  1. Did a couple flights with the new FMS. Pretty cool bit of kit. Few questions. Does the FMS not load in missed approach procedures or is that a planned feature not yet implemented? Also how does the VNAV page work? It seems to bug out for me and there is no documentation on it. Additionally is there a way to "activate approach" or do an extended centerline to intercept the final approach course? I remember there was a way to do it in the UNS implemented in the Q400 but I'm not sure its in this one. Thanks!
  2. Any update on when we can use Navigraph to update the database?
  3. I'm sure hoping its soon. I just got a hold of a full binder of Lear 35/36 training/flight manuals and can't wait to put them to use. No need for the lacking Simbrief profile anymore 🙂
  4. Awesome. This aircraft is evolving into the best bizjet we have in P3D!
  5. That looks incredible! Cannot wait to see it in our sim!
  6. I'd be surprised if they still were given their mind boggling business decisions.
  7. I find for me that loading in with the default f35, switching to the lear (or falcon) and selecting "Ready to Start" from the popup seems to get the lights to work every time for me. Even loading from the default f35 sometimes the lear/falcon doesn't load in 100% every time and the Ready to start state fixes that.
  8. No worries, thanks! The Falcon is a wonderful addon and I'm so thankful you guys are on top of things and always improving! Edit: Seems to be working now!
  9. Interesting, I've just downloaded it again and opened the cab file and still no annunciator xml. Here is a screenshot: https://imgur.com/4JxHfi6 I'll also give loading default aircraft a go.
  10. Also I don't know if it helps, but sometimes the falcon loads in halfway between cold and dark and a startup state. Sometimes the attitude indicator all the battery, fuel, and engine switches load in turned on, sometimes they don't.
  11. I have been unable to get this working trying everything in this thread. I'm not super knowledgeable on development for P3D, but it doesn't appear that there is any ANNUNCIATOR xml files in the Falcon_50 cab file which I assume that line in the panel.cfg is looking for.
  12. From what it seems, minimal work is required to make current products compatible, especially for aircraft. I can see scenery being a bit more of a challenge. I'm sure PMDG will find a way to charge us more money though.
  13. Who cares. It doesn't matter. Just enjoy your hobby. It's not that hard.
  14. Yeah I personally find the lighting a bit too bright. I landed in PHX the other night and could not see the runway other than the edge lighting as everything was just washed out white. I don't know if its possible to do dynamic lighting that is present in the large airliners in P3Dv4, because that would be the most ideal, IMO.
  15. That would be incredible, especially with an updatable database from Navigraph or something. Then we can truly do transatlantic flights on online networks! A bizjet with an FMS is all I ever wanted in P3D
  16. Well that's Carenado for you. IMO they should stick to single engine props because they can't do anything realistic beyond that. All of their jets are mostly a default aircraft dressed up in fancy clothes. If you want a Falcon that actually functions, I would recommend the Flysimware Falcon. Doesn't look perfect but it flies like a dream.
  17. Any preview/screenshots of the updated interior textures and such? I've had my eye on this bird for awhile.
  18. Yeah I would really love to get this plane but the visuals remind me of that freeware falcon 50 from the FS9 days. These guys and Carenado really need to team up so we can have BOTH good visuals and good systems, not one or the other. P3D is seriously lacking in good quality bizjet addons.
  19. People seem to have the misconception that P3D runs worse than FSX or requires stronger hardware. That's not really the case unless you are really trying to push the sliders all the way to the right. I have run both P3D v4 and FSX on my i5 4690k and GTX 960 system and without a doubt P3Dv4 runs way better. Only difference is that P3D has the potential to have more strain on your system as you can now run way more without having out of memory errors. I use very similar, if not more addons than I did in FSX and still have better performance and better visuals. P3D is just a slightly better/more optimized version of FSX. I think the ONLY reason not to upgrade to P3Dv4 is because of some addon developers charging extortionate amounts for P3D versions of the same product.
  20. Very shady by Orbx. Their website has always said certain regions were REQUIRED for certain airports. I don't know how that could be interpreted any other way. I have very few Orbx airport as I couldn't be bothered to spend nearly $50 on a region just to use an airport I already paid ~$30 for. For example I've always held off buying KBZN because I did not want the Rockies region. It's nice to learn that it is only technically "recommended" and will work without the region; however, it certainly leaves a bad taste in my mouth and I wont be buying any more Orbx products unless they are heavily discounted. Disappointed in how Orbx handled this as well, not once admitting fault for this, but instead claiming as if it was always known that REQUIRED products were apparently only "recommended."
  21. Any update on this now that the Airbus has released?
