edge, but neither browser does any better. Btw, I already purchased the dc6 for p3d. I don't know if that messes things up?
