Try turning on missing texture alert in fsx.cfg to see if that is the cause.  You can do that via the fsx.cfg editor from the dx10 controller top menu or search through the fixer manual for better instructions

I have done that. No error message and the bmp.2 file is in the effects folder if you ask!

In the effects folder there is one orbx fx file called

 

fx_orbx_KSTS_white_approach.fx

 

May this is the problem?

After setting this file to OFF for a test. There is no approach light anymore but also no squares. So this file make some troubles. How can i solve this?

Go into the debug dialog from top menu in controller.  Try changing the alpha test setting high which is about 4 rows down to full and see if that helps.

ORBX's airports are good, but far from perfect. I recently bought Redding Muni KRDD airport and to my surprise in P3Dv4.3 you cannot start your flights from a GA parking spot, but only from a gate, otherwise all the airport buildings will not show.

In addition to that annoying feature, in all cases the aircraft when parked, are not sitting on the ground, but elevated some feet above, also at the runways.

To my surprise too, ORBX knows all that very well, but have done nothing  to correct these issues.

Best advice: before buying any ORBX product, go first to their forums and read all the customer's comments and eventual complaints in advance.

Cheers, Ed

You right. I have also a lot ORBX products! This is the only airfield with light problems in dx10 because of their own lightfile i guess, which is not dedected by the fixer. I have also KRDD. I will check your problem!

May I jump in. I remember that there is a texture file "fx_2_orbx_KSTS.bmp" misplaced in the Effects folder.

Please go into the FSX/Effects folder and shift (or copy and paste) this file into the FSX/Effects/texture folder. This should hopefully do the trick.

For some reason the approach light effect that max has for KSTS refers to a light texture bitmap from PAHO.   Max can you check if that texture is in fact included with KSTS but in the wrong place that Wulfbindewald suggested

Hi Ed,

Yep - been an issue for me for a very long time - it's easily recreated - I've posted multiple requests in their appropriate support forum - I even PM'd the developer of the airport directly - no response - no fix ever offered - thanks for the gumball Mickey - LOL...

Regards,
Scott

Guys, this is a DX10 Scenery Fixer support forum thread about a specific problem at KSTS in FSX DX10 preview mode not KRDD in P3D - the fixer doesn't run in P3D.

Here again and FSX DX10+fixer related.

I checked the relevant "fx_Orbx_KSTS_white_approach.fx" file in the Effects folder. There is a further mistake included in this file, because the relevant designated texture is called "Texture=fx_2_orbx_PAHO.bmp"

and not ...KSTS.bmp. I guess the developer has forgotten to replace the content from another adopted and existing ORBX scenery.

To make it quite simple: Please copy the existing "fx_2_orbx_KSTS.bmp" file 1:1 again into the Effects/texture folder and rename this one "fx_2_orbx_PAHO.bmp".

Please let us know if this cured the prob.

(The alternative is to carefully rename all entries  ..PAHO.. to ..KSTS.. within the  "fx_Orbx_KSTS_white_approach.fx" file. I do not recommend this proc).

 

This has been already discussed in the ORBX forum (in 2015), but unfortunately there is no KSTS airport scenery update.

To sum this up.  Max reported the issue to Orbx and they will release an update next month.

@wulf thanks for your help yet again - I have told Max to try your workaround whilst waiting for the update.

Excellent - so the solution for anyone finding this thread is to locate Max's thread on the FTX support forum and download the missing  "Homer" bmp or wait for the  update.

the thread is here btw
