XP 11 Basic ?'s

Tue Apr 04, 2017 9:13 pm

So, just switched to XP after a decade of FSX. I know this game is supposed to be more realistic, however there are a few things I would really like to know

1. Can you set a GPS route using the 737/747 etc., right now, i can only get it in the turbo props.....if I want to set a flight plan with the bigger aircraft, it only looks like the FMS system is available and that is a large learning curve??

2. Where are some major airports like DTW missing, or have no buildings? Same with BOM etc. Do we have to download all of these individually?

3. Any good AI traffic (realistic)....don't wanna see air berlin in DFW or Air Newzeland in SEA.

4. Finally, how do you get he wing over passenger view......i keep seeing them in youtube vids, but I dont see the option in game.
Boiler Up!!!

I'll take a stab at it, I've been on xp since v9.....
1. Since that aircraft doesn't have a "typical" GA GPS, yes you need to use the FMS, not really difficult, except it is likely not working right since v11 is beta.
3. This is one of those differences in xplane mentality, it doesn't care about things like this, it just places random aircraft for scenery sake. I've never looked further into it, so maybe?
4. You simply move the viewport to that location, it doesn't really have a setting for that.
