Hey Guys, i've been following this thread and today I decided to take the plunge and get this KLAS scenery.

The airport scenery is excellent, I really like it, but i'm experiencing a very strange graphics anomaly. Many of the roadways in the vicinity of the airport appear to be grass covered, and some even look like they are covered with water.

FWIW, i'm not seeing this with any of my other add on airport scenery's, and I have a bunch of them, including several FlyTampa scenery's. I know for sure this is confined to the FlyTampa KLAS scenery because when I uninstalled it the problem disappeared. I'm running P3D v4.5 with ORBX FTX Global, NA Land Class, and Vector.

I'm at a complete loss to figure out what would cause this, or how to possibly correct it, so I would greatly appreciate any ideas or suggestions.....

Damm, there goes the easy fix. Do you have KLAS above All Orbx LC etc? I feel you have but just trying to help. Your screenshot are odd as some seem right and other spots are not.

Did you set the right season/month in Flytampers config? Today I set mine to May.

Yes, I have KLAS above all ORBX. 

I have the FT configurator set to May, although it was initially set to August, changing it made no difference.

The really odd thing is, as you noted, some areas seem right, and other spots are not, and it seems that it is mostly confined to an area immediately surrounding the airport environs... Weird... I'm all for a green planet, but this is ridiculous....🤣

I appreciate the suggestions David, there are no bad suggestions, only the ones you don't try...😎

Agreed.

This clearly doesn't seem to be a widespread issue or it would have been reported by now.

Thanks again.

I have 3 suggestions.

  1. Verify that the Flytampa libraries are installed correctly. (Use Lorby or verify in the scenery library / Add-Ons menus)
  2. Try running the FTX Central migration tool (Looks similar to when my terrain.cfg got messed up - I had a few random, incorrect textures).
  3. Double, triple, etc. check to verify that you didn't miss any of the 4 Orbx files that you need to rename add the ".off" extension 2 - To be clear, you need to rename 4 Orbx files, and ALSO disable KLAS in the Orbx Vector elevation config.  

In P3D\Orbx\FTX_NA\FTX_NA_SCA05_SCENERY\scenery\ rename:

ADE_FTX_SCA_KLAS.bgl

ADE_FTX_SCA_KLAS_CVX.bgl

FTX_SCA_objects_KLAS_PLC.bgl

In P3D\scenery\world\scenery rename:

ADE_FTX_SCA_KLAS_elevation_adjustment.BGL

I'm currently running FTX Global, OpenLC NA, and Flytampa KLAS without issues. However, with ORBX offering 50% off their items for the month of May, I was looking at picking up Southern California Region. Are these files associated with SoCal or just vector (I don't run Vector)?

Those files listed above are all part of FTX SCA.

Thanks for the suggestions..

1) The FT libraries and KLAS are installed above all ORBX entries. 

2) I ran the migration tool, it made no difference, the green areas still persist.

3) I don't have ORBX SCA installed, so those files do not exist on my system. I have KLAS disabled in Vector AEC.

I have 4 other FlyTampa scenery's installed... Copenhagen, Tampa, Dubai, and Vienna, and none of these exhibit any such problems.

These green patches and roadways seem to be confined to a (relatively) small area just to the south of the airport. Note that whole parking lots in the pic below appear to be grass covered. I've flown a 360 degree course around the airport area, and i'm not seeing this anomaly anywhere else. I'll try getting some answers at the FlyTampa support forums today.

I've done all of these things and still have problems. I'm about to give up. I've just run out of patience. I'll go back and look at it again in a few weeks. I've never had so many problems with a scenery package.

So i am starting to download MCEv3 Nevada (8,80m/s) so it takes about 2 hours. I have a none SSD harddrive in which i am downloading it to as i have a problem with space on my main windows C drive. I have 110GB left here and it might be that i sometimes under heavy load is getting an OOM . MAybe there is not room enough pagefile for P3Dv4 ?

Anyway my new concern is the heavy size Photoreal scenerys and was wonderingif its okay to have them on a seperate drive (not SSD) ?

Benefits or slow loading textures ?

Thanks

I run almost all my photoscenery on a large traditional disk (with P3D on an SSD) and it works fine.

WOW NEVADA MCEv3 😂 Why have i not bin seeing this before know. And why is my performance much worse now around KLAS ?

Should i disable something ? Even FTX SCA is better at KLAS with Flytampa. 

Otherwise its amazing in IFR

Thanks

Check out Nuvecta landscapes.  I found it superior to RWS.

Would like to say a quick thanks for this suggestion.  I don't recall ever seeing these before, but at $6/state thought it was worth at least trying one.  Picked up Colorado and so far I'm pretty pleased.  Will probably get them for all of my MSE states.

Hey Scott,

I am seeing exactly the same thing that you are in the same location - I didn't even realize I had the problem until I saw your post.

For what ever reason, I am unable to register over at the FT forums, so I was unable to report this in the thread that you started.

Only difference I see between my setup and yours is that I use UTX2 NA instead of Vector.

Please report back if you figure it out. I will do the same.

Thanks,

Dave

No problem Dave, will definitely let you know if I find a solution...

I guess I can take some solace in knowing i'm not the only person experiencing this odd anomaly...

Are you running P3D v4.5...??

I was pretty pleased as well.  It is a little lacking in some areas but it does populate the photo scenery quite well.  The Real World Scenery autogen I tried was horrible, but they are currently making photo scenery called ultra VFR that looks interesting.  Sounds like they plan to do the entire USA.

I have one of the pieces that covers Buffalo, since I have FT's KBUF. I think it's very well done! If they'd release additional parts covering areas that I have airports for, I would certainly buy more pieces. However, besides KBUF none of the other packages that release din this series has covered anything particularly interesting to me...
