    P3D v4 Tooltips

    Good morning, I've noticed that in a lot of my P3D default GA aircraft, I'm unable to see the altimiter value on the calibration knob (i.e. 29.92) when I hover the mouse over the knob. In FSX, this displayed fine. Is it a matter of adjusting a panel file for the aircraft that aren't working...

    Avatar Design

    Good morning, I've been trying out the Avatar feature in P3D4 with the default characters. However, I'd like to design my own Avatar, as the default "Man in blue jeans" one is pretty basic. Is this possible? If so, what software do I need to make it work? I've used human modeling tools like...

    P3D v4 [SOLVED] How to do animations ?

    Hey everyone, I know this is an old forum, but I I've been looking to get into creating animated (moving) models for P3D4. However, if I understand correctly after viewing Autodesk's site, 3DS max - the typical software used for this - costs over $1000 a month to use it. I'm in no position to...

    P3D v4 Placing objects

    Hi Gary, I have the payware version of Google Sketchup. I didn't create the models - I got them from the 3D Warehouse. Do I still have to do the File > Geo-Location process, or do the people that make the models usually do that when they upload them to the 3D Warehouse? I have the SDK, but...

    P3D v4 Placing objects

    Hi Gary, It's great to hear from you again! I stopped using FSX: SE due to a bunch of CTD's, so I switched to P3D4, and abandoned my previous projects . As for your suggestion about making sure the models are "Geo-Located" in Sketchup, how will I be able to determine this? The model is from...

    P3D v4 P3D Compatibility?

    Good afternoon, I just downloaded the latest version of ModelConverterX. After looking at the Release Notes on the site, I got the impression that it worked with P3D4. However, when I go into ModelConverterX, it only lists FSX and FS2004 as Simulator choices. Does the software actually work...

    P3D v4 Placing objects

    Good afternoon, I want to place some 3D buildings (restaurants, hotels, etc) from Sketchup into P3D4 - but not on an airport. Because of this, I don't think ADE is the right tool. What tool or software do I use to place an object at a specified location? Any help you can provide is...

    P3D v4 Addon Scenery Error

    Good morning, For the past week or so, P3d4 isn't accepting any of my addon scenery. It has never done this before in all the time I've been using the Simulator. Whenever I try to "point" the folder with all of the addon scenery (BGL's) I have into P3d's Scenery Library, I get errors that...

    P3D v4 Weapons

    Hi Roy, I checked out some of the aircraft on Sim Skunk Works' site, but they made it seem like their products are no longer available online. Are you sure that they're combat-enabled? Thanks again for the reply. Regards, Kevin Davis

    P3D v4 Weapons

    What reason are you referring to? That the VRS Tac Pack doesn't work with P3D Professional, or that you can add weapons with the SDK?

    P3D v4 Weapons

    Hi, I switched to P3D from FSX SE a couple months ago. However, one of the things I was interested in was the combat capability in aircraft such as Vertical Reality Simulations' Tac Pack. Unfortunately, before researching the addon for P3D Professional, I bought the F18 and Tac Pack products...

    Hi all, I'm using XP11 along with P3d, but I haven't been able to figure out how to update comm frequencies in XP11 to match their real-world counterparts Do I use WED to do this? For P3d & FSX, I accomplished this with ADE. Any help you can provide is appreciated. Regards, Kevin Davis .

    P3D v4 ADE & Navigraph Charts

    Hi fellow flight simmers & developers! I've been using Airport Design Editor (ADE) to update my airports in FSX, and now P3D4 because of too many CTD's with FSX. Since then, I've been updating the gate and jetway names at some of the airports, since the names in the Simulator are usually not...

    P3D v4 PMDG 737 Repaint

    Hi Tom, Sorry for the delayed reply. So IIUC, I should go to the PMDG Operations program and find a similar livery to what I'm trying to make. After that, I just need to copy the texture into the paint program I'm using, and make the desired changes. Am I on the right track here? Will I...

    P3D v4 PMDG 737 Repaint

    Hi all, I'm trying to make a livery for the PMDG 737 from scratch. However, I've looked at several YouTube videos, and all of them "assume" that the user has designed a livery already. I haven't done this, as I want to make a fictional livery. Is there any type of manual for how to do this...
