  1. Are your Chaseplane settings pointing to your P3Dv5 folder, I had problems when I upgraded from P3Dv3 to P3Dv4 - Chaseplane was still pointing to P3Dv3. At the time I was using both until the full transition to v4(assuming you have/had P3Dv4 on your system)
  2. The F50 is currently on Sale 40% off At Simmarket https://secure.simmarket.com/flysimware-falcon-50.phtml
  3. Here you go Karl https://www.littlenavmap.org/downloads/Aircraft Performance/
  4. I use Little Navmap for all my IFR flights in Prepa3d v4.5 and Xplane 11 using the PMDG737ngx and Zibo 737. A really good feature is the ability to add SID and STAR procedures directly to the plan giving a pictorial representation of your route, which can easily be changed during flight to suit the weather conditions. It connects to your Sim during flight allowing flight tracking and TOD is indicated. Several aircraft performance files are available for download, including the Zibo 737 (which can be edited for the NGX.). It also reads airports Afcad files showing parking positions and taxiways, which is good for deciding on a flight starting gate and taxi route. The various aircraft formats the flightplan can be exported to is immense, even saves and sends routes to the F1 GTN750. IMO far better than PFPX, has regular updates and new features added and uses the Navigraph AIRAC or stored Sim Nav data for planning. A big bonus is that it's free.
  5. Lodge a ticket with Carenado, they're pretty good with support.
  6. Aerosoft have one for FSX and Prepar3d here: https://www.aerosoft.com/en/flight-simulation/flight-simulator-x-steam/aircraft/1767/twin-otter-extended?number=AS12679
  7. Al, I have no problems using Firefox to post, have you disabled the inbuilt tracker in Firefox? I've found I need to do this when making payments for purchases on websites, somehow the tracker blocks the transaction going ahead. I have it disabled for Avsim. Steve
  8. When FS2004 was the latest release, I spent a lot of time flying the LevelD 767, the fully fubctional FMC was a game changer, I can't recall any of the other categories you list as having any memorable releases that stuck in my mind
  9. Ryan, I've never owned any Apple products so can't comment on those, I have used a 2 in 1 windows 10 netbook tablet for portability - good for travel and holidays, it had 64gig EEC memory that was capable of running Photoshop and AffinityPhoto, the processor was good enough to allow me to use my preferred paint kits, but the smaller screen didn't allow for accurate detail. For this I just saved it and copied the project over to my laptop or desktop PC for completion.
  10. Ryan, I've been painting for about 15 years, not so much now as I don't have the time. I started out watching any and all video tutorials on youtube on the subject. I have used most versions of Photoshop but now find AffinityPhoto as my preferred software, does everything PS does and you buy it not rent it like PS, offers great support and regularly updated. It costs about $50, last time I looked.The easiest aircraft paintkits I've found are PMDG, Qualitywings, Majestic Q400, the hardest are Aerosoft and Carenado as they don't come with full length fuselage sides which makes it easier to cut and paste to each part of the aircraft sides. You'll need to have a good understanding of the various graphics formats like DDS,DXT,BMP, JPEG and how to convert between them and using Layers, as well as orientating each part in the painkit to the actual finished product which can get complicated. Alpha channels come into play for night time and metalic textures and shines . A good starting point is to paint textures for AI aircraft, they offer a much simpler paintkit, give you a good working knowledge of software and how to work back to front from paintkit to finished product and what you need to do to get to that point. Hope this helps, Steve
  11. Check that the texture .cfg file for this paint has this in it [fltsim] fallback.1=..\texture.common and that the 'texture.Common' folder exists in the aircraft root folder.
  12. OBS Studio (Freeware) to record and HandBrake (also Freeware) to reduce MP4 file size without loss of quality. Also good for reducing Shadowplay and Geforce file sizes.)
