  1. 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.
  2. As I had to reinstall FSX a few weeks ago I "lost" the sibwings an2. Unfortunately I had no backup. The support is not reacting for emails (I tried it 2 days ago), the forum is dead and they have no download for it on there homepage. Do you guys have an idea for getting it back in the air? It is a great aircraft (even tough the devs are very careless) Thanks!

    QualityWings 757 QWPAS

    The QW 757 is amazing, and another feature I love to point out are the cabin announcements. Issue is, I can't hear them. I have the sound files, have SP1 and 2 installed, have everything necessary. Why can't I hear them? It said itself on the website it was all automatic.
  4. 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.
  5. 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...
  7. 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
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. So yesterday I landed in vrmm, weather was bad untill about 2000 feet. landed whatever easy. but now 24 hours later after just now turning pc on and attempting to fly back to dubai. My textures are grey, black and green. at first I was using free ware so I disabled it and it still happened. In the cockpit, three out of 6 screens load and 3 are just black but if I go out of the cockpit and come back in its all greyed out So I decided to load at dubai to see if my entire sim is fubar, but it worked normally. So I decided to load with out activesky and it still wouldnt work. I thought maybe my virtual memory was getting hogged up by the bad weather thats currently going on but still same issue. Im not sure why now considering yesterday everything was perfect. Edit, just tried it at KJFK fs dreamteam and sim worked perfectly, just seems to be this airport...
  11. 'bout for FS9 as well! Here's the link...pretty amazing.... Wow...certainly is payware quality...and the surrounding countryside as well... Go and get 'er....(for FS9, too!)
  12. Hi guys, I'm having some problems with FSX that I can't sort out. I need some help. I have fixed some but these I can't. 1. When flying, the scenery seem to have an over resolution, with tiny little dots moving around. The sky sometimes has various tones of light blue in stripes across the sky. In the VC in some planes it's difficult to read labels. Also some planes appear ghost like. 2. Helicopters don't have power to fly. They can just hover a few feet and don't really fly. Add on ones, don't start after the initial stage. Payware planes, only the recently bought ones seem ok. Pmdg do work ok as well as some others. Older ones don't start correctly. I had a bit of a crash sometime ago, but everything went back to normal, or so it seemed at least at the time. 3. When I try to re install payware, because they're older than a year the licence key does not work. Do I have to buy the same planes, again, from Fs shops? I'm in a bit of a "flat spin" if you know what I mean. Need some help. Thanks a million in advance. JGoncalves
  13. Hi All, I recently noticed a sudden change at EGGP which I use regularly, in that the Runway lights are out of alignment with the actual runway - see pic.I can't seem to find any other occurrences, but has anyone experinced this? I have ORBX, REX sceneries and run the Navaids installer. Thanks Nige
  14. Not sure if everyone saw this, but I believe some of the streaming will be of flying in different FSX aircraft, as well as interviews with celebrities such as the Tuskegee Airmen, real life Concorde pilots, current Airbus pilots as well as Air Force personnel.
  15. Is there a way to change the background from the MS default, so that it blends? I've looked at ADE but the background doesn't show. Thanking you in advance Geoff Cox
  16. i am looking through my inspector settings. Should I eaither do mixed sampling 8x or multi sampling 8x? Thanks!
  17. Hi. I always fly full screen mode. But suddenly FSX refuses to go into Full Screen, either by alt-tab or views-full screen. I have Maximised=1 under [MAIN] in .cfg but returns to 0 on exit. Any ideas anyone??? Martin Stacey.
  18. Aircraft PMDG 7772LR About 2.5 hours out in the dark of the night, halfway to PHNL the sound all the sudden went mute. When I made my way to the desk top the Menu Bar said (Not Responding) so I clicked on the panel to see if it paused but the PC was already froze up and I had to END TASK to close it. It has happened in daytime flights as well. This happen even with my Ifly 747 when attempting to do USA to Europe/.Asia flights over water. I can fly trans-cons without an issue with my 737 747 and even the 777. It always happens over water. Does anyone have a clue as to what is happening. I really want to do a long range flight with this bird. Merry Christmas Randy
  19. Hi everyone, I am a total Newbie to Avsim and would be extremely grateful if any Gurus out there could help me with an issue that has been stressing me for ages. No matter what I try I am unable to get any display setting higher that 1920x1080x16 in the FSX customise settings panel. I find this odd as I thought my components although old(ish) would be decent enough to run at 1920x1080x32. I have provided the following info from Speccy and added in the ATI driver details. If anyone could assist that would be fab thanks.

    Frozen Lakes

    I am experiencing an unusual scenery problem which I have yet to stumble on a resolution. Hopefully, someone here has had simimlar problems and have successfully resolved them, or perhaps can use their knowledge of FSX and it's addons to determine a possible cause. My smaller inland lakes appear to be frozen over, even in the middle of the hottest summer days. See the attached picture. I am using: FSX + Acceleration GEX North America v2.10 UTX Canada v2.0 UTX USA v2.0 REX4 Texture Direct 4.6.2016.0622 Active Sky Next 1.0.6011.15407 Build 6011 DX10 Scenery Fixer v2.11 Any thoughts on how I an get my smaller lakes to look less like glaciers or icepacks?
  21. I installed an rxpGNS430 into the Carenado E50P Phenom 100 to use for the GPS source and to aid in loading flight plans etc. Works great. Now I am trying to substitute a toggle to active the pop up rxpGNS. The PFD on the E50P has a toggle hotspot (gauge03 in the Vcockpit01 window) at the Prodigy logo that toggles a window with the 2d PFD. I never us that so I want to have that hotspot toggle the rxpGNS (Window08) but I'm running out of altitude & airspeed in my attempts. I have a feeling the secret is in the K:PANEL_ID_TOGGLE, but it would take me a while to get smart enough about it to know. Here is the relevant panel.cfg sections and the xml for the ToggleCARG1000 PFD gauge. Any help appreciated! //-------------------------------------------------------- [Vcockpit01] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=512,512 visible=0 pixel_size=1024,1024 texture=$Panel_1 gauge00=EMB500_G1000!G1000_configEMBP100, 0, 0, 1, 1 gauge01=GAUGEEMB500!Gauge_CLOCK_DIG, 0, 0, 1, 1 gauge02=EMB500_G1000!G1000_PFDEMBP100VC, 1, 4, 512, 350 gauge03=EMB500CAR!ToggleCARG1000, 64, 0, 256, 32 gauge04=Synch_GPS_NAV!Synch_GPS_NAV, 0, 0, 1, 1 [Window08] window_pos=0.739583,0.000000 window_size=0.260417,0.194444 visible=1 ident=15431 zorder=99 gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS430,0,0,100,100 _____________________________________________________________________ <Gauge Name="ToggleCARG1000" Version="1.0"> <Image Name="iconpanel_background.bmp"/> <Mouse> <Area Left="0" Top="0" Width="30" Height="30"> <Cursor Type="Hand" /> <Click>0 (>K:PANEL_ID_TOGGLE) </Click> </Area> </Mouse> </Gauge>
  22. I have Eaglesoft Citation X 2.0 in FSX, on a Windows 8.1 computer that is way above the required specs. It seems the aircraft works flawlessly at random times after taking 20 minutes plus to load. otherwise it wont load in FSX. I have read through what people have said, and have excluded it from my virus/firewall program. but there is no change. With eaglesoft not supporting Windows 8, anyone have any ideas?

    VNAV Bind

    Is there anyway to bind VNAV switch? I looked through all the controls and I didn't find it. Can you help guys?
  24. Hey guys, I'm having a bit of trouble with corrupt textures that aren't matching the terrain with the airport at KBFI Boeing Field in FSX Acceleration. I've got ORBX FTX Global, Vector, PNW scenery, and their Central Rockies. I'm running Toposim USA mesh, and I arrange my scenery library with Scenery Config Editor, latest version. I've rearranged the library many, many times with different combinations of scenery library inserts, and changing the order of library items. Still, no difference. ORBX has so many topics and guides on where to place their products in the library, yet one guide says one arrangement, then another says different. Anyway, I'm grateful for any help in helping me fix these scenery anomalies. Thanks!
  25. My current system specs are AMD Vishera 4.2 GHZ CPU not overclocked 8gb Ram EVGA 970 GTX GPU 750 watt Corsica PSU not overclocked. If I install any of the ORBX products into FSX and FSXSE will I see a loss of smoothness and FPS. I currently with T2G KSEA and PMDG 777 and WOI at 50% get 25FPS/ Thanks Randy Smith
