  1. ATC for P3Dv4.1

    Finally got PF3 working last week. Fantastic service. I kept getting into trouble with the installation so finally Dave March of On Course Software came on to Team Viewer and got it going for me! What a brilliant service. John
  2. OZx in Prepar3d v4

    Yep, 4.1 is available. Incidentally, all my previous scenery re-installed very nicely into 4.1 wirth only one exception; Power Projects. Got the pylons but the windfarms and Power Towers and steam effects refused. Mind you, it was taken from FS9 original scenery so I suppose I can't complain. Aircraft proved to be a bit of a problem at first but there's now a hell of a lot of them that have been updated to work with both 4 & 4.1. Just have to be a bit carefull that the model you choose is 4.1 friendly John
  3. When in the Orbx early days and I first got Australia, I was quite impressed. Times have changed though and even with the few upgrades over the years and the OZX and Ants enhancements, it still leaves a lot to be desired and has become a bit booring to fly over.. More detailed and accurate scenery will be very welcome. John
  4. Twin prop engine passenger aircraft required

    Hi Sue, Sorry, its taken me some time to reply. I've been busy re-installin P3Dv4.1 and all the scenery and getting stuff to work on it...the excellent PF3 ATC for example. If LM wants to convince people its a real training aid, they really should up their game on that. Thanks for this info' Sue. I've had the B-1900 but although I think probably the real aircraft is ok I didn't really like the way you had to fiddle with the P3D version. I'll certainly have a look at the BeechD18S Wheeled. Its a new aircraft on me. All the best. John
  5. ATC for P3Dv4.1

    I've been using the excellent On Course Software PF3 ATC for P3Dv3.4 and backwards but although I've tried to install and use their version for v4.1 and despite a series of correspondence with them, I simply can't get it to work in my sim'. I've had a look at Vox but it's not for me. Can someone suggest an alternative please? John
  6. FSX Power Projects

    Some of you fellers may still using old simulator products and might remember or actually have this program. I've had it workig quite nicely over photo scenery in P3D before but since I've moved back from to P3DV4 to P3DV3.4, although I've got the Pylons and Towers showing nicely, I can't get the wind turbines to show. Presently, I've tried it installed into World Scenery and also simply as an addon in the P3D Scenery Library where the Pylons and Towers are. Any ideas for me please? John
  7. Can anyone recommend a 60's onwards 20-26 passenger twin prop aircraft which'll work in P3Dv3.4 please? Thanks. John
  8. Austria

    Can anyone recommend a good photo scenery for Austria please.? I can find only one, in SimMarket. Its in two parts, east and west and hugely expensive. John
  9. Forum Test

    I got an: 'OOPs NOT FOUND' message. John
  10. The Shetlands

    I've just come across this discussion. I'm running P3Dv3.4 and have yet to come across any scenery that it won't show. As long as its in a named folder containg Scenery+ 'bgls' and where needed a Texture folder containing 'agn' od 'dds's', I've found it will load. I've even got the FS9 Objects and Obstacles in it. John
  11. United States

    I've just completed loading the whole of the United States in photo scenery covered over with Landscapes Textures. My goodness, what a difference it's made. Flying over what it actually looks like from the air is brilliand and knockes the default into a cocked hat! John
  12. EMB505 Phenom 300

    A question for the real techies and experts here please. I've had this aircraft before but have just reinstalled the version for P3DV4. However, each time I try to fly with it, it starts both engines and the left engine fires up and opens fully but the right one only opens up about 75% . I have the simulator set up to start with everything running and 'ready to fly so I don't think this should happen. As its a waste of time trying to ask Carenado anything and nothing I do in the drop down 'failures' section will correct it, I'm wondering if anyone here is familiar with this aircraft and can offer some advice. Many thanks. John
  13. Real World Weather

    Sue..I know that but ASP4 is lethal to my sim' and doesn't work and if the Hi-Fi experts can't find the answer I have no chance have I?! Hence my wish to find an alternative, or, if necessary wait until there's a P3DV4 version of FS Global. John
  14. Twin Otter

    Very helpful. Thanks all. I thought I had read the book but when I got into the 'plane, I realised I hadn't a memory or a clue! I'll work it out. John
  15. Live weather program wanted for P3DV4

    I've checked it out Dan and I don't think they've got a P3DV4 version out yet. They say they're working on a new update and they've already got a Beta but after my history with Hi-Fi starting with their Beta, I'm not prepared to take a chance. FSGlobal is a favourite wish at the moment but they are still working an their V4 Version. So, as usual with everything flight sim' related I'm having to wait!! John
