What, the administrator, for the day, at the ORG, has decided that me downloading 3 relatively small files is an abuse of their fabled servers?
Or is it a blanket standard rule for everyone, every day? There I go again, being a smarty pants.
Sheesh, 3 Welsh scenery files, totalling 34mb all up. I’VE MISPLACED/NERFED ALL MY OLD XPLANE 9 SCENERY IN MY HARD DRIVE MIGRATION, THIS COULD TAKE ME YEARS TO REPLACE MY FAVE FILES!
Typical terse Orgspeak. Grrr, they annoy me sometimes! Come on chaps, get with the times, update your rules and allow, maybe 4 files a day? I’m sure you have some spare usb drives around for extra storage and bandwidth.
As we speak, I’m installing the RCSimulations VFR Scenery Pack volume 3, covering North Wales etc. Will report back how it looks in XP10, especially with some of the great welsh sceneries by RCMARPLE and others. If it’s good, the 50% off prices for their other scenery volumes are looking good! Let us know which packs you recommend, other than the obvious London bit (whichever pack that is!).
At least I have a nice empty hard drive in any case. The best way to clean it out I suppose – just back it all up on another hard disk, then trash it in a negligent stupor. Voila, plenty of room.
All Xplane vendors, get ready for my dozens of emails requesting re-download assistance! Nah, should be ok, thank God for Gmail archiving.
This should be an interesting exercise. Think about it, just how many addons do you fly or fly over, regularly. I might keep a list of the ones I rapidly reinstall. Already I’m thinking…..The CRJ, the Javelin (by Javier too!), the CF104 by Greg Hofer and Tom Kyler’s Falco, they’re the ones that come immediately to mind. Then the Zero. And the x737.
Hehe, at least I must subconsciously love the Realscenery Oahu Enhanced scenery from X-Aviation. I managed to keep that very safe
Speaking of cool scenery, have a look at this. I was quite unwell today, so slowly fiddled with it, just the builder alone is very relaxing and capable, it comes for free with the game, a whole 99 cents on the ipad!
This is what I built for my son today, working turntable and all!
Start with a totally blank, flat canvas, then build the base mesh, then texture with their variable pre-loaded textures (yes, I have suggested importing your own, but theirs is pretty extensive).
Then let your imagination run wild!
Surprisingly, you are able to join multiple scenes to make huge areas – this is just one scene.
Toot, toot for now.
