  3. Always ask-Never assume

    His request approved, the CNN News photographer quickly used a cell phone to call the local airport to charter a flight.. He was told a twin-engine plane would be waiting for him at the airport. Arriving at the airfield, he spotted a plane warming up outside a hanger. He jumped in with his bag, slammed the door shut, and shouted, 'Let's go'. The pilot taxied out, swung the plane into the wind and took off. Once in the air, the photographer instructed the pilot, 'Fly over the valley and make low passes so I can take pictures of the fires on the hillsides.' 'Why?' asked the pilot. 'Because I'm a photographer for CNN' , he responded, 'and I need to get some close up shots.' The pilot was strangely silent for a moment, finally he stammered, 'So, what you're telling me, is . . . You're NOT my flight instructor?' "Life is short. Drink the good wine first"
  4. Unmetered Downloads

    It looks as though this facility is only available for OzX and FSX. VOZ1.8 is not such an enormous file anyway.
  5. Unmetered Downloads

    I understood that Internode users could download files ,eg VOZ1.8 Complete,on an unmetered basis. How do I go about doing this?
  6. YBBN update Missing buildings

    Rob, As a PS to my last post, if I do decide to reinstall VOZ1.8 I only need to apply the YBBN Update in the same way as all the other updates? I assume that YBBN Lite is part of VOZ1.8.
  7. YBBN update Missing buildings

    Thanks for the help Rob, I just checked my Addon Scenery/VOZ Scenery/Scenery folder and both of the files you list are there. One of life's little mysteries. I suppose that I could reinstall VOZ1.8 and try again but with all the updates I don't fancy going that route. I guess that I will just live with the Lite YBBN.
  8. YBBN update Missing buildings

    Thanks Robert, I started off installing the YBBN Update into the Addon scenery of my VOZ1.8 complete installation assuming that YBBN Lite was part of VOZ1.8. I now have the old YBBN scenery back OK by installing YBBN Lite as you suggested but would still like the update if the problem can be solved.
  9. Robert, I have just installed the update and find that there is now nothing at the domestic terminal except the gates. Any suggestions? In the worst case is there any way of restoring the original YBBN? John
  10. [ANNOUNCEMENT] It has to stop

    I too would like to endorse what Gazza and the others have said. Having been browsing the forum and occasionally posting since the very early VOZ days I seem to recall that something similar happened many years ago. Anyway simulated flying is what it is all about!
  11. I think that if you go to fs9/scenery/world/ scenery and find traffic030528. Rename it to say traffic030528.original and this should only leave your VOZ traffic files. I know what you mean about the buildings near the YPAD runway but like you I can't remember the fix. Happy VOZing
  12. An End of an Era!

    Don't tell me that I'm the only one still running FS9! The trouble is that I would need a new rig and while my current one is obsolete by computer standards there are more things I could spend >$1500 - $2000 on.
  13. No problems here and all the other VOZ downloads unzip as normal. Perhaps try another unzip program?
  14. VOZ Landclass

    Way back in the time of VOZ there was a sticky (I think) about how to create landclass using EZ Landclass. There was a link to a program that enabled you to substitute VOZ textures for the defaultFS9 textures. That link is now defunct and I wonder whether anyone still has the appropriate batch file in a computer somewhere?
  15. Photoreal Canberra

    Spud I shouldn't really have entered this topic as I had never installed VOZ1.8 complete but rather upgraded each new VOZ version as it was released.
