  1. I recently had a "surprise" upgrade over my old but very decent 3700k, getting a i7-8700k paired with an MSI GTX 1070. Both of them Overclocked to 5.0Ghz and 2050Mhz respectively. I created a small post about my settings including my PTA Preset. click the link if you think you could benefit from it: http://www.estassinos.com/prepar3d-current-settings/
  2. Sorry for my bad english Now all views deleting and they need to be re-created. Why, if there is a ready-made. E.g. Aerosoft PBY Catalina It has a lot of devices located throughout the cabin. Create new species is not a good idea. Thank you.
  3. Hi everyone! I have been a fan of FSX for quite some time and i recently decided to give P3D V3 a go. So far so good, everything looks much better than in FSX and it even runs much faster. I do have a problem tho, I am not sure if I am really getting the entire eye-candy that I should get, because I do see videos on youtube of people who managed to make the entire sim look almost perfect. Right now I'm having one particular problem I have seen in other threads for P3D V2 and V2.5, basically, SimObjects are just too dark at night, you almost can't see them, there's just a black silhouette where the aircraft or simobject is supposed to be. Allow me to illustrate. Notice also how the concrete is a light yellow color, this, as far as I know, is not normal at all. I would also like to point out that I have installed REX4, ORBX Vector and the airports you see are FSDreamTeam KIAH and Airsoft London Heathrow respectively. The concrete being yellow might be a problem not with the simulator itself, but with the airport. I have all settings turned up to max and quite a beast of a computer. I have also messed with the Prepar3D.cfg file to turn up the exposure and tweak the HDR, but the only thing it does is make everything bright, including the sky and the airport itself. In short, I'd like to make my sim look like this at night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTzfAOWFRLE And like this at day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fI9lN9pCJr4 (I am aware that SweetFX might be the thing making the video look so realistic). Here are some photos also of my sim during the day: Thanks! Any help would be appreciated!
  4. I apologize in advance for posting so many questions. I do search for these things, but so far there isn't much out there in regards to answers, at least not anything that has been spidered by Google yet. Anyway, to my question - how do I turn off this terribly annoying "You have lost your Internet connection" warning that pops up right in the middle of my screen at the worst possible times? Nothing is more annoying than lining up for a landing, only to have my view blocked by this warning. Yes, I know Microsoft, my Internet connection is sporadic at times, but you don't need to blind me with this warning. It's not like my computer is going to burst into flames or anything. So please, how do I turn this off, or at the very least, move it to the bottom of my screen instead right in front of my pilot's view.
  5. Folks, I'm having a problem with realism settings in P3D v4.3. Everytime I try to set the settings to "Detect crashes and Damage", the systems does not keep them, and go back to "Ignore crashes and damage". I've tried to change my Prepared.cfg to no avail, also I deleted the P3D client and reinstalled it, but the problem remains. This is happening with A2A aircraft, as well with others. I don't know if A2A own settins are messing with it.
  6. Is there any "behind the scenes" way to customize traffic tags? Perhaps some missing entry in the .cfg or .opt files... I do like seeing who I am sharing immediate airspace with, but traffic tags tend to pop up for planes over the horizon or otherwise not visible, cluttering my view. Is there a way to set a maximum range for when tags are visible? An alternative would be to bind a key to the tags, so I could quickly toggle them on and off. Unfortunately I don't see an option for this either.
  7. I built a new computer and installed P3D 4.5. Requesting guidance for setting up P3D I7-9700K - no overclock, will consider at later date Gigabyte Aorus z390 Pro Wifi 32GB 3200 RAM - XMP set in BIOS - 16GBx2 nVidia 2070 Super 2x - Samsung EVO 970 1TB M.2 - OS on one, P3D on other Samsung EVO 860 1TB SSD 4GB HHD - repurposed from old box 27" 1920x1080 primary and 19" 1280x1024 secondary Looking for baseline FFTF and AM settings, along with any other settings to look at. Any specific programs to use for setting Vsync, frame rate, etc? Hoping maybe @SteveW and other knowledgable members will chime in. If more specifics are needed, please let me know. Thanks Gene
  8. On my menu drop down list, "Content" and "Settings" are grayed out.
