  1. This seemed to work just well.. Thanks. Dogs53
  2. OK.. thanks.. I will give it a try and let you know... But one question: . Nick asks if no one has Global Vector Installed. I do have it installed. Should I proceed anyway? Thanks Dogs53
  3. I am using P3Dv4 and have the Global Base, Trees, Vector, OpenLC Europe and OpenLC North America installed. I have flown in and out of KPSP numerous times with no issues. However, today something changed and I seem to have the issue described as airport elevation error with my runway is seemingly below the ground. I tried the Airport Elevation disable fix as described in the Global Vector Configuration Tool and KPSP now appears on the right side of the screen under the column of AEC is disabled. But no change in the vision on the runway... I am still below ground. Then I tried to enable AEC for KPSP airport and still no change. What could the issue be? As I said, I have probably flown out of KPSP over 50 times, but somehow this issue showed up on today's flights. Please let me know what you suggest as I seem to be out of ideas on how to resolve this. Thanks Dogs53
  4. Thanks... I look forward to getting the new version. But how do I get it? I have KSAN ORBX and I fly it almost daily, but when I go to FTX Central, it doesn't show an update available for KSAN. Does that mean that I already have V2? I don't see any way to check this. Please let me know. Thanks
  5. Sounds good to me, I will only open Central if I have changed my installation from the last time, or if I am changing to a different Simulator from last time. Let me know if I am misunderstanding you, and thanks.
  6. Thanks for your quick reply. I don't know what you mean about a "start" menu. When I open FTX, Cental it asks me to select a simulator, then on the left there are two groups.. FTX Global and North America. I don't see a "start" menu. I did update when requested, and it seems that I have Central Version 2.1.5988.3534
  7. I use both FSX and P3Dv2 on my computer and am wondering if I still need to start Central to select the simulator (P3D or FSX) or is this handled automatically? Also, I don't presume that I need to select an Scenery Area (Global or North American) before starting the flight, or is this handled automatically? Thanks for clarifying.
  8. Richard.. Sorry for the delay but I was out for the holidays. And yes, I do have all of the above in my Orbx Vector Folder. Thanks in advance for your help, and I look forward to the resolution of these problems. Bob
  9. Herman.. thanks for your response. I don't think that I want to disable VECTOR_CVX because of the reasons that you mentioned. And I am a virtual novice at this type of stuff, so I don't understand how I can place the exclusions as you suggest. My gut says to just deal with this and hope that ORBX issues some type of a fix. Please let me know if you think that there is something that I can do. Thanks again.
  10. Richard.. Thanks for looking into this. My Vector files (OBJ, APT, CVX, and EXX) were installed directly under the scenery areas (Africa is the last one) and just before Base files (1107 Base is the first one). But I am noticing that the VECTOR_AEC is in the third to last position under 0000 Base and before Default Scenery. This was the position that they were installed into by the installer, and I didn't move anything around. FYI, LIBS is on top, followed by GLOBAL AIRPORTS, followed by FTX_AA_KHQM, followed by FTX_AA_PDX_CITISCAPE, followed by FTX_AA_YOSEMITE, followed by the SCENERY, SVX, MESH, CUSTOM for CRM, then the same for NCA, then the same for PFJ, then the same for PFJ, then the same for PNW, then the same for SAK, then the ORBX OPEN LC for EUROPE1, NAMERICA1, and BASE. then the various scenery areas, then ORBX VECTOR Files mentioned above. Hope that this helps. Let me know if I should move something around here. And thanks again. Bob
  11. It seems to me that I had a similar problem during the installation. I don't have that file either? Could that be the cause of some of my recent problem with trees, etc? In any event, if it is needed, how should I obtain it? Thanks
  12. Thanks.. and I have no third party mesh installed.. It looks like this one can't be solved without a complete uninstall/reinstall of FTX Orbx sceneries. (and I am not sure as to how to even do that (do I just delete in scenery library? Please advise) or if I am up to that task).. But somehow Vector causes this problem to worsen because when I "un-tick" vector in the scenery libraries, it goes away. Hopefully ORBX can resolve this in future updates or postings.
  13. It took me several postings to get them.. but look above. Thanks
  14. Again, I want to thank you for the help. First -- Unckecking "Frozen Water" had no effect. And FTX_VECTOR_EXX in unchecked. And I have no NA Freeware airports anywhere near the ones in question. (in fact, I don't think I have any) I did take screenshots of KHAX, (I am not having this problem at KAYX or at KAHN) but I cannot figure out how to attached them here, so unless I have an email address, I don't know how to send them to you. But this is definitely a VECTOR problem, because if I uncheck all of the Vector Files in the scenery library, then the problem disappears. Hopefully ORBX resolves this soon as this issue is being reported on other forums also. Thanks
  15. OK.. I just updated the library, and no improvement.. The order in my Scenery Library i: s#1. FTXAA_ORBXLIBS. 2 FTX_AA_GLOBAL AIRPORTS 3 FTX_AA_KHQM. 4 FTX__KPDX-CITYSCAPE, 5 FTX-AA-YOSEMITE, 6 FTX_NA-CRM05-SCENERY, 7 FTX-NA-CRM06-CVX, 8 FTX_NA_CRMO7_MESH, 9 FTX-NA_CRM08_CUSTOM, etc repeating with each scenery area, then followed by the OPEN LC FILES for Europe1, NAmerica1 and then Base. So, the order appears correct to me. Do you agree? And if so, please advise how to uninstall the existing ones to reinstall. Thanks again
  16. Thanks, I do appreciate your response. However, the regions that I have do not affect the areas that I am having problems with. I will download and install the latest Scenery Library tomorrow and then check the order in the scenery library as you suggest. But if I have to go the route of reinstalling the regions, how do I uninstall the ones that I have previously installed as Control Panel in Windows doesn't list these as programs to Uninstall? Again, I do appreciate your help.
  17. I have also noticed trees on the Runway at KHAX (N35 44.68 and W95 24.53) and unclicking the ORBXVector EXX file in the scenery library does not resolve this issue at KHAX. So now, I have noticed trees on RWs and KHAX and KNFJ and this has been occurring since installing Vector 1.2 Could someone please advise how to resolve this as it is quite annoying. Thanks Bob
  18. Thanks.. and notice the water next to the RWs at KDKX... I think that Vector is great in many ways, but needs a lot of "fixes"
  19. I am not sure, but I might have solved this temporarily by unclicking Vector_EXX in the Scenery Library.. but I don't know the downside to doing this and would like to hear from someone from ORBX about this issue and what the downside here is... and do they plan on resolving this in an upcoming update?
  20. Thanks, but I only did this after I noticed the problem with the basic Vector 1.2. I purchased, downloaded, and installed 1.2, And then noticed the problem. And it was only after I discovered the problem that I tried the 1.5 and 1.2 updates. Also I tried adding the airport KNFJ to the Vector Config tool with the following: For those having elevation issues with Vector 1.15 and on and if the airport you're having issues with isn't in the list for manually dissabling it; Go to your FSX folder and then to the ORBX folder and then to the VECTOR folder; go to the folder VECTOR_APT and open the "scenery" folder, you will see a list of all airports in FSX, go to the airport wich you want to change and copy that file ( for example; ABP_LSZH.bgl ), then go to the folder VECTOR_AEC and open the "scenery" folder and paste the ABP_ file there, now change the name from ABP_ into AEC_ and close everything. Go to your FTX config tool and open AEC tool, now your airport will be in the list where you can manually disable it and it works. This answer was already hear on page 5, next time check the forum a little better before asking questions. and then still no positive results after disabling and re-enabling it. I think that it is somehow a problem with the V1.2 being sold, and look forward to solving it. Thanks
  21. Sure, sorry for the omission.. Order #'s.. Global Vector -- FSS0333253 Global Base -- FSS0268308 So Alaska -- FSS0282050 Cont Rockies -- FSS0276727 No Cal -- FSS0273768 Please let me know if you need any more information. I look forward to your help on this. Bob
  22. I downloaded and installed Vector today from the Flightsim store. Things seemed fine at many airports, yet I discovered two issues at KNFJ in Florida (N30 29.38 and W86 56.98). There were trees on the Runway, and a huge canyon in the ground just east and north of the runway. I thought that there might be updates to help, so I downloaded and installed updates 1.15 and 1.2.. and still trees on Runway. And I tried setting FTX Central in a possible configurations, and still a problem. Could you tell me how to resolve? Thanks Bob
