  1. After messing a lot with PTA + ENVTEX + ASP4 + ASCA i think that i will keep my settinga as they are until Spring :)
  2. I've just switched to P3DV4 and I'm trying to set up some scenarios. In P3DV3 the default groundspeed for a flight planned AI track was 250 knots. In P3DV4 it is now 1085 so any AI target runs away at a great rate of knots! Selecting the "NavLog" box on the flight planner screen shows the flight plan parameters and there is a value for estimated GS and a blank box for actual GS. The figure for estimated GS seems fixed and can't be amended. Is there a way to do this within P3D? The Learning Centre says: "GS (Kts): Each row in the GS (or ground speed) column is split into two cells: The top cell indicates the estimated ground speed, which is based on the speed of the aircraft selected when the flight plan was created; the bottom cell indicates the actual ground speed, which is calculated and updated during the flight." I can see no way to set the speed of the aircraft when creating the flight plan. Oliver from Lorby SI has suggested setting up new waypoint lists but struggling to achieve that so far.
  3. Since I have been recuperating from my hospital visit at the beginning of this month, I have really resumed simming again. Since I am on a government stipend for my disability I don't go out that much, to save gas and keep expenses down. If I ever start working again things will change, I still get requests for interviews for programming gigs but still being ill I turn them down. Thank goodness for Xplane11 and Prepare3D! They have been keeping me company and I've been enjoying both sims so much, an average of four hours a day simming. Xplane11 has my Ortho4XP scenery which extends down the west coast of North America from Southern British Columbia to the Arizona/Mexico border. It took weeks to build it but as the now flooded screenshots forum shows, the scenery has turned out quite well. That's what makes XPlane a keeper for me, the photoreal experience I now have in my favorite flying areas. P3DV4 is a Carenado bonanza for me. Carenado kept records of my FSX purchases and I was able to transfer them to my new system and P3D. Only the V35 is missing. Also, the MSE scenery is wonderful, I've covered the southwestern US. I still think back to the end of FSX and what we feared was the end of a hobby. But people like Austin and members here kept the hobby alive for us. Now sims are popping up everywhere but I will always be partial to Xplane and P3D. My study of flight has been lifelong. In 1975, in the eighth grade, I one third prize in the California State Science Fair in San Francisco for a science project I did on the Rogallo wing now commonly used in trikes and hang gliders today. I was invited by a pilot who worked for Napa's Iasco that trained JAL pilots for a flght, but a busy summer that year kept that from happening. The JAL training program finally shut down at Napa several years back. Anyway, just wanted to reiterate how much I've been enjoying the hobby lately. It took a system crash and a near fatal hospitalization to get me back in gear again! John
  4. I am guessing that this is happening because of the shadows from the dynamic light. is there any way to fix this?
  5. Enjoying the B200 over MSE California V2. Runs so much better on my new system, on my old 2.33 GHZ system fps were stymied. Carenado still had my product key and download link intact from my original purchase for FSX. John
  6. 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).
  7. Flying out of Reno down to Vegas. Stunning desert scenery, drove this same route once. John
  8. September 5, 1924: The 4th was windy and rainy to fly, so they were treated noon concert of Bag Pipers and a lobster dinner on the Canadian Destroyer Patriot. The original plan was to go to St. John Newfoundland to refuel and then proceed to Boston, but Lt Smith disagreed and wanted to fly directly to Boston. They left the harbor of the 11:15 am flying along the coast of Nova Scotia in a rain squall but soon came into good weather. They passed St. John in good weather but soon ran into fog that got thicker as they flew on. They tried to climb over and under but no avail, after a few narrow scrapes with trees Smith decided getting to Boston when the city leaders expected was not worth the risk, just before they got to Portland Maine they turned back and headed inland finding a sheltered cove on Casco Bay near Mere Point Maine, they spent the night in cabins offered by local residents. October 7, 2017: For the next flight I will be using the Douglas DC-6B. The DC-6 project started in 1944 as a lengthened and more powerful version of the DC-4 with a pressurized hull. After the war the design was reworked to compete with the Lockheed Constellation, it first flew in 1946 and 704 were built before production ended in 1958. The DC-6 was regarded by many as the ultimate piston-engine airliner from the standpoint of ruggedness, reliability, economical operation, and handling qualities. The model I am using is by JustFlight/Aeroplane Heaven and is one of my favorites. I have previously done RTW flights using this aircraft. The weather for my flight was good, clear with 7 knot winds and a temperature of 9C/47F. They flight was uneventful, I flew at 4000 feet and landed at Brunswick Executive Airport (formerly NAS Brunswick, closest airport to Mere Point), the 329 mile flight took 1.6 hours. Here are the pics Ready to go. Along the coast of Nova Scotia. Selfie! I hope she does not get board back there by herself. Along the coast of Maine. Lots of little Islands. On final into Brunswick. Secured. September 6, 1924: The flyers had not seen a newspaper since they left Scotland and expected the same passing interest when they arrived as other record setting Air Service flights. They got fuel from commercial gas stations in Brunswick so they would have enough to make it to Boston without having to stop again. As they were waiting a flight of ten DH-4’s arrived overhead, wagging there wings in greeting, they had been flown north to escort them to Boston and were lead by General Patrick, chief of the Army Air Service. Smith held up a funnel and gas can to signal the reason for the delay. After circling for a while they DH-4’s headed to Old Orchard main to wait for them. They were in the air by noon and after an uneventful flight they arrived over Boston two hours later, there was a great crowd milling around the airport, fireboats spouted water, navy ships fired there guns and every boat was blowing its whistle in salute. The cruisers landed in the harbor while the escorts landed at the airport. There planes were lifted by crane onto the navy dock where the pontoons would be swapped for wheels for the last time. The six men signed the airport entry book and were taken by automobile to the state capitol, escorted by cavalry guard, where they were welcomed by the Governor, Mayor and other military and political officials, all who whom gave short speeches. As they were lead through the city, there were cheering crowds on every street they passed. They were finally taken to the Plaza hotel were an entire floor was reserved for them. That night they dined with General Patrick, the general posted guards so it would be a quiet affair. October 7, 2017: To make a grand entrance into Boston I chose the North American F-100D. The North American F-100 Super Sabre was the first USAF fighter capable of supersonic speed in level flight. 2294 were built between 1953 and 1959, it served with the USAF until 1972 and the last was retired in 1988. The Model I am using is by Milviz and it is nice. It was foggy in Brunswick, 5 knot winds with a temperature of 16C/61F. Clouds were supposed to go up to 6000 feet so I climb up through it and proceed to Boston. The cloud thinned as I got closer to city and was able to make an easy landing at Logan Airport. They 103 mile flight took only 24 minutes. Here are the pics. Ready for takeoff. Climbing through the fog. Finally above it. Glamour Shots. Selfie! Decending into Boston. My destination is ahead. Landed. Thanks for reading. ATB.
  9. September 18, 1924: The original plan was to follow the airmail route over the Rocky Mountians through Cheyanne Wyoming and Salt lake city but the lowest point in the continental divide was 6500 feet and the airmail planes often had to fly between 8000 and 9000 feet to safely pass. Lt Smith wanting to avoid the risks of flying at that altitude decided, with General Patricks approval, to fly through Dallas Texas and San Diego California before returning to the 'official' starting point of Seattle Washington. So instead of continuing west from Omaha that morning they headed south following the Missouri river 125 miles to the town of St Joseph Missouri, there they would be treated to a luncheon by the civic leaders and watch an aerobatic show by Lt Rubin Moffatt before heading to there next stop. October 15, 2017: For the next leg I will be using the Cessna 177 Cardinal. The 177 was a “futuristic successor to the Cessna 172 with both fixed and retractable landing gear versions. Although it never really replaced the 172, at least 4295 were built between 1968 and 1979. The model I am using is the 177RG version by Alabeo and it is quite nice. Weather for the flight was clear and calm, temperature of 4C/39F. The flight itself was uneventful, followed the Missouri River south to the Rosecrahs Memorial Airport in St Joseph Missouri. The 93mn flight took 44 minutes. Here are the pics: Ready to go. Everything looks good. Cruisin. Following the Missouri River. Selfie. Nice view of the river and the fall colors. On Final. Landed. September 18, 1924: After the luncheon in St Joseph, the flyers were back in the air for Hatbox field in Muskogee, Oklahoma, where they were welcomed by a large number of planes and chartered passenger busses that had converged on the small town to welcome them. At the evenings banquet they were given gold medallions for there “Intrepid flying skills”. October 18, 1924: For the next leg I will be using the Handley Page Jetstream 200. The Jetstream is a two engine turboprop small airliner that first flew in 1967. About 67 were built by Handley Page and Scottish Aviation before the design was acquired by British Aerospace who developed it into the Jetstream 31 and 41. The model I am using is an almost finished beta by Rick Piper, and despite the fact that he did not finish the pilot seats is a great model and nice to fly. Biggest dilemma for this flight was the destination airport to use, originally they used Hatbox field, but Hatbox closed in 2000 and even though it still exists in P3D its runways are pretty small, so following the rule of what airport would I use today I will use Davis field which is the current airport for Muskogee. They weather was good for flying, clear and calm with a temperature of 10C/50F. The flight was uneventful except that ActiveSky started giving strange error messages and I had to shut it down, switching instead to the 'fair' weather scheme. The 248nm flight took 1.1 hours. Ready to go. Get the selfie out of the way. Out over the plains. Glamour Shots. Everything looks normal. Fair weather. Flying over Davis Field. Landed, Thanks for reading. ATB.
  10. Fly Tampa Kai Tak and the CLS DC-10 HD \ \
  11. Oh No, More Mountains...The Italian Alps north of Turin and into Germany. Thanks for looking, please feel free to comment...Darryl
  12. Love the Piper Sport, it trims so well for hands off flight. Flying over default scenery for a change. John
  13. Enjoying a flight to Reno, just after takeoff from Napa County Airport. Please enjoy the screenshots. John
  14. Lately I've been noticing that when trying to pull up GSX with the hotkey Shift F11, the menu doesn't always appear. It seems there might be a conflict with UTL because it will say "traffic increase" or something along those lines. However, this doesn't always happen. I was running UTL for a while with GSX and had no issues but it seems as though every few flights this occurs. Any thoughts?
  15. Flying the Citation 525 up to FL350, on my way to my hometown of Phoenix. I love the 525, back when jets were handflown with steam gauges. I have their Premier1a and Phenom, but the 525, which I bought almost by accident when their 550 wouldn't work with P3dv4, is just so pleasant an aircraft to fly. I had to modify the aircraft.cfg with use_no_default_pitch=0 to get the autopilot to function properly, otherwise it would override the selected vertical speed. Once that was adjusted I've had some incredible flights. The aircraft can be flown without the autopilot into the flight levels simply by trimming it. Sadly I can't get the NAV hold to work on it, don't know why. With or without the flight director enabled. Maybe someone who knows the aircraft can tip me off as to what to do. Please enjoy my screenshots as I compete with HLJames, LOL, for domination of photoreal screenshot sharing. John
  16. I just finished reinstalling and updating my entire PMDG suite (737,747,777) and have noticed a weird visual 'glitch'. When I look over the nose in the VC from the captain side, there is a weird greyish texture anomaly in the bottom left side of the glass that looks like a clip or something. Can anyone confirm they have this too? What is that?
  17. I have seen a bunch of contradicting information and was hoping someone in here can help clear up a few questions regarding Ultimate Traffic 2 and Ultimate Traffic Live. There are a bunch of threads on this so I was hoping to condense it into one to answer a few things I was uncertain of. Thanks! 1) What is the difference between UT2 and UTL? 2) Are either compatible with V4? - If so, is it an easy install with an installer, or is it a manual process that requires knowledge of coding, files, etc.? 3) Can you run either while online and still see the AI traffic while on Vatsim or Pilotedge? - is there anything out there that allows you to see AI online if UT cannot? 4) Do either of these require any other software to populate airports and see liveries, particularly at high end payware airports (Flightbeam, Imaginesim, etc.)? Thanks!
  18. Hello Everyone, I need some help on choosing the best monitor in market for P3D V4. Between a 4k and an ultrawide (21:9) with 1440p resolution, which would bring the best immersion and performance? I´m thinking of buying a 34" display with a refresh rate greater than 100Hz and G-sync technology (I have a GTX 1070). Is there any other spec that I should include in my search? Perhaps response time? From my research I´ve learned that performance with a 4k resolution isn´t affected drastically since P3D´s engine is mostly CPU bound. Is this true? Will I see a lot of difference between 4k and 1440p? Does a 21:9 aspect ratio has big benefits over a 16:9 with regards to immersion? Please help... My Rig: ROG Maximus Hero VIII i7 6700@4.6ghz Nvidia GTX 1070 16Gb Ram
  19. Just noticed that AS has pushed a new update out for V4.
