  1. Hi boys! I'm a new member, a passionate simmer who read your always interesting posts since he was a child. First of all, my congratulations for the wonderful site. I'd like to know if you would have some suggestions on which payware to choose: I was looking for a six-seats well simulated aircraft (preferably on the level of PMDG, A2A, etc.) with modern avionics, like G1000 or something similar. Single, twin or multi engines.. Pistons, turboprops, turbofans... All these options could be good for me. Any advice? Thanks to all in advance.
  2. Hey guys, I built a home cockpit designed to be as versatile as possible. I tend to find myself most interested when I am learning different planes. I only really started flight simming back in March but I have got to know the PMDG737, A2A C182, and PMDG747. I am excited about the maddog md80 plus the Aerosoft CRJ and Majestic DQ400 are on my short list. I have loads of buttons and switches for my simulator which is great but the FMC/CDU/FMS (sorry I don't know the correct terminology for each plane) seems like it's going to be a problem when transitioning from the none PMDG planes. The easy solution right now for PMDG is the VRInsight iPad apps and an iPad mini but does anyone have any ideas for other aircraft? I am okay with using a pop-up window to see the FMC and type in commands as I have a large monitor right in my face but running at 30hz trying to use the mouse with the stutter is nauseating at times and quite frustrating. Plus I have some motion and vibration in my sim so it's tough to mouse click when things are really going. I have a small wireless TV remote style keyboard on the front of my yoke that I can type with but that would still leave me with quite a few buttons to map outside of the letters on the FMC. I looked into the CDU II from VRinsight but the solution seems quite complex and not that great. However; I could be wrong since I have found almost no tutorials or forum posts of people actually using this method. Although there is one on this forum with someone who seemingly got it to work on the Majestic. All in all it seems little over the top. I am just searching for some creative ideas that maybe people have come up with for creating more of a universal FMC. I use P3Dv4.1 so that's why I am posting here. If you have any solutions or ideas let me know. Cheers, Brian
  3. As per the title, the JF VC-10 is now on sale, so for those of you who wanted the classic British quad T-Tailer for FSX and P3D, the wait is over. Well, sort of, this is the Type 1101 BOAC variant, but two expansion packs are also on the way apparently, one of which 'pros' it up a bit with more systems simulation to make it a 'study sim' although to be fair, quite a lot of stuff is simulated on this initial release; another expansion will add the Super variant and RAF Tanker and transport versions. Apparently there will be a discount on the price of those expansions for those who buy this initial version, so if you wanted the pro version, there's no real reason not to stump up the cash for this one and tart it up later on since the price will be the same as waiting for the full on version. Works in FSX and FSX-SE and all versions of P3D
  4. For users considering P3Dv4.1, I can confirm that LINDA 3.0.3 is compatible when used with FSUIPC 5.121b and compatible aircraft. A2A C172 and C182 owners should note that there is an issue with the steering tiller not working on the ground. Other aircraft tested (ie. default B58 and F35A and PMDG737NGX) work fine. Please report any issues with LINDA here.
  5. My impression, so far, is that the juice isn't worth the squeeze...especially with my GTX970. I gave it a try at the new Miami and my two thoughts were: Well, I see a little difference...airplanes naturally lit up by the lights at the stands. Bad performance (again, GTX970). My frames went from mid 20s to 6. I think that dynamic lighting is sorely needed in the sim but not at the cost of ruining performance which, it seems, dynamic ramp lights do. What do you guys think?
  6. Hello gentlemen. Wanted to share with you progress on the modeling front for this project. It's been 7 month now of ongoing passionate labor, Real life diversions resulting in a project freeze then reignited passion and countless hours of needless obsession about small details. a 4th redo for the exterior model was in order ! The Honda is now textured and exported in P3D! Please have a look at these screen grabs and let me know your feedback. Keeping in mind that this is a WIP and will be improved upon religiously.. 2017-12-10_1-11-6-15 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr 2017-12-10_1-5-43-268 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr 2017-12-10_1-12-47-982 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr 2017-12-10_1-17-13-299 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr 2017-12-6_1-40-12-316 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr 2017-12-10_1-17-23-521 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr 2017-12-10_1-17-56-986 by marwangharib3 gharib, on Flickr Marwan Gharib
  7. Hello, it may seem inappropriate but I wanted to buy PTA v2.5 from the website but apparently I am getting an error saying the Payment/Transaction was not honored. Now, in banking terms, that is as good as a transaction being declined. So could you mind telling me the name of Banks in India that can allow me to make the purchase. Sorry, I am a bit confused regarding this as I am facing a similar situation with other online Vendors as well.
  8. Was very recently informed by a fellow pilot about VMRGenerator. Consequently downloaded latest version (8.3), and did run it a couple of times until getting most of the errors or missing information fixed. My main issue remains about the VMRGenerator.log... I am running P3Dv4.1, and have quite an extensive simobjects.cfg file on board. Well, a huge pile of aircrafts so far are still missing atc_parking_codes entries, which I can fix slowly but surely. However, my main concern is about P3D's stock aircrafts, where I am finding strange comments into the log, for instance F:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\SimObjects\Airplanes\beech_baron_58\aircraft.cfg does not contain a [fltsim.x] section Ignored: Line Atc_model= is missing in F:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\SimObjects\Airplanes\beech_baron_58\aircraft.cfg F:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D

the same. There are [fltsim.0] and up in each aircraft.cfg files. The atc_model entries do comply with the ICAO documentation available on line (BE58, B350, A321, DH8A, F14, F15, F16) for some I already did check, and the remaining stock aircrafts are being checked. But why these 2 messages for each stock aircraft, when some are fully compliants, and others non-compliants on atc_model only? Thank you for your comprehension and assistance. Blue skies
  9. Hi everyone. Here's a bit of a silly question, but where can I look to determine the version # of my PC-12? Many thanks to any patient soul willing to point it out. :-)
  10. Hello fellow aviators, Yesterday I had to reinstall my P3DV4 due to a issue with windows update, this topic is not about that update. I've reinstalled IVAO and the MTL with it, however, when I add the following lines to the simobjects.cfg P3D crashes and startup with a ntdll.dll error: [Entry.10] Title=IVAO MTL Path=SimObjects\IVAO_MTL Required=True Active=True Does anyone know how to solve this issue? Regards, Erik Schlijper
  11. Hi Guys, I am wondering if anyone is having issues taking screenshots over the the sim in windowed mode? I seem to have an issue with this every time i use GYAZO or even using the snipping tool. Every time I highlight the region I want to take a picture of, the sims window flickers. I am not sure but, I think it might be an issue with lighting. When i look at any shadow or reflection this issue seems to happen. Please inform if anybody has encountered this? Thanks!
  12. Today I enjoyed my first route that I loved in the days since I started with FSII from Sublogic. I flew from Midway, IL, to Springfield, IL at night. I loved flying that route in FSII and I even put a little hack in that program to fly it faster than the default Piper they used. I found if you went into settings and put a negative value for flaps, the Piper could haul blank at over 250 mph. One of my many hacks over the years to improve the DOS based games performance. I have some screenshots of that flight posted today in the screenshots forum. John
  13. Hi pilots, currently I am looking for an upgrade of my current hardware for flightsimming in P3d 4.1. At the moment I am running an Mini-ITX system with GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boos, Xeon® Prozessor E3-1230V3, and 8GB RAM on one 23" monitor (1980*1440px). I do not want to have a high end system. Mostly I am flying the PMDG 737/777 with FTX Global/Vector. Additionally i am using airports like the complex of the UK2000 group. Now I want to identify the bottle neck: Should I upgrade the graphic card or the CPU? If graphic card, I have to check if the card fits in Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced (Mini-ITX). Do you have any recommendations? This would be very helpful for me! Thak you very much in advance! Best regards
  14. So I have been flying in and out of Japan with a lot of flights, but so far I only own a couple of sceneries that allow me to do so, and those are Narita International Airport and Fukushima Airport by Wing Creation Inc., and Kansai International Airport by Aerosim. But I haven't seen any other scenery for japan, so I was wondering if there is more to be found? And I am not just looking for airports but also mesh and textures for the surounding scenery. I don't mind if it is payware or freeware, all I want is that it can be ported into P3Dv4 and that it is of decent quality
  15. Hello guys, I guess this question has been asked many times before but I can't find it in the forums anymore. My question is whether there is an option to upgrade any PMDG product from FSX to P3D(v4) or is the only way to buy it full price? Thank you in advance :)
  16. Love shedding dusk colors and a bit of haze over my photoreal scenery.... John
  17. Hi, You have much options in Finn MultiMaps which allows for real-time flying in Google Maps, Bing Maps Yandex Maps and many more. You can find full information here
  18. Enjoying the Commander at night. My ex-boss, who I worked with designing Best Western's Website, was a pilot and he flew over Illinois at night. He had an electronic failure and had to land totally blind. Obviously he made it, otherwise he would not have been able to share the story. He quit flying after that. Wonder why? Many pilots say nighttime landings are just the worst, but I enjoyed mine when I flew with a friend in his Cessna.
  19. I just installed this amazing scenery just released. It is freeware. FS video of scenery Real approach YouTube page of airfield owner What a life !
  20. Why do I love flying out of California? In such a short distance, you cover such a variety of terrain, from farmland to alpine terrain, then to desert. You'll spot the glacier-carved canyon of Yosemite. I love the C550 because of its autopilot, arguably the best of all of Carenado's aircraft. I like it because it uses pitch to hold indicated airspeed, then locks on to the preselected altitude. Better than autothrottles in my opinion. Also the C550 is a great hand flyer, if there is one jet to get, the C550 is the one. John
  21. I have started to have issues when starting P3D up, and I don't know if it warrants a complete reinstall... I start up P3D and on the scenario page the aircraft preview doesn't show up and the default airport is shown as Birmingham without anything surrounding it on the map. When I try and change the airport, it shows only 6 airports to choose from. Also when I choose an aircraft and exit back to the scenarios page, the sim crashes. Any help would be much appreciated.
  22. Is my memory foggy, or did Carenado just RAISE the price on all their aircraft in late November? I may be wrong about that, but some of these planes look more expensive than they did last week....
