  1. Hi again, I looked up the info for KGSO in Air Nav and see it has PAPI's instead of VASI's on several runways including 23L (if I remember right) . I'm attaching the revised files for KGSO with the PAPI's, they will replace the 2 KGSO files in your ORBX.FTX_GLOBAL.FTX_FTXG_AIRPORTS.Scenery folder. I have no idea how that might effect your rudder issue. Cheers, Neil ADE_FTX_FTXG_KGSO.BGL ADE_FTX_FTXG_KGSO_CVX.bgl
  2. Hi Richard, I do see KGSO in my list of FTX_FTXG_AIRPORTS. I did it for Freeware Pack 19. Anything that is part of that airport should NOT affect your rudder trim. If you want the AFCAD (you will need ADE to read it) contact me via the "messages" folder at the top of this page. Cheers, Neil
  3. Hi Griphos, Unless there is some magic that converts Airport Design Editor (ADE) designed airports to XP11 format you won't be getting the freeware airports into XP11. I and the rest of the freeware airport contributors haven't converted anything over to XP11. Cheers, Neil
  4. Hi caleb1 A region of Alaska north of SAK is in the thinking process so I am hesitant to add these as it's complicated to remove them later if that region comes about. Cheers, Neil
  5. Hi thunderstreak, I found an Air Force museum at KFFO, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base but no KFFB. Are you sure of the ICAO? Cheers, Neil Wright-Patterson Air Force Base
  6. Hi again, I'll pass on my original PAHO elevation file that is at the correct elevation of 60'. Place it in your Scenery/World/Scenery folder and have it replace the one that is there. I'm still looking to find where that elevation file came from but my guess it has something to do with the Payware PAHO airport which I don't have installed so can't check it out. Cheers, Neil ADE_FTX_SAK_PAHO_elevation_adjustment.BGL
  7. Hi guy's I'm having the same issue here. PAHO has an elevation change to 60' that for some reason is not being implemented, although it is "active" in Scenery/World/Scenery. I'll look into the reason. Cheers, Neil
  8. Hi BPL, I've noted the airports you've mentioned here. The vast majority are vector issues but I will see what I can do. Cheers, Neil
  9. Hi robertkoon, KEKN has been completed and is part of the next Pack due in April. I agree, it looks nice nestled in the hills. @PcDrummer, I've added your suggestions to my list of proposed airports. Cheers, Neil
  10. HI Troyboy, KBOI is one of the airports in the ORBX Central Rocky Mountains (CRM) region. It won't be done as freeware. @ Sabretooth, I'll add NY89 to my list of proposed freeware airports, it looks interesting. Cheers, Neil
  11. Hi Jose, There are a couple of overlapping buildings, done on purpose to match as closely as possible, using standard ORBXLibs objects, what that building looks like on Google Earth. Also, I will stay with FSX default terminal buildings when there is nothing like it among our ORBXLibs objects. Freeware airports allow the accurate recreating of many airports, using ORBXLibs objects, as an alternate to payware airports that often take many months each to do and are therefore few in number. Cheers, Neil
  12. Hi Carlosqr, If you have SCA installed you may need to disable the KLAS elevation adjustment "ADE_FTX_SCA_KLAS_elevation_adjustment" in Scenery/World/Scenery. Just add an " .off" to the end of the file name. There is also a Vector AEC correction that could be disabled, I'm not sure from what you said if you did this. Cheers, Neil
  13. Hi all you old farts, I'll turn 80 in August and have a myriad of issues but I'd like to think I'm still useful to ORBX. Revising airports is what keeps me from going nuts. Nice to see I'm not the only oldster around here. Cheers, Neil
  14. Hi again, Update to 8A1 complete and I'm sending you files via email so you can check it out. Cheers, Neil
  15. Hi Holger, I'll echo the thoughts above and wish you a very happy birthday. Cheers, Neil
