  1. I'm using an Arduino board with Air Manager software. It's still work in process but relatively straight forward to hook up the switches. You need to know a little bit of how to program in LUA.
  2. Does anybody have experience with MSFS and a three monitor setup? I’m running X-Plane 11.50 with two networked computers (actually three but the third does only instrument panel management and display) and I know that MSFS doesn’t support networked systems. The stronger of my two machines is an Intel i5-9600KF@4.8Ghz, 6 cores, 32 GB, SDD system with an Nvidia RTX 2070 with 8GB VRAM. The center display is an ultra-wide with a resolution of 3840 by 1080 and the two side-screens are 4K TVs, which I could run at lower resolution if necessary. In addition to the question whether the single computer has enough power for all these pixels, I’m also interested in finding out how the three screens can be configured in regards to viewing angles, field of views, and offsets. My setup is a basement built cockpit where the screens are mounted at 90 degree angles to each other and I’m afraid that a simple extended screen through the Windows operating system will look distorted.
  3. Looks like you won the shortest landing distance contest in your last picture!
  4. If you’re using X-Plane, Frank Dainese has a fantastic scenery for the Dolomitis already. Actually, there’s the original version and he’s developing an updated scenery currently, which is released in stages. In my opinion, it would be difficult for anybody to significantly improve on Frank’s work and development resources should be directed to other projects.
  5. Sign-up with PilotEdge and ask the controller for holdern patterns.
  6. Thanks for your help, Jon. After some trial and error I figured out that one needs to list “Orbx_KCGX_C_Overlay” below “Global Airports”.
  7. Not sure whether this is an Orbx issue but perhaps somebody can still help me. Orbx Meigs Field in Chicago loads and looks fine and downtown Chicago and its surroundings look great. Chicago O’Hare though has no buildings and no paved runways but simply a criss-cross of grass strips in their place. I’ve attached my scenery file. Thanks in advance scenery_packs.ini
  8. A tip: I keep a master version of my “scenery_packs.ini” under a different name and have a small batch script that copies and replaces “scenery_packs.ini” with that master file every time before starting X-Plane. This way, I can always check and compare how certain add-ons like Orbx would mess with my “scenery_packs.ini” and I can then decide what changes to make in my master file.
  9. You can also get a new decent, but not over the top PC, and network them if you have multiple screens. It’s a little bit of work setting it all up but I think it’s much more economical to have two decent systems than one expensive extreme PC.
  10. With solid helipads, X-Plane has to constantly calculate and check whether your aircraft is in contact or colliding with these objects, which takes resources,
  11. There are a few floating buildings close to the Santa Monica Airport. I've disabled all sceneries except the default X-Plane sceneries and Orbx SoCal. Picture and configuration file is attached. scenery_packs.ini
  12. Thanks! Deleted the file in both the ortho and the overlays directories and it looks good now.
  13. Some (not all) buildings are floating in the air at Bar Harbor when using Ortho4XP New England. The New England overlay and image data is placed below all Orbx sceneries in my configuration file. Everything's fine when disabling the ortho photos. It's weird that most buildings are on the ground (even the camping truck next to a floating hangar sits on the ground) and all other Orbx airports work nicely with my other Ortho4XP sceneries.
