Vector 1.20 Full Installer (Fixed)

Yesterday, 09:26 PM

Posted by Ed Correia in Release Announcements

Hi all,

 

This is to advise you that the full installer available from FlightSim Store has now been updated to resolve reported issues.

 

Please note that there is no new content, merely a change to installer behaviour.

 

The main reported issue that has now been fixed is the issue of runtime errors that the Vector Config tool was producing after install. This was only effecting new users (i.e. no presence of a prior Vector install). The installer will now ignore calling the Vector Config tool if it does not detect Vector already being installed. 

 

Secondly, there was default inactive files that were not being installed, that has been rectified.

 

Thirdly, the installer will now detect free space on the target drive. This is now a feature being put in all new installers as previously no indications were given previously if there was insufficient space.

 

Important!

The above issues only effect customers who never had Vector installed. So if you went through the Vector 1.00 through to 1.20 via the update process, you are OK. Even if you had a previous version of Vector installed and went with the full 1.20 installer from FSS you are OK. I repeat, only new customers were affected.

Orbxlibs 150215 Released - features new ObjectFlow DLL...

18 Feb 2015

Posted by Ed Correia in Release Announcements

Hi all,

 

The latest Orbxlibs is now ready. On top of new library objects, this release features two important updates that address the issues that have impacted ObjectFlow and FTX Central.

 

Please read the following information carefully.

 

FSX: Both Original & Steam Edition (FSX:SE)

Firstly, ObjectFlow has been updated for FSX. The Orbxlibs installer will update the unified DLL that resides in the ORBX\FTX_AU\FTXAA_ORBXLIBS\Scenery folder.

 

This unified DLL has been a feature in the triple installers and newly released airports. There are still a number of airports that still use their own DLL which reside in the individual aiport scenery folders. To update these, go to the ORBX\Scripts folder and run the ObjectFlowUpdate.exe program. This will update all installed ObjectFlow DLLs for you.

 

The ObjectFlow DLL is the same for the original FSX, so you will see warning messages pop up when starting FSX for the first time. Please allow these DLLs to be trusted by clicking Yes to run the software.

 

Prepar3D v2.5

As above, the ObjectFlow has been updated for P3Dv2.5. Again, there are a few airports that still use their own ObjectFlow DLL, so running the ObjectFlowUpdate program will update them for you.

 

Also included is a patched FTX Central that allows it to append the terrain.cfg file which changed location in the P3Dv2.5 update. We had hoped that FTX Central v2 would have been ready, but we're are 90% of the way there and decided to patch the current FTX Central to address this now.

 

This is the recommended method for getting FTX Central to work with P3Dv2.5 (assuming a clean install of P3Dv2.5)

 

  • Install Global (or one Region if you do not have Global), ignore the FTX Central error at the end of installation and then install this Orbxlibs followed by applying a Region/Global in FTX Central.

 

Note that with the unpatched FTX Central failing to locate the terrain.cfg initially has no effect on your Orbx install. The files are all in place, it just needs the patched FTX Central to do its final thing and append entries to the terrain.cfg file.

If you do receive errors while installing more regions as you progressively go along, simply run the Orbxlibs installer again.

FTX: NA CNK4 Parry Sound Area Muni Airport Released

14 Feb 2015

Posted by Adrian Lehmann (FSS) in Release Announcements

Relax in heart of the Toronto cottage country!

Parry Sound lies on beautiful Georgian Bay, formed when glaciers receded over the mighty Canadian Shield. With a moderate climate, thanks to a relatively sheltered sound, the Big Bay can be easily reached and is, daily, by unobtrusive tour boats. A quick exploration of the town reveals full medical facilities and distinguished schools among other necessary business services, making this town an attractive place to live and work. Parry Sound, the largest natural harbour on Georgian Bay, was named by "Captain Henry Bayfield" after Sir William Edward Parry, the Arctic explorer. Bayfield surveyed the 30,000 islands in the early 19th Century. This is a staging point for trips not only to your cottage near by, but also for countless exploration possibilities of the beautiful French River and Muskoka areas. The Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport (PSAMA) is located in Seguin Township in the District of Parry Sound. The PSAMA's runway is 4,000' with a 290' by 320' apron and medium-intensity airfield lighting. The airport has a float plane base located on the 4,000' long Robert's Lake connected to the airport via a private access road. The PSAMA is a popular re-fuelling destination for Air Ambulance, Hydro One Helicopters, Ontario Provincial Police, and Search & Rescue. So get there by plane or by car, set sail and go!

  • Photo real imagery of the airport area
  • Fully custom modeled airport and objects
  • FSX GMAX poly runway and aprons
  • Custom modeled static aircraft
  • Includes most ORBX "Flow" technologies
  • Bonus - CRL8 Roberts Lake Water Aerodrome  (Requires FTX Vector for lake features)
  • Located 3 hours drive from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
