  1. Heathrow to Dublin

    ORBX EU Netherlands TrueEarth released

    That is not good for me. I don't think I've got the machine to run my favorite birds (fslabs a320 and pmdg 747) with this scenery, given that normal Orbx regions bog the frames down a lot without turning down the settings far to the left. Oh well. I am guessing this will require a monster machine to run complex aircraft and complex airports well.

    I agree, just awful.

    I downloaded some of that custom France autogen freeware to use with some freeware French photoscenery that was posted here on the forum. I was disappointed with the result. Too generic. Also, the problem with Orto4XP is that the autogen is very generic too and the cities lack identity, otherwise it is a fine solution if you use that sim. Orbx will at least show places that bear a decent resemblance to reality even if it doesn't match perfectly in actuality.

    I have mega scenery earth but I don't like the look on approach and takeoff without decent autogen. Also, I'm too lazy to download tons of custom autogen for every country i visit. I'm interested in seeing this product's performance with the A320 because that's my bird.

    It's simple compared to the FSLABS. That's my benchmark. The 737NGX doesn't require the kind of resources that the FSLabs product demands. That's what I mean when I say simple. Simple as in complexity of the software in comparison to the more advanced birds. Not that the NGX is a basic plane, it just runs far easier on complex scenery without crumbling to a depressing 19 fps.

    The FPS performance is probably not great with the FSLABS A320 if people have issues with simple planes like the NGX. I have a hard time with just Orbx LC/Vector and Fly Tampa Amsterdam. My machine is 2 years old (haswell e + 1080) and getting acceptable frames now requires me to turn down the settings to low or medium. I also can not run orbx England due to London frames, and even Orbx NorCal is hard with this plane. I'm hesitant to buy since I fly that bird a lot. However, it looks great and I'm tempted to pull the trigger given I'm honestly sick of boring orbx generic land class scenery.

    Removing haze in xplane 11

    What are you trying to imply with your quotes there?

    Removing haze in xplane 11

    Will they remove fog in x-plane 11 soon? I think it looks odd. What is the purpose of fog on a bright and sunny day? Is it to cover up something?

    Problem with RNAV approach - Vnav not descending.

    The fslabs has a hard time with it too. Does not descent at the FAF. Also at Sion, does not descend at the FAF. I'm sure there is something amiss here..
  10. I'm a newbie and I don't think I'm doing it right. I'm trying to do RNAV approaches into LOWI, specifically the RNAV 08 Z from the West. The charts say that you should intercept the profile at a waypoint at 13000. I descended to that level in time, got the LNAV Approach and VNAV Path and nothing happened, there was no descent, no glide path. The vnav deviation bar stayed level. Any help? I'm sure many have attempted this popular approach. Oh, and a quick follow up question: what fix should you be aiming at when selecting a regular VNAV descent in the FMC? Should you put the FAF or the last waypoint? The reason is that the VNAV has brought me in too steep and late and had me overspeeding on the way down. Thanks

    How to fix corrupted scenery / elevation issue?

    Problem seems to be resolved for now. The solution is posted on the FT forum and a file needs to be modified.

    So, do we like skyforce

    Why do you use ASCA with Rex? Just curious, I'm thinking about the product. Right now using AS + ASCA + Envetex.
  13. Hi. I installed FT Boston and Aerosoft Boston City X Scenery into p3d4 and after doing the Aerosoft scenery the Boston airport has bad elevation errors now. There is hill on runway. I should have just left the FT Boston alone (was working ok) but was advised to try Aerosoft Boston City for improved frames. I have uninstalled everything at Boston but the problem remains with the default. I reinstalled FT Boston and I load up in a ditch, nothing improves. I have tried a repair of P3D, nothing changes. Any advice on getting this thing back to normal at least in Boston?
  14. Just bought this. The PMDGs and FSLabs A320 do not seem to work. Cockpit making awful sounds in a320 when entering plane and no landing gear displayed on their models when leaving (a320 and 747). Entering the PMDG 737 makes it go absolutely hawire with shaking. It's as if an earthquake was shaking the plane. You can enter it once, but if you leave and enter it again it goes bad. Shame. How do I get it to work?. Disappointing. .

    ATC-PRO-X

    Is Pro-ATC/X anything more than a flight follower? I tried it, and it didn't seem to offer any deviation from a fixed plan that you file, other than choosing which SID/STAR for you (which was obvious because it always chose a SID/STAR that started at the first/last fix you put in the plan). Didn't seem very convincing all. I never got any realistic deviations or anything like that for traffic, weather. The vectors also seemed poor, especially when in real life you don't usually fly a STAR right to the ILS. So I concluded that it was just about flying a route from a database and beared little resemblance to a real ATC system. I soon moved on. Also the "support" person was one of the most condescending folks on any support forum I have ever encountered. I regreted giving these people money as soon as I had to interact with them.
