    I have had both those controllers and use the TCA Airbus stick now without the throttle quadrant. I do this because I found the throttle quadrant a bit fiddly to use when I wanted to switch from GA to Airbus and to other sims like Wings over Flanders Fields.

    Well to be totally honest I was not really thinking of loading it on my laptop (which is quite happily running AFS2 but on my wife's PC). She is still working full time and is going to return to working in the CBD for 3 days per week soon and she has a gaming machine so ..........

    I will probably pass because I would not want to mess up any of the settings she has on the PC for her work. :)

    Thanks for the info though. Much appreciated.

    Hmmm.... you make it sound like it might be worth a shot to try it, and there are certainly a lot of Aussie things on those websites. My laptop is not as powerful as your system specs and the base cost is about $100 through Steam . Bookmarked those websites and thinking about it.

    If you are looking for high quality scenery with world wide coverage then you will not find it in AFS2. Users have made some pretty good stuff and posted it here but we do not have whole world coverage. What we do have is incredible frame rates and a game that can be played on all 3 operating systems as well as on phones and tablets.

    PS. I am not sure as I do not have it but I think MSFS is probably the only sim that has that sort of world scenery coverage and quality although you can expect several iconic landmarks and cities to be missing or lacking in detail. (For example I read that the Sydney Harbor bridge was not modelled).

    I have managed to delete the bookmark for downloading user made airports for FS2 and I cannot remember the name of the website. Could someone please help me out thanks. :(

    Thanks I can now see trains. The problem was that my laptop is a dual GPU one and I did not realise how that works. No manual came with the machine to explain anything. Once I went into the NVidia control panel and attached the GeForce video card to Steam it worked a lot better. Frame rates shot up too! That took me a week to figure out.


    I am wondering about the amsroadtraficv2 file. I unzipped it and put it in scenery places but i have never seen a train in the scenery. Should I be putting the amstrain files somewhere else? Maybe I am not looking in the right place. Where are they exactly in the scenery? I have been looking all over Amsterstam for them.:(

    Hartman's solution works fine for me but only after removing scenery and installing it again manually to my F drive. For some obscure (to me anyway) reason my system did not appreciate me just moving scenery from one drive to another.

    I fully appreciate what Tomfa said. I have offloaded my GB and Ireland, Norway, Finland, Kathmandu and Paris because I ran out of memory. I only wish I knew of the "always defaulting to drive C:\Documents" when I had a 250gb SSD installed as my drive C! I have tried Hartman's solution without success so far but will keep trying.

    If the George Washington bridge is showing up in the DVD version and not the Steam version then they are not quite the same versions. I do not see why we steam users could not get an upgrade to incorporate it! Perhaps we should ask IPACS directly.
