  1. Just added my son’s old PC to my sim and really like the outcome. My original PC is driving the ultra wide 48” front screen and the second PC is working two 43” TVs on the sides. The second PC is not really up to the task so I’m thinking about getting another PC for the side TVs. I’d like to keep my son’s PC and plan to use this as the X-Plane master. I’ll dial all graphic settings to minimum and just run the instrument panels and flight controls through it without any flying screen attached to it. The two faster computers will be dedicated as external views only without any overhead for calculating flight dynamics, weather (Active Sky), or USB inputs. Here’s my question: I know that I’d need to purchase another license for my Orbx scenaries for the side views but will I also need a third license for the master PC? This PC will not display anything but I’m concerned about the changes in elevation and possible differences in taxi- and runways.
  2. Well, they didn’t say which year. But in all seriousness, is it really that important to you? My little kids can cope better when waiting for Santa than some of the “grown-ups” here.
  3. Another method is to keep two versions of your scenery.ini, one with and one without X-Europe and rename the files prior to starting X-Plane. Also, take a look at Xorganizer, which let’s you enable and disable scenaries with a few mouse clicks.
  4. Here’s a link to a Bing map of all Orbx airports for X-Plane. https://binged.it/2MKAM7V
  5. Just tried again with X-Plane and see the same quirk in the terrain. Must have missed it the first time.
  6. Flew across Loch Lochy (also low and slow) a few days ago and don’t remember seeing it.
  7. X-Plane 11 pops a dialog window when loading KTIW scenery. Upon inspecting my log file, I find the following: -------------------------- snip ----------------------------------- 0:00:44.208 E/SCN: Failed to find resource 'PF2/Gen_Chd_Male_001B.obj', referenced from scenery package 'Custom Scenery/Orbx_A_KTIW_TacomaNarrows/'. 0:00:44.208 E/SCN: Custom Scenery/Orbx_A_KTIW_TacomaNarrows/Earth nav data/+40-130/+47-123.dsf: 0:00:44.208 E/SCN: Unable to locate object: PF2/Gen_Chd_Male_001B.obj 0:00:44.208 E/SYS: +------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 0:00:44.208 E/SYS: | There was a problem loading the scenery package: 0:00:44.208 E/SYS: | Custom Scenery/Orbx_A_KTIW_TacomaNarrows/ 0:00:44.208 E/SYS: | The scenery may not look correct. 0:00:44.208 E/SYS: | Please see the Log.txt file for detailed error information. 0:00:44.208 E/SYS: | (io_dsf.cpp:806) 0:00:44.208 E/SYS: +------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 0:00:44.208 E/SCN: Failed to find resource 'PF2/Sum_Adt_Female_016B.obj', referenced from scenery package 'Custom Scenery/Orbx_A_KTIW_TacomaNarrows/'. -------------------------- snip ----------------------------------- Orbx library is loaded. Airport and surroundings look and fly alright.
  8. Folks, I’m confused about the identifier for Clench Common. Orbx Central and X-Plane 11 show this as EG20, but Foreflight has EG20 tagged as Langar in Nottinghamshire. In Foreflight, Clench Common has identifier EGD9. I don’t have official charts of Great Britain, can somebody shed some light on this?
