  1. Nick, Yes - I do have a Flytampa - Toronto airport scenery. It has a Toronto LC file "Toronto_lc.bgl" I just disabled the Toronto_lc.bgl file to off and tested again. All the incorrect textures are gone. the scenery looks good. Below is the screen shot. Thanks for your help.
  2. Nick, Thank you for the link to resolve the scenery texture issues. I followed the link and the steps. The KSFO area issue did get resolved wonderfully. I am still having scenery issues at CYYZ area. Below is the screen shot near CYYZ area Lat N43 47 29.11; Lon W79 42 18.45
  3. Recently updated to Orbx Central, and in the process wiped out my FSX -> base / Scenery. Repaired my FSX installation and then caused all sorts of scenery issues. I have Base Pack, Vector, LC Europe, LC Mesh South America, LC North America, LC South America and all Regions for NA. I also have few Orbx Airports, along with third party airports OS: Windows 10 Sim: FSX Acceleration Any help to resolve this scenery issue will be highly appreciated. Below is the screen shot near KSFO Lat N37 35 13.31; Lon W122 19 13.45
  4. Just an update. After much trial and error, following temporary changes has helped me get back FPS to 28-30 and most of my freezing and pauses are gone. I can now fly my stock Cessna, and GA tube liners When I disable (uncheck) the following the NA Southern California regions scenery in "Scenery Library", I get no freezing/Pauses and my FPS are in 28 - 30. FTX_NA_SCA05_SCENERY. The main culprit of freezing and pauses is found in FTX_NA_SCA05_SCENERY folder. I then created a new folder "ORBX_SCA" under "Addon Scenery" as below: Addon Scenery\ORBX_SCA Also created sub folders for "scenery" and "texture" as below: Addon Scenery\ORBX_SCA\scenery Addon Scenery\ORBX_SCA\texture Copied only those airports which I normally fly from "FTX_NA_SCA05_SCENERY\scenery" to the above new folder "Addon Scenery\ORBX_SCA\scenery" For example: flying from KSBA TO KLAX Copied the following files 1) ADE_FTX_SCA_KSBA.bgl 2) ADE_FTX_SCA_KSBA_CVX.bgl 3) ADE_FTX_SCA_KSBA_GP.bgl 4) FTX_SCA_objects_KSBA_PLC.bgl 5) ADE_FTX_SCA_KLAX.bgl 6) ADE_FTX_SCA_KLAX_CVX.bgl 7) ADE_SCA_objects_KLAX_PLC.bgl I left the texture folder "Addon Scenery\ORBX_SCA\texture" blank, with no textures. As time permits, I will add textures and check the sim. This is going to be a long drawn out process. the new folder "Addon Scenery\ORBX_SCA" is having the same priority order as before for example: Addon Scenery\ORBX_SCA FTX_NA_SCA06_CVX FTX_NA_SCA07_MESH FTX_NA_SCA08_CUSTOM PLEASE NOTE: The above changes will take away major scenery objects from NA Southern California regions.
  5. Hello zkerr8, I did not get any answer from FreeBird. But, I did find a temporary solution, I will be posting soon.
  6. Can you please give some clear details as to which land class and 6 vector entries, that you are disabling or unchecking while flying in the NA Southern California region? Can you provide which title in Scenery Library are you disabling or unchecking.? This will help all of us in resolving this issue. You are right, these freezing/Pauses are happening at the same position of Latitude and Longitude. Well, if the FPS are going to drop down, It would have been nice, if Orbx mentioned in their products sale page as a warning to customers. Currently, I just cannot fly any of my PMDG aircrafts 737, 777, 747 or MD11 in LA area, I immediately get OOM error. Only option left is to disable the NA Southern California region. It is sad that I paid for it, but cannot use it. I hope there is resolution to this issue.
  7. FreeBird, I tried putting in your suggestion (turning off vector and landclass) as below, but it did not stop the freezing/Pauses. This time I tried flying from KSBA (Santa Barbara) to KLAX (Los Angeles). I received around 3 freezing/Pauses for 2 to 3 seconds each. This also drops frame rates as before from 30 FPS to spiking between 15 - 23 FPS Disabled (unchecked) the following scenery in "Scenery Library" ORBX\FTX_OLC\OLC_EU1 ORBX\FTX_OLC\OLC_NA1 ORBX\FTX_OLC\OLC_NA2 ORBX\FTX_OLC\OLC_AA ORBX\FTX_VECTOR\FTX_VECTOR_OBJ Is there any other VECTOR Object I should disable for further testing?
  8. As requested below are the specs of my PC CPU - i7 5820K @3.3 GHz OC to 4.1 GHz Mother Board - MSI X99S SLI Plus with LGA 2011.3 RAM - DDR4 32 GB @2400 MHz GPU - Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 @ 4 GB Flight Sim - FSX with Acceleration Pack (SP1 and SP2) Operating System - Windows 10 creators update Add On Aircraft - None (using only default FSX Aircraft) Add On Scenery - Orbx Products only FSUIPC with WideFS - Full license During my testing for NA Southern California region, I am using only Default Cessna C-172
  9. Just an update. When I disable (uncheck) the following the NA Southern California regions scenery in "Scenery Library", I get no freezing/Pauses and my FPS are in 28 - 30. FTX_NA_SCA05_SCENERY FTX_NA_SCA06_CVX FTX_NA_SCA07_MESH FTX_NA_SCA08_CUSTOM I am hoping somebody will have some resolution.
  10. I recently downloaded NA Northern California and NA Southern California regions. I also have FTX Global, FTX Vector and FTX Global Open LC North America. When I fly between any two airports (KSNA - KTOA) in Southern California in C-172. I am facing following issues: My frame rates are dropping from 30 FPS to spiking between 11 - 23 FPS (FSX frame rates are locked at 30 FPS) FSX is freezing/Pauses for 2 to 3 seconds. This happens at least 3 or 4 times in a short flight of 20 mins. I have set the Autogen Density = Normal I cannot enjoy my VFR flights in So CAL. Is there any resolution to this issues? Flying VFR flights in Northern CAL is just wonderful, but not in So CAL.
  11. As suggested, I went ahead and installed the Orbx Libraries. After installation, scenery.cfg now has the following information as given below: In the Scenery Library, I see the FTXAA_ORBXLIBS listed as Priority 1 (right on top) - Is this the correct position? - Where will the Freeware or Payware Airport scenery from third party go? above FTXAA_ORBXLIBS or below FTXAA_ORBXLIBS ? FTX GLOBAL BASE ORBX!OPENLC_BASE ORBX!OPENLC_EUROPE1 ORBX!OPENLC_NAMERICA1 FTX GLOBAL VECTOR FTX_VECTOR_AEC FTX_VECTOR_APT FTX_VECTOR_CVX FTX_VECTOR_EXX FTX_VECTOR_FixedAPT FTX_VECTOR_OBJ ORBX LIBRARIES FTXAA_ORBXLIBS Thank you for your assistance
  12. Doug, Thanks for your response. I just checked once again at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX\Scenery.CFG there is no entry of FTX Products. Since there is no entry in Scenery.CFG file, I do not see any listing in the Scenery Library. Please note: I have a default set up. I have not added any scenery to FSX. I have just started with FTX Global Base Pack and FTX Global Vector. Does the FTX Global Base also make an entry into the scenery.cfg? In the scenery library order I have Priority 1 = Edwards_AFB Priority 120 = Default Terrain Could you please send me your copy of scenery.cfg, where FTX Global Base and /or FTX Vector is displayed, so that I can make a manual entry into the scenery.cfg file.?
  13. I downloaded and installed FTX Global Base, and FTX Global Vector. But, I did not see any configuration changes in Scenery.cfg file at ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX folder. There are no new changes in the FSX Scenery Library Order. Only changes I have noticed are at Orbx\FTX_Vector folder with the following sub folders: FTX_VECTOR_AEC FTX_VECTOR_APT FTX_VECTOR_CVX FTX_VECTOR_EXX FTX_VECTOR_FixedAPT FTX_VECTOR_OBJ I did run the auto configuration tool for Airport Elevation Configuration. Is this the correct behavior? What should I be looking for in the sim, after the FTX Global Vector Installation?
  14. Hey Guys, As a newbie for Orbx Systems, I just recently purchased the following products during the August 2017 Sale. FTX Global Base Pack FTX Global Vector FTX Global Open LC North America NA Northern California NA Southern California I just installed only "FTX Global Base Pack". I like to know the order of installation of the above products, and the backup of the products, in case I loose or format my PC. What about Orbx libraries? When I should install or how is it related to the above products? If I install the other products later one-by-one, do I have to pay the differences from the August sale amount? Any help will be much appreciated.
