Thanks Andre for trying to help. I'm on FSX. There's no [CameraDefinition.201] in my Cameras.cfg file. All I see is

 

g and changed clipmode=normal in [CameraDefinition.201] but still no luck. This only happens in some new sceneries. I have about 100 add-ons and they all work. It's just a few new airports where the ground flicker or flash. Those are no longer on my computer.

 

This one is staying with the flickering. :smile:

 

Sorry I forgot lol, FSX and EZDOK will make entries in the aircraft cfg file to be precise... Well it was worth to try and solved the issues here local ;-)

No problem. I'm going to do a video with my camera just to show what is going on. Maybe the developer will look into this ASAP.

Hi everyone! I know that this is actually a thread for P3D users, but since also FSX users seem to discuss their problems with the Salzburg scenery here, let me throw in my two pennies worth:

 

I'm using FSX as well and while Evgeny Baturin has done a splendid visual job designing the Salzburg scenery, I must say that I'm a little disappointed by the (probably avoidable) technical flaws the scenery has. I'm particularly disappointed because I was tempted by the very positive reviews given by users of the scenery on SimMarket - and therefore expected a rather flawless scenery.

 

First of all, it has already been mentioned that GSX causes problems with the scenery. At night time, whenever I want to use GSX around my airplane in Salzburg, all taxiway and runway lights go out. This seems to be a conflict with SODE, and FSDreamTeam (the makers of GSX) are already aware of that problem and plan a GSX update that should fix this: http://www.fsdreamteam.com/forum/index.php?topic=13016.new

 

Secondly, I can't even use GSX for very long. The program crashes and tells me to install the latest standalone add-on manager. I did that, and still I get those crashes. So, due to the use of SODE, GSX doesn't seem to work at all currently at Salzburg Airport. And that is particularly disappointing, bearing in mind that GSX is a very popular add-on - so Mr. Baturin and his testers should have thoroughly tested beforehand whether it works with the scenery.

 

Thirdly, the AFCAD seems to be faulty. When I request taxi clearance from Salzburg Ground, it only tells me the parking position or active runway but not via which taxiways I get there. Additionally, when I asked GSX to provide a follow-me car after my landing on RWY33 in Salzburg (strangely enough, GSX didn't crash while I taxied behind the follow-me car) in order to find my parking position, the follow-me car suddenly veered off taxiway L, drove across the grass and right through the hangars and fuel tanks at the north end of the General Aviation apron. And then it vanished. So I was left alone, without any taxi route, without any follow-me car, and was happy to find my way to the parking position nevertheless - and then GSX crashed when I tried to deboard my passengers.

 

Fourthly, I don't even know how I can contact Mr. Baturin in order to inform him about the errors. He doesn't seem to have a website and the manual provided with the LOWS scenery is only two pages long and doesn't contain the slightest contact information for official support.

 

So can anyone confirm having the same problems - and can anyone tell me how I reach Mr. Baturin?

 

If all those problems are fixed, Salzburg will sure be the fine scenery that it looks like already. But until then, I must say that I'm not very fond of using that scenery as long as I can't even find my parking position without the help of maps and I can't deboard my passengers and containers.

New update is out with SODE v 1.3.

 

Let's see how long it's going to take Aerosoft devs to update their sceneries to support SODE 1.3.

i only have DD EPWA so doing this updated version from simmarket is a no go right?

Totally agree SODE is a "will not buy" for me, it's a joke and what for....jet ways, really, sort it out and all the muti entry's it makes.

you really think people developing engines that allow devs to do interesting things that would be otherwise not doable is a joke?

 

Orbx has the same thing, object flow, fsdreamteam and flightbeam have coutall.

It would be great if they let everyone use their engines but that's not going to happen.

 

Sode (how ever silly the name is) will likely become the software of choice for all other scenery developers if you want *native* wind driven windsocks, textured lights that only come on at night, animations such as hanger doors that open as you get closer to them or by control, objects that switch texture depending on weather or time of the year, and Te best most accurate jetways since AES.

 

i have great respect for Jeffery who is developing this for free while also being an airline pilot.

 

This reply got a little longer than I intended, please don't take offence :)

Hi,

 

by default, after installation of LOWS(which directed to D: p3dv3/simmarket) i also have a b12pilot/SODE folder in c programdata.

The SODE installation itself at the end of the LOWS installation i directed inside my p3dv3 folder where it is now.

 

My question, can i move the SODE folder from programdata to my P3dv3 folder where the other SODE folder is, and "merge" them?

 

And one more btw, where should the p3dv3 exe.xml and dll.xml be located?? I have these both in programdata/LM... as well as in appdata/roaming/LM... . My UT2 entries for example sit in the ones at appdata/roaming/LM... But SODE installed its entries in the ones at programdata/LM... ??

 

Thanks,

Simon

You can try but I would delete it in sim scenery library first then re-activate it again after you moved it - you will have to find it again in library to route it - if it doesnt work no biggie reverse what you did

I now moved/merged the SODE folder from programdata to the SODE folder in p3dv3 root folder. Also deleted one of two SODE entries in simobjects.cfg. LOWS still seems to work alright.

 

And i think the exe.xml and dll.xml in appdata/roaming which i was talking about in my above post have been created by the migration tool. I just copied the UT2 entries from there to the exe.xml in programdata, but then when starting p3d the red UT2 warning came back and UT2 didn't work. By deleting the UT2 entries again (so they are only in the exe.xml in appdata/roaming) UT2 works again with no warning.

Sorry, completely off topic... :Shame On You:

Might be me but where is the Gates at LOWS? Because i dont seem to have any. Guess SODE might be the problem?

For me too, SODE is a joke and i don't buy software with SODE!

I hope Digital Design makes a update for his Salzburg scenery without SODE.

So, what is exactly your problem with SODE?

I installed LOWS and have no trouble at all.

No problem with SODE 1.3 here at all. Even the old SODE 1.2 airports "work", but obviously their jetways will not move until the develpers update their sceneries. DD with LOWS was quick with the update and it works flawlessly.

 

I would not change the default installation locations of SODE 1.3 as all the other SODE 1.3 airports will install in the SODE program data as well.
