  2. I use a payware Samedan so I did not notice. Not sure about the purpose of this thread -- is it necessary? It is a free offering, simply remove the ones that you do not like. Certainly I would hate for the author of all these EU freeware airports to feel discouraged. Or are you suggesting that he should improve them or make them better fit some photoreal scenery going forward? I am inclined to agree with your observations but I am not sure ORBX can be held to the standard of having to exactly fit a photoreal third party offering. Just remove all the swiss airports and be done with it. I

  3. G'day guys, As we all wait with excitement for Tim and Ken's amazing Samoan Experience, I'd love to show a few screenshots from the latest triple-installer I've been working on, KJAC Jackson Hole Airport for the Central Rockies region. Originally released in mid-2012, Jackson Hole was an expansive project that aimed to recreate not only one of the most scenic airport approaches in the US, but also the entire Teton Range and several surrounding towns and villages. A favourite with both procedural airline simmers and GA enthusiasts alike, the airport is notoriously difficult to fly into duri

  5. Hi all, I am very proud to introduce my latest project, KSTS Sonoma County Regional Airport for FSX/P3Dv2, in Northern California. This has been a 9 month project and by far the most intensive thus far, with hundreds upon hundreds of models in both the airport and surrounding area. Features include: - Over 250km sq of annotated and modelled photoreal terrain to explore. - Incredibly crisp 7cm resolution at airport, 30/60cm in surroundings. - A FULL Santa Rosa cityscape modelled, with many local landmarks, and a fully custom modelled town centre. - Covers KSTS, Windsor, Santa Rosa, M

  7. Jim, I think you'll find that Steve's Fixer was not designed to improve frame rates or overall performance of FSX, etc., but to cure problems with the faulty DX10, with shadows/shading, water textures, sun reflections, and the like. So if you ditched the Fixer because it didn't improve your fps, I would suggest rethinking your strategy. I've been running DX10 for many months now, with the Fixer in tow and nVidia Inspector beefing up my GTX770, and I don't anticipate ever going back to DX9. The GTX980 gpu won't solve any of those DX10 problems, with or without the Inspector. Just my though

  13. I've had a bit too much to drink, but I'll go ahead and keep the theme going. I love the fact that we don't have the world's most advanced gathering of air combat tactical freaking experts here on these forums - you know, guys that seem to be specialists in air-to-air and air-to-ground tactics for literally whatever aircraft you want to discuss. Hey, great if you work for Boeing or Lockheed or Grumman or whomever, but I am damn sure 99% of you don't, and the 1% that does wouldn't be risking his freaking secret codeword cleared-for-wierd clearance discussing whatever topic with a bunch of ac

  21. Hi Teecee, If you mean navigation charts, I don't use any chart program, just skyvector on a browser, which you might find acceptable. For approach charts, usually each country has their own collection of downloadable PDFs on a website, e.g. USA, Canada, UK. There may be programs that combine all these, but I'm not aware of them.

  22. Great to see you back Jim, have a read of this it should give you an idea of what to do. I hope you get up and running and have some fun with your sim. http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/31552-installation-instructions-for-orbx-regions/ cheers Iain

  23. I also believe the tablecloths are made out of a laminate poly-blend material. These look like they are cloth. My immersion is broken. Seriously though, this is like a mini-full fat region in a single package. After browsing around google maps at the coverage area, it hurts my head to imagine what it must have been like to model, hand place, and verify all of those buildings, roads, and neighborhoods. This may be the greatest ORBX product to date. *Edit* - I just realized this is my 200th post. So I'll be hosting a party online at this airport when its released. Meet me by the wine bar n

  24. Hi Jim, I'm not sure how long you've been away, so apologies if you know this stuff already. For a start, you might consider the newer version of FSX, the Steam Edition. This is a tidied-up version with recompiled code and a few other improvements, though is essentially the same. Also available is Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D which is also improved, and on which development is continuing. Whatever sim you use, make sure you download the latest versions of Orbx scenery from the FlightSimStore. Check the support page for any patches, and also make sure you install the latest Orbxlibs l

  28. Welcome Belinda. Your reference to man caves reminds me of something. My wife has a 'woman cave'. The finished basement with a fireplace is hers. She has her computer, quilting apparatus, sewing machine, TV set, recliner, and even a trundle bed down there so when she gets mad at me I don't have to sleep on the couch. She just retreats to her woman cave untl she decides she wants to talk to me again. In gift shops and Hobby Lobby I see various 'man cave' signs but have never seen a 'woman cave' sign. I'd like to get one to hang on the stairway going down to 'her' basement. N
