Stornoway EGPO Scenery

Recommended Posts

Why does the default scenery in Xplane 11.30 present EGPO as if it was in the middle of a sandy desert?

Even with Orbx TE GB North it remains the same and spoils the otherwise great imagery of flying there.

Please advise what plans are there to improve this situation?

Thanks - Chipmunkman

I see what you mean. You could try to improve it with WED by changing the ground polygon. Gateway airports are community driven, everybody is free to contribute.

I checked in googlemaps, and it appears dry there.

Here's a shot of Stornoway in GB North using Xvision (Renault's preset) and UWXP.

Thanks Olderndirt and Soaring_penguin.

I will try the tweaks you suggest Olderndirt. I have been reading your helpful comments with interest elsewhere about Orbx TE North 

Many thanks - Chipmunkman

If you're born Scottish, you're always Scottish no matter what.

Hi Olderndirt,

 

Yep - born Scottish and live in the north west Highlands.  Stornoway is our nearest town as the crow (or sea eagle) flies, but about 20 miles across the waters of The Minch.

Thanks for your interest and help.

I was born a 'Lowlander' in Edinburgh but have always felt that the heart of Scotland is in the Highlands and Islands.  'Course I'm a Yank now but you never forget.

How did you get it without the sandy airport texture? I just installed TE North and still have a crappy aiport texture at EGPO. Is there a way to fix this?

have you checked your graphics settings? After updating XP recently and when loading up the scenery I noticed the RWY, markings etc were all gone. Until I turned up the graphics setting wich had been set to default by the XP update without me noticing. And suddenly everything was back to normal :)

Well first off, I was thinking of, and refering to Orbx's EGPB, my fault and I appologize :D

Secondly I'm not seeing EGPO in your scenery.ini file, do you have a custom scenery installed or is it the default scenery that is out of whack?

In this case I have no idea because it's fine on my end.

Maybe posting a screenshot would help, sometimes a picture explains more than a thousand words?
