  1. The scenery after buying FTX Global and Open Lc is only good around the airport where I start. When I am doing a flight and I go to another places the scenery looks worse than default, It looks like it doesnt load. I have fsx steam.
  2. Hello, I just got a new pc and installed my addons including FTX global. I read in the manual the recommended settings. I also have Scotland Orbx, and I’ve noticed my pc runs quite slow when initially loading the flight. I’m wondering if I could reduce the fsx settings a bit, or would this cause strange artifacting and problems. I’m reluctant to stray too far from the recommended FTX global settings. If someone could advise me if I could get away with reducing the load on my pc a bit without getting weird imagery problems etc. My pc is quite capable , 8GB ram , 4Hz etc. Any help is much appreciated thankyou
  3. Picking up pretty much where I left off, we're prepping for an early morning departure from Roberts International (GLRB), Liberia to Gran Canaria (GCLP) in the Canaries. This is leg 24 of 50. Just about in Europe and halfway, so that's encouraging. Takes a long time to complete a 'round the world at about 185 kts! Weather was good for the departure, but a bit bumpy over the desert. The sun comes up fast here! Over the Conakry, Guinea Out over the plains of western Senegal Desert of southern Morocco. Very hazy. Cleared up over the coast The island's in sight On approach into GCLP Landing wasn't bad. Taxing back to the terminal, and parked up. Hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for taking the time.
  4. Hi all, Very very close to release with this one now here are a few shots of the dynamic lighting that P3Dv4 users will be able to enjoy with this scenery. Cheers, Misha
  5. Hello All! I made the leap to 64-bit a few months back, but have really procrastinated on installing all my mods. I found no issues installing Vector, North America, and Europe. However not much luck with FTX Trees. Albeit, trees was the only add-on I purchased well before any other Orbx product and had actually purchased it through www.flightsimstore.com. When installing it doesn't list Prepar3d V4 as an option for my simulator (neither v3, since i uninstalled it now). Additionally, I notice some patches of black spots around the scenery in v4 when flying anywhere the scenery applies (North America/Europe). It typically happens on take-off and approach that these segments of the scenery appear empty. Let me know if someone can help or direct me somewhere I missed. Many Thanks, Mass
  6. Good evening Gentlemen, Since all of the OpenLC demos are not available for P3D V4 yet, I wanted to ask if this has any special meaning. Are they going to be updated too, or don't you have planned to do so? I'm just asking because I thought that this would be based on the same "code stuff" like the payware versions like openLC Europe or so, what would have made it possible to update them too. Or am I wrong about this? Sorry, if such questions have been answered already, but I couldn't find an already existing topic. Best regards, Alex
  7. on my helipad next to my house in Andras Field
  8. Hello! Just thought I'd report this little anomaly I discovered along the coastline of the island of St.Lucia in the Caribbean. I have everything setup correctly with global+vector+openlcna latest versions and no interfering sceneries. Cheers!/Andreas
  9. Hi All, Sorry about this one taking a bit longer, we ran into quite a few problems in the final stretch, but they've all been rectified now This should be entering RTM testing from tomorrow! We've also added a few neat animations into the scenery, including the Dubrovnik cable car after a certain person as FScon kept telling me that I had to include it Please enjoy these new previews, and look forward to more soon from Emmsie and other screenie artists once they get their hands on it! Cheers, Rasha and Misha
  10. I haven't posted anything in a while but the landclass looks great so far so I thought Id put up some pics. I started at KMTN and went KIPT and then to KJST. Today I teletransported to Smyrna (outside Nashville) and flew to KMEM and onto KLIT. Theres a lot of good textures in there. The early shots are near KIPT and later shots from over Arkansas.
  11. Hello everyone, I am very pleased to introduce this collaboration project between Rasha Tucakov and myself, and the first major mainland Eastern European Orbx airport for FTX Global Dubrovnik is a spectacular location on Croatia's famous Adriatic coast, and a popular summer tourist destination. Boasting a very large number of resorts, as well as its beautifully mountain lined coast and its famous walled city, it's not surprising that the location was visited by over 2 million people in 2015. The airport is well equipped to handle aircraft up to the size of a 757, and is equally suitable for general aviation ops. It serves up to 39 airlines during the summer months, so can get quite busy! The approach from the west is one of the most scenic approaches you'll come across, flying past the old city and passing the mountains on short final. This package includes an amazingly modelled rendition of LDDU airport by Rasha and an extensive detailed surrounding area by yours truly. This is Rasha's debut project, so please join me in congratulating him for such a fine achievement! COVERAGE MAP: FEATURES: - Over 100sq km of photoreal coverage in 60cm resolution - Unique multi-elevation airport model! - Suitable for airliner operations - New terminal currently under construction modelled - FULL Dubrovnik cityscape included! - Advanced AO baking techniques for realistic shadowing - Custom vegetation at airport - Large area surrounding the photoreal has been given custom landclass and vector roads and shorelines for the best experience - Only FTX Global required! As always, we really hope you enjoy these previews P3D shots: FSX shots: Cheers, Misha and Rasha
  12. Coming down across northern France again, heading for the channel one fine evening. I know I'm probably in the minority among aviation folk but I always much preferred this to the Vulcan. I always felt this was a bit more elegant, whereas the Vulcan was more brutish (not intending to start an argument or anything, just wanted to give this beast its moment in the limelight) Thanks for looking
  13. Never been to Cuba so thought I'd take a look. Dusk, summer, and please excuse the change of livery half way through
  14. Can't remember who, but somebody posted a shot or two over Reykjavik a week or so back and it inspired me. I hadn't realised how good the FTX Global scenery was for this location - it's really excellent. I dare say with my usual low attention span I'll probably move on again soon, but for now it's great fun. Here's a few more, starting with the Wilga (great little plane) - One in the big old Antonov - and a few in the SU-30 to finish - I've also loaded up some freeware that goes by the name ALTITUDE 2K, which is an AI floating airport. Bit basic looking, but it comes with a flight path and schedule to circumnavigate Iceland at an altitude of 2000 ft (hence the name). Supposedly land-on-able (it's basically an AI aircraft carrier sitting a bit high in the water) but first you have to find it on its flight path! If I ever manage to do it, I'll grab some shots <grin>
  15. I just installed FTX Global Base Pack and now my FSX will not load at all. I uninstalled FTX Global and my FSX loads fine. I did make the mistake of installing KPSP before FTX Global and I can't find KPSP anywhere on my hardrive to un-install. However, FTX is recognizing it as installed. So, I don't know if these are separate issues, or somehow just one. Thanks!
  16. Okay, so vast improvements all around with 1.15, thank you! Just wanted to continue to document my KLAS anomaly, which I'm pretty sure I understand (flat FSX airport, sloping real-world terrain): This is FTXVector 115, FTX Global, FSGlobal2010 Mesh with AEC for KLAS ENABLED: This is FTXVector 115, FTX Global, FSGlobal2010 Mesh with AEC for KLAS DISABLED: You'll note the "why is this airport in our neighborhood!" Wall of Doom is significantly muted with AEC disabled for this airport, but still there. This is because McCarran is a sloped airport, and FSX needs airports flat, and I don't believe anyone has (or can?) change the latter fact. Can just finesse the mesh data in the area. Pilot's goes for accuracy, so I prefer that. I _think_ I've read on their site that they have some sort of flattening tool, which is not compatible with ORBX stuff yet, but MIGHT be something they can provide us down the line. Lower priority, IMHO, than continuing to update the database with the changes needed to improve matching all over the world, over time. Not going to be an instantaneously complete process, and we will continue to need to be patient. Meanwhile, enjoy what is there and don't get too hung up on the ongoing evolution! I'm sorely tempted to get FSDreamTeam's KLAS, but will hold off for now, it's been out for five years and maybe there's an update around the corner..... Steve
  17. Hi, First, thanks for all the wonderful work for all these add-on airports! They are attracting people like me out of our ruts, to explore the rest of the fantastic FTXGlobal world. I noticed that if I disable AEC for KONM with the FTXVector Configurator Tool, it is no longer sunken, but now on a somewhat extremely elevated plateau. I will mention this in the FTXVECTOR forum, as I suspect the ultimate solution has to come from there? But just mentioning it in case it's helpful. I've tried using both FTXCentral set to North America and to FTXGlobal, same effect. It's kind of a New Mexico Lukla at this point, still beautifully done, and fun to fly around! Thanks, Steve
  18. Just a brief celebration of the Duke B60V2 over FTX Global scenery on a wintery morning in upstate NY, on a flight from LaGuardia to Albany: The problem with a cruise ship in winter, parked out of Manhattan: A beautiful morning at 4,100 ft over the Hudson River: FTX Global VECTOR and FSGlobal 2010 doing an excellent job of mapping the local highway north (I-87), even without the upcoming LC for NA ORBX is busy developing: And finally, a realistic-looking and feeling landing at an airport that isn't even customized ORBX airport or region scenery: There are some issues to be resolved with FTX Global Vector and FS Global 2010, but look on the bright side: when the issues aren't present, the results are simply spectacular. Steve
  19. Hello Everyone! Learning to getting myself acquainted with the magnificent PMDG777 currently and well... I am still anything but certain about all the "flows" in detail and many features still need to be unveiled - but at least i am on my way By the way: I will be "out of town" for a few days in "real life" soon and so i also thought it to be a good idea to give this relatively new bird in my hangar another testrun today before leaving. This specific flight was based on a real world flight which is carried out by ANA and built upon information available from Flightaware. No real detailed fuelplanning was involved yet and i am also not familiar with the flightplanning tool PFPX yet either - so this is also anything but perfect here - but, let's keep things pragmatic: This is still a sim I hope You enjoy these shots nevertheless! Cheers, Christoph Besides the great FTXGlobal textures and the PMDG777, i also used a superb freeware package for landclass and vectordata for South Korea and Japan, which are available here http://nazo.secret.jp/fsx/index.html ... as well as the FSGlobal 2010 mesh (Can't wait for the soon available surely fantastic FTXVector and OpenLC landclass add ons!) REX clouds, sun and water textures, a nice freeware-skytextures-set including a "sun flare effect" which are available somewhere at the AVSIM library (sorry i do not have the exact file name at hand currently), the OPUS weather engine and SweetFX have been in use here too - and all that was put together then under DX10, which kept me super safe from OOM's . So: Ready for departure! On gate 35 (if i recall correctly) at Seoul Gimpo Airport and checking out the "Before Taxi" checklist ... geting ready for taking off at RW14L ... and here we go ... Seoul below us ... ... climbing up to our cruise altitude of FL400 - certainly time to run through the long overdue after take off checklist now! ... ... some time later the sky is already noticeable brighter as the time of day moves on. The moon is still up with the sun and all the stations visible at the Navigation Display let Japan become somehow recognizeable ... prior to descending now entering some wind data into the FMC and having a first quick look at the descend checklist (i know, too early, but - again: I am just on my way of learning to fly this great plane ) ... Japan's iconic Fuji in the distance ... on ILS into RW34L by now - and flying into some unfriendly, but typical autumn weather - and - with Haneda Airport becomming visible through the clouds ... ... ... and here we are Welcome to Tokyo!
  20. Hello Everyone! Some first impressions from Japan - It is a great to joy to finally being able to fly there in the sim now due to FTX Global! I have been to the city of Sendai a few years back and also before the devasting earthquakes in 2011 in real life. I therefore decided to undertake a flight as it is also provided by ANA in the „real world“. I intended to head from Osaka Itami (RJOO) to Sendai (RJSS), but … for whatever reason – and i really don’t know why exactly – i was experiencing a power blackout in my PC-room while still in flight. Well: So much about my maiden flight in Japan in the sim. As You can imagine i was pretty much upset, but thought to make the best out of the situation afterwards. I therefore loaded some of the shots i took while still in flight and also decided to edit them a bit. I usually don’t do this, but as the flight ended up earlier as intended anyways, i was in the mood to do so. … I will redo this flight for sure again, but for now: Everyone, please enjoy, Christoph One from the cockpit while still on climb … Mount Fuji in the distance … and two „wider views“: One close at Nagoya … and one from somewhere further up to the north towards the Tohoku region… Japan looks really fantastic with FTXGlobal – and even better if it is being used together with the superb freeware LandClass as provided here: http://nazo.secret.jp/fsx/index.html … now imagine how fantastic all of it will look like once OpenLC will be around! By the way – also in use here: The FS Global 2010 mesh
  21. Hello Everyone! ... well then: Almost all the reinstall and new install procedures are done and so: Time to go flying again! I am very much impressed by the way how Central and Northern Europe now appeare with all the new FTXGlobal textures in use. They really add lots of realism regarding diversity, shapes and colourtones. ORBX: You did a great job here! And so far i had encountered no issues with 3rd party scenery add-ons! Reasons enough so to take a flight from my local area Vienna to the city of Berlin and trying to „redo“ a flight in the sim from „real life“ when i was a passanger flying with Air Berlin. One thing in advance: The plane i was flying with in „the real world“ was an Airbus from Air Berlin/Niki actually, but as Air Berlin uses the 737-8 frequently for its flights between LOWW and EDDT and as i just always enjoy flying the NGX so very much and do not own any 3rd party Airbus add-ons for FSX yet, i thought it okay to redo the flight with the NGX in the sim. Further add-ons in use here were as follows: The fantastic FlyTampa version of Vienna’s International Airport in Schwechat, LOWW UTX Europe (with some disabled features though) Aerosoft’s also very nicely modelled Berlin Tegel international Airport, EDDT REX Textures and OPUS REX Natural ENB in use Everyone, please enjoy! Cheers, Christoph P.S.: The flightroute was: LOWW - LANUX UL858 RISUK UT204 RODUX T204 NUKRO - EDDT The time of departure in the sim was set to the early morning, just around 6AM Central European summer time (The real flight took place later on actually) Taking off from RW29 via the LANUX 2C SID which will actually get us pretty close along the southern edges of Vienna, but at first … the refinery at Schwechat. Sure anything but beautiful, but also sure one of the most remarkable „landmarks“ close to the airport … and now: The „real thing“ … an accumulation of rails just next to Vienna’s „Zentralfriedhof“ (Central Cemetery) ... and again all that „from within reality“ … As You can see: FlyTampa’s LOWW blends almost perfectly with the FTXGlobal textures here. Clearly visible here as well in the back: The Danube while it crosses Vienna approx. 1900 kilometers before reaching its delta and flowing into the Black Sea where it will have crossed ten countries in total by then ... looks like the FSX-rendition of „Schloss Schönbrunn“ (Schönbrunn Palace) here ... one of Vienna's main touristic hot spots for sure! ... and here it is "for real" ... leaving Vienna behind us now ... and just a little while later we have already crossed the border towards the Czech Republic near Znojmo and continue heading north. Two shots from the sim and one from reality … and now some views from Berlin on arrival into EDDT’s RW08 and as it appeared in the sim. Quite well visible here: Berlin’s no longer in use Tempelhof airport, which is very nicely modelled in the FSX+Acceleration package by default. It also fits perfectly into the surrounding FTXGlobal urban textures environment here. The great thing is, that in reality a very large part of this former airport area with all its old run- and taxiways is open to public nowadays and lots of people use it for jogging, cycling, kite flying or kite skating - and much more, or to just hang out a bit and relax. On my "real world flight" i did not see this particular area of Berlin, so i can't show You any "rael world" photos from it inparticular here … there are lots of rivers and lakes in and around Berlin and they surely add a lot of nice and unique atmosphere to this – in my opinion – absolutely fantastic, vivid and pulsating city ... two window views while on final in the sim … and one from reality … on glideslope just prior to disengaging the autopilot and landing manually. In the background by the way, sadly just barely visible, but in fact there: The iconic TV tower at Berlin’s Alexanderplatz and its closer surroundings … alright then: Welcome to Berlin!
  22. Just a couple of quick shots of an evening flight from Gardermon Airstation to Rygge Airstation in Norway, in the Russian Antonov. We are scouting the terrain for an imminent invasion of agriculturalists. On the way between these airports, Oslo looks beautiful at 8pm in August. Nothing else used here other than FTX Global and REX Essential+Overdrive:
