  1. Thankyou Nick. That's done it! It's the only file beginning with 'ORBX' in that folder, which I thought was strange, but the "Use Au v2" preference remains selected now for Tamworth. Really appreciate your help. pngflyer
  2. Hi again Nick, I have checked and I have 1 of each file out of the pairs you listed in the FTXAA_YSTW\scenery folder. However I have neither of the following 2 files in the FTXAUv2_05_SCENERY\Scenery\ location : <onPath>ORBX\FTX_AU\FTXAUv2_05_SCENERY\Scenery\ORBX_AUV2_YSTW_Windsocks_ObjectFlow.xml.OFF</onPath> <offPath>ORBX\FTX_AU\FTXAUv2_05_SCENERY\Scenery\ORBX_AUV2_YSTW_Windsocks_ObjectFlow.xml</offPath> I'm guessing that this is the problem, based on what you wrote earlier. What can I do about this? pngflyer
  3. Hi again Nick, My textures are looking much better. No more floating houses, and nothing which I can be certain is wrong. So we can call that issue fixed. Re the YSTW control panel not keeping my "use AU v2" preference, I'm still looking for a solution. In the ORBX YSTW airport folder there are only two sets of "pairs" where one has the AU v2 in the file name. APX_YSTW.BGL.OFF APX_YSTW_AUv2.bgl or cvx_YSTW_APX_Mesh_Blend_AUv2.BGL cvx_YSTW_APX_Mesh_Blend.BGL.OFF You said "look in the airport folder(s) for files with auv2 in the name and if you see both .bgl and .bgl.off versions, delete the .bgl versions." Problem is, I can't find any pairs with the "on" & "off" together with the AUv2 reference. Where to now? pngflyer
  4. Thanks Nick. Right, gotcha. I mentioned the control panel issue in case it could have affected the textures which were loaded, but that's an issue in itself. Will check out the bgl's for Tamworth. Thankyou for your help re textures too. I'll try you're suggestions.. pngflyer.
  5. Hi Nick. Thanks for your help. Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but my problem is not with an airport. It's with textures which overlap and bleed through in places where there should be only one texture visible (like in my second screenshot above). There are also patches of water in places they shouldn't be, random square bodies of water, or bits of rivers showing through, which then end at the boundary of another tile. My airports are displaying correctly. Any other ideas? pngflyer
  6. Hi Nick, Scenery.cfg file attached. Thankyou, pngflyer scenery.cfg
  7. Hi Doug, Thanks for replying... I have since installed the lastest/new version of FTX Central, and have configured each of the airports which allow it. However, when I tick the option to use AU v2 for Tamworth in the control panel for that airport, the tick appears, but the preference never registers. That is, when I go back to the configuration options, the "use AU v2" option is always unticked again. Re my original problems, the things you have suggested have solved the floating houses problem in that area. However the textures are still not displaying correctly, and I can still see bleed through and conflicting textures. In fact I now have some water showing where previously there was none. Some of these water bodies are square, and some are obviously parts of river textures in other texture levels. So, there are still issues remaining. What else can I try? pngflyer
  8. Hi, I'm having some issues with textures and elevations around Newcastle, NSW in AU v2. Haven't yet checked whether these issues exist elsewhere or not. Houses are floating (pic 1), there is texture bleedthrough and bluriness (pic 3) and there are also areas with alternate textures showing through (pic 2). Have uninstalled Au v1 and the original Holgermesh for Au, before installing AU v2. Have also uninstalled all 3rd party sceneries like Ozx sceneries and libraries, as well as removed them from the scenery library. Would appreciate any help on how to fix these problems. Thankyou, pngflyer
  9. Hi all, Quick question. Can someone confirm something for me please. I'm wanting to purchase Au V2 but am I correct in my assumption that my ORBX Au airports will not fit correctly, until there are some compatibility updates released? If this is the case I'll hold off until it's completely ready. Thankyou, pngflyer
  10. Hi guys, Personally, I'd love to see some more PNG scenery, particularly anything which I will build on what you've already made. For example, a Rabaul airport with its nearby volcano and proximity to New Ireland would be a great pairing with the existing Jacksons for larger aircraft, or perhaps Bouganville with the truly spectacular Buka Passage and surrounds. These larger airports could be "fillled in" with some smaller bush strips such as Lele in East New Britain, or Bili which has a spectacular take off, though I'm not sure if it's still open. What about Hoskins in West New Britain for a real life Moresby, Rabaul, Hoskins, Moresby flight? The terrain at Hoskins makes for a challenging flight in bad weather. What about a Kavieng for a real life short hop from Rabaul overnight and then return to Moresby? All of these places have some incredible scenery around them. Just my 2c... pngflyer
  11. Hi John, I'm wondering if a Newcastle Citiscape is still on the cards? This was mentioned in the Cessnock user guide a long time ago, as was a Newcaslte/RAAF Williamtown airport scenery. Whatever the case, I'm really pleased to hear that there are more Aussie airports inbound. Thankyou. pngflyer
  12. Hi devs, I have a question for you. I did ask once before but didn't get an answer, so sorry for the repeat. I copied the paragraph below from my ORBX YCNK user guide. "Orbx will in the future expand the coverage in the Central Coast area to encompass more photoreal scenery, with planned products such as RAAF Williamtown Airport, and CitiScape Newcastle." Just wondering if this is still on the cards, or not. Thankyou too for the sale that's on at the moment. pngflyer
  13. Hi guys, I have a question for you developers if I may. I noticed that in an earlier version of my YCNK scenery user guide pdf that you said you had plans for doing a Newcastle airport/RAAF Williamtown, and also for a Newcastle citiscape. Is this still on the cards? Sure would be fantastic if it was. An amazing stretch of coastline, varied and interesting terrain, a shipwreck, a huge variety of flying (mil and civvy), interesting vfr reporting points, options for very scenic and interesting vfr flights from the North (Brisbane, Coffs Harbour, Port Macqarie) and from the South (Sydney, Central Coast, Warnervale, Aeropelican). The quality of the imagery for the area on Google is amazing too... Just thought I'd ask, and thanks for your time. pngflyer
  14. Hi Richard, I only flightsim on laptops as I live in a remote area and rely completely on solar. I would recommend you check out a Perth company called Metabox. They have been doing really well in reviews and their laptops punch well above their weight. The last review I have was for the Metabox Prime PE650RE (GTX970M). It had the second highest fps on 3 different games, tested with 7 equivalent laptops. I also notice that the higher end Gigabyte laptops consistently do well in comparison with other laptops. The last review I have was for the Gigabyte P57Wv5 (also a GTX970M). Personally, I have a Venom 15S which I have been very happy with. It is by no means a high end machine, but I have no trouble at all running FSX with the ORBX recommended settings, and some REX weather. Hope this helps...
