SODE VDGS missing in V2.2

Post by PLund » Wed May 06, 2020 2:36 pm

Hi Emilios,
I just tried installing V2.2 and noticed the SODE VDGS is missing.
The FlyTampa Libraries are active and SODE VDGS is installed.

When I go in the configuration manager and ticks SODE VDGS, start P3D and load EKCH the VDGS is missing. When I then go back into the configuration manager after exiting P3D the tick is off on both SODE VDGS and FT VDGS.

Hope you can help.

Best regards

Hi Peter,
There might be a file confict on your SODE folder.

For active SODE VDGS you need the following files named as shown


This should re-active the option on the configurator and make SODE VDGS visible

Hi Emilios

P3D\FlyTampa\Copenhagen\scenery\ is shown as off
C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\xml\FlyTampa_EKCH_VDGS.xml was shown as off, but is changed to .xml along with Windsocks which I also had ticked as SODE.

I just checked in P3D and the VDGS is now shown.

Thank you for the help.

Best regards

Same issue here with a clean install of v2.2 and indeed changing .off to .xml works.

Same here and just to let the developers know that even after changing the .off to .xml in the SODE folder, the FT configurator still does not recognize the commands to change VGDS and windsocks between standard and SODE.
I noticed that the relevant files are being changed from bgl to off in the FT folder but there is NO effect on the VGDS and Windsocks files in the SODE folder (they can only be renamed manually and are not controlled by the FT configurator even when in sync with the FT scenery folder files).

As far as I remember everything was working on the previous version of EKCH so must be something in the latest update, or latest SODE 1.7.0

Kind regards,

All this seems related to an invalid configuration file, config_FT_EKCH.xml in \FlyTampa\scripts folder.
Here what I found out in mine.

The _v4 at the end of each xml/off entry does not make any sense, simply correct those entries removing the _v4 to have the FT configurator working.
The same applies to the Animated Windsocks, even in that section (at the top of the mentioned xml file) there were reduntant _v4 strings appended.
