Bouncy ground at WSSS

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am using P3D v.3 and ImagineSim's scenery for WSSS. I have the update from FSX to P3D, but I think there is something missing in the AFCAD. The taxiways and runways are like rolling on dirt. The plane bounces a lot. Is there an AFCAD that I could download to fix this issue? 

 

Many thanks 🙂

Sounds like you need a flatten file.  You can create a flatten by using a utility like Airport Design Editor

You can try setting the mesh resolution to 10m. See if that helps.

You should also check if you have conflicting sceneries at WSSS and if the priority in your Scenery file is corect.

From what you are experiencing I think that you see only the overlayed custom ground polygons on the ground (like foto of a runway but without the supporting tarmac below). That's why you see the dirt like effects while you taxi. I bet you have to push your throttles a bit more to even get moving...

How do I do that? I am missing the SDK-files and am unable to export files the program.

You are absolutely correct in your description. How can this be solved?

1. For duplicate entries: There is a free tool called Simple Airport Scanner. It will check if you have conflicting AFCAD files.

2. For checking priority in your scenery: Launch P3D and start a flight. Go to menu "World" -> "Scenery Library". All your custom airports must be on the top of the list followed by whatever things you have installed. Search for WSSS and move it all the way to the top.

These 2 checks should fix almost all your issues.

I don't think that the scenery developer forgot the AFCAD's but if they are not on top of your list, you might load a default AFCAD file wit overlaying textures of the WSSS scenery.

3. If it still isn't fixed please try reinstalling the scenery.

 

Regards,

Gerald
