  1. Hello I have another issue in dealing with FSX's crap. Tokyo Narita airport is visible during the day but gone at night. I just discovered this last night as I arrived from Denver. I have HIGHMEXFIX=1 in the CFG file but the airport is still gone. All the others appear fine at night. Any help would be appreciated thanks
  2. I extracted Flight1/Digital Aviation Fokker 70/100, one of my old favorites (Meanwhile AS/DA CRJ is sitting idle and cold&dark in my hangar waiting for some serious study!). Fokker 70 (coming in 1993 - later than Fokker 100) was a modern and capable regional jet, but unfortunately it entered market at the wrong time. In the face of aggressive competition from CRJ/ERJ, and compounded by lack of financial backing from operators, it could not be a commercial success, and its production spanned only about 4 years. Fokker 70's development consisted of "...cutting various fuselage sections of Fokker 100, but keeping the wings and tail....". After "Fokker" company filed for bankruptcy in 1997, another company called "Rekkof" ("Fokker" spelt backwards!) tried to bring "Fokker" aircraft back into the air, but apparently without success. Anyway, In the SIM, Fokker 70 (smaller of the two) is an appealing and "cute" aircraft to fly, and, as expected, DA, had created an excellent simulation of the aircraft (no VC though!). Below are a few screenshots of the Fokker 70 (in the elegant colors of Austrian Arrows) test-flying my favorite hop from Yakutat (PAYA) to Juneau (PAJN) across the snowy mountains and glaciers of Southern Alaska (Orbx SAK + PAJN). Thanks for viewing these images of this airplane from the iconic aircraft manufacturer credited to be one of the earliest in the world (1912-1996)!

    Black squares

    I have a fairly high end gaming computer. My FSX SE Settings are not maxed out. While in flight I noticed the buildings are little black boxes. I suspect it's my Nvidia Settings or maybe one setting that needs to be changed. Any ideas on which setting needs to be looked at first?

    Hyper Thread or not?

    I just rebuild my i7-3770 Dell machine with Win 10 64bit and installed FSX-SE. I currently have hyper threading OFF. Is there any advantage to turning it on? Thanks in advance, Jim Driskell
  5. So I recently Purchased the Feelthere ERJ-145LR From steam, I love the Product, expect there is a slight issue, I don't have any lights on the Exterior of the aircraft (Nav, beacon, Strobe, logo Ect.) There is a video on youtube that I watched and replicated on my aircraft, yet the lights still wont work, if someone could hep that would be amazing, Thanks!!
  6. A few screenshots en-route on a short flight from CBA7 (Scar Creek Airport) to CAF4 (Tsuniah Lodge) - British Columbia [Orbx-PNW/AS-OV10]
  7. I have just purchased the new EZDOK v2.6 and installed into FSX:SE. I am trying to set up the camera sets with some of my aircraft. Aerosoft A321 at the moment. I am able to set up all of my cameras correctly with various settings however, I am not able to cycle through the views in the virtual cockpit category. When I use the preset 'A' key it cycles through the cameras that you can see when you right click the mouse button and highlight cockpit. I have also assigned a joystick key to 'NEXT CAMERA IN CATEGORY' this does the same thing. I have deleted all of the preset cameras in the EZDOK Virtual Cockpit window too. I have looked through the Youtube videos that people have suggested but they do not address my problem. Any suggestions or help? Thanks!
  8. The Avro Vulcan's delta-wing design (for a sub-sonic aircraft) was seemingly a revolutionary one, but, most of all, the shape of this plane does appear rather "cool-looking"! The aircraft is noted to be in successful continuous operation for a period of nearly 30 years, which is a testament to its design. Here are some screenshots of the Vulcan flying along the northern (oceanic) border of Spain (Bay of Biscay) from San Sebastian (LESO) to La Coruna (LECO). There are several big and small coastal towns along this route, but only rolling hills. The higher mountains of the Cantabrian range lie to the south of the route. Thanks for viewing and hope you enjoy these images. (IRIS/MSE/REX)
  9. Looking to extract another QW aircraft from my depository, I decided to test out the BAe-146, which always appeared rather "unique-looking" to me. There was a time, when, I guess, 4 engines on a regional jet could be still marketable, since the production of (BAe 146 + Avro RJ) seems to have run for nearly 20 years. And now we fly non-stop ~18 hours across the world in 2 engine jets. My longest (as passenger) was for 17-17.5 hours a couple of years ago in a 777 (economy class...probably would not do such non-stop again, if I can avoid). But, on a related note, my only First Class travel (in Air France) several years ago (my only time, and will be surely the last time...pretty much used up all of my SkyTeam mileage points...🙂...) was truly memorable. Full-size wine bottles to choose from, exquisite entrees, delicious selection of chocolates etc., and, yes, the silky-soft blankets for sleep...Oh well, I should be back to thinking about my next economy-class meal-trays (freshly thawed - chicken or fish?) and, as to blankets, the one that comes in the wrapper will do... Anyway, here are a some screenshots for the Ansett Australia airline (noted to have operated for 66 years), and its BAE-146, which was used on regular flights between Melbourne (YMML) and Tasmania's capital city Hobart (YMHB) - before Ansett ceased all operations in 2001. Thanks for viewing.
  10. When I switched from FSX to FSX-Steam, a new logbook was created. It worked for a few flights, but no longer works. Please help.
  11. OK, there's right now a 50% discount (I don't know if this is common for Orbx), and now I considering purchasing both the Base and Vector packs for FSX-SE. What do you think about those packs, regarding VAS and FPS impact? I understand the visual impact is very good, this is not to be discussed 😉
  12. Here are a few shots for (Alabeo) SU-26 and (Orbx) Norway at dusk (using pre-set REX) The area is vicinity of ENRI - Ringebu/Frya Airport.
  13. Now that I have Prepared v4 along with FSX SE, I find that my Traffic 360 and Ultimate Traffic 2 are both outdated. So now the question is between Traffic Global and Ultimate Traffic Live, which is better. My understanding is that since I already own Traffic 360 and Ultimate Traffic 2, I will be able to use a discount coupon for either one. If there's another payware out there please let me know. Freeware is out because my knowledge of files is weak.
  14. I have installed the ,,PMDG 737 6700 NGX Expansion FSX,, . After extracting the File on the Desktop I started the Instalation. After that their is comming an Error: I dont know what to do! Who can Help?
  15. I have not used England scenery much. Here is a collection of screenshots taken for a stretch of coastal tour along the south-western tip (between Bournemouth and Plymouth). I am flying the AGtruck on a sightseeing (instead of an agricultural) mission...did ensure this one does not have any crop-dusting equipment...(to prevent any accidental deployment)! The terrain in this scenery may appear a bit repetitive, but nonetheless makes for a soothing flight. Thanks for viewing. (Orbx-England/Alabeo-C188/REX)
  16. I have not flown Italy (MSE) much, so tried a ~100nm flight from Naples to Rome. It at least educates one about the terrain and the localities that one would encounter on a real flight between these two cities. Of course, any form of activity and life, on the ground, is always missing in Photoscenery. There is no high Alps here, but the flight turned out to be an enjoyable one across rolling hills that border the nearby Apennine Mountains. Here are few screenshots captured en-route. Using MSE/AS-Wilga/REX. Good day/evening!
  17. Hello can someone recommend which "Pool Size" I should use for my FSX-SE system. Specs: I5 8600K @4.8GHZ GTX1060 6GB 8GB RAM At the moment my size is default [BUFFERPOOLS] UsePools=1 I know you can change it to hundreds of combinations, can anyone who has a similar setup recommend a size for me or should I leave it off? -Thanks Ollie
  18. I always fly MSE at daylight, but here are a few screenshots taken mostly at dawn & dusk just to see what it looks like (using MSE/REX/JF-F27). Thanks for viewing.
  19. Hello, I don't know if this is the wright place for this topic, but I will give it a shot anyways. My Navighraph data manager does not find any of the fsx SE files when it scans for addons. I tried to locate the fsx SE map manually ionn the manager, but with no succes. Also when I try to install the addon (for example PMDG) munally, it does nothing. My pmdg fmc will still give me the message that the nav data is out of date, and I can't find given STAR's and SID's in the fmc. Please help me with my problem, Noah
  20. Here is a collection of shots of the IRIS A-10A Warthog flying in Hawaii - with MSE scenery and REX textures. Thanks for viewing.
  21. Here are a few en-route screenshots for a flight between Sydney (YSSY) and Melbourne (YMML) in the largest of the Lockheed constellations (aircraft thanks to Manfred Jahn/Team). I used, here, the Lufthansa 1957 colors of this iconic aircraft. I have some personal bias for the constellation because of the opportunity I'd to visit on board the (restored) L-1049 (TWA Constellation) at the KC Airline History Museum. That plane was flown from Mesa, AZ (airplane graveyard) to KC by a dedicated group of volunteers. While visiting the airplane, I'd asked my guide, "How did you manage to get this plane here?". He said, "IFR", and then after a pause, added, "I Follow Roads"! Today, I read somewhere that, in the crew's words, “The further she got away from the junkyard, the better she flew!” For this flight, I'm using Orbx(AU) and REX, and I'm tracking the coastline of the "island" continent. Thanks for viewing these pictures of this nostalgic aircraft - regarded as grand finale of the golden age of prop-liner aviation.
  22. Hello, I'm a little confused on how to shutdown my EH101. Could someone help? I can find most of the stuff I need to use to shut it down but there's a few things that feel like they're missing. Any ideas?
  23. Hello everyone, I'm using FSX SE and I looked everywhere, every forum, every website for a better perfomance cloud. I don't use REX. I downloaded some some DXT3 clouds from but I still got really bad perfomance with clouds. On ground, clear weather - 42 FPS On ground, BKN clouds - 12 FPS The density is set to Medium (otherwise if i set low i don't have clouds at all) and my perfomance is really bad! Please if someone know a solution for better perfomance clouds i'm needing it! I don't care about beauty. I just want to see cloudy weather (when it's cloudy of course) with some perfomance! Is it possible with my machine? intel i3 3.3 ghz amd 7600A 2gb intel hd graphics 1gb Thanks anyway!
  24. After getting setup in FSX:SE I am unable to take a screenshot as normal using the "v" key. I get an error message that states, "Unable to open screenshot file." I can take a screenshot in Steam but it will not load it into the FSX photo file as I have directed. I just want to take a screen shot that I can download to my computer. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong. Thanks. Rodger
  25. I've been trying to use some of my FS9 aircraft in FSX:SE and each time the textures are missing. I've noticed that's even the case for free FS9 aircraft downloads that are claimed to be FSX compatible. I've been surprised a number of time that reviewers of such aircraft that claim to be using them with FSX, never seem to mention that they've taken the aircraft through some conversion step. When I browse these FS9 airplane's folders, I notice that the texture folders have files with a BMP extension (what I know to be standard bitmap graphics format), whereas my FSX aircraft texture folders have files with a DDS extension. So I'm guessing that the DDS format is some new (likely more compressed) graphic format intro'd for FSX. So my question is whether it's possible to even use FS9 aircraft in FSX and if so, how do you make the textures compatible? I'm also curious if running with the DX10 support in FSX:SE / FSX Accelerated has any impact on the compatibility of FS9 aircraft; i.e. is this the likely explanation why players using FS9 aircraft with FSX SP2 or earlier don't need to convert anything?
