  1. You are so right and I apologize as I did not mean to be dismissive of our friends to the north (or the south for that matter) and I should have said: those of us between 60* and 150* W. Longitude are most affected.๐Ÿ˜‰ Or: Those of us living in parts of Alaska, Canada, Mexico, South America as well as some parts of Africa and both Artic Circles.
  2. Actually, since it's always at the same time, it really only IS prime time in one time zone. I'm on the west coast of the US so it affects me right in the middle of the afternoon. Certainly those of us in the US are much more affected (on average) than those in other parts of the world many of whom are likely sleeping or already into their third pint ๐Ÿ˜‰and really couldn't care less about live weather. ๐Ÿ˜‚
  3. I start cold and dark every flight and for me it is just the parking brake alarm. I fly Mugz mod FWTW.
  4. Yes, this is a problem and has been discussed a lot. If not here then over on the "other" forum. I think it affects the CJ4 as well but not sure. Don't know if they're working on a hotfix but it would be nice if they'd fix it quickly.
  5. Hi all, I just wanted to post up here to let any of you that are thinking about getting into using a tablet with your sim (or any other need for one) I found a great buy this morning at Micro Center for this 10.1" tablet and I bought 2 of them. I now need to learn how to integrate into the sim. These originally sold for $160 so at $49.99 they are a bargain and they have very good online reviews as well. The only drawback is you need to buy in the store only, no online orders for these. https://www.microcenter.com/product/638516/vankyo-matrixpad-z10-gray
  6. Yes this was fixed some time ago and I mostly fly the TBM and have not had any problems with this bug since the initial fix. In fact yours is the first I've heard of it resurfacing. Although if I recall the initial bug was that it would zero the throttle and not actually shut down the engines and a quick throttle touch and they came back to where they were prior to the ESC key being pressed. I could be mis-remembering though.
  7. Add me to the list. I've not been able to complete a flight for three days. Come to think of it, that's been since the last Hotfix (or maybe it was a Hotmess?).
  8. His reaction at the end reminds me of exactly how I act when I'm able to get the sim to load properly and complete a flight. Any flight. ๐Ÿ˜
  9. I'm using Mugz mod and I can assure you it is working with SU5. 0.6.0beta1 I also had the Azure speech services disconnect last night and it was awful. First time I've heard those voices and yes, all I could imagine was that the kids in the tower were all looking for a tube of Clearasil.
  10. Hey Pepper, no I've not seen this but after watching this scene I went looking for it. I found another trailer on IMDB and now I must search out the full film. Looks fantastic and with some of the all-time greatest rockers ever providing the music for the sound track. Looking forward to seeing it. And yes on the avatar, if yours is the "before", mine is definitely the "after".
  11. Flew about an hour ago from Pensacola to Atlanta (KPNS-KATL) and on approach at Atlanta there were more in flight aircraft than I've ever seen. I think it's working again along with the PG. Obviously they were having some server/data issues.
  12. I'm wondering if some of the responses in this thread regarding "Multiplayer" are confusing the two separate options for turning multiplayer on and off. First there is the Multiplayer option under the Data menu in the General Options menu. This is what will connect/disconnect you to/from the servers. Then there is the Multiplayer options under the Flight Conditions menu accessed from the World Map. Options are either Live Players, All Players or Off. If you have the Multiplayer turned Off in the Data menu (as mentioned above) then this option will be grayed out in the Flight Conditions menu. Some of the responses here I think maybe conflating the two.
  13. That almost sounds like: "Badges...........we don't need no stinkin' badges!" ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
  14. Agreed. Anybody flying the TBM without this mod is not having (as much) fun. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  15. There's always the "flashlight" which acts more like a headlamp. It is on by default at night when first starting cold and dark and then goes off when you turn on the battery/alt I believe. I have added it to one of my Bravo switches to toggle on/off.
