  1. Hi guys, I am currently planning my flights with onlineflightplanner.org. I can use the option "Use SIDs" and "Use STARS" there. This tool uses RouteFinder and RouteFinder describes, that the two respective endpoints of the route are points where SIDs end and STARs should begin. Is that correct so far? What is the further procedure then? I would now choose the runways according to the wind direction and use the FMS to select a matching SID and STAR. Can I normally find suitable SIDs and STARs in the database? How would you do this? greetings, Chris
  2. Hello dear avsimers, Luckily I was able to purchase X-Plane for a price reduction of 40% on Steam. Full of expectations, I immediately adjusted all the settings for my setup. Of course, I also activated the Vulkan API. After a few flights in the well-made Cessna 172 Skyhawk, I took a flight with the Default 737. During the climb, the game froze. The game no longer responded to input but had to be canceled via the task manager. It's about version 11.52r1. I've read that many other users also have problems with the new update. The next time I tried to take the flight, It always cached at nearly the same point inflight. After resuming the memory status before the crash, I was then able to experience the device loss bug in the Vulkan-API. I have to say that I have a new PC at the start. I uninstalled Northon Antivirus on it. I also switched off the AI flight display. After I switched to OpenGL, there were no more freezes. At least one flight so far. All in all, I have to say that I am a little disappointed with X-Plane 11 and Laminar Research. As a newcomer to X-Plane, I no longer have any real confidence in the software. I have never experienced such crashes with FSX. I think it's a shame to be forced to only use X-Plane with OpenGL, since the main feature of the new release is precisely the Vulkan-API. I am also not that convinced of LR's communication with users. like the look of the game very much and the Default 737 and the Cessna 172 are great. That must be said. I also like the graphics very much. I hope that LR will bring out a more stable version again in the future, because in addition to MSFS2020, X-Plane is worth a change. Unfortunately, I cannot invest a cent in add-ons because I simply have no confidence in the software anymore. Best regards Chris
  3. Hello Willy and Aldridgem for you replies! I think I will give it a try. 🙂 best regards Chris
  4. Hello guys, how are you? I'm thinking of switching to P3D. Specifically version 5. Now I am wondering whether the simulator is running on my gaming laptop. Specifications: Intel Core i7-10750H 16 GB DDR4-2666 RAM 512GB PCI-Express-NVMe-SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti 6 GB GDDR6 VRAM The specifications also states DirectX 12 with feature level 12_0 or greater https://www.prepar3d.com/system-requirements/ With my graphics card, I'm not sure whether it supports that. Of course, I also ask myself whether I can play the simulator reasonably at high settings. best regards Chris 😉
