  1. Tigermoth I found the Endeavour - this screenshot should help you locate it.
  2. Hi Frank - I found the Endeavour so everything seems to be fine. Sorry for the confusion!
  3. Hi Frank - yes that is correct although I can’t see the Endeavour sailing ship - is that supposed to be included with the package?
  4. I have installed the Sydney Cityscape scenery but am unsure if everything has installed as it should. Your promo video shows POI markers for the Bark Endeavour, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Crown Sydney, Anzac Bridge and Sydney Tower. When I fly around the area there is no sign of the sailing ship and the only POI marker I see is for the opera house. I have tried uninstalling and installing again and have deleted the rolling cache in MSFS but this made no difference. The scenery is in the community folder and appears to have the same folder structure as advised in the thread “Sydney City scape half working?” I think this may be related to the issue under discussion in the “Sydney City scape half working?” thread but have started a new topic to avoid confusion. Cheers Shaun
  5. Hi Jon thanks for getting back to me. I can now see FS2020 but I did need to restart my computer before it showed. Anyway my problem is now resolved.
  6. I have installed FS2020 and run it. I now would like to purchase some of the new addons for it. When I load Orbx Central I do not see the new simulator. Any idea how I can get it to show?
  7. I'm not seeing them either and I have verified the Library and TE files. All I see are a few generic autogen building.
  8. I have tried a few of the x-plane Vulcan betas and most recently beta 6. Beta 6 will not run using the Vulcan API on my computer which is not many months old, has plenty of RAM and a GTX2080Ti graphics card. That's not a problem at the moment as I am getting good results with the non-beta version. I'm sure whatever the Vulcan issue is will be sorted out in due course. Its odd that some people can run it and others cant (I'm not the only one who has experienced this).
  9. Hi Nick - thanks for the tip I'm happy to say its fixed the problem Regards, Shaun
  10. I have installed some of my scenery for P3D v5 in a library. When I start P3D I am asked whether to enable newly installed products. However, for some of them I am prompted 4 to enable them each time I start P3D – these are: · openLC Afrira · openLC Africa mesh and Photoreal · Lilydale airport · Hervey Bay airport. I have other products in my library and after the initial activation I have not been prompted again. Is there anything I can do to prevent the above mentioned products from requiring repeated activations?
  11. With P3d v 4 I noticed a significantly clearer view when using VR after upgrading my GPU from a GTX 980 to a 1080Ti i.e. textures were less often blurred although the average framerate was only slightly better.
  12. I have AF 2, X-plane and P3D v4.2 so I am in a position to compare them. I also have Orbx Meigs Field for each of these sims and have done some experiments flying a C172 around each one. In my opinion AF2 looks much better than the others and runs at a consistently higher frame rate. P3D runs very well and on my computer is very smooth. The scenery looks good in X-plane but looks like it is rendered at a lower resolution. The later may be due to my x-plane settings. I should point out that I fly using VR so the situation with a normal monitor may be different. in terms of flight realism I find P3D to be the most realistic (using the A2A C172). I deliberately chose to use a C172 as I have several hundred hours experience flying the real thing and know how they feel and handle. I did not find the x-plane version to be convincing at all (using the default 172 that comes with x-plane 11). The default AF2 172 in my opinion falls somewhere between the 2. Remember - my flights were all in a VR environment and that the visual experience with a monitor may be different.
