  1. Thank you, Ray. Is there a place we can download your panel mod?
  2. I keep a log of everything I install, so if something goes wrong I have a better chance of fixing it. This morning I installed this marvelous scenery. Since then, whenever I reload FSX, it rebuilds the scenery database. I was puzzled by this, but looking at my log I said, "Can't be anything else." So, I deselected the two new folders in the FSX scenery library, it rebuilt the scenery database (which it should do whenever you make changes like this), and I exited the sim. I restarted FSX: would it rebuild the scenery database again? Moment of truth... No, it didn't! Coincidence? I exit FSX and restart it. No, it doesn't rebuild the scenery database. Ergo, it is something in the two folders I just disabled. What is it in the two scenery folders that Wasserkuppe installs that is triggering FSX to rebuild the scenery database every time the program loads? I don't see any files in those folders changing since they were installed, so I'm puzzled.
  3. I had this for FS9, and missed it in FSX. Thank you! Is there a way to set the "VFR Germany 1 modulation" manually? I have that product installed, but I've moved it to a different hard disk. UPDATE: Two things I notice right away: (1) the new photos are much greener than the old VFR 1 colors (nice) (2) Gliders circling in the air! I don't know if that's a first, but it's the first time I've seen it in the sim. As the 5-6-7-8s say in Kill Bill, Vol. 1: "Woo hoo, woo hoo hoo!" See http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?t=39735&p=447377#post447377 for a couple screenshots.
  4. Thank you, Thomas. There was one more hurdle, which I'll describe here in case someone else had the same problem. I put my exported .fsm file in the same folder with the image files, but I still got two sets of error messages. One was looking for the various .tif files that ship with FSMap. Since they were already installed, I just ignored those errors and kept going. The second error, when I got to my new files, was "permission denied." I tried fixing the permissions directly, but that didn't work. What did work: I copied the folder with my image files -- the ones to be imported -- and the .fsm file that I generated earlier to a FAT32-formatted USB drive. I don't know if the FAT32 formatting was important -- it's dumber about permissions than NTFS -- but it worked. I loaded FSMap, clicked on Manage Maps and then Import Maps, then selected the folder on my USB drive. I still got the first error (looking for the Europe .tifs that come with FSMap) but the rest went fine. I can now use my old collection of calibrated maps. Thank you.
  5. Thank you, Thomas. I opened up MyMaps.fsm in Notepad and there is no path. For example: [MAP.409] Name=Airport - NZAA Filename=NZAA.gif Region=Asia MapType=0 ... Which folder does FSMap expect the image files to be in, relative to *.fsm?
  6. Thank you, Thomas. Now, how do I get all of my added maps back? I tried exporting them from the old install, but when I import the resulting file, it generates "file not found" errors for all of the map image files.
  7. I recently moved from Windows XP to Windows 7. I have reinstalled FSMap, and I have a lot of maps installed. Problem: FSMap is looking for my maps in the old documents folder: "C:\Documents and Settings\User_Name\My Documents\FSMap\1.0\Maps". Is there an .ini file or registry key that I can edit to make FSMap look in a different location?

    Columbus Day

    From the front page: " 25% Discount: Happy Columbus Day 2009! Monday, 12.10.2009 In the US they call it Columbus day (in other parts of the America's it has different names) and we like to celebrate that festive day with a serious discount of some of our products for 24 hours. We picked the products with most links to the US. So from this moment and for the next 24 hours the F-16 X, Manhattan X, PBY Catalina X, Seahawk X and the three US Cities X sceneries are all discounted by 25% (download products only). Happy Columbus day if you celebrate that, Happy Monday if you don't!" http://www.aerosoft.com/cgi-local/us/iboshop.cgi?show160

    Columbus Day

    The Oracle (a.k.a. Wikipedia) explains, "Many countries in the New World and elsewhere celebrate the anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the Americas, which occurred on October 12, 1492 in the Julian calendar and October 21, 1492 in the modern Gregorian calendar, as an official holiday. The day is celebrated as Columbus Day in the United States, as Día de la Raza (Day of the (Hispanic) race) in many countries in America, as Día de las Culturas (Day of the Cultures) in Costa Rica, as Discovery Day in The Bahamas, as Día de la Hispanidad and Fiesta Nacional in Spain, as Día de las Américas (Day of the Americas) in Uruguay and as Día de la Resistencia Indígena (Day of Indigenous Resistance) in Venezuela. These holidays have been celebrated unofficially since the late 18th century, and officially in various countries since the early 20th century."
  10. I was leafing through the latest Computer Pilot magazine and, as usual, Aerosoft has an ad. In the corner it says, "Watch out for special offers on Columbus Day!!!" Did anything come of this?
  11. I ask, Shaun, because when VFR Germany 1 came out, it was missing the effects files, which were delivered as a hotfix. I'm wondering if the same thing has happened with 4.
  12. I see a number of nuclear reactors. Is there an effect to make them steam?
  13. If you have a light floating under the fuselage, try this for a fix: http://forums1.avsim.net/index.php?showtopic=258514.

    Carrier ops?

    Thank you, James. Javier's Nimitz makes carrier ops a lot more compelling.
