Re: MCAS Iwankuni SCENERY ISSUE

Matt, everything you need should be in the MAIW Scenery Library package. If it's not there, try adding the Atsugi and Beaufort obj packages (which I thought were in the MAIW package anyway). I don't think I added anything else to my P3Dv4 version (pics above).

Re: Has anybody done ...

Gents, I am guessing that the answer is no but you guys have surprised me many times before so i will ask the question. Has anybody done any scenery, or even just an afcad for Hashimara AFS (VEHX)? Nothing is permanently based their yet, but soon will be, however the reason i am interested is that ...

Re: RAF Brüggen: Help needed with ADE Frequencies

Interesting! I hadn't heard that (ADE certainly thinks FS9 is the same as FSX/P3D), but it would be good to have that confirmed for those still working on FS9 scenery.

Re: RAF Brüggen: Help needed with ADE Frequencies

The FS9 range is the same as FSX and P3d - 118.0 to 136.975MHz in 25Khz steps. That's the civilian 760-channel spectrum that was in use up to around 2010, when the 8.33KHz spacing came in allowing 2280 channels. The only break in that should be 121.4 to 121.6, to protect the emergency frequency of 1...

Episode 7: Multiplayer. Not sure this has anything for us, but some info about real-world traffic, and AI injection.

Re: RAF Brüggen: Help needed with ADE Frequencies

Steve, the limitation you refer to is the one I mentioned above. MSFS/P3D uses the old-fashioned 25KHz spacing. In real life, we’ve been using 8.33KHz spacing for many years. So the sims are missing two thirds of the available freqs.

Re: RAF Brüggen: Help needed with ADE Frequencies

It depends what you're trying to achieve, really. For an experience more or less like reality, at a European fast-jet base you should have Ground, Tower, and Approach (there may be a joint Approach radar with other units nearby - FS/P3D does allow for that). FS's ATC system is firmly USA oriented, s...

Re: RAF Brüggen: Help needed with ADE Frequencies

That's so helpful, never pondered on that! Thank you very much. So does it help if I change the appropriate frequencies a little, for example + 0,5? If you're using ADE to allocate frequencies, it'll generally avoid freqs that are used by other airfields within a reasonable distance. If you're doin...

Re: RAF Brüggen: Help needed with ADE Frequencies

As Menno says, the default frequencies for military aircraft are UHF, not VHF. 122.1 is a NATO standard backup frequency, and is monitored by all military airfields. Hence, in FS/P3D, it's rammed with interrupting calls from airfields up to 200 miles away. Avoid 122.1 in your airports! You can't be ...

Re: A brand new MS Flight Simulator is coming...

This video gives some idea of the realtime raytracing available under the DX12 Ultimate API, which I imagine FS20 will exploit. The dynamic lighting, reflections etc are quite stunning. The music, however, may not be to your taste (but I quite liked it!).

Manfred that looks great. I've been following your progress with this over at FSD as well. Any chance you could put together a 'how to' for the ground reflections?

Re: A brand new MS Flight Simulator is coming...

On top of what Greg says, if you remain in a particular area, the detail will improve as the app captures data, no matter how slow your connection. MS have stated that a 10mb connection should be good enough for full detail. I have my doubts about that, but it should be within the capabilities of an...

Re: MCAS Iwankuni SCENERY ISSUE

I modified (well, pretty much rebuilt) the MAIW Iwakuni to fit P3D's default photoreal background ayear or so ago. I still need to sort out John's harbour to make it fit! Not that I normally visit Japan in-game, but it was a fun exercise. https://i.imgur.com/hLqP3JH.png?1 https://i.imgur.com/q3678od...

Re: MCAS Iwankuni SCENERY ISSUE

Ok. I'm nothing to do with this scenery package, but the default Iwakuni is the old airfield before the land reclamation was done and the new runway was built a few hundred metres further east on land which was previously sea - that's why you've moved. Whether there's something missing in this itera...

Re: Coronavirus/Covid-19 How are you doing?

Indian society isn't as organised or compliant as China's, its medical system (along with most other systems) is fairly shambolic (with a few notable exceptions), and it already has to cope with a host of diseases and medical issues that kill far more people than C19 will in most countries. I suspec...

Re: Coronavirus/Covid-19 How are you doing?

John, I think it's more an acceptance that the virus is in the population now, and that can't be reversed. It puts a relatively positive spin on it to hope that the immunity that will inevitably develop in those who contract and recover from the disease will allow much of society to function at a ba...

Re: A brand new MS Flight Simulator is coming...

This might help, Steve. I think it's a fair bet that VR will be a part of FS20, if not at launch then shortly afterwards. It's been a feature of P3D for a while, though I believe it's not that great. I have an Oculus Rift headset that I use for Elite Dangerous. In that game, the immersion is fantas...

Re: Coronavirus/Covid-19 How are you doing?

Having been to several countries in the period that C19 has been around, I'm probably at significant risk of contracting the disease. I'm coincidentally off work for the next two weeks, so I'll be spending my time riding my bike, playing my guitar, making some scenery and doing my garden. And wonder...
