  1. The Central Coast... Thanks for viewing, Darryl
  2. 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.
  3. FSDreamTeam have released preview images of their upcoming Chicago O'Hare scenery for Prepar3D v4. In a post on their Facebook page, the images show detailed modelling of the gate areas, control tower and other 3D objects. No timeframe for the release has yet been provided publicly.
  4. I recently returned to flight sim recently, and saw where my FSW aircraft crashed my recently updated P3Dv4.5. A quick check of my current and available FSW versions indicated i was still in the P3Dv4.2 era I would like to thank FSW for updating my admin account with two purchases of FSW products from a now closed vendor. Very quick response. I can now update my Lear, 441 and the Falcon 50. to suit P3D v4.5. I saw the comments(https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/550562-if-p3dv4-crashes-or-other-p3d-issues/)fromFSW regarding updates. I guess the repaints and or revised textures etc for the aircraft will also be an issue? So, is the best way forward to: 1. Download the latest version for the relevant FSW aircraft. 2. Make a note of the third party repaints and textures to see if they have been updated and reinstall later. 3. Uninstall the FSW aircraft using the add - remove programs app. 4. install the FSW aircraft, making sure that virus checkers are suspended. 5. Update Milviz radar and install as per Milviz recommendations 6. Update RXP GTN and install as per RXP recommendations. 7. Test to see that the aircraft loads ok, if, so... 8. See if the third party repaints and textures have been updated, if so, reload. 9. Repeat for other FSW aircraft.
  5. Hi All, I wonder if you can help me out ... live traffic working fine , lots in the air and taxying around airports - the problem comes when they park , after a couple of minutes they disappear. I have tried increasing the parked percentage , but unfortunatly it fills my airports with aircraft at the wrong positions. Any advice? I have traffic global 'unchecked in the scenery library' Thanks in advance! Jim
  6. Having fun creating my own lighting for my GA fleet....The CJ got a new cockpit lighting makeover.... I turned the lighting up for the pic...I fly with it much darker...really adds to the immersion at night. And while I was at it...I really disliked that Carenado didn't offer a vanity light (I call it...some call it a logo light, hehe). So....I added one (took 4 bulbs but I think the effect is awesome when you switch to external view at night). 2 bulbs to simulate the light source in the horz. stab. Just need to paint in the lights on the texture map and it'll look even more realistic. Probably do the cabin lighting next. 🙂
  7. After having finished my route a few minutes ago (go and watch it on PFY) i found it would be interesting to post the best pics of it. So today we're at EGPH, or edimborophh for the ones who know it better. I've been there twice, once with the q400 and once with the SF34. It's now a complete other story. I'm captain of flight AF 1687 (real BTW) left @ gate 2. Not a busy day, clouds are not too bad and there isn't much wind. Catering is coming in. Meanwhile, in the flight deck, i'm inserting the route, sid, star, perf and all others. I still kept some knowledge of the FSL that i got rid of during the malware thingy, but some of it is different. It feels 100 times more lively. Of course it isn't finished, and systems are on some ways basic but it looks neat. Briefing says it'll be a 1:49 h flight. Time to pushback. the integrated checklist is a bit bugged and needs assistance a lot of times but it works well. The FO today is Marion Chatilleard. Signs on, bleed on, GPU disconnect, clearance obtained, getting straight to the pushback. No issues, no bugs, a perfect day. As the plane is pushed back i do the annoncement to the pax: 100 souls and 4 crew members. Meanwhile, pushback stopped, and tow truck is disconnected. Same routine; pins removed, surrondings clear. I start engine 2. Gets stabilized quickly. Starting N°1 is the most interesting. You get the PTU sound (aka "barking" dog), and things come alive. After the routine of cheks and sets, we taxi to the active, in this flight RWY 24. RAAS comes with this beast. It makes things sound so realistic! Love the fact devs use it more and more. after hearing "ON RWY 24" and having set chronos, it's time to set T/O power. SRS flex 62, rotate comes quickly. Then you have to set thrust to climb in order to get autothrottle. CLIMB was one of the BEST i've gotten on the last year of which i've been simming intensively. I've even set it as my desktop wallpaper LOL Note I dont have AS or even REX. i'm only using a free thing called FSXWX that works in V4 and needs FSUIPC. It's the only free way i know to get active weather. And also these birds don't need AS, because of their integrated radar. It works on ANY weather engine. A little gadget that I think looks suuper cool is the printer and the coffee. As I said, I don't have AS so atis is useless, but nontherless it's great-looking. The coffee "fills" me of more excitation about this plane. Cruise was quite boring. Switched from the active frequency to the best local radio LOL, cuz P3Ds vanilla radio is a true pain in the butt. Did you see the coffee smiling at me? That's why i drank it LMAO. After a not so boring cruise filled with coffee, crackers and BBC2 it was time to prepare for the descent. Marion Chatilleard helped me with the checklists (not talking about CFD, but ICL) It was nighttime and it was getting colder. Finally switched to the Paris approach frequency and got my clearance for 27L. Again, after some Checks and sets, we were on the last turn. Flaps1, spoilers armed, and the LOC and GS came alive. But actually because I'm dumb and thought I knew 27R I went into a closed taxiway after my landing. Rating was @ 194fpm, nice. So yea, thx no collisions enabled, otherwise I wouldn't be here lol. Since there was 0 damage I continued like if nothing happened(never did that one before) and moved along to the gate. Pier F, gate 70, the exact same one I went to only two weeks ago . I finally parked the baby, and let the 100 souls and their belongings deboard. The final check and set went quickly. I then opened both windows to feel the fresh air and the smell of the vehicles going by. Turned everything off and let the baby have a good night. And this was the end of a successful and exciting journey. More seriously If I had to say anything about the plane it looks nice, flys well and is easy to learn on (unlike the maddog or SF34 Hehe) and the gadgets just make it feel good. I think it's worth it, even if it's not complete YET. Also the ones who know me know my PC is a bottleneck and the fps I get on it aren't great. But the most important thing is HOW much FUN it gives you, no matter the FPS. So that guys, was a review, a flight and my opinion, all in one topic. Best regards ever, Charly
  8. Hey guys, I just downloaded the new installer for the 773 and when I install it I get : Installation cannot continue, your registry does not show a valid Prepar3d installation location. I had no issues with installing the 772. my p3d installation is on J: win 10 pro p3d v4 anyone have a solution for this ?
  9. Hello everyone, these are some of my favorite shots from my flight yesterday from KIAD to KSFO. Enjoy and let me know which one is your favorite! Addons used: Flightbeam KSFO KIAD, PTA v2.51 with TOGA preset, Active sky 2016 beta2, GSX, REX soft clouds,ENVTEX, PMDG 777 and Chaseplane.
  10. I'm confused about the simulated time. I have a default scenario set up at a US west coast airport (Pacific time zone) and I'm on the east coast (Atlantic time zone). When I start that scenario from the opening screen I first adjust the time setting down 3 hrs to be west coast time. But when the scenario starts and the airplane is loaded the airplane time is still indicating LCL time of the east coast. I want to fly at the real current time for the time zone I'm simulating so everything synchs up with ASP4 and online ATC. In FSX I had a saved default flight on the east coast and when I would change locations to the west coast the time would adjust automatically. What am I doing wrong in P3DV4? EDIT: I have been going to World / Time & Season and re-adjusting the time setting but that entails a re-load of scenery etc.
  11. Hello, Have set heading to the runway Heading in LOWG (35C) but in Preflight Checklist, FLT Instruments the PIC did not say the selectet heading. he says the heading, which the plane is Standing at the Gate. is that correct?
  12. Maryland Prepar v4...More colorful, sharper and even a better frame-rate. Thanks for checking out the pictorial, please comment if you wish...Darryl
  13. Hi, I am not happy because when the 777 came out for P3D v4 today i was going to download the latest installer, so i did, there was one problem is that it would not let me install to P3D V4. I think that this is because i had bought it through the Aerosoft website. When i bought the 747 off the Pmdg website i could download the installer and run it for P3D V4. Is there anyway that this could be helped? Thanks, Hugo
  14. Hi, I was wondering how ORBX, REX and other add-on's are integrated into p3d v4. Currently I am using P3D v3 and the above add-on's and they are taking nearly 175GB of disk space all together. I now have approximately 130GB of free space left on my 500GB SSD. Now I planning to get P3D v4 and do not want to uninstall v3 yet, till I have a stable v4. I am curious if add-on's like ORBX utilize the same set of scenery and related files/folders or do they take up additional space. I am afraid the latter might be the case (because of 64 bit codes) but was not sure. I would appreciate if someone can shed some light on this. Thanks in advance. veemaniq
  15. Trying different texture sets from REX TD & SC Enhanced with ASP4/ASCA and PTA Presets Thopat/REX. Screenshots were taken over the past few days using Live Weather off ASP4. Aircraft is F35 from P3DV4. KSFO HD v2.0 - Departure 28R Dusk - KDEN Near FT CYYZ Near FT EKCH Near LGAV Random In-Flight Dusk near FT YSSY
  16. I've waited a long time to have a half-decent classic Learjet for P3Dv4 and the new Learjet 25D from Xtreme Prototypes was well worth the wait. As is shown on the VC shots, the GTN 650 and GTN 750 integrate seamlessly too.
  17. Hello, When I choose any livery other than the United Merger 737-800WL my P3dV4 CTD. Any thoughts? Thank you. Frank Mattioli
  18. I think I have found a possible bug with The Latest Exp version, while using P3Dv4. Not to sure where to post it so I am putting it here. When Chaseplane is installed but NOT running. I can pan on the outside view of the aircraft but when in the VC the Pan does not work at all. After uninstalling Chaseplane I can pan again. Not to sure if it made an error in the config file or not
  19. I've been dipping my little toe into the GA world and getting used to tiny planes from what I've been used to in the tube liner world I've mostly spent my simming career in. Back in the day I'd consider a Gulfstream small....but compared to the plane I'm scooting across the country in...well...the pic says it all... I did a little photoshopping to rebrand the big bird into a livery befitting the upcoming holiday (added the Signature logo to the vest and hangar too) After all these years....kind'a diggin' the GA scene (The RXP GNS 750 I recently bought helps a lot!)
  20. Hello I have very problem GTN 750 and carenado , Prepar3D V4.
  21. To whom it may concern, I recently noticed that my P3Dv4 Academic Version does not display the vehicles on the preview window. I select the aircraft and it does not display correctly as like its missing files or something. Has anyone experienced this before? I tried registering in P3D forum to post this issue there, but i am having issues passing the authentication access because it does not make sense. I will provide a picture. Please let me know if anyone has tips!! Thanks, Reynaldo Rodriguez
