  1. oh ok thanks Doug, is there a link for it? Russ Does this mean I should ONLY use the new tool from now on? So remove FTX central? OK I found the link was on mobile before. All i want to confirm is should I remove FTXC now? Sorry I been out of the loop for 12 months! All the config such as Vector settings are now in OrbX Central yes?
  2. Hi, just purchased buildings and Alderney for FSX. After purchase in FTXC Europe shows Alderney NOT INSTALLED but when i click on it i get NO DOWNLOADS AVAILABLE FOR THIS PRODUCT. Am I missing something? I own every other FSX airport (except Samadan) and they are all installed fine. Never seen this before! Russ
  3. I take a break from simming for a few months now and then to pursue my other love, race sims. I have all the airports in Aus but for sure despite the great takeoffs and landings I've always found the region to be lackluster, especially as crossing the continent involves multi hour flights with dull scenery and zero smaller airports to tour around. So finally having a region like you do in the US and Europe where you can just drop off the map and lay low criss crossing the continent via the smaller VFR strips will being Aus alive gain for me. One question, as an F1 fan will the current Melbourn
  4. I also have a minor problem with NZGS and the runways. In FSX the default ATC considers 03/21 GRASS as the default runway and will assign it to me even though I am flying a LearJet or even PMDG 737-600(lightly loaded!). This always happens both in landing and takeoff so I have to ignore ATC and get told off every time! Thanks
  5. Living in Daytona Beach I was excited to hear about this Cityscape and still am! I own every other piece of OrbX scenery and every airport but to afford them I only buy in sales so I will have to wait a while for this one. I have no worries about loading it as I tightly integrate Scenery Config Editor with my OrbX install, before every flight just turning ON all the scenery I need. I CAN load it all at once but it takes 5 mins to load an why bloat up my sim in this way when there is no way to visit them all in one session!? Have enclosed a link to a few screen shots that should give you a
  6. Appreciate the reply, however I remember a few people complained about KBLU and the winter grass crash situation there (if I remember correctly) and that was eventually solved. If anything this thread can be helpful for those people who fly with CD ON choosing which airports to buy (or NOT to buy as there are way fewer of those affected). My strong opinion here is that if 300 airports are error free then 4 can be fixed in time.
  7. EDVR Rinteln Free flight start at Parking 1 instant crash GA aircraft (A2A Mustang) Because I belong to the considerably higher than 1% of serious simmers who fly challenging aircraft such as the A2A Mustang (note above crash and aircraft damage) and take enjoyment and challenge from taxiing, flying and landing these beasts safely in small airfields with difficult approaches, such as yours. Crashing while just loading up a parking spot is .....disappointing. Talking about 1%, I probably AM in the 1% of simmers who own every single product of yours, and ther
  8. Instead of posting multiple threads whenever an airport is unusable with CD ON I will just post results as I find them here. 2B2 Plum Island. Impossible to taxi at all or use most of parking spaces with free flight giving instant crashes. Also the crash box around the vehicles before start of rwy 28 continues some 20 feet in the air so unless you come in way high and drop it in landings via 28 or take offs via 10 are almost impossible.
  9. Hi, there seem to be a lot of areas around the airport where anyone with crash detection ON (me always) cannot maneuverer. ie: parking 6 parking 1 approaching tower on taxiway from north. In fact with CD ON only the runway itself is safe. Starting free flight from parking spots in most aircraft results in immediate crash and taxiing on any taxiway to and from parking also crashes. Note this kind of thing is very rare in your product range. Personally only noticed this with KBLU before and that ended up getting fixed (yay!). CYBD approaching run wa
  10. Just watched this again. Can't beat flying low can you!? Haven't got the Spit yet but the P-51 still serves me well. Also got all the UK airstrips in last sale. So much sim goodness so little time! Cheers! Russ
  11. Lightning at Dawn! - St Gallen Altenrhein (LSZR) To Innsbruck (LOWI) Very efficient coding all around here guys! This much detail (FSX maxed out except water) at a smooth frame rate with a complex aircraft (A2A Mustang) in BUSY weather (AS2016) running at 4k res AND capturing 4k at the same time! Fantastic! 40min flight edited to 20 mins. Low altitude visual approach with GPS guidance thru valleys, following those nice night lights.
  12. "PS took a selfie of the process -- after dropping the third screw .. " Tell me about it...I'm a retired IT guy....IMO motherboards should all have some kind of reverse polarity magnetic field switch....turn it on and every loose piece of metallic scrap that fell in the case gets airborne!
  13. JF I own all of the OrbX scenery except South America and 1 airport. If I have elevation problems with add-ons it's usually fixed by removing and re-installing the addon airport. I presume you are talking about default airports? Or the free NA airports that come with Global? Don't despair yet Vector is sublime! Following roads and rivers is VFR heaven. As you have just removed it try installing it again last in the chain. DONT run AEC until you load the airport with the issue. Then run it AFTER if there is a plateau. When it all works the hassle is worth it! There is a great too
  14. After further testing I can confirm the grass is the culprit. Or at least the option to turn it on in FTX Central with whatever also is included in the package causes the crashes. In latest FTX Central I have 3 grass settings. 1) Summer/Fall/Winter/Spring 2) Hard winter 3) No grass Settings 1 & 2 always cause instant crashes. Setting 3 always works, no crashes. No need to mess around disabling the bgls as the control panel options do it fine. As regards WHAT is causing the crashes? Seems to be some sort of blanket INVERSE crashbox around t
  15. Turning off crash detection is NOT a solution! Noticed several posts about this so I am posting this reply in all of them in the hope it will be fixed. I had to post a video to YT to complain about another devs lack of a fix for a local airfield before they agreed to fix it after ALSO saying turn CD off. I never intend to 'fly' with it off anywhere!

I have EXACTLY the same problem. Had it for months, just decided to post about it but see it already here. First noticed it during a perfect landing with A2A Mustang....as soon as touched the runway = CRASH! I thought what? No problem with airport elevation as looked great. Repeated twice from reload then decided to just load aircraft s

  20. Nope failed with IDM download. Wouldnt it be best to keep all these similar issues in one place? Here is my screenshot. I have PLENTY of disk space BTW. I think I may have found the problem. APPDATA/LOCAL/TEMP has 15GB of temp files by OrbX vector that are NOT getting removed by FTX cleanup OR windows disk cleaner. I store that directory NOT on my massive system drive but a separate partition with my Documents, as i like to keep a close eye on it and also it can never bring my system drive to a halt that way, just certain apps that dont clean up after themselves.

  21. Hi will try separate DL manager..but...I purchased around $2000k of OrbX scenery last Xmas..downloaded ALL of it it at once and never had one problem with installations. All problems have started during something that was updated in last couple of months in FTX Central. I thought I DID start a new topic I just cant find it! Is there a "topics started by me" link anywhere in my profile?" As there were a few with same issues I may have just replied on those.
  22. Followed above instructions to the letter and it still fails saying download interrupted FROM LOCAL FILE.
  23. I get same error. Cant use FSX anymore till this is fixed been broken 3 weeks.
