    P3D v4 Interested in Airport Design - Where Do I Begin

    Hi Folks, Look at PSP instead of PS - been using it since the Jasc days - and it has just about everything PS has - at a reasonable price - without the monthly extortion fee... Regards, Scott

    Starting point for Paintkit

    Hi Vance, While I’ve used PSP since the Jasc days and I do model - I’ve never used FSDS... Yeah - FSDS must have some functions inside the modeling software that allows you to select parts or faces - then “map” them to a specific piece of texture real estate... The more sophisticated modeling...

    What is LUA? Does it work in FSX also?

    Hi Bill, Yeah - it's pretty handy for the end user as it gives us control of buttons and switches in the cockpit - that were unavailable by other means... You can also program macros to complete multiple tasks as well... For me - there are few things more annoying than having to drop my HOTAS...

    Spokane International Airport (KGEG)

    Hi Folks, Yeah - I believe ORBX bought Bonner’s Ferry from Jim Robinson (who’s been MIA for a very long time - hope all is well with him) - then Alex finished it for ORBX... I haven’t followed this project - but if a substantial amount of the work was complete - and the author was interested -...

    P3D v4 P3D V4 shading issue

    Hi Folks, Wow - the side by side comparison is dramatic... I always thought the visuals in P3D were suppose to improve on FSX ? Looking at the images - it appears that there is specular shine present in FSX VC that’s not apparent in the P3D VC... Given that it’s the same model is there...

    Airport Ground Navigation - The search for eternal peace

    Hi... One other option is Alex’s “Little NavMap” if you have a laptop or second machine handy (otherwise you need to toggle between apps) - it has a full moving map feature - it reads the actual scenery database file from your FS setup - and if you zoom in close enough - shows the equivalent of...

    Airport Ground Navigation - The search for eternal peace

    Hi... Not sure if this suits your needs - if you happen to live in and fly in North America - there’s a great FREE tablet EFB app called “Fltplan GO”... It’s a real world EFB for Win/Apple/Android tablets that works with P3D/FSX/XP - that’s the only FREE source of georeferenced approach plates...

    Bahamas Photoreal

    Hi Bernardo, Every new shot you post - while seeming impossible - improves on the last - what a complete work of art... The Bahamas - from a RW pilots perspective - is the one destination EVERY East Coast US pilot aspires to visit... Put a group of East Coast Pilots together and at some point...

    P3D v4 Basic Tutorial to Create New Mesh ?

    Hi Gary, Thanks as always - yeah - been improving an area around KIWI - Wiscasset ME - just for my own amusement - and some of the hills seem a bit off when comparing to the photo terrain I put down - I realize I could work it with flattens - but since moving to P3D I've used nothing but...

    P3D v4 Basic Tutorial to Create New Mesh ?

    Hi Folks, I've messed with DEM over the years - is there a basic tutorial around somewhere on the steps involved to create a mesh in P3D ? I found only one video - in English - but that gentleman used Global Mapper for file processing and I'm not $500.00 worth of interested in this process -...

    P3D v4 Shiny Home ?

    Hi Rick, Hah - thanks - I figured out the setting about the same time you posted - never used MCX to make models before - used bat scripts and MakeMDL... I set it to 0,0,0 and the shine is gone will try 20,20,20 as well... Hmm - I see Simdirector - just tried it - first time ever - need to...

    P3D v4 Shiny Home ?

    Hi Folks, Still trying to get my feet under me with P3D modeling - as I haven't really done this since FS9... A very basic test model attached - I have specular at 0 in my modeling software since I keep getting a shiny house in the sim... How do I make it not so shiny ? There's no alpha on the...

    P3D v4 Tiling Textures - MCX Optimization

    Hi Folks, Question - my modeling software has a limitation where I can only tile (repeat) a texture - when it's the full texture - I can't crop an area of a texture sheet and then tile it... I know the importance of draw calls on performance... I've messed with the material manager in MCX and...
