  1. A2A Announce Bonanza V-Tail

    GA specialists A2A Simulations are developing a 'V-Tail' Beech Bonanza. A2A founder Scott Gentile made the announcement in a YouTube video released this afternoon. In the video, Gentile revealed intricate details of the development process, including the real-world flight testing process A2A have developed in order to develop their flight models. Hinting at the depth of the flight modelling being attempted, Gentile told viewers "the Bonanza V-Tail pilot has more in common with a warbird pilot than a Comanche pilot. "Next time you look at a V-Tail Bonanza sitting on the ramp, understand it isn't just unique looking -- it flies differently than any other aircraft in the air." In addition to the Bonanza announcement, Gentile also revealed the company has been developing a brand new Accu-sim physics engine, as well as 'intelligent installers' for P3D version 4 and a new store front and loyalty programme. Also hinted at was a 'secret project' of which details are yet to be revealed; the only hint in the video is a black background with a ticking clock and some intercom 'chatter' -- perhaps hinting at some form of flight instruction module. Watch the full video below.
  2. LM Moving to XPLANE

    LM are working on Xplane. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/04/03/nasa_lockheed_martin_silent_supersonic_plane/
  3. Damn, I just realized how much I used to pirate software, but I'm out of that life now. I wanna know if there's a good a320 OR a330 Or a340 OR a380 for Xplane 11 that is freeware. Thank you guys, you are an amazing community!
  4. Ideas / Opinions

    Hey all! I'm curious to pick the vast knowledge here on Avsim. Mostly I fly G.A. generally A2A airplanes, as they are extremely realistic which I love. Lately I have been getting the itch to fly quicker on vatsim, and higher faster etc. I currently have the A2A connie, This is a perfect airplane (I am an old school steam gauge person) but it isn't that well suited for short hops...Or is it? I purchased recently the extreme prototypes Learjet 25. It is a great plane, but the VC night lighting only has 1 setting, and it is almost too powerful for me at a standard 3-4K FPM climb rates, and almost an instant 300KTS after takeoff I am looking to play around going from KMEM - KDFW or hops as such. (Even KXNA/KLIT to KDFW / KMEM etc) I have been looking at the Aerosoft CRJ7 I have been reading on the forums about it alot. I have seen both sides of the argument, it looks okay but there may be still some bugs here or there. Also it is fully glass and I am not that comfortable flying RNAV / SIDS / Arrival procedures. I looked at the new MD-82 It is more analog but still relies on RNAV to some extent. It also looks like quite an undertaking to learn. Similar story with the Dash - 8 More of a glass cockpit, and larger airplane too. I've looked at king-airs, but it looks like the main "best" one is still being converted to P3Dv4 and that was also equipped with the glass cockpit. I've read that very sadly the Real Air turbine duke is no longer available too. Should I just continue to fly the Conni and my current G.A. fleet around? Or is there another alternative aircraft I haven't heard of? (Keep in mind I would like study level or the closest to it) Thank you much, looking forward to reading what thoughts everyone has!
  5. Hello, I've recently downloaded this package for an updated Default FS Ford Trimotor from flightsim.com (filename in library: new_4at-e.zip), and it contains a really nice but simple autopilot gauge that I've been trying to add to David Molyneaux's Airspeed AS.5 Courier (filename in flightsim library: airspeed_courier.zip). This autopilot gauge simply holds the Altitude and/or Heading that the plane has the moment you flip the switches (or click the respective assigned keys in your keyboard). This is in my opinion a much simpler, cleaner looking and ''legit'' way of having an AP in vintage aircraft (as opposed to simply add the Bendix AP to the panel :P ). I decided to add the gauge to several other vintage aircraft I have, which I have done so successfully simply by adding the relevant gauge.xx..... line to the panel.cfg (making the switches show up in the main panel), and changing the "autopilot_available=" from 0 to 1 in the [autopilot] section of the aircraft.cfg. All the aircraft I have updated with this AP gauge so far have it working flawlessly; but now enter my problem with David's Courier: The AP holds the altitude correctly, but if I select the heading hold, the airplane just starts banking more and more to the right, until it enters a downward spin and slams into the ground!! I compared the Courier's aircraft.cfg [autopilot] section with the same section in my other successfully AP updated aircraft and nothing unusual sticks out... though I'm not very knowledgeable of this particular section of the cfg file. *EDIT* I'm not sure if this is also relevant, but I just noticed that while all the aircraft where the AP works perfectly make a warning sound when I disengage the Master Switch (even though the sound is not the same in all aircraft), in the Courier there is no sound! *EDIT* If someone could help me figure out this problem I'd be very grateful! I can post the relevant cfg entries, and the xml text of the gauge if it's also relevant! Thank you Leonardo Santos
  6. Carb heat efficiency improvement

    When weather and/or flight conditions may provoque icing, I use to turn my carb heat on. In real life this action move the needle of my carburetor temp gauge to the right. In Prepard3D this action didn't really work, carb head temperature stays stable. My question : is there anyway to improve the carb heat efficiency in the airplane parameters air file or aircraft.cfg ? Thanks to the master mechanicians
  7. Hi We currently need someone capable of creating a repaint for a number of aircraft. we have screenshots of what we're thinking because our designer mocked up a 737 before he left. The Virtual Airline is completly fictional so there is no deffinitive paint scheme! We are looking to repaint the following; PMDG 737-700/800 PMDG 747-400 .Quality Wings 757-2/300 Majestic Dash-8 Areosoft Airbus A320/21 If you can help with all or even just one please reply to this post or email myself 'ceo@uk-######.co.uk' Happy Flying!
  8. I came across this little gem to get everyone in the X-Plane 11 community salivating... Javier is doing an incredible job in creating a version 2 of his popular CRJ-200. I'd been following his live streams, highlighting the development, design and production of this great aircraft. I never got around to purchasing the first one, but I may have to seriously consider getting v2 now. Enjoy!
  9. Aircraft Bad Shaders

    Hey guys I´m having some troubles with the shaders on FSX. As you can see on the image above, the aircraft sahders look really bad. I don´t know what is happening but it is shure I´m getting mad with it.
  10. Hi all Quite a noob to FSX but liking what I've seen so far. Couple of things have cropped up and I'm working a process of elimation to figure them out. One thing which has started happening recently is that each time I check the flight status via the escape menu, the sim freezes and returns to Windows10 when I try to get back to the cockpit. I suspect this may be caused by an add on as I've put one or two in and when running vanilla never had the issue. System: AMD A10 6790K @4GHZ 8GB RAM GeForce GTX 750 Windows 10 ORBX England UTX (turned off at the moment) I also downloaded a Boing 747-400 mega pack (from Rikoo I think, it was a while ago) and I want to remove this, but cannot find the aircraft where I'd expect to see them in the SimObjects>>>Airplanes folder. This is just containing the default craft, despite my airplane list being full of 747's! Any help appreciated on these points, thanks in advance.
  11. I am giving away two payware aircraft this month and the next couple of months! June winners will be announced on my YouTube channel June 24th 1900z. Check how to enter the contest in the the video below:
  12. Hello! My name is Oliver Mitchell and I am very excited to announce the developement of fsFinance. What is fsFinance? fsFinance (short for Flight Simulator Finance) is an online management system for your virtual fleet. It isn't a virtual airline as such, more of a system to track your flights. At the moment, we currently have 2 modes available - Career and Sandbox. Career: Career mode is where you begin with a set budget, and purchase aicraft. As a result of this 'set budget', you will only have enough to buy certain types of aicraft (Cessna's, not a 747). Use these aicraft to operate virtual flights and generate an income to buy more aicraft. Once you have yourself a little money, purchase the more expensive aircraft such as a Boeing 737 - This will increase passenger capacity, range etc. You can fly different airlines at once, remember fsFinance is all about what YOU want to do. Sanbox: Sandbox mode is known as 'Diving in at the deep end'. No budget. No restrictions. Simply operate whatever flights you wish, its up to you. fsEconomy will track your flights. At the moment, the website is coming along smoothly. This will form the backbone of the system before I can write the program to record your flights. In time, this project will become a first of its type, using a variety of tricks to enable the most groundbreaking features possible. This whole system will be completely Free, and best of all, this system is going to be UP TO YOU! Whatever features you would like, ask and thou shall recieve! What would YOU like to see in this? It's up to you! Over the years I have been a simmer, I have always noticed something has been missing. This will fill the gap. Any suggestions, ideas or just general ideas go to: olivermitchell.sec@gmail.com Blue Skies Oliver Mitchell
  13. Hello I just installed the Fsx Constellation professional, and am having a great time with the aircraft, I do however have one question. Are there any Repaints for the constellation? Especially Trans Canada air lines L-1049 Super constellation, This is really the airline and aircraft that I wish to repaint(since I like flying my flights from Canada), but I have searched a decent amount and haven't found anything on it either. I also installed the F-lite Dc-10 and was wondering if there was a repaint for Canadian Airlines in 1995 version for a Dc-10-30. Is it technically possible to transfer repaints, so say that the aircraft is made, but the same aircraft with a different repaint which belongs to another developer. Thank you and if anyone has made them or knows if it possible to get these repaints on these airlines please just write a response.
  14. PMDG 777 Texture and Skin fail

    Need Assistance Please: I downloaded from PMDG my purchased copy of the 777 and extension. I have installed and activated now several times said files. During night time, the textures and skin of any of the liveries I have also downloaded do appear, however in day light situations, they disappear. Meanwhile, all the freeware aircraft I have downloaded work just fine. I do have "aircraft cast shadows" turned off because I run a lot of add-on scenery, such as Flytampa Kai Tak so the AI aircraft scenery are not invisible. Perhaps I should turn that option 'on' and see what happens. Since I run a lot of add-ons, I did lower my settings so it didn't eat up a lot of memory, that still didn't work so I'm wondering f there is another problem??? Here's what's I'm running in my pc: Windows 10 Intel® Core i3-3220 CPU @ 3.30GHz 3.30GHz Installed RAM 16.0 GB 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor I do have a screen shot but I have no idea of how to attach it. All that is visible are the inner workings of the engine, parts of the cockpit, gear struts and other odds and ends that do not make it possible to identify what type of aircraft, livery etc...kinda like a goddamn ghost really. I do run Highmemfix=1 as well as many other fsx tweaks. Anyways, if anyone has ideas, I'm all ears. Matt Ewert Saskatchewan, Canada
  15. Should I buy PMDG 777?

    A year ago, I think i made a bad flightsim decision.. I was trying to save on money and bought CS 777 instead of PMDG 777.. the night lighting is bad, flight dynamics, engine/APU start sequence inaccurate, etc.. I was euphoric at the money I saved but I'm finding out all the little flaws of the CS 777 over time that are now shadowing whatever monetary benefit I gained.. I'm seriously considering retiring my CS 777 in the Mojave desert and thinking about buying PMDG 777. Wanted to hear from the community if this is a good decision. If I'm going to buy it, any idea when the best deals are out there? Should I wait for black friday/thanksgiving sale etc? Does PMDG typically offer big discounts during holiday sales? I see that Aerosoft is selling PMDG base 777 at 67 Euro which is about 15-20 $ cheaper than the PMDG website.. I'm all ears for suggestions and advise... Cheers. Vinod Kumar.
  16.

  18. I've decided to merge the Sim Director, scenery and aircraft forums into the P3D General Forums. So, in the future we will have just the P3D and the Tips and Tricks Forum. I would encourage everyone to still post hardware questions in the hardware forums and any CTD's in the AVSIM CTD Forum but we will not be moving any of these topics out of the P3D Forum. Screenshots of your favorite P3D adventure, scenery, aircraft and videos will continue to be moved to the screenshot and video forums so please do not post them here. The topic tag system will be very important when creating new posts so that members can better search for the information they are seeking. We hope this will make it easier for new members (and old members) to decide the best forum to use to post their questions. Thanks for making AVSIM one of the best resources for flight simulation discussions and entertainment. We appreciate it!
