  1. Just started recently. Will be taxiing at an airport and from the virtual cockpit some buildings disappear then later reappear. Have only noticed this at default airports so far. If I switch to external views the buildings are always there. Only seems to affect views from the VC. I have all my Scenery Display sliders to the far right except Mesh Resolution, which I have set to 2M, and Water Effects set to 2.x Low. Airplane model I have noticed this in is the RealAir TDv2.
  2. I have been an avid simmer since 1995 at least.. all within the Microsoft world from FS95' FS98', FS2000', FS2002, FS2004, FSX Acceleration... Alot of time and $ invested. I am looking at the new sims out there, P3d, Xplane 11, Ifly, etc... I simply don't know which direction to take moving forward. I cannot make up my mind and was hoping in the forum I could get some help and suggestions from fellow simmers that have taken the plunge one way or the other. Any help would be greatly appreciated... Clay Collins claycollins1atgmaildotcom

    this one looks different...quite inconveniently there is no info about where to get there is no way to see if its any better...
  4. I would like to reduce the volume of the constant "swooshing sound" in the cockpit of most jetliners (default and third party). I'm not sure what this sound is suppose to represent but it interferes with the ability to hear ATIS, ATC and FS2Crew. I've never been in the cockpit of a running jetliner but my common sense tells me that pilots do not have problems hearing ATIS, ATC or their FO because of a loud swooshing sound,,,perhaps because they wear headsets. In any case, is there anyway to reduce this sound? None of the sound sliders have any affect on it's volume (I turn all of them to zero and still get the exact same volume). Thanks
  5. Modifications to the freeware BAC 1-11 series aircraft by Dave Maltby with the exception of the 1-11-510ED because it uses a different avionics fit. These modifications improve FSX compatibility, iron out some bugs and enhance some features. The aircraft and panel package(s) for the 1-11 have to be installed in order to use this! FeaturesAdded switch, button, knob, etc... sounds Changed entire APU system to use FSX' default APU Changed engine fire extingusher logic Modifed engine start logic Recoded bleed air pressure system Added keyboard controls for spoilers Changed "Mixture lever increase" clickspot behaviour Modified airspeed indicator bugs Added autothrottle switch Better tooltips for some instruments Imagetool and a suitable batch file for texture conversion into FSX' .dds format are included DownloadThe latest revision of the file can always be downloaded from here. Read the Readme!
  6. Hi, After a long time, I returned to MS FSX, and decided to fly with my all time favorite Boeing 777-300ER. I downloaded POSKY Singapore airline package from simviation(Link: I did this: 1. I loaded the aircraft at a gate. 2. Since it is placed too front to the gate, I used push back(Shift + P) to align correctly with the line. The Posky push back tug appeared when i turned on the push back and went off when i turned the push back off. (Note : I used the native FSX push back option and not the POSKY push back) 3. I saved the simulation so that i could resume after a couple of hours. 4. Once I loaded the save point, i could see that the push back tug was in the nose gear and did not disappear even when i pressed Shift + P 5. It appears till I take off and get my gears inside. 6. Even during touch down at the runway, the push back tug appears. I am literally clueless what is causing the tug to appear, I have tried my best to sort it down, but in vain. So guys, please help me out with this issue. Am I the only one who has this issue?? Request help from you guys to sort this issue. It is horrible to see this mighty bird takeoff with the Push back tug.

    Working B777 Freeware?

    Hello All, After many years away from FS, I have become very interested again and installed FSX Steam Edition and logged many many hours over the holidays. Over the past two weeks I have been looking for a good solid working freeware add-on for a B777, preferably -300ER but a -200 will do (as a GE Aviation engineer my preference is a model with GE90-115B engines :smile:). I have done extensive searches and have found lots of links to POSKY and MELJET models, and have found some that have no VC, others that have a VC that only has about 2 functioning buttons, one where the engines were "blacked out", several where gauges are blank, etc. I have spent countless hours looking at various sites and trying instructions on how/where to configure and place panel and gauge folders, files, etc. and am at my wit's end. This is my last ditch effort... is there a known B777 freeware add-on out there with a working VC and similar features of the default FSX aircraft? I have no desire to pay for PMDG, nor do I want or need that level of immersion. I am fine with the level of detail in doing starts from cold and dark cockpit in default FSX aircraft. Barring any good advice from the knowledgeable experts of AVSIM, I will just continue to use the dinosaur B747-400 for my long hauls, which would be a shame. Thanks in advance!
  8. Hi friends, I created a page called FSXmap, which you can see here. Its an interactive map with all 24000+ airports in FSX, with their runway data such as ILS, VASI and approach lights. Its plotted on top of Google maps. Here is a screenshot of what it looks like: You can also find a tutorial video here: I use it to plan the flights, and hopefully you may find it useful too.
  9. So I posted about this in an older topic about it last night. That older topic was from 02/2015. Back then members here appeared to be having little luck getting it connected and to work. I tried last night and after a few tenacious tries got it to work. So if you create a flight plan in FSX, with the App and with a simple .exe program for the PC, you can connect with the Fltplan App and get what I thought was going to be a simple "follow yourself along your route on your iPad". I tried it again today and have to say I was astounded at all you can do with this app after a learning curve. I have used the web site for my FSX flight planning since about 2010, so my learning curve was pretty short. Here is what it looks like on the iPad when the app is tracking your progress along your route. The Blue line is the route of your flight plan, the Green line is the app tracking your real time progress along your route. (these are all large images so you may need to click on them to see edge to edge, and there are more below so keep scrolling) But after creating my flight plan at today. Starting FSX and creating the same flight plan there. Alt-Tab back to my PC desktop, starting the FltPlanGo_FSX.exe program on my PC and telling it to connect to FSX, then Alt-Tab back to FSX, and finally starting the Fltplan Go app on my iPad, I selected the Map page in the app and there was the aircraft icon representing my aircraft, positioned at my departure airport. OK. So what? Follow the Green line on an iPad while you fly! What's so great about that? Well, messing around in the app here is what else I found" While flying, with the app you can access you departure and destination airports: Where you can do things like look at the current weather and terminal forecasts. Helps you know if you will need an instrument approach and gives you a good idea of which runway will be active. And you can also pull up your approach charts, and zoom in on them. Or pull up the airport diagram to guide your post landing taxi. Plus access many other airport features. This is how the iPad works with flying in the real world! But Wait! There's More! Look at this example of what else you can do with the route map! You can add real time weather elements to the moving map. In the map above I added weather radar, surface conditions (weather fronts), and winds aloft at my altitude. The winds and wind direction are shown as the colored arrows, and the app contains a color scale that translates the colors into wind speed brackets. And finally, just so you know it is actually following you in your FSX flight, look at this last iPad screen capture. The weather changed the active runway at my destination, so that forced me to divert from my plan near the end of my flight. In this image you can see how the line tracking my FSX flight (green line) separated from my original flight plan (blue line). The iPad was connected through the Fltplan Go app to my home wireless network. i.e. no cabling. The FltPlanGo_FSX.exe program on my PC connected FSX to the Fltplan Go app, evidently through the web site. It worked! And it provides a lot that I did not anticipate!
  10. Hi, How do I go about fixing the lighting on Taxi2gate's MUCL. I tried contacting them and never heard back.
  11. Any comments or reviews of the IRIS Simulations PILATUS PC-24 SVJ ?
  12. Hey, guys, I was hoping somebody could help me out. I was trying to do a flight to Bermuda from New York today in the Wilco Feelthere Embraer 190 payware aircraft (in Jet Blue's livery), and even after loading my aircraft with the flight plan into fsx, the flight plan never appears in the FMC of my aircraft, and if I try to enter the flight plan (KJFK-TXKF, which is the airport code for Bermuda's airport), I will get either of the following error messages: 1. Flight Plan is Invalid 2. Invalid Entry This is extremely frustrating, and the manual that came with my product does not clearly explain how to input flight plans into this aircraft. Are there any suggestions you guys have that may help? until I get assistance, I am going to be doing the flight in a different plane. Evan :wink:
  13. Hi, I have Taxi2Gate Mexico City International MMMX V2 FSX, I see SimMarket has Taxi2Gate MMMX MEXICO CITY XTREME... Are they the same, I no longer see MMMX V2 online?. Thanks
  14. Returning to FS and this reading up more on real flying to better understand what is being simulated. Last night was reading about effects of wind on take off and landing. Got me wondering if this is simulated in FSXSE?

    FSX Intel HD 3000

    I was pessimistic to fly with a payware aircraft, because I was afraid that my fsx will crash, get 0.1 fps and so on. But, after I gave it a try, well, now I gotta say, it is all urban legend saying that integrated graphics are no good for fsx. That is why, I am posting this thread to let everyone know,especially for those who want to fly but don't think their pc can handle it. My laptop's specs (its Sony VAIO from 2011) -Intel Core i3 2330M @ 2.20 GHZ -6GB DDR3 Ram (533mhz) -Intel HD Graphics 3000 -640GB HDD ----------- Things to do: Install ORBX Global base, + FreeMeshX (do not install the FTX Vector, it will decrease the fps significantly). Why to install the Global base? TRUST ME, it boosts the FPS, better than the FSX default scenery. (on the default I had 10-20 max fps with mid-low settings) . With the ORBX, I have 10-40 fps (depending the view, in the cockpit 8-25fps), outside, 18-50fps. In the graphics control panel , for best performance set in the 3D to performance, but later I tested it, to set it to quality lowers the fps by 5%, 10% tops, so I suggest it will be best to let it in-between,,, you can try them both. The settings with ORBX I have it on High. Also, I have used the 4GB patch, I'm not sure if it helps a lot. ---- If you need any help for setting some things up , let me know.
  16. Dear simmer,I am proud to announce that my freeware Terra Emergence Project final v1 for FSX/P3D is now available here: Download (2 Gb) Terra Emergence Project is a pack of ground replacement texture for FSX & P3D (Cities and villages are not affected by this texture pack.) IT can be use alone or on Global Orbx base pack (Don't change FTX regions) or GEX or other global product. A pack of trees is inclued for best color. Read carrefull the readme file before install. Visite my FB page or Youtube channel (see links in signature) for more medias. Enjoy ! Aimé
  17. Hi All, Major changes to the autogen have been made, the biggest you will notice is the file size. I have managed to rework the vector files and resolved some issue with autogen duplication causing a larger than usual file size. Many areas of vegetation across roads have been removed as well as some major reworking of the building autogen to remove some unusally sized autogen that appeared in a lot of areas. This versions is leaner and gives just as much depth as previous versions as well as tweaking the density to help with frame rate numbers. Head over to my recently revised website for more information about this product and feel free to send through any questions you have, which can be done on my website. Regards, NZScenery
  18. Hey guys, just a short and simple question about the FSL A320. As this is an expensive one I want to find out if I should wait or if the Bus is ready! In the FSLabs forum are tough a few bugs in discussion. Thank you very much!
  19. Hello ! I have been experiencing a kind of weird sound glitch for 10 days or so. Everything is OK until I use the ATC window and the radio. The ambient noises are (almost) muted, the voice on the radio is the only thing I can hear. No noise for some 30 sec / 1 minute while the sim runs perfectly fine except that, then all sounds come back as if nothing had ever happened! I am totally puzzled by this one : I have changed nothing in my config! If anyone has the slightest idea of what is going on, I’d appreciate it a lot! Thanks in advance. Here is the [sound] bit from my fsx.cfg [sOUND] AmbientUI=0 AmbientUIMusicVolume=-6.000000 PrimaryDevice={DEF00000-9C6D-47ED-AAF1-4DDA8F2B5C03} SOUND=1 SOUND_LOD=1 SOUND_QUALITY=2 UISound=1 VoiceDevice={DEF00002-9C6D-47ED-AAF1-4DDA8F2B5C03} SOUND_FADER1=0.500000 SOUND_FADER2=0.500000 SOUND_FADER3=0.500000 SOUND_FADER4=0.500000 AmbientUIMusic=FSX01
  20. In the last week or so I am having a problem getting ANY engines on the King Air (default & Milviz) to start. They will not start using CTL E nor will they start using the panel switches. Any ideas or suggestions? My Baron 58 starts ok, as do my other aircraft. I have not made any changes to the aircraft except for installing the latest beta release of the Milviz 350i. I have also tried uninstalling the 350i but that does not seem to make a difference. I have to admit I have not flown any King Air recently and may just have forgotten a switch or step in the engine start procedure. Thanks in advance, Bob.
  21. Dear friends, Whets wrong with the Portland International Airport? It's one of the main hubs in USA west coast, an ANG main base and yet I haven't seen any good payware or freeware scenery for FSX or P3D... Why no developer has made a good PDX airport? Any restriction due to the fact that it's an ANG base? Does anybody know if there's any developer working on it?
  22. My friends, A VERY, VERY serious question. How many of you would be willing to pay $60 for an updated Leonardo Maddog MD-80. Again, it's a very serious question. I can't entertain ANY questions, just answers to the single question. Thanks so very for your time.
  23. I recently had a couple crashes of the system... red screen and annoying sound. System totally crashed... I doubt it is overheating, because now and then I open AMD Overdrive and the CPU temperature is never higher then 45 degrees. Maybe too much stress on the GPU with the bufferpools=0 tweak? Or maybe it has something to do with the overclock I made (automatic overclock in BIOS 3.2ghz -> 3.84ghz) I should mention it ONLY happens in FSX now and then. I hope someone knows what this could be. Maybe go back to 3.6ghz or remove the bufferpools tweak? Thanks!

    Lighting system

    This is probably a stupid question, but why do the ALS lights not light up at night. I see a lot of them modeled but don't light up. Just the PAPI lights. Even a lot of 3rd party airports have great detailed lights but don't light up. Just curious if I'm missing a setting or something.
  25. My update to 1607 went smoothly yesterday...deferred for quite a while...has to reinstall DisplayLink driver as expected, Started testing various apps. Found out that the update deactivated FSX which was running fine on 1511. Tried a repair from the DVD but it fails every time with an InstallShield error. Tried an uninstall ...was able to uninstall Accel pack but FSX will not uninstall with a Fail to load a DLL for uninstall. Tried to reinstall Accel but it see FSX is deactivated and will not proceed. Anyone seen this issue...any fixes? I tried everything I could find on the Internet but nothing has worked.
