FTX Vector Configurator could not find VABB (Mumbai)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I encountered an elevation problem with Thai Creation' Mumbai airport. When I tried to fix the issue by FTX Vector Configurator, there was no VABB (Mumbai ICAO code)  in its data base to select. Your help would be appreciated.

If you're on the latest version of FTX Vector, then go ahead and run the 'auto configuration' which will disable any faulty file regarding the elevation. However, I've already tried that and it didn't help much. Also make sure that you have 'VAJJ' at a higher priority in your scenery library over 'VABB'.

 

There was a thread here where a user came up with the proper fix for elevation issues as well as taxiways floating, etc. You can find the thread/fix here. Other than that, this product is known to have some weird problems and the developer has not responded ever since I personally experienced it so I had to resort to user fixes.

 

Hope this helps!

Thanks Krazyk I will do your advice. I have installed both FTX Global and FTX Vector. Will this fix solve the elevation issue in VABB? On the other hand I wonder why my Vector Configurator does not show VABB !

That user posted fix worked for me as at that time I used both FTX Global and Vector as well. Recently though, I've gotten rid of Vector as it caused more problems than the ones it solved. As to why Vector doesn't give you any results for 'VABB' could be because the elevation for that area is controlled by something else (just a guess).

 

I don't have the slightest clue on how Vector search works but I'd recommend trying the fix I linked earlier and if it doesn't then I guess your best bet would be to open up a thread on ORBX forums and wait for someone more knowledgeable to track the issue for you. Either ways, the solution in the other thread worked for me and didn't work for others so you can try it and see for yourself. :)
