    Just installed P3DV4 and seems it is working good.

    Question ;
    1 = Do i need a new FSUIPC, i have FSUIPC4

    2 = I try to call fuel truck and it tell me there is no fuel truck at this Airport ! but i try different Airport and different parking place and it say the same thing...

    3 = i cannot get P3DV4 to connect to ADE 175

    Still testing my installation...

    To 1 : you must download and install FSUIPC 5 (full install 5.121b, then install update to 5.121c or later). P3D v4 is a 64bits program, and needs 64bits addons
    To 2 : Do not know, I am not using that feature... Which airports?
    To 3 : Sorry, I do not remember how ADE is connecting to the sim...

    Hi Phil;

    OK; i download FSUIPC5 and it work good and now i can connect to ADE 175

    First to call the fuel truck «shift F» , you must be at a parking spot, and not all airports have fuel.
    But i tried at different International Airport that have fuel and it say " no fuel truck at this Airport" !

    I created small Airport with fuel and fuel truk taxiway and work good in FSX, but i install the same Airport in P3DV4 and it say " no fuel truck at this Airport " !

    Sorry, am not in a position to give any advice on that, as I do not use fuel truck thingy, but it does not work at my side either... Tested KHOU, KSLC, KORD, but no joy!

    In v 4.1, on a default airport, I can call the fuel truck, get an acknowledge message, and after a while it shows up and does its job. Perhaps try upping scenery complexity and ground vehicle traffic?

    Well... Pretty confused now! How did I miss that one?
    My Airport Vehicle Density was set to 0... Pushing the cursor to the right did bring the fuel truck...
    Thank you for the info

    Slowly i'm getting better with P3DV4

    One more question;

    I've dowloaded a light effect from another site for testing and it work at 50%

    when i fly a few nm out and come back eastward it is Ok
    but when i fly a few nm out and come back westward the light is off...

    I don't know if it is a setting in P3DV4 or a probleme with the light effect.
