  1. Hello, so i tried installing the Qualitywings 757 in FSX-SE, and since it was updated about 2 years ago it came with the an old version of the addon manager. It installed that addon manager on my computer and when i tried running the sim. i pressed never run addon manager thinking i would still have the most up to date one. when i spawned in, the addon manager menu has disappered and now i tried everything i can but it still wont come back. is there a way to try to run the coatl that is responsible for addon manager?

    No Activation Box

    Hey guys, I have just re-installed Prepar3D. I have downloaded 737ngx BASE PACK with ADMINISTRATOR, and I have made sure I have all right permissions. I clicked the 737 in the scenario screen, but for some reason the activation menu will not pop up. No buttons/panels will work either. Please respond soon. Oskar Rocko P.S The activation menu popped up before and worked before I re-installed Prepar3D. P.S I have read a forum on this before, and I tried alot of what they said. It may be some registry or some FNPLicensing problem Idk.
  5. Hello Simmers; I need to find out the best config. for Nvidia Inspector for my Prepar3d V2.5 and V3 I can`t find a good config for it and I think because of that I`m getting instability issues. My PC specs and tweaks are: Windows 10 64x pro Intel i7 2600K OC to 4.3Ghz using Corsair Hydro liquid cooler 8GB of RAM 1866 SSDs GPU: 2 x ASUS GTX 660 Ti DirectCu "SLI" Maybe some has the same config. I`ll be so grateful for the assist and if you need my .CFG info, let me know. Thiago ​
  6. Good evening, I have a problem with black clouds that i hope you guys can help me with. As you can see i have big black clouds. I am using PTA 2.0 with Pedrag's preset, ENVTEX, AS16 and REX Soft Clouds. I have searched around, and i've tried to delete the content in /AppData/LockheedMartin/Local/Prepar3d/Shaders, and i have also replaced the ShadersHLSL with the original folder wthout luck. Any suggestions? Anyone know the solution for this? Greatly appreciated!
  7. Johan Dees has been a member almost since we opened the doors to AVSIM and a member on this forum since we replaced the original in 2002 with this one. Johan has been a steady contributor to the flight sim community and is a well recognized face in the forums. Congratulations Johan!

    What does this do?

    In the P3D controls list is one called Turbine Power Management System Toggle. I enabled it but couldn't see that it did anything. Can someone bring me up to speed on what it is and how it works? Noel

    WOAI Aircraft Lights

    Has anyone found a solution to the landing lights not working on the WOAI aircraft.
  10. Hi, I must admit its getting a bit hard and pretty complicated with all those add-ons and since ORBX and Scenery configurator also is not kompatibel makes things even more exciting sometimes. Lately after a Flytampa EHAM install i noticed that i did not have any Amsterdam City with SkyScrabers and football stadions . Also this Autogen folder inside P3D can change over time and after a FTX Central V3 open/close episode. I am wondering if it has something to do with this "Autogen Folder" that i am missing Autogens (Amsterdam Skyscrabers ) ? Any help is appreciated and understanding of what is exactly being changed in that folder over time is more than welcome Thanks Michael Moe
  11. Hi all, Yesterday I installed the autogen from NL2000 ; trees, houses, buildings. I remarked that I have missing buildings in the center of all major cities. First I thought that they had not done these, but the ere ag files that cover these spots too. I have FTX Global installed and later France VFR products. France VFR makes a copy of some of the Autogen files, like default.xml , materials.spb , autogendesriptions.spb and roofdescriptions.spb. It might be possible that FTX Global has changed thoses files and the backup that FranceVFR made is not the default one. To exclude any issues with the NL2000 autogen I want to reinstall the default Autogen folder. Is there any way to reinstall them without having to reinstall P3D complete ? ( Eg renaming the current P3D folder to P3D.old and installing a new one next to it ..? ) Thanks for all suggestions. Nb : when trying freeware Netherlands autogen buidlings appear in the cities centers. And those ag files have the same name as the files in NL2000.
  12. Hi! Installed P3D v3 today. When i try to install the PMDG aircrafts (737800900) (777LR) etc, i get a warning: "Unable to locate Prepar3D.eve. Unable to install. I a´have the latest installer and i unpacked it in the same drive where i have my Prepar3D installed. What should i do? /Jacob

    Advice for new P3D system

    Hi everyone. Hope you all has an amazing Xmas...... Just a little time poor in getting information on a good system to run P3D. I have a budget of $1.8K and looking to make the switch from FSX to P3D. If anyone out there can put together some specs I would greatly appreciate it. A few months ago I picked up a GTX 970 4GB so was thinking of using it in the new system to save some $$. I also intend to use my existing 27inch monitor and not looking to go into 4K just yet. I have all the ORBX range (pretty much) and run PMDG, high quality scenery addons etc....... Appreciate your help guys. Jas

    Bad colours in P3D v3.4

    Hey, First of all I wish yo a happy new year and all of luck. :smile: Now, my problem is that my sky textures look very weird. There are no smooth transitions between the colours. I don't know why this happens or what it causes. Could anyone help me ? Thanky you very much and have a nice weekend. (in the picture it does not look as bad as it actually is)
  15. I've used CP with TIR manual launch and loved this add on, with 1.5 and added native TIR support this is simply awesome!!
  16. Not sure exactly when this happened but whenever I try to create a flight plan using the P3D planner the save option is greyed out if KRNO is involved. No other airports do this. Ideas? Thanks

    Changing Image Posting Rules - User Poll

    We are thinking about changing the image posting rules. Please read and provide us your opinion. First, a great contributor to the AVSIM processor load is resizing and display of hosted images; that is, for images that are saved and displayed by our system here. Images hosted elsewhere are also resized to in order to fit our rules of display size. Second, the availability of free storage space on the Internet has become easily accessible to everyone. Examples are Dropbox, Google drive, personal sites that allow you to host images (like Google's Picasa albums, etc.). Here is what we are considering: AVSIM's screenshot forum becomes "hosted elsewhere" only. We shut down all upload rights to the SS form, Real Aviation photos etc. The only images allowed there will be those that are hosted elsewhere. Images that show examples of issues and which meet our size requirements and are appropriate for the other forums will be allowed to be uploaded in the other forums. In those forums where hosting is required, we would allow as many images as the poster would like to put in the topic. Again, we are just thinking about this change. How do you feel about this step? You can participate in the discussion in the forums here.

    The AVSIM Hack - A Restropective

    On this day, at approximately 10:00 p.m. EST, four years ago, AVSIM was hacked. Or, as it turned out, destroyed from within. You can read the full story here. This is not so much a time of reflection on the hack itself, but on the response of the flight simulation community; you. Without the support and contributions from our readers and community members, AVSIM as you know it today, may not have existed. The community INITIATED on its own a fund raising effort and in the end, contributed over $30,000 to our rebuilding and future system growth. This story is about those of you who saw something in AVSIM that deserved saving. This is a story about those of you who wanted this thing called AVSIM to continue. This topic isn't about the hack necessarily; it is about you and your memories of the time after the hack. Why did you contribute? Why was AVSIM worth your contribution? Your thoughts about then and now? If you lived through those times, give us your insight into your perception of events then and the hindsight that you possess today. You can join the discussion of the hack and give us your insights and comments here.

    Night lighting on fire

    I'd like your opinions on how to get night lighting corrected on my P3d v3.2 setup. Basically, it looks like any urban / suburban textures are a raging firestorm - way too bright and lit up everywhere. (I don't have a good place to store a photo, or I would have a link here...) My setup: - v3.2 - Orbx Global and LC NA - UTX roads - REX textures for water, sky, clouds - using PTA v2.0 I have tried every combination I can think of - Orbx night lighting on / off, UTX night lighting on / off, reduced the autogen emissive value in PTA. These things make a bit if difference, but overall it looks like a forest fire below me. The rest of my P3d world looks great. Thanks, Ron
  22. Season's greetings everyone, For those who have upgraded to the lastest client version, have you had any issues with the latest version? I have a fairly stable previous version - although I'm pretty sure it's 3.3.5 - I need to check. I think I rolled back when I developed issues with the previous 3.4. Just wondered if there were any significant reasons not up upgade. Have fun.

  24. Hi, I have lost my PD dedicated SSD, and still have reinstalled averything on a new one, P3D, A few aircrafts and tons of Orbx sceneries. But I cannot install my FS Gloabal mesh DVD upgrade (the same installer was OK the last time) When it coomes to the screen for choosing the simulaytor, the option FSX is selected, and no way to change it. And when i go on it lets me choose the installation folder, but does not accept the PD folder, it wants FSX. What can i do ?
  25. I have i4790k and a GTX 1070. In trying to see what is causing some big pauses around EGLC, I see that if I limit my FPS to 31, my kill-a-watt shows 180 watts. If I set FPS to unlimited, I will go to 280. This was clear day, no ActiveSky. Limiting to 31 FPS seems to be ok and I save money and the planet too. I originally had ORBX England (and all the base ORBXs), but since going to latest p3d version, something has been broken (yet OOM seems a few times less). I did uninstall England as OOM was just too much around UK2000 Heathrow. Going back to original issue, I found that traffic causes quite a bit of pausing. I did try cranking up shadows, but gives some FPS hit on the 1070.
