  1. My guess is the sensitivity level. I played around with that once and had a similar experience. I eventually got it right. chris
  2. I’ll have to try out UK2000 website. I do have their freeware airports (the older ones. Hans, thanks for your comments also but yes I’ve been doing what you have. Just seems there are only about six third party airports that have the quality of static objects I like to use. All other sceneries I’m unable to use as they are not usable with the abacus ez program ( they just don’t show up or are outside the area of use, or multiple objects are grouped together unseparateable.) it would be nice if there was someone out there that created good quality objects available for purchase. Would be nice also if with purchasing a payware airport they would make objects in those sceneries available to be used in adding more “eye candy” to those airports if so desired, even if it meant making the objects available only to that specific area (airport). When I add to third party airports (payware and freeware) I like the airport to look as it would during it’s busiest day/time of the year. Worked on the ramp at Ted Stevens Intl airport up here in Anchorage Alaska for a couple years and it was great when the airport was busy. thanks, Chris Porter
  3. With all of the freeware and payware airports I use for every one I will use abacus EZ Scenery and static aircraft maker (SAMM) to add objects such as static aircraft extra tugs, stair trucks, belt loaders, baggage carts etc. Many of these objects I use from existing airport sceneries (if able or format correct) but also from existing libraries like ez scenery etc that I have found on avsim, flightsim etc. Now I stress I do this for my own personal use only, I wouldn’t put any of my additions or changes out there on the internet without permissions from original authors. Having said that I have found that there are not a whole variety of static objects mentioned above. I know there are programs such as gmax out there but I already spend a lot of time using the objects I already have and just don’t have the time to spend learning those programs let alone the time creating payware like objects that I can insert into fs. Does anyone know of anyone who does create these type objects that could be purchased? After the editing of some 150 airports it would be nice to have additional objects to choose from. ‘thanks, Chris Porter
  4. Answered my own question. Awesome scenery-11 incredible airports to add to my collection. chris porter
  5. With all those free addons and installation, which order in terms of priority should I have all these in? thanks, Chris Porter
  6. I like to add scenery objects such as aircraft, stair trucks, beltloaders etc using ez scenery. Problem is when I add scenery and either exit fs, or sim crashes while adding, then I start back up to add more scenery in overhead view—at a certain distance what I added, or what the author added to an airport—disappears, only to reappear when I change views. It can be frustrating trying to add items such as cones on the ground at wingtips as I can’t get close enough on the overhead view to place them accurately. Wondering if there is a solution to fixing this or not. Chris Porter
  7. looks like it was closed down, is there somewhere else i might get that scenery? Chris P
  8. Tried going to the site for the freeware sceneries but the page is no longer. Anyone know where I can get them now?
  9. Hi all, I currently fly the pmdg 737-900 and at idle N1 shows 21%. Is this accurate? Having a difficult time taxiing with my ch products flight sim yoke keeping my speed down. With very, very slight movement with my throttle I can jump from 21% to 40%. I’ve played with the controls sensitivity/null settings but I’m not getting what I want which is to have more range as I throttle up. Hope this makes sense. Chris Porter
  10. When I turn the runway turn off lights on and off nothing happens. When I turn on the taxi lights the runway turn off lights turn on As well. Any thoughts? thanks christopher porter
  11. So I’m lined up on a runway and look at my inboard display which shows I am in fact on it but that the runway heading is off 3-5 degrees. I get this all the time. Anyone have this problem? thanks, Chris Porter

  13. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had any flight charts for CYWG. The only ones I can find online are from Back before 2008. The airport I have i downloaded a short time back for fs9 and the charts and airport diagram I have for the airport don’t match up very well at all. As of now I am using a screenshot from Google Earth of the airport for taxi purposes. I just did a flight into the airport yesterday for runway 18 and the approach givenOn the chart I have and from my FMC help me coming in at an angle. Anyways, if anybody can provide some new charts I would appreciate it. Thanks Chris chrisporter41@gmail.com

  15. lets say that i get a new computer, i've made a backup as shown here, then copied and pasted the backup onto the new computer. I get that all the payware programs and sceneries would need to be re-installed but in that copy and paste of my backup all my payware programs are pasted as well. I imagine that the payware programs pasted wont just work (as has said here in the forumn) and that i would need to a re-install of that payware. Now, If i re-install the payware, are there conflicts and if so, will i get the option to merge folders, being able to "dont copy" same name files? The reason i ask is that i have made changes/modifications to just about all my payware sceneries and programs. Also, is it strange that my fs9.cfg is located in C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FS9? I noticed my scenery cfg is there as well as my aircraft folder. If so when I copy and paste into a new computer, should i paste cfg into the same place (C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft/FS9) or in C:\Flight Simulator 9 folder where i thought it was supposed to be in? thanks, Chris.
