  1. Thanks!. I´ll just be waiting for your new release. In the meantime I´ll un-check the water surface tweak once I move to P3Dv4.4 and not do anything else. Cheers, Ed

    PBR VC MadDogX First Look

    Probably there´s no contradiction, but the way LSH developed their product. Seems to me that since PBR is just "beginning" the developers would still have to fine tune the process, my guess, but LSH have made it very clear in their forums. I don´t have P3Dv4.4 installed yet, so I couldn´t say. Cheers, Ed

    Addon Organizer support for native Autogen

    Yes, I agree. Probably in the add-on or third-party scenery directory created outside the main P3D directory. As I remember, the P3D autogen native support was only included in the changelog when LM released v4.4. Cheers, Ed
  5. Hi Oliver: As you know, with P3Dv4.4 you'll be able to have native support for merging autogen definitions from different developers. As I undertand it implies the creation of a xml file telling P3D the location of the different definitions. I'm pretty sure you know already about this. Do you have any plans in mind to include or develop support for this with the Addon Organizer or a similar tool?. Cheers, Ed

    Asian or Indian Airports.

    This one is really one of the best, an intriguing airport, with not an easy approach. And Airbuses land there in real life, but only with specially trained pilots. Cheers, Ed

    PBR VC MadDogX First Look

    That's an interesting question, but that way you can disable both external and internal PBR textures (separatedly I suppose, since the new VC PBR textures are about to be released probably this week, so I cannot tell for sure). Take a look in MaddogX website, but they don't reveal how they do it. What they've said is that the performance impact is minimal, or performance is even better compared to normal textures. Cheers, Ed

    Addon Organizer support for native Autogen

    Hi Oliver: Yes, in that case I think you can drop your specific autogen descriptions folder from any developer inside the main P3D folder, and "tell" P3D where to locate them by creating an addon-xml file (using your tool of course) pointing to that specific folder. Thus, if the native P3D support works as intended, it should merge these autogen definitions with the P3D default and voila!. An example of this (as taken from FSDevelopers.com) follows: <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>Autogen Descriptions from Ed</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>Files Common to all Ed Products</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Autogen</Category> <Path>Ed Autogen\Autogen</Path> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> Where Ed Autogen is a folder inside the main P3D directory, containing an Autogen folder and inside the respective autogen descriptions. So, what do you think?. I haven't tried this yet, since I'm still with P3Dv4.3, but planning to do my upgrade of Client and Content to v4.4 this week. Cheers, Ed

    PBR VC MadDogX First Look

    In the MaddogX you still have an option in the LoadManager to enable or disable the PBR textures. But really, I see no reason to disable those nice looking and almost real textures!. Cheers, Ed

    Asian or Indian Airports.

    There are very good airports for Thailand, Phuket amongst them. Cheers, Ed

    City Scene Orlando (ORBX) Released !

    It´s most probably the same case that with TrueEarth Netherlands. I bought it TE Netherlands for AFS2 and the included airports were so bad that I´ve never used that scenery again. I don´t even bought it for P3D. IMHO the included airports in this type of products should be substantially better than the defaults, surely not as detailed as a stand-alone airport, but in all case, a lot better than the current offering. Cheers, Ed

    City Scene Orlando (ORBX) Released !

    Could you pls comment on your FPS with your normal P3D settings?. Thanks. Cheers, Ed
  13. Hi: Probably this topic has been discussed before, but just want to get some ideas about the main advantages and disadvantages of using 4xSSAA or even 8xSSAA vs 2xSSAA, regarding sharpness, FPS and overall experience in P3Dv4.4-v4.3?. Anticipated thanks. Cheers, Ed

    Maddog sounds

    Not really, something happened I had only the OP loaded up. I suspect something related to my internet connection. But anyway, we try to help. Cheers, Ed

    Maddog sounds

    This is very good. It´s payware and available at SimMarket, from Turbine Sounds Studios (TSS). https://secure.simmarket.com/turbine-sound-studios-md-8x-jt8d-pilot-edition-soundpack-fsx-p3d.phtml At the MaddogX forums there´s information on how to merge this package with the original one from LSH: Cheers, Ed
  16. As long as you don´t travel as often as I do, desktop all the way up for me too. Cheers, Ed

    Flightbeam/Dreamflight SEQM Quito announced

    Interesting airport and really new, as it was build only three or four years ago, as I remember. They closed down the old and dangerous SEQU which was located inside the city of Quito. Cheers, Ed
  18. Hi Rick: Before installing the MSI GTX1080Ti I had the GTX980 also from MSI and it worked perfectly well for almost three years. I just changed my GPU looking for more frames and fluidity. And yes, it´s just a GPU endorsement. I wish I could recommend also their gaming laptops, but I can not. Cheers, Ed
  19. It’s quite good. I have one installed after I bought it trough Amazon USA more than one year ago and so far it’s very reliable. What I would never recommend is to buy MSI laptops. Very, very bad experience with one that died off recently after suffering from different issues (SSD failure, scratched surface on several keys of the keyboard, and lately a BIOS failure). Good luck anyway! Cheers, Ed
  20. So, finally, will the B747 QOTSII will be made compatible with P3Dv4.0-4.3 yes or no?. Cheers, Ed
  21. To use the MaddogX with PBR you should also update your Content portion of P3D, not only the Client. Look for guidance at the Maddog forums. Cheers, Ed
  22. Undoubtedly, a very good buy!. On my shopping list already. Cheers, Ed
  23. Hopefully that´s the case and we´ll still have PTA to play with. Cheers, Ed

    Be careful and don´t try to re-install your Windows 10 too! 😂 Cheers, Ed

    P3D folder opens when starting P3D

    If you have your shortcut directly pointing to your prepar3D.exe file, it should never open your main P3D folder. Cheers, Ed
