Orbx Releases Cityscape Honolulu for Prepar3D v4

Solution:
In the folder containing the 3 files, create a blank file called DONTUPDATE without any file type extension, e.g. xxxxxx.txt

How you achieve this no extension (in case you don't already know) is to open the Windows Notepad program (or similar) and save the blank file using Save As with the name "DONTUPDATE". Use the quote marks in the file name to prevent a file suffix from being added.
Place this file in every folder that you don't want FSDT's Live Updater to touch.

You don't want to do that because there are other FSDT files for PHNL that will need to be updated as FSDT improves them. Just remember to adjust the 3 files every time you run the FSDT update.

What about any FSJ scenery for Oahu? Their extra content scenery folder has all sorts of additional files that can cause issues on the Island.

I finally got it working.  I uninstalled then reinstalled all of my addons.  Now, for some unclear reason the scenery works fine.  Must have been a corrupted file somewhere.  

Thanks for your help.

Yes, this information is in the Orbx Honolulu manual too as that is the first thing I always read before using a product....

Yes the ORBX config does not touch the 3 additional files that need to be turned off!

 

The config exempts FSDT PHNL AFCAD automatically if selected but does not aleter the theee additional FSDT .BGL files in the aforementioned folder.  These still need to be marked as .OFF after every FSDT Live update and is specifically stated so in the ORBX manual for their Honolulu cityscape.

Hopefully FSDT can amend their live update to do this automatically if Orbx Honolulu is installed...

 

Just to clear confusion for those considering purchase.

Did you have the known black night tiles showing up during the day?

 

Its a well known ORBX issue with a corrupted install and is fixable by deleting and reinstalling ORBX Vector LC and/or NA LC.

 Agreed, it takes less than a minute to do which is FAR less time than running the live update and doesn't need to get done all that often.

Glad to see this.  I'll be buying it for certain.

A few years ago I posted a thread wondering why no one had taken on the Hawaiian Island Chain - it's been one of my favorite areas to fly in since Level-D's 767 first came out.

I wish there was a Hawaiian Airlines Livery for PMDG's 737....even though HA went the Airbus route instead several years ago.

So I'm seeing lots of different information right now regarding the FSJ Extra Content Scenery folder. Has anyone found the need to disable any files in this folder? @DannyR you indicated you just reinstalled the the FSJ package.

Orbx did a great job indicating what the files were in the Oahu island folder that needed adjusted and even the airport packages folder, but not so much the Extra Content Scenery folder. Looked at the forums on FSJ and they haven't been updated in quite some time. Any tips from folks here in the forums?

I do not think Orbx has any obligation to tell you what files need to be disabled for a freeware product like the FSJ package.  I think someone provided info about the package and you can download it and install it or not.  I did not install FSJ.  You might want to adjust the insert point in your FTX settings so that FSJ is above the other FTX scenery though.

My apologies @Jim Young I was not trying to suggest that Orbx was required to provided technical support for FSJ. I meant my comment as complimentary to them for including what files needed to be disabled in the Oahu FSJ island folder and Hawaiian Airports folder. I was more seeking clarification from the community here if there were any additional files that anyone discovered in the Extra Content Scenery folder from FSJ that needed disabled. 

Orbx stated that there are potentially files in the folder that need disabled, however some users are saying its not necessary to disable anything. Just seeking clarification as to people's experiences 🙂

Search for Ian Besemer / PMDG in the AVSIM library.

Thanks!  Actually found this a few hours ago before reading this here just now.  The Hawaiian (fictional) 737 livery looks good!

Just purchased the Cityscape Honolulu - but I get a message saying "There are no downloads for this product" though.  I guess I'll pull down FTX Central 4 and see if that resolves this issue.   Also couldn't find the disk space requirements after a couple of google searches but I think I'll be OK.

I simply disabled the entire FSJ - Hawaii Extra Contents as well as the FSJ - Hawaii Photoreal Vol. 1 - Niihau, Kauai & Oahu v.0.99 folders. The extra content folder has all sorts of files that pertain to Oahu. Just keeps it simple.

I didn't change more than in the manual. I'm not a local, but apart from a few minor auto-gen issues, it seems to be fine, even with extra content.


Best regards, Dimitrios
