Do you have a scenery add-on containing Liverpool?If yes, try uninstalling it and see if you still get the error.Cheers,- jahman.

Thanks ill try your suggestions and report back.As for liverpool add ons i did download the demo for liverpool extreme by uk2000 scenery. I could not take off from the runway due to the problem above so uninstalled it. Thinking back im not sure if this was the first time i had the error with the add on scenery having installed this demo.

It sounds like a missing scenery file from an addon airport. I had continual problems flying out of Orbx's Brisbane, as did many other guys, until someone suggested it could be a missing file from one of the addon sceneries. I deleted all of the smaller Ozx airfields. Result... sorted!

When you uninstalled Liverrpool did you remove it from the scenery library first ie within fsx.bob

Bob, No, i normally do it through the control panel of win7 and un-install them that way. I have since re-installed liverpool demo and then turned off the genx stuff. I can take off from liverpool uk2000 fine then, but as soon as i turn on the genx stuff it goes again. If i turn off area 1 of vol3 which is over the liverpool area, i can take off and fly into area 2 of vol3 with no problems and with liverpool uk2000 on. If i make a sharp turn on takeoff with the gen x stuff on I can fly north bound without issue, when I then turn due east towards the area it usually crashes I get to the same line along the end of the runway where it would normally crash, only a little bit further north but it still crashes.I have opened a help ticket on the play horizion forum and await an update.

Have you checked the priority level in the scenery libarary ? The GenX should be just below Addon Scenery for best results. Terrain products should always be below Airport addons. Also, when you installed Liverpool, did you check the box GENX installed ? Assuming that option is available in the demo version ? If you have the scenery libaray corrupted or priorities mis placed, you will get lock ups etc. The scenery lib is not very forgiving if things are not done correctly. You must always be very careful when adding and deleting addon scenery. Even automated installs can cock it up.Go to your C:ProgramDataMicrosoftFSX folder and that is where your scenery cfg resides. Open in notepad, and see if things are in order, making certain the entries are in correct numerical order.Steven Greenwood has a great tool that will help you a lot. I use it everytime I install a new addon.Go here:http://home.earthlink.net/~smgreenwood/welcome.shtmlClick on the Resources tab at the top right of the screen which will display to get a short list of his available downloads.This utility makes it simple to keep the scenery.cfg in good order. Be sure to read the documentation carefully.Hope that helps.

So I have re-installed and un-installed Liverpool uk2000 and Manchester UK2000, so now I have even less Champions League trophies. But it still crashes. I have turned off the anit virus and run it in admin mode as suggested by Play horizon with no luck.I can open the scenery.cfg but too be honest im not sure what im supposed to be looking for. There are a number of entries, though what order they are supposed to be in I do not know.I have moved the addon scenery above the terrain and the airports above that, without sucess. I have yet to try the Greenwood link above. I really want to avoid any form of FSX re-install just so ~I can use a tiny area of the UK with photo scenery, so may have to cut my loses and disable area1 of vol3. As FSX seems to be running as well as ever for me and it would be a shame to ruin everything just so I can see a bit of Merseyside. I guess I may even have to locate all 4 edges of the dodge scenery and make sure i always navigate round it :(.EDIT:Just tried the above.cfg programme and still crashes im afrai

Can you PM me your scenery config (copy/paste). I will look at it in the morning for you. It is 1am here, so too late to check it now for you.

Have fixed your scenery config. It may not be the cure, but sure will help. Also, you have FTX enabled for Orbx NZSI, NA and AU. If flying out of thoses areas, you must set to default in FTX control panel. Do not disable in scenery config. If you look at the changes I made, try and keep it like that.

Thanks for taking your time to do this. To be honest I would not know how to disable the FTX stuff in the .cfg. I never touch it....All the best Steve

Steve you did't mention which ver of Gen x you have, however here are two links that may be worth having a look at.bobhttp://www.uk2000sce...hp?topic=6495.0http://www.playhoriz...k/downloads.htm
I have got the updates and this has fixed my issue, thanks to all who anwsered.On a small side note.... Does anyone who uses this scenery know why the generic fsx map turns blue when flying over the scenery area. Or does it do this for any add on scenery pack used. It seems to remove all the terrain detail and it just looks like a blue map with the outline of the UK visible.Aside from that all is well.Thanks to all again.Steve

yes Steve, it is an Issue with gen-x scenery, there is a fix but I'm not sure if it's worth having as the fix alters the coast line appearance.you will have to go to' plan g 'ie Use Plan-G from TA software.bobps it may not help with the gps map but its alot better for flight planning.
