Presumably you have the Orbx libraries installed?

I'm surprised you criticise them for lack of support; in my opinion their support is superb. Have you actually posted your query on their forum?

Oh, and it's "would have" and NOT "would of". Twice in six words.....

run  the  aec  correction  tool  since  you got vectors(its all in the manual  that came  with the  addon)

Your best bet is to Google Orbx Support to get a link, then follow their instructions on how to join it.

The problems you are having aren't unique, they will likely have seen them before.

You need to put an Orbx purchase number in your email signature - if you are not sure on that ask on a forum there & someone will walk you through it.

There is a lot of support there, & I have used plenty of it.:biggrin:

I have had another look at your post. 

You will need something called "FTX Central" to make everything else you have run better. & the Libraries

You can get them off the Orbx site. I suggest you look at their "Support" section & follow what it has to say.

Also they have some good Freeware products if you want to branch out from NZ later. NZ is an excellent starting point, one of their best.

Make sure when you are looking at downloading something  [freeware or payware], you check at the bottom of the product page. It will tell you if you need something else to make it run.

Orbx tends to be a "Layer Cake" 

I think getting set up properly then running Vector might fix your problem.

Search the Orbx forums for  the problem you have seen it before.
