  1. Why I can't decide

    In 1984, when I bought my first computer, the "portable Commodore SX-64" with a built in five inch screen (, LOL, I dreamed of what flight sims might become. I bought the computer at my oldest brother's urging for $500, he told me over and over again how important it was to learn computing. I did NOT want to become a computer nerd or video game Nut. But my brother insisted. I had just come home from a month long trip to Europe in 1984, which tanked my bank account leaving about $600 left over. I made the plunge, and bought the computer simply because of Sublogic's stencil graphic flightsim. As time went on I studied simming in earnest. I switched from a Commodore to an Atari ST, a color knockoff of the Apple computer. I got the Atari ST for the next version of Flightsim, which had framerates that jumped from the 4-8 fps of the C64 to over 18fps, so "fluid", LOL! To backtrack, in 1983 I interviewed at a hotel, I wanted to move from a low paying retail, part time job to a higher paying, full time job at a hotel. I was asked if I worked on computers, I said no, and never heard from them again. Two years later, after my brother had me buy a computer, I was still fresh and learning, I went back to that hotel. Once again, I was asked if I worked on computers, to which I replied "I own one". I was hired on the SPOT. I became their Rooms manager, and programmed all their sales and marketing data using code similar to Fortran or RPG. I was not, and still am mostly not, set out to be a programmer. I became a business systems teacher, traveling worldwide for the tourism industry, and along the way joined Avsim and got to know Tom Allensworth. During my brief visits at home, and picking up a beautiful bride during my journeys, who worked for an airline (of course but we did not join the mile high club), I passionately simmed and eventually was asked to be a forum mod. I was given high privleges but due to my work at that time, I just could not handle the dual pro bono roles. I pleaded with Tom to make me a Muggle again, and he did. Maybe I will become a mod here again if asked, I believe in fair and open exchange of our community and hobby. To get to the point, I just love Xplane11 and P3DV4 to death. They both have different approaches, but great hands holding up us student pilots, wannabe pilots, and real pilots in simming. Simming is not a "shoot 'em up" hobby, although I love the way some warbirds like the Spitfire, Mosquito, Mustang and Lightning are commemorated in the hobby. The other day, when I saw that Austin was including a FAR 103 ultralight in his sim, I was in sim heaven and rushed to get their beta. I have already put an ultralight trike out their for FS9, FSX and P3D. Now both sims have come full circle and they compliment each other. I think a hard core simmer must try both, even the other sims that are growing and out there. Thanks for letting me rant about simming and being a bore. WARNING, DO NOT READ THIS POST MORE THAN ONCE, MY BORING ALLITERATION MIGHT HYPNOTIZE YOU AND MAKE YOU THINK YOU ARE HARRISON FORD, PILOTING THE MILLENNIUM FALCON, AND LANDING ON THE TAXIWAY TO AVOID JABBA THE HUT AND THE BOUNTY HUNTERS...
  2. A couple images from a recent flight. You should see it in 4k....its amazing.
  3. Don't mind the flying, just testing out some new settings. Mods: URP v1.2 Reshade PTA Sunlight Scatter Mod REX Sky Force 3D OrbX NorCal/Global/Vector
  4. Milviz has been very busy with the King Air 350i for quite some time. Every now and then I come across a post here at AVSIM that illustrates a complete lack of understanding just how much effort and energy is put into crafting a hardcore aircraft for FSX/P3D, one that is simulated with high accuracy, with very high fidelity, both visually and as far as system depth is concerned. The same goes for scenery, there is run-of-the-mill scenery and then there is scenery like PILOT'S Almeria Airport (LEAM), highly detailed, immensely immersive. The screenshots below are taken from a dawn departure this morning out of Almeria Airport on a test flight with the latest Milviz King Air 350i Beta.
  5. Scenery, MSE California and Nevada V2 Aircraft, Carenado Seneca Carenado's Seneca now works in P3DV4 and my FSX license was accepted for P3D, always good legacy support from Carenado!
  6. P3D Temporarily Freezes

    Hello everybody, So I recently ran into an issue while flying out of London-Heathrow and London-Gatwick. Every minute of so my sim freezes, sound continues and everything else stops. After around 30 seconds the sim then unfreezes and continues as normal. I've managed to eliminate an airplane issue as this happened in the PMDG and the FSlabs and I'm 75% sre its not a scenery issue and I've tried with Aerosoft EGLL disabled and UK2000 EGKK disabled. This is only in the London area aswell as I do flights in the US all the time and this has never happened. Any Ideas? - Lenny
  7. Hi everybody! I am using the FreeMesh X since it came out. Never had problems with it. But today I was flying to Gran Canaria after quite a long time (I think the first time under P3Dv4.2) and now I had mesh issues. To be honest, I already tried different (freeware-) meshes, and all had this problem in Gran Canaria. Only the Default mesh looks good. Eh, no, it doesn't look good. It's just working without issues. FMX is placed just above the Bathymetry-Entry in the scenery library, but I also tried disabling all non-Default entries and placed the FMX-Entries at the top of the scenery library, and still these issues remain. So I am sure that it has to be an incompatibility between the Mesh and Default P3D... I am not using FTX Vector. I also looked at the mesh in the TMF Viewer, but everything seems to be fine. Maybe you have an idea what is wrong here. Thank you very much in advance! Kind regards

  10. So I've only just noticed this issue with Fly Tampa CYYZ. The ground texures are super blurry but the taxiway signs and markings are all still great quality. The runway is also the default runway but with an almost overlay of the Fly tampa runway markings - there is the exact same issue with the apron aswell. Every other Fly Tampa product of mine is perfectly fine and has no issues. I feel like I managed to fix this issue a long time ago but I unfortunately cant remember how I did it. Any ideas? - Lenny
  11. Have FSX many years now and think that MS won't go forward. Flew a lot of long hauls with PMDG's B777-200LR and although liked very much to fly short routes with business jet I became a fan of this product with its many options to assign keyboards to work as button and it's my very best airplane. I bought Prepar3D v4, updating to v4.2 and would like very much to have this splendid aircraft. If I buy PMDG's 777-200LR for Prepar will it work in v4.2 or I'll need to make any kind of upgrade/update? Tks and sorry if this was answered somewhere but it's my 1st experience with Prepar3D4 (never had any Prepar before).
  12. Hi all, What is the current version that everyone is running? My CP version is currently v0.3.70 Beta, however, I read a post further down and someone has they are currently on 0.3.79 (not sure if a typo). I still get a message every time CP starts informing me that it isn't compatible with P3Dv4.2 and it is being worked on, but it has been 2 weeks now and I was wondering when this will be made compatible as I can't use zoom keys or my hatswitch properly in locked spot, which is extremely annoying. Or has there been an update released and for some reason I have an updating issue? Thanks in advance, Mick.
  13. I can't find a way to change the altitude selector knob from 1000 FPM to 100 FPM increments. I'm sure its something simple but I can't find it. Many thanks Best Regards John
  14. The standby indicator below the MCP is not visible to me. All I see is a square grey blank where the indicator should be. It has writing on it that reads "ISFD heading from left IRS only", I reviewed the manual which shows the indicator in section 10. How do I get this to display? Thanks Dom
  15. I have tried updating the AIRAC (Navigraph) but it is not being recognized in the FMC. I have checked and the AIRAC has installed into the NavData file. I would appreciate it if someone could advise the correct path to use. Many thanks Best Regards John

  18. Hello Keven, As i hear (read) several rumors as to Chase Plane has to be updated to work properly in P3Dv4.2, just want to know what is the situation up to now? Do we have to expect an update/fix for P3Dv4.2 or is it working as it is? Untill now i am still on P3Dv4.1...
  19. UPDATE REPORT After applying the Client update version 4.2 I can confirm the following: AI Lights Reborn Free Edition is fully compatible with Prepard3D 4.2, no issues found. Ultimate Traffic Live (UTL) works fine with version 4.2 EZDOK has issues with nose steering, the work around until an updated version is available is to disable the Fuselage Shakes effects. An update is now available to make it fully compatible with 4.2: ASCA will not run with 4.2, you will need to install the ASP4 Open Beta Update 021218 from HiFi directly as the ASCA update will not notify you about it. Flight1 GTN version 2.04 don't work with 4.2, You need to install version 2.05 of GTN Complete which is now available on the flight 1 website. PMDG 737NGx loaded without any problems. Bets Regards, Simbol
