  1. I know this question has been stated before many many many many times. As far as I know PMDG (others too) used to point out Airbus' unwillingness to cooperate with simulation developers. But things change - take a look (who hasn't seen it already): http://www.airbus.com/newsevents/news-events-single/detail/officially-licensed-projecting-airbus-brand-and-image-in-the-computer-simulation-market/ Whoever will get a call from them, it's defintiely a good thing for flight simulation!
  2. I still envision Prepar3D to includ a realistic dazzling-effect, like in DCS World 2 - have a look here (froogle): Developers like PMDG could then include the adjustable sun blinds to reduce the effect... This would add such a great amount of realism for approaches performed in the early hours or the evening (e.g. RWY 28 at SFO) Not really related to the actual topic, but just my hopes for the future
  3. There's a screenshot I took earlier... I noticed that fog (visibility) and even the flashes of the thunderstorm are shown, but no clouds! Anybody seeing the same thing?
  4. Hi there, I just bought the 777-300ER Extension package (again :wink: ). One thing I love is of course is the Taxi-Camera, or GMCS, and thank you very much for making it not just a 2D popup, but implemented into the VC (I guess through some cooperation with LM!?) Anyway... is it a limitation to P3D, that in the bottom two pictures (central landing gear) no weather is being rendered? Or is it a method of yours to reduce the impact on performance? I noticed it on all my testflights so far and was just curious, not that it really bothers me... Sorry that I got no screenshot ready, but I guess you get my point! Cheers! Carl
  5. I had the same "problem" when I first loaded up the 777 into Prepar3D in a dawn/dusk situation with the sun coming from the back. As I understand this "limitiation of the VC model", P3D only simulates the shadows of the model that is loaded right at this moment, which would be either the external, or the internal (VC), not both. (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) When you move "outside" of the VC (like through the windows if you understand what I mean) by using EZDOK or just the key-commands from P3D you will see what is model and only this will cast shadows! The only two ways I see this problem to be solved would either be PMDG adding the whole external model to the VC, which would probably be a hard hit on the framerates, or the guys behind Prepar3D find a workaround in the code of the simulator itself to combine both models for the shadows to display correctly! Hope this helped you..
  6. Download the PMDG_VHHX [NG] v2.0 file from this page, run the installer, and you'll be good to go! http://www.vapap.com/kai-tak-airport It worked like a charm for me, hope it does for you as well
