  1. Dear friends who are all still happy with P3D! Today I just wanted to introduce you to my work of the last few years - yes, years. Some time ago I even created a thread here - somewhere - but I can't find it anymore... 🤐 First of all the following: I'm not the type who likes to advertise his stuff. The reason for the post here is actually that I was told again and again (actually, also more than years now...) that I should do more advertising. For example here, because there are still many P3D fans active here who might be interested... That's why I'm just going to do that now! So, what have I done? Well, what many others have already done - created photosceneries. With autogen, of course! Very briefly, how does one get the idea to create photosceneries? Well, back then, nearly 10 years ago (remember the time back then, that was before ORBX released something like TE Netherlands!), I wanted to enhance the approach area for my home airport EDDM a bit. After a lot of reading, trying, deleting and trying again, I had created an area that covered about 40x20 km around Munich Airport. Everything was created completely manually, every autogen building was placed by hand. Many people were enthusiastic about it at the time and asked if I could create something like that for XYZ airport . And yes, in fact I wanted to do that. Shortly after, I visited Namibia (and that was really great!). But I didn't like the flights in the sim (remember, at that time there was no openLC Africa!). And that's when I had the idea to create a photorealistic Africa. It was a huge project, I never thought I could finish. I have to say the following about this: I was in my geography bachelor studies at the time. And an important part of it is, of course, the use of GIS software. I wanted to combine this so that the creation of the sceneries would be easier. And that's what I did, and created all of Africa photorealistically - in high quality and with accurate autogen. After I had 800 GB of photosceneries for Africa, I thought - why not other regions? In the meantime, a lot has happened here. I now use Sentinel-2 and Landsat-8 OLI data to detect vegetation, which I refine with vector data, including OSM. For buildings, I have chosen an AI approach, so that I can also extract building footprints from the RGB images using a convolutional neural network (with the restriction that it only really works well in Africa, as I have trained the model here). Therefore, in the meantime there are more than 10 Python scripts á 1000-5000 lines of code with which I can create my sceneries - semi-automatically. In the meantime, I have created all of Europe and Africa, and I am working on South America. The server storage space is still a problem. Due to the increased costs, I had to remove Central Africa and all my Asian sceneries from the server - even though I am working on making everything available again. So, a lot of text... It's probably best if I just show pictures - across the world, so to speak. Athens Marrakech El Oued Algiers Cape Town Ouagadougou Somewhere in Ghana Somewhere in Sierra Leone Bulgaria Currently working on Brazil France Frankfurt Serbia Tirana Naples Poland Germany Namibia In the meantime, my sceneries - of course! - also come with comprehensive night lighting. Furthermore - and I think this is not unimportant: How big are the sceneries? Well, I have installed a 4 TB HDD for my sceneries (whole Europe, Africa, half of South America, part of Asia, altogether approx. 60 million km²), on which approx. 2.7 TB are occupied. A lot of information - including a current overview map - can also be found HERE and HERE. For questions regarding the download, please write me a private message (preferably in the FSXForum or at FSDeveloper)! Now, in conclusion, I have no other option but to wish you all a wonderful weekend!
  2. I have been having trouble for few the past few days downloading the Airbus Fleet. First the FSL Libraries will start downloading and the bar showing the percentage complete will disappear never finshing. Then since the Airbus A320X is next to download it will start but about 30% do the same thing. I already tried asking FSLabs for support but they keep telling me the servers are working on their end and to turn off my antivirus, but all i have is windows defender and that is turned off. Tried downloading using Wifi , Ethernet and VPN with the same result.How to fix this?
  3. Decided to take the PC12 out and up to height, 28,000 in this instance and where else but some nice high mountainous area like the top of the world. Approaching VNLK after having dropped height and still dropping speed. I's a tiny little landing strip, no go around here. And on the ground (with a thump - need more practice...). Nice panoramic shot coming into the parking area. There's always cats.. or dogs 🙂 Hard to believe the original airport as compared to that of today (pic taken in 1977 - credit Cliff Bancroft). And another from 1964 (credit Jim Fisher). In the air again, this time heading towards Everest. Everest It's really like a wasteland - a desert of cold. Heading over the other side dropping height for VNPL Phaplu airport. Looking for the airport, the GTN750 failed somewhere after Everest. It's software froze and I had to rely on the secondary GNS530 GPS to find the airport. and on the ground @ VNPL Phaplu, another "thumping" landing... Interesting airport, I suppose they are all pretty much the same style in the area. That's all folks. Cheers
  4. Hey Folks, Just sharing a couple of "Opps" pics where things didn't quite go to plan... Opps #1 So I'm flying along in my C182 - when I start to lower the flaps for landing and there was a bang. Just managed to put it down without crashing, although it was quite the struggle with a broken flap on one side. Lesson... must not misstreat the flaps and also do more inspections heh 🙂 Opps #2 Had been flying my modded 690B Commander, also a great plane to fly, quite fast but fortunately easy to slow down. I'd been flight testing a new auto cabin pressurisation gauge function I'd written, along with having added an RXP GTN 750 with bezel control mapping and Roland's WX Radar as an embeded unit in the Avidyne bezel for integration with the Active Sky weather API. I'd landed, parked and shutdown the aircraft, reviewed my test flight logs and notes and decided to take it up again. But in my haste I neglected to follow the checklist... resulting in an engine fire - opps ! Lesson... don't skimp on the checklist... some aircraft are just not that forgiving 🙂 That's all folks. Cheers
  5. Back in ALFG returning from Edinburgh this evening, half my screenshot folder for this month is this aircraft now! Loading up Taxiing to 24 Back to Frankfurt we go. And back in Frankfurt. Might need to go back to narrow-bodies again to mix up my screenshots folder a bit.
  6. A comfy winter Lufthansa Cargo Helsinki rotation was in order this week, so I loaded up D-AFLG (fantastic work by Tavers!) and headed up north Loading up at EDDF Starting the clock.. Off to winter wonderland! Sun setting over Sweden Dark finals into ILS15. Called it a night, as I wanted to fly back to Frankfurt in the day for the best screenshots, and screenshots did i take! Loading back up on a snowy Finnish morning This called for some deicing. Back to Frankfurt we go! A proper good look at the livery here, again, fantastic work from Tavers here. Foggy finals into ILS25R at Frankfurt. Back safe and sound in a chilly Frankfurt. I'm eager to do some more flying with this thing, I've always loved cargo ops and this livery is just a screenshot machine (under the right lighting, of course).
  7. Article P3D with Unreal Engine Seems they are heading towards a fully new direction. Incl...Photorealistic Models! Marcus
  8. Browsing through my aircraft list on Volanta, looking for some long-haul returns, and I find one of my 747's resting in Chicago waiting to come home to London Pushback from stand, starting the clock. Taxiing to 10C, giving a wave to the tower! And we're off to Heathrow! Foggy skies at FL110 Some time later.. She's back home at London Heathrow after 7 hours and 10 minutes. Here's to her next journey.
  9. Hello fellow flightsimmers, I was recently flying in the PMDG 747-400 when my vPilot Client disconnected me and said: "You´re flight sim appears to be frozen, you were disconnected from the network". This happened around 7 hours after depature. I can clearly tell that the actual flight sim was still running. Sadly I noticed, that the PMDG 747 was uncontrollable. I even wasn´t able to move the camera via ChasePlane. After restarting ChasePlane I noticed, that it didn´t detect my flight sim anymore. I can´t tell if the bug is P3D or PMDG related. I also expereinced the problem on the PMDG 747-8 and a similar problem on the PMDG 777-200LRF. Did anyone experience a problem like that? PC specs are: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6-Core Processor RAM 16GB KIOXIA-EXCERIA SSD (where my sim and the PMDG are located on) NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Best regards, Paul
  10. Had some time up my sleeves to install the KA350i on the weekend. And loving it. One of the few planes I have where CRTL+E will not start the plane, gotta be by the book although there is a ready to start option that's almost CTRL+E. This plane I noted has a number of model texture load errors occuring, just have to live with them at present... and I did also notice the Hobbs counter was inop and found some fixed gauges in the forum to bring it into life. As well while reviewing the exterior I saw the wheels not quite touching the ground, fortunatelly an easy fix - just had to adjust those wheels downwards a little and once those were done I loaded up a few extra liveries, added my own effects and the mighty 350i was ready to fly. Wheels not quite touching the ground, kind of reminds me of Arthur Dent's girlfriend in "So Long, and Thanks For All the Fish" since her feet didn't quite touch the ground. Post adjusting the wheels and adding new liveries. This one reminds me of the black Disaster Area stunt ship Zaphod and crew stole and as Zaphod called it "one mother of a mover" where "light seemed to fall into it". A closer look underside of NZ4201 Blew an engine first flight - be because I'm used to Carenado 350 pedal to the metal engines that never break. And it started raining. Finally a nice flight. Cheers
  11. A few pics of my recently installed the Porter PC6 from Milviz, bought during their flash sale @ 30% off. Quite a fun plane to fly, and one where you need to be careful with the engine so as to not blow it. I'm liking it 🙂 Cheers Pretty sparten in the back. Lots of nice gauges at the front end.
  12. Carenado has released a series of images of its upcoming DA62 for FSX/P3D. The screenshots on Carenado's Facebook page show both interior and exterior detail, with a note suggesting the aircraft is "coming soon". The Diamond DA-62 is a five to seven seat light twin equipped with Diamond's trademark Diesel-powered Austro AE330 engines developing 180hp each. Full FADEC engine control means there's a single power lever for each engine rather than the separate throttle/prop/mixture arrangement typical in other designs. Avionics are in the form of the Garmin G1000 system, which includes a three-axis GFC700 autopilot as standard.
  13. JustFlight have released a brand new set of screenshots previewing their new AI traffic software, Traffic Global. Touted to include the latest airliners in service including the Boeing 787, Airbus A350 and A320neo, the software will use flight plans generated from real-world schedule data to provide worldwide AI traffic coverage. As well as showing aircraft models and some well-populated airports, the screenshots posted on the JustFlight website also show the user interface, with options to edit schedules and flight plans and the aircraft fleet, including models and tail numbers.
  14. Milviz have released a series of updates across their range of aircraft for Prepar3D. The company's B407 and M530 helicopters will benefit from updated gauges for P3D v4 support, whilst the B55 gets P3D v4 support. The longest changelist, however, is reserved for the C310R, which includes cold and dark and ready to fly options as well as several fixes and updates for the Flight 1 GNS 430, GTN 630 and GTX 330.
  15. The Grand Prix was held over the weekend, not that I had opportunity to go, but it seemed like a nice time to gather a few Melbourne pics together. Melb Airport YMML - All those planes just awaiting a chance to get back in the air... A couple flying in from the East in a Cabri G2 Heli, didn't manage very far, need much more practice flying a Helicopter. The MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) is the stadium with the lights.
  16. I gotta admit the USA (North American continent actually) has a huge number of interesting areas to fly. Some shots of flying in Oregon USA, I think I was heading to Mt Hood (or coming from - one of the two).
  17. Diving into the ASN config options in combo with those of Tomatoshade and working out the best combo I prefer while flying over Cuba.
  18. This site has been around for quite some time and the owner does a great job of gathering together in one place all the freeware scenery available for P3D including v5. I bought him a coffee today for his trouble. If you haven't used the site it's a great resource and many airports are a half-way house between default and payware. https://www.freewarescenery.com/fsx.html
  19. I've had the Duke piston for some time but am only now getting into it (so many great planes to fly). And the Duke is certainly one of them. But this is one thing you don't want to see out the window, especially if you're a passenger. Taken it out for an extended spin. All good so far. Engine then gets a little rough and looking out the window ! Danger Will Robinson ! Danger ! Arrgh, at this point I decided to save the flight and come back to it in the morning. The things you can do in a sim 🙂 Cheers
  20. Hello All, Need help - I have issues with EZdok v2 installed on P3D v3. It installed correctly and started once spawned by P3D, i.e. appeared in plugin tab. However, I keep getting this EZdok pop-up windows 'Damaged file #1' when P3D is starting. The pop-up message also appears when I tried to import EZdok cam file. I have tried many options - install, re-install, disabled anti-virus, Admin rights etc, but keep getting this error message. I also tried using the recent Beta version, by replacing the files - same errors. Hope you guys can help or give some pointers?

  22. Not much info, but this was posted to r/flightsim earlier, thought some of you guys might be interested ;-) Personally, I do not think it is wise to announce such a huge project in the earliest days of development when you don't have a great reputation for developing addon aircraft, but who knows what will come of it. I guess we'll see in a couple of years at best...

  24. I have been trying to work out the conundrum of the 4k monitor for use with my PMDG A/C for FSX or P3D in less than 40" monitor size. I have been discussing with another member via pm but thought I might ask the PMDG community for their experiences. I was looking at a 28" 4k monitor with a 4k games display, and it looked great. but when the sales rep went back to the Win10 screen, the text was squished up to the left hand side. He said, yeah...normal, these monitors really are for gaming or movies and you need a second normal HD monitor for work...When we looked at a 42" 4k TV, as a monitor, this was a lot better. I do not have the room on my office desk for larger than 32". Now, as you know, loading for example the PMDG 747v3, it will work well in FSX/P3D 4k. But what happens to all the supporting programs I use like, weather, ATC, flight planning etc. None of these are 4k and will become victims of the 4k resolution. I read that I can change the scaling in Win10 to make the text more readable, but also read that some text is often not able to be scaled, and then what happens to the 4k format if scaling is used? Unless some one has got the scaling to a position it can handle the native resolution of 3840x2160 while in FSX/P3D...AND...in another window be able to handle the flight sim supporting programs, I might simply buy a 31" 2560x1440 monitor that is pretty good at both flight sim and general stuff. I had a look at several formats. I thought as long as I kept my pixel count/mm to about that of HD in the larger than 24"screens, then all should be sweet!
