Got an e:mail from a buddy. He had some bad RAM in his PC. I replaced it under warranty (Corsair).
Now when he brings up local airports (CYVR, CYXX, etc) the afcad runways, taxiways, lighting, etc are there but no scenery objects??? No terminal buildings, hangers or towers. If he loads an...
Justin Time who started FSGenesis (haven't a clue what his real name is) posted this. Looks he has fallen on hard times.
Maybe someone here knows where he could find flightsim work??
I have been hearing/reading that Win8.1 crashes FSX. I have also heard
Creative X-Fi sound cards stop working. Even some anti-virus apps stop working.
I'm running Win7 but was thinking of going to Win8.1. Anyone here had Win8.1 problems?
I've been building a bunch of small refueling bases in the spots where Pan Am
had their clipper flying boat bases pre WW2.
Treasure Island in Frisco, Honolulu, Midway, etc. Using ADE and Instant
Scenery2. All has gone fairly well. Few little hiccups but all solved. I look for
I downloaded a freeware object library of military objects as it had some older
looking military trucks. I have been making some simple fictitious airports on
some Pacific islands.
While using Instant Scenery2 in FSX I was able to place the trucks on the US
mainland but as soon...
I sloped a "ramp" for amphib aircraft to taxi up onto land. I used a "flatten mask
class exclude autogen". As stated in the manual I show grass up the ramp.
When I try anything other than Airport Background I lose the sloped vector data
and I'm back to the default mesh altitudes. I...
I used ADEX to place a couple of effects lights. fx_HS_FSX_marine_green_1s
to be exact. They show on my PC but not on my buddies. He has all the
fx_HS_FSX light effects in his Effects folder. I sent him the airport bgl a 2nd time
just in case I sent him the wrong one the first time...
I was making a small change to PMDY (small flatten) and got this warning when I compiled the airport.
I have a feeling it had nothing to do with what I changed and most likely would
have come up compiling the unchanged airport. Am I correct?
WARNING: #C1102 PMDY 5166 APRON_VERTEX...
First off I know nothing about writing gauges. I have tweaked a few xml files for scenery.
Question....why does this gauge show -500 ft/min? Whether the aircraft is in the
air trimmed out or sitting on the water at sea level the gauges "zero" is -500'.
Is there something in the...
What are the usual problems that come from using aircraft designed for FS9
under FSX? Textures, dynamics,etc?
I remember reading something about the spinning propeller textures but what
I made the switch to FSX a couple of months back. In FS9 I built a friend and I
a series of small refuelling bases for the flying boats like the Short Empire Class
and the Boeing B314.
Now I want to build them in FSX.
Question 1 - I take it the Top Down view in FSX has changed...
First off I am not a aircraft modeler. I have done some .air and cfg file tweaking
over the years but it's been a while.
I am trying to set up Mike Stone's Boeing B314 Clipper for use in FSX.
In FS9 the aircraft sits normally....nice and level in the water. But under FSX she...
I'm looking into one of the ground texture replacement
I know the "usual suspects" so to speak like Ultimate
Terrain, FScene and Ground Environment....what others are out there?
I will start with FS2004 replacement then FSX.
One thing I find confusing is...
First off let me just say I'm no rookie at FS but this has me stumped.
I was halfway through building an airport for a buddy. All of a sudden FS9 started acting up. I would start a flight at the new airport and no matter if I started flying or went into SLEW mode FS9 would suddenly pop into a...
I am building a "from scratch" new airport. I used AFCAD to
place a large concrete parking apron. Later I decided to add a
grass texture around the edges of the concrete apron. The
easiest of course is to place another ground poly larger than
the concrete apron.
What I've found strange...
