Question On ORBX Landclass Download?

Recommended Posts

It is a zoo over at ORBX forums. I have posted a message with updates but no responses. So a simple question: Although it took all day I downloaded 4 files. From them I extracted 21 data files (512kb each) a setup.exe file . The #21 was actually 49kb.

 

Over at the P3D forum I was told that I should of had 7 files a setup, MSI and CAB files.

 

Which is correct?

It's 21 files at 512 MEGA (not KILO) bytes each. The last one might be smaller yeah.

You should be good to go...make sure they are all in the same folder and run the .exe.

For further confirmation, I'm seeing what you're seeing - 4 downloads that exploded into:

 

21 data files and 1 exe installer, 10.3 GB total size.

For OpenLC NA It is 21 data files and the installer.

Just extract them all and place together in one folder. Then run the installer as administrator.

 

 

Edit: 4 answers while I typed, Wow, You guys are fast!!

Cheers.

Yes.

 

You can also install it over the previous OpenLC NA (Alaska & Canada) no need to uninstall it.

(They even asked not to uninstall previous OpenLC NA setups)

I will try again. Wish I knew how my original scenery.cfg was recovered just in case it fouls up again.

 

Anyhow thanks for the prompt responses.

I now have the Orbx Landclass product installed. The process was messy. As with a lot of these things you are trying this and that so when success arrives it is not clear where the magical solution came from.

 

If Orbx has published a list of the 4 expected file sets, and a scenery.cfg that showed the results of a successful install, it would have helped and reduced the amount of confusion. Without this I was told to expect 7 files and some were CAB files. Not correct.

 

Now that I have it. I see some differences but not anything I would call a "gushing" experience. Comparisons to Bing and Google maps bring the landscape closer to reality but with customer input they should, and will, get closer.
