  1. Are there any realistic settings or "musts" that I need to use in order to get the most realistic looking clouds and weather within V4? I am using ASCA, AS for V4, and PTA. I was going to do some tweaks tonight and was looking to see what most tubeliner folks like the best. I use Dynamic mode in ASCA and always file a flight plan in AS when doing a flight. I also load VOR and NDB's as routes. Any other suggestions? I have a higher end machine so I can afford to push the limits in terms of performance. Thanks
  2. I finally got around to downloading the new KORD runways that are in the file library but am having trouble getting them into v4. Are the instructions different inv3 vs. v4? I selected it in the scenery library but nothing changes. Do I need to change its priority or something? Any help would be appreciated.
  3. Can anyone tell me if these work well in 4.1? Thanks.
  4. I have finally got around to installing FS2Crew for the Majestic Dash8 Q400 onto my Steam FSX. No matter what Keys I bind, no action for Main or Secondary panels. I did have FS2Crew working on my MD11, so, I think I understand the key assignment process. However, this was on a normal FSX machine installed on the D: drive. The Majestic is installed under C:\programs on my FSX Steam machine and is my main FSX simulator now. I do have UAC turned off and no issues with other programs with permission problems. I have It must be a key assignment problem, because I can open the FS2Crew Main Panel via the VIEWS -> INSTRUMENTS PANEL menu. Also, when I click the button on my joystick, an action cycles though the information window and the FO responds. So, my issue is getting the process to talk to the key assignment...I will post this, but in the mean time, I will remove and reinstall FS2Crew to see if this helps. Before I start removing FSX-SE and re-installing outside of the C:\programs, I wanted to know what should appear in the panel.cfg for the Majestic for FS2Crew to be happy? I did notice these changes to the panel.cfg, which appear ok. All windows open manually. Window21=FS2Crew Main Panel Window22=FS2Crew Marshaller Panel Window23=FS2Crew PA Panel Window24=FS2Crew Briefing Panel and then at the bottom of the entries, below the [Vcockpit00] color, and default view was the 4 FS2Crew Windows.

  5. Collection of shots from my most recent flights cheers
  6. ... and hopefully I'll get some from FlyTampa. KBUF Buffalo Niagara International Airport looks really nice from distance, I had a lot of fun with it while updating the AFD. At the moment I'm visting a lot of my old airports, used them last a long time ago. Bad! But it's my fault. Anyway: FlyTampa Airports are one of the best! Have also fun with your old ones! Urmel
  7. A while back I heard about and started using Flai models for AI traffic coupled with AIG flightplans. After watching a youtube video on how to install the flightplans, I spent a few hours doing so and they work great! However, the airline density slider in P3dv4 doesn't seem to affect the number of ai aircraft at all. Anything between 1-100 gives the same number of commercial airplanes. I have checked this at several airports including KSFO, KORD, KSEA, OMDB, EDDM, EGLL, etc. If I set the slider to 0, then it turns the traffic off. I don't mind the visuals because it's great to see the extensive amount of aircraft at gates, taxiing, taking off, landing, etc but it really hits the performance hard so I want to limit the aircraft at busier airports. Any thoughts on why the slider only turns traffic on (setting 1-100) or off (setting 0) instead of also setting the amount of aircraft? Is there a way to fix that or is it the nature of using Flai with AIG flightplans? Thanks!
  8. I am curious as to what benefits I would get by buying pfpx or using simbrief. Currently when do I g a domestic USA flight, I get my flights flight plan from FlightAware and fuel from topcat. When entering the cockpit, I go into the fmc, randomize the cargo and payload and then use the fuel that was given in topcat. So my question is, what additional information would I be getting from simbrief that I'm not currently getting with my current method? On top of that, what would the $50 fee of pfpx give me over simbrief or my current process. I also add the average wind into the fmc that I get from active sky. Please help me understand the uses for these. Thanks!!
  9. Switzerland & Some Good Radials...as in the Engines Of course some good free photo-scenery doesn't hurt...flight from Zurich to Grenchen, Switzerland I know a little much but wanted to show a complete flight this time...Darryl
  10. I bought the NYC airports x packages and have kewr an kjfk and the regional airports installed correctly. However, I had imaginesim lga installed prior to. I tried uninstalling klga from imaginesim but it is still there. The NYC x lga doesn't seem to take priority and the imaginesim scenery seems to stick there. Any tips on getting rid of that so NYC x can take over?
  11. Hello, I received an email from SimMarket today announcing an update for the Milviz C310R Cessna. I downloaded the update and installed it into P3Dv4. The filename included a V4 bit. Is this for V4? If so, it doesn't work: missing or blank textures etc. Thanks.
  12. Just showing some shots of the Premier 1A over Colorado and Utah. This little bird can almost keep up with the heavy iron. I increased my performance with it by lowering my texture res to 2048x2048. Can't see a difference at all but it yields better performance in the Premier. The first few shots, over Colorado, is from my scenery which can be found here at Avsim. Don't be afraid to try it if you think your system can't handle it. My old system did well with it, which was way below today's common specs. Hope you enjoy
  13. My question is simple, it's a full install, will I have to reinstall my scenery and aircraft? I have quite a bit of add-ons between Carenado and MSE. John
  14. Is the TFDI 717 available in P3D v4 yet? The add on manger says "coming soon" but I've seen people on youtube running it in V4. Can someone point me in the right direction to get it in V4? Thanks
  15. Addons used ENVTEX FTX Norway (+ FTX Global) AS16 FS Labs A320 EZdok v2
  16. Does anyone know if there are any future plans for photoreal scenery in P3d that looks similar to the ortho stuff? I️ know mega scenery is out there but that doesn’t look good. Just wondering what the future holds. Thanks.
  17. Can someone walk me through how to remove old/outdated liveries in UTL? I am trying to figure it out in their application but can't find where. I see where you can remove airlines completely but nothing to specify an aircrafts paint. For example, I want all United to be the current paint and not have the gray paint and the tulip paint to show up at all. However, when I search in their app, I don't see anything other than United that specifies the paint. Thanks
  18. Here are my system specs: MSI Vortex, Intel 7700 3.6GHZ, Nvidia 1060 GTZ 3GB Ram, 8 Megs system Ram, Windows 10 If you have a comparable system or plan on buying one, P3dV4 will work great once you adjust it's settings. Max it out, then lower the AA, Autogen, AI and Texture sliders to adjust for your preferred performance. You will find a sweet spot without having to tweak a config or ini file, or your Nvidia settings. Check out my screenshots in the forums, with photoreal scenery installed, I get great performance even with some AI around. I've only tweaked autogen and texture size down one notch, I did not notice a difference. I don't want autogen covering my photoreal scenery, it's a matter of choice. My system was advertised as a gaming machine, and that's exactly what it has been for me. It cost about $1200 including tax and a VGA adapter cable. There were more expensive PC's out there, but I did not take the bait, just got what I felt would work. And I made the right decision, the MSI machine has been rock solid stable since I bought it a month ago, hasn't locked up once despite my opening and closing of the sims. The salesman listened to what I wanted before he brought me to this machine, and he cut the price when I purchased it. Gotta love Fry's if you have one in your city. They helped me at work when I needed to run some Cat-5 cabling for a client back in '99. I was able to get the cable, ends and crimper from them, saving my client hundreds of dollars to call in a network specialist. A Canadian French network specialist helped teach me the proper connection method, where a previous specialist did not know what to do. He did not charge me or my client for his service, he said he just wanted them to advertise his work. I told my client to use him for support, which they did. From one colleague to another, we did what we could to help the client, since they were short on cash. I subsequently published the correct cabling methods for the rest of my colleagues since none of us were trained to cable a client. Unions would butt in and say we shouldn't, but we helped, not wanting our clients to be held hostage by outrageous prices. I did not always run cable, if a client insisted I would not, per our contract with them. But if they were in need and needed helped and treated my team politely, I would do what it took to get the job done. John
