  1. Excited to see there is an update from XP11 beta already. Unfortunately, installer wants me to click through each of the 1000's of modified files. Seems the "Do this for all files in this directory" button doesn't work, leaving you to have to click "Overwrite" of "Keep" for each file. Anyone else have this problem? Any work around?
  2. Hello I am sharing with you, this videtutorial, explaining how to fly the Eclipse 550. The flight is a full flight from Barcelona to Marseille, with ILS landing, using real charts and proceeding with the TAXI, FMC programming and everything, also using the ATC. The video is extensively explained with SUBTITLES IN ENGLISH AND SPANISH, also try to reproduce the original call outs when taking off and landing. The videotutorial is also in High Definition, so you can enjoy it in your computer screen or even your SmartTV. I hope you like the video, and share it if you like it. Cheers
  3. Hi I am sharing with you this videotutorial in which we are describing how to fly with NDB. We will learn how to fly with NDB in jets, understanding how to tune in and fly directly to a NDB, what is a NDB compared with a VOR, what are routes against radials from VORs, what is a QDR and a QDM and how to intercept a certain QDM or QDR in flight, and how to fly with NDB in heavy turbulence conditions. We will fly with daylight and night. In Spanish: En este videotutorial aprenderemos como volar con NDB en reactores, entendiendo como sintonizar y volar directamente a un NDB, que es un NDB comparado con un VOR, que son las rutas de los NDB frente a los radiales de un VOR, que es un QDM y que es un QDR, como interceptar determinados QDR y QDM en vuelo, y como volar con NDB en condiciones de turbulencia severa. Volaremos durante el día, por la noche y al atardecer. ENGLISH AUDIO SPANISH AUDIO (AUDIO EN ESPAÑOL) Cheers
  4. 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.
  5. 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?

  8. X-Line Virtual Aviation is a new virtual airline for X-Plane pilots. Currently we have 21 planes in our fleet, and offer 800+ routes across the whole world. We also allow charter flights, so everyone can fly their favorite aircraft on their favorite route. We use the new VAM software, including the SIM ACARS. This gives us the oppertunity to log the complete flight, including all kinds of extras, like landingspeed, lights on/off, taxispeed, etc. As soon as PMDG releases their DC6 for X-Plane, we will add it to our fleet, along with some historic routes. We are working on a shared-cockpit function. Check out our new website and join this nice new VA: www.xlinerva.com Kind regards, Johan Wijnands CEO
  9. I have converted flytampa's kai tak to xplane 10, but there are 2 issues I'm facing. Everything looks pretty good except I get this layer of haze over the city that I can't seem to get rid of, and the runways at Kai Tak airport don't quite line up correctly, so you see 2 runways. If someone has converted this awesome addon and got it to look right in X-Plane 10, I'd appreciate if anyone can help me fix these issues so that I can use this scenery. Here are some screenshots to show the problems: Runway isn't lining up properly, and if you look you can see a layer of haze/smog above the city that came from the conversion that I don't want.
  10. Its my first Xplane video. I hope you like it...
  11. Good Eveing Pilots. I'm Mark & i'm the VCEO at WeGo Airways. We have been running for the last 7months but (like all the rest i guess) looking for new pilots and staff members!! We are a 5 tier airline. 1) Normal passenger operations for our fictional airline WeGo Airways (We even have paints avaliable for FSX users) 2) Cargo Division 3) Executive Division, Flying business jets all around the world. 4) Charter Division. Basically fly where ever you want using any plane in our fleet. 5) WeGo World. Another Passenger division for our fictional alliance. Real world schedules for real world airline. Currently we have 5 airlines in the alliance with 5 more set to join this month!!! Check us out at www.wegoairwaysva.co.uk to find out which airlines we have avaliable for you to fly. Although the type of aircraft you can fly is restricted by rank on passenger operations you can fly any plane in our fleet for any other operations (and earn hours, points and Virtual Money whilst flying them). So you like flying the T7. carry out a few T7 cargo ops and you'll have enough points in no time to fly the passengers. We believe that fly in your sim is a hobby and therefore we allow you to pause in flight (must disconnect from online client). We allow you to fly over night whilst you sleep if you wish. you can fly online or offline if you wish. you only need to file a pirep every 60days and if you cant commit to that just let us no. there is no restrictions on how much time you want off all we ask is you let us know. Although we don't believe in a big staff roster we are always looking for schedule managers which will give you added benefits. (Read our SOP for more info) Any questions please don't hesitate to ask or email us at ops@wegoairwaysva.co.uk Look forward to hearing from you See you in the skies. Mark VCEO WeGo Airways
  12. I have relocated this post to the "HARDWARE CONTROLLERS, JOYSTICKS, ...." forum. (I don't know how to delete this original post) Sorry for the confusion. 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
  13. Early morning flight from Sitka to Stewart with the EMB110 "Bandeirante". Addons used: SMP2, Dreamfoil EMB110, CZST Stewart from Beti-X.
  14. My 2008 Mac Pro running X-Plane 9.70 is giving me issues. At any airport when I't taking off or on approach the visibility reduces to the lowest setting possible. (I have real weather on). On Vatsim and just single player it happens. Its getting annoying. On Vatsim the other day I'm on a straight in approach for runway 28 on Vatsim at KORD. I'm on the visual its a sunny day with a few scattered clouds. Suddenly visibility reduces to nothing and I do a missed approach or quickly do the ILS. I live right next to KORD and it was still sunny. I know its good practice but its unrealistic. Any help? I will post specs if needed.

  16. 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 ?)

  17. 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😬
  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)
  19. I installed the Elite Hardware IF today AND purchased a license but am having major issues getting it to work with my Elite Pro Panel SE and AP3000. Running Windows 10. Attempting to run a Elite Pro Panel SE, Elite rudder pedals, & Elite AP3000 avionics panel. I first installed the Elite hardware drivers. I have Elite BATD FlightSim v8.6. All three hardware components work fine with the Elite flight simulator. When I bring up SimPlugin's Elite Hardware IF, all three hardware components show correctly in the status window. When I go CALIBRATE, the rudder pedals and toe brakes work. HOWEVER, the Pro Panel SE yoke, throttle quadrants, mixture and prop levers have no effect. The AP3000 doesn't seem to be recognized either. Second issue... When I start Xplane 10 and go to "equipment", I see a dialogue box that lists Elite hardware, but I see no where to calibrate the Elite controls; no controls responses either. SimPlugin installed in smame directory as Xplane 10. Any help would be appreciated. Dave
  20. I'm not a member on HiFi's forum, but I saw this posted elsewhere as a quote from their site. "With FS, we've worked about 12 years now on refining and improving depiction, improving our understanding of the depiction systems of FS, finding work-arounds to problems, etc. With X-Plane it's entirely different and we are starting from scratch. Weather stations, depiction modes, global vs. station based considerations, transitions, ambient wx control, cloud position capability, visibility effects, vertical air, effects in general, etc... these are things that are all specific to a sim and in X-Plane, much of what we've done in FS may not be possible at all. On the other hand, new things never possible with FS may now be realized. Hopefully by mid year we'll have a clearer direction on X-Plane and will be able to share further details". Here's the link: http://www.hifitechinc.com/forums/showthread.php?4341-Any-chance-of-an-X-Plane-product I really hope this happens. Weather is pretty much the only thing I want x-plane to improve on. P.s If anyone here is a member of their forum, please post more details (if there are any).
  21. Hello everyone. I have been playing X-Plane 10 for awhile now. Since I am on a Mac I can't really try out FSX. I've recently watched a lot of FSX videos on youtube to see the differences and I really admit that FSX looks a lot better. I am fully aware that this is because of 3rd party add ons. But even when I am using X-Plane 10 with add ons, it still doesn't compare to FSX. I have purchased parts to build a new computer for FSX because of this and am curious to know how is it that a 6-7 year old flight sim (FSX) can compete or even look better than X-Plane 10 which was released at the end of 2011? I am sad to find out that FSX is no longer being developed, such a shame since it is such an amazing looking flight sim. I've given X-Plane 10 a chance, but everytime I see videos of FSX on youtube, it makes me not want to even look back to X-Plane 10. I know the die hard fans will say that X-Plane 10 isn't about the graphics but the physics is priority. Well that's partyly true, but there's absolutely no eye-candy, if so it's very limited. Main reason I like playing flight simulators is for the graphics. I love nature, outdoors, and beautiful scenery. Which is why I love flying in the 1st place. X-Plane just doesn't really satisfy me in that sense. Another thing is, the payware planes have an absolute amazing level of detail to them that lacks in X-Plane. PMDG 747-400X, PMDG 737 NGX, Aerosoft Airbus X Extended, Captain Sim's 777. Truly stunning! However on the X-Plane side of things I don't feel the same way. The planes just aren't on the same level and that's also another negative for me. The only positive thing I can really say about X-Plane is that the physics are good. But not much else. I am hoping that there will be more addon developers making stuff for X-Plane soon, since FSX is no longer being developed. I would love to see OrbX, UK2000, REX, FS2Crew, PMDG making stuff for X-Plane. I would like to hear how the rest of the community feels about this as well. For those of you who have tried both, what are your thoughts and opinions.

    Home Cockpit

    Hello, I wanted to share my actual Home Cockpit Project. I think that some of you should be interesting. I'm making a Home Cockpit of Cessna 182/206 for P3D and Xplane. The Flight Desk is made by Ruscool in New Zealand. I make the cockpit in Wood by my Carpenter. The Rudders come from TRC and the Yoke from Flight Illusion. More details in next posts... Here are some 3D views of the Cockpit : I also made a Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/LeNezenLair1/
