  1. Hello folks. Firstly, I am an avid Orbx Fan and have all Global regions and Oceania along with many Regions and All UK Airports, I am disappointed to hear that Orbx are dropping FTX, however, I think you do a fantastic job and I am excited at the photo scenery prospect, however after much snarling and grating of teeth and many hours spent, I would be obliged if it would be possible for some "Off the beaten track" questions could be answered please. My System Spec is in the first post here if you need to see it. Apologies if these have been asked elsewhere, appreciate then if you could point me in the right direction to see the answers. P3D has inherited the ability to display 5 Season scenery, which is a major thing with FTX, I love seeing the seasons change on the Flight Sim as the year passes by. So are seasonal changes planned to be incorporated in to the True Earth photoreal scenery? I understand it is just a matter of photoshop work to change the look of the base terrain to look like other seasons. (I did build a little scenery a farm on the A5 in Ogwen, its where I go camping ) Unfortunately, even using JV's suggested settings on a clean set of config files, FTX Central Forced Migration etc... I cannot get True Earth England to work properly, bluries, stutters, where in FTX England, I can be maxed out and its as smooth as silk. (As described here in) So in this day and age of file size not being much of an issue to some, I still wonder why the 29 or so 3DM files total 12.2Gb alone without the rest of the TE files, I am picking on these because these are specifically the files that I have identified which are causing problems for me ( Re my post here ) and this post here Worryingly the total sum of all my Orbx scenery is 194.4 Gb and the four folders alone for TE England are almost 1/3rd the size at 69.3Gb - just 1 season in 4 folders? I am not a scenery designer by any stretch of the imagination, I am not illiterate as far as computers are concerned either, is it not a fact that file load time is proportional to file size? So please reassure me that for example FTX_GBS_3DM_p52m003.BGL which weighs in at a hefty 883,947kb (863Mb) by it self, is conducive to a fast system, even with the 6% fix promised by LM in P3Dv4.5 By the way, as a matter of interest, is the Orbx 3D Models referred to on this web site anything to do with our Orbx scenery? In Fig 1 FTX England max slider settings. Buckingham Palace and the Mall are displayed, nice and crisp proper grey roads from Vector and FTX correctly portrays the coloured buildings north (ish) of Trafalgar Square. Although density is set to max there are many areas not covered by 3D models. Clearly the detail radius is smaller than in Fig 2.. Fig 2 True Earth England JV Slider Settings, is almost the same scene, but one can see The Mall is Green (supposed to be light red in real life) as is the roundabout in front of Buck House, sadly this is typical of my experience of both roads and railways across England with TE, Vector is selected and should be displayed.... Why are the roads and railways green or have a definite green hue. Having experimented, I think the 3DM files display large amounts of ordinary housing, because it was all that I could see that was missing when I disable the 3DM files. However with the 3DM files disabled the only land marks I could find missing is the VRP north West of London City, namely the 3 gasometers, without the 3DM files every building folk go to London to see is there... Is it possible to use the FTX ordinary housing to replace the 3DM ordinary housing files, to be honest, I think they are just as good if not better as the 3DM models.

  2. Hi, just trying to load TrueEarth GB South in Compton Abbas but my P3D loading times has increased significantly (stuck at the dreaded 6%) by about x10-longer when compared to FTX England. I suspected the shaders could cause the issue, so cleaned them and also the scenery library but this did not improve the loading time. Should I expect much longer loading times with TrueEarth GB than with England? Any advice, much appreciated. The Compton Abbas parking position still puts the plane in a hole in the ground, but there was a fix for FTX England which might still solve this, or will there be P3D updates coming to upgrade the airports? Thanks Brian
  3. Hello, If you take a look at the photo, you can clearly see what I'm talking about. It seems that when installing FTX England, scotland, wales, it installs it into the water as well? (Currently installed is just FTX England but it does happen on the others too). I've tried countless times reinstalling each scenery, as well as running verifying files & Force Migration but nothings helping... Any help would be appreciated! Regards, Anthony.
  4. Hello, So, originally I was having this error (See photo1 attachment) where land would cover loads of water areas all around England & Scotland & Wales, so my initial idea was to reinstall them. When I was uninstalling, I got an error popping up that told me to direct to Orbx support... This is the error (See ftxc3.log file)... Seems like something can't be administrated? Also it seems anytime I install any Orbx sceneries into P3DV4.3, it causes the "stuck on splash screen" error which means I have to go to the P3D v4 route folder, 'delete generated files' which completely resets all my scenery (meaning I have to manually add all my scenery, I have a lot of scenery...) & reset all my graphics and key commands etc... Very annoying and tedious! - It's also a fresh install of windows meaning a brand new installation of P3D, I haven't even done a flight yet because of these annoying errors caused by Orbx. Any help would be highly appreciated... Regards, Anthony ftxc3.log

  6. Hello All, I recently purchase Orbx EGHI and orbx England... EGHI works amazingly looks amazing performance is amazing everything is fine. However... Orbx England has not made an appearance. It doesn't appear in my scenery library and there is no visual difference to my surrounding terrain at all other than an unbelievable amount of blurriness. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction and offer some help as this is frankly ruined my sim... I managed to get some screenshots of the terrain... The blurries have been a lot worse in the past few hours but this gives you an idea of the issue and shows orbx England is not present. My Order Numbers are EU england 58e61b91afd63. EGHI 58e2a55dd6bb3
  7. Hi, I have had a working version of FSX steam edition with ORBX global and FTX England for many months now, but I had a disk crash which meant re-installing everything. As far as I know, I have a clean FSX (Steam) install followed by ORBX global, FTX England and nothing else. Now my scenery is littered with black boxes as far as the eye can see. Clearly something is wrong but I can't work it out. Please see attached picture:
  8. January flight at EGGW, no snow in specific areas of the airport. Also tested with heavy snow weather, no joy. This is all I could find:
  9. Hi guys, I am rather new to modding so unfortunately do not have the knowledge to fix this myself. I have recently purchased the FTX EU England scenery package. I downloaded it, ran the installer and it would only install on my additional hard drive, I could not change the file path to install on my main C drive where FSX:SE is installed. I went along with it just in case it made no difference and it came across a lot of issues when running the game, I decided to do a full uninstall of all FTX sections and removed FSX from my computer. I have since reinstalled FSX however I put it on to my additional hard drive instead, now when I run the FTX EU England Setup it asks me "Select which version you wish to install" however it has no other options other than "Please select..." I am stuck in this loop as I cannot proceed without picking an option. If anybody knows how I can rectify this situation it would be greatly appreciated. P.S I read somewhere I had to show my order number here otherwise I would not recieve any support. so I thought I would put it here FSS0500090
  10. Hello, I have just bought the ftx England region however im unsure how to 'activate' the region... on ftx central 3 it says the product is installed and up to date however the scenery isn't on my p3d? ive checked and its also not in my scenery library drop down menu? thanks in advance, callum

  13. I have FTX Global and England Region. I am noticing that when I fly at night the lights do not appear in front of the plane far enough away to see them from the cockpit. Lights seem to grow along roads only when the plane reaches them. If you look behind the plane in external view all the lighting is there. The land you are flying towards just looks dark which can't be right. Is there a setting I am missing to make the lights load ahead of the plane?
  14. Hello All, I have been having some issues with the grass at default airfields when using all of my currently installed regions. The reason this is frustrating is that I have just built a brand new PC and re installed everything and it's still happening. Just to save people some time too this is not just a DX10 issue, it happens in DX9 mode as well. The issue is there regardless of how far in or out the POV is zoomed, the only thing that does seem to make a difference is the camera angle. It also doesn't happen at any global airfields or Bowerman / West Wind, just at the default fields in the installed regions. This is never an issue when I first install the products, it always happens after installing the latest Orbx Libs. The only option I can think of is to remove / rename the BGL file? but I don't want to loose the grass at any payware airfields that may be installed at a later date. If anyone can help with this it would be great. Regards, Al At a different angle it's fine, it's the pesky little shrubs with yellow bits on that are the issue.

  16. Caaront started a thread about home airfields, so I chose one at random for a screen. This is the one Nick Cooper suggested, and here it is in the game. EGYK Elvington.
  17. Not a great screen shot, was confused about this jet parked on the tarmac @ EGNB, Brough, FTX England. Start of the runway don't look so hot either.

  20. Hello all! Haven't had much time for FSX in the last few days so decided to have a quick flight across West Yorkshire from Crosland Moor to Sheffield City and have put together my first set. Hope you all enjoy. Pre flight checks. Departing Huddersfield heading towards Wakefield. Passing Emily Moor. Heading towards the wind farm at Crow Edge. Passing Warncliff Wooods, aproaching Sheffield. Passing over Sheffield following the M62. On Base. Touch down. Shut down. Cheers, Al
  21. i downloaded the tasmania demo but i noticed that after loading it i get the FTX england runway textures at some runways rather than the rex4 textures. i uninstalled the demo as instructed in the pdf but when i reenable FTX england FTX central tries to put the tasmania files back into my scene library, how can i remove it for good alternatively if i purchase aus sp4 will the compatibility issue be fixed? airports where i have noticed it happening are EGCC and EGNM
  22. I'm am new to Orbx products and having recently purchased FTX GLOBAL and then FTX EU England I am very pleased with the results so far. My question is and after having seen FTX EU England running on someone else's PC, I was quite pleased to see how it upgraded the default airports making them look better than the default FSX ones. After installing the England scenary I thought I would position myself at Biggin Hill, an airfield which I know very well for real. I was a little disappointed as all I can see is a control tower building and that's it, no hangers or other buildings are present at all. This is a worse situation than the default EGKB before EU England was installed. I am sure having seen it running on another setup and seeing a better rendition of this Airport with more accurate buildings than the FSX Default. Any help or advise would be appreciated. I will take a look a other airfields I have used in FSX before and compaire in the mean time. I have Autogen etc all selected to MAX and this has made no difference. Other than this I am very pleased with Orbx so far. Thanks.
  23. Hi, I purchased FTX England yesterday and I've had some problems installing it; The wrapper works correctly but when i click on install, a window comes up for about a second where it puts "preparing to install". Then it closes and nothing happens. I own FTX Global and OpenLC. All help is appriciated! Greetings, Alex.
