  1. The tool knows where they are. There is no need for the user to take any action, other than to enable/disable the adjustment when necessary.
  2. Just a thought: Wouldn't Nick's advice here be more appropriate in the Tips and Tricks forum, since it applies to P3D, not just FSX?
  3. @Nick Cooper Where might I find your excellent post about installing/reinstalling P3D and Orbx products? I can't seem to find it for some reason. I found I had to do a complete reinstall of P3D4.4 and want to make sure the requisite Orbx products (Global Base and HD Trees, for example) are accounted for. Thank you, sir.
  4. See how this one works--it's from my Google Earth and one I use all the time. It's up to date April 2019. Cheers! FTX Global Freeware Airports North and South America April 2019.kmz
  5. Why not ask over at the LM forums? You'll get a quicker answer over there.
  6. In other words, if the member doesn't have a signature, there's nothing to see!
  7. I'm always willing to learn something new about the computer's operating system and its relationship to the newest flight simulator. What specifically does Win 10 contribute to a more efficient running P3D, XP11, etc.? Thus far, Win7 has done very well in supporting my P3Dv4.4 installation, though I have no intention of installing any TE scenery, for reasons I have stated elsewhere and for which there is no need to restate them now. Certainly I will eventually make the upgrade to Win10, but not necessarily because P3D will run more efficiently with the new OS installed. Thank you for your insights. Stew
  8. I don't think you need that SDK entry. I believe it's for developers only--you have probably dl'd it by mistake. You only need the four entries above it.
  9. That is correct, Nick. Win7 Home Premium indeed does not recognize more than 16GB.
  10. Thanks for the clarification, Nick. One learns something every day. Disabling the page file is a no-no, at least as far as I've read about it. And now here's one reason why not to fiddle with it.
  11. OOMs have nothing to do with how much RAM one has installed. It's the sim's fault (FSX or P3D3.x) that you are getting OOMs.
  12. ESSA is not situated in a full fat region like Bozeman is. If you already have OpenLC NA, you can probably get away with getting Bozeman and not notice any glaring problems. Mostly it would be color-matching or terrain-matching details, but I'm not sure how serious.
  13. Welcome back, my friend. You were truly missed! Glad you are the mend. Of course, you have some catching up to do--lots of new stuff out there! Stew
  14. The top two on my list are (1) any virus checker, and (2) any malware protector/checker. Unless you're surfing the web while you're simming, I see no point in running those things in the background, and I don't. I'm sure there are others...
