Aircraft Wheels Sinking into Addon Scenery

Recommended Posts

Hi all - been noticing an issue with some addon scenery whereby the aircraft wheels sit/sink about a foot or so into the ground - runways and taxiways. Sometimes tarmac, sometimes not. It happens with all aircraft so I can generally rule out contact points. Again, not all addon airports but roughly 10-15%.


I searched this topic exensively and only just found stuff related to contact points...


I figured it was mostly likely the mesh settings but nothing seemed to work. Inquiries with developers either yield "we don't support this in P3D" or "reinstall the scenery." Great, thanks.


I'd love to post a screenshot, but even after reading the rules and such, must be pretty stupid because linking both a png and jpeg from a publicly-shared Google Drive file didn't work... so let me know how...


Any help is appreciated.

+1. Have noticed the same problem with the recently released Orbx Global Openclass EU. I have all of the recommended files installed: ORBX Global, Orbx Global Vector and the Pilots mesh recommended on the Orbx site.

My system specs: i7 4790k @4.0 GHz, Nvidia GeForce 970, 16 Gb RAM, Windows 10.  Sim: P3Dv4.5 Professional; Orbx Global and Vector, Orbx OpenLC Eu and NA, and most Orbx FTX regions in EU and NA. Preferred aircraft: PMDG DC-6, Manfred Jahn DC-3 and A2A Bonanza, Comanche and Cherokee
