  1. Hi guys, Again, to preface this, I am just in the process of returning to flightsim after a multi-year absence, so maybe I'm missing something painfully obvious. I used to run FS9 back in the days and now on my new rig I'm running FSX-SE. I've been in the process of setting up my sim according to my preferences. My pride and joy of my old FS9 install was the massive amount of realistic AI traffic. So, after installing my favorite addon aircraft and sceneries in my new FSX-SE setup, I started installing all the current AI traffic I could get my hands on, mostly from AIG. I used AIFPv3 to install and made sure the FSX option was checked. Here's the conundrum: I see traffic at KSEA (T2G) and KSAN (LatinVFR). I see GA traffic at ORBX airports (PNW). I see absolutely no traffic anywhere else that I have tried, and that includes EDDF, EDDL, EDDT, LOWW, LSZH, EGLL (all Aerosoft), KJFK, KORD (FSDT), KMDW (FlyTampa), KSFO (Flightbeam), and none of the default airports I've tried. From this I concluyde so far that this does not appear to be an issue with the flightplans themselves or the AI aircraft, as, for example, Lufthansa's daily FRA-SEA flight shows up fine at SEA even though FRA is completely dead; likewise Southwest aircraft show up at SEA and SAN even though MDW is completely dead. At SEA and SAN I see all the airlines I should be seeing, but nothing elsewhere. Is this an AF problem? Don't all these fancy payware sceneries come with proper AFX files? Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Misha
  2. Thanks Airline2Sim. That's helpful.
  3. Thanks, Andy. Those are all very persuaive reasons (and the current $25 price point isn't too bad either). (I vaguely remember highmemfix. Having flashbacks here. Uh oh)
  4. Frank, Sure. The system will be this: AMD FX 6300 3.50Ghz (6-core) 8GB DDR3 Windows 7 NVIDIA GeForce 750 Ti 2GB Certainly not as high end as might be desirable, but will have to do.
  5. Thanks. Can you expand on what the bug fixes and under the hood improvements are? Trying to gauge whether this is worth the investment.
  6. Hi guys, Thanks everyone for the feedback and the kind words. And sorry for my tardy reply. I have a limited budget, so my thought was to use the FSX I have and for which I already have a ton of addons (mostly FSX versions of FS9 addons that I prevoiusly purchased), rather than going the P3D route which would also likely require much more expensive hardware. And, yes, I am not a student, so the pricetag for P3D looks rather steep for me. For those of us who have been living under a rock - i.e. me - what is FSX Steam Edition? What about it is different from the regular FSX? Thanks again! Misha
  7. Hi guys, It's been a very long time.... Some of you may remember me as an avid contributor here in the FS2004 days, made some repaints, beta tested for Aerosoft, etc.... Had a kid in 2010 then my HD crashed and with it my custom FS2004 install. No simming at all since. I would like to return to FSX soon. It never ran well on my old rig, but would like to give it a try now. I found some tips on hardware in the hardware forum. What I would like to know here is what are the must-have add-ons these days for FSX? I would mostly like to fly short airliner hops (1-2hrs) in aircraft with the best visual detail and systems simulation available. Mostly, I plan to fly in Western Europe and the US. So my questions: - What's the best A320? Aerosoft? - What's the best 737NG? PMDG still? - please name the best European and US airport add-ons - any good freeware mesh? - a good basic GA aircraft would be lovely too. Any great freeware? - what's the best weather program these days? - any other basic must-haves? - recommended tweaks and config imrpovements? - is WOAI still the gold standard in up to date AI addons? - is AES still a thing? A lot of questions, I know. Any ones you can answer I would be greatly appreciative. Good to be back. Misha (da Mine - as edetroit used to call me - is that guy still around?)

    Spontaneous Reboots

    Seems to be an AES problem. Happens with any aircraft on the ground on an AES-activated airport. http://www.commerciallevel.com/base/suppor...46supporter.jpg

    Spontaneous Reboots

    No. It happens only in the above situations. There is no blue screen or anything. I can use the internet for hours or do extensive photo editing for hours and nothing goes wrong. It's clearly a very specifc FS issue. http://www.commerciallevel.com/base/suppor...46supporter.jpg

    Spontaneous Reboots

    Hi there,As of recently, my computer spontanesouly reboots in the middle of my FS session. This often happens while I am programming the FMC on the Wilco/Feelthere 737, but it has also happened mid flight with teh CS 757. It usually happens while in the 2D cockpit manipulating some gauges. It does not happen on VFR flights, even with complex aircraft such as the Cloud9 Phantom. Any suggestions for eliminating this problem welcome. Thanks in advance. http://www.commerciallevel.com/base/suppor...46supporter.jpg

    Somebody changed my textures!

    >Is the UT Ind/Commercial Lancdclass set also deactivated in>your scenery.cfg ?>I suggest to deactivate every Scenery addon within your>scenery.cfg one by one until you see from where this textures>comes.

This is city center, dense urban/European. Deactivating individual addons will not be of any use, because the texture and agn file for this is in the main texture folder. This is showing up all over Europe irrespective of addons. http://www.commerciallevel.com/base/suppor...46supporter.jpg

    >Hi,>>FS2004 CD2 MSGAME3.CAB: all the textures from the main TEXTURE>folder>FS2004 CD4 SCENERY/WORLD.CAB all the textures from your main>Scenery/World/Texture folder>>If you extract those in their respective directories, all will>be back to default.>>All the best!>RobThanks, I am aware of that. But since I use replacement textures for some of the stuff in that folder, I didn't want to simply overwrite everything. I was hoping someone here would know how to pinpoint the exact texture (and presumably agn file) I am looking for. http://www.commerciallevel.com/base/suppor...46supporter.jpg

    I have UT, but this isn't the industrial/commercial landclass. The "add detailed commercial building areas" option is deactivated anyway. This now shows up all over European city centres, including areas where UT is deactivated (e.g. Scenery Germany 3 & 4) and I haven't changed a thing in my UT configuration. The UT industrial landclass looks different.http://www.commerciallevel.com/base/suppor...46supporter.jpg
