Its only supported for V4 but I have tried it in P3D V3 and it seems to work fine in that sim. It will not work in FSX, if I release a FSX version the night lights will not function as intended and it is too much work to re engineer them unfortunatly.

As mentioned in a earlier post I am no longer developing for FSX.

I'll happily release the A-10A for FS9, but the TR-1A is nicely covered in the existing MAIW Beale package along with other variants of the aircraft and there is no need to duplicate that one element.

Give me a few days to package the A-10A. I'm trying to finish the F-35B manual at the moment.

Just a quick note. The file has been re uploaded due to a aircraft crash from some users. So I have removed all crash boxes to be safe.

Cheers

Hi

I have just tried to replicate your problem but I cant seem to see it with the FSX SP2 at least.
The FSX version is not something that I have tested in depth as I do not support or use FSX anymore.

Cheers

Ian

Just downloaded and set up the FSX version, but I can't see the anomaly. I don't have FSX Global or UK loaded.

I'm trying to get the first of the F-35 packages out at the moment. I'll upload the A-10A's for FS9 with a paint kit once I've done that.

Just installed the FSX version and Alconbury and all looks amazing in FSX. No anomalies in the scenery but I can't get the AI aircraft to show. I'm getting other aircraft to visit but no A-10's or TR1-A's anywhere. Will keep trying to see if its my install but traffic set to 80%!

Having a couple of visiting F-101 Voodoo's was a nice surprise though!

I think the traffic is set at 100% only Dave. Try it and see if that reveals the Alconbury AI.

Firstly Ian thank you for releasing the FSX version of RAF Alconbury. Secondly I have a problem.I have installed it in the usual way,
and it sits happily in the FSX scenery library.However when I go to select it in the in game destination selector, it is nowhere to be seen. I have tried searching under EGWZ and the name, but there is nothing.However if I fly from the Twin bases near by and look through the AI aircraft in the in game drop down menu, I can select an A-10 based at Alconbury and see the scenery as normal :?
I have numerous MAIW/ACG/UKMIL scenery but I have never had this happen to me before. Can anyone help me?
I have FSX SP2 in stalled.

Further to my last I have found that this happens! If I do a search on EGWZ in the in game menu it has RAF Northholt high lighted.If I select it and load Northholt I am at Northholt base on the runway.I f I then use the drop down menu for AI a/c all the Alconbury A-10's
are shown.If I select one of those it takes me to RAF Alconbury with all of the air base shown.
However I am still unable to select it in the normal way at the start.
