Australian Seaports all messed up!

Recommended Posts

So having finally bought the PBY Catalina X in the recent PCAviator sale, I have been looking for ORBX seaports to fly her round.

 

Problem is, all my Australian ones seem to be totally messed up.

 

I have tried YCY1, YTS1, YBH1, YLZ1 and all of them do one of the following:

 

1) Deposit me landing gear down in the sea on a sort of underwater runway 6 inches below the surface, which has a centre line running off across the ocean.

 

2) Load me up into solid rock or a wooded hill on the coast.

 

It doesn't seem to matter if I enable or disable ORBX Oz, the problem remains.

 

I don't have any other add-on scenery for that region either, other than the freeware ORBX airports - and I don't think that I have anything else that would affect it except for the Holgermesh...which I have tried disabling to no effect.

 

I have tested NZSI, PNW and some non ORBX US and European seaports and they all seem fine - it is just Oz that is a mess!

 

Any ideas?

I have default FSX with a dozen addon airports. All 4 of those you listed do not exist in my FSX. So yeah, seems like its an airport design specific issue and I would contact the creators.

lol - I thought they were default airports!

 

I have no idea where they came from in that case - must have been bundled in with another add-on or plane...

Holgermesh for Oz - but I tried that on and off and it didn't make any difference. No other meshes for that region.

Did you try clearing scenery indexes with the top menu in FTX Central?

Didn't the Catalina come with some seaports? If so maybe its acalsjh beween them and the Orbx scenery?
