  1. True Earth Northern California is great except many small airports have runways added where they are now. Example: a big fancy runway next to the real one on a crop duster airport. In some cases a mountain runway has trees growing in the middle of the runway, which you can go right through. I like to fly back country small airports and a lot of them are wrong. I'm not sure if I installed something wrong or if Xplane default runways are showing up also. A request for support with a product that does not work should be placed into the X Plane 11 Support forum.
  2. Please submit a fix for the San Francisco & Oakland Bay Bridges. They are horrible. Mister X has a great Bay Bridge model, maybe you can borrow it from him? But really, this is below Orbx standards. Even Minecraft renders a better Bay Bridge.
  3. Hi. I have tried 5 times to install the Califonia scenery on my computer, but unfortunately the installation is half done each time. Please let me know how I can solve this problem. I enclose the photo of my screen on which the installation hangs. Sincerely yours. Farhad
  4. Our most ambitious project to date sees us take the next step in bringing more of the X-Plane world to life with our TrueEarth range of products. TrueEarth US Northern California is the result of years of research and development as well as countless hours of crafting together one of the most stunning and diverse regions in North America. Take off from across the sprawling region and explore to your heart’s content with over 212,000 square kilometers of orthoimagery and accurately placed autogen. The wide-range of landscapes, detailed mountains and stunning coastlines will redefine
  5. I bought Northern California, and followed the instruction to install orbx central. When I run Xplane 11 and fly over Bay area, no true earth at all. My library contains only 1.3GB. How can I download 200GB of Northern California and run it?
  6. Hello all, I've just taken advantage of the last few days of the 37% off sale to purchase a few more terrain regions and airports. All seems good, especially KJAC, and my SSD is now feeling rather overfed! However, I do have an issue with the navdata for the Northern California region. Specifically, installing the region seems to have added an huge number of spurious inner, middle, outer and back course markers. To illustrate, here's a 'before' image: the FSX map of the San Francisco Bay area with recently updated ILS data (it looks much the same with default FSX navdata)... An
  7. When I first installed global base, I was blown away by how realistic the SFO area was(I'm from Millbrae, the adjacent city), and the terrain and graphic details were accurate enough that I was actually able to locate my old High School on the 01R approach path and land on the sloped athletic track! So when I upgraded with FTX NA Northern California, I was very excited to see how my hometown was represented. Well, I was let down. While the scenery is very generally impressive, and San Francisco itself, miles off from the SFO airport, is very accurate, the "in between" SFO and San F
  8. First post here! Snapped these on my flight from KEKA to KMFR in the A2A Comanche 250:
  9. Decided to record a short circuit out of John Wayne, down around Newport Beach California and back.. Kept my P3D settings modest for smooth video recording purposes.. I'm a stickler for video quality.. IMO... If you're going to upload a video, it should be the best possible quality at the expense of a longer upload and processing time.. If you're gonna show off scenery.. SHOW IT OFF! But... That's just my own OCD. Enjoy folks.. P3D v4 - Orbx Southern California - 2560x1440@60fps
  10. Hi, Is it possible to have NA AI Traffic in the Northern California traffic using the AI Traffic North America General Aviation as for the Southern California scenery? I ask because I flew from FTX KAVX (SCA) to KHAF (NCA) and as I crossed the SCA-NCA Border all my traffic disappeared with no GA traffic at all. Subsequently I had to go into the NA Traffic control panel and enable the FSX Default Traffic tick box, to get any traffic in NCA. I am using FSX Acceleration sim. I apologise if this has been posted in the wrong forum or I am duplicating this reques
  11. A couple of pals and I near flew north from Carlsbad (KCRQ) to Santa Paula and we got this picture near Newport Beach. (Our real-life SNJ was reproduced as a skin for the A2A T-6 in amazing detail by crazac. Download the texture here. The weathered interior is true art, and the exterior has every detail right down to nicks in the prop paint.) If you take her flying be nice, that my wife in the back seat. Planning a vacation in northern California I remembered my Dad's adage to never buy (or rent) a house until you've seen the area from the air. So I borrowed a DC-3 an
  12. The Wrigley family, of chewing gum fame, operated a lovely C-47 for many years. I was lucky enough to have the (virtual) job of flying it around the West Coast.

  14. I've installed Northern California FTX and then KTVL Airport. This was my last ORBX install.....have installed several other FTX global sceneries without any issues, and am now experiencing app crash every time I locate any airplane to KTVL. Detail is attached. My system is ASUS Z87 TUF 1150, EVGA GTX 980 Ti, 16 G Corsair DDR3 Vengence, Samsung 840 PRO SSD, Corsair 1200i Power Supply. appcrash_KTVL.docx
  15. So strange - trying to install Northern California to a fresh install of P3D with Global and Vector loaded....asking for Disk 8 - when I point it to where I have the unzipped files ....Setup cannot open the following archive file - I may have inserted the wrong disk... I am running each installation as an administrator. Not sure why - this was not an issue the first time I installed it. I just yesterday did an Windows reset....could that be part of the issue? Does someone have disk 8
  16. I see other have this problem as well. The FTX installer freezes at 80% when unwrapping. They do not seem to have received any help. I'm thinking I'd like my money back. How do I do that? paradisca1 P.S. I forgot this: Order Number: FSS0425319 Order Date: 2015-11-21
  17. Hello, I recently purchased the KBLU airport triple pack. When I try to start my flight at CA21/Limberlost Ranch, my aircraft is partially buried or not visible from an outside view. Sometimes from an ouside view I can see one wingtip protruding from the ground or no aircraft at all. (yes, the new libs 150815 are installed). I thought perhaps there was an issue with the A2A aircraft I normally fly but through trial and error I discovered the same issue with the default Cessna. Am I missing a patch or service pack? Here's my setup... Windows 7-64bit FSX boxed +Accelerator FTX Global
  18. Hi everyone, I am new to the forums. I use Prepar3d 2.5 (latest vesion). I have recently purchased FTX Base Global, FTX Vector, USA NC and KTVL. I installed as per the manuals without significant problems. The scenery looks great but I noticed large dry brown areas (Lake Tahoe). At first I thought it was due to scenery problems but then realized these were areas supposed to be covered by water. I then moved to San Francisco and noticed the same thing. At this stage I do not have any 3rd party mesh installed but plan to install FS Global Ultimate eventually. I do have REX soft clouds a
  19. Given that the Northern California area contains photoreal scenery of Yosemite (I can see it in the screenshots), what does the freeware photoreal Yosemite add to that? Is it a larger area or is there some other difference?
  20. Hi, I'm having an issue installing Northern California. I've downloaded it twice to make sure it wasn't somehow a download issue. I click the installer and put in my order #, date and serial, then the installer opens up but after clicking next it seems to finish installing in about 5 seconds which seems a little fast for an area the size of Northern CA. So, I opened FTX Central and checked the FTX Products Installed report and sure enough Northern Cali is not listed. Anti-virus is off and I've ran the installer several times with no results. Anyone?
