  1. The title says it all really! Would it be possible to rebuild (with PBR etc) the fabulous Lightnings (single- & twin-seaters) for MSFS (2020) please? I'd be more than willing to pay for the privilege again 😉 Many thanks Andy
  2. I entered the Registration-Key on the sticker inside my DVD case (starting AL*) into Update Datenbank. It accepted it and allowed me to download AS_AIRPORT-LUGANO_XPLANE.zip What has confused me is the mention of XPlane 11, implying this version is for both versions (10 & 11) of the sim, rather than just XP10 listed on the DVD box or just XP11 listed on the current version on the website.
  3. Many thanks for your reply Heinz 🙂 To be clear, Update Datenbank version I get with my XP10 DVD key is the same as the version pictured below? If not, can/should I use the Upgrade-Service to get the latest XP11 version? Thanks again Andy
  4. I have Lugano for XP10 on DVD. I'd also like to have Lugano for my XP11. I have used the Aerosoft Update page to register and download the latest version related to my DVD, which seems to imply it is compatible with both XP11 and XP10. What is the difference, if any, between this and the XP11 version currently sold online (I note an XP10 version is no longer listed)? Many thanks Andy
  5. An update for v5 would be very much appreciated please! For me its not only about the PBR of the bare metal exterior (I like camouflage Lightnings just as much) but also the PBR inside the cockpit, such as plastic parts, material on the ejection seat etc. After all this is where the flying is done and realism the most important.
  6. I have no idea how I missed this! I assumed there hadn't been any conversion done. Does this mean an updated model is available now? FWIW IMO I don't think it is so much a lack of interest in PBR for the Lightning as a lack of awareness. I reckon if more people knew it was available more people would be buying and downloading it Many thanks Andy
  7. One option is to export your Gmax models and load into Quixel (also happens to be discounted at the moment!), providing you happen to be a Photoshop user? This seems to be working well. Lots of discussion and instruction here: http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php/112316-PBR-Texturing-Introduction-to-3D-Workflow-in-Photoshop Andy
  8. The Lightning would make a fantastic subject for PBR textures in P3D v4.3... are upgrades being considered?
  9. I'd also like to see the cruise ships and tankers as AI traffic rather than static objects. That way 1) they won't seem so false because they'll always in the same place, day or night, year round; and 2) they can be edited by users to make schedules of their own choice, including replacing the ships with those of their choice, retro or otherwise. Perhaps such a modification from static to AI ships could be included in the next Gibraltar X update?? Many thanks indeed Andy
  10. Hi Sascha, Many thanks for your reply. Yes, that is correct. No, I expect not. Absolutely, and I have raised it on other threads. From what I recall there was an aspiration to make all new Installers/Updaters non-drive specific. The reason I've raised it here (rather than where I raised it before) is because the Helgoland Updater is new and I would've thought that by now this and all new Updaters would've be made non-drive specific. You are of course correct and I agree its time I started another thread about this elsewhere on the forum... Although we're certainly a minority, there are a large number of us who load our scenery on a 2nd, 3rd or other hard drive and not the same drive as FSX. Many thanks again Andy
  11. How can I go about applying this update if I have my Helgoland scenery installed on a drive other than the FSX drive?? Its frustrating enough that the Aerosoft Installers only allow you to install scenery to the same drive as FSX, but now its even more frustrating that having managed to move the scenery across to the drive of my choice the Update believes I don't have Helgoland installed! Even if Aerosoft won't change the Installer can you PLEASE at least change the Update so it recognises Helgoland on other drives.... its driving me nuts here! Many thanks in advance. Andy
  12. Hi Shaun, Many thanks for your reply, which confirms my suspicions. I'd reckoned the Installers are looking for FSX.exe, and that I'd have to relocate my Aerosoft scenery directories to my other hard drive. 'Tis a shame I have to go to that effort, given that I have a lot of Aerosoft scenery to install. Do you have a Suggestions Box? If so, could you add the ability to install scenery products to folders other than the FSX default. It would be wonderful to see the Installers updated progressively to include this. I understand that people like me who have multiple hard drive PCs are in the minority, but we're a growing minority. The relentless drive to squeeze extra FPS out of FSX is driving increasing numbers to install Flight Sim on a 2nd HD and scenery on a 3rd... or at least what was what came across on the many forums I read before buying my new PC. Anyhoo... that is my two pence for today! Thanks again for your help. Keep up the good work Andy
  13. I have several Aerosoft FSX scenery packages that I'd like to reinstall on my re-built PC. I now I have one hard drive for the Vista 64-bit OS, one for FSX Acceleration and another for scenery. I've tried installing my scenery on the 3rd hard drive but I always get the message "Couldn't find Microsoft Flight Simulator". How can I get around this? I've checked my registry and used the FS_Registry_Repair.exe utility, so this should be in order. I could install in the FSX directory and then copy the scenery across to the 3rd HD, but I don't want to have to do this for every single scenery package, and I want to keep my hard drives in order to save time on de-fragmenting.
  14. I'd just like to add my support for a Super Cub for FSX... Count me in!
  15. YES!! That was IT, I should have used Window's own Add/Remove Software facility. This initiated the Aerosoft Installers to properly Un-install, instead of me trying to delete things here and there. :oops: Once I'd done this I was able to install everything again (which took a few tens of seconds each, rather than the blink of an eye) and it all appeared in FSX with no error messages at all. Phew, what a relief! Many thanks for all your help. Hopefully this silly error will be of help to others in the future. Just to prove everything is working OK in FSX Acceleration, here is the default Danish SAR Merlin aboard the German frigate in HelgolandX. One of the big advantages of FSX Acceleration is that the ships now move smoothly and don't "shunt" (suddenly slow down, speed up and change heading). This makes them much easier to formate with and land aboard. Life is good again!
