Is that the FS9 or the FSX version of Dubai?

I read that the transparency shows if FS9 is converted.

What does the conversion process involve?

1-Install FS9 version of Fly Tampa Dubai payware into FS.

2-Download FS2XPlane freeware tool from http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=24

3- Open FS2Xplane and select MSFS scenery location (Fly Tampa Dubai folder), in addition to Xplane scenery location and then click convert

 

The scenery will convert and place it self in X plane, thats all but the scenery will have few glitches...but overall converts well. I added the AI traffic on the gates via world traffic plugin and Serviced aircraft plugin. Though the ground textures converts fine from the package, i wanted to include a photo real, so i downloaded Dubai Photoreal from Simheaven (unfortunately now the site does not offer photoreals anymore). Thats all...

Also i use Max FX (for color editing) and Sky Max pro for clouds generation... both paywares...Regards

Man those are some of the best screenshots ive seen to date.. go on you

Thanks :)
