  1. ... and all three in just one flight. With a nearly fully fuelled A320 from Singapore - a significant part of the runway was required to get airborne. Immediately turned south, you can still see Changi airport top right. Holding at 6000 ft over Pulau Rempang. Finally climbing we cross the Equator at Pulau Penjatan. West Borneo. Not really much to see on the ground. Have I ever asked for OpenLC Asia before? Slightly more details over South Borneo. Sulawesi in the background... ... and Timor ahead. And here we are back in a full fat scenery pack: Bathurst Island, the first tip of the Northern Territory we meet. Darwin city ahead. Flying downwind we have a nice view on Adelaide River. Turning into final of YPDN´s 29 over Palmerston. And here we are, ... ... ready to touch the continent. But it seems to be rain season here in Darwin
  2. Scoot has reactivated international services just for us, with one of their Dreamliners ready for boarding at Broome. Here we go. Along Cable Beach ... ... and over the sea. The innertropical convergence zone always has some thunderstorms on the menu... ... as we reach Bali. Descending over Pulau Bintan. Vector data are fine, the landclass is default and FTX Global Base. Kampung Baru. Could be northern Europe as well... On final into my favourite East Asian hub, ... ... you know which.
  3. In these times global logistics are much more important than passenger travel. Today we load medical supplies at Singers... ... take off in the "wrong" direction... ... but turn back westwards soon to see the CBD in the background. Pekanbaru / Sumatra is the last Asian city we cross... ... before we see Praslin / Seychelles. And finally the Kenya coast... ... on our way towards the Kilimanjaro... ... and Jomo Kenyatta airport of Nairobi. "Hurry Harry, to bring that stuff back into cold storage!"
  4. Hello, I am running P3Dv 5.1 hotfix one and everything was fine until today when I was approaching LV and I noticed no more Lake Mead showing up! I tried everything, sync sim, verify files, moved stuff around in the scenery index, nothing. I am wondering if this has anything to do with Black Marble? I need to insert my Orbx stuff below my last add on scenery or it doesn't show up correctly, especially Flytampa Las Vegas. Any ideas on how to bring back the lake please? This is is bizarre, I haven't changed anything in my sim..
  5. G'day everyone, After four months of development, I am very excited to reveal to you all my latest scenery project, KEGE Eagle County Regional Airport in Colorado! Designed to blend seamlessly with FTX Global Base, Eagle follows on from the recent Sedona and Palm Springs packages, venturing further north into the heart of the Colorado Rockies and the true American West. This product not only includes a highly-detailed rendition of Eagle-Vail Airport (to use one of its alternate monikers), but also an enormous 1500km2 coverage area, encompassing the towns of Vail, Eagle, Gypsum, Avon, Beaver Creek, Eagle-Vail and Walcott, as well as a fair portion of the Sawatch Mountain Range, including Mount of the Holy Cross (14,011ft ) and Gold Dust Peak (13,380ft). Aside from KEGE, there are three other locations to fly to around Eagle County - "lite" renditions of Gypsum Creek Ranch Airstrip (CO47), Avon STOLPort (WHR) and Vail Medical Center. Avon STOLport is of particular note, as locals may recognise that this airstrip has been shut for many years - this depiction shows it in mid-1980s configuration, although for those seeking a truly authentic experience, this can be disabled via the CP in lieu of the present-day layout. In addition to these landing areas, there are plenty of landmarks and points of interest, including schools, shopping malls, gas stations, factories and others. A couple of bonus extras have been included, such as an animated AI helicopter near Beaver Creek and a train operating out of Gypsum. Finally, expect to find a swathe of different landscapes - from the high altitude rocky outcrops of the Sawatch Ranges to the lush valley floors around the ski resort towns, and from the semi-arid scrublands northeast of KEGE to the rural farmlands surrounding Gypsum - there is an enormous amount to explore within this scenery. KEGE itself is a regional airport located several miles east of Gypsum, Colorado, and hosts five airlines serving destinations across the US and Canada. As much of the airline traffic caters to ski-season tourist, Eagle County is the second busiest airport (behind Denver Intl) during the winter months. In addition to the airline terminal, KEGE lays claim to one of the largest FBOs in the country - Vail Valley Jet Center, which caters to an enormous amount of corporate charter and GA traffic. Lastly, and I believe possibly a first for any of our North American HD airports, is the designated military base - the Army National Guard High Altitude Aviation Training Site. Recently receiving a massive upgrade to its facilities, HAATS is used to prepare ANG helicopter pilots for mountain and high-altitude training experienced in various theatres of operation. These guys have Chinooks, Blackhawks and Kiowas based on-site; the surrounding mountains provide some great terrain to test your helicopter skills. One of the most famous aspects of Eagle County Airport is its dangerous approach and departure procedures - a combination of close-proximity terrain and severe weather phenomena ensure that flights into the airport will test even the most experienced pilots. In particular, the nearby Red Hill mesa almost totally precludes landings from the west - as a result the majority of both arrivals and departures are via rwy25. In addition to the offset ILS (requiring a small turn on late finals), the highly unusual Gypsum Five and Meeker Two departures require careful attention during all aspects of flight into and out of the airport. To add a further consideration to flying characteristics is the airport's high elevation at 6500ft, though the extra length of the runway allows operations for aircraft up to B757 in size. Located a short flight away from Denver Intl and Salt Lake City Intl airports, Eagle County is ideally situated for GA flights into the heart of the Rockies, short commuter flights to other well-known Colorado destinations, and also short-medium regional flights to well known ORBX destinations such as Jackson Hole, Palm Springs and Sedona. As always, I have spent a huge portion of the development process tweaking the scenery for maximum performance, in expectation that it will be used with your favourite resource-heavy airliner or bizjet. I hope these screenshots provide a good idea of what to expect - stay tuned for more updates in the coming week. FEATURES - Ultra-detailed rendition of KEGE Eagle County Airport - Huge 1500km2 coverage area at 30cm and 1m - including the towns of Vail, Eagle, Avon, Beaver Creek, Gypsum and Eagle-Vail, portions of the Sawatch Ranges and several prominent mountain passes and valleys. - Twenty-five unique static aircraft designed for KEGE, including new bizjet, airliner and army helicopter types and variants. - Three additional "lite" landing areas included: Avon STOLport (WHR), Gypsum Creek Ranch (CO47) and Vail Medical Center helipad. - New, updated and unique GSE fleet unique to KEGE - Advanced rendering, ambient occlusion and night-lighting methods used for maximum realism - Custom landclass, vector data, custom seasons file and 10m Holgermesh to ensure maximum fidelity. - Plenty of VFR landmarks and POI to explore including schools, shops, factories, custom bridges and others. - Animated AI helicopter over Beaver Creek and animated train near Gypsum - Full suite of ObjectFlow, PeopleFlow2, TextureFlow and more included - Extensive control panel with options for alternative APX/AI configurations - General Aviation AI Flight Plans included (requires free FTX NA AI to be installed) - Strongly optimised for good performance with complex aircraft types - Designed to blend seamlessly with FTX GLOBAL (Base) in both P3Dv2 and FSX/FSX:SE If you are considering purchasing a copy of KEGE when it is released, it is vital that you update your ORBXlibs to the latest version. Whilst it always important to ensure you have the latest ORBXlibs installed, it is even more so with KEGE as new custom autogen groupings are included - a vital component of the scenery package. As such, if you are looking forward to purchasing KEGE I'd recommend running the following steps: 1. Go to fullterrain,com/support and download the latest version of the ORBX Libraries 2. Once installed, open FTX-Central via the shortcut on your desktop, select a region and press apply. This will cycle and update core autogen files to the latest versions. COVERAGE AREA Enjoy! Jarrad Lastly, these two animated gif's show some of the unique seasonal variations. I was able to have access to two NAIP 1m imagery sources for the mountain areas, so the spring variant shown here utilises actual snowlines from the source material. The airport valley PR shows a slightly different approach to the winter season - whilst snow still blankets the slightly higher elevations quite late into March/April, the valley floor has less (though still noticeable) coverage. A higher-detail shot of the airport during this "late winter" season can be seen in the above shots.
  6. Hello, I have been using ORBX products for a while. Today I flew into KSUZ - Saline County Regional Airport (ORBX Freeware) and experienced the airport elevation issue where the terrain covers the runway. No issue I thought, I landed and exited the sim to run FTX Global Vector AEC tool. However, KSUZ was not listed. I searched KSUZ in my /Prepar3d v4 and the results that came up were ADE_FTX_FTXG_KSUZ, ADE_FTX_FTXG_KSUZ_CVG, and ADE_FTX_KSUZ_objects. This leads me to believe the issue is FTX Global Base related rather than FTX Global Vector. Before I went messing with files and breaking things, I wanted to see if there was an "official" fix for this. I have attached a screenshot below of the airport showing the elevation issue. Thank you all for any help! ORBX Transaction IDs: FTX Global Base - 5aef9f6fbfe38 FTX Global Vector/NA - 5af4ad4dea593 F
  7. My issue is I have now over 10 airports with the Jetway in the sky. I do 90 Percent of my flying in USA. I have verified all my products and ran FTX Global airport elevation and no change just same . Thank you in advance for your help. William
  8. Today we are not going to use a luxurious airline. But who cares, as long as you sit in the cockpit. Or even virtual. "Rotate!" Singapore city to the right (with pure FTX Global, I had the city add-on deactivated for lower VAS/VRAM load). Climbing out into the usual tropical clouds... ... and crossing the Equator about 20 minutes after takeoff. Bali, ... ... and my first view of "Australia v2"... ... at Cape Leveque. In the vast outback there is still the appearance of landclass repetitions. Hours later... over Simpsons desert. And here we descend over Bathurst... ... into Sydney. I had my AI traffic reduced to a minimum, and this worked fine - no performance issues. The unusual, but charming ILS07 approach. Will give a shorter taxi time for the passengers! So here we are, arrived in Sydney to discover Australia again!
  9. Hello, I have just upgraded from FSX SE to p3d and I’m trying to install Orbx FTX global, but when I click install, it just sits for ages and says “scanning”. Earlier today it was nearly done installing threw up a warning that I hadn’t enough memory on the c drive so I deleted some unneeded stuff and re tried it but now it’s stuck “scanning”. Thank you
  10. One of the ORBX scenery entries - the FTXZZ_OLC_FixedAPT file - is spawning buildings over one of my custom sceneries (MYNN - Nassau, Bahamas), as well as other Bahamian airports (it's an entire package that I have). I visited other add-on airports in other countries, and they seem to be unaffected. What exactly is this FTX file responsible for? I've attached two screenshots - one with the file activated (you can see the buildings clipping into each other) and the other screenshot shows how it's supposed to look normally.
  11. Hi, If I remember correctly, when I first installed FTX Global many moons ago, there was a prompt to save the original sim scenery/texture files for FSX/P3D but for the life of me I can not find them on my disk. Is there an easy way to find out where those files are located as I would like to make a backup copy of those files on an external hard disk? I have both FSX and P3D on different flight sim PCs. Thx Mark
  12. Just some Asian (and North American) highlights, without much ado. PIA789 OPKC-CYYZ Baku The beginning of the Caucasus Range Scandinavia Greenland Labrador PIA790 CYYZ-OPLA Ontario Québec Oh no, the yellow flood! Mother Russia. Let's make an awesome turn. What remains of Lake Aral. It could benefit from some Orbx love. The Fann Mountains of Tajikistan. Dushanbe ("Monday"), the capital of Tajikistan. The Hindu Kush ("Hindu Murderer") in Afghanistan. Close to Lahore, the view goes in the direction of Islamabad and the Western Himalaya. Thank you for looking.
  13. Pakistan 789 is two hours into a flight from Karachi to Toronto and experiences a sunrise in the area of the Caspian Sea.
  14. This time we take a look at a rather seldomly looked at airline on a rather seldomly shown route. In Karachi. The baggage is being loaded while we check the fan blades. Pushback... ... and lineup runway 25L. Cruising over India. This should be the coast of Burma. Descent to Bangkok. Don Mueang Airport. We made it to the "Golden Land". ... and leave it behind soon. Only to meet some nasty thunderstorms near Rangoon. No, this is not South America including the Falkland Islands. Thank you for admitting us to the jumpseat, Captain! Down the thunderstorm alley. The weather is a lot nicer over India. It looks quite deserted east of Karachi. Touchdown runway 25R. "What do you mean by 'the jetway looks odd?' Trust me, this is how it's supposed to be." -- "Ahhh!" That's it for today, I hope you enjoyed it!
  15. I installed FTX Global base and Vector (using my FTX Central) on my new system but it appears that it has not installed correctly, as you can see in the screenshots. The screenshot was taken in LSZH where everything was looking way better on my old PC. I already tried to uninstall and do a new reinstall of everything. I also checked my Scenery Library but everything seems to be activated there. Hope someone can help me
  16. Hi, I get blurries in the distance with FTX Global, I can put my terrain settings to max and I still get these issues! I've tried adding TextureMaxLoad=9, TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=9 and all to the CFG to no avail. Nothing works. I'll attach a picture: At EGPF on parking 51, barely zoomed in. Only 4 or 6x. I need to add, I have not only reinstalled the sim countless times, but also windows about 2 or 3 times. This isn't an issue that just started randomly, it's happened ever since I got P3D. My Specs: i5 7500 @ 3.4GHz, GTX 1060 6GB, 8GB DDR4, Sim installed on secondary 1TB HDD. Many thanks! Luke.
  17. Had an enjoyable flight across the pacific, into Vancouver. The 787 is a joy to fly! Loving FTX Global and PNW. Arriving over the Straight of Georgia was breathtaking! I seriously can't wait for TrueEarthPNW!
