Hi all— if you're a weirdo like me and prefer to work with the command line, you may be interested in this suite of CLI tools I've made for flight sim planning, called Icarus. DL link: https://github.com/musurca/Icarus Using Icarus from the command line, you can: * quickly pull up information about runways, navaids, LOC/DME freqs, etc. * download all published charts for an airport * get a current METAR * get a correct magnetic heading and distance from one navaid to another * download and decode/expand airport remarks * find the shortest route between two points, given the maximum range of your aircraft * calculate wind aloft * etc. I started putting this together a few months ago for my own use, but as it expanded I decided to make it available for everyone. If you end up using it, let me know what you think! Comments / suggestions always welcome.
We've been getting some support emails on how to save your Flight Log in Pilot Assist Pro. The solution is simple: Press the green "Cloud" button as shown below. That will save your Log files (which are saved in TXT, CSV and PDF) format to the APPS folder in your Dropbox folder.
Hi, I have been following the PMDG forum for a couple of years now and this is my first post. I bought the 777 for FSX and loved it. I am planning to buy one for P3D in the near future. I have a few questions regarding the upcoming B747-8 v2. 1. While looking through some pictures of the B747-8 flight deck, I noticed that they have electronic flight bags. Will these be modeled (if only for the PMDG setup menus if not for the charts)? 2. I saw several liveries for the B747-8 on the PMDG website. Will these be included as well. Sorry if this has already been discussed. Thanks Michael Crichlow
I understand that PMDG will not model the EFB in the 777 and 747-8. Instead of leaving the EFB place vacant in the 747-8, PMDG can at least use the EFB as a graphical load manager and fuel manager with diagrams that show seating chart, fuel load distribution etc.. This looks visually better than loading fuel and passengers thru FMC. I'm just comparing with what i've seen in X-plane aircraft like SSG 747-8. Also, in SSG 747-8, when you zoom in all the way on the ND, you can see the airport layout.. will this feature be available in PMDG 747-8 v2? Vinod Kumar.
