  1. Thanks Wakashi, found the "other settings". Looking at My Profile, Overview, I notice that all of the info seems correct but the Password looks a bit strange. It had one less * symbol than the number of characters in my password. So, I tried to change my password (twice) but ended up with a "Account Locked, wait another 15 mins" message each time. In the end, I tried the lost password process and got my password reset. So far it seems like it may have worked, fingers crossed.
  2. I'm in the same boat, every time I leave and return, I have to sign in again. Unusually I have to sign in to two separate pages each time. I just assumed it was normal for everyone but probably not then? I've looked everywhere in my Profile, but can't see anywhere to change my Forum settings except for just a couple of Email, password settings. I did have to have the Admins activate my Account (didn't get the activation Email) don't know if that is related. It's not a biggie, just a wee inconvenience, but it has had me puzzled. Warren
  3. I live at Hervey Bay, and have flown in and out of the airport many times. The Orbx version of YHBA is brilliant, not only the airport accuracy, but the whole surrounding area of The Bay is impressively improved. Warren
  4. The 100 MB file was downloading at 280 kb/sec. Good ol' Aussie internet hey.
  5. Mine is Hervey Bay, but that is mainly because I live there too. If I want to fly large jetliners, I start mostly from Brisbane.
  6. Absolutely brilliant job with this scenery. New Zealand has some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, and ORBX have captured it very well. Thanks guys, top job. Now I can even simulate my own Warbirds Over Wanaka.
  7. Oh dear, this will be even more grounds for divorce to my wife. My favourite flight on FSX is YBBN to YBCS and back, so how can I resist. This will cost me extra for the flowers and chocolates, in addition to the Scenery. I've also been dropping hints galore for YMML for Christmas. Warren
  8. Great shots Frank. I picked up YHBA yesterday ('bout time hey, since I live at Hervey Bay), and went for a similar flight in the default Cessna. Orbx did a fantastic job on the scenery, but now I am keen on finding that Bonanza, I had one for FS2004 which I loved. I'll add it to my list behind some more regional sceneries by Orbx. Just don't tell my wife that the moths are escaping from the wallet again.
  9. Please keep us informed how this goes, I am seriously considering getting this one to make my FS2004 look better. I'm now spoiled by the look of FSX but I'm finding my PC struggles with some of my payware addon heavy aircraft, so I need to keep FS2004 running for them. I was just about to get REX but will wait for a bit to see your final reports. Warren
  10. Absolutely brilliant, can't wait for this one. Something really special for us Queenslanders.
  11. Great news John, I haven't pre-paid due to heading out west this week for a few weeks (will visit the Longreach Qantas Museum again of course), but I'll be adding YBBN as soon as I return. I'm very excited about this one.
  12. Quick update, I now have my FTX Australia installed and you were all spot on. All I can say is WOW!!!, even better than I anticipated. I'm so glad I made the jump to FSX now, and with the hints and tips found here, my FPS is improving already. My biggest problem now is "where to stop", I keep looking at all the extra addons available from ORBX, including my hometown of YHBA, and now YBBN becoming available very soon. I can see lots of negotiating skills needed for my "holder of the purse strings", where do I buy the flowers and chocolates to soften her up? Exciting times ahead. Warren
  13. Reading this brings back great memories for me. I went to Warbirds last time (2 yrs ago) and had a ball, it is by far the best Airshow I have ever attended. The Wanaka location is just magic for this type of show, and the range of aircraft on display and in the air is incredible. I wish I was there again this weekend, but hopefully next time around. Warren
  14. G'Day fellow enthusiasts. I was previously an avid Flightsim user in FS2004, and regularly used the wonderful VOZ scenery for many years. I then drifted away for a while into the world of SimRacing, but I always knew I would return to Flightsimming again. After resisting the "upgrade" to FSX, I have finally added it to my collection (now that I have a better spec PC to run it) and the very first addon software is ORBX FTX Scenery for Australia. I actually don't have it yet but it should arrive this week. Next on the list will be my hometown of YHBA (Hervey Bay). Anyway, I just wanted to say g'day and I look forward to getting to know many of you much better over time. Cheers, Warren
