  1. A look at the new flight sim for the first time from an experienced gamer....
  2. To all the good folk who have just emailed me offering a yoke thank you However my original post was put up in 2017 and I have since bought a new one Cheers all.
  3. YPPH would be fantastic addition to Australia as it is the gateway to Asia...put me down for a sale !!!
  4. Just wondering if anyone in Australia has a Saitek yolk they would like to sell me. The circuit board in mine has burned out and won't power up........and I don't want to try and fly via the keyboard. My rudder pedals and throttle quads are OK (I have tested them independently) but they need to be connected to a working yolk. If you can help let me know. Thanks.
  5. If it was not for ORBX I would have given this away many years ago. I remember way back I was gobsmacked when "VOZ" was released. Wondering how many of the "old" crew from the VOZ days are still around ?
  6. No1 is my father, he was a tail gunner in bombers during the 2nd world war. That was when the "tail end Charlie" was the prime target for the attacking fighters. I still have his "A/Gunner" chest badge that he wore. He never spoke of it much, but I now know what he went through. No 2 is my original flying instructor Arthur Turner who flew "Spitfires", also in WW2. He was a hard taskmaster and didn't suffer fools gladly, but I will never forget all he taught me. I will never forget the day when he was near the end of the runway watching me on a solo circuit. Just as I flared out before touchdo
  7. FINAL UPDATE Sadly John's wife has passed away peacefully surrounded by family. Spoke to him this morning. He asked me to say thanks on his behalf to all those who posted their thoughts and wishes. Even though some of you are a world apart, he considers each and every one of you a friend. When the time is right he said he will respond to you all personally.
  8. For the second day running now I have tried to notify members of a serious crisis facing one of our members (jaje) whose wife is dying. He specifically asked me to let people know what he was facing. For the second time my posts have been deleted...without warning, or explanation. Could someone please explain why posting of the crisis of a fellow member is so wrong.
  9. IT IS WITH A SAD HEART THAT i HAVE TO INFORM YOU ALL THAT John's wife Sue is gravely ill in hospital and doctors have informed him that the end is near. Family have flown to Tasmania to be with him, in this his darkest hour. He sent Jane and I a message last night asking us to call him asap and we had a feeling it was about Sue. This is what he said " Sue is desperately ill, and the doctor says that she is very close to the end - not responding to antibiotics at all, and her heart is giving up on her. I'll let you know later in the day. Our eldest daughter is flying in this morning, so I'm
  10. IT IS WITH A SAD HEART THAT i HAVE TO INFORM YOU ALL THAT JOHN Jobber's WIFE IS GRAVELY ILL. John's wife Sue is gravely ill in hospital and doctors have informed him that the end is near. Family have flown to Tasmania to be with him, in this his darkest hour. A lot of you may never have met or dealt with John (jaje) but he is one of the kindest, nicest, people you could ever come across in the Flight sim world He sent Jane and I a message last night asking us to call him asap and we had a feeling it was about Sue as she has been ill for some time. I replied and said I would call him first t
  11. Went there last year all the way from Oz and it was fantastic and well worth going :smile:
  12. One of our pilots just posted a link to this Taburet -Night 3D Oceania for FSX Any thoughts guy's
  13. Mallard, I agree entirely...in reality there is just nowhere to fly to/from in W.A. using ORBX. Would I fly YCUN to Broome with nothing along the way...NO . Would I fly the same route If I called in at YCAR or YGEL or YPLM and YPPD YES...YES and I would pay for the privilege
  14. Darryl I do have the OZx you are referring to and they have done a wonderful job in the far flung regional area's and the tiny "bush strips"...but I an talking here about a "Major Regional center" that is missing from W.A.
  15. Seems as if this thread is starting to die out. I would have thought at least one of the talented developers here, like Jarrad Marshall (who I knew years ago with Westsim Design) might have chipped in seeing as he is also a "local" boy and knows the significance of Kalgoorlie as a major regional airport. We have YCUN, which is great (thanks Jarrad)...YBLN which is a tiny airport of no significance at all in the scheme of things... and everything else in Western Australia is very basic.....Why fly from Perth to YCUN and not be able to go any further with ORBX...surely Kalgoorlie would be
  16. I posted this on OZx with little interest shown except TeeCee (thanks for the reply Terry) Is there a developer here that would like to tackle Kalgoorlie Airport YPKG. One of the busiest and well known regional mining centers in Western Australia. This is where I first started my flying career way back in 1981 . I remember letting out a big yell when I did my first solo (good job the mic button was not on). Unfortunately my instructor Arthur Turner (ex Spitfire pilot WW2) was killed at Kalgoorlie while attempting a landing during a major thunder storm. ......................
  17. Thankyou Martin, that is what I was looking for. Best regards
  18. Guy's, I once saw a nifty little way to add Traffic and terrain to the Garmin GPS. I have searched and cannot find it on the net. Anyone remember it ??
  19. Can we put her in the next update of the ORBX Libs...I am doing some scenery where she would fit in quite well,,,?
  20. I have now uninstalled FSX using Revo uninstaller and will try reinstalling it when I get home after work. Will create a folder in C\ drive called FSX and try and put it in there :banghead: Wish me luck
  21. Well sad to say I tried twice this morning to install the scenery (as administrator) and I still have the same problem Setup can not create the following folder: C:\Program Files(x86)\MicrosoftGames\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\ORBX\User Documents I opened the ORBX folder and it is showing (folder)FTX_NZ, (folder)Scripts, and what appears to be a file icon similar to Notebook with User Documents next to it with a file size of 4,141 KB. I am now very confused.
