P3D V5 elevation issue

Hello lately across some airports such as in Kingston Jamaica and Guam I have been experiencing some very abnormal elevation issues which seem to be unique to P3D V5. I have vector installed as well. I have provided images to the looks of the problem and below I will include pictures of the scenery order. Thanks and I hope someone helps me.

Have you used the config tool for Vector (I'm assuming you mean Orbx Vector)?

Vector changes the elevation for certain airports and if you have addons installed that aren't compatible you will need to add excemptions so that Vector does not apply the elevation corrections. The Vector Config (accessible via Orbx Central) should have a scan feature which will add excemptions automatically for addon scenery that isn't compatible - it's also worth re-running every time you install new scenery.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Martin

Maybe I’m missing something but I don’t think this feature is available in the v5 version of vector

That may be the case, in which case I won't be able to help as I'm still on v4. I would still double-check though as the screenshots strike me as being very similar to what I faced when I installed an addon that wasn't compatible with Vector's elevation corrections without adding any excemptions.

Since moving to v5 I have never used Vector, and I don`t care what they say in the ORBX forum I never allow anything to install below Randolph AB at the top of the base Scenery Folders and have never had a problem since.

PS if you use a third party mesh scenery product then that can cause a problem with Vector.

I don't use Vector with v5 either.  

I'd suggest disabling Vector and see if each error still occurs at those spots.

V5 has corrected many airport altitudes. So they are different compared with V4.x and FSX. If you use scenery made for earlier versions, the scenery needs to be adapted to V5. With ADE you can change airport altitudes to stock altitudes. Unfortunately flatten.bgl files must be made from scratch because you can't decompile them.
