Re: Satellite image over airport.

Yeah... should have just done the plain install instead of trying to get cute with the xml. It looks really good now. Note to self: keep it simple (stupid)...

Worked for Dubai though, go figure.

I have a new base for a while!

Re: Satellite image over airport.

I'm having a go at a 'plain' into the sim install. Will let you know how that goes.

Re: Satellite image over airport.

HI Emilios Sorry, been off on other projects... I've installed EHAM via an XML: -<SimBase.Document ID="add-on" Version="4,0" Type="AddOnXml"> <AddOn.Name>FlyTampa - EHAM</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>FlyTampa Amsterdam</AddOn.Description> -<AddOn.Component> <Category>Scenery</Category> <Path>P:\Pr...

Re: Satellite image over airport.

I'm at a bit of a loss on this one. So I did some more experimenting, in case it helps. These show progressive loading of the satellite imagery which I'm pretty certain isn't supposed to be there: Empty ramp, apart from the AI model: https://i.imgur.com/x3v0pXV.jpg Getting lower, loading satellite i...

Re: Satellite image over airport.

Hi As an experiment, I switch the ground bgls to turn on snow. No snow... https://i.imgur.com/rPFC1wI.jpg And it appears there are indeed elevation issues... just none that affect me: https://i.imgur.com/ktI71QC.jpg A floating taxiing plane https://i.imgur.com/8OpE5Di.jpg One floating airliner at a ...

Re: Satellite image over airport.

Hi Emilios

Yes, there are two files:
eham_ground.bgl & eham_ground_snow.off

Obviously, it's not showing up in the P3D configurator, so presumably if I wanted to switch to snow, I'd have to do that manually (which is no biggie until you've got season switching sorted).

Re: Satellite image over airport.

Hi Had a play around with AFX_EHAM_flytampa_dummy.bgl location. Anywhere other than: P:\Program Files\FlyTampa\scenery\world\scenery caused elevation issues, so it's not that. This is the file location referenced in the addon.xml. I guess that makes sense though, since that's the only place it's loo...

Magical

Folks I was taxiing LH423 from one of the E gates to depart on 33L, following my AI namesake on a winter's dusk. The light was perfect, the rain showers came and went, the visibility wasn't fantastic. But the surroundings were. I've got rid of some of the ancillary eye candy to protect the performan...

Satellite image over airport.

Hi All I have a minor issue with AMS. There is a satellite image sitting on top of the airport. AMS sits above the LC entry in the scenery order. The only other EHAM.bgl file is an orbx one, without which I get elevation issues. Open LC and Vector are installed, but not Netherlands. https://i.imgur....

Re: TNCM continues with issues on my P3Dv4.2

Thanks Martin, sorry to jump in, the missing BGLs were my issue. Just copied across from FSX and now all good on the elevation front. Just need to get the effects folder recognised by the XML and I'm done. :)

Thanks. Does this mean I need to add another xml completely just for the libraries, and remove it from this xml? I need you to elaborate a bit. :)

Nearly there in V4

Folks I've installed TNCM with my add-ons outside of V4. I've cobbled together the following XML: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> -<SimBase.Document id="add-on" version="4,0" Type="AddOnXml"> <AddOn.Name>FlyTampa - TNCM</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>FlyTampa St Maarten</AddOn.Description> -...
