Thanks for the heads-up.

 

I found the first pack would nicely install even into default scenery. Definitely a valuable freebie for FTXG-lers and non-FTXG-lers.

I had serious elevation problems with Pack 1 :(  (Van Nuys sitting in a huge abyss!).....  I believe this may be because I use FS GLOBAL (terrain add-on).

 

Anyone else using a global terrain add-on along with FTXG and these airports, and seeing (or not seeing) this problem?

I wonder why the freeware airports have not been made available within the Freeware section of the ORBX site?

So where do you get these?

Thanks! 

 

I just flew from Prescott to Sedona the other night.  Brought back memories of driving through the windy roads from KPRC to there.

Dave, the 2nd pack includes a patch for KVNY; maybe that one also helps with your issue?

Yes thanks, going to check that out mate :smile:

 

PS... I've got a great payware flight video of a flight from Denver to Telluride in a B350... :cool:

 

I'd recommend it to any fans of mountain flying!   http://www.flightsimstore.com/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=73&products_id=413

Do a check approach and landing into Sedona (KSEZ) at dawn with Bloom and Flare on.....did this morning...and oh man....LIFE IS GOOD!  The approach to land on the mountain top was brought to myself by Technicolor....well, REX Extreme,Opus,Shade, Bloom, and Flare.

Mitch, what are we gonna do with you! ...... I'm only joking mate, you're dead right. I'm not quite back with you on DX10 but I have got some pretty special ENB settings going at the moment in DX9, and have some pretty magical stuff going in. :smile:

Same..you have to run the FS Global flattening tool. I think a lot of airports look absolutely ridiculous since installing FS Global 2010

Hi Dave,

 

Actually, I'm back to running FSX in DX9 mode. If you hadn't read on one of my other threads, something (dunno..)happened with my FSX install, that since installing and playing around with the DX10 Fixer, I am getting the same performance results under DX9, that I had with post install (Steve...) DX10. So...my comment regarding KSEZ was under DX9. Great stuff, these complimentary airports from our friends at Orbx...a great return to their customers, and others downloading them to a non-FSX Global texture cover.

ORBX picked those airports carefully: Default scenery (no FTXG) around them is particularly ugly!

Thanks, Dave. At EUR 11 for 78 min and a download size of less than 1 GB this comes close to a no-brainer ...
