  1. Hello Nick. No it doesn't. I stopped it and restasrted it and it was almost done (2 gBytes remaining) and then completed. I started the download of Florida TrueEarth and it seems to be almost OK. I'm saying almost OK because ounce in a while I get the message "Connection Interrupted...". The speed is always around the maximum I can get from my Internet provider ( 4mBytes per sec). Thank you.
  2. I forgot to mention that i'm downloading at around 4 mBytes/sec. Since the package of Washington is around 44 gBytes, normally it should take between 3 or 4 hours to complete the download. Thank you for your time.
  3. I just bought (friday 27th) TrueEarth sceneries. Washington, Oregon and Florida. I started the installation of Washington on friday but I had to stop after a while. I had to leave for the weekend. I restarted it Sunday night ( had already 18 gB downloaded) and now it's been almost 12 hours that I started it and it's not complete yet. Always staying at "Connection interrupted. Retrying". I still have Oregon and Florida to install. Does someone know if there is a problem with the server ?
  4. Hello ! I just bought ENNO for FSX and I'm unable to install VIA Orbx central. I don't understand why it's doing that. Orbx central is setup correctly. Is there someone who went thrue this situation ? Enlightment would be very appreciated. Thank you !
  5. OK. I'll check the end of the your discount. Thank you for the info !
  6. How come prices of Britain True Earth (north, central ans south) has doubled since last year. I want to buy Britain north and central but will wait for a 50% discount if it ever happens.
  7. I have the same problem. Every scenery more than 1 gB (even 300 mB) displays very very very frequently "connection interruppted". It displays connection interrupted every 20 seconds. I have a 30 mBits /sec connection with my provider and the connection is OK for everything else. Now I'm triying to update TrueEarth Great Britain South, which is 41.2 gB. Really painful. Can someone do something to solve this ever lasting issue. Thank you.
  8. Hi Nick ! I must admit that I didn't read the user guide but I downloaded few updates after switching to ORBXCentral and it downloaded only the update part of the region. This is logic. But that I would find a little bit time consuming to manage when reinstalling. Can you tell me if ORBXCentral will be able to reinstall sceneries from a previous file downloaded with FTXCentral 3 ? I wouldn't want to redonwload again all these sceneries because I'm using ORBXCentral. Thank you
  9. Thank you for this clarification. Actually I'm using FTXCentral 3 because it gives me the opportunity to download the zip files of the sceneries on my PC. That I consider very useful if I have to reinstall. I tried ORBXCentral and I didn't find this feature. If I reinstall I just have to extract the files (VIA FTXCentral 3), which is more faster than waiting for a download to complete. Thank you again. It's appreciated.
  10. Wow ! Thank you for that great suuport ! I guess after spending $1600 of sceneries this is the kind of support we (the customers) deserve.
  11. I reinstalled again Canberra cityscape and now the control panel button is no more available (greyed). I think this is normal if I compare to GoldCoast cityscene which has no control button available (greyed). Can you tell if there is an available control panel button for Canberra scenery. Thank you for your time.
  12. Hi ! Maybe the description of the issue wasn't clear. Sorry for that. The problem is about the control panel button of Canberra cityscape scenery. All others sceneries control button are working correctly except only for the Canberra cityscape scenery. May be a look from you or a developper in the log file that I attached (as they suggest in the error message) could lead to a precise solution. Thank you
  13. Hello everyone. I'm trying to see the options of Canberra cityscape by pressing the control panel button in FTX Central and I get an error immediately. All others sceneries control panel button are working correctly. I rebooted but no success. I uninstalled and reinstalled and still an error. I have a log file generated automatically that I attached to this topic. Am I the only one with this problem ? Can someone is able to give me a hint of how to solve this issue ? Thank you. orbx_ftxcentral_log.txt
  14. For thos who are tired searching for hours LOIN : 47°18'31.15"N 11° 3'1.97"E, LOJT : 47° 8'0.65"N 11°42'14.12"E, Unnamed on Highway : 47°22'32.36"N 11°44'42.56"E
  15. M. Sawatzky, documentation doesn't say much for the location except for a very rough picture and position of those tiny helipads. Unable to find LOIN and emergency helipads. Even by using the slew mode can't find them. Could it be possible for you to give us the latitude and longitude of those 2 helipads ? It would be more useful. A small dot to idebtify the helipads on the plan of the scenery in the pdf would have been more precise than a large image of an helicopter covering a large surface. Thank you !
  16. I was able to complete the reinstallation by cancelling and restarting the reinstallation 2 more times. The first time the installer download 5.8 gB and it stops there. I had to cancel and restart the installation. The second time it downloads around 430 mB and it stops there. I had to cancel and restart the installation. The third time it downloads around 95 mB and complete the installation. Why does it stop like that.
  17. Hi everyone ! The new installer doesn't work well. I'm trying to reinstall open LC North America and it stucks at 78% and doesn't move anymore. I had the same problem for updating global base pack and global vector. I had to retry 3 times before the updates complete. My internet connection is working correctly as usual. Is there something wrong with the installer or the servers. I notice also that the download speed showing on the installer is sometimes 100 mB per sec. But it doesn't download at that speed. It's always downloading at around 4mB per sec. I think there is an info refresh issue when it's time to show download speed. Is there something I can do to solve the installation issue. Thank you !
  18. I applied John Venema's settings for P3D and still have small stutters even with an helicopter at EGLC (slow traveling speed [110 knots]). I think the followings are very important informations for ORBX developpers Average number of files of ORBX sceneries is between 6000 and 10000 files (spread on a large area). TrueEarth Netherlands has around 32200 files. TrueEarth GreatBritain South has around 87000 files (on a very small area). I have a good sytem but when it's time to render all those objects (not necessarily 87,000) at the same time, the CPU is struggling and we have processe's bottleneck. I can't wait to have the 10 gHz CPU. Don't get me wrong. I really like ORBX sceneries. It really gives almost real life views when flying. I wouldn't fly without them especially in an helicopter…Wow. True Earth Netherlands is running fine when you unchecked Shed model in the settings. I'm not happy with the purchase of TESGB.
  19. For reference the file is in the following directory C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Scenery\World\scenery I had the same elevation issue. After deleting the file and restart P3D It displays fine now. Thank you !
  20. All these details are very very nice......sincerely. But I don't think it is essential for a flight simulation. The performance of a system, ounce in the sim, is impacted dramatically.............unless you have a $3000 rig. I don't think that some of those detailed objects (ex: recycling bin or soda machine) should be in a scenery and other objects should be less detailed (ex: fences). That would give a chance for the rig to perform well (good FPS and no stutters) well during an approach. If you want to walk around the airport, that's OK but if you want to fly around the airport it can be painful. With TEGBS even with my system It's impossible for me to fly over EGLL or EGLC without stutters or loss of FPS. I did all the tweaks recomended by John Venema but I don't have his system. I really like ORBX sceneries ( I spent over $1200 for them) but those Thrue Earth things are too heavy for our rigs.
  21. Thank you John Venema for those informations. I applied all the settings you suggested and it gave me a not too bad performance depending of the plane I'm flying. With a slow plane (Cessna 172) it's good but with a plane much faster than that (Boeing 737) the system struggles a little. For those who have a mid end rig it can be very less performing. For sure it can be smooth with a system at $3100.
  22. I have the same problem. No airport buildings after the update to Australia v2. Of course, before updating, I uninstalled Autralia v1 VIA FTX Central and I also disabled FlyTampa scenery. See the picture below of the no buildings situation in YSSY. I didn't change any graphics settings in P3D. All the same as it was before updating. To correct that situation I enabled again FlyTampa scenery and put it in top priority in the scenery library and now I have a decent scenery for the YSSY scenery. Is there a special setting in P3D or ORBX to be able see the airports building or the update is just like that ?? no buildings FlyTampa buildings Thank you !
