Re: TrueSky clouds sharpness

Here's a screen capture of 2048 cumulus-like clouds that I generated independent of P3d5 using the trueSky SDK: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dtu2gvj2rjwd656/trueSky%202048%20cumulus.jpg?dl=0 I really don't see much difference between this screenshot and what I see in P3d5. Also, Simul recommends using ...

Re: Plans to further develop ATC?

When you consider that a certain upcoming flightsim (soon to be released) has ATC that is only slightly improved over what's in FSX and P3d5, you must realize that big improvements to the stock ATC are not a high priority for flightsim developers. There are two reasons. First, there are a number of ...

Re: LandClass/Vector Data

@Max Perry Here's another minor update needed. The tower frequency in P3d5 for the stock EGKA (Shoreham, UK) is 125.400, when in fact, the real world airport uses the 8.33 KHz frequency of 125.405. Here's the official listing for EGKA: https://www.aurora.nats.co.uk/htmlAIP/Publications/2020-07-16-AI...

Re: Default Airports in P3Dv5

One of the problems is that the airports were updated using online PDF terminal maps like the ones from Flightaware. The US maps are schematics, so that the building placement is way off. At least the runway numbering and taxiway designations are correct. LM should really use FS Earth Tiles to creat...

Re: P3d errors in event viewer across multiple modules

I've seen that exact error a couple times also. For me, it was generated only when P3d5 HF2 exits, so most users have no idea that an error has occurred unless they check the Windows event viewer. It's probably a bug and I'd assume that LM staff have seen this thread and will look into it.

VOXATC replaces the P3d stock ATC and AI traffic control. VOXATC works with fsaerodata navigation database updates, SODE jet...

Re: Old excludes not working in V5?

3rd party airports that were designed for V4 have exclusion polygons to hide the default scenery objects in the P3d4 stock airports. In p3d5, a number of airports were revised and the excludes are now in the wrong location. You either need a version of the 3rd party airport designed specifically for...

Re: Speedtree color and density

In P3d5, the performance impact of Speedtrees is lessened. Is there any thought been given to fixing the bright green textures? I fixed the billboard textures for 5 of the deciduous tree species with Photoshop for my own personal use, so it isn't that difficult to improve the realism.
