    Recently retired and thought this meant I would be a full time F-simmer, wife thinks not. Still we have a good balance.

  1. Hello Alex, and thank you for your reply. I tried the to options you suggested but I think it may be something else. I'm using 21.04 version which may have changed the way LNM is rendered. This orphan window I speak of appear as soon as LNM loads and stays on the screen in a fixed position until LNM is closed. Here is another link showing the two themes, but most significantly is shot of the window still appearing even after minimizing LNM to the desktop. https://mega.nz/folder/D51R1C7b#UMvSz6Wv2yUmzj8m9l3mAA Hope this helps, Cheers Anton.
  2. Long time user of LNM in FSX, P3D, XP11 and now MSFS and trying to set up as a remote on a spare notebook running Linux (PopOS, KDE-plasma) After installing LNM loads ok but there is a small orphaned window that sits on top of and to the side of LNM that appears to be left from when LNM loads. I can move the LNM window around but the other (unlabelled) window remains on top of LNM. I did a fresh download and the same thing happens Love some help on this please (I did try to do a search for "Linux" as a keyword but nothing shows. This is a separate issue I have with searches in AVSIM. (See attachment) https://mega.nz/file/Gw1UmS7Z#6tacjfscfJ1yAvO92WwypfG972enwuS8o_zt3H9QSiI
  3. No need to wait. I’ve flown it for two days and it’s just superb. In every detail. Textures 10/10, handling 10/10, systems- easy 9/10. Love it
  4. Hi Michael, not sure you would not have seen this but a developer has come to our rescue with a tool called "MSFS Addons Linker" which in essence allows keeping addons in a root folder of your choice with any number of nested folders while the tool creates Symbolic links to the MFS Community folder. Very easy UI that looks like two spreadsheet tabs. The tool also allows update tracking. I highly recommend it. Here is the Link: https://flightsim.to/file/1572/msfs-addons-linker Cheers Anton.
  5. I am getting more and more pleasure while flying in MFS, especially with the aid of the community addons and fixes. I just hope that an official change is done to the simple structure of the community folder and the free for all way that addons are being named with no conventions. My list is now over 200 (paid and freeware) and it is becoming difficult to find what I have/don’t have and to keep track of versions.
  6. After a long career in IT, I saw the practice repeated many times, especially from large corporations. they say it is to protect novices from messing up their systems. I saw it as those same companies protecting themselves. Smacks of “we are in the know, everyone else are plebs”. In support of this theory, observe that in the early days of computing (pre MS) people in the industry used to wear White coates, this helped give them an elite status.

  9. Aircraft 1. DA40. When I have loaded this plane, none of the Autopilot buttons work on the G1000 MFD. Aircraft 2. VL-3 This is a great little plane, but for the life in me I can’t work out how to set the A/P. I see the Heading bug and ALT setting knob. But where do you turn on the A/P and select ALT HDG VS etc. If someone can help me I would be very happy. On the other hand on other planes the A/P are modelled quite well, especially the Bonanza G36, TBM930 and the X-Cub
  10. Pondering on all the names this sim as taken on.... Microsoft Flight Simulator MSFS MSFS2020 MFS MFS2020 MFS20 FS2020 FS20 Have I missed any. It seems all simm’s go through this process. Hopeful that the time will come when we can settle on a standard. My preference would be MFS20 or just MFS. Next on the list would be FS20. Thinking outside the box, we used to call a predecessor - FSX which stood for FS version 10, extrapolating that we could have FSXX for version 20!
  11. Thank to the Guys at Drzewiecki Design, I downloaded and they are a lot of fun. Here is a link to some screehshots to this fun: It's tricky to get into EPKQ Karczew. Oh, I spotted the Easter Eggs on the Wisla River as well.
  12. Today I notices this screen option in Settings: USE GENERIC PLANE MODELS (MULTIPLAYER) This may be the option to make planes show in the Maps
  13. If I was game I would give it a try but a lot of time lost if it breaks the sim 😢
  14. Hi Rick, do you know if it is possible to sectionalise the Community folder with main sub folders like US scenery, UK Scenery etc. first then place appropiate addons in the sub folders?
  15. For my own peace of mind I have attempted to collect a list of all the main file location of the new Sim. I thought I would share it here so it might help others: Note: I have not covered all the steps in installation just the structure of my install which resides on my G: SSD G: main install drive. (with a symbolic link junction from C:) AC [14Kb] AppData [empty] LocalCache [mine is now 107Gb] (This appears to be the main MFS folder) LocalState (KHE, Missions, Weather, Flights and Flight plans) [ RoamingState [empty] Settings [contains settings.dat (binary)] TempState [empty] 3. LocalCache has these folders: Facilities, [8Kb] Packages, (All default and addon Scenery and Aircraft files) [98.8Gb] PC, [empty] SceneryCache, [empty] SceneryIndexes, [1.5Kb] SimObjects, [26Kb] and these files: CAMERAS.CFG, 5,672 bytes, 18/08/2020 10:36:26 Content.xml, 2,539 bytes, 18/08/2020 10:36:02 FlightSimulator.CFG, 2,194 bytes, 22/08/2020 22:06:56 GRANTEDREWARDS.BIN, 84 bytes, 18/08/2020 10:36:26 ROLLINGCACHE.CCC, 8,589,934,592 bytes, 22/08/2020 22:01:33 SimConnect.xml, 1,764 bytes, 18/08/2020 10:36:26 UserCfg.opt, 1,791 bytes, 22/08/2020 15:14:2 3.2 Packages has two folders: Community, [empty] ****** NOTE: this is the one that will become the equivalent of CustomScenery in X-plane11 This is where all our Addons will reside Official, [98.8Gb] this has one folder OneStore - in here resides all the default scenery and aircraft files
