Our Airbus 320neo will deliver all our passengers to one of our 20 destinations with great choices of Skybus repaints, created by expert aircraft painters for msfs2020.

  2. Hello everyone, I have have a problem with the new addon scenery Berlin Tegel from Gaya. I purchased it today on the marketplace in fs2020 and tried it after downloading it. I recognized that a few Buildings are sunken in the ground and that the bridge on taxiway PW/PE isn't usable because of a buggy scenery so i reinstalled it several times but i can't fix it does someone has the same problem or a solution for this problem? My Theory is that this whole scenery is to high in the world some buildings standing on the original ground an som are standing on the new raised ground cousing these bugs. Greeting from Berlin B.B

  4. Hello there. I built a system with the specs listed in my signature. Everything was fine in the first place. I was getting min 48-55 fps in P3D V4.5 with Overcast clouds bad weather + ORBX global + openLC + Vector + PMDG 777 + Active Sky + REX Sky Force HD clouds + Aerosoft Mega Airport Frankfurt with high settings. A friend of mine had set the Nvidia control panel for P3D v4.5 and it was all good. GPU temp was reaching 62-65C max which is pretty good at Auto Fan RPM. Then i wanted to try something different with Nvidia Control Panel settings and my FPS dropped to around 29-33 with the scenario i mentioned above. Interestingly, it feels like My gpu is no longer being used fully by the sim and GPU temp is not rising at all. I dont really remember how it all was set up in the beginning. My current Nvidia settings like that. I'm in need of suggestions to correct this. Thanks in advance
  5. I have worked on this for a while now to make this sound accurate and add as much realism as I can for FSX.

In addition to the previously announced items, we are pleased to provide further information below (In no particular order) A day in the life of… a Heathrow Tower Controller A long-standing VATSIM member and real-world Heathrow Tower Controller will give a perspective from the control tower of one of the busiest airports in Europe. We will find out about the logistics, planning necessary to accommodate nearly 1,300 flights each day, bringing over 200,000 people through the airport. BAVirtual The CEO of BAVirtual will present to us the latest goings-on within one of the community’s longest standing virtual airlines. As they tackle new challenges such as pilot training it will be fascinating to hear this perspective. Pilot’s Perspective: Life on the other side of the scope One of VATSIM’s experienced Enroute Controllers will detail the tools and techniques used to keep traffic flowing safely and efficiently. This session will provide useful situational awareness for pilot’s flying in complex and busy airspace during their future flights. A day in the life of… a Eurocontrol Controller A VATSIM member and current Enroute Controller in Europe will present a perspective of life from the Maastricht UACC. This center handles approx. 5000 flights per day and this presentation will touch on some of the challenges involved in this operation. Workshop: Controlling Techniques Learn some of the tricks of the trade in enroute and approach controlling with this interactive and informative workshop for controllers. Panel Discussion: VATSIM and careers in aviation Three members of our community, one who is a Pilot for a large European business jet operator, another a Flight Safety Investigator for a UK based airline and the third an Air Traffic Controller will discuss how their time on VATSIM has influenced and affected their real-life career paths and in addition will provide some advice for those wishing to follow in their footsteps. Please note: this is not a definitive list other content will be added in the coming weeks and may be subject to alteration without notice.
  7. Hi there, I paid and downloaded an addon Airport via the MSFS Market Place (PC) Only issue is, its installed version 1.0 which contains some texture issues, I read on the developers main webpage that this was fixed in version 1.2 which is now available to download. When I check my content manager it says version 1.0 is up to date, but on all other website its version 1.2, does anyone know why MSFS isn't updating this, I really do not want to pay AGAIN outside of the market place just to get an update Thanks Perry
  8. Hi all, So I would like to start creating more content and recording, ie. landings / take off. I saw there is a recording thing built in which is fine, but when you play back, it only plays back in the camera setting which you recorded in, If that makes sense. I would like to know if there is a programme or a way for me to record and then when I play back, to be able to change camera angles, i.e. record taking off from cockpit, but replay and view this from inside the cabin? I saw a programme called "Flight Control Replay" which does this, but does not show animation, ie. in replay mode it doesn't show the gear retracting, or the flaps retracting etc.. any help would be great! as I see videos on youtube where they replay recordings in all different camera settings/views Thanks as always! Perry
  9. Hi there, I have an issue with MSFS2020, the photogrammetry setting is turned on as I like the detail, unfortunately in built up areas, I.e: London, all of the buildings do not look right. I can only describe it as they looked kind of melted, if I pause the game then like 10 seconds later that area I'm flying over will finally clear up and look ok ish but still doesn't look great. any solutions? I have tried all the basic stuff like emptying the cache etc, I have a good internet connection too and a decent PC set up. NVIDIA RTX3070ti, 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-11600K @ 3.90GHz 3.91 GHz, 32GB RAM any help will be much appreciated Thanks Perry

  12. Good afternoon everyone, I bought the NGX one year ago, and have been thinking about getting a plane to do long haul flights, and waited for the release of the 744 to choose between that or the triple 7. But I'm still unsure about which one to buy! Cheers! João Portugal

  14. Hello, I am kinda new to the flightism community and just recently bought the PMDG 737-800 NGX and love the aircraft. I dont like to be right up on the cockpit window so I go back as zoom out as far as FSX will let me go. (Dont know what decimal that is to be exact just got FSX couple weeks ago) So I loaded the PMDG 737 NGX and realized that the MCP labels, FMC buttons, and Overhead button were blurry untill I zoomed in on it. I saw some videos and it seems like they dont have this problem. So I was wondering if there was anyway to fix this. Thank you so much. Happy Holidays! Xplosion
