  1. I’m using P3Dv4.2 professional. Several months ago P3D began starting automatically when I boot my computer. It runs ok, but I don’t want it starting every time I boot. When I close P3D, I confirm in task manager that nothing is running before shutting down the computer. P3D still auto starts at boot up. I have removed and reinstalled the client IAW Lockheed’s instructions but it didn’t help. This behavior seemed to start after installing FSiPanel but I can’t confirm a cause and effect. I removed FSiPanel however, and it didn’t change anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Respectfully, Don
  2. @Steve Dra told me to start a new thread to show off the fictional freighter I came up with for the QualityWings 787. I (and Steve) are working on expanding the list. Heres what I got going on now. So if you download them and make some flights. Take some screen shots and upload them to this thread and share your adventure! Remeber Atlas is a Ad Hoc (Charter) company so fly anywhere and its legit cause we go anywhere, anytime!! All the freighters can be found here. DHL Operated by Polar Air Cargo (AAWH). On a side note, if anyone has a particular registration they want to see on this aircraft please ask otherwise I won't go thru the trouble of posting an aircraft no one wants. Polar Air Cargo with DHL tail Polar Air Cargo pre-AAWH merger or as required for landing rights in Asia Atlas Air Prime Air (Amazon) Operated by Atlas Air Inc.

  3. Hello Everyone, I would like to know if anyone has been suffering performance drop and stutter in the latest versions of P3D. I get FPS around 20-29 and stutter when I move the camera. It's something that I've never seen before because in V4.1 I got 60fps no matter what. I would like to know if anyone has this issue and if there's any preferred settings for my simulator? Thanks and any advice would be appreciated! System: I7-7700k 4.8ghz GTX1080FTW2 16GB DDR4 RAM SSD + SDHD + HD

    No Green bar?

    After doing a complete re-install for 4.3 and not flying for 2 months I thought I would get a flight in with the new FSL319 and log a flight with BA Virtual. So first flight for 2 months and in a new aircraft.... GSX was beeping sound as normal but no green info bar. No BA again sound but no Report showing in what is the normal green bar. So guys what am I missing with 4.3 to lose my green info bar? What setting have I messed up or have I got a bug?
  5. Hello everyone, I introduce myself : I'm Alexandre from French West Indies (and a French Speaking guy, so in advance, sorry for my English), new to the forum. I start directly : Is there any way or any procedure that allows to open the gear doors at ground as shown on the following screenshots (OneDrive link) ?!AgR7ZAZB54P1iZomov68OS41gPmPSQ Of course, I've already tried the "alternate gear extension" procedure, who work in flight, but not at ground (what seems logical). The PMDG product support seems to be unavailable at the moment... Anyone have an idea? Thank you in advance for your answers/clarifications. Alexandre aka AAlphaSierra
  6. One of the things I like about Air Hauler, is it gets me to fly to airports and destinations I might not normally think of going to. On this occasion I'd flown my French-based CRJ1000 down to Southern Spain to open a hub at Almeria, but then needed to fly to Senegal because I wanted to open a base there too, but didn't want to fly the jet down all that way empty, thus I was looking for a job which was at least heading that way, so as to not completely waste fuel going there empty; that's when I saw there was a job from Almeria to Casablanca, hence the thread title of course. so here we are, turning left onto 235 degrees, after coming off runway 8 at Almeria, to head across the Med to Casablanca. And since I'm a massive fan of Bogart and his movies, below there's a bit of Casablanca-related movie trivia for you to accompany the screenshot... At the end of Casablanca, when Ilsa boards the plane after Rick makes the famous: 'Because you're getting on that plane.' speech which had everyone in tears at his noble sacrifice, the plane in question is an Air France Lockheed L-12 Electra Junior, supposedly bound for Lisbon, but Air France never operated any Electra L-12 Juniors (they do operate CRJ1000s like this one though). Of course France was occupied by the Germans in 1942 when the movie Casablanca was made, so Warner Brothers had to paint up an American plane in Air France colours, and they simply used what was to hand, which was an Electra. If you look very carefully in some of the shots at the end of the movie, you might just be able to tell that in the very long shots, the aeroplane is in fact a reduced scale model of an Electra (it is about 3/4 size) with dwarves moving around it dressed as airline personnel, to make the set seem bigger and the plane appear more distant, a simple trick, which was also employed by Ridley Scott in the 1979 movie, Aliens; Scott dressed his own children in smaller replicas of full sized spacesuits, to make the set of the Nostromo spacecraft's landing gear look much bigger in the long shots. 🙂
  7. This the Milviz DHC-3T (Beta) from PATK Talkeetna to the location of don Sheldon's cabin on the Ruth Glacier. Both Talkeetna Air and K2 are making this flight in Turbine otters. I did try Tom Fica Sheldon's cabin in P3DV4.2 but it was made for FS9 and all I got was some oil drums and a black hole. It did help locate the spot of the cabin. Greg
  8. Just like the title says. Ground scenery turns into rainbow colors. Latest Base, OpenLC, and Vector versions. Thanks for all the help!
  9. Hello, I am using ADE right now and am wondering what the "x" stands for after the airline code (ex, UALX, AALX). Could somebody tell me what this means? I don't know if it's a preferred symbol or regional symbol, or something completely different. Thanks!
  10. Good morning everyone, I installed Tecnobrain's RJTT for P3D4 yesterday. I also installed AIG's JAL Summer flightplans, using FSPXAI's 777 family and FSP 787's, along with FAIB\s 737/767 aircraft. All AI aircraft show up as they should BUT, only FAIB's 737/767 do any actual moving (taxiing takeoff/landing), whilst FSPXAI's 777 resemble static aircraft (I've also tried this with a simulation rate of 4x). Inbound FAIB's 737/767 take off and land into RJTT as they should, but inbound FSPXAI 777's and FSP 787's would descend to and maintain 2000ft, overfly RJTT and maintain a straight course into the horizon until they disappear. Has anyone encountered anything similar before? Looking forward to your replies. Kind regards, Charlie
  11. ...and a good relationship it is 🙂
  12. I never tried it since i was going to be bored during the process 🙂 But i managed to make my first ever repaint. Its a fictional repaint for the company i work for. Not that we need a 787 for our corporate needs , but if you dream, dream big :)))
  13. The new Alabeo Cessna 421 Golden Eagle! This one is really something special! Congratulations to Alabeo on this spectacular release!
  14. Hello, I was recently changing some settings with my Logitech controllers and my screen started flickering black. I have searched for similar posts but they seem to be concerned largely with overclocking. I have also switched off shadows being cast as other suggested and yet the problem persists.I am new to a lot of this and I've generally stayed away from taking the visuals too high but this seems to have occurred without me changing any visual settings. I have confirmed that it is limited to the P3D window when minimised. It occurs randomly every few seconds at inconsistent but regular intervals. I have a K7700i Processor with a GTX1070 card and nothing is overclocked. Could there be issues with my hardware without tinkering? Any suggestions?
  15. To all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country....I salute you. I then took Boeing's latest creation in Hawaii's State airline for a pattern around the memorial. Although I never had the chance to man the rail and render honors to the Memorial in my Navy Career, I get choked up whenever I view this video: Please thank any Veterans you know for their service, some never had the chance to hear it.

    Arriving at MSP

    Just a super quick test flight. I haven't even RTFM.... maybe someday I'll do a screenshot mini review ha Just briefly (because there's a big thread in the main p3d forums about it) Likes: Modelling, sounds, textures, readability of VC glass gauges. Cool touchscreen EFB, HUD (I probably offended you tube guys is it called a HGS? lol) FPS are pretty dang good on my ancient system! Dislikes: VNAV descent wasn't working well for me... just wasn't descending on schedule (said VNAV PATH up top) - (likely PEBKAC and lack of RTFM and I'm usually a GA guy), DME on VOR L was erroneously reading. Oh sorry about the stock livery... I didn't know the others weren't included before I started. I do have some downloaded ones now though... (especially like that R2D2 ANA livery) 787_2 by ryan b, on Flickr 787_3 by ryan b, on Flickr 787_4 by ryan b, on Flickr 787_5 by ryan b, on Flickr 787_6 by ryan b, on Flickr
  17. Hi guys been away from simming for a while, looking to get back in with the new rig...takes time to move everything across, anyway thought I would post a shot my fav bird from the archive. 🙂
  18. We are doing a 50% off on our website until the Midnight of May 31 (GMT). Visit to learn more and get our F-4B/N Phantom II and Midway Battlegroup at a big discount by using HALFPRICE on checkout. Winner of the PC Pilot Classic Award in 2017, the F-4B/N Phantom II is a high detail representation of the iconic cold war fighter, including customizable aircraft variants and two cockpit versions that cover the 1960-1974 period, many high definition liveries, bundled with USS Coral Sea and being TacPack compatible out-of-the box! The Midway Battlegroup brings carrier ops to life with a feature set that has never been seen in FSX/P3D. Features such as animated arrestor cables, realistic catapult launches, realistic LSO (SWS and vLSO integration), different deck configurations in a single model and a full escort fleet, make this package the most complete carrier ops release in the market. Both products are compatible with FSX:Acceleration, Gold, Steam and P3Dv2-4 in a single installer. F-4B/N Phantom II Trailer Midway Battlegroup trailer
  19. Thank you to Robbie McElrath for the release of HttpX v.2.0 and EarthProxy v.1.2. Thanks also to Jeff Schallenberg and Roman Stoviak for assistance with testing. HttpX.dll v.2.0 provides full duplex read/write capability of Flight Simulator Variables and Events across the panel set each update cycle via http protocol. It accommodates number and string values from A: (read), C: (read/write), E: (read), L: (read/write), P:Variables (read) and K:Key Events (write). It does not read .MDL exclusive L:Vars. HttpX works with FSX, FSXA, FSX Steam and P3D, but not FS9. As of April, 2017, HttpX javascript API documentation is ongoing and will be uploaded to the BlackBox website when complete. Since browsers primarily use http, HttpX enables development of web pages that communicate with Flight Simulator. Applications such as web browser/tablet/smart phone based HTML-JavaScript gauges, MFDs, GPS, and GE View are possible. I also like to mention a related project, WebSimConnect by Marcin Lizer. It’s advanced and broad in scope, and a visit to is worthwhile. GE View 2: The original application using HttpX.dll was Google Earth (GE) View. With HttpX module 2.0, now 360 degree pan views controlled by a joystick POV (HAT) switch are possible. The screenshot below shows the Google Earth view on take-off at Frankfurt am Main (EDDF) while pushing the joystick HAT switch to the right. The 3D building elevation views are remarkable. Departing Frankfurt am Main (EDDF) Rwy 7R: Google Earth view looking right ATTACHED FILES: - HttpX.dll version 2.0 - EarthProxy.exe version 1.2: This application launches Google Earth desktop client, reads GE camera angles calculated by the Compound_Rotation gauge, communicates with Flight Simulator and generates the GE KML instructions. Version 1.2 accommodates a one or two pc configuration. Using two machines, Flight Simulator is run on one pc and EarthProxy/Google Earth is run the other. Both machines must be connected to the same network. GOOGLE EARTH DESKTOP CLIENT: Google Earth users may recall that Google retired the Google Earth browser plug-in (Earth API) in December, 2015 because browsers were deprecating NPAPI, upon which Earth API was built, owing to internet security concerns. The Earth API plug-in was the foundation of the original GE View application we released a few years ago. EarthProxy, on the other hand, does not utilize the GE browser plug-in, but instead works with the main Google Earth product, Google Earth Desktop Client, which does not have the NPAPI security vulnerabilities. Your web browser need not be open to run EarthProxy. - Compound_Rotation.xml: A small XML gauge that calculates 3D rotation angles necessary to orient the Google Earth camera while panning. It performs background computations and does not appear on your panel. Compound_Rotation uses Tom Aguilo’s XMLTools module to capture HAT switch (pan view) azimuths needed for the rotations. XMLTools can be freely downloaded here (FSX) or here (P3D). If XMLTools is not installed, GE View will still operate, but without pan view capability - the view will always be forward. GE View is easy to use. Following the one-time HttpX v.2.0, XMLTools and Compound_Rotation installations, the User can start GE View by double clicking EarthProxy.exe. Feedback is solicited. Regards, Bob NEW VERSION OF GOOGLE EARTH: Google released a new version ( of Earth on 18 April, 2017. It’s browser based (Chrome only) so no download and install is necessary. Many features of desktop client v.7 were removed although KML support remains, and some new ones were added to make it more informative than before. Google has not yet provided a javascript API, so for the time being, a version of G.E. View for use with Google Earth v.9 isn’t being developed. As far as I know, there isn’t any word on Google’s plans for Earth Desktop Client (v.7) or Desktop Client Pro (v.7). If Google eventually deprecates Earth Desktop Client, then GE View users should switch to Earth Pro and still use HttpX.dll 2.0 and EarthProxy.exe 1.2. It seems unlikely the Google will deprecate Earth Pro anytime soon as many businesses use that product. ATTACHMENTS: GE View 2.0 Files
