When to use Orbx Open LC NA

Recommended Posts

I have Orbx Global base and Global vector installed along with Open LC NA plus add on scenery.  if I want to use an add-on scenery such as SCAL, NCAL, etc.,  should Open LC NA be disabled or made active also, if not using any add on scenery then do I use all three, Global base, Global vector and Open LC NA

Using PD3v4

Thanks

FTX Central 3 places everything in the Scenery Library correctly.  When it installs your ORBX products it reads your scenery.cfg and "sees" what ORBX products you own, then configures the Scenery Library correctly.  You no longer are required to configure FTX Central for World or Regions.  Easy, peasy... FTX Central 3 will install and organize everything for you!

Have fun!

Thanks Greg for your reply. I am using Scenery Config to deactivate any add on scenery for areas I am not flying in,  my understanding is that by selecting only the Add on scenery for the current area iin Scenery Config It will reduce the demand on my system. If that is a correct assumption then my original question still is when is  NA LC is used?

Thanks

I saw the responses to your questions, but let me give you the shortest and most direct answer: Leave your previous ORBX installs as is, and simply add the extra adds ons as necessary, with ORBX you can't go wrong!   The installers organize it as required.

Thanks Mark

My understanding is that if you have all your Orbx products installed under the umbrella of FTX Central 3, and fly inside one of the Orbx NA regional scereries that has its own custom landclass, then OpenLCNA will not be active within that region - but will still be present outside of it.

In other words, as others mentioned, you don't really have to do anything to activate or deactivate. At least not where Orbx is concerned.

Thanks to all who take the time to reply, as you can see I am confused about the use of the Scenery Config Editors use to reduce the workload on my computer. Should I use it, if so what is the proper way to do so, just activate add on scenery for the area I intend to fly in?

Thanks for your patience in taking the time to help a very senior simmer.
