    Without trying to sound cliché, I love airplanes. A lot.

  1. +1 for the splits (visual or otherwise). Based at YVR and 90% of the NG's we see are equipped with them now. Understand the 74 is the priority, and there's probably a ton else going on, but I'd be happy to pay for even a visual update. Just my two cents.
  2. Cathay Pacific 777-300ER = CI 90
  3. Hey Dave, that's actually a good point. I'll try and find the file and see what I can do with it. Thanks! In the meanwhile, this is a picture in case it makes it any clearer...
  4. Update : turns out it does this with a couple of other suspension bridges around the scenery too. Quite bizarre...
  5. Hey simmers! Quick question apropos the late John Patch's wonderful VanPlus v3 scenery, specifically within Prepar3D v3. For any of you who know the scenery, I've noticed a heavy shimmering on the Alex Fraser Bridge (about ten miles east of YVR), which does not diminish with distance. For example, I can be lining up at YVR and still see it well off in the distance, the only scenery object present with the distance, and incredibly bright and shimmering. I have FTX PNW installed, along with its config option in the options menu of VanPlus. Having come at a loss to find any active forums for the scenery, I thought I'd ask here. Thanks for any and all help! Derek
  6. +2 - I'd love to see Scimitars for the NGX , even if it is a paid, solely visual upgrade.
  7. Simmers, I'm having an issue in the sim, and I've been trying to mess around with my settings to fix it to no avail. The issue is in the ground LOD, wherein anything more than 50 feet in front of the aircraft becomes super blocky and blurry. The attached photo is from FlightBeam KSFO, though I have experienced the same issue at other airports. As for settings, I've basically tried with everything on max, and nothing is fixed (full texture, mesh, tesselation, LOD, MSAA, FXAA, and texture filtering) to no avail. The texture LOD still remains abysmal. Any suggestions on settings to play around with that might fix this issue? Thanks!!
  8. Sorry to dig up this old topic, but is there any progress on the disappearing shadows? Shadows were flickering on and off left right and center in V3, especially with TrackIR. Any settings to possibly change with REX4, my GPU or Prepar3D?
  9. Any development on this? Still that GSX line when using de-ice for me in P3D v3, and nothing on it in the forums that I could find. Sorry to dig up this old topic
  10. Simmers, Having recently purchased (and fallen in love with) the NGX: Reboot after owning the legacy version for years, there were a few things I was wondering with regards to the 777. Specifically, if any of the new features rolled out in Reboot could be implemented in a future FS2Crew 777 update. Now, as obviously neither a real-world 737ng nor 777 pilot, I do not know the intricacies of CRM with regards to the 777, and these calls could indeed only be present in the 737, and not part of 777 SOP, though I imagine at least some of these are used by 777 carriers. These calls really improve the workload, flexibility of operation, and crew dynamic in the NGX, and I feel could do similar with the 777. These features/calls include: FMC-style configuration More advanced briefings (windshear/bird concerns, ETOPS, forced return, self-tracking, crew change, first leg, etc...) Fuel checks call from FO "cleared to close long taxi/short taxi" "Confirm execute" when programming the FMC "Clear left/clear on the left" when crossing a runway or entering the runway for departure Flight controls check responses (this may be a 737-specific item, I wasn't sure) Lack of gear up confirmation until 400' "Bug up" command "Set VREF plus 5" command "Cleared to release the cabin/cabin crew?" during climb "You have control" before descent preparation There are a few other things too though I believe those are company-specific. I only mention these because I've been told no 777:Reboot is in the works considering its newness, though with all the fantastic technological developments in the NGX department, I was wondering if any of that could be ported over into the triple. Thanks! Derek
  11. Thanks everyone! Really good to know!!
  12. Good to know - thanks! Thanks Dave! Good to know - I'll look into that.
  13. Know I'm kind of digging up this thread, but I was wondering if there was any way to adjust the brightness of dawn or dusk specifically? I'm at a point where I'm happy with my night and day settings via tonemap, but my dawns are way, way too bright, with incredibly bright stars and cockpit displays. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to rectify this?
