    Many people that use this site are probably not aware of these facts. In the beginning (the 1990's) there was Jaykae.. A man with high computer skills and a love of flight simming. He it was that operated and ran the system that allowed we simmers access to a place to discuss our beloved hobby.. and to develop the sim via many great addons. Jay carried the cost of the tech side of things personally, and over the years he was the one that ensured that Ozx survived. I have no idea of the amount of money Jay put into Ozx, and to some extent Orbx, but I do know it was huge. In recent years he has asked for help, and we are proud to give that help. Thank you Jaykae. without you simming would not be the same.. Teecee.

    I thought that plenty had been said about Jay and his support for OZx (unwavering under the (orbx in lower case) let down), but I cannot remain silent and not express my total gratitude for the fantastic service that you Jay have provided along the years ...Teecee and Terry's words are expressing all our gratitude... THANK YOU... Jorge

    Thank you Teecee, it has been very hard to go from where I used to be to just having to contract and not be able to pay for it all anymore so your kindness and help has and always will be immensely appreciated and posts like these are incredibly humbling

    To be honest, looking at the way Orbx has marketed Australia v1, they have indirectly relied on OZx freeware to supply the extra airports to make the region really interesting (and it really is interesting for VFR). Now, for Aus v2, they are going to have to either make a whole heap of airports themselves for VFR, or they are going to have to piggyback off OZx again. I just wish that Orbx would at no cost help the community speed up the completed development of OZx for P3D version 4. That way they would be able to market Aus v2 as probably the most amazing region ever created for ESP sims and without having to add a lot of development cost on their end - and they would get browny points with the community to boot. It would be win-win for everyone. Should I post this on Orbx forums? Cheers.

    Hi all, Some of you may or may not know of Vertigo Studios?! For quite a while they were creating some incredible aircraft for FSX (and had a few rippers in the works). A while back things weren't looking too good and as far as I know, the studio pretty much closed down. It's been a while since I swung past the Vertigo Studios Website (http://www.vertigostudios.co.uk/). For a while now it has been in maintenance mode, but it is back up and running now with a slight revamp by the looks of it, they now have their own online store. I noticed that there was a 30% off sale for Halloween but it appears that has ended, still, it looks like their whole range is on sale, so if FSX is your sim of choice feel free to head over and check out their online store, you just might find yourself a new aircraft for your hangar! Not to mention I think they need as much support as possible if they are getting back up and running with development. With the emergence of P3D it is unfortunate that the range isn't available to that market... Maybe it's in the works, I don't know...

    This airport is a combined project by myself, Elias Smith, Watkin Tench (Liam) and a complete AI file provided by TerribleT (Terry). Toowoomba Airport is officially known as Toowoomba City Aerodrome and is both licensed and certified. The aerodrome is owned and operated by Toowoomba Regional Council. Being certified means the airfield is able to have airlines and larger charter aircraft operate from the aerodrome. No scheduled passenger services currently operate from Toowoomba Airport, with most commercial airlines moving to Wellcamp nearby. The airport is used by Darling Downs Aero Club, CareFlight, Royal Flying Doctor Service and Toowoomba Airport Services.

    And don't forget that before FSX and OZx there was FS9 and VOZ and who ran it all for us: And where does the VOZ legacy forum still reside? Right here courtesy of: So here's to that fella

    Not true OZx is a by product of FTX AU, Orbx never relied upon OZx and in fact they cut all ties with OZx a few yrs back OZx was formed because of a fall out between 2 people, then it grew from there and eventually shrunk from there a few yrs later Its only for a small handful of loyal and dedicated developers that this place remains alive as majority of the former devs here went over to Orbx and never returned Even today many Australian Orbx forum users dont even know what OZx is or what it has to offer in downloads, once FTX went global the interest for OZx sadly diminished. If FTX AU2 goes photo real with updated airports, there could be a very good chance there will be very little interest for this place(excluding the bus sim guys) especially if OZx pre ftx au2 is incompatible fingers crossed they dont go that way otherwise a lot of hard work will be lost

    Nothing to do with wisdom Noel, simply a matter of personal choice..That's the beauty of simming, your choice of where to fly and when. I love Aus, even more so now I am away from my spiritual home, but several hours flying alone over desert or similar terrain does tend to be boring. Thank the Lord for mines and cities and all the Ozx addons I say. (and bring on the new Orbx). Teecee.

    Absolutely. Well said Teecee. I installed OzX sceneries before I installed any other addons when I first got in to FSX years ago. It was so amazing and continues to be. I have known from the start that Jay has been the upholder and supporter of this (and other) forums and it is so much appreciated. Who knows where we would be without OzX. Whether it is as a scenery developer, repainter, modeller, visitor or contributor to the forums, or any one of us installing the amazing downloads on our PCs, we should all be grateful we have OzX to turn to. Cheers,

    good, the wet season and inland bodies of water looked wrong both in fsx and even more in p3d noting that scenery abilities have increased ten fold since AU v1 it would be great if they could capture it correctly Gibos scenery and scotts images do central and northern the justice it deserves, its not just a flat boring landscape when I caught up with Jankees last month, he was telling me that the Pilbara is one of the oldest bits of land on the planet that remains uncontaminated Im sure if he reads this he can elaborate his recent findings in the NT i would like to see the waterfalls that are scattered all over the NE WA that feed into the Timor sea during the wet, people spend $1000s to go on a cruise and visit them during when there is water running, cape londonderry is a very popular place with crocodile creek and the twin falls eye candy is nice, but correct eye candy is better

    Pat, you keep banging this same drum. They are working on Gold Coast and the entire Australian continent. What are you going to do with yourself when they get released? Not buy them because they are too expensive? Give it a rest.

    terrain mesh

    Hello vh-eee, Addon Mesh can make a big difference to the terrain, scenery and airports. Most of us long time OZx users began our Australian scenery Regions with Orbx blue gold green & red but then most will have updated to the digital download of Australia SP3 and 4, default Mesh is just not a high enough LOD when using Orbx and OZx. The close connection between enhanced Orbx regional scenery and the OZx airfields actually works best with an enhanced Mesh product made specifically for AU by Holger Sandmann. If you have FTX Australia SP4 then you can download through Orbx Direct / FTXCentral3 a freeware Mesh for Australia "AU Holgermesh" 76m terrain mesh. There is little to be gained by using a higher LOD mesh than 76m in Australia, as the more gentle 76m mesh represents Australia Orbx and OZx at their best as they were developed using Holgermesh. A higher LOD mesh can often times create plateau and odd undulations at some airfields, I notice this effect when my (FreeMeshX Australia & Oceania) is activated. Hope that helps

    Roma Airport

    Hi there, I am really curious to know whether anyone would be happy enough to do an airport for us all please? Its Roma Airport, it is located south west of Brisbane. Currently Qantaslink fly all of there Dash 8's out there to and from Brisbane and Charleville. The airport is also a base for a couple RFDS B200's and a Careflight Bell 412. It would be really great if someone could do this airport as it is known as "the busiest regional airport in Queensland" having 100+ arrival and departures each week.
