OZx P3D Libraries Open Beta *** UPDATED 27/11/2017*****

Question

No problems Jorge, I did grab that update. For the most part, everything is pretty much intact as far as I can tell (across VIC, TAS, NT and SA). The standalone (not embedded within OZx v3-3.5), such as Coober Pedy, Broken Hill, Devonport, Flukey's NT fields, Stawell all seem to be fine... I got through most of SA today and things are looking good apart from the very occasional missing object.

It is a shame to think that ORBX AU V2 will probably make OZx scenery a thing of the past... There are some real beauties (almost ORBX freeware standard) amongst the mix though that I hope will stand the test of time, at least for the next few years.

Maybe at some stage, it'll be a matter of picking those ones out and seeing what can be done to keep them going?....

As far as I understand from Holger Sandmann's posting on a coming Orbx Australia V2 there will not be a "total rebuilding". There should be a great chance to use the fantastic OZx sceneries furthermore (hopefully)

The 3 sisters in Katoomba are from the orbx libraries  not OZx, they are a part of FTX AU or the old FTX blue region

I'm pretty sure that this is not the case, because the early FTX AU didn't place any new objects, it was just a replacement for textures, vector and landclass data. PNW was the first region that had custom objects and enhanced default airports. I'm pretty sure that Katoomba/YKAT doesn't even exist in default FSX / P3D nor in FTX AU. I bought FTX AU a few months after a trip to Australia, and I remember that I wanted to know how Katoomba looked in the simulator compared to the real life photos I took there. And I was disappointed that the airfield didn't even exist. That's why I was happy to find that one of the OZx packages included YKAT, and I did my first OZx flight from there to check out the Three Sisters and if I'm not mistaken they were modeled as a 3D object in FSX but disappeared when I switched to P3D. Maybe one of the developers could chime in and shed some light on this.

Fabs79 I removed OZx from FSX and the model of the 3 sisters is still there , cannot be OZx..

don't know where it is coming from , have a few checks but cannot find the file..check with ORBX and ensure they put it on in Australia V2...

I found that it is in FTXAU25_Scenery ORBX_Katoomba_Three_Sisters_PLC.bgl ,  ORBX_3sisters.bgl  and three .bmp files in the texture folder...

Im more than pretty sure they are and I can bet my left nut on it, as Im from blue mtns and i can confirm it was introduced in FTX blue well  before OZX made any local airfields,

ORBX even made several posts on their forums regarding the introduction the 3 sisters and even posted preview images. ORBX regions dont only contain textures they also contain objects like the sydney harbour bridge  etc, etc there are a lot of us that where here before the days OZX started and before FTX started

as Jorge made the effort to confirm it, it maybe a case of you needing to delete the Orbx libs and re downloading them or raising a support post with them as its their object or ensuring that the object flow 2 is activated in the addons.xml
