Re: v4.2 New helicopter issue

Using the procedures in the Quick Start Guide, I can sometimes get the engines started. However, sometimes they just won't start or at least not all of them. I often have trouble with the light gray starter switches staying down when I click them. If they pop back up before you have moved the PCL fu...

CH-53E cockpit gauges inop

The CH-53E Engine RPM, Rotor RMP, and Torque gauges do not function.
The white bars are frozen and do not move.

Nr, Q, and ENG RMP seem to be pretty important things to know when flying a helicopter.

MH-60R/S inoperative cockpit gauges

The TGT, Q (torque), and Nr gauges are completely inoperative on the "new" MH-60R and MH-60S.
The indicator bars are missing and the digits are frozen.

Re: H-60 Blackhawk cockpit indications missing

There is an On/Off switch toward the center of the indicators to turn on the digital displays. Does this fix the problem you are seeing? If not can you post a screenshot of the issue? Thanks Rob, the digits switch turns on the digits. :) I'm still at a loss in the UH-60M cockpit. http://fsfiles.org...

H-60 Blackhawk cockpit indications missing

My default Blackhawks are all missing performance data in their cockpit displays. MH-60K and all other Virtavia variants are missing the digital numbers for the cockpit indicators, Nr, Q, TGT, ... UH-60Q from LM has the same cockpit and issues. UH-60M (glass cockpit) is missing all the indicator bar...

Re: How to distribute/organize P3D files and add-ons

SSD 500 GB for my P3D installation + my Add-ons 500 GB may not be enough space, depending on your scenery and if you have multiple P3D versions installed. I have a 1TB SSD with both P3Dv3 & P3Dv4 installed on it. I only have 297GB free. My add-ons = 53Gb (FreeMeshX, various aircraft, a few freeware...

Re: Windows SSD getting full

You can set up Windows so that your "Documents" folder (Photos, Music, Downloads ... whichever you want) is stored on the drive of your choice. I have Win10 on a SSD C: and my libraries are all located on HD E: It's been long enough that I don't remember how to do it, but it wasn't hard. I just Goog...

Re: Best hard drive option please

I have so many addons for P3DV4 I can not fit all on my 250 SSD drive Just wanted to mention that SSD vs HD should not affect your FPS. It will just affect your load time a bit. SSDs are the future, but don't underestimate your space requirements. Space taken up by add-ons can add up quickly! I hav...

Re: Win 10 KB4038788 Update crashes my P3D v3

Just as a data point for LM, the latest Windows update seems to have fixed the CTD bug for me. :) I had been getting a CTD after every flight loaded. I've only tried two flights, but both worked, takeoff to landing. 1. Default F-35 at KLSV (Orbx Global Base & openLC North America) 2. MilViz MD530 at...

Re: Windsocks

Non-functioning windsocks in P3D, the "new and better" flight simulator, are a big problem IMHO. Especially since they worked in the "old" simulators, FS9 & FSX. Knowing the wind direction and velocity isn't just some nice to have bonus, it is fundamental data for all takeoff...

Re: ATC menu stopped opening

I found the problem! The "OBS indicator (select)" function closes the ATC window. I had mapped a switch on my throttle to the "OBS indicator (select)" command, there is not a keyboard key assigned. The switch was left on, thus continually repeating the "OBS indicator (select...

[RESOLVED] ATC menu stopped opening

My ATC menu window has stopped opening. I had the "ATC menu (dispaly/hide)" function mapped to a button on my throttle, a button on my MFD, in addition to the default keyboard keys. It had been working just fine, but suddenly it just won't open. I deleted my throttle & MFD button assig...

Recovering default water textures

I bought Rex 4 Texture Direct. I backed up my default P3D texture files and started using Rex textures. Unfortunately, I've accidentally hit the back-up textures button in Rex and overwrote the default P3D texture backup. Is there a way to recover the default P3D textures without an entire reinstall...
