What an AWESOME New Years gift

Recommended Posts

Hi, all.

 

Just wanted to report that I am enjoying Flight with the complete world converted!  What an amazing enhancement!!

 

Steps I followed:

1.  Installed FSX:SE fresh

2.  Installed v1.1.1 of the Flight Toolkit (non-GFWL profile)

3.  Ran the FSX Scenery conversion

4.  Used Add-on Manager to install World Region UI and also FSX World

5.  Reboot

 

It works perfectly!  I am flying over my home area in Southern Florida, and also my old stomping ground of NYC.

 

Many thanks to Steve (Stonelance), Kavinda J.D, and all the other helpful folks in this forum :)

 

Happy New Year!

-Bob

Do you mean Flight as in Microsoft Flight? Or did you convert scenery to FSX:SE? I don't understand what you did, but I would like to!

 

Cheers,

Sascha

Microsoft Flight.

 

We can now convert FSX scenery to be used in Flight.  Read the posts in this forum on how to do it.

 

Thanks Stonelance.

Be nice if someone made a video showing it in action.

Does anyone know a good tool to capture such videos?

I'd like to offer my thanks to Steve 'Stonelance' also.

 

I purchased FSX from the Christmas Steam sale hoping to make up something from the demise of Flight. Instead it just made me miss Flight more.

 

Last night I converted the FSX scenery and saw it in Flight for the first time. Wow! Amazing!

 

Great work!

Absolutely Amazing! You folks are truly wizards! I ran the conversion on Windows 8.1 Pro 32 bit on a system using Core Duo Extreme 9650 running at 4.0 Ghz and it took approximately 45 minutes. Did not use the Dovetail steam but the regular SP2 Acceleration clean install. Installed the World Addon and added the 1.1.2 Flighttool kit and fired it up. About 2 minutes later the entire world showed up! Landed at a small airport in New Jersey for test. Just can't believe this is happening. Many, many thanks for all the work!!!!!!!

Interesting.  Can you still get Microsoft Flight?  I thought MS removed it.

How does it run compared to FSX? 

It runs - well - very smooth. So far I have only had one crash with the the converted FSX world

scenery data in Flight, and that was in Tokyo.

Thanks - great advice. To test it, I recorded this little flight session sightseeing over London

Same here, I had a little hop around the world. When I jumped to Tokyo it crashed out.

Looking good mibmab!

Meanwhile ... still trying to get the Scenery working here...  -_-  Not seeing the tower bridge!

The Tokyo crash is annoying. I hope to grab some time this weekend and isolate the problem. I'm guessing it's one of the objects, but we also had crashes caused by poor airport coding in FSX, and that could also be an issue. It's just a matter of elimination, but time consuming to track down.

 

Once I find the BGL, then Steve can either omit it in a future version of the toolkit, or fix it if he thinks it's needed.

Oh, I already have a fix for it.  I just need to package up a new installer.  It was caused by the bridges that had some incorrect LODs in the FSX models (as hinted at by the content errors log).

The problem is that I'm not getting a crash. I'm just not seeing some landmark models. Steve could this be related to incorrect LODs?

Hi.  Today, I took another laptop I had, did a brand new install of FSX:SE, and converted it to Flight.  All went perfect.

 

Kavinda J.D, even though the batch file I used for the conversion specifies a log file (/l switch) no log file got created.  This is the same as my other PC, and why I haven't been able to upload it to you.

 

Thanks!

Kavinda, maybe but I doubt it.  Is there any other hints in the content errors log?


Bob, a log file is always created in %localappdata%\Flight Tools\Flight Toolkit.  The /l option just allows you to override the name\location.  Maybe that is broken but the other logging shouldn't be.

      Well the only other clues in the log is just a bunch of missing assets as well as some textures - nothing about a missing model or LODs:

  1. Should I try installing FSX under the root of my main drive and try again?
