    France VFR and Orbx in P3Dv4

    This is interesting to me also, and thanks for your OP. Time ago, and after knowing FranceVFR and ORBX were not compatible, I decided to stay away from FranceVFR (I own a good amount of ORBX FTX products and all the openLC regions). Anyone knows how it works?. Cheers, Ed

    Should I get the FSLABS A320?

    Many thanks, good to know. Cheers, Ed

    Should I get the FSLABS A320?

    I don’t have it, but for sure it’s the best Airbus simulation you can have. I understand the systems are its strongest point, but wonder if regarding the exterior and VC modeling it’s also the best one around. Probably somebody could say something. Cheers, Ed

    P3D v.4.3 and new rig

    I would recommend looking for the faster CPU processor you could afford (close to 4.5 to 5.0 GHz) with no need to overclock. P3D is heavily dependent on the CPU. Your choice of graphics card looks Ok (I have a GTX 1080Ti 11 GB too). IMO overclocking in general tends to reduce you CPU life due to the extra heat. In all cases, the H110i Pro looks very convenient, as Jim explained. For the PSU, I would get the Corsair RX1000, which have some extra Watts of reserve for your future expansions and overall configuration. Remember that PSU tends also to reduce their life in operated close to their maximum ratings. In case you add a monitor look for the LG 34 in curved UWHD (ultra wide). I have a smaller one, and It was really a pitty for me not buying the bigger one. Good luck. Cheers, Ed

    Sad News......FlyBe Up For Sale

    Sad news. but this has been the case of commercial aviation companies for a long time. They need to reinvent themselves quite often, otherwise this happens and will continue to happen. Cheers, Ed
  8. For those interested, EBBR by JustSim/Digital Design is released and available at SimMarket. Cheers, Ed

    Defrag SSD

    Not recommended. They're probably advertising that, because a lot of people are moving to SSD drives and they could possibly be losing market. Cheers, Ed
  10. Hi P: I'm using the FFTF range from 0.01 to 0.33 (the default range I guess), and AGL range from 0.00 to 3,000 ft. Frames locked up to 27. If I set my frames to unlimited, I get noticeable stuttering. Very, very smooth experience. Cheers, Ed
  11. FFTF Dynamic works perfect for me. I don't have my FPS set to unlimited, since after several tests conducted on my system it was clear to me that I should locked them to 27 to reach my best ever fluid experience in P3D. Anyway I would recommend reading the FFTF Dynamic manual. Cheers, Ed

    nV 416.81

    Which simulator are you using?. Cheers, Ed

    Taxi2gate VHHH

    Hi: I think you can do it. Simply point to your main P3Dv4 folder when asked browsing to that directory. The scenery should be installed into the SimMarket folder (if you don't have it already there it will be created by the installer, inside the main P3Dv4 directory). To finish, you'll have to manually add your new scenery into your existing scenery.cfg, or into your addons catalog in case you prefer to use the addons-xml method. Hope this helps. Cheers, Ed
  14. Hi: I have the Immersion Packages for the Q400, B777, B717 and the A320 (although the A320 is not installed in my sim yet). After I select one of the first three planes in my simulator (P3Dv4.3) the Immersion Manager (IM) inside the sim tells me with a grey screen that I should load a supported aircraft in the simulator, when in fact there's one of them loaded up in the sim, and the IM is "Disconnected". I had a first time successful installation of the Immersion Packages and never had this before. By the way, all the Immersion Packages correctly show in VFX Central. What should I do now?. Thanks, Ed
  15. Ok. Understood. The B777 settings should also be adjusted in VFXCentral?. Cheers, Ed

    Nail in coffin AFS2...?

    Let me clarify for you that this survey is sponsored not only by Navigraph, but also by other developers or sim companies, according to the list below: Aerofly FS 2 Alabeo Avitab CaptainSim Carenado Flight1 FlightSim FSExpo HiFiSimTech IVAO JonFly Just Flight Laminar Research MilViz ORBX QualityWings SimBrief SimFlight VATSIM And yes, to my surprise IPACS (Aerofly FS 2) is also sponsoring the survey. Cheers, Ed

    Nail in coffin AFS2...?

    I think they're so disconnected, that maybe that idea will never cross their minds. Cheers, Ed

    Nail in coffin AFS2...?

    There's a very extensive poll or survey going on (Navigraph, Carenado, etc., are sponsoring it) until Nov. 25 (date from memory). According to the survey, the results will be public by Dec. 17, 2018 and by then we will surely know more about the current market share of those simulators. Cheers, Ed

    Nail in coffin AFS2...?

    Thanks for posting those figures, very informative. Quite a low amount of users in average and in peak with no substantial change over time. At that rythm, one should forget about any further development for AFS2 just because it will be no funding, and that's real numbers. An old chinese proverb: a picture is worth a thousand words. Cheers, Ed

    Nail in coffin AFS2...?

    Incomplete SDK and complicated path to develop aircraft addons, that's why. The worst thing is that it's mostly clear that IPACS has no plans to change that. Cheers, Ed

    Nail in coffin AFS2...?

    We all know that already, it has been an endless discussion, just to realize that we end up in the same place. My only suggestion would be to move on and enjoying flying, either with P3Dv4 or XP 11. I'm now planning to install XP 11 on my new gaming laptop by March next year, when my brand new gaming laptop will arrive. In the meantime and afterwards, I'll continue enjoying P3Dv4 (or v5?, who knows?) very much and every complex addon that people are releasing for it. I don't bother by AFS2 anymore. If IPACS comes with some new and nice stuff, even better, if not, bad for them. And, btw, there's a nice (and long, with 77 questions or so) survey online going on, sponsored by some developers (IPACS amongst them). I filled out mine this morning and will be obvious to IPACS that they're far away from being a preferred simulator platform. Cheers, Ed

    Downloading x Plane 11

    I’ll try XPlane for the first time after I get my new gaming laptop by March next year. I’m planning to get it from Steam. I find it very convenient to get it from there. Have you considered that way?. Cheers, Ed
  23. Newegg and Amazon are very good choices. I have very good experiences with the two of them. Unfortunately I don't think there's any MicroCenter store in FL. Cheers, Ed

    Any news on Vertx DA62

    Hi Jay: And I can add a practice that at least one developer I remember employed back at the end of 2016, by releasing a product saying it was almost finished, at full price (around 60 bucks). One year and a half later, a stable version was finally released after a long optional beta testing period. I think the flightsim community should ban that way of doing "business". Cheers, Ed

    Any news on Vertx DA62

    It surprises me very much, too. And as you say, it seems the guy is not urged to make any update news, and this can tell us that the "promissed" three weeks is a thing of the past and now nobody has a clue on how well or bad this aircraft is being developed, if that's still the case. Cheers, Ed
