Default TNCM Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I fired up P3D tonight to have a go at some circuits around St Maarten and found that the ground texture seems to be bleeding through the taxiway texture. I have tried the scenery library and changing settings to no avail. I have no addon scenery installed in this region, with the exception of FTX Global.

 

See here:

Since the search bar seems to have disappeared temporarily (one hopes), I was unable to see if this had been posted before.

 

Regards to all.

Search for the TNCM-related files in the FTX Global subdirectory and rename their extensions to BAK.  There should only be two of them, one of which is a BGL.  I had to do this with UK2000's scenery, since I had the same issue including buildings from both default and UK2000 occupying the same places.  After renaming them, I also had to make sure that the entries for the add-on airports sat above ORBX scenery in the scenery config, which can easily be adjusted via FTX Central 2, under troubleshooting.  In essence, you are disabling ORBX from loading their scenery at those specific areas in favor of the add-on's scenery.

Thank you for your advice Jim.

 

Unfortunately, I'm not able to actually find any ORBX entries referring to TNCM in the directory. I'm beginning to wonder whether this is an issue with something other than the ORBX entries.

 

How frustrating indeed.

There is a default try disable that entry

It turns out that this can be repeated with others' default 2.4 installs, so it is not an issue on my part which is a relief.

 

I think a visit to FlyTampa's abode may be necessary.

  You have to open the scenery afcad (BGL) in a utility such as Airport Design Editor (ADE), by Scruffy Duck, and edit the apron areas, to "draw surface" Then recompile the scenery into a BGL, and save it in the "P3D/Addon Scenery/Scenery" folder of P3D. I have had this issue with several airports in P3D. It's an easy fix.

I hated the default TNCM from the start. No main terminal, unrealistic taxiway layout (missing a connecting taxiway), unless this was an older layout. Sticking to FlyTampa.
