    I have had all of Win10 I wish to put up with. It has made some processes I am used to null and void, it has caused anomalies in the Sims (both FSX and P3D_V4) and it has caused me to stop scenery work because the utilities I use, that I am comfortable with and that I will not move away from. . .less than productive. I will not go into specifics because it will only open this thread up to a debate that I care nothing about. I never in my life thought I would ever hear myself say this but. . .I'm an old man, I know what I like and what I have experienced with Win10 and I don't care for it in relation to Flight Simulator and all it's processes. If I was using it only for word processing and such I probably wouldn't have an issue with a few glitches. . .but it's messing with what I enjoy and...

    Hi Landing is a lot more art than science - meaning that there are few foolproof instructions to make everything work out. Make sure that you are operating the airplane in a good weight configuration - well below full gross - you might try no passengers and half fuel. I try to set up an approach in the Beech with mixtures rich, props full forward (100%), speed a little less than 100kts and a descent of about 500 FPM using at least 1 notch of flap. At around 500 feet AGL (above ground or in this case water level) I try to set up a speed of 80 - 85kts, a descent rate of 300FPM and one notch less than full flap. You will need a bit of power to maintain this approach speed. At a point where you feel the water is beginning to rush up ease back on the control column while watching the 80 kt...

    BendyFlyer started a thread Win some Lose some. in DX10
    Well this is not a complaint about Steves DX10 but a lesson learned about low end systems and FSX. After much consideration I obtained the DX10 Fixer and installed it on my system. Here is the outcome, it did everything it claimed, so 10/10 for that. The changes were great, particular the shadows which the Fixer even had showing in older Legacy aircraft quite well and I really love the cloud shadows on the ground and water. Overall it was wonderful and I was very satisfied BUT and here is the BUT, it killed my sim performance to the point of being almost unusable with DX10 selected. My FPS dropped from locked 30 to 6 and sometime even 2. There was no tearing or graphic flashes, just slow slow slow. I investigated a number of tweaks I had no considered before but they only...

    Bitcoin? BAH! Etherium? BAH! Gold? BAH! Silver? BAH! I buy all the tinfoil I can get my hands on. Why? Because when the internet collapses, the markets collapse, the economies collapse, and governments collapse, the people will all be wondering what happened. This will lead to massive speculation and conspiracy theories. What do people really need in such times? Tinfoil! They need lots and lots of tinfoil for the construction of their hats. :biggrin-new:

    It's true that the more you use a kit the easier it becomes. But 4 door hinges consisting of 5 pieces EACH plus one of those pieces is used twice! Sheesh! I had to make four separate 'detective' layers to isolate the hinges. I could go on.. Detail is great, I'm all for it, but where do you stop? I've done quite a few MV aircraft but none have been so anal as the Beaver. :biggrin-new: EDIT: At least it's not as bad as Carenado's mangled offerings

    Love that restored cockpit with the Trig TY91/92 radio controls. Modern comms with minimal footprint. I'm guessing that navigation is by a portable GPS.

    Well that makes three (and thanks all for posting), but it doesn't sound like there's a lot of enthusiasm for a forum.

    Hello Smilo, Me too... I think that one of the requirements for an inserted component is that it has to be smaller that the one into which it is to be inserted. Thus, my plan is to make the nacelle in 3 instead of 2 different sections - one that fits into the wing without portruding forwards, a middle section and then the nacelle-nose, which will be jump-planed with the engine bitmap and the propeller. Let´s see how that goes. I seem to remember a "punch out" option, possibly only available in AD2k2, whereby you could cut out shapes from a plane or part, but maybe it would only be for windows. I´ll have to investigate that a bit. Cheers, Aleatorylamp

    Graphics are not a problem for me as I enjoy a lot the CitationX. The Xtreme LJ25D is far much better than the Lionheart(I have it too)and is a faithful rendition of this bird. It deserves the attention of people looking for a very good bizjet. If you take the Eaglesoft CitationX, I suggest you to login at Eaglesoft too. I forget to mention that Bjoern made excellent mods for the Flysimware LJ35A. Are ready to cruise at M0.92:applause:? Regards Pat

    I believe that the crews called it the Cygnus (latin for Swan) after the tradition of Lockheed naming aircraft after celestial bodies back then. Project pilot Jack Weeks came up with the name, and I thought it fitting to call it that rather than the programme name of Oxcart.

    Hello, I need advices/instructions for landing. So far, they always bounce. I wonder what I am doing wrong ? Looks like at the very end, the plane stalls. I feel bad (and my passengers are unhappy) Gérard
