  1. Wish it had the old school steam gauges...I might have bought that.
  2. I'm going to be visiting Pripyat in person in September, along with Kiev and Chernobyl. Looking forward to the trip.
  3. Nothing for a modern simmer here...not for a while at least
  4. Flight 1 Citation Mustang is terrific.
  5. I use the external frame rate limiter because my performance without it is anything but "flawless"
  6. I do all my charts and weather on an ipad - so this is very helpful to me. I actually use two ipads. My older one, which has a weak battery, is always attached to the computer, and I use the mobile one as well. One for en route charts and one for sectionals. I love being able to swap quickly to the weather ap in flight, see where the wind is coming from, and prepare accordingly. I got to ride on a biz jet a while back and all the charts the pilots used were on an ipad. It looked efficient and I love this set up.
  7. What Chock said. I love the plane. I use Navigraph's chart ap on my ipad to help with the VOR to VOR navigation. It's fun. So much more to do than with the autopilot simulators everyone is flying... Colin Ware
  8. All, I discovered a pretty cool weather ap for you ipad users. It's called Ventusky and it delivers a pretty amazing visual representation of winds at multiple altitudes, air pressures, clouds and precip any where in the world, plus with forecasts. It is very easy to go to your destination, see the winds visually, check the pressure etc. And you can check in mid-flight to see if things are changing. Here in Colorado, they change quickly in the late afternoon with our notorious thunderstorms. I'ts $4 I think. Colin Ware (and I don't work for the developer or have any financial relationship - I was just really impressed and it doesn't come up early in the list of weather aps in the ap store)
  9. Wow, long time since I've seen Paul's name around this community. It was a sad day when Dreamfleet went away. I would pay a lot of money to have the three holder in p3d. What a wonderful airplane it was.
  10. https://www.pcworld.com/article/3252260/laptop-computers/origin-eon17-x-2017-review.html It would be nice to be relieved of the tyranny of the near endless upgrade requirements of PC flight simulation. I'd seriously consider something like this if offered by LM either as a stand alone way to use P3D, or through a service like the Nvidia one... Colin
  11. With the current cost of graphics cards, you should look at buying a system from a vendor like Cyber Power. It's actually cheaper right now to buy a system than build one with the crazy graphics card prices...
  12. I'll bet it's the auto save...I'll turn it off. I don't use it. Thanks for the note on the stand-by pfd - I need better glasses! Colin
  13. I don't think this is correct. The plane was originally developed in X-Plane, PMDGs first foray into that sim environment. It was always meant to be a commercial product, with plans to then port it over to the FSX ecosystem. Which is what happened. It took many years to develop. I urge viewing the many videos on You-Tube - especially Froogle's flights for folks having trouble with the plane. It is excellent. And, there is a dedicated DC6 PMDG forum where questions are answered quickly.
  14. Or not. Your criticism of the company feels unfair to me, since, for reasons not clear at all, you are unwilling to get your questions answered in the place where they are most likely to be answered quickly - the dedicated DC6 forum in the PMDG forums here at AVSIM. Instead, this post is broadly critical one implying that there is no support available, which, as above, is untrue. The reason any developer sets up a dedicated forum is so they don't have to spider through all the forums looking for posts. That is reasonable. They have thousands and thousands of costumers between all of their models.
