WilliamB,
I read somewhere recently, can't remember if it was here, that if you contact MS directly they'll provide you with a way to activate. Worth a try, and good luck.

I image that an overwhelmingly large percentage of these flights are cargo carriers, not passenger flights. Lots of FEDEX flights out there. Besides, there's still a legitimate and vital need for passenger traffic. Also, a number of these are private, GA flights, not commercial.

There are actually thousands of aircraft of all sorts in the air. Check out https://flightaware.com/live/ to see real time flight tracking. The skies of the US, the UK, Europe and China are loaded.

My CPU is not even close to being exhausted.

I know, and that may be why you don't have the tiled squares, among other things. I'm just saying that tiled squares in other instances can be the result of GPU overload. The spike is something else that's messed up. Just sayin'.

Often those kind of tiled artifacts are caused by slow loading textures due to a strain on the GPU.

Prepar3D-Version 5 / Re: ReqObjLib FSX3PD Part 1111 4.15.2020_2.zip

You are correct about the the corrupt library download. This is really strange because it was reposted a few weeks ago and the zip file was fine. (The reason for the repost was a few lines in one of the read me files were corrected and Doug changed the file name I believe. Other than that, nothing else in functionality or content changed.) Doug will have to see what's going on and try to figure out how the zip became corrupted.

If you need it in the meantime then you can download it from here. I'll leave the link and file up for a few days until the corrupt zip is fixed.

As for the scenery object tester, I don't get a 404 and it downloads fine for me. Make sure that you are getting it from the object libraries page.

This topic needs to be moved to the Object Libraries for RTMM section.

Got that email too. I'm thinking it must have gone to registered users using the Pro edition.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying about DX 11.

Uhhhh.... I don't think so until I win the lottery, which I never waste my hard earned money playing anyway.

Just to mess with you, I've worn out 12 keyboards, and counting, just from accessing this particular thread over and over, day in and day out in my spare time. Keeps me so busy that sometimes I don't take the time to shower for several weeks at a time.  Apparently I'm the only one who's been doing it, unless Norm has been doing it behind my back too.;D

Prepar3D-Version 5 / Re: P3Dv5 Problem with Hardened Object Surfaces
« on: April 19, 2020, 08:05:11 AM »
I made quite a few hardened surfaces for the custom BWEP objects; oli platforms, helipads. roof tops, etc. It would be a shame if they are useless in PDV5.

Help and Troubleshooting / Re: BWEP ZIP Library problem
« on: April 17, 2020, 09:04:38 AM »
No, the issue was that there were actually links to different library files of the same name; a link on the BWEP page, and a link on the Object Library page. The link on the BWEP page pointed to a "good" set of files, and the Object Library link pointed to an incomplete set of files. In other words, two sets of files mistakenly were posted, one good and one bad Took a while to figure out what was going on because we trouble shooters were looking at the different links and getting different information. Clear as mud, right?  :)

You made several hang glider pilots very angry. FAA licence revoked!

Rangerrick,
If you look at my profile photo, I flew in this Otter into a Quebec bush camp last June. According to the pilot/air service owner, it was one of two remaining piston driven Otters left in North America. (I don't remember where he told me the other one was.) This one was scheduled to be refitted for a turbine engine this winter. It was a real pleasure to sit in the front seat next to him and he even let me take the controls for about 15 minutes! No kidding. Thrill of a lifetime.

Forgot to mention, this was the second from the last Otter ever manufactured. Here's a neat Aircraft Information page about this Otter's registration from the Canadian Civil Aircraft Registry.
