  1. I don't understand what everyone is complaining about. I have all the Sims, weather add-ons including As16, and constantly looking for the best visuals with Smooth performance. 

    Yesterday when I loaded sf3d and used their settings with pta, and their first default set of textures I was amazed. The clouds and haze look better than any other sim I can think of. The sky looked beautiful and colors from pta preset spot on. My p3d sim has never run so solid and smooth! 

    I had a chilling realism last night and I think everyone is unfairly judging or may not have set it up correctly because I see a big big difference.

    I don't know what I am doing.. or what I am supposed to do.


    I installed it... now what?


    Do I have to have this running all the time? or is it only to install the theme? found the manual. Need to read it

    I am in PAgp pago. Usually there is bad weather here.


    Without Active sky running All I get is clean sky and no clouds. weather Engine status = Weater on Standby

    with Active sky I  see clouds.




    They released a very nice 85 page manual a couple days ago =P

    I want skyforce to be a success, but there are a few red flags that concern me. I could write several paragraphs here, but I kept it succinct. By keeping it succinct it may seem as though I hate skyforce before trying it, but that is not the case. 

    First, there is lots of hype on the first 2 pages that essentially communicate that the sim atmosphere will behave/appear like the real world atmosphere using skyforce. That is what we all want and we are being told what we want to hear. This same method has been used in the past by rex, here we are AGAIN.  

    Second, registration REQUIREMENT I understand entering a serial code to prove/validate payment, but to require registration - really? What if a potential customer does not want a personal relationship with rex? too bad....this smells of communism to me, and I would love to hear the explanation as to why a customer HAS TO register in order to be a customer. 

    Third, settings that appear to conflict with what all the hype is all about. I understand not everybody has a 5 GHz beast, but what is the point in having skyforce if one cannot utilize all that hype. Who will be able to utilize it all, I wonder.

    Fourth, when a product manual "kind of" encourages the use of competitors products; I mean if the weather engine in skyforce is so good, it surly would not need to time and again refer to other weather engines as a substitute. Now if it was for wx radar alone, that should be specifically stated once and move on.

    I think that any beta testers who has said "oh wait and see - you'll be amazed" are the same ones who don't or did not mind lowering sliders and tolerating VAS issues. They don't mind having to lower the rex settings for stability or FPS, and they don't feel like they can complain, because they are getting the product for free. I want to hear from somebody who has a 5+GHz beast and expect to be able to implement all that hype.

    Nevertheless, I will wait for full flight videos on skyforce with max settings, in P3Dv4 with very high settings, before agreeing that skyforce is the breakthrough that the beautiful sounding hype speaks of. Lets see if beta testers will do these full length unedited flight vids for us soon.

    When we see the price, and the product in action, we will be able to determine value a lot better.  

    I hope there is a major call for rex to get rid of that registration requirement. uggh

    I kinda agree with the registering of the product. But first, I wish people would stop talking about vas. No where else in computer science do you see this term used on a daily basis. Now with p3d v4 64 bit there is no need to talk about this. I'm sorry if you don't have version 4, but EVERYTHING is transitiontioning to 64 bit so sooner or later you will be left behind. 

    Regarding the 5ghz, you obviously did not read the manual as this increases fps as it handles cloud sprites differently. 

    And this isn't communism.

  4. Your main hardware is up to date. The only thing that you Need to upgrade is that video card. Gtx 1070 0r 1080. If you got the cash buy 1080ti. This is where you will have the greatest benefit especially with 8+gb of vram

    Wasn't it in 11.10 that they said there be a big increase in fps in the recent Cosford presenation they made? Most people are claiming either no difference or mostly less fps. I was really hoping for a boost here especially as I like to use VR.

    Yes. But Ben said it may or may not make it in the first beta. It should be in 11.10 though and yes they are shooting for 60 fps and smooth frames.

  6. "The Board" should learn how advertising works.  So what if users post a link to where the product is purchased?  The whole point of online advertising is generating quality site traffic.  If you continue to crack down on users, we go other places, your site traffic plummets, and advertisers become angry.  I use to sell ad space on websites for a major newspaper.  Just my two cents.

    Hi Chas,

    It is in the closed Flight1 support forum. Sorry, don't have a link.

    You can already do this. "Flight Plan" -> "New Flight Plan from Route Description". Paste the coordinates, add departure and destination, read and create route.

    Just tested this and it is working. I already added the Skyvector coordinate format some time ago.

    Plenty.:smile: Especially for X-Plane stuff. Expect a PM soon.


    Hey Alex @albar965,

    I would love to beta test for X-Plane 11.  I was looking through your git and saw you have been working on the xplane plugin.  If it helps im currently enrolled in computer science and graduating December and hold a pilots license =D.


  8. Hi Dave,

    I have tried the aerosoft and standard flight plans and have had issues.  I kinda got one flight plan to load but it didnt load the waypoints.  I was researching over on the Aerosoft forums, and Mathijs has stated that he will leave it up to devs to update the format for the CRJ flight plan and has attached this document which can be found in the announcement: http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/125297-flight-plan-documentation/ . If you see a work around or something I can do to get this working I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks.



  9. First, I want to say thanks as I have started using this program this week and it adds the final layer of immersion I have been missing in my flight sims.  I was wondering if you have had a chance to look at the SDK for exporting flight plans to the new CRJ that was released on Aerosoft this week?   I have purchased this aircraft and its a pain to have to manually program the fmc.  Keep up the good work!


  10. I have seen a lot of people recently asking about x plane 11. I personally think it has become a true prime time sim and has completely replaced p3d and its add-ons for me. 

    Anyway, the Steam summer sale is happening until July 5 and you can buy x plane 11 for 26% off or $44 USD. Good time to join in on the fun as x plane is only getting better.

    You are right, the audio could be better but one can see the potential of the addon. Btw, the developer does the coding for this very complex addon in his spare time. I'm impressed.


    Absolutely. I shouldn't criticize I know his main concern is WT 3.0 I should of asked is there a feature list somewhere I could read?
