  1. True Earth Northern California (ver. 1.0.0) is installed. Even with the previous N. California region uninstalled there are still a lot of elevation issues at KRDD (ver. 1.1.1). KHES, a tiny airfield, has a doubled runway. At KNUQ the open hanger is now closed by something; can no longer fly through the hanger, which used to be fun.
  2. I have a custom built simulator with glass cockpit built by (TRC Netherlands) which has a student station where I select an airport which then loads onto the projector screen, The problem is that whn I load these airports the don't load correctly and starts to spin including the compass on the G1000 MFD I have attached a very short video clip, IMG_4672.MOV IMG_4640.MOV IMG_4672.MOV IMG_4673.MOV please can anyone help me resolve this issue?
  3. Operating system: Window 10 Simulator: PD3v4 Screenshot: Issue: I love the DISCOVER page in Orbx Central. I found quite a few free airports to install. The airports installed are colored PURPLE, the ones for purchase are in RED, and the GRAY ones are free. However, there are 4 airports with the gray icon that are not free. The airports are ESKS, EGPN, LEEDS, and LGKO. You may want to update the color to RED.
  4. Hi I'm a big Australia fan and I like to fly in Australia. My biggest wish is to have Perth Intl.and Darwin Intl. Airport. Are there any plans for those two Airports in the future? I'm realy looking forward to that
  5. When you have a lot of ORBX airports, is there a way to check to make sure that all the installed airports are complete and have no missing objects? A file or integrity checker of sorts? Thanks.
  6. I know many of you are keen to see your current Orbx airports working as they should in AUv2 but final touches are still being implemented into Orbx Central which meant we have had to put these on hold. We have now decided to make these updates available for users to install themselves if they feel comfortable doing so. The following downloadable zips along with installation instructions are made available for those who wish to take advantage of this option. Of course, if you do not feel comfortable manually installing these updates, then you are welcome to wait for the official roll out via Orbx Central when the new system is released in a few weeks time. What to expect with these updates. There is no new content with any of these updates. They merely contain updated files to fix issues relating to the implementation of AUv2 in place of the older AUv1 and Holgermesh combination. Issues addressed relate mainly to scenery items showing through from the AUv2 additional airports and terrain irregularities from the newer, more detail terrain included in AUv2. Notes on installation of these updates. These updates assume your current install of the Australian airports and AUv2 are in the default location within FSX and P3D. It also assumes you have not made any adjustments to these files or folders from their original installation apart from those available through the relevant Control Panel options. If you have made adjustment you should reverse these before proceeding with these updates. Download and unzip the relevant zips for each of the airports you have installed, select the main ORBX folder within each of these update folders and copy it into your main FSX or P3D folder. You should receive a warning for the Control Panel xml file for each airport, select to overwrite and the appropriate files should then be installed. For the most part, these updates will not overwrite any of your current files except the existing Control Panel xml files. Once installed, your Orbx system will still be set up for AUv1. You will be required to open the Control Panel for each airport where you will find a new option to activate the airport for Orbx Australia Version 2 Installed. Selecting this option will switch the appropriate new files on and deactivate those for AUv1. If that new option is not available or changes made do not hold, then it is most likely the files did not go where they should or there are inconsistencies with your Orbx install. If you still have AUv1 and Holgermesh installed, you can still install these updates if you wish. Just do not select the option Orbx Australia Version 2 Installed. Doing this will make your Orbx airports ready should you upgrade to AUv2 at a later time. Notes on files to download. You will note there are a number of separate updates for FSX and P3D. Many of the older addon airport files for FSX and earlier versions of P3D were slightly different to the more recent installs for P3D V3 and P3D V4. The following is a guide as to which zip you should download and install depending on the sim platform you are using. - For FSX, P3D V1 and P3D v2 - Download the FSX update. - For P3D V3 and P3D V4 - Download the P3D update. - Updates not identified as being for either sim are good for all platforms.

  7. My issue is I have now over 10 airports with the Jetway in the sky. I do 90 Percent of my flying in USA. I have verified all my products and ran FTX Global airport elevation and no change just same . Thank you in advance for your help. William
  8. Please help I am a relative newbie but have successfully installed all three True Earth UK Scenery packs on my mac. I have bought Southampton and Sumburgh and tried to install last night. After reading forums I wonder if missing Orbx libraries is the problem. Downloaded today and its a folder with seven zip files in. Not sure what to do with them and where to put them - all help appreciated. I realise I am probably missing something obvious. Thanks in advance for help. Log.txt

  10. Hi All. I installed the freeware FTX Global Airport Pack and would like to visit the included airports in P3d, but unfortunately have no idea which airports are included (No User Guide PDF available). It will be appreciated if the relevant airports could be listed by the community. Thank you.
  11. Okay, off course vector, global would be one off their most popular buys and the regions off course will be somewhere on top off the popularity list for the amount off people buying that product, but what product sells best Orbx??? If you don't mind answering for the top 3 best selling airport+region, I have a hunch PNW+Australia is the best selling region but what about the airport? And please correct me if I'm wrong about the region! An answer after Xmas specials would make sense but an answer now during the sales would be interesting! Note: the airport doesn't have to be apart off a best selling region or a region at all...!
  12. Hi all, Firstly, thank you for all the wonderful freeware you supply. It's absolutely marvellous. I am having some issues with manual downloads of some airports (https://orbxdirect.com/freeware). They seem to be out of date. EO49 - Latest version 1.05 ,but manual download is 1.00 CAC8 - Latest version 1.20 ,but manual download is older CAG8 - Latest version 1.10 ,but manual download is 1.00 CAX6 - Latest version 1.05 ,but manual download is 1.00 What does this mean? Well it means that when you go to manually install in FTX Central it scans the file realises its out of date and tries to download the latest version. Normally, that would be fine, however I am using the "Fastlane" version of FTX Central which for me just instantly pauses and is stuck paused, whenever you try to download anything at all. So I have to use this manual download feature, which is fine, but only if the latest files can be downloaded. Is there someway the files for the above manual downloads can be updated please? Otherwise overall, love all of your products and generally have few issues with them. Keep up the good work! Bully.
  13. Hello everyone! This summer the heat has reached record highs - luckily senior developer Andreas Hegi has a brand new airport to cool you down a little! LSPN Triengen Airport is the first Swiss venture for Andreas, whose previous work includes classic airports such as Darrington, Orcas Island and Milford Sound. Not only do you get LSPN Triengen Airport in this pack, but it also includes a bonus airfield which is nestled amongst beautiful landscapes in Central Switzerland complete with rolling hills and sparkling lakes. This is a particularly special airport for the developer as Andreas actually lives in the area, so lots of time has been spent meticulously crafting small details which really bring it to life. He has even done all of the photography for R&D, having got permission to access both airfields! Located at N 47 ° 13 '36 "- E 08 ° 04' 41" and 1594 ft (486 meters) above sea level, Triengen Airport is used mainly for sightseeing flights where tourists can experience unforgettable views of some of Switzerland's most iconic mountains. LSPN also boasts a flight school, aerobatics, skydiving facilities, and of course the famous Flying Ranch restaurant. Points of Interest: Schloss Mauensee - an old chateau located on a small island The Landessender Beromünster radio tower Lake Sempach Golf-Sempachersee featuring custom buildings The central church of Triengen Key Features Incredibly detailed, high definition rendition of LSPN Triengen Airport and LSZO Luzern-Beromünster - about 145 square kilometers Scenic landscape location Offers stunning and challenging visual approaches Realistic HD textures created from on-site photography 30cm per pixel coverage Features Orbx Flow technology Wind active landing T direction indication Detailed visual charts included in the User Guide Includes many custom modeled POI’s including churches, a historic radio tower, a castle, a hospital and several industrial areas Hand placed autogen Compatible with FSX and all versions of P3D In addition to LSPN, we have also included LSZO Luzern-Beromünster so you can experience the region at it's very best. LSPN Triengen Airport will be available to purchase from OrbxDirect soon for AUD $32.95 (approx. USD $24.35 / €21 / £18.50 ) Coverage area map: Here are a few screenshots from Emmsie. Don't forget to stay tuned here and on our Facebook and Twitter pages for plenty more shots over the coming days!
  14. I use FTX Global BASE, Vector and EU LC. It works perfect. I recently installed the freeware EU airports and EU airport Pack. The problem I have is that the trees belonging to the airports pop-up at a far closer distance than the scenery trees. So when I am on final approach I see the airport and as I come closer the trees surrounding the airport pop up, while all other trees are present as far as I can see. Anyone here who has the same problem or knows a sollution. Thx!!
  15. Hi Scenery Wizz-Kids, Is there anyone out there who can help me with acquiring the bridges over the River Tyne, at Newcastle. I have the EU England region, but unless I have my scenery set up incorrectly, all I have spanning the River Tyne are 'planks'. Any help much appreciated. Regards, Robin Allison
  16. Hi guys Ok, after installing P3D v4.1 on a new rig, then installing FTX Central, downloading library and scenery, Milford Sound (NZMF) again has sunken into the ground: Running the FTX Global Vector Configuration Tool, run auto configuration for airport elevation correction, OK, then APPLY once it is through, still, it leaves the situation at NZMF unchanged. I run the account on the Win10 Pro machine with admin priviledges. P3D however does notice if I change something within the AEC in the Configuration Tool, as it does re-process the scenery indices when starting the sim. Ist there any other way to influence the mesh situation of the airfields? Here, I list my scenery library, how it is installed in the sim: There is no scenery besides 3 unrealated (different regions) FSGU NG (South America, Africa and Asia) meshes installed. Is there an other way to force the airport altitude to mesh altitude? Best Regards
  17. I just got FS Global Ultimate NG for Prepar3d v4 and some stock airports have field elevation issues. According to Pilot’s (developers of FSGUNG), this is due fact that these airports do not have accurate airport field elevations.But does Orbx payware airports not have these issues? Do all Orbx airports correctly depict field elevations? I’ve tested Orbx’s LOWI and haven’t noticed any issues. Best,
  18. Hi, I am with the latest P3D v4.1 and have the latest FTX central. After installing all the regions, global, lc and airports, I am having trouble with some UK airports. At Fairoaks I see trees through the pavement (see below) and at Sumburgh it seems that textures from the region are mixing with the airport addon. I erased and rebuild prepar3d.cfg, shaders and sceneryindexes. Could this be a problem of something else that needs to be erased and rebuild? Thanks for any advice.
  19. In Google Earth I created notifications for all freeware airports. I use FSC from Volker Heine and made the link to Google Earth. This way I can exactly see where I fly, what I use for my video recordings. So, now everyone who is interested can open this file in Google Earth and create flight plans based on the freeware airports. Download: FTX Freeware Airports - September 2017.kml Have a nice flight, Wil
  20. Hello everybody, I am new to ORBX and I recently bought FTX Global Base Pack. I have downloaded all the freewares. My question is related to the EU and NA airport packs. I don't know which airports are including in these packs... Difficult for me to find out where to fly Thanking you in advance for your precious advises Pascal
  21. I am using both FSX and FSX-SE with FTX Global Vector and have both choices showing in FTX Central when started. I have no problems with FSX but in FSX-SE after running Vector I have no airports showing up in the right hand "AEC IS Disabled For" window and have a lot of airports that do not show properly. I just updated the latest version 1.52 of Vector hoping this would fix the problem but no joy. I went through earlier and manually disabled the ones that, in FSX, show being done automatically. That fixed the airports but after running the latest updated version it went back to none showing in the Disabled window being excluded. Do I have something I have done improperly or any clue what is going on. It has never worked in FSX-SE properly and I have had to manually exclude airports to make them show properly. I even copied all the files from FSX Vector program into FSX-SE Vector program to see if that worked prior to this latest update but no joy with that either. Any clues?? Norm
  22. I created HD videos (and still am continuing with that) of the flights I made between the free airports of ORBX. I recorded the videos by using Screencast-O-Matic which is working great. All videos are links to YouTube from my website www.wilveenstra.nl Have fun, Wil
  23. Seems that ORBX is not allowing exclusion rectangles at their airports, specifically within FTX Global OpenLC North America. Checked the order of scenery loading and it's good to go with my addon scenery folder at the top of the food chain. Also, I am able to exclude airport buildings/objects in Rome. Trees and vegetation CAN be excluded anywhere in the world so I'm guessing my problem is limited to actual objects and not autogen. I typically use Instant Scenery 3 to exclude objects with no problems. The airports I've been tweaking are in the United States. I can add objects all day long and make any other runway and additions, modifications with no problem but trying to exclude....no joy. My sim is P3D V3.4.9.18400 I've got ORBX Global and Global OpenLC North America Windows 10 Any ideas? Thanks.
  24. Hello, Just curious, how would one become a contributor to the FTX Global Airports pack? Sorry if this has already been asked. It's quite possible that I may have missed a thread. I've dabbled in creating sceneries for roughly the last five years, (going on six) so I know all the basics for the task. (Besides advanced modeling and techniques. I never really picked that up. But I'm slowly working on that..) I don't have time for my own full-scale projects at the moment due to work, but I still enjoy sprucing up smaller locations in my time off. Instead of just making something that only I would use here and there, I think it would be more appropriate to contribute to the FTX Global Airports pack(s), as they could then be used by the flightsim community. If anyone could point me in the right direction, that would be awesome. Chris Britton
  25. Hey, Yesterday I purchased both Northern and Southern California from the ORBX website. I have several regions bought and I never had any problems with them. As you can see from the photos, some hangars are black. Is there any known solution to this? Transaction IDs are 585d78e659699 and 585d78e659699. Thanks, Francisco
