    Best KLAX for p3dv4?

    I have FSDT KLAX and I really haven't noticed much performance issues with the airport. I know they were renovating a 1 or 2 terminals last year so I wouldn't mind seeing a v2 integrate those changes, but I am quite happy with the one I have now.

    Latin VFR Miami V4 Update Released

    Just received a response that I have to remove it manually by deleting a couple of folders.

    Latin VFR Miami V4 Update Released

    Just need a little help. How did you uninstall v3? It doesn't give me that option through the usual uninstall method.

    Flythemaddog is released.

    Yup that's what I get on the left and 1.03 on the right.

    Flythemaddog is released.

    Yea I noticed the site has been a bit slow today. I'll tinker with it a bit more when I get home tonight. Thanks again Richie. Yea if you can provide me with the EPR value when at Edwards AFB with only clear weather that should be good. I know I tried hitting F1 to bring the throttles all the way back to idle, but it might still conflict with the calibration. We'll see.

    Flythemaddog is released.

    Thanks RichieFly! Yea I figured that it depends on MTOW. I actually have never started cold and dark, and just had it load up in the ready to fly scenario, so I just assumed it would be close to MTOW. I could be wrong though. But it inching forward even on parking brake is a bit odd to me.

    Flythemaddog is released.

    Haven't really had much of a chance to test out the plane or admittedly read up through the tutorials. Just hand flew it a couple of circuits to get a feel, but with the parking brake and (and to a much less extent with the parking brake on) does the plane start moving forward? I haven't seen this happen in a long time with the default aircraft. I was just wondering if that's normal. The throttle and joystick is calibrated.

    KORD and KCVG announced for P3D v4!

    They also have KSNA for xplane 11. I wonder if they will release that for p3d v4. I do have latinVFR's which is a great, but it would be nice to see a comparison there.

    RW arrival gate vs approch choice question

    Sure that makes sense as well. I also assumed that runway length had a bit of say in it as well. I generally see longer runways being used for departures over shorter.

    Any Simbrief experts out there?

    Not sure if someone mentioned this or not. If I am missing a sid or star, one thing I do is change the runway then change it back. Everytime I change the runway, simbrief queries me if I want simbrief to automatically change the sid/star. That may get it to add it in for you. I generally stick to routes on flightaware though so I don't do that often.

    RW arrival gate vs approch choice question

    I'm sure it's taken into consideration. KLAX has 4 parallel rwys and, by and large, the intended terminal dictates which runway they take (usually either 24R/6L or 25L/7R). They usually use the longer runways on each side for departing traffic. Of course that is not always the case.

    “Real” pilot job interview

    Sketch reminds me of the ol' Quagmire (Family Guy) announcement scene.

    Slowing plane down on taxiway

    21.1 sounds about right. At that N1 the plane should be gradually slowing down not speeding up. It definitely doesn't require much thrust to get going compared to the default planes. I usually never have to go past 30% to get it up to the speed I want at a good rate.

    NGX clock resets to 0 after 100 minutes

    I generally select the ET switch to start the clock.

    Slowing plane down on taxiway

    So if you cut power completely (F1), it doesn't slow down? What is the N1 reading when idle? -Kevin Woo

    Throttle Settings While Taxiing

    You can skip over this, as I don't have an answer to your question. I do find it a bit odd that the N1 rating for taxiing from one throttle to another would be vastly different, assuming aircraft weight and environmental factors are the same. It wouldn't be a calibration issue to me. Assuming default loadout for cargo/pax, I would say that for my Thrustmaster HOTAS X, it only requires about 23-25% to maintain speed while taxiing. At 29-30% N1, it would definitely be accelerating. - Kevin Woo

    Wing Flex on PMDG's aircraft

    If it's predetermined, it could be that it is done as a result of a limitation in the sim as well. I don't believe the sim accurately depicts changes in wind/pressure/ground surface at such a micro level, so maybe they specify periodic bumps to make it a bit more realistic. Again, I can't say for sure. It's a good question, though. -Kevin Woo

    Wing Flex on PMDG's aircraft

    Are you talking about the wing bobbing up and down and not fluidly flexing? If so, the bobbing effect to me is more realistic due to inconsistencies in air pressure and speed when taking off. Inconsistencies on the ground surface also causes this. I'm by no means an expert though, so take my opinion with a grain of salt, but most planes I've been on acted this way. -Kevin Woo
  19. Hello there, I've been using the PMDG 737NGX for both FSX:SE and P3Dv4 and, firstly, I want to say thanks for making such a fantastic study-level addon! When I installed the 737NGX in P3D v4, I noticed that all the VC views were zoomed in quite a bit compared to the FSX:SE edition. Doesn't matter if it's the overhead panel, FO seat, wingview, or even spot view. It looks like all of the default zoom values are a bit too high. Should I go through and try to adjust all the zoom values on the config to get it to look the same as the other? I probably would need to provide you with a bit more information, but let me know if need to. Sorry if this question was already covered. I did a brief search but couldn't find anything. If you can post a link to that one, that would be much appreciated. Sincerely, Kevin Woo

    PMDG 737NGX 800 - P3D v4.1 Viewpoint Issue

    Thanks for the suggestion. I did change the camera cfg file to .6 or something like that. The problem for me is when you switch to different views on the default planes. At that point, I get the fisheye view. The main vc view is ok though. I know I could go in to each planes config file and change the initial zoom settings on the various views, but that seems excessive. I wound up just disabling the wideview setting and changing the initial zoom settings for the PMDG views. I do wonder if anybody else had to do this. It’s a bit strange that I would be the only one that needs to do this.

    PMDG 737NGX 800 - P3D v4.1 Viewpoint Issue

    HI there, I did end up setting it to wideview. However, I got a fisheye effect with the main vc. The other views look good though. I wound up changing the default camera zoom on the camera.cfg file which corrects for that, but now the other planes have that fisheye view whenever I switch outside the main VC, like the F/O seat. Am I missing something else? Sincerely, Kevin Woo

    PMDG 737NGX 800 - P3D v4.1 Viewpoint Issue

    Ah ha! Got it. Thank you so much. Of course, this was listed under the introduction and I missed it like the goofball that I am. Thanks again for taking you time to help me. Take care. Sincerely, Kevin Woo

    Investment in FSX. Really?

    While I do have and use p3d v4.x as my main sim, I also use FSX from time to time. I have no problems using both. Those that stick with FSX have their reasons, and it is not my place, nor do I have any inclination, to criticize it. I also assume that most people who visit AVSIM on a somewhat consistent basis are at least aware of the other options that out there and the benefits they provide. If not, inevitably they will come across these things because it seems to show up in so many different threads in which alternate platforms are even brought up. Use what you want to use and enjoy!
  24. Looks great. I'm really leaning towards getting it now and go the upgrade route (whatever that may be) for p3d. I'm a bit impatient :P

    Prepar3D 4.1 about to be released?

    Do they usually charge for upgrades between 4.x versions? Sorry, I just recently got into P3D with v4.
