Flight1 Carribean Scenery Problems....

Recommended Posts

After installing Flight1's "Isles of the West Indies" I found that the default Virgin Islands' St. Thomas and St. Croix seem to have extra land than they should have. Basically their now mire square blocks in the middle of the ocean with texture and trees than the contoured islands that they should be. I hope this problem gets corrected soon...Les--

The whole coastline of Puerto Rico, the U.S. and British Virgin Islands is missing, the bays as well as lagoons are also filled with land. It is very annoying, especially since it is my preferred flying enviroment, it is my home region.

Same here. Disabling the scenery did not restore the coastlines either. Fortunately I had backed up my system and have restored it. I will wait till a patch is released.Pesi

Apparently, the installation of the Caribbean scenery re-writes certain bgl files in the Scenedb, Carib, scenery folder. This is what affects the Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands coastlines. Restoring those original bgls takes care of the problem, but affects the new scenery. I'm sure they will correct this.Lee

Well, right now I wouldn't recommend anyone purchase this scenery. It's just not the caliber that payware scenery should be. On my system the textures are so green that I feel like I am flying in a cartoon. I wish I would of held off. The Cardinal was worth the price but the scenery package was a waste of money IMHO.I too believe that the problems will be fixed and I will most likely enjoy it a little more then but, so far, their tech support forums are being ingnored. I'll give them a few more days to at least respond.

The textures DO remind me more of FS98, than those of FS2K,FS2002, and CFS2. A bit too much on the "splotchy" side with neon colors. The plus, are the airports complete with buildings and the elevations.L.Adamson

>There's not a lot wrong with Toni Agramont's freeware >Caribbean, guys! A search of "Agramont" in the entire AVSIM library gives me 6 hits, none of which are Caribbean scenery or textures. Do you have a link to his freeware Caribbean files?

Same here. It looks ok from 10000 feet, but if you gat nearer it looks like lollipop land. The textures are really low-res.Alex

There is only one problem with Toni Agramont's Caribbean sceneries:"ATTENTION!!!. THIS SCENERY REQUIRES TEXTURES NOVA", says the 'readme'. The given link to the NOVA textures however doesn't work anymore. On the NOVA site (WWW.FSNOVA.COM) I can find those textures neither. I am afraid the downloaded files are useless without the NOVA textures...http://httpd.chello.nl/~j-kusters/logo.gif [link:Ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/Tradewind/"]Visit TCA TradeWind ]Jozef[/font

Quite likely. But then they'd be adressed (like the floating building thing already has been adressed...) and then there'd be nothing left to complain about and we don't want that, do we now :-lolYes, there are some issues.Yes, many of those should have been resolved in the betas (in fact, some were noticed in the betas but slipped through into the release)Yes, Chris is aware of problems and is working on fixing them.Yes, the textures do look a bit weird on some machines (but not others it seems).No, this will not keep me from buying the rest of the set (I just might be crazy enough to tone down some of those textures a bit if I can find them).
