  1. Hey, everyone. I’ve been flying a lot with pmdg 737 and 777 and I liked these very much. But I was wondering if there are any other developers of high quality plane add-ons like pmdg. Do you know any?
  2. Today my steering tiller went to full left deflection after push back. Nothing I did solved it (use FSUIPC to assign/calibrate). Came back after 5 minutes all by itself. Continued flight (7 hrs 45mins). After landing it worked to exit runway but then locked out at full deflection again. Never happened before. All controls are disabled in default and I use FSUIPC to assign/calibrate as stated. Rebooted and reloaded a new flight - all seemed OK. Temporary glitch??? Any help appreciated.
  3. Saw that UPS added the EXPO 2020 logos to N574UP, so I decided to add them to my paint (had to re-reg her from 572 which was my original reg for this paint). 🙂 Taking her from KSDF up to PANC...then probably through Asia and then to Dubai.
  4. Hello, I have recently updated to P3D V5.1 and I have been having weird textures on the knobs and switches in the VC of the PMDG 737 NGXU. It has a sort of light blue reflection on the metal side of the switches (Fuel pump switch for example) Is there anyone else who has the same problems and please suggest a fix for it? Thank you.
  5. Hi guys, Looks like I have finally achieved on what I have been wanting to do for a while with my hardware. I figured out the trick for people with 8GB video cards and having at minimum 30fps with the following addons installed - including one of the most fps hit area that has plagued almost all of us for ages. Finally pulled off Slick FPS at 30fps with 30hz 4K monitor (TL/DR - see also pics) - My VRAM stayed around 5.2GB in SoCaL area with all that autogen and flying. AT KORD area it jumped to 6gb but still tons left. with Set the following in P3Dv5 and CPU - My tweaks are even less in the second round but the addons complexity increased insanely. 1) Disable HT and No Affinity Mask - I tried them all. Let P3Dv5 do its thing. 2) MAX_TEXTURE_REQUEST_DISTANCE=300000 (Default is 1000) 3) Enable HIGH_RESOLUTION_TERRAIN_TEXTURES=1 in Settings 3) TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=10 - this goes in [TERRAIN] 4) LOD_RADIUS=3.500000 (Yes, put LOD to 3.5 with Texture Size ExP to 10, and hi res textures - all 3 go hand in hand) - If these are not like this - 8GB Video Card will get vrOOM!!! 4.5 LOD will straight up OOM with that high texture exp) These settings Do the Magic with High Resolution Terrain enabled for 8GB Video Cards. I am on Windows 2004 Final Build for May 20H1 (19041.208) - this mandatory for VRAM management - See my other thread Enter The Addons 1) Orbx Socal (yes LA area) 2) FSDT KLAX 3) AIG planes 4) PMDG 747 5) FS Pilots 2020 NG Mesh 6) Chaseplane 7) AS P3D and TrueSky Enabled in P3Dv5 My hardware CPU is slightly older i7-5820K, 16GB DDR Quad Channel 2400, SSDs, Nvidia 2070 Super RTX, 3- 4k Monitors, Rift S I am flying at 2500 FT at 355 Knots (yes, b/c I can) with the PMDG 747 over Orbx SoCal and taking off from FSDT KLAX with few AIG birds. All shots are in 4K monitor with AS P3D Hotfix 2 Beta and TrueSky enabled. For some LA shots - Screen shots were taken in Time Preview Mode for dusk/dawn shots. Main flight is at late evening. This is way you all will see the graphics are super sharp - 30 fps outside and inside was ranging from 26-30fps at sometimes even more - though monitor is at 30hz 4K. Mission Accomplished - Kick A ** Graphics Finally - So slick, So smooth with Orbx Regions and PMDG Extra - Same Settings - Global+OpenLC NA+FSDT KORD+AIG+FS2020 NG Mesh Who Says the Sun doesn't move - It moves when I play in Time Preview mode Quick Recap of Settings Enjoy and be safe everyone.
  6. Hehe.....the paint is hard to look at in bright sunlight...but is somehow "appealing" to me. 🤣 (Full-on Banana pun) I'm actually enjoying painting this one 🙂

    Morning departure from Melbourne..
  8. Folks, I have Active Sky and REX SkyForce currently, and thinking about adding Environment Force as well. Is there currently a decent tutorial to make all these add-ons work well together? I'm concerned about getting the WX Radar to work on PMDG/FS-Labs and no clue how to set all that up, plus the visuals, shaders, etc... Do I need PTA as well? Grateful for any advice on how to config all this! -Bill
  9. Hey guys...I uploaded the Cargolux Joe Sutter....she's in the library now! Click the link in my sig to get her.
  10. First flight - P3D v4.3, ASP4, REX SF SP1, PMDG B748. No shaders or PTA mods. Sunset as we approach AA, SPECI on ATIS Rollout complete, getting off the active
  11. I have installed the ,,PMDG 737 6700 NGX Expansion FSX,, . After extracting the File on the Desktop I started the Instalation. https://www.dropbox.com/home?preview=Unbenannt.PNG After that their is comming an Error: https://www.dropbox.com/home?preview=PMDG+ERROR.PNG I dont know what to do! Who can Help?
  12. Hello guys, I guess this question has been asked many times before but I can't find it in the forums anymore. My question is whether there is an option to upgrade any PMDG product from FSX to P3D(v4) or is the only way to buy it full price? Thank you in advance :)
  13. 1. EPR+N1+EGT 2. ENG+AIR+FUEL Information I never see EPR+N1+EGT configuration on EICAS in PMDG 777. I can manage to configure like the second one, but only when EICAS presents in INBOARD display(MFD). Can either of this be forced to show on normal(default) state in EICAS display?
  14. Hey guys, I just downloaded the new installer for the 773 and when I install it I get : Installation cannot continue, your registry does not show a valid Prepar3d installation location. I had no issues with installing the 772. my p3d installation is on J: win 10 pro p3d v4 anyone have a solution for this ?
  15. Hello all, Basically I've been away from the simming scene for about 3 years. I just rejoined today and purchased the FSX Steam edition. Previously I had purchased the 737 and 777 sims from PMDG. I simply accessed my account there and tried to re-download them. My query is how do I get them to work for FSX Steam. They were purchased for FSX ... surely there's a method to get them to work on steam? I did find a forum on the steam gaming site about how to do it for the 777 but it presumed i had already made some changes to files in my pc which I hadn't, and i couldn't find out exactly what they required to be done. I searched the PMDG ops centre but couldn't find any downloads relating to updates for my purchases to work on steam. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it Thanks
  16. I have just bought the 777-200 base package and I'm very annoyed. Not having a regular income means that this is a big price to pay for me. I am not able to press or move anything in the cockpit. The aircraft is in a cold and dark state with the throttle levers at TOGA and the yokes fully back and fully left. The only thing I can control is the brakes on the aircraft either with my toe brakes or a button on the back of the yoke. The gear isn't showing outside (yet I am at the correct height as if the gear is extended). The mouse only changes to the PMDG one over the 2 inside nobs for the Baro/Radio altitude and the altimeter. I have reinstalled the 777 many times and have overwritten my FSUIPC install. (I can't figure out how to uninstall FSUIPC and the internet doesn't seem to help much). I have reinstalled the D irect X settings and Simconnect all to on avail. Please someone help me before I explode at PMDG.
  17. Hi. Has anyone seen a repaint for the PMDG 737 NGX 800-900 variants of a factory green primer, like when they come straight out of the factory at Renton? I see some, but they're for other addon 737s, and not the NGX.
  18. Good day Everyone, I seem to be encountering a rather strange issue. Upon loading into the default LIRF (Rome) with the DC6 Olympic Airways, the cockpit with all panels black is shown for a few seconds before the sim CTD. I currently only have ORBX Vector, Global and Europe_LC installed on a fresh P3D version When loading into the default scenario at Eglin AFB and only changing the aircraft to the DC6, everything seems to start fine. In addition, when I load into LIRF with any other default aircraft, everything loads fine as well. Thus it must be the combination of the location and aircraft causing the crash. Below is the last few lines from the DC6 log 2017/08/11 20:58:15 [PMDG 1] Loading general prefs from g:\games\prepar3d v4\PMDG\PMDG DC-6\DC-6_Options.ini[37m 2017/08/11 20:58:15 [PMDG 1] No ini file available for SX-DAD; falling back to default.[37m 2017/08/11 20:58:15 [PMDG 1] Loading plane prefs from g:\games\prepar3d v4\PMDG\PMDG DC-6\PlaneDefault.ini[37m 2017/08/11 20:58:15 [PMDG 1] Presetting items for AI[37m 2017/08/11 20:58:15 [PMDG 1] Un-muting new cockpit sounds[37m 2017/08/11 20:58:15 [PMDG 1] Flight loaded from C:\Users\Ashton\AppData\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Prepar3D_Default.fxml[37m 2017/08/11 20:58:15 [PMDG 2] Cannot load situation from file g:\games\prepar3d v4\PMDG\PMDG DC-6\PanelState\Prepar3D_Default.fxml.sav; doesn't exist / zero size?[37m 2017/08/11 20:58:15 [PMDG 1] Loading saved health-and-hours data from g:\games\prepar3d v4\PMDG\PMDG DC-6\Aircraft\SX-DAD.hours[37m 2017/08/11 20:59:03 [PMDG 1] Resuming all systems...[37m Any help would be much appreciated.
  19. My system's configurations are: PMDG 777 P3Dv4(1.10.8414, Newest) + Active Sky for P3Dv4(Newest) + P3Dv4 Professional Plus( / Client: Like I mentioned in the title, the weather radar reacts too slow! Is there any option to handle this or idea? Is it due to my low frame rates(20~50 frame)?
  20. Just a minor suggestion that I believe would make using the PMDG Previous Orders page more efficient. It would be nice to add a column containing the title of the product associated with each order number. As it is now, one must click on each of the order numbers to see what that specific purchase was for. My memory just isn't that good. Again, not a huge thing, not even a priority... just a "nice to have" to improved the customer experience on that specific page. Thanks again for all the superb simulation products!

    I did the reinstall. Then the updates for the 737 model first. It loads fine fly's fine, as long as I don't touch the key board. If I hit any key it throws out the whole flight program. This has never happen before and I've had your software a long time. I've been tiring for the last week to work through this problem, no resolve.

  23. Hello everyone: I'm glad to figure out the solution with everyone. Recnetly I met this problem and have a little bit anxious to solve, because I'm a video maker in a China's online video site (just like YouTube), I do not want to drag too long time to next 777 video. Maybe my English is not good so please forgive my grammar... First here's something I want to declare: 1. My PMDG777 isn't a pirate copy, if PMDG's stuff want my order number I can give that use PM or ticket; 2. This problem didn't happened in P3Dv3, even FSX long time ago... Just in P3Dv4. Okay, now please let me tell this about it: I'm using ILS27 circle-to-land RWY24 at EHAM, and everything goes fine before touch-down, my AUTOBRAKE set to 1, of couse no PARKING BRAKE. At the moment touched down, PARKING BRAKE ON red box showed at the lower left corner of the screen, flashing. EICAS showed warning TIRE PRESS (abnormal) and BRAKE TEMP (too high). MFD's GEAR page now showed my brake's temperature is too high and main landing gear‘s tire press is ZERO! I'm sure there is no heavy landing, it was a very smooth landing. TAT is 21C and RWY surface's temp is pretty normal, can NOT be puncture. Then I checked my Parking Brake is released, because no tire pressure plane can't be moving. I also checked chorks is removed. Addtional, FMC's FAILURE page showed I have a lot wheel's failures. BUT when I clear all the failures, it's NOT WORK at all! Pressure goes down soonly. Luckily, When I reset brakes and tires in FMC's GROUND MAINTANCE page, everything goes normal. I’m wordering if it was an incident, BUT then I did a traffic partten at EHAM using ILS18C (I EVEN RESTART MY PC) , same BUG occured! When this BUG occured, although parking brake is released, plane can't move, P3D tells my parking brake still on... In my opinion it was totally a BUG and this makes normal landing impossible (OMG Parking Brake apply and can't release). So anyone knows how to solve this problem? It's better that PMDG's stuff give out a solution~ I'm pretty appreciate if there's somebody help me. Let me express my thanks first! :) Eric
  24. With the recent release of the FSLabs A320 for P3D V4, FSLabs are now setting the standard for realism within the flight simulation platform. From using more realistic flight dynamics and flight model to using custom sounds that change depending on the area of the aircraft you are in. Will PMDG be implementing any of these features and attempt to reset the standard, atleast for Boeing/non Airbus aircraft?
  25. One weird error i have came across a few days ago. I took a break from P3Dv3.4 for 1 month it was working perfectly, expect i could not start in the UK. I come back after a month and then i cant start at Elgin AFB the default airport even with the default aircraft, it crashes when it reaches 100% on "Loading Air Traffic Control" i've done nothing to the simulator at all this just happened it self. I've tried other airports that don't seem to contain much scenery, still i get the same error. So far i haven't found a solution to it. Not only that but i can't even change aircraft (PMDG aircraft 777 and 747), i press select then the screen goes black then i comes up with a error message. I have tried uninstalling p3dv3 and trying again but still no hope, there are no errors on my P3DV4. But i prefer V3 as i have many addons rather then V4. Here is my error report. Faulting application name: Prepar3D.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x588f7cbf Faulting module name: unknown, version:, time stamp: 0x00000000 Exception code: 0xc000041d Fault offset: 0x2290eef0 Faulting process ID: 0x1b64 Faulting application start time: 0x01d33ed688c71208 Faulting application path: D:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\Prepar3D.exe Faulting module path: unknown Report ID: 891dd634-7b00-41f9-818b-965bdc6749d6 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: i have had this error message alot. People have said its the Windows kb4038788 update but i dont have that installed. I have also found people getting the g2d.dll but i don't Any help will be appreciated.
