  1. I just bought and installed Alderney into my system...what a beautiful add-on this is! The scenery, town buildings and layout, airport features, even horses corralled near the airport! Breathtaking and the performance on my old system is spectacular.
  2. Thanks Holger. I am using V3 and that is for sure the problem. Don
  3. Please can anyone tell me what is this marshy looking ground texture on the shoreline behind the aircraft? This is at Moraine Lake N 51 19.34' W116 11.05' It appears at several lakes in Banff National Park within the NA Northern Rockies package. Having been to some of these locations I do not recall seeing this in real life. I have Global Base, Global Vector and Open LC North America. Another view showing how odd it looks Respectfully Don Whyte
  4. Aah I see... that answers a lot of questions Nick. I will look at the Central Rocky Mountains package. It looks like a lot of corrective work went into it. Thanks for your efforts to bring that information to me! Too bad I missed the Christmas sales... Don
  5. Strange though how Lower Loon Creek airport shows at the proper elevation until I activate Orbx Vector
  6. Thanks Nick, yes I am sure that is the case. But how to fix it? Can the scenery files be corrected by the user? Don Whyte
  7. Been doing some P3D v3.4 flying in the rugged Idaho bush country. I noted some anomalies in a few of the airstrips. This came about when trying to replicate an FSX canned flight, "Introduction to Mountain Flying". This was a challenging flight from Bernard airstrip to Lower Loon Creek airstrip. I have Global Base, Global Vector and Open LC North America. 1. Lower Loon Creek C53, ID67. Lat N44 48.6' Lon W114 48.6' In P3D with Orbx products the airstrip is shown in a hole at altitude 4040', making for a difficult to impossible approach. Without Orbx active it appears correctly.at altitude 4200 ft. Or in fact there's a slight discrepancy between river and airstrip altitudes, with AirNav remarking that "ARPT LCTD ON A PLATEAU 50-75 FT ABOVE THE RIVER", a fact confirmed by watching Youtube videos of the approach. Google Lower Loon Creek to watch. However this is what I see in P3D/Orbx 2. The Bernard U54 airstrip at Lat N44 58.7' Lon W114 44.1' has a parking pad in the river. 3. On the way to Lower Loon from Bernard airstrip we see the Flying B Ranch 121D airstrip at N44 57.9' Lon W114 43.9' . The airstrip is shown in the river. Respectfully Don Whyte
  8. Many thanks Nick and Stewart I will for sure give those a try.
  9. Is there anything that can be done about this elevation error at Lukla airport (VNLK) in Nepal? With Global Base and Global Vector active. Lukla is near Mt. Everest. At Lat N27 deg 39.81' Lon E86 deg 43.18' mag 84 deg
  10. Worthy pictures, very enigmatic! I`m always interested in a nice Dak, who's yours by? Don
  11. Er pardon me, you're in the air over England...
  12. Beauty! Wow nice DH Dragon Rapide! I didn't know they made it to OZ. Was ferried or shipped? How is flying with them?
  13. Just for interest I thought I'd post views of Yellowknife (CYZF) in Canada's North West Territories comparing Google Earth and a top-down view from Prepar3d with Global Base, Global Vector and OpenLC North America active. It's a tough area to render as the city sits on outcroppings of Canadian Shield rock and lots of small lakes within the city. If I recall correctly in FS9, FSX and I believe P3D also the airport was placed in a bowl that had to be flattened with adjusted scenery elevations. Buffalo Airways Virtual once offered such a correction for download to registered users. The similarities are remarkable. Way to go Orbx!! Google Earth: Prepar3d/Orbx:
  14. Excellent, thanks Holger and jjaycee. I think you can call my questions resolved!
