  1. Thanks Filou. This look like it's on the monitor, with MSFS - fsmovmap (which I have for P3D 4.5) works off my tablet, Don.
  2. P3D5.1 (hotfix)...I have 4.5 which I use VR with Oculus Rift S. Any benefit - fps...resolution - switching to 5.1? Don.
  3. Well Well! I contacted MSFS Support about this, and their reply is: "This message simply means you'll need to wait for a new update of the game before having to download and install anything." Wouldn't it be good if they pinned a note to the Content Manager page telling me this - it would have saved much angst! Hope this helps all others who have shared my angst, Don.
  4. Nick, MSFS starts and runs as usual despite this issue. During the boot up it does the usual check for updates, then goes to the game interface. Let's hope the upcoming update sorts it out, Don.
  5. That's really helpful - exactly what I'm seeing in Content Manager. Let's hope upcoming updates sort it, Don.
  6. I've seen a YouTube clip recommending a great freeware moving map app for msfs which can be used on an android tablet...but I can't find the clip again and I forget the details. Can anyone help please, Don.
  7. I've noticed that there are updates available for most of tthe aircraft in nmsfs. But when I go into Content Manager it tells me that a newer game version is required to update. Does that mean a complete uninstall/reinstall? Also, where can I find my msfs version number? Thanks, Don.
  8. Can't find Pioneer Valdez PAVD...is it there? Don.
  9. Smudger, thanks for your prompt advice. Couple of supplementaries: Would you recommend any particular software to copy/disk image from SSD to HDD? Once P3D copied to HDD, presumably need to delete/uninstall everything from SSD? Any need to format SSD before installing MSFS? Thanks again, Don.
  10. Tried to find advice by searching the forums...maybe didn't use the right search terms! I'm planning to install MS Flight Simulator in due course - probably when I've seen the experiences of the first few - or many! - early adopters. I currently have P3D 4.5 on a 1TB ssd...but have a separate 1TB hd with not much on it. I'm thinking I might move P3D from the ssd to hd, to free up the ssd for MSFS. Any thoughts on this? But in particular, what's the process - hopefully painless! - for moving P3D from ssd to hd? Sorry if the answer is already somewhere on the
  11. Thanks Nick - didn't spot that in Key Features, Don.
  12. Hi All. What mesh is with OLC (Africa)? Thanks Don.
  13. So W10 v 2004 is quite good? Thanks for that detailed analysis - W haven't offered me 2004 yet, but sounds like I should grab it to go with P3D5, Don.
  14. Hope this is the right place. My P3D4.5 is on drive E: Samsung SSD 850 PRO 1TB. With all my Orbx stuff it's using 357GB currently, leaving 596GB free. My D drive, WD 1TB HD, is almost empty, only 15GB on it. Question...should P3D5 go on E, alongside P3D4.5 where, subject to further Orbx stuff, it would presumably consume another circa 357GB, leaving around 240GB free? Or should I put P3D5 on empty drive E, the 1TB HD? I'm aware that loading times are slower than SSDs than HDs...but dramatically slower? I also understand that once a P3D scenario is loaded and running the
  15. Hi All, I'm thinking of treating myself to PILOTS Global Ultimate NG 2020 mesh for P3D4.5. Is it good? And especially, hope it doesn't mess up airport elevations. Comments/advice please, Don.
  16. Ignore please, already repled to by Nick in P3D4 support, Don.
  17. Thanks Nick, I'll try that. Presumably turbine reverser relates to reverse thrust on touchdown, for jets? Don.
  18. Hi All, P3D4.5...one or two aircraft in my hangar will move forward - slowly - when on the ground, when throttle is set at idle. Not a big problem - I know I can use the brakes or set parking brake...but I'd rather the plane stayed stationary when on idle. Is there a simple way to achieve this? Presumably it can be done by reducing slightly the plane's thrust/prop speed when throttle lever is set at minimum? Any help/advice please? Don.
