Nice shots.  Have actually flown into Bowerman, but never from Friday Harbor.  Went there for lunch but found the Cafe closed.  Nuts.

I like it.  I tried to download the Megascenery Maricopa county demo, but it would not display.  My own photoreal scenery works in P3dV4.  I checked the scenery.cfg and the entry looked good, although I set it to a different drive than my P3D install.  I have my own photoreal scenery installed on a second drive.

I'd like to get Megascenery to enhance my photoreal ventures, but am worried about buying the full product when the demo does not work.  I know you are an expert with their products, any ideas on what might be wrong?

Scenery can not be on the root of the drive so: E:/MegaSceneryEarth/Megascenery Miracopa County. the scenery may be installed on the E: drive but the simulator thinks it's on the C: drive.

The scenery may display if it is moved sbove your own photoreal  scenery in the scenery library!

I moved the scenery, but it does not display.  I tried moving the bgls to my Colorado scenery folder and they still don't display, Colorado does. I've installed FSEarthtiles again, I may just have to generate my own scenery again.  That will be hours of work.  I set up FSEarthtiles and created a small section of scenery, everything worked once I remembered the process.

Can you find the scenery in the scenery library...or does P3D have a scenery library...make a folder Megascenery Miracopa County make sure there is a scenery folder and texture folder inside even if the texture folder is empty

put the bgl files in the scenery folder then go to the scenery library and identify the location.....the folder Megascenery Miracopa County must be recognized by the scenery library to display!

I've moved the scenery everywhere, still won't display  And I had a problem earlier with one of Carenado's products, where the inside textures did not display.  I believe it is the way they rendered their textures that is the problem. If my scenery works, made on the older FSX engine, theirs should work as well.

P3D has a different method of adding new scenery

Create folder and add scenery and texture folders

In the Scenery Library click add area

In the Select Scenery Directory select the folder for the new scenery

In the Scenery Area Text Box type the name you want to see for the scenery

Select Cache this Scenery or Use this Scenery Directly

Click OK

Did that, it worked for my Colorado scenery, not for Megascenery.  I even tried to bunch the demo bgls with my Colorado scenery, since I knew that was recognized by the sim.  Still did not work.

They probably have installers by now!

Their installer did not work.

It placed the files on the hard drive, made the scenery.cfg entry, and put the scenery in the right order.  I think the problem is within the bgl's themselves.  Carenado's aircraft had invisible textures  in the V4 update, they are working on fixing the issue.  I have two planes that work well and are v4 certified.

MSE has a free download Florida Airports it has a P3D installer...you may be able to use this installer on the Miracopa County scenery!

Thanks, I might try that.  Meanwhile I am trying out XP11 which I purchased yesterday.  I want to learn how to use OrthoXP with it, might take some time to learn that.  XP11 has nicer autogen and more realistic looking ground textures to me.  User interface takes more getting used to, I wish there was an easy way to emulate P3d vs. manually reassigning everything.  It would be easier to work with both sims that way.  Maybe I will find something via Google that works.

I like the way the aircraft handle now, more fluid, less on rails feeling than previous versions of Xplane.  I was surprised though that the sim did not have the golden gate bridge by default, just a regular bridge like the Bay Bride. Also the SF buildings aren't the real ones.  I can get over that though, will look for freeware replacements.

Yes...XP11 is perfect for some because of freeware....learn to make scenery and object models!
