    New airport from Flightbeam

    One of the most challenging airports in the world in high wind conditions. Unlike most airports high winds occur very frequently. Very. Instant buy. Try taking a 737 or 320 in there with steady wind of 50Kts gusts to 65...P3D doesnt scare you a hundredth of the real world. Maybe LM might fix the wind/turbulence model in 4.3 and make it realistic with wind surges etc like in that other sim cough X-#&@%$& Then Wellington will truly be alive in P3D.

    P3d v4.3

    If you want to see PBR rather than watch a video go download the free xplane demo. Load the 737 or 172 at dusk ir dawn and pan around the aircraft and watch the way the refections, light bouncing off rivets, canopies and all aircraft curves etc work. Its next level stuff and when you see it you will see what is missing from P3D.
  3. Lyndiman has made beautiful ortho scenery for the North and South islands. I have not seen Ortho done so well all color matched and simply beautiful. So good i had to send him a small donation as its simply awesome...
  4. Great little scenery they got it spot on..we visited Fairbanks a year ago they even put in the two mini boneyards...nice work!

    Freeze! Cold Weather Operations, Part 1

    Having experienced severe icing at -52C that required an immediate descent ie almost an inch of airframe ice in under 90 seconds i no longer use the industry ballpark numbers of +10C to -40. Nice article...

    REALITY-XP GNS V2/GTN TOUCH

    No mention at all about how to update the database such an integral part of an addon aimed at more serious users. So how is it updated through the addon menu or via Navigraph or Aerosoft? A unit like this where the device cant be updated has a useful life of under 4 weeks so how about a guide on database updating the single reason I have not purchased a GTN?

    Maddog & MD Rotate worth?

    I think the plank wing of the Mad Dog in flight looks wrong in fact it even appears to have almost anhedral. the MD-80 family have a small amout of upward curve that looks particularly graceful and is totally missing from the P3D Md Dog. Other than frame rate its my biggest issue with the P3D version. The wing needs some bend or it looks just wrong. Wont effect anyone who doesnt use outside views though!
  9. Managed to track down FSUIPC 5.122a which works with 4.2 and Chaseplane is back to being smooth with no stutter issues.. Thanks for the pointer.
  10. Hi Kevin I actually havnt used Chaseplane for some weeks or any sim as i have been away on holidays for over a month. In short after updating to 4.2 FSUIPC caused issues so updated it and updated chaseplane etc. If i turn off chaseplane i have butter smooth panning using spacebar plus mouse. Turn Chaseplane on it pans but staggers and stops then moves again. Will try with FSUIPC removed...
  11. I am getting huge stutters with the latest version. Shut chaseplane down and all is smooth. Tried disabling advanced features no change still large stutters verging on pauses.

    Is assumed temp working?

    Might be the ART checking now...

    Is assumed temp working?

    no engine anti ice..

    Is assumed temp working?

    It has dashes. My understanding is that with a flex temp dialled in the max EPR for that temperature should be displayed and if autothrust is used for take off the max thrust should be limited to that EPR value. At the moment with dashes displayed there is no limit and yes the engines overboost. Will check your refs thanks...
