  1. Please have a read around the forums and you'll find answers....
  2. You can change all paths manually, if you run a quick search you'll surely also find out how.
  3. Ben, with no disrespect, but which aircraft do you fly? Little toyplanes aka Cessna 172 or Piper 28 in CAVOK conditions or real aircraft with hundrets of souls on board with thunderstorms close to the airport and gusts up to 45kt and more? This one's a real story, happened a couple of months ago. An about 20 year old aviation geek visited my flightdeck during boarding who happened to be a simmer as well with a couple thousand hours on VATSIM. He told me how much he loves Boeings NGX. I asked him what an NGX is. He looked strange at me seeing that we were sitting in a 737-800. Even after digging a bit deeper he did not seem to have a clue where the difference between a 737NG and a 737NGX is. Small hint as I'm sure there'll be some simmers around here who don't know either: One costs 80$ list price, the other 80.000.000$. Heck, he even spotted a "mistake" right away and without even bothering me with it he reset my MCP altitude from 5100ft to 5000ft. He was even kind enough to tell me I forgot to execute my FMC routing and did it for me without even asking. A very helpful guy! Weather at our destination was quite a bit bumpy with some 30kt crosswind.We made a textbooklanding. On centerline and on the aiming point with a positive touchdown. After landing this same guy came to my cockpit again and asked me what went wrong during landing that we made such an impact. Correct piloting technique, as every pilot would know, would have been to hold it off the ground, bleed off the speed and then touch down, however he could understand that as an FO I still needed to learn and no landing could be perfect. He could fully understand that it would have been hard for me to judge the height above the runway, since this only comes with experience. I was impressed, right from the passenger seat this 300h Cessna pilot knew exactly what went "wrong" during my landing, he even knew exactly how I can improve next time! Darn it, why did I not know all his expertise after spending a hundret thousand bucks on professional flight training and years of flying. Next time I'll have this gentleman land the plane for me, I am sure the accident investigators will rewrite major parts of the pilot training manuals after evaluating the flight data recorder from the burning wreckage in the trees next to the runway. Long story short, this is pretty much my opinion on the average flight simmer or Cessna pilot. I have absolutely nothing against these people, both simmers and general aviation pilots have great ideas about what they're doing in their respective field. Simmers usually have a broad understanding of aircraft systems while the average GA pilot has a good understanding of his Cessna and all associated piloting techniques. However: Just because you have an idea in ONE field of aviation you don't know it all. Even a 737 or A320 pilot will not be able to give a sound judgement of an A380's flight dynamics. It's different. Totally different. In fact: Every aircraft is different. Not even two 737's build within a week from one another fly exactly same. Therefore, with all due respect: If you don't at least have experience in airliners, let alone in widebodys or in fact A330's, please be so kind not to mislead other people by saying you're a pilot and you know it's not ok. On a sidenote, in my airline it is SOP to set the MCP altitude to the expected initial climb altitude +100ft until the clearance is obtained as a reminder that you're not yet cleared to climb up. The Route page is executed once the routecheck has been completed during the takeoff briefing, when both pilots are happy that everything has been entered correctly.
  4. (it's gonna be one of the last mondays of the year as well)
  5. Simply enter the weight in pounds and then change the unit to KG and simbrief will convert it automatically for you. There is no such thing as one realistic zoom factor. If you want it 100% realistic, the PFD, ND, etc. screens are about 20x20cm, so adjust your zoom to match the size on your monitor. If you don't have a home cinema set you'll probably rather just find something which suits your monitor. The wideviewsetting in the P3D options might be of interest for you as well if you say you can't zoom out far enough for your likings. Neither 8 nor 16x will work unless you get sufficeint frames (we're talking some 60fps or more for these). Up to 4x should work on most computers.
  6. No I can not and this line of discussion ends here. If you want to use something for personal purposes don't store it in a public domain. Sorry.
  7. Because it was part of a line of discussion which was removed. If you want to use a list for personal purposes I am sure you also have it stored somewhere locally. After release the previewtopic would have been deleted anyway, as it usually is the case. I am sorry you find it offensive if your post has been deleted, however this is a commercial forum and not a public one. Aerosoft decides what stands and what not.
  8. Did you fly American or United in the 777 when PMDG released theirs? We know almost everyone did, despite those airlines only have -200ER's. It's your personal choice if you want to wait, however the vast majority of flight simmers (including those die hard hardcore 12h holding near DXB guys) will in the end not care.
  9. You purchased access to the web client as well.
  10. No, we took several photos showing both, the open side window and the front window on the same picture. You clearly see a huge difference. Not just on the picture, but also sitting in the real plane and looking through it with your own eyes.
  11. What's the sense of it? All it controls is the volume of the ATC output, etc.
  12. Well, indeed they do, however by far not as much as you're showing. Indeed it is more of a subtle effect than any clearly visible reflection. Pictures can't capture this, you have to see it with your own eye.
  13. I say the same which I said ealier already. The difference between your photos and the screenshots is obvious. The white markings on the road are a little more reflective, but the concrete is not. The sun is right above the horizon in your pictures, so you get maximum reflectivity. And I see a huuuuge difference between the screenshot and your photos, even though in the screenshots the sun is even further up, meaning less reflections than if it was as far down as in the photos.
  14. Indeed, those are becoming paint in the a**. Close to all developers do them nowadays, but have you ever seen the sun reflect on a dry road, parking lot, etc. in this way? You haven't and you never will. Because it does not happen in real life.
  15. Hi, kaum eine Runway ist im echten Leben absolut gerade. Um nicht zu sagen eigentlich sind alle Runways krumm auf die eine oder andere Weise. Und an meine Aerosoft-Kollegen: Ja, auch schon bevor ich darauf gelandet bin!. Schick doch mal einen Screenshot, wie es bei dir aussieht.
  16. Hi Gero, in welchem Flieger denn? In der CRJ oder in der 748? In der 748 geht es über die ARPT Taste am EFIS control Panel. Dafür muss die Airport Database aktuell sein (siehe EFB manual) und es muss ein Flugplan im FMC executed sein. Dann wird für Departure und Arrival Airport eine entsprechende Anzeige geschaltet. Die CRJ kann kein Flughafendiagramm auf dem ND anzeigen, dort gibt es nur die Möglichkeiten über die Charts im EFB.
  17. While a full reinstall can never be wrong a client only update should do.
  18. Luckily in real life this isn't as much of a problem for airliners as it is in the military since we have all those lovely lights around in the airport which light everything up perfectly fine. Hey, we often don't even use the domelight on the ground since everything is lit up completly already by the airports flood lights. Unfortunately though Lockheed does not model the lights scattering from objects, so the dynamic lights in P3D are rather limited. I'm hoping Microsoft will address this in their new sim, but we'll have to see about it. There neither confirmation nor denial
  19. Hi, the problem here is that P3D doesn't make a difference between the aircraft being in the air or on the ground. We evaluated some possible solutions here in the past, however we could simply not make out something definitive which would work for everyone.
  20. Ich glaube Du verwechselst hier etwas. Die PMDG 747-8 hat eine moving Map auf dem ND, in der der gesamte Airport angezeigt wird. Diese wird aus dem AFCAD deiner Szenerie generiert und hat weder mit Navigraph, noch mit NavDataPro irgendetwas zu tun. Diese Map ist unabhängig von allen Navdaten, sondern basiert einzig auf dem AFCAD des Flughafens. Sie wird also sowohl mit Addonflughäfen, als auch mit default Flughäfen funktionieren. Die CRJ kann dir die Charts aus NavDataPro bzw. Navigraph anzeigen und kann dir dein Flugzeugsymbol über die Chart legen (das kann die PMDG 747 nicht!). Das sind zwei grundverschiedene Features, das eine ist Teil des Navigation Displays der 747, das andere ist ein Chartviewer mit Möglichkeit deine Flugzeugposition über diese Chart zu legen.
  21. It's right in your customer account where you downloaded the aircraft.
