    CYDA Compilation Error

    I just sent an error log of an unspecified error that failed to parse while working on this airport. Unfortunately I hit the <RETURN> key before completing an full explanation. Rather than resend the log I thought it better to explain here why you are seeing an incomplete error log...

    Words "Winter" and "Spring" on Texture Bitmap

    I posted this originally over at the AVSIM Forums, but thought I might repost here as well to reach a larger group of people...This may perhaps be the wrong subforum for my question, but the others seemed too specific and excluded my visual issue These are the two images I posted at AVSIM...

    Editing the FS Earth Tiles Image Result

    I have been using FSET very successfully to build photoreal scenery for some backcountry Idaho airports. One has been a true "test" for me, Sulphur Creek Ranch, ID74. Here is the Bing Map image I used... Notice how white the runway is? It's supposed to be grass...albeit worn down grass...

    MagDec File vs MagVar in ADE

    I have replaced the default MagDec.bgl file in Scenery/Base/scenery with a more up to date file. When modifying an airport with ADE I always look at the MagVar listed in the Airport Reference Point (ARP). First question...Are MagDec and MagVar interchangeable terms for the same data? Second...

    Combining Parts From One Aircraft Model to Another

    I ask this question and make this post with tongue in cheek because I have never in my life created an aircraft for Flight Simulator, although I did dabble with the FSX SDK P-38 Tutorial a bit, just never could get the hang of it. I cringe as I type, because I fear I will get more "sticks and...

    Grumman G21A Oz Redux "Turbo" Mod

    I am trying to do something perhaps a little unconventional, but first, the background and reason... I fly with FSEconomy (FSE) for those familiar with the website. For those not, it emulates a "Mom and Pop" type charter financial operation where you carrying passengers and cargo, purchase...

    Can I Change FSX Default Inland Water Textures

    I use both FS2004 and FSX. For FS2004 I have REX installed but have never purchased the FSX version. In FS2004, using the REX textures, I have water textures the way I like them and...for those waterways I am personally familiar with...as close to realistic as possible. In FSX I am...

    FS2004 Removing Airport Footprint after Moving Airport with ADE

    I have been doing a lot of VFR low and slow bush flying in Idaho lately. Two of the airports I frequent a lot are 02ID, Morgan Ranch, and ID74, Sulphur Creek Ranch. Both are horribly positioned in the default FS2004 Scenery. Both have runway headings completely wrong and both have the airport...

    FSX Terrain and Weather Interaction

    I have been flying a lot in FSX in the mountains of central Idaho using various general aviation aircraft. As a resident of the area I am very aware of the weather in the region. I have seen, now that FSX (and the real world Northern Hemisphere) has moved in to Spring, something I rarely...

    Bristol F2B Turn While Taxiing Problem

    First off, I apologize if this is the incorrect place to post this, but I don't know where this question would be better posed. One of the Virtual Airlines I belong to is going to have an event commerating the end of hostilities in "The Great War", World War I. We are going to do a...

    FSEconomy Fuel Tank Issues

    I wasn't really sure where to post this question. If the moderators feel it is a better fit in some other area, please do so... If any of you have flown for, or are flying for, FSEconomy you know that within the FSEconomy database are aircraft "specifications" that give weights, fuel...

    Default FS2004 GPS Airport Data Location

    I used ADE9X version 1.70 (w/ Prokey) to modify the default FS2004 KSAN airport to bring the approaches up to current AIRAC data. The first thing I did was to edit the ARP to reflect the current magnetic deviation to -11.5 (11.5 degrees east). The current chart valid until 04 JAN 18 shows a...

    FS2004 Default Taxisign Nightlighting

    It seems to me that once upon a time my default taxisigns in both FS2004 and FSX had nightlighting so they were readable when taxiing at night. Maybe that was just an illusion or I was seeing a lighted taxisign at a payware or really good freeware airport. At any rate, I no longer...if ever in...

    List of All ADE Shortcut Keys or Commands

    I used to know the shortcut or key command to move an item up or down in a list, but for the life of me I cannot remember what it is. Same thing for the "rubber band" shortcut. I especially use the list movement shortcut when in Approach Mode and I have to add a leg to an existing approach...

    FSX Excluding Autogen Trees Created with Autogen Annotator

    Having finally figured out how to create autogen trees over the top of MegaSceneryEarth Idahov3 with both Autogen Annotator and scenProc I now have run into another issue. Despite carefully creating the vegetation poly so it does not touch or come close to the airport runway I still have...

    FSX ScenProc Autogen Doesn't Appear in Megascenery Earthv3 [SOLVED]

    I have Megscenery Earth Idahov3 installed and the view is stunning, but as you probably know, it kills the autogen. To add Autogen Trees (not so much worried about buildings) back in I have tried using both Autogen Annotator from the FSX SDK and ScenProc. I got AA to work finally and added...

    FSXA Creating a New Single Object from Several Default Objects

    I have been flying a lot in the State of Idaho in the US with FSEconomy. It's my home state and I've been to many of the small mountain airstrips I fly into and out of. To help with the VFR part of the flying I purchased a 3rd Party scenery payware for the entire state and am having great...

    FSX Buildings Disappear and Reappear in FSX with Mesh

    Kind of an unusual situation that I never had when in FS2004. I use FSX now as well and was using the free BlueScenery Photoreal mesh for most of Idaho. The folks at BlueSky were kind enough to also include airports edited with ADE so the airport matched the new elevations if necessary. I...

    Opening Airport from Project File or BGL

    I have seen many times, especially from Jon and other knowledgeable people, that you should always avoid opening an airport directly from the .bgl file. Yet another thread suggests this is a good way to lose ground polys and lights. The recommended "source" is the ADE project file. Here's...

    Lost the Ability to Add a Location in Free Version of Sketchup

    I am bummed. I use Sketchup for all my FlightSim modeling endevours. As of May 22, 2017 Sketchup free versions have lost the ability to Add a Location which is key for me to get the proper base and orientation of the model I am creating. This was important so I could use the Wizard in MCX to...
