Madeira X Evolution v1.05a bugs

37 posts in this topic

I am now testing v 1.05a with Fixes for Madeira 1-05a.zip (File updated 2017-7-19 2pm Zulu)

 

I run FSX SE.

 

Issue 2 (windmillss at LPPS): fixed

Issue 5: fixed: I have Airport name "Madeira Airport - Cristiano Ronaldo" 

 

Issue 4: partially fixed only: if I start at LPPS at night, the lighthouse near LPPS has a flashlight, but when I fly to Madeira the lighthouse there has no flashlight.

                                                if I start at LPMA at night, the lighthouse near LPMA has a flashlight, but when I fly to LPPS the lighthouse there has no flashlight

 

Issue 6 (Truck): this appeared in v1.04 (I already reported this at the time). I do have it in 1.05a.

 

Issue 7: Porto Santo: I do have the weird water triangle, but I don't have the land triangle just off the beach.

 

Issue 8: LPPS disappearing runway texture: I don't have it.

Thank you for the feedback!

 

Maybe Issues 7 (land triangle) and issue 8 are Prepar3D v3 related?

 

Your problem regarding  issue 4 must be FSX SE related... It is working just fine in Prepar3D v3.

Luís

I would like to say that the lighthouse on the Ilhéu de Cima (Porto Santo) is invisible from the main islannd and it should be on top of the Ilhéu de Cima islet. Maybe due to the mesh it is placed with a wrong elevation.

 

Check this pic:

This is what we have (lighthouse not visible):

Hi Luis,

 

it is nice that you seams to be local and bring your input for this product.

 

But, you forget the base we talking about: It's a flightsim product in a low price level (in relation to the market), addressing the airport of LPMA (LPPS is a free gift as it was part of a previous version). Aerosoft don't be able to provide you a 1:1 original island with all details you habe seen (hopefully) yourself there. The engine (all FS Versions) limits many parts. That effects (like the lighthouseflash) don't follow the mesh below, so that they are not visable sometimes, is such a thing, the developers, Aerosoft or I could not fix.

 

As long as no relevant issues to operate the airport will be reported, the Project will be closed now. 

 

Who wants more details of the island, feel free to contact Aerosoft, they make you an offer for a professional enhanced product. ;)

Hey Oliver, that's true. At some point the project needs to be closed. I will further enhance the cvx and offer it via the forum. But one point should be officially adressed. Since the addon deactivates the default and other mesh addons it would be necessary that the Madeira addon delivers a complete mesh. There is still missing the mesh for Ilhéu do Farol. It is (not)visible during approach to Madeira.

The mesh file is cut off at that point.

It would also be a good idea if the mesh for Madeira could be sampled down to LOD12 instead of 10. In the old madeira x it was done. Even if the source is not as good, it would improve the mesh display with the narrow islands and the roughly coastlines.

support@aerosoft.com is informed.

Issue 4: seems fixed now. I have no idea why it wasn't fully working yesterday.

Before you close this project, here are the bugs I still have in Madeira X Evolution v1.05a (NB: I put the fixes you provided yesterday 19 July): PAPI and 3D lights problems in FSX SE:

- The PAPI lights fade, disappear, reappear during the day...

- During the night, the PAPI lights are OK...

- If, after the night, we select the day, the PAPI lights are buggy again, and the 3D lights at the airport are ON! The 3D lights go off if we get close to them...
- If we end the flight, then start a new flight in Madeira, the 3D lights at the airport remain ON during the day.
- For these 3D lights to be OFF during the day, we need to close then restart FSX SE!

Note: The bug of 3D lights remaining on during the day after the night occurs in both LPMA and LPPS.

 

Watch this video showing the above mentioned bugs: I hope this is helpful     watch in 1440p

But is this scenery ready and trouble-free to be "closed" :rolleyes: ?

 

What "closed" means in therms of flightsim scenery? no more updates?!?

 

PS: or you are talking about LPPS?

Some update of my fixes:

I added a fix for issue 7 (land triangle). The cut in the aerial image is not possible to fix for me. I would need to add a new aerial image. But I don't have a legal source.

Some more things have been changed... check the other post.

I think I have a minimum sufficient base knowledge... That's why, during this topic, I have never demanded anything. As you should surely understand I am no software developer... I don't know not and certainly am not obliged to know if a specific problem/bug is a hard one to fix or solve. IMHO my role as a customer is to provide feedback about the products I have bought in order to fix some of the issues that make them incomplete or not working as it should. In this particular case, the most relevant aspect that needs work is Ponta de São Lourenço and Ihéu do Farol. Almost every approach to LPMA is done over it so a bad representation of this part of the island is a major thumbs down.

 

Other thing I would like to point out is that (personal view) the Madeira X Evolution is seen as an evolution to the Old Madeira X scenery and although it got some really great improvements it's expected that all the great working aspects of the old scenery could be ported down to thew new one. No point on improving some details and "downgrading" others that were working great (e.g. Issue 8: LPPS disappearing runway texture - maybe Prepar3D v3 specific though).

 

Regarding LPPS, MKStudios had, at some point, the intention to release a full LPPS scenery to complement Madeira X Evo. Can you or MKStudios confirm this in anyway?

 

Your 1:1 original island comment was so funny that made me laugh :lol:. Not being sarcastic it really did.

 

Regards,

Luís

Hi Oliver,

 

Could you please look at my post #32 ? I finally had time yesterday to provide evidence with a video.

Earlier in the week I mentioned this without evidence (I was busy), and was told to provide evidence, which is now done. 

 

Am I the only one to have these PAPI lights issues, and the 3D lights remaining on during the day after the night?

 

Thank you.

Will test your mesh fixes ASAP and then report. Thank you!
