  1. Glad it helps John. I've done a bit of GE browsing and so far 2 PR backgrounds (WIP) I've just called them by the nearest name I can see on the map. One I've called Baldy Creek S 35 04' 43" = E 148 49' 55" and the other One Tree Hill S 35 08' 39.66" E 149 02' 34.83" - This one has pretty crap GE imagery but I grabbed a better PR from Yahoo Satellite in SBuilderX. I'll keep looking mate. Cheers Tony
  2. This might help a bit. I've grabbed these from my Natmap raster disc. The blue circles with a line inside indicate landing areas and the line is the approximate direction of the strip. There are 4 maps NW, NE, SW and SE with Canberra in the top or bottom left or right hand corners of each. If you see one that could be interesting it's worth a look at in GE. Some of these could very well be in areas that GE has crap imagery for, others could very well have been abandoned and returned to scrub or paddock. If you see something interesting and can't pick it up in GE then copy the map, put a yellow cross of circle on it and post it here or PM it to me and I'll zoom in on Natmap and find the co-ords for you. All 4 maps I've put up in the Gallery. Cheers Tony

  7. New Scenery Objects

    Nice Mark! No.4 looks like a Bougainvillia. You could do a few colour variations of this one as there are many variations around and they do get mixed and matched quite q bit in plantings around the place. Cheers Tony
  8. FSX Airport Selection

    Just part of the AFCAD type work required to make crosswind runways work in the Sim. Just leave them there and ignore them. Cheers Tony

  10. sportstar

    Found this to get a bit more information http://www.evektor.com.au/sportstar.php Nice looking aircraft. Then did a search at Avsim for "evektor" and found repaints for EV97 Eurostar -One pointed to http://files.fsnordic.net/Flight_Simulator/Aircraft/General_Aviation/index.php to download the original aircraft. Looks much the same aircraft from the piccies on the Evektor and FSnordic sites. Cheers Tony ps - downloaded the latest version but haven't had a look at it yet.

  18. Voz 1.8 complete

    You're not a pest mate( If you did happen to become one, someone here would soon let you know ) If you don't ask you'll never find out. Voz was made for FS9 and some things will still work in FSX but as Voz files are a conglomeration of some bits will work some bits won't work I wouldn't try it in FSX. BOB, if you're talking about the download from Orbx, is for FSX only. Cheers Tony.
  19. Autogen

    G'day Darryl, I recommend that if you are just starting out with Annotator, go to AVSIM or Flightsim.com and download... using_the_autogen_annotator_264833.zip You'll find this tutorial should start you off then if you have any problems come back here and you will find help.. The .bgl you need to open is the Photoreal (PR) file. Cheers Tony
  20. Thanks for that Jay !! - I've never had any unmetered usage from Bigpond before - logged in now !! Cheers Tony
  21. Top Secret. Do Not Look!

    Welcome to the forums Aaron, I don't know if you are familiar with Ant's previous work with FSX scenery but if you click on the 'downloads' button on the top of this page and go to '3rd party addons' and the 'Anthony Lynch Sceneries' - I think that's the sequence but you should be able to find your way - you'll find Ant's 9 volumes of Aussie Airports he's done for Australia. I you don't have them already then GET Them Mate - you won't be disappointed. You could try one or two but I'de just download and install the complete set. I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. Cheers Tony
  22. MegaUpload Donation explained..

    As others have said already Jay, I trust your judgement mate. Go for it if you think it's the best way. Cheers Tony
  23. Removing AI Shipping

    You could just go into Setting Display Traffic and pull the Shipping back to zero ! Cheers Tony
  24. Mareeba photos needed - help please

    G'day Prof, There's an FS9 Wilga at Flightsim.com which seems to work O.K. in FSX.... Search for fsxwikdw.zip This is a "Tweety bird" re-paint I was mucking about with. Someone may be able to turn it into a static (or add as a limited movement AI) if you wanted to put a "local" into your Mareeba. Cheers Tony
  25. Top Secret. Do Not Look!

    While I agree with TonyM that this is well worthy of Payware status, I'de advise a bit of caution - probably seek a bit of expert legal advice ! (Free if you know someone). Once you start asking people to pay or donate you come under the radar of the A.T.O. and other nefarious Govt. Departments who can give you a lot of extra work to do - keeping records, audits, becoming a registered charity collector, etc. which could end up becoming a real P.I.T.A. once you have to start dealing with Govt. Departments. Not trying to discourage you Ant from the great work you keep putting out !! Just a word of caution. Look before you leap mate!! Cheers Tony.
