    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.

    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.

    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

    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,

    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

    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

    [MAP] Manly ACT THREE

    For those that follow this thread here is a little update from behind the scenes. All up I think we are looking at AT least 500+ different journals for the whole week combined. (or rosters, or rota's or whatever it is you call it in your part of the world). As I am sure you could all appreciate this takes an enormous amount of work to individually create that amount of journals. Now before you all start yelling performance issues, there will be steps taken to reduce the amount of ai buses on the road so you will be able to adjust the timetabling priorities in your options screen before launching the map. We are also hoping that performance issues may be addressed by the simple fact that if you are driving in say Narraweena, then tiles with the city, and the spit and gore hill and the like wont actually be loaded until you are near them, if indeed you are heading that way. This is a mammoth task, and everything that can be done to ensure as smooth as possible running for lower end systems will be done. Now, as I have told Chuck today, I am not well, I have not been for the last 3 months. But rest assured, it is still getting done from my end, albeit a little slower than I would like, but if it this is the last thing I do, this map will have just as much realism as what ACT TWO did. That I guarantee both you and @Chuckinho Just rest assured the ai and the journals will be as close to the timings as OMSI will allow and that the realistic experience will be as good, if not better than what you had in ACT TWO. Cheers Dave Just as I remember it (well perhaps not the ad) lol

    Yes and no. The amount of passengers on the bus is depending on the amount of passengers on the street. In the global file you can set the passenger density per timeslot. Keep in mind that the amount is also based on the amount of passengers that you allowed in the general settings. For example: If the pedestrian setting in the general setting is 100. [trafficdensity_passenger] 8.000 (the time of the day) 1.500 (Factor of the passengers on basis of the general settings) So, in this case, there will be 150 (1.5 x 100) pedestrians around. When you use a number below 1 (1.000 x 100 = 100) like 0.400 you have 40 pedestrians around. This way you have also influence on the amount of passengers that enter a bus. Of course the number of entering passengers is always depending on the values given in the max and min fields of the busstop cube. However, I have enough proof that Omsi not always works conform those figures. I hope this make sense.

    Les ,I tried it and it did the same , the problem seems topo be in the installer , it is hard coded to go to the Flight Simulator x folder which does not exist. Start the install and do not change anything , say OK to create the new Folder, it will install in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator X , in there you will find everything..., move the folders to your sim and try ...

    Fresh Install of P3D v3....

    Guys, it might be worth investing in a ghosting software and a 2nd or 3rd drive the same size or twice or 3 times ( I have 3 times) as your FS install. Before installing anything run a ghost then if something goes wrong you can just ghost the best install from the ghostdrive. in 10 years I have never had to do a reinstall from scratch

    What are you working on?

    Today I began a new project pack of repaints. Breng Arhnem/Nijmegen (dutch cities). This pack will include the breng and Brengdirect MAN Lion's city bus, The CNG citaro Facelift (the CNG tank from morphi is not the same as what they have for real unfortunately but close enough. ) The Citaro Facelift G (half real repaint). The facelift G does not have a CNG tank. Yes I know of the mod from Finlay but that has a lot of problems with repaints which I have tried and failed to get it working and the Citaro G from Alterrr.

    This folder contains a repaint for the A2A Wings of Silver Lockheed L-049 Constellation. It shows L-1049 N6504C (c/n 4166) in the first colours of Seaboard & Western Airlines, an all-cargo company based in new York that started in 1946 with DC-4's, but in 1954 bought 9 L-1049 Constellations, of which N6504C was one. It was leased to BOAC for one year, in 1955, being painted in BOAC colors, but retaining its US registration. The aircraft traded hands several times with the last owner being North American Aircraft Trading and registered as 5T-TAC. In 1968 while being used in the Biafra Airlift the aircraft was destroyed in Nigeria. Repaint by Jan Kees Blom, based on the paintkit by A2A.
