  1. IN SPITE OF, OR BECAUSE OF MYSELF I have gone to MSFS. NEARLY 82 AND THE BEGINNINGS OF THE SHAKES, IT HAS SUDDENLY BECOME EASIER to use the simpler version. I admit as an old professional Geographer I love the photogrammetry, old and coarse that it is in MSFS. But remember Glencoe, never trust a Campbell or a man with his hair parted in the middle.
  2. All complaints change; someone tells us how to fix it, or it fixes itself. I am a happy little Vegimite, Orbx Central cured itself, and all scenery is happily reloaded in v5. However I am hesitant to go the MSFS way until Orbx redoes the Gold Coast.
  3. Hi John, I am on a powered wheelchair now, but still getting around. I have had my computer done up, and it is a total flop. Foolishly uninstalled 4.5 in the hope that v5 would be better, but no joy. I suspect it is worse. Didn't know the Library had reopened, even limited, things are looking up.
  4. Dexthorn: all our political leaders in Aus are in favor of a tough approach so your list is my .list. big-time.
  5. I have found LMv5 a pain in the arse. Can't install Orbx. I'm in a race to still be here when Microsoft comes out.
  6. I tried a number of time to reinstall my Orbx products into LMv5. Each time it insists that I install Libraries and SODE, and gives me the same Cannot Verify one File message. And from there it will not install my products. Please can you help.
  7. Jack, glad you joined in. The NGXu can be flown like the old version, but there are dozens of little goodies to explore that really change the face of the aircraft...including Pushback.
  8. Frisco to Honolulu, with lots of ETOPS information, use of the Auto Cruise etc. Yet the NGXu is still basically the original PMDG with simple loading if you want....but the new EFB will be a whole new experience if I can master it.
  9. Thanks, blokes, for your kind thoughts.
  10. Ticker reminding me to take care, but love the stream of shots from you others. On approach to KSFO, R10L, 4.5 and the new NGXu. Certainly not a salubrious suburb under the flight path.
  11. I know that Edinburgh cannot take the Boeing 777, but it obviously can handle the A350.
  12. For me, over 80+yrs old, I find SODE pretty unworkable so I have long since uninstalled it. How can I get default jetways to work at Edinburgh, which is a fine scenery. However I don't want to go back to UK2000, which by the way is uninstalled to avoid conflict.
  13. Ah Stillwater, very nice ironic twist.
