    Service Chief Wades into PC Row All 3 services are suffering from the same ridiculous pressure to pretend they are like normal society when they patently are not due to the very special nature of their roles; which still includes an obligation to defend the freedom of everyone to spout politically correct drivel.An example of the problem (based on the RN but no doubt the Army and RAF have similar tales to tell):"The Royal Navy is proud of its new fleet of Type 45 destroyers. Having initially named the first two ships HMS Daring and HMS Dauntless, the Naming Committee has, after intensive pressure from Brussels during Brexit negotiations, renamed them HMS Cautious and HMS Prudence.The next five ships are to be named HMS Empathy, HMS Circumspect, HMS Nervous, HMS Timorous and HMS Apologist. Costing £1,050 million each, they meet the needs of the 21st century and comply with the very latest employment, health and safety, and human rights laws.The new user-friendly crow's nest comes equipped with wheelchair access. Live ammunition has been replaced with paintballs to reduce the risk of anyone getting hurt and to cut down on the number of compensation claims. Stress counselors and lawyers will be on duty 24 hours a day and each ship will have its own industrial tribunal.The crew ratio will be 50/50 men and women, balanced in accordance with the latest Home Office directives on race, gender, sexual preference and disability. Sailors will only have to work a maximum of 37 hours a week in line with Health and Safety rules, even in wartime. All the vessels will come equipped with a maternity ward and nursery, situated on the same deck as the Gay Disco.Saluting officers has been abolished because it is deemed elitist, and is to be replaced by the more informal "Hello Sailor". All information on noticeboards will be printed in 37 different languages and Braille. Crew members will now no longer be required to ask permission to grow beards or mustaches, and this applies equally to male crew members.The MoD is working on a new "non-specific" flag because the White Ensign is considered to be offensive to minorities and Frenchmen. The Union Flag has already been discarded.The newly re-named HMS Cautious is due to be commissioned soon. She will glide gently into the water as the band of the Royal Marines plays "In The Navy" by The Village People. Her first deployment will be to escort boat loads of illegal immigrants across the Channel from France to ports on England 's south coast."

    Auld Jock had been a religious man all his life. When rushed into hospital his family called a preacher to stand with them. As the preacher stood next to the bed, Jock's condition appeared to worsen and he motioned frantically for something to write on. He was lovingly handed a pen and paper and Jock used his last gasp of energy to scribble a note which he handed to the preacher and then he died. The preacher thought it would not be polite to look at the note at that time and placed it carefully in his jacket pocket. At the funeral, as he was finishing his eulogy he realised that he was wearing the same jacket as he had at the hospital. He said "You know, Auld Jock handed me a wee note just before he died. I haven't read it yet, but knowing Auld Jock I'm sure there's a word of inspiration there for us all" He opened the note and read out loud "Hi minister. Yer staundin oan ma oxygen"

    John, there is a copy of the latest ai ships in our staff reviewers Dropbox, I have merged V1 and V2 so it's now compatible with P3Dv4. The two files are also available from AVSHIT as seperate downloads for non-crew. After some sleep, I can probably help you with some of the others.

    Got it! Did you ever see this on the back side of one of the taxiway signs? You thought all those Little Johnny mischief jokes were just fiction, didn't you? John

    1. If you have an old P3D database, there is no need to rebuild it for an updated P3D version. The only time you need to rebuild the database is if you change your scenery. The log file will tell you for sure whether a build was successful. Oh, and NEVER build a database across a network: that is begging for failure. Always build databases on your FS PC and copy them across to your client. Having said that, going from an old version of Plan-G to v3.2, it is worth rebuilding the database, since Plan-G will now display your Addon airfields in yellow. 2. The black square houses the wind arrow. If you see a yellow arrow within then (a) you know you are connected, and (b) you know the wind direction. 3. P3D uses a different version of Simconnect compared to FSX, and requires a different setup. See http://www.tasoftware.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=3795.0 for details. With all versions of Simconnect, your FS PC requires a static or reserved IP address. BTW "index" refers to the index of the entry in your sim connect.cfg that you wish to use. For most users this will be the first/only entry, so the index value will be 0. Bear in mind that since P3Dv4 is a 64bit sim, its Simconnect might not work on a 32-bit PC - you'll just have to suck it and see (they might have compiled it for both, but I have no way of knowing). As Joe said, WideClient will still work.

    @allardjd Dree's KOCF (SP1) works fine in P3D4v but you have to add it manually, I'll PM you later A few shots - Ah! the memories! The Carenado aircraft you can re-download and they will be up to date. The Herc, I don't think will work as Ros says The Default FSX stuff - ditch and make a wish list and give it to Pam! Joe

    Hi Wayne. So I have REX SF textures loaded and Active Sky weather engine and that is ok. However, in order to use the REX feature of syncing cloud models/structures during your flight you have to have REX FS running in the background with it's weather engine feature turned off. The trouble is after a short while a .NET runtime error happens and I am not sure that the clouds are syncing so until they fix that I don't have SF running in the background. So in conclusion, I am enjoying the new cloud textures from Sky Force but still running Active Sky to generate the real world weather. My advice is to stick with what you have for the time being unless you fancy some new cloud textures. /Joe

    You have to "trigger" some actions. If you want the flight engineer to perform tasks (I strongly suggest this way to get the right feeling with the aircraft), you have to open the shift+3 window and activate the FE. He will prepare the aircraft for engine start. To get your passengers and cargo you have to open the payload window, choose fuel and pax and then start boarding. The FE will take care of the systems during the whole flight. You will only fly the aircraft and monitor the gauges. Then you arrive at the gate, set mixture off and the FE will shut all the systems. Of course you will unboard your passengers and cargo, with Betty taking care of everything in the cabin. Don't forget to activate the Career mode.

    I was driving to work one day when the CEO called me on my mobile. "You're promoted to assistant manager,"he said. I got such a surprise I swerved to the left. A few minutes later he called again and told me I was promoted to manager, and I got such a surprise I swerved to the right. After another few minutes he called again and told me I was promoted to regional manager. I got such a shock I swerved again and ended up on the grass verge. The police turned up and asked me what happened. I told them I'd careered off the road. (Tommy Cooper)
