    MilViz T310R

    @Milviz Thank you for your honesty! I recently purchased my first Milviz product a couple weeks ago, the DHC-3 for P3D, and I love it. In order to continue my support for the Milviz family, I will purchase the new 310R for XP tomorrow and of course I will always buy direct.

    New to p3dv4 and wondering something...

    Thank goodness I fly only GA into regional or smaller airports. I think I'm too old to fly sophisticated wife would probably find me dead leaned over my keyboard with some flashing cursor FMC input error.

    Software update annoyance in the FlightSim world

    I feel your pain. One of my biggest complaints about P3D is LMs donkey way of rolling out updates. Obviously, if a user is given a choice of well, you can install this one and this one, and no need to install that one, the chances of getting it wrong is very high. Then one has to worry about whether or not their add-on stiuff will be removed, overwritten when updating. I think LM can do a better job on P3D updates (IMO). Updates in this day and age should be somewhat automated. LR has it right in regards to updates to XP. As far as 3rd party add-ons, yeah, it is very time consuming to seek out updated installers and fixes. I love the ORBX model with FTX Central. I do confess though, that if I want an add-on, I buy it without regard to how it is updated. I suppose I do suffer when it comes to updating my add-ons and I agree some developers can do a much better job with how it is done. You also better be good at record keeping electronic files of your purchases. So, I agree with your assessment, but again if there is an add-on I want or need, I go get it and give no other thought about it.

    What about GA aircraft in TG? There is no mention of GA aircraft is why I am asking. I fly to mostly smaller airfields like county and some regional airports. Currently I use UT Live and I am satisfied with it as far as GA AI. Thanks!

    Profound, but true. P3D keeps me breathing and satisfies my need to sim every day I can. There was a time when I was holding my breath on XP and big mama kept asking why my lips are always blue, so I've been happy with P3D for the most part and will stick with it for now.

    Websites for freeware airliners

    Fair enough my friend, but I do wish you'd have prefaced your original reply with the notification of title edit.

    One of the elephants in the room with P3D

    Meh....I fly only GA in P3Dv4. I notice a few of the things pointed out in this thread, but for whatever reason, I'm not too bothered with it. I will say though that most of the flying I do is down in the Caribbean and most of the sceneries are payware, so there is much photo real used. I do own ORBX PNW and a few payware airports in the region, so I fly there some, but not nearly as much. I can agree that the land classes on big bodies of land has much to be desired. I also own XP11 and I like it to a point, but ground handling, especially on the runways takes most of my enthusiasm straight down the toilet, but I keep it around in hopes that the ground handling and some other key features get fixed some day soon. I understand the case of why many would prefer to fly high alt in P3D, but I'm just not into the heavy metal or jets of any kind, so it's low and slow for me.

    Websites for freeware airliners

    Thank you for that, but why threaten the user when apparently you've made the assumption that he hasn't read Terms of Use policy? I understand the need to keep threads from evolving into questionable areas, but his question wasn't asking for "free payware" and this response seems a little over-the-top to someone that's made only two posts on this forum. Just saying.

    RealAir Duke B60 Coming To v4

    The panel lighting is working, but not the cabin/cockpit lights but I think the panel light switch actually turns on the cabin/cockpit lights. It's not a big deal, but inop switches messes with my OCD 😉

    RealAir Duke B60 Coming To v4

    I downloaded the v4 installer and it appears that the cabin and cockpit lighting issue is still there. I haven't rebooted since I installed, maybe I'll do that to see if anything changes.
