  1. I recognise that green container. Kings Canyon?
  2. From a brief google search. So investigate dynamic disks. But you may loose data on the second disk. There is no need for third party utilities this time, for that you'll have to convert your disks to what Windows calls "dynamic disk" and then extend the volume across disks.
  3. When creating the scenery the ILS had not been implemented and Air Services was giving the frequency as 111.50. Upon installation of the ILS it turned out to be 111.10. There is another thread(s) on this board about the subject and someone has actually written a correction.
  4. It didn't even rate an addition in AU2 so I doubt that it will be done as an individual airport (and it is available in OZx as you said).
  5. @patful. I suspect that the PMDG 737 800 could be a factor here.
  6. I have a "mid range" computer also. I have had to disable Gold Coast cityscene as I got the VAS chimes in FSX after about 8 mins. In a 32 bit program, the program is limited to 4 gb of memory. In a 64 bit program (P3Dv4?) the memory available is far greater than this. I presume you are using FSX. Thus FSX has a mere 4gb to store stuff it is working on and tends to run out of memory the more stuff it has to work on = VAS problems. VAS is dependant on general memory for storing objects and textures (among other things). The memory on a graphics card is used to display things in the visual field (basically). So getting a better graphics card will not help with VAS problems. To explore the other side of the coin, if you were getting stutters or may be low frame rates then a better graphics card would help.
  7. Too salty to be lake Amadeus (another photoreal dry lake). Was flying around central Australia in AU2 yesterday. Orbx staff have done well to put various photoreal areas around AU2.
  8. Gold Coast cityscene covers Coolangatta to Nerang to Coomera as far as I remember. Other users may be able to provide far more accurate northern coverage.
  9. In Australia there used to be "Broadband for Seniors" kiosks (several on the Gold Coast), where you could go with your USB stick or external hard drive, and use their computers for free to download large files. Due to the length of time of download, you would have to allow others access to the computer. As long as you stipulated why (this is my major hobby) and the supervisor agreed, you could generally do it. Alas, this scheme ended a couple of years ago, but the resources were transferred to other organisations. May be you can locate one of these organisations.
  10. First step. Everything is now done by a program that you download called FTX Central. Go to https://orbxdirect.com/ and up in the left hand corner there is a green square that says "Get FTX Central". Click on it and download and install the program. I'll let others tell you what to do after you have successfully done that, although you may figure out how to upgrade SP3 to SP4 yourself. Edit - Ooops. I see that you already have FTX Central.
  11. Or get it from the horses mouth. https://www.airservicesaustralia.com/aip/current/dap/AeroProcChartsTOC.htm
  12. My understanding is that it will be the last of the LCs to be developed.
  13. Will you be mainly flying in Australia or the pacific?
