About Me

  • About Me
    Love to Sim - when I was younger and wanted to learn to fly, did not have the dollars to do it....mid-life, had the money, not the time....later in life, more than have the money, but a pacemaker prevents me from getting a license - SO, "me thinks" the Sim is the next best thing. I'm in the process of building a Motion Platform for Simming.

    P3D v3.2 vs. v3.3 - visible improvements

    Rob, so sorry for your loss. Been there, done that, and it's a physical and emotional roller coaster. Blessings to you sir.
  2. In all probability, it's in the P3D folder, SimObjects, and aircraft's name............several folders inside of this folder. Most "all" aircraft.cfg's are located this way.

    2 P3dV2 installs on same computer?

    P3d "knows" when there are two versions on one pc and will not open........been there, done that.
  4. Please confirm: North America, Parts 001 & 002 ONLY cover Canada "at this time". Thanks folks, Tom
  5. AviatorMoser, I d/l'd with torrent and it worked. Question for you OR any P3D v2.5 users: I have my "folder" named FreeMeshX - North America, and inside a folder named "Scenery\then the bgl files. In P3D v2.5 LM changed the file structure of many items - Add-On Scenery is no longer in the root of P3D folder. Where should I place the FreeMeshX.....folder....I do "know" how to add it into the scenery library.................and what is the suggested order to place it in the scenery library?? I do have both Orbx Global and Vector. Thanks so much AND a gigantic Thank You for the development of FreeMeshX.......I can only imagine the time involved. Tom
  6. AviatorMoser, NO - the two Folders are separate .7z. Can I just drag "002" into the "001" like you can with jzip. ??? Thanks so much. Tom
  7. Hello AviatorMoser, Thanks for your quick reply. I d/l'd 7-Zip - Opened 7 Zip File Manager - clicked to extract - cursored to the FreeMeshX - North America.7z.001 - The program started the extraction process, then a box below the status bar said: 1 Can not open file C:\Users\xx\Desktop\FreeMeshX - North America.7z.001' as archive. I've used WinZip, JZip, and others for years with no problem.... What am I doing wrong. Thank you, Tom
  8. Hi folks, Old fellow needs some help. but when I extract, the message box says it cannot be extracted.... What do I need to do to access these two folders. Thanks, Tom Thank you. Tom

    building pc for p3d

    After my two latest builds, Z97 & an X79 (and YES, they will overclock themselves with the AI Suite) - I would recommend the Corsair H-100 / or H-105 liquid coolers......... They are working great, good price, and both of my recent pc's are oc'd to 4.8 and are fine with temps. Good Luck

    My Traffic V6 not loading in P3D

    You add it "manually" in the P3D, opened program. From there you click on add, then click browse - to (example of where you have MT 6.0 installed) ex: browse to C:\MyTrafficProfessional\MyTraffic and click ok........and name it My Traffic IF it asks you for a "name of scenery"............... You may be confusing this with adding the #9 Line in the scenery.cfg.. Good luck..........I've had it working great as long as P3d has been out.

    The ATC and Kneeboard windows in P3D

    "I guess it's the "new and improved" version." "ME" thinks NOT....

    The ATC and Kneeboard windows in P3D

    I've complained about this since v1.4 - and it hasn't changed. I've not seen anything discussing this in quite a while, so it's like it's here to stay. I searched and searched for a way to make it transparent to no avail. I am sure the lack of transparency aggravates a lot of the simmers of P3D. T

    Update Cost?

    In all probability, when there's a completely new upgrade, yes, we'll have to pay for it...as in v 1.4 to 2.0 - but that may be sometime.........enjoy v2.4 until a completely new version arrives, then decide if you want to upgrade or now.

    Muddy looking, textures not sharp

    Turning HDR off will lighten things up also.

    How to patch if you missed a patch earlier?

    Fresh Install / or / Patch - be sure to read the instructions IF you're going to patch - no biggie, but read them and you'll get a good patch install. The latest versions encompass the past updates, ie: v2.3 .....
