    Well I use Opera and as far as I can see I must cut and paste any foreign language into a translation program on a separate tab to the one the forum thread is on. That is because there is no add on in Opera that automatically translates anything and the CTRL ALT P solution someone posted does not work. Now, I am thinking that we either have to put up with this awkward situation or shift over (or return to) to Chrome whether we like it or not.

    Thank you for your detailed answer to my uneducated statement about Megascenery Ken. much appreciated. I was thinking that as their scenery was so close to Ortho it would have been easy to port over but I am not technically minded so probably I am wrong on that point as well. I got frustrated with Orbx and the now defunct Flight Sim World as well. Orbx products were soooo close to working in FSW, the walls of buildings did not show up and couple of other minor glitches but the scenery loaded okay. It always seemed to me that just a little bit of effort and the whole Orbx world might have been available to that sim.

    Hmmm ...... Having bought Orbx Australia Red, Green, Blue and Gold and the update to Australia V1.0 and lately the updated Australia V2.0 for FSX I can tell you that a "professional" product is not always worth the money either! The latest offering seems to focus on mining operations in the more inaccessible areas of the continent and has one yes that is one decently modeled city. That is Melbourne and undoubtedly the home town of the author. When I queried where is Adelaide Oval (almost a religious shrine for cricket fans) and my city, I got told "what do you expect for the price!". After having bought that and all the aforementioned earlier versions I was not real pleased with him or Orbx.


    The company that should have come on board our sim is Megascenery Earth not Orbx in my opinion.

    I read in another forum where someone was using Megascenery in FSX/P3D that the exact placement of airports within those sims was incorrect in some cases. That led to visible errors where the photo scenery did not match the locations within the sim. I was wondering if our AFS2 was more accurate in this respect?

    Great scenery thank you. Around the area of Neon Karlovasion though I can see a number of buildings in the sea. Is that my unique problem or is the scenery unfinished there?


    Definitively itching for some new payware quality scenery myself.

    Well I do not know about new but there is some scenery for sale over at simmarket.com that you might not have seen. I am downloading lubbock texas from there as I type this.

    I was wondering after yesterdays announcement that ORBX have put our Sim on hold for further scenery releases ;( whether IPACs have anything in the pipeline for us? Be nice to get another state such as Texas in our world. 8o

    This has probably been asked before but I was wondering if the Megascenery Earth folk were ever approached about supporting AFS2?

    I think that a more powerful helicopter that can handle Lukla would be the best thing.


    I have bought two of the three from Justflight but will not buy the C152 as I am happy with the freeware one from Krzysztof that preceeded Justflight's.


    His planes are worth a look. I find the YAK18T awesome.


    I know this is a day late and a dollar short as one of our expressions goes but I have just had my first play in this magnificent scenery package. Huge thank you from me to all who put so much work in to make it so enjoyable. :love:

    How does it compare to the free C152 that was released recently? $40 is a bit hard to swallow for such a simple airplane

    My opinion is that I am with you from the point of view of comparing it with the freeware C152 to decide whether or not to buy it, but less so on the cost aspect. I think the developer put a lot of hours into this creation so deserves $40 if you decide to buy the plane. :)

    Not advantageous perhaps but the user interface is so much easier I think. On that website all sceneries can be displayed in grid format on the screen and the user just clicks on the part he wants to download. You can always see what part of the map you are downloading . They must have hundreds of scenery files on there.

    Forgive me for using this forum as I am a non-developer, but I have often read how the files users are creating are too large to be uploaded or downloaded. That reminded me of this site for P3D or FSX that I used in the past.

    Would it be possible to have a site like this for AFS2 simmers?
