  1. Hello

    Has anyone else’s either natively or via a third parts add-on etc. managed to find a way to establish a new IFR flight plan via the in-game ATC without needing to go back to the main menu every time.

    I used to be able to fly 2-3 sectors and upon landing set up the next leg whilst refuelling etc. I use sim brief w/ Navigraph etc. with the PMDG 737.

    I’m aware I can do this without the ATC but it’s a bit of an immersion killer for me not being able to interact with them (as it actually seems to behave fairly well for me using simbrief plans) and even worse when I have to go back to the main menu and re-position my aircraft at the same parking stand w/ loaded FMC status etc. + the next flight plan leg.

    Any tips would be very welcome.

  2. Just wondering if anyone could tell me whether installing Rex Texture Direct (with soft clouds) and/or Worldwide Airports HD is worth installing in v5.

    I purchased both a while back and haven't migrated to v5 yet. Thing is, the sea, advanced atmospherics and some other textures are already in improved in v5 out of the box, so curious to know if installing Rex will kind of just get 'in the way' now?

    Thanks for any advice.

    I just did a full reinstall of P3D v5 HF1, installed my addons. I try to load ORBX TrueEarth GB with Aerosoft Hearthrow and it is stuck on loading. 

    Does anyone has this problem?

    I do. It’s generally slower to load, but this evening I timed it and it took 45 mins to load Aerosoft Heathrow with ORBX TE installed. Seems to stick at 72% ‘Adjusting Scenery Objects’. When it eventually did load, it looked great, FPS okay, taxied for 2 mins and it hung (not CTD) but I had to End Task. Very frustrating.

    Other airports load quicker but I still get it hanging periodically.

    Looks like Lorby-SI has a workaround/fix for this issue. Don't know how much kudos should be given to LM though, this is an even rockier launch than V4 for sure.

    Yeah I used Lorby’s very quickly developed patch. Worked a treat.

    Think I’ll have the weekend off this and see what people think next week. It’s very odd.

    I can't seem to get my sim to run at all when addons are installed. I'm at a loss. This is after a complete reinstall.

    Same here.

    didnt have any problems at all pre-hotfix.

    Since then, and overcoming the .xml description issue. It just crashes again again again. Rarely loads any add-on airports instead just hanging on like ~70%

    my FPS was lower on the rare occasion it did load. I am totally baffled.

    Kudos to LM on v5 overall as pre-hotfix my performance was great VRAM aside but something has gone very wrong for me.

  6. I am currently mid-download of P3D v5, upgrading from 4.5 like most.

    I am contemplating a shift from MyTraffic to UTL (Not particularly displeased with MYT but the aircraft models were feeling a bit tired).

    My question is, does UT support the ability to create new flights? The website doesn't list it, but I remember a very old version did. I can't gain access to the support forums until i've purchased annoyingly.

    Just don't want to waste £30. I am taking the punt that compatibility with V5 will be trivial.
