  1. Hi, I am using P3Dv4.5 and have a problem with the elevation of the jetties at KSEA which appear +/- 40 ft in the air. I also use GSX which may be relevant? I remember an elevation correction tool in Orbx FTX but I now use Orbx Central and can't find the tool (if it is the right way to correct this error?). If anyone has the solution I would be grateful.
  2. I believe the LIRF default scenery has the wrong frequency for runway 16R - the real world freq is 109.75 (IFRR) which didn't work the last time I flew in. Are the other ILS frequencies at LIRF correct, or have they been updated/changed in real life. If so, what frequencies does Orbx have? Many thanks
  3. It's funny - I was just thinking "I wonder if he sent me the original file by mistake"? It's the sort of thing I do all the time! Nevertheless, both new files received and loaded - bingo! No more Orbx staff member. Just in time, too. I have a lesson starting at 16.00z! Again, many, many thanks. John
  4. Oh Dear! Just tried the new file and the figures are still there. I re-downloaded, re-inserted the new file, but same result. Sorry to be a nuisance
  5. Thanks Nick - you're a star. May I distribute it amongst our BAVirtual students and instructors? Hoping all is well with you and yours, John
  6. We have just moved our training base to Oxford Kidlington airport (EGTK). On entering the main apron from the south there is a group of three people, two male, one female, standing on the taxiway about 7 ft on the east side of the centre-line. Why? By making EGTK files active/non-active I have managed to narrow the file in which these folk reside as FTX_ENG_EGTK_objects.bgl which you will know resides in FTX_EU_ENG_05_SCENERY. Is there any way I can edit this file to remove these figures? If not, could they be edited out in a future update. Sounds like a small thing, b
  7. Hi Nick, Problem solved completely! The answer was the order of the various files/scenery areas within the FSX Scenery Folder. Using a reference description I re-ordered the scenery area folders into the "correct" order of priority and ALL the errors I had been experiencing disappeared. What is relevant is that I had done, as far as I could tell (uninstalling all Orbx files using 'Uninstall', deleting any remaining files/folders referring to Orbx, and using a 'proprietary' computer ccleaner to tidy up the registry) a completely clean installation of my Orbx
  8. Hi Nick, Thanks for that. I had actually done as you suggest using the Scenery Configurator program, nevertheless did check using Orbx Central. The problem is how do I "know" that Orbx Trees HD has actually loaded correctly. Orbx Central confirms that it has installed, I have verified the files, but it all still looks a bit sparse. Maybe its different in FSX cf. Prepar3D which I normally use? I cannot add Orbx Trees HD via myScenery Configurator program as it is not a scenery area. I presume it sits inside one of the other scenery files as n internal modif
  9. Have now used Scenery Configurator program and manually added missing ORBX files to Scenery Library. It works after a fashion. At least EGTB has its improved scenery. Orbx Trees doesn't seem to be functioning, though. Rollon my new computer!
  10. My old flight computer has had P3D removed and de-activated, so while I await my new flight computer I tried going back to FSX. My Virtual Airline uses EGTB High Wycombe (Booker) airfield as its Intial Fying Course base, and has a modified ADE_FTX_ENG_EGTB.bgl file designed to replace the equivalent ADE_FTX_ENG_EGTB.bgl ORBX file at location ORBX>FTX_EU>FTX_EU_ENG_05_SCENERY>scenery. This replacement file adds the updated (more realistic) buildings, fuel pump facility, grass runway, grass taxiway, taxiway designation boards and stop bars. At least it did. Since
  11. As I don't have any other scenery files for Malaga I guess that means the default scenery package in Prepar3D must be where the anomaly lies? Cheers, John
  12. Orbx Europe shows only one of the two runways at Malaga. Runway depicted is the 'westerly' runway of the two: rwy 31 on the western side of the terminal buildings, but the runway is named as the 'easterly' runway of the two: rwy 32, which should be on the easterly side of the terminal buildings.
  13. Had done all of that - however having left the room (!) for 35 minutes, the connection 'unhung' and downloaded. Seems the downloads are VERY slow at the moment. Hopefully all will now work as before.
  14. I have FSX, FSX-Steam and P3Dv4.3 installed on my computer. Previously have had BASE Pack, openLC Europe, Trees HD and VECTOR installed separately on FSX and on P3Dv4 and working beautifully when using any of the flight sim programs. I then noticed that anomalies were occurring in FSX regarding scenery foliage. I compared the Scenery folders within both FSX and P3Dv4.3 and saw that VECTOR was missing from the FSX Scenery folder. I accessed FTX Central (v3.2.5.9) and tried to uninstall/re-install VECTOR. I selected C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Games/?Microsoft Flight Simulator X/ORBX
  15. Hi John - I shall do as you say. I shall source Google Earth if that source is usable (copyright issues, possibly)?
  16. First, a huge thank-you to the people at Orbx for the work they have done producing fantastic scenery for the flight simulation community. The quality and reproduction of the real-world is second to none. It is so good that it makes true VFR flying not only possible, but a real joy. I am part of a team that teach online VFR flying around England using Orbx England (as well as the base Orbx scenery products) through BAV Virtual. However (you knew there would be a "however"), there is one glaring omission - that of horse racecourses. I am only aware of Orbx England, but I
  17. Thanks Dusterman, I shall try calibarting the monotor and see what I can get
  18. I am currently flying an old Avro York online from London, England, to Johannesburg, South Africa - a trip I did in 1948 as a very young passenger. I am currently stuck on the ground i Cairo as my computer guru tries to find me a new graphics card, as mine has gone belly up. (darn you, you cryptocurrency miners, you!). It enables me to enquire whether it is possible to reset the night sky to a darker hue? At the same time I would like to brighten (and possibly enlarge - but only slightly!) the stars and planets in the night sky. As someone who used to fly regularly over the "dark c
  19. We use Liverpool as a training airfield for both IFR and VFR flying. One of the Visual Reporting Points used is the famous horse race course Aintree, where the British Grand National horse race takes place. Any chance it could be added to the England scenery pack? At present it shows as a housing and light industry area. If not possible, is there anyone out there who could point us to a scenery mod which would work? Thanks in advance for all constructive replies
