Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

  1. This has been reported and disucssed in the "SODE issues" thread but not with a complete detailed approach (information in different parts of the VERY long thread) and it was missing the clients point.
  2. Hello all ! Missing your night ligths at HTKJ Kilimanjaro ? The solution is SO easy. Nothing to do with a "P3D glitch" or whatsoever. For whatever reason, the installer installs simobjects required by SODE to inject the lights at night in the wrong folder, actually in your sim root under ../Simobjects/Misc/HTKJ. SODE, since version 1.3 (December 2015 !), uses its own simobjects folder under PorgramData/12bpilot/SODE/SimObjects. Just move the HTKJ folder in that folder. Last modification : you have to amend the HTKJ_L.xml file in ProgramData/12bpilot/SODE/xml. The first SimObject has to read exactly like this : <SimObject Name="HTKJ_EDP"> <Placement Lat="-3.418987" Lon="37.0767355" Alt="310" Hdg="0.0"/> <Model SimTitle="12bPilot_SODE_Environmental_Data_Probe"> <EnvironmentalDataProbe ClientList="HTKJ_L;HTKJ_Spl;HTKJ_SplN"/> </Model> </SimObject> The model sim title as set by the installer is wrong, and they forgot one client in the client list! Aerosoft, please amend your installer ! You may have similar problems in other products (ENBR Bergen, ENGM Oslo....) Enjoy ! @Quint van den Hazel @mopperle
  3. Thanks Mathijs Just to make a correction on what I said above, I did NOT use the COMPUTER method. All my holding patterns used user-defined parameters. Anyway, the entries were far different from what is shwon in the Thales user manual for the FM system (see images attached - I found the document on Cheers G.
  4. UTL had a gift for me today, a private air show.... Or maybe it's Santa Klaus working hard to deliver all the gifts around ...
  5. Hello everyone I was practicing on holding patterns today and I came up with a surprising experience. I only practiced on COMPUTED holdings. From what I experienced, the Bus is always using DIRECT entry in the holding pattern. As an example, I was flying HDG 055 to TABIL where I set a holding 280R. I was expecting a parallel entry but the Bus decided to go direct and turned left at TABIL (see pictures). Is that possible to have offset/parallel entries ? Thanks, have a good day
  6. Version 0.9.0


    My first livery ever interCaribbean VG-THG for aerosoft Twin Otter Extended 300 pax. Feel free to comment and make suggestions. Manual install (easy) Enjoy !
  7. Hello everyone I dediced to become an artist ! This would be my first livery ever. I'm in teh process of fine tuning some elements. No pretention to be the exact reproduction of the real aircraft, but to give a good look and feel. What do you think ? Feel free to comment and make suggestions. Greg
  8. Hello Does anyone know about an Intercaribbean livery (existing or in the making) for the Twin Otter ? Thanks
  9. Dave I feel stupid. I have found the culprit. Nothing to do with LIRF, dawn or dusk or whatever. It is a freeware scenery covering all Italian islands that I found on AVSIM and taht I installed. It's compiled for FS2004. Not the best match with P3D. It is working perfectly fine now. Sory for teh disturbance. I think you can delete the whole thread. Greg & Thanks btw
  10. Hi Dave Thanks for your quick reply. My specs are as follows : Win10 Pro, i7 7900K, 16 Go, nVdia GeForce 1660. Computer is brand new. No tweaks, no overclocking. I use UTL v1.2 , and Orbx global+vector+LC as well. ChasePlane is running. nVidia drivers have been updated as per your request. I only experience this at Rome airport, and from what I saw only at dusk/dawn/night. I will check whether I still have this problem going forward. Amendments that have been made to LIRF v1.04: - changed the AFCAD for an AFCAD available in teh forum here - downloaded and installed the Cartayna files for GSX2 for LIRF Thanks Greg
  11. Hello everyone I experience CTDs when flying around / landing at Rome Mega Airport, mostly at dusk/night (less so during the day, but I can't exclude it would also happen). The Event Viewer shows as follows. Any guess ? I don't remember of any issue with P3D v4.4.

  12. Thanks Mathijs. I must be confusing with another aircraft then. Have a nice day
  13. Hello everyone Do yu have any sound when you use the brakes (or, to be precise, a brake sound when taxiing speed is nearing zero) ? I think there used to have a sound but I can't hear it anymore. Thanks
  14. Hello Bob Thanks for your reply. I have 1.05a, yes, and I did already apply the fixes (did it again with the file you indicated, just to be sure - btw, your file is misleading as it is named 1.02, and you only see it's for 1.05a when you read the readme.txt. Well, unfortunately, no change. Regarding the rotating PAPIs, the faulting file is LPMA_RWY-PAPI.bgl. I wanted to take a look deeper, so I decompiled that. Gosh, it's coded with SCASM !! Who is still using that code ? It's 15 years outdated ! Anyway, after very careful analysys, I came to the conclusion (and I solved the rotating PAPIs issue) that, for whatever reason (maybe because you are asking P3D v4 to read FS98), any time you rotate the reference (meaning giving an angle vs North) (by way of the Transform_Mat instruction), the first object placed with that angle will be moving. Couldn't believe it ! So the way I got it OK was to create a very small object (invisible) for the same angle as the PAPIs. This small object is certainly rotating somewhere, but I can't see it ! I can provide the coding lines if you need. Regarding the disappearing runway, the faulting file is LPMA_OBJ-Ground.bgl. I suspect that the platform in the north of the runway is not perfectly aligned with the ground at the apron level. So the runway disappear above the platform. To prove that, I created a LPMA_OBJ-Ground-elevated bgl (at 10 cm above ground) and now I can see the runway everywhere. Well, the outcome is pretty ugly to be honest as the runway object is partilly transparent so you can see the other one below. I'm not happy with his workaround. Wanna pass this on to the developpers and see what they could do ? Many thanks
  15. Good morning again In addition to my previous post, please note that I already applied the two latest available fixes (the one for the meshes and the one for the objects). Thanks
  16. Hello everyone Just spent a few hours flying around Madeira. I have Madeira Evolution X on P3D v4.4 + OrbX Global Base+Vector+LC on Windows 10. PC is i7 3Ghz with 16 Go memory. No specifc mesh + I followed all the instructions on the Meash specific thread. Indeed, no mesh issue visually. Mesh is set at 1m, scenery at Dense. I still have two problems though : 1/ runway is disappearing when taxig on the runway to take off from runway 23 (so basically when you are above the platform) > conflict between LPMA_OBJ-Ground.bgl and LPMA_OBJ-Hidden.bgl ? (please note that the runway also disappear when flying over, but more randomly) 2/ very "funny" behaviour with PAPI on both side (05 and 23), but only when heading 23 or so : PAPI lights are moving (more precisely, they are rotating !!) - See attached pictures with a close eye If you guys have any ide to solve those two points, you would make my day. Thanks
  17. Hello everyone I bought the scenery yesterday, just started to try it and I get very random peaks/shards (I don't know how to call that) appearing most of the time in random locations (see picture). You cannot collide with them you pass through.... I'm running P3D v4.4 with Orbx Global and Orbx Vector and Europe LC. I was flying Aerosoft CRJ 700. AI Traffic is UTL. I have ChasePlane as well but don't see why it would interfere. My PC is a Core i7 7700T, GeForce 960, 16 Gb RAM, Windows 10. Thanks
  18. Hello everyone Sorry I don't know where to post that so feel free to repost in the most appropriate section. I have A318/319 Pro running on P3Dv4.3. I created a route from EDDM to LIPZ with cruise FL280 (over the Alps) and it goes pretty well until I approach CRZ ALT. There it freezes when the tablet in unfolded and crashes to desktop. I don't have any add-on scenery on this section. Any guess ? Thanks
  19. OK noted thanks Tom. Back to the initial point : do you plan to revise the doc ? I had a look at the ste-by-step guide for the previous version of Airbus A318/319 and it was pretty qualitative. Thanks

  21. Hello everyone ! Just bought the product and I very much enjoy flying the Airbus A319. However, what a disappointment with the step by step guide ! Numbering of the explanatory footnotes is not consistent with the numbering of the different steps, order of the checklists is not consistent with the order in the simulator, making it very difficult to follow, pictures are not always for the EDDF/EGLL flights (some are from the previous version of teh document, where it was a Nice-Innsbruck flight), a lot of words are missing .... See by yourself in the attachment. Aerosoft, was passiert ? Thanks anyway Copyright protected material removed! Please do not post copyright protected material publicly in the forum.
