  1. No the default LOWI is still there. A suggestion is to uninstall the default LOWI via the content manager or edit the Content.XML so that the entry is false, saves two LOWIs being loaded and causing conflicts. <Package name="asobo-airport-lwoi-innsbruck" active="false"/> I have the EGGP I bought through Orbx Central and after SU5 there was a UK World Update which re-installed the Asobo EGGP, after the update I went in to the content manager and manually deleted EGGP. So for you I'd suggest the following: 1) unlink the Orbx LOWI 2) update MSFS to SU5 3) got to content manager and uninstall LOWI or edit the content.xml 4) link Orbx LOWI good luck Rob
  2. I just tried a quick flight from EGLC to EGLL. The skies are a lot quieter at this time and I did not have the lengthy pauses which I experienced last night. There were one or two but for a second rather than that several in a row lasting 30 seconds as last nights experience. Again this makes me think the major pauses are due to the influx of new players
  3. I did a couple of flights out of EGLC last night and all but one was successful. As well as Orbx's EGLC I'm running with Photogrammetry on and the London City Pack. I was initially in the FI spitfire and tried to fly through Tower Bridge as I'd seen on a video early, that did not work out well. So on reload I tried the Orbx Optica from EGLC and got my first CTD in ages. Tested the Optica elsewhere and it was fine. Came back to EGLC later with the Optica and again it was fine. So no idea what caused the CTD. What I am experiencing is severe Stutters, which once started continue for 30 seconds and it's unplayable until they stop. However I also saw this at NYC so it's not an Orbx issue. I'm assuming that the stutters are caused by the influx of new players putting extra load on the servers causing lag as you download the scenery files. Certainly there are noticeably more players on. Last night I counted 18 flying round Anglesey when normally there are one or two. And turning off all other players (how I normally fly) did not stop the stutters. Changing the weather conditions also introduces stutters whilst it loads up the new lighting and cloud. If I'm right this will hopefully improve as MS sort the server situation out of the new player influx calms down.
  4. As far as I am aware the Asobo created aircraft that come with the sim do not have manuals. Any payware aircraft purchased from either Orbx Central or the in game Marketplace do have manuals. Purchased through the Marketplace the aircraft are installed to the Official folder whereas Orbx Central and other sources go in to your Community folder. The Orbx Optica for example is in my Community folder .... \Community\Orbx-aircraft-optica\Resources\Documentation Indiafoxtech's T-45 is slightly different and other planes may choose a different location .... \Community\indiafoxtecho-t45c\SimObjects\Airplanes\IndiaFoxtEcho_T45C\docs I purchased the Mooney through the marketplace and this is as follows ..... \Official\Steam\carenado-aircraft-m20r-ovation\SimObjects\Airplanes\Carenado_M20R_Ovation\Documentation
  5. I think that will all depend upon where you installed the files to when you used Orbx Central. This is an assumption as I've installed all my Orbx addons into MSFS. I only use Addon Linker for freeware. If you set the install location away from MSFS and were using addon linker for the Orbx scenery, removing the symbolic link to MSFS should not cause an issue with Orbx Central because the files are still in the location that you installed them to when using Orbx Central.
  6. During the Steam installation it may have asked you where you wanted to install MSFS2020, it certainly did for me and my version in not in the normal steam location. If you did not change the default install path then find which drive steam is on then look for the following path, you should have something similar: D:\Steam\steamapps\common\MSFS2020\Community if purchased from outside the in game marketplace it will have installed to your Community folder If purchased from the in game marketplace then: D:\Steam\steamapps\common\MSFS2020\Official\Steam But easier to, when in game go to Content Manager, find the scenery, click on it and then delete.
  7. Oh, and I went to check out the location of your screenshot and the photogrammetry is really poor.
  8. I thought Asobo had stated in a live stream that there were issues with the Photogrammetry released in the UK update and were working on fixing it? Certainly there is a "fix photogrammetry" item on the feedback snapshot. #05 I would assume that until Orbx knows what the Asobo "fix" looks like they cannot address the issue because there may not be an issue post fix.
  9. Yes it is available and even with the apocalypse style photogrammetry, London is looking really good now
  10. The only CTD's I've had seem to be related to 3rd Party addons (Not Orbx or their partners I should note) and whenever the Sim has failed to load, that is stuck at the loading screen, removing items from the Community folder has resolved that. Using the addon linker I did place the scenery and airport from one modder in specific files as per the structure and layout I prefer. Every time I tried to load the sim after that it stuck at loading. It was only when I reverted to a layout which kept the files in the same structure that the issue was resolved. And a similar issue happened with a mod I forgot to remove when Asobo added the same airport but as a handcrafted version. Again you can easily uncheck the mod in the addon linker which removes the links in your community folder and just restart the sim. The mega livery pack is massive and covers regional airlines I'll probably not want, so again I have a liveries folder, by aircraft type in addon linker and just load the ones I think I want to see in that session.
  11. That is a very good point about using the Addon Linker to only load those addons, scenery, airports that you want to use in that session. With a regional scenery layout you can just load up Europe or the USA for example, in the addon linker, instead of everything in your community folder which saves loading times.
  12. I'll try and answer some of these, this obviously is my understanding and how it seems to work for me. Other people might have a different view. If the internet is down - Yes you can still use it but as far as I am aware, you loose access to the photogrammetry and the Azure AI which gives you the autogen building types. I've seen this when after a patch I found myself with the data offline and it did not look great. I'm not even sure if you get the Orthos, to be honest I cannot remember. There is a free mod called Addon Linker which I recommend. You can install all your addons and custom scenery in a folder away from your community folder and the linker just creates links to your files. This for me is great because a lot of the freeware is poorly named and you often wonder what the hell it is, this mod allows you to sort your addons and rename them. So I have a folder called Scenery and in that is regional and country scenery. I have a folder for airports and that is also broken down the same way. So how does that help with updating the sim? Well you launch the mod and remove the links with one click and that stops them being loaded. I do find that Sim updates can break the addons which can then lead to CTD so if you are unsure which addon it is you can easily remove them all to you find the culprit. I have X-plane and MSFS on Steam and the stats there show twice as many MSFS users per week than X-plane, ok X-plane (and MSFS) is undoubtable bigger outside Steam but I'd image there is a lot of MSFS active users and that will grow with the launch of the XBOX version later this year. Asobo have said multiple times that they see this as a 10 year project and Microsoft recently came out and said, how like HALO, MSFS is important to them Finally if you buy an Orbx addon you don't have to do anything with the default scenery. However if the default airport is a handcrafted one then some people recommend that you uninstall the handcrafted airport in your content manager OR you can edit your Content.XML file and change the active="true" to Active="false". I've not tried the second option, I have DD's EGGP (via Orbx) and I uninstalled the new Asobo EGGP via the Content Manager and that worked for me.
  13. Hi Adam, So if you remove Orbx's EGLC do you get pink textures on the default version? If not could someone at Orbx look at Adam's screenshot and identify what is the texture name which is being used where the pink areas appear? Either Orbx are using their own texture there and that is maybe corrupted, or they are calling a default texture but either way I would have thought that they could confirm which texture it is. As an FYI I was following a thread on the official forum which I believe you posted to as I'm seeing pink textures on a freeware airport, but only at a distance. I found two folders where the textures were and renamed those folders. Starting the sim I noticed a hell of a lot more pink textures because for some reason the Sim did not download the missing textures and I could not find the option to force it.
