  4. Not with the reflections as that uses the dynamic reflections within P3D

    Omg that is criminal! You should join me on my stream one night and I'll fly it. It's really not that hard to be honest once you done it couple of times. I found this a while back and it's the best item in my inventory for the Connie. It's a checklist that shows you everything you need to do as the pilot and engineer. Check it out...

  11. I'm too busy for walkarounds Well I like to risk it sometimes in the sim as it's neat when it fails and you experience the unexpected. I like seeing what A2A have developed too. Obviously in the real world you would always do a walk around but in the sim your life is safe. Thanks
  12. I had to put flaps back up to stop the plane pulling to the left, then land without flaps. Luckily I was at EGNX with a good long runway and plenty of time to land too. Then the aileron failure - unfortunately could not show this in flight, but I had full left yoke and no movement at all - so hard to land when all you got is rudder
  13. I am still favouring P3D, but XP11 is so close too to be honest. It's good how you can tweak and use addons easily I guess. So much free stuff out there, you don't have to spend anything if you don't want to. Let us know how you get on and also post some screens
  14. reminds me of XP11 weather
  15. Hi, So all Active Sky is going to do at the moment is inject real live weather, or custom weather you create into the sim. Likewise, letting XP11 get the weather will do pretty much the same - although Active Sky has a few more bells and whistles in terms of settings and improvements. You then have things like Ultra Weather XP and xVision that gives you fancy graphics using the injected weather. So this helps the sim draw the weather in a beter way etc. I would alway stick with what is given for free before purchasing, but if you're not happy with the results then go purchase. It will be better once HiFi Active Sky does the smooth weather transitions and maybe the cloud drawing too. But I think we are a way off from that just yet. There are other freeware weather injectors like NOAA that improve the features of XP11 default weather engine. Go check this out as it may be the ideal 'in between' option. Good luck mate
  16. Nice mate thanks for sharing
  17. Looking good and nice you are back on board flying again. Don't worry about cat hair - it just shows you have got a life Too clean, means you have not lived
  18. You should, I created a few now one being the twin otter - I don't really know what I'm doing but it works lol.
  19. Never tried it mate, I think the reflection maker application is stand alone and as far as I'm aware it does not depend on tomato shader.
  20. No problem mate another time

  23. So for a long time I've been using PTA tool and preset. Obviously this is a paid tool and is great, but when I heard of Tomato Shade I thought 'ah it's just the same Tomato Shade can also use PTA presets, so why would I swap? Simple fact that Tomato Shade is being developed all the time. It also has additional features One of them featured is the model reflection maker. This adds more detail to the airplane models reflections using the P3D dynamic reflections. Here is a before and after...
  24. I do love it but it needs quite lobg runways to take off and land, in comparison to the Comanche or 172. Still super plane. You should join me on my live stream some day mate it be good to talk. Thanks bud
