  1. I’m back with PTA after cheating on you with envshade for a few months, please accept my apologies lol. Now I’m wondering why my eyes even wandered. I love your preset, and I see that you recommend HDR off. Looks great! But I accidentally found that if I enable it and use Gerard’s HDR settings it looks even better in my eyes. My question is, what are the benefits of turning HDR off when using your preset and will I be missing anything? Thanks!
  2. I just wish somebody, anybody, would do a proper bizjet. And I'm not talking about the little toys either. But in the meantime I'd settle for a BBJ version of the PMDG 737 (with fuel tanks).

    737 Internal Sounds Stop

    Just a thought, but have you tried pushing "Q" twice?

    747F Engine Failure

    I lost all my engines on final once, and it took me a little while to figure it out. Somehow, P3D mapped fuel cutoff to my FSUIPC mapped gear down button. You might want to make sure you don’t have an unexpected mapping issue.
  5. I should also mention, for me this phenomenon is very rare.
  6. I have seen that same issue (2nd one) in the 747 and 777, all models, so I don’t think that it is aircraft specific. In fact I had it on Saturday in the 77W. It only happens when I try grease a landing instead of properly flying it onto the runway. I wouldn’t be surprised if it is some sort of P3D limitation or something. As long as I don’t try and impress my passengers, it’s all good...

    Exterior Views

    Thank you Keven 👍🏻
  8. My exterior view has suddenly changed to inside of the cargo hold, on all aircraft and in all views. I can’t pan or move the camera at all. Any suggestions? Uninstalled/reinstalled, reset everything to defaults. Tried deleting and creating new camera presets. Issue still persists.

    Auto-Pilot is NOT Engaging

    I’ve had the force feedback 2 joystick as well. And I see exactly what is happening. He has disconnected the power cord that provides the force feedback and resistance to the joystick. So now the joystick will freely move and flop around without any resistance. He will never get the auto pilot to engage because he cannot find the center with any reliability. There is no return to center at all. If you want to continue to use the joystick you should invest in FS force. It’s a fantastic program and combined with the joystick the experience in the Sim is really nice. I’m actually considering going back to the joystick because it is that enjoyable.

    Auto-Pilot is NOT Engaging

    Do you by chance have a force feedback joystick? Your comment about having the yoke pulled back in the climb is a clue why you can’t engage. That is not normal. Your yoke/joystick should be nearly centered soon after takeoff (if trimmed properly). Disabling the centering function on your joystick will prevent you from engaging the autopilot. I am quoting from experience.
  11. I’m glad to see it isn’t just me.
  12. I saved, exited, updated, repaired liveries, and then reloaded. No issues.
  13. I just updated over the Pacific. Call me impatient I guess....
  14. I saw this too This morning I was fooling with the payload to get under a TO weight restriction. The GW kept rising, and rising, and rising. There was no way to get it down, even after going to empty. This was in the -8. I haven't checked it since the update today.
