  1. Hello, I've read the threads I was able to find but none seem to be the same issue I am having with using LNM with MSFS 20. I use this awesome tool for P3D v5 and XPlane 12 with no issues. And it works fairly decent with MSFS, however, I noticed today there is a warning at the bottom of LNM when using it for MSF that tells me the Database is empty. When I attempt to load the MSFS 20 database I get a "Caught exception" error. It then tells me there was an error reading /LocalCache/Content.xml file on line 5, column 13: premature end of document. When I open the Content.xml package here is what's inside: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?> <Priorities> <Package name="navigraph-navdata-base" priority="1"/> <Package name="navigraph-navdata" priority="2"/> </Priorities> If anyone knows how to resolve this it would be appreciated.
  2. I did a re-install and same issue. It happens at default as well as addon airports.
  3. I am now having the same issue (I believe). Recently, UGCX crashes P3D v5.3 when I select "1-Communications are okay and the brakes are set". It doesn't matter what aircraft I am using (PMDG, FSLabs) it happens everytime. I do not know how to submit a ticket as this is the first time I've ever had an issue with FS2Crew product. I have no idea why the product stopped functioning correctly and causes the simulator to crash every time. Any assistance would be appreciated.
  4. Hello, I'm late to the game, but I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix the elevation issue? I've installed the AFCAD file along with the appropriate files in the SODE and SIMOBJECT folders but I'm still seeing a floating layer. (The default jetways are working). Any help is appreciated!
  5. Hello, All: I just purchased KMCO for P3D v5 and upon installation received a config error message. There were two were two versions in the download after purchase (v4v5 and v4v5_1) and I chose the one that was v4v5_1 since I am using P3D v5 HF1. Has anyhone else experienced this issue?
  6. Thanks, Matthew. I know it's an old post but I found your suggestion beneficial. I started having the hot brakes issue and it seems this fixed it.
  7. If you’re still interested CS is currently selling the 757 for P3D at $25 dollars but it’s only good for 24 hours. I paid full price when it was released and it’s just under a third of that for the base package. I didn’t get the bargain but others will. I even bought the RR expansion pack and you guessed it: paid full price for that too. Personally, I think CS should offer previous owners a free -F when it’s released. I paid well over a hundred total for the base and one pack: now it’s going for only $50. I won’t get fooled again.
  8. All of it is rather fascinating indeed. I was unaware of the agreement between PMDG and Level D although at this point I would think all bets are off since it appears Level D will not be updating their 767 to P3D v4. The last time I checked Level D pretty much said their free update patch to v3 was it. I really do wish PMDG would create a 767 rather than upgrading the same ole aircraft. They just updated the 747 (again) along with a new -8i expansion and rumors are they started working on the new 737 Max and an updated J41. While I own everything they’ve made (FSX and P3D) it sure would be nice to see their rendition of the 767. Especially since there isn’t one for the 64 bit simulator. Don’t get me wrong: they are my favorite developer and do great work (including paint kits). However, it’s an airplane I miss and it’s difficult to fly FSX just for that plane when P3D v4 is so much nicer. It would be great to fly the 767 again.
  9. Thanks for the reply. I downloaded the kit from PMDG's website on the day I originally posted this question and the instructions were for X-Plane only (that I read). I'm sure it's the same for each platform and that the Ops Center will work for installing the livery. i just wanted to make sure there are no differences between sims since I do not own X-Plane (although it looks really nice). PMDG is by far one of the best (if not the best) addon software companies for flight simmers.
  10. Hello, All: I searched this forum and was not able to find any information on the DC-6 paint kit. Currently PMDG only has the X-Plane version with X-Plane install instructions: I'm looking for instructions to publish liveries for P3D/FSX. I am assuming we can use the Operations Center to package and install custom paints but I'd like to make sure. I've already started my own paints and just want to make sure I install them correctly and that I am using the correct files. If anyone knows where the instructions are for the other flight sim platforms I would appreciate it very much. Thanks!
  11. Hello, everyone: I am looking for a tutorial on how to paint the QW 757. I've read the small instruction/directions on the paintkit but I'm not sure of the proper process for creating the correct files to install so the repaint shows up in FSX. I've googled this without much success. I couldn't find a YouTube video either. I've painted the PMDG aircraft with almost no difficulty and I'm hoping there is something out there other than the limited instruction contained on the master fuselage file within the paint kit. Any info on where to find a complete tutorial or video would be great! Thanks, Will
  12. Hello, All: I did a search but was unable to find a topic regarding the distribution of VA (Virtual Airilne) repaints. I understand we are to provide only the textures as the user is required to have a licensed installed copy of the PMDG 777. I've recently painted several aircraft for a VA (different divisions) but I haven't posted them yet as I wanted to make sure I do it correctly. Is it acceptable to provide a download of only the textures, texture config file, and thumbnail for others to use for this or any PMDG product? If this sounds obvious, my apology. Thank you, Will T.

  13. Hello, I am new and hopefully posting this in the correct forum as well. I intended to purchase the 747-400 today an noticed the 747 is currently not available. Is this due to the new release? It was good to find info letting us know the new 747 is not an upgrade so I'll hold off until the new 747 is released (hopefully soon). I am also hoping the paint kit is better than the 777 which has a short coming with regards to the alpha channel for the windows. Thanks, Will
