Amazing sky colours in your images R.

A very handy tool as well to inform you exactly of your location.:)

Thank you Martyn. I am pleased you enjoyed them.

One of the things that continually amazes me is the shear amount of quality freeware that is available for XPlane. This, IMHO is a good example ...

Thanks Iain. I appreciate it. It is a little thing, but to me it has made a huge difference in my enjoyment level of TE.

Great orange shots Renault and that map is amazing, very detailed and I'm sure very handy, good for you!

What would I do without that colour ?

 

I know :rolleyes:. If I had a real one , I'd spend all my cash on a spiffy metallic orange paint job, just like this one :D

Cheers!

Beautiful shots Renault. What a clever gadget. Would that work in p3d 4.3?

Hi guys

Thanks for the comments and the interest :)

 

Short answer - I don't believe so. 

 

XPlane is fundamentally a very different product at a coding level from both P3d and FSX (P3d was originally based upon FSX which is why there has been a basic compatibility between the two in some areas).  From the author's comments at the Avitab XPlane-Org  discussion forum ( link in my initial post above) " Avitab is a native and VR compatible plug in  for XPlane …. " . In fact it was originally developed for VR use only in XPlane as due to XPlane's structure in VR most windows that are available in 2D do not exist. From this I would initially conclude that Avitab would not be recognizable to a P3d installation. However, this is speculation on my part and perhaps a definitive answer could be obtained by posing the  question on the Avitab forum. The program developer "Folko" seems to be very responsive to requests and comments.

 

Not a good analogy I'm sure but "back in the old days before DVD" in North America there were two competing analogue video cassette tape systems for home movie viewing. They were the VHS system and the Sony Betamax system.  Both delivered exactly the same result, namely a video signal that was recognizable by a standard TV of the day. However, a VHS movie tape was completely unrecognizable to a Betamax system and vice versa. Unfortunately I am suspicious that the same situation exists with Avitab.

 

Sorry that I cannot be more helpful, but after reading through all the comments at the Avitab forum today and also trying  a web search with multiple engines, I have been unable to find anything to suggest that Avitab is anything but XPlane 11 compatible.

 

Cheers

Renault

 

PS - I agree with your interest. It is a very nice product and I have progressed to not flying without it :)

Are you running P3D on your iPad?

Could this program be set up as a pop up on a PC based P3D installation?

No, it is a application for iPad. It is a moving map, it displays aircraft position, flight plan and its waypoints on the map.

No, it could not be set up as a pop up.

A program "RemoteFlight server" is needed (Windows or MacOS X) to make a Internet (wifi) connection between iPad and PC.

It works for FSX/Prepar3D/FS9/X-Plane 9, 10 and 11.

been thinking about something like this for P3D.....I was looking at buying an Ipad for something similar, is it easy to link to my PC?

LittleNavMap works for both P3D and XP and is a wonderful free (donationware, I seem to remember) product. There was talk of it maybe coming to AFS2 as well, I think, but I haven't seen any signs of that. I'm hoping it'll get ported for MFS (or maybe it won't be necessary - we'll find out soon)

Great post Renault. Where did you get the UK Map for avitab?

Thank you

The maps are all automatic. It uses open source maps and pulls them off a server as you fly. They are stored in cache on your machine for 

later use , so you only download them once

 

It is also available to work on an "ipad" in the cockpit for certain aircraft  , or if you just like to fly in cockpit view, you  will have the map 

displayed on your screen.

 

Here are  representative screenshots over Seattle in TE Washington

Cheers

Pete
