    TBM 900

    1. Read the manual and setup your key-bindings to manage the "h" shaped throttle 2. Follow the inbuilt tutorial (Plugins- TBM 900) 3. Watch some first class Youtube videos on things like start-up, taxing, take-off and landing technique 4. Follow the checklists (the most are accessible via the G1000 MFD), otherwise use the real TBM 900 manual. Link within the aircraft manual 5. Learn, fly, enjoy. This aircraft is a bit more complex and things may brake, if you do not care about correct handling. You can prevent 90% of the errors by reading, informing yourself in advance and by following most of the procedures. If you succeed on the first flights, the TBM is one of the most fun and educational products for X-Plane.

    TBM900 and Terramax conflict

    It happens actually Everytime you have something set other than "off".

    Comparison video between real life flying and X-Plane 11

    Nice vid. Really enjoyed it... Thx a lot for sharing

    Version 1.2+?

    I wouldn't release an update until 11.40 is final. Otherwise Goran and Toto are forced to review it again...

    TBM900 and Terramax conflict

    Yeah I am also struggling with this issue and Terramaxx remains a great add-on unusable for me.

    Clouds seem to be more natural now?

    @Roger Sacchelli what's your set visibility, clouds etc? Is that Broken at 200ft and 800m or about half a mile visibility on the picture?

    TBM 900 Strange colouring

    As the data output on the upper left looks crystal clear and not effected at all, I assume it's some filter/shader stuff. Do you apply some stuff like: - FlyWithLua scripts modifying art controls - XVision or Reshade or BlueFx How does it behave in other apps or on a clean X-Plane demo installation? I also see from your log that the TBM suffered a lot of failures/damages die to bad handling of the engine and a structural crash. Maybe that effect is connected to some of the custom failure simulation of the TBM? But I am not sure, as I haven't seen such till now.

    some questions about SkyMaxx Pro

    Apply the new skycolor with the SkymaxxPro settings, than in the X-Plane menu open the Developer menu, select show sky color and hit the reload or apply button. That should reload the skycolors instantly.

    Good resource. Thx for highlighting...

    some questions about SkyMaxx Pro

    I would like to punch in here quickly @sundog. I am comparing all combinations and find SMP+RWC+FSGRW by far the most convincing, but it looks that choosing different cloud types for cumulus or overcast has no effect for me, on that particular combo. When FSGRW loads the weather, I am always experiencing a drop in frames for a few seconds and the new weather conditions are being rendered quite abrupt, despite RWC being set to never change the visual weather. SMP+RWC+ASXP is also fine, but the clouds base height is very far off in altitude. Sometimes a few thousand feet, regardless of refreshing the cloud options or switching settings in RWC back and forth. But all around it's the best weather plugin I have ever used. Cheers Jakob

    Typical cruise climb to FL280 or FL310?

    Well I usually climb out 140-160 to 10000ft, thereafter 170 and than finally change to Match 0.4 at around 24000ft to final altitude. In most cases I cruise between FL250 and FL310, depending on upper wind, temperature and route length. Initial climb speed depends on weight, possible icing conditions, inertial seperator conditions and finally ATC demands. I don't like flying out at 124kts, unless terrain requires to reach obstacle clearance fairly quick.

    FS Global Weather / weather.txt file

    Indeed. The manual is not covering the essentials very well. And sorry, no clue of PFPX.

    FS Global Weather / weather.txt file

    Just set up the weather to manually and select CAVOK. Than start your flight, open FSGRW and transfer the weather to X-Plane. FSGRW will now take care of it. It will select the correct weather mode and automatically reload the weather, to render to loaded weather information. Setting the wx to manually and CAVOK at first is just to see the loaded changes, once FSGRW injects the weather data. Actually it is unimportant, as FSGRW changes the stuff for you during weather injection. You just need to configure the weather mode within X-Plane, if FSGRW fails to set it by itself. The metar.rwx file is located inside the X-Plane root directory.

    Night Sky with SkyMaxx looks "pixelated"

    @linkito87 are you running some sort of modified skycolors, Lua scripts which affect atmosphere scattering or some x-vision stuff? If so disable them, revert to default skycolors and compare.
