    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.

    Version 1.0.0


    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.

    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

    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.

    My wife gave me the ride of my life for my 50th birthday with the Matt Hall Racing team at Lake Macquarie yesterday. It was the best 13 minutes of flying bar none. My stomach was a bit queezy for about an hour after but at least I didnt vomit in the cockpit, and I could still walk straight when I got out. A huge thanks to Col at Matt Hall Racing, who looked after me well and is an exceptional pilot. A couple of photos below and video link . Enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7OGkad3eF0&t=681s [edit by Bruce............ video starts at min 11, wind back to start then sit back & enjoy ]

    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...

    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.

    OZx YPKS Parkes NSW

    Version 1.0.0


    Parkes is a well serviced Airport that has an Aero Club, a Training School, aircraft maintenance business, and a refuelling agent, all operating on the airport grounds. Parkes most famous land mark is man made, the CSIRO Radio Telescope is located 25kms north of town on the Newell Highway. Parkes is also the home to the annual Elvis festival. Approximately 32,000 passengers pass through Parkes Airport each year Installation: Extract the Parkes airport folder to your addon scenery folder and activate in FSX. The OZx folder contents need to go into the OZx_Lib folder to ensure all objects are visible. Thanks to the beta testers - Bruce, Flukey, Gazza, TerribleT, Aussiman, and anyone else who I have forgotten who helped in this airport. Thanks also to soarfly concepts for the use of their airport lighting objects in this airport. Craig

    Note to self

    When you lose your C drive, drink coffee BEFORE attempting a re-install of Windows. This will prevent erasing the back up drive with all your scenery and airplane installers by mistake. Re-installing everything the hard way. Thank goodness my registration codes were on a different drive, so I know where to download stuff. I hate stupid mistakes. Sigh Sue

    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,

    G'day fello flight simmers. Today I would like to share with you something new and special for the Australian flight simulation community. For many years the demand for PR sceneries and detailed airports and regions has been constantly growing. Now little know developer Norm Gibson from Gibsonsceneries has been toiling away for many thousands of hours to bring us all his first commercial software addon. Like many of us, Norm wanted more from his flight sim experience and has taken his passion to the last frontier of Australia. The Northern Territory. This product is compiled from resampled from 15m Landsat 8 Satellite Imagery produced by Earthstar Geographics, the same Imagery is used in various Commercial and Military Simulators. The goal of Gibson Sceneries is to cover large areas of real scenery at economical prices for the flight simulator enthusiast or professional whether it be for simulating fast Tactical Jet Fighters, Military Transport flights, Commuter and Domestic Airline flights or General Aviation Aircraft flying at medium to high altitudes.The scenery is perfect for enroute flight simulation. Take-off from a detailed airport, climb and fly en-route over "real" world scenery then descend into one of your other detailed airports. This is PR only, so Airports or autogen are not included. But I can say that Aussiex, Ant's, Aerosoft & Orbx sotware package addons work perfectly with this pr. The blends are extremely welldone. The scenery is not suited for low level VFR flights in slow aircraft, although the scenery is acceptable in low and fast Tactical Fighter aircraft.The scenery adds to the realism of simulated flight whether it be for recreating historical missions, commercial airline flights, military training or general aviation interest. This is best suited at this point in time to High altitude flying, be it IFR or VFR as thats where you will get the best and the most out of this package. Shallow coastal water imagery is blended with the simulated water to give a natural look to the coastlines. The PR also shows every real world and existing Airport, airfeild, farm or private strip throughout the entire Northern Territory. This initself allows for the increased development of Third party airfields to be included into this fantastic Package. The PR covers border to border coverage and shows some of the most spectacular locations across the NT. I have spent many hours flying the NT package and throughouly enjoyed every minute of what I see out the window of the aircraft. I love the fact that I can see clearly every creek, river, mountian, key locations such as Kakadu, Lichfeild national park,Mines, Bush fires and the list goes on. If you do decide to do a low level run up one of the many creeks and rivers, just watch out for the crocs.. Ok so lets look at which platforms are supported with this awesome PR package.The PR package is ready for purchase and Downloading for Microsoft Flight Simulator FSX & SE, Lockheed Martin Prepar3d v1, v2, v3 & v4. You can get it buy simply going over to http://www.gibsonsceneries.com and purchasing the NT. The pricing is very reasonable $19.95 USD. If you want to see more of Australia get the PR treatment, then do yourself and your flying experience a favour and get over to Gibson Sceneries and not only support Norm, but also the growth of the Australian flight simulation community. I firmly believe that this is a worthy investment for my flight simulation experience and realistically the $19.95 USD will never cover the cost of the thousands of development hours that has been put into making this package for all of us. Below are a whole series of pictures that I took whilst I was flying all around the NT. These are not the Developers images and do not reflect the quality of his fantastic images that he has taken to showcase this product. Like the old saying is for the NT, If you never never go, you will never never know and no greater statement could be said for this PR package. For those of you who are skeptical about screenshots, there is also a link below which I loved. QANTAS Promotional https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=127&v=qAWNhqI6BWI RAAF C-130 Promotional https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rT58DxRBgIg&t=255s I throughly look forward to getting your feed back and comments on my first impressions of this PR package and certainly look forward to seeing the other states and territories of Australia being done. Remember buy purchasing this product, this not only supports Gibson Sceneries and the Global flight simulation community, but it also significantly contributes to the purchase of more PR for Australia. If there is enough support for the Product, Gibson sceneries may even be able to purchase a much higher Resolution PR supply to truely make our flying experience "As Real As It Gets". A Special Thanks must got out to Norm & Gibson Sceneries for creating a fantastic product.

    As always; even though I haven't been flight simming for about two years, I will donate Jay. However, a word of warning.. I signed up for a lifetime deal on other sites; only to find that after a few years they were dissolved. No come back. Still here is $100:00, hope it helps. Cheers Hank

    Version V6.7.1


    Welcome at Vlietburg Vlietburg is a fictional commuter city in the southwest of the Netherlands. Situated near industries, harbors and major cities like Rotterdam and Dordrecht. This town contains a rich and dense network of bus lines which transport the inhabitants of Vlietburg across the city and to the main stations. With two city centers, two international convention centers, an industrial park, a technical university and some recreational areas there is a lot of transport needed. The city is served by HTMBuzz services which run a bus network that contains ten lines that all are running across the city. For those who want to stay up late and like to party there are four-night lines. Enough variety along the routes: highways, narrow streets, bus lanes, big squares, bus terminals and small country roads. As a driver for the local bus company: HTMBuzz it’s your job to transport all those citizens along the roads of Vlietburg. Download advise If you have Vlietburg V6 or higher already on your system you only have to download the Vlietburg V6.7.rar. If you have version 5 or an earlier version you have to download both rar files. In all cases you have to download the patchfile. It's recommended that you play Vlietburg V6.7 with collisions off. Read the Read Me for more information. Disclaimer Installing of this map is at your own risk. The builder of the map is in any way not responsible for any damage done to your Omsi installment or any other soft or hardware on your system. Requirements Omsi 2.2 or higher The following payware add-ons: o Hamburg Day & Night o Vienna (the 2014 version or both new versions (24A & 23A)) o Stadtbus O305 At least 4 GB of Ram CFF Explorer to make Omsi use 4 GB All content from the default map (Berlin) and from the payware add-ons is not included in the download. Support Support is given at Word Of Omsi in the ready for download section only. No support by PM or in other sections of the forum. Be aware that I'm not always on line and I don’t live in Vlietburg!! So have patience when I don’t react within five minutes. Due to the fact that the map is not further developed support will be limited. Vienna Vienna is needed for this map. Vlietburg is made with the old 2014 version of Vienna. If you have the new versions of Vienna (you need them both) please use the Vienna objects batch file you find in the Omsi root directory. It copies all needed Vienna files to the right directory. Repaints & standard bus The HTMBuzz repaints for the A21 are made by Jokervation. The A21 is made by V3D studio but is slightly altered to suit Vlietburg. Therefore this bus comes in a separate directory. This will be the last incarnation of Vlietburg. After this release, the map will not be further developed or patched. From this moment on support for this map will be limited. From September 1ste 2017 onward this map will be public domain and everyone can do with it what he or she likes within the limits of the copyrights of the content of the map.
