Default scenery showing up beneath photoscenery

Recommended Posts

P3D 4.2 I'm using photo scenery and mesh. The sims default scenery shorelines are showing up beneath and around the photo scenerys own shorelines instead of being masked giving two shorelines, the P3D default shoreline and the Photo scenery shoreline. The scenery is old now and initially for FSX, but as I recall, this happened when I used it in FSX as well (sadly I cannot remember how I fixed it). I have looked into this on the internet but found little to no information. It's Horizons Scotland North photo scenery. Worked in earlier versions of P3D, maybe a 64bit issue. Tried moving layers up and down. I have also tried various mesh software titles that I own and even the freemesh project.

Thanx.

P3dV4 is not up to version P3DV4.3.  Maybe that will fix it.  Usually there is an elevation bgl in the world/scenery/world folder that messes things up.

Photo scenery requires an exclude to prevent default coastlines appearing.

Either the file(s) are missing or do not work in P3D v4.

I would think it most likely that they are missing.

There is absolutely no connection between any files in the scenery\world\scenery folder and default coastlines not being excluded.

My mistake I have version 4.3. The folder structure was giving P3D the problems. I added the vector folder and everything looks the way it should. P3D doesn't allow me to add the main folder with sub folders.

Now my pc is pausing intermittently whilst flying. Hardware issue. Dodgy PSU. Oh the joys 😉
