  1. G'day everyone, For those of you not following our project progress page at Facebook I figured it was a good time to make a brief update post. If you are not unfamiliar with the page and is interested in the progress of this project I recommend checking it out. I aim to share something weekly and it's a nice way for me to keep in touch with all of you! Here is a link if you want to check it out: Click here to go to the project page As for the progress: First of all I want to share that Jetstream Designs joined me earlier this fall on this project. I assume most of you are familiar with his work (he got a lot of his work on the Orbx store that I really recommend checking out). He has made incredible sceneries such as Paris-Orly, Toulouse, Nantes, Linate, the list goes on. An incredible talent that share my view on visuals and quality and is bringing a lot to the table. Regarding the construction progress we are moving forward quickly at the moment. The more time consuming tasks like the terminal areas are locking in on almost one pier per week now with T5A/B/F probably finishing up before end of this month, which leaves work with T2 & T4 before that whole complex is ready. A lot of the airside buildings are at a late stage in the process. I spent quite a bit of time on some new custom GSE items earlier this fall that will be introduced at ESSA and some were introduced in the ESMS update recently released. We got quite a bit left on landside things and the less noticeable building objects, which should be a quick turn around in comparsion to the other things we are working on. The ground is finishing up and we landed incredible ortho imagery that combined with the updated high-res mesh and our new ground texture set is really a huge difference (in our humble opinion at least!) to the current offerings. I hope to showcase that in the next few weeks. I know a few of you are wondering about the P3D and X-Plane version, those will be looked at once this is complete and released and as long as there is a market for it at that point they will be converted. Here are some screenshots from Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, please note it's all a work in progress with a lot of objects missing, and things might change. Hope you enjoy! Cheers, Marcus
  2. Hello. I was just wondering if the team is working on brining ESSA to msfs. Its my local airport and my favourite scenery from P3D v5 and i have waited a while for a good payware option for msfs, but it hasnt come from anywhere. Was just wondering if we can expect a realease in the future? Best regards Robin
  3. Hello, for the issue I´m reporting I´d like to link to the following thread: I´m experiencing these flashing squares at both ESSA and ESGG, not yet having tried the fix provided in the thread (which is for ESSA only though). ESNQ and ESMS both do not produce this kind of issue. Although ESNQ seems to have some problems with the snow piles flashing as well, but I suppose this is a different issue. Switching Dynamic Lights On or Off for the sceneries in Orbx Central does not change anything, the same effect still appears. This problem really is quite annoying as these light boxes are flashing on and off depending on the angle you have towards the light sources. Depending on the way you taxi in/out this can make for quite a big lightshow... I´ve been using P3Dv5 since release and would´ve hoped to see an official patch for both airports, but as that sadly doesn´t seem to be happening so far, I have to bring the issue back up here. A few simulator infos: Prepar3D v5.2 HF1 Enhanced Atmospherics - ON HDR & Dynamic Lighting - ON Thanks in advance for any help! Best Regards, Felix
  4. Hello, I seem to be having the same issues that many other customers are also having, regarding ground textures at ESSA displaying incorrectly. The solution of creating a new library did not work for me, and I am attaching a screenshot to show that I installed it to a new library. If I may ask, why are we even forced to fix this issue manually on our end, when it could be done automatically with the Orbx central manager? Is this a windows permissions issue?
  5. Hej Marcus and the Orbx team, I have had issues with Arlanda ever since the update that came out two weeks ago, I have seen threads about people having similar issues, so maybe there is a fix in the pipe. The ground-poly looks really weird and I have started to get frame-rate drops from stable 30fps down to 10fps. I have tried with un- and reinstalling Arlanda, together with ObjectFlow and moving ObjectFlow to its own library without success. And both individually and not at the same time. I have attached a screenshot and the central.log, however if there is anything else required, please let me know. Order: 5e7b86db57798 P3D central.log
  6. Hi, I'm using P3D v4.5 on the latest version however I've now noticed that Stockholm Arlanda now has no ground markings. I've verified files for Stockholm as well as verified files for Orbx ObjectFlow. What I do notice is that ObjectFlow to my understanding should be in the sim add-ons menu, however it isn't there. Other sceneies such as Dubrovnik LDDU, don't seem to be effected by this. Could anyone help me please? Thanks, Charlie.
  7. Jetways at ESSA do not operate. I have uninstalled and reinstalled ESSA several times and have GSX 2 updated to version 1.7.1. Initially the Jetways are not visible, then selecting in P3D/ AddOns/ Sode/ Reload All!!, the Jetways appears but do not work. In GSX- Customize airport positions, there are no jetways either J or S.
  8. Hi there guys, I bought ESSA last night and had installed it directly into my P3Dv4 directory. After loading, I had realized that the ground textures look extremely off (IMAGES). I have been going through quite a few of the other topics relating to this issue throughout this forum and still cannot find a working solution. I have obviously removed the static aircraft in the options menu but it looks like the ground textures have been taken by a google maps image or something - I am so very confused as to what I am to do... Is there any chance you could help me out? Thank you!
  9. Hello I bought the Stockholm Arlanda Airport from Orbx and I use P3D V4. I had to notice that the ground textures are blurred. Does anyone know the problem and how to fix it? I have already reinstalled it twice, but that didn't help. Sincerelly Florian
  10. When I boarded for this supply flight in Arlanda the weather seemed so fine. But there were loads of load to load, and during this time a hazy shade of winter appeared! Flying over the clouds usually is no problem, ... ... giving even sights to interesting structures like the Kaitumälven river. But after the initial approach into Kiruna... ... the hazyness of winters shade became more tight! Good to see the runway, finally. Good to ignore the EICAS messenges, also finally. Blow the snow! And time to unload whatever the miners need.
  11. The picture & headline say it: I find the runway and taxiway textures in Arlanda ESSA look a bit strange. Is this normal or any known error / mis-setting?
  12. Hello All, I have already asked on this forum before but will do so in hope being able to fly to ESSA! Ever since I have moved over to P3D V4, I cannot fly to Arlanda simply due to the horrible stutters i get flying there. Whenever I pan around the terminal building, my GPU usage spikes, unlike in many other large airports such as Aerosoft Frankfurt or Flightbeam San Francisco. For this reason, and based on performance feedback from other users, I believe something might be wrong with my ESSA installation. Attached below is a video demonstrating my issue. (old because it is the same video as last time I posted ) I have tried changing all the settings on the control panel, including deactivating Dynamic Lighting. My Specs are as follows: Intel i7-7700K @ 4.2GHz GTX 1060 6GB 16GB RAM, P3D Folder is on an SSD. Any help would be greatly appreciated! An Orbx transaction ID: 59248fa37b747 Desktop2019.01.01-
  13. A different kind of view!
  14. Hi! Been trying out the tower controller view for ESSA Arlanda. Ended up with the camera in this place (image). I'm not asking for this to be fixed, rather a point in the right direction where i can edit this to my liking. Where do i edit the height for this for it not to be in the middle of a wall?
  15. Hello Guys, I hope you've fun with the updated ESSA scenery like me. I'm running my system with 100% AI, and it runs really well. I love that ORBX is using SODE from now. The updated Stockholm looks fantastic, thanks Marcus, thanks ORBX for your great Community Support with this FREE update. Thanks. Today I had a lot of fun with Stockholm and my AI, I'd like to share some Screenshots, how it can be. But be aware, these jetways are really difficult, most of them are Typ N (Noseloader Jetway) and Typ T (T-Shaped Jetway). These are really difficult to handle in our Sim, because they are only 2-Way Jetways, most Airports are using 3-Way Jetways (much easier for us in the Simworld). These jetways are only doing this ways: For the beginners with SODE: (how to enable AI detection - use the Platform Manager - you'll find it in the Windows 10 Startmenu - SimObject Display Engine - Start Platform Manager) And now some screenshots with my AI, I really love it (no Programm, everything is custom) even at night: at Winter: This is from another Topic: Hello Guys, we are in the FS World. (Prepar3dv4 mostly) and things are different than in the real World. Marcus has explained it really well in his thread how it works. FTX ESSA 1.3 A brief guide on how to use the moving gates Stockholm Arlanda is maybe the airport with the most Typ T and Typ N Jetways. These are the most difficult to adjust in the FS World. In the real World, mostly the Nose Gear or the First Door is used as reference point. So these jetways (2-Way Jetways) will working with nearly every Passenger Aircraft. In the FS World, the reference Point is mostly in the middle (or near the middle) of the aircraft (depends to the Developer and the aircraft.cfg). It will never work as in real, because an 737-900 is bigger than an 737-600. The door is much further from the reference point than in an 737-600. (the same for every other Aircraft, like 747-400 to the 747-800). Every Gate can be adjusted to one Aircraft (ok, sometimes 2 or 3 are working - 737-800 together with an A320), so it's impossible to expect, every Gate can be used with every aircraft without adjusting the parking position. I've a lot of airports in my collection (Salt Lake City, Bergen, Puerto Plata, ... are using the same Typ of Jetways), so it's necessary to adjust you parking yourself after loading the scenery. When you load a flight with an 737-800 the Jetway maybe is working, when you load a flight with an 737-600 (SAS has some of these) you need to adjust. In my system I load the PMDG 737-600, the engines are running by default, im move it a little forward with the throttles, set the parking brake und load the Panel State I wan't (mostly engines off, apu or gpu running). That's the only way it works, in every scenery with this Typ of Jetways. Even on normal jetways (3-Way) you have sometimes to adjust the aircraft parking on some airports by moving. An 737-600 is much shorter than an 747-800. That's the limitation of the FS World, we have to accept. And don't forget, you need the working Exit section in you aircraft.cfg. ORBX and every other developer will it never get working like in real life, it's still not possible.   Thanks for reading and have fun with the new SODE Airports like me Urmel 
  16. ... and this was done nearly 2 months ago. With real weather on that day. And after installation of the latest ESSA version, which should have supported SODE jetways. Catering services for the Smörebröd and some fantastic fish "tapas" under way. Parked in the right area for the airline. But obviously SODE did not recognize that... so boarding happened by bus. Bye bye winter. You can clearly see Copenhagen below. Well, somehow you can: For example the Öresund bridge in the little gap between the clouds. This is Hamburg. Slightly hidden under some coverage... And here we are established to capture the glideslope in Hanover. Somehow GEN was already on spring, whilst Aerosoft still believed the airport needed snow. But ok, at least I found the runway!
  17. Due to another update of the Aerosoft Airbus I had to chose an uncommon livery for a flight out of Tromsö. And these northern impressions are great... ... though the SID is not as easy as one might think! Oh, quel surprise: Coffee service already while climbing through 14000 ft! You can be very sure I open the cockpit door... At least the route was going around the worst weather. In order to avoid coffee spills. Who would be cleaning the cockpit? Here we meet the Baltic sea. I don´t know why Vector has chosen the "frozen lakes" option, but the ground looks winterly still. We have to expect some limited visibility during descend... Limited, indeed... ... but ok. I did not manage to get the updated ESSA jetways to work. Is there a trick?
  18. It's a wintry morning in Stockholm... ...the land seems frozen... ... visibility is reduced... ...snowflakes are dancing in the air. So is the Swedish winter! The United Airlines plane that's being catered at Gate Foxtrot 36 finds itself in this winter story... ...and is being de-iced right at the gate. The passengers inside the plane observe the de-icing crew doing their job without protecting their heads and hands against the cold. Those hardy Swedes! A few minutes later, the Triple-Seven is being pushed back from the gate... ...and starts to taxi to the runway. The snow gets no less on its way... ...flaps and slats are kept retracted to prevent icy material to attach to the flaps mechanism and potentially freeze there. How different the sight, only a few minutes later! A bright morning above the clouds. The airplane cruises high above the snowy landscape of Scandinavia... ...and above the ships that traverse the Atlantic Ocean. The New World is no less covered with snow than the old one. Somewhere over New England... ...the sky looks even colder than at the other side of the pond! Who might populate those snowy hills in this time of year, when even the bears retreat to their den? New Jersey and Staten Island ahead! And a massive bank of clouds... A/P off at 270' and touchdown. After more than 8 hours, the plane has made it from the wintry cold morning in Stockholm to the wintry cold morning in Newark. Content and relieved, the passengers leave the plane through a comfortable jetway... ...and probably face the worst part of their voyage on the highway to home. That's it, I hope you liked it. Cheers.
  19. Hi, Before SODE was added to ESSA, it seemed to work fine. But after, where I get to 10 miles away (just as it loads) or flying around ESSA for a few min, it crashes FSX with an “Out of Memory error”. I do understand that 32-bit programs on a 64-but system is limited to 4GB RAM but I still don’t get why it crashes. Innsbruck, Southampton and Sumburgh work just fine. The RAM I have installed is a Corsair Vengence LPX 16GB (1x16GB) @ 3000MHz. I also get these really annoying grey lines in cirtain angles (1 line in LOWI and about 10-15 in ESSA). Thanks in advance for your help, TrainNutter
  20. Aften Update at ESSA i have static jetway and Next to it a SODE jetway, fully Workning. Any solotion ?
  21. Having issues with the latest update for ESSA, it used to work fine but now it seems that the surrounding autogen is mixed with the airport. Screenshot: This is also possibly related? I've only seen it show up today. Could this be the cause? I did what it asked and restarted the sim, but I still have the same issue with ESSA. No other ORBX airports seem to be affected. Also attached is my scenery config. Any ideas on how to fix this? Much appreciated, Fahad scenery.cfg
  22. Although, given this weather, there might be too little lift to fly the FSX mission with the glider. So I´ll better take a KingAir and get ready in Arlanda. Man, this looks cold. BTW, this flight is done at noon. At least the Swedes are routined experts in cleaning the buildings and apron. Stockholm below. Only for those with radar eyes. OpenLC was not improving much of the scenery today. Hm, this does not only look cold. Luckily Gotland, my intended destination, shows up. ILS21, but VFR would also be possible in Visby today. Get out & fetch some warm drinks, mates!
  23. Leaving home again... ... and GEN already shows winter in a very beautiful way. Turning out to the right / north... ... to see Hanover airport & city above the Airbus. The Elbe river leads to hamburg - but you can´t see it under the clouds. Some colleagues flying around me. Copenhagen below... ... and Gotland to the right. If you look at the weather on the ND, our approach seems to be a good choice. Stockholm below, ... ... just before reaching Arlanda. Unfortunately the jetways can´t be used or replaced with SODE ones in Arlanda. Which makes our beloved passengers freeze when unboarding . @Magnus Almgren , please help them!
  24. This video is a P3D4 flight of a simulated Beechcraft 1900D aircraft using PRO-ATC/X with Navigraph Charts Simlink. The flight departs from Stockholm Arlanda Airport, (ESSA), in the Sigtuna Municipality of Sweden and arrives at Helsinki-Vantaan Airport, (EFHK), in Vantaa, Finland.
