  1. Hi all. Could someone inform me if there is a sequence of installation of products ex: Should I install Base Pack first, the OpenLC then Vector. Also is there a quick way to enable or disable these products. Example when I am flying commercial Jets at 35,000 feet I do no require all the details. Please let me know. Thanks Bat.
  2. So... I took off from one 7,600' airport, flew for 2 hours and landed at another 7,600' airport. This is going to look gorgeous once it's no longer default LC. From Addis Ababa to Asmara. and I'm at 19k'.... Just over the ridge it drops very quickly to only a couple of hundred feet. Must be a real steep drop, but I never got that far... Sorry... got carried away again...
  3. Another milk run took me from Quito to Panama to Mexico City (that's a long way, just quietly), Acapulco, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Houston and New Orleans. MMMX to KIAH was AeroMexico AM228 in a DC-9 - there and back (AM229) in a 12 hour day in a DC-9. Some randoms from the trip, in no particular order: Mike
  4. Santo Domingo to San Juan Gear up... Picking up the radial Good bye to the Dominican Republic Hello to Puerto Rico Miami to San Juan with the four stops was 7.4 hours logged in the sim. There is a milk run in reverse, but I think I'll park that for now. Much more to explore... Mike
  5. Leaving a grey Jamaica: Haiti ahead: Time to head down: Port Au Prince: Better conditions than Kingston: One more stop before San Juan.
  6. The hop from Montego Bay to Kingston on PA431, Miami to San Juan milk run. Settled en route Probably should have tuned the localiser... 23°C, dew point: 23°C... Next stop Port Au Prince in Haiti.
  7. The milk run to San Juan from Miami in 1961: Crossing Cuba. I wonder what protocol in 1961 was... Into Montego Bay The next hop is across to Kingston.
  8. TNCM to KOFP in a DC-6A. A mere 5 hours... but flying a four engined airliner at 6k' instead of 36k' does kinda make up for it: The Bahamas: So... the forecast wasn't good And so it proved Mike
  9. Some more from my Italian tour: Inbound Naples: Depart Naples shortly after: Cool lighting enroute to Palermo: Now... one really should check topo maps. There is a rather large hill that look like it had the side blasted off to make room for the airport.
  10. Never been to Sardinia in the sim (I don't think). Flew in from Rome. This is Alghero to Cagliari. Straight 'v's. Next leg is back to Rome. Fair to say I'm a bit of a fan of openLC. It opens up a whole lot of the world. Mike
  11. Left Heathrow well before sun up. Descending into an early spring dawn... Mike
  12. I'm having some issues regarding airport runway textures & grass not appearing at PAVD after installing Vector. Up until installing vector I have had ZERO issues with any OrbX scenery. Could someone who has P3Dv4.2 installed along with FTX Global, Open_LC_NA, Vector, FTX Southern Alaska and PAVD Valdez installed check and see how your airport looks? I would *GREATLY* appreciate hearing if everyone else has grass and runway/taxiway textures at this airport. Any info is much appreciated!!!
  13. Gorgeous spring day in the east.
  14. Spent some quality time flying through Thailand on my day off today. Having started in Sydney a while ago I have been gradually doing short legs north through Australia/PNG/Indonesia/Singapore/Malaysia and now Thailand. The aim is to go through Asia, the Mid-East and Europe to London. Not sure if I'll keep going after that or start something new. I'm not too sure I'd want to do the leg from Europe to North America, given that I'm flying low'n'slow in fairly short hops, that could be challenging and fairly desolate across the Atlantic I'm guessing! Anyway, I have all of the ORBX global and region products, although I guess in this part of the world it's just Global and Vector that apply. I also have the FS Global 2010 mesh. Sadly no payware airports in the region, so until I get to Europe it will be a bit "vanilla", but I have to say I'm still enjoying the flying and the scenery regardless. I've now gotten as far as Bangkok: And here are a few shots from today's 4 legs which were WMKP (Penang) <--> VTSP (Phuket) VTSP (Phuket) <--> VTSM (Ko Samui) VTSM (Ko Samui) <--> VTBP (Prachuap) VTBP (Prachuap) <--> VTBD (Bangkok) The aircraft is Carenado's Embraer Phenom 100.
  15. I am setting up a new machine - currently with P3D4.2, the complete Orbx Oceania offerings, and a few of the NA Regions. Whilst I have purchased Global Base, Vector and some Open LC offerings during sales, I do not intend to fly globally for a while and won't complicate things by installing them yet. My question though is : Would my Oceania "coastline" experience benefit by installing just "Vector", at least until the promised upgrade of AUS is released, which I assume will have a hugely improved coastline rendition? In other words, would vector on its own work with the AUS & NZ full fat regions, or would I be inviting heartache and CTDs? Would FTX Central even allow installation of Vector without Global??? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.........cheers.
  16. Ready to roll: Potomac: Appalachians: Inbound: Parked up:
  17. Finally have a PTA which allows me good night visuals without having to turn off HDR lighting. Still can't get lighting far off in the distance, and deal with some shimmering in the lighting, but overall I am pleased and can live with the rest.
  18. Wasn't too busy with the "v" key, so just three shots enroute from the Denver area down to Santa Fe.
  19. Naturally I had to take advantage of the generous sales to buy a few new toys over the holidays. New Sedona addition enjoyed with a nice new complex flyer. Sedona, AZ to Provo, UT with a Grand Canyon crossing. Enjoy!
  20. (famous 1980's movie misquote, for those going 'huh?' ) I didn't wind up on SQ11. This is CX5 bound to Taipei, over southern Japan. Hong Kong or Manila next. Getting around a lot of the greater Orbx world in this thing. Bring on OLC AFR...
  21. I have FS Global 2010 installed, I am not sure if this will help or hinder the ftx sceneries..global, vector, trees etc. How should this be layered or is it automatically layered in p3dv4.1? Thank you, Bob M.
  22. Third flight in the B744. Still learning how to drive it... Coming up on Milwaukee: Headed for the top of the MSP ILS.
  23. A nice view of US from the flightdeck..... FTX Global base+Vector+NA OLC......great result ..!
  24. Madrid behind Last light from the FE's seat
