  1. I've seen this happen at a couple of sceneries and with different aircraft when the Mesh Terrain resolution was set to a value greater than 5m.
    Try to reduce your Mesh terrain to 5m and see if you still encounter those drops.

    Other planes I've seen this so far (for reference, maybe interesting for others as well):
    KORD - A330/B767/B74x

    ELLX - B74x

    MKJS - A330/B767


    All of them were addon sceneries.

    I don't quite know what exactly caused this yet, but in all cases removing the addon sceneries solved the sudden drops. They must somehow be related to aircraft size vs mesh terrain setting vs scenery.

    Sorry Mathijs but that's wrong and a sign that Aerosoft is not familiar with the new v5 version of Prepar3D and DX 12. With DX 12 comming up it is a developement issue how much of VRam the addon will use, with DX11 it was not. For me I don't have the A330, i do have the PMDG747 for v5  i'm afraid but a friend of mine does have the bus. We both using P3Dv5 with H1, we do have absolutly the same hardware too. GraKa NVidia 1080 GTX 8Gb Vram with the newest driver. We do have all the slider and other settings at the same way. We both have LatinVFR Miami for P3Dv5 and when we start at Miami Gate F16, me with PMDG 747 and my friend with Aerosoft A330, I do have an VRam use of 4,5 GB and my friend has 6,3 GB. So it is not a question to asked Lockhead Martin but you ! And it's not a good way to send customers to onather developer before you understand the new engine right. Sorry but this is my opinion.

    Regards Axel


    You're of course entitled your opinion Axel, but that doesn't mean it's correct in terms of the facts concerned.

    For instance having "absolutely the same hardware" while using two different computers does by no means mean you'll get the same performance, unless you would have an identical windows version, identical programs running at the same time, use Windows in the identical way, have an identical flight loaded, etc.

    You can have the same hardware and get different results due to different software. Probably even without knowing you have different software.

    Unless you have the same hardware, both have a totally fresh windows reinstallation and only have a vanilla P3D you can simply not compare things.

  3. Hi Laurie,


    99% of Alpha Floor activations I saw with customers so far were caused by a rotation which is far to quick, thus causing a stall right on rotation.


    The last 1% is usually caused by windshifts from an erratic weather addon which causes the speed to fall below minimum during takeoff.

  4. It happens in P3Dv4/5 with Cologne Bonn Professional.

    The DME for the ILS of runway 32R and 24 is not implemented. Bug.


    14L has a DME though but shouldn't have one.


    Clear scenery bug, not aircraft or database related.

  5. "If you have any more questions feel free to open a new topic."


    Okay, so I open a new topic.


    We all know the airport will not get a redesign by Aerosoft and the GAP team is retired.


    However Olivers answer does not address many questions asked before the topic got closed.


    Once again:

    "the wrong N3/N5 signage"


    That taxiway is called N3 since 2010. The original scenery being developed in 2015/2016 is not an excuse. Please correct the bug.


    "Why does the terminal behind the C gates have such a bad resolution, both at daylight and especially during night time, while the A and B gates have a rather good resolution?"

  6. Die ISA definiert auf Meereshöhe eine Temperatur von 15° und eine Abnahme von 2°C pro 1000ft (nicht m!).

    Die ISA DEV ist die Abweichung von ISA. In den meisten Flugplanlayouts wird die ISA DEV am TOC irgendwo auf den ersten Seiten zu finden sein.

    Du kannst sie aber natürlich auch manuell ausrechnen.

    FL280 würde eine abnahme von 56° gegenüber dem Boden unter ISA Bedingungen bedeuten.

    Also 15°C-56°C. Die ISA Temperatur wäre also -41°C.

    Dein FMC will jetzt die ISA Deviation, also die Abweichung der realen Temperatur von der ISA Temperatur auf deinem FL haben.


    Dein Wind Data Block sagt Du hast -43° in FL280. Die ISA Temperatur wäre -41°. Es ist also 2 Grad kälter als in der ISA. Also ist die ISA DEV -2.

  7. Hi Oliver,


    the apron layout of Frankfurt around the V12x stands is incorrect.

    The coloured lines are missing and the N3 taxiway signs read N5 instead of N3.


    As I'm recently controling Frankfurt on VATSIM I have already seen a lot of pilots getting confused over the wrong N3/N5 signage and all of the Regional Group Frankfurt would highly apprechiate this to be updated.

    As the productpage advertises "Original taxiway signs as well as new taxiways" I would expect those taxiways to be modelled since they existed two years before the product was released.

    Below is a screenshot from a May 2017 satelite picture of the affected area, compared to one of Mega Airport Frankfurt Professional:






    Finally a question on the C gates: Why does the terminal behind the C gates have such a bad resolution, both at daylight and especially during night time, while the A and B gates have a rather good resolution? Have a look especially at those windows, but also the general front of the terminal.
    Are they 1:1 portovers of the original FS2004 scenery?






  8. Why should it be closed for landing?

    In fact at the moment 07C/25C is the only open runway at EDDF.


    Outside of Corona times the center runway is also used for landings to shorten taxi times when the traffic flow allows. Especially on 25 swingover are often flown from the ILS25L to a visual 25C.

    Thanks, does the aerosoft a320 work well with fsx atc? Ive been desperate to try it out just haven't got round to it


    Never tried it with FSX ATC, I either provide my own ATC or fly online.

    So are you saying glide slope cant be captured until the localiser is?

    Whilst we are here, how do you determine which altitude to put in at top of descent? I usually aim for *2500 on the mcdu or whatever rounded figure waypoint is just before the runway. I don't think that is correct procedure is it?


    I insert whatever level ATC clears me for. All I do is to request descent, which level I get cleared to is up to ATC.

    This is the dark view I get in the A330 VC cockpit without using any shader or stuff like that! Additionally I didn´t change any light settings in P3Dv4.5. Its just the dark thing after installing. 



    Your whole simulator looks like you're wearing very, very strong sunglasses. The Airbus just fits into the image, doesn't it?


    Go outside, climb up a tower, a hill or something and have a look across the landscape. Is it as dark as your sim? It most certainly isn't.

    So no surprise the Airbus is much darker than it should be as well if your whole simulator is.

    Thanks for the advice, good to learn something new about papi lights. I cant remember what was on the fma, but ap was disengaged by myself to fly the approach manually. LS was still on so I imagine the attitude indicator was telling me to pitch up to find the glide slope. Next time I will take a screenshot, but all was normal just disengaged the AP early thinking it wouldnt find the glide slope as it was just after the final turn. Is there a way you can capture the glide slope before final turn? As far as I know if you hit approach facing away from the runway the Localiser is wrong way round and plane will go all over the place. Its as if when on final turn you have to be spot on other wise g/s will slip away by the time you turn into an acceptable localiser angle 


    The A320 series does not have a localizer backcourse feature, you can hit the APPR button at angles greater than 90° as well. However it will not capture the glideslope before you have localizer capture. So there'd be no use doing so.


    The FMA reading is vital, the FMA is the way the aircraft communicates with you. Just because you selected something on the FCU it would by far not automatically be doing that. You need to check it's doing what it's supposed to do. As an example you might have hit Approach at a wrong point in time and it did arm, but not engage. The FMA will tell you. The FCU won't.

    Never ever rely on the automation doing something which you have not 100% confirmed it is actually doing. The moment you fail to check the automation is the moment where the aircraft flies you and not the other way round.

    For example, in my last flight, the papi lights were all white, yet the plane was telling me to pitch up


    I found that in most sceneries the PAPI does actually not give you proper information in P3Dv4. Addon airports as well as default.
    In real life, at least in our 737, we often get three reds on short final which is due to the PAPI being calibrated for the eye height of the largest aircraft normally using the airport.

    The glideslope is also not positioned correctly relative to the aiming point in most addon sceneries.


    What was the FMA when the plane told you to pitch up? Best would always be if you included screenshots of such situations.


    Generally both pitch and thrust need to be stable. ANY aircraft can be flown by pitch and power setting. Set a certain thrust (in the small Airbusses that's normally Gross Weight-4 = N1) and a certain pitch attitude and the airplane will fly a certain speed and descent angle once stabilized.


    If you use Autothrust or not is an airline philosophy. Boeing and Airbus say no. Then you have crashes like the MAX crashes where the pilots simply forgot the thrust at TOGA until impact.

    Most airlines here in Europe have the philosophy to either turn both (AP and AT) on or off at the same time.

    I agree on that, the lack of an A330-200 is the reason I haven't bought the A330 so far. To me the A330-200 is just as much A330 as the 300, they both need to be included in the package to call it a complete package. I'm not buying a package that isn't complete.


    Your choice, free market, free decicions.

  15. There will not be an FSX version of the A330, sorry.

    Write to support@aerosoft.com, maybe they can do something for you. Here in the forums it will not be possible to help you.
