  1. Hello everybody, is there any experience on wether MCE works "out of the box" with the new CaptainSim B757 III in P3DV4? Thanks, Dominik

  3. Hi everyone, I joined Avsim July 13, 2007, and since then I've somehow managed to have 1000 things to say on these forums (I'm sure not all 1000 were gems ) To celebrate hitting this milestone I thought I'd share a selection of shots from recent flights. Thanks to everyone who make these forums a great place to discuss and learn more about this hobby we love. Dave

  5. Can someone help me with middle mouse? I pressed something on last flight and I lost my middle button. Now when I try to set up camera doesn't show zoom. Wasted two hrs....MM is dead. Anyone has idea what I've done? Thanks
  6. Hey Guys, I just noticed. I occasionally go to check for updates thru OC, however today when I opened my OC and when I tried to select any product it shows I have none and I own all....No liveries, no manuals....nothing. Any idea? What I am missing? Thanks P.S. When I go to P3D and choose the vehicle, everything is there, so clearly I have them, but what happened with product in OC? I have no idea.
  7. 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!
  8. Has anyone successfully put Dual 650s into the A36? Restul?
  9. On final into Albuquerque, nice wing view....
  10. I spent some time trying to find out what might be happening with regard to Instant Scenery. Over at SimForums there are several treads unanswered for long periods. Not even a clue if this application is dead in the water. I would have thought by now a simple answer would have been possible. Does anyone have any information on this applications status? Bryan
  11. I am just wondering if there are any rumors out there of any updates to any good payware versions of KORD in 2018. I know FSdreamteam is planning on an update but I couldn't see much on their progress. Are there any other projects planned? It is a shame we don't have an up to date, quality O'Hare at this point.
  12. Hehe...only in flightsim is this statement not "inflammatory" Just finished my new PC update after a complete Windows 10 "update" meltdown. (well still adding some addons). Went from a 4790k which I loved, to an 8700k...which screams! Anyway, did a flight in my CJ2 and the trusty RXP GTN keeping me from getting lost...and thought I'd post my 1st screen with the new rig. After I passed the the WAZZU waypoint outside of Juneau, my wife asked where my plane was. I told her to look at the screen, just up from she quips back....."oh so you're up the WAZZU?" It got a laugh so I had to share it! So in the future you can fly there to say you've been up the WAZZU in Juneau!
  13. Hello, I'm looking to buy a plane for short hops (example:Brussels-Madrid) and I am into private bussines jets. I was looking at the Carenado - E50P Phenom 100 and the Carenado - EMB505 Phenom 300. What do you guys think about these aircraft or do you have other suggestions? Please let me know. PS. I like glass cockpits
  14. Will the current version of Topcat play nicely with P3DV4? Dom
  15. Hello All Last night I was trying to add the GTN625 to the XP GLJ25, but I've come across an bug. If I add the GTN625 just as a window, the aircraft works as I should and I'm able to turn the Radio Master switch ON, but from the moment that I add the GTN to the VC First Optional Panel, the switch is stuck in the off position. Even if I change the power supply for the unit, the problem persists . Has anyone come across such a problem or is it possible that the problem is on my end for not configuring the GTN properly ? Best Regards Nuno Guedes
  16. Hi, I bought and installed P3Dv4 a few days ago but allowed it to install into the program folder instead of directly onto the C drive. I then bought and installed the PMDG 737NGX for P3Dv4 which automatically installed into the P3D folder and also added various scenery packages which are also in the P3D folder. I now find, on reading the PMDG instructions in the operation center (which clearly I should have done first) that the 737NGX should be installed directly onto the C drive. The PC has two SSDs. It seems to me that the cleanest way for me to sort this out is to restore my PC to a previous date (I have images of both drives taken a few weeks ago) and thus clear out everything - P3Dv4 / PMDG 737 / ORBX etc, and start again, this time installing P3Dv4 directly onto the C drive and then allowing the PMDG 737 to install into the P3D folder. Does this seem like an acceptable solution and will my original ID and key allow me to reinstall and reactivate the PMDG 737 ? Any advice would be much appreciated, Philip McComiskey Ireland
  17. I set up a few paused test flights using ActiveSky historic weather and loaded textures (and structures) from ASCA, ENVTEX and SkyForce into P3Dv4 to compare the clouds. After setting up the testflights I shut down AcitveSky to make sure each situation would be the exact same. Take note that in between loading the textures of the programs I always restored the default textures (using the SkyForce restore option) before I installed the new textures and I cleared the shader cache each time. These screenshots can be reproduces exactly on my PC. I took all screenshots twice (from ENVTEX to ASCA to SkyForce to ENVTEX to ASCA to SkyForce) and the screenshots from each addon were the EXACT same every single time: each and every puff of cloud showed up in the same spot and the same way. So there weren't any leftovers from other cloud addons when I loaded another one. And this also proves the situation (weather etc.) was the exact same for every test. Of course these shots only show one texture set of each addon... and also the dynamic option of ASCA or the syncing of SkyForce can't be seen here. But what you can see, is how the textures from each addon show up differently in each screenshot using the EXACT same conditions. ENVTEX = Set 1 (clouds and cirrus) ASCA = Exultant (clouds: Silk and cirrus: Sublime) SkyForce = Set 1 (clouds and cirrus) First conclusions There are clear differences but I think a lot of them are due to the texture sets which were being used. Like ENVTEX shows the softest of all but maybe another ENVTEX set would show different. However, when it comes to how a single set of textures shows up in the sim using the exact same weather I notice this: ENVTEX has very little variation ASCA has more variation but quite often in size, not in shape, making things look a bit busy SkyForce has the most variation, so not just in size but also in shapes: skies also look more full and more overcast. However not all shapes look good (some are too flat or have straigh edges) Comparison 1 ENVTEX ASCA SkyForce Comparison 2 ENVTEX ASCA SkyForce Comparison 3 ENVTEX ASCA SkyForce Comparison 4 ENVTEX ASCA SkyForce
  18. Addons used ENVTEX FTX Norway (+ FTX Global) AS16 FS Labs A320 EZdok v2
  19. Having some weather in the tropics so decided to take a short-hop between Vila (NVVV) and Brisbane (YBBN), real-time weather as of 30th Jan 2018, 2300z. Addons used: PMDG NGX, ActiveSky P4, REX SkyForce, EZDOK 2, FTX Global/Vector and Ant's YBBN
  20. I got all the ReShade and PTA, URP and P3D issues worked out with the help of the wonderful AVSIM forums. Been playing around with peoples presets, and I like all of varying degrees...but having trouble settling in on one. So, take a look at the pics, and lmk what you like best! The presets are from either AviationLads (, Pilot Pete (, or the FlightBeam Visual Pack ( In all of the presets I have my settings the same in P3D and am getting a solid 30-50fps on the ground with PMDG aircraft at FSDT JFK, and 40-60fps in the air. I have fps locked to 65 in the nVidia inspector tool. I can share my settings if you want. FlightBeam Preset Aviation Lads Cold Season preset Pilot Pete: My thoughts are that Aviation Lads and FlightBeam are the top contenders. Pilot Pete is good but a bit bland for me, although it looks much better in his pics I think thats cause he has tons of addon scenery like ORBX, etc, and does a lot of VFR low flying. LMK what you think! Also, if any of you know the settings to reduce the brightness on the sun hitting the aircraft without turning down overall sim brightness...lmk too :) Have a great rest of the weekend!
