  1. A Little Traffic & Other Things..... I appreciate you looking at this pictorial, please feel free to comment...
  2. During part 10 of my world tour, I encountered some nice-but-threatening cumulus above the destination - Yakutsk (UEEE) UEEE METAR was not that bad : cloud base at 5000 ft, visibility up to 5 kms, and 15-17 knts front wind with low to medium gusts But neither the METAR nor previous traffic warned me about strong wind shears on the approach. Fortunately, I had decided to do the approach flaps up at a high speed (~130 kts) which gave me enough margin to recover from the wind shears while on final. Not the most elegant flare, but at least I ended up safe on the ground (video below)... Take a look at the AOA (angle of attack indicator) on the left, which turns full black from time to time, indicating a total loss of drag for a few hundredth of seconds...

  4. Lost all ATC centers

    I'm struggling with a strange issue, namely I had lost all the ATC centers (nothing suggested mid flight and with an IFR plan atc switches to "nearest airports list" once I should be handed to center, and the IFR plan disappears. Also, on map view there are no ATC boundaries whatsoever. My guess is that this is due to some corrupted bgl file, or the result of some scenery excluding or otherwise interfering with that info in the sim. I stumbled on a thread outlining the exact same issue in FSX from 2005 (I'm on p3d 4.2) but other than presenting the problem there was no solution there. I'd be much obliged if anyone has a clue or suggestion of how to go about it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both scenery and content but to no avail.
  5. Hi! Today when I tried to start Engine No.1 (left side), it could not start. However, the right one(No.2) was normally started. I have done all the starting procedure as usual. Is there anything I missed? Thanks!
  6. I can't believe I waited a few days to add this amazing airplane to my hangar. I love it! Arrival at KMIA with DL enabled: Jose
  7. P3D v4.2 low fps

    I'm not sure if this should be posted here or not, but I'm running P3D v4.2 with the GTX 1070 and i7-8700, and when I load the PMDG 737 NGX, my frames drop to 10 to 15, even without autogen and with medium scenery complexity. I thought the GTX 1070 and i7-8700 should easily handle P3D and PMDG at 30 fps or more, why is this happening to me? I have no other programs running in the background, and am using default textures and airports.
  8. PMDG 747 CTD randomly

    Hi everyone, I purchased the PMDG 747 a few months ago, and recently I have been having problems with it. I have P3D V4.2 with some addons. I can run the PMDG 777 and 737 just fine, no problems, but When I load the regular PMDG 747-400 house livery, GE engines, it loads everything, and right after the loading complete, the screen stays black, nothing loads, and then usually stops responding. then, without a notification, it just exits out of Prepar3D, and I have to load everything back again. A few hours ago I got a notification, and I will load the log for the error below. It said the faulting module was "KERNELBASE.dll" iin the application "View All Problem Reports, but below another module caused the problem. I was spawned at default Eglin AFB. Any help or redirection would be appreciated, I already tried deleting my A.I. traffic and reinstalling, nothing. Hope this helps :) Log Name: Application Source: Application Error Date: 3/7/2018 5:07:07 PM Event ID: 1000 Task Category: (100) Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: BEN-PC Description: Faulting application name: Prepar3D.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5a7c832c Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.16299.248, time stamp: 0xeffc9126 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x000000000002e3a0 Faulting process id: 0x385c Faulting application start time: 0x01d3b6605b6818c6 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Prepar3D.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll Report Id: 38374a1b-4b76-4ed8-a390-d6db081459c1 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: Event Xml: <Event xmlns=""> <System> <Provider Name="Application Error" /> <EventID Qualifiers="0">1000</EventID> <Level>2</Level> <Task>100</Task> <Keywords>0x80000000000000</Keywords> <TimeCreated SystemTime="2018-03-07T22:07:07.983818100Z" /> <EventRecordID>15477</EventRecordID> <Channel>Application</Channel> <Computer>BEN-PC</Computer> <Security /> </System> <EventData> <Data>Prepar3D.exe</Data> <Data></Data> <Data>5a7c832c</Data> <Data>ntdll.dll</Data> <Data>10.0.16299.248</Data> <Data>effc9126</Data> <Data>c0000005</Data> <Data>000000000002e3a0</Data> <Data>385c</Data> <Data>01d3b6605b6818c6</Data> <Data>C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Prepar3D.exe</Data> <Data>C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll</Data> <Data>38374a1b-4b76-4ed8-a390-d6db081459c1</Data> <Data> </Data> <Data> </Data> </EventData> </Event> Thanks for any help, Ben Beaver Aviation Enthusiast and future pilot
  9. Hello I updated to P3D v4.2 from v4.1 as well as update the PMDG 747-400 from Control Center Flying is fine except during descent I get wailing sound "overspeed" and displayed on EICAS. The problem is I would be at 250, 200, 190, 180 with the correct flap positions when the overspeed comes up. Even with deploying drag. Did anybody experience the same problem. Bill
  10. Hi! Dev. team, I really like this plane, however, is it possible to implement the noise sound even the bumping while taxiing or rolling? Thanks!
  11. I like this plane so far though I am still newbie of it. I have flown Boeings and Airbuses. Now I have a question. How do I make Autoland work?? I have chosen "ILS" to capture LOC and G/S then I press "Autoland". However, it always showed "No autoland" Is there any condition before I make Autoland work? Thanks!
  12. Hi! I finally solved the issue of FMS. However, there is another issue. When I line up the rwy ready for take off, the windshield became so bright or blooming~ (can barely open my eyes~ haha) What is the issue or have I done something wrong?
  13. Hi! I have been struggling with the FMS of this plane for 2 days but still have difficulties making it work. I have loaded the plane with the load manager and I have input all the data into the FMS. Still, I cannot get a complete flight by the FMS because I always get "PERF VNAV Unavailable" on FMS and I cannot get the correct TOD point as it always set the TOD to the destination airport. I cannot get corresponding Alt/Spd of the waypoints in the FMS route plan (as in the pic) I did input the Cruise alt. So what have I missed? Besides, how do I get the "Start Boarding" and "Prepare to takeoff" work in the "Cabin Crew Communication"(Shift 6) panel because they are always grey and I could not choose them. Thanks for any reply!!
  14. Airport exclusions

    I bought payware airport KPIE and the AutoGen NW of the airport for a few square mile is not visible. I contacted the dev, but I received no help. Is there anything I can do to bring back the missing AG? Thanks.
  15. Hi! I am using P3D v4.2. This issue has bothered me for a while after updating to v4.2, and it has never happened before. After I start P3D, I always encounter an issue and it only happens in the first flight and first move. That is, if I push the throttle or touch any "axis" on that hardware( ThrustMaster TWCS), the fuel flow (lever) will be cut down to zero so the engine was out. It happens to default plane and other add-on planes, too. However, if I start it again or start another flight, this would not happen again. It only happens at the first flight everytime I start P3D. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Client, FSUIPC(unregistered version, 5.122) and my TWCS driver. Nothing worked! It is quite annoying. Any idea what's going on? Thanks!
  16. Hi! I have just upgraded to v4.2 with Client, Content and Scenery installation. The process was rather smooth. However, I found that whenever I start the first flight with either default or addon aircraft, some issue occurred. That is, if I push the thrust from idle position ( default F22 or PMDG 777/747), there was electric shut down causing engine shut down( F22) or transient electric failure which returned back to normal later by itself. (PMDG 777/747) However, if I start a second flight or plane, everything was normal. Any fix or reason? Thanks!
  17. Since upgrading to P3D v4.2 I'm having some weird menu selection issues. The below video shows the problem when selecting the GSX menu (also happens with Pro ATC menu). First time menu simply appears and then disappears a split second later without giving the user a chance to select anything. However an option is selected! Second time, the menu stays on screen awaiting selection. Problem can be replicated a few minutes later. Anyone else seen this?
  18. Hi all, We recently just made v2.61 of PTA available for users that have upgraded to Prepar3D v4.2. You can find the download via your order page on the SimTweaks website. Please note: Due to shader structure change within Prepar3D v4.2, some of the tweaks in PTA v2.61 will NOT work in previous versions of Prepar3D. If you are not planning on upgrading from Prepar3D v4.1, you do NOT need to upgrade PTA. There isn't any new functionality in PTA v2.61, just compatibility with Prepar3D v4.2. Thanks, Matt.
