    Maybe more accurate to say that "originally 2D panels WERE designed only to fit 4:3 ratio". Some models, like Philippe Wallaert's, include both 16:1 and 4:3 2D panels (sometimes a VC as well).

    Some VC's look amazing and yes, others look cartoony awful. As for TrackIR and other VC gear, you may enjoy it but I don't particularly want to have more hardware on my head. My teenage son laughs at...

    Or better to say, for the hundreds and hundreds of thousands of hobbyist simmers who use FSX and FSX-SE?

    P3D only? No sale, SimWorks.

    Yeah, let Mitja in Slovenia patch your Windows 7 after end of support. What could possibly be wrong with that? :p

    Can Microsoft Flight Simulator's 2020 reboot solve the pilot shortage?

    I don't think a new flightsim will address the life-crippling debt from expensive pilot training, the low...

    Some ATR-42s had them. Other vendor models depict them as well ... with improved accuracy, sure. Virtualcol planes are low cost, "value" models, not PMDG, but I've always thought there's a place for...

    Windows 10 and FSX Gold on my rig, lots of add-ons. Zero problems. I think I had to reset my NVidia Inspector profile for FSX once after a Win10 build update, an unwanted side effect that I fixed in...

    A-12 Spy Plane and Plasma Stealth

    A fascinating report about the use of exotic fuel additives on the A-12 spy plane, the SR-71's predecessor.

    From TheDrive.com:

    Thanks to all who looked at this anomaly. John's scenery has the great museum planes on display, and I miss that in the SDB version.

    Fueling occurs in the parking apron with each and every plane I've tested in John's Dover scenery.

    Thanks for the good info, but the Dover scenery doesn't show any fuel triggers - at least none that anyone's been able to identify after close scrutiny, and that's the root problem. ADE shows no fuel...

    Alas, an exclude polygon set to stop triggers, in place across the entire apron, also fails to stop the refueling. No joy.

    It's FSX - BGL - not AFCAD based. I think it's just buggy from it's...

    A friend recommended deleting the kdov_doverafb fuel station.bgl file - but no joy. Planes continue to top up 100% fuel across the entire parking area. Rats.
