  1. OMGEDSON liked a post in a topic by angeli662 in How to Enable Ultimate Performance Mode in Windows 10   
    First, open Control Panel/Power Options and make sure it isn't already enabled
    .
    To enable ultimate performance mode. You will need to make sure that you have installed the latest Windows April 2018 update. Ultimate performance mode is only available to Windows Workstation, but you can enable it in any edition of Windows. Open a command prompt with admin privileges and type in the following:
    powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61 Then when you go into power plans, you should see ultimate performance mode listed.

    @OMGEDSON They’re confirmed now
  3. OMGEDSON liked a post in a topic by TomcatUK in The "DOVETAIL" forum tag, should we change it to "MISC SIM" ?   
    My view is .. We need a generic bucket for all other sims .. to avoid the list becoming too long. Only the major ones need their own entry.

    We certainly need to ditch the Dovetail tag.
    ‘Misc sim’ or ‘Other Sim’should cover it.

    We're just about to let loose with KVUO, so after keeping mum for so long, I thought I'd send up a few preview pics. I'm so happy to be working back in the Pacific Northwest again! :-)

  8. OMGEDSON liked a post in a topic by airjuneau in Navajo Tribal Park (Monument Valley) by Frank Dainese and Fabio Bellini for Xplane11 preview   
    Here we are the first images of the new scenario for Xplane 11: 
    Navajo Tribal Park or simply Monumnet Valley. 
    It is a completely rebuilt and renovated remake of one of my scenery for FSX (Orbx). 
    A spectacular area, where nature has generously creating stunning landscapes and incredible beauty. 
    The area is between the states of Utha and ARIZONA, covers about 350 square kilometers and is the border between the degrees + + 37-111 and 36-111. 
    Ben 21 3D models of the main peaks derived from DEM data and then reworked and completed with 4K textures (UHD). 
    No orthophotos used but all the ground rebuilt with typical of the area polygon / texture (desert).
    The mesh completely reconstructed by Fabio and adapted to the positioning of 3D models. Moreover, all the streams reconstructed. 
    All the main buildings played. The four most characteristic areas (Airport, Oljato, View Hotel, John Ford Point) played with many details. 
    Scenario only suitable for VFR flight, helicopter, aerolite ... 
    1 Airport (UT25) Monument Valley and other heliports 2 (View Hotel, John Ford Point) to facilitate the flight by helicopter. 
    It will be available during the summer. Here are some preview pictures ...

  11. OMGEDSON liked a post in a topic by TomcatUK in China Sichuan Airlines pilot 'half sucked out of plane' survives   
    A Chinese passenger jet was forced into an emergency landing after its windscreen blew out at 32,000ft (9,753m), sucking the co-pilot halfway out of the plane.  
    Captain Liu Chuanjian said the Airbus A319 had been cruising mid-air when a deafening sound flooded the cockpit.
    "There was no warning," he told the Chengdu Economic Daily. 
    "The windshield just cracked and made a loud bang. The next thing I knew, my co-pilot had been sucked halfway out."
    Thankfully the plane landed safely with only minor injuries reported.

    Turbulent Designs Confirms MBS International Airport for X-Plane
     
      Turbulent Designs are known in the Prepar3D world for their high quality scenery add-ons. In fact, as a team, they made it clear that they would be focusing purely on modern simulators and taking advantage of the 64-bit capabilities they bring. With that in mind, they did start developing for X-Plane 11 with the release of their Idaho Falls, which was met with a really positive reception. Now, the team are back with confirmation they’re bringing another of their popular airports to X-Plane. Introducing MBS International Airport.
    MBS International Airport is a small airport only served by a handful of airlines. However, it sees plenty of traffic from private jets and general aviation. The original P3D version impressed me with the excellent internal modelling and by the looks of the previews below, it would appear they’re aiming to achieve the same thing here.

    Flight Sim World Free Mission Packs
      With the upcoming closure of Flight Sim World on May 24th, developer Dovetail Games has made the announcement that the mission packs they had created for FSW so far, will now be available for free. There are a total of three mission packs, respectively named ‘Epic Approaches’, ‘The Last Frontier’ and the ‘Spanish Job’. The mission packs can be downloaded from the Flight Sim World Steam Store page.
    It’s good to add that not only these mission packs are now available for free, there are also a lot of price drops from other developers active until the product will be closed on aforementioned date. Flight Sim World and purchased addons will remain in your Steam Library, but you will not be able to purchase the sim or new addons any longer after then.

    Well, the problem I will have with this airport : the snow look amazing there, but what about all th rest of the world where it is (in FSX/ P3D) all flat and has no volume/ physics ??
     
    Anyway, I want the same snow EVERYWHERE 😛
