  1. Hi i have installed P3dV4 updates recently and installed all my other scenerys from ORBX and UK2000 etc. However when i loaded in with vegatation on my screen was full of trees and grass randomly everywhere. Even when i moved views it would bug out and show trees and bushes and grass everyhwere in the camera view. I turned off the vegatation and it stopped but now it looks like a flat ladn with just buildings! I have reinstalled everything!!! and that didnt work either ad turned off some other addons and still nothing 😞 Can someone help as the sim looks naked without the vegataion:(

  3. Hi All: Thought some of you might be interested in a discovery I made today on loading times for FSX from a cold boot to the 'Free Flight' screen. I recently upgraded to an SSD for my OS (Windows 7) and FSX. I, however, have several hundred GB of scenery data that won't begin to fit on the SSD so I have it still installed on a hard drive. But with the rest of FSX and W7 on the SSD I expected to see a significant improvement in FSX startup times. I did not. Maybe 30 secs at the most (3 mins before, about 2.5 mins after). Why? The only data not on the SSD is the scenery data. That must be what is still slowing my startup times. I tried some things. As a first test, I substituted the default scenery.cfg file from back when FSX was installed for my current one, expecting a big difference in startup times: No! Barely any difference! FSX was still reading lots of scenery before the 'Free Fligh't Screen would appear. Next I tried an empty 'Addon Scenery' folder (moved my current one outside of FSX and replaced it with an empty one, just like FSX newly installed). Some improvement but still slow (2:22). I have lots of scenery installed in the FSX folders, not just in the 'Addon Scenery' folder. So next I moved all those folders (only my payware/freeware folders, not any of the default folders) outside of the FSX folder structure and retested from a cold start: Big improvement! Startup time a mere 0:20!! So it appears FSX scans all the folders within the FSX file structure for scenery on startup, even when there is no corresponding entry in the scenery.cfg file. So next I put back my scenery.cfg file, but modified it with the new locations of all my scenery folders outside of the FSX main folder. This was very easy to do, just needed to add a "..\" in front of each local= entry for folders that were moved. Shut down the computer, waited a minute or so then restarted. My new boot time, with my 'normal' scenery active: 0:35!! A full 2 minutes quicker than before. I will add that the load times from pressing 'Fly Now' until the cockpit appears, ready for flight, do not change with this technique. So if you normally fly with most of your scenery active this method will not help you. But for me, with hundreds of GB of scenery data, and only a small portion of it active at any one time, it made a very welcome difference. Almost as good as a brand new installation! The only scenery folder I cannot move in this fashion is Orbx. That has to stay where it is. FTX have not provided a way to move it elsewhere. I have 68GB of data in that folder (linked to a hard drive folder). It is costing me 10 seconds in startup time! I could move that 68GB to my SSD but that would nearly fill it. If anyone knows a way to move it so FSX doesn't scan it on startup I would love to know! David CYXE
  4. Because it has been "asked" here and there: Let me try to quantify the differences (and where I write HD Mesh, there UHD Mesh would apply equally - generally speaking). And with the XP11 default Global Scenery I mean the one replaced with public beta one (later this might change). HD Mesh Scenery v3: older data (approximately 2 years old) - XP11 default: newer OSM data (August 2016) XP11 default has updated landclass data for many regions (compared to HD Mesh Scenery v3) HD Mesh Scenery v3: older autogen placement algorithms and no special European roads during scenery generation (XP11 default has a slight edge here - at least urbanized areas might look better) HD Mesh Scenery v3 has much higher resolution Mesh (this has NOT been changed in XP11 default do to scenery size constraints!) HD Mesh Scenery v3 has much more accurate landclass representation (even if its based on older data as described above) because of its higher res mesh (landclass is bound to mesh triangles) HD Mesh Scenery v3 has older (because of older OSM data) but more accurate coastlines (rivers, lakes, ocean) as XP11 default needed to simplify vectors ... again because of scenery size constraints. So, in the long run (especially to iron out the first 3 "disadvantages") I will possibly release a HD Mesh Scenery v4 (and likely some similar update to UHD Mesh). But this will not happen anytime soon ... especially as I also wait for some further planned improvements in the scenery generator from Laminar (like including building height data, which has NOT been included in this first scenery released by Laminar with the public beta ... yes, I can confirm this information as I discussed it with Ben Supnik). I would also like to - again - point to my post about general Mesh Scenery informations (what exactly is in those DSF files) to clarify it further: http://www.avsim.com/topic/498605-mesh-in-x-plane-has-extra-features/?p=3516077Info and statement is also posted on my website (for others to reference): http://www.alpilotx.net/2016/11/07/statement-about-the-compatibility-with-x-plane-11/
  5. Hi guys i'm having problems with my TNCA scenery in P3Dv3 the terminal building isn't showing up can anyone help?
  6. Hi all, I'm pretty new here and couldn't find the right place to post my post, so here is some screenshots from the scenery I'm working on Tashkent for P3D and FSX before I start you can visit my project page and get download link http://ftxdes.blogspot.com winter texture for the region and also night texture
  7. Hey. Does anyone have suggestions on how to reduce or remove the hard edge squares I am getting? An example of this can be seen in the snow colored square in this image: I would expect that the edges would be more blended with the surrounding tiles and so am suspecting something in my configuration file. Thanks -david-
  8. Hi all ! Today I flew the Epic E1000 by Aerobask. http://epicaircraft.com/aircraft Happy flying ! B)
  9. Hi All, I am experiencing a fairly large number of square daylight textures when flying at night on P3DV4.3. I have come across a few topics where others are having the same or similar issues, but their issues seem to be arising from Orbx scenery conflicts. However I haven't got any Orbx products installed. I have only ever touched Orbx to install the free Iceland demo, but have since un-installed this product. Any help would be greatly appreciated. https://www.dropbox.com/home?preview=2018-12-18_21-7-55-913.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/ay758h2rrs886cn/2018-12-18_21-3-50-739.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/home?preview=2018-12-18_21-3-54-88.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/home?preview=2018-12-18_21-7-59-447.jpg Regards, Archie.
  10. I am in the process of updating the Bahamas scenery. I just posted a scenery pack: bahamas_scenery_pack_1.zip for download. https://library.avsim.net/search.php?SearchTerm=bahamas&CatID=p3dscen&Go=Search This is replacement scenery is for northern Bahamas: Grand Bahama, Abaco, Bimini, and the Berry Islands, plus the Turks and Caicos. This pack includes updated vector, land class, water class, static objects, and all airports for these region. All airports are now accurately located and updated. This is a huge improvement over the default scenery. I plan to release three more scenery packs that will cover all of the Bahamas as time allows. Enjoy! Also any talented airport/scenery developers interested in helping out in this project, feel free to contact me - gregory.goodwin1@gmail.com Links to screenshots below: Abaco: Abaco Island: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1lxjsQwWc7FGqiUepl71wWJVka-m6haYV Marsh Harbour airport: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1SWj2L8VZk0PbZ8hGEiQxvz3UncrHEid2 Spanish Cay airport: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1EH8A4MBa8RyldMT4-pS4ddKXZ7Fy84dS Walker's Cay: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hsxlXmqY7JQVtd1kOwqdAG3vZzpONznz Grand Bahama Freeport harbor: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zWER78HO38y_BjUHxofuwC7cJ09DBh1x grand bahama: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1jkmStNBHh2BqiyUCNOF-A5lk5TfSj8Yc West End airport: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ogEUzOMJSZZz5zyLMzv8CmQ3DzokegQw Bimini: N and S Bimini islands: https://drive.google.com/open?id=14hMz097Bs92KfHyAZ_BkMNF50rhi5K8k Cat Cay: https://drive.google.com/open?id=11S6aJ65p9e0vR8tKlGPCbdanYztCothe Berry Islands: Great Harbour Approach: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WoHzsMk-OXiEcWbrweOnv5I_5NkU5LiB Great harbour Cay: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mOxbwZMmxo36gmC-4LS-ID2gGlBWnE7- S Berry Islands: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ZkAOPjrOn6xAjDe7ga1N5cmf0ryrf5Es Turks and Caicos Grand Turk: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hj6qQrctCjoch7q8Th4t043FapfAp1tk Ambergris Cay: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hZnqF3UWwQEEcWEjqnWVZGbwR9rnVpBd Close up MBAC: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Tf7gnclC2llTNAXoFCdPU8bdmeTqnxLg South Caicos: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1v7NmkIEV1bhXRygjmnk56Vdt2r-Y5Hck N and Mid Caicos: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1JkTeHxAMlrjP3V4gUiqH02Yr_9Rd-zo_
  11. Dedicated to all FSX enthusiasts in Steel City. A preview video of upcoming release of Pittsburgh VFR for FSX:
  12. After migrating to P3Dv4.1, I started do add some sceneries that does not have a installer using the "Add-ons" method, like modern companies (A2A, FSDT, Flightbeam) are doing. In that way, I don't need to copy effects files to the sim folder, keeping the installation folders cleaner. But after adding about 15 sceneries this way, I noticed some collateral effect. Some GSX vehicles loose their textures and even some aircraft like A2A and PMDG stoped to load their textures (and became black). Removing all the sceneries xml from the add-ons directory, makes everything comes back to normal. Now, I'd like to know how you guys are doing. What's the best way to add manually installed sceneries? 1. Use the modern way, through Add-ons folder and xml 2. Use the old way, through Scenery Library
  13. Imaginesim's Austin Bergstrom Intl for Prepar3D v4 has been released. The scenery has had a full overhaul for the latest version of Lockheed Martin's simulator and the developer claims new optimatisations mean that performance will be "more than doubled" compared to the FSX version and increased "over 25%" over previous editions of P3D. Users will also benefit from switchable dynamic lighting, interactive SODE jetways and improved autogen coverage. The update is available free to existing KAUS FSX and P3D customers.
  14. Sim-Wings' La Palma scenery has been released for Prepar3D version 4. The latest in Sim-Wings' Canary Islands series to get the P3Dv4 treatment, La Palma is the most north-westerly of the Canary Islands. With a population of around 85,000, La Palma's main claim to fame is as the home of a number of leading astronomical observatories sited on its highest peak, the Roque de los Muchachos. The climate and location of the island means any cloud generally forms below the 2,423m (7,949ft) summit, leaving clear skies for stargazers. Europe's second-largest optical telescope, the 4.2m (165in) William Herschel telescope, is amongst those sited on the mountain. La Palma Airport, on the island's east coast, is equipped with a 2,200m (7,218ft) main runway and handled around 1.3m passengers last year. Although the airport is mainly served by inter-island services which operate year-round, during the summer holiday season larger aircraft operated by the likes of easyJet and TUI bring tourists from further afield. Sim-wings' rendition includes a detailed 3D model of the airport, including optimised 3D runway lighting, dynamic vehicles and Aircraft Parking and Information System (APIS). Full details of the release can be found on the Sim-wings Facebook page.
  15. Evening everyone, ever since I got OPENLC for NA, I'm getting these very weird looking immersion ruining tiles that have day textures during night flying, I tried force migrating and uninstalling OPENLC NA, but to no avail please suggest me some solutions, it has ruined night flying for me...
  16. Release of UHD Mesh Scenery v4 for X-Plane 11 UHD Mesh Scenery v4 can be seen as a vastly improved version of the default scenery shipping with XP11. It is using/referencing the exact same set of artwork files (textures, object, autogens, forests) which ship with XP11, so you do not need other art assets to be installed while UHD Mesh Scenery v4 will also benefit from any artwork improvements (autogen, texture) coming with future XP11 versions. General Characteristics of UHD Mesh Scenery v4 are identical to those of HD Mesh Scenery v4 (you can read those on its own page). The advantages of UHD Mesh Scenery v4 are: Uses 30m DEM data (instead of 90m DEMs)! Landclass data for some areas (USA West, Europe Alps, Europe Pyrenees, Japan, New Zealand) was re-created with very high resolution (compared to the data used in HD Mesh Scenery v4) resulting in even better landclass representation. The triangle mesh resolution a lot higher than in HD Mesh Scenery v4: this give - obviously - even better representation of the 30m DEM data (slopes, mountains etc.) BUT this also vastly(!) improves the landclass data representation (which in X-Plane is very closely coupled with the triangle size in the mesh). This is most obvious with forest detail. OSM data is updated (its "date stamp" is 10th January 2018) . Which makes it newer than the data in UHD Mesh Scenery v4. Coverage New Zealand Japan Europe - Pyrenees Europe - Alps Europe - Scandinavia USA - West (3 files, 1/2/3) Canada - West (3 files, 1/2/3) Important Warnings! The scenery requires at least X-Plane 11.00 !!! IT WILL NOT WORK WITH X-Plane 10.xx! 32 GBytes of RAM are highly recommended (64 GBytes are optimal)! Some areas might work with 16 GBytes of RAM too, but there it is very likely you will quickly run into some OOM issues! Official Site All other (continuously updated) information, download links and important instructions can be found on the official UHD Mesh Scenery v4 Site: http://www.alpilotx.net/downloads/x-plane-11-uhd-mesh-scenery-v4/ Please read the instructions carefully, as not following them might result in a broken installation! Screenshots Here are the official screenshots accompanying the release of UHD Mesh Scenery v4. Just follow the links to my Google Photos albums: UHD Mesh Scenery v4 (for X-Plane 11) Have Fun!
  17. i just installed the OrbX open LC North America, i've been having trouble with it. Its not loading all the way and the area around the airports look really messed up and blocky. At LAX, half of the airport was in the ocean. http://imgur.com/be2YDgl http://imgur.com/cHBshvm , i would really love to fix this.
  18. I seem to have messed something up and not entirely sure how. I installed Avast to do some cleaning and this occurred. https://s19.postimg....y1f/fsx_top.jpg,https://s19.postimg....y1f/fsx_top.jpg. I have since uninstalled Avast and is unable to undo what was done, if it in fact caused the problem. Its the only problem I have so far in FSX and don't know how to resolve it. Perhaps someone here with knowledge knows which file is missing and how to replace it. I'm running FSX Accelerator on Win7 64. At this point I rather not reinstall since its the only issue I'm having. FSX functions just fine. Thanks in advance.
  19. Hi all, I have two ORBX sceneries - North and South Island of New Zealand when I do a flight from the North to the South I come into land and the scenery is even worse than default. It's like it takes ages to load all the details and textures so i flew around the City I was landing in for approx 5 minutes and it started to load. Does this load time come down to the components of the PC I'm running or is it something within ORBX. Having said that, I've just forced migration and updated my ORBX libraries as FTX has said to do. Will let you know that this problem was happening before I did the recommended install and force migration FTX has just released. Thanks in advance Jordan
  20. I'm looking for good freeware KSAN Scenery for FS2004 if anyone knows of any. Thanks.
  21. hey guys, Can someone help me with my VTBS scenery? first, i am experiencing some glitch whenever i taxi to the gate, pretend into F5, when i reach at T14, it becomes bumpy and i can see some sort of soil coming out from the wheel of my a320. Also, the taxi lights are missing. I tried contacting the developer and it is asking me to update the scenery via simmarket. The problem is that i cant see any updates in simmarket. Cheers, Francis
