    So, is P3D3 dead?

    Used FS 9.1 for many years - skipped FSX completely. Still flying P3D3 with no issues. No plans to upgrade. Different strokes for different folks! :-)

    Visual problem with Bar Harbor scenery

    Stew, thank you very much for the link. While this was helpful, it didn't solve the problem. It turns out to be a documented conflict with UT. Someone else posted pics (last year) of the same faulty tiles I saw. Disabling two files in the scenery fixes it. Very grateful for all the simmers who help each when things like this come up! Ron

    Visual problem with Bar Harbor scenery

    Hi, Stew. Do you happen to have a link? A few searches in the Support forum didn't turn up anything. This is what I am seeing:

    P3D or Orbx issue?

    Sorry - this is for v3. I should have mentioned that. I'll try your idea. Ron

    P3D or Orbx issue?

    I am using UT for roads / railroads. Everything else is all Orbx - Global Base, LC NA, etc. No other local scenery. Weirdest thing I've come across. Ron Edit: I'm still going to fly here - it's beautiful. But it would be nicer to fix it! :-)

    P3D or Orbx issue?

    In the photos below, does anyone know if this is a P3D issue, Orbx issue, or something else? Google is not my friend so far... Thanks, Ron
  7. Hello, all. I run P3D v3.3. I recently installed the newish "Bar Harbor" airport scenery. It is beautiful - I love the realism it gives the whole area. However, I noticed several "land tiles" in the water just SE of the Harbor; heading out into open ocean. One has trees! There is also another on on the SW side of Mt Desert Island; in the Narrows. Google did not turn up anything; so I'm wondering what would cause such an issue? I use UT for roads; but everything else is Orbx; and Central and the Library are up-to-date. Thank you! Ron

    No more glass cockpits for my machine

    It was actually the F1 Mustang. I was typing on my tablet, and pulled that out of somewhere other than my brain... It's a very nice bird; but my machine just wasn't up for it. This isn't a complaint about anything; just an observation. Ron
  9. On a whim, I decided to fly the Falcon on a short CC into KORD last evening. Yikes! My poor old machine did not like that experience very much. I didn't turn on the FPS, but it had to be high single digits; or low doubles. I suppose I could turn down all my sliders; but I'll probably just stick with my piston Duke until I hit the Lottery someday. :-)

    Mesh, Textures and Landclass

    I own GEP3D - which I was a huge fan of. But I have stopped using it in favor of FTX Global Base and OpenLC NA. The only difference is that I use the UTX products instead of FTX Vector. You can read the pros and cons; but I am happy with UTX; especially after tweaking it. You may still want a mesh product - like FreeMesh X. I had FS Genesis for years; but switched to free products like this one. Good luck! These products greatly enhance the flying experience; especially if you fly "low and slow" like me. Ron

    Flight Plans - stored where?

    Thanks, Steve. Got 'em! Ron
  12. Can anyone tell me where the flight plan files are saved? (Plans created by the P3d Flight Planner.) I've looked around, and searched the forum, but didn't see that exact item. Thanks. Ron

    Night Lighting

    Well, folks...after a couple weeks of being away from P3d because of work and other distractions, I finally got a chance to get back to my "night fires" problems. I am happy to report that PTA - along with picking the correct night lighting - pretty much solved the problem! I have seen some screenshots that look better than what I have; but this is a huge improvement from what I had earlier. It is kind of a pain to experiment in PTA over and over - but it has such a great selection of options that eventually everything looks amazing. So thanks for all the earlier suggestions. I can now do night flying again; and not land at dusk! :-) Ron

    Tilt the eye point

    Provided I understand your question, on my setup, the '9' and '0' key tilt up/down. Actual QWERT keyboard; not the numberpad. I don't recall if that is default, or if I mapped those in. Ron
