  1. ANNOUNCING… PREPAR3D V4 05-23-17 Lockheed Martin is proud to announce that the next generation of simulation and training will start on May 30, 2017 with the public release of Prepar3D v4. The release culminates over eight years of Lockheed Martin development and welcomes major enhancements and new capabilities. Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D v4 – available May 30, 2017 Prepar3D v4 completely changes the simulation landscape with a comprehensive baseline update to a 64-bit architecture. Higher resolution visuals, more objects, increased data precision, larger scenarios, and improved performance are now all possible at levels never seen before in the product’s history. The sky’s not the limit! Additionally, the release brings dynamic lighting, rain/snow particles, global 3D trees, a fully reworked software development kit (SDK), new default vehicles, and countless improvements. More details will be released over the next week with Prepar3D v4 being directly available from on May 30, 2017 at 2:00pm EST.
  2. Leave it with me
  3. Hi Lucy, I don't think you can really overkill the specs if you can afford it. What you posted above looks great! Don't forget, you can get an extra £25 off Chillblast flight sim PC's because you are a Mutley's Hangar member, by quoting "mutleycode15"
  4. Thanks for your kind thoughts John, I'm going to lock this post as a mark of respect to the victims so the terrorists are starved of the publicity.
  5. I probably looked at the same videos you did Wayne as I don't have it. Would it help looking at the manual first?'
  6. FlightSimCon Reaches New Heights with Impressive Speaker Lineup WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn—May 22, 2017—FlightSimCon is proud to announce an impressive speaker lineup for the 2017 event, which is scheduled for June 10-11, 2017 at the Sheraton Hartford Hotel attached to Bradley International Airport, just outside of Hartford, CT, USA. There will be a plethora of educational, entertaining, and informative seminars throughout the weekend. Flight-simulation focused seminars will occur on Saturday, and presentations with a real-world focus will occur on Sunday. “We’ve decided to give each day a specific focus”, said event manager Nicole Glander. “Doing this allows for a better transition between seminars, especially as one may build off of the next”, she continued. On Saturday, June 10, attendees will hear more about virtual reality in flight simulation from FlyInside’s Daniel Church. Seminars on home cockpit building, featuring Tom Gauvin, Nathan Palmer, and Sebastian Moebius, will show attendees how to create realistic, at-home “sim pits”. But the highlight of the day on Saturday will be the Flight Simulator Developer Panel, featuring representatives from FlightSimWorld and Flight Simulator X, Prepar3D, and X-Plane. Chaired by FlightSim.Com’s Nels Anderson, the panel discussion will be driven by questions from the audience and feature an interactive look at the future of the industry’s most prominent flight simulation platforms. On Sunday, June 11, the lineup features pilots, dispatchers, and military personnel. Airline pilots Matthew Canon and Myron Ashcraft will discuss how their work relates to the flight simulation world, and just how realistic some of the high-quality add-on aircraft can be. Flight Dispatch Training Instructor Mike Collier talks about how to create flight plans and determine routes like a pro, using simulation software PFPX. Finally, Major Adam Cybanski of the Royal Canadian Armed Forces, will discuss the value of flight simulation for military aviation. Attendees can stay up-to-date and create customized agendas on the conference app, Whova. Attendees can download the app on their phone and connect to the conference, allowing for access to the attendee list, all exhibitors, an interactive map of the layout, and much more! On Sunday, the conference is pleased to welcome Stephen K. Brown, Manager, FAA Safety Team, from the Boston FSDO. Stephen will be presenting an FAAST-approved presentation on the benefits of flight simulation for real-world aviators. In addition to the engaging seminars, attendees will be joined by over 35 exhibitors from around the industry, from colleges and universities to hardware and software developers. The full list of speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors may be found at Attendees of the event will also have the opportunity to win prizes from Big Fat Simulations, David Clark, ImagineSim,, Navigraph, and TrackIR. Registration for the event is available online now. Advance registration online is strongly encouraged, and is discounted off the on-site price. Register now at
  7. Looking very nice Wayne. Regarding the ILS, I expect the magnetic variation for the airport has changed has changed since FSX/P3D was first built. The P3D version is 065/245 with 3° W variation and the latest RW figures are 064/0244 with 0°W variation. If Navigraph is based on current real world data then that may be the reason. John Allard's terminal charts are based on the simulator data and can be incorporated into Plan-G.
  8. You better believe it! Our product is like a grown up SAP, especially in warehouse/stock management, forecasting, JIT purchasing, SPA's and contact management, but our systems are generally not retail, except for Jewsons who dabble a bit. We use touch screen terminals as well, web ordering and HHDs, so we're well advanced. I work in development rather than implementation, so our days are shorter and we are not customer facing (thank relevant deity here) .. Phew! Oh! and we are in the final stages of the planning for ATWC 7, once Micke pulls his' finger out and chooses the route, we can get under way. Are you and Lance coming to Cosford this year? A nice ride out for the weekend and I am sure we will have cake!
  9. Further to the above there is now a ticket system for bug reporting and can be found here:
  10. Wayne, they have a forum, look here (you may have to register)
  11. Just superb Loic, what a great place to sightsee!
  12. You're a real trailblazer Wayne! Thanks for the looksee, I think for a first view, very early on, they have done well. However, it looks like they started with the user interface, which looks slick but that appears to be at the sacrifice of the fine tuning options we are used to. Flight simmers, in general, tend to be happy to get their hands dirty under the bonnet/hood, so I hope they de-sanitise it so we can tweak to our heart's content. I am not confident at the moment that they can deliver a non-gamey product, but I really hope I am proved wrong.
  13. It looks very dreamy Wayne!
  14. I can sense @J G will be wanting this one as soon as it it out!
