  1. I use TOPCAT to load the payload, but fuel is always managed internally with PMDG.
  2. I've had this issue with both of the MD-11 and the 747v3 lately. I'm not sure why but the gross weight keeps changing back and forth between two different weight levels. Its would you would expect if you added more fuel midflight and kept getting inconsistent fuel predictions in the FMC, except I'm not changing any weight levels once I load the panel state. This happened right when I landed the MD-11. I got the green "ZFWCG out of range" message at the top. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
  3. For some reason the cg and zfw keep fluctuating between two different weights. I've tried reinstalling the PMDG 747V3 and loading from different panel states. No matter what weight I put in, it keeps changing and the cg will go negative. Any help is appreciated thanks! Also the fuel shown in FSX is 404000 lbs which is definitely over the max fuel level.
  4. wrong sub forum please delete this post

  6. http://simonblakesley.photoshelter.com/image/I0000paN6pvNzoKc Here is another picture, the wingtip light is yellow and does not appear to have a newer white LED appearance. Its not a huge deal, but I was just curious as to why the one in the NGX looks different.
  7. I noticed on the NGX the aft wingtip lights are a light blueish color, but the 737 I flew on today has a yellowish light on the wingtip like the picture. Perhaps I was on an older 737-700 like this?
  8. Hi I have the updated 1704 navigraph cycle installed but when I am trying to build a route it keeps defaulting to a VOR that is 5000nm away. The VOR in question is Chicago-Rockford (RFD). I was trying to program a short route between KRFD-PIA. It does not give me an option to select the correct VOR.
  9. I was actually able to solve the issue for the most part by making finite changes using the "F2" and "F3" keys. That allows for more precise changes in N1. It is not a perfect solution, but it works for the most part. Not sure how they do it in the real world though. But thank you for your help.
  10. Ok thanks. Is there a better way to manage speed then? I feel like the aircraft is really sensitive to airspeed changes when it is managed manually. Unless its just my joystick that is causing the issue.
  11. I am not quite sure how FLC mode is supposed to work. I do understand it is not the same as an auto-throttle, but I have been having issues with the plane pitching way up or down when it is enabled in cruise. Is this a bug or am I not using it correctly? I also own the Embraer Phenom 300 from Carenado and I do not have the same issues with that aircraft. The aircraft also fails to hold altitude with FLC mode on.
  12. 1.) Is it possible to merge the posky CRJ2 (as well as the CRJ9) with the default CRJ7 Virtual Cockpit? 2.) Is anyone aware of an updated US Airways Express livery for the CRJ2? The only Posky one that I've found available is the old America West livery.
  13. Is there a way to have up-to-date SIDS/STARS in the fsx gps? I have been using V-Route and simroutes to generate real world routes, but even with the most up to date airac cycle, some of the SIDS/STARS are missing. For Example: KPHX- CHILY4 DEP is available in V-Route, but not the similar alternative, JUDTH3.
  14. Well I was finally able to successfully run FSInn and FSX in fullscreen...with one major drawback...I am SOMETIMES able to minimize fsx to view other windows (acars, ASE, etc). but it seems after a few trys FSX will no longer restore correctly. I hear the sim running and as you can see in the screenshot FSINN is running. but if I try and click to restore it...CTD and Fatal Error.
  15. This happened twice today..almost at the same location..right when I cross the Imperial (IPL) VOR..CTD. I fly online with Squawkbox and the PMDG NGX if that helps..
