Siamavsim Vtbs

Recommended Posts

Hi,I just downloaded the new version of VTBS from www.siamavsim.com - it really is very nice indeed.I initially had a problem with it though - I see comments have been posted before about the same thing. Despite this being a supposedly 'fixed' version, the runways disappear under the ground as you get anywhere near them: for some reason the runway height has been set a few feet below the ground level. If anyone is having the same problem it is quite easy to fix using fsflatten in conjunction with AFCAD2. Or, if you use SCASM, save this text as a sca file and turn it into a bgl file in the usual way from a command prompt.Or, if anyone needs this and can't do the above, I'll upload my fix to the AVSIM library upon request (I can't think that SiamAvsim would object as the flatten is my own file??).Scasm text:-------------------------------------------------------------------------; SCASM file created by FSTflatten.exeCopyright(www.fs-traveler.com)Header ( 1 13.7094620244893 13.6515766233066 100.779108025733 100.716551906088)LatRange ( 13.6515766233066 13.7094620244893)Set ( areamx 64 )Area16N Elevation ( 1.524 13.7094620244893 100.716551906088 ;1 13.6523476073572 100.716659596665 ;2 13.6515766233066 100.779108025733 ;3 13.7074368975481 100.778717424744 ;4 )END16--------------------------------------------------------------------------Martin

Typical: I tried half the evening to download the 'fix' file on the SiamAvsim site, but I couldn't. In the end, I understood that the fix wasn't needed for files downloaded after mid-December. But now I have just managed to download it, I see they give a solution to this problem by adding some flatten lines to the scenery.cfg entry.Well, if anyone prefers the bgl file I made I'll still upload it, but if you use the flatten lines you won't need it of course,M.
