  1. To add to the above, I think the first picture is actually an iteration of the 73 model (but cant really say whether I prefer the 73 or the 79 to be honest, they are both really good looking)πŸ˜„
  2. A bit of an odd one but I do think the Savoia-Marchetti S.M. 79 is the best looking one (or at least one of the better looking ones) 😊
  3. I think the DC-3 from Aeroplane Heaven is actually for free now on Orbx (together with the rest of their lineup)! πŸ™‚
  4. Some "other" recommendations (to spice things up) : Majestic Dash 8 Q400, Just Flight Bae 146, Coolsky DC-9, PMDG DC-6 and the Aerosoft DC-8. All of these planes work well in P3Dv5 and provide a lets say different experience than the usual Boeing and/or Airbus experience πŸ™‚
  5. Their "Vice President & 3D Modeler" (Lars) seems to have quit back in 2019 (based on his linkedin profile). I couldnt find anyone else with "Qualitywings" as their current job on their linkedin so I presume it might actually be the end of the road.
  6. I doubt that KSJC it will actually require any of those products to function. My guess is that worst case you will just have to turn of a BGL file or similar. I would however recommend the North Californa True Earth Scenery. I absolutely love it even though it is a bit red but nothing immersion breaking according to me.πŸ™‚ Only problem is that once you go photoreal + autogen you never want to go back (now I have a super hard time with the Orbx LC areas because of how blocky it looks).
  7. Nice thread and really interesting to see the large variety in what people work with. I am a corporate tax lawyer myself and will probably continue to work with that for the foreseeable future. Apart from that, my secondary day-job is ensuring that both my wife and my two dogs (Rottweiler plus a Staffordshire bullterier) are happy and well taken care off. Hopefully there will also be some children down the line in the not too distant future to take care of. πŸ™‚
  8. Instead of the Skysimulations DC-9, I recommend that you purchase the Coolsky/Flight1 DC-9 package that is far superior in terms of system depth and realism (and also contains the MD80, even though the graphics for the MD80 arent the best). πŸ™‚ The CLS DC-10 works great in P3D5.4, please have a look at this thread for a great "improvement package" for that plane (which also fixes the sound problem):
  9. If you want to fix this issue put the special effects slider all the way to the left. I have not had a single issue after doing that. πŸ™‚
  10. Thank you for your input! Yeah I noticed that too on their product description but good to hear such good feedback on the Skalarki MCDU! I think I will get the Skalarki one first and then potentially a bit later a Boeing one from Aerosoft or somewhere else! πŸ™‚
  11. Thank you Regis for the input! Yeah the airbuses I fly is mainly the FSLabs airbuses (P3D), the Aerosoft A330 (P3D) and the Toliss A340 (Xplane 12) so was hoping that maybe the Skalarki MCDU would be a good option. I think it is right now my no. 1 airbus MCDU option so reassuring to hear that it works well! In relation to the software that you need for the MCDU, do you need to continue to subscribe to that or is it sufficient with the one time purchase? I assume that you can purchase the maintenance software thing for 12 months whenever you feel like you need a driver update? Or am I mistaken? πŸ™‚
  12. Seems like the unblock option is not really possible in this case then unfortunately. But really weird that you cannot start the application, try the captain sim forum (saw some suggestions there that you might want to try!). πŸ™‚
  13. Some nice addons (apart from the ones already mentioned) that I can recommend include: - FSUIPC - for setting up your control profiles - GSX - for nice groundhandling - AIG Traffic Manager/Controller - for AI traffic - FS global - for the best mesh - MatthiasKNU photoreal and autogen scenery (free) - this is even better than ORBX but demands quite a bit of storage space. - RAAS professional - for aural smart landing and smart runway calls - Envshade/Envplus/Envsound - for better immersion and visuals - TFDI Pacx - for passenger announcements, etc. In terms of aircraft addons (mainly airlines since I prefer to fly that) the ones I can recommend are (not exhaustive list): - The whole PMDG lineup - Aerosoft A330, CRJ series and DC-8 - FSlabs Airbuses - Leonardo Maddog (MD82, MD83, etc.) - Majestic Dash 8 Q400 - Ifly 737Max - QW 787 - TFDI 717 - Just Flight Bae 146 - Coolsky DC-9 - KAI31 TU134 - Fishbed Mig-21 Extended edition
  14. Some things you can try to do: Right click your start button and select Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated Command prompt. In Command prompt type sfc /scannow and press enter. Restart your computer after this and try ACE. Another thing is to download the latest .NET framework. If you miss any of these files, this could potentially stop you from starting applications. A final thing to try is to open the file properties of the relevant file and press "unblock" (sometimes certain files can be blocked automatically for strange reasons). Hopefully one of the above suggestions can help you fix your issue.
