FTX-Global....Fantastic!

Recommended Posts

You can back these up onto an external drive if you have one.

Ok, but which files are affected?

I sure hope with that massive amount of textures being put into/overwritten fsx during install that you all are doing a defrag

Hooray!  Hooray!   We are back at 28-29 FPS!

 

Mitch, so what do you recommend.  Should I be uninstalling GEX first?  How about UTX, do I need to change it's status to Inactive first maybe?

ORBX GLOBAL has made FSX world-wide, grown up. 

 

 

A happy GLOBAL customer.

I agree, the best FSX/P3D Scenery payware ever made :ph34r:  :Party:

Wow - reading all the positive reviews on here makes me wonder whether I should drop the bomb and get it....

 

 

....probably will. :happy:

I went into my scenic library and found that some UT files (landclass UTX) had been rewritten BELOW anything ORBX, Global or regional. I spent the time to bring everything up before any ORBX product, and then rebooted, did a fast defrag, and fired up my FBO. I'm now back to pre-Global Install....29 FPS!

What do you mean "bring everything up before any Orbx product"? I have UTX so I want to know what you did. Can you please copy/paste how that part (just the Orbx and UTX section) of your cfg looks here?

You don't need to tweak anything in your scenery library.

You can get these UTX, FsGlobal Ultimate but not GEX - global takes care of that.

 

I use UTX - FSGENESIS - GLOBAL

Yah this is weird I think Global is suppose to be at the top of the list - UTX way below ?

Orbx, you did your magic once more....and please....give thought to XPX,...what a great thing you could achieve on that platform in 64 bit.  Give it serious thought.....with thanks.

Don't spend the time re-arranging your scenery library.  Get the free program SceneryConfig Editor 1.1.0.  You can re-arrange your scenery library in 5 minutes with it.

I agree that FTX would be doing themselves and us a favor by converting FTX Global to X-Plane 10/64bit, but I doubt if they will listen.

I, for one, would buy it again.

I think he means to move FTX Global down in priority within your scenery library, so that the UTX landclass is toward the top, probably putting your airport scenery on top of that.

I think Global needs to be above UTX - correct me if I am wrong

 

Official directions:

 

openLC Scenery Library Entries

The openLC included with FTXG is contained in two initial folders inside the ORBX folder:
FTX_OLC\FTX_AA
FTX_OLC\FTX_EU1
These folders represent the base openLC folder (FTX_AA) and the first Europe folder (FTX_EU1) which contains
the Baltic States openLC demo. When you add more openLC products, more folders will be added to the
ORBX directory and also the Scenery Library.
If we look at the Scenery Library menu (FSX shown below; select Settings | Scenery Library) in this example we
can see two new entries added after the FTX Global installation. These entries are NOT tied to any Orbx FTX
folders like before, meaning you can move them up or down as you wish. This will allow our openLC landclass
to work in conjunction with other third party landclass products.
The simple rule to remember is that the highest priority in the Scenery Library always takes precedence, so if
you want a particular landclass product to override openLC or other products, just move it higher in the
Scenery Library.
IMPORTANT: You must always place the ORBX!OPENLC_BASE folder below all other ORBX!OPENLC* folders in
the scenery library, otherwise the fixes to SE Asia, Greece, Spain etc will not work correctly.

GEX replaced your default FSX textures with more optimized better performing textures.  This is why it is not in your Scenery Library.  I believe FTX Global will be listed in your Scenery Library which indicates it is standing alone and will trump out any default or GEX textures.

Jim

XPX is just too different in how it works. They don't use city tiles at all for example and autogen is based on vector data and not the texture tiles.

 

It's apples and oranges.

According to JV, the priority of UTX over FTXG in scenery library is unnecessary. He actually advised to move up just and only two of the FTXG SL entries to the top for the time being.
