Re: HU -RAF/RN modern scenery designers

Thanks for the HU Hobby. The readme says they are for FS2004 but the download contains the .mdl files amongst other things so I may be able to convert them to FSX models for use in my Lossiemouth project. :dancer: Edit: I DL'd them and had a look at the models using the Instant Scenery app. There ap...

Re: Llanbedr - EGOD

I have found that most Rwy 12 stuff is pre-FSX and in many cases pre-FS9 too! Some of the stuff works in FSX but as you say the textures are BMP files. I have converted the textures to DDS in some of my experiments and they work fine that way. I just tried the other scenery in stock FSX and while I ...

..and yes they appear to be for FSX only....BUT....for GenX which I don't have. :-(

Not sure if they will work with a stock FSX build.

Re: Llanbedr - EGOD

Something fisshy going on. I've removed all my GenX stuff and any addon EGOD's and even the fault runways are below ground level... My head hurts! :lol: That seems odd Ben as I fly from Llanbedr a lot in default FSX terrain and all my runways, taxiways, etc. sit at ground level. :dunno: Did you set...

Re: Llanbedr - EGOD

I'll give it a try for you Ben. I used to do a LOT of plane spotting at Llanbedr while camping at the adjacent Shell Island. Lots of happy memories! :) EDIT: I just checked and it looks like there are some problems on my system using FSX + Accel and no scenery mods in that area (I do have the Snowdo...

Re: FSX on a modest PC

My specs: Pentium 4 3.2Ghz, 1Gb DDR, Nvidia 6600 256Mb...not what you would call cutting edge. I ran a rig only a little bit better than that (P.4 3.4 Ghz, 2 Gb Ram, 6800GS 256 Mb GFX card) for quite a while before I upgraded to my new, more powerful, rig. I was more than happy with the performance...

Especially considering all the computers used to get them there were probably 286 based and running in DOS! :lol:

Re: New Nvidia drivers today

I got them last night after reading the first post but only tried them out in Armed Assault and they seemed to work OK. I will check out FSX later to see how they perform. I was interested to see your mention of CTDs Rick as I too have had some of those recently but put it down to some messing aroun...
