  1. Hello, and isn´t there anything I can go to encourage ORBX to fix it? They have the good DDBB and the right information (Vector), so it shouldn't be really so hard to fix, isn´t it? Regards, Carles
  2. Hi again Nick, 8 months after the last message, do you know if ORBX has ready some update of IRELAND to fix that problem? I haven´t seen any update yet. Just as remain: the problem we discovered was the fact that the IRELAND scenario has a worse definition of all what Vector does correctly (coastline, rivers, little islands, tunnels...) and it was not possible to have both at once: or the correct coast, roads and rivers definition from Vector, or the correct Lnadclass from IRELAND. Regards, Carles Algue
  3. Hi Nick, Good to have an answer and at less to confirm that it isn't about my installation. Moreover, sad to know that it's as it is. Specially because I bought several generic ORBX addons (included Vector) after having already installed Ireland, expecting that it would improve it and fix this type of details. In fact, in "compatibility", I think it would be fair to advise that even though it's not exactly incompatible with a region, it would be in fact inactive if an ORBX Region is installed. Apart for the details I have shown you, now and then there are many more, including coast line shape, railways, power lines, tunnels... By the way and as last attemp: would it work set Vector above Ireland in the scenary list? any positive effect? I will be waiting for this improvement then. If they have to update it, it would be a great thing also to update IFR info (frequencies, nav aids, final headings...), integrated on the Ireland pack and very out of date. Thanks for your assistance and the quick response, specially on those dates. Have a happy new year and a great 2018. Carles
  4. Hello Nick, Please, find attached a pdf of 4 pages. On each one, up is how it looks with IRL active, and below, the same landscape, with IRL off (keeping LC Europe and Vector on). Of course, with IRL on, the surface detail is much nicer, and it matches so much with how it is like. But about all what Vector should be in charge, it's worse. - In the first page, you will see Cork harbor as seen from the West side. The coastline is quite different (more real on second picture without IRL) but overall, you will see the two islands in the center of the harbor. On page 2 the same from a little closer, where the coast detail differences and the islands are more evident. - On next page, what are two different islands (Fota Island and Great Island), with IRL on appears as the same land, while on the second picture (IRL off) the channel of water between both is showed (that's the correct). - On the last one, what is called Jack Lynch Tunnel, with IRL on appears as a road crossing the sea, while with IRL off, it appears as a tunnel, and the coastline and inland patches of water are much more precise. Then Nick, are you telling that "that's normal"? Do I have to choose from a precise mesh or precise features? Then, is Vector useless when an FTX region is installed? Shouldn't the region include at less the same level of precision than the one of Vector (that is global)? Thanks for your assistance and by the way: Merry Christmas!

  5. Hi all. I have installed Base, Vector, Europe LC, trees and EU IRELAND. After attempts, changes... now my Irish scenery looks really great. Moreover, I detected from first test some much obvious errors on coastline, missed islands, tunnels... that I expected Vector would not do. Yesterday I was doing some tests, and I realised that all those defects dissappear if EU Ireland scenario is disconnected! So, it looks like Vector is doing its job but Eu Ireland (what improves all the rest) is ruining it. How can I fix it, taking profit of both addons?

  6. Hi Smudger, I think I finally fixed my problem. I have done several things, but probably the more relevant one was related with some free sceneries I installed previously to ORBX ones, that where int addon, with higher priority (all removed now). I also increased the xxxx. At last, I think that all the pictures displayed by ORBX about the Ireland scenery, are done in "summer" time, which has a much more bright green and -I think- looks more realistic than other seasons. Just a little detail about the scenery. I use fly in Munster (south of Ireland). In general, thanks to EU IRL ORBX scenery, or Vector or both, really the roads, lakes, coastline... have improved so much. There are moreover several relevant details than are just not "details" that surprise me soo much. - In Cork's harbour there are two islands: Halbowline and Spike Island. The fist is the main Ireland Navy base. On the second, there's a fortification than use be a jail. No one of the islands is displayed. - It's supposed that the Vector should include the detail of railways, but really I can't see and identify railways clearly as they should be. - It's also announced that Vector detail all the bridges and tunnels. I only know two underwater tunnels in South of Ireland, one in Cork and other in Limerick. In both cases, instead of a tunnel, the road crosses the water in surface. Maybe those questions should be addressed to the IRL or Vector development team for them to improve it on next revision, and not here (I'm not an expert on those forums, sorry). In general I have to say that I'm so happy with ORBX products. Great improvement over my previous landscape! Regards, Carles
  7. Hi, I'm interested on the ifr nav-aids update. I installed this update http://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids3.html and all the freqs were correct, but after installing several Orbx products, the Orbx scenarios with the default nav aids info (the wrong one) have priority. How could I fix it? Even one by one if necessary. Aero sors includes a tool to identify the conflicts with nav aids.

  8. (It Comes from a first forum post I initially did the 14th November 2017, first answered by John Dow. I'm reposting it here and completing it as I understand this is the correct place). Dear Orbx Sir/Mme., sorry for a help request for some -I can imagine- so basic questions. I'm a real rookie in Flight Simulation. I'm just trying to configure a good software base to train in FSX SE with a little more realistic scenery. After asking some friends, I have chosen ORBX as the community consider your brand as a warranty of quality, and some videos and screenshots comparing with other products, seem to say the same. Moreover, I'm failing in achieving the expected result. I installed 3 months ago FSX Steam over Windows 10. With FSX Steam I bought and installed also REX 4 Texture. I use FSX to train in flights (currently) over Ireland. I'm in fact flight instructor flying in South of Ireland diary. Original FSXscenario is so bad, that it was totally impossible to me neither recognize the main landmarks or coastline accidents. I installed some freeware Ireland scenery (ireland+some Irish airports) with some improvement, but still far from what I was looking for. So, I decided to buy ORBX EU_Ireland, after seeing how it was supposed to look like. Moreover, after having installed it and configured FSX as recommended in your instructions, the results are far distant from what expected (poorer) in terms of realism, detail or precision. I thought it could be due other software was required to achieve the level and look you show in your website, so finally (and the day I decided that I discovered so happily you 45% off offer) I bought and installed also 4 FTX Global products: FTX Global BASE Pack, VECTOR, openLC Europe and Trees HD (Plus Libraries). I Installed also some ORBX freeware as Euro Airports Pack or Islandia. Initially, I lead FTX Central doing its job, but there were some clear problems, as airports and other landmarks (lighthouses) were duplicated (and "floating" on the air) or with not the best detail possible (ORBX Euro Airports are not always on the same place exactly that the ORBX Ireland ones and the details are a little worse). So, I have changed some scenery up and down, doing my best, and it has improved. After that, I think it really has improved, but it is still below the expected. About "what was expected" and how it looks like: please, find the attached pdf file. First page, the expected: just what ORBX is showing on its web page. I have seen also some video in Youtube with Orbx Ireland of several users, and really it looks like ORBX pictures (so, I don't put the blame at all in ORBX, but on my configuration, I suppose). Next three pages, what I'm looking at. On ORBX pictures, the landscape, the terrain... is much more realistic. The textures, the shadows... all together is a really compact single sight of a landscape. On my simulation moreover, it's a mix of flat photos of fields, nonsense streets, vegetation... over which there are grey lines (the roads), and flat vertical objects that suddenly appear as you approach, as trees, random houses, industry chimneys... Also, I expected some details to be fixed with vector, as what should be a tunnel and appears as a bridge (as a road crossing the sea in fact) I show you in a picture. I read that Vector fixed all that, so I expected clearly those details to be fixed. Can it be related to the order an priority of the scenery in FSX? (Which is the correct one? I have seen many comments in forums about in opposite directions), My video card power? FSX Layout?

  9. Hi John Dow, thanks for your help, and sorry for my late response. On the time being I have tried to improve it reading scenery orders in forums and -by the way- buying the "Full pack" of ORBX: Base Pack+Vector+Europe LC+Trees (+Ireland, of course). I also downloaded the ORBX libraries and European Airports freeware. Initially, I lead FTX Central doing its job, but there were some clear problems, as airports and other landmarks (lighthouse) duplicated (and "floating" on the air) or with not the best detail possible (ORBX Euro Airports are not always on the same place exactly that the ORBX Ireland ones and the details are a little worse).

  10. Dear Orbx Sir/Mme., sorry for a help request for some -I can imagine- so basic questions. I'm a real rookie in Flight Simulation.

After asking some friends, I have chosen ORBX as the community consider your brand as a warranty of quality, and some videos and screenshots comparing with other products, seem to say the same. Moreover, I'm failing in achieving the expected result. I have installed (no more than 2 months ago) FSX Steam over Windows 10. With FSX Steam I bought and installed also REX 4 Texture.

So, I decided to buy ORBX EU_Ireland, after seeing how it was supposed to look like. Moreover, after having installed it and configured FSX as recommended in your instructions, the results are far distant from what expected (poorer) in terms of realism, detail or precision. - My questions are if to achieve the results that you are showing I need to install other ORBX payware products as FTX Global Base Pack, Vector or Open LC Europe, or if the product Irelan_EU should be self-sufficient to achieve the expected quality. - If so, which of those products are required to be installed simultaneously? - I installed FTX Central. I have installed in FSX the addon FTX EU_Ireland as well as some of your freeware to test and compare and enjoy in other environments. That's how my top of scenery list looks like: Is that correct? Should I change the rank? Before last ORBX installations, on top there use be just something lije "Addons scenery" before the default ones. That has just disappeared. Is that correct? If finally I install Global Base Pack, Vector and/or Open LC Europe, which is the correct order for optimum results? Thanks for your assistance Carles Algué
