I have mentioned this before, I have an AI flight plan for an aircraft to leave EGHI Southampton, most times it is placed on a vacant parking spot, but other times it is placed on a spot that is taken up by a static.

On installing the scenery I unchecked the 'Static aircraft' box plus the 'People' box on all of the Orbx scenery and then validate, but they still show up, so am I doing something wrong when installing or are these statics and people unmovable?

Hello,

there is nothing wrong with the control panel.

You would need to untick the top four boxes and close it to make the change:

If your control panel does not save the settings, uninstall the product and then reinstall it.

I did that Nick, don't know why it didn't work, it says when you exit your changes will be saved but for some reason they weren't.

 

Also I was going to ask this in the support forum but there is that many sections I wasn't sure which one, sorry mate.

 

I went back in the control pane and they are all un checked, I took a screen shot.

Typically, Orbx control panels do not work if either both versions of the files that it maniplates are

present or neither.

Both is more common and in normal use, duplicates are not created.

 

If you would rather not reinstall, then by all means open the control panel xml file, go through all

the files and delete all that have a BGL.OFF suffix.

 

Below is the content of the xml file for you to use as a reference.

Given the large number of files to check, I thought you might find it easier to use a few clicks of a mouse

and then leave FTX Central to complete the task while you do something else.

 

These are your solutions, the choice is yours.

Thanks again Nick, I came back to tell you this time it worked, don't know why it didn't before.

I like to have a lot of AI aircraft and seeing them double parked is a bit annoying, that's why I always un-check the option.

I'll know what to do next time it happens, cheers mate.
