  1. Hi all, Some wonderful work on here already ! I was wondering if somebody would consider doing the Hibiscus livery for Malaysia Airlines ? It was a spectacular sight in real life :)
  2. I've been grappling with this since the 747 v3 was released but unfortunately it seems that FSPassengers is simply just not compatible with it. Your best bet is to also post this over at the FSPassenger forum, it can certainly use the added attention. I'm not counting on much support from the developer but hopefully maybe some in the community will eventually find & share another workaround. For now it's reason for me to look into alternatives. I've enjoyed many hours with FSPassengers but i'm probably moving to FSCaptain.

    That was 9M-MRH. Bought for parts & It's now sitting in Phoenix, Arizona.
  4. In a nutshell, yes. Second to fourth messages should all have you look at your current position, flight planning & ETOPS requirements. ETOPS determines the maximum allowable amount of time you get between yourself & the nearest available & suitable airport. This is guided by particualr company certification & standards so this can vary between airlines. Looking at my company, with the APU unservicable or otherwise unavailabe we would be limited to ETOPS 180. If i were to apply that here i would have to ask myself if there are areas coming up where in case of 1 engine failure my nearest alternate airport would be outside of the 180 minutes now still allowed. If that's the case i could not legally continue the flight and would have to divert or return. Something similar happens with FIRE LOOP1 ENG L where i would also be limited to 180 minutes. If FIRE LOOP2 ENG L were to come on that would be reason for an immediate diverison. While people usually think of ETOPS in case of an engine failure degraded fire surpression systems can also place limits on your flight. I'd have to look up what would be associated with the BOTTLE CARGO messages but it would certainly be something to look at.
  5. Also bought Guanghzhou & noticed the same thing. Since Google brought me here (among other results) figured i'd share that the airport is in the APX78230.BGL file, in the airport's Addon Scenery folder. Still changes to be made but i'm getting happier :smile: PS .. so far haven't seen the need to follow the instrutions from the manual. Not sure i can explain why but somehow those seem a bit off to me.
  6. Bump ... i have come across a suggestion to delete the VABB_RWY9_LIGHT.BGL & VABB_RWY14_LIGHT fields. This does fix the elevation problem for me but obviously kills the runway lights in the process. I am not sure (yet?) if i can open and modify these files myself as i have only used ADEX which can not open them and truth be told, i am no expert on BGL files as i really only amend parking spots to my liking. But maybe this is a clue for someone with more knowledge of editing BGL files like these ?
