There should be nothing overlapping if our product is above in the scenery library (which should always be the case in P3Dv4 since our product is installed via add-on.xml).

I do not recommend leaving duplicate afcad files. People should be removing the bgl files for the airports that your addon is installing I recommend doing that for every addon airport you are using that fits in any Orbx region. It has solved oom errors in fsx for me and possible dll crashes also. And I think gsx can get confused often if you have afcad files layered on top of each other.

Just tried to purchase from PC Aviator. Broken download link. Have to wait 24 to 48 hours for even a response. Very PO'd.

Just noticing that autogen seems very sparse and ugly in that KBFI video above. Is that from your settings?

I'm assuming this is directed at PC Aviator and not Drzewiecki?

If you want to uninstall the Demo manually, you also need to remove two lines from the P3D Scenery\World\Scenery folder that the Demo put there.. :happy:

You actually do not as the full version installs the same files. :gaul:

May I suggest adjusting season settings in a future update?  Seattle tends to be evergreen during the winter, and it appears snow-covered using today's date.

Hi. Yes, we can do that but that question is - is that what you really want? :gaul: Winter textures provide more variation to the environment and you can always switch to summer if you wish to. Thanks for the videos!

I was not very impressed either with the autogen in the video above coming in to KBFI. Was that the demo? In fact all these videos dont look all that good to me unlike the pre release images I have seen before.  Could it be the settings he usee or perhaps the demo. Have not purchased yet and these videos did not yell shell out 60 dollars unlike previous images. Made me a bit worried. Will wait fir more reviews and user images/videos

Indeed, you should always check reviews prior to purchasing. Anyway, our product should look exactly as on promo screenshots (depending on sim settings of course - on the screenshots max settings are used).

Awesome scenery. I installed it yesterday (both titles) and flew around the new airports (KPAE, KBFI, KRNT and S 50)  with my piston Duke. Also performance seems to be better than before (ORBX FTX PNW and T2G KSEA are installed and active. Today my ultimate test by landing PMDGs 747 on runways 34L and 34C respectively. I had not expected to get it such smooth and fps friendly. Except some small stutters when approaching the scenery, it was probably my best flight experiences in a congested urban area with all those demanding addons being active.

Awesome scenery!  Just installed and flew around the Seattle area, landing and taking off at all of the airports.  Have Orbx PNW installed and Taxi2Gate Seattle.  Default F22.  I still am awe struck by the scenery detail.  Here's what FSUIPC5 says:

Minimum frame rate was 37.3 fps, Maximum was 158.7 fps
Average frame rate for running time of 805 secs = 76.1 fps
Maximum AI traffic for session was 155 aircraft

Maybe it's because of my i7 7700K, OC'd at 4.5GHz and GTX 1080TI at work with P3DV4.1?  Maybe, but this scenery seems to be very framerate friendly.  Oh, I also installed the 2M rendition of Mt Rainier too.  Did not check it out yet.  Too many other things to check out first.

Best regards,

Jim

Thanks for sharing. I'd have to test on my system to see if I can achieve a steady 30fps. I'd have to disable T2G KSEA. My 2600k can't handle that airport. I'm due for a full OS & P3D v4 re-install.

@DrzewieckiDesign 

Awesome scenery, very well done!

Just one thing, I dont have any SODE jetways at gates 116 and 117 at KPAE, is this a bug? I see the jetways but they cant be used with SODE and GSX doesn't recognise them either

Here's my landing at BFI after a short ferry from RNT.

 

 

I'm sorry but I am not impressed at all by the scenery in this video, like the above user said, it could be because he has the demo/ or low settings, but it doesn't look good, not at all like the screenshots on SimMarket.

One last video depicting a ferry flight from PAE to BFI.  I took a lot of liberties with the route to show the entirety of the city and the airports.  My autogen was set to normal and FPS stayed above 30.  DD has done an amazing job yet again, and I look forward to more!

Is it heavy on the frames?

The airports certainly aren't, don't have the city so I can't say.

Were the pauses the result of the video or in the actual sim?

Are there night textures with the Seattle City?

Greetings All,

Running to a bit of trouble and hoping someone can help me out.

I downloaded the Seattle X Demo and liked it enough to buy the Seattle Airports.
After the uninstall of the demo at start up P3D v4 is continually telling me the demo files are not there and do I want to unload the area. I say yes but it the library entry stays. Issue is the library entry for Seattle Demo is greyed out and I can not delete it.

Steps taken:

- Deleted Seattle demo files from Addon Scenery
- Removed "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Drzewiecki Design\SeattleXDemo" with regedit
- Manually edited Scenery.cfg and Scenery.xml to remove Seattle Demo

Your thoughts?

Cheers,

D-Man

See my post above with the FSUIPC5 log showing FPS while going to downtown Seattle and all of the airports -

.  My p3d.cfg settings are set at max on the first and second page of p3d.

Did you go to Documents/Prepar3D v4 Add-ons and delete the entry there?  I have found that the Addon Organizer does not remove them as I have the old versions still there when I want to update to the latest version.  It was removed from the Addon Organizer though.  Cannot see how that could affect your issue though.

I would also go to MyApps/Roaming/Lockheed Martin/add-ons.xml.  Open with Notepad+++ and remove the entry there if it is there.

I would also delete the facilities, resources, and sceneryindexes_x64 folders in the same location as your scenery.cfg.  They will be rebuilt.

Best regards,

Jim

I am having elevation issues at Renton (KRNT).  Orbx PNW and Taxi2Gate KSEA installed.  SeattleX is located at the top of the scenery.  Here is an image.  Everything is on the right elevation except the wasser (er., the water).  So far, this is the only airport giving me issues.

2017-12-9_12-49-55-393.png

Disabled PNW and their elevation bgl for KRNT in Scenery/World/Scenery = worse

Disabled just the elevation bgl for KRNT in Scenery/World/Scenery = water okay but aircraft sunken

Thanks Jim..
Your suggestions did the trick!

And for everyone else... I have to say installing both the Seattle Airports and the Seattle City scenery is like buying FPS along with great scenery! Fist time ever I flown into Seattle and gotten a up tick in FPS (+10-12 FPS from before install).

Only issue I have is the Ceder River along KRNT is raised as Jim noted above. But otherwise outstanding job Drzewiecki Design. Your use of Ortho and well constructed buildings is the right approach to current flight sim scenery design no doubt! 

Cheers all,
D-Man

Lowering the mesh resolution to 38m resolved that for me.  19m and higher created problems.
