  1. Hey guys, I've been using chaseplane in p3d v3 with no issues for a while now. Just upgraded to p3d v4, and I can't get chaseplane to work. Chaseplane connects to trackir with no issues (I see FSFX in trackir, so the program is being detected), but once in the sim, there's no tracking. I'm using v0.2.66 alpha exp. I also still have p3d v3 installed. I removed cameras.cfg from the p3d v4 folder in appdata and restarted the sim. I also reinstalled simconnect. Anything else I can try? D

    flytampa toronto

    I'm having trouble adding my flytampa Toronto into p3dv4. does anyone have any tips? thanks
  3. 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.
  4. This has been happening for a while whenever i am around FL300 or above i always seem to notice blacked out aswell as some messy and out of order terrain textures just scattered around with others being loaded in correctly (see link to photo below) I have never found a solution to it, i do have most global ORBX products since i think this could be the issue but i do not know. Has anyone ever came across anything similar to this problem?
  5. Hi When I want to load a scenario, P3dV4 dont show files that I saved in Prepar3D v4 Files directory it show only files from ..\Prepar3D v4\Scenarios. Someone had this issuse ? Thanks in advance Pierre

    Just some randoms

    Hello gents, Been a long time since i posted here so decided to put in some random shots from very different flights.It struck me how far we've come in the world of flightsimming.Could not have thought this would happen a couple of years ago. Hope you enjoyed them! Regards, Steven
  7. We had some beautiful days. But I wasn't a dutchey if I couldn't complain as well.. it makes flying boring, and sitting outside is also a hubby so yeah. But finalemente! Some "nice"Dutch weather, and the power of true earth NL in one picture at higher flight level
  8. As I managed to get some money for my birthday i fell in need of a turboprop regional carrier that was operated by at least 3 european/american companies. I have a budget of 60 european pesos(aka €)but I still am in doubt. I want a detailed aircraft that has an FMS and that is fun to fly around. Was thinking about carenado's F50 but i'm not sure. Any ideas out there? Best wishes, Charly
  9. HI all SO, after some hassle installing, and me even using team viewer at friends to manage my pc and downloads at home, we are ready to discover my country! I made a nice flight from EHMZ (Middelburg) to Groningen, Using VOR stations, as well as just some random GPS points to enjoy the scenery a tad better (never fly over Amsterdam the way I did!) It are quite a few pictures in the album! but I picked the "best" one.. I hope. Enjoy! Here we are, Henk en Sarah. EHMZ. NO idea what they did there. It was a really bad day weather wise, so I hope they didnt go to the beach. Middleburg is nice, so lets say they went for an expensive hamburger. Do you see, how beautiful the airport from NL2000 lies in between the fields, said Sarah to Henk?" They were well aware they are in a simulator, but it didn't matter, they have had hamburgers! After a short take off roll, off they were. With on the left side you can see Vlissinge harbour And the Middelburg appeared, with that amazing Hamburger restaurant ( I should have gone for sushi roll, thought Sarah, so I could have said > I want to make a short take off shushi roll please) And there we have it, said Sarah to henk, The Oosterscheldekering. 9 kilometers long, finished in 1986 due to ... yes yes I know, said henk. you *** know it all After a short silence, Sarah yelled LOOKKK< Rotterdam, almost the whole city center was demolished during WWII. And it is still being rebuild. They give names to everything, you know? WHorewalker for a bridge, Buy Gutter for a shopping street. Lovely people they are! SO Henk took out his drone, flew it in front of the airplane (while Sarah paused their lives for a few seconds, to make this shot. Rotterdam airport (they didn't want to load NL2000 for that one. didn't matter either!) Some where in between, they noticed a distinc lack of Alberth Heijn Supermarkets, but hey, Jumbo was very present As they flew towards Amsterdam, One of the most precise build cities in their opinions, but still with a lot of history. "Did you know" said sarah "that it was already inhabited by the Romans 2000 years ago! What was the city called again? Ohyeah. Alphen aan de Rijn And there she is. "I really hate those people, who think that Amsterdam is the Netherlands, or worse.. that people don't even know the Netherlands but know AMsterdam."said Sarah "Yes yes, I know, I agree, utrecht is also very beautiful" "We should have flown there, would make more sense" "Yupp, but hey, we don't decide about our lives here, he added it to the flightplan of de fault GPS.. and yeah, it sucks to reprogram.. so tja" As the flew over the bosbaan, the place for rowers (on of the most popualr student sports!) they looked behind, to see how beautiful fly tampa's EHAM fitted into the rest. And there we have it kids! That drone does do miracles (even though the cloud shadows disappeared for Henk quite often.. a bug in their Life Engine he guessed. You can see how beautiful the Rijksmuseum is! And the vondelpark Speaking of kids! The green ship. Nemo! The place for young scientists, playful minds.. or both to explore! No, it doesn't float! IJmuiden yelledHenk! Yes yes dear, I know you hate it, when you fly over it.. it means you'll land on the Polderbaan. 18R.. and that means.. long taxi It is also the gate to the Noordzee via het Noorzeekanaal. But they only cared about the skies As they flew towards Den helder. next point on that stupid GPS of theirs, they flew over Zaanstad. The city where Mister Albert Heijn invented "Put it in a Zakje" or did he? And there we have it, Den Helder. With Texel right after it. It actually is really big yo, 170 square KM yo'all..., Texel, you have busses, !! And it was already inhabited around 8000 v CHr And there comes Ameland already, while flying over "HAHAHAH COCKSDROP" "yes Sarah,.. yes..." said Henk. "I'm more worried about those clouds that Active SKy puts there, I think we will move to leeuwarden. " "and on our right side.. we see Harlingen. The harbour for the boat to Ameland Again,.. that Drone though And there it is.. Leeuwarden! The Fries are proud people. and understandable. They have their own official accent and... well, yeah, they sued to be able to ice skate. And that was about it I guess? Leeuwarden is the city of Culture for this year.. They don't get it either but they have a history since the Roman time. province is beautiful This is where Henk and Sarah life (actually.. only Sarah ;))! I won't tell you where, but it is there! (so well done ORBX thought Sarah!) Let's go to groningen. From the South East, while flying over 'NORG" you can see the beautiful NL2000 airport with Eelde next to it, and Groningen! A beauitful city. Really worth it! And then.. everyone turned their lights on.. Really sudden. I guess they're linked or something -thought Sarah Last turn from downwind to Final! "FLying over Foxhol and another Polder! We need those dry lands yo! We need them munch" "yes Henk! you are too old to be cool!" One last drone shot. Established! Eelde and groningen on the right.. so yeah, we actually made a turn So close!! And there we are! Not sure where thay green house comes from! But it looks legit Thanks you all for watching this many pictures.. I'm truly sorry

  11. Hello, everyone! Today a little smoke over the Skagit
  12. HI all Well, my first screenshot post. I'm still trying to get back into flying (time wise, setting up routine etc) but this was a short hop from EHAM to EHGG Well well. Some dark clouds are coming, typical Netherlands Oh, wait, what, there they are already... Hurry hurry. I love the drama in this shot Lining up 09. Advancing to 40%...focus..... oh, hey, look, the textures here really look like the old runway > DONT GET DISTRACTED PILOT! hmm, not sure about the clouds behind me. what do you guys think? Anyway, off we go.. Forgot to do the after takeoff checklist.. as always FL150.. oohh, sso ssoo fluffy I'm gonna die! Hold your breath, hold your nose, back into the clouds (1 minute cruise!) Land ahoy captain! Is that Light I see? Or are my eyes just so beautiful? OKay, so Groningen actually has nice weather.. how typical. These kind of moments I ask myself.. aren't you a little young to be a pilot > yes.. yes I am Practicing RNAV! (now everyone will look at everything and tell me what I set wrong.. if anything? :P Save on the ground! ooh, such nice skies! ( I will screenshot during landing more, I promise :P That Is what we went through. thanks REX and AS16 for showing that off! Cheers for reading and looking guys!
  13. Hello guys. I just installed Prepar3d v4.2. A clean installation. So this problem occur when i installed Reshade into P3Dv4. I have no addons installed. Only FTXGlobal install. Before installing FTXGlobal, i tried with reshade its still the same. I kept on getting "Loading Terrain Data" stuck at 6%. Doing a fresh resinstall fix it but i really wwanna use Reshade to enhance my graphics. Any idea how to solve this? Reshade version 3.1
  14. I finally bought Sky Force to use with Active Sky. I installed everything correctly and turned off the weather engine in Sky Force. I load AS first, load in my flight plan, and then SF. I've noticed that the weather in the few flights I did was slightly off so I was wondering if there are recommended settings that I need to make sure are on or off within either application to ensure things are running correctly. For example, flying out of IAD on Saturday called for rain, overcast skies and 3 mile visibility. I had no rain, good visibility and broken clouds. Flying into JFK a day earlier, I had gusty winds coming out of the opposite direction that the METAR was telling me. I was supposed to have low visibility and rain but I didn't get this. My guess is that there is something conflicting between the two but I can't figure out what. Any ideas? Thanks!
  15. I have seen a bunch of contradicting information and was hoping someone in here can help clear up a few questions regarding Ultimate Traffic 2 and Ultimate Traffic Live. There are a bunch of threads on this so I was hoping to condense it into one to answer a few things I was uncertain of. Thanks! 1) What is the difference between UT2 and UTL? 2) Are either compatible with V4? - If so, is it an easy install with an installer, or is it a manual process that requires knowledge of coding, files, etc.? 3) Can you run either while online and still see the AI traffic while on Vatsim or Pilotedge? - is there anything out there that allows you to see AI online if UT cannot? 4) Do either of these require any other software to populate airports and see liveries, particularly at high end payware airports (Flightbeam, Imaginesim, etc.)? Thanks!

    Dual GTN 650s

    Has anyone successfully put Dual 650s into the A36? Restul?
  17. I got all the ReShade and PTA, URP and P3D issues worked out with the help of the wonderful AVSIM forums. Been playing around with peoples presets, and I like all of varying degrees...but having trouble settling in on one. So, take a look at the pics, and lmk what you like best! The presets are from either AviationLads (, Pilot Pete (, or the FlightBeam Visual Pack ( In all of the presets I have my settings the same in P3D and am getting a solid 30-50fps on the ground with PMDG aircraft at FSDT JFK, and 40-60fps in the air. I have fps locked to 65 in the nVidia inspector tool. I can share my settings if you want. FlightBeam Preset Aviation Lads Cold Season preset Pilot Pete: My thoughts are that Aviation Lads and FlightBeam are the top contenders. Pilot Pete is good but a bit bland for me, although it looks much better in his pics I think thats cause he has tons of addon scenery like ORBX, etc, and does a lot of VFR low flying. LMK what you think! Also, if any of you know the settings to reduce the brightness on the sun hitting the aircraft without turning down overall sim brightness...lmk too :) Have a great rest of the weekend!
  18. It's a rainy day down here in Georgia, so I thought I take a quick flight from my home airport over to Augusta. Used the Alabeo PA31 Chiefton 350 with Flight1s G500/600. Really nice avionics package. I'm hoping more developers will incorporate the set into their aircraft.
  19. I am trying to install ReShade, and when I install it (following the youtube tutorial by Pilot Pete (member on here) and then try to start P3D, P3D gets stuck on the "Terrain Loading 6%" forever. If I go to the P3D folder, there are three new "dgxi" files that are installed when I install ReShade. If I delete them, P3D starts fine and works, but I am not sure if that then renders ReShade useless? Also, the screenshot button for reshade is PRINT SCR? Does this mean i need to paste it into something to work, or does it save somewhere? Thanks!
  20. I got the WX weather radar the other day...So, does that mean I have to uninstall the Lear and the 441, and reinstall them with the WX config versions? As yet, I do not have the GTN750. SO... when I do get the GTN750, will I have to again uninstall the Lear and 441 and find the config version for the WX and GTN750 combination? Looking at the installation of the WX radar, it runs off during install and looks for appropriate aircraft. I notice it did not find the FSW Lear or 441. Geoff

    Are there any recommended PTA settings (I forget the official name of the files) out there that can be shared with me for realistic settings for tubeliner flying? Thanks!
