  1. I think you're missing the big picture here Nick. I say your dismissive response to Gripper Sim in the other thread on this MSFS London Landmarks product. Rather than shooing off annoying customers, I hope you're feeding this up the line to John. .....because as it is, this release is going to set Orbx back years, and seriously damage their reputation in the community. (=lost sales). Seriously, this needs to be pulled until it's seriously improved.
  2. Just saw Grippersim's video, and simply cannot believe what I am seeing. The texturing quality and resolution is staggeringly poor. This is literally paying to downgrade the visual quality of the core MSFS product. Literally, flabbergasted that this has been released in this state!
  3. Hey guys, Just picked up Netherlands TrueEarth - it's fantastic! I did notice that a KMZ was not included with this one. I'd like to view the location of the 43 airports, to help with planning flights. I don't suppose any users have produced a KMZ for Netherlands? Cheers.
  4. This is Exactly what I was looking for, thank you! There are dozens of KMZ files across the 'net for the NA packs, but I couldn't fina any for the EU packs until now. Great work
  5. I do share this view. I love my Regions, but it's areas like OpenLC EU that I want to explore more (it's so vast!), and that is where I'd like to see more Orbx payware airports. Great that we got some amazing freeware for Germany from Thomas (EDBH, EDVR, etc - amazing), and now Porta Westfalia, but those are all in Germany. I'd like to see Orbx payware for interesting countries like;- - Spain - Portgual - Scandinavian / Nordic countries - Eastern Europe: Romania, for example, is stunning in OpenLC EU anyhoo! ........... there is one region I would desperately love to s
  6. a picture says more than a thousand words ........ FTX Norway has been downloading for 8 hours and 16 minutes today........ with constant dropouts. Currently at 99.5% and the download speed from FSS now at 9.7 kb/s ......
  7. UPDATE after constant failed downloads, I attempted to use FlashGet download manager to download FTX Norway. It ran for just under 4 hours, reaching 66.9% of the download, before then reporting a dropped connection from FSS, and a 0kb/s download speed. Still not able to download my FTX Norway purchase from FSS. FTX Norway is still the main 'banner' product shown on the front page of the Orbx website, and yet two of the usual FSS servers aren't available at all, and the two that are "CDN Global 1&2" have been so slow and unreliable today, that it's not been possible t
  8. Hello Gents, This is an unashamed moan - but not at Orbx, at FSS. I bought FTX Norway today and have been trying constantly to download my product, however the only download options available are the "Global CDN 1 & 2" options (there are no 'My FTX' or 'Google Cloud' options), and the offered download speeds all day have been horribly slow. I am currently getting under 100kb/s, and am being quoted that it will take 3 days to download FTX Norway's 3.6Gb files. To me this is a wholly unacceptable service. I am on a Fibre Optic High Speed Broadband connection and have veri
  9. Yeah, that's exactly what I was trying to say in long-winded post It seems that people who did what you did, and only have FSX:SE installed, are having problems with installers still trying to find the old FSX location. I kept my original FSX installed (and to be honest expected to have heaps of problems), and all installers I try are correctly finding the new Steam location. Very strange!
  10. One thing I've noticed regarding FSX:SE from 3 or 4 FS forums, is that not everyone is seeing the same results from trying to install the same existing addons into FSX:SE. I installed FSX:SE whilst still having the original FSX installed. My experience of then installing existing addons in to FSX:SE has been remarkably positive. Almost all (including all Orbx ones so far) installers are automatically finding and pointing to my FSX:SE location. Those that don't, usually let me manually change the file path to the FSX:SE location anyway. But I've seen other people attempting to install
  11. No that definitely won't work. I kept the boxed version of FSX installed on my PC, and then installed FSX:SE afterwards. All of the FTX Global, Vector, etc installers that I have run, have automatically located FSX:SE in it's correct location ( C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\FSX ) without me having to do anything. I haven't gotten around to installing FTX England yet though, to check that. When you run the FTX England installer, and see the old (MS) path, is there a 'browse' button or icon that would allow you to manually browse to the FSX:SE location, that I've quote
  12. Just a tip for other users of this (in case you're a bit thick like me ) ; When installing you put all 8 'months' (seasons) into your scenery library........... .........but you only 'activate' the current month!! I tried the scenery at first, and as beautiful as it is, I had 6 FPS at most of the little airfields. It didn't seems right, so I experimented a little and realised that I'd activated all 8 month seasons - so effectively, I was rendering 8 versions of each airport at a time in the sim, on top of eachother!! Once I deactivated all seasons apart from 'December' the airports
