    P3D 4.4 Texture (layering) issues?

    Hi Erich, I had a similar issue with floating tress and buildings after a clean full install. Going to the Add-On menu in the P3D start up page, I saw that the Orbx objectflow2 add-on was not enabled (despite running FTX Central 3 to reinstall the Orbx libraries, Global, NA and Europe LC...) I checked the box to enable, clicked OK and my issues were resolved. Hope you find a solution to your issue soon, Scott

    FLAi2UTL - Anyone?

    I added the FedEx, UPS, and Atlas Air addon schedules to UTL per the package instructions. After running AI2UTL the dhq.ai2utl.log.txt file showed entries for FLAi replacement models for all except the A300 (ABF) Model. Excerpt from the log file below. 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Info: Processing Utl Aircraft: 75F | Carrier: UPS | Operator: UPS 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Info: Processing: C:\Users\Scott\FLAI\SimObjects\Airplanes 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Info: Processing: C:\Users\Scott\FLAI\SimObjects\Airplanes\FLAi_B752\aircraft.cfg 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Info: Processing: C:\Users\Scott\FLAI\SimObjects\Airplanes\FLAi_B753\aircraft.cfg 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Info: 2 replacement aircraft found 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Info: Utl repaint: ** UTLive_752_Daedalus replaced by new model(s): ** FLAi_AIG_B757-200_UPS RR ** FLAi_AIG_B757-200_UPS PW 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Info: Processing Utl Aircraft: ABF | Carrier: UPS | Operator: UPS 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Info: Processing: C:\Users\Scott\FLAI\SimObjects\Airplanes 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Warn: No ai aircraft code(s) defined for Utl aircraft: ABF 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Info: No matching repaints found, proceeding with next Utl aircraft 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Info: Processing Utl Aircraft: ABF | Carrier: FDX | Operator: FDX 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Info: Processing: C:\Users\Scott\FLAI\SimObjects\Airplanes 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Warn: No ai aircraft code(s) defined for Utl aircraft: ABF 2018-11-11 13:06:50 Info: No matching repaints found, proceeding with next Utl aircraft

    FLAi2UTL - Anyone?

    No issues for me so far using the "only add missing" option. I tried to duplicate Mike's issue at EDDM and did not have any errors/crashes. I still see more Daedelus repaints than I thought I would. That being said, I only recently downloaded the FLAi models and have not dug into the folders to see what is included. This brings me back to duckbilled's question; will FLAi2UTL use non FLAi models if one places them into the FLAi folder? Time to explore!

    FLAi2UTL - Anyone?

    I chose the "only add missing" option for my first test. I'm loading various airports to see the new FLAi models. No issues or crashes as of yet. mwilk, which airports did you select when P3Dv4 crashed? I'll try to reproduce on my end.

    FLAi2UTL - Anyone?

    Totally agree. UTL is growing stale and this will breathe new life into the P3D world.

    Aivlasoft EFB v2 coming soon

    SimBrief has thee option to use historical weather data using Active Sky. Using this option, SimBrief will import a weather snapshot from Active Sky using the time/date you entered into SimBrief...
  7. Thanks Bryan! You have made a great product even better.

    PMDG 747 & GSX Bug

    Dan, you are correct about Door 2L as the main entry for the 744. However, if the OP wants realistic GSX vehicle locations for catering, fuel, and cargo, then Woozie's guide and customized GSX Aircraft file (linked in my post above) will get the job done.

    PMDG 747 & GSX Bug

    You need a custom .GSX .cfg file for the 747. All explained in the topic below... https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/507402-guide-gsx-pmdg-ground-vehicles-–-how-to-mix-match/
  10. Thank you, sir! That fixed that problem.
  11. I have experienced this same issue and I believe that it is driven by FSUIPC. In my case FSUIPC is visible in the add-on menu when the menu text plays hide and seek. If I wait about a minute, the menu will return to normal operation, however, FSUIPC is no longer displayed under the add-on menu. I have not resolved this issue yet...

    PMDG 747v3 CTD P3D v4.2

    I only had to load the default F-22 once to get the 747 to load. Since then I have restated 4.2 and can successfully run the 747 without having to first load the default flight. I updated the p3d client only...
  13. Hi Bryan, I think you found the root cause of this issue.. I ran 2 tests based on the altimeter selection logic, on the active runway at R33 (Wakonda Beach State ) and at KPDX (Portland Intl). As you predicted, the altimeter scale remains set to IN at KPDX but is switched to HPA when at R33 (nearest airport with K/P/C located 11.7 NM away). Can you change the logic to check for the arrival ICAO code from the flight plan or FMC? -thanks, Scott
  14. Not seeing this issue here. I see the Start switch in the Start position for ~12 seconds before it returns to the On position during APU start up. Same results with SO1 and SO2... -Scott
  15. Hi Bryan, Thanks for the update to the QOTS II. The additional voices are fantastic in addition to the bug fixes. I do have a few questions and observations after running through SOP 1 and 2. the door (2L) no longer opens at the start of the pre-flight events and does not close at the +2 minute mark as in the manual. I like the integration with PMDG Ground Service Vehicles, however, I am unsure of which vehicles are triggered by FS2 CREW. The image shows what looks like 3 catering and the cabin cleaning truck. I only get one catering truck at the 1R position. only the forward and aft cargo are set to Hide in PMDG options to allow GSX to perform those duties. The FO now turns on his F/D during the pre-flight procedure, usually before I have turned on the Captain's F/D. My pet peeve bug from v1 still exists: the FO always changes my barometer setting from IN to HPA during the decent procedure... On the other hand, I did notice a few references to the 747-800 in the manual. Are you future proofing the manual? Thanks again for the update and I look forward to the day when I can try the UGCX integration feature! -Scott
