  1. A quick and simple Google for "sim skunk works" will give you the answer: www.simskunkworks.it
  2. The default folder for special effects content is \Effects and it should have only one sub folder for effects textures: \Effects\texture. P3D also allows to have more effects folders which are declared in add-on.xml files or in the %PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\effects.cfg file.
  3. This week, Microsoft decided to update my PC from Windows 10 1909 to 20H2 and guess what, I got the old Geforce DCH 457.51 driver (from Dec 2020)... Everything works fine so I leave things as they are for now.
  4. I tried these lines in P3Dv5.1, it does not work for me.
  5. I disabled EA, HDR Lighting, and Dynamic Reflections and I was surprised how much better the colors look. Never went back to the default settings. Henk.
  6. The Goose: The Novawing24 guy talks about this in the 20 Dec Novawrap youtube video and today several Sim Outhouse members found out the hard way the extended edition does not work on other P3D licences.
  7. Not purchased yet but tempted to go for the standard edition. The extended edition is not an option for me as it requires a P3Dv4.5 / v5.1 Professional Plus license (!)
  8. Nothing to be worried about, to disable it go to Options > Application > Enable Content Error Reporting.
  9. If you have a NVidia GPU and use a custom Prepar3d NVidia Profile Inspector profile then delete it - it solved the black preview window issue for me.
  10. You can add a [GYRO_SOUND] section to your sound.cfg file like this example: [GYRO_SOUND] filename=TSS-Cockpitenv flags=0 viewpoint=1 minimum_volume=8650 maximum_volume=9582 There is no stock avionics WAV file so you need to find a suitable one yourself.
  11. I changed my modded Standard.xml file properties - attributes to "Read-Only", works perfect.
  12. According to his FB page, Farnborough is still on the radar, quote: "I will be releasing a number of airplanes and sceneries this year, and here is the first time that I’ve publicly outlined the road map for what I very much hope will become a popular line of products for flight simulation; February 2020: Boeing F/A-18E, F & G Super Hornets for FSX, P3D, and X-Plane 11. May 2020: Boeing F-15C, E and I “Ra’am” Eagles package for FSX, P3D and X-Plane 11. July 2020: Concorde for FSX, P3D and X-Plane 11. To be confirmed - September: Grumman F-14A and D Tomcats for P3D, and X-Plane 11. Date to be determined: Farnborough Airport for FSX, P3D, X-Plane 11 Date to be determined: Blackbushe Airport for FSX, P3D, X-Plane 11"
  13. I wanted to move the Global Base files to an external library but guess what the manual says: "Unfortunately, due to technical limitations, Orbx Global Base Pack can’t be migrated into alibrary." I guess this means that after installing a P3D content version update, your Global Base files will be overwritten just like in the old days.
  14. I agree content error checking is a valuable tool but I only enable it for testing purposes. For normal flights I turn it off because in my experience it has a significant performance impact.
