Nothing else This is the file I want to install AFCAD FILE FOR EGCC UPDATED Jump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details DOWNLOAD446.09 KB Manchester Airport, UK, for the default scenery. By Matthew Brooks / Alpha-India Group. Aerial view of Manchester Airport, UK. Manchester is a major airport hub in the U.K. for the north of the country and sees a wide range of passenger traffic from transatlantic flights with major U.K. and U.S. airlines to a significant volume of scheduled and charter traffic within Europe. Most major European airlines call here and Manchester also gets a number of the smaller U.K. domestic airlines. When the second runway (5R/23L) was constructed here, Manchester became only the second commercial airport after London Heathrow to have a second runway. Manchester has also developed quite recently as a cargo hub and sees regular cargo flights by Cathay Pacifc/Dragonair and China Airlines, amongst others. Manchester has seen the An-225 as well as, more often, An-124's and An-12's. GA is also quite important here - although more in the executive aviation area than small single props. Main Changes: Re-aligned the entire taxi network by Jeppesen charts - moving many by as much as 155 meters - and changed taxiway textures consistent with the Google Earth images. Re-drew the entire apron areas according to Jeppesen charts and including recently added areas. Re-numbered both runways to their changed real world numbering and changed all approach code for this. Changed all apron parking in line with Jeppsen charts and coded as necessary for airlines and cargo aircraft. This included adding several more gate parking spots, overflow airline parking and cargo spots than existed in the default airport. Added a significant amount of GA parking of various sizes to cover the different aircraft visiting the airport. Significantly increased the size of the tower building to better represent the real thing and placed the Tower viewpoint above the tower roof. Created an extensive vehicle network to avoid delays to departing aircraft and to keep service vehicles off taxiways. Added overlay and diamond crossing arrangements to appropriate taxiways over R05L/23R, to maintain a smooth flow of traffic. Added a large area of landclass in different textures to better represent the area around the airport. Added the missing Ringway Road dual carriageway connecting the airport to the M56 motorway as well as the extensive road network between the dual carriage way and the airport terminals. Also redirected the rail line to the station connected to terminal 1. Added large areas of car parking, parked cars, cargo vehicles and various other elements to add realism to the airport. Credits: ADE (Airport Design Editor) by Jon Masterson is an invaluable freeware utility for developing Afcads and the latest beta version - 1.40 - is significantly advanced with the addition of the graphical Approach code editor, written by Jim Vile. My thanks to both Jim and Jon for all their help and support on this and all AIG projects. Installation: Remove any existing EGCC AFD/Afcad file in your FSX installation. Place the two files AIG_EGCC_ADE_MB_Default.BGL and AIG_EGCC_ADE_MB_Default_CVX.BGL in your Addon Scenery/scenery folder and re-start FSX. AIG_EGCC_ADE_MB_Default_CVX.BGL includes the landclass.

  4. Hi all Can anyone help me with this problem I have downloaded freeware Manchester Airport, but I don't understand the following instructions fully? Remove any existing EGCC AFD/Afcad file in your FSX installation. Place the two files AIG_EGCC_ADE_MB_Default.BGL and AIG_EGCC_ADE_MB_Default_CVX.BGL in your Addon Scenery/scenery folder and re-start FSX. AIG_EGCC_ADE_MB_Default_CVX.BGL includes the landclass. 1 I can not find the existing EGCC AFD file in any of the scenery folders in FSX, Where is it? 2 I have placed the 2 files both in the addon scenery folder, but I don't know how to "restart FSX AIG_EGCC_ADE_MB_Default_CVX.BGL includes the landclass." What the hell does that mean
  5. Bit of an update Set the system up and now have Proflight Yoke (£99.99 pc world online), Proflight pedals. The game runs with everything set to max and seems fine, very happy and so far haven't had an crashes. Now all I have to do is learn to use the FSX properly
  6. Thanks for the comments Don't know what overclocking is, giving that a miss Microsoft have said they intend to stop offering updates for windows 7 soon, so hence windows 8 I'll get another 4Gb of ram I have a 500GB external HD for extra storage, I'm sure I could spend more and it's at the bottom end of the scale compared to some of high end systems on here, but it should be adequate ?
  7. I will have this if you still have it. PayPal gift for the postage Regards Adam Raynor
  8. Further news..... I've gone to PC specialist, seem to be the cheapest and ordered the following, I have built a few systems, but to be honest I can't be bothered and decided to let somebody else do the work and its cost £678 which seems reasonable Case STYLISH PIANO BLACK ENIGMA MICRO-ATX CASE + 2 FRONT USB Processor (CPU) Intel® Core™i7 Quad Core Processor i7-4790 (3.6GHz) 8MB Cache Motherboard Gigabyte H81M-D2V: Micro-ATX, LG1150, USB 3.0, SATA 6GBs Memory (RAM) 4GB KINGSTON DUAL-DDR3 1600MHz (1 x 4GB) Graphics Card 2GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 760 - 2 DVI, HDMI, DP - 3D Vision Ready 2nd Graphics Card NONE 1st Hard Disk 500GB 3.5" SATA-III 6GB/s HDD 7200RPM 16MB CACHE 1st Hard Disk Partitions 300GB, 200GB 2nd Hard Disk NONE RAID NONE 1st DVD/BLU-RAY Drive 24x DUAL LAYER DVD WRITER ±R/±RW/RAM 2nd DVD/BLU-RAY Drive NONE Memory Card Reader INTERNAL 52 IN 1 CARD READER (XD, MS, CF, SD, etc) + 1 x USB 2.0 PORT Power Supply CORSAIR 450W VS SERIES™ VS-450 POWER SUPPLY Processor Cooling INTEL STANDARD CPU COOLER Sound Card ONBOARD 6 CHANNEL (5.1) HIGH DEF AUDIO (AS STANDARD) Wireless/Wired Networking 10/100/1000 GIGABIT LAN PORT - AS STANDARD ON ALL PCs Wireless Router/HomePlugs NONE USB Options MIN. 2 x USB 3.0 & 4 x USB 2.0 PORTS @ BACK PANEL + MIN. 2 FRONT PORTS Firewire NONE TV Card NONE Power Cable 1 x 1 Metre UK Power Cable (Kettle Lead) Operating System Genuine Windows 8.1 64 Bit - inc DVD & Licence DVD Recovery Media Windows 8.1 (64-bit) DVD with paper sleeve Office Software FREE 30 Day Trial of Microsoft® Office® 365 Anti-Virus BULLGUARD INTERNET SECURITY - FREE 90 DAY TRIAL Browser Microsoft® Internet Explorer Thoughts?

  9. Hi guys and girls I'm building a system to help me practice for the real world and Im not sure what to buy. I want to send the least amount, but still run the game which will enable me to practice IFR and commercial operations. I am current studying for my CPL and have a cessna 150 and my PPL, but anything to improve my procedures and ATC is a bonus and much cheaper of course. Doing a quick scan I have picked out the following and am not quite sure if this is suitable or the best out of the bunch. Im thinking minimum i5 processor, should I stick with Intel over AMD?, Which version of windows should I use? http://www.cclonline.com/product/137963/NoMfgCode/All-CCL-Desktops/CCL-Elite-Raven-III-Gaming-PC/CCL-EL-RAV3/ http://www.chillblast.com/Chillblast-Fusion-Typhoon.html http://www.ginger6.com/g6-sonic-fsx1-flight-sim-pc-p-51929.html?gclid=CjwKEAjwiumdBRDZyvKvqb_6mkUSJABDyYOzh3XyZwlTHE6Hycr-upl_nh03sKw_SD147GiXSbu0VhoCZPPw_wcB http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fast-Six-Core-4-1ghz-8gb-1tb-Flight-Simulator-Sim-X-Home-Computer-Free-Joystick-/251048453581?_trksid=p2054897.l5658 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Freshtech-1600Mhz-Vantage-Windows-Gaming/dp/B00IOQVBWI/ref=aag_m_pw_dp?ie=UTF8&m=A1ETURH7GKZEHA Any help would be appreciated
