  1. A touch and go at 11S then onwards to Port Angeles. I had a scenery issue at 11S.... no buildings maybe due to 4.3 update. And my prop on the cirrus looks a little odd from a direct side on view... Otherwise I love this paint job!

  2. I have downloaded Cumulus X and installed it into P3D v4.2. If I start a flight without it connected it is fine, but when I connect Cumulus X to the sim, it quickly reloads the flight, and places me somewhere probably about 10 - 20 miles from where I was before. After that it will quickly (it takes about 1/2 to 1 second to load) go though the flight loading process and repeat every 20 seconds or so, nothing changing when it completes. I know Cumulus X is not officially compatible with P3D, but I have never (that I can remember) had an FSX only addon not work in P3D. I'm wondering if this is because I am trying to use it in P3D or if this is just something wrong on my end. Has anyone else tried Cumulus X in P3D? If so, does it work? Thanks in advance.

    Pipistrel or Air Tractor

    Does anyone know of a good (would be willing to pay, I want a good simulation) Pipistrel Sinus, Virus, or Alpha for FSX/P3D? Also, does anyone know of a good Air Tractor plane for FSX/P3D? Many thanks.

    iFly GPS App and P3D

    I have the iFly GPS App on my mobile device for use in the real world, and I was wondering if anyone has any experience or knows how to connect this app to Prepar3D like you could with the Garmin Pilot app. Thanks, Caleb

    Can't start engines

    Sigh...this is getting really frustrating for me. I've followed the tutorials to the letter, and none of the engines will catch. I've tried various other methods provided here by fellow simmers, and none of them works! ARGH! I've tried it on multiple liveries, repaired the engines, BUT NOTHING FREAKING WORKS!! I've been sustaining my flights on the panel states and auto-starts provided by PMDG, but it doesn't feel realistic at all. Help? Do I need to reinstall the DC-6? Or is something corrupted?
  8. So this is a preemptive question for folks using the DC-6 in P3D v4.2, have anyone experienced a massive frame rate drop in P3D compared to FSX? I used to have the DC-6 on FSX, and my frames would just tank to 5 or less fps, while with the other PMDG products it stayed at 20 to 30 fps. So before I sink in $70 for the P3D version, does anyone have any pressing issues with the DC-6 that would be a deal-breaker? My specs: Intel i7800, GTX 1070, 16GB of DDR4 RAM at 2666MHz, P3D v4.2.
  9. I was flying out of EGLL today (22 March), and saw fireworks as I'm climbing out of 09L. What special day was today? No idea what building though... https://imgur.com/a/SL9KS
  10. Hi I just made a flight from CYYZ to KDCA in FSL A320x. The plan was to land using STAR NUMMY2 and RWY 01. I am using Navigraph cycle 1803. I was touched and moved to see the last few waypoints of the STAR. They are: WeWil NEVVR FORGT SEP11 ALWAYZ. Try it. Bill
  11. I've only recently bought P3D v4 and along with it PMDG's 747, and I've been having a blast except for one problem; I've noticed that the lighting in my VC is vastly inferior to what I can see in YouTube videos or screenshots (this is most noticeable in the light just above the PFD). I've done everything within my power to solve this, from playing around with the in game settings and then the NVidia control panel and inspector but to no avail. Any help or even an explanation would be greatly appreciated (I have not yet attached any images as I am yet to figure out how to inset images taken on my computer, but I do have them available, so any help in uploading them would also be appreciated; unless you wish for me to directly send them to you)

    Live ATC Chatter

    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.

  15. This is a flight I did in the superb recently released freeware U206G (it's a 206 with a turboprop - find it at SoH or just google it). It's got dual GTN setup (and I've got RXP in mine). It should have been a simple VFR flight. But I saw a cold front approaching during the briefing and decided to go anyway. I decided to climb above the weather but that turned out to be a bad decision because I became stuck on top of solid overcast as I approached F62. I did something I rarely do in the sim, I did the 180 course reversal back to some sucker holes. Then I dropped in and used the GTN to find a path between the terrain and clouds to the airport. Rain also started up after I got underneath adding to the fun. Thankfully with this aircraft I have the power to get out of a bad situation hehe. I did try to maintain VFR and all USA regulations during this flight (think I was able to) Anyway if you like GA this is an excellent choice - there's amphib, skydive, and tundra and regular options!

    PANC

    Latest version performs even better with FTX SA enabled than original release: Jose
  17. 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.

    FS Labs A320 for P3D v4

    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
  19. NA Southern Alaska, Sky textures is "AUTUMN", PTA preset is "AUTUMN". Plane is free North American T-28 Trojan.
  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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?

  23. Hi Everyone, I had to do a reinstall of P3D v3, and the picture shows how so the American midwest and heartland are covered with all of these brown farms with ORBX FTX +OpenLC North America. This wasn't like that before, everything was nice and green, and this is not a seasonal thing because the textures are the same in spring and summer. I don't remember there being so much brown everywhere, and I'm wondering if it's a problem related to the new installer and updated files. I also don't have any other landclass or mesh products installed, and as far as I know, the order in the scenery library is exactly as it was before. One thing that I thought would be the problem was installing ENVTEX grass, but the problem remained after I undid that and reinstalled everything again. So, I'm stuck. I was using v3.4 for 6 months with beautiful green until yesterday when this started showing up, and for the life of me I can't figure this out. Anyone have any ideas? And, yes, I did post this in the ORBX forum, but I thought I'd throw it in here to see if anyone else encountered this difference. This screenshot is from p3d v3, just south of Chicago...but this patchwork seems to be around the region. Thanks, John
  24. Leaving Redding, CA in the Mooney Ovation I headed south towards Charles Schulz Sonoma County. I planned on 7500' cruise but the weather was broken to overcast leaving Redding. I stayed low and once the clouds broke up I climbed to 9500 with a pretty decent ground speed averaging 180 kts. I used the Reality XP GTN 750 with some personal mods I've been working on (they don't work 100% yet but they work pretty well for me). The clouds and skies are default with some tiny HDR post tweaks. Approaching STS I had to divert more south easterly to avoid low hanging clouds over the mountain range. Around the eastern tip of Clear Lake I turned back SW, past Mt St Helena, and then a left base for Ry 14 STS. On the last cockpit shot you can see the RXP GTN is setup to provide a psuedo lateral and vertical path for a visual approach Ry 14 - kinda neat! Anyway hope everyone likes them...

  25. Hello, only tested it in P3D v4 and the PMDG 777 and 747 (CP version 0.3.0), but the issue is with both planes: when in cinematic mode in 1 out of 5 new views (when it automatically switches the view) the airplane is not inside the frame. Thanks for any help, Jan
