    I guess that would depend on the actual imagery then, if it doesn't look like it has a shallow end and a deep end in the imagery it probably won't in the sim either. You can maybe clone stamp some...

    Never used tileproxy but what you see in the GPS and map view are additional polys tagged "GPS_Hydro_Polygons". The map won't see a watermask, if you see anything at all in the GPS or map it will be...

    If there's a scenerylib_***.cfg for the airport you installed also in the scripts folder you should be able to just doubleclick FTXconfigurator.exe to insert the scenery lib entry. It won't appear to...

    The installer triggers a utility in the Orbx\scripts folder called FTXconfigurator.exe to insert the scenery library entry into the scenery.cfg. If you don't have at least the orbxlibs installed you...

    PlanG can also export an airport list. Run the "build navigation database" thing first to make sure it's up to date with all your addons first.

    Thanks for your input Jim, I've been a mechanic for about 45 years now and my successes far outweigh my failures.

    OK here, give this a try. The bridge is separate but if you place it as another object placement at the exact same coords & heading as the main carrier body it falls together seamlessly. I filled in...

    I have the FSGenesis LC and it seems pretty detailed, if anything small cities are played up a little more than they shoud be but it does make VFR navigation easier. It did a good job of depicting my...

    OK, I gave up on trying to clean this thing up in gmax, the problem is exporting to .3ds and importing that into gmax gives you a bazillion tiny little triangles and it blows all smoothing away so...

    I lock mine at 33 in DX10 and I always locked them at 40 in DX9. I saw something from Beau Hollis about vsync and leaving a couple extra frames for overhead which is why I use 33 rather than 30. I...
