  1. Sky Sim MD11 in P3D V4 getting ready to depart to Le Bourget from Virtualcol's Bogota for an Air Hauler cargo flight dropping some cargo at Paris, then continuing on to the UK. Flew well to the South East before crossing the South Atlantic heading over to North Africa in order to pick up some favourable winds and avoid thunderstorm activity in the mid Atlantic. With all that cargo and fuel on board, I needed every inch of that runway and it was a struggle to make it up to the cruise alt of 39,000 feet lol.
  2. Been outta the loop for the last couple of months, doing a fresh install of p3d since some things are wonky - what is up with tomato shade/word on it/do you use it with URP and PTA and whatnot? Worth it? If I get it...what are the best presets out there for it too? thx.

    P3D V4 Missing textures

    Recently I bought p3d v4. I installed pmdg 737, 777 and QW 787. Today I started a flight and the textures were kind of orange missing. Help please. I don´t have installed ORBX
  4. Cloud shadows disappear when i zoom in on a view! P3D V4,3 Anyone have similar problem and has fixed i would appreciate a solution! Thanks!
  5. Hey. I did this livery up tonight after learning of Amazon's partnership with Atlas Air. This livery is for FSX/P3Dv3 using a licensed/legit copy of PMDG's 777F. I would like to receive feedback on what you think, so please fire away!! The airport is KMEM with GSX from FSDreamTeam in P3D. I'll post some more pics later.
  6. This is the support page for SXAD's KAMA for FSX, FSX SE, Prepar3d v2, v3 and v4. Currently this airport is available from Simmarket: http://secure.simmarket.com/sxairportdesign-rick-husband-amarillo-international-airport-fsx-p3d.phtml And Justflight: https://www.justflight.com/product/sxad-kama-amarillo-airport

    Rudder Problems P3D V4.3

    I have been tweaking around with my ingame P3D settings and my P3D.cfg to increase my FPS. However when i tested it with one of my PMDG aircrafts i had encountered that my rudder was extremely slower then usual inwhich i can barely turn on the ground when moving at a reasonable taxi speed. All other controls work such as turning, rotation etc. I have attempted to uninstall and reinstall but with no luck, i have tried to reset the controls to defaults but again with no luck, i have tried to calibrate my controller but yet again with no luck, all i had to do was slew (which is boring to do). Has anyone ever encountered a problem similar to this one? If so, please let me know or give me any suggestions
  8. Hello, some days ago I installed all PMDG v4 aircrafts new on my laptop. Scince this, the sim doesn't start anymore... It shows the main picture of P3D but when it tries to open the main menu, the picture is gone and there is nothing. The Task Manager tells me, the sim, SODE and courtal are running but it isn't shown in the Task Line too! I've reinstalled PMDG and AS16, I've even already reinstalled my P3D and the same problem... Under troubleshooting it shows me "Failed to connect". Please help me! Win 10 i7-5700HQ SSD128G GTX970
  9. Ok i have a big gripe with Chaseplane and that is every time you guys push out and update two things happen. 1) The app crashes, tells me it cant download or cant update something then CTD's. 2) I loose all my presets. Do you know how long it takes to setup presets? Im sick and tired of having to spend hours upon hours fixing presets or starting all over again. Take for example that last update. The program started updating then crashed telling me it couldn't update something and that it was going to disable this and that. In the meantime, i lost all my 737 777 presets. No presets at all. Thanks a lot. This seems to be a constant problem that needs to be resolved. I thought our presets were store on some server? Then why cant i retrieve that information and what does updating chaseplane do to those presets? Its not like im updating from v3 to v4. That was another fiasco in itself. I want to disable updates! I dont want auto updates happening and i want to ensure my presets are still there after a BLUNDEROUS UPDATE! -Mike
  10. AI traffic can be a FPS killer at even moderate settings. This situation has not changed much since FSX. Many of us like to decent amount of traffic around, but this finally becomes a tussle between volume and FPS. To help this situation I have written a program which automatically tries to manage the traffic. The logic is pretty simple, you give the program a target number of AI aircraft, by default 150. Every 60 seconds the program will check how many AI Aircraft are there and then it will delete AI Aircraft above this number. Aircraft farthest from your aircraft are deleted first, so traffic around you should remain largely unchanged. You can change the target number to your choice based upon your hardware. Traffic Settings within P3D: You should set the the traffic density in P3D to something which gives you decent traffic around you. For example I use MyTraffic, so I set the density to 35%, which I think reflects RW traffic. In my situation my FPS goes from ~12 to ~18 with this program in KJFK. How to use: Unzip the contents - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_5rZp8PTz0qcFVMWGo1bl9ENG8/edit?usp=sharing Start P3D, let it come up fully Start AirTrafficManager.exe "Check" the "Auto Optimize" check-box The first clean-up will happen 15 seconds after you check the check-box, and after 10-15 seconds of that you will notice your FPS increase. I have not programmed in VB.Net for ages, so if you are going to try this out then you are a beta-tester Notes: 1. This program runs separately from P3D so hopefully will not crash it. 2. If you get a message in the console saying unable to connect to P3D, please re-start AirTrafficManager. 3. Although the check for AI Aircraft is done every 60 seconds, the clean-up happens 15 seconds after the 60 seconds Requirements: 1. P3D v2.3 2. FSUIPC Acknowledgements: 1.

    Black Display's and stuck FMC

    If I fly with the PMDG 737-800 (P3D version) then all displays are sometimes black. Another time then the both FMC's completely stuck and the displays works correct. Another time, everything works fine. Is this a known problem? Martien Roelofs
  12. Hi Everyone! I've recently returned back home to my sim computer after about 2 months of living away. When I booted it up, I did my typical "update everything" flow and updated Windows 10, SODE (with C++ Update), FS2Crew 747 QOTSII, FSDreamTeam (Live Update), and Orbx Libraries. Basically everything I could think of that wasn't already updated since April 2018. I then bought the much anticipated QW787 and installed it. I went to start a flight the next day from IAH-ANC using the PMDG 737 and my frames seemed LOCKED at 15. My rig usually gets around 25-30 if not more, especially at a less difficult airport like FSDreamTeam IAH, or at the very least seems smooth. We are at a complete loss for what to do. So far I have uninstalled and reinstalled everything I updated, updated my NVIDIA drivers, checked and double checked all of the settings in the sim and in NVIDIA, made sure that the SSD, GPU, CPU, and Graphics Cards were all running correctly, checked to make sure the overclock was still configured, and even trashed and rebuilt the shaders and the .cfg file. At the moment I am re-downloading P3D just in case I need to wipe everything and start over. - WHAT HAS HAPPENED?! T SPECS: I7 7700k OC to 4.4ghz, GTX 1080, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD drive
  13. Hi All I've watched countless "settings" type videos and posts to try to optimize P3D V4, however no matter what I try, can't seem to get rid of micro-stutters I've even tried to put all sliders to the left and increase them one by one to find the underlying issue, but it's still there. The FPS counter can't seem to hold steady as it moves from 10 to 40 and back all the time. I have a G-SYNC monitor and have tried both V-SYNC on/off and locking the FPS to 30 but it has no effect. What I also find surprising is that moving all the sliders to the right doesn't have a massive impact on the max FPS I can get. My specs are below Intel i7 - 6700K @ 4.00 GHz 16.0 GB RAM GTX 980 Any ideas on what I could do to help make the FPS smoother? Is there something in Nvidia Inspector perhaps? Many thanks
  14. Hey guys so I encountered a weird issue I have never seen before. I loaded up P3D then to my disappointment, the aircraft at the gate with engines off etc, keeps inching forward. So i add breaks, and then it starts bouncing up and down. When you add throttle, it wont really do much , as if the wheels are locked, and using slew to go up into the air, its like the physics just died. I'm just testing out P3DV4 and I was super impressed until this annoying issue popped up. Ive tried addon aircraft, default aircrafts, addon scenery , default scenery, its all the same. As an added bonus I found out that I can fly aircraft during the day with no problem. But as soon as Dusk,night or dawn is set.. forget it 😕 Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    PilotWatch - Fly safely when AFK

    Perhaps it's not the best practice in terms of realism, but let's be honest; when flying in cruise we often tab out the game and watch Netflix, make dinner or wash some clothes. I bet most of you don't fancy ticking the option in the flight sim to hear sounds even when tabbed out, so you can engine roars on top of Netflix. So when will you know something fails? When you come back and your flight has respawned? As a small side project I've now created PilotWatch, it's a small program which communicates with the flight sim, and PMDG airplanes, to monitor for warnings on your flight. PilotWatch is meant to be activated once you go AFK, else you'll probably get spammed by all kinds of warnings before you get to cruise. Once an warning is detected, it'll play a sound and send you a notification. Disable the alarm by opening the program. The purpose of the program is not to encourage pilots to leave their seat for more than 30 minutes on VATSIM (according to Code of Conduct) or break similar rules on other networks. The tool is simply to give you an additional heads up if you're not currently actively monitoring your simulator. Warnings monitored 737: Fire, Master Caution, Anti-ice, Hydraulic, Doors, Engine, Overhead, Cond, Auto-pilot, Auto-throttle. 777: Master Caution, Master Warning Compatibility FlightWatch is made to work with Windows 10 and Prepar3D v.4.2. Theoretically you should be able to use earlier versions of Windows, but this is not tested, let me know if it works for you! The supported version of Prepar3D is absolute, you will not be able to use it on any other version. Due to the nature of 64-bit in P3D, It will require too much double-up work to make this compatible P3D v1-3 or FSX. I'll however look into the possibility to support 4.0 and up later on. Works with: PMDG NGX 737 and PMDG 777. Download Newest version: Beta 1 Install by placing the folder where you want, preferably outside Program Files folder. Important installation note! In order for FlightWatch to receive data, you must tell PMDG to broadcast it, and by default this is turned off. Go to your PMDG folder in P3D, then the plane you're going to use, and open Options.ini and add this line at the bottom, and save: [SDK] EnableDataBroadcast=1 Example where you find this file: C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\737NGX_Options.ini Disclaimer This is a very early version of the program, so I can't guarantee it'll cover all kind of warnings. If you do find bugs, crashes, or warnings which are not covered, let me know in the comments and I'll do my best to add them! Please help me test this! Once we get NGX perfected, I'll be easier for me to complete the other PMDG planes.
