    Oh no, not again...

    Based on what Tom said. When you are "editing" the config files are you signed in to steam? Perhaps as Tom (I think) alludes to is that it might be that the cache is holding the functions and edits are not yet pipeline'd to that so it might not take the changes. Just a guesstimate of mine here

    Oh no, not again...

    It could very well be so as when it checks the configs against the original it has stored it sees what could be a corruption ( there isnt one of course) because we have been naughty simmers and changed the config to what we want and not what they want

    Oh no, not again...

    to clarify. I installed steam. Then I went to the fsx folder in steam and removed the 737 folder and placed that in a safe place and replaced it with a complete folder of 737's with all the defaults plus new AC's and new config file to support. This came from my old fsx so I know I could...

    Oh no, not again...

    Now this is a strange one....... I transferred (long old story) to FSX.SE from DVD versions. I replaced the WHOLE 737 folder in the sim objects and renamed the old one and moved it to a safe haven. My version had some fixes in it like the light switches and Id altered the LM textures so that...

    FS2004 Sound files related to airport ICAO ?

    what are the sounds that are different in these airports as they are industrially similar in the sound effects of the environment i..e engine sounds are the same if the same AC type is present in all, ground vehicles can be very similar except where fossil fuel is replaced by electric ground...

    Sketchup to Blender Plugin

    I agree with mousy. When bringing over Sketchup files in to Blender the best file type ive found is OBJ. Dae is ok on some small models as the textures can be corrected but on larger / complex one dae files dont play nicely at all when you look at some of the transferred textures

    FSXA Anyone using Blender 2.8?

    Textures don't show up

    yep! probably was. I have in the past taken a master model and checked for size then removed candy to bring it back to a reasonable level - changing a "pipe" from tube to a cube if you really need that effect is better i.e. On buildings you'll see air con ducts which are tubular, if you can...
