  1. Was doing some scenery maintenance, and noticed that there is a dupe library object in Antarctica X. I'm not sure if duplicate objects cause problems or not, but it seems like a good idea not to have them. At any rate the duplicate object is Casey_Sled01 in both sanae_library.bgl and casey_library.bgl. scott s. .
  2. For a scenery as large as Antarctica X, it would be nice to be able to specify the install directory for the main scenery area, rather than forcing it under the main FSX folder. I tried to change the install location when running the installer, but that just resulted in a "Flight Simulator X not found" error until I replaced the install path. So I let it install and then moved the folders afterward. scott s. .
  3. Thanks. Got it. Took a spin from Long Seridan in the highlands to Mulu: scott s. .
  4. Looking fowrard to this paint. scott s. .
  5. I also would greatly appreciate a MASWings paint. I've gone so far as download the paint kit for it although I'm not a painter. scott s. .
  6. Thanks, my wife was complaining it was too loud (doesn't see m to bother me, though! scott s. .
  7. I have the Discus 1.6 installed with CumulusX! 1.8 licensed. On the C4, I put the cursor on the volume and adjust it up/down, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. Is this supposed to work? I've been using the Discus B WL though I don't see that would make a difference. scott s. .
  8. Thanks. I will play with it and see how things go. scott s. .
  9. I looked at the old thread on Active Sky and CumulusX! but I think maybe it needs updating for 1.8? When using Active Sky (enhanced), I have options in that program set to not generate thermals or ridge lift. But in reading CumulusX! document, it seems like sometimes station weather is used and sometimes global weather, and I wonder how that is impacted by programs like like Active Sky. Also, Active Sky has an option called "direct wind control" which seems to set global weather and disables station weather. Is there some way to determine the weather that cumulusX! is responding to (maybe in the debug log?) that can be compared to what Active Sky "thinks" the weather should be? Also to avoid starting new thread, I have 1.8 installed and also a license but I don't understand how the dll works with the exe? They both are needed but the dll takes priority with a license? I have both installed in the xml files, but I have the exe on a "manual" start so I don't start it when not soaring. Any problem with that? scott s. .
  10. thanks I will check it out. scott s. .
  11. I looked through the airport list, and can't find any way to demo AES for FSX. I'm interested in seeing how it compares to FS9. It appears that there is an airport for LOWK that is supported, but I can't find any such file for FSX, only LOWK2007 for FS9. scott s. .
  12. Interesting. The other day some one was asking about WMBU and doing a little searching found a pix which IIRC had a MAS Wings twin otter in it. Would also like a paint for this. scott s. .
  13. Thanks I am not sure how I missed that. I take it whatever winds are injected into FSX by the external weather program will determine the ridge lift (aside from topography of course)? scott s. .
  14. Thanks for 1.5!! I have been away from CumulusX! since I've been on sp1 only, but with the new Discus I broke down and installed sp2 so now can get back to it. One thing I haven't seen is how does CumulusX! work with external weather programs like Active Sky? I think Active Sky advertises thermals, though I don't think it was ever explained just how it generates them. scott s. .
  15. Some authorities provide VFR approach or area charts as part of the "charts related to an aerodrome" section of their AIS. Quality varies. scott s. .
