  1. To the latter, you are best to leave it installed in FSX before you install in P3D. It will make the process faster. You can have in both at once. Pretty sure if you can run FSX, you can run P3D. Mike
  2. https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1oMki4fAslLZKQiCQIn2fNSvvzG0&hl=en&ll=45.04727728000116%2C-96.10744385557757&z=4 Northern Rockies. The map is a bit out of date, but suits your needs. Welcome to the forum.
  3. Flightbeam have Orbx compatible textures in most (all?) cases. FT have them for at least some. Don’t recall any for FSDT, but that doesn’t mean they’re not there. I have airports from all of these plus PacSim. While there are sometimes obvious transitions, I don’t find any are deal breakers. YMMV.
  4. What makes anyone think MSFS is going to affect P3D in LMs terms? The hobby simmer (for want of a better description) isn't their target market - Exhibit A is A2As May update. We're probably a tolerated, sometimes useful and usually fickle corner. They're not going to shut it down if we all stump off to MSFS. Those who like more historic flight might find themselves stuck in MSFS. I can't imagine it will contain the existing ground based nav aids that still date from the mid 2000's in P3D that were so necessary for getting around in the days of steam.
  5. This might be a long bow to draw... OLC Africa and Asia were on the back burner for a loooong time. Now both are intended to be out by the end of the year. MSFS comes along. Coincidence? Possibly. Or perhaps they fit, given much of those places might be short of data for MSFS. Either way, I’m buying both for P3D because MSFS won’t be ‘complete’ on Day 1. It will take time for the assorted third party stuff to come on line. Mike
  6. A mere 46. My daughter was on the Cherokee at 4. Dual time, of course. Does that count?
  7. Looks like the .bmp wasn't flipped before saving the .dds (or was when it shouldn't have been). Show me a painter who hasn't done that at last once! Mike Note - you might even be able to fix it yourself. Download DXTbmp, open the dds, flip it (an up/down arrow button on the bottom left) and save. Can't see why it wouldn't work. Edit again: I've just downloaded and installed. Looks fine. It's an updated zip file. Try re-downloading and re-install.
  8. Probably best we don't start on cockney rhyme... people would get completely lost. Dearly beloved becomes trouble & strife Let's 'ave a butchers means to take a look at something The beginning of Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels had me barely able to keep up.
  9. umm... when the yearned for ‘golden generation’ were approaching the peak of their political influence (25 in ‘45 made you 50 in 1970). Ironic? The inter generational argument is centuries old and will go on until one screws it up (& some would argue we’ve passed that point already). The previous generation would argue they’ve given the next everything they could want. The next would argue they’ve been set up to fail. The golden generation was set up to suffer by those who took everything they could in the roaring ‘20s. Sorry, these discussions make me a little mad when the simplistic argument blamestorming starts. On a lighter note, I smiled to myself when a teenaged passenger in the car asked whether my car was a manual. That’s a sign I’m getting on a bit.
  10. So... I took off from one 7,600' airport, flew for 2 hours and landed at another 7,600' airport. This is going to look gorgeous once it's no longer default LC. From Addis Ababa to Asmara. and I'm at 19k'.... Just over the ridge it drops very quickly to only a couple of hundred feet. Must be a real steep drop, but I never got that far... Sorry... got carried away again...
  11. Those photos are fantastic. Could not pick a favourite (but one does a Spitfire...). Mike
  12. Cricket rules: You have two sides, one out in the field and one in Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out Sometimes you get men still in and not outWhen a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game I can't understand what's so hard about that.
  13. Soccer is about the most simple ball sport in the world. Cricket, on the other hand... full of subtleties & nuances.
