  1. It's not all flat! :D Winter over Southeast Minnesota by Buffy Foster, on Flickr Frozen Lake by Buffy Foster, on Flickr Just mostly... :P Windmills :) by Buffy Foster, on Flickr
  2. I need help with several things. I'm working to optimize a dedicated Flight Training simulator PC. The flight sim is running very well in general. Im running Prepar3D v4, bare bones with native aircraft and scenery files etc.... maximum graphics settings except autopen draw distance, water detail, special effects at medium. As of yet I have not purchased ad-on scenery, weather or non native aircraft. I'd like to get the system properly set up and configured so I can begin to integrate some of these ad-ons. I would like to integrate a M.2 NVME 250 gb drive into my current system. I'm hoping to create faster boot times and prevent an occasional freezing of Prepard3d v4 64 bit Flight Simulator program. I need guidance determining how to best utilize the 250 GB M.2 drive........ should I use it for the OS and Flight sim software, then use the Intel 750 series PCIe SSD for scenery and ad ons......... or would it be better to have separate M.2 drives, one for the OS and the other for the flight simulator programs, leaving the PCIe SSD for ad-ons. I need guidance setting up simple file hierarchy between drives. Also, I'd like to consider setting Ultra fast boot in Bios. Is this recommend? Prepar3d v4 takes over 40 seconds to boot to the flight set up screen. Then it takes another 50 seconds to select and load aircraft type, scenery, terrain etc..., To change aircraft type takes at least 30 seconds. To change geographical location take at least 30 seconds. I'd like to speed it up as much as possible. My goal is to configure the PC to most affectively use an M.2 NVME drives and the PCIe SSD currently installed. Up to this point I have done everything myself. The build, OS installations, software installations, USB flight controls mapping, installation of secondary flight sim support software etc..... But at this point I'm not sure what I'm getting myself into trying to integrate the M.2 SSD. Will I need to uninstall everything and start from scratch? Or, is it possible to install the M.2, migrate the OS and flight sim programs with out starting from scratch. I've spent dozens and dozens of hours on the sim. It has been fun, rewarding and also downright frustrating I've scratched my head, done things three or more times, read forum after forum getting rid bits of helpful information. But the truth is, I will never be a qualified gaming PC tech, and I don't really want to be. I'd prefer to pay someone who is qualified to tweak the machine. I live in Mid-City LA. 90036. If anyone knows a good tech please forward contact info. Current set up: Asrock Z170 OC Formula MB 16GB Ram Intel 6700 processor water cooled EVGA 1080ti water cooled Inel 750 series 500gb SSD Windows 10 Sim support software and hardware: SPAD.next, Pilot Edge, FSXFlight, Warthog yoke, Saitek panels, Siatek throttle, iPad Foreflight, track IR on occasion. Software: Primarily Prepar3D v4, secondarily Condor Soaring simulator. I've tried Xplane 11 with poor results. My single machine could not handle three 4k TV's. Thanks for the support ahead of time!
  3. Hello together, I bought Chaseplane yesterday and after installing P3D V4.1 I installed chaseplane too. I have the newest version of FSUIPC installed (5.122). I set up chaseplane yesterday (doing the tutorial...) and then started the Sim. Normally chaseplane should start with the start of P3D but it didn't work like that. I had to start it manaully. And now when I start it manually it seems like it can't connect to P3D V4.1. The box in the upper left corner is red and not green. What can I do to fix it ? Greetings, Lennart
  4. I want to buy a camera for P3D v4 Right know I know the Ezdok v2 and ChasePlane Who between them is better ?

    Prepar3D v4

    Hello, As all addon's developer I'm working to upgrade FSLaunchPad for the very good last release of Prepar3D v4. I hadn't test the v4 with a lot of sceneries to see if like the other versions of P3D and FSX becomes slow to load them. Also, Lockheed Martin added special characters into scenery.cfg file and I must check the impact about this. In two cases with or without these characters P3D v4 loads the scenery.cfg correctly but I need to check more deeply. if somebody have more information about this topic thanks in advance to share it. Good Launch ! Pierre
  6. Little Navmap update and bugfix Release Most important change are bugfixes regarding crashes with P3D v4 scenery data. Announcement on my page with all links. Direct download link Windows Direct download link macOS Direct download link Linux Notes The littlenavmap-nosimconnect.exe was dropped in Little Navmap version 1.4.4. You can use littlenavmap.exe on all computers now, no matter if SimConnect is installed or not. The map theme can change after the update in some cases. Simply change it back to your previous theme. The GUI style can change after the update in some cases. Go to the options dialog to revert back to the style you used before. Changelog from 1.4.3 to 1.4.4 Added light (Positron) and dark (Dark Matter) maps from CARTO. SimConnect is now detected and loaded dynamically. The file littlenavmap-nosimconnect.exe was removed since it is not needed anymore. littlenavmap.exe can now also be used on bare computers without SimConnect or flight simulator installation. Added notification message if SimConnect was not found in connect dialog. The file link in the information window is now removed if the file cannot be found. This happens on remote computers with copied databases. Added start positions to runway information. These are also available if the airport has no runways. Improved aircraft progress display and fixed multiple omissions. Fixed potential crashes when a style is unavailable. Half transparent aircraft icon fixed. Fixed problem with links in scenery database error dialog opening inline. Changed to Qt library 5.9. Note that the GTK style is not available anymore in Linux. P3D v4 runways, aprons and taxiways are now read correctly. This affects all BGL files that are created using the v4 SDK compiler. Fixed crash with P3D v4 BGL files and other crashes that appear after applying the P3D v4 hotfix 1 and loading the scenery library. Added support for P3D v4 add-on.xml packages. These are now read from subdirectories of C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Files\add-ons and C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons. Full changelog.
  7. Hello, I own the Prepar3D version V3 and V4. Is it possible to operate the products of the Pmdg 737/777 simultaneously in both versions V3 and V4? Best regards Hans -Jürgen Lampe

  9. Hello, I moved this topic from P3D General Area as it appears that PMDG should be noticed as well...I also filing the support ticket. I have recently purchased Aerosoft Balearic Islands pack - BIP (LEPA/LIBH/LMH) from Aerosoft that was adopted as a straight port for P3Dv4.0. The installers put sceneries' entries into scenery.cfg file correctly, then I ran FTX Vector to check an elevation for each airport. Apparently, every time I load P3D with either PMDG plane in any location with Balearic airports active I have IMMEDIATE ntdll.crash and then I received a message that your video driver has been successfully recovered. However, when I try the same scenario with F22 plane, I have no this problem at all. When I de-activate BIP from scenery.cfg I'm able to fly PMDG birds again. I did several other tests and found out that Terrain folder for ANY of three airports is a culprit of ntdll. crash, but without the terrain's slices, all the sceneries look quite naked and ugly, I reported this problem to Aerosoft and Mathis said that he has never heard about this. Please see the topic.http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/125200-ngx-and-ibiza-ctd-p3d-v4/ Need your help with trouble-shooting as we clearly see cause-and-effect relationship here: PMDG + Aerosoft BIP = ntdll CTD, but ANY default plane + Aerosoft BIP = ok. Also, I have made several flights in P3Dv4 with NGX with FTX full sandwich, custom-made AI, FT/T2G/FSDT airports and literally had ZERO issues until the day I bought BIP, I have i7-6700k, 980Ti, 16GB RAM, W7-64, 2TB Samsung SSD. I also run Error-Content twice and it found nothing. Your help would be much appreciated. DmitriyToropov
