  1. My family and I did that flight IRL in September last year. Spectacular to say the least. I repeat it regularly in P3d with Orbx. Best wishes bob
  2. Hi Doug Thanks for the help I removed NZWR and vector worked I have reinstalled NZWR is this OK? I also followed the other instruction and now P3DV4.5 starts without the error. Is it OK to reinstall NZWR? Being a KIWI I use this airport most of the time.
  3. Hi I started Orbx central today and there was a bunch of updates to install. I went ahead and installed the updates then tried to run Vector AEC. it reports Airport Elevation Correction has failed to complete. I have tried to verify files. reboot.etc but it still will not complete. Also when i try to load a flight on P3d V4.5 I get Path not Found. E:/Prepar 3Dv4\E:\Orbx_Library\P3dv4\AU AustraliaV2\Orbx\FTX_AU\FTXAUv2_05_SCENERY\scenery\*objectflow.xml. If I recall correctly, Australia and Library's and objectflow all required updating but Vector did not. Thanks in advance if you can help. Best wishes Bob
  4. Hi Nick Thanks for the response, However: I have copied the entire library folder to an external drive My plan was to un install the HD version through Orbx Central Install the SD versions through Orbx Central. ALSO mack a copy of the SD version to the external hard drive But, my question is If I am not happy with the SD version and I want to go back to the HD version which will be copied to the External drive and not connected to the PC I know I can copy the HD version back to the SSD But how do I tell Orbx and X Plane to use it? Up until a few months ago this would not have been an issue as we had the option of manual download, which I always took. So I could have switched without downloading again I am sure there will be a way to do this but I don't know what it is. Best wishes Bob
  5. Hi all I have all true earth products for x plain installed. (the HD version) into a library folder outside of X-Plane . However, I am running short of SSD space so I am considering switching to the SD version. I have made a copy of the library to a external drive, I believe I can switch back to the HD version later without down loading the over 1 TB of scenery again. However I have no clue as to how I do this! I know I need to uninstall the HD versions to be able to install the SD version I know I can then install the SD versions I know I could then copy the SD version to a external hard drive Then I have will have both, the HD and SD versions on the external drive However, what do I need to do if I don't like the lower quality of the SD versions? and wish to replace them with the copied version of the HD version? I don't like the thought of re installing the full 1.?? TB again. Thanks in advance if you can help Best wishes Bob
  6. Hey, that my sister you are talking about. So I can confirm. If she finds out you may not be a dead duck, BUT you will wish you were! Excellent shots Adam. I am glad you got it looking better. Now if only Lockheed Martin would fix the falling out of the sky on finals issue. Best wishes Bob
  7. Hi I also have something similar although I have crash detection off On approach to NZMF I suddenly fall from the sky and end up driving the last few hundred meters over the water to the runway. NZSI scenery only as NZMF airport is not vet compatible with V5 The same on a small airport just north of mount Kilimanjaro. I am not sure of the airport code Using Orbx Africa LC I am sure this will be fixed and I think P3dV5 is showing great potential i am also extremely happy that so many Orbx products work with V5 so early Best wishes Bob
  8. Hi all I hope I am asking this question in the correct place. My flight sim PC is set up a little strange: I have duel boot both Windows 10 Pro on separate tiny SSD Boot one is for P3D V4.5 which is installed on a on a 1 tb SSD with all my Orbx products inside the P3dV4.5 folder. The second boot has X-plane 11 installed on a 4th SSD I wish to install P3d V5 using the same boot as X-Plane 11 My understanding is, Orbx are fine with customers installing what they own 2 times on the same PC, which I will be doing although its on a separate boot How do I copy all my existing Orbx products from inside the P3D V4.5 folder to a separate drive in P3dv5? In P3dv5, I would like to install outside of the P3dv5 folder as advised. Or would I be better to simply re install the lot Please note, my odbx folder in P3dV4.5 is large, 460 gig, If I could avoid it I would rather not re download the lot. Thanks in advance if you can help. Best wishes Bob
  9. Hi all I contacted //42 support and Kevin reported chase plane forces a log on once in a while to update. A problem for me as my flightsim PC is not online. Hope this helps. Best wishes Bob
  10. Hi Sorry I cant help any more. I think Orbx Central did say 1.1.69 but it also indicated a update is available. I asked Orbx Central to update Chase Plane , it did update, it now reports version 1.1.72. The PC is is currently back in its usual place (not connected to the internet and working. Until the next time comes around and forces us to go through this again. I am not happy about this and have raised a support ticket with //42 Perhaps if you UN-install and re install?? However I don't know too much about this stuff and that may be bad advice. I feel this forcing a update, even if it is not required in not good practice and intrusive. I am also concerned that Kevin is not active on this support forum. What else can we do if a product we bought in good faith stops working due to the developer having a time limit for how long it will go without requiring a update, even though it is working fine. Then, as in your case the update will not work. Best wishes and good luck Bob
  11. Hi all I have been using Orbx products for almost 10 years on a PC that is not normal connected to the internet. Recently with Chase Plane moving to Orbx central I transfers my chase plane to Orbx To do this I need to move my PC to a new location as where I have it set up has no internet connection. Recently (I think only chase Plane) stopped working. I raised a support ticket withe // 42 and received the following this morning Hi Bob, ChasePlane/Orbx does check for licenses and requires a connection to the server every once in a while. You need to connect to the internet and update Orbx Central/ChasePlane for it to work again I do not recall ever having to do this in the past 10 years for all other Orbx products. For me this is a significant issue as due to COVID-19 NZ is in total lock down for a month. I do not have the ability to purchase additional hard ware to enable easy internet connection Can someone from Orbx confirm if this is indeed the case and provide any advise. Thanks in advance if you can help. Best wishes Bob.
  12. Hi I along with others also asked this question, I also raised a support ticket. Keven, who I understand is the developer, replied with "ChasePlane/Orbx does check for licenses and requires a connection to the server every once in a while" You may find it will fix your problem if you are able to go into Orbx central and update Chase Plane, my version is a little later than your its 1.1.72 For me this is a problem as: New Zealand is in lock down for a month, due to COVID – 19 Due to the lock down I do not have the ability to purchase hardware (switches modems or wireless adapters) to enable my flight sim PC to connect to the internet. If chase plane requires this connection it will prevent me from using P3D, as when chase plane does not work my views are completely wrong. If this had been known before I could have prepared by buying some hardware. I don't believe it is Orbx as I have had Orbx products for close to 10 years and never had this issue Please note I believe Chase Plane is excellent therefore I do not want to lose the ability to use it. However if it requires a connection in the next month!!!. Best wishes and good luck Bob
  13. Hi all I received an answer from my support ticket. Kevin did confirm that "ChasePlane/Orbx does check for licenses and requires a connection to the server every once in a while" For me this is a significant problem over the next month because" New Zealand is in lock down for a month, due to COVID – 19 Due to the lock down I do not have the ability to purchase hardware (switches modems or wireless adapters) to enable my flight sim PC to connect to the internet. If chase plane requires this connection it will prevent me from using P3D, as when chase plane does not work my views are completely wrong. If this had been known before I could have prepared by buying some hardware. I don't believe it is Orbx as I have had Orbx products for close to 10 years and never had this issue Please note I believe Chase Plane is excellent therefore I do not want to lose the ability to use it. However if it requires a connection in the next month does anyone know how to get my old views back. Also this will be a issue as I have changed my control set up to suite chase plane. Best wishes Bob
  14. Hi Both Thanks I did not know that. Best wishes Bob
