Weather Menu minor issue

P3D v4.5 Client/v4.4 Content/v4.3 Scenery

I have just noticed that there is a missing "p" in the tooltip for Dew Point in the User Defined Weather/Advanced Weather/TempPressure section. It reads as follows.....

"Specify a dew point temerature"

Re: Saved Scenario incorrect date

Thanks, Brad. For the record, I did notice that it also stated the incorrect GATE on the Scenario screen, so you may want to check that out aswell.

Saved Scenario incorrect date

I have just updated the client to v4.5 (from v4.4), and now I have a problem loading my saved scenarios. Not only do I get returned to the Scenario screen (it may be by design, but frankly I do not like the concept), but the date shown for the scenario is incorrect. Can someone please help me to res...

AI Planes

Is there any chance of the AI engine being modified so that the AI planes don't do stupid things for the first 20 minutes of a session? I am talking about AI planes diving down to the approach path from higher altitudes, landing short, landing long, sitting motionless in a field some distance from a...

Re: v3.3 was rubbish, v3.3.5 is working ok

Is DX12 something that only Windows 10 can use, or is this a deliberate marketing decision by Microsoft to "encourage" customers to upgrade? What I mean is.....are Windows 7 and 8 capable of using DX12?

Re: Scenery Problem at every airport

I have no problem staying with v3.1, since the updates in 3.2 and 3.3 are of little consequence to me. However, I still think that LM should have warned everyone that support for SDK2002 code was going to be removed before they released v3.3. It would probably have saved more than a few headaches.

Re: Spinning clouds and Landscape shadow problems

I guess it must be the mesh textures shifting. Is that something to do with tesselation?

This one puzzles me, considering that I have terrain shadows switched OFF....

Re: Anti aliasing and dynamic reflections: a bad combination?

I suspect that this inferior AA quality is also apparent on my PC since upgrading the client software to v3.1. In addition, I have also noticed a reduction in overall performance (it seems to be somewhat "jerky" when panning from side to side in the VC; that never happened in v3.0).

Re: All aircrafst turning right on takeoff

What does "left bias" mean? If I very gently move the joystick to the left, the plane will start to turn. If I very gently move the joystick to the right ......absolutely nothing will happen. I have to move it quite far to achieve the same degree of turn as I am getting to the left. Calib...

Re: All aircrafst turning right on takeoff

I assume that LM are waiting for other fixes and improvements to be completed before they release a hotfix. It makes sense, and it isn't as if I can't fly my plane at the moment. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to the day when my joystick works properly in P3D v3, because it has a left bias at th...

Re: Sun / Pea interchangable

For the record, the Sun and Moon should be roughly the same apparent size in the sky, so "3500" for the Sun and "6072" for the Moon does not sound correct.

Re: All aircrafst turning right on takeoff

The simple fact of the matter is that P3D v3 has "controller issues" that need to be sorted out. LM is apparently working on a fix.

Re: Sun / Pea interchangable

I can confirm that the Sun has shrunk to a white dwarf in P3D on my PC since upgrading to v3. A solution would be welcome. I use REX Essential Plus SP3, but I had the same problem with the default sim.

Static water textures

Why are my water textures still as static as ever since upgrading to P3D v3? I use REX Essential Plus SP3 (which is supposed to induce a certain degree of wave animation), but my water textures are as static as a painting. A few hundred feet above the water, and it may as well be solid ice! I really...
