Where am i supposed to get zOrtho4XP_+36-116 from?

Post by mikie46 » Fri Dec 25, 2020 3:03 pm

I installed Flytampa LV and i downloaded the optional Ortho file from the x-plane store however im stuck on step 3.

3. Copy the whole textures folder from your zOrtho4XP_+36-116 folder into Flytampa_LasVegas_3_Mesh_o4xp_USA2 folder

Where is the zOrtho4XP_+36-116 folder? It certainly was not installed as part of the install process nor do i find it in the optional download, Flytampa_LasVegas_3_Mesh_o4xp_USA2.

If i try to download FlyTampa_KLAS_V1.0_XP.7z i get a popup box asking to login. I dont get it!

Why cant you supply the folder as part of the origional ZIP instead of making life difficult?

We are not allowed to supply ortho tiles in our products.
You would only be having zOrtho4XP_+36-116 folder, if you are using Ortho4XP, and have installed the relevant tiles corresponding to these coordinates.

I did not ask you to supply OrthoXP. I have it already. I asked you to tell me where to get zOrtho4xp_+36-116. Is it on their website?

Also, the mountains around Las Vegas have Blue/White splits in the mountains/terrain. I can see it from the airport from the Tower level and when i fly.
What is the cause of this?

The last time i saw this i was running P3D and not a single person could tell me why this is happening. Now i see it in Xplane. In the end i had to reinstall P3D.

Is this related to Flytampa? I dont see it when other scenery is loaded.

The zOrtho4XP_+36-116 folder should be located in your XPlane\Custom Scenery folder, only if you download the relevant tile/s with Ortho4XP software. Our tool uses the folders downloaded with Ortho4XP to produce the patch that covers the area. But again, it requires the user to know how to use Ortho4XP and how to download the relevant tiles of interest. If you have not downloaded any tiles for the area of Las Vegas, then you do not need to. This is only optional for users who are currently using Ortho4XP, and specifically the area corresponding to Vegas.

The log.txt you posted is a series of logs from XPlane while reading your directory files/folders. From what I can see from your other thread, Las Vegas loads without issues in XPlane. I also do not see any errors on the log.txt, but only some minor warnings. If you do not get errors from XPlane in-game, then the log you have uploaded does not have anything to comment on.

This issue is YEARS OLD and no resolution.

Please provide the exact screenshots (there are only 2 duh!) for ORTHO4XP v1.30 so we can see what options need to be entered & selected to create the tiles you talk about in your readme.txt located in the Flytampa_LasVegas_3_Mesh_o4xp_USA2 archive.

Dont assume that everyone running XPLANE 11 has a good grasp of Ortho4xp!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your instructions are vague. You state, recompile the tile using USA2 source and zoomlevel 17. Fine, then what? What other options need to be selected from that screen before i click on BATCH BUILD? For example, the options are; Assemble Vector Data, Triangulate 3d mesh, Draw Water Marks, Build Imagery DSF, Extract overlays, read per tile cfg? Which of these need a checkmark????????? Please provide a screenshot, there are only two screens in Ortho4xp that need to be populated.

There is a video on YT on how to do this but its missing the Ortho4xp settings. All he talks about is replacing the nav data folder with one of 4 or 5 versions, bing, usa, etc.
BTW where are ALL THE VERSIONS of the files his talking about? why is it that i can only use USA2? Where is Bing, Google versions? In my xplane store account you've linked 4 versions all of them are USA2, HUH????? The guy in the video shows 5 versions of the same directory???? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNZqp19mgCc

2) Why did FlyTampa decide to remove the earth.wed from the latest distribution? The last time i downloaded the .exe file it failed to install earth.wed. Why is that?

I for one want to update and fix all the issues with parking definitions, static aircrafts and the SLOPPY ground routes you guys put out. Its really UNACCEPTABLE for 2022 and for being PAYWARE. I still have a problem though, your dsf files. When i try to load it up to remove your STATIC RUBBISH i get an error about the DSF editor cannot read the file.

HOWABOUT providing a dsf version of the file without static aircrafts OR a dsf file that does not load WITH ERRORS? Is that too much to ask? Howabout providing an update to wed xml? You know, fixing the parking definitions that are YEARS OLD, updating the airlines that can park there so W3T can function properly, fixing the SLOPPY ground routes, fixing the misc errors that appear during validation etc etc etc.

Come on Flytampa WAKE UP and fix the damn scenery, update it or give refunds!!!!!!!!

I want to remove static aircrafts please. Please fix the dsf and make it available.
Why should we have to import the DSF into WED then try to export it to fix this?

And when i EDIT the DSF and save it, the next time i load up xplane i get floating objects. Why? All i did was remove 5 static aircrafts.
And before you start accusing me of my scenery order .... err its correct :(
