9.1 and london buildings

Recommended Posts

I am very pleased with the patch as my sim is now as smooth as silk. Even the touch-down/chimney smoke fades away in a nice controlled way that is hard to describe. I am also pleased that lots of London's buildings and bridges have shown up in the sim. The only problem is that St Pauls's, The houses of parlement and Battersea powerstation (to name but a few) have disappeared! Any ideas?Nitram

Hey Nitram,I have all the buildings you mention in london, but I've noticed quite a few towns/cities in the UK have less buildings after the patch, and I'm running autogen at max.Regards,Bob Jones

Bob if you have these buildings, what the hell happened to mine?! It cannot be a system resource issue as I am running 3000 64 bit amd chip, 1gb of ram, x800 Pro video card and a decent motherboard. I do not have any stutters, even running with UK vfr scenery, active sky and ultimate traffic. Maybe they might appear again!Rigards Nitram

I don't care though, since it's not that much different. My problem is my system is maxed at 2002-like settings. I can't turn everything on until I upgrade.I wonder if others noticed less autogen buildings? You only get this in London area?

Nitram, could those buildings be autogen or scenery complexity/detail setting? I dont know where and what they would look like but I flew into Heathrow after the patch and it was very nice.I landed rwy 27L I think. Where in relation to that would the buildings be?Bill

Nitram, you mention that you use the UK VFR scenery...is that the Just Flight scenery? If so, you may remember that it disables the FS default autogen. There is a small add-on at Just Flights' site which will return a lot of the 'important' London landmarks, but elsewhere, you'll have none of the little houses, blocks of flats, trees, etc....which'll also explain to a degree why your sim runs so smoothly over the UK - no autogen to worry about placing and rendering!

I have also looked for the add-on at justflight, but it is not listed in the support section. Can you point me too it? I should add that these buildings were there before the microsoft patch.Regards Nitram

Under your botty on final. The snaky bit is the River Thames and the lumps of concrete are London. The Thames will be just to your right on initial approach, but if you're still seeing them on short final you're much too low and too short!Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/newlogo.jpg

www.justflight.comJust follow links for VFR scenery..it may even link you to the VFR developers website(www.visualflight.co.uk)...it's been a while since I've been there. But, if this is the VFR scenery you use, regaardless as to how dense or complex you set autogen to be, in FS9, you won't get any anywhere in the UK where you have the scenery installed.

Justflight do not have a fix for the missing scenery in their support section:-(

Battersea Power Station is not part of the sutogen, it's part of the scenery. You say that you've turned up autogen, but maybe it's the tag above the autogen you need to adjust.BPS is certainly present in mine.Allcott
