Hi Shez,Thanks for the KHOU scenery! Can you tell me why I seem to have ground flicker in the high-res version? It looks to me like it is flickering between the addon's scenery and the default scenery textures or something. I have installed everything correctly, in the addon scenery folder, so I'm not sure why the flicker. Any ideas?Thanks,Tim

Should not do that. You need to check if there is another Texas or Houston scenery addon was already installed.Shez

I know it shouldn't do that. I don't have any other Texas or Houston scenery. Well, I have scenery for KIAH (iah2008.zip at Avsim), so maybe that is a conflict there somehow? I'm not sure what else could possibly be conflicting. I don't have any Texas mesh or anything else that should conflict, and I've checked for duplicate AFCADs and so on, and there are none.Tim

Hi Pete.I just saw it on the front page.Thanks for the links though.Time zone difference I think between the forum postings, and it getting to the front page.Stupid question time now, what are the differences between high res and light version. I don't want to sound thick or anything, but just wondered what would be different between the two versions.IE what would be visibly / load bearing different.PS Whats this Airport 2.60 the readme mentions.Thanks for any feed back.

The high-res version has higher detail ground and terminal building textures which will tax your system if it is slow or does not have enough video RAM or system RAM. They are in 1024x1024 size and at 32bit in some cases. The low res is not strictly "low" res but normal resolution with 512x512 and DXT3 textures for better system handling. The low res should still be pretty good.Shez

Just a precaution on some textures that might be needed because some parts of the scenery are made in the program Airport 2.60. If you are seeing everything OK then don't bother.Shez

Nice airport and thanks for uploading two versions. I really appreciate a ready-made option to trade off some detail for smaller texture loads.

I have the flickering too. I am using the FS9 high res version. I do not have any scenery, mesh, or landclass anywhere in Texas. The only think I have is a few AFCADs in Texas.

I've send Shez some screenshots of this and other information, and I know he is looking into it to try and figure out what is causing this. Hopefully we will have a fix soon.Tim

So, where can I get these Airport 2.60 textures? Checked KHOU today and I'm seeing some odd problem arounds the gates, squares around the gate markings. Never seen them before, I was wondering if perhaps it's a missing texture or two.

That does not appear to be a Airport texture missing problem. I think reinstall the scenery from scratch.Shez

Hi Shez, uninstalled it, reinstalled it, still have the problem, see the attached capture.The squares will change as I move, but that's pretty much it.

Those are really old textures, "Airport 2.10 Textures" -> 1999. ;-DI've downloaded that package and I've never seen those kinds of extensions. Will they work with FS9?Edit: well, I can open them with DXTBmp, so I guess I need to try.

They work in FS9 just fine.

No harm to keep them installed as a few "older" sceneries call for their use.You might also review the other "must have" files in the FS2004 section at the link I listed. For instance the Nova textures are also occasionally used and not all authors will include them in the DL package they create.

I don't really have any older sceneries. I've always had mostly payware, with a few freeware exceptions. I've steered clear of sceneries that needed umpteen texture sets. Lately I've put FS9 on a diet as well. I've mostly removed sceneries that had no custom ground textures and/or that were kinda archaic by today's standards. KHOU certainly doesn't fall in either category, but if I can't fix this, it's gonna go as well.

Mike,I am out of home base, let me get back to figure out if it is happening with my set up too. Looks like a flatten issue. Do you have UT installed?Shez
