  1. All, I haven't been active for quite a while due to more important family circumstances. However being back and "flying" again in Prepar3dv5.1, I noticed the following in the order of the scenery library: FTX OpenLC Scenery Global Vector OBJ Global Vector CVX FTX Open LC Scenery AFRI Global Vector EXX FSGlobal Ultimate 2020. Is this the correct order as it differs from the order described in the FTX Guide I have so far used as my reference? I did not encounter a problem so far. If this is not the correct order, could someone help me to change it into the proper one? Thanks very much Regards Hans
  2. Hello, I just installed ORBX Central. I was one of the people who complained about the new ORBX Central a few months ago and went back to FTX Central till the problems were solved. I tried again and am now very happy with ORBX Central. It works for me. Thanks for your support on the issues I encountered. Regards Hans
  3. All, Now it works! Should have read the instructions more thoroughly. It is not that difficult, ha,ha. Loading times are also faster now compared to Central 4. I noticed that in add-on in P3D there is an ORBX\scripts\buildingsHD. Is that correct or is that a leftover from ORBX Central 4? Hope the "real" Central 4 is coming soon. Anyway in the meantime I can continue to explore the flightsim world. Regards Hans
  4. All, I am back to FTX Central 3. It took a day, but it felt good, till I started P3D and noticed that FTX scenery is not in the scenery file. I am not sure it has to do with me making the wrong symbolic link. One might think that is easy to do, but not for me apparently. The amount of diskspace needed for Central 3 is 360 Gb i.s.o. 409 with Central 4. So the difference I expected is not that big. I'll continue struggling with the symbolic link. Regards Hans
  5. All, You have convinced me. I'll go back, or at least try, to FTX Central 3. A lot of extra work and no buying of ORBX products till the problem is really solved. Positive point is that with FTX Central 3 less disk space is needed. A point which I see as very important. Regards Hans
  6. Hello, That happened to me as well. When I first start REX Environment Force and the P3D there is no problem with the shaders, though. Regards Hans
  7. Hello Nick, You are the sensible one of us two. I think when something new it is better and the scenery will be even better, alas. Will there be help around the corner soon? Regards Hans
  8. All, Last report. The scenery is also incorrect. I see the result of the wrong sequence appear in the scenery. Regards Hans
  9. All, Everytime I open "scenery" in P3D, the entries that can move are placed somewhere else in the sequence. It seems that the assignment of the sequence order is very unstable. I hope this helps to find a clue of what is happening. To me this looks like a serious problem. Regards Hans
  10. All, The next update. Of the three addon scenery files I have added to P3D only one shows up. The others don't. I don't see the logic of what is happening. Regards Hans
  11. All, To give you an update of what I have done so far. I thought I'd try to add a third party addon scenery file in "Scenery" of P3D. When I did that it seemed to accept it, when trying to locate it, I could not find it. So I tried again. The remark was that it already existed!! Where would it be then? I don't see addon scenery as an insertion point anymore. This is getting frustrating. All my new airport enhancements are not being displayed. What to do next. Regards Hans
  12. All, I just installed update 4.04. Seemed ok, however when I openend P3D, all my addon scenery files are gone. They are still in the p3d directory but not in the program. So I have under scenery library: ORBX files and default files and under addon scenery only ORBX files. Strange. Do I have to install them anew? Regards Hans
  13. Hello Nick, You don't experience the messy looking scenery sequence as mentioned in other threads since yesterday, while the program is working fine? What I also noted is the increase in diskspace needed probably due to the many duplications. In my case it amounts to 409 Gb. It was much less with FTX Central 3. Regards Hans
  14. All, I have the same problem. Though I don't know whether it is a real problem. I checked the scenery at different places and everything looks fine, no signs of a wrong order of the scenery layers. What I noticed whenI opened the scenery library in P3D the sequence looks messy, there is no logic in it and it looks not at all as the layer build up as described in the ORBX Guide book; it is also impossible to move the files up and down to get to the layer sequence as shown in the ORBX Guide. However when opening the add ons in P3D, only the ORBX files which are unmovable in the scenery library, show. Also the scenery.cfg shows only addon scenery from non ORBX parties, while the add-ons.cfg shows only the ORBX files, perhaps it is not as bad as it looks, but to me it looks very illogical. Regards Hans
