    Vendors no longer supporting FSX

    Add Captain Sim to the list.
  2. I like flying to the New York/Newark area but the frames are just so awful for me, I get around 10-15 in the NGX. I'm using FSX:SE and a lot of my fsx.cfg is already tweaked. At New York the only addons that effect the area are MyTraffic X, FTX Global, and ActiveSky Next. The rest of my addons are either aircraft or other airports (Buffalo, Paro, Dubai, St. Maarten, etc.) Also, I kind of like my settings how they are right now. Would getting an addon like New York City X increase my frames? What other solutions are there? Here are my computer specs: Motherboard: ASUS Z-170 AURA CPU: Intel Core-i7 6700K (overclocked @ 4.639GHz) GPU: Gigabyte GeForce NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 RAM: x4 Corsair 8GB DDR4 (32GB DDR4 RAM) Cooling: Kraken x41 Water Cooling System Storage: 1TB Hard Disk Drive Now here are my scenery and traffic settings: Terrain and water Level of detail radius: Large Mesh Complexity: 75 Mesh Resolution: 38 m Texture Resolution: 1 m Water Effects: Max 2.x Land Detail Textures: ☑ (Checked) Scenery Objects Scenery Complexity: Very Dense Autogen Density: Very Dense Ground Scenery Shadows: 𝥷 (Unchecked) Special Effects Detail: High Aviation Traffic Airline Traffic Density: 22% General Aviation Traffic Density: 28% Airport Vehicle Density: Low Land and Sea Traffic Road Vehicles: 80% Ships and Ferries: 100% Leisure Boats: 61%

    REX Major announcement

    Perfect for Airhauler 2 where I'm constantly doing cargo flights to many different default airports.

    Cessna 441 Autopilot tutorial?

    Nevermind. I got it figured out. Have to use the pitch wheel on the center console.
  5. I watched the 441 videos and they are fantastic. I was unable to locate the takeoff/climb or the landing videos on the website or the youtube channel. Are they available? Or maybe just an autopilot tutorial even if only text. I'm having a little difficulty understanding how to use altitude capture properly. Often it just keeps climbing past what I have set the alerter to. Or I set a lower altitude and nothing happens. I know that it's pilot error. Can anyone explain the proper way to manage altitude changes with the AP? Thanks, Craig

    How short can a 777 land?

    My son just landed an empty 777F at 7N1 and used less than half of the 3269 ft runway. Is this realistic? If you want to try it you'll have to get the freeware 7N1 by Jim Cook from the library. Here's a picture of it, he touched down right at the beginning of the threshold. http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=9vglsy&s=9#.V8eb7a0S2M8
  7. My JS4100 isn't working correctly with my FSX installation. Whenever I load the JS4100 up (after being in a cold and dark C172) the battery switches are on but all the screens are black and if I connect a GPU to the aircraft and turn on the GPU it still gives me no power. The throttles also don't move in the VC even if I move the throttles back and forth, and it is not a controller issue since the tool tip will display the throttle percentage moving up and down. Does anyone know why, or what is going on here?

    Boise Airport Poll

    I would be interested. With Airhauler 2 coming in a few months, I like airports that help fill in the map and create interesting locales for bases.

    Disappointing!

    Well it's obvious to me (after reading this thread) - wait for a week's worth of responses to the SP before deciding whether to buy this plane. As for the title of the thread, at least we got a couple of zingers out of it: Bert should have a paypal icon so the developers (and us) can click it and donate to his beer fund.

    Why GTA V is so much more than a game about crime!

    Long-term study finds zero link between violence in video games and real life. http://www.sciencealert.com/definitive-study-finds-zero-link-found-between-video-game-and-youth-violence
  12. Works well on my FSX-SE. I have a computer using the steam version only and it installed fine when I told it where to install it. (C:\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX)

    What happened to the Hawker?

    Great point.
