    P3Dv4.4 night time flying

    Thank you so much for this (MOON_PHASE_LIGHTING=False), this is what I was looking/hoping for because even with HDR/Dynamic on and with all lights off I can still see inside the plane and the runway with the default taxi lights and taxi to the runways. No longer diaspointed 🙂 I don't think that this is a P3D issue because night is night and they've done a beautiful job of it, but more the fact that hardly no planes are configured or made for v4.4 and example of that is my alabeo PA-31's VC light that doesn't even work and the Landing/Taxi light are basically useless with 4.4. Another example is Carenado's C206H which does have a VC light and was able to somewhat see the interior but again the brightness is not adjustable. But now this is very acceptable with disabling the moon phase lighting. Developers will now need to implement an adjustable VC light like what Milviz has done with RealLight in the 310R. With ChasePlane that would be ideal, set the camera to where you want the VC light and set and adjust.

    P3Dv4.4 night time flying

    yea exactly, leave the outside in v4.4 as it is but have a "time preview" like setting for the VC illumination. No I think that the outside dark is fine and I could fly with that but it literally bleeds into the interior VC with no option or ability to light the VC in any way which is not realistic at all. I truly don't want to be on any GA plane where the pilot can't see the trim, the quadrant, runway or knobs from start to finish.

    P3Dv4.4 night time flying

    I was just now following someone on twitch at dusk and they simply switched it to dawn. With other night time 4.4 streamers you are basically looking at a mostly black screen. I have to say that I'm quite disappointed since I really like flying at night 😞 Thing is, with reality aside XP night time is looking so much better.

    Moving Map required for use with P3D v3.4

    Yea I know it's a tad old, but I though google pulled the plug on their api, I just stumbled on it doing searches and I also use LNM but it doesn't use the google map view which was one of your requirements and you also mentioned payware or freeware. Maybe someone else would be interested, are you sure that were talking about fsxmap.com ? I don't see any subs requirement.

    There's dark and there's black, when you spend 15 minutes looking for the master to switch the lights on and then can't see the quadrant or some knobs with lights at max it's a tad to much. I like what they did but at least give us some sort of VC light with an adjustment.

    Moving Map required for use with P3D v3.4

    I'm quite sure that FSXmap now does this over Google maps, just filter out the airports and your set.

    First reactions to P3Dv4.4

    If you are talking about the default F-16c then yes it's working for me.

    First reactions to P3Dv4.4

    I did this but also deleted the "temp" directories and it was CTD but found out that the REX/Milviz radar was the culprit so if you have a 310R redux just don't load the wx default yet. Even at the default medium settings Orbx is impressive. Also I didn't change anything and my default fsx C172, B58 and King Air still work if anyone still uses that.
  9. The Grand Caravan for $10.50 is quite a deal. Any recommendations on the Baron 58 - Carenado or Milviz ?
  10. I have my list ready 🙂 Edit: just make sure you remove the disk backup to get the price shown.

    Reality XP Thanksgiving Sale

    Here's a few thing you might want to consider. I never use them integrated into the aircraft, so if (like me) you are planning to use it undocked and move them to a second monitor then the XP probably is the better choice for $35 since if I'm correct you get 2xpanels so 2 x 750 The other thing is that I'm not sure anymore if the garmin trainer is built into the Flight1 or the XP versions or if you still have to manually install the garmin trainer. On the original F1 GTN page they say that it comes with the Trainer v6.21 Databases cycle 1607 while XP says v6.50 with Databases cycle 1803 which is good. I don't see F1's new page what Trainer version or Database cycle is included. But from what I understand they both use the same data however I'd wish that F1 wold mention it on their page. Personally If you are flying P3D I would take a wait and see for who is going to support v4.4 and by the looks of it it's going to be XP. Edit: I stand corrected by the looks of it according to their forum the F1 GTN now works in v4.4 with the 1803 cycle.

    are you looking at the Store, it doesn't show it there but at the RXP home.

    when it says "2 devices per panel" does that mean you can get 1x530 and 1x430 or 2x530 only ?

    I have a noob question which I can't seem to find, can the RXP GNS530 talk to the G1000 for example. Let's say I have an G1000 aircraft and have the GNS530 v2 installed and make a flight plan or import a flight plan into the GNS530 will that same flight plan show up on the G1000 ?

    P3Dv4 aircraft recommendations

    I've recently been flying a modified Milviz 310R as a trainer and it's the nicest GA plane I have ever seen to date, IMHO it's crazy over torqued but with the modification I made it's an absolute relaxing gem to fly at night. Very High Quality check. Highly realistic flight dynamics triple check. Realistic Bendix KAP-140 autopilot check On par and/or even higher than A2A, check. Dual Piston, check Rality XP GNS and GTN750 ready check. Built and included REX/Milviz WX advantage Radar, check. Night Cockpit with Real Light and True Glass check
