  1. Myself, other than an update/redux of the very awesome MD-11. I would like to see PMDG do a Boeing 767. It is one of my favorites. I have the one from BrandX, but it's a bit quirky sometimes. Considered buying the Level-D, but I am spoiled rotten by PMDG and BrandX(all those 3D knobs and switches...)...and NO freighter model...767 PLEASE!!!
  2. I use FlightAware to select an aircraft/airline/Dep and Arr...Then SimBrief to make up the actual package. I download the FMS data for both PMDG and AS2016, or just the FSX/P3D flight plan for others. The browse by operator feature at FA is so cool!!! I have been using SimBrief for several years now. It's an awesome service, and yes, it's FREE!!!
  3. ...Enough already!!! :P I just got done following UPS 64. First leg, SDF to ANC. Every time I get in the cockpit, I'm amazed...It is such a work of art! I have even switched to my own version of a short turnaround panel state every time it loads, so I can align the IRS and preflight the cockpit..Second leg was from ANC to RSK. Even though it was just an hour and a half tech stop, and even though it's been out for months now...When I got back in, I was itching to get going! -And when it loads on one of the planes I put the brown seats mod in, I smile. So many hours in the FSX QOTS. Just...THANKS! You really, really hit it out of the park! I can't wait 'til I can get the money up for the P3Dv4 version!
  4. You might want to check the tilt of the antenna. IIRR, it defautts to -2 degrees. If you're sitting on the ground, the radar can't see anything...
  5. HA HA HA!!! Funny Chock!!!
  6. I got the VC error too. Typed in VC Runtimes in google, took me right to the page. Downloaded the 2015 x86 version, and it worked. Thanks guys! Now, for MORE testing....
  7. Looks great! Another to add to my growing fleet! BTW, Your paints are awesome!!!
  8. ...And taking it a little further...It wouldn't be much of an "F" without the SCD now would it? VERY labor intensive to load that one. Thanks, I was just wondering if there was a clue hidden to say EXACTLY what kind of equipment it had... Was looking at pictures at for some project ideas...
  9. Ahh, OK...Got it...Customer codes..ugh...So, other than seeing that it has PW or GE's, and counting antennae...And BTW, I also got BDSF. Which is a Bedek converted freighter. They're a company in Israel that converts Pax into freighters. From what I can tell, there's an extra window on the lower level of these in front of the regular door window...Thanks!
  10. While doing research, I came across a few things that have me intensely curious. Most of Atlas Airs' fleet is designated( at least, as far as is concerned...) 747-47UF/SCD...Most of UPS's fleet is 747-44AF/SCD. Now, the SCD probably stands for Side Cargo Door, or something of that nature... but...There's a -4HAF/ER/SCD, -4J6M, -4R7F/SCD...I'm guessing it has to do with the type of engines installed, or special equipment...Can someone enlighten me? THANKS!!!
  11. Just got done w/ ANC to MIA. Still trying to get used to these new Thrustmaster TRF rudder pedals. I like applying the brakes smoothly now, but still trying to get the hang of this steering w/your feet...thing... Interesting landing...Winds were 080@ 18kts. Not my prettiest, but I didn't bend her!
  12. ...By request...
  13. WoW! has it been a month already??? I'm with you...This Plane...It's...a work of art! I'm like a giddy schoolgirl every time I'm in the cockpit! So many details...Alas, A lot of my time has been taken up putting things in order on my new system. But I have taken some time off within the next few days...I will fly the skirt off this queen for sure! How about some shots of my own Hmmm?
  14. I recently just did the same thing, kept my HDD w/ a relatively clean install of Windows 10. Everything needed reactivation...
  15. ...cause I can't get rid of this smile on my face... Old system: Intel i5 2400, ASUS P8Z68-Gen2 MB, 16GB RAM(4x4), EVGA GTX660 Video card, WD 1TB 10,000RPM HDD. NEW System: Intel i7 7700K, ASUS TUF Z270 MarkII MB, 16GB Kingston Fury DDR4 RAM (2x8). EVGA GTX1060 w/6GB GDDR5, Same HDD. The old system was about near the end of what it could do as far as FSX was concerned. It would stutter, it would stop, but still at moderate settings would do well. Add PMDG, or Captain Sim products, and it would start to protest. Once airborne, everything would be OK, until I came in to land. Payware airports were a little dicey, but most times, it would be alright. The new Queen ran well on it too but...well... The NEW system...WOW!!! It's handling everything! I have even bumped up the sliders a bit, and added a few more layers of clouds too. It will stutter a bit, but if you blink, you'll miss it. -And so far, it hasn't stopped once! Still testing, but... I flew the PMDG MD11 from KSDF( Blue Print ) to KPHL( SunSkyJet) the other day. This would give my old system fits the closer I got to the East Coast. But the new system handled it with ease! Even did a manual cross wind landing( winds 300@20 )! It wasn't my prettiest, but I was still grinning ear to ear! Thanks to the whole PMDG Team! It looks like I will finally be able to fully enjoy your great products!
