Forkboy Ortho - Missing section or processing/install issue?

Recommended Posts

Any users out there have Forkboy's "New England" ortho scenery package installed? I was wondering if you could take a look at a certain area to see if my install got borked somehow, or if my problem is in fact inherent to the scenery files.

If you have this scenery, could you fire up a quick flight out of KFSO to see if you're looking at default textures, or orthophoto scenery?

I'm getting default even though it should be within the coverage area. Slightly to the east of that airport I do see ortho, so I think I'm in the ballpark. I'm not sure if it's missing in the package itself, or if the processing work needed to convert JPG to DDS somehow went flakey in that area. I'm not getting any error messages if that's relevant.

Thanks for checking - I appreciate it.

DISREGARD this request for help.

I've just reviewed the coverage map for the ortho scenery, and low and behold the area I am interest in is in fact NOT included in the package. This would explain why I can't see it in the sim. I assumed that it would have been in there based on the name of the scenery, but for one reason or another, it was omitted. (Maybe there's no good source data)

It's unfortunate, but at least I now see that it's not just me having an installation issue.

Thanks,

-Greg
