  1. How about a sub sub-forum for leaves and branches? Lon Duncombe
  2. I'd prefer they fix their DC-3 first. I got sucked in by the graphics and ended up paying big bucks for a model that requires Ctrl E to start, lol. Their service pack made things worse. Lon Duncombe
  3. I am very disappointed in this. Very buggy, Sim crashes when I try to start, sounds of various switches that go on forever, the starting sequence is not true to the actual dc-3. Gorgeous graphics, but that's about it. Lon Dunccombe
  4. I am a (temporary) refugee from P3D. About a month ago I bought the F18 for DCS. WOW. I'm not worried about the combat sim aspect, 'm just trying to learn how to land that sucker on the carrier. DCS is easy to load and run, high FPS, magnificent textures and no crashes. The F18 is study level to the nth degree. A nice, challenging change. Lon Duncombe
  5. When I get frustrated with P3D and my neverending quest to get all my addons to play nice I switch to DCS for a break. I know DCS is primarily a combat sim with limited scenery but the modelling is superb, fluid and error free and I find enough of a challenge just to master the various aircraft.. I've spent the last month trying to land their study level F-18 on an aircraft carrier. Very immersive. DCS has never crashed on me in over 4 years. Lon Duncombe
  6. Ah. yeah dude, it gets pretty grey in these parts this time of year, just like the image you provided. It's called winter :) Lon Duncombe CYOW
  7. Yup, I'm getting the same problem. I basically end up taxiing without brakes. Brake settings are common to both my PMDG 747-700 and the -8 via FSUIPC and I do not have this problem with the 400 so imho it would appear to be software related. Lon Duncombe
  8. I use the PMDG DC-6. It has the cargo capacity of a 737 plus you have all those engines to manage. Great fun. Lon Duncombe
  9. My understanding is that the bitcoin miners are going to snap up those new cards and drive the prices up as they did with the 10x0 series, which is why I didn't wait.
  10. I have a 8700K at stock speeds with 16 gig 3200 RAM. My previous setup was a 4790K ASUS Z97 with the 980Ti and I found that I was redlining both the GPU and CPU in terms of load and temperature. No problem with either one now. I fly PMDG level aircraft with Orbx scenery. I've never been happier. I took the FSlabs A-320 for a spin tonight, and it felt like the real deal. I could not have done that with my previous setup. Lon Duncombe
  11. I made the switch a couple of weeks ago. I have a 40" 4K monitor and noticed a big difference in smoothness and fps. Lon Duncombe
  12. I actually find that FS 2 runs much worse now that I traded my TRS-80 in for a Tandy 1000. Sublogic should never have sold out to Microsoft. MS-DOS 2.11 sucks 😞 Lon Duncombe
  13. I sent this email to Kevin last Tuesday with no response. I would like to find an answer, if anyone could help me Hi Kevin: I recently did a reinstall of Windows and P3Dv4. I downloaded and started Chaseplane in Stable mode. When it informed me Stable mode did not support P3Dv4 I switched to experimental mode and restarted chase plane. Now it progresses to the initialization screen and freezes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Chaseplane and rebooted windows but no luck. Chaseplane remains frozen at the initialization stage. Any suggestions? Best Lon Duncombe
