My word, that looks like payware. Thank you Flo for the link.

My word, that looks like payware.

 

It sure is payware quality.

 

 

The scenery doesn't only cover the airport itself, but also the city of Prague, which is situated right East of LKPR, but sadly enough neither autogen nor landmarks are displayed in the scenery outside of the airport. (Maybe I just missed something?)

 

Thought, I'd post some more screenshots here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks a lot for giving such a great scenery for free.

The landmarks can be downloaded here:

http://vfr-praha.ic.cz/index.php?clanek=download

 

Look for "VFR objekty Praha 1.2" and when using FSX you will have to deactivate one bgl file, containing the word "pankrac".

 

And deactivate ortho from LKPR scenery folder - there are files including ortho for airport itself and the city. I deactivated both of them, hi-res texture of airport is enough...

 

And voila - you have the most beautiful city on the world in its whole beauty...:D

 

In case you need some help, just drop me a message.

I wonder if this is the same as the LKPR I downloaded here a few months ago? http://lkpr-scenery.wz.cz/en/index.php

 

Although the one I downloaded from the link mentioned is titled as RC2 and was dated 5-6-2008, the one in the top post has updates dated this year.

The new one uses some objects from the old one, but newer and accurate is the one mentioned in the first post.

 

Thanks for the info. I guess I will go ahead and download the newer one and give it a shot.

There were two with that word. I deleted the one called "pankrak". Should it have been the other, because the rows of trees around the airport are like cardboard standups rectangles.

 

In case you need some help, just drop me a message.

 

Thanks. Just those trees to fix -- oh, also I get a "building crash" flying from the airport low (but not THAT low! <G>) towards the old town (sight-seeing) when getting close to the River Vitava.

 

Else it is excellent scenery.

Pete, you deleted the right one, otherwise you wouldn't have started FSX. The trees are a known bug as those objects are primarily made for FS9.

Regarding the CTD over the city, I will try to contact the authors, but I have no problem at all. Do you have VFR above LKPR in your scenery library?

No way to remove them then? Thery look really naff!

 

Regarding the CTD over the city

 

Not a cTD, only a "building crash" with an invisible building maybe a thousand feet tall or more. And not over the city, more over the hills near on the airport side of the river -- somewhere close to the castle I'd guess (I've been to the brewpub behind the monastery further up than the castle)..

 

Do you have VFR above LKPR in your scenery library?

 

Below in priority tems (lower number in the CFG file). I assumed the airport would need to be on top if the VFR package was providing ground textures.

 

Thanks,

Pete

I had this with Prague scenery but with a version I downloaded about a year ago. If I remember correctly, the similar place you mentioned (I took off from LKPR and flew towards the city.. than invisible crash). Never found a solution and because of that I never fly there.

So I went there for real this May... the beer is still excelent!

Yes. I'm going again in August for a long weekend. ;-)

Ad trees: Maybe a bgl file, but I really don't know...:-(

 

Ad building crash: They should have been all removed, but apparently weren't. I fly with crashes disabled. But there's for at their website where you can tell them about bugs...

 

I have a different problem which maybe you could help me with. I get wrong vectors by Radar Contact when approaching LKPR and RC window shows wrong runway heading, for example 282° for RWY 30, which should be 304°. Any idea what's wrong? Other airports work well with RC, and the author of LKPR says it's not a probelm within AFCAD...

So the True heading is okay (307), but he's got a bad error with a ridiculous Mag Var of 25 degrees! This is why you get 282!

 

This smacks of a simple careless mistake with a decimal point. Probably should be 2.5.

 

Furthermore, according to the latest charts from Navigraph (for LKPR they are November 2010) the MagVar is now 3 E, and the runway names are changed: no 30! That's now 13/31.

 

When you're at Prague, just send me a private message, we can have a beer together, I live there and know some good places...:D The real deal, not those tourist places...:D

 

Thanks, but there's a party of 8 of us, at least, all keen on brew pubs. We have a list to visit. Previously I've been to Pivovasky Dum (and Klub), U Medvidtu, U Dvou Kocek, and Klášterní pivovar Strahov

(monastery). We have some others recommended and a list form the Internet. What would you recommend, looking for both good beer and good food?

 

Regards

Pete

U Medvidtu

 

You probably mean "U Medvidku" :wink: .. they make their own beer and have one of the strongest beer you can get (in the world.. they say).

Sorry, couldn't resist.. back to the topic..

Typo. And yes, but I prefer weaker beer -- I like to be able to drink more! The U Dvou Kocek (The Two Cats) is nearby and has delicious dark beer made on the premises too. All the places we've visited before make their own beer, excepting Pivovarsky Klub which has beer from its sister Pivovarsky Dum.

 

Sorry, couldn't resist.. back to the topic..

 

I looked for ways to correct the bad MagVar in the Prague AFD BGL, but none of my compilers like it. i don't know what it was built with, but neither the FS9 nor FSX tools like it.. :-(

 

Cheers

Pete

Definitely U Pravdu! Great selection of superb beers at right temperature, and best ribs in Prague! http://goo.gl/maps/f4UZ

Not one of those touristic places, but real Prague pub.

 

Anyway, thanks for your help with LKPR afcad!

Does anyone know if this is still being worked on or is going to be updated again for the above problems? There have been no updates since 28th May...

yeah.. it is great .. but as many of the free addons .. the problem is compatibility with FSX and DX10 .. as it was build for FS2009

 

have tried it, and was checking out if I could customize it by removing some stuff I don't want .. like the orthomap for prague .. since I have the UTX and GEX which is good enough

 

it's a big FPS eater though .. since the lines are casting shadows .. but I guess that's similar issue with payed addons, ? .. haven't bough any yet so can't compare

 

it's reallly great .. but I'm not sure if the advantages level out the disadvantages :(
