    Help getting realism in FSX.

    I'll try to find one of those two. I am sure the FS2Crew will be going on mine. I am looking forward to the big planes. My son has no intentions of going into the big jumbos. If it was me I would do that and have a personal plane also then I would get to fly most of the time but I'm probably too old to become an airline pilot. So I'll just have to wish and play like it. What about traffic 360 is that any good?

    Ok I have fixed the problem with DFW airport. Installed FS Global all areas FSGenesis USA FTX global and vector. Between REX 4 and Rex essential OD I am starting to think OD presents a more realistic scenario. My sons pc needs a motherboard and processor upgrade so I am waiting for that to get here. If any one knows how to make the lights in FTX global vector smaller less glaring it would be great to know how. I have to say I am so impressed words can not explain. From basically flight sim 2004 to this I am astounded. Two questions. One how can I make FTX lights less bright and large? What are the different addons that make people in the plane talk and what program do you use to talk to the towers? Like in real life when you pass from one towers control to another and landing? Is that possible?
  3. Oh sorry for the trouble fixed the problem.
  4. I need to see if anyone can help. I have FTX Global & Vector also FSgenesis installed and tried to add FSDreamTeam DFW and GSX. I could not get either one to work. Now I have removed them and it seems ok. My question is this. I am not sure if the (AFM) aerodrome flattening meshes will help or if I am better off going to GEX UTX or FSglobal. Maybe a combination of some items but if it's a combination I do not know how to do that yet. I need to try making sure add on items are as compatible as possible. This needs to be for the US. The DFW worked but I was extremely far below where they were set. I was looking up at lights and taxi ways that were 10's of feet above me. In advance I will just say thank you to all those that have helped and will help in this portion of my adventure.

    I finally put the specs for my sons pc in my profile. Mine is not listed yet. I did buy him an A2A Cessna 172 Trainer. I think it's not the hardware but it is older. I7 quad core 9650 3ghz 8gb ram gtx 480 sli but not when on the sim. Realism in scenery and whatever it takes to fly the plane. But the scenery I think is ok for now. I can't buy him a whole new computer. After all I am having to pay for school. Dreamteam sent an email this morning saying they think it's one of the other programs. I can believe that. But why until it was installed was it fine then after it was removed it was fine again? I am a little suspicious of FSGenesis. That does the elevations. But again it's fine without the add on and the GSX never worked. I think the trainer for now is good for planes. I will add as he moves up. Is there anything else that would be helpful? My mistake he is not even allowed to land at DFW!! Dear old dad is not very knowledgable.

    I turned DX10 off and removed both FSDT GSX and DFW. It seems fine now. I also set display to default. the biggest offender I think was FSDT.

    I was trying to do that earlier but I can't get it to finish it just sits there. I went and did the http://imgur.com/65F3Z7d http://imgur.com/dKcuI9w It is still not letting me add the picture or link. Maybe this will work.

    I am going to try posting a picture of two problems. One is the black squares I think its missing a texture. The other is DFW with GSX. You will see that but I can try explaining. I am either in canyons or like the picture lots of invisible stuff. It might take a little while to figure out how to put them in gallery but hopefully in a little while I will have them. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_rGe_9vlU7pTmlrWkxaODlDUGs/edit https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_rGe_9vlU7pR2JpNjk4MjQ5UDA/edit I guess I am behind the times. I hope this is ok I am not able to get this stuff to transfer to the website. These are linked to the pictures. But I have had to do it in google chrome???

    First I like Windows 8... For playing around!!! :rolleyes: Second I wish I had known about REX the person that sold it to me I guess made some extra bucks. DX10 seemed better looking to me but on my son's no such test will be performed. I was testing on mine first. I may keep playing with mine but not his. So should I not have both REX4 and REX plus with OD installed with ASN? I want ASN so what should I do about REX?

    Ok it happens now on both DX9, DX10. It was not there at all until I turned on DX10 and the problems started. I the tried the fix from avsim not much changed. Is there a repair maybe or has it corrupted something? This is on an addon plane I really like Beechcraft D-18 maybe I could just recopy the texture.

    Rick I will tell my son to look into AOPA. I am having some trouble with DX10. Everything has gone fairly smooth. FSGenesis, FTXGlobal, REX4, ASN REX Esentials +OD. I have a couple of issues. I will have to find a way to get ASN and REX4 & +OD working correctly that may not be too big. But I can not use DX10 in any way without the black standing squares. I am sorry I will try to explain between buildings houses there looks like a texture is missing. I can only say it is standing black squares. I think either a texture is missing or corrupted on top of that one of my planes now has Flight Simulator X across the DASH!!!! OH and that is why I have not gotten back until now. I thought I could fix those and no such luck. One other question are both REX4 and REX Essentials plus OD needed together?

    Someone did answer about the files. I installed the FTX global and have black boxes in some places they seem to be in a pattern like something is blocked or turned off. I did turn on DX10 preview. I am not getting too much flash but I am on a little local air field without much scenery and no runway lights. Active Sky Next and REX both purchased but I am not to that point yet. I am little slow at this. I am trying to get it right without too many mistakes. The block boxes had to do with DX10 preview turned it off no more problems. So is it best to leave DX10 alone? Is there a fix?

    I am going to get the FTX global going first see how things are. Slowly I will add in ASN REX some regions possibly. I used to live in the northwest so I can actually enjoy that section. UTX if it happens will have to be after I am much more comfortable. Then I will add GNS 530 VOX and Ground services. I already had one of those fun little crashes with nothing but FSX. :rolleyes:

    Sportsfan I have already bought FSgenesis is it similar? You get credit also I do not know if I gave you any I don't want to miss anyone. This is really nice that UTX and FTX global work together. I have seen several videos and the ones I like the most have both in the mix. I need to ask something else Active Sky Next and OpusFSX can they be installed at the same time or can they be removed to test the other? I am going to get both and see what looks and feels the best. I just had an idea. I don't know if this will work. Can I copy the FSX folder to a place on the hard drive before I start the installation? That way if something goes really wrong I can just drop it back in place fresh?

    So you are a pilot Dickens? Lucky boy smart to make your own decision. I was a little concerned asking the questions I needed answered. Thinking I would get brushed off. I wish I had gotten on and asked more questions several years ago. But there was a lot more code writing then. I am going to get back tomorrow or Saturday and let you all know how it goes.
