Correct install path for ES Isle of Man scenery to FSX SE

Recommended Posts

Rick,

First image looks like a good structure for the Channel Isles, second doesnt mean a lot sorry. Its the content within the ES folder. are the folders I listed above all in there? have you activated all the scenery folders? K

Hi Kevin

 

Which ES folder are you referring to? I created that Earth Simulations folder to drop everything in there.

 

If on the other hand you are referring to the ES-3D folder, that has a scenery and texture sub-folders.

 

My Channel Isles and Scilly Isles look nothing like your layout order. Maybe that's where all this is falling down. How can I install this is the ES Installer cannot link to their defunct server?

 

I have no yet activated anything in the FSX-SE Scenery Library. Just heading that way now.

 

Here's my Scenery.cfg

Sorry my bad, I tend to use ES to mean shorthand for Earth Simulations because I'm a lazy typist :P So ES meant the 'Earth Simulations' folder that was highlighted in the image you posted. :)

 

When you've activated all the relevant folders as I listed in the previous posts, then let's take it from there...

I'm now floundering. I installed everything that could be added to the FSX-SE Scenery Library, and activated them, and de-activated every other add-on scenery right down to the default sceneries. Let the Scenery Library rebuild, and tried out  Guernsey. It looked a complete bgl mess. It looked nothing like this. Where the taxiway is to the right of that sign D1, was a deep chasm. I knew instantly it was not correct.

I have no idea where to go from here.

Rick,

 

Have you added all of those entries to the Scenery Library for ES-CI (Channel Isles) and ES-IOS (Isles of Scilly), as per Kevin's instructions? You will not see anything at all if you don't. You also need entries for ES-3D and ES-SFX (mine are above all of the other entries for ES software).

I'm amazed Kevin where you manage to elicit such links.

 

Okay, ran it as instructed to the line.

 

Here's what shows up

And here's my Scenery Library entry for Guernsey:

Rick,

 

Post #12 and Post #24 (both by Kevin) indicate all of the entries that you should have in your Scenery Library menu. If you do not have these, then you will need to manually add them. Or are you saying that you can't get the full contents of each DVD installed on your PC? If so, is there no way of manually extracting the folders from the DVDs without using the ESI software?

I have no ES DVDs, as I made my purchases with them online, which I saved to a separate drive.

 

Okay, will have a look at Kevin's posts #12 and #24 and see if I can make sense of it all. I'm beginning to get a tad frustrated that I made a purchase for a series of Add-ons, albeit without the pre-knowledge that ES would go belly-up, and now, cannot quite get it installed like all my Scenery add-ons bought much before that, seamlessly into FSX-SE.

 

Hopefully, with yours and Kevin's aid, I can eventually get there.

Phew, at last, thanks to Christopher and Kevin, I've got to where I want with the Earth Simulations add-ons. But still have a minor issue with St Mary's.

Glad to hear you're getting there :) Is that pic above of St Marys though? (difficult to tell on an iphone but rather looks more like IOM to me? (forgive my eyesight if I'm wrong!)

 

Well I pointed the scenery library to ES Isle of Man and they are showing up correctly in the scenery library. 3 ticks I believe.

But there is strange behaviour during the load, taking ages, springing back to desktop, blank screen. Eventually it loads and the main Airport (Douglas I think) is all fine and crisp. However, I get a bad case of the blurries when flying in my CH47, so nothing fast. I do not have this with any other scenery at all.VFR GenX Scotland South is underwater. Gutted. Really fed up now.

ES IOM requires more than just 3 ticks in the scenery library, refer to the post in this thread where I listed all the required folders in the correct order :)

 

There are fixes for GenX issues available through http://www.arm-computers.co.uk/Photo_Scenery/FSX_Patches/fsx_patches.html , but you may be able to solve your particular issue simply by ensuring the GenX scotland scenery library entry is above your ES-IOM ones...

That screenshot is Isle of Man Ronaldsway, but I can see that there is a LOT of autogen missing in the background. If I am correct, the town of Castleton is in the distance, but that screenshot makes it look very sparse. What scenery and autogen complexity settings are you using, Rick?

Chris, I had a similar issue to that in the puc when I manually i stalled IOM at first. IIRC ir was just that I didnt have the ES-3D folder active, or that I didnt have the textures referenced correctly. Either way it was easily resolved :) K

Yes, I am wondering whether he has the ES-3D and ES-SFX folders installed and/or the Scenery Library entries activated.

Kevin & Christopher

 

Are these the ES-3Ds you are referring to. And yes, Christopher got it spot-on, it was Ronaldsway, IoM

 

Check these:

 

Channel Isles

 

CI-3D.jpg

 

IOM

 

IOM3D.jpg

 

 

Scilly Isles

IOS-3D.jpg

 

 

Or is it this which I've just added to the Scenery Library

 

ES-3D.jpg


Does this Douglas, IoM, look better now I've added that ES-3D?

But still an issue with St Marys

Check to see if you have the St Marys elevation modification file in your scenery/world/scenery folder Rick, and do you have any other sceneries installed which could be impacting there? K

Rick,

 

You will need to disable the ORBx FTX version of EGHE St Mary's if you have FTX England installed. As for the Isle of Man screenshot, that looks better. Do you have a superbly detailed Castleton to the south west of the airport? Oh, and the ES-3D entry that you added to the Scenery Library menu is correct, but you also need to add the ES-SFX folder entry.

 

With respect to the mesh, you have told me that you do not have the ES-IOS-LM folder? That is strange. Kevin....am I right in thinking that this includes the terrain mesh for the Isles of Scilly? It is 269MB, and really should be included in Rick's download version. That may be why he is having serious terrain elevation problems.

 

EDIT: Is this conversation also helping you, slip-stream?

Good call Chris, I don't use FTX-England so that was something that passed me by :)

No Chris, AFAIK the ES-IOS-LM folder contains the night lighting layer for the photoscenery. The folder ES-IOS-Terrain contains the terrain mesh. :)

Okay, have disabled Orbx's FTX EU:England, but still see this for St Marys and Guernsey

And I have hunted high and low for that missing LM folder. No joy.

 

Jersey is okay, so is Alderney. And the IoM looks good too. But I'm scratching my head if IoM looked good with Orbx's FTX EU: was enabled, why the issues with St Marys and Guernsey? And I've just tested IoM and it still looks okay.

ORBx FTX England does not include the Isle of Man, so that is probably the reason. Can I ask this again......have you added the two ALT files to your World/Scenery folder? In addition, your terrain textures in both areas look rather blurry to me, but I need to see them from a slightly elevated position to know for sure. Oh, and you seem to have a default tower at EGHE St Mary's, so something still isn't right in that department.

Well, I really do not know where to go next with this. Orbx FTX EU:England disabled; those two ALT 'fixes' by Kevin installed; and all the ES files in the Scenery Library that should be there, but still have this with Guernsey:

You seem to have a default tower at EGJB Guernsey aswell as one at EGHE St Mary's, so it seems that (at least some) of the default scenery is not being excluded. What scenery and autogen complexity settings are you using? There are missing buildings and other objects in your Guernsey screenshot. Sorry for asking this again, but can you confirm that those two ALT files have been added to your World/Scenery folder? I think we need to see the contents of some of the ES Guernsey folders.
