  1. Life is like a path of untrodden snow …. be careful how you tread on it for every mark will show.
  2. I concur. Having forum access to others’ problems has proven very beneficial over the years …. often creating an awareness of potential problems, such that corrections can be expedited on installation. Access to “Frequently asked Q & A” is not as good. I consider this to be a retrograde step.
  3. Yes agreed. The "Discovery" feature is indeed "messed up", with muchly reduced potential for "discovery". Presumed a fix is in train. Cheers.
  4. I have also noticed this - used to be Honolulu Cityscape logo screen.
  5. Thanks for your efforts Smudger, much appreciated. Object Flow seems in order. I am completely baffled also. There must be some obstruse corruption in there somewhere that for whatever reason persisted through the “repairs”. As I am not too far down the track with the transfer to v5, I will bite the bullet, uninstall everything, redownload the whole thing and reinstall. Re syncing the Orbx material will be easy as I established a few libraries on another drive. Shouldn’t take too long. Cheers.
  6. I have now "repaired" all three, client, content and scenery with no change to the complete absence of moving vehicular traffic. Is this a known bug in P3D5 ...... there is only one reference to it that I can find in the forums back on 16/4, where a couple of files from P3D4 vector were inserted into P3D5 with success. I assumed (perhaps wrongly) that P3D5 Vector would achieve the same result, but it seems not, certainly in my case. Everything else in P3D5 appears to be working very well. Any further ideas welcome.
  7. Thanks for the reply Smudger. I have tried traffic settings all the way up .... still no sign of moving traffic. Maybe I should “repair” P3D5 “content” , and even “scenery” ....what do you think?
  8. Recent install of P3D5 HF2 - all went very well and I am growing to really like it, except for a complete lack of moving vehicular traffic. Have most of my Oceania sceneries installed inclusive of Ausv2, Global Base, Buildings HD Trees HD and TerraFlora v2 - have tried it with vector (all config boxes ticked and saved), and without, have verified all relevant packages and run sync a few times . I have also run "repair" for P3D5 client, and still not a single moving vehicle. I have Fly Tampa's KLAS installed which has "vehicular traffic" choices in their config, and these do in fact work ..... but nothing in any of the Orbx packages. I'm approaching wit's end, and would appreciate any ideas. I'm running an i7 7700k at 4.8, GTX 1080 Ti (11GB), Windows 10 ver 2004. Thanks, in anticipation of some sort of solution ....... cheers.
  9. I didn't think Orbx sceneries became available on Central UNTIL they were compatible
  10. Absolutely terrible news ....... we knew Frank’s health was an issue, but it seemed he was on the improve. We have lost one of our most committed enthusiasts - indeed a sorry day. Condolences to his family, and may he Rest In Peace.
  11. Always a good read Frank. My hat goes off to you ...... you are indeed a dedicated enthusiast, but give your health the highest priority - and good to hear you’re OK again. Will continue to follow your progress with renewed interest. Go well and cheers.
  12. Noted - thanks Smudger - have a good one......cheers.
  13. Thank you Smudger - much appreciated. Cheers
  14. I use P3D4.5 latest hot fix ....it all works well for me at present. Cheers.
  15. Thanks for your time here Smudger .... it appears to be at the edge of what I’m prepared to have a go at ..... when I have an afternoon free, I’ll possibly give it a shot. I can imagine the “satisfaction when it all comes together”. Cheers.
  16. Could you give us the details of how to do this Smudger, or is it too complex for us less technical (read older) simmers?
  17. Thanks for the reply Chris. Yes I understood that I would have to get a list of Airlines flying into PHNL from Wikipedia, and enter them into the Alpha India software, and I presume the list could be somewhat abbreviated, whilst at the same time being sufficient to generate an alive airport as opposed to currently almost dead. Hawaiian Air alone would generate a heap of movements. Would a comprehensive listing generate computer demands that would stretch capacity …. I have an i7 7700k oc'd to 4.8, and a GTX 1080Ti …… I suspect just the listing of a dozen airlines would generate enough traffic for my needs. It's a pretty busy airport …. I was there a couple of months back ….. we got in early from Sydney with Hawaiian, and had to sit on the taxiway for some 20 minutes waiting for our bay to become vacant. Cheers and thanks again, if just a handful of airlines will work, I'll go down that track. T.
  18. Hi Chris, I fly mainly in Oceania these days, and am pretty happy with my AI here, but I occasionally venture into US territory. One such venture was into Orbx's Honolulu, with FSDT's PHNL …. but the airport is desperately crying out for AI traffic. Would Alpha India's AI software allow for the trafficking of just a single airport ….. is it just a matter of nominating PHNL, and listing a bunch of airlines that fly there to generate the traffic and "bingo", or do all the airports they fly from have to also be entered etc etc? If it is that simple, it would seem the ideal solution (sounds too good to be true), and if it isn't, it would probably not justify the effort. Sounds good though. Your thoughts ….. cheers
  19. Thanks guys for your responses. You have given me much to chew over. Cheers
  20. Thanks for that mate .... I have what I recall were "updated" traffic files for YBSU for Qantas, AirNZ, Alliance, Jetstar and Virgin in my "Scenery World Scenery". Can't recall whether Flukey provided them, but I suspect he did, but haven't been able to track down where I got them from ... presume here somewhere. Anyhow, .... has anyone out there got traffic at Flukey's YBSU in P3D4.5 ? If so, would love to get hold of the "Traffic" files that work. Cheers
  21. Whilst on the YBSU subject, my airport does not have any traffic life ... it's completely dead. I have the updated traffic files in "Scenery World Scenery", but they don't seem to be working at all. Any thoughts? Cheers.
  22. Way too many unexplained imponderables at the moment for me to proceed. One obvious one is If FTX Central and Orbx Central cannot co-exist ..... why would you NOT want to uninstall FTX Central prior to installing Orbx Central. Certainly precise instructions on how to proceed are required, or the forums will be flooded with support requests from people who have managed to screw up their installations. It certainly does not need much of a wrong step to get things out of whack. Can one who has a hybrid setup of inside and outside installations simply uninstall FTX Central, install Orbx Central, continue flying as usual and slowly move things outside as time permits to end up with a nice ordered setup with all addons outside. I am a tad confused, as it seems are others. This all looks good, but the path to final bliss appears a bit rocky. Cheers.
  23. The birds certainly do provide a dimension. I guess if they could be returned as a control panel option, everyone would be happy. Cheers.
  24. Same here - I've knocked out the only (2) bgls I can find of mwl in OZx, but problem persists.
