    I don't give legal advice (not a lawyer, etc. etc.), but I would suggest that often the readme or other text files included with freeware will give you a clue to what is proper for that particular...

    Nope. Unless it's changed since I last updated, UTX includes few, if any, textures, but changes landclasses, that is, forest, golf course, desert, etc. and moves roads, RR, rivers, lakes, etc. to...

    Have you tried the ORBX free demo in western Washington? It's typical of the regional sceneries, vs the Global stuff, which is good but doesn't have enhanced airports and many other things.

    I'll disagree with that, though I'll agree that they're not useful for practicing pilotage without add-ons. Granted that RRR and a few other things are not up to snuff, but all else is still there...

    UTX can work for your purposes. It's pretty good, and I used it for a number of years, and it certainly does add the items you list above, improving VFR "IFR" (I Follow Roads/Railroads/Rivers), but...

    IMC is when IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) apply and covers a wide range of conditions, and it doesn't require CAT III in all of those. IMC is the opposite of VMC, and is when the law doesn't allow...

    That "cruise speed at 35,000 ft of roughly 490kt" is TAS (True AirSpeed), or actual speed relative to the air around you. That "about 350 kt, I get the Overspeed clicking noise" is IAS, or Indicated...

    There are several programs that can help with this, but the excellent freeware ADE is (IMO) an excellent choice and is also versatile.

    I'm not sure exactly what you're calling the "Landing Characteristics" but aircraft handling in general is from the .air file and the aircraft.cfg file combined. The model files are more to do with...

    I don't know about that particular aircraft, or about V4, but if you go into the C-172 or C-182 and turn the fuel selector to both, that might help -- sometimes settings will carry from one aircraft...

    Your point is well taken, with engine power varying widely with manifold pressure changes (throttle), even at a constant prop RPM.

    With a constant speed prop, engine revs are not directly connected to prop revs, which is why we want gauges to monitor both.

    That's NOT nonsense. Just because you can get away with your procedure in the sim doesn't mean it's right:

    HOW are you turning them on? Clicking a button on the panel may be different from the CTRL-H/CTRL-R etc. For example, clicking the ALT button on the panel's AP section will allow the AP to hold the...

    Certainly you can do that. And with only a 240 GB SDD that's not a bad plan, though the sim would be more responsive if it were on an SDD, but it's pretty small if you install many add-ons, so the...
