  1. Hello, Ive had the ORBX EU England map for FSX SE for about 4 months now and when I download the scenery, in game it just has squares with grass and doesnt actually give me the scenery, does anyone know whats up with that or how to fix it? Thanks in advance.
  2. Transaction ID: 5bdecea0b1661 Hello, I have purchased EU England (Transaction ID: 5bdecea0b1661). I have installed it using FTX Central, it has downloaded but not added to the Scenery library; have I missed a step? Thanks Chris
  3. 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
  4. Hi I'm still a beginner with ORBX & FSX having loaded FTX Global: Base, openLC Europe, openLC North America, Vector and Trees HD at Christmas. Love the scenery and all was working well with Just Flight payware products. I have just loaded EU England, Scotland and Wales (which I love) but have developed some interesting issues in that my Just Flight products have become transparent to various levels and as such unusable. I can however see my payware Carenado A36 Bonanza and all FS default aircraft as normal. See attached screenshots and settings. Can anyone offer and solutions/help please?

  5. In P3D v3.4 I installed FTX EU England. Most of it looks ok, but if I'm flying from London City airport (EGLC) I see very few of the authentic buildings that are so characteristic for this scenery. What is missing is Canary Warf, Tower Bridge, Tower, O2 Arena, Big Ben, Westminster, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, BT Tower and many more. I have uninstalled, reinstalled this package, reinstalled ORBX libraries, etc. Setting scenery settings to the max, nothing solved this problem. As a last attempt I installed ORBX on FSX on the same disk and to my surprise the picture of the City is complete here! Normally I never fly with FSX, so this doen't help me much. In the library list and order in P3D I find nothing wrong. Has anyone seen this before or have a clue?
  6. Too many sales on right now! Been hoovering up some bargains in various places - need a bigger hangar now for sure. Funny thing is, even though I've also been to the ORBX sale (a couple of times), grabbed the latest freebies (CAX6, NA airports etc) and also bought Catalina, I still seem to be flying in the last lot of old faves most of the time. I keep finding more to look at in SoCal, don't have time to explore the new places yet! Anyway, some lovely '50s stuff has come my way in this lot. But starting with an update for the C17 (v3) And now, a selection of airplanes that lodged themselves in my small boy brain back then. Had plastic kits of most of these, and various books I wore out with mucky juvenile thumbprints at the time - I remember having a particularly fine, quite large scale, model of one of these - these next two always looked like toys in real life anyway- This F-3 is a beaut! Already been out and about creating mayhem in SoCal with this lovely beast And I suspect this one will be out and about a bit as well Particularly in this lovely subtle skin! And as I'd quite enjoyed a recent flight or two in a smaller Airbus, I thought I'd get these as well - Most of these supposedly FSX only, but all seem ok in P3D via EMT. Enjoy! (I know I'm gonna!)
  7. I can't seem to get EU England working alongside FTX Global in FSX. I've never had any issues with FTX Global, but after installing EU England my textures have become completely confused across all of England. The best way to describe what I mean is with screenshots: After takeoff from runway 07 EGNT Upon reaching the coast the sea appearing as trees: My scenery priority (copied from instructions found online) - everything above what you can see below is just my addon airport scenery. I'm using FTX Central V3. Can anyone advise if they've had the same problem or where I'm going wrong? Thanks
  8. Martyn, your Meteor post made me think about aircraft of that sort of period (and Airfix kits), and I found myself thinking about this beast. I had a very fine plastic kit of this that I was very proud of (I was very pleased with my paint job, as I remember), so I had a quick scout around online and found this freeware version. There used to be a payware version but that doesn't seem to be available anymore. I'd love to see a Carenado or Alabeo version of this. Out from Exeter, and then round to over Plymouth turning round to head back and a top down view over what should be the Naval Yard at Plymouth. I remember now why I hadn't been over impressed with the England scenery - some of the stuff down this part of the world is pretty poor, in the built environment particularly. I know you can't have everywhere done to 100% accuracy but I would have thought something like the docks here, or even Plymouth Hoe, could have been included. Still, those Orbx folk don't do badly generally <grin> If you haven't already got this and want a copy I got it from Flightsim.com
  9. Have always had mixed feelings about Orbx's England, so thought I ought to explore it a bit more. Does feel a bit better to me now after some of the PTA tweaks. I've no idea how realistic these colours are - I thought at first it was all a bit Disney and over saturated, but reading JV's comments in one of his posts about how vivid things really are from up there maybe it's ok set like this. Not that I'm that worried about realism, ultimately - it looks good to me and hey - it's my world! This little leg started out near York, and headed up the coast. Live weather as usual, and set for late spring. Heading towards Scarborough Middlesborough nearest, Hartlepool the other side of the river's mouth. Went to both of these towns in the '70s, and they were really quite grim then - I'm guessing things have perked up a bit since then. Up the coast a bit, heading for the mouth of the Tyne, flanked by South and North Shields Swinging up the Tyne towards Newcastle Heading inland a bit to turn round and put down at Newcastle Airport And that's when the weather broke - chucking it down and heavy storms Welcome to rainy Newcastle. Trip to be continued later
  10. Fancied a change, so off I went. Miserable day here for departure (flying what is probably a non-approved route and certainly too low, about 8000 ft, but I wanted to see the ground below) What is it with me and storms? Can't I go anywhere without hitting one? They don't seem that frequent in real life but ASN seems to love them. And this is why looking out the window in RL is boring! Still murky over northern France But cheering up by the time we get down Provence way Looks good down there, I'll have to come back and have a low and slow visit soon. Hit some cloud again coming up to the Spanish border Skip the boring bit over the Med and coming in to Majorca from the north-west heading in to land Bit heavy on the brakes, probably a few spilled drinks in the cabin Sounds a bit sad, but seeing the airport there gave me a real blast of that "open the doors and walk into a wall of hot dry air" feeling. I thought the colours and vibe were really well done. Almost enough to make me want to go somewhere hot for real.
  11. Continuing on from Newcastle, up the coast to Berwick, across the borders countryside to the east coast and put down in Carlisle. Change of livery for the Lancair - just got myself a bunch of repaints. So, just out from Newcastle, heading off towards the coast, then north Holy Island ahead - wonder what that looks like? Turned out to be just generic landclass, so didn't bother with a capture. Berwick upon Tweed ahead and now behind, as we swing inland to head across to the other coast Got lucky on this trip, with some nicely atmospheric conditions. And the Borders countryside looks quite fine. My opinion of the England product has gone up quite a bit on this trip. Gretna Green behind me in this picture A little bit further on and I'm heading in to Carlisle where there seem to be some rather strange visitors parked (nothing to do with me, they were just there) A bit further on, and the company seems a bit more feasible. Will resume and head down the eastern side of the country later.
  12. Encouraged by the effects of JV's PTA ini file, I've been having a tweak or two of my own. I've tended to be reluctant to play too much in the past - don't really know why, I just tend to get something that feels ok and leave it alone, but now I'm documenting my changes as I go so I feel more in control of it. Beginning to feel very lifelike out there! Went back and started from Humberside, wanted to see what the greenery looked like. Just my luck - ran into a storm. So a few shots taken on a run out to the mouth of the Humber, then back up the river to the bridge again. (actually caught that at normal speed - wasn't storm chasing this time) (the little dot in the middle of the screen is me!) Thanks again to Scott for introducing me to the Legacy, and thanks to JV for the settings info.
  13. Chopper trip Needles, jump in,
  14. hereby a collection of shots taken while flying over different UK-areas and/or on randomly choosen airports:
  15. I love the detail and the quick response of the Harrier GR7/GR9 modelled by Razbam, I fly over a part of UK not far from Southampton.
  16. So, coming around Berry Head you can see the port of Brixham protected by its breakwater pier. Brixham is where William of Orange landed when he was called to take back the English throne back whenever (forget the date). He, of course, went on to become the patron saint of the Belfast marching teams. This next one is up towards the Torquay end of the bay, and if the scenery were accurate here I could probably point out my house. But in terms of position we're about dead centre of the shot, by the patch of trees visible below the plane's left wing. Looking back towards Brixham, the plane still pretty much in the same position as above - Skipping over Torquay and the top end of the bay itself as the scenery is again a bit generic, and turning north again. This is over a "suburb" of Torquay called Babbacombe, which is another really pretty bit of coast. While I'm in the mood for trivia (and this really is trivial), the little theatre on Babbacome Downs is where Bruce Forsyth spent a couple of his early seasons in variety. There's also one of the country's best model villages down there. We're now pointing up towards Teignmouth, then on to Exmouth, and beyond that to the Jurassic Coast of East Devon and Dorset. Looking back over Torbay A couple of miles up the coast and we're at the mouth of the Teign (which runs down from Dartmoor). The bit on the left of the river mouth is Shaldon, and is yet another amazingly pretty village, and the main town on the opposite bank is Teignmouth. Maybe not as cutesy as Shaldon but still a good place to visit. On from Teignmouth, and the bit in the middle here is Dawlish, where the rail line collapsed a couple of winters ago in the storms (and also the setting for the opening scenes of John Le Carre's 'A Perfect Spy' - I'm really on a trivia roll now!) And finally we're approaching Exmouth, at the mouth of the River Exe (who knew? <grin>). A few miles inland you'll find Exeter, and a little way out to the east the airport we started off from. We moved down here around the turn of the millennium, and I still keep having to pinch myself to make sure it's real. I was raised in a seaside town (Southend, in Essex), and fifty years on my inner 14 year old feels right back at home. If any of this has whetted your appetite, have a scan around the bay via Google Earth - there are some amazing views there for real and still a huge number of big old Victorian mansions (although they've mostly been turned into flats now) Thanks for indulging me!
  17. Thought I'd put up a few pix of my home ground. It's a fantastic place, and I feel very lucky to live here - some amazing beaches and coves, plus the moor, all less than an hour away (and I can walk down to my local beach in 10 mins). The weather in these pix is ASN live weather, so we got lucky on this flight, although like most bits of England it's pretty changeable most of the time. The Orbx England is generally rather attractive, but this particular area is not hugely accurate in terms of actual objects/buildings etc. I'll comment on a couple of pictures but it shouldn't be construed as criticism of the scenery - can't expect satellite level accuracy of such a relatively minor area (maybe a couple of releases down the line yet <grin>). Anyway, after taking off from Exeter, heading west over Dartmoor - Turning south towards Plymouth - Plymouth is one of those areas that is a bit generic, so I've skipped any shots of it and we're now off the coast south of the city and heading back east. Gone past Salcombe and Kingsbridge, and heading towards Start Point. In the picture below is a little cove that can be reached via a fairly interesting little track. We were there last week and it was a small plane flying over while we were there that inspired this set of pictures. Coming up a little higher, we're about to turn round Start Point, which actually has a rather attractive lighthouse in real life, and beyond it is Start Bay. Start Bay has some interesting features. One is the "lost" village of Hallsands - a fishing village that was almost washed away in a storm in the early 1900s because most of its natural shingle protection had been dredged and take away to be used in building works at Plymouth docks. Not present in Orbx, but google it if you're interested. In the middle of the bay is Slapton - the large spit you can see below. About seven miles of shingle beach, it's a beautiful place to just sit and listen to the waves, and is big enough that it never gets even remotely crowded even in the height of the summer. Up at the north end of Start Bay is the River Dart, and its two towns of Dartmouth (on the left of the river in this picture) and Kingswear (not really visible on the right). Both are absolutely stunning places. Dartmouth is the home of the Royal Navy's training college. The next bay up is my home area, Torbay, consisting of three towns, Brixham is a old fishing village on the south point of the bay, Paignton is in the middle, and Torquay is on the north end and is the bigger of them. Heading round towards Brixham - The pointy bit on the end is Berry Head, and is the true southerly end of the bay I'll stop here with this post, and put the rest up later on today. Enjoy
  18. Thought I'd try an actual flight for a change. Started in Biggin Hill, for no particular reason, and headed for Southend, home of the world's longest pleasure pier and town where I (mis)spent my childhood. Starting just before dawn one summer's day - Orff we jolly well go . . . As we come up you can just about glimpse London in the distance Heading east, crossing the M25 (orbital motorway) and with the Dartford Bridge over the Thames and the refineries down river coming into view Turning north, looking east over Kent. Somewhere down there is the rail link for the Channel Tunnel Out across the Thames, looking back at the refineries at Sheerness (I think) Looking west now, across Essex up the Thames towards London Southend Airport ahead. Thought I'd try an actual landing for once (I normally just "esc" and exit. Or crash). Well, they tell me it is a flight simulator, even thought I mostly use it as a convenient form of tourism <grin> And here I am - clogging up the runway. (OK, I cheated a bit - I actually landed on the grass to the left of the runway, but I didn't crash and it all went quite smoothly, but hey, it's my movie and I'll edit as I like) Aircraft is the Hawker Fury from the "Hawker Heroes" package, which I rather like and bought mainly for the Typhoon and Tempest, but it turns out that the Fury is actually the most fun. I plan to try this flying lark some more and take off from here and overfly the couple of areas I've lived in on the way down to Exeter, which is the nearest I can get to Torquay (my current home). Enjoy! (I did) Andy
  19. Hi there Today I flew to Lands End (EGHC) and had to use RW34 due to 15 kts from 300°. While on final I had to avoid high trees between me and the runway. As I know this Airport from real flights, there are no trees in any of the approches. Also there are acutally almost no high trees on the whole Landsend Peninsula, due to the constant strong winds there. There are mostly some kind of bushes. I added a Screenshot from EU-England in P3D v3.1 with the marked trees, plus a Google Earth Screenshot. BTW: Lands End Airport got two concret Runways since July 2014 (see 3rd Screen shot). Maybe you could change this aswell ? :-) best regards Simon Stoll
  20. Lad`s i`ve just twisted the Commander in Chief`s arm behind her back and negotiated the quick attainment of EU England. HoooRAH.. stunning... why did i wait so long to get it, and its fantastic..(as you all know that anyway).... just a few randoms from a flight somewhere around Cambridge i think??? Thanks for watching...
  21. Hello. Just been flying through the Derwent Valley in the Lake District. There doesn't seem to be any islands on the lakes just rings around where there should be. Can anyone help or shed any light on why this is? Is there an update?
  22. Hello, I have some trouble with installation of England region in FSX. When this region is active, large green zones replace the sea around south of England. Thanks for your help.
  23. Back in 2000 (when I was 6 years old ) I went to my first air show at Waterkloof AFB in Pretoria and it turned out to be the best of them all, even to this day. A USAF B1-b had just taken-off and an RAF Tristar was parked on the apron. From the angle I was at, it looked like the undercarriage of the Lancer touched the top of the Tristar's fuselage. Being 6, this seemed like a real possibility to me. Anyway, below are some shots of the RAF Tristar. It's always great to take to the virtual skies in an aircraft from your childhood, great memories. I will soon be upgrading to the Professional version Thanks to Just Flight and ORBX
