    FSX Exporting questions...

    HI. I am using version 1.4.0. I have a few questions about the exporting feature. 1) Is there a way to set the default (save as) location path for the exported file? I would like to have MCX send the file to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator...

    FSX KLAS tower not showing....

    Ok, it looks like it worked. Wow, the new tower is VERY tall(!) What is a good scale to use? I have always used 1.00 as a scale for any object.... Scott

    FSX KLAS tower not showing....

    Ok, I think I've got it now... I loaded the Paris.bgl file into ModelConverterX and found the "CDG tower a" image file. I then converted it to a .MDL. Then I added this file to the Model list in ADE. Then I copied all the CDG files mentioned above to my addon scenery/texture folder. Now I...

    FSX KLAS tower not showing....

    I found these .dds files in the EURW/texture folder: CDG_towers_Shateton.dds CDG_towers_ShatetonSpecular.dds CDG_towers_Shateton_LM.dds These are also in the global/texture folder: CDG_towers_Shateton.dds CDG_towers_Shateton_LM.dds I assume these are the textures for the tower. Scott

    FSX KLAS tower not showing....

    I am trying to add the new tower to my KLAS. I have added the tower ("cdg tower a" -- GUID 19731a88-480f-40ae-9654-4f340f26cee7) to my library object manager. The file was found in the Paris.bgl file in "Scenery\EURW\scenery". However, I can't get the tower object to show in the sim. I am...

    FSX Taxiway shoulder stripping...

    Is there a tutorial on how to make taxiway shoulder "stripes"? The one seen on just about every taxiway at all major airports (KLAX. KMIA, KFFK, Etc). A good step-by-step tutorial on how to make these with ADE would be good info to know. Scott

    FSX KORD RWY 14L VASI setup...

    Thanks for the explanations guys! Now I have a better understanding on how to make any adjustments to the glideslope location/beam. And those numbers did fix my VASI location, so that now it works correctly. Thanks again! Scott

    FSX KORD RWY 14L VASI setup...

    Thanks Jim and Ray. I will try those numbers for the location and see what happens. What about bean width of the glide-slope? Some runways have 3.0, some have 6.0? Does it depend on the runway width? Is there a standard beam width in SDE? Scott

    FSX KORD RWY 14L VASI setup...

    I recently had to adjust the ILS/glide-slope "cone" in ADE for the default KORD 14L. (The default glide-slope/ILS had me touching down halfway down the runway) However, now the VASI lights are always telling me I am too high (all white) for the entire approach. I need a detailed explanation on...

    FSX Service vehicles not showing all the time at the gate...

    At 10AM, I made a short flight to CYYZ. After landing Ground sent me to my parking spot that I always use (I have a reserved parking spot). When I taxied into the spot, the service vehicles (Push back tug, Baggage loader/Cart Etc.) where at the gate waiting for me. I made the same flight again...

    FSX Why can't I crash into buildings?

    OK, so is there a way to make a "crash box" in ADE? Then you might be able to "draw" the box in the area around the edge of the terminal building? I understand that this can't be done for the jet way's or push back tug because they would cause a crash all the time. Would the footprint of the...
