The reason I said a while back that the last library update I did was “intermediate” was that I was still working really quite hard on a number of projects – some of which have advanced faster than others. With the first of these now complete and uploaded for release, I’ve also uploaded two different archives to hammer the internet connections of users of my scenery – I’m both sorry and not for that!
The files can be downloaded via Flight Simulator, Scenery Object Libraries, IJP FSX Object Libraries, on the top menu bar.
OK. So. I fixed FSX, by reinstalling a keyboard driver.
This isn’t quite as odd as it sounds, when you consider that the problem turned out to be in part of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable files, which any C++ application needs installed to run. The problem is that there are umpteen of these things installed, so which one is broken? Apparently, whichever one is installed by the Logitech keyboard and mouse software. So that’s fixed. Excellent. Now I can release Raydon and Banff… Except that I can’t. This time, the problem is Drawcall Batching.
Not one of mine, this time, but there’s a new scenery now available to download for the WW2 collection: RAF
Home to the 391st Bombardment Group’s B-26 Marauders, a model for which is coming along nicely by Milton Shupe and associates, Ian’s scenery for Matching uses all the libraries available here and can be downloaded from the file library at Sim-Outhouse (free login required).
I’ve finally got around to creating new pages for two existing airfields – one of which had a page on the old site, the other one didn’t and has just been packaged up for the first time on its own. The two pages are RAF
They can be found via the menu at the top of the website.
Here’s something I haven’t done for a while… It’s a whole new scenery at version 1.0!
To go with the release of the new Aeroplane
I’ve added a page for my scenery library objects and uploaded them at last, as I’ve finally got around to checking that there’s nothing in there that shouldn’t be.
They can be found under the top menu, “Flight Simulator”, “Scenery Object Libraries”, “IJP FSX Object Libraries”. Or just by clicking here, because it’s easier.
It’s been very quiet from me the last few months. I know. Sorry. As per the previous post, winter is not kind to my anatomy. However, I haven’t been entirely idle.
I’ve just uploaded a beta version of RAF Ballykelly (hybrid modern layout) in case anyone wants to take a look at it. The current download is quite large, but that’s because it’s got my latest scenery libraries in it too, for no better reason than I couldn’t be bothered to separate out the ones used by Ballykelly so far.
One of the significant downsides of the back muscle spasms that I suffer from is that cold and wet weather makes them significantly worse. Hello Autumn in Britain, you’re cold, damp and miserable. Actually it hasn’t been that damp and miserable so far, but the cooler temperatures are very literally a pain in the back and side. So things have slowed down. Sorry. They haven’t stopped, though.
The WiP versions of Banff, Peterhead and Drem are still ‘works in progress’ but have stopped for various reasons. I may release Peterhead as it is, flagged as version 0.1, if people want it. Those three now been joined by two more: Northern Ireland’s Coastal Command Ballykelly and the famous fighter field at Tangmere, near the English South Coast. Tangmere is… complicated. It’s had a lot of incarnations. So has Ballykelly, so there are a lot of options and possibilities to work through, here. If they’re usable, I may well post 0.1 versions of all of them, just to give people more runways to fly off, even if they don’t have all the technical area buildings, clutter or vehicles. What do people think?
