  1. Hi guys. Thanks for the X Plane YBRM scenery pack earlier this year, With so many of us now going over to X Plane, is there a possible chance of some more Aussie scenery, like YBCS for instance? JohnG
  2. I have spent about 7 years flying FSX with dozens of addons including many different Orbx sceneries. I have always held the quality and high detail of Orbx products in high regard. Recently, I gave XPLANE a try. I was immediately impressed so much, I have now migrated to this great simulator. Being a 64 bit system like P3D it runs very smoothly indeed and the graphics are fantastic. Every day there are many like myself who are becoming X Plane enthusiasts, and I for one, would love to see some of the well known ORBX Australian sceneries like YBRM and YBCS being made available, if possible, for X Plane. Thanking You, J G
  3. I'm sure a splendid rendition of WA's Perth airport will appear in the not too distant future. YPPH, is a favorite destination for many simmers including myself and deserving of a place in the ORBX / FTX library. Come on guys, 4 months maybe?
  4. Hi Ian, I tried to attach some photos however, I was unsuccesful in the process. Not sure what I'm doing in that regard. Actually, I think the airport taxiways and runway 01 at YBBN are supposed to be like the way I see them. I did a complete reinstall after my post, leaving out my free demo BLUE Tasmania section and the Australia SP4. Now the white patches are gone. There is also an improvement in the resolution of the taxiways to the point where the yellow marker lines are fairly well defined on the surface. However, the edges are still somewhat fuzzy. My ORBX YBBN FSX Control Panel is set to Default ground polys and the main runway 01 is now somewhat better defined. Still could be a lot better though. I have read that the runways and taxiway textures were probably designed like this for realism but to me it's like looking through a pair of foggy glasses. John
  5. FSS0186026 Hello, I seem to be having lots of problems with ORBX's FTX AU YBBN. I'm aware that being such a detailed chunk of scenery the YBBN package will not run very well on low end PC's. However, the computer I have is an AMD 8 core 64 bit system running a AMD Radeon HD7700 Graphics card with 1 gig of RAM and 8 Gigs of on-board RAM. My HDD is a healthy I Tigabyte. This system is fairly fast and runs everything else in FSX smoothly. I have the following ORBX products installed, including FTX AU YBBN BRISBANE: FTX AA ORBX LIBRARIES VER 120825 August 25th 2012 FTX AU BLUE SP3 (TASMANIA SPRING SEASON DEMO) OCT 2009 FTX AU GOLD SP3 AUGUST 2009 FTX AU GREEN SP3 AUGUST 2009 FTX AU HOLGERMESH V1.0 (SP3) FTX AU YBBN BRISBANE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT VERSION 1.21 - May 2011 FTX AU YCDR CALOUNDRA AIRPORT VERSION 1.4 - March 2011 FTX AU YRED REDCLIFFE AIRPORT VERSION 3.0 (SP3) October 2009 FTX AUSTRALIA SP4.002 - MAY 2011 ORBX FTX BOB FIRST PERSON MODE VERSION 1.1 JULY 2010 The first thing I noticed with Brisbane Airport were the taxiways which appeared like limestone roads.This can't be right. I have played around with the settings on the YBBN Control Panel to try and correct the appearance. The default ground poly setting is perhaps the best selection but leaves a lot to be desired. Runway 01 appears like a runway from FlightSim '95 and yet the runway lights are sharp and defined. Everything else in FTX AU YBBN BRISBANE, is fantastic, beautifully crafted. However, when coming in to land the whole experience is spoilt by white patches appearing in and around the airport and on the runway itself. Twice FSX has crashed when using YBBN. All other ORBX packages run smoothly with no problems so I'm beginning to think I should remove the FTX AU YBBN BRISBANE program and re-install it but I'm not sure how to go about this as I want to make sure that all the old files are erased. Do I just delete YBBN in the ORBX program folder in FSX? I know others have experienced the same problems with this package. Does it require a patch perhaps? I'm really hoping someone can help as I really love this airport. Cheers, John
  6. Hi Willow, Wolter and Graham, I am following this thread with interest as I have exactly the same thing happening with the taxiways and runways on my ORBX - FTX: AU YBBN BRISBANE AIRPORT installation. The taxiways look like chalk roads and the runways look like something out of FS95. I do not have any other add-ons apart from ORBX FTX and I have installed .NET Framework v4.0, FSX SP1 & 2. My installed products are listed below. Caloundra airport and Redcliffe airport are fine. Everything except the runways, taxiways, and aprons at YBBN is fantastic. What a let down though. What could be doing this, Surely this appears specific to this one product. Hoping for any more input, John FTX AA ORBX LIBRARIES VER 120825 August 25th 2012 FTX AU BLUE SP3 (TASMANIA SPRING SEASON DEMO) OCT 2009 FTX AU GOLD SP3 AUGUST 2009 FTX AU GREEN SP3 AUGUST 2009 FTX AU HOLGERMESH V1.0 (SP3) FTX AU YBBN BRISBANE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT VERSION 1.21 - May 2011 FTX AU YCDR CALOUNDRA AIRPORT VERSION 1.4 - March 2011 FTX AU YRED REDCLIFFE AIRPORT VERSION 3.0 (SP3) October 2009 FTX AUSTRALIA SP4.002 - MAY 2011 ORBX FTX BOB FIRST PERSON MODE VERSION 1.1 JULY 2010
