  1. A brief video explaining how to engage/disengage the start lock in the upcoming JS41 in P3d
  2. After migrating to P3D v4.1, I started to add all my freeware sceneries via add-on.xml method. It's very nice, because you don't need to copy Effects files to the sim folder. The problem is that if I have more than 38 entries in my add-ons folder, I start to have some texture issues, like you can see in the picture bellow: It only happens if I have more than 38 entries, no matter what add-on is. Do you know if there is any limit of add-ons that can be added to the sim?
  3. Rest of my trip from Napa to Ogden Utah. I installed and instructed on a hotel network, a Best Western there. My hosts were very gracious, they took us into their home for dinner and gave us tickets to a Weber State basketball game, Weber clobbered their opponents. Ogden was very wintery while I was there, it was one of the few times I drove in the snow, other than where I used to live in Gardnerville/Tahoe.
  4. I use the Logitech 3D Pro Twist Grip, I find it better than rudder pedals for simming. This is my Colorado scenery uploaded to our file library, then the flight transitions to Utah's MSE scenery.
  5. Switched to P3D to share my MSE scenery. I love the Basin and Range, some pictures of Reno and Travis AFB included. Leveled off at FL360.
  6. A few months ago I asked in this forum whether or not Chaseplane would have VR support. The answer was that it is planned after release. On the product page there is an overview over planned features, and VR support is not on the list. Why?
  7. Hi guys! Finally I am going to buy my first real gaming PC. It will be used for P3D but also for classic gaming replacing my Xbox. I think an i5 would be a good compromise between price and performance. So what do you think about thid build? - Intel i5 8600K 3.6Ghz Coffee Lake 1151 Processor -Msi Z370 A-PRO 1151 Motherboard -Nvidia GTX 1070 8GB. I found a good price on the ASUS Strix and on the MSI Armor. What's the better choice? -16GB DDR4 G.Skill 3200MHz Ram. -Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD -Noctua NH-U9S Cpu cooler -Corsair rm650i 80 Plus Gold PSU -NZXT H440 Case About the monitor I was not sure if buy a 1080p 144hz one or a 1440p 60hz one.

  8. Hello, I just bought the 737 ngx for p3d and when I copy the download link into google. It brings me to pmdg and tells me to sign in. After I sign in all my info is there and so is the download link. When I click the download link it just prompts me to sign in again. I've tried many times but it still isn't working.It just brings me back to the sign in page. Any help?
  9. Drove this route once out of Ely, it was a wide-open stretch of highway. People were passing me right and left, going very fast. So I took my little Toyota Camry up to 100mph, it was the fastest I had ever driven. Did not do it for long, it was just one of those bucket list type of things.
  10. My eighteen-year-old daughter recently told me she discovered my Flightsim videos on Youtube. Seemed like she was encouraging me to share my videos with a wider audience than those of us who frequent our forums here. So today I linked one of my Xplane videos on my Facebook page. I've always gotten good responses to my nature and city photography there so I decided to curb my shyness about the sims outside our circles and gauge how many are interested. So far several pp have seen my setup, which works especially well with my Logitech 3D Pro controller. Xplane11 specifically needs a well weighted, firm controller or yoke since it does not use null zones like FSX/P3D do. This controller has a built-in null zone. I am posting a link to my facebook page, if it is not allowed, mods please feel free to remove my link from this post. John
  11. Hey all, I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed that the clouds cast shadows on the airplane, even when the airplane is above them. I have cloud shadows on obviously, and they look great on the ground. But after climbing up over the clouds I wouldn't expect to still see them on the plane. Is this a REX issue possibly or just the way the cloud shadows are rendered? I can post a short video if needed to show what I'm seeing. Thanks.
  12. 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
  13. Love the Twinstar, a great modern day, efficient diesel twin. Love aircraft that run on jet fuel. You'll recognize the craggy peak in Great Basin national park. Highest I've ever driven, drove my car to 11,500 feet below the peak then hiked up over 12,000 feet. Did not get winded, I gradually climbed in Altitude in the three weeks prior.
  14. ------------------------------------------------- URP v1.1 for P3D v4 RELEASED ------------------------------------------------- So under the shadow of new (and maybe "fake") PTA Tool for v4, we are releasing URP v1.1 for v4. Prithvisagar Shivaraman did 90% of the job, converted the shaders and developed the tool, so you should thank him with a round of applause. I just tested the tool and visuals, and did some advising, honestly I had the time only for that, due to known reasons. ------------- IMPORTANT --------------- - The urp-p3dv4.exe should be used to configure URP, located in "Documents\Prepar3d v4 Add-ons\URP v1.1 for P3D v4" - urp-p3dv4.exe can also be accessed from Start Menu as URP v1.1 for P3D v4.0, or via the desktop icon. - URP is now located in Documents\Prepar3d v4 Add-ons\URP v1.1 for P3D v4, and it will act as P3D ADDON, no files will be overwritten whatsoever! - Install ReShade separately! URP ReShade presets and custom files are included in this pack! -------------------------------------------- The pack includes: - A Configurator tool, which allows you to properly install and apply URP. - URP sky textures, completely reworked for v1.1 - Three variants of URP Sun glow mods from URP v0.9 - Two ReShade presets (Cold and Warm) -------------------------------------------- *** IF YOU HAVE ANY ISSUES, VISIT TROUBLESHOOTING SECTION ON THE WEBSITE WITH MAJORITY OF ISSUES COVERED! ***
  15. Why is it that dynamic lighting only works at night? I had been trying to figure out a way to have the dynamic lighting working for 24 hours, why? Because in cloudy conditions, the scenery would look dark and the aircraft lights won't illuminate the ground (which is unrealistic), not only aircrafts but sceneries that support dynamic lighting won't work until night time. I honestly don't mind the fps problem, I had set mine to 8x mmsa and things are going just fine. Can someone please help and provide me with a file within the Prepar3D folder that I could modify? Thanks!
  16. Hi guys, Im new here but i do fly a lot on p3d v4. so i am that realism guy that is searching for the most up to date AI package in terms of models and textures and in flight plans. some airlines for example are in transition from an old livery to a new livery, great example is Southwest airlines. most ai packages just have only the new livery or the old one. That i just don't like. do you guys know an ai pack either freeware or payware that is the most up to date to 2017 liveries and flightplans all around the world with almost every airline? plz let me know. Thanks
  17. I just installed this amazing scenery just released. It is freeware. FS video of scenery Real approach YouTube page of airfield owner What a life !
  18. Hi guys :-) So I have been sitting up for literally 6 hours trying to figure this thing out... I have been able to get P3D v4 now and have bought some nice addons like AS16 etc etc. But I can't seem to understand how I get the model matching to work in vPilot so I can see other pilots with their liveries and a/c types....I tried with the VMRgenerator but I could not get that to work... Does anyone know a simple and quick way to get a good model pack and how I get it to work so that it automatically knows which livery to display according to their callsign/type? I am not a tech guy so really technical things like .xml files is not really what i'm looking for.. There has gotta be a simple solution? This has given me a real headache and I'm stuck
  19. After migrating to P3Dv4.1, I started do add some sceneries that does not have a installer using the "Add-ons" method, like modern companies (A2A, FSDT, Flightbeam) are doing. In that way, I don't need to copy effects files to the sim folder, keeping the installation folders cleaner. But after adding about 15 sceneries this way, I noticed some collateral effect. Some GSX vehicles loose their textures and even some aircraft like A2A and PMDG stoped to load their textures (and became black). Removing all the sceneries xml from the add-ons directory, makes everything comes back to normal. Now, I'd like to know how you guys are doing. What's the best way to add manually installed sceneries? 1. Use the modern way, through Add-ons folder and xml 2. Use the old way, through Scenery Library
  20. 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.
