    Happy Birthday AVSIM! Happy 18th!

    It is indeed a pleasure to announce AVSIM's 18th Birthday today. We have had our share of sad news this last week, but with the bad also comes the good. 18 years! Happy Birthday to AVSIM and all of our community members! Please head out today and celebrate in your traditional fashion!

    AVSIM Returns to Facebook!

    After a number of years where we essentially let our Facebook presence lapse, we are pleased to announce that our Facebook presence is now back online and waiting to serve the Facebook enthusiasts in our hobby. You can find the AVSIM Facebook page here.
  3. Hey guys, Sorry to bother you, since I don't really have a question. [To Admin: My apologies in case this thread should be posted in another section.] I just wanted to thank the guys that run this website and the amazing community for all of your tremendous efforts! I've enjoyed FSX for a while now on a quite underpowered notebook, but am planning to get a decent rig and some complex and good-looking addons. Prior to reading through the Avsim forums I only had little knowledge of both hardware and software. Thanks to you guys I do know now, which hardware to get, how to set it up in order for FSX to (hopefully) run smoothly, how to tweak FSX (and not over-do with it), which addons to (not) get and where to look for further tutorials, troubleshooting documentation and so on. I am truly amazed that so many of you guys spend your leisure time writing all kinds of guides, creating tutorials, even programming new software tools, sharing additional content and giving free advice to not-so experienced sim pilots. Without you passing your knowledge and work I'd probably be very much lost in the world of FSX's quirks, spend too much money on a non-optimal PC and be frustrated after purchasing the wrong addons or not-knowing how to use the right ones. Huge thanks to all of you, who help keeping FSX more alive than ever! I appreciate it very much! I also just made my first ever online donation. It went to Avsim, of course. Cheers, Dom

    Temporary AVSIM Service Outage

    AVSIM forum and library services were affected this morning by a temporary service outage resulting from a slight hiccup with the server operating system. The site was unavailable for approximately 3 hrs. The issue was rectified and the site is now functional. As we are finishing up our server infrastructure upgrades and system updates in the coming weeks, we will continue to keep a close eye on how the services are running. If we expect any outages, it will be posted prominently on the AVSIM.com website. Alternatively, to stay up to date on any future outages, please visit our Facebook Page. We will post updates there if we are unable to communicate through the website. AVSIM is staffed completely by volunteers. Our IT volunteer has been spending many of his personal days off at the Ashburn, VA datacenter where AVSIM's servers are caged. As always, we appreciate your support and understanding as we work to make AVSIM's free services better. To join the discussion regarding this article, please visit the forum thread here.

    New Virtual Airline!

    Hello everyone, my name is Matthew Smith and currently I have the opportunity to start up something for the community. This could be a Virtual Airline, flying club, etc... It will be really good as it will have a good and easy to use website, detailed briefing system, detailed tracking and much much more. I need your help to tell me what you would like to see in the community. So far I have come up with a few of my own ideas for what this could be; A virtual British Airways, however it will be different from the others as you will not have to take an entry exam and the minimum age would be 13+ (as of vatsim and IVAO regulations), SWISS virtual, this will be a free one to join and will still offer unique features as stated above, finally a Virgin Atlantic virtual. Please reply to this topic if you like any of the ideas stated above. I am also open to other ideas that you would like to see so if you would like to see something else, please reply to this topic below. Remember: This will be build for and around you because after all your ideas are incredibly important to me and i'd love to hear your thoughts, Thanks.

    Road Mapping the Future

    Last Wednesday, March 20th, AVSIM met with and engaged an experienced team of IT specialists to aid in growing AVSIM and to maintain its robustness and responsiveness to our community in the future. They bring to our team skill sets that are applicable to our entire range of our present and future architecture and systems. Together, we are creating a road map for our future growth and stability. We will be working on that in the coming weeks and months. We will be adding substantially to the road map as we optimize our current system and prepare it for future additional hardware and software tools. Some of the things will be doing in the future include: Immediate Action Items: Replace three existing hard drives in Forum Server. Add two additional hard drives and configure for full RAID configuration. Near Term Action Items: Remove and replace all File Library drives with 1 TB units. Add two additional 1 TB units. Review MySQL database and optimize. Review hardware; Switch, NAS', Backup Storage system Longer Term: Add G5 as Test Platform Transitioning: When available in 2014, transition forums and library to V4.0 software. Reconfigure architecture to accommodate transition and improve efficiencies further. Of course, all of this assumes we can afford them and be able to keep the connection to the net alive at the same time.

    AVSIM Looking for Tech Leaders!

    We are on the hunt for an expert in Apache, MySQL and PHP. This is a volunteer position and we know that folks with these credentials are paid significantly for their work. However, we are looking for an expert / guru that has flight simulation and aviation peculating in their blood stream and want to help take AVSIM to the next level of service to the flight simulation community. The volunteer for this position on our staff will work for our Tech Manager, John Binner, and will work with John to optimize and fine tune the AVSIM server array. We are looking for someone that can put in an hour or two a week after the initial period of system assessment and execution planning. If you are a guru and want to contribute to the hobby, our community and to the future AVSIM, we would like to hear from you. If interested, please send an email telling us about your background and experience to tech@avsim.com. We want to hear from you!
  8. Speaking of member maps and such, we thought we would let you know that we are making it easier to connect with us. In addtion to our existing URL's of AVSIM.COM, AVSIM.NET, AVSIM.ORG, you can now dial in via: AVSIM.ASIA AVSIM.EU AVSIM.CO AVSIM.UK.COM AVSIM.US.COM AVSIM.INFO No matter which way you connect, we'll be sure to be here... Free of course to all.
  9. I saw the Forum section, and I think polling is a great idea! Potential questions: - "Which flight simulators do you use?" (list them) - "Which flight simulators did you stop using and why?" (list them) - "Do you think X-Plane 11 has potential?" (Yes/No/Maybe) - "Do you think Dovetail Games Flight Simulator has potential?" (Yes/No/Maybe) Just thinking.
  10. We are pleased to announce that we have added Virtavia aircraft to our growing product offerings. The Virtavia models are known for their detail and accuracy, and we are happy to now be able to offer these to you. Also, we would like to remind everyone that the MilViz products are still on sale at a whopping 50% off normal pricing. If you have not yet taken advantage of that tremendous discount!

    New NGX Liveries?

    G'day to everyone, and all of you fantastic flyers out there! I've been considering of what to say about the NGX over months past. This bird, by far, is one of the best FSX/FS9 addons out there. With that being said, I've flown hundreds upon hundreds of hours in the PMDG 737-800NGX and installed almost every livery and flew in them. If we can get enough comments about this, be my guest. I wanted to recommend, since I can't seem to do it ever, to request newer liveries for the PMDG 737800/900 RTM Base package. E.g: Southwest airlines, Airalaska, etc. Maybe Precisionmanulas can add some new liveries such as the following Airfrance [Royla Dutch] Fictional, like the 777-200L/r schemes, Shamu 737-800NGX for Southwest airlines Illinois one for southwest airlines (737-800) Arizona one for southwest airlines (737-800) Salmon scheme for Alaska Airlines Haribo Goldbáren (737-800) Another problem I am having is, I went to DXTBmp and made my own, HUGE project liveries that took days at a time. My reason being said for "days" is, I spent about anywhere from 7-15 hours for 1 week on 1 livery. None of these worked when I saved and compiled them . haribo_737_ngx.BAO.php. I even converted the texture files to .DDS and that still didn't make a difference. Even though the NGX is somewhat old, I would like some new liveries to be put fourth to this bird, for some extra enjoyment. I spent my day using the NGX and tinkering with some new flight plans. I have lots of new flights to be going with on, if these can possibly be added for everyone, or I can get some info on how I can make them, possibly someone to create them for me, I may be able to hire a professional for $24.75 a texture.

    Fs Passengers Error?!

    Hello, i dont know if im in the wrong section or something but i recently tried to start a flight with fs passengers x and i wanted to set my location etc but when i click the buttons in the menu, it does not respond? when i try to click on exit. i can click on it but it does not do anything. the menu just stands there and doesnt react. ps (sorry for my english)
  15. Dear Avsimmers, This is my first post and it's going to be short and to the point. I recently lost my installers for the 777. I was able to recover the zip file for the -300 Extension but I still need the one for the Base Package. I also can't find the e-mail with the Order Number and the PMDG Website says it won't find any of my e-mail addresses stored in their servers. This is weird because I remember buying the product, but it seems as if my order somehow doesn't exist in PMDG's servers.

    Chase Kreznor Appointed to Board of Directors

    The AVSIM Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Chase Kreznor has been nominated to and unanimously voted in as a member of the AVSIM Board of Directors. Chase has been a member since January, 2004 and has contributed tremendously to AVSIM as a volunteer for many years since. Chase will bring energy, and a singular focus on the hobby to the Board of Directors. Please join us in congratulating Chase for his new position with AVSIM!
  17. So I have the Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas X for a joystick + throttle. It has a swivel thing on the joystick to pan around the cockpit, external views, etc. Just yesterday, it simply stopped working. The joystick was plugged in, I changed nothing. It just stopped working. I reset the controller and FSX + a restart on my PC. The joystick appeared to be working okay until I tried to pan around my cockpit. It now pans much slower than before. It's super slow! It appears to have extreme lag too. But when I hold shift and pan with the mouse, I have perfect frames! What could be wrong with my controller. Any insight would be great as I'm pretty lost here.
  18. I had to disable (for now) the ability to paste raw formats into the text editor box. Members were unknowingly copying and pasting DIV, CSS, HTML, and other formatting elements into the message box and it was manipulating the rest of the page. For instance, one person copied an e-mail or a post to their clipboard, and pasted it into the box. The forum treated his post like a copy of the post he just copied and it looked very odd. I really liked the ability to just be able to copy and paste formats, but there was a hidden downside that I'm trying to mitigate. Hopefully we can turn this back on when we figure out a control for it.

    AVSIM's New Store to Open Shortly

    With all the activity surrounding the opening of the new AVSIM Library this coming Friday, we have kept in background our additional efforts in building a new, integrated solution for the AVSIM Store. If not earlier, we will be bringing the new AVSIM Store on line a week from Friday, June 8th. It's current status is that it is populated with product, functioning as expected, and going through some refinements. As with the Library, the Store will be an integrated solution for our members. We think you will like the ease and familiarity of its use, and hopefully, the products that you will find there. We will of course keep you updated over the next week or so.
  20. It is indeed a pleasure to announce AVSIM's 18th Birthday today. We have had our share of sad news this last week, but with the bad also comes the good. 18 years! Happy Birthday to AVSIM and all of our community members! Please head out today and celebrate in your traditional fashion! This post has been promoted to an article
  21. Hi there! Apologies for not posting this in the "Library" forum, but I'm currently unable to do so due to being a new member. I don't appear to be able to download any files from the AVSim Library at all. They all become immediately corrupted. I'm running Windows 10 version 1703 build 15063.483, non-Insider. The issue persists across all browsers I've tried so far - IE, Edge, Firefox and Chrome - albeit the case that it manifests itself slightly differently in each: IE (11.483.15063.0) and Edge (40.15063.0.0 with EdgeHTML 15.15063) both ask to download the file, then when I click "Save" immediately say "[filename] couldn't be downloaded". On pressing "Retry", the download completes suspiciously fast, and then produces a corrupted .zip file. Chrome (59.0.3071.115 64-bit) allows the download as usual, but produces the corrupted .zip file. It acts, however, as if the file is perfectly normal. Firefox (Aurora, 55.0b6 32-bit) refuses to even let me click the "Save file" popup, instead offering an error: This issue appears no matter what file I am downloading. Interestingly, it also appears when trying to explore any non-plaintext file in ZipDive! - for instance, PDFs come up with "This PDF document might not be displayed correctly" in Firefox and "PDF unreadable" in Edge - but plaintext ZipDive! files are A-OK. I note that the page talks about FTP, but the linked page is a standard 443 PHP page, not an FTP link - might this be the root of the issue, trying to send FTP data over a SSL connection rather than an FTP one? Appreciate any help. Thanks, Curtis
  22. can someone please make the Norwegian Air Roald Dahl livery for the PMDG 737-800 https://www.planespotters.net/photo/723252/ei-fjw-norwegian-air-international-boeing-737-8jpwl Thanks would really appreciate it

    ...BEX

    Recently, I re-installed FSX as I think every now and then FSX need's a good re-install! But I have found that I get a lot of CTD with FSX when I wan't to change an aircraft or change something like settings. Also when I wan't to change airports ext... I have never really came across this issue with FSX before! When FSX done it's CTD, it's problem (I think) seemed to be something called "BEX" . I seen that there was a "fix" video for it on YouTube for FSX, but that didn't do any thing to be honest.... Any suggestions? Cheers, E.M.
