  1. I can now confirm that simmarket has the updated 1.05a installer and that it has worked for me, right out of the box, as it was meant to. Thank you! Madeira looks great. I keep my suggestion of adding the version to the zip file.
  2. Unfortunately the zip file has no version info on it's name. Perhaps that would be a good thing to add as a rule? I don't know if simmarket has updated already or its still the same. It's a 1.25 gig download
  3. Same here I am relieved I am not the only one having this issue, I thought I was going crazy, or my FSX install was somehow corrupted.
  4. Yes, I too have bought madeira only after 1.05 was released so I don't have access to the previous version. But it's good to know someone is on this :). Thank you Oliver. Rui
  5. I've installed in FSX in order to fly it with PMDG's MD11 and it looks like in post 176. I've followed post 2 to the letter. I am not letting UTlive client start, to my best knowledge I have Ultimate Traffic 2 disabled, I have searched for any rogue BGL with LPMA in FSX folder, I've disabled all my FSGLOBAL2005 folders in my scenery cfg, I have FTX vector and follwed all the steps and inactivated the 3 bgls for each airport. I don't know what else to try.
  6. Thank you for sharing the WIP screenies! I think for most of us it is obvious that renders will look odd and different from what we see in FS (like lack of shadows). I don't care. The fact that those that are waiting for the release can see progress happening is always nice (even though I also think we're not automatically entitled to it).
  7. Impressive! Will the walkers be animated? One day, in a near future, we might be able to simulate actually going through ops before boarding the plane.
  8. I'm up to date now, many thanks. This is one of the best addons I've seen for FS. Going to get my first credit pack so I can start using it in lisboa.
  9. Thank you for the prompt answer! I've seen AES NG referenced elsewhere here, it looks like a large improvement. Is it related to the new 2.20 version?
  10. Hello everyone, I'm new to AES, I've been flying mainly GA aircraft so I hadn't used it yet but I want to go back to airline flying and so AES is now installed. I've tested it with default 737 and... boy was it beautiful . I'm presently trying to configure PMDG's B1900D but I am unable to tell AES that the cargo door is on the left side. Can it be done? Warm regards, Alex
  11. I made some sceneries about 6 years ago, McGrath and a few other iditarod checkpoints in alaska, and with all the research about those places that it involved, looking at pictures, trying to get a feel for the places to somehow recreate that feeling in the sceneries... I got a little depressed about not being able to visit them! .
  12. Well Thorsten I've been an admirer of Sim-wings' quality sceneries since I think FS2000. The fact that even though FS9 has been obsolete for so long but you, with Aerosoft, still support it is fantastic, as I too am still stuck with it. And as a TCA Alaska pilot flying from Anchorage for more than 10 years now this scenery is a real treat. You mentioned Fairbanks and other US airports might be coming next. I want to mention another alaska airport that has been forgotten by the payware industry: Ketchikan. We've had gorgeous scenery for the area since 2004, with Misty and Tongass Fjords and now the new Orbx sceneries in FSX. Most if not all of the other airports in the area are already beautifuly rendered. Still, oddly, Ketchikan Intl has remained untouched, except for one or two good freeware approaches. And it looks like an interesting airport to develop, even if a little small. Thank you, looking forward for PANC's release.
  13. Thanks, I did install the low poly. That shows how outdated my system must be. But it was a risk I new I was taking. And the aircraft's a beauty, specially with all that aged and stained effects, by the way. African Airstrips Adventures, on the other hand, has been working great for me and what a fantastic piece of software it is, very immersive (after only a few free flights and the introduction flight with former charlie 1). Let me congratulate Aerosoft and the software designers for this. I'd like to add something about why I'm enjoying African Airstrips Adventures so much: around 1986 or 87, I was about 14 years old, I discovered the ZX Spectrum 48K and when by chance a pirate tape of a Psion Flight Simulator came into my possession I was hooked (and permanently, as I'm still here). There was no guns to shoot in this sim, no other aircraft to see. Ground scenery was dark blue, sky was cyan (but only when I was allowed to use the color TV to play), there were 2 or 3 runways, and I think two lakes - round lake and triangular lake. And of course, there was no side views, no external view, no ATC, no AI traffic, no clouds. Almost everything had to be imagined. And in my imagination I was flying in Africa making deliveries from one runway to the other. Where there was blue I saw the savanah and african forests, wildlife near the lakes, etc. Ever since that first flight simulator experience I think I've been wishing for an addon like AAA. Now the savanna's presence is seen and almost felt, I've flown over the flamingo colonies by the nakuru lake shore (and I think I even heard them!), spotted buffalo herds on simba taru plains, saw traditional villages and almost felt the taste of the red dusty earth in my mouth (some things still have to be imagined). So thank you, this is really a very special addon for me. Warm regards,
  14. Boy those ships would justify a scenery package by itself, they're so detailed. BUT I hope the human models in the chinese and japanese stations do have the expected asian features or else realism will suffer badly.
  15. I loved these screenshots, it's a place I've known well in FS flying for TCA Alaska VA since 2000. I'm still sticking with FS9 mostly and using Richard Goldstein's Alaska Cinematic in summer, which covers anchorage area with beautiful photo scenery. I'm wishing that chance will make the eventual FS9 version of this scenery and AK Cinematic fit together perfectly. If they do, flying into and out of Anchorage will look simply too gorgeous.
