    When you set up your flight plan, make sure that the flight altitude is set to what you want there.

    Willy, I get the same thing adding scenery in W7. When you hit the OK button and it just opens the folder, hit the Back arrow and the dialog will close and your new layer will be in the Scenery Library list.

    Nice find! Great work on this one by ORBX and Frank Dainese - worth the large download size IMHO! And the price is right too! :applause: Downloaded it via Google Drive and it didn't take long at all despite the 1.2GB size. LOL at the Close Encounters references here! :biggrin-new:

    I thought about the game pad, but if I'm going to spend that kind of money, I'll spend a little more and get myself a G510 keyboard with 18 programmable "G Keys." It looks to me like a reboot of the original G15, which I had for several years.

    I've used one of those for quite a while, but I don't like the latest L'tech configuration software for it - they took away too much of what I used just about every time I put my hand on it. I'm thinking about this one: http://www.logitech.com/en-gb/product/performance-mouse-mx?crid=7

    The bottom monitor is my laptop, with a full keyboard, but I also have a wireless keyboard that I didn't yet have on the pullout when I snapped the pic. I probably won't use that during flights though. I'm still tweaking the setup, so layout will probably change. I also need to get a better mouse, but the ones that say they work on glass are pricey.

    I've had a 39" TV on the wall in my bedroom that I never watch. Today, I picked up a new desk and moved the TV to the wall over that. With the TV in use as an extended desktop monitor, I'm looking forward to flying with a nice wide view! Notice the GPS and radio popups undocked and moved down in this quick demo pic...

    New parts to build five, 12 engines, and full blueprints - I'd say if you have the money, time, staff, and room, you could start your own display team. And I bet they'd take an even half-million if you walked in with cash!

    Try loading up the default 737 and see if the same control inputs give you normal results. At least that way, you can eliminate controller issues.

    My mesh for the Philippines by itself is 78.7 MB. You're right, mesh files can be huge. I hope you have a massive hard drive - you've bought 25 GB of data.

    Two names to look for: Raimondo Taburet, and Justin Tyme. Plus, anything that has FSGenesis and freeware in the same sentence. There's quite a bit to choose from out there, and nearly all of it excellent. There's also a set from SOH user "rhumbaflappy" that was "marketed" for the CFS2 crowd, but that Sim uses the same scenery engine as FS9. Also, to make the most of any mesh, open your fs9.cfg and go to the section. Edit the TERRAIN_MAX_VERTEX_LEVEL line and raise it to 21.
