  1. Thanks John. I'll check it out. I'm trying to avoid installing everything, just picking the region or TE product that covers where I'm most likely to fly, so I won't have all the KMZs available unless I install them all... Volanta sounds like an option. I'll check it out. Thanks both!
  2. Hi all, I'm slowly reinstalling my Orbx sceneries after a hard drive failure. Dragging my feet in case 5.2 happens... However, I'm about to bite the bandwidth bullet and reinstall the west coast starting with the southwest. I have both the regions and the true earth sceneries. In order to prioritize, is there a convenient map that shows where the regions boundaries end and where the trueearth packs take over? I'm going to focus on San Diego to Las Vegas first, but will be slowly working my way north... There used to be a nice google map or KMZ files for google earth, but I can't find it for the life of me. TIA, CVG
  3. Is that the Aeroplane Heaven bird? Nice flying!
  4. In Orbx Central, click the "Discover" tab.
  5. Some 3rd party airports may require manually inactivating by renaming certain BGL files to get complete compatibility, but generally work very well.
  6. In the configuration app for each True Earth addon, there's an option to allow seasonal foliage. It's superimposed on top of stock TE photoreal, but I'm finding it looks fine for california, maybe even OR/WA. IMO...
  7. Were the Orbx bundles a one-time special? I was hoping there might be a TrueEarth US that will include SoCal once released. I am thinking about getting all four west coast titles... Thanks! sg
  8. Just a quick note for anyone following - LVFR KMIA and KFLL work nicely if you turn off their respective city buildings and phototexturing (not needed with TE).
  9. I know it was just released, but any commentary on compatibility (or need) for LatinVFR KMIA, KFLL, or KEYW? How do the new Orbx versions compare? I will do my own testing next week, but curious if I can learn from others in the meantime...
  10. I believe this is a known P3D v5 issue related to hazards.bgl which is located in .\Prepar3D v5\Scenery\Global\scenery - you can temporarily rename it to hazards.bgl.xxx and see if they go away. Of course, you'll lose all towers with that inactivated.
  11. Beautiful shots! That's my go-to repaint for the super cub at the moment too!
  12. Thanks everyone! Much appreciated. It's a fun scenery, and the description of how to find the airport VFR is perfect in the manual. There were many thunderstorms around during this flight which really added to the atmosphere!
  13. Hot! I just got the updated driver installed, very pleased as well. I haven't touched affinity mask in v5 yet, so off to tweak!
  14. Thanks for the links- unchecking DTS has solved this issue for me!
  15. Thanks - turning off vsync had no effect for me, so I'll try DTS off - I'm pretty sure it's already off, but will confirm later today.
  16. Hi all, Had some time this weekend to dig into this - the problem was caused by FSAeroData updating the two BGLs and replacing the ICAOs. Please consider my file a compatibility patch for FSAD users. Thanks for your help too, Graham. Best, sg
  17. Have you installed Hot Fix 1 for P3Dv5?
  18. Hi all, I have KBID and Terraflora V2 with FTX color pallet set. Noticed a strange flickering that seems like a mip map issue. Any thoughts on how to resolve? Thanks, sg
  19. For anyone interested, please follow these instructions and PM me if there are any questions: 1. Open your pago install folder. For me, I have installed into a library so my path is "L:\OrbxLibrary\p3dv5\NSTU Pago Pago International Airport\Orbx\FTX_PI\FTX_AA_NSTU\Scenery". 2. In that folder please rename two files from .bgl to .xxx - the two files are Orbx_PI_AS_APX_Z08.BGL and Orbx_PI_AS_APX_FAQ.BGL 3. Unzip the attached file into that directory. You should no longer have ICAO entries for FAQ or Z08, only the new ICAOs of NSFQ and NSAS. In the event of an update of either the Orbx scenery or P3D, you will likely need to repeat these steps and the .xxx files will be replaced with defaults. CVG PAGO fix 26MAY20.zip
  20. Fixed! Nick, I'm happy to share my bgl with your permission if you'd like. This region looks tremendous in P3Dv5!
  21. In P3D v5 the ICAO Z08 (which looks like the version from Orbx) has one parking spot, shown below. The ICAO NSAS has none and is likely stock. Interestingly, ADE for v5 cannot find the ICAO NSAS when trying to open the stock airport, nor does it show up in the excel sheets in the "ICAO changes" thread... I'll keep you posted if I find anything else out. EDIT: Had to rebuild indexes in ADE - now I can load NSAS.
