  1. Happy Belated Birthday to AVSIM! Turned 21 yesterday! Wishing AVSIM many more!!
  2. Hi everyone, I'm quite new to the forums, therefore I would like to apologize in advanced if this subject is posted in the wrong thread. I'm in a bit of a bind here. My dad's credit card that I use for online purchases has been blocked because someone had created a Simmarket account using my email to purchase an addon. Luckily it was only one item. However, this is still a very serious matter as the perpetrator may purchase more things under my email in the future. Do any of you guys know of any way to contact the Simmarket team via email or forums? I want to resolve this issue as fast as I can. Thanks.

  8. Removing Followers

    Just to let everyone know, I have removed the listing of followers for the Main Topics, like Hangar Chat, P3D Forum, FSX Forum, etc., and not to specific threads in those forums. It appears our upgrade earlier this year might have somehow corrupted this notification. For instance, in the FSX Forum, I found 189 followers but, when I clicked on the followers, it showed only 30 names and at the bottom, only 16 others (which does not add up to 189). Of course, many of them might have indicated they did not want others to know they were following but many of those following were old registrations and the math did not add up so decided to start fresh. We had a possible glitch with our notification system and want to make sure this was not the issue. It also slows down our system when e-mails are sent to e-mail addresses that no longer exist. This is just in the AVSIM Forums and not in the Commercial Forums (may be visited in the future). So, members might want to go to each main forum and indicate whether you want to follow every topic and thread in that particular forum. I personally would recommend you just follow individual topics inside a Forum. Apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
  9. Please help me welcome the latest member to the AVSIM Moderating Team - Marcel Durieux. Marcel works at the University of Virginia and has been a flight simulation enthusiast for about 20 years. He flies mostly high-realism (PMDG and A2A) aircraft in FSX. He is currently the Assistant Chief Pilot for the B737 program at Air France | KLM Virtual Airlines a member at AVSIM since December 2013. Welcome Marcel. Hope you enjoy your times as a Moderator! Best regards, Jim
  10. AVSIM does not currently host image posting via the attachment system so you will have to link your image from a 3rd party hosting provider such as Photobucket, ImageShack, Google, OneDrive, Imgur, or, the one I use FS - Most services provide 5GB's or more of free space to upload your images. Once you upload your image to a hosting provider, the image should have a box in one of the corners that you can check. Once checked, you should be given the option to "get an embed code". Click on that and it will offer HTML embed codes or BBCodes embed codes. AVSIM uses the BBCode system so click on the "BBCode embed' and a link should appear (if not, check with your hosting provider on procedures for obtaining an embed code). Copy the link and then go to your post or topic and paste the link into the topic. You can also choose to link to the file on one of the hosting services too. In that case, the image will now show up on AVSIM and members will be sent to the hosting site to view the image. Your image will not appear until you click on reply or submit topic. If you want to edit the post or topic after you have replied or posted a new topic, you can edit it for up to two hours. If, after two hours, you want further edits, you will have to click on the "Report" button and tell our moderators what action you want taken. One of our members has posted a more detailed explanation in the Screenshot Forum here on AVSIM that may help you if you are still having problems posting an image - Make sure images comply with our Screen Shot Rules - Pages/screen_shot_rules.html/ If you continue to have problems posting an image, please use the Contact Form under the 'Contact Us' tab at the top of the AVSIM Forums.
  11. You can edit your topic title and contents of your post up to 2 hours after you have posted the topic/post. After that, if you want to make any changes to the topic/post, please use the report button in the topic or post you made and a moderator will assist.
  12. Freeware Product List

    Hello @ll, here is a list of the freeware Lorby products. All these are available on the main Lorby website: "Lorby Live Traffic" (FSX/P3D) The LorbyLiveTraffic (LLTX) is an external App that will inject real-time, real-world traffic into your sim. Please check out the release thread about LLTX in this forum for details: "Addon Organizer for Prepar3D V4" (for P3D V4 and V3) A simple app to help you manage your addons by using the recommended procedure based on XML files. You can add, remove, edit, sort your scenery and other addons, no matter where they reside (scenery.cfg or add-on.xml files). "Lorby Time Machine" (FSX/P3D) This small app will automatically speed up the simulation rate between the waypoints of your flight plan, and slow down at each waypoint so the autopilot can make the turn and catch up with the route. "Lorby Radar Screen (LRS) and Data provider" (FSX/P3D) The Radar Screen is an external App that shows your current position and the position of various other objects on a radar scope or a map of your choice. Those maps are actually background pictures that you can load into the app yourself, and it contains an automated downloader for Google Static Maps (Note: if you don't have a Google Static Maps API key, you are limited to one download every time that this app is run). The Radar Screen taps into the multiplayer protocols of the included Data Provider app, FireFighter X, CropDuster X or AiTracker X. When used with the Data Provider it will only show AI traffic, when used with the other apps, it will show for example the fires and the fields. It can run on the same machine as the source app or on a remote (Windows) computer. The communication between the Lorby Apps is a proprietary protocol, so you don't have to fiddle with remote SimConnect clients at all. You can choose to use your own charts as background pictuers - once you have them correctly aligned geographically, the LRS will accurately track your aircraft's position on that chart. If used like this, you will know exactly where you are on that SID or STAR and you are able to read all information off the real chart, not one compiled from simulator scenery. I have put videos about it on Youtube: "ThumbnailExporterX" (FSX/P3D) This app generates a HTML report of all the aircraft that you have installed in FSX or P3D using their thumbnails and aircraft.cfg information. "Mission Report" (FSX/P3D) This app generates a HTML report of all the missions / scenarios that you have installed in FSX or P3D. And a few smaller apps - X-Plane preferences manager for XP-10 (if you want a simple option to save your control setup like I did) - The Lorby Camera Pod to be used with WAMA - A small scenery of the defunct helipad on Monte Serpeddi, Sardinia, Italy (ICAO was: LIES) - A tool to set your flightnumber in FSX and P3D while the sim is running. I will post some more tools over time that I have built for my own purposes, so stay tuned. Best regards
  13. As a 20 year FSX user, I just switched over to P3D due to a FSX crash. I had the Freedom Tower and the lead in lights for JFK 13L/R added as simple downloads in FSX, but I can't find anything for P3D. I have not added any scenery since I will be getting a new computer next month. Anyone know where to get them (or can I simply use the FSX ones in P3D???) Also I have 4 FlyTampa airports for FSX, would I need to re-buy for P3D? or just re-install (since they are already in the old FSX folder)
  14. Please look at the screen, a link for which is shown below. I have UTX Canada, GE3PD, PTA2.1 installed. Shaders were cleaned and restored a couple of times. Nothing helps Would appreciate your assistance. Thanks Dmitriy
  15. Night lighting on fire

    I'd like your opinions on how to get night lighting corrected on my P3d v3.2 setup. Basically, it looks like any urban / suburban textures are a raging firestorm - way too bright and lit up everywhere. (I don't have a good place to store a photo, or I would have a link here...) My setup: - v3.2 - Orbx Global and LC NA - UTX roads - REX textures for water, sky, clouds - using PTA v2.0 I have tried every combination I can think of - Orbx night lighting on / off, UTX night lighting on / off, reduced the autogen emissive value in PTA. These things make a bit if difference, but overall it looks like a forest fire below me. The rest of my P3d world looks great. Thanks, Ron
  16. p3d v3 sucks

    i have decided i have had enough of p3d v3 as the water sucks and the hdr sucks also my woai aircraft don't work properly the lights are all messed up so i am asking is it better to go to fsx with the dx10 fixer or p3d v2.5 thanks.
  17. Bored of waiting for FSLabs A320 and fancying a new challenge. I only enjoy very realistic systems heavy simulations which I can follow real world FCOMs and procedures with. Recently got the A300B4 FCOM so wondered about SimCheck. Does it work in P3D and does anyone have any experience of using it? Cheers Rich
  18. Ai traffic

    I have made up my mind and go for P3D. But what else should I update? Let´s start with the ai traffic. I have had all kind of freeware stuff for ai traffic in FSX (WoAI, MAIW etc). What about traffic in P3D? Will tehy work or would this be right time to go to payware? And which one of the payware Ai addons should I pick up? UT? MyT? I fly mainly (95%) of my flight time in Europe, Northern Africa, Caribbean, Mexico, Canada and USA.
  19. Hi all - I've seen plenty of discussion on this topic and doing some testing of my own. Some have said in order to get Rex textures & SC to work with AS16 & ASCA, the way to do it is to disable the 4 content settings in ASCA, install a texture set from Rex and ASCA should control what Rex installed. From what I can tell, this doesn't completely seem accurate. While I am able to get Rex textures into the sim, I don't think ASCA is doing anything. AS16 is obviously running the WX but ASCA won't give the occasional messages at the top of the screen (as i'm running ASCA in full dynamic mode). This is leading me to believe that ASCA is useless in this scenario. Anyone with the same results?
  20. Does anyone have a set of alternative passenger sounds for GSX? I have a good replacement ground crew voice set but looking for better boarding sounds (especially the hellos). I checked the library to no avail. Thanks!
  21. EMT on p3d v3.4

    Hi all, Have anyone tried or know if the estonia migration tool (EMT) works o P3D v3.4? I am afraid of breaking anything cause I don't see any updated information on their website (installer last updated in March 2016).
  22. Hi everyone! (Sorry for my bad english) First happy new year to all. I have a problem that started when I installed 2 new SSD's on my computer. One of Kingston Hyper X of 240Gb for Windows and another Kingston Hyper X of 480Gb for P3D. The autogen carries only near the plane, and when I approach the buildings and trees sprout from the ground, and if they look back they disappear. I already tried to format, change Video driver, settings in CFG, delete CFG, different profiles in Nvidia inspector and nothing solved. My PC Specs I7 3770K Ht Enable Gtx 970SC SSD Kingston Hyper Fury X 240GB (Windows) SSD Kingston Hyper Fury X 480GB (P3d) HD 2Tb Seagate (Backup) 16Gb Memory Windows 10 P3D V3.4 I make a video of problem: Thanks to all
  23. ILS needles never move

    Maybe someone can shed some light on this... I am using v3.4, and just recently installed hotfix 2. For quite some time now, I have no response from my localizer and GS indicators in any aircraft. I have the freq set right, and receive the proper morse code identifier, but the needles never move and I overfly the approach course. Happens every time. I reinstalled a separate v2.5 just to test, and everything there works properly! Any ideas out there? I have run searches online, but can't find anything relevant. Thanks! Russ
  24. Light Bloom

    is it possible to get another light bloom for p3d v3.4 as i dont like the hdr lighting but want light bloom i have realised its what makes the water look bad please help thanks.
  25. What does this do?

    In the P3D controls list is one called Turbine Power Management System Toggle. I enabled it but couldn't see that it did anything. Can someone bring me up to speed on what it is and how it works? Noel
