  1. Hi, I just installed the latest 2.4 x64. I installed fresh to a new directory, and made sure the desktop shortcut is pointing to the right new directory. I have 24GB of ram on this box. The program launches really fast now, like in less than 2 seconds. Not sure if that is cuz it's x64 or because of the problem i'm seeing now. In the map area, when i click on the search button to enter in an airport, i type in an airport code and hit ok, and it doesn't do anything now. The satellite map shows ok, but it doesn't move to the airport at all. So, then, if i manually pan and zoom into the airport and then click on the left most button under the map (the blue runway button), i get an error dialog box that says: "Error displaying airports. Press ok to continue and report this problem to..." Any idea what's going on? Here's a link to a screen shot: https://photos.app.goo.gl/froyFKNsGKfUFfw82 Also, while i'm at it, i wanted to report another issue that has been going on for a while in many previous versions. In the Config dialog settings under the Flt Pln tab, For X-Plane, I have my "Auto Export Flt Plan File Paths" set to my x-plane 11 Output\FMS plans folder. However, when i export a flight plan the export dialog always goes (defaults) to my users directory (where it saves flight plans to) instead of that directory i have set for where to export them to. Thanks, Joe
  2. Hi, I was preparing RC2 updates and making some test flights with the latest XP11.1 RC1, when I realized: The GTN updates live from the external view! No impact on the FPS! XP11 is really a slick piece of software!
  3. Been playing with the weather settings in xEnviro and Ultra Weather XP, with some good results: Gathering thunderstorm over Albuquerque: Sunset and shadows: It's the Addons that make X-Plane a better enjoyment. UltraWeatherXP allows for the draw distance of the horizon to be extended, thus allowing for a clearer less hazy distance that is typical of a not so far off storm.
  4. In order to help everyone, I'm starting this thread for you to share your panel integration modifications. In order to make it simpler to browse as a repository, please make sure to only post final results, ready to be consumed by others. Thank you in advance for sharing with the community! NB: For panel mod questions, please create a new topic instead!
  5. Advanced Flight Modeling Simulation is excited to share that we are developing the Mooney M20R! Some of the custom systems we are developing: Electrical System (Circuit breakers, buses, and more simulated) Fuel System Engine Model (IO-550) Avionics Simulation Specialized Flight Controls Landing Gear/ Brakes The aircraft will be developed with accuracy, beauty, and performance in mind, assuring that we can make the ultimate simulation experience with X-Plane! The aircraft will feature the X-Plane GNS 530 & GNS 430. We are also working with RealityXP to implement their Garmin GTN 750 & GTN 650 into the aircraft*. See More at afmsimulation.com If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at any time! To follow our development make sure to subscribe to our newsletter at afmsimulation.com/subscribe/ * Windows edition only; separate purchase of RealityXP products is required to enable the feature
  6. This isn't my work, a user at x plane dot org has created a nice mod for the GTN 750 in Aerobask Panthera. I'm trying to contact him to make sure it's ok to post his work. But screenshots! I think there may be a way to get the GTN 650 working and I have been playing with some values but no luck so far. If you don't have the Panthera I highly recommend it - super plane! edit: I've just now taken what I learned from that user and made a GTN 750 mod for the Aerobask Eclipse 550 v2! pantheraGTN2 by ryan b, on Flickr pantheraGTN by ryan b, on Flickr eclipseGTNRXP2 by ryan b, on Flickr eclipseGTNRXP by ryan b, on Flickr

  9. Hi everybody, I'd like to introduce myself this way and say hello to you guys ot there :). Long story short, I startet my first virtual flying experience on an AMIGA 500 back in the late eighties and in my twenties I worked as an aircraft mechanic on airforce machines and also on GA planes like Cessna, Piper, Mooney etc. I'm in my early fourties now and after years of "flying" MSFS from version 98 on I again switched lanes and now X-Plane (10, now 11) supported with some addons (planes, scenery, realism tools...) provides the fun. Don't regret it. This year I found out about "On The Glideslope", got thrilled and now I plan to build something similar. Fot those who don't now about this, it's a nice basement simpit, great for single engine GA aircraft simulation like Cessna 172. Right now I'm doing a lot of research and I also gather desired hardware. With SketchUp I try to plan the cockpit itself. I test tools like Air Manager for a nice steam gauge panel and spadneXt to configure my already existing Saitek hardware the way I like and need it. Everything slowly comes together and in 2018 I'l start to bring everything together and build this thing. I don't rush things, since this is a hobby and I don't have any deadline to hold. But thrilled to build this thing I am :). Kind regards
  10. Hi everybody, in lack of a "soundcard" forum, I try to explain my request here . Please feel free to correct me. Since I plan to build my own simpit one thing bothers me: The too good sound quality using a microphone for e.g. "intercom" (two hedsets). Voices from the radio using e.g. pilots edge sound like the guy sits right next to you, it's a to clear sound . Out of the box and using the standard Windows settings real life radio and intercom just not sounds like the real thing. Windows 10 even can just raise the quality for its mic input but lowering it is not provided. I recall that Win95 had an option to set the sound quality to "telephone" which would be great here now. Does anyone know a little trick (software, settings etc.) to lower the sound quality just for the microphone and imcoming radio chatter? Appreciate any help :). Kind regards.
  11. The new Ultimate Realism Pack combined with the Eddie Sky Pack is amazing! I was always into Reshade/SweetFX (even ENB in my FSX days), and this is one of the best. It might be a bit too blue, but those sunrises/sunsets... amazing. So I took my trusty Laminar C172 for a spin from my KHAF Half Moon Bay to KTRK Truckee Tahoe. A predawn flight over San Franciso Bay, and then heading out to the mountains for a fun day ahead! Getting ready for the red-eye departure in my hangar, it's 4:30 in the morning Taxiing to the runway. Have to climb out quickly, lest I wake up the neighbors... The sun comes up over the northern part of the Bay WOW The outskirts of Sacramento Getting closer to Lake Tahoe The city of Lake Valley, and the lake On final for Truckee. Watch out for the crosswind! And happily landed! It's still early morning, and the whole day is ahead!
  12. Hi all, I'm sick of FSX and want a new 64 bit platform to build a new sim on. However I'm stuck between choosing X-plane 11 or P3D V4. What would you recommend and what sort of performance can I expect with the following specs (I know not to go max settings so I'm happy with medium settings): Intel Core i5 4690K Processor 3.50 GHz (Overclocked to up to 4.3GHz) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Graphics Card 16 GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600MHz RAM Seagate 1000GB SSHD Hybrid Drive Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit Assuming my sliders aren't maxed out and sitting in the middle, is it even worth buying X-Plane 11? Kind Regards Paul
  13. Hi, I've just found this forum with an interesting side-by-side comparison. It is in french but most screenshots are self-explanatory: http://forum.canardpc.com/threads/47639-simus-Le-topic-des-canards-pilotes-civilisés-Flight-Sim-X-Plane-P3D-AeroflyFS?p=11282333&viewfull=1#post11282333 Thank you Bourrinopathe for showcasing this!
  14. Hello to all, I thought it may be time to give that status of my upcoming product for X-Plane 11. This has been considered a groundbreaking effort if someone were to be able to provide a couple key elements in regards to photoscenery in X-Plane. Sure, there are ways to get a couple programs, learn those programs and download for hours upon hours with excitement for what's to come. Low and behold, after departing from your favorite field, you notice the rather poor tiles that are available for your area. One piece may be summer, one may be night. And where are all the damn trees?! Well, say goodbye to no tree's. It has taken me over 2 months to get as far as I have, and that is 10 hour days. Being Self-Employed is quite the helper for that. Initial reactions from a select few are a little more than just positive. "Beautiful...Great colors. Much better than anything one can find on Google or Bing." With the small but powerful partner I have been lucky enough to be in touch with and work with, I believe we may have a very exciting couple months ahead for you. First release is an estimated sooner rather than later. I want to get a good portion finished before I said much. It will Include all states shown above as well as Maine and Pennsylvania. I just have to keep doing my test flights...which is like eye-sex... StayTuned www.ortho4us.com
  15. I receive errors when trying to connect te ELITE HW with X-Plane 10 or 11. The ELITE HW (AP4000 &ELITE Pro Panel & Rudder Pedals.

  18. Hello my dear old friends. I supported you a lot back in the day during my FSX period, but since I went over to X-Plane about three years ago, FSX has become a part of my distant past. Once in a while I re-install it for a few days, but not because of FSX, but because of my FS2Crew products I miss. Will you ever bring out your awesome products for X-Plane.... PLEEEAAASEE? There are some excellent study sims in X-Plane with more to come. Eg. Existing IXEG 737-300. Upcoming, Flight Factor A320. Other very popular planes are the Jar Design A320, A330 etc. Please guys. Do you plan on supporting X-Plane? Kind Regards SpeedBirdNam

  20. Hi, I have the following happening: When I tune to an atis frequency, I can hear P2A reading the atis message in my headset but also X-plane is giving me an atis message which I hear in the speakers. What can I do to prevent X-plane from reading the atis message.
  21. Plane Maker Carenado CT210M I'm trying to use Plane Maker to make the panel look like the one in my real plane but all I get when I open the Carenado plane is a blank 2D and 3D panel. I've successfully moved instruments around on other planes (standard planes that came with X-Plane). Any help would be appreciated.
  22. Hi, Do you know about some free or donation ware aircraft, scenery, tools or other add-ons that in your opinion is a must have for us simmers? To start I will recommend SimToolkitPro that is now available as an Alpha release for FSX, P3d v3/v4 and X-plane 10/11 SimToolkitPro have or will have the following features: (Copy from http://fstoolkit.xyligo.co.uk/) Landing Reporting Centreline Deviation Descent Rate Charts Touchdown Speed and Rate Stopping Distances from Touchdown Approach Practice System Setup and Practiced an approach at any runway in world Straight In Finals Base Approaches Downwind Approaches Vectored/Intercept Approaches All fully customisable leg lengths, speeds and altitudes Configure your aircraft automatically from the UI Scenarios Practice some prebuilt scenarios such as the tricky Innsbruck DME approach, the Checkerboard Approach to Kai Tak or the infamous Maderia landing Create your own and share them Scenery Manager Manage scenery and load order for scenery files in FSX/P3D and X-Plane Live Map Live mapping and tracking of flights Streaming Tools Landing rate announcer bot (will have more features in future) Streaming outputs for OBS with live flight data Failures System Randomised and planned failures system
  23. Hi Does anyone have knowledge about a developing ARN(ESSA) airport scenery? I know about the SWEDFLIGHT Pro, but I think its a bit out of date, in regards of the graphics etc. Second question. Does someone know if converting the ESSA scenery "*RBX" works good, and if so, does it need a lot of fixes? / Sebastian

  25. Hello. My current system is: i7-3770K @ 4.2GHz, 16GB RAM, GTX 970 and I run at 2560x1440. I fly X-Plane, FSXSE and Prepar3d and overall I get satisfactory performance, except at busy airports (which I fully expected). It's possible (finances permitting) that I may upgrade CPU/MOBO/RAM towards the end of the year (I'll keep an eye on i9 prices). In the meantime, I'm thinking of buying a GTX 1080 Ti. I know this is a good card. Has anyone gone from a 970 (or similar) to a 1080Ti? Were you happy? Martin
