    Airport user or collector?

    Am i turning into an airport add-on collector? Well, i'm a rookie on Medium+ realism (bought p3d 4 months ago) and i have like 30+ add-on airports and practically all Europe and Oceania covered with sceneries. Most of them i buy to relive memories or fulfill my dream routes and neither memories nor dreams have the price. Since Since i only fly GA aircrafts (to avoid the fps bottleneck), visual quality is of great value to me and i always fly with Google maps turned on to additionally check the similarity to the real world. In the end, if you fly GA, airports are merely points where you start and end your flying, what really matters is the path from A to B, the weather you encounter, all the small details. Many times i try the VFR flying without navigation to see if my memory still serves me (try doing that in the Alps with ActiveSky turned on to see what i mean). This week i'm flying the NZ scenery (2-3 hours daily in the evening) and it's just awesome, last week i was doing France. Next week i'll fly Spain. It just never ends... So, no matter what the answer to the given question is and you feel bad about it, spend some time & money on GA aircrafts and sceneries (there's lots of great freeware too) and enjoy the view, it's worth it.

    EZDOK V3 - I like what I see

    Oh well, still using CP, since i've solved my zooming problem. Rocker switch on TWCS is way to sensitive (and cannot even be calibrated) so i chose hat switch (up/down) on T16000 joystick as my zoom control and now zoom is working great.

    EZDOK V3 - I like what I see

    Hey, thanks for all your comments, i'm glad EZDOK has the cycle ability, yet there's another question that rises and that is : Middle mouse button, do i have to use it in order to zoom the view in or out? I try to stay hotas only so no keyboard or mouse if not really necessary. I'd use the rocker switch on TWCS for zooming and left and right action buttons on top of T16000M joystick to cycle inner and outer views. That all works in CP, but due to the overly sensitive controls (or false zoom default value), even the slightest "zoom in" movement of the rocker on TWCS makes the view zoom to the max, making it useless to me. I'll try one more time today and then get EZDOK hoping it will be more forgiving.

    EZDOK V3 - I like what I see

    Since i'm having problems with zoom in/out functionality in CP i'm considering buying EZDOK. Does EZDOK support mapping more than one camera view onto the same button. I don't want to know a whole list of different keys for switching views, just want to use one button to cycle through inside and one for outside camera views. Thanks for your help.
  5. So simple and yet so hard. Haven't thought about it this way but it sure works the way you've explained it. Thanks a lot.
  6. Has anyone had any problems running P3D v4 from within EnvDir? If i start the P3d from desktop, trackir works, but when i do it from within the EnvDir, the second TrackIr light doesn't light up resulting in not having the tracking functionality in P3D. Haven't found anything on web so this looks like a problem of mine only?? Thanks for any ideas what i did wrong.
  7. I know it's not directly connected to P3D. I've just discovered free Little NavMap flight-planning tool and wanted to "improve elevation data" only to discover that GLOBE elevation data is currently unavailable. Hope this is due to the (temporary) US government shutdown [lapse in appropriation]? Can someone legally share his downloaded copy of GLOBE data? Knowing Trump, this shutdown can last for quite some time... Thanks for info, Andrej EDIT : There's already an answer in the dedicated AVSim forum, sorry for bothering. Hoping shutdown won't last long.

    Spanish and italian vfr sceneries maybe??

    Well, i've just tried the flight from LIPQ to LIPZ and was amazed that it looked better than with default scenery (ok, Orbx Trees do look better than photolayer, but you can't have it all). With default Orbx Europe my FPS was twice lower than with Photoreal Italy installed (sceneries 122-130 + autogen). I'll download the whole scenery and hope for miracle in Dolomiti region regarding quality of graphics. Oh, it's so easy to make a rookie happy , isn't it?

    Something like Dolomiti 3d for XPlane11 would be just perfect...

    Yeah, and i've just started, so i'm VFR only at the moment. There is autogen, but you don't notice it anyway from high above. To be honest, after watching few YT videos, AirHispania scenery seems much more (autogen) populated and crispier (it's 3x the size of Italy scenery).

    Didn't know that there's also autogen available for this photolayer. Hope that it's p3dv4 compatible, instructions PDF only mentions p3dv2. Keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks.

    My assumption was wrong, AirHispania SCX package is an addition to the default scenery, 3d airport objects and much more, so it's worth installing it too. Kudos to Fran Garrido and the whole team behind Air Hispania package.

    Now that i've got the Spanish scenery covered, it would be great if Italy had something similar too. Eagerly awaiting new info....

    I guess i could use the autogen by AirHispania to populate the Megascenery, but AH photo layer is quite sufficient so i'm gonna save 100$ for now and maybe later decide for the payware. Thanks guys for the info shared, i guess it won't be me only to start using this beatiful scenery. Alvaro, i'll stick with AH scenery, since it's one or the other and all of the airports are already in AH. Anyway, i'm enjoying it immensely.

    Installed the Asturias and Cantabria sceneries, made a short trip from LEMR to LEXJ and it was is great. LEMR runway is a bit displaced, but other three airports that i flew by were correctly positioned. Now i'm off to down-under land to enjoy the NZ countryside. BIG THANK YOU for sharing the info.
