  1. Over the lakeside of Chicago in direction of the, for the old MS-flightsims, default legendary Meigs airport. In the current flightsim's a more lifelike looking scenery:
  2. hi, as a big fun of orbx products (and owner of almost everything-soon everything), i think i could ... complain once no, im not the type who wants the money back or i dont know what else people in the past have asked you but i would ask, my problem, to be solved and improved so here we are: i got yesterday kcgx airport for p3d v4. full of happyness i tried to fly there but no ... kcgx in the nav database !! i use navigraph products. so if i didnt do something wrong, i think the kcgx airport is just a ... graphic. not a "real" airport in the p3d world. for example, flytampa's kai tak, even if it is also an airport that no longer exists today, it works perfectly: you can program the fmc with the departures, arrivals, stars etc etc. but on the kcgx there is nothing im not a programmer or somebody who knows much, but i think it is just a matter of data input to make it work with fmcs of pmdg, qualitywings, fslabs etc etc. i grew up in the 70-80ies so old airports like kcgx are important for me. so again, if i didn't do something wrong and the kcgx has navigation data but i didnt find a way to use them, pls try to fix it. to have vor's, ndb's ils and all other goodies it had back then when it worked. sorry for my long post, thank you !!!
  3. The Chicago Area after latest update for Aerofly FS2, shows a lot more autogen over a vast area around the city centre:
  4. After the update on the Chicago city area, the visible autogen on buildings and trees is greatly exptended but some issues: 1. Misplaced buildings or constructions on the Cumberland Hiway-crossing close to airport O'Hare, direction NW from Chicago: 2. Why not the airport O'Hare and/or Midway usuable next to the magnificent, but not actual existing anymore Meigs? Both have only flat photoscenery. I'm willing to pay for one or both if in future made available as extra scenery add-on:

  7. Hi Guys, I'm having a problem using the Meigs Scenery when the Meigs Scenery is checked in the scenery library Meigs appears in all its glory but a limited Chicago skyline. When the Meigs is uncheck I'm over a park with a few airplanes and the Chicago skyline is visible.

  8. I've been trying to rack my brain and going in circles here. So I appreciate the help. I'll try to break it down. 1. Tried installing the following products to my FSX-SE set up: FTX Global + Vector + KCGX (Meigs Field). I was having issues seeing Chicago Skyline and Meigs and then started to question whether or not I actually installed it correctly. Realized I also had GEX installed so I figured I'd blow it all up and start over. 2. Uninstalled FSX:SE, carefully following steps listed on various websites including PMDG and others. Took my time, cleared registries, etc. 3. Reinstalled FSX:SE. Restarted computer. Followed all those steps. I then figured I'd reinstall my add-ons using the ground-up system. 4. Tried to install FTX Global. Ran into issues where FTX could not find my scenery.cfg. So I renamed the Microsoft FSX folder to FSX:SE. Or maybe it was reversed, sorry, not in front of my computer, but, regardless, I renamed a folder and I got FTX Global to not give me any scenery.cfg error messages after pressing Apply. 5. I then made sure the scenery.cfg file in that folder that I renamed was changed. The time/date modified updated. I then copied that scenery.cfg file into my Steam FSX folder. Replaced old one. I read that FSX:SE uses THAT scenery.cfg file. Correct move?? 6. Restarted. Fired up FSX:SE and flew out of Chicago (Midway) to test it out. I also made sure that the ORBX scenery files were listed in the FSX:SE settings (they were). Looked nice, I guess, but I started wondering if FTX was installed correctly. What really made me wonder was flying to downtown Chicago, I saw no familiar skyscrapers. It looked like a bunch of generic buildings. No Sears (called Willis now), Hancock, no Navy Pier, no Chicago Bears Soldier Field. And I know I've seen those structures in base, untouched FSX:SE. So it's making me question if I installed correctly or what's going on. 7. I then installed FTX Vector. Did same Scenery.cfg file steps I explained above. 8. I then thought maybe KCGX (Meigs) would be what I needed to see correct Chicago Skyline. I installed that. Same scenery.cfg file steps. Loaded up FSX:SE and still nothing. No Meigs Field. No skyline. No Navy Pier. Soldier Field. Nothing. So now I'm left stumped. I had a fresh install of FSX:SE. No other add-ons or scenery. And I'm left questioning if I'm actually seeing the effects of FTX. I don't want to "think" I'm looking at the scenery and then realize that I'm looking at stock FSX. And what's going on with KCGX? I have NO idea! With FTX Global, should I see the Chicago Skyline? Or is that just with Meigs Airport add-on? If it's just with Meigs, then why can't I see Meigs or anything Meigs contains? These are questions that are driving me crazy. I have no problem doing another uninstall and fresh install. But maybe I'm missing something and doing it incorrectly. I've been scouring the internet and forums for a while now. Please help. I DID create a ticket or support request through FTX Central. Here is the code that I'm supposed to copy and paste to a tech: ot4c6c16fcf39c561bc02c7b0b69aaeec3 Thank you for reading and thanks for any and all help that anyone can give.
  9. Hello Everyone! I am new to this whole thing so I am sorry if I am in the wrong thread or this has been already answered but will orbx be doing any scenery for the chicago area, like FTX chicago, FTX lake michigan, or any airports near the chicago area? Or do they plan to do one within the year? I would love to see a decent scenery of the chicago area. Thanks!
