  1. My concept would be for me and my girl to fly to points of interest for a few days at a time and rather than take chances on the water and bedbug situation, at a minimum, just bunk down in the plane. Kinda tight quarters, but no worse than a tent when camping. Was just wondering if this was something the airport would support; just park in an out of the way area, as we would anyway, but with a power connection. This is ofc FS fantasy, lacking my very own 707
  2. Ofc you would need a power connection. But wondering if the airport would allow you to live out of your aircraft overnight or for a few days, no idea, hence my question.
  3. Like a lot of ppl I'm poring over the Orbx Direct Catalogue comparing goodies I still haven't bought. And I have found the organization of your Catalogue to be quite unhelpful, hence a few small suggestions that would help me, and I assume others, from having to flip back and forth between pages on a single item to discover, or not, desired info. 1) Include the price on the front page 2) Include in the pictures, preferable in the top three in the group: a. a picture showing the actual air strip, preferable looking down the length of the runway from the point of view of an aircraft approaching to land. Some airports show the landing strip in pieces as parts of pictures focused on other things, some are buried in the scenery and a few were so well hidden or absent I never found them. In some the text states these runways are challenging for whatever reason, but there is no image showing anything. Given that the usual nine images include some very nice shots of aircraft and rusting fuel tanks, it seems there is adequate space to highlight the actual air field that is being sold. b. a basic map so we can see roughly where it is located. Yes, I know one can dig around in the Orbx website or just the bottom of the page for a map, but this means two open pages to find what should have been included in the one. c. Information on if seasons are included. Some descriptions mention 5 seasons, others only that there are season and other says nothing at all, although in one such case there was a picture of the air field covered in snow. 3) In cases where there are more than one airfield included or where one is told that the airfield includes some larger area of coverage, show us a graphic of the area. This is done in a few cases and is very helpful and very inciting to this buyer. However, in many cases there is nothing. As above such an image would be vastly more useful than pictures of aircraft with the airfield lost in the ground clutter or pictures of rusting fuel tanks. You folks produce wonderful products and these suggestions are make solely for the purpose of improving your catalogue to be more helpful for your prospective buyers, and me in particular who finds selecting my purchases more of a project than it should be. Best wishes,
  4. OK, I'm rich and have my own private airliner which I fly. Can I chose to stay in it when traveling rather than go to a hotel? Ofc I can fit it out for that, but can airports accommodate/allow it?
  5. Finally installing via Central my Orbx Collection on my new rebuilt computer. Is it possible to run FSX on one drive and have Central install the scenery on a different drive? If so how? I have looked and missed it, but at least one fellow simmer has mentioned that is how they are doing it.
  6. Thx for the info, MMO is a Massive Multiplayer Online Game, think Warcraft as an example. The SSD gives me much faster and more fluid movement, frames per second. Had played off of a SATA II, 3GB/sec conventional HD and installing on a SATA III, 6GB/sec, SSD about doubled the fps, about the same for FSX. How did you control where Orbx Central installed the scenery? I looked but missed that.
  7. Purchased a SATA 3 SSD to devote to the OS and to FSX. Also added a MMO, where I saw a marked improvement in fps. Have now added a new conventional HD that is also SATA 3, ie 6GB/sec. Would I likely be able to keep the increased fps in the MMO if I moved it to the conventional HD so I can open up space on the SSD, where I can stuff more and more Orbx goodies.
  8. There was/is? a download for AI Traffic Pago Pago. It is not in the Oceania Freeware page. Any idea where it might be?
  9. Thx, got mine there. With Central being so hinky glad to hear it is straightforward.
  10. Thx so much for sharing so much info in a way that is usable. I was actually planning to buy Arconis today, now I'm going to try the Active Boot Disk Demo. Totally understand the money is a small price to pay for hours and days of rebuilding, I've had to do it before and am doing it now.
  11. thank you so much, was expecting to be slammed down. that is a brilliant improvement along with impressive response time, you have a good day sir
  12. I bought this a couple of years ago as being a product ORBX used as part of their basic background. How do I install it? It is not an Orbx Direct Download zip file.
  13. I've posted my support post for FTX Global Vector stalling out at 10%, but this is a request for general advice, not individual support. I have Global Base (installed), Global Vector (stalled out) but does it matter the order of installation for openLC North America, Regions and Airports? My inclination is to go in that order, but does it matter? If Global Vector is a no go today, will it mess anything up if I install the rest and come back to Global Vector later? Advice would be much appreciated.
