ThaiCreations VABB Approach

Recommended Posts

I've installed ThaiCreations VABB in Prepar3D v4.5 without an issue.  The URL link pic shows the ILS 09 approach at minimums.  My question is, what is in the foreground?  Nothing resembles it on the simmarket web site.  Is it scenery corruption? I have FTX global installed.  I'd appreciate any suggestions--Thanks

Looks like just a blurry satellite photo ground... Not uncommon for old FSX-style sceneries. It seems there are just some buildings missing. Perhaps it requires some custom autogen that haven't been installed properly? Other than that I don't see anything wrong in particular. Did I speak of the thing you say might be wrong, or...?

Yes you did-Thanks-can you elaborate about the "custom autogen"

If you’re okay waiting a little, I can load up this scenery on my sim in a few days and tell you if I see something similar to what you’re seeing. Then I can also see if the scenery did come with tomseort of custom auto gen - autogen that doesn’t not use default assignment, rather uses new ones that have to b e added the sim’s autogen definitions. But I do not remember something like that being necessary, so I’ll confirm it in the next few days or so.

I am fairly certain that you need to export the BGL-files that contain the custom apartment houses with Model Converter X (running on the P3Dv4 SDK  BGLComp) as  P3D v4 BGL to make them visible in P3D. I stumbled across this somewhere when I planned to buy the sceneries. However, I opted against them and so I cannot verify it myself.


Best,

I had a quick look and noticed the same thing, as well as some other airport building missing. I cna't really delve into it much deeper right now as I'm anyway planning to reinstall the sim, but when I find out more I'll post it here

@Benjamin J You said you got a new CPU and didn't see much performance boost, did you return it?

Indeed I did. From what it sounded like, in order to get the full effect I'd better start from scratch, going as far as to reinstall Windows. I'm not planning on doing that anytime soon, so I opted to return the CPU.

Not about the missing buildings but I find there is an anomalous dip in rwy 27 glide path somewhere around 3-4nm from the runway, every time I make an autopilot approach to rwy 27 on any addon aircraft it dips slightly then comes back up again making the approach bit unstable. I disabled the scenery and tried with stock airport and it did the same, so no clue what is happening there.
