Addon Scenery and Enhancements / Design Question
« on: February 04, 2011, 09:24:22 PM »
I'm wondering if it's ok to pick the brains of you designers that did up this scenery please?

I want to replace a terminal building (this is in Northern Ontario, not in Misty). I don't know of any way to eliminate it from the default FSX scenery. So, is the only, or best way, to "remove" it is by covering it up with the terminal building you want by placing the new terminal exactly where the old terminal is? Are there any inherent problems with that, and if so, is there a better way of doing that?

I know this isn't really about Misty or even Orbx, but it might come in handy closer to "home" later on.

Thanks much for any advice.

General Discussion / Bush Flying & Aircraft Developers - Soap Box
« on: February 02, 2011, 06:59:22 PM »
It seems to me, after having been in this FS "business" since the days of SubLOGIC (yeah, I know - shutup Dusty  >:( ) that even today, with FSX being the best ever for bush flying, and developers like Orbx and FSAddon's (Tongass) giving us some of the best bush flying areas ever, we bush pilots are still getting ignored by most of the aircraft developers. Yeah, we do have some good machine, but we still don't have an Otter, Turbine Otter, Aztec, Shrike Commander 500, or King Air (C90 or B200). I get the feeling that if we were to get on the forums and ask for a new Airbus 330, complete with FMS, we'd have one in 6 months. But for YEARS we've been begging for the above machines (and the 185, which we finally have now, along with the Beaver and Twin Otter), and nobody is willing to take it on, even though one would think that the developer (as long as it was a good developer) would end up raking in the cash. Either I'm dead wrong about that, or they haven't figured that out yet. People have even been on Carenado's forums requesting those airplanes, and in the end we got a Cessna 340. Not sure how the sales are going for that, but I don't think it's a huge hit. The Baron is nice, but there's a Baron in FSX (not great, but not that bad either). They did the 208, which isn't bad after they finally got most of the bugs worked out, but again, there's one in FSX. Last time I checked, there was no Aztec (nor ever has been), C90 (never has been), Shrike Commander (not sure, but there sure isn't one for FSX), etc. I wonder if it's time we started emailing developers (not going on the forums - they don't read those things) demanding equal time? I'll bet you if we demanded an A330 with full FMS, we'd have one in 6 months. We have enough of those. Thoughts?

General Discussion / Locations?
« on: January 31, 2011, 11:56:30 AM »
I've noticed in some descriptions of the various sceneries, it tells you how to find a camp/lodge/whatever in FSX, and in the other descriptions, it does not (this is not the attached map I'm referring to). This might be the root of my question about not being able to find Hunter Bay Cannery (under Troubleshooting). So my question is, are all the camps/locations in the FSX database (i.e. do they all have start points) and which will show up on the GPS, or only select ones? No problem either way, but I might be thinking I've got a problem of a camp not showing up on the map, when in fact it's not supposed to.

Thanks much  :)

General Discussion / 'Misty's Place' Question
« on: January 31, 2011, 11:41:33 AM »
Well, your outstanding scenery gives us a place to go. The attached stories about those places gives us a reason to go there. This is about as good as it gets guys  :).

I'm not at home right now (thus the Readme isn't available to me at the moment), so can I ask, how long is the runway at Misty's Place? Thinking a trip is in order and need to plan what I can take up there.

Thanks much  ;)

Took a ride into Khutz in the 185 last Saturday. Had a chance to walk around with "BOB" and take in some of the sights there. Nice place!

Congrats on the new site and a spectacular piece (very LARGE piece  ;D) of work here, and on an excellent new website. I can't wait to get flying in this area. Thanks very, very much for your hard work (which is indeed, considerable!) and dedication. It's very, very much appreciated.
