  1. I'm not bothered about seasons. mostly fly in area's that have good weather and I use Ortho so seasons would not give me much. Weather for me is most important so I am pinning all my hopes on Active SKy for XP 😉 I think a lot of people don't really realize that it is in essence a small Dev team and there is only so much you can do. It is better not to promise too much and hand out surprises than promise a lot and not deliver. I mean if it was so easy everyone would be building their own flight sim right.
  2. Yes Example from my INI file SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/THE-FAIB Aircraft Library/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/THE-FRUIT-STAND Aircraft Library v2.2/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Vehicle Library Extension/ SCENERY_PACK_DISABLED Custom Scenery/gbpro/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/world-models/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/world-models-0.8.0/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/XAirportScenery/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/------------------------ Ortho -----------------------/ SCENERY_PACK D:\yOrtho4XP_Overlays/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/------------------- Ortho Australia ----------------/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/X-Plane Landmarks - Sydney/ SCENERY_PACK F:\Ortho Torrents\Australia_v1\zz_Ortho_Australia--SydneyHD/ SCENERY_PACK F:\Ortho Torrents\Australia_v1\zz_Ortho_Australia-Western/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/------------------- Ortho Europe --------------------/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/------------ Ortho Europe Finland Estonia ------------/ SCENERY_PACK F:\Ortho Torrents\z_Finland-Estonia/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/------------- Ortho Europe Great Britain -------------/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/----------------- Ortho Europe Spain -----------------/ SCENERY_PACK F:\Ortho Torrents\z_SpainUHDv2_+36-002/ SCENERY_PACK F:\Ortho Torrents\z_SpainUHDv2_+36-003/ SCENERY_PACK F:\Ortho Torrents\z_SpainUHDv2_+36-004/ SCENERY_PACK F:\Ortho Torrents\z_SpainUHDv2_+36-005/ SCENERY_PACK F:\Ortho Torrents\z_SpainUHDv2_+36-006/

    PMDG DC6 and ver 11.25

    RsRandazzo is the only person I know who can fill an A4 with text and not say anything :) Not too bothered myself about PMDG as there are more than enough great developers developing for X-Plane at this time. Just give me decent weather, 😉 come on HiFi!
  4. Well to be 100% they are not baked into the scenery you can (After first having made a backup) 1. Open the Overlay Editor 2. Click Open scenery package icon 3. Select the Global scenery (You can navigate around using shift + arrow keys) once it's loaded. 4. Zoom in to an airport with your scroll wheel 5. If there are aircraft baked in select aircraft and delete. 6. Save the file

    New guy, please help

    Yea what @Bob say's, I use my own Ortho for Europe but Forkboy's is also pretty good for the US.
  6. Hi Bjoern, your question is a tad ambiguous. Compared to what are asking if there is a large frame rate impact? You cannot compare FSX with X-Plane. FSX is 32bit, X-Plane is 64 bit . FSX uses DirectX and X-Plane uses OpenGL. The sim architectures are just so different. Carenado build there models specifically for X-Plane they are not just ported over from FSX as far as I am aware. I would imagine they optimize there models and textures as much aspossible as any good developer should do 😉 What I can tell you is I have a couple of Carenado planes and run X-Plane at 4K on a 50" TV monitor with a GTX1080ti and get good frame rates, way into the high 30's.

    X-Plane Forum Changes

    Aha, I wondered why the forum was empty last night 🙂 I like the change!

    Ortho4XP

    Sorry I'm a bit late replying but I'm glad I could help. Ortho is fantastic once you get it all setup correctly.
  11. No need to re-bond with anything. Pick what makes you happy. Yes there are people who enjoy one more than the other out there (I have learn't to ignore them , on both sides! ) and I know people have time and more importantly money invested in a certain sim but it's your enjoyment of flightsimming what's important, go with the flow! Enjoy X-Plane :)
  12. There are already many failures built into FFA320 they are just not visible in a nice UI format. There is a failure command console you can call up to set any number of failures, probably running into their thousands at this time. Watch some Blackbox711 VOD's on Twitch as he used this method a few weeks ago. FMGC failures / FAC failures / Fuel failures etc...
  13. certainly good news for X-Plane.
  14. You could try deleting your preferences file and restarting. .\<X-Plane Install Folder>\Output\preferences delete X-Plane.prf & X-Plane Screen Res.prf Restarting X-Plane will build new prf files but make a BACKUP of these files first 😉
  15. Maybe you should open a new topic about this and provide more info such as LOG file etc. This topic is about the new European Privacy statement / message that pops up.
