  1. Looks like a Pyramid for an infant to me. Be careful around it Sue, it could carry an old Egyptian curse! John
  2. Brilliant. Just Brilliant Iain. Keep 'em coming. John
  3. Yep, well done as usual Iain. You know, I sometimes wonder if you get any sleep at all?!! John
  4. Super shots and merry Christmas to you too Aces. The FEX/REX discussion is going on in Horizon's forum too. Its difficult. From what I understand, the weather engine in REX isn't very good at all and its non existant still in FEX. The clouds in FEX are superior to those in REX which apparently is rather limited on adjustments. However, the water animation, and maybe the colours of the water in REX are somewhat better than the FEX/FSWC combination. Apparently at the moment there are one or two fixes needed in REX too. So, its a dilemma. I've got FEX, and because I'm now familiar with it and quite like the way it works to support the real world weather in FSX I've decided to stay with it and wait for one or the other to become a complete product and then make up my mind as to which one I'm going to end up with. I'm certainly not going to try to work with both as some people seem to be doing. I've a funny feeling I'll be sticking with FEX/FSWC though. I quite like the people behind it and who are struggling a bit and I do like the efficient way the products work with no fuss or problems. Well, that's had my say! John
  5. Another phsycho... well, that word I cannot spell. I don't like those paint jobs. Reminds me of the weird young men of the sixties all hair, unclean and bad behaviour. Ugh. On the other hand it's a good exciting pic Dogdor. John
  6. Yes, well the pics are certainly good Alain. And there doesn't seem much that you have to put right either......hm...except the Country that is! I flew from Vegas in real world weather yesterday. No sign of snow! It's all a con! John
  7. Fabulous Paul. Thanks for the laugh. John
  8. Excellent. Did the guy in the boat survive? John
  9. Very impressive but I don't think I would want to fly in a 'plane like that. The pilot must be a 'hippy'. John
  10. Excellent shots jankees. Liked 'em. Season's Greetings. John
  11. Yes, but as has been said earlier, unless you save the setting, each time you change a scenery setting or maybe something else it will revert to 4.5, especially if you do it on the fly. John
  12. Lovely shots Iain. About Rex - I'm sticking with FEX. From what I've seen, I still think its better overall. The clouds seem softer and more subtle somehow. But I do like the REX water. John
  13. Very nice pictures. I bet your heart was in your mouth as you just cleared those trees! John
  14. I really like that last one. Smashing! John
  15. That's great and Season's Greetings to you too. Well done. John
  16. He's not going to post shots of losing his virginity is he? John
  17. Just wish to add my best wishes to you and especially your wife John. Let's hope its the better news you hope for after Chrismas. John
  18. Yes that's it Norman. In the end, it becomes part of the set-up for FSX because you just click 'load' on the first page, navigate to your saved settings cfg, click open and there you go, you have those particular settings logged in the FSX for you. John
  19. Thank goodness for that! What a wonderful solution. John
  20. I've got them too. The pics I mean. It's the low frame rate that's the cause of me never using the glass cockpits in FSX default aircraft although I must say I like them very much. So much easier to fly.....if you like staggering along! John
  21. Oh my. They didn't include this in the instructions. My FTX was turned on. What I've done is left it turned on and copied the contents of the backup file back to FSX, turned FTX off and then copied the enhancement back to FSX. I must say it was very noticeable that the were a lot less files to copy back when FTX was off! I'm hoping this does the trick. It should because it is exactly what the backup file is for. Thanks for pointing this out fellers. I'm really greatful. John
  22. Yes Alex I noticed. These diversions take time away from the main purpose but are, as you say, interesting to visit and if I don't do them straight away, I'll never do them later. By the way. Sorry, going off subject. Have you seen the latest download on Avsim to improve the Textures in FSX? Sorry I can't copy and paste the link for some reason so I'm having to type it. Hope I get it right; >http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=&Name=&FileName=fsx enhanced autogen.zip&Author=&CatID=root This came from a link in the GEX forum but providing you have a Vatsim account it'll probably take you there. These textures completely replace the main texture file in the FSX program files with enhaced building, lighting etc worldwide. As it only replaces what's already there it shouldn't affect anything we all have in add on scenery except of course in GEX which of course uses it. As the original files are backed up in a special folder, if it becomes a nuisance its easy enough to get the original FSX Texture back by overwriting the new by the copy and paste method. John
  23. Thanks fellers. Investigating. John
  24. Yeah, I knew I could depend on you Alex for a sensible answer! Thanks Penzoil3 but it really didn't answer the qustion. John
