  1. Oh my! Prepare for internet meltdown on the 30th then! Looking great though, has a minimum spec been posted of what we'll need to run it?
  2. Great work everyone, there's no 'thumbs up' emoticon to use but if there was I'd have used it several times! Just installed a couple of freeware airports as well as the library update and it was all trouble free and nice and quick too. I did encounter the "you do not have access to this build" message but it only took me a few seconds to find the answer Simon
  3. KCEC sounds like it needs investigating, that this afternoon's flight sorted then Simon
  4. It's not just the airport you're getting, there's lots of the surrounding area that's been modelled too: https://www.fullterrain.com/product/pavd And it is Orbx quality, $40 is a steal! It's roughly £23 GBP so that seems the going rate for a high quality payware airport, Simon
  5. No need for anything else? Don't forget all of the lovely airports that go very well with PNW Welcome to Orbx world Cthudak, you live in a very scenic part of the world by the way! Enjoy PNW, Simon
  6. Sounds good Reg, downloading now! Simon
  7. I think the guys from REX are working on some HD airport building textures, there's some info on D'Andre's news site, Regards, Simon
  8. Another old-schooler here, I've always had a great experience with FSS so I share your concerns. I'm also a bit wary about having to rely on a Steam-type interface for downloading. My home broadband service is, on a good day, usually running at about 4Mbps. It's usually ok for downloading airports but for larger areas forget it. Luckily I'm an IT bod and have a superquick uplink at work so at the moment accessing larger files isn't a problem. Will we still be able to download the files required from another computer without having FTX Central installed on it? Simon
  9. Well that's a strange one! For what it's worth I installed Stewart last night and it looks fine. I'd also say that it's probably worth looking at your graphics drivers. What flavour of graphics card do you have? nVidia or ATI? If you're running nVidia hardware do you use NVI? Simon
  10. Another simmer here in need of a chair upgrade, it's only a matter of time before the duct tape and string have to come out! Simon
  11. Another confirmation here as I was having the same issues, Regards, Simon
  12. That file swap did the trick! Many thanks again Tim, hopefully this will get fixed in the next libraries update, Simon
  13. Many thanks Timmy74, that exactly the issues I'm having. I'll try that fix later, Thanks again, Simon
  14. Hi All, I've recently installed 65S Bonners Ferry as part of the latest round of P3Dv3 upgraded aiports, unfortunately this one doesn't seem to have gone well! The other airport installers were fine and I've also made sure that I have the latest libraries installed. Has anyone any ideas as to why this airport install should have ended up like this? Regards, Simon
  15. A work colleague of mine sent me this: http://www.content-delivery.co.uk/aviation/airfields/ Some nice aerial views if you're interested in that sort of thing, Simon
