What would be the process of uninstalling AEFS2 and the addons?  Most was purchased through Steam.

By the way HiFlyer, I appreciate all your updates keeping us informed.

Uninstalling Steam Games
  1. Click the "Library" tab at the top of the screen.
  2. On the left-hand side of the screen, there will be a listing of all the games tied to your Steam account. Select the game you would like to uninstall.
  3. Right-click the game and select "Delete Local Content..."
  4. A confirmation box will pop up.

Thanks, the reason I wanted to uninstall was due to floating rwys, trees, etc on all airports. Followed your instructions and reinstalled in hoping that would fix the problem; but still have the problem.  IPACS made a few comments but still did not help.

They are still trying to track it down but it seems to be heading towards the idea that people have duplicate or incorrect freebie sceneries in places that are no longer supported. trying moving your addons folder temporarily and see if that helps.

First I really appreciate you and IPACs for tyring to get me back to flying.  Below is something I hope will help. This is what I see on my HD that may give an idea on what I have as to addons scenery etc.

      After reinstall under /C: “documents/aeroflyFS2/addons folders” – there are no aircraft or scenery.

2  Under Scenery folder all folders are blank.

1.       C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Aerofly…/scenery/airports/usa and ch (folders) are “list of airports”  Note under “airports” there are a total of 991.MB plus “3,371 files, 298 folders.  (hope that makes sense)

2.       C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Aerofly…/scenery/places/ch and usa folders include data for cities etc.  (appears normal) usa folders include az,ca,co,fl,nv, and ny  folders.

3.       Xref has 6 folders: aircraft, airport, buildings, ch, generic, and vehicles.

4.       Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator AddOns/scenery/8 Orbx scenery folders

If this is the recent update a week ago from Steam, that is the update that started this mess for me.  Never could figure out how to uninstall it.

On Steam, you need to be on the beta version where you should have seen an update on the 16th

Yes, got it and no problem install and did verify integrity, which was ok but still no change.  I am just about ready to say so long on my PC.  Every airport has this problem with the previous steam update.  Not only the floating airport area, planes etc . All airplanes are still find but float and surrounding area is somewhat washed out.  Just can't figure why even after reinstall steam aerofly.  Have also uninstalled all Orbx scenery which was also floating and washed out runways etc.  I have steam FSX installed and no problem on this PC.  My laptop works fine.

Its strange.

On the ipacs forum you see many thanking them for the update and reporting the issue solved, so at this point I'm not sure what could additionally be wrong.

Your best bet is to go to the forum and submit your TM.log, as during the leadup to this issue, many people reporting problems had serious errors in their installations.

I agree it is very strange.  I have spent days trying to figure out why this has happened especially all airports are impacted. Will give IPACs another chance with the new install with the latest TM.log

Thanks trying to help.

Just to let you know problem was due to an old video card and an old PC. Found a new video driver, which solved most  of the problem.  IPACS were very helpful resolving the problem.
