Saltholm island flickering

Post by rondon9897 » Sun Nov 09, 2014 4:11 pm

Hi guys,

This is an absolutely beautiful addon airport and I'm loving it. I have a problem with the island on the apporach to 22L/R, which I think is called Saltholm. It is flickering in a very strange way and spoiling the experience. Can something be done about it? Or perhaps a way to disable it?

Hi John,

Well; This is no help, I know.
But i have the problem with Saltholm aswell. Just as described in your screens.

The rest of EKCH scenery is breathtaking, to say the least!


I am using FSX btw.

It's interesting Lars. Another problem I'm having is this weird sort of light patch that follows the aircraft on the runway on landing. Do you think they're related?

Is this problem always there? does it disappear instantly, or ?
And you see this only at this area?

Also, I see some underlying image coming through, have you got FSDG Oresund, or some other photoscenery installed which might also cover Saltholm?

I used FSDG Oresund for a while, but uninstalled it. BUT... I seem to remember having same issue with that.
The flickering Saltholm, that is.

The problem is allways there, in my case. And in this area only.

I am using FTX Global and Vector. And nothing else.

And I am sorry to answer the questions given to John:-)

No problem Lars. I have never used aerosoft oresund and also have ftx global and vector like Lars. And like Lars, it's like it all of the time

hmm..that's odd. I was about to say, to check the FSX scenery library and remove all entries from Oresund bridge (in case there were any left). This flickering only at Saltholm is strange.

Could you please quickly check the size of a_Oresund_Saltholm.bgl file?
(located in Addon Scenery\FlyTampa-Copenhagen\scenery)

stupid question: FlyTampa-Copenhagen (and _LC) at the top of FSX scen.library?

Yes they are at the top and the file is 22651 KB

Size appears ok.
I cannot see what else might interfere and cause those 'black tiles'. You could always try re-installing Copenhagen although I m pretty sure something else, previously installed, is causing the conflict.

You can always temporarily disable if you like by renaming
a_Oresund_Saltholm.bgl to *.off

Let me know how it is after disabling this file.

I checked for remains of FSDG Oresund, and found none.

But, and this properly means nothing, when I slew my airplane up and down above Saltholm, the odd textures shows around 33oo feet and disappears below that height.

So, if I do a low fly by in the Cessna above the island, it looks pretty good!

Hi
It looks like this problem is connected with settings of FSX Water effects. Try to disable water effects or put on low.

Or maybe the scenery entry is not on top?

Hello to all as well. I have the same problem with the scenery but not flickering at all. If the scenery file "a_Oresund_Saltholm.bgl" changes to Off extension the Island disappears. FSX Water is not interfering with that Island. I tested FSX with frame rate 30 and Infinite too. It looks like the weird "square" changes the position on the Island terrain.

Any thoughts you guys?

Uploaded here a screenshot showing no Island after changed scenery "a_Oresund_Saltholm.bgl" to Off. It can be edited the BGL file or it can be changing from FSX scenery settings something? Any ideas?

Changed scenery file "a_Oresund_Saltholm.bgl" to Off and the Island is gone.
