ORBX scenery library order

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Hoping someone can help me with the scenery library order within FSX for ORBX products.

 

Currently I have FTX Global, FTX Vector, openLC Europe and FTX Scotland.

 

Within FTX Central, i've had to apply FTX Global with Europe not selected because when I do select Europe, I come across texture problems both within the FTX Scotland region and outside it. With FTX Global selected, there are no problems.

 

I've done a few 'fixes' suggested though this has not fixed the issue. I'm fairly sure it is to do with the scenery order I have in FSX.

 

My current order is, from the top:

 

FTXAA_ORBXLIBS

FTX Scotland

-

-

-

Addon Scenery

OpenLC Europe

-

-

-

Standard FSX entries (Edwards_AFB - Africa)

ORBX!Vector_OBJ

ORBX!Vector_APT

ORBX!Vector_CVX

ORBX!Vector_EXX

FS Global

-

-

Base entries (1107 Base - 0000 Base)

ORBXVector_AEC

Default Scenery

Default Terrain

 

 

If anyone with these same products could provide any input that would be much appreciated

 

Thank you

I dont have the exact same products but have had similar experience. I have vector global and oceania installed

I found that even if I had oceania ticked that weird textures would bleed through in australia where golf courses should be.

I found that I really cant fly between regions  and if I am flying in an orbx region like OZ or  I just untick all the global and vector entries in my scenery library that fixed my issues and if I want to fly in png for instance I tick them back

Order looks right, they had a problem with the 1.3 update for Global though.  Maybe this will help?..............

 

From their forums, official post.

 

 

If you have installed the Global 1.30  after installing openLC EU you will see texture issues in some areas.

 

Simplest solution is to re-install the East component of the 4 openLC EU installers and the latest Orbxlibs afterwards.


Just some extra info on what happened..........

 

 

 

Unfortunately the Global installer will put back the files that were in the 'Baltic mini-demo'. This is easily resolved by running the openLC EUEast installer and this will resolve the texture issues in that region.

Sounds similar. The textures would go crazy.

Very interesting. I'll give all this a go and report back tomorrow.

 

Many thanks!

Just tried the above suggestion.

 

Unfortunately no joy.

 

I've got water where it shouldn't be and messed up/changing textures.

 

Everything up to date. Latest Orbx libraries installed.

Thanks for your reply.

 

Played about with a few things and it seems to be working now, though I'm not sure exactly what it was.

So I assume entries of large pay ware airports like DreamTeam and FlyTampa go above all the Orbx stuff?

That would be correct.  If you look at an ORBX install that has ORBX airports as well, those are above everything else but right below the ORBX Libs entry.  However since 3rd party airports don't use the Libs you can just put them up at the top.

I have installed FSX,global,vector, and Europe files on the same drive. Is this ok or will it be better to install in spear ate drives?

Useful thread, thanks.

 

Just one thing, where does Addon Scenery go in the list?  If I put it high up as in the OP will it not take priority over addon payware airports which

have their own layers?

Charles,

 

I notice that every time I do an update with Orbx (add new scenery) it moves all my large airports like DreamTeam and Fly Tampa to where they are positioned below the Orbx scenery.

 

When that happens, then I have to follow the tedious process of moving each and every large airport in the scenery folders dialog box back up above the Orbx stuff?

 

Is there a way to stop that from happening?

From the manual (pag 13):

"Scenario 3: If you intend to spend some time in an Orbx FTX Region without leaving

If you intend to spend some time flying within the boundaries of an Orbx FTX Region, for example Europe

(England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, etc.), then you can select to use Region Exclusive Mode

To use Region Exclusive Mode, simply select the FTX Region (in this example, Europe), then press Apply.

Note that openLC Europe is not the FTX Europe region and selecting it will cause anomalies in the

scenery.

openLC is a Global addon and works only with Global selected. Scenario 1, Scenario 2 or Scenario 4 are

applicable where openLC is concerned."

Hi Bill,

 

you should be able to solve this by setting an insertion point in your FTX Central for the ORBX sceneries. Normally the recommended position is to place the insertion point at Addon Scenery, so any ORBX items will then be added to your scenery library just above the Addon Scenery entry.

 

Info about how to do this is available in just about all the manuals that come with any ORBX product, or via this thread on the ORBX forums:

The success or otherwise of the insertion point function depends on the position of the Addon Scenery relative to Orbx and other areas in the Scenery Library.

 

I've not had an answer to my earlier posting which asked exactly this question. 

If it is put low down, then modifications by ADE or similar may not appear as expected.

Hi,

 

Question, all ORBX entries should be above on top of airports or below?

 

I have all ORBX entries above of airports on top of scenery library it does any difference?

 

Thank you.

Hi Chiraaaaag!!

 

I have the insertion point below my non-ORBX addon scenery and this works fine. The reason is, that some "4th party addon airports" are located in ORBX land (Aerosoft Anchorage for example is in FTX Southern Alaska). So I make sure that PANC has a higher priority than FTX (FTX is lower than PANC).

 

If you experience problems with your order of scenery library entries you may want to try the same.

Hi Oliver, a long time.

 

Yes I experienced problem with MA Berlin Brandeburg and I moved top and problem gone.

 

I don't have any problem with mine scenery order so I guess no problem there and I can maintain all as now, I guess ORBX doesn't says on manual if we must have it on top or below add-on so it's user choice I think.

 

When I installed all I guess ORBX system has ordered all as it should be. (also had all airports installed when I installed ORBX Global)

 

Great job with Airbus series!

 

Thank you.
