Madeira X Evolution v1.05a bugs

48 posts in this topic

Glad v1.05a is out but I want to share some issues I am having with the scenery.

 

First here is my basic setup description: Win 10 x64 + Prepar3D v3.4.22.19868 + FTX Global BASE Pack + FTX Global VECTOR + FTX Global openLC Europe + FTX Global openLC North America + FS Global 2010 FTX Edition+ Aerosoft Madeira X evolution v1.05a + FSDreamTeam GSX.

 

Issue 1: After launching Prepar3D v3 and starting a flight at LPMA at dusk/night the runway and taxi lights will display correctly. However if I start a flight let's say at LPPS when I arrive at LPMA the taxiway and runway lights are extremely dim. In order to restore the lights I need to close Prepar3D and relaunch it and then start a new flight at LPMA.

 

Check the following YouTube video (it's not edited sorry for that):

 

Issue 2: It's an old one actually. If you start a flight out of Porto Santo (LPPS), no matter what, one will not have windmills. In order to display the windmills you need to first load your flight at LPMA (Madeira) and then switch back to Porto Santo (LPPS).

 

Issue 3: It's another old one. There are some important islets flat (no elevation). e.g. "Ilhéu da Fonte da Areia" Islet  and "Ponta de São Lourenço" islet.

 

Issue 4: Yet another old one. Lack of working lighthouses at Madeira and Porto Santo.

 

Issue 5: Old one as well but not that important... LPMA airport name is incorrect. The actual name is Madeira Airport - Cristiano Ronaldo.

 

Please check this thread for further info regarding Issues 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Regards,

Luís

Not sure if I am having the desired results! Can you please some screenshots of the added mesh? Thanks in advance.

 

Here are mine:

It's disappointing that issue 2 It's an old one actually. If you start a flight out of Porto Santo (LPPS), no matter what, one will not have windmills. In order to display the windmills you need to first load your flight at LPMA (Madeira) and then switch back to Porto Santo (LPPS).

is back in v1.05a, as we both reported that for v1.04 in this post:

I will check the Issues 1,2,4 and 5 tomorrow.

The runwaylights are a normal Object, but it is possible that the P3D V3 has in issue with the Z Buffering against the special ground. I hope, i can reproduce it.

I have the same results. SRTM does not offer more. I know that reality does look different.

Thanks for the support! This is the most advanced Madeira scenery for flight simulator ever. And Issues 2, 3 partially (Ponta de São Lourenço was ok but Ilhéu da fonte da Areia was flat) and 4 worked with the previous Madeira scenery. It would be great if you could make this to work with Evolution.

Indeed quite different (thanks for your effort and contribute though)... If the developer could take care of issue 3 also that would be very nice. :rolleyes: Both are important landmarks for approaches on the respective airports.

The problem is, that there is no quality data available. Maybe the new 10m mesh from Airbus or Intermap, but that is expensive.

To receive proper visuals, you have to edit the data by hand with a GIS tool, or make a 3D model. But that is something that maybe an other forum member (are there any GIS or 3D experts?) or @MK-Studios can do. That's far out of my skills.

Fixes for Maderia EVO Version 1.05a
------------------------------------

You need to have Aerosoft Maderia EVO in Version 1.05a installed, before you use this fixes!

 

The Fix in the Sub-Directories are only for the FS Version you see in the Foldername:

FSX-FSX-SE Only: Only use for Mircosoft FSX or Davetail FSX:SE (Steamedition)
P3D V3 Only: Only use for Lockheed Martin P3D Version V3.4.x
P3D V4 Only: Only use for Lockheed Martin P3D Version V4 Hotfix 1

Don't install the Fixes in the wrong FS Version, the files are not the same.

 

The Structure below the FS Version is simular to how the Installer creates the Products,
so you should be able to the files to the related Subdirectories and replace the original once.

 

Following changes are done:

 

Only in P3D Version 3.x:
- Runwaylights now working, if fly into the Airport from outside (like LPPS) - it's Issue 1
  (FSX or P3D V4 not effected from this issue)


For all Version:

- Windmills in Maderia and Porto Santo seperated, so they are shown, when Flight starts there - it's Issue 2

- Lighthouses in Maderia and Porto Santo get's Custom Objects from previous Maderia X Version and Flashlights now - it's Issue 4
- Airportname in Afcad changed to "Madeira Airport - Cristiano Ronaldo" - it's Issue 5
- Afcad of LPPS in all Versions compiled with FSX SDK, otherwise maybe tool reading the Afcad not work korrect (like GSX or AFX)

 

Your Issue 3 (Mesh) is not my part and could not be done better, without other Meshsource as discussed. So no issue.

 

Please give me sasp a feedback, if this fix it, then I can send them to Aerosoft to add this fixes to the Installer 1.05a

Hi Oliver, great service. I will release two more fixes (mesh and cvx) today or tomorrow. If it's ok, they can also be implemented into 1.06.

Hello, I release some more fixes. This is an all in one of my fixes. Please delete the files from my post there, if you installed them:

Now the new fixes (they should adress issue 3, but with limitations as discussed):

fixed coastline issues
    - added Ilhéu de Fora (Porto Santo)

    - added Baixa do Meio (Porto Santo)

    - added Baixa dos Barbeiros (Porto Santo)

    - reworked beach from Cabeco Da Ponta to Vila Baleira (Porto Santo) issue 7
    - reworked Ilhéu da Fonte da Areia (Porto Santo)

    - reworked Ilhéu do Farol (Madeira)
fixed mesh issues
    - reworked Ilhéu da Fonte da Areia (Porto Santo) --> now with correct hight

    - reworked Baixa do Meio (Porto Santo) --> now with correct hight

    - reworked Ilhéu de Fora (Porto Santo) --> now with correct hight


 updated waterclass (optional)
 updated landclass

 

One file of the original install will be replaced. So make a backup of the CVX_MADEIRA.BGL

If you don't like the new waterclass, just disable the WC_4320.bgl

 

Mesh and CVX fixes v3.rar

 

v3 does not include mesh for Ilheu do Farol.

The best solution would be, if @MK-Studios provide the missing mesh in one file with madeira island.

 

 

Please, give some feedback.

 

@OPabst If all is fine, you can send them to aerosoft.

Top notch customer support!

 

Regarding issue 3. The previous Madeira X scenario (http://www.aerosoft.com/en/fsxp3d/flight-simulator-x/sceneries/1673/scenery-madeira) had proper mesh data for Ponta de São Lourenço (lhéu da Fonte da Areia (LPPS) was missing though). Is it possible to use the Ponta de São Lourenço Mesh data from the previous version and use it into Evolution? Just asking... ;)

@OPabst If all is fine, you can send them to aerosoft. I will test your fixes tommorow.

 

Update:

There is a problem with the meshfile for

   Ilhéu de Fora (Porta Santo)
   Ilhéu do Farol (Madeira)

I provide tommorow a update.

 

Will wait for the update then. Thanks for sharing!

Issue 1 (v3.x related): is fixed!

 

Issue 2: is fixed!

 

Issue 3: After the fix it got worst! And I am clueless on why since I am not using any third party mesh or mesh fix with the exception of FS Global 2010 FTX Edition. Please check my previous reply regarding the old Madeira scenery (Madeira X).

 

Issue 4: is fixed!

 

Issue 5: not fixed! Since you have mentioned a fix about the AFCAD (glad you fixed I guess... B)) maybe we are not talking about the same thing. Here is what I was saying about the wrong name.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

New Issues

 

Issue 6: There is a weird printed truck texture on the LPMA slope side to the runway. An old one actually... and was reported in the past on other forum topic.

596eaa0fdeb02_LPMAslopeTruck.thumb.jpg.7ec6a3a1f1ce3a91f75f7b7dc899fd20.jpg

 

Issue 7: Porto Santo land triangle just off the beach and weird water triangle. Both nonexistent in real live.

LPPS.thumb.jpg.52e5342b5f512df2ac1beaf166e18318.jpg

 

Issue 8: LPPS disappearing runway texture.

Hi as said, I'm investigating issue 3. 

Issue 6 is a truck in the photoreal of the slope.

Issue 7 could be a waterbody error and one error in the ("cut") in the photoreal.

It would be great if the old mesh and custom lighthouse could be integrated. But that is something @MK-Studios have to clear with aerosoft (@Mathijs Kok).

But is it hard to fix Issue 6? Issue 7 could be more difficult to track... But I am just guessing. The water triangle I already had but the land triangle is new as a result of the fix.

I'll wait for Dev feedback regarding issue 8. Are you experiencing the same?

Hi, give me more info about the location for issue 7. I will check this evening.

For issue 6 you have to edit lpma004.dds with photoshop.

I have just replace the the ZIP file in the previous post:

- Now the Lighthouses gets the custom Objects back from Maderia X build by Peter Werlitz

- All Lighthouse gets small flattens below at the altitude the Mesh has (or should have), so the effects better get the position.

- The Name of the Airport is now correct displayed, as the FS will read the name in the ALT file of the Airport in the scenery\world\scenery folder and not of the Addon Afcad itself.

 

And please keep the discussion about the Meshfixes from Masterhawk seperate for the disussion about my Fixes.

I have edited lpma004.dds successfully and I am free of that annoying truck. Thanks for pointing me the file. Issue 6 is fixed! I don't know if I am allowed to share the edited file due to copyright or other legal issues. If I can I will post the edited file. It is working, at least,  with PreparD v3.

 

Truck is no more. ;)
