FSX is a over 10 years old game, and no longer supported from MS. A newer game is FSX-SE, which works better then the originally FSX.
In the meantime there is a new Version based on FSX named P3D. It special works with 64 bits then 32 bits at the old FSX.
Your question where to buy (old)...
@Tom Gibson: I never delete(d) stock airport objects changing third party bgl files. Editing an addon airport I seldom need default buildings. If they are undesirable visible I exclude them.
@Jon: If I will change an addon airport my way is to save the airport to an project file (AD4). Then I...
To complement the problematic nature of third party airports. Sometimes there are not only airport.bgl files but also cvx,bgl files. I often had problems if I tried to delete such cvx-files, because the airport altitude or some scenerydetails don't show. So I deleted only the airport bgl-file...
Thank you for this very interesting instruction! I often try to modify freewaresceneries and seldom there is a projectfile. Would it be better to save the loaded scenery immediatly to a project file and after to load this file? So I could safe modify the scenery.
I don't believe there is such a file.
Searching for this file you could find abacus_ez_scenery_missingtextures.zip.
Which scenery of EZ you are searching for? EZ is a library and abacus uses such libraries.
I never have tried such but you could design a 'special' runway only for the heli. Parking spot, a very short taxiway, Hold short stop and a runway. Now you can look how far the heli need for starting. But I am doubtful for landing this way! Try a phantasy airport only with this equipment. I...
In my opinion ADE is a powerful helper for designer of airports and the fault finder is part of ADE. It is right, you can design without AI-traffic, but I think AI-traffic complement airports.
Missing hold-short points you can see (or not) missing black rwy-lines you can't see generally.
To locate such objects I normally use the payware Instant Scenery. First I am searching with a special feature of this program for the object, the file library and the scenery file name.
And then I can move or delete this object .
I tried your flightplan loading in AIFP and found some errors :
FP .txt Line No. 1:

I can't remeber if I used SAMM under WIN10 bevor; maybe not. With my old PC (WIN7) I used often SAMM without problems In April 2017 I got a new PC with WIN10 and yesterday
I used SAMM. First I have to update to 2.2.06 and then I had troubles but a fine static model.
Today I tried SAMM (Version...
Thank you again for answering.
The "errormessages" are the same as bevor: 1. Microsoft.Net Framework It was tried loading a file with wrong format
2. Unable to locate aircraft folders. (this I can solve)
3. The "modeldef.xml" file does not appear to be valid..... (only option to click OK)...
Thank you Don for answering,
I tried as you said:
I downloaded the Martin Wrights dlls and they are located in C:\Windows\System32.
Second I deleted the SAMM.ini file.
I restarted the PC and started SAMM and get the same errormessage and SAMM didn't obviously find the SDK. The Path in the ini...
I used SAMM with Win7 without problems.
Now I try to use SAMM with Win10. I can do this but I get error messages.
I installed the latest version 2.2.06. at C:/FSX_Programme/SAMM
FSX is saved at C:/FSX
SDK is saved at C:/SDK
Trying to start SAMM as administrator I get the message about a...
Surprise for me: The supposed bug isn't a bug.
Quote Kari R.:
Those light areas you noticed are actually fields (farmland). Also those polygons with different colour around those are fields just using different default texture in FSX.
In FSX available default textures, which were used are...
some (longer) testing brought new findings. The BGLfiles: PKX_5309_Maasto, PKX_5309_Pientareet, PKX_5309_Sands_def and PKX_5309_Sport of the South-Finland scenery cause the bad polygons near Vaasa. I don't know why, but now it works. In this region I have only your addons, no ORBX maybe...
I see a problem with the scenery around Vaasa. I use FSXA, Finland_Base_Pack_V2, South Finland, Vaasa Photoscenerie_1.0 and Finnish_Photosceneries_ I and II.
I flew nearby Vaasa north direction and saw some white-grey places. Any idea what could this mistake be?
