    Autostar X

    Has anyone used Autostar X? This came up in another thread and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with it? Also, I was wondering how it would sit with REX 3D?
  2. I decided to be adventurous and upgrade the content as well. I went down the upgrade route rather than the reinstall route and I am glad to say as fare as P3D went all is well. The content upgrade has given me the C130. I think it is the Captain Sim version as the textures seem to match those found in that models repaint. The VC detail is as good as you will get for what is essentially a free aircraft, so I am happy with that until someone comes up with something better. Worth the install? - yes I think so. I have had only one issue. TacPack doesn't work under v4.3. When the Sim starts to load it the start up fails with a message that TacPack cant start under v4.3. I have sent an email to the support email but I have not had a reply, not even an acknowledgment. I don't suppose this will cause many of you folks out there but I will be interested in seeing what comes of the issue. I am not a big fan of the developers of TacPack as they seem to want you to buy the whole thing again as soon as an upgrade happens. And it is not cheap.
  3. Ok thanks Wain. I plan to upgrade to v4.3 soon and was wondering if I should upgrade the client only or do the content as well on the assumption that the C130 would be in that part of the upgrade. I will play safe and upgrade the client only.
  4. One final question... How does it fit with ORBIX scenery?
  5. I heard that there was a C130 with 4.3. Is it true?
  6. Looks good! Can you adjust the number of stars you see? I have seen that many stars in the sky, but only when I was in the Sahara, miles away from any light pollution!
  7. Nice choice of aircraft Steph! I have this aircraft in my stable. It is so extraordinary I had to have it even though it goes against my "RAF only" rule. I got around my rule by doing a re-paint in Empire Test School colours and basing it at Porton Down! It was interesting to see the Osprey refuelling, At first I would have thought it easier to use a boom rather than a hose to refuel, but I suppose that requires the aircraft to be closer to pull it off. With those massive blades you probably want as much distance as possible between the tanker and refuelling aircraft.
  8. Great Pirep Matt. Four aircraft!! That will keep them guessing!

    Missing aircraft P3D v4.2

    That makes sense as some of the default aircraft are JF and they are not Impacted. I will reinstall the aircraft and see where that gets me.

    Missing aircraft P3D v4.2

    Thanks Boss. Setting SEE_SELF to "1" seems to cure most aircraft. However the JF Hawk, JF Tristar and the JF Tornado remain invisible! It must be a JF thing I need to fix. J.
  11. I have to agree with you John. I run P3D v4.2 on a windows 10 64 bit platform and it is the best sim I have owned to date. There are a few issues with older add-ons but the best vendors are doing their best to bring their add-ons into the v4 world. Just Flight are probably the best at doing this, unfortunately Aerosoft doesn't seem to be. I am waiting for their Lightnings to show as being V4x compatible. I think I might have a long wait!
