  1. Hey, Just purchased the product, and installed it, but I'm having a bit of trouble accessing it. It says in the manual that configuration appears under the "add-ons" tab, but I'm not seeing any Reality-XP or GTN options there. I thought I had the product installed, but so far no go. Now, I to have the GNS 430 installed on many aircraft. Does this new product conflict with the 430? Are there additional steps I need to perform in order to install this into FSX?
  2. This is the support page for SXAD's KAMA for FSX, FSX SE, Prepar3d v2, v3 and v4. Currently this airport is available from Simmarket: And Justflight:
  3. I have a problem that for a number of add-on planes (FS2crew panel for q400, A2A comanche & connie, Manfred Jahns c-47) if I save a flight with a 2D panel open and then exit P3D and then reload the save any 2D panels that were open end up tiny. So tiny that they can barely be seen. Here are 2 images, the first before exiting and the 2nd after exiting and then re-loading a save. Any ideas on how to fix? image 1 image 2
  4. Hi Guys, I am wondering if anyone is having issues taking screenshots over the the sim in windowed mode? I seem to have an issue with this every time i use GYAZO or even using the snipping tool. Every time I highlight the region I want to take a picture of, the sims window flickers. I am not sure but, I think it might be an issue with lighting. When i look at any shadow or reflection this issue seems to happen. Please inform if anybody has encountered this? Thanks!
  5. Here are some paints I did for the wonderful Xtreme Prototypes Lear 25d v2.1. First is a similar paint to a real world livery. The blue is done in metal flake seen only in bright sunlight on highlighted areas. Click on pic for larger image :) PM me if you want this livery.
  6. Hello gentlemen. Wanted to share with you progress on the modeling front for this project. It's been 7 month now of ongoing passionate labor, Real life diversions resulting in a project freeze then reignited passion and countless hours of needless obsession about small details. a 4th redo for the exterior model was in order ! The Honda is now textured and exported in P3D! Please have a look at these screen grabs and let me know your feedback. Keeping in mind that this is a WIP and will be improved upon religiously.. 2017-12-10_1-11-6-15 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr 2017-12-10_1-5-43-268 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr 2017-12-10_1-12-47-982 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr 2017-12-10_1-17-13-299 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr 2017-12-6_1-40-12-316 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr 2017-12-10_1-17-23-521 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr 2017-12-10_1-17-56-986 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr Marwan Gharib
  7. P3D

    Hello, I am writing this because I am on P3D V4.1 and it lags really badly. I don't know why. I uninstalled it because I was running out of space on my PC, but it was running smoothly back then. I recently reinstalled it because I have space for it. But now it runs so badly. I don't know what caused this, the only addons I have are PMDG 777 and FlyTampa Dubai. My PC Specs are: GPU: R9 380X OC 4GB CPU: Ryzen 5 1600 RAM: 8GB DDR4 Before you say it is my PC specs it is not because it was running fine before and my specs are in the range of the requirements. My friend has P3D v4.1 and he runs it smooth. His PC specs are: GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB CPU: Intel i5-6600K RAM: 8GB DDR3 Please help because I can't fly in this simulator at all and I really want to.
  8. Hello, it may seem inappropriate but I wanted to buy PTA v2.5 from the website but apparently I am getting an error saying the Payment/Transaction was not honored. Now, in banking terms, that is as good as a transaction being declined. So could you mind telling me the name of Banks in India that can allow me to make the purchase. Sorry, I am a bit confused regarding this as I am facing a similar situation with other online Vendors as well.
  9. In case anyone has Rex Skyforce, it appears the Hotfix should be released pretty soon.
  10. Hello, some days ago I installed all PMDG v4 aircrafts new on my laptop. Scince this, the sim doesn't start anymore... It shows the main picture of P3D but when it tries to open the main menu, the picture is gone and there is nothing. The Task Manager tells me, the sim, SODE and courtal are running but it isn't shown in the Task Line too! I've reinstalled PMDG and AS16, I've even already reinstalled my P3D and the same problem... Under troubleshooting it shows me "Failed to connect". Please help me! Win 10 i7-5700HQ SSD128G GTX970
  11. Hi Installed p3d4 and 747 with fs2crew but the right click in the instruments are not working for example I cannot start the apu. I literally reinstalled the windows and only installed p3d and pmdg 747 still the same behavior.
  12. For those that didn't see this yet.... Meet the fleet. This is a little project I worked on for a couple of years, to bring the (almost) the full US Navy to the sim in the form of AI surface traffic. Over 250 ships/subs, 19 models, traffic worldwide... and we plan to add more in 2018. Read more here: And check out our youtube page for more videos!
  13. 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!
  14. Is there any such tool that will show everything that you have installed and that would be running when you start P3d? I am looking to clean up my sim and thought there could be a tool that can assist in doing this. I'd be looking for not only scenery and planes, but really anything that I have running within the sim that could be causing conflicts or just duplicating with other similar programs or applications. From there, I'd like to remove what I don't want in the sim anymore. This would be in 4.1. Is there such a beast? If not, what do you all recommend for doing some house cleanup?
  15. I only fly online with either Vatsim or PilotEdge. Both have their plusses and minuses in my opinion. Pilotedge pros - full guaranteed coverage top to bottom in the west, very professional / Cons - only in the west, very little traffic, $. With Vatsim, I see the pros being you can fly online any time, not limited to roughly half of the US, a little more traffic / Cons - no guaranteed coverage, bad sound quality at times. Does anyone know what improvements, changes, additions, features that will be coming up in the near/distant future to either of these 2 applications? I haven't flown on IVAO. How does that compare in the US? I'm just curious if there are any rumors floating around out there.
  16. Hello,Screenshot I have recently purchased P3D v4 and am in the process of installing all of my Carenado and Aleabo aircraft. They install correctly however interior textures are missing every time. Usually it's the roof texture or something like that. I do not have the anti virus turned on when doing the install so that should not cause an issue. I have tried to install multiple times and it still does not work and i have downloaded the most current installer from the website and still nothing. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!!
  17. Hi Folks! Hope you all had a great Christmas! A few months back I purchased a GTX1070 to replace by old GTX960 2GB MSI model. My Overall performance was decreased slightly (and unexpectedly) and stutters become very evident. For Christmas I also got new Ram. 16GB of 2400mhz and installed it into my computer. This went well and I reinstalled windows and P3D to find about a 40% reduction in performance in almost all situations. For example before my new RAM I roughly got 45-50fps at UK2000 EGAA (In the AS A320) which isn't all that FPS Intensive and stutter inducing. Now I'm struggling to scrape 30fps and it's a really stuttery 30fps. I'm just wondering is there anything that could potentially help my new installation of my OS and P3D too boost the Sim up to what it was atleast. I'm looking for a smooth sim but for me I find that easier to achieve with 35+fps in situations like this. My System is: i7 4790k @4.5GHz Palit Dual GTX1070 16gb of Corsair Vengence @2400mhz My GPU usage is only maxing at 40% so this could be the issue I feel.
  18. For users considering P3Dv4.1, I can confirm that LINDA 3.0.3 is compatible when used with FSUIPC 5.121b and compatible aircraft. A2A C172 and C182 owners should note that there is an issue with the steering tiller not working on the ground. Other aircraft tested (ie. default B58 and F35A and PMDG737NGX) work fine. Please report any issues with LINDA here.
  19. Hello everyone, Since my X-Plane 11 installation seems to be broken since trying the 11.11r2 build (I get 15fps max on every render setting and can't run the sim in real time), I decided to ignore my inadequate experiences with Prepar3D and give it another shot. I started it up and loaded the default Baron 58 and to that point everything seemed to be working fine. But when I wanted to look down to my throttle panel, I noticed an issue I hadn't had before. When looking down, both using the hat switches on the joystick and using space + mouse, the view tilted to the right. So instead of looking down, the left side of the camera went down, but the right side stayed the same, creating a very weird view for my eyes. Something else I noticed was that when I zoomed out to below 0.70 zoom, the view started to look very weird, almost as if what I was seeing was a camera pointed at a computer screen at a 40 to 60 degree angle. It's hard to explain, but anyway I'm not sure if the exact problem matters. All I need is a generic fix for weird camera angles and incorrect panning of the camera when looking up or down. Does anyone know how to fix some general camera/view glitches or how this specific issue can be resolved? Thanks in advance, midazz1

  21. Sorry that the video is a little dark, I took it using my Kodak digicam. The two songs in the background are Lee Ritenour's Dreamwalkin and Seals and Crofts get closer. My English teacher from high school knew Seals and Crofts.
  22. Hello, I seem to have a very unstable 777 set up. I do not have the PFD pop-up option enabled, but seem to get CTD without error messages very frequently (1 out of 3 flights). It can happen anywhere in the flight (1hr to 6hrs) It doesn't seem to happen with other aircraft, just the PMDG 777 (200LR or 300ER). I'm using: P3D 3.4 Windows 64 Home Creators Active Sky 2016 w/ ASCA (v6452) Ultimate Traffic Live ( Is there a best practice around finding out what's causing this? Thanks for any help you can provide, Daniel
