  1. Team I’m not particularly active here anymore, though I do stop in most days. There continue to be many times when I marvel at the work you have done. I few a jet to the bottom of South America a few weeks back. Not only did I find scenery rivalling Alaska, there was a freeware airport to land at. The looping departure was delightful. Last week, I departed one of Mir’s airports bound for for Skopje. Again, the views... Finally yesterday, I was able to fly from Brazil to Italy, skirting the African coast, all with OpenLC beneath. I look forward to being able to do the same t
  2. Apologies for the necro-threading... I am having the same issue. I have the AI traffic installed in the main Orbx library, rather than the default scenery location. I had a duplicate RAAF bgl in both folders, so I 'off'ed the one in the default scenery location and reinstalled the package via Central (V4). The new bgls are all traffic_FTX dated March-May 2019. I couldn't find any traffic_orbx related to AU. Any ideas for what I'm not doing right? Thanks Mike
  3. Not much different to the dolphins in NT or North Queensland. Further south, in my neck of the woods, it’s either a dolphin or erm... white pointer.
  4. To twist the words of some guy who did commentary parodies... ‘don’t deserve the rain, straya. deserve to be thrashed here by India’. (now ducks for cover)
  5. A Wellington 34 STAR has Umaga and Jonah after two of its favourite sons.
  6. Very pleased to read this. As with others, I’m sticking with P3D until the first of three or four plane makers make the leap. So they will be first day buys.
  7. It’s an interesting conundrum. The scenery makers are in, boots and all. The ‘top line’ aircraft makers are going it’s not ready. Where the user sits possibly depends on which of those camps they belong in. Then there are those that have both and swap as they see fit.
  8. And how this hobby has been for years... the base sim is just that - a base for others to build on. It appears that the sim developers are more than happy to continue this arrangement is what seems to be a pretty constructive manner, base on the number of third party devs (including the usual suspects) already on board. I was gunna wait to pick up the base sim, with plenty still to do in V4. Kinda thinking I won't now... Mike
  9. You're right... When in 'Home', you can get to previews or general discussion. But to get back from general discussion to home you have to go back to public, then home. So it's one tap down, but two taps to get back up again to where you were. Mike
  10. Vector. Fit trees/buildings in as you can. Consider OpenLCs. You get a much better visual representation of the world going by. Far far fewer repeating tiles.
  11. Six and a half minutes isn't a million miles away from what you should expect. London is about the worst place in the world for flying around in. What doesn't help is that you're doing 650 knots at low level, so nothing can keep up as you try to make it throw pixels at the screen. It just can't do it. Head out into the countryside, and you should do better. Or slow down.
  12. Wasn’t the original (way back in the midst of time) plan to have Russia as a stand alone anyway? I’d be inclined to carve China and Japan off, along with SE Asia and Indonesia/PNG/Borneo, have Western Asia/India/Middle East/Persia as one, and Russia still stand alone.
  13. Team I’m sorting a new P3D drive. Is it right to say that the only thing that needs reinstalling is global base, and that all the rest is in the Orbx folder which I can simply copy (obviously cycle through running P3D and Central as needed to sync things) Cheers Mike
