No water effects on Addon Airports!

Recommended Posts

Hiya

 

I have what seems to be a weird issue

 

None of my paid for addon airports have water effects on the ground yet all my default ones do.

 

I thought it would be the priority of each scenery, but that does not seem to be it after mucking about with it

 

I have:

Aerosoft Corfu (LGKR)

Aerosoft Innsbruck (LOWI)

 

The weirdest one is my UK2000 Gatwick latest version which looks like it is trying to show water but all it is is swirly textures.

 

Is this right or should I be getting water effects on these airports?

 

Thanks

 

Paul

First guess would be the scenery complexity slider in the FSX scenery menu.  Scenery objects are set to show with the complexity slider at or above a set level.  If the slider is below the set level, the objects will not be displayed.

Do you know what that level is as I have them all on quite high?

 

Thanks for your help

Not all add on airports have wet ground effects due to the materials they may have used to render the ground textures. No amount of slider complexity adjustments will over come a design.

The scenery complexity slider doesn't control effects like water on the runways, it only controls the buildings to be displayed.

 

The one slider that might affect it would be the special effects slider, but even that I don't think controls water on runways, aprons, or taxiways from either appearing or not.

 

If the product says it does wet ground from rain and it's not working then you may need to contact the developer.
