I’m very disappointed at how St Maarten Juliana Airport is rendering terrain elevations issues in almost in every area.
The worst thing is that I haven’t been able to find the solutions in forums or other places to fix the condition. I have also tried different configurations within the scenery.cfg with negative results.
I’m running P3Dv4 with FTX Global Vector. The AEC does not seem to correct this elevation issue at all.
Can anyone help fix this problem?
Many Thanks,
George

I have fixed it.

If you go to your scenery files there might be St Marteen Missing (the flytampa one not defult). theres a flytampa folder but no st Marteen folder. All you have to do then is make a new scenery file and divert it to yur st marteen file ( Prepar3D v4/ Flytampa/StMarteen

that should fix it,

After some investigations, I found the solution that worked for me:

C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\ORBX\FTX_VECTOR\FTX_VECTOR_FixedAPT

or wherever you have yours installed, and delete the file ABP_TFFJ.bgl

that should fix it...

Oops, in you case it may be the TNCM file... I was only having problems with TFFJ

Hello,

Always organize your scenery as follows, and you shouldn't encounter any issues...

scenery libraries (e.g. FlyTampa, 29Palms / other than ORBX)
airport sceneries
city and POI sceneries (e.g. landmarks)
area sceneries (e.g. Aerosoft’s Night Environment)
fotosceneries
Addon Scenery
FTXAA_ORBXLIBS
FTXAA_YSCH
FTX_AA_xxx (ORBX Airports – several entries)
FTX_EU_xxx (scenerie europejskie – several entries)
… (FTX NA, FTX AU)
ORBX!OPENLC_EUROPEx (openLC Europe – several entries)
ORBX!OPENLC_NAMERICAx (openLC for Northern America – several entries)
ORBX!OPENLC_BASE (openLC base)
other landclass add-ons (e.g. Scenery Tech – Africa)
FreeMeshX-xxx (FreeMeshX folders or any other mesh you use – several entries)
Edwards_AFB
Berlin
… (all named FSX sceneries)
Asia
Africa
ORBX!VECTOR_OBJ
ORBX!VECTOR_APT
ORBX!VECTOR_CVX
ORBX!VECTOR_EXX
1107 Base
… (all numbered FSX sceneries)
0000 Base
ORBX!VECTOR_AEC
Default Scenery
Default Terrain
(optional / deselected!) FS9 World Scenery

Special credit to the original poster of this somewhere on AVSIM, but it's been too long ago to remember where I found it. I hope this helps you get everything sorted!

Oh, and don't forget, if you have Orbx, to change the Orbx Library Insertion Points correctly after you install new add-on scenery.
