Updating to 4.5 Do I need to install content.msi?

Hi, I did the update from 4.4 to 4.5 by updating the client msi only. That is what the instructions said. However, I wonder am I missing out on any changes by not updating the content? What exactly is contained in the content thats new?

Default KLGA Laguardia airport problem

Has anyone experienced this with P3D 4.4 default airport LaGuardia Airport? The walls of the airport are there, but no complete building. I am using Orbx vector and landclass, and Dwerzecki Design NYC scenery. The airport however is default. I am using Ultimate Traffic Live for traffic. https://i.im...

Menu bar suggestion

Hi guys, I would like very much to be able to access the menu bar in flight by simple mouse over of the top of the screen then have it recede back to not showing once I am finished with menu selection. I believe X-Plane has a similar feature? This would be great since now I have to hide the menu bar...

Re: problem with PTA 2.63 and P3D V.4.4

I am assuming you backed up the original shaders with PTA? If so, I would restore the original shaders and flush the shader cache and see if that returns you to base level normal. Then start your tweaking again.

Rail traffic?

Hi. Wondering if it is ever planned for P3D to include railroad traffic in the sim similar to X-Plane 11? I find this to be very immersive and realistic to see.

Re: Night landscape

I am also interested in this. the sky (at least in my opinion) is much too dark. I would like to lighten it some so that the airplane is at leas silhouetted against the night sky similar to a full moon. As it is now, its just straight black. I do have PTA, so if there are shader tweaks that would fi...

Re: Aviation Flashlights

Oliver, I have been away for a couple of days on a short holiday. I just saw this tonight and played with it. its GREAT. Thank you so much for your efforts here. As far as Im concerned its a mandatory add for P3D. Really great. Very similar to X-plane but better, given the color flexibility and the ...

Re: Aviation Flashlights

i actually got what I want by changing the color parameters in the White wide FX file to these. [ParticleAttributes.0] Color Start=33, 174, 28, 37 Color End=33, 174, 28, 75 I just select white flood lights in the GUI and now I get green lights. Pending any changes to the tool GUI, I will just swap o...

Re: Aviation Flashlights

Hi Oliver,

I saw that this was largely a gui for FX files. I will toy with those for my own use. Still, it would be nice to have a third color option along with red, which is green... :)

Re: Night Vision Goggles

One thing I did notice was in the external view I suggested, the sim seems to use this to replace the standard external spot view which I am assuming its doing because it uses the same GUID. For me this really isnt a problem since I use chase plane for most of my standard views. However, for good or...

Re: Aviation Flashlights

Oliver! The flashlight tool is fantastic! One of my favorite items in XP11. Now I have it in P3D! Two suggested features if you can think to add. 1. I would like the ability to scale the light from large to small. I find the spot light too small in some instances and in other instances I would like ...

Re: Night Vision Goggles

Hi Oliver. I think I got what I want now.. :) I added the VC night vision camera view as below, and an external NVG view as well. Personally, I think LM should add these in 4.5 :) (For anyone else who uses these cameras below, make sure to change the camera definition numbers to the next ones in ser...

Re: Night Vision Goggles

Hi Oliver, first of all, thank you for the great help you are giving me. it is much appreciated. Your suggestion works great. however, it is a static view. Not VC, so I dont get the VC ability to pan around, which is what I am after. I do use Chase plane, which I am sure makes all the difference her...

Re: Night Vision Goggles

Hi Lorby, thanks. That gets me headed in the right direction. Best I can get so far looks like this, which is the green post processing and White IR hot. Still doest look as good as the sensor/NVG IR hot. What I would love is to get that visual but also with my cockpit visible. https://i.imgur.com/Z...

Night Vision Goggles

Hi guys. is it possible to activate Night Vision Goggles so that you can see your cockpit panels etc? I know in P3D there is a sensor capability which shows either white hot or black hot but it doesnt show the aircraft either interior or exterior. In FSX, there used to be a reshade filter that you c...
