Error, could not locate image file for terrain

Post by jfwharton » Sun Sep 06, 2020 5:31 pm

I just purchased and installed Fly Tampa KLAS for XP11. I get the following error when the Flytampa_LasVegas_3_Mesh_o4xp_USA2 is used

Error, could not locate image file for terrain
Custom Scenery/Flytampa_LasVegas_3_Mesh_o4xp_USA2/terrain/51008_23296_USA217.ter
Custom Scenery/Flytampa_LasVegas_3_Mesh_o4xp_USA2/terrain/textures/51008_23296_USA217.dds

I can see the first file listed in the folder but the second file is not a correct location so there is something wrong with this archive file. Is there a way to download an updated file or fix this issue?

There were three listings for this archive file in the download for this scenery in my X Plane Org Store account. I tried all three and get the same error with each. So something is definitely messed up inside this archive file.

I reread the readme for the patch file and discovered that I'm supposed to copy files from one of my ortho folders. I use Forkboy's orthos for the US and there is no textures folder in the Nevada folder so I am at a loss as to what files to copy.

I finally decided to stop using the Forkboy's Ortho scenery and went back to the default and added HD and UHD meshes. Now the photo scenery for KLAS matches. So all it good.
