  1. Hi all, We've just released TerraFlora 1.2! As always, thanks very much for all of your support. It's because of your feedback that we've been able to create this update! You'll be happy to know that a documentation PDF has now been added, but you can see all changes and added features here: New Features: – Added multiple variants for Fall colouring. – Most broadleaf species now have at least two colour variants to reduce the ‘solid carpet’ effect. This means that were a single species is annotated, you will now see colour variants of that species. This is only apparent in Fall and is quite subtle. – Added Red Maples – We had several requests to add missing Red Maples. We’ve added these as a Fall variant (see above) but their placement is quite sparse reflecting the real world as near as we can. – Acacias reworked: The acacia texture has been completely replaced with a new version and the original canopy plane reinstated. – Documentation PDF added (by popular demand) Here are some shots for you:
  2. Hi all, We've just released updates for the Turbulent Terminal and all of our airport sceneries. These updates address issues on documentation, blending and the installation process. You'll no longer be asked to install SODE when installing the Turbulent Terminal. As SODE is an airport feature, it will be included in the airport installers only. Good news for TerraFlora Customers. :) All the details of the update can be found here, along with some screenshots of RealFlora blending in to TerraFlora: We're currently finishing testing a new TerraFlora update, which will be released soon. As always, thanks everyone for your feedback and suggestions! Thanks, Russ
  3. I got this fantastic aircraft in August downloaded direct from Flysimware. I started a thread over at Sim Outhouse with my Flower Power texture which prompted a couple of guys to pick it up. I just downloaded the latest update from FSW; uninstalled my old install and installed the complete new install as suggested. First when I tweaked my aircraft.cfg with my own textures and eliminated those I don't want to fly I saved it and opened up FSX. Ooops NO FSW Cessna 402C. What happened? I went back into FSX in Windows Explorer to discover that model MAIN does not exist anymore. The model now if you do not have F1 Radar is RDR_GNS. Ok. I corrected the cfg and the panel is now RDR_GNS. OK no problem. Fire up FSX...go to the airport parking...start the engines...what is that beeping? Can't shut it off! I don't remember that before. Tried every switch on the panel and can't shut it off. Exit FSX. I saved all my textures, panel folder (since I added a WX radar of mine) and the aircraft.cfg just in case I had a problem. Learned THIS the hard way in my years of flight simming. Opened up the aircraft.cfg and changed the panel to "panel=". Since I have my old panel folder in the FSX folder, I fired up FSX again...find Cessna 402C Flower Power texture (my own creation) and park at Nantucket. NO BEEPING!!! I didn't think there was any before. Anybody any clues? I will wait to hear and hope this is still read by one of the designers.
  4. Sorry Guys Im must be having a blonde moment but nearly every few days I get a notice of a update across the boards to uninstall reload then re install the 3 products for v4 however the latest one for the 737 says does this mean the 600 and 700 is now v4 ready? and please can we revert back to the smaller updates rather than re downloading the whole things again, its a small gripe as just as I reinstall everything and re do all the schemes i have to uninstall and repeat the process all over again 1st world problems I know but im seem to be doing more maintenance than flying
  5. Using the PMDG Operations Centre users are presented with notifications of updates being available. If you select 'Install Update', the black banner 'Download Complete' appears within a few seconds with the message that the "Product is being updated - This message with clear when the update is completed". Then it just sits there seemingly doing nothing for hours. There is no progress bar or estimate of how long the update should (normal practice). What should the user do? Surely the Download is not complete despite the banner saying no. What is the Operations Centre actually doing? Is it continuing to download the update or is it stalled 'installing' the update. How big is the update? Remember no everyone is blessed with superfast internet speeds. Can PMDG not do something to improve the progress information?
  6. Question?

    Hello all, I´am playing FSX a long time and now I want to buy the mod "ChasePlane". I have a question about the product: When I buy now the Beta Version for $39, am I allowed to download the final Version 1 or need I to pay again $39 for the final Version 1? I hope someone can help me...
  7. How do you download the updates and how can you tell which update you are currently using? Thanks, Howard
  8. Hi! I bought and installed your GTN 750 today. Before doing so I also noted that the included GPS data was from July 2016. Recent enough. But I also use Navigraph and I noticed there is a difference between the Garmin, showing me old and faulty frequencies for airport services, and Navigraph giving me the correct ones. If I understand it correctly it is possible to update the Garmin software for a small fortune, whereas services like Navigraph and Aerosofts Navdatapro are quite affordable. Is there a cheaper way to have the Garmin and Navigraph information synced without taking out a mortgage on my house or starting a new career as a drug kingpin? Or do I have to resort to using an old Navigraph cycle? And just to be clear, I am just a newbie flightsim enthusiast and not a PPL holder so even though I may think thousands of dollars a year for map updates are fine, my wife most certainly do not agree.
  9. How long time is "very soon?". It's been what.. 9 months now and no actual "lids" are opened to me atleast, only official threads, but you won't answer any real questions because the "lid" ain't open yet. Not moaning, i'm patient and i rather want to wait, then get the real deal flight simulator instead of hasting it, but just asking, i'm curious what you Dovetail guys think of "very soon", years? months? Maybe even weeks from now? Have a nice day :wink: Best regards: Tor Jakobsen Ps: I bet i get the answer "very very soon".. haha.
  10. I purchased the boxed version sold by Aerosoft of the PMDG 777 -200LR/F. How do I go about getting/ applying updates for this add-on. The PMDG website is not very informative. Thanks. Noel Anderson Sheffield, MA
  11. Hello, I'm a new to PMDG so please forgive me if I ask something silly but when new updates come out will there be some notification please ? A pop up when the aircraft is loaded or e-mail perhaps ? Or should I check these forums once in a while ? Will update notifications be posted here ? I understand there already was one hotfix released but I don't see any notification thread here.
  12. C*U

    Hello all, I have seen a lot of information regarding the service pack updates and the massive changes that the 300 and SP1d bring in terms of flight controls model and autopilot logic. Q1: How come that such a radical difference had to be implemented after the initial design? Was it due to latter discoveries about the real design/behavior of the aircraft? Was it to make it more user friendly? Was it to make it more realistic? Was it to reduce complexity as compared to the real airplane and therefor easier to run on a limited environment (FSX) and hardware resourced at a minimal cost to realism? I am assuming that given your (PMDG) expertise you know from the start what it is that you want implemented and then just corrections follow as it is a massively complex undertaking. Q2: As they stand now, with all latest patches on 200 and 300, are there differences in the FBW and AP implementations of the two models? What are these differences and why? I know the two airplanes have a real massive difference in terms of size and performance but the FBW and AP basic logic should still be the same is it not? Which of the two stands closer to the real thing? My main interest is in how close to the real C*U behavior are these birds when hand flying them. I know that this is a very hard intellectual property of Boeing and this is what really makes this awesome aircraft what it is; as such, aside from a few publications that I read on the subject, it is after all a real industrial secret and real equations are not given away. I apologize in advance if this topic has been addressed before and there are other threads close to this topic. Sincerely, Ionut (John) G. Micu
  13. Hi, I am wondering how you guys keep track of software updates. I have missed many important updates for the Lionheart Quest Kodiak, REX Overdrive & Essentials, Aerosoft A320/A321, Ezdok and much more. Most of the time I don't even know that there is an update. I keep a list of addons and would frequently google ______ update from the time I realised that there was an update for REX that came out 6 months ago. Most of the time I would google the updates but most of them just don't show up such as the Lionheart Quest Kodiak and the Aerosoft A320/A321. The only way I found out about was when I changed computer and when I saw a FroogleSIm video about the new Aerosoft update. I was lucky enough to get emailed about updates such as the new FSPassengerX 2015. I do source around in forums but most of them have many sub forums that are tricky to navigate and I don't want to post a new topic every now and then asking whether there is an update So my question is how do you guys keep track of your updates? It would be a waste of money if I don't know about new updates (such as the Ezdok 1.17 and 1.18.5 update, which I had no idea abut until I watched a video by Matt Davies) Thanks, Aaron.
  14. Hi Hi, I fly FSX and to give me work and enhance the whole experience of flying I use FsCaptain. A lot of the time the FsCaptain program can't give me the latest weather from some 'Weather Stations' as they are 'Not Set in FS). I read somewhere that Microsoft no longer deals with Jeppen and maybe this is why. So, as the title suggests - If I purchase and install Active Sky Next, will all the weather stations in FSX get updated and become active again ? I do fly 'Bush' quite a lot. So I am flying near to the smaller weather reporting stations. Thanks in advance for any information on this. I have tried to search for an answer with no luck. Cheers Terry
  15. Hi Bryan, many thanks for v1.2 (and 1.3 that's in the works). My question is, has the latest manual V1.2 included all the additional voice commands for 1.1 & 1.2?
  16. Laminar has released the V.30 BETA update to X-Plane 10. Some categories of changes incorporated in V10.30 are: New GPS navigators X-430 and X-530 Playback and analyze your REAL flights in X-Plane! Cloud and Atmosphere Changes Controls for Networked External Visuals New Art Assets Aircraft Conversion from V9 Fuselage Mounted Speedbrakes – Change in Flight Model New parameters for steered and castoring gears You can view a comprehensive list of changes, bug fixes and updates here. If you have set your X-Plane 10 to NOT download BETA's, you will not see this update. The latest fully released version is 10.25. You can join in our forum discussions about this release in our X-Plane General Forum here.
  17. There has been a lot of discussion lately about DX-10 and fixes, tweaks and hints and as a result, we thought we would open a forum to cover this area of FSX specifically. Welcome! We will start moving existing DX-10 messages over to this forum shortly.
  18. Jennifer Paige, Community Manager for Microsoft Studios today provided us an announcement regarding MS FLIGHT. Here's what Jennifer provided us: "New Microsoft Flight Update Now Available. Here are the changes included in this latest update: We made a few changes to help address an issue that was causing some players to crash when starting the game. We addressed an issue that was causing a CRC validation error for some players. We also made some adjustments to help improve Windows 8 compatibility. A special thank you to all the players who participated in the beta test of this build! Your efforts are appreciated."
  19. please read

    We have made a lot of changes in the last four months or so, executing things that we have been working on for some time. There are more to come, including the new File Library. In the meantime however, I would like to do kind of a tempreture check with you, our members. How are we doing with the new site? Any suggestions? We like to hear your input.
  20. Over the last 24 hours we have done some system work and added a few functions. First, the system; The pagination issue on the news front page and with the comments is still not fixed, although we though we had one. We are getting some assistance in getting this taken care of. At this point, that is all I dare say about it, because every time we think we have our solution, it disappears on us. You may have noticed a new feature, without realizing it. If you place your mouse cursor over a topic or post, you will shown two or three message summaries of that topic before entering the topic itself. This is called a PREVIEW function, which we think will a popular one because it prevents you from having to enter a topic to get a feel for what the topic might really entail. Don't know if you have noticed, but there is now a time indication on the user profile to the left of topics. That indicates the current time of the user's location. It is a not too subtle way of saying; "YO DUDE, DON'T EXPECT A REPLY IF IT IS 0300 HIS/HER TIME.." (or, in my case any time before 1100 and after 1200. :Nerd: We have also attempt to revive the award system, but have decided to move off that and on to another alternative. There are a lot of little tweaks and things that we are doing to improve your AVSIM Community and we'll keep you appraised as we have enough to report on.
  21. Hello, I'd like to know how to install the SP1b update correctly.First I installed my standard NGX file, what comes next?Do I also have to install the SP1 update prior to the SP1b?Thx very much for helping me out.cheers
  22. Hi,I have a couple of questions related to AS 2012 & PMDG 737 NGX.1) I plan a flight, for example, from EETN to LKPR (CRZ ALT F400). When I need to know what the CRZ TAS is going to be, I have to know the OAT in that level -- then I calculate speed mach 1 (in kts) according to that OAT and multiply it by the mach number which is going to be my CRZ (ECON from FMC); the speed that is economical for me in F400 is mach 0.782 … that's why I need accurate OAT -- BUT here I see the problem: For filling T/C OAT in FMC, I always find any airport that is located near by the T/C point (seen from NavDisplay), then I write this ARPT (ICAO) to the Active Sky (Wx Report) to see the TEMP at the required FL (under the symbols of weather, there are wind and temperature information for certain altitudes -- 3K, 6K, 9K, … 49K) -- so from that I can read that e.g. in 39K feet the OAT is –57.4 °C etc. According to that temps, I calculate the OAT for 40,000 ft (which is sometimes higher than in lower FLs -- possible?) -> I put that temp. to this http://www.csgnetwor...achonecalc.html and just calculate the mach 1 speed according to that temp, and then multply it by e.g. 0.782 -> I find out that my CRZ speed (that I also fill in the FPL) is going to be +- 447 KTAS. … well, as soon as I reached F400, I saw in FMC that the OAT was much lower, approximately –77 °C, so my airspeed then was a bit lower, e.g. just 425 KTAS and not 447 as I had been expecting… But if I check the weather at AS (locked to nearest ARPT), I can see there's just written something like 39K & –55.8, 44K & –57.4 --- so how is it possible that I have so much lower OAT than everywhere is issued? -- now I mean also this: -- also showing the TEMP if you open the wind forecast -- e.g. FL390 & showing –55 °C, but in FMC I can see OAT –77 °C…So, I'd like to know if the AS (and then aslo the JEPP. weather) shows the OAT correctly (-> then there must be any problem with FSX/PMDG), or if the OAT that shows FMC is correct. (But I suppose there shouldn't be any incorrect entry in the JEPP. weather maps.) :)And why do I need to know it?Well, just because I don't like when something is not working as it should / is not accurate, then also to fill the CORRECT CRZ airspeed to the FPL, and finally, when I calculate the EETs to FIRs, then it's not accurate (according to the planned TAS & actual TAS -- even if the wind is calm).P.S. I'm not using FSInn, but Squawkbox with Weather settings OFF.And the second, last, not so long question: :)2) Is it very important to have very quick internet connection to get the actual METARs on time (with minimum delay)? Because I have Wifi connection and sometimes it's delayed up to 20 min. -- it's 10:20 Z and I still have valid METAR from 09:30 Z (instead of 10:00 Z). And just one more note: In AS 2012 settings, I have set Automatic Downloads (+ VATSIM Online Weather) to every 5 min., but if I look on Wx Report, I can see “Last Updated: 00:15” and now it's 00:43 -> so “Last Updated” should now be showing +- 00:40 (update every 5 mins.); am I correct? (if yes, why is it not?)Thank you very much in advance!Adam
  23. Look on their facebook page, maybe the 777???I think it will be the SDK and the NGX update, or even the announcement of the Dash 8.What do you think?Cheers, Tom
  24. If I update my Airac Data for the NGX which has expired will it also update my Jetstream FMS??? Also how easy is it to run the update as I don't want to mess anything on my sim up. David
