    Returning to Flight Sims. What is P3D?

    P3D is basically an improved and more stable version of FSX, so yes I would recommend it over FSX. X-Plane has also seen huge improvements over the years, but system wise I don't think you'll be able to find as good 737 as the PMDG is for it. Also one plus side is that most of FSX scenery works without issues on P3D V4, even if some developers like to charge extra for updating, but that can be avoided simply through using migration tool of some kind to use the original installer of the FSX version.

    Bye buy P3D v4 long life P3D v3...

    Most people seem to be getting at least equally good performance with P3D V4 as their did with V3, thus I see no problem there, though of course soon after release there might be some bugs left. I don't mind some old gauges not working, I'll be mostly flying just a couple of payware tubeliners anyway and I can expect most of them to be updated sooner or later. Majestic Dash 8 & FSLabs A32x and Aerosoft A330 will give me enough fun until I reach retirement in 50 years or so, and all these companies have very fair pricing policies compared to some other major players out there. What really matters to me is that most of the scenery I've purchased over the years will work with P3D V4, I have no interest whatsoever in buying all that stuff again for X plane or whatever. Only thing I've ever needed for simming is more stable FSX with no OOM problems, and this is exactly it.
  3. Big thanks to everybody for suggestions! We've decided to make Albuquerque Sunport (KABQ) as our next project, however at later stage we'll definitely consider many of the other suggestions too. We would be very happy to receive images of terminal and other buildings in KABQ and other suggested airports. Often the hardest part of creating an airport is getting enough quality imagery for detailed modeling and texturing, so if any of you have the chance to take a lot of photographs of an airport you would want created, please PM me. :smile:
  4. I'm planning to start some new airport scenery projects with a friend, but I would prefer to create scenery for ones that haven't been previously created for FSX/P3D in decent quality (so mere AFCAD's and such don't count). So I thought I could ask here for some suggestions / ideas. Are there any airports you would really want to see with no existing quality addon-scenery for them? Willing to do ones located anywhere in the world, as long as there's sufficient image data available on the internet, or from you. Thanks in advance for any suggestions! :smile:
  5. The price is completely reasonable indeed, and for those who use both FSX and P3D (like me) the total price for both versions is going to be much, much lower than with some other devs who charge you the full price twice, as if they had to model everything from the scratch for P3D which isn't the case obviously.

    FSL A320 now generally available

    Definitely going to buy this one, it has been a long time since something great like this was released. And only having to pay the price difference for P3D version is a great policy, charging twice for a product that is to a high degree identical, like some other developers do, simply isn't very fair IMO.
  7. Not sure if there's much you can do to fix that, I think that particular scenery happens to be an extremely heavy and perhaps poorly optimized one. At least that's what I remember from when I last had it installed.

    Proflight Simulator

    It's a scam, a version of free open-source flight simulator Flighgear being sold commercially by some dishonest person / persons looking to make easy money.
  9. Looks awesome! I think I will finally switch to P3D V3 when this thing comes out. Regards, Joona L
  10. Coolsky for 30 as it's much more detailed, if you want fly other models then also Sky Simulations.

    I disagree, terrorist attacks are a very much political thing. If you completely separate politics from them then what discussion can you possibly have after everybody has left their condolences? I don't really get this mindset either, people should be able to discuss even hot topics and disagree about them with each other in respectful manner. If we aren't capable of doing even that then there's not much hope for future of this specie. Well, from plenty of real world aviation forums you can also find a non-aviation forum with quite an amount of political discussion. I don't see why that couldn't be the case here too.

    I think it's pretty natural that people get desensitized to news about violent attacks in Middle East, or the classic, starving children of Africa because that stuff happens constantly, year after year. . But sure, I don't really get this "add tricolor to your profile pic" phenomenon nor did I join it myself. With same logic one could add flags of tons of other countries, like Russia which lost over 200 of its citizen as a result of bombing down Metrojet flight. Yes, and we should also stop tolerating the intolerant. Too long have European authorities turned a blind eye to hate preaching and money from certain Middle Eastern countries that support it. (TIP: They have a lot of money and Iran isn't one of them).

    Sure, but I doubt calling for determined action against ISIS and other violent, radical forms of Islam is going to offend anybody here.

    Now that also the Metrojet case has been officially confirmed as a bombing it's time for the EU and Russia to truly start co-operating in fight against ISIS and radical Islam in general. We must absolutely crush them at any cost. Thanks for sharing. Indeed the western foreign policy in Middle East has been an utter failure. Even today the US continues to support Saudi-Arabia and Qatar, two countries that have played a major part in rise of ISIS, together with GWB's decision to invade Iraq.
  15. I once removed it and if I remember right the only application that got broken as a result was some useless default movie editor of Microsoft, otherwise everything worked well. I haven't deleted it from my current FSX setup though, simply placing uiautomationcore.dll into FSX directory seems to work in this case.
