  1. Recently installed Littlenavmap for FSX. Its a great app! Have a few questions tho: 1) Can the app be accessed separately while in the cockpit? In particular, can the airport maps that show gates, taxiways, etc, and airport info be called up as a pop-up window? If so, how? I couldn't find anything about this, and I don't have a 2nd computer to keep it called up to have access to it. 2) On the airport maps, when highlighting a gate or parking spot, a distance is listed (examples are 118 or 236ft.). What are they for? They can't be a distance to a marked taxiway. Most of them are too far away. 3) Why don't terminals, buildings, parking spots, etc. show up for Military bases? You can go on Google Earth and see them, so they're not classified info. The only places you can start a flight at military bases are either the end of the runway, or the fuel stand. Any info on these issues would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.
  2. I was doing some personal research and there's something I don't understand regarding airliner ranges as compared to seating capacity. As an example, according to Airbus, the A350-9 has a range of 8100NM with 325 pax. However, the Lufthansa A359 carries 293 pax, but according to their website, it has a range of only 7625 miles (6630 NM), which is only approx. 81.8% of the range stated by Airbus. Why would the range be so much shorter? If the 293 pax carried is approx. 90% of the nominal 325 pax carried by the A359, wouldn't the range be 10% longer than what Airbus states, due to the a/c having a lighter load? Wouldn't this be a general rule of thumb for all commercial airliners? If not, what would be other factors involved to affect this? Any info regarding this topic, would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

    Question regarding 737 Max8 for FSX

    Thanx for the info. Was aware of having to set trim, but never had to on other default or TDS a/c I had downloaded before, so I didn't consider it. Works fine now. Thanx again.
  4. Recently downloaded the following a/c from simviation: b737 max8 american, TDS 737 Max 8 RYR FSX-1, and the TDS-B737-MAX8-LUFTHANSA for FSX. Am having an issue with these regarding rotation. All work fine except that they will not rotate on takeoff roll. Flaps extend at all settings, but a/c will not rotate at any speed or weights. Have checked calibration of stick, and tried various sensitivity settings. Nothing has worked. Has anyone else had this issue, or know of a fix for the problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

    Airport layout app

    Am not sure if this is the right place for this, so forgive me if it isn't. Is there an app that will show airport layouts (inc. terminals, ramps, taxiways, etc.) in a separate window while in the cockpit, so that progressive taxi will show on it, as opposed to showing progressive taxi on the vc or 3d cockpit? I don't have an extra computer to show them on while in the game.

    Some FSX issues

    First let me apologize if this is not in the right spot. Couldn't figure where to put it. Am having a some minor issues w/ FSX that I can't seem to figure out. 1.) Flights are no longer being recorded in the Log Book. Had this happen before & the only way I could fix it was to re-install FSX. I really don't want to do that again. 2.) A/c radar blips are not showing up on the FMC screen anymore. Never had this happen before. They were showing up just fine, till recently they just stopped showing. Can't figure out why? Already tried re-installing the FMC add-on app, but no luck. Docs don't give any info about this. 3.) The Power Levers on the ISDT King Air 200 will not respond after autopilot is engaged. They go straight back to idle power, and won't work after that. Tried to look for a fix, but no luck there either. Also, is there a way to add a digital clock to aircraft that don't have one? Any help on these from anybody would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

    Question regarding Dino Cattaneo F-35

    Have the freeware version.
  8. Not sure if this is the right spot for this, but couldn't figure where else to put it : I have the Dino Cattaneo F-35 pack. Installed it with no problems, but when I select it before a flight, it doesn't render properly. All I get is a cutaway view. I assume this is because I don't have enuf RAM. Is this correct? My sys. : AMD 3.4Gb Phenom II, MSI Geforce GT1030 2GB Vcard, 8Gb GSkill Ripjaws 1333 RAM, Windows 7 64bit, FSX Gold with Acceleration Pack. Isn't this enuf to run the aircraft? If not, what do I need? I did a search, but couldn't find any info. I don't have this problem with any other aircraft that I have. Any help is appreciated. Thanx. Again, my apologies if this is not the right spot for this.

    CTD issue with FSX & Windows 7

    Will try to look that up for more info.
  11. Recently re-installed FSX Gold & Acceleration Pack. Have a 3.4Gb Phenom II Quad Core, EVGA 550Ti vcard & 8Gb Gskill "Ripjaws Red" 1333 RAM, and Windows 7 64bit. I realize this isn't a great sys., but when I had an older sys., everything worked fine. The issue is this: Even with settings on the low side, I'm getting less than 25 fps. Also, having trouble finishing flights due to CTD. Flights I do finish are not being recorded on the pilot log. Anyone with ideas to fix this would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.
  12. I recently had to re-install FSX Gold and the Acceleration Pack on my computer. It has Windows7 Home Premium 64bit, and a GTX 550Ti video card. FSX installed fine, but when I try to open the game, it says the vcard is incompatible and I have to nstall the most recent drivers. I already did that. It worked previously just fine on a computer with Windows XP. Have never had this problem before. Would like to know if anyone is familiar with this issue, and if so, what may fix the problem. Any info would be extremely appreciated. Thanx.
  13. I'd like to have a custom livery made on some aircraft, but I do not have the ability to do them myself. I have already made them on side view drawings using ACDsee and MS Paint. I have them for the CRJ700, C100/300, A320/21, A330-200/300, A350-9, B738, B744, and B788/9. Can provide them as a guide as to what I'm looking for. I have tried to contact the people who did the original liveries of the aircraft that I downloaded, but have had no luck. If anyone is available to make these for me, I would greatly appreciate it. Please let me know. Thanx.
  14. I need to have a couple custom liveries made for some fsx aircraft but cannot make them myself. I can provide info and possibly pics for what I need. If anybody can make them for me, please contact me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.
  15. I know this is probably a long shot, but I want to ask anyway. I have a Mobo steering wheel and pedals that I use when driving racing sims. I'm wondering if the pedals would be compatible for use as rudder pedals with prepar3d and/or XPlane? I dont want to buy pedals if I dont have to. If they wont work, my first option is just using the twist function of the Saitek X55 Rhino stick. Any info would be appreciated. Thanx.
