    Muelheim Ruhr X Update

    Hi! There have recently been some changes to the freeware scenery Muelheim Ruhr X. It has been modernized and it has been polished up with the current technical possibilities of modern scenery design. First, long-planned texture optimizations were made. Then a new airport layout was created, which has differentiated material properties. In addition, a newly developed and animated Zeppelin was integrated into the scenery. The term zeppelin is actually not correct, because this type of airship is called Blimp. The software package includes seasonal objects such as umbrellas, blimp and hay bales. The scenery is rounded off by the new Avatar Steven. With it you can explore the many details of the airport very well. The scenery can be downloaded as usual without registration from the Bahrometrix download page. Barrier-free download: P3DV4 Mülheim Ruhr X V1.15 New features / changes - seasonally controlled objects (in-game) WDL Blimp parasols Bale / Heuquader Plants / Planters - Color correction of the airport orthophoto - Layout with differentiated material properties - current ground markings - Texture optimizations - New Avatar Steven All features according to P3DV4 SDK specifications, the seasonal objects are based on the in-game possibilities of the P3DV4. Pictures ... The new airport layout contains current ground markings All surfaces have different material properties, the markings and the asphalt surface reflect differentiated solar radiation. In addition, the asphalt surface was created with a rain-mirroring effect. the stronger the rain, the stronger the effect The new avatar. His name is Steven The hay bales, as well as the umbrellas on the terrace, the blimp and plants are seasonally controlled The plants and parasols are only available in the summer months The Blimp is animated and flies a 45-minute flight over the Essen and Muelheim - it's a new development at Bahrometrix The sightseeing flight of Blimp also takes place in the evening
  3. Hi people! This is my first post here, and its regarding Wilco's EMB FMS. The fact is since I have this product, which is quite nice though, i've been having problems on inpunt the ALTN airport in the FMS. Once I've completed all the tasks, like F-PLN, PERF, etc, I go to ALTN FPL PAGE and when I put my alternate airport in the LSK, nothing happens. Well, in fact, the FMS shows me the CANCEL - ACTIVATE buttons but the LSK remains empty also if I press ACTIVATE; off course I also can't perform an ALTN FPL or a ALTN PERF FPL. Isn't an estructural problem initially. But is quite annoying. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Does anybody have a fix for this problem?
  5. Hello, I was wondering if anyone is having this problem, the program hangs and crashes when I try to change the airport! I have the latest version running on Windows 10, P3D. Thanks
  6. Hello, Does anybody have experience of the Earth Simulations Isle of Man scenery; i have never heard of the company before, i was looking for somewhere different to fly my Q400 too and this looked interesting.

    Airport Gate Database

    Is it possible to determine which gates at which airports are in the database? I sure spend a lot of time trying to init pos places that aren't in the database on the FMC.
  8. Hello everybody. I have problem with missing terminal buildings. When I start a new flight at any airport everything is okay. But when I land at any other airport, some of the terminal buildings disappear. I see only airbridges(jetways) and nothing behind them. I reinstalled FSX many times but it's still the same.. I am running Win 7 64bit, FSX Acceleration pack. Can anyone help me with fixing it? Many thanks(Sorry for my poor english )
  9. Hi Guys! Myself and a mate of mine have designed and are in the process of building a full scenery package for the small GA Aerodrome located in the South of Tasmania, Australia. The strips called Cambridge Airport (YCBG) and the default rendering of it just doesn't live up to what it could potentially be. We have added the extra runway, taxiways, terrain and are in the process of attempting to make 3D Buildings which will be photoreal for the strip. Anybody with any experience with scenery development and design for FSX, we would love to have on board! I have put together some quick video's of our progress up on Youtube if anybody is interested in it. Thanks Guys!
  10. The airport lighting at the default airports look much better than most third party ones I've seen. No more floating lights above the runway and the size of the lights are smaller and much more realistic than the ones i see at like FSDT and FB airports. I am asking if third party airport developers can please use the default lighting in P3Dv4 instead. Being consistent here would make the experience so much better. Especially when flying from airport to airport. I've never really like the runway lighting that third party airport developers used. If you look at them closely and compare to the default lighting then you should notice how unrealistic and ugly they look. P3Dv4 has updated its entire lighting engine so i really hope that we will see more consistent lighting acoss all airports from now on. This is one thing i really appreciated in X-Plane, the lighting is consistent everywhere between stock and third party scenery. Thats the key here and in the end will make things more polished. It's being consistent across the board so please take this into consideration.
  11. Mykonos Airport is our team's first project! It has been already released by Aerosoft from April 28, 2014 and has been update to v1.01 at October 27, 2014. Also is available to Steam users from November 24, 2014. Introduction Mykonos Airport is sited in the island of Mykonos, an island in the middle of Aegean Sea. One of the most historic places on earth from mythology up to today. Most known today for the summer wild night life, is a must destination for world's biggest celebrities! Combining luxury with a cozy village-like feeling, beaches for any kind of taste, classic Aegean Sea style white/blue houses to ultra-luxurious villas, is one of the top destinations in the world. The airport has a single 2,000 meter long runway (16/34) which is significant curved on the approach end of runway 34. So curved that aircrafts on that end are almost not visible from the tower! But this makes it quite challenging to land since the touchdown point is in an uphill, making hard to judge the distance from the ground! Talking about challenges, Mykonos Airport has a full hand of them for you! Departing from runway 16 is also challenging since the aircraft, due the curved runway, is getting out of ground effect as soon as you lift off and in less than from the altitude of the airport (405 feet) you are above the sea. Runway 16 approaches are allowed only under VFR since there is a hill range in sort distance in the final approach path. Than means also that departing runway 34 you have to turn immediately to the left to avoid them! Not enough for you? Mykonos island's nickname is the "Island of the winds", which means that is common to have also strong winds added to the challenge. Also a hill just east of the airport create, depending the wind direction, updrafts or downdrafts! The Scenery Mykonos Airport scenery package includes the whole island of Mykonos (a 140 km2 area) covered with high definition orthophotos. The island is full of 3D houses and trees (although trees are sparse in Mykonos). Classical windmills turning slowly, while the green waters around the beaches are mixed with the deep blue ones. Special care has taken to the night lighting. With the HDR lighting possibility of X-Plane we have designed the night lighting to be realistic and efficient! Availability - Support Mykonos Airport is release under Aerosoft brand and it is available from Aerosoft's store. Also is available through the most major vendors around the world. The support of that product includes free updates for the whole X-Plane 10 run. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!
  12. Hi guys, I am posting this topic to ask you if you could provide us (a small team of talented flightsimmers who started to create a Dubai World scenery. For sure, it will not be a high-end quality scenery but we want to improve the realism in the flightsimulator and to build up some hangars, warehouses or terminals in the flightsim. As there are not really much photos available from DWC for now, we need your help! If you were there or you have the possibility to get there to make some photos of the hangars from Emirates SkyCargo, the Terminal or the taxiways/stands, it would really nice to get them. Please let me know in order to give you a possibility to share with us your photos. Thanks a lot in advance, Timm
  13. I've been wanting a change of career to try something new after doing graphic design for almost 15 years now as full-time and as a freelancer. Since I really love aviation and love being at the airport. Does anyone know what type of positions I would be eligible for? I only have a associates degree in graphic design/visual communication. So I would need a job that doesn't require too many qualifications. I'm assuming a job that requires your typical High School Diploma/GED would work. I live in Houston and would like to work at KIAH (G. Bush International). I've been unemployed for almost 2 years now, and have been doing freelancing work while I can, but it's becoming slow and unstable. I would like full-time or even part-time. To be honest, I'm desperate for a job, as I have bills piling up. So I would like to ask the AVSIM community for some advice on what type of job I can qualify for at an airport and what the hourly pay/salary and benefits would be like. Since any type of position offered at the airport is working for the city, I'll be getting decent benefits which is very important at my age. I'm 38 now, and my health is slowly deteriorating and I definitely need to find a job with a good benefits package that will help secure my future until the day I retire. I appreciate any input, advice or constructive feedback that you guys can offer me. Thanks in advance!
  14. If you are working on perfecting your pattern entry to non-towered or towers manned part-time, here is the official FAA link to the Advisory Circular detailing the changes, ...and here is a much clearer version. In flight ops, I've routinely used the "newly" preferred entry to stay clear of existing traffic in the pattern since you cross above the traffic pattern altitude (TPA) and do a circling descent into the downwind at 45 degrees. This minimizes the possibility of a mid-air when the pattern is full of fledglings 😉
  15. Hi guys, first off thanks for any help anyone can offer me in this problem I am having. I am in the process of converting our flight sim programs from fsx to P3D. In the past we have used Eric Cagan's version of KGCC airport for our scenery of our home airport to keep it more real for training pilots. Now when we try to load our scenery as an add on in P3D we cant see any of our buildings. Runways, taxiways and everything else look fine but alas no buildings to be seen. I have contacted Eric about finding a way to fix it, but he is not familar with P3D and in fact originally created the scenery for FS9. His scenery is available the the avsim library and I was wondering if someone might have a way to fix this. Scenery is here Any help would be appreciated.

  17. SIM720 is pleased to present KSBA Santa Barbara airport This interesting airport in California is used by commercial airlines to fly to many other States in the USA; the most frequent of which are flights to Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco, Denver, Seattle and Portland. Used by United Airlines for more than 75 years it has also played its role in WWII. Santa Barbara includes animated people and a new style interior perspective on the buildings. Installs into FSX, P3Dv1 and P3Dv2.

    AI traffic help needed!

    Hello everybody. Well, i've played fsx for many years now, but I recently started to mod my fsx (better than never) and i downloaded the afcad Dubai World Central - Al maktoum Airport. The creator says he tested it with Custom traffic and AI traffic, but i can't seem to do it... I've tried with AI traffic planner but when I'm done with the flightplans nothing happens!!! Could any of you try to do it with the Add-on?'> Or at least try to guide me through the "AI traffic creation on a new airport in fsx" problem i have? I know this is much to ask for, but I'll appreciate it so much!!! Thank you!! Frederik If any of you thinks this topic is in the wrong place or is a elongation of another topic, just write it. But i would appreciate if someone could answer my specific problem. Cheers again

    FSX terrain covering airport

    So I have just found out that the terrain at some of the airports is covering the runway, making it had to taxi and takeoff: Has anyone else had this problem? is there a solution for it? thanks for your help.
  22. For those Who are not aware I found some cool Airport Service Vehicles for FS2004, There pretty old but hard to find I certanly had fun with them.below i posted one of my you tube videos there you will see them in action. I simply used Fs-recorder and merged all individual recordings as traffic playback. Here is the link for the Airport Ground service trucks http://www.fs2000.or...t-pushback-cars there is a few trucks on that one download do not let the picture Full you. Theirs a Push back truck,a latter truck (witch animates people going up or down the steps),a catering truck with am elevation loading box ect ect. Here is the video link to see them in action
  23. Hello fellow flight Simmers! We are very excited to announce our new work collaborated with Latinwings about Valencia LEVC airport in Spain! Please take a look our progress on main building (Terminal) Ground and ANIMATED JETWAYS Hope you like it. Thanks from me and Icarus team
  24. 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: Blue Skies Oliver Mitchell
  25. Hi there, I have a really serious problem with my flightsim. When I select to load my plane at a certain airport, it unfortunately, does not do that. This happens at a number of my airport with sceneries. For example: I select my plane to load at flytampa tampa. Yet, when it has finished loading, it loads the plane 5 miles from the runway, in a field or in tampa bay. FSX can't understand it, and tries to reload the plane, but it just ends up with a continuous loop of loading in a field or water. Also, when I fly within a 100 mile radius of the airport, fsx refreshs into a new load but on the ground, no matter what my altitude or speed is. However this doesn't happen at night... This happens to a number of my other airports- all flytampoa tpa, and dxb (sometimes), simgiants (free) tenerife north, hawaii photoreal mesh, and some other areas. Just now, I was flying Bristol to tenerife, at FL370, but when I came within 500 miles of tenerife, the fsx reloaded, and the next thing I knew, my plane was in the water. This problem first arose, back in November, when I installed Flytampa tampa. I really need helpm with this! Thanks a lot Harry Karmel
