  1. Hi guys, please help i know there is a simple answer to this well i hope so, I just came back to P3D after sometime away and i reinstalled both the 737 and 777 with new P3D V4 downloads. But both cockpits are filled with washed out textures. I have checked everything i can think off but no luck. I have a screen shot but im not sure how to post it here.
  2. My windows got updated yesterday. I noticed that windows wanted me to update when I shut it down last night. Today I notice several irregularities: - My Majestic dash 8 isn't starting in a cold and dark config. Instead it starts on battery, and none of the switches do anything except move from one position to another when I manipulate them. FMC dont come on, and the radio stacks dont turn on. Turning the battery off doesnt do anything. Restarting the sim doesnt help. - Prepar3d v4.1 just hangs when I shut it down. It's window dissapear, but its on the taskbar showing as active. It's been 5 minutes now, and it still hasnt gone away. - My windows task bar shows up in the top of the screen instead of the bottom where I want it when I first boot up the system. I get alot of app crash messages when initially coming into the desktop. Subsequent startups during the day leaves the taskbar in its normal position in the bottom, and I get no app crash messages. I am using Nvidia surround on 3 screens btw. GFX driver is updated along with geforce experience. These are just three of the most glaring issues I had because of this update. Anyone else noticing any not normal things with their pc/sims?
  3. AS with cloud draw distance set to 200 miles with very little hit on FPS SF with "Enhanced Overcast Clouds Bases turned ON. FL340
  4. Hi, I purchased PTA today for P3D V4 and have had to lower my settings in order to gain good frames. The settings I have now look fine and perform fine, but when at altitude - the cloud shadows do reduce performance by 5-10fps. I could easily live with this; but I do feel as if I am not getting the best out of my sim, as I used to run higher settings with higher performance. If anyone cares to share some settings within PTA (or even the sim itself) which are culprits of reducing performance, it would be greatly appreciated. P.S - I use Pilot Pete's (he made a youtube video on PTA/Reshade/URP settings) PTA preset - and he has a much better system than me, so possibly I just need to try a completely different preset. (My specs are: i5 7500, GTX 1060 6GB, 8GB RAM, Win 10) Thanks, Luke.
  5. Hi all. Quick question, apart from the texture issue described in this thread below... ...does Taxi2Gate's - MMMX Mexico City Xtreme work in P3D v4 without major problems? Can anyone let me know of their experiences with it please? Thanks.
  6. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that a new version of Live ATC Chatter is coming soon. If you like to listen to ATC Chatter via the browser, this utility allows you to create a few streams and use the radio to access the streams while in flight by typing the chosen frequency. You can certainly do this with your browser, but this method saves time and is more efficient.
  7. This is the PC-24 from IRIS Simulations and I've become quite happy with it. Yeah, it's got "quirks" and is far from perfect but, it's a load of fun to fly anyway!
  8. Hi, today i installed the Update for the A320X (P3D v4.1) and unfortunately Linda doesn't seem to work with the new version. I installed the latest profile and Linda seems to find it (Its preselected in the dropdown near the sync button) but the connection to the aircraft doesn't seem to work (Linda recognizes my buttons and switches but nothing happens in the aircraft). I also recognized that my VRInsight Combo says "Linda Init... FSX Default" instead of the actual name of the aircraft. I'm using the Hotas Warthog + Throttle and the VRInsight Boeing Combo II (None of the devices are working). FSUIPC is updated. It worked perfectly in P3D v3 and it also works with the PMDG 737 in 4.1. Are you aware of the issue or have an idea? Thanks in advance and best regards Florian
  9. Hey! I'm currently running a 6600k at 4.4ghz 16GB ddr4 2300 kit of ram with a 1060 6GB. I have p3d v4 running quite well. I do have a few issues with DL and shimmering however I've managed to live with it. I have a few pennies saved up and Im now in a position to get a 1070. My question is if it's worth the upgrade from the 1060? Should I save up more and get the 1070ti? Should I change the cpu, would that make a noticeable difference? Or should I just skip the upgrade and wait for the next generation of hardware? Thank you!
  10. Good morning , I've stumbled across a program that displays Google Maps / Google Earth in a browser at the same angle / view point as through your aircraft's windscreen. I'm running P3d v4.1 and would LOVE to have this but just can't seem to find a version for P3d v4. Here's a link to some screenshots that look outstanding! Has anyone got any ideas? Hope you can help and all the best, Richard
  11. NA Southern Alaska, Sky textures is "AUTUMN", PTA preset is "AUTUMN". Plane is free North American T-28 Trojan.
  12. Hello all, i am experiencing issues with chaseplane and P3D v4 as there are instances I change cameras and P3D stops responding. Just thought I'd give this info while chaseplane is still in alpha for v4. Any ideas?
  13. Can anyone please confirm is Cielosim KJAX is working well? I'd like to add it to the cart, but want to know if there are any night lighting problems in v4 before I place the order. The night lighting in p3d v3 looks impressive. I contacted the developer and have not received a response. Thanks.
  14. A short trek from O85 (outside of Redding, CA) to Eureka, CA KEKA. I planned a higher cruise but clouds enroute kept me at 12,500. It became gloomy approaching EKA with raindrops falling on my wings on final.

  15. I have started to have issues when starting P3D up, and I don't know if it warrants a complete reinstall... I start up P3D and on the scenario page the aircraft preview doesn't show up and the default airport is shown as Birmingham without anything surrounding it on the map. When I try and change the airport, it shows only 6 airports to choose from. Also when I choose an aircraft and exit back to the scenarios page, the sim crashes. Any help would be much appreciated.
  16. Working with Sean per his avsim post (and a few other customers) towards a native installer for P3D v4. In mine I've also added Reality XP GTN 750's here, and I've got a small mod to get some VC buttons working (mainly direct to and home on #1) - that's all anyone should really need. Here's just a few pics. This allows use of the GUI config app from realair (so we don't have to do txt edits to change options) and includes the dawson x64 sound gauge so all sounds work.

  17. Consider my in game menu. (top row) Compare that to how it looked just 3 days ago (bottom row) As you see the text is not as crisp / sharp. What can cause this antialiased effect apart from FXAA which is turned of in P3d and in Nvidia driver? I have uninstalled my display driver twice with Display Driver uninstaller. I have restored original P3D shaders (in case some PTA profiles were applying their own antialiasing(?) I have deleted p3d.cfg Nothing works. I am running WIN10 on 4K screen set to native resolution. What gives? Thanks in advance
  18. I usually don't touch these sorts of planes... but this was on sale recently and it's one I've wanted for some time. You'll see some wrong indications on the instrumentation because I'm still a noob, but here's a flight from KMSP to KDLH, and I shot the RNAV Ry 27. Feel free to tell me what I'm doing wrong - and is there a way to set nose wheel steering to my pedals or ailerons? Using the mouse is annoying. And the blue lights -I see this on all my P3D stuff - anyone know why they are blue?

  19. Night Moves v4 Edition...scenes from my current/existing airports with improved dynamic lighting. Unfortunately, Flightbeam's Denver was not included since the new versions dynamic lighting does not work for me and no solution was offered by Mir. I appreciate you looking at this pictorial, please feel free to comment...Darryl
  20. One of my favorite airports has been updated to p3d v4. This is one I do not mind paying for the upgrade price. The next one I'm looking forward to is LGSK and that's coming soon.
  21. Upon landing in this bird I basically don't have any rudder authority, even on final actually, with AP off. Anyone else notice this? It's like a bug where this is a hidden YD engaged (which usually happens in their larger planes, but you can disengage the YD with a button). There is no button YD on the AP in the mooney.
  22. A few weeks ago I purchased PMDG's 777 base package (version 1.10.8414), and installed it on P3D V4. I used OpCenter to get a couple of liveries and logged about 30 hours of flight time in my new aircraft--no problems encountered anywhere. I just reformatted the drives on my flying computer and loaded Win10-64 and loaded P3D V4.1 (version I then logged into my account at PMDG and downloaded the latest 777 base package (version 1.10.8448). It seemed to install without any problems. I can load (but haven't actually flown) the 777. However, OpsCenter (or PMDG) does not show up in the start menu. I can go to the PMDG Operations Center directory and launch OpsCenterUpdater as administrator, but it runs for about 5-10 seconds (it is launching on an SSD) and then dies--no error messages or any other warning. I tried looking in \AppData\Roaming ... for a log file, but the only PMDG-related folder there is RAASPRO. I uninstalled the PMDG 777-200LRF Base Package P3D (the only PMDG listing in the Uninstall Programs listing in the Control Panel) and tried again--always being sure to run the installation package, P3D and OpsCenter as administrator. I also turned off Windows Defender and Windows Firewall (there is no other security software on this box) while trying to run OpsCenter, with the same results as described above. Any ideas?

  23. I just saw that LGSK has been updated to p3d v4. Go get it! Downloading now.
  24. East of Phoenix...or should I say, "Painted Desert." I am using BlueSky scenery, P3dV4 and URP v1.1 for P3D v4(coloring/saturation) I appreciate you looking at this pictorial, please feel free to comment...Darryl
