    P3D 4.2 - Anything Incompatible?

    SimpleCam doesn't work with 4.2.

    FSL for V4.2 Tomorrow

    My finger keeps hovering over the 'buy' button of the FSL A320. I've still got xmas money burning a hole in my pocket. I'll keep an eye on how the update improves things.

    Keep Windows 7 or move to Windows 10

    I use Win10. I have orbx, pmdg, captainsim, pro atc x, pilot2atc, pfpx, majestic, gsx, simplecam, pta, fsrealtime (I've probably forgotten something). No problems at all.

    4.2 Update

    This is a great video on how to do it: Start watching at 12 mins.

    Captain Sim 757-200

    I've had VNAV issues too. Once it sent me down at 6000 fpm (fun for the passengers!). Another time I disabled it while being vectored on approach. Held at 4000ft, set MCP to 2500ft (as per next FMC waypoint), engaged VNAV and...started to climb! I won't be using VNAV on descent/approach until the next patch comes out. It's probably the biggest flaw right now, but still a nice plane to have.

    Prepar3D v4.2 has been released

    If FSLabs knew that 4.2 was imminent (and they did know as they delayed releasing their A320 patch) then there's no excuse for other devs.

    Prepar3D v4.2 has been released

    I can live without DL. Active Sky has an update out. But no SimpleCam is a real PITA.

    Prepar3D v4.2 has been released

    Did all that. No improvement. No dynamic lighting is double FPS compared to dynamic lighting activated. Disappointing, but I can live with it.

    Prepar3D v4.2 has been released

    Just loaded up the PMDG 737 at EGCC at dusk. Dynamic lighting performance is no better than 4.1. Also unhappy that PTA, ActiveSky and SimpleCam aren't working with 4.2. Will revert to 4.1 until everyone catches up.

    What's the best setting for mesh resolution

    I think you mean m, not cm, for mesh resolution. Bert is correct for Orbx, but I have issues at 5m with some airports (possibly due to FreemeshX). Setting to 10m or 1m overcomes these issues. I don’t notice any performance impact as settings change.

    P3D V4 Freezing and Crash

    If its only happening with the PMDG 747, you'd be better off posting in their forum where the PMDG team hang out.

    Captain Sim 757-200

    I don't think there's been anything official, but from their webpage: "The first member of the family is the 757-2PW BASE PACK" which implies there will be more to come. They did the 300 and freighter for the old 757, so I reckon they'll happen sometime (soon hopefully as I quite like freight ops).

    PTA vs REX

    PTA allows you to alter the shaders in P3D. REX is a set of textures (for ground and weather). They are both quite different and can be used together. Neither are needed as such. I use PTA but not REX. Have a look at this PTA vid. And there's a big thread on weather here.
