  1. Lockheed Martin today sent us some news regarding Prepar3d and a video they just released. Here is what they had to say about the video; "Prepar3D® simulation software presents a virtual world that spans from the ocean depths to suborbital space. See how Prepar3D can be used for immersive, experiential learning in this trailer. Since launching the software in 2010 as an evolution of Microsoft ESP technology for professional training and academic learning, Lockheed Martin has expanded ground and maritime settings, added camera sensors and enhanced its multi-player capability for distributed training exercises. Details about Prepar3D are at www.prepar3d.com." .
  2. I'm having a slight problem with the turboprops on FS KBT's L-188. I find it very hard to taxi properly as the plane just shoots forward when I open the throttles even a little bit. There's a switch in the cockpit that has 2 positions: "Low RPM" and "High RPM". I tried the switch and in "Low RPM" mode it moves the mixture levers down to 1% (low / ground idle?) which should reduce the RPM a lot, but it has almost no effect whatsoever. Even after flipping the switch, opening the throttles a little bit makes the plane accelerate so much that it's difficult to control because I have to use the brakes all the time. Has anyone else had similar problems with this plane or a similar one? Does anyone know how to fix this? ~CK
  3. Here is the discussion topic for the interview with Lockheed Martin.
  4. Looks like Captain Sim now have their L-1011 compatble with P3D. Has anybody tried it? I have their FSX version and really love it.
  5. With the continuing advancement of P3D by Lockheed Martin, more flight simulation enthusiasts are experimenting with, if not adopting entirely, this flight simulator. However, there is considerable confusion over which third party products currently available can be used, without violating your EULA or other restrictions, within P3D. Questions such as: Does my existing End User License Agreement (EULA) allow me to use my add-on in P3D? If not, do I need to purchase another license to install it in P3D? Assuming my EULA allows me to, will my current product work in P3D? And there are many more. We recently have had some incidents within the forums that arose from lack of knowledge concerning products, EULA's and use within the P3D simulator. As a result, we have undertaken a survey of commercial providers about their EULA's and products for P3D. You can find the beginnnings of this here: http://forum.avsim.n...Pages/p3d_.html
  6. Just doing a few dipsey-doodles with my new Easter toy. This is the refurbished P-38 Lightning Red Bull edition, and is a blast to fly. Head on over to MilViz and check it out.
  7. EDIT: I have edited this to reflect a more balanced look at John's departure and the role of the larger Prepar3D team after a discussion this morning with another member from the Prepare3D team. TA John Nicol, the very public face behind Lockheed's Prepar3D flight simulator, is leaving Lockheed effective tomorrow. John informed us today that his two year contract with Lockheed concludes tomorrow and that he is off to take a short break before moving on to other projects, including his participation in the MAKERPLANE organization. John tells us that Martile Allen will be taking over his responsibilities. For those that do not know, John was part of a larger team getting Prepar3D from a Lockheed internal product, available to large scale defense customers, to that of a more "commercial" offering. By "commercial" we mean academics, flight schools, etc. We do NOT mean off-the-shelf products found in Best Buy and similar. John was also a participant in altering the pricing strategy leading to that "commercial" product. Questions will natually arise as to the future of Prepar3D within the flight simulation community. Does the loss of the evangelism and support for a more commercial product that John brought to the project mean a different Lockheed approach? Is there patience in the upper management of Lockheed to continue with a mainstream product? We'll be looking into those questions and more. AVSIM will be providing an interview with Lockheed Prepar3D team management in the coming week or two, addressing the questions we have regarding the future of the product and their outlook for it's success.
  8. As reported on the front page this morning: [imgleft]http://static.avsim.net/forum/uploads/62c6ab8e56ab122439a9de6687a84c6e.gif[/imgleft]Rob Randazzo of PMDG, in response to AVSIM's query regarding their position on their End User License Agreements (EULAs) for their products and use within Lockheed's P3D, provided AVSIM the following statement; "PMDG’s position is that the EULA is an industry established process designed to clearly define any limitations of a customer’s rights to use the license that they have purchased. The limitations placed inside PMDG’s EULAs are reached after careful review with our corporate counsel and take into consideration such things as: Microsoft’s EULA for FSX and/or FS2002. Lockheed Martin’s EULA for Prepar3d. Limitations as required by PMDG’s contract with Boeing. Limitations as required by PMDG’s contracts with other licensors. Limitations as required by PMDG’s agreements with contributing airlines, MROs and support centers. Limitations as required by PMDG’s corporate liability insurer. Limitations as required by PMDG’s business model. Given the subtext of the discussion, I think your broader question is: “Why does PMDG specifically disallow use of our products on the Prepar3d platform?” The decision to limit the EULA on PMDG’s products to prevent their use in Prepar3d has everything to do with our contract with Boeing, our insurance carrier and our business model. In the context of the first two items, the decision involves the process of limiting PMDG’s liability in the face of legal action related to an accident outcome, or a violation of our contracts with the described parties who support the development of our products. Those things can be changed however and I suspect that they will change once we have had a chance to adequately evaluate that outcome. The third item is of larger concern to PMDG however as it relates to our basic concern to protect the investment our customers make in our products. We have not seen a commitment by Lockheed Martin to support the “casual simmer” beyond providing methods for users to obtain a license for Prepar3d through “wink and nudge” means. Lockheed Martin has been very careful not to enter the retail entertainment market with Prepar3d and has some very good reasons for not doing so. Without taking a step to enter the retail entertainment simulator market, Lockheed Martin has (in the opinion of PMDG and our counsel) left the door open so that they could, at any time change direction and enforce the terms of the EULA on Prepar3d thus requiring all Prepar3d users to prove compliance with their EULA. When this happens, the vast majority of simmers currently exploring Prepar3d as an alternative platform will be left without a valid license or usage rights because they do not meet the very limited band of allowable users as defined by the Lockheed Martin EULA. We prefer that our customers not be left having made an investment in a PMDG product only to lose the ability to use that product because they are using it on a platform for which they don’t have clear usage rights for Prepar3d. This is a mess that we are hoping to see sorted out, but when we pointed this topic out, Lockheed Martin made it very clear that they were not interested in having a discussion with us regarding customer rights. If we are to market our products to the entertainment simulation community as being compatible with Prepar3d, I feel that PMDG has a responsibility to make sure users are not asked to compromise their integrity in order to use the product we sell them. Again, in the opinion of PMDG and our counsel’s office, we still see a number of avenues in which Lockheed Martin has itself painted into a corner from which it cannot clearly support the non-commercial/non-education consumer. When these very important questions are cleared up, we will be happy to provide our customers with the flexibility to use Prepar3d as a simming platform." You can also see the comparision table of vendors and EULA's here.
  9. Lockheed today issued a statement to AVSIM regarding P3D which we think all simmers will find interesting. You can find the article on the front page.
  10. Hi all, I've just downloaded the FS KBT L-188 Electra for FSX because I want to try out a few old props/turbo-props, and I have to say, despite the panel being a bit dated/an acquired taste, it isn't bad, and considering there are no payware L-188 offerings I'm aware of, it's probably the best too. ^_^ I like to do a bit of tweaking every time I get a new plane to the hangar, and since I am now a bit more of a serious simmer, like to have check-lists too. I've had a hunt for some check-lists and surprisingly found nothing, apart from this: http://buffaloairway...raft-Checklists , which is, of course, a dead link! -_- Additionally, although as of yet I haven't had the chance to test it properly, I notice there is no beacon light on it. Is this accurate? Off the top of my head there is a panel switch for the beacon... correct me if I'm wrong. But if I am is that accurate? I know not many people seem to have the Electra - seems to have suffered the same fate as in real life :rolleyes: but it'd be great to get any kind of feed back on this. If you haven't at least tried it, and like turbo's of that era (of which there aren't many), then do! Many thanks in advance.
