  1. Cute chick on a flight deck visit

    Pretty amazing nobody made any Shorts joke yet. But yeah, day old chicken..are cute! Pretty messy with powdery fluff though, if what I read in another forum is true. Amazing story, too! Thanks for sharing!
  2. Getting expensive is still really the only option for some really good first class stuff aka Aerowinx/PMDG/Majestic/A2A, and presumably this, and some fine hardware with Hall effect sensors or head tracking. There's only so much one can do with a small budget but if it gets the job done for one's hobby then it is good enough - and yes, I knew Aerowinx B744 is entirely another beast well above any FSX addon. Going to have to wait for a few reviews myself before getting something this expensive, though I do hope it is as good as it claims to be, and worth the long wait.
  3. Undercarriage Doors

    I see nothing out of place on that image? 737 series' gear doors do not cover the tires.
  4. Ouch! Landing gear failure - with pics

    I remember such thing happening at the end of a 777X flight I did a while back - No damage to anything were noted, but the right landing gear clipped into the ground and the aircraft veered off the runway to the right. Probably something transient. Still provided a rare justification to pull the evac alarm...not that it's a good thing, of course^^;;
  5. Jeppesen Chart - Approaches.

    I'm under the impression that different last characters for arrivals into Kastrup leads to different runway, such as all -D arrivals leading into runway 30 and all -B arrivals leading into 12, but the latest data I had is 1603. Also do note that things like this can be different at different places. Some had no such suffix and some used preceding number to correlate the runways such procedures would have belonged to. I'm also under the impression that real ATC would have given you a vector or direct to final approach fix with a descend and an approach clearance instead of letting you do that loopy track 3000ft above the already congested airport. not unlike this: http://code7700.com/netherlands.html
  6. Power Consumption Monitor. How Many Watts You Using?

    Maybe try it again while running rthdribl and prime95 at the same. Use that as absolute maximum. Also yeah, most home computer setups consume little power compared to A/C and heating(if electrical).
  7. If I may hazard a guess, 60fps is kinda that much smoother.^^;; I also think what OP actually wanted is a performance buffer for when high-detail addons catch up. For when default scenery go slow, what would high-detail addon ones do?
  8. How to properly set up trim on an aircraft?

    That would be P-factor. Counter it with rudder input. I think on some warbirds you do pre-trim your rudder on the ground to counter the large amount of yaw generated by the powerful 1000+hp engine, but details vary per make and model, but on everything else you counter with rudder input only.
  9. PMDG Anti-aliasing

    It's under Antialiasing/Antialiasing - Setting. Also I do fly with DX10 fixer now which would negate most NI preferences including those, but that's what I did before I got the fixer, and it did look pretty good if a bit expensive performance-wise. Even the CDU display was antialiased and readable without zooming in on my tiny 1600x900 laptop screen with that on...Now I read your signature...Guess that would not apply, then. If only there are more anti-aliasing options with DX10 fixer.
  10. PMDG Anti-aliasing

    Try something like 2x2 supersampling in NI if hardware allows and not on DX10. The result was quite pretty on mine.
  11. How to properly set up trim on an aircraft?

    Easiest way to do it: Set trim to takeoff trim when indicated on trim wheel, or otherwise specified in checklist when not, on light aircrafts before takeoff. Make sure the trim is in green band indicated on trim wheel on heavier aircrafts. Use stick to point to where you want to go, then trim to neutralize stick input.
  12. No REX textures with ASN

    As MDFlier noted, ASN is not supposed to conflict with REX as long as both are installed correctly. I myself had reservations about how FSX:SE integrated Steam DLCs...As if FSX's folder structure is not already complex enough. Haven't bought anything from there aside from a couple of addon aircrafts, and (thankfully!) those worked all right. Also make sure weather theme is set to the one ASN came with. The one time my weather showed anything close to what you described it was set to default fair weather with ASN running in the background, resulting in no clouds beyond very small distance from aircraft while descending in some heavy IMC. If all else fails, do a clean reinstall with all fresh cfgs if possible.
  13. FMC Msg: Unable CRZ ALT

    My apologies if my comment troubled you... That was not my intention. Congrats on getting your question sorted out!
  14. 737-800 Q&A

    That's a good tailwind, at least...Still somewhat faster and much higher than most turboprops. Guess that's how most of them sold.
  15. You're not supposed to fly if you know there will be icing conditions unless the aircraft is known ice certified in any case. Even then it's a judgement call about personal limit - as it would likely be IFR uncomfortably close to minimums - and icing strength. Not even TKS would do much against severe ice. Ice and anti-ice simulation is the weak point of FSX and all current flavors of it. If there's one thing I would like to see in a new flight sim, it's frost on wiper bolt when there should be, with appropriate effects. EDIT: Rephrase - just realized how accusatory some of that sounded. My apologies!
