  1. Hi! Would just like to request scenery developers out there to do an AFCAD airport of WSSS (Changi Airport) in Singapore. Hopefully, the AFCAD could include the airport’s latest terminal which is Terminal 4 opened months ago. Thank you and Happy Simming! Jam
  2. Sim-Wings' La Palma scenery has been released for Prepar3D version 4. The latest in Sim-Wings' Canary Islands series to get the P3Dv4 treatment, La Palma is the most north-westerly of the Canary Islands. With a population of around 85,000, La Palma's main claim to fame is as the home of a number of leading astronomical observatories sited on its highest peak, the Roque de los Muchachos. The climate and location of the island means any cloud generally forms below the 2,423m (7,949ft) summit, leaving clear skies for stargazers. Europe's second-largest optical telescope, the 4.2m (165in) William Herschel telescope, is amongst those sited on the mountain. La Palma Airport, on the island's east coast, is equipped with a 2,200m (7,218ft) main runway and handled around 1.3m passengers last year. Although the airport is mainly served by inter-island services which operate year-round, during the summer holiday season larger aircraft operated by the likes of easyJet and TUI bring tourists from further afield. Sim-wings' rendition includes a detailed 3D model of the airport, including optimised 3D runway lighting, dynamic vehicles and Aircraft Parking and Information System (APIS). Full details of the release can be found on the Sim-wings Facebook page.
  3. UK2000's Luton Xtreme airport scenery has become the latest in a line of new releases for X-Plane 11. The Bedfordshire airport hosts Easyjet's headquarters and is the UK's fifth busiest in terms of passenger movements. The XP11 scenery, announced in a post on the UK2000 forum earlier today, includes custom light and halo effects, as well as custom taxiways and AI support. The layout, however, is based on the 2014-vintage FSX/P3D version, and therefore the more recent taxiway extension and new buildings do not feature.
  4. Drzewiecki Design's Warsaw Chopin airport has received a refresh for X-Plane 11. Version 2 of the scenery includes a variety of new features including an updated airport layout, XP11 AI compatibility and moving jetways at all gates. Some gates also receive animated elevators, and if you peer through the terminal windows you'll even see people walking around. The update does come with a price tag -- however, owners of the previous version are entitled to a 70% discount on the approximately €25 asking price. A full list of new features can be found at the Drzewiecki Design website.
  5. FlyTampa's Corfu has been released for X-Plane 11. Corfu is one of the most popular summer destinations in the Greek islands, famed for its short runway, dramatic terrain and challenging approaches. The announcement last night marked the latest in a line of XP11 releases from major developers, suggesting that Laminar Research's simulation platform -- which has struggled to compete with the MSFS behemoth in the past -- could be starting to claw back ground on the ESP-based sims. As well as a detailed rendition of the Ionnas Kapodistrias airport, FT have modelled the entire island of Corfu with custom mesh, hand-placed vegetation and 3D lighting. XP11 users will also benefit from sloped airport terrain. A full list of features can be found on the FlyTampa website.
  6. Sim pilots looking for a spot of fun in the sun have a new destination to head for with the release of FSDG's St Vincent. The latest in the developer's 'Pilots of the Caribbean' series includes complete coverage of St Vincent, LOD13 mesh, SODE jetways and detailed renditions of the island's airstrips.
  7. FSDT have a 30% off sale for one week. http://www.fsdreamteam.com/forum/index.php/topic,17555.0.html
  8. Hello everyone! I am looking for anybody who might be interested in helping me out with a mega project I have in the making, of which you can read more about in the following thread: https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/portugal-vfr-the-ultimate-complete-scenery-for-portugal-wip.442495/ Basically what I need is someone who is an object designer/modeler, and has enough experience to be able to build accurate models of real buildings, specifically castles, with or without photo textures. My project is freeware, so unfortunately I can't pay you anything, but I was hoping someone here might be insterested enough by my project to lend me a hand! If you do please contact me either in this thread or through PM! Thank you, Leonardo Santos
  9. Release of UHD Mesh Scenery v4 for X-Plane 11 UHD Mesh Scenery v4 can be seen as a vastly improved version of the default scenery shipping with XP11. It is using/referencing the exact same set of artwork files (textures, object, autogens, forests) which ship with XP11, so you do not need other art assets to be installed while UHD Mesh Scenery v4 will also benefit from any artwork improvements (autogen, texture) coming with future XP11 versions. General Characteristics of UHD Mesh Scenery v4 are identical to those of HD Mesh Scenery v4 (you can read those on its own page). The advantages of UHD Mesh Scenery v4 are: Uses 30m DEM data (instead of 90m DEMs)! Landclass data for some areas (USA West, Europe Alps, Europe Pyrenees, Japan, New Zealand) was re-created with very high resolution (compared to the data used in HD Mesh Scenery v4) resulting in even better landclass representation. The triangle mesh resolution a lot higher than in HD Mesh Scenery v4: this give - obviously - even better representation of the 30m DEM data (slopes, mountains etc.) BUT this also vastly(!) improves the landclass data representation (which in X-Plane is very closely coupled with the triangle size in the mesh). This is most obvious with forest detail. OSM data is updated (its "date stamp" is 10th January 2018) . Which makes it newer than the data in UHD Mesh Scenery v4. Coverage New Zealand Japan Europe - Pyrenees Europe - Alps Europe - Scandinavia USA - West (3 files, 1/2/3) Canada - West (3 files, 1/2/3) Important Warnings! The scenery requires at least X-Plane 11.00 !!! IT WILL NOT WORK WITH X-Plane 10.xx! 32 GBytes of RAM are highly recommended (64 GBytes are optimal)! Some areas might work with 16 GBytes of RAM too, but there it is very likely you will quickly run into some OOM issues! Official Site All other (continuously updated) information, download links and important instructions can be found on the official UHD Mesh Scenery v4 Site: http://www.alpilotx.net/downloads/x-plane-11-uhd-mesh-scenery-v4/ Please read the instructions carefully, as not following them might result in a broken installation! Screenshots Here are the official screenshots accompanying the release of UHD Mesh Scenery v4. Just follow the links to my Google Photos albums: UHD Mesh Scenery v4 (for X-Plane 11) Have Fun!
  10. I have purchased many products and tried to install them, but its the third time i have to reinstall my windows as well as fsx, because my scenery libraries are disappeared after i installed several orbx products. I also tried to copy a backup of the scenery.cfg but its not working. im really frusturated and i have no clue whats the reason is. So i can only see the orbx products in the lbrary but all other scenery like the standard scenery of fsx are disappeared. Its also not possible to see the aircraft image, i cant understand this. Always if this happens i reinstall windows and fsx, but it happens again and again. Pls Help and sorry about my english.
  11. John Venema has just announced photoreal scenery coming this year for UK/IRELAND regions.
  12. Some of you might have already read about it here or there: UHD Mesh Scenery v4 Although this is NOT RELEASED yet, I thought it would be time to show you a bunch of - more or less - final screenshots of some of the finished regions: Alps / Pyrenees (Europe) Japan New Zealand USA West (everything west of 104°W!) As always, UHD Mesh will use high resolution elevation data (30m DEMs from various sources) and at least for the above mentioned regions also some specially tuned high resolution landclass data (compared to HD Mesh). The exact release date is still unknown, because I have still not finished - but at least planned - Canada West and Scandinavia (how, or how much they will be covered will have to be seen). But I aim for sometime spring 2018 (but again, no guarantees). Now, this way you can head over to the quite extensive (already 187 pics) album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/0SC8UmRvs0OkJcQX2 And here are a few appetizers:
  13. Ok, I'm sure this topic has been posted before i just cant seem to find it. I have downloaded and added a number of third party scenery offerings over time with really no issues, however, lately I have encountered two separate new 3rd part airport scenery paks I downloaded, that "AI Flight Planner" has eventually identified, but FSX-SE has not. I have tried everything I know and FSX-SE still do not show these airports in the (FREE FLIGHT - SELECT AIRPORT) window. I actually viewed and edited each of these airport files in AFCAD and saved successfully. AI Flight Planner see's them, FSX-SE does not!! I know this fix is simple and right in front of me , but, I DO NOT SEE IT! HELP!! Thank you in advance, sws56
  14. Just announced. I recently bought their v4 KATL from them and was pleased. Anyone taken the plunge yet? If so feedback? Thanks -Braun
  15. Hello I have a problem with ORBX, all roads are sand or grass, I've already uninstalled everything, reinstalled and the problem persists.

  16. Hi everyone, I am brand spanking new to X-plane world. Just bought X-plane-11 about 2 days ago. It will take some time to spend some time in this simulator. Got few easy questions. I have one area in sim with HD Mesh 4 and one area with US Ortho Project (Mid-Atlantic region...whopping 128gb size). Now Orth4XP is very cool and all but the space requirements are insane and I only have 512gb SSD (which can not sustain whole lot of Orth4xp). What I want to do is have city Land class roads etc using default textures with HD Mesh 4. How is that possible? This is kinda like the Orbx approach in P3D or UTX. I want mesh, landclass, and proper city planning etc without the huge images of OrthoXP. That way I can save some free space on my SSD. I did 4 regions of HD Mesh 4 and space was not bad at all. Or HD Mesh 4 has already this information (It talks about city and stuff on its page). Thanks for your help, Happy Holidays
  17. So I have been flying in and out of Japan with a lot of flights, but so far I only own a couple of sceneries that allow me to do so, and those are Narita International Airport and Fukushima Airport by Wing Creation Inc., and Kansai International Airport by Aerosim. But I haven't seen any other scenery for japan, so I was wondering if there is more to be found? And I am not just looking for airports but also mesh and textures for the surounding scenery. I don't mind if it is payware or freeware, all I want is that it can be ported into P3Dv4 and that it is of decent quality
  18. I have started to have issues when starting P3D up, and I don't know if it warrants a complete reinstall... I start up P3D and on the scenario page the aircraft preview doesn't show up and the default airport is shown as Birmingham without anything surrounding it on the map. When I try and change the airport, it shows only 6 airports to choose from. Also when I choose an aircraft and exit back to the scenarios page, the sim crashes. Any help would be much appreciated. https://www.dropbox.com/s/gj871fhgn9ii143/Capture.PNG?dl=0
  19. After migrating to P3D v4.1, I started to add all my freeware sceneries via add-on.xml method. It's very nice, because you don't need to copy Effects files to the sim folder. The problem is that if I have more than 38 entries in my add-ons folder, I start to have some texture issues, like you can see in the picture bellow: It only happens if I have more than 38 entries, no matter what add-on is. Do you know if there is any limit of add-ons that can be added to the sim?
  20. PITTSBURGH VFR

    Dedicated to all FSX enthusiasts in Steel City. A preview video of upcoming release of Pittsburgh VFR for FSX:
  21. After migrating to P3Dv4.1, I started do add some sceneries that does not have a installer using the "Add-ons" method, like modern companies (A2A, FSDT, Flightbeam) are doing. In that way, I don't need to copy effects files to the sim folder, keeping the installation folders cleaner. But after adding about 15 sceneries this way, I noticed some collateral effect. Some GSX vehicles loose their textures and even some aircraft like A2A and PMDG stoped to load their textures (and became black). Removing all the sceneries xml from the add-ons directory, makes everything comes back to normal. Now, I'd like to know how you guys are doing. What's the best way to add manually installed sceneries? 1. Use the modern way, through Add-ons folder and xml 2. Use the old way, through Scenery Library
  22. UK Scenery and Airports

    Hi Folks, Just transferred over to P3D V3 from FSX and looking for some good UK scenery and airport files. I have the FSX versions of VFR photographic scenery and UK2000 airports, but not too sure if I can use these directly with P3d v3, and if so with the install pick up I'm using P3D and not FSX. Any help and advice - much appreciated. Rocky 114B
  23. Bit of a strange one this as I've never personally come across it. While flying around the UK, in particular the east Anglian region, (Southend) I noticed a line across the airport, further inspection saw the line was raised about 50ft and covered a large area. (not sure how to add pics) The line looks like a road but its not and it goes in a perfect straight line for miles. I have P3D V4 - ORBX Global (latest) and Global Vector (latest) installed Anyone else come across this issue and know how to solve it. Many thanks for your replies. Jeremy
  24. P3D 4.1 scenery problem

    I can load any airport in P3D but one HDAM. When I select the airport P3D loads to 37% and stays there. This happens with the default and freeware scenery.
  25. hello, 2 computers, one has the simulator PC1 (fsx, but also installed here are P3D and X-plane) the second, PC2, has the program "little navmap" networked. I made the connection on PC2 for the simulator via little mapconnect-programma, started up on PC1, and works fine, i can see my plane on PC2 in program little navmap. Now, trying to also load the scenery library on this PC2 (The scenery library is of course on the computer with the sim, PC1) no connection possible, not via network, or via mapped drive...The sim choice blocks me on "X-plane 11", with "reset paths" greyed, there is only that simulator to chose X-plane 11. Don't know where he got that, there are no simulators on this PC2, and i seldom use X-plane 11. Thank you for an answer ! Ivan Werbrouck
