I've never done this before - post on this forum about another forum issue. I purchased the above add-on scenery and had a problem and wanted to join their forum to ask my question. I registered but there was an error in my registration and it did not go through. Tried with another e-mail and same problem. Says failed to send e-mail. Says to please contact their administrator. But without login abilities, I cannot contact anyone on that forum to find out what the problem is. So I thought I'd post here to see if anyone would have any suggestions to try? Thanks, Al

Thanks Dave. Do you happen to know his "user name" so I can send him a PM via this forum? I checked under greth but nothing came up. Really appreciate your help. Al

Hi Mike: Thanks for your interest in helping. Actually I finally got my FlightZone2 login activated by their moderator and just posted this message on their forum. But since you asked I will repeat it here.Just purchased Flight Zone 2 Portland and I really love this scenery. Can't believe I have not come across it before this. But I had a simple question which I hope there is a simple solution. I am using it with Wideview and while I was testing something else I wanted to disable it in FS scenery library. Right now it is at the top of my list as # 1 and 2. So I just unchecked each box, closed FS and reopened it and everything looked fine until I was flying around KSEA Seattle and noted that all the coastlines had straight edges or completely squared off. No curvature or smoothness to the coasts near any body of water. Any ideas what this means and how to correct it? If I go back into FS scenery library and recheck Portland everything is fine again.Thank, Al

KPDX changes/replaces default files. It becomes really interesting when you have FlyTampa's KSEA as well. Not to mention Ultimate Terrain...I wouldn't advise you to try and correct this, just enable both layers. ;-)But if you want, go to Scenery/Namw/Scenery, search for files named '*915150.ori'. I have six of them, I think they are the ones disabled by KPDX and replaced by custom files in one or both of the KPDX layers. You can try re-enabling them by changing ori to bgl.But again, no idea what's gonna happen as other sceneries may be involved as well. Like FlyTampa's KSEA and UT.

What do you mean by "just enable both layers".Right now this is the only add on scenery I have on my PC. It is a new PC and have not yet installed all my other stuff. I thought there was a fix for the UT scenery. Does that work?Al

I meant this: "If I go back into FS scenery library and recheck Portland everything is fine again.". ;-)And if everything's fine, why the need for a fix? Don't complicate things. :D

Greetings all!Know that this topic is a bit aged...but does anyone know where to get the patches to help with FlightZone Portland and Ultimate Terrain? The links referenced in their forum are not good anymore.Finally got on the UT-USA bandwagon and have run into a few CTD issues when flying into this airport and a few other 3rd party sceneries (including Imaginesim KATL).Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!Thank you.

Does anyone happen to have the workarounds that were posted on the Flightscenery forum for making this scenery work in FSX? The website is gone now, so all that great work of tweaking that a few folks did is gone.

Does anyone know where I can get the patch for UT for this scenery? I used to have UT, then uninstalled it. I've now reinstalled FZ02 after almost a year, and I'm still having CTD issues on approach into PDX. I would really love to use this scenery.

I experience CTD on approach to KPDX when coming from Mt. Rainier in my PMDG 737. I have flown around the scenery to try it out and had no problems! Tough when I have flown 5 hours from KBOS and start my approach into Portland I get a CTD... I searched a lot and can't find a solution. I only have one AFCAD installed. Help will be greatly appreciated, right now I just can't enjoy flying here! I don't use UT or FSGenesis or Mesh add-ons.Thanks!

I too experienced a CTD on the same approach coming from KSEA. I have UT and Holger's Columbia River with patches installed and all layers correct in the scenery library.
