EDDT Pro P3D V4 - no Autogen near Airport

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I recently upgraded the Mega Airport Tegel X Scenery to the Professional in order to use it with P3D v4. During my first takeoff I noticed that autogen is missing around the airport (see pictures) I have a fresh copy of P3D v4 installed together with ORBX and the AS CRJ. Disabling ORBX does not help.

 

Any suggestions how I can fix the problem?

I have the same issue, only using FTX Global. There is a large exclusion zone near the airport.

Mee too, the performance is just horrible

 

Please compare the performance with Tegel unchecked (so with the default Airport), it is very low in the area anyway. It looks like the autogen in large Citys with many poligonal Autogen Objects will impact the performance in P3D V4, more then in FSX.

When I set the Autogendesity to NONE for both, frames are in a normal high area for V4, even with Spare the drop is significant and not different from Extremely Dense. There seams to be a other bug, because when I leave the Desity for Buildings to NONE and only set vegetation to spare, I see also many buildings. We need to see if the next P3D V4 Update will help here.

 

Regarding the missing autogen I can reproduce it and will check that tomorrow.

I am using OrbX FTX Germany North Region. Disabling the four Aerial_BerlinTegel* .bgl files in the scenery directory fit the airport into the Orbx Environment. The pictures look as if Flugsimulatorpilot has done the same. No difference in terms of the missing autogen, but there are huge differences in coloration with the Aereal* files enabled. Performance is no big issue for me, considering that the Berlin area with FTX Germany North has a certain impact on the framerate by itself. So the German Airport Team has done a good job imho.

 

@Oliver

Maybe you should offer an installation option for FTX GEN users? Could save some support-time :-)

 

Kind regards

Tom

Hi Tom,

 

maybe, but this depent on the airport, because in some case the Airport will be effected too, when the arial photo scene and the attached autogen is disabled.

 

btw, the scenery is not done by the German Airport Team, it is an PADLabs Product.

Hi,

 

thank you all for your answers. Tom is right, I disabled the 4 aerials.bgl files in order to fit the airport into the Orbx Environment. However, enabling these files does not help to solve the autogen problem. In Prepar3D v3 I had no problems with the airport.

 

Any ideas?

Removing the Aerial_ files did help with the autogen and everything seems to be quite ok. Performance on my end has definitely improved. Only one thing.... 3d lights from FTX Germany North are popping up within the airport surface area, including in the middle of taxiways and runways. So while there was too much exclusion before.. there is too little now. Of course at daytime that's not a biggy. I would however still appreciate an official compatibility and conflict-free experience using Tegel with FTX Germany North.

I disabled the four aerial and eddt_cvx_terrain.bgl too, like I did in P3DV3. Using FTX GEN of course too.

I don't understand why there is no option to choose wether using FTX GEN or not. FTX GEN is very popular and it should be considered imho.

Furthermore I use a modified afcad-file for EDDT from Holi (can be find in this forum) to prevent wrong parking positions of AirBerlin-AI's.

While I find an upgrade fee being in order as such, I don't have any appreciation for the fact there has been no proper fix for the issues with FTX Germany North. These issues have been mentioned on this forum several times before, there was even a promise of a patch once - doesn't PadLabs follow the Aerosoft fora??? GEN has been on the market for a year now and is not just an obscure freeware from a no-name developer. It's a save bet a large number of users will use it in conjuction with Tegel, actually most of them will probably buy AS EDDT as a substitue for the GEN-enhanced version by purpose.

 

I tried the aerial/cvx fix yesterday and it didn't work properly for me, but I was short of time and will retry it later.

 

Kind regards, Michael

Funny enough I don't see that problem at all, and I have Germany North, LC Europe, Global and Vector installed. Everything is like it should be, with the exception of the discolored ground. So there might be something wrong with your installation?

That's strange. I only have GEN active when flying in the area and all the remaining Global Products (except Global Base, of course) off which shouldn't be required for GEN to work. But who knows, I'll try again with them active later.

 

Kind regards, Michael

I totally agree with Michael's words.

 

I have to correct my advices regarding the afcad-file above. This file is in the latest EDDT not useable anymore; it will supress the jetways. So we have to see wrong traffic-sorting at the gates, but this is not an important thing. The cvx-file I'd putted back into the sim because I can't see any negative influences anymore and because I don't know for that the file is nessessary I leave it better in the sim too.

The aerial files are supressing a lot of autogen and vegetation nearby Tegel (Hohenzollernkanal etc.) in my sim. But sometimes things go curious ways: in FTX GEN I'd deactivated everything that is related to EDDT in order to have nothing twice in the active scenery which could be the reason for troubles. Maybe, in case of EDDT Pro these exclusions are needed now to have full autogen and vegetations?!

I will post two shots with and without the aerials later.

Thanks for the feedback.

How times could change, yesterday I was the "Haus -und Hofprogrammierer" ;)

Bus this title certainly didn't come from Kai-Uwe ;)

 

I will test your fix tonight.

 

Best, Michael

Yes, I used this term. But not in a negative sense and: I didn't use a name!B) But you're right Oliver, I meant you. But see it as a compliment. I have the feeling that you are nearly the only one who is able to move old things, written in an FS9 -like code, to a modern P3Dv4 architecture, especially old things coming from the GAP-team (EDNY, EDDS and so on). And almost everytime if a problem appears after releasing a software you are the one who make a fix; a kind of "AS firebrigade". Thats why I use the term " Haus -und Hofprogrammierer".

Applied fix, everything fine now. Many thx to the AS "Haus und Hofprogrammierer" (sth. similar to the 'supplier to the royal court', e.g. a label of excellence ;))

Thanks for your explanations, Oliver.

I don't like these aggesive tunes in the forums too. In german we say: "wie man in den Wald hineinruft, so schallt es heraus". Nobody wants to be treated in a bad way and thats why he shouldn't do this with others. But maybe we are too old; sometimes I have the feeling that the tone is more roughly today. But this it not mines.

And of course you are right that work has to be paid. In my job this is a rule and in yours, of course too. Yes, for me this is a hobby and people like you make this possible, thanks a lot! Hopefully you don't loose your motivations for pleasuring ourselves:lazy_s:.

With many interests I read your explanations about sharing the work you do with other developers. Everytime it is interesting to hear in which way an addon is created and to know coherences can help avoiding misunderstandings.

 

A nice weekned for you too.

With the Professional Serie we try get back to old times, where both sides can be happy, developers and customers. When there are technical issues and they are factual and comprehensible posted, I am looking into it.

 

Thanks from my side for the explanation, too.

 

I have been certainly among the first  Aerosoft customers, still have the Prof. Sundermann FS4 Germany sceneries on my shelf. I am more than happy if Aerosoft is "trying to get back to old times". Count me among those being thankful for taking up the ball again. I for one am prepared to pay what I consider a fair upgrade fee to get my AS scenery collection up to date and into Prepar3d4.

 

Kind regards, Michael

Just made a short text flight from EDDT with FTX Germany North and using the Photoreal off option Autogen is in place again.

 

Thanks for the quick fix and kind regards,

Michael
