    Thanks for the suggestion brother, but it was suggested and tried.....it only brought the entire airfield on a plateau rather than just the runways and taxi ways. I think the best course is just to remove the Orbx installs, do a stock FSX repair and try it again. I believe the problem arose when I may have misread in the Orbx forums that you can install all the regions together and then start FSX and allow it to rebuild it's database. Lesson learned is next time I will start FSX each time to allow a slower build of the database, in hopes of avoiding the plateaus. I just wish their products would show up in the Control Panel, make it a bit easier to select and clear. Since I will be re-installing, I'm not concerned about the registry being clear of the products, in hopes of avoiding...

    Thanks Craig. I'll play some more tonight with it. I know it has potential to look fantastic and that's absolutely my desired end state. As for deleting any Orbx stuff, suggestions?

    Gents, A bit frustrated. Got most of the add ons installed but cannot get rid of the elusive plateau at Friday's Harbor field (default FSX flyover point) or the one generated at McChord field (KTCM). It was never there when I originally installed all before and now shows up. Anyway, I would like to just remove Orbx regions, Orbx Global base and FS Global 2010 FTX in hopes of removing the plateaus and reinstall them one by one to avoid the plateaus again. However, I see neither a Uninstall option in their menu or in Control Panel. I plan to do a repair option from the FSX files and leave the REX and additional after market planes installed. Do you think I am going about this the right way or have I overlooked something? Also, if I must delete all and start over again, I will at...

    Great tips Roger. I think when I've re-installed in the past, my impatience got in the way of what would be the right way, and admittedly, Orbx has a huge amount of space on my drive. I am really interested to see how the 4k resolution turns out with all of the aircraft, weather and scenery. Thanks for helping a seasoned guy fumble through his install.

    Roger, Thanks for that piece too. Luckily since this is a new HDD and install, I absolutely did not have to tweak with my registry or delete existing folders. Do you have any advice on the order of add on installs, in other words scenery and mesh add one? Do I physically need to start FSX each time after each add on(Orbx, UTX, etc.) to check integrity of the install and whether or not traffic has been deleted or modified? Also, I will do all physical aircraft add one in the end, as they do not necessarily impact traffic files, unless that's an incorrect assumption too. Thoughts? Matt

    I did some various searches but found nothing. I thought there was a guide that explained the install sequence of FSX and add ons. I have installed FSX-SE and am hoping to avoid the traffic debacle that plagued my last install a few months back. I had spent the better part of a weekend installing aircraft, scenery and utilities. It all looked great but then I noticed there was NO traffic and it was discussed as being a possible FS9 traffic file conflict. I never was able to resolve it, but ended up buying another computer. This was my opportunity to install the Steam version and give it one more hurrah before possibly switching to P3Dv2... Anyway, I thought Harleyman or TXNetCop had put a guide out. Any help appreciated. Thanks

    Emmanuele, I fully agree with what you stated as I too referenced the Dash One for the F-104S and it stated exactly what you said. The problem was this dynamic duo was trying to beat up the developers of a naval strategy sim called Command Modern Naval Operations or CMANO, by Slitherine/Matrix. The development team made a choice to limit the maximum speeds of a majority of their Mach 2 capable aircraft to 950 knots, it's not the maximum for many of the aircraft in real life, but a very close approximation to what one would see if the same aircraft were equipped with combat external stores, or even fuel tanks, versus a fully stripped aircraft that's achieving it's maximum speeds and height to climb data. Anyway, the dynamic duo insists that because the developer made this decision, the...
