  1. Thanks for the response guys, much appreciated. Cheers, Chris
  2. Hi Guys, I have purchased both of these fabulous products recently and I vaguely remember someone in another thread telling me that some combine textures from both REX Essentials with Overdrive and REX 4 Textures Direct with soft clouds. Can anyone tell me how to or if you can use some settings from both and if so how you go about it as when you are in one product when you get to the end it asks if you want to fly now or do you finish loading your textures from one of them then switch to the other then opnce those textures are loaded, do you then click fly now ? Any assistance is appreciated. Cheers, Chris
  3. hi gets, Where does it give me that option, is it like right at the end where you pay or something ? as when I was goping to purchase earlier, it was asking for my address and stuff and I just assumed that they would be mailed. Cheers, Chris
  4. Hi Guys, Very quick query today. When you purchase something from the REX store, do you get the option to download it rathen than have it delivered by mail ? . I am about to purchase some products and just want to make sure that you can download them, rather than have them delivered by mail. Cheers, Chris
  5. Thanks again mate..The 4 year old was sitting up on my lap and he can now with his favourite airplane as in Jetstar use the throttle and take off but then being only 4 he is not sure what to do next and ask's daddy to take over but he`s working on it. Cheers, Chris
  6. Hi Guys, Problem solved so let`s sing Hella Lu Ya... After so many trials and tribulations and many many WTF's and this is BS that I care to remember, I now have a fully fledged Jetstar repaint in my arsenal under the TOM A330-200 model.. After weeks of trying to work this out, I realised where I was going wrong this morning after all this time. When I was going to the aircraft.cfg file, what I was doing as I have Vista 64 bit is go to the aircraft.cfg file and was double clicking on it and it was bringing up some media info screen and I was doing the copying and pasting into the front screen there and saving text thinking I was doing it right well how wrong was I. After reading the post by Guitarman ( You rock bloke and if you are ever in Brisbane I will buy you a beer and you can bring your guitar and we can sing Koom By Yar My Lord together ) I went tothe aircraft.cfg file and right clicked and opened with wordpad and I was thinking WTF, what is this screen, this is all the writing I have been looking for so I did the paste and renamed flightsim.x withthe next number in the repaint sequence and BANG! there was my plane. Many Many thanks to everyone who gave me advice,hints tips you name it over the last 2 weeks, much appreciated. Cheers, Chris
  7. Hello Fellow Flight Simmers, After several days of uncertainty casue my FSX decided to chuck a wobbly and not work all because I put Disk 1 in for a repair and then fsx not starting up, I have received some great assistance in getting things back going again. This all originally started when I was desperately trying to find an already done Jetstar model plane but then went down the path of repaints well all hell broke loose.. Anyways, I have just downloaded a few Jetstar repaint files and do you reckon I have any clue on how to get them to transfer onto either the default FSX A321 or TOM A330-200, well i have no clue depsite following the instructions pretty good I thought....:-( I am a noob at this repaint thing guys and I have a 4 year old boy who just loves the Jetstar plane for some reason and I really want to get this up and running. I have downloaded repaints for the following models : Jetstar registered VH-VQI and VH-CBD Airbus A320 paint schemes and the instructions go as follows : INSTALLATION: Simply unzip this file into your Flight Simulator X directory, and make sure "use folder names" is ticked/checked. Then open the Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\Airbus_A321\aircraft.cfg file and add the following text. (Be sure to replace the "X" in [fltsim.X] to match the next consecutive fltsim.n number in your own aircraft.cfg file. If this is the first reapint you've added to the default A321, the required numbers will be 4 and 5. If you haven't added any repaints to the default A321 or made any changes to the aircraft.cfg file, feel free to use the aircraft.cfg file included in this archive. //-------------------------------------------------------------------------- [fltsim.X] title=Airbus A321 Jetstar sim=Airbus_A321 model= panel= sound= texture=JetStar_VQI kb_checklists=AirbusA321_check kb_reference=AirbusA321_ref atc_id=VH-VQI atc_airline=JetStar atc_flight_number= ui_manufacturer="Airbus" ui_type="A321" ui_variation="Jetstar" ui_typerole="Commercial Airliner" ui_createdby="Australian Simulation" description="Jetstar is an Australian buget airline that flies mainly domestic routes between major cities, and also a single international route to New Zealand."

I am practically on my hands and knees begging anyone to help me or give me english instructions to this noob at repaints so that I can get a Jetstar model plane up and going. Please someone help and I will be forever in debt and if anyone knows of a link to directly download a Jetstar model plane for FSX, I will call you GOD for life. Cheers, Chris
  8. Hi Jets, Thanks for your reply mate but a lot of the sites well pretty much all of them I go to only have re-paints for Jetstar and I can`t find an actual jetstar model plane to download. If you know of any site or sites I am all ears. Cheers, Chris
  9. Hello Fellow Flight Simmers, Please forgive the first part of the subject heading, it is my small attempt at humour.....:-) O.K., here's the deal.. I am DESPERATELY trying to find a Jetstar model plane that I can download for FSX. My 4 year old boy is absolutely for some reason fascinated by the Orange and Silver Colours of the plane and after a recent trip up North to Rockhampton I was able to get him into the cockpit once the plane had landed and get his photo taken with the Pilot which the photo takes pride of place framed on his wall. Poor old Daddy (Me) has just spent the good part of the last 4 hours searching the NET to no avail in finding a Jetstar model plane to download. I couldn`t even find a site where I could actually order the plane on CD if it even came to that. Anyways, my 4 year old is devestated and I mean devestated and he won`t talk to me until I find him this plane. I go to a lot of sitesd like FSdownloads and others but they all have textures and re-paints for Jetstar models but no actual Jetstar planes to download. Can anyone help a brother out and allow me to go within 5 feet of my 4 year old without being told to get away, I will be forever grateful. Cheers, Chris
  10. Hi Flight Simmers, I have previously installed REX Roads and Grass but when I then go into a game it still seems as though I have 2d models of things. How can I know for sure that I have them installe correctly and is there a way if I haven`t to delete these from my system and re-add them correctly ? I have been wanting to get proper roads at the very least for some time and thought I added the file correctly but not sure if I have....:-( Cheers, Chris
  11. I have also guys installed the REX Roads update and turned off ALL UTX features ( I ahve all four USA, Europe, Canada and Alaska) but I cant get the High Def roads look and I have a like $4.5K+ computer, I7 procesor with all the bells and whistles and the best of stuff so any help is appreciated. I have tried flying and taking off froma number of airports with roads around them but just get the plain old boring looks like FSX default roads...lol Cheers, Chris
  12. Hi Guys, I went and downloaded the Grass Texture FSX file and I followed the instructions to a tee from Timest999 : HD & standard resolution enhanced grass and environment bitmap for FSX. There are two resolutions for this file - 1024, and high definition 4096. In order to view the full 4096 resolution within FSX, you will need to edit your fsx.cfg file and alter the entry: TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=4096 NOTE: This value resets to 1024 each time you make any adjustments in the FSX DISPLAY settings, so you'll need to reset it back to 4096 if you want the high definition version displayed. REX will automatically set this value if launching FSX from the GUI. [installation] To install, copy either the 1024 or 4096 High Definition detail1.bmp to your FSX Scenery\World\Texture folder. Please ensure you backup your original detail1.bmp file. IMPORTANT: The HD 4096 texture is recommended for high end computer systems only. If you are experiencing in-game stuttering with 4096, use the 1024 texture Now, I have done all of the above however I just went to a random airport as in Archerfield in Brisbane and I did not get that bits of spikey grass on the side of the runway or when I decided to taxi around a bit. Am I missing something here ?..Do I need to change any settings at all ??..Is this grass thing only available at certain airports ?..Can anyone tell me an airort to go to so that I can see if th grass is there ? Sorry for the mundane questions guys but any help is appreciated. Cheers, Chris
