The option does stay set when I export the P3Dv2 and FSX models. Was this option removed in P3Dv4 or is this...

    P3D v4 Photoreal Blendmasks no longer transition smoothly.

    I've had this issue since day 1 of owning P3Dv4. Is this an issue with P3Dv4 itself (as a software) or could this be some sort of incompatibility? I'm surprised I haven't seen more posts on this issue, however it would make since if it's only an issue on my end.. The Blendmask is an 8bit...

    P3D v4 ADE 1.75 places PAPIs higher over terrain

    I wanted to edit EBLG so that the parallel runways (23L and 23R) with the same ILS frequency (109.35) didn't clash and prevent any ILS reception. The only thing I did was edit the ILS frequency, then compile, then install the bgl as addon scenery (using the addon.xml method LM require). This...

    Hello! Has anyone here from the Forum an idea why the Headtracker FaceTrackNoIR V200 with the new Prepar3DV4 no longer functions? It is probably because both programs communicate via Simconnect. This new Simconnect version is 64-bit, right? The installation of the outdated Simconnect version...
