    Interesting story! Having flown into both of the mentioned airports more than once, I can vouch for the interesting stories behind each. Of course, College Park is now one of the so-called DC-3 (or...

    Not all of the airplanes, and certainly not the ones that come with the sim, are modeled accurately enough that you need to worry about the book settings. If you are interested in such things, a...

    For 25 years this has been the place to be for flight simulation - the best of the best! Here's to another 25, although for me to celebrate it with you I'll really be a geezer! Thanks for...

    Where? The store has nothing that I can find, including through search. In my account it shows that I own it, but there is no reference anywhere to a patch!

    Microsoft strikes again! That is so basic I'm amazed it was omitted.

    Fortunately, I don't fly the 2 airliners that came with my setup since I flew neither of them in real life (much easier to...

    Turns out that the steering on the aft bogies IS in fact correctly modeled in FS2020 (although not at all in XP11), at least visually. None of this really matters right now since there is apparently...
  7. FS2020 - where is the nose wheel tiller selection in the controls section?

    I can find no nose wheel tiller (steering) selection among all of the various things in the controls section that you can assign buttons and axes to. Is there no way to steer the big ones on the...

    Transport category jets actually have two steering inputs - the tiller, which has full authority up to around 60 degrees either side of center typically, and the rudder pedals, which have authority...

    Real pilots are trained on everything from Basic Aviation Training Devices (such as the Redbird TD desktop device) all the way up to FAA Level D flight simulators (what the airlines use and more or...

    I can add little to Herc79's excellent post, except to say that at this moment in time most of the kinds of airplanes that he mentions are apparently not yet available in FS2020 (since this thread is...

    I cannot cure the download problem, but I too had the no-real-weather, and the Marketplace not available, and some of the other woes you describe. Turned out it was all due to the fact that...

    Problems galore - but what else would one expect from MS!?

    First off, the system installed the "mandatory" update in the wrong order (at least according to a you tube video about it); ie, immediately demanded an update of something called the MS Store (I've...

    "So, how long will it be before aircraft manufacturers put a web browser under glass in the cockpit?"

    For some years now I have been of the opinion that the IFR panel of the future in a light...

    The "washed out" scenery is actually more likely to be a frustrating feature of XPlane 11. I find on my system (with a 43" 4K TV as a monitor) that 2020 is on average much brighter, with more...
  16. Ah.....! Now that (start ready equals ATC tuned)...

    Ah.....! Now that (start ready equals ATC tuned) is news to me! As a RW pilot I'm not a big fan of cold and dark, as many of you may know, but it may be worth it in this instance. I'll have to...

    Well, looks like I'll have to try to keep tricking it, perhaps tuning 121.5 as was mentioned somewhere else. It is nothing short of ridiculous that you cannot completely disable both the voice and...
  18. How to turn off (completely - even the text boxes) ATC

    I get enough chances to interact with real ATC every time I fly, so I really don't need it in FS. Up to now there was always a way to completely shut off the in-game ATC, but in 2020 there seems to...

    Lockheed is not in the simulation business to kick anyone's ass, except maybe our country's enemies through military training and combat simulation. They are not servicing the hobby world except by...

    A little of both, I imagine. There is plenty of venting to be done about all of this, to be sure.

    Question - is there actually no nosewheel tiller steering dataref (or whatever they are called?)...
  21. Nosewheel steering, and Profiles that cover more than one control

    Those are actually two topics, but I am trying to save a few digital trees here so I combine them into one!

    First of all, I just got this thing (2020) with my new computer a week ago, and I have...

    The DC-3 autopilot, the old Sperry "Iron Mike" (known these days as "Otto", following the success of the movie "Airplane!") would not fly an approach at all. As others have indicated, it was a wing...

    Very nice indeed; but, to quibble, it looks like shiny grey metal, not like polished aluminum. I may have to stake out a certain expert witness status here - I have flown polished metal airplanes...

    I would second the suggestion from marcroussy, about getting FSX for the lessons. Any of the previous versions of MSFS (FSX, FS9 otherwise known as FS2004) had some fairly complete lessons, taught...

    71 years "young" here...no - wait! That BS just doesn't fly any more. 71 is older than a good bit of the dirt around here, so even though I still have a twenty-something mind in a geezer body, the...
