  1. Hello, I noticed that the Aerosoft A330 has less fuel capability than the real, it has 76.56 Tons while the real A330-300 has a fuel capacity of 109 Tons. Someone has any of information about, or if it can be fixed? As loading fuel trough the FMC it says maximum 76T even changing the aircraft.cfg with more fuel quantity thanks
  2. Hello, does anyone have some information about SAAD A350 for P3d4, I can’t find it, looks like disappeared. and what about the merge with the AS A330 Thanks
  3. I would like to motorize my homemade Throttle-quadrant. In order to find out when the A/T should be disconnected from the thrustlevers I want to make use of the states of the FMA (Flight Mode Annunciator) as shown in tle most-left box of the PFD/ND. To my understanding, the A/T should be disconnected when the mode is eighter [ARM] or [THR HLD], or when the A/T is off. Does anyone know how to read the values [ARM] or [THR HLD] of the FMA? I use P3Dv4.5 and PMDG738NGX BR/ Niek van der Corput
  4. Hello Up until two days ago I had a stable version of v4.5, HF2 running with a GTX1060 card. Without warning I suddenly started getting a Device Hung Error when undocking the default ATC and moving it on to my secondary monitor, which has a GTX760 attached (no SLI). I installed the latest Nvidia drivers and this seems to have fixed the problem. However, now whenever I undock a window and move it on to the secondary monitor, my FPS tanks to 1FPS. Steps taken so far, include - deleting P3D.cfg, deleting shaders, revering back to the old drivers,tinkering with various Graphics settings, including VSync. I also found on another thread some NCP settings to try, all to no avail. As I say, this is not something creating extra load to halve my FPS, it is breaking something that writes them off altogether. Any suggestions please?
  5. Hi, I'm currently flying a long haul and I'm cruising. The problem I'm experiencing is with REX Sky Force and it consists of the cloud and sky textures restoring to default P3D textures while in-flight. I can temporarily fix it by forcing REX to install the textures again, but the problem persists and when I exit the ~40NM of clouds that REX loads into the sim, the textures immediatly go back to the default ones. I'm using max cloud coverage and render distance in the P3D settings. thanks in advance, Daniel
  6. Hello there, i have a question regarding the light you see in the following pictures (there are some other pictures that show the exact position (when you start at "UK10" (Plockton) if someone would like to check it out): i am using Orbx Global, Orbx OpenLC Europe and Orbx GES, when i deactivate OpenLC Europe, the lights are gone. Is this how it is suppodes to look or is something corrupted there? Would be great if someone could have a look. Thanks Sebastian
  7. Hi, So while i was trying to fix gsx issue i got problem with Prepar3D. It doesn`t recognize any aircrafts apart aerosoft and fslabs products for example i have QW 787 and it`s not showing even default aircrafts are not there🙁. Deleted and installed again the latest version of P3D and nothing happens. (Just to mention didn`t touch anything with p3d while trying to fix gsx) Here are some pics: https://imgur.com/a/fy8Bb9d
  8. DAL1350 from KATL to KCHS. Really loving the scenery from my old stomping grounds when I was based there.
  9. I think this shot was taken north of Nantes in France. Got caught in a 150kt jetstream. Not much turbulence though. (JS originated from central Texas according to SIGWX charts). (Nota bene: This is also why I prefer TRACK UP nav displays)
  10. HI all, installed the C195 into P3D4 using the installer, and I'm currently in the process of racing around the world in it. Trouble is, the fuel flow gauge seems to be busted. Is it just me? Did they not recompile it? Edit - it's not there at all - missing from the CAB file... Cheers Mike Support Ticket #4134
  11. Note to self, Next time Fly in and out of Executive....... Time for home, Starting to look busy..... Oh great! Let the waiting begin.... Finally!!! Climb out from KLAS PSP below! Almost Home! And so we come to the end of another beautiful flight in my flight sim world........ Thanks for looking! Enjoy your day all!
  12. Those that know me know my first introduction into being a professional crew member was a Flight Engineer on the C-130 in the Alaska Air National Guard. The Herk is hands down the most impressive airframe I have ever had the privilege to operate. Every once in awhile I get a bug to fly the old bird and the past few days hasn't been any different. I updated my Flight! GTN, installed Simuflys CIVA INS for all my Class 2 needs, installed my TSS Soundpack, installed the TIT gauge for more accurate cruise and climb performance, and painted a Lynden Livery just for good measure. I'll upload it to Avsim in a bit for those that might want it. Unfortunetly I'm not having much luck getting the models working properly for the L100-30. Its painted but the aircraft isn't operating correctly. Todays flight was from PANC to PASV. PASV forecast is marginal weather conditions mainly due to winds so figured it would be a good challenge. Turned out to not be much of a challenge as the herk is a masterful performer. All loaded up ready to go with a 18000# payload. Airborne out of Anchorage on the Anchorage 9 In the red square is the TIT gauge. 300-310 TAS in cruise is right where its at in this slow bird. Good thing I have my GPS handy otherwise I'd be shooting the NDB, atleast the plane has an RMI to aid in the procedure but still. Over a GPS? HA Scummy weather over the IAF but the cloud layer cleared up pretty quick and onto the winds! Few mile final you can see why Sparrevohn is a one way strip. Not only one way but you had better make your Go Around decision early enough, I doubt you are outperforming the mountainous terrain at the end of RW 34. Short final and you can see the crab I haven't kicked out yet. You can see a better view of the hill behind the runway. All done and in parking just in time for the snow to arrive. I hope you enjoyed viewing, it was a fun flight! If anyone would like flying tips on the herk or anything hit me up. Its a shame CS has let this plane kinda languish without the updates it needed, but it still a fun aircraft to fly.

  14. Hello, anyone knows how set the Carenado ATR 42 & 72 from Lbs to Kilograms, currently as default is in pounds best regards Thanks
  15. Hello everyone, I have just received my package, but here I am having trouble understanding and operating the throttle on P3D, I explain myself in the photo below (link) when I have the ES throttle lever at zero on the simulation they are in the middle, whether its on Boeing or Airbus, I may have configured it and searched to find out the problem but I couldn't find anything, does anyone have a solution? thank you.

  16. Hey all. Wanted to see what people were using to connect P3Dv4 to their Foreflight apps. Im currently using FlightSimGPS, and it works pretty well all things considered. The only thing I think its missing is showing traffic from in the sim on Foreflight itself. I was going to try FS2FF to see if I could make it work since that one is supposed to show sim traffic also. Since you all may likely use something different, I wanted to get the collective feel of the community on this topic. TIA. Regards, Ben L
  17. Team Not sure what I need (to know) ..... but I suspect it is a "user guide" to the specifics of how to use the PMDG's 777 MCE checklist feature so that it is fluent & compatible with the DU displays of said aircraft. For example, I rarely have the correct page of the checklist opened when requested although the challenges are appropriate to the requested, As rare, on completion of the requested, the DU closes to a blank screen, not the previous DU Eicas page. Where I might be struggling with is understanding the "consequences" of the options "strict" & "item status check" & how they influence what one might expect. In that, my expectations include each challenge should be closed (green) if the response is accepted by the PNF. I suppose broadly put, I expect the PNF to do all the "functions" that match what one can do with a mouse click (?), but then that means not by the PF (me) who is more than occupied otherwise / "flying". Hoping to hear more.

  19. I built a new computer and installed P3D 4.5. Requesting guidance for setting up P3D I7-9700K - no overclock, will consider at later date Gigabyte Aorus z390 Pro Wifi 32GB 3200 RAM - XMP set in BIOS - 16GBx2 nVidia 2070 Super 2x - Samsung EVO 970 1TB M.2 - OS on one, P3D on other Samsung EVO 860 1TB SSD 4GB HHD - repurposed from old box 27" 1920x1080 primary and 19" 1280x1024 secondary Looking for baseline FFTF and AM settings, along with any other settings to look at. Any specific programs to use for setting Vsync, frame rate, etc? Hoping maybe @SteveW and other knowledgable members will chime in. If more specifics are needed, please let me know. Thanks Gene
  20. Hey guys, I am getting ready to get on board with PE as I finally want to properly sim with ATC and spend less time "setting/tweaking" my sim. Anyway here is the issue For PE you want latest Nav DB and latest Airport AFCADs....now I do know the options like FSAerodata and Hans.Sors (the freeone) and good ole Navigraph updates. If flying airliners with navigraph - then there really isn't any problems but I am planning to fly GA and get some CAT ratings on PE. Here is what I have Orbx all US FTX Regions and US airports - Now with this most of the airports should be fine but what Airac updates? If I use FSAerodata - it apparently has an issue with P3D4.5HF2 as it is now below the addon sceneries vs being on top. All of this would be different if I had latest Garmin updates for Reality XP 750 but I do not know any pilot who has Garmin db tied to real hardware. My best conclusion that I can think of - is go to Xplane Route for GA flights - as the Navigraph updates the entire DB for Xplane and I can then use X1000 on most of the planes. Once I am ready to fly Heavies (I would fire up P3Dv4.5HF2) for PE. Is my conclusion correct for this situation? Thanks
