  1. I had issues with sunken runways at Whenuapai (NZWP). I was looking for an alternative airport to NZAA that had ILS available and Whenuapai suited well except that the height issues made it unusable. I had all sorts of "stuff" installed with FSX but with my Prepar3D installation, stuck with ORBX vector scenery worldwide including most of my airports. The only non- ORBX airport scenery I have installed is for Wellington, Christchurch, Nelson & Dunedin. Certainly noting in the Auckland area. In trying to find a solution for my NZWP issues (I had already run the FTX Central Vector utility wit
  2. I bought countless products from your company, including all about New Zealand (and look forward to the release of the next airport). How much I like this country! But sadly - I just play P3D and go to any airport in New Zealand, CTD! After reading all the scenes and textures...etc.(P3D v4 CTD every airport in New Zealand.) Some questions have been raised in your company forum (New Zealand new install and CTD issue), But in the end there is no conclusion! I had to put these scenes in the refrigerator first... Do you have any ideas or suggestions? I am running P3D v4.3, the installation
  3. Hello everyone, Following last week's announcement, Finni Hansen's NZGS Gisborne Airport is now available for purchase on OrbxDirect. NZGS is situated on the outskirts of Gisborne, on the East Coast of the North Island in New Zealand and is one of the few airports in the world that has a railway line, the Palmerston North-Gisborne Line, crossing the main runway (see video below). Gisborne Airport airport is situated just next to the ocean in Poverty Bay, with spectacular views of the Young Nick’s Head mountain as you depart over open waters. It c
  4. This week I bought and installed my last 2 regions: New Zealand North and South Island. However, strange things are happening. First of all, the planes look not to be positioned good: (Little Navmap) When planes are moving the taxi through buildings: But looking at Google Earth after exporting from Little NavMap it looks good there: I don't get the point and am rather confused. Are you familiar with this behavior and can you help me out. Have a nice flight, Wil
  5. Hi There simmer, this is my video about AI Traffic Australia and New Zealand by Orbx! Enjoy! Regards, Almedin
  6. So, I haven't had much time to fly lately, and even less time to take screenshots and post them. That said, I managed a short flight out of Whangarei and flew in a meandering northerly direction, landing at the Bay of Islands airfield in Kerikeri. Once landed, I noticed an odd advertisement for a place far far away from Kerikeri...pretty cool! It is in the last screenshot: #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 Not sure who has found that before, but it is the first time I have seen it Love the little
  7. Hi Everyone, I'm new to orbx and I have a quick question before I purchase any of the products. Is there any means to purchase a complete package for example. If I purchase the South Island pack, Do I need to purchase the Queenstown pack separately or is this included in the south Island pack. Better yet is there a simple way to Purchase every product available to New Zealand in one pack? Apologies if this post is duplicated, I'm having trouble navigating the forums and I'm eager to get underway. Cheers Kevin Thomas.

  9. Kia ora, welcome to NZWR Whangarei Airport, Orbx's first North Island airport; located in the northernmost city in New Zealand in the Northland region of the North Island. Whangarei has been on my radar for several years now, and with the assistance of one of our forums members (tuisong) for on-site photography this beautiful NZ destination has been made possible. This project includes the airport itself along with a large amount of photoreal coverage of the bay and valley that the city of Whangarei itself is in. There are some additional locations included in this package, including 3 helipad
  10. This is just a small grouse concerning the Milford Sound airport scenery. First off, I just love this area, and I think Orbx did a wonderful job with it. However, there just a few things that I have noticed that could be fixed. Firstly, concerning the waterfall that is next to the marina (I think it is called Bowen Falls). In my sim the large water spray sprites appear about 100 yards in front of the falls rather than at the foot of the falls. They make it look like there is a geyser that is right in front of the falls. I can actually fly between these sprites and the falls itself. Secondly, w
  11. Hey Guys, So I recently started using Orbx and I found the AI Traffic, YES!!! although I done everything it wants me to do but I cant find any AI aircraft in game, I fly YMML-YSSY back and fourth as JQ502 (real flight) with my Aerosoft A320, and have not come across a single AI Aircraft... not one... I don't have FTX Global or any Orbx Payware as I cant afford it but I'm pretty sure it says that I can use AI Traffic AU/NZ with default FSX airports. Also on FTX Central I attempt to configure the product and when ever I close the window to "save" my preferences (Enhanced ATC sound fi
  12. Spent sometime working in Fielding this week. so thought I would try some local flights there but when I did the taxiways and Runway where under the Ground please see the Attached Picture If anyone can Advise what I need to fix it would be great Thanks Greg
  13. Just reporting a glitch in the New Zealand south island scenery in P3d. Entering the airspace around this landing strip (NZFJ) from the west or the north, or departing the strip in either of those directions causes the plane to crash, as if there is an invisible wall. I am able to make an approach or departure on 28. Not on 10. John Ring - WIndows 10, P3d v3.4 and FSX, 5919baafb39fe
  14. 15 videos in and I'm ALMOST done. Just looking for some water runways to finish with. Any ideas?
  15. Hi Everyone, I was wondering if some kind soul would help me please ? I have a strange problem with my New Zealand Regions in P3dV3 , I have Crash detection problems i will be just flying along nicely , then crash in midair. Another scenario is i take off and again it will crash as if ive crashed into and object ??, I have tried different planes so its not any particular aircraft. on my FTX Global its fine , i dont get this issue , its only when i have oceania (New Zealand Regions) Installed , so im guessing this is a problem ? , I have adjusted the mesh sett
  16. I did a fresh install of FSX to an new computer and installed FTX New Zealand North island scenery using FlightSim Store installer. FSX is out of the box, I haven't tweaked fsx.cfg file or done anything yet to corrupt the program. I took off for a short test flight from Napier airport, and the surroundings are flooding with water. What could cause this? I haven't seen this problem before and I don't know how to begin to solve this. Is this a problem of scenery library, or did the installation fail or does this have something to do with graphics card or what? Help!
  17. Hey everyone, I just joined this forum after looking for some addons for FSX:SE. After reading a bit I've come to understand that all the FTX products (found on FlightSimStore) are compatible with the Steam Edition (and I have no addons whatsoever installed for it as of now). However, the sheer mass of information may have been a little too much for me: I was looking for something to enable me to fly in my home country, which is New Zealand (although I've been living in Europe for more than 10 years now I miss home every day). I was wondering if there are any fellow Kiwis around who give give
  18. Hi, ALL: I found two unpainted(Color Black) aircrafts at NZMF after I installed Orbx Milford Sound Airport, anyone have the same problem with me?
  19. Light piston powered twins are my favourite aircraft type to fly in the sim, and I've recently added the Flysimware C402C to my virtual hanger. Below is a test flight from Dunedin to Greymouth, with the HD blue and white livery matching the wintry Southern Alpine landscape below. The photoreal scenery in shots 6 and 7 are part of the REAL NZ subscription package, and blend perfectly with the FTX region! No shots from the landing sorry- it was an eyes outside job!
  20. Hi there, I have the beautiful Queenstown airport installed over the NZSI area. Unfortunately I manually adjusted some levels in the Scenery Library and accidentally moved some of the ORBX entries. Now the runway at NZQN sits in a gulley where the terrain levels are messed up. I've tried moving things around to bring it back to normal but fear I've just made the problem worse. Can anybody suggest a solution, or perhaps post a screenshot of their scenery library so I might be able to figure out where everything should sit? Cheers, Matt
  21. Queenstown today, at sunrise. Was going to a barbecue ... LOL! PS. I'll leave a piece of meat and a mug of beer for those who show up.
  22. Hello there, after installing the latest NZ patch I get problems at Milford Sound. It seems to be related to the mesh somehow. Any suggestions as to a remedy would be most welcome! Thanks Greetings from Norway Anton Image will follow shortly! />http://fsfiles.org/flightsimshotsv2/images/2013/01/25/5O2W.jpg Around the helipad the mesh and the ground textures seem all confused. Good old Vanagon being eaten by the road etc.
