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.

More info;

After more days of recherche, i found that the probleme is realated to 2 effect that don't like each other.

It is the effect « fx_LDN_Light.fx» witch is the "Dynamic Lightning" (found here highter) and the effect « Cntrl_KilaueaEruption.fx» witch is the volcano effect.

When i install only the light effect, everything is OK and the light work nice.

But when i put the 2 effects in the same scenery, when i start P3DV4 the light is there but when the volcano start and i change the heading the light dissapear !

Could someone test my effects to see if they have the same probleme ?

My probleme with the dynamic light is fixed.:)

Now i'm trying to install a GPWS gauge «callout alt» in heavy aircraft. And was wondering if someone could tell me or show me where to start, or download this gauge.
