    FSX What Version of SimConnect Should I Have? What is ESP SimConnect?

    Oh sorry, it should have said, I don't use P3D anyway because my i7-920 computer with GTX 290 video card is not capable of running P3D V2.4 or v2.5. I bought P3D V1 and it is terrible on my lower end computer. I don't think you will have problems making a transition provided you have good...

    FSX What Version of SimConnect Should I Have? What is ESP SimConnect?

    Following up. Your detail is excellent. I have followed the developers instructions to removed the ESP version of SC. I installed their supplied version and everything now appears to be working properly. I just double checked and see that I bought and installed Prepar3d V1 or whatever version...

    FSX What Version of SimConnect Should I Have? What is ESP SimConnect?

    I recently purchased Air Alaska addon mission set. Had a SimConnect error on install. Install completed. I can run the interface and it launches FSX but after a minute or so my FSX does a CTD. I have worked with the developers extensively to see if we can resolve the problem. I appears to be...

    FSX_KML Choose Folder problem

    SOLVED! The issue of no kml.ini file and inability to change the folder paths. After some research, just do this: - copy over the Microsoft Games folder which is under C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games, this will copy the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X...

    DAE textures not importing

    Recommend Updating the Version # of MCX I just spent several hours trying to figure out why my MCX wasn't working as before. I had updated to 1.3.0, the version before the bug fix. I had no idea there was a problem until I started using it again recently, and had the same problem as the...

    FSX What is the best or appropriate tool for making textured polygons?

    I have it downloaded and installed, have never used it...so I imagine I will have a learning curve. Thanks for this confirmation. I imagine it can connect to FSX so that you can slew to lat/long to get exact points for where you want to draw a polygon.

    FSX What is the best or appropriate tool for making textured polygons?

    I want to work on some textured polygons, georeferenced to specific places to replace unlying texture with ground specific. They might be photographs, aerial photo areas or using other default textures. What is the best tool, or easiest tool to use for these purposes. IE I want to replace...

    Problem setting FSK KLM Paths in Win 7

    Hi, I was just trying to get this program to work and had a similar experience with setting the folder locations. How can I fix this, it is not clear to me by this discussion? Do I locate the INI file and edit it manually for locations? And, what is this little program to fix the KML...

    Google 3D Models - Sketchup Model - Copyright Question

    Hi Sidney, interesting comments because I am doing exactly the same thing, I find that there are opportunities to make clean up modification, improve the texturing, decompile a model and make it into something similar but different. My intentions are the same as yours where I draw upon a...

    Google 3D Models - Sketchup Model - Copyright Question

    I am hovering on this same approach. Everyone I ask sends me an email saying no issues, do whatever you want. I am finding that to get a full suite of objects for a particular scenery I might call upon a dozen authors. Anyway I do have lots of approvals. And yes I noticed that as I...

    Google 3D Models - Sketchup Model - Copyright Question

    Supplemental Comment on Using Sketchup Models I see this has been discussed before, sorry to duplicate the discussion. At this point, I am tracking down authors and seeking approvals. As I upload sceneries I will acknowledge the authors work, the source and provide the library to others...

    Google 3D Models - Sketchup Model - Copyright Question

    I have working on a slew of projects and drawing upon the usual freeware library's but find that there are things that I need and are not available and I would rather focus on making the scenery than making the objects. The Warehouse has bazillions of objects which for the most part can be...

    Google 3D Models - Sketchup Model - Copyright Question

    Thanks Dick. That's what I was thinking as well. Read or tried to read the terms of service before I posted, I quite frankly I wasn't sure about what it was saying. So unless I get something in writing, ie email saying OK then assume No that seems to be the mod of operation. I think item 5.7...

    Google 3D Models - Sketchup Model - Copyright Question

    Can some of you folks give me advice on downloading models from the Warehouse and using them in FSX. I know that I can download and convert and use an object for my own personal use. And, in some cases I have been able to email authors about using objects and they are generally pleased to...

    Converting Sketchup Models With Textures

    Yes that's what I thought. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong in my procedure with importing skp files. I'll keep plugging away.

    Converting Sketchup Models With Textures

    I have successfully managed to convert sketchup models that are downloadable as COLLADA ziped files which contain textures. When I download the *.skp files (where no COLLADA files are provided) I can upload that file into Sketchup but when I export those files I do not get any texture files...
