  2. You must have Aspen Extended Altitude / Ecosystem\Aerosoft\Aspen Extended\Aspen Extended Altitude, placed in the next slot above the Default Terrain in your scenery.cfg library.

  4. Great shots of my home town. Chris, Urangan, Hervey Bay.
  5. Yep, it is old, I got it for FSX years ago, and then a free update came out for P3Dv4, so I tried it out. I'm to, waiting for something decent for Johannesburg, don't know if I'll live long enough to see that ! My FSDG Cape Town is OK, but it could do with some modernization. Chris.
  6. Ok, lets try this one again. The previous posting got deleted because, I suppose, not enough Orbx scenery was showing. This flight is the very last QANTAS Boeing 747 flight out of Johannesburg, on Thursday, 26th, March, 2020. On Saturday, 28th March, 2020, All Qantas 747's were retired immediately.

  7. Hi Stewart, I just added a bit more to my post. I was sure I had the problem in FS2009, a crash at 16000 ft between the Sunshine Coast and Hervey Bay, so I looked it up. My memory is not as sharp as it was. Chris. Edit:- I looked it up in my FS9 notes, wasn't as easy to do in FS9 as it was in FSX. Insert one line into the config file, DisableForceCollideDetection = 1
  8. This problem dates back to the release of FSX in 2006. Errors in the coding and the completion of DirectX 10 were never fixed or completed as Microsoft shut down the FSX team and abandoned the project. Experienced Simmers have had "Crash Detection" turned off for the last 14 years to avoid the problem. Unfortunately, the Microsoft errors, short comings in their code have been carried over into P3D, and only Lockheed Martin can fix it as they now have the source code. So, turn off your crash detection and enjoy your flight. Chris. Edit:- I wa
  9. Stewart, you have that around the wrong way. Johannesburg International Airport is JNB or FAOR From Wikipedia:- O. R. Tambo International Airport (IATA: JNB, ICAO: FAOR) is a major international airport situated in Kempton Park, Gauteng, South Africa. It was originally known as Jan Smuts International Airport, after the former South African Prime Minister of the same name. The airport was renamed Johannesburg International Airport in 1994 when the newly elected African National Congress (ANC) government implemented a policy of not naming airports after politi
  10. Agreed Nick, All you have to do is to stop the sim from seeing the areas you don't want loaded. Yes, I have been at this for a long time too, even did the the Complete Hervey Bay airport here after they did the expansion to take the 737's in 2005 and that was for FS 2004 A Century of Flight. Of course I had to buy Orbx Hervey Bay the day it came out ! Chris.
  11. Nick, Unfortunately my little program is not suited to everyone's computer, in as much as the program doesn't know where all the files are located on each individual computer. But, it is really easy to make up a batch file to suit each individual computer once you know the principal of how it works. First, you have to make a bunch of folders in the root of c: drive so the batch file can locate them along with the Program Data\Lockheed Martin folder. Name the new folders with the areas in which you want to fly. Now make up a bunch of "Scenery.cfg" files, one for each area in
  12. Hi Dennis, Unfortunately you have come up against a characteristic, flaw, limitation, that is a carry-over from FSX days. P3D, like FSX, scans almost every file in the simulator during startup, the more files, the longer it takes. There is a solution, I had written a small utility program for FSX years ago and it works equally as well with P3Dv4. A few days ago there was a discussion here on this forum, https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/189262-only-wish-to-load-certain-Orbx-files-from-library-after-migration/?tab=comments#comment-1638499 , I had gone to my other comp
  13. Maryborough (YMYB) to Hervey Bay (YHBA) Off we go. Climbing out of Maryborough. Maryborough township and surrounding sugar cane farms. Over fly Hervey Bay airport, make sure no one is stuck on the RWY. Uncontrolled airport here. Turning down wind to RWY 11. I can see my house ! On short final. Almost home. Just have to find our parking place. Chris.
  14. Hey Jack, You up early or very late to bed.
  15. Hi Jack, No, nothing special, I just set the brightness and saturation in P3D and just use the "V" key to do the capture. Hope you Guys are flying these, I'm having a lot of fun making them and flying them.
