Database Manager and FTX Central


Recommended Posts

Hi there

Do I need to run the Database Manager for each and every FTX Central level, Default, Oceania, North America and Europe?

For instance, if I install a new airport in the FTX Oceania area and have this area enabled in the FTX Central, should I then go through a dedicated Database run according to this area, or does the Database Manager automatically register ALL levels regardless of any particular area settings in the FTX Central?

Cheers, Morten

The Database Manager will look at what is present in your FSX scenery library, so only files that are activated within FTX Central will be scanned. However, from my experiments, when an FTX area is activated, the others are as well.

For instance "England" is currently activated in FTX Central, but when I load FS and go to Walter Sutton's Private Strip, I'm sitting at the FTX NA airfield, not in the default scenery. Therefore, unless a scenery is specifically de-activated in FTX Central (i.e. you have told it not to load, not just loaded a different area) then it seems that it will load. If you're not sure what's present in the scenery library, you can check by just going there (alt-w, s inside the sim). Each airport and FTX regional scenery is listed seperately with a logical entry name in the list.
