  1. Back in 2005 I began work on a personal scenery project for FS2004 which became Vista Australis or VOZ, and it spawned a life and community of its own. I remember working on our little website and forum with Jay Kae and the excitement of the VOZ 0.99 release day. From the team who had worked with me on VOZ we formed a fledgling company called Orbx. Here is the promo trailer for VOZ 0.99 I made ahead of the release just before Christmas 2005, exactly 10 years ago this week!

  3. Simming is tons of fun, but the real thing certainly has it's benefits. I intend to share with you pictures of my real-world flights for your enjoyment. I am in my hour-building stage and am about to start my night rating, so you can expect more photos as time passes. This first set is from two flights I did out of East London, South Africa. The one trip was along the Wild Coast to Margate, with stops at Wavecrest Hotel for breakfast, a sight-seeing stop at Port St Johns and lunch at Margate before returning to East London. The second trip was from FAEL to Grahamstown (

  4. Mine was funny and embarrassing for me, made me turn red and lol. Before purchasing P3D I had referenced a tutorial or review video by a very popular maker of videos asking about the darkness of the inland water when viewed while flying. I had only seen a couple of videos by him so far and was calling him Floozy, I said Floozy several times mentioning his videos. The funny and embarrassing part was when a member here asked if I meant Froogle, I did, he thought it was hilarious. I love Froogle Sims videos, never meant any disrespect, was a noob to

  6. Rob, since you are on the Beta Team. Can I nominate you to talk to John and rest of the team to work on this area. 3 More regions are most needed here. Look at the potential revenue areas for Orbx here. There are tons of amazing airports for these regions. I can understand with the Pilotedge post - that this would be an excellent area to focus on. This would cover the best parts of the US in full detail. KEGE would sure need a patch to be in the regions lol.

  10. Mesh doesn't set the level of airports at all but does indeed reset the level of the terrain around them. It will make no difference whether you install the mesh before or after Vector which attempts to correct the airports for the mesh and not the other way round.. As Stewart says, running the Vector control panel after the installation of the mesh may be required but would also be required if the mesh was already installed when Vector was installed.

  12. Me too. I don't quite have all the ORBX airports, although I'm pretty close, but I have also found myself buying non ORBX airports in the Pacific, within a good distance of American Samoa, although the distance from is getting further and further. I have also been buying a lot of French airports since I started making my own PR of France, and a few from Norway, Sweden, Austria, Hungary, Italy......, and a lot of German Airports. I even bought Aerosoft's Antarctica and have installed and uninstalled without even flying there yet! Sales really suck; last ni

  14. I found it useful when flying through the Long Beach/Los Angeles basin to turn down cloud draw distance to 60 miles and to set autogen density to normal. My UT2 settings are 70/40 for airlines/GA. Flying over LAX frame never dropped below 19--slight stutters here and there, but at least not a slide show. Available VAS flying through the region never dipped below 900MB, and leaving the area, both figures rose to "normal" levels, 30fps and12-1300 MB. Aircraft used was the Quest Kodiak, not one to demand a lot of memory. Every other place in SoCal has not been a major problem when flying suc

  23. The UK2000 VFR airports Vol 2/Version 2 includes a pretty good representation of EGSC. And many more airports in Central England as well. The airport background texture colour blends well with ORBX FTX England in summer, but unfortunately not so well in the other seasons. But short of an ORBX airport, I expect this is the best we have.

  26. Wow. First off I must say I am overwhelmed by how you have each so generously and quickly come forward to solve my problem. Thank you so much! I'm going to uninstall only the client from the Windows Control Panel and then install only the P3D v3.1 client.msi from the full installer package. Will post the results here, and hopefully they will be good. Thanks again for your unhesitating help, really appreciate it! Best, Lucky ///////////////

  27. How bad would this be? After the Northrop F-5E, this is my favorite WW2 aircraft. My avatar image comes from a P-40E instrument panel. This is the A2A Curtiss P-40B Tomahawk in S43 airport. Cheers,

  28. You never know what surprises you might find flying in these places Doug. I posted this some time ago but I was flying from Alesunde to Trondheim in Norway and to my surprise I came upon my ancestral home on my father's side of Baverfjord. And it has a small airstrip named after my grandmother's maiden name. I was quite amazed and had to call my brother to tell him about it. I have visited Antwerp, my ancestral home on my mother's side, a number of times. Noel

  37. I built model airplanes and cars when young, but also grew up in the '60s and was fascinated with the astronauts, space travel, etc. When model rockets came out, I got hooked. Buy the kit (which was basically a toilet paper tube, balsa wood stock, and maybe a few plastic parts), then spend hours trying to get the "perfect" fins from carefully cutting the balsa wood, sanding the fins, numerous coats of liquid wood filler on them, and assembling and painting the whole thing. The first "starter" kit I built was a small rocket that used an "A" engine (engines were A through D at the time, A be
