  1. Top menu ... cameras ... Cockpit/Pilot/Co-Pilot ... then again to switch back. The usual CTRL-xx views are taken up with other (VC) close-ups.
  2. Me too ... I had all his T-28s for P3D. You won't regret it - it's one of the best, IMHO. No offence taken ... me - I hate all those [s]wanky new bizjets, so this is right up my street. I've had a couple of flights in a Tiger Moth in RL, so this is especially welcome. Thanks for all the nice comments, folks!
  3. Another absolutely *superb* contribution from Anthony Lynch. The MSFS Tiger Moth isn't just a port-over from his P3D model - it's a completely new aircraft - with all sorts of amazing, carefully thought out features. Here's NZMF to start with ... a pretty grubby day for VFR, but worth a go! Getting better ... Beautiful cockpits (front and back): Over to Gloucestershire ... TEGB ... The Golden Valley - Chalford, nr. Stroud ... my old home! That's all folks!
  4. Nick's post (as linked) is pretty comprehensive. I'd be very surprised indeed if you can't get it to work using one of his methods. Before he posted that guide, I'd already got mine working using symlinks alone - but opted in the end for the .ini rename method he mentions. None of these approaches take long and aren't *that* complicated - I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Bear in mind that these (hopefully) are only *temporary* workarounds - and that a proper solution will no doubt follow once XP12 has come out of beta and the Orbx devs can can finish the job. I've always been a great fan of Orbx Central, so letting it do the job for us has to be the best option.
  5. To be perfectly honest - I don't know!! As with many things in the sim world, there's lots of conflicting views and/or advice out there. However - as Orbx Central (in its current form) doesn't fully support XP12, I'd be more inclined to think that leaving that line out is an undesirable side-effect. Also - as regards *ordering* within the ini file - I'm not sure whether it's important in v12 or whether it does its own internal re-ordering. I've not done enough tests to know one way or another. v12 is an early release beta, so we're all learning as we go.
  6. Some great posts and shots over NZ - thanks, Iain! That AH Chipmunk certainly is a great addon too - it's one of my favourites.
  7. Just an addendum to Nick's comprehensive instructions: If you add/remove or reinstall anything via Orbx Central, your scenery_packs.ini file may remove the SCENERY_PACK *GLOBAL AIRPORTS* entry - which usually goes below all airport entries and above any Custom, Overlay or Ortho entries.
  8. Maybe in the old days ... I mean in Victorian times (when children were still being sent up chimneys) and thick, yellow smog would blanket the city!! I've always thought (with FSX, P3D and now MSFS) that the transition times around morning or evening have always been totally up the creek. Far too abrupt - and far to early (or late).
  9. Hahaha! Caught out - HOWZAT! I spent a couple of days programming the MCDU in both FBW A32NX and PMDG 737 - using the same flight plan to compare. This daft old fart got utterly confused! Nice to see I have the same livery for both!! So ... kudos not to PMDG for the excellent exterior model - but to the FBW team!!! Thanks for the comments, folks!! Adam.
  10. A quick flight from my birthplace (Leeds) to near where I ended up (Bristol) before leaving for NZ: You have to admire the way the undulating runway is modeled: MSFS lighting is so good ... Out of the haze and down the Pennines ... An uneventful (for once!!) approach and landing ... taxi to the gate: The level of detail of the PMDG 737-700 is superb! Adamski.
  11. Whereabouts? I lived in Chalford, near Stroud. Used to go gliding from Aston Down. Thanks for the nice comments, folks!
  12. Another amazing Cold War aircraft. Nothing like as elegant as the Hunter, but the Gloster Meteor has plenty of character! Back to RAF Kemble!!
