  1. What you have looks good. I tried the GAIST MSFS addon but it did not work on the marina boats (unless I had it installed wrong). MSFS needs a global solution for boats. Just having a few in scattered ports all over the world is not the best solution.
  2. Boats in marinas and parked at docks are just 2 dimensional white shapes most of which appear to be under the water. Docks along the water on lakes and rivers also appear to be under water. Is this just the way it is or do I have some other problem I need to deal with. See the picture below. https://ibb.co/rbSShWv
  3. I now have the latest update installed correctly and because I got tired of getting the message about moving my community folder, I moved it. Turns out it reinstalled everything in the Official folder too and I had to manually put all the addons in the community folder. Because it also downloaded everything in the Official folder too It took all night but the problems I was having with that message about moving the Community folder and the Packages Out Of Date message and message about my bandwidth not being sufficient to stream scenery and the data switch turning off are all now apparently fixed. I have flown about 4 hours with 3 different planes in various parts of the world and haven't seen any of those troublesome messages.🙂
  4. It is true the update is "only" 17.1 GB but I got tired of getting the message saying that I needed to move my Community folder so I did. The reason it went to 172 GB is because it also downloaded everything in the Official folder too. It took all night but the problems I was having with that message about moving the Community folder and the Packages Out Of Date message and message about my bandwidth not being sufficient to stream scenery and the data switch turning off are all now apparently fixed. I have flown about 4 hours with 3 different planes in various parts of the world and haven't seen any of those troublesome messages.🙂
  5. I have eight 3rd party addons some aircraft and some airports. All of these are loaded into my community folder. They all show up in Content Manager but are tagged as uninstalled. I just took a flight in one of the planes (FlyingIron Spitfire) and it was working just fine. Maybe they have always shown as uninstalled, but if that's true I just noticed it. Is it like it should be or do I need to do something? Thanks
  6. Is it possible to stop an update once it starts downloading? This thing wants to download and install 171.83GB
  7. Tonight when I started up the sim to practice landing the Spitfire I got this message. RELEASE NOTES 1.15.7.0 Some packages in your community folder may not have been updated and as a result, may have an unexpected impact on the title's performance and behavior. Please move your community packages to another folder before relaunching the title if you suffer from stability or long loading times. I currently have my community folder on my E: drive where I also have MSFS located. The community folder is here E:/MSFS PACKAGES. The main MSFS program is also on the E: drive. The E: drive is a 1TB NVMe SSD. When I first installed the sim I was installed on my C drive which is a 500GB SSD and was running out of space so I reinstalled it on the E: drive and moved my community folder to the E: drive also. Why does it want me to move it again? and to where?
  8. April 13th, Tuesday afternoon I got the notice to download and install the latest update 17+ GB. The Packages Out Of Date issue is still occurring. Has anyone else run the update and if so what were your results?
  9. Has anyone else installed the update from Tuesday April 13 and noticed any changes in the Out of date packages message? The update was 17+ GB and it didn't change my situation at all.
  10. Right after I left this forum yesterday I started up the sim and got the new update. I downloaded and installed that then started up the sim. After flying for several minutes I got that Packages message again. And it has happened a few more times since then. So it doesn't look like the update did any good for that. Still looking for a solution. I guess I will try some of the offered fixes I have seen
  11. I guess I will wait for the update and see how it goes. I have not checked to see if I still have a logbook. I will look shortly, if not I may have a backup. My logbook was full of word not allowed anyway. I wish there was an app to edit the logbook.
  12. Your packages are out of date. In order to get the necessary updates and go online, you will be returned to the sign in screen. Do you wish to continue? If I say yes it does not go to the sign in screen. It restarts and looks for updates like it always does but does not find any. And continues to start up. At some point later I will get that message again. This has been going on for about a week now. Does anyone have any ideas about how to cure it? Thanks.
  13. About a week ago I decided to try out the headphone mode again but could not get any sound through the headphones. I had tried it out when I first got the sim and it worked then. Now it doesn't. There is nothing wrong with the phones. Youtube vids and music sound fine. When I go into options and put on the headphone mode and plug in my headphones sound to the external speakers is muted but I get no sound from the sim. After a couple of minutes I get static like I have lost the signal. I am using Sennheiser headphones that have a base transmitting unit that plugs into the computer that sends a wireless signal to the phones. Is there something else I have to do in the sim settings. As best I can remember I didn't have to do anything special to get them to work before. This could be due to something in the last update a week or so ago. Anyone else in the forum using headphone mode successfully. I am not using multiplayer.
  14. This is what I am looking into. My Community folder is empty. All my updates were put in the Official\OneStore folder by Microsoft during the update download and install. To move all these files do I have to do a cut and paste or is there a better faster way?
  15. Thanks for the come backs. I will comment tomorrow.
