Re: Something is wrong with how P3D reads my addon xml entries

The scenery_add-ons.xml is not a user file. I suspect P3D uses this file to keep track of what add-ons are the same as last session and what has changed. <SceneryCRC>-1586901003</SceneryCRC> The CRC is simply a kind of hash code that is used to define an instance of an add-on set of files. If any of...

Re: Something is wrong with how P3D reads my addon xml entries

Agree with Ed. The entries in the scenery.cfg will be 'lower' on the library list than those using an add-on.xml, and the order of add-on.xml entries using the self discovery method (the add-on.xml is in a documents add-on folder) will be in the order read such that last read (last subfolder and las...

Re: Ground surface friction

Any idea what specific changes PMDG made to change this on their 747? I'd like to be able to make my own adjustments if need be to make it work at least somewhat more realistically. They took the ground rolling resistance effect outside of P3D and use their own code to provide the simulation. This ...

Re: P3D v4.4 won't start after uninstalling FSX.

Check for the possibility that you have addons in P3D that were in a FSX folder, the splash screen followed by closing can be caused by a problem with an addon (wrong or missing path to the addon files for example).

Re: Loading Terrain Hangs At 6% After Cloning SSD

First please do not delete configuration files unless recommended by support. To remove addon sceneries you can uncheck the addon in the addon or scenery library windows, no need to remove anything. This make it easy to add back the products that were not causing a problem. If you delete configurati...

Re: Ground surface friction

The "ground surface friction" modeled in P3D and ESP/FSX/FS9 before it is a very simple example of how to build an arcade game. The problem is not complex for a mechanical engineer and it has little to do with friction unless you are in a skid at which point you broke contact are now sliding and now...

Re: V4.4 compatible addons

Surprising, because the Orbx PNW region is one of my favorites. If you have specific complaints please share them with Orbx. They are good at using customer feedback to improve their products. I'm not sure what you define as P3Dv4 compatible, if you mean that the product uses only the v4 SDK and com...

Re: Flightbeam KPDX Install

Just purchased KPDX from flightbeam. Installed and re-installed it 4 times because I can not enable it in oprepoa3rDv4. It is in the scenery library and shows the tick box unchecked. But It also will not give me the option to enable KPDX. Any ideas why I have this problem? Thank You Walt The Flight...

Re: p3dv4 not completely shutting down

P3D shutdown is slow. Sure it is gone from the screen and taskbar but it will remain running in the task manager for up to a minute on my machine, and I suspect this can vary. There are a few addons that have modules that don't shut down on their own but rather need P3D to terminate their service, a...

Re: Slew mode

This is pretty common Randy, it usually is due to axis being assigned such as joystick. I delete all of the axis assignments for slew mode because I do not use the joystick to move around... I only use the keyboard.

Re: Offset Runways

I don't follow this. If your localizer needle is centered you should land in on the center line, unless it is an LDA or offset LOC and Vancouver is not. Put the airplane on the runway, set up the NAV to the ILS frequency. Is the LOC centered? It is very common for the magnetic course of the LOC and ...

Re: Acknowledgment of blurry terrain problems?

My frame rate is locked at 20 fps and the animation is as fluid as can be. I can run into blurry terrain textures IF my settings are maximum and IF I am using high resolution texture exponent 10 setting and IF I run at x4 simulation rate for several hours. It doesn't happen often but it reveals that...

Re: Crashing Mid-Flight

I cannot picture what you are trying to describe, please provide much more detail because I think this will reveal the problem. For example, you say first the speed goes to zero (is this indicated airspeed or ground speed or both?) but then you say the airplane flips (I don't know what that is) and ...
