  1. The lights on the larger roads in my Orbx England look like really large dashes. Is this correct and can I make them smaller they don't look very good in my view?
  2. Good Morning All, Can any one show me or tell me where I may see an example of scenery for those that have True Earth GB Central/or South ie what I should expect to see and quality of the scenery? Only I have been so disappointed with the scenery I reverted back to EU England /Scotland/Wales/Ireland, I attach some screen shots of what I get when in this case as an example fling around my local airport EGNX (East Midlands) AS YOU SEE THE SCENERY IS EXCELLENT IN MY VIEW, I am at a loss why the scenery presentation is so poor with TE GB Central etc I have also TE GB LIBRARY'S installed. I assume perhaps I have not got the correct settings or some other configuration issue that is causing the disappointment in the TE series of scenery?.
  3. First announced at Cosford in late 2019 and after some sneak previews, EGNT Newcastle International Airport for P3Dv4+ is almost here. Newcastle International Airport is located north of the university city of Newcastle Upon Tyne in the North East of England. Once an industrial superpower of the shipbuilding era Newcastle has now transformed into a buzzing cultural hub. Over 5 million visitors a year pass through the doors from leisure routes operated by narrow-body jets to Las Palmas & Santorini and long-haul visits to Dubai in a 777-300ER. This is the perfect airport for those wanting something a bit more regional, but with an international appeal. The 7,600ft runway provides quite the challenge when operating those heavier aircraft, especially during the typical rainy weather of the north of England. Our UK team based in Havant have taken care and attention when developing Newcastle International Airport and it shows. With high-quality texture work throughout and plenty of features to enjoy, Newcastle is a great addition to the UK set of airports. Features Detailed and stunning PBR rendition of Newcastle International Airport Ultra-high quality texture work throughout Stunning 3D modelling 30cm per pixel photoreal with seasons Great challenging runway for heavy jets Highly detailed PBR Ground Service Equipment SODE animated jetways & VGDS support Fully compatible with TrueEarth Great Britain Central and EU England
  4. Have these black tiles creeping into my latest version of P3D V4, Orbx England and USA (North/South California). Orbx is installed into the main P3D folder. So far I have uninstalled all areas and global libraries. Then reinstalled each of them. Have tried: If your Orbx Libraries are installed into the P3D folder: Please try renaming Scenery\BASE\Scenery\lclookup.bgl to lclookup.bgl .off Run Verify files for the Orbx Libraries which will replace the lclookup.bgl file. Have run verify files on every product, multiple times. These little black tiles are not going anywhere. Europe region, plain old global region, Aus V2 and New Zealand dont suffer from missing/replaced titles. attached is default jet NE of EGGP and PMDG 737 NW of KSAN
  5. Hi, Any one know if having striped like the photos/checks/patches is normal. Flying over Amsterdam with Orbx Global, Vector, LC Europe, Region England, Buildings HD and Trees. Any ideas would be appreciated.
  6. Hello, bought this morning Leeds Bradford on your website. Everything is OK but the scenery is not listed in OrbxCentral (for me at least) and I have no possibility to install it. Please could you help me with this issue Regards daniel kittler Your transaction ID / receipt number is 5e48e9aa0046f
  7. I just bought the England South for X-Plane 11. It is my first attempt at buying an add-on for X-Plane. Despite numerous attempts to verify or upload using Orbx Central, I now keep getting the attached error message ("...error could not locate image file for terrain, etc...…") when I now try to open X-Plane. I saw various forum posts about going into this folder or that folder but I really really have no clue where to even look to find the folder, let alone what folder or what to then do. Any help would be very much appreciated
  8. Hello, I have recently switched to a new pc which meant i had to reinstall all my games. On discovering that my backed up OrbX scenery .zips were not detected by FTXCentral (and needed to be downloaded again) i realised that FTX England does not appear in my scenery library. All the rest of my OrbX scenery appears and is selectable, but England says it is installed and up to date but is not visible upon loading Scenery Config Editor with the others (which appear no problem). The strange thing is that EU England appears under F:\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\ORBX\FTX_EU but is not added to the scenery config! Can anyone help me please? I really want to get back in the sky with my favourite scenery! Thank you for your time.
  9. I was very excited when I discovered that ORBX had made maps of central UK. A bit sceptical that my late 2015 iMac would be happy, but installed anyway and... My favourite current route is shuttling between North Weald (EGSX) in Essex (where I have an hour's flight booked next month) and Rochester (EGTO) (near where I live). Here's the view of the Medway bridge just after takeoff: Heading towards Gravesend over the A2, the QE2 Bridge in the background: Then Gravesend itself, with my local Shell garage: And inexplicably, the Gurdwara has turned into a cathedral: Still, there's the ferry and (some of the) wind turbines... ...although when I got to the bridge, something very odd was happening to the traffic: A nice view of the City: and finals to 02 at North Weald: I'm going to have to do something about those motorway signs. Oh, and here's the settings that work. For some of those screenshots I had RW objects on max, but it can get a bit juddery when I do that.
  10. Hi Folks. Congratulations and a huge thank you Orbx for TE England South for P3D, this is the way to go, cant wait for more True Earth.. and seasons too... Yes I know, huge files.... however for now, I think I have diagnosed a problem / corruption of the content in the True Earth England Folder named: - FTX_EU_!GBS_05_SCENERY The Orbx Installers put it on my system with everything else Orbx F:\FS-P3dv4\ORBX\FTX_EU\FTX_EU_!GBS_05_SCENERY Worryingly it takes 12 minutes to load a scenario using True Earth England South and no matter where the sliders are, it is difficult to produce a good result without stutters and blurring, the CPU is stressed out even with the sliders on normal or low. My PC Spec: - Windows 10 1809 (build 17763.316) - i7 6700k @ 4.4Ghz - 32Gb of 3200 Ram - Main GPU is 2080ti - IIyama G Master GBZ888UHSU 4k Display @ 3840x2160 native 30Hz (Display Port) Flight Sim Secondary GPU is 980 ti - Hanns-G 1920x1080 native 60Hz (HDMI) LInda - Active Sky - Browser etc.... 950pro M.2 500Gb for Windows. 850pro SSD 1Tb for P3dv4.4.16.27077 and Orbx collection 850evo SSD 500Gb with all addons packages and scenery connected via addon.xml (the only scenery on my scenery config is Orbx as it installed itself) FPS Locked at 30fps.. I have a lot of Orbx Scenery and use FTX England, Scotland and Wales regularly, Fast Jets at Low Level, GA, and Helicopters. I can fly about all day over any FTX terrain or city with all sliders fully to the right, maxed out. When I feel the need, the need for speed, I catapult off the Nimitz just off Anglesea and crack on to LFA-7 in an F14 at 250ft & 300kts - Awesome..... and with TE England it will be like the real thing, yee har, jesters dead.... usual 29-30 fps However with all scenery turned off except required base packs, Vector and True Earth England South, the scenery looks amazing for a few minutes, my CPU is stable and not strained, the fans are nice and quiet, then the cooling fans start to rev up and the resource monitor indicates all hell has let loose, cpu is spluttering at 100%. This happens even with all sliders left flying at 100kts in a C172.. Just to clarify I read the manual and 3D Vegetation is switched off, the only FS software running was P3dv4.4.16.27077 - FSUIPC5.1.5 - Linda 3.09.809 So I attempted to diagnose by using the scenery configurator within P3D and switched off everything, except required Base files - Vector and the 4 folders of EU-England and I was back in business.

Firstly I tried this combination of Orbx Scenery.. and moved the Custom folder down to priority 26 and switched off the EU_ENG_08_Custom. Here's one I made earlier.. OFF-FTX_EU_!GBS_05_SCENERY - 14.2Gb - Priority 19 OFF-FTX_EU_!GBS_06_CVX - 251Mb - Priority 20 OFF-FTX_EU_!GBS_07_MESH - 1.14Gb - Priority 21 ON-FTX_EU_ENG_05_SCENERY - 1.35Gb - Priority 22 ON-FTX_EU_ENG_06_CVX - 294Mb - Priority 23 ON-FTX_EU_ENG_07_MESH - 1.43Gb - Priority 24 ON-FTX_EU_!GBS_08_CUSTOM - 42.2Gb - Priority 25 OFF-FTX_EU_ENG_08_CUSTOM - 3.87Gb - Priority 26 I expected problems but this combination worked a treat, all I noticed was losing the winter textures I had set up, but there was no stuttering or bluing after a flying for 30 mins or so 29-30fps.. and this custom folder is = 42.2Gb. almost 40Gb larger than the EU ENG 08 Custom scenery folder.. Sliders fully right.. For the record the loading time to put a C172 on the active at EGHI in summer at 10am with clear skies was 3min 30sec and I flew at 110kts - 2000ft from EGHI over Soton- Bournemouth and on to Poole without any problems, fully maxed out on the sliders etc... and back.. 29-30 fps stable... Secondly I tried this combination.

(Normally 30fps) I took off and headed towards poole, as I trundled down the RW the cooling fans in my PC case began to increase in speed and all 8 cores on the cpu had maxed out, fps dropped to 15 and was bouncing to 29 and back. As I neared Bournemouth the cooling fans increased more and continued to wind up, my PC sounded like an F14 screaming on start up... On crossing in to Bournemouth, south of the airport, the screen started to stutter fps down to 9 and fluctuating and by the time I reached Poole bay all cores were maxed out. 14590MB of Ram were being used 17739 were free. My P3D SSD (Disk 1) was throwing out data but not too stressed at 80% ish.. whilst the CPUs were having a hard time 80 to 100%. The ground textures did not look as crisp as they usually do. I headed back towards Southampton, as I neared the docks all 8 cores were flat out, fps down to 9, Cooling Fans maxed out too... screen stuttering and textures blurrie.... which if I pause the sim for a while, they become clear and the cpu's catchup and the fps settles at 30... My BIGGEST COMPLAINT HOWEVER is seeing trees in the middle of the containers in Southampton Docks... but thats why we cant swap the scenery folders around like I have... it is after all just a test. Whilst on the hoof, without leaving this scenario I reconfigured the scenery back to this....

Definitely think there is an issue with contents of folder FTX_EU_!GBS_05_SCENERY Hope this has been informative and has helped to get to the bottom of the problem, why True Earth Netherlands is OK and True Earth England South has a few teething issues...

  11. Hello all. I am using FTX Global Vector, FTX Global Base and just added FTX Global OpenLC EU andEU England. This is just north of Southampton 8/11/18 1251. Please advise with thanks, Glenn
  12. Goodday, This morning I installed FTX Global and FTX England but I encounter a problem, that can be seen in the screenshot. Ive tried multiple scenery orders. FTX Central is not letting me force migration as the box is greyed out. Any help would be appraciated.
  13. Hi, Have just installed England + Popham scenery into P3d V4 but am getting huge number of empty, random content tiles in the scenery outside the popham coverage region. The popham region itself appears fine. I get about 30fps update rate. The tiles appear first to be dark blue plain "water" which then infill to random terrain when very close or underneath the a/c. I am used to seeing remote scenery changing of course, but never within a few metres of the a/c. In addition, some tiles, although adjacent to other similar tiles will have sections of motorway or major roads on them, adjacent to plain fields, so you get situations where traffic is depicted moving across a few grass fields then rejoining the motorway! So far i have played with changing all the settings for terrain resolution etc. as listed in the manual for popham and uk, but this has not affected the result. I have also disabled each orbx library in turn starting at the lowest until all libraries were disabled. As I enabled each library in turn, the area which had previously been "randomised" as described remained contiguous with other tiles providing a seamless landscape as you would expect, although visually appeared to be no different from the default autogen scenery in p3d. On enabling the lowest priority "EXT" library, the randomised terrain re-appeared. I could of course leave it like this, but then it would result in paying for a non-operational product in p3d. I suppose I should add that the same libraries work fine in FSX! Regards, Viseng.
  14. [I start with what happened, before I come to the question. Please don't react to the first paragraph without reading through.] While flying over Germany with both ORBX Germany North installed, as well as parts of the Europe Photoreal freeware scenery, I soon discovered that having the airport AFCADS of both were causing trouble. I fact, Prepar3D v3 crashed if I had the same airport twice, independent of the order. The writer of the freeware AFCADS told be he did not use ORBX Germany North, so couldn't help. Since we were flying with a small group, allmost all using only the Europe PR2 scenery, I disabled the ORBX Germany scenery. A few German airports now turned out to be horribly elevated (or sunk actually) with respect to the surrounding area. I initially though of the AEC tool in ORBX Vector, but that did not change things. Even disabling the AEC folder in Scenery config didn't. Then I was asked to check Scenery\World\Scenery and found there were elevation corrections installed there as part of ORBX Germany North. Disabling the ORBX Germany North scenery naturally didn't do anything about those files. Could you please suggest something to help me here? Or allow FTX Central to disable cleanly a scenery, so I don't have to go the uninstall-redownload-install route? Or perhaps stay out of Scenery\World\Scenery?
  15. Hi, Directly on the western edge of Dartmoor in south west England (for the avoidance of confusion it's the dark green square patch just right of centre shot) there is a large square block of forestry landclass that does not exist at all in real life. Just one other thing. The runway in Guernsey slopes down from east to west in real life, 303 feet elevation at the west end and 334 at the east end but it is flat in the sim.
  16. Hi, i have tried to avoid asking this question and find an existing solution on here but can't seem to resolve the problem... Installed both the ORBX England pack and the ORBX Libraries, seemingly successfully as are showing up within FSX, but they are not loading at all, just the default textures still. I have played around with the location/order of the FSX entries shown in the scenery section of FSX itself, at the moment I have the libraries on top and England next then all the defaults follow. Did try moving the Add Ons folder up above England but still no luck. Thanks so much for any help you can give!!
  17. Firstly a belated thank you for the update to Eu England, especially to RAF College Cranwell. I did my last flying tour there and later spent ten years there as a civilian lecturer. I fully understand that ORBX is not photorealistic scenery but is becoming more and more, as sceneries are updated, accurate in terms of significant VFR navigational features. So with that in mind I hope you find the 21 detailed observations in the attached file useful for the next update. Yours Chris Chris Finn ORBX EU ENGLAND FEEDBACK.docx
  18. Was planning to add more ORBX regions. Have Global, Vectors, England and Scotland. England and Scotland were excellent. (Had PNW installed from box set previously) Decided to upgrade FTX Central 3 and then add new regions from there. Since upgrading FTXC and migrating Global, Vectors, Libs, England and Scotland, regions look fuzzy. Tried flying over Liverpool and then London area. See attached screen shots around London. Please help. Thanks. Bill
  19. What advantage it it to get the Wales region if I already have the England Region?
  20. Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone else had this issue. It's a flating polygon over England that stretches into the distance as far as the eye can see. I have FTX Global Base, Vector, and openLC Europe. P3D v4 This is over near EGMC. Thanks!
  21. Hi, I have a DVD version of FTX England (plus several other FTX DVDs: Australia, NZ North Island, NZ South Island, Pacific NW, Pacific Fjords & Northern Rockies) and have been attempting to action an upgrade off the files provided on this site. The other DVD regions have upgraded fine, but England is just not happening. I have tries this several times, but still no upgrade being reported in FTX Central 3 for England. Is there a trick to doing England upgrade that I may have missed? I also note the following statement is made on the update page "These downloads are mainly for users that have DVD originals and have not cross graded their product (i.e. a digital version)." I would love to cross grading the product and avoid this upgrade issue. How can I do this.? Kind regards Andrew
  22. I purchased orbx FTX England, however my textures are ridiculously blurred and do not load when i fly over them for minutes. This is not how the screenshots show the product, i have tried gogoling on other forums but to no help. I have even set all sliders to the max and it makes no difference. The profuct also looks horrible when cruising at 35000ft above it, it looks like fields have been thrown into a blender and chucked back otu everywhere I am using P3DV3.4 (however even on V4 it doesnt work) All flytampa sceneries including amsterdam do not have this issue and laod in plenty of tiem. I have P3D installed onto an SSD so a manual hard drive is not the problem (however V4 is on a manual hard drive, but that makes no difference) Thanks, Luke. ORBX FTX England- 5989b94593704.
  23. Hi, I am looking to purchase and I have a few questions which are not answered on the sales site (as far as I can see) 1) Do I need FTX Global BASE for EU England etc... ? 2) Do I need FTX Global HD Trees for EU England or are the trees already replaced by the EU England scenery? 3) Do I need FTX Global Vector for EU England or is the vector info included in the EU England scenery? I suppose the underlying question is, do I need anything other than EU England, to achieve the screenshots displayed on EU Englands sales page? Thank you in advance for your help.
  24. I have been getting more and more dreadful ground textures in that they are getting more blurry and to say i have the following installed and using ftx central v3 i am deeply saddned by the lack of quality, can some one help in a dummy guide to help me get it to how it should be please? I have FTX Global, Global vectors, LC Europe, Trees and England. i have settings reasonably high as my rig is not too bad: I7-4790k 16GB RAM GTX980TI The two low level pics are departing EGCC rwy 23R and the other id overhead the CLN VOR. I am baffled with what im doing wrong. Can someone please help i feel as though i am wasting my money for some reason when other people have it looking so good. Many thanks Neil
  25. Hello All, I recently purchase Orbx EGHI and orbx England... EGHI works amazingly looks amazing performance is amazing everything is fine. However... Orbx England has not made an appearance. It doesn't appear in my scenery library and there is no visual difference to my surrounding terrain at all other than an unbelievable amount of blurriness. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction and offer some help as this is frankly ruined my sim... I managed to get some screenshots of the terrain... The blurries have been a lot worse in the past few hours but this gives you an idea of the issue and shows orbx England is not present. My Order Numbers are EU england 58e61b91afd63. EGHI 58e2a55dd6bb3
