  1. So, I had x plane 11 on my laptop: CPU: 1.8 GHz RAM: 8gb 750gb HDD And I just switched it over to my desktop: CPU: 3.8 GHz RAM: 8gb 1tb HDD, newly formatted and a brand new install of windows 10 * My desktop does not have an upgraded graphics card nor does my laptop * All settings are on minimum I have not run any tests on my desktop yet to see the usage of the cpu and other items. I dont believe my cpu is overheating because everything else runs perfect. This just doesnt make sense to me. I can actually fly a plane on my laptop with a slower processor, but not on my desktop with the same RAM and nearly twice the processing power. Any ides are welcome. Id rather not shell out extra cash for a graphics card, but I might be willing to purchase more RAM.
  2. I have a "Desktop Aviator model 2450B" gps unit (with the vga screen) that I'm contemplating including in a new cockpit build. I haven't installed the unit before, and have a few questions, should anyone here be familiar with these units: (1) Sim compatibility: I understand they are compatible with FSX. I would like to know if they work with FSX Steam and/or Prepar3d? (2) Reliability: Before I make up a place for it in the cockpit, I'd like to know whether these units reliably install and operate? I ask because I see the manufacturer no longer offers these units. Any advice is appreciated, Many thanks, Brian Vancouver, BC

  4. I'm interested in learning if anyone has any information concerning PMDG's plans on porting out its amazing 737, 777 etc. to the Xplane platform in the future. I'm thinking the DC6 might have been a trial balloon and a foot in the door for future developments that will include its airline fleet. Please no opinions on what the best Sim is. I don't care. I have them all.
  5. Hello, I am wondering whether the following hardware configuration is suitable for use with Prepar3d, latest version? I have not used Prepar3d before, and am not especially computer savvy. My environment would include Orbx and either ga or corporate aircraft. If it is not sufficient, I would appreciate any practicable advice on which components will need to be upgraded (to what?). I'll either be using three (3), 24" 1080p monitors or a larger size UHD tv. Thanks, Brian Specs: CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K Socket LGA 1151 Unlocked (...should it be delided to ~4,7Ghz ?)

  6. A fun afternoon of flying! For as much general aviation flying as I have done, VFR at 17,500 is an entirely different experience! If I could explain what this bird is like in one word...elegant! To say the least, Austin's piloting skills are on POINT!
  7. Hey pilots! I currently own P3D v4 with a lot of add-ons and thinking of setting up X-Plane 11 as well and use both, I searched online about the different add-ons for X-Plane 11 and I saw that a lot of people are divided for some of the add-ons. (looking for P3D v4 equivalent add-ons for X-Plane 11) Below are all the add-ons I currently own on P3D v4 and I’d appreciate it if you can copy & paste the list and mention the P3D v4 equivalent add-on for X-Plane 11. (Payware is not an issue, what matters to me is the quality and realism ) Scenery: - Orbx FTX Global Base Pack - Orbx FTX Global Vector - Orbx FTX OpenLC - Orbx sceneries by country (England, Germany North, Etc..) - FS Global Ultimate Textures: - ENVTEX Weather: - ASP4 - ASCA - PercipitFX Airports: I know who develops the best airports for P3D v4 but I have no idea who are the major devs for X-Plane 11 airports Aircrafts: - FSLabs A320x – JARDesigns A320 (Also waiting for FF A320) Utilities: - Chase Plane - PTA - GSX - PFPX - Fsaerodata (to update P3D v4 Nav database) Many thanks in advance guys!
  8. Hello everyone! I am an FSX user who often uses the website fuelplanner.com to calculate the required fuel for his flights. The thing is however, that when I visited the website on the 15th of December, I was greeted with a quite unfriendly window asking me to sign against FCC's decision about net neutrality. To make things clear, I am totally against this decision, and I would happily offer my sign against it, IF IT WAS WORTH ANYTHING. You see, as this decision only affects the USA, I see no reason for someone else but the US citizens to sign against it. So, I closed the annoying and unfriendly red window I was greeted with, only to find out that I can no longer use the site. The only thing I see when I visit the website is this: var _bftn_options = { theme: 'glitch' }; So, does anyone know who is the word not allowed who runs the website? So I can find him, and ask him how to reset the website to its normal form and sign the damn thing? Alternatively, can anyone recommend of a good, hopefully free, fuel planner?
  9. Hey guys! It’s been a while since I’ve been on avsim! I recently purchased the Oculus Rift while it was on sale for Black Friday. One of the first things I did was run X-plane 11 with the flyinside demo. I was very impressed with how it all felt/looked. Except everything was noticeably more blurry than other native VR programs. I was a bit disappointed with the FPS I was getting too, however I am running a MSI Gtx 970sc so I can’t complain too much. I did some research and found out that the guys over at laminar are planning on bringing Native VR to X-plane after the 11.10 release. Also they said they were working on switching to the Vulcan API, which is very exciting for us summers that are struggling with low FPS. I haven’t really seen much info on where they are at with either of these things. Does anyone know when or if they will bring the native VR before the end of the year? There are only a few more weeks of 2017 so hopefully they will make it a Christmas present for us! Cpu: Intel Core i7 4770k haswell (quad core) Thanks for reading! Hopefully someone has some info because I want to get flyinside, but I don’t want to purchase it then have X-plane come out with native vr! Good things come to those who wait?
  10. My eighteen-year-old daughter recently told me she discovered my Flightsim videos on Youtube. Seemed like she was encouraging me to share my videos with a wider audience than those of us who frequent our forums here. So today I linked one of my Xplane videos on my Facebook page. I've always gotten good responses to my nature and city photography there so I decided to curb my shyness about the sims outside our circles and gauge how many are interested. So far several pp have seen my setup, which works especially well with my Logitech 3D Pro controller. Xplane11 specifically needs a well weighted, firm controller or yoke since it does not use null zones like FSX/P3D do. This controller has a built-in null zone. I am posting a link to my facebook page, if it is not allowed, mods please feel free to remove my link from this post. John https://www.facebook.com/john.cillis

  13. Pilot2ATC + World Traffic 3.0 + X-Plane 11

    Hi, I try to use all three together Pilot2ATC+World Traffic 3+ XPlane11 but I cant find the final Solution for it. Is their someone who can help me how the three work together. Thanks Wolfgang
  14. 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
  15. Many people really wants to fly the 747 pmdg in X-Plane 11, many people are tired of this.... Please PMDG help us !!!! we need you in x-plane !!!!
  16. I had the chance this week to meet up with Austin at our local airport KCUB. As an air traffic controller at Columbia Approach, Austin and I have developed a unique relationship. What a great yet knowledgeable individual. There are some amazing features that X Plane is getting ready to roll out. In another post I'll post my video interview and detailed follow up on what he has planned! Of course this information is no secret and Austin has allowed me to share it with the flight sim community. Just to give you a tease, some may or may not know, but Austin and his team intend to make this lovely simulation platform, XPlane, available in several different languages. Sure, English is the language of aviation, but why not cater to those who don't speak it? Austin and I speak on the frequency several times a week and no matter what, he always remains professional. He is one heck of a pilot and friend.
  17. What is Viva Airlines? Viva Airlines will soon be the most professional and technologically advanced VA around! After becoming the largest Virtual Trucking Company in the American and Europe Truck Simulator community, we felt it was time to start up operations in the sky. After 2 months of research, software development, and mod development, we are close to finally to opening our doors for good! Our mission was to create a place where aviation enthusiast that could come together to form a friendly community of all cultures. Viva members will always come first and in order to do that, we must ensure responsibility, respect, trust, and initiative towards all members. What makes us different? To stay ahead of the vast competition of Virtual Airlines, we have invested hundreds in providing our members with the most technologically advanced VA software custom coded by our development team. From our Pilot Hub to our custom Viva Airline app, the experience never ends. Along with our technology, we've worked 1 on 1 with real pilots in the industry to create a realistic atmosphere for all of our Pilots. From logging software to flight logs, our research team has implemented real world industry standards into our Airline. How can I join? We are still working as efficiently as possible to finish our community development. Viva Airlines will be open and accepting pilots Winter of 2017. To stay up to date on our development, sign up on our news letter at https://goo.gl/G5BysG . Thank you for your intrest in Viva Airlines!
  18. I have XPwideclient - XPUIPC - Plan-G working perfectly together on my X-Plane 10 multi-PC multi-monitor setup.At very least this suggests that I understand the settings required of the programs, have set them up correctly,and that my network is configured and working correctly. However, try as I might I cannot get the programs to play together on my X-Plane 11 installation using the same hardware. All programs are run as admin and firewalls are down on all PCs. I have opened Port 54942 (which I remember seeing somewhere as being associated with XPwideclient) on my router - did not make any difference!!! .XPUIPC is configured properly in Resources/ plugins folder. When I try to launch XPwideclient v2.0.0.3 with XP11 running it just 'sits there' without any connection to the server. XPwidclient.txt shows: Waiting for UDP from server Status INIT granting multicast to 192.138.1.9 Status NOT CONNECTED Closing connection to server OK I am at my wits end - have searched and searched over the last week for a solution but apart from the usual " configure the .ini properly". "take down firewalls" etc etc the solution has evaded me. Can anyone suggest what else I might try? Bob Ward Melbourne, Australia (A very chilly Melbourne)

  20. Press Release: Japan Airlines Virtual turns 10! 4/1/2017 WATCH OUR VIDEO On this day 10 years ago in 2007 a new Virtual Airline was born and its name was Japan Airlines Virtual. JAL Virtual was started by an avid 13-year-old aviation enthusiast, we started on a free host under the domain jalvirtual.x10hosting.com, our website was very basic and we had no PIREP system whatsoever, we were using a web form to submit ours pireps. A small VA starting in an area with many established and well respected airlines at the time, at the start it was rough, inexperience and lack of skills plagued us for the first 6 months, however after that we steadied ourselves and became a more professional organization with the registering of our domain name jalvirtual.org/jalvirtual.com. After two years, it was time for the first big upgrade of JAL Virtual. We were one of the first adapters of the then new and revolutionary PHPVMS pireps system, a system that we use to this very day. For our airline, this system is our backbone and a key pillar to our success, due to the nature of this software we were greatly able to offer many different features and expand our scope of activities. During this period, we experimented with many different things such as training programs, greater cooperation with online flight simulator network’s and virtual airline alliances. Some of them were great successes and some of them failed but from experimenting and trying, we learned a lot. A great influx of new pilots joined our ranks, an amazing sense of community was established between our members, teamspeak voice chats/flights were very common, new friends were made and connections established. By this time, we were experiencing double digit flights per day and over 1,000 flights a month. Also, updated our image and brought back the circle crane logo, just like our real-life counterpart. Now to the present, we have made it to 10 years, today, we are now 10 years old, its breath taking to see our amazing story unfold and evolve over that span of time, it brings great joy, pride and strength to every member of JAL Virtual. Everything, that we have done with our members, other VA’s, online networks and the flight simulator community in general, matters. Everything that we have built up as an organization over the last 10 years has now blossomed like a Sakura tree. It’s all worth it in the end. Fly into tomorrow virtually! – We can look back into our past, look upon proudly. Our future, is more important, we are at a milestone year, and milestone years deserve, special attention. Our third evolution is coming over the next few months, that is an entirely new system, new website. Also throughout the coming months we will be having 10 events for our members and the community. Please see the previous post for that. We are now 10 years old, what will the next 10 years bring JAL Virtual? We can only watch and see. But for now, we celebrate this milestone and look into the future. For the Love of Aviation. Touy Smith Founder and CEO of Japan Airlines Virtual. http://Jalvirtual.com admin@jalvirtual.com
  21. Wing flex in P3D

    Hi guys, I've always had both P3D and X-Plane, but mostly prefer P3D because of the PMDG products. However, one thing that I've noticed over time is that the wing flex in X-Plane looks very realistic compared to P3D (a smooth "wobble", so to speak, whereas in P3D it's a slower/more clunky animation). Is this just a limitation of P3D, or has someone figured out a way to smooth it out a bit and have it animate more realistically? For reference, here's a comparison: P3d: X-plane: Regards,
  22. Probably been discussed before but i'm intrigued. Lets say you have no experience in real world aviation, yet you have many many hours in flight simulator using the a2a, aerosoft, pmdg aircraft (the 'realistic' ones). And suppose you are on a jet liner coming back from holiday or a business meeting - you name it - and a very unlikely event of both pilots becoming unable to fly or help - Would you step in to help? If you were the only person on that flight that had any idea how planes operate, would you take on the responsibility of landing a jet liner with only flight simulation experience? So like the title says -- the question really is apart from the burden of great responsibility in real life aviation, how close to reality are modern day sims with all these new addons? Discuss, Will.
