  1. I am considering my options as well as I rapidly run out of space. I already have a 250GB SSD for Windows and P3D and a 500GB SSD for addons. I am considering a 1TB external SSD purely for Orbx. As long as I use a 3.0 USB port, would I expect any problems having the files on an external drive rather than internal? I am thinking this will future proof things as the drive can just move as other hardware gets replaced.

    Orbx Scenery Question

    Here you go - https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/146877-using-a-symbolic-link-to-move-the-orbx-folder/

    Orbx Scenery Question

    No you can't add Orbx via the scenery library, there must be the ORBX folder in the root folder. However you can use a symbolic link to store your folders elsewhere and provide a link to the root folder. Suggest you sign up to the ORBX forum if not already as the details can be found there.

    FlyTampa vs FSDT performance impact

    If the previews are anything to go by, FSDT Chicago OHare v2 will be the new benchmark in realism. I have a number of both and am very happy with them both, great products are provided by these developers. The posts above are totally correct, it really depends on where you want to fly to and how you manage your system.

    Pro ATC X Pros and Cons

    Okay thanks Jeroen, I haven't used ProATCx for a while, might have to get the manual out again...

    Pro ATC X Pros and Cons

    If ProATC generates the flightplan, how do I then import into the FMC of either the Airbus A319, Ifly 737 or into the default flightplan set-up?

    How to set up a default flight

    From what I recall from FSX, it is pretty similar. Just create your scenario (aircraft, location, time of day etc) and start it. Then turn off the engines, and click save. It will lead you to a new box where you give the scenario and name and there is a big square on the left to activate with a tick to nominate it as your default flight.

    P3D v4.3 Dynamic lighting problem

    It's not so much a Dynamic Lighting problem, more a compatibility issue between Project Airbus and P3Dv4. What is the payware you are having a problem with? If it is FS Labs there is a sub-forum on AVSIM for you to post your problem on. If it is Aerosoft, well the A320 is still awaited, but the A318/A319 has been released which you could consider paying the upgrade fee for.
  11. What's the difference? Both methods allow storage space to be optimised and minimise the time needed to do a full re-install of P3D.
  12. If you do go down the road of re-installing P3D. Next time install Orbx files outside the main folder and use a symbolic link. This will avoid the problem in future and also help with managing your drives. My Orbx file is huge and getting bigger so it is on a separate drive with plenty of room available.

    AI not landing Technobrain's RJTT

    Sorry, for the delay in getting back to you. Glad you sorted it out.

    AI not landing Technobrain's RJTT

    Are they landing and taking off correctly at other airports? This sounds similar to an issue with Radio details not featuring in the aircraft.cfg. However this would effect all airports not just RJTT.
  15. Looking good Henrik, what a cool way to pass the time on a flight, do many fellow passngers enquire what you are doing? Let me know if any assistance with testing is needed whilst you're away from your sim. Ian
