  1. Thank you for all your comments. While I guess my mention of cows is funny, it at the same time shows the lack of focus. This is about flight simulation and you would think more emphasis would be put on making sure the approach and runway lighting system is done correctly and realistically, but instead bird chirps, butterflies and moving cows are allocated precious development time. I cannot ever remember thinking about butterflies or hearing birds chirping while in a cockpit with the engine running. I find it quite disturbing to be in a 737 cockpit with all the windows closed and still hearing birds. For anybody having problems with the above download link, which I think only works well with Chrome. I've uploaded the file here as well now: http://www.multiupload.nl/P56XV2U7A0 This now gives you 8 different download options to choose from. Andreas Aarens
  2. Thank you too for your encouraging words Paul. Yes, it's very frustrating to have spent so much money on add-ons and only see a small minority of developers actually actively support these in DX10. A friend of mine contacted LH Simulations and Taxi2Gate by email to ask about their support for Steve's DX10 fixer, and they didn't even bother to reply, totally disgraceful support in my opinion. I would like to see FSDG fix their Kastellorizo scenery, 29Palms fix Mykonos, Skiathos and Southhampton, LH Simulations to make their LHBP night textures DX10 compatible, and Orbx to work on their product issues, the list goes on... I don't think Orbx have the skills to manage running their development in such a professional manner. They have too many independent developers guarding their own special scenery creation techniques from what I've seen, and rather than creating their own in-house scenery creation bible, they waste precious development know-how to make things like cows move.

  3. Hi all, I have been watching with delight and dismay in how the different developers have reacted to the release of Steve's amazing DX10 Scenery Fixer. Top prize goes to FlyTampa for their immediately available fixes and solutions, as well as their newly released St. Maarten gem. I have to say that I am bitterly disappointed at how some of the most well known and respected developers such as Orbx and 29Palms have handled the DX10 Scenery Fixer release. Many Orbx airports have numerous unsolved DX10 issues, and simple fixes for the grass at Cardiff (EGFF) and Siletz Bay (S45) have still not been given to the community. 29Palms created a wonderful Skiathos X add-on, but this is plagued with shadow problems of some boats and vehicles. Since I am so very tired of waiting for 29Palms to fix one of my favourite sceneries, I spent a few hours today trying to find a solution and have managed to get rid of the boat and vehicle shadows. The fixed files are available here: https://mega.co.nz/#!6VRnTbrR!RwolsU7nWci06R6-YlgcPUGzyc5u2Wtv5WwZXS4aemA The above file is zipped and contains 4 fixed BGL files and the original ones, in case you overwrite them without having a backup. I am a complete novice and it took me all of 3 hours to do this. Shame on you 29Palms for lettings us all down and not taking this into your own hands! Aaren
