    V-Tail Bonanza by A2A

    And why is that? They do offer a "Professional" version.

    the file says "B350i for FSX", but it is the installer for P3Dv4. It worked like a charm for me, and everything installed as it should. The plane works great for me. Absolutely stunning work.

    xpuipc problem

    try running ipconfig.exe. Look for the line "IPv4 Address" That is the IP that xpuipc is looking for.

    Ultra Weather XP

    Actually HiFi is actively working on their ActiveSky for XP. They posted on their forums some time ago for Beta Testers to start testing it. I applied, but didn't get picked for the first round of testing, but they sent me an email letting me know I should re-apply later this month for the next round of testing. I am really anxious to see what they bring to XP.

    Ultra Weather XP

    No, the clouds don't render out more than about 50-75 miles, but uses haze effects to blend the clouds to the horizon. It works okay for general aviation, but for jets it does not look nearly as good.

    Ultra Weather XP

    I just bought this a few days ago. The sky textures are the best I have ever seen. They really look amazing. The water textures look very good as well. I bought it mainly for the cloud textures. Sadly this is the one area where I was disappointed. It gives you several controls to adjust the lighting, size, and shape of the clouds, but I did not really care much for the selection of cloud textures. There are many freeware textures that look far better. And the promo video claims that there is absolutely no frame rate hit. While under most settings this was true, I did find that some of the cloud options caused a significant drop in frames. But I have to say, the overall impression made my jaw drop when I first loaded the sim up with the new textures. I loaded up at dawn with the new sky and few clouds, and when I switched to an external view, it looked so real, I was totally amazed. I am satisfied with my purchase, and the more I tinker with the cloud tools, the more I am liking them, but I think I will be trying some freeware clouds with the product. The tech support is very good. The developer is very active in the forum, and interacts very well with customers. And he responds very quickly to any requests. He is very open to suggestions as well. Top notch support.
  7. of course, FS9 is way better than FSX, and even better than P3D(all versions). I get no OOMs, very smooth frame rates, and it doesn't take up as much hard drive space.......what can be better than that? (except maybe FS4)

    Wow, it is soooo smooth. This is by far the smoothest flying sim I've ever flown. With all my settings maxed, it was super smooth with no stutter and no lag. Outstanding work!

    It looks like its out, as I can select vulkan in my graphics settings. Now if I can only figure out how to contact support. I have gone through and set all my control settings and TrackIR settings, but every time I try to go and fly, the sim loads up in the cockpit upside down and I can't figure how to reset my view right side up.

    Trees from XP11

    I have been using BashIT-TreesWest xTreme Trees East and West, which is new payware, and I'm very happy with it. I'm using Ortho ZL17 for all of the US, and this works perfectly with it. I've checked out quite a few areas and have not seen trees in stadiums or building, and even the roads are clear of trees. Brian did an amazing job with these packages to make sure the trees are where they are supposed to be. And for only $10 for each package, it is definitely worth the money in my opinion. These two packages give you complete coverage of the entire US including Alaska and Hawaii, and is so simple to install. He even offers a free demo, so you can check it out before you buy. I bought East at SimMarket, but West here at the Org store. The demo is available here at the Org free downloads area.
  11. Amazing aircraft, Thank You Aerobask! What an amazing free gift.

    Trying to make the P3D vs XP11 Decision...

    Ditto, Ditto, Ditto. What can I say. I have both as well and can no longer part with either. I cannot say which one I like better. It changes all the time. It depends what I am in the mood to do. Most of the time I like better AI traffic where P3D would win hands down, but P3D does not have photo scenery available for it that looks nearly as good as what you can get (for free) for X-Plane. I was never really satisfied with night lighting in FSX or P3D, but to me, X-Plane night flying is stunning. And of the two sims, I like the detail and realism of the aircraft in P3D/FSX much better than in X-Plane, especially with the GA aircraft. I haven't found a GA plane in XP yet that has a good start-up and shut-down sound. But again, it all depends on the mood I am in or what kind of flying I intend to do when deciding which sim I am going to fly. As stated above, X-Plane does not have a refund policy that I know of, but they do have a demo that you can try to get a feel for it. P3D does have a refund policy, so if you don't like it enough, you can get a refund. I honestly feel though that you will end up like alot of us who just can't tell you which one you should get and end up getting both and loving each for what they have to offer. There is no way I will ever part with either.

    FlywithLua errors

    sorry for the late reply, but no issues for me either. I have two installs of 11 beta updated to the latest. Each copy has different lua addons, but none are giving me any issues.
