  1. Thanks, these settings work good on my system. I do have a vram question. I was wondering which slider affects vram most. With SP1 my vram performance has improved in Seattle but still higher than I would like 3.9-4.2 instead of 5 and greater. Just wanted to ask which slider or sliders I should temp reduce for higher vram areas. Thanks for everyone's help. Thanks, Mike
  2. I am having elevation issues at HEBF airport. I reinstalled LC into P3D4 directory, and disabled LC Mesh but problem persists. Thanks for the help. Mike
  3. If XP11 has Seattle Helipads you should be able to start and land there. Also look at the Gateway Scenery website for 3D helipads that might not be included in the simulator. Hope this helps, Mike
  4. I was able to solve my issue. I uninstalled Australia V2 and removed all remaining folders and scenery library entries from P3D and downloaded and installed again. No black textures. Also Claudio, if using P3D, set the default screen grab type to jpg to have smaller image sizes. Mike
  5. I am at a loss, still having this issue. Thanks for the help so far. Mike
  6. Still having this issue, forcing migration again.
  7. I think I might have found the issue. On my upgraded system, Windows installed on my new SSD but old windows drive still had app data/orbx. When I downloaded/installed FTX Central, desktop shortcut pointed to old location instead of new app data location. Deleted old OS drive Orbx folder, created shortcut for correct location, verified install and sure enough it was missing some files. Fingers crossed, I am going to start a flight in Australia. Will report back. Thanks, Mike
  8. Thanks Nick, I tried that and I still have this issue. If I fly in North America with Global Base and LC, no issues. I also tried Force Migration but that also did not help. Mike
  9. I just recently upgraded my computer and installed P3D 4.5 full and am in the process of reinstalling my add-ons. I installed Global Base, LC NA, Trees, and the free airports. Global textures look great. The problem I am having is after installing Australia V2. I am getting black splotches/texturing all over the scenery. This greatly takes away from an enjoyable experience. I have tried all of the suggestions from the forum but still have these texture issues. Please help. Thanks, Mike
  10. When I was a teenager, a regional department store, would always have a yearly photo/electronics expo and dad and I would always try to attend. We were both in awe at an early version on an early apple desktop. And I have been simulating ever since. Mike
  11. I agree, since I went all in with the two simulators, P3D4 and XP11, I will install the True Earth PNW products in XP and because I have all of the regions for P3D, not duplicate. Mike
  12. Thanks for posting these. Would it be possible to move these threads to the flight plan forum and pin them at the top for quick access. Thanks, Mike
  13. Here is a link for $100 hamburger and other flyable destinations. Start at the airport of your choosing, select the distance and see the results. I do not think you have to join to use. http://www.adventurepilot.com/Default.aspx?tabid=36 Mike
  14. Another option is to wait until early next year to see the opinions of this new yoke and throttle quad. I own both the Saitek Cessna yoke and rudder pedals as well as the last version of the CH Yoke and right now both are sitting unused. I am currently using a brushless joystick (T1600M), I know not realistic for GA flying but it is very responsive and uses less desk space. Also I got tired of adjusting joystick assignments every time I switch controllers for different aircraft that benefit from a joystick or yoke. Multiply this by three for my three simulators, P3D, XP11 and Aerofly, so I decided for the time being to just use a joystick and my CH throttle quad. Mike
  15. Slightly off topic, does anyone know if there is a program that saves joystick configurations, optimally for P3D and XP11. I have both a Yoke/Rudder Pedal combination and a joystick. Having a yoke & joystick connected do not play nice if connected at the same time. When I disconnect the Joystick to use my yoke, I have to reset all of my buttons and possibly re calibrate which is a pain. What I would like to do is to load a saved config file for my attached configuration. Am I dreaming or does something like this exists. Thanks, Mike
  16. If you do not mind subscriptions, two recent ones for me that ad to a realistic experience are Foreflight Pro for the United States and the Navigraph FMS and charts subscriptions for the ipad tablet. Do not know if available for Android. Foreflight pro is nice because with the addition of FSXFlight app (also works with P3D) I can have a moving map sectional and charts. Xplane does not need an external app to use. It is expensive but I divide it by 12 and factor into my monthly budget. Navigraph has a free utility for both the P3D and Xplane but only has IFR maps and not sectionals. I use Foreflight when simulator flying in the United States an navigraph when flying in the rest of the world. Mike
  17. Thanks for sharing, helps when deciding which airports I need to buy. Mike
  18. Also, if you just want to know what airports and other landmarks are included with the regions, you could open the Google Earth files for each region. These are located in your Orbx documents folder after purchase of the region. Not sure if available anywhere before purchase though. Mike
  19. I like it and especially the speed, opening and moving between topics and pages. Mike
