  1. I have just received a notification from Nvidia that an updated driver is available. However, as this is a normal occurrence before a sim update (usually the day before) I do not update the graphics driver until after the Asobo update err downdate, which for me is due tomorrow. I wait until I can decipher what they have broken before I update the graphics driver after I am satisfied who is responsible for any strange behavior. Okay okay that does include yours truly. I did have this occur to me on the odd occasion until the last driver update 526.47 and all has been sweet since. I have that many fingers and toes crossed at the moment for a trouble free (sigh) update that I am feeling quite faint from a lack of blood circulation. Kevin
  2. As John says, Microsoft store, Premium Deluxe. PC platform is more versatile and there is more aircraft and scenery available. Some scenery is dummed down for Xbox. Let the fire begin Kevin
  3. Just fantasic, it sure brought a tear to the eye. I have watched the highs and lows of the top dressing industry in New Zealand for 70+ years and it still puts a chill up the spine to see the skill of these guys. Yes and unfortunately it is a job that brings it's share of accidents. Without these guys NZ would not have the farming industry that we see today. We would also not have a great flight sim experience without Orbx & Partners. Keep up the good work. Kevin
  4. Nice shots. Yes the bar sure has been raised. The lady in the blue dress at the bar has just had her drink spiked by the guy next to her, she is on her way up for sure. You will have to purchase this first class scenery to get the facial clues. I own 100 plus Orbx & Partner sceneries and this one would be at the top of the tree. Please all show your support to encourage some more of this quality. Kevin
  5. Yes looks to be another top product. You sure have been a busy little beaver these last few months. You may have a week off after the release and then back to the grind stone Kevin
  6. Well all jokes aside Don I really do know what you are going through, but not having any real Xbox experience except for boxes with XXXX on the side I can't offer any credible suggestions it does seem odd that MSFS does see it. If you select it in the controls menu are any keys or buttons showing as programed? Kevin
  7. Hi Don, have you got an X marking the spot in the back yard where you will bury your Xbox if it still doesn't work? Kevin
  8. Hi Don, I don't have an Xbox controller but I see that you don't say if you can see it listed in the MSFS controller settings. If it doesn't show there then I can't suggest anything, but if it shows in the list of controllers then MSFS might have thought that you have nothing better to do and nuked all the settings for it. Do hope you get to the bottom of this. Kevin
  9. Hi Marcus, Just goes to prove that my "investment" in these airports when they were first released was a smart move. Keep up the good work. Kevin
  10. Thankyou so much for the updated NZ mesh. I know that this would have been a real pain in the how's ya father after all the work to the original product. I have checked out Queenstown, Milford and Mount Cook. I can't get the grin off my face. I know that you will sort out any remaining hicups that may be present elsewhere. Thanks again for the great work. Kevin
  11. Really pleased that there will be animated trains to a degree. This sort of thing that adds to the emersion of the simulator, and also the balloons making use of all that Aussie hot air. Well done team. Kevin
  12. This topic has caused more of a stink than I thought it would Kevin.
  13. Have you checked for updates via your a/c in the Microsoft store and your library. The update to the core standard MSFS is there and I usually update it from there first and then let the ( cough ) game update the rest when it starts. Usually and update in the store that has been interrupted can be restarted from where you left off. I do not recommend doing a system restore when the rest of your system is fine. But what would I Know? Kevin
  14. Yes it really is a nice piece of work by the team. Went through in 1967 and stopped off at Panama City for a late afternoon early evening few hours. Walking around with very tender feet. the ships deck was so hot I got cooked through my Jandels, err thongs or what ever you like to call them. The city is sure a different beast to when I was there. I have been to many countries around the world but it is the only time I have felt really scared. I'm sure that is not a problem today and it was an experience overall that I was fortunate to have. Kevin
  15. How did you manage not to spill your Scotch on the way home ? Kevin
  16. First class as always. It would sadden me though if as per screen shots that there was only the one mule working and not in the repair shop. Also there appears to be a dock strike because there is a distinct lack of workers. C'mon chaps hu'mour me please. Kevin
  17. Opened Orbx Central and an update for YSSY Fly Tampa to version 5 installed. Have flown from Bankstown and around Sydney and landed at YSSY and every thing went and looked superb. I believe there may be an update for Cityscape Sydney on it's way at some point in the not too distant future, but I could not find anything wrong as far as my old eyes could see. This scenery in my opinion is still the best scenery that Orbx have produced in the 20+ years that I have been dipping my foot into the pond. Kevin. ps. I do have the photgrametry or whatever enabled as well.
  18. Don't ya just love flight simming, it's such a relaxing hobby Good to see that you are getting to the bottom of things Derek. Kevin
  19. Not familiar with the said Honeycombe, but just a thought when you say that the mixture has a mind of it's own. After the last update & downdate the AI assist all reset to easy. Even if you set them all back again it would seem to be prudent to recheck after any install or update of anything to recheck that it hasn't done so again. I kidd you not. Hope you get it sorted okay. Kevin
  20. Some of the promotional shots of the latest airports have been so far out of focus that I have opted not to purchase them until such time as I can see them. Also I do very little flying at midnight. This has only become a major problem recently and I have no beef with the other 85 MSFS sceneries I have purchased through Orbx central. Kevin
  21. And if you are not double vaccinated and fly under the harbour bridge you will be in deep doo doo Kevin
  22. And here's me thinking that it captures the unpredictable behavior of the Auckland drivers rather well, don't you think? Kevin
  23. It sure is seat of the pants stuff in an A320. I had a blast above Queenstown in a Pitts special back in the day. Now that was something to get the heart rate up. 20 minutes full on aerobatics. The pilot kept asking me if I was okay and I just kept saying just throw everything at it. That was at least 15 years ago and I still can't get the grin off my face. Kevin
  24. Another leap in the right direction for Orbx. Marcus has shown that he will be more than capable of further upping the game of the team. Marcus, I wish you the success you deserve. Kevin
