    How to remove ai_global_ship_ship_traffic

    Take a look at the installed files and batch delete them or search them up one by one if you don’t know how to work with batch commands..

    Go-around procedure on VATSIM

    Well most have been said we use the real world published procedures which is public available on aim.naviair.dk you are always welcome to request runway heading or vectoring by the controller. In normal circumstances on VATSIM in ekdk fir you would automatically get vectoring for a new approach after you have entered the procedure. All the best
  4. Good evening, I received my oculus rift headset today, and I thought I would give some first impressions/reactions. I use P3D v4 exclusively, so leave if you wanna hear about another sim. First some background. I have been flightsimming on and off for I dont know 10-15 years now. In the last 5-6 years I have mainly been interested in study sims and i almost exclusively fly the 737NGX (Yes X for pmdg version) After having flown a few home cockpits an desktop two monitor setup just couldn't cut it anymore.. I had to get something else. Build my own sim? Well yes - ideally but I simply couldn't decide on A320 or 737.. (I know I mainly fly the NG so the choice should be easy right? Sure (waves at the 737 max)). So I thought to myself VR would maybe be the option for me, and I read this forum for 1-2 years I think. But now I saw the price on the rift was getting so low, so I could just jump into it. Today it arrived, and I plugged it in, set it up.. And then googled a bit for how to get it to function in p3d.. Well was pretty simple, just had to finish the oculus setup.. 😐 So I fired up the NGX at my local airport and fired up VR.. WOW! I was there... Literally.. Just like the cockpits i visited, just like the home cockpits i flown. Once and again I got to appreciate the work PMDG had done. Every damm little detail really pops-up into your eyes.. The size of everything correctly scaled.. Move a bit forward and get closer.. Look over left shoulder see the wing tip and the L1 door open.. I was just sitting the with my mouth open lol. Perfomance was ofc my first concern.. But having the 1080ti and 8700k I for one could not put any remark on performance. It was even smoother than my usual setup I think. I read a lot about the screen door effect, and it almost made me cancel my order.. But its not that bad. However.. cause there is an however. When you look out of the window.. Dont expect to see anything you can make out.. Its like being reborn in a world where you need glasses, and dont have em.. And you sweat.. lol Its gonna be all instrument flying from now lol. (I use ASW off and 1,5 in oculus tray tool, and i set 1.5 pixel .. bla bla in debugger tool). But the coolness of being there just outweighs this and my flight ti gatwick at night with atc and loads of traffic was priceless. After having flown the NG I thought I would check out the 787.. Me, having flown it as a passenger but not having to get up there had really no idea of the cockpit. But I can say it feels a hell lot less crammed than the 737 NG cockpit. The shear size was just amazing. So to sum things up a bit.. If you are thinking of taking the plunge to VR.. Dont expect it to be visual heaven outside of the airplane. You could prob. remove most terrain settings lol.. But the cockpit.. All though also a bit blurry is just worth every hard earned buck/euro or whatever you receive *MIC DROP*
  5. Thanks Rob. Loud and clear

    Is it worth buy FSLabs a320

    Well the Airbus FD is is said to be more quieter (compared to Boeing 737/747) so no headset while cruising.. And an nice table to eat and work on
  7. Honestly your comment really puzzles me. being an controller on vatsim I surely cannot seem to recon ‘bad’ atc. There is people spending their time voluntarily updating and maintaining the sectors up to date, training new guys and organizing major events. Living close to the local hub, and having an atc scanner I can assure you the controlling you get visiting the FIR, surely is as real as it gets procedurewise... We regularly speak and get information from local real world controllers who regularly fly in... Surely it’s easy to sit on the outside and bash and entire network (I’m sure you meet bad atc somewhere) but saying vatsim is bad in general is just wrong. Thinking on all the people who spend so much effort in keeping the wheels running I honestly think you should be ashamed of such comment We continue to grow on traffic, that is what the stats say. Last event had over 600 movements. There is always room for improvement, but I invite you all to participate and I promise you new traffic will get patient controlling in my local airspace.
  8. Hi can you post your settings? First thing that comes to mind is weather mode. What is current metar? what is your max visibility setting?
  9. Hi Adam. yes on paper you probably will.. in practice probably not so much.. but the 980 is still an good card, so maybe wait a generation or two..
  10. On my system (8700k@5.0+1080Ti)FSL 320 is smoother with HT on... dont forget that p3d may be getting upgrades which utilize more threads in the future.. so it’s not black/white

    Airline assumed temperature v derated thrust takeoff usage

    Yes, seems to be correct until few years ago I saw some video somewhere that they started opting for it on new 777 (I think I saw it back in 16) cause maintenance discovered that high soaring sand particles were increasing wear and required more maintenances which then made the idea of not having de-rate options kinda unnecessary..

    P3DV4 QualityWings 787 Bugs

    Ok might update then but I do see the descend issue on 4.2 streams so can you check it

    P3DV4 QualityWings 787 Bugs

    Im not sure.. I usually have the habit from the 777 but I will double check next time. Also engine doesnt say running in the EICAS before moving throttles beyond the mark on the EICAS. (62% n2)

    P3DV4 QualityWings 787 Bugs

    I have some issues 787-9 doesn’t recognize flap positions unique to the 787-9. Only shows green when in 5 and 15. Flap handle doesn’t move beyond 18 in the Vc but the indication on eicas updates, but stays violet and not green. Unsure if this is unique to the dash 9. - I cannot confirm this issue in any steam.. So might be isolated to my system somehow.. im on p3d v 4.1 When starting descent the calculated path is not steep enough for the fma(?) indication of the throttle to show idle. (Autothrottle doesnt command idle thrust) - seems to be same issue on a few 4.1 videos. putting it in fl ch gives expected behaviour (steeper path THR idle) in both the dash 8 and 9. setting cold and dark still haves irs aligned. Setting the mode selector to on and off again corrects this. The position of throttle varies without my throttle physically moving (might be related to hardware) And why do you have to costumize your setup every flight. Disabling qwcas etc, 40 callout irs align times anyone seeing any of the above? or is it related to 4.1 no I didn’t rtfm. Having flown many Boeing’s.. sorry if it’s in there. and despite the above I still like it..

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    More like buying a simulation of a new car, from a small dedicated team who are all fans of cars, and who has spent time studying the “some specific part of the body” out of themselves at how the car works only to run into problems overcoming the issues with a platform decades old. That being said, showstopper bugs that have been identified should be worked on fixing. Atleast you know that they exist.
