  1. Hey pilots! I currently own P3D v4 with a lot of add-ons and thinking of setting up X-Plane 11 as well and use both, I searched online about the different add-ons for X-Plane 11 and I saw that a lot of people are divided for some of the add-ons. (looking for P3D v4 equivalent add-ons for X-Plane 11) Below are all the add-ons I currently own on P3D v4 and I’d appreciate it if you can copy & paste the list and mention the P3D v4 equivalent add-on for X-Plane 11. (Payware is not an issue, what matters to me is the quality and realism ) Scenery: - Orbx FTX Global Base Pack - Orbx FTX Global Vector - Orbx FTX OpenLC - Orbx sceneries by country (England, Germany North, Etc..) - FS Global Ultimate Textures: - ENVTEX Weather: - ASP4 - ASCA - PercipitFX Airports: I know who develops the best airports for P3D v4 but I have no idea who are the major devs for X-Plane 11 airports Aircrafts: - FSLabs A320x – JARDesigns A320 (Also waiting for FF A320) Utilities: - Chase Plane - PTA - GSX - PFPX - Fsaerodata (to update P3D v4 Nav database) Many thanks in advance guys!
  2. Hi, does anyone know a good way/a tool to reinstall Prepar3D v3 without having to reinstall any/most of the addons? Thanks in advance Hubert Gaszewski
  3. Hi Everyone, I am an old enthusiast of flight sim for more than a decade (coming from FS2000/2002). I have started training to become a real life pilot (as a hobby), but for now I mainly continue to be passionate to learn from the community and spend a few hours during nights and weekends doing my airliner flights on my PC. Lately, I have been flying in FSX:SE (moved from retail FSX), mostly with PMDG 737NGX and Aerosoft Airbus family. I am the type of person that take time to read the manuals, watch several tutorials and truly learn how to fly these jets. I do my flights offline, but following real airline routes/schedules and in order to reach a high level of realism, I have tons of addons in FSX:SE. My setup is pretty stable and performance is good as my PC is relatively new and high-end. This weekend I attended the Flight Sim 2017 event in UK and between FSFX Packages and Dovetail presentations, to my surprise, I found myself lagging behind the community in terms of platform. I discovered that the vast majority of the audience has already moved to Prepar3d or X-Plane 11. Therefore, having considered moving to Prepar3D before, this realisation made me rethink and research again. Therefore, I would really appreciate some expert advice from people who has already done this switch, considering all the doubts and costs involved. My simple question is, is it worthy to move to P3D v4 from a "stable" FSX:SE setup with ton of addons and without being "hardcore" user (not VA member / weekends flyer)? My main points of doubt are the following: Moving from FSX:SE to Prepar3d v4 will cost me almost $500 USD between license and new addons (list below). Prepar3d has this policy that new versions cost a new license and I fear (a lot) having to pay for another license and worst, paying for addons upgrades every 2 or 3 years, when I have my current setup for FSX for a long time. I discarded X-Plane 11 as option, as it seems a very good 'out of the box' platform, but focused on GA and with very few addons (particularly from those I already own and usually fly with). Addons I currently use in FSX:SE (impact of switching to P3D v4): Aerosoft - A320 Family (FREE but, will need to wait for v4) PMDG - 737 NGX (PAY $90, need to buy a entire new version for P3D) FS2Crew 2 Reboot NGX (PAY $35, need an upgrade) ORBX - FTX Global Base (FREE) FSFX Packages - Chaseplane (FREE) FSPassengers X (PAY, will take months to be ready for v4, probably move to FSCaptain as it is free upgrade) HiFi Simulations - Active Sky Next (PAY $30, need to buy newer version AS4 for v4) Navigraph - FMS Data Manager (FREE) Pete Dowson - FSUIPC 4 (PAY $44, need to buy new version 5) Pointsoft - ProATC/X (FREE) REX Simulations - Texture Direct HD w/ Soft Clouds (FREE) REX Simulations - Worldwide Airports HD (FREE, but in development) A2A Accu-Feel v2 (PAY, still in development but need to buy a new version) My Traffic 6 (Not sure, probably would buy Ultimate Traffic Live for another $45) Navigraph - FMS Data Manager (FREE) FS Genesis - World Terrain Mesh for FSX (Not sure, probably would go for FreeMeshX or FS Global Ultimate Mesh for another $85) Really appreciate some opinions if the (high) cost/benefit would be acceptable/worthy. I understand 64-bit would be a new world, but I am afraid if I should not wait and check 1-2yrs down the road if FSW or X-Plane take off and then move to a next-gen plataform, considering that based on everything I've read so far (please correct me if I am wrong here), P3D would give me a much similar experience to my current setup in FSX:SE? Many Thanks!
  4. Hey everyone! Ive been playing with P3DV4 for a while and I've decided to get a new addon aircraft to play with. I went to Rikoooo's site and found an Antonov AN-26. I've installed it and it all went well, it even showed up in the vehicle menu (although preview was unavailable). I started a flight anyway and the aircraft was basically completely invisible other than the lights on the wings and tail. Heres a picture: https://imgur.com/qI8X7GU I'd appreciate any help from you guys!
