  1. Hello people. After long time of "flying" on MS FS, recently I got b-day gift - flying experience in real cockpit simulator of big commercial airliner. You know, those semi-professional full scale realistic imitation of cockpit used for public and also training pilots... I was so excited from this experience, that I could not sleep for few days and more and more realized, that I want something like that in my home. Now my "flying room" with ordinary joystick and monitor looks suddenly so dull... So... Is there anybody who already have that, build it or purchase some parts of such thing? Any suggestion what I should do, what should not, what I need to be aware of and so on...? I can honestly say that I am skilled with tools like screwdriver, soldering iron and such DIY things... I understand electric scheme and signature of components well enough that I can build or complete electronics components or wiring by myself, so I do not need to purchase expensive already-made panels or hardware parts. If I get proper detailed guide of building this or that, I can do it. Oh, maybe I should mention I have 3D printer, so there is another advantage to build many parts cheaply. I also still not decided, whether to build Boeing or Airbus cockpit. Personally I don't mind, I am happy with both, but I have no idea of advantages and disadvantages of each that aircraft cockpits. Well, price is not everything, but I am not millionaire, so cut expenses as low as possible is important part of what and how I will build. I would go as close as possible to imitating real cockpit layout, but it don't need to be perfect. Another question - possible to use laptops for avionics? I have two spare Dell Latitude E6400 laptops, so I hope I can use them for avionics. Both have VGA and Display port. How many computers I need? And how many displays for projecting scenery I can/need/should connect? Thank you very much for any advice and direction. Jan H.
  2. i'm a casual player of FSX currently training and enjoying the game I don't know if this question has been asked here already but, I want to know if it is possible to have a local co-pilot. By local co-pilot I mean a friend that sits besides me, in real life, and also control the planes functions (maybe even by using his own HOTAS system). I've been messing around with woodworking recently and I thought that build a cockpit for a plane, like so many people have, would be a good challenge. All i want to know is if I can have a friend beside me so I can make a cockpit for two people or if I should make a cockpit just for myself. thanks in advance!
  3. Hi, I've got a question regarding using the transponder on the ground. So, I am aware that in real life pilots usually tend to set their transponder to ALT RPTG OFF during taxi/pushback, and when they get onto the runway they set it to TA/RA. Now, my question is; when I flew to CPH, the ATIS said "squawk Charlie on push" which I assume means that you should set your transponder to "on" aka TA/RA or XPNDR. But if that is the case, why does just CPH (and maybe some other airports) have it differently than other airports, and if I would still set it to ALT RPTG OFF, would ATC ask me to go to squawk mode Charlie since that what it said in the ATIS? Also, I am wondering if you should set you're transponder to TA/RA while corssing an active runway, and after you've crossed it, if you should turn it back to ALT RPTG OFF? Thanks in advance!
  4. I hav a simple query which 777 is more simple to operate Captain sim 777 or PMDG 777 , Bcuz i'm just a guy who likes to simply rather than do hours of programming on d FMC
  5. Hello Limbatus here from California. I am interested in learning how to fly. I would like to use computer simulators to train. How do you recommend I start? Thanks!
  6. Hello all, My name is Kim. I am training soon at a major US airline for 737-800 captain. The fidelity of the sims here is amazing. I'm wondering if flying the PMDG 737-800 sim would help my training. I would like to message with someone here who lives on the US East coast. My thought is possibly arranging for some sim time. Thanks
  7. Hi everybody, I'm trying to assign the VRinsight MS panel axies functions to, for instance, continous rotary knobs in PMDG 737NGX such as overhead panel light or pedestal panel light. Is there anyone who can suggest me something?. I have LINDA and register FSUIPC but I did not found any help online concerning my question. Thanking in advance who will replay, all the best Porfirinio
  8. Hi there all, AVSIM seems to of changed since i last made a post and added an image. For some reason i'm having trouble this time. When i click the add image button on the forum post i enter the URL of the image which i have got from uploading the image to dropbox, I then get an error from AVSIM telling me i cannot use this file extension on this community? I have edited the image and re-saved it as a different file type and then repeated the above process but i'm still getting the same message. Does anyone have any idea what i am doing wrong? It would be a great help as i can't really post my topic without adding the picture. Thank you, Michael.
  9. Hi all, I want to mount my ipad on my desk so as to use it to read approach plates etc. What app do you recommend? Thanks Wild_South

  11. Hi there Is there a possible way to downgrade my PMDG 777? It sounds stupid, but I have a specific reason. The aux. fuel tanks on the 777 300er are unavailable (just like in real life) after the upgrade. But I need just a few more NM for my flight to Australia. Thanks! P.S. Is there a possible "cheat" to unlock these?

    Download link

    Hello I purchased the 737 800 pack, but when I click on the download link, the browser says "too many reroutes" (loosly translated). I tried to copy and paste the link into the adress window, with no luck. Any tips on what to do with this? I have emailed PMDG without response so far.. Thanks! -K111
  13. Anyone knows where I could get plan to build my own 737 cockpit seats. Also does anyone have info about Fabio Ippoliti ( WWW.737HOMECOCKPIT.COM) 737 cockpit seats kit. Quality wise.

    Dirtier Wings as You Fly

    Has anyone every thought of creating some sort of addon/plugin for the NGX in which the longer you fly the specific plane, the wings get dirtier? It could read the .hours file for the specific reg and if somehow it could read any kind of Active Sky file like other addons do to detect the type of weather you were flying in. I'm not sure how complex this would be, specifically the weather part, but I feel it would add an extra point of realism to the aircraft. Just a thought I had tonight.
  15. Hello there. I literally just signed up, and I can't seem to post in any other section except the "New Member Forums". Is this to prevent spamming or something? I have not encountered any other kinds of forums that have this system...
  16. Hi there people it has been at least a year since I've visited avsim and it's good to be back. Been steadily/fairly consistently getting some flights in.......mostly short hops in the CRJ using FSX and it's going well so now I would like to branch out and connect with other fs pilots and groups to fly with. Here's the thing....since I've been away I got a new computer but it came with no dvd player to load my old FSX Gold discs so I opted to jump onto Steam which wasn't around the last time I came on. Trouble is...in Steam the multiplayer option seems VERY limited as far as participation/interaction etc....like for example it doesn't allow me to join ANY group via "connect directly" using their number sequence address that they give out on the websites. I seem to recall back when I was using Gold that there were MANY more sessions I could join and the people were FAR more professional and interactive (the Steam groups seem to be mostly kids horsing around and talking junk) so that said can anybody direct me what steps I need to take in order to join up with some groups to fly with....like some really good ones that also host ATC?? Btw just in case......I took to transferring all of the files on the 3 discs of Gold to a USB thumb drive that I now have at the ready if it turns out that your responses indicate that this is indeed preferable to Steam. I can see all the files listed when I open up the thumb but have no clue how to add it all into the new computer although from everything I've read it looks like the "setup.exe" file on disc one is the place to begin? Also can anybody comment on what would be....at least minimally/at the very least.......the best add ons I should bring in now in order to enhance the experience? I live in South Florida and my home airport is KPBI (Palm Beach International) so it would be cool to get a local scenery package. Also any good ideas out there as far as freebies and freeware? As I recall I think I can add a lot of planes here in avsim correct? This isn't necessarily a huge deal for me right now as I want to continue to master the RJ. I know this seems like a lot of questions but thank you people and ANY insights/assistance will be GREATLY appreciated!! All the best, Mitch
  17. Hello everyone, I just got an my i7 4790K and I am pretty much not satisfied with the FPS I am getting. 20 - 25 with airbus aerosoft 15 - 22 with pmdg NGX I tried to to tweak my CFG but it looks like nothing is really improving. I added HIGHMEMFIX=1 Affinity mask set to 84 Bufferpool I am using also steve dx10 fixer. Help guys I think i can get more than this FPS with 4ghz I7 processor. Thank you,
  18. 4 yrs ago i was going to jump into flight sim world but racing cars consumed up a lot of my time. Im throttling back on racing and looking to get into flying and eventually my real pilots license. First a little about what i have, i have an obutto ozone cockpit and i was going to see if i could use this setup https://www.mainperformancepc.com/pr...unt-accessory/ while keeping my racing wheel attached so i do not have to keep swapping back and fourth between sims. My pc: triple monitors,INTEL BOX INTEL CORE I5-6600K, GIGABYTE Z170XGAMING5 LGA1151 ATX, liquid cooled, SAMSUNG E 250GB 850 EVO SSD, NVIDIA GTX 980 video cars, sound blaster audio card with surround sound speakers. Running Windows 7 Professional My Questions: 1. i would like controls for flying to fit the above obutto link, i have a great set off racingpedals with gas, brake, and clutch, can i use the gas and clutch in a sym for my rudder pedals? they are screwed down and would be easier to have one set for both. So i am open for options on controls, i would like something good may be not the best unless the difference in price is minimal. 2. what program? i use iracing for racing because its easy web based, adding mods is easy and plenty of people who use it to help with any issues. So any recommendations on programs. Any threads that shows the differences between the offerings? Again a main concern of mine is learning and using what i learn in the real world but thats not to say id love to get in the cockpit of some planes i would never fly. 3.anything else i need to know, any books to read ( i have read stick and rudder) or other forums to look at for experience? Im open for advice, no ego here, just wanna learn and try to do this correct from the beginning. Thanks Anthony
  19. just installed UTX USA . the files show up in the settings\scenery library\addon scenery drop down memory 1 to 11. But there is no change in the ground appearance any place in the USA. FSX STEAM, from discs, Win10. * have a high end video card , processor and tons of memory. My son who runs SYSTRONIX built it for me to run FSX. frame rates are mostly 40 to 50+/sec. I think the card is MSI GEFORCE GTX 950 DirectX 12GTX 950 GAMING 2G 2GB 128 Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 X 16 HDCP etc. any ideas about what is wrong ?
  20. Hi all. First, I'll admit that I committed the cardinal sin of not simming for a few years. Things/life/head trauma got in the way and I'm just now returning. When I last flew, it was with FSX/Acceleration (boxed, patched and tweaked). I had a then-capable pc and had a fair bit of experience installing freeware - AI aircraft, ai flightplans, afcads and scenery. I even created a number of FSX afcads on my own and a couple small scenery sets (including stock library objects, some photo-realistic ground textures, land classing and flattens/exclusions) that I was testing for release before I left flight-simming. That computer, its FSX installation and most of my add-on files are now in a dump somewhere after a house fire. In just this last week, I've "returned" and realized that my memory, knowledge and skills aren't "what they used to be". I do not even have FSX installed yet. In quickly browsing the forums over the last week, I am amazed at how the FSX development environment has changed and evolved. For instance, I had never heard of P3D until I started reading the forums again last week. My situation and "near-term goal" in simming is limited to offline/non-multiplayer flight in small, single engine prop aircraft and helos with "as real as you can get via freeware" flight environment (weather, visuals [ground and air-clouds]). I have somehow managed to retain/find my old FS Genesis FSXmesh files that cover the entire globe (I just found out that FS Genesis no longer honors my old Galaxy membership, so finding those files again was financially lucky)and UTX terrain textures. Okay, so here are the questions. (I'm sure I'll have more quickly, but these are the ones currently burning holes in my brainpan.) 1. I lost the boxed discs for FSX but can get them off eBay if necessary. Or should I go with FSX:SE? 2. Aside -what's the deal with P3D? (short quick answer preferred... The real question seems to be whether I should focus on FSX or P3D. Are they mutually compatible, duplicative, what?) 3. Any suggestions on Tutorials/guides I should review - files/threads/posts here or on youtube? As I said or implied, what I don't remember fills thousands of threads here and where to start again is a bit overwhelming. 4. What are the "must have" freeware environment packages now? (I don't even remember what I used to have - and most of the ones I had back in the day were payware.) Thanks for your time and any replies. John Martin

  23. Hi everyone, I'm a new member from Michigan, USA looking to get back into flight sims. I still have an old saitek joystick and throttle I used several years ago for flight simulator x. For the past 5/6 years, I've only being doing racing simulation (mostly iracing). I had water in my basement requiring that I dismantle my racing setup. I'm getting ready to rebuild a simulation rig using 8020 aluminium profile. I figure while doing this build, I should make it dual purpose for racing sim and flight sim. I currently use a triple monitor setup for racing plus 2 more monitors (one for telemetry and the other for streaming) and a usb monitor for the dashboard. My plan is to have a quick change system (might not be very quick) to change steering wheel to yoke and other needed accesories. One question I have everyone is, about the computer to run the sim. My current PC has an i7 4790K and a gtx 980ti hybrid. I have another system with a xeon e5-2670. Would the flight sims (an all the apps that need to run in the background) benefit from the extra cores (8 cores, 16 threads) or the xeon, albeit at a significantly lower clock speed? Also, what would be good yoke/rudder that won't break the bank? I hope to eventually add all the instrument panels and an overhead panel too. Thanks for the replies.
  24. Hi avsim community I have a question about the PMDG 737NGX fmc. On the departures and Arrivals page for the arrivals how do you choose an ILS or a visual stars and transitions to line up with the runway for the nav performance scale. Also I would like to know how to do an ILS and how do I not get the LNAV and the VNAV to disengage while decent. Thanks :smile:

    Hello I am Dan from Alaska, and I thought I would briefly introduce myself. I am 34 yo and former diesel mechanic now medium duty mechanic with Uhaul Alaska. I grew up around bush planes and fascinated myself reading the tales of the likes of Don Sheldon and Bob Gillam, Wiley Post and others. Pioneer aviation has fascinated me and I always felt I have been a bit of a purist-favoring propeller-driven aircraft. Bush piloting would have been my career but for a few cruel twists of fate and fortune. I will never forget the first time I saw a Rust's Flying Service DHC Beaver landing at Lake Hood when my father came back from a moose trip; I was 3 years old and aviation has deeply enamoured me ever since. I absorbed all information I could and to this day civil aviation holds a deeply seated special place in my heart. (I have no interest in military aviation whatsoever, but have read up here and there) I first got FS 3.0 back in 1988 and quickly upgraded to 4.0 the next year at the tender age of 7 and 8, respectively, and have been flying in every version ever since except 2004 and Acceleration. Most of my flying has been the prop stuff, with my favorites through the years being at around age 12 or so, flying VOR-to-VOR radial intercepts to make it through the Caribbean in the Skylane. Since I have found love in the Beaver, the Twin Otter, the DO-27 and most recently have, in the wake of a surgery and recovery, (pardon me if I get tangential at points-right now I am fighting back painkillers) invested in a yoke/rudder after years of budget joysticks, and am finally going all out with my first, and intimidating airliner, the PMDG 737 NGX. Also, I finally have the hardware to run what I deem acceptable performance margins. I look forward to learning from you all, making some friends along the way, and seeing where this particular run takes me. Nice to make your acquaintance people. -Dan Hirschberg
