As you all should know by now I'm Captain Cheapskate. So, let's find a deal where we can "buy" Puerto Rico for free. Check out these addons that are on sale: http://www.pcaviator.com/store/home.php?cat=1081 I once posted a while back how to get the Wefly Works GPS for free using the $5 off code which did work. It's a nice little replacement for the default GPS. It adds autopilot to any aircraft that you add the GPS to and it adds a traffic radar to the map. Anyhow, since Puerto Rico (regularly a $14.95 price) is free with any purchase, just purchase one of those Wefly Works items on sale that are under $5. Add the code so the product is free. Then follow the instructions above to add Puerto Rico to your shopping cart. Even if you don't end up using the GPS you'll get yourself a nice tropical scenery for free.

    After watching several Youtube videos and reading some documentation, fellow patron Awicker18 and myself completed a flight Saturday evening from KISP-KPIT with me as the Pilot-in Command and Awicker18 as the Co-pilot. The current state of the aircraft was in its turn around state to simplify the process. If you want to keep things realistic, try a cold and dark set up first, but ensure that the person you fly with has the same aircraft state. Note: Firewall settings DO NOT restrict the connected flight deck, I noticed. When watching the Youtube videos, they recommend that these settings be turned off, but I've found that not to be the case. Step one: Download a program called Hamachi at https://www.vpn.net/ You will then be presented with this screen: Step two: Setup Hamachi and create a network Go to System, then preferences, then settings and under peer connections YOU and YOUR CO-PILOT NEED to have ENCRYPTION DISABLED. VERY IMPORTANT. Now that is set, the PILOT IN COMMAND needs to turn on hamachi, then go to NETWORK, then CREATE A NEW NETWORK and give the CO-PILOT the log in details. Keep this a simple as possible. Once, your CO-PILOT is logged in, you will see his DESKTOP NAME and a green light (the pic will not show green light because Awicker18 is offline at the moment). Verify the DESKTOP NAME with your CO-PILOT, then RIGHT CLICK on their DESKTOP NAME and choose ping. A successful ping will be a series of messages that will indicate that you are sending and receiving data from your partner. Step 3: The Aerosoft Configurator Here, you just have to make sure that BOTH PILOT-IN-COMMAND AND CO-PILOT have the same settings in the GENERAL Page. In Hamachi, RIGHT CLICK their DESKTOP NAME and select copy IPv4 address and paste into the OTHER SETTINGS page under CONNECTED FLIGHT DECK of the Aerosoft Airbus Configurator. I bet you are getting excited right now thinking you are ready for the coolest thing in flight sim right? Well let me humble your nerves real quick. Remember before you attempt the next steps that you have ensured THREE things: 1. You BOTH have your same aircraft model, livery, and location at the gate are the same. 2. You BOTH ensure that your AIRCRAFT STATE is the same. For example, if I am in a COLD AND DARK state, so is my co-pilot. 3. If you BOTH have the scenery then stay with that scenery, if not, switch to default scenery. Determine this BEFORE spawning at an AIRPORT. Step 4: The Sim. Chose the DEFAULT AIRCRAFT and first. I can't stress this enough. The MCDU breaks when you load the Airbus first. Then choose the departing airport. Your co-pilot should do the same. Then load in the sim. Once loaded in, go to your respective aircraft selection settings and choose the SAME AIRCRAFT MODEL Then go to you MCDU 2 Menu and select CONN FLTDCK The PILOT-IN-COMMAND is the MASTER connection and the CO-PILOT is be SLAVE connection. The MASTER connection must connect FIRST, then the SLAVE connection. NOTE: When you see a CONN. OK in green you can start flying. PILOT-IN-COMMAND handles GSX and other services. Co-pilot sets up the flight MCDU and fuel PILOT-IN-COMMAND handles the flight controls. Co-pilot handles Nav, Com, and MCDU PILOT-IN-COMMAND handles Lights Co-pilot handles Eng. start and flaps. I can go on and on about the greatness of cooperation you need to complete a flight but I'll let you guys determine that aspect. If you have any questions feel free to hit me on DISCORD with the others and I can walk you through. Thanks and KEEP FLYING!!!!!!

    Captains, We have just made live the first real-time product update for the PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies II product line. This will be your first introduction to our rapidly adapting live-update technology that will soon be used to cover everything from purchased product distribution to livery installation to product updating in real time. While we have tried to make this as simple-to-use as possible, we know that some of you will find creative ways to dive in and break it accidentally. That being the case, here is a quick primer on what to do: Run the PMDG Operations Center Click on the settings wheel (top, right) to go to the Operations Center udpate center. You should see a notification here telling you that the Operations Center has an update. Run the Operations Center Update. AFTER THE UPDATE IS COMPLETED... let the Operations Center run again and click the wheel at the top right. You will notice that the Operations Center alerts you that your 747 for P3D, FSX and/or FSX:SE requires an update. Click install.... THIS IS IMPORTANT: Let the updater finish before you do anything else. Don't click it. Don't touch it. Don't navigate to another window and try to run it again. Don't pick your nose while whistling. (just making sure you are paying attention...) Let the thing finish it's work... When the updater has finished (it will depend on your connection speed) you can then run the next update (if you have the 747 on a different sim platform) or you can go back to the product module and check the VERSIONS tab to see that you now have the most current version! (You can tell you have the most current version when the bar turns green... the text there will also assure you that you have the most current version, even if we change the version later!) This is a new technology- and we anticipate a few glitches along the way. We will be monitoring it through the weekend and we may need to turn it off/on briefly as we discover minor hiccups or items we need to fix that didn't come up in beta testing. We do not anticipate updating the eCommerce installers at this time, as we anticipate pushing a number of updates for this product line in very rapid succession, and as such anyone needing to reinstall the entire product can do so from the original installer and then run the Operations Center to get the most current version available. This will GREATLY simplify all of our lives because it will be simple to make sure you are up to date with the most current changes for this product line- and we expect to roll this update capability backward to the 777 next! http://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/506484-11mar17-real-time-product-updating-for-pmdg-747-400-queen-of-the-skies-ii/ PRODUCT: PMDG 747-400 V3 Lockheed Martin Prepar3D "Queen of the Skies II" Version: v3.00.8189 Note: Change lists below comprise items tracked within our internal bug monitoring system and do not reflect new items added to the software or items that were discovered during testing but not logged into the item tracking system.

    In a departure from their web-centric services, Twitch.tv is producing a desktop app, available March 16,2017. While I will be downloading this app and most likely using it, I am wary that twitch may be overextending themselves by taking on yet another platform. While today's software development has become relatively simple and straightforward, giving watchers too many options can dilute opportunities for advancement in other areas. This program includes chat servers and skype-esque video chats for up to 5 members. Interesting. http://app.twitch.tv RG

    http://www.aerosoft.com/en/other-simulations/pre-order/1978/early-access-version-on-the-road-truck-simulation?c=746 Product information "Early Access Version - On the Road - Truck Simulation" On the Road – the realistic truck simulator for the PC by the developer Toxtronyx is currently in an advanced stage of development. Use the Early Access phase to tell us about your own wishes and ideas, while being able to explore Germany’s roads already – for a discounted price! NOTE: This Steam Early Access game is currently not a finished game and may or may not change significantly over the course of development. To learn more about Steam Early Access, please have a look here. In the Early Access version, there are already about 1500 km of motorway and more than 300 km of country roads at your disposal – including 12 detailed motorway interchanges. The player can already stop by in 7 cities in North Germany (for now) like Hamburg, Bremen and Berlin, with unique road designs and sights. During the Early Access, 11 more cities will follow, e.g. Cologne, Dortmund, and Munich. Additionally, numerous other points of interest are waiting to be discovered during the journey, as well. The terrain rendition is based on real satellite data. Additionally, different weather conditions and an authentic day/night cycle are already implemented, with seasons following shortly. Thanks to the cooperation with MAN, the truck appears very realistically – including the MAN TipMatic transmission, retarder/Intarder, assistance systems and service modes. Articulated truck trains with different trailers, lift axles, and vehicle styles with consequences for the reputation are planned for the Early Access. On the Road also features a basic economic system, allowing the player to found his own company. In the long term more features are planned to make this system more complex, e.g. purchasing licences and hiring drivers. Join in now and take part in the development of On the Road! Features of the Early Access version for now: Game world: Ca. 1450 km motorway and ca. 320 km country road, to a scale of 1:10 12 detailed models of motorway interchanges 7 cities, some of them with unique road designs (e.g. the roundabout in Horn or bridge constructions) Numerous POIs in cities and near motorways and country roads All large waterways Ground based on real satellite data Different weather conditions Vehicles: Driving assistance MAN TipMatic transmission Retarder/Intarder Service modes Solo drives possible Gameplay: Economic system Found your own company System requirements: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit), Mac OS X 10.8 or newer CPU: at least 3.3 GHz RAM: at least 4 GB Graphics card: at least 1024 MB VRAM DirectX: 11.0 or higher Hard disk: ca. 5 GB free disk space Internet connection and Steam user account required! Notes: We provide a serial number with the purchase of this download version. Afterwards, you need to download this add-on via STEAM and activate it. This requires a STEAM account. Further information can be found in the installation instruction. To use this product you have to agree with the Steam Subscriber Agreement („SSA“).

    Why do you guys have to guilt me into working on the FreeMeshX - USA expansion? Well it's working!
  19. 1 point
    Hello I've just joined. A question for omgedson, why are you waiting for FreeMeshX North America, they have it at 38m LOD10, along with Canada in that same release. And if I read further they are working on USA with LOD11 and LOD12. I would far rather trust them with their 38m mesh, than this other you proposed with their so-called 5m mesh, and finding out otherwise. I have downloaded all of FreeMeshX's packages and using them, and am very happy with their product, Including South and central America. Cheers

    If you have the latest version of DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller for the uninitiated, get it, use it, be happy) it will make one for you before rebooting into safe mode. I have found that it doesn't always work properly or can sometimes overwrite itself so, I do mine manually and then run DDU. You can tell Cortana to search for "system restore" (right click windows logo in taskbar, search) and she'll give you the direct link to create one. Pro Tip: It's really quick, takes 10 or 15 seconds. It's not like making a backup it's just a quick snapshot. The long part comes when you initiate a restore, that can take a few minutes. It really is a good idea to create one before installing new programs or updating drivers. Uninstall utilities can leave changes in your registry or delete .dll's that are hard to correct or undo. Windows will also automatically make one when it runs its weekly updates so, if your system starts acting funky you know where to find some recourse. You can head over to system restore and you will see an entry labeled "Automatic Restore Point". That's the windows generated one, the date and time should match when you restarted your computer (assuming automatic install is off) for the update and you can roll it back and try again. System restore will not affect your personal files only system files, registry, installed programs and drivers. So, if you accidentally deleted your important word document or anything else in your personal folders, you're still screwed. It's protection for your operating system for any changes you make to it after the restore point you made. For protecting your data, use a backup.

    I might have to give this one a shot. I normally update every single time but, I'm still running 378.49 because P3D resets the driver causing CTD on my system no matter what. That's why I always make a restore point before driver upgrades. If it gives me problems I'll troubleshoot it for a little while and if I can't fix it, roll it back and keep on gaming.

    Sadly there will never bee that unicorn driver really. Now with this latest driver I have seen sweet gains in my GPU performance. Using monitoring tools its running alot better and using less resources and i'm running it all on ultra..minus motion blur i hate how its implemented in games

    Haven't seen that happen before. You can change all of those settings in the power options. Right click the windows icon in the taskbar and select "power options", then "change plan settings" for whichever one you have active. (I prefer high performance but you can customize whichever one you want) On the next window select "change advanced settings". There you should get a legacy (non-Aero) window pop up where you can change the settings for USB, PCI-e, Processors, wireless adapters and the whole nine. To stop the USB issue, turn USB selective suspend setting to disabled. The other issue seems to be sleep mode, so you can set that to never. I think the default setting for sleep mode returns you to the lock screen. I set my computer to sleep manually by left clicking the windows icon in the taskbar ( or hit the windows key on your keyboard) click power and you should have sleep, shutdown, and restart options. Hope that fixes your issues.

    I'm excited by this one folks.... Milviz Announce ATR 72 By Mungo Spencer / Mar 04, 2017 An aircraft that has been far too long awaited in P3D/FSX is finally being created. Milviz announced earlier on their Facebook page that they will be making the ATR as their next project. They did not say much about the product apart from the fact that it’s an ATR. They did not confirm exactly what type but it looks like it will be an ATR 72 of some kind. I personally do not own any Milviz products so am unsure of how detailed they are but I hope that this will be an accurate representation of an ATR 72. There is no mention or indication of an ATR 42 being made at this stage so we’ll currently just have to hope that they end up creating the smaller ATR varient. Much like the Dash 8, the ATR 72 is a turbo prop that wants to be a jet. A very quick and nimble aircraft that can handle all sorts of airports with ease. I look forward to hearing more about this aircraft. Any more news regarding this product will of course be reported over here at FSElite. https://fselite.net/news/milviz-announce-atr-72/

    You're welcome @tdubl26 Maybe next time they'll think twice before they come up against the hero of the little people in the flight sim community.... Captain Cheapskate!

    John Venema writes, Australia, being our first foray into regions back in 2007, obviously has the least amount of tech in it. However, we have begun work on Australia SP5. This will be a paid upgrade. First thing is all the airports are currently being upgraded as per the other regions. Neil Hill is doing this work. Secondly we will look at updating all the landclass with a more seamless blend between the old legacy sub-regions and using newer source data and better textures. Finally we will improve all coastlines, rivers, roads etc with newer vector data. This is not a small undertaking, expect this in late 2018 sometime. Additionally In the meantime, we have begun testing the new lighting upgrade for FTX AU to catch up with EU and NA and NZ.

    " Why 11GB of RAM? Nvidia said that’s about the right amount for games, which continue to consume more and more RAM. " Wait, what? That is an absolutely absurd amount of vRAM usage even for 4K max settings. Who is this gamer that's stressing out because he can't handle the jaggies on his 4k monitor and absolutely HAS to completely max out AA and supersample at 8K? My question is will games use it because they have it or, because they need it? If they need it, we get better games. If they have it, we get crap framerates and worse performance on mid and lower level cards. There are several publishers who have shown with their recent AAA titles that they're more concerned with the larger console market than spending development money optimizing pc releases. If GPU resources aren't efficiently managed at 1080 and 1440, it just gets worse as you go up and eats massive amounts of vRAM.
