  1. Hello to all, We are a very small team that may be swimming against the current, but some of us think that Prepar3d still has things to share...! SwissMilSim is about to release the Venom DH-112 for P3Dv4 and P3Dv5. And I just wanted to show you a video of this nice little Swiss Army fighter that was in service between 1946 and 1990... Even if everybody lives only for MSFS..., this model has been very well done, and we hope it will get the support it deserves. Good video to all!
  2. This module is provides most of the important functions for buttons, knobs and switches for the FSLabs A319X, A320X, A321X and new A320SL and A321SL (Sharklet) variants. It has been tested with the LINDA 3.3, P3Dv5.3 HF1 and FSUIPC 6.1.7. This update adds partial implementation of the VRInsight Combo 2 MCP(Boeing) and FCU(Airbus) displays based on the latest FSL Hardware Interface information. It does not work with the original MCP1 panel. The following items are not implemented: Speed Managed Mode dot. Altitude Managed Mode dot. Vertical Speed input and display. Speed Mach input does not display correct mach number until released. FPA Heading input does not include magnetic variation (reads course only). IMPORTANT = This module has been renamed to FSLabs A3xx to allow it to work with all variants. You will need to copy your existing config-hid.lua and config-mcpX.lua files from the /modules/linda-cfg/FSLabs A320X/ folder to /modules/linda-cfg/FSLabs A3xx/ folder. A list of all available functions is contained in the download. NOTE: Some functions have been renamed and reorganised to avoid confusion and allow the pop up menus to be displayed on screen. Installation: Use the Aircraft Module installation functionality on the Maintenance page of LINDA 3.2.x. Alternatively, manually copy the content of this archive in your /FSUIPC6 folder. Your current configurations will not be overwritten, but always make a backup before starting. With this version you need all 4 MCRO files to make the overhead switches work! The MCRO are part of the download. Copy these file into you /FSUIPC6 folder. They cover only the majority overhead and pedestals buttons (Fuel pumps, battery, master caution, APU, MDCU). FSLabs A3xx module 3.1a - Compatible with VRI MCP2 (Boeing) and MCP2A (Airbus) only FSLabs A3xx module v1.5 - Compatible with VRI MCP1(Original) NOTE: FSLA320-SX, FSL321-SX, FSLA320-SL and FSLA321-SL .MCRO (mouse macro) files are needed to make the above functions working! Insert the MCRO files into your FSUIPC6 folder. This version requires the addition of LUA socket/http module. Ensure /LUA folder and contents copied into your FSUIPC6 folder. 3.1 Fixed issue with missing LUA sockets module 3.0 Added macros for -SL Shaklet variants. Fix to MCDU 2, 5 and I keys. Fix to Overhead Fuel and other selections. Fix to Mouse Macros for all variants. Changed function naming to standardise. 2.3 Fixed missing LUA Sockets functions 2.2 Added VRI MCP display functions 2.1 Fix to HDG/TRK/FPA default on start up Fix to MCP/FCU default configuration settings 2.0 Adds FCU display for VRInsight MCP2 and FCU 1.5 Fixes incorrect .MCRO references Fixes ADR1, ADR2 and ADR3 buttons 1.4 Fix to FD and LS both functions Fixes to Fuel Pumps to ensure compatibility with A321 (some function name changes) 1.3 Fix for All taxi lights.

  3. HI all, This request is directed at owners of P3D v4 only. Can you locate to two default airports and advise the number of parking positions available please? This is easily done if you have GSX by displaying the menu. CTRL+Shift+F12. Otherwise count the number in the Scenario Airport option. They are KFAT - Fresno, CA and LPPR Porto, Portugal. KFAT has only 5 parking positions in v5 but in v3.4 there are 13 gates and 15 parking positions. LPPR has 5 gates, 5 parking positions and 1 fuel ramp in v5. In v3.4 there are 6 gates and 23 parking positions. Can you advise how many are listed in v4 please? I want to use this info to point out to LM there are serious deficiencies in v5 that require correction. Not much point having AIG Ai when there are so few parking positions available.
  4. Hi all, when flying airliners, I pretty much only fly routes that are operated in real life with the accurate aircraft, time of day etc. So every once and a while an unusual route and or route/aircraft combination will pop up on flightaware that gives me something unusual to fly. In this case, it involves my home airport, Halifax/YHZ so I was all over it. Air Canada has been operating a few rescue flights to Casablanca and one to Barcelona, all originating in YHZ (a stopover from YYZ). As I understand it, this is for crew hour purposes so they don't have to remain at the outstation overnight. So with that in mind, I flew ACA7052, a YHZ-BCN positioning flight for a rescue to follow BCN-YYZ. At the YHZ gate boarding the crew Holding short for a Runway 14 departure. Only 7700 feet but for a 787 carrying nothing but fuel and crew, no problem! Showing off it's beautiful wings flexing as we climb out of YHZ Dodging Thunderstorms on the decent to BCN On final for 07R at BCN Let's get loaded up and head back home! Thanks for looking. Stay healthy, and wash your hands! Dave
  5. And beyond? 🙂 Not a big fan of logo jets....but Pixar is an exception. 🙂 (love their movies)
  6. Flying from PAJN to PAKT....ran (or flew more appropriately) into this waypoint that inspired the title of this post. 🙂 Love flying the TBM in Alaska!
  7. Hey, i don't know what to do. I installed the driver, LINDA and set the COM4 as in the device manager displayed. Furthermore I do have a FSLabs 3xx Profile installed but no connection. When I start my sim, the FCU light flashes shortly and the display resets but after 1 sec everything is "standard" again. (With the Airbus Type v1.100...blabla). DELETED - DO NOT POST LOGS ON FORUM What can I do? Please help! ❤️ Regards PS: Is there any log file I can show to you?
  8. My first shots here... <a href="https://www.casimages.com/i/17030510163716140514894007.jpg.html" title="Mon image">Lien vers mon image</a>
  9. New Zealand Having just arrived in Auckland (see here) I've taken on this impulsive trip to the South Island, taking in Queenstown and Milford Sound. The scenery was spectacular... Approaching Queenstown... Parked up Off to Milford Sound Unloading at Milford Sound About to head back to Auckland Away from the mountains and starting the approach into Auckland I vectored myself in quite tight for a visual (just an excuse for my sloppy flying) Taxiing in, mixing with the big boys Parked up on a random made up charter ramp (evidently somewhere near the cargo centre) This is a small selection of shots taken, see here for the full album (I'd only recommend it if you like shots of mountains and clouds) try here
  10. Hey guys So, after a month or so of a bit more tweaking, I'm finally able to say that I'm very happy with how my P3Dv4 looks and feels. Now, I only have to wait for the Aerosoft A320 to be available for P3Dv4 and I'll be very happy 😁 Anyways, time for a bit more flying, on the PMDG 737 again, on Virgin Australia Flight 908 from Brisbane to Sydney. Pushback Taxiing to Brisbane's Runway 19 Waiting for QF16 from LAX to burn some rubber Up and away, tight left coming up! Cruising fase And after an hour or so, we begin our descent towards Sydney's runway 16L Hey down there 👀 Brakes on! It'll be gate Delta 40 this time And that's it! (Pardon the turned front wheel 😅) Hope you guys liked them! Safe flights and have a great weekend.
  11. We come from the Atlantic coast of Morocco and head north towards Gibraltar (Aerosoft Gibraltar, Just Flight Curtiss C-46) I hope these shots don’t come across as too dark Crossing the Strait of Gibraltar Gibraltar comes into view Hmmmh…no PAPI lights Thanks for viewing
  12. On final approach: On the way to Sweden: Approaching Athens: Approaching Frankfurt: And departing Lanzarote:
  13. July 7 1924: In Karachi the flyers were hosted to a dinner by the RAF officers, the first time they had dinner with ladies* present since leaving the states, in a speech the base commander reminded them they had traveled 12,577 miles since leaving Seattle, father than anyone before, but still had over 14000 to go. With the help of the British mechanics they spent two days replacing the engines on there three aircraft, they worked during the day and spent the evenings having dinners at the homes of various British officials. The morning of July 7 they were up at 3am for breakfast and were in the air by 6:30 for Chahabar Persia (now Iran). They flew over sand, ancient lava flows and mountains which Arnold described as the “most lonesome, barren and desolate place imaginable”. Shortly after noon they crossed into Persia and descended on a small port city on the Gulf of Oman. * I assume 'Ladies' means upper class women of European extraction. September 6, 2017: For the next flight we will be using the Consolidated B-24. As I am sure you all know, the B-24 is a four engine bomber that first flew in 1939. Designed with a efficient high aspect ratio Davis wing, the B-24 could had a high cruise speed, long range and a heavy bomb load at the expense of being difficult to fly and having poor low speed performance. While the aircrews preferred the B-17, the general staff preferred the B-24 and it was produced in very large numbers, over 19000 were built making it the most produced multi engine American military aircraft in history. The aircraft I am using today was produced by Virtavia and despite being a FSX model works well in P3Dv4. It’s a bit difficult to fly but once you remove the bomb payload it becomes much easier. My flight to Chabahar was pretty easy, weather was good, 9 knot winds with scattered clouds at 3000 feet and a temperature of 27.8C/82F. We flew at 4000 feet along the coast of the Gulf of Oman and landed at Konarak Airport, the 358 nm flight had taken 2.2 hours. One historical note, after crashing in Alaska, Sergeant Harvey completed flight training in 1926 and was commissioned as an officer. In September 1941 he flew over 3150 miles in a B-24 to carry a lend-lease delegation to Moscow, he then continued around the world through India, Australia, Wake island and Hawaii, Here are a few pics from the flight. Ready for takeoff. Engines running. Airbourn. Check the gauges. Selfie! Along the gulf of Oman. Glamour shots. Landed. July 7, 1924: In Chahabar they were met by a representative of the Indo-European telegraph company who had arranged there supplies. The fliers quickly refueled there aircraft as they ate the sandwiches supplied by the wife of the British. They were in the air again at 2:35 for Bandar Abbass. The four hour flight was uneventful and when they landed in Bandar Abbass they were greeted by Mr Richardson, the British Consul who had volunteered to act as there advance agent in the area. September 7, 2017: For the next flight we will be using the Supermarine Spitfire. As I am sure you all know the Spitfire was the star fighter of the RAF for most of World War 2. First flying in 1936 the Spitfire was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft and the only British fighter to be in continuous production throughout the war with the last being built in 1948 after over 20,000 were built. The model I am using today is a Mark IX and was produced by RealAir and is one of my favorites (great shame they shut down). The weather for takeoff was good, 6 knot winds, few clouds at 2000, temperature of 27.7C/82F I flew along the coast of the Gulf of Oman at 4000 feet and after a short time ran into increasingly thicker cloud layer that forced me to descend to 1000 feet to keep the coast in view. I landed at Havadarya Airport, Bandar Abbass after flying 249 nm in 1.3 hours. Here are a few screenshots: Ready for takeoff. Selfie! Glamour Shots Flying along the Gulf of Oman Clouds ahead. Staying low to keep under the clouds. Following the coast. Landed.
  14. Hi guys, I noticed that there were a few people here waiting for P3D v4 installers for airports such as L35 Big Bear City Airport and 2O3 Angwin Pattett-Field so I just wanted to give you a heads up that we just updated all of our products to support P3D v4 along with a load of new features for all simulator platforms. Here's the update: https://www.turbulentdesigns.co.uk/updated-p3d-v4-installers-2o3-l35-kmbs-turbulent-terminal/ Thanks, Russ
  15. Hi all, Did I make a mistake when updating/downloading my C172RG Cutlass for Prepar3D v4 ? The FuelFlow and RadioDME gauge are INOP, confirmed by the contenterror.txt : Some other issue as well with the clock and Radio_KR87. Other C172RG customer can check their contenterror.txt on Prepar3Dv4 to see if you have the same error ? Remark : its hard to know the version, but the .exe (ALC172RGX.exe) installer date is 06/19/2017 (downloaded from Alabeo web site with a new serial).
  16. Hi Everyone, So I bit the bullet and downloaded, installed and test-flew v4 for a few minutes today. I've also been fiddling with X-plane 11 as of late. I would suggest holding off on moving past v3 until the addons come out, as the performance increase I noticed doesn't offset all of the stuff the default sim lacks. The default scenery is pretty much the same- same airports, same crappy night lighting, horrible colored ground textures...Also, we just learned today that PTA is not going to be updated for v4 either. So, unless developers intervene or someone out there knows how to manipulate shaders we're pretty much stuck with default lighting. Without ORBX, AS16, ENVTEX, most of my addon sceneries, my PMDG aircraft, UTLive and GSX, there's just no point. Default X-plane 11 is much nicer, and that's not saying much. At least all they need to do is improve sounds in aircraft, come up with a good traffic injector and beef up their weather engine. So, I guess both 64bit platforms are not developed enough to provide the same level of immersion I have in v3 at the moment. So, unless you are happy with default, I'd hold off until all of the updates and addons roll out in order to enjoy the sim. From what I gather in some of the forums, it can be weeks or longer before some key elements are tested, updated and available. I'm not saying it's not worth buying, but why bother if the addon world isn't able to catch up? I really think LM screwed up a great opportunity to dazzle the market by not allowing more beta copies to get in the hands of developers ahead of release. Of course, X-plane also came out without some basic essentials as well. Welcome to the banner year of flight simulation... So, back to v3 I go, happily flying in my perfectly-tweaked, yet constrained by VAS system for a little while longer. John
  17. June 4, 1924: They stayed aboard Black Hawk the next day while they waited for the Navy ships to get into position at Shanghai. On the 4th they awoke to excellent weather, the water was so calm and the winds so light that there heavy aircraft had great difficulty getting airborne. Lt Smith was not able to get Chicago in the air, he waved the other aircraft on toward China. He taxied back to the mooring and spent the rest of the of the day swimming under there plane repairing a strip of metal that had torn away from one of the pontoons. The next morning Black Hawk sent two motor boats to kick up the water so Chicago could get airborne and follow the other two aircraft toward China. Boston and New Orleans continued in the best weather they had experienced since they left Seattle, As they approached the Yangtze river they could see thousands of junks, sampans, river boats and large steam ships all trying to avoid each other. Several miles of water front had been cleared for there landing space, Once they landed and battled the rapid river currents to tie their craft up to the buoy’s, an excursion boat containing hundreds of Americans and Europeans came to welcome them and give the flyers a historic reception, a huge crowd of people were on shore clamoring to meet them. After they flyers finished their work on the planes they were taken to the luxurious Hotel Astor in downtown Shanghai. Smith arrived the next day to the same reception. July 30, 2017: For the next couple legs I will be flying the Douglas DC-3. The DC-3 started life as an enlarged 14 bed sleeper version of the DC-2 but it revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940s, it could carry more passengers in greater comfort than ever before, over 600 were built before world war 2 and more than 16,000 were built during the war, about 2000 are still in service around the world today. The model I am using today is version 3 of the C-47 made by Manfred Jahn and team and is one of my favorite aircraft. My flight from Kagoshima to Shanghai started off with low clouds and 4 mile visibility, Flying at 3000 feet over the hills to the west and out over the East China Sea. The overcast changed to scattered clouds and the rest of the flight was pretty easy as we cruised at 5000 ft into Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport. The 459 nm flight had taken 2.9 hours to complete. Here are a few pic of the flight. Ready at Kagoshima. Take off. Heading out over the hills. Clear weather. Glamour Shots. First sight of China! On Final. Parked, Pudong International Airport June 7, 1924: The original plan was to fly to 600 miles to Amoy (Xiamen) but not wanting to try to take off with a heavy load of fuel in the crowded harbor Lt Smith worked out with the destroyer captains that they would take off with only five hours of fuel and fly 350 miles to Tchinkoen bay where one of the destroyers would be positioned for refueling, they would then continue Amoy. On the morning of the 7th the harbor master was not able to clear a path. All three planes had to abort there first takeoff attempts to avoid colliding with a unheeding sampans Smith and Wade finally saw an opening and took off, but when Nelson in New Orleans tried again he had to swerve right to avoid a Junk, then plunging up river at high speed had to pull up hard to avoid a large sampan, missing it by inches. Flying along the coast they arrived at the destroyer off the china coast after four and a half hours of flying. August 1, 2017: I will again be flying Manfred Jahn’s C-47. Best I could figure Tchinkoen is actually Yueqing Bay, and the closest airport is at Wenzhou, about 25 miles away. Even then P3D did not have that airport but I found a simple scenery file on Flightsim.com created by Kevin Wynn that would meet my needs. The weather started out nice, 18kn winds a few clouds at 2400 feet. Temperature read at 93F/34C. Took off from Shanghai and headed south along the coast at 5000 feet. The clouds built up as I approached Wenzhou and I dropped to about 1500 feet in the rain to stay below the weather before dropping into the Wenzhou airport for a safe landing. The 201 mile flight took 1.7 hours. Here are a few pics. Ready for a dawn takeoff. Climbing out of Shanghai. Heading out over the coast islands. Glamour Shots. More islands. Weather ahead. Our destination. Secure.
  18. Finally after many hours of work with the scenery of Northern part of Turkey, I have now made the first flight to Istanbul in P3Dv4. Departure airport Billund as requested by Johan_Dees. Aircraft as always, PMDG 737..with the wear and tear repaint LN-RPZ "Bera Viking"
