  1. I see Avsim is riddled with troubled posts about the 737 ... yet I've had no problems with it at all. Yes - opening up the 737 has suddenly enabled thousands of beta testers and many issues have been flagged - though most of them either aren't show-stoppers or simply haven't happened to me. Considering it's a highly complex aircraft, I'm surprised how well it performs on my ancient rig (I think I said that about the P3D NGx as well)! Overall. I'm delighted with it!
  2. Thanks, Ed - that's put me out of my misery LOL! Maybe I cooked my own goose (as it were!) ... but I'm [also] thinking of instances like NZ Mesh (which I think has been brought up before). It's nowhere near apparent that Orbx underlies everything you're seeing. Anyway - back to the question ... if I were to post a GB North (Scotland) shot ... I'm guessing it would need to have an obvious POI ... something that's unique to that package <?>.
  3. This one's for Iain (!) but I'm hoping some guidance may help other entrants! With the growing number of sceneries sanctioned/distributed under the Orbx banner, it's hard to know exactly what scenery is allowed - especially if Orbx scenery (or mesh) is overlaid by add-on tiles or vegetation. A case in point: I'm considering entering a shot from my recently acquired Great Britain (North) - somewhere over Scotland, I hope. I'm not sure how much content (in terms of landscape) is provided by Orbx - or is it mainly POIs etc. <??>. I use Bijan vegetation and sometimes alternative Google tiles - are either of those acceptable? I suppose a way out of this would be to [pre] post candidates in the general screenshots area and ask your opinion - but I'm not sure adding to your workload in this way would help - though I suppose a simple yes/no is quicker than asking someone to remove (or replace) a bad entry. Thoughts? ... and TIA! Adam.
  4. Well done, @Digital896!! A tremendous shot of one of my favourite aircraft!!
  5. Aah ... right ... thanks. I install all my Orbx sceneries outside the main folder (and also use Addons Linker).
  6. I don't think you need to do this if you follow Nick's suggestions (rolling cache etc.) <??> ... but I'm intrigued by your last shot. What do you mean "main stack"?
  7. I'm afraid that you might find, if you *do* clear the rolling cache, you'll lose your good NZMF. I have version 2.5 installed - and have also tried 2.4. Neither works. I'll see if I can grab 2.1 and see if that works with SU9.
  8. Strange indeed!!! What version of Sergio's NZMF do you have running? And ... did you clear your rolling cache before (or after) the SU9 update? Does anyone know if scenery *order* (in the contents.xml file) is important for Orbx-related scenery?
  9. This has been part of my S.O.P. (Standard Operating Procedure) for MSFS for a fair while now. Make a text file and put it on your desktop as a reminder!
  10. Confirmed here. I've posted on Sergio's page on Flysim.to - asking him to wave his magic wand!! I tried every combination of with/without NZ Mesh and different addon versions. None worked - and it doesn't appear to be Orrbx Mesh related. Oddly, you'd expect the error to have occurred afte the last *World* update - and not SU9. It's a great (freeware) addon, but I'm still hoping that Orbx will re-work their P3D classic NZMF for MSFS!
  11. Do you use the scenery cache? If so, try deleting it and re-making it - then reinstall Cityscape and re-run.
  12. Mine was fine here - though all I did was delete/remake the rolling cache file. I'm pleased to see the bridge-road connections are much improved! Still not 100% perfect, but w-a-y better than they were
  13. I keep MSFS updated (fairly promptly). These are definitely post AU update - but I seem to remember the problem being there before (but I didn't flag it here as a bug at the time).
  14. For the record ... here we go!!! The road has obviously been down for a fair while, as trees have grown around it! LOL.
  15. Hi Ed - is the Sydney Harbour Bridge inlcuded in the fixes? I have a few issues with it at either end of it (roads not joining up etc.). I could post some screenshots here - unless you want me to file a bug report somewhere else
  16. A winner from the instant it was posted!! Great shot!!
  17. Late summer here in NZ, but I'm wondering if spring has "sprung" in the UK! Here's the Flying Iron MkIX Spitfire over Gloucestershire: I'd love to enter this last one in the comp, but I suspect it doesn't show quite enough Orbx (UK Central) scenery Adam.
  18. One would have thought that deleting it from Conernt Manager would automatically set the flag in content.xml to false - but not true!! Thanks for the tip!
  19. Thanks - I've already installed the update - but I'm still not sure whether it's recommended to remove the Asobo YSSY content. Would an Orbx dev care to advise? Also - what's the easiest/safest way to disable it? Just *delete it* from Content Manager? I've done that in the past for LOWI - and it just goes into the "Not Installed" section.
  20. I have Orbx/Fly Tampa's YSSY (airport) - but not Orbx Cityscape. Should I be disabling/removing Asobo's YSSY (airport)?
