  1. Hi, as per title, I discovered the 747-8 burns fuel when the sim is paused. I didn't pause it the "regular" way with the "P" button (to spare my CPU of reloading the same frame for hours) but through going into the graphics settings in P3Dv4. I had a pretty hectic schedule today (and will probably keep that the next couple of years to come) so it'd be great if the -8 would behave like the 737 and the 777 when going into the P3D menu/pausing the sim. If you have workarounds please let me know them! I didn't find time yet to read through the manual, so if this is explained I'm sorry to waste your time PMDG!
  2. lol... my favorite malware provider has announced they were completely rewriting theirs and use a lot of new techniques they discovered during development of their FBW aircraft line and vice versa.
  3. sorry to jump in on my posts again: no, only partially. Guess what plane has ONLY and EXCLUSIVELY a BTV system and NO other autobrake system (aside redundancies)? I saw something on facebook, they seemed to have had the outside model completed and their nosewheel spacing was horrible, so i'm guessing the Aerosoft approach to that airplane in that company. But indeed I meant the Mettar Sim A380. If you've read their last update, you know that they aim to making it study level. That one is promising to me, I just hope they can maintain their company from a financial standpoint. This is the dream eh? 😄
  4. Timm there are currently two companies building A380's, one of them looks very promising. Also my favorite malware provider seems to play with thoughts about developing an exclusively BTV equipped plane...

    PMDG FSExpo Announcement

    In the post RSR stated that was five years ago and the efforts of the group that PMDG was/is part of wasn't able to "compete" with what Dovetail could offer, so I'm not really with the idea of a PMDG simulation platform. Shared cockpit as explained above seems like the most plausible to me of what I've read in this thread although I would really wish for a fully working 787...

    Not receiving ILS

    theoretically this shouldn't be a problem... EDDF in stock FSX/P3D has only two runways. Aerosoft added the third one and put all respective ILS frequencies in, I have not encountered any problems ever when approaching the "new" runway there. Maybe it's a FlightBeam thing? At their KSFO (I think 28R) the ILS frequency is different to the real one, so you can't rely on the FMS (Navdata) or Charts, because those use real world frequencies... Maybe, if you download ADE, you can change the frequency, if the runway already is in there. And/or check if you need to configure the scenery through the config tool. FlyTampa use the method of interchanging 4 different AFCADs on their EHAM scenery, so maybe the runway you're approaching isn't in the AFCAD because the developer wants to avoid AI traffic collisions.

    PMDG FSExpo Announcement

    I think that QW would still sell their 787 even if PMDG made one. Just like FSL and Aerosoft don't fight for each others customers. Just look at the Aerosoft Forums - their A320 "professional" is highly anticipated, even though the more accurate simulation of the airplane is already available. BUT I don't think they will announce another airplane, given that they worked on it for the last 10 years behind closed doors. I think what ever they made won't exclusively benefit their products.

    IRS messages with FS2Crew

    I had this once because FS2Crew cut the ground power before the APU generator was available... make sure to start the APU at least 5min before the FS2Crew departure and activate at least one APU generator, handling between APU generators and engine generators should work fine if you follow the SOP specific manual.
  9. Hi, since updating to P3D v4.2 I can't use RAAS(64) any more. I did a full reinstall of the Sim and all Add-Ons I own including RAAS when 4.2 was released. I reinstalled the program and tried launching P3D with and without it installed, but it won't show up in the add-ons menu (menubar) or the add-ons window (menubar > options > add-ons...). Also I tried deleting the RAAS folder in the P3D root folder with the same result. My P3D root folder and the folder that holds all my add-on installation files are excluded in scans and anti-virus, the anti-virus was disabled for all installation processes I tried. I can't remember if there was a folder with a xml in the Documents > Prepar3D v4 Add-ons folder that pointed to RAAS in 4.1 but in 4.2 there is no folder. In addition I ran all appropriate utilities in the P3D > RAASPRO > Res folder. The dll.xml in there holds following information: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="WINDOWS-1252"?> -<SimBase.Document version="1,0" Type="Launch"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> -<Launch.Addon> <Name>RAASPRO</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>.\RAASPRO\RAASPRO.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document>
  10. I've used FSUIPC 5.1.21 (non registered) and had the same issue with GSX/ASP4. After deleting all FSUIPC files in my v4 installation folder this didn't reoccur. Umberto from FSDT states that he doesn't use FSUIPC and without it everything works fine - as I can affirm.
  11. Well, same here - if it helps I access from Germany, no VPN on the experimental build.

    Timeout at Startup

    Hi, I'm having the same issue as explained above on the non-experimental build. Same goes for starting VFX Central, both programs show the message Timeout. I'm accessing from Germany and I am not actively using an ISP/VPN. The website takes some time to load but I am able to access it. Restarted my router and PC multiple times, does not make a difference
  13. Hi, I noticed the wing condensation not working properly in P3D v4.1. If you're not already on it here's what I see: The wing condensation starts on top of the inner wing but tilts down towards the outer wing, somehow looks like a strange cloud that flies along with the wing. Thanks for fixing in advance

    Aerosoft CRJ

    Hi, I can't set up my views in the CRJ, everytime I go over the amount of 7 outside cameras chaseplane starts and never finishes to load in the upper left corner, when I close the sim it defaults back to the views I have set at an earlier stage but all the newly configured views are gone every time. I tried the chache file method several times.
