  1. looking amazing.. would love to have this paired with Teesside International, 30 miles south
  2. I really hope that this includes some landmarks for Newcastle because FS2020 is PANTS for that.. not even the Tyne Bridge or Millenium Bridge and Sage! David, Newcastle
  3. looking good. my son was born in the hospital next to the airport. a special place. (missing the Ninewells wind turbine though) David
  4. i reinstalled to community folder using Orbx all sorted now
  5. Hi John. I cracked it... my other installs are in the community folder.. Dundee got installed to the Orbx Library location and didnt show up. I uninstalled Dundee, deleted the Orbx/msfs folder and reinstalled to the community library... and all sorted. It seems that MSFS doesnt like a mixture of the two locations. David
  6. Hi - I have all the UK Scenery so far released for FS2020 and haven't had this problem before: Dundee isn't appearing! I've verified files, no luck.. reinstalled.. nothing. I'm using the latest patch of FS2020. I've copied yday's log: 2020-11-16T16:55:18.875Z [INFO] [Main] - Orbx Central - 4.1.23 2020-11-16T16:55:18.876Z [INFO] [Main] - Windows_NT 10.0.19042 2020-11-16T16:55:18.876Z [DEBUG] [Main] - env APPDATA: C:\Users\dvwdf\AppData\Roaming 2020-11-16T16:55:18.877Z [DEBUG] [Main] - env PROGRAMDATA: C:\ProgramData 2020-11-16T16:55:18.877Z [DEBUG] [Main] - env
  7. well, that seems to have solved the problem.. used a June old scenery.cfg as the current one and let Orbx Central sync it. proper job.
  8. yes it says it is looking in the correct place. ok.. I will take an older scenery.cfg from the summer, rename the current one and save the older one as "scenery.cfg" - i'll then sync them in central and see how P3D responds.
  9. I know Orbx Central is creating a path that the client doesn't like. I uninstalled and reinstalled the client but this hasn't sorted the problem at all.
  10. Hi - I seem to have problems with my scenery.cfg It all started when I tried updating to 5.1 from 5.0 Anyway, now Orbx Central keeps creating invalid paths when I sync the libraries I get the error "scenery's remote directory is not valid" can anyone give me an easy fix to this? David
  11. Seems like good practice to re-live lessons on the sim. anyway here's some Orbx screenshots versus yesterday's lesson. Sorry for any duplication - can't work out how to delete the other post in the general forum So, Piper Cherokee is the same and the views are pretty close to the same. Enjoy
  12. Here's a screenshot of Croxdale from TE England as a comparison
  13. Dude - I'm still waiting for FSX to be 100% bug free Fact is that the Premium edition is offering 300-500 dollars worth of add-ons in the bundle. sounds a reasonable deal.
  14. It's hard to stick to the standard version when EGLL, Frankfurt and Dubai are Premium only. I had noticed LOWI and KTEX in the MS FS2020 release details and thought "Orbx" at once
  15. I don't expect a business to hand out free products for a next gen sim (Many of us have 1TB plus of Orbx addons) but I know Orbx Central does discounts based on existing purchases so I'd hope the loyalty is rewarded in some way.
  16. easy... due north after midnight I could see it plain as anything even while driving up the A68 here's 5x2 second exposures stacked - from my Nikon D7200 Comet Neowise by Dave Woodford, on Flickr
  17. some companies such as A2A make it easy to reskin their aircraft or supply photoshop templates to do it yourself
  18. Built for the Llangollen Canal in 1805, the aqueduct is over 1000ft long and 120ft above the River Dee. Engineer was Thomas Telford. There's no railings on one side, so cruising a boat over it can be tricky if you suffer from vertigo. Here it's presented with the real world weather and shaders set all the way up to WELSH SUMMER Just a short 10 mins air time from Welshpool Airfield
  19. Without TE GB or LC England, Newcastle City Centre will look pretty bad (no bridges, landmarks) unless you have some other product
  20. Love the AI ships on the Mersey today:
  21. Welcome to Cwmdu in the shadow of Mynydd Ddu, Brecon Beacons National Park.
  22. Welcome to World Heritage Site Hadrian's Wall Country.. Emperor Hadrian had a wall built in AD 122 to keep out the northern raiders. It runs from coast to coast. In this picture the line of the Roman Wall follows the ridge to the left of the wingtip. The ridge is called The Sill. The road was built by General Wade in the 1740s to allow the redcoats to get around easier and is called The Military Road. The building at the bottom of the pic is The Sill visitors centre.. (with lockdown I picked a really bad time to renew my car park season ticket lol) Beyond the right wingtip is the ancient fort
  23. Definitely one of my favourite real life VFR destinations from Teesside Airport - Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle & Carlisle Railway.. True Earth England
  24. There's a few LITE airports out there like the one produced for GOBD - cost less because not a lot of demand for such places. Saying that, even the sim doesnt know about that particular principal international airport. Which is very Africa.
