  1. You're welcome! Mind, that I also pulled the visibility in the weather settings to max, to have a good view on the islands. Maybe the dust in the atmosphere "conflicts" in your case somehow with the terrain. Idk, quite difficult to see on your screen.
  2. Great to hear that you enjoy #Seychelles4XPlane. Thanks for your feedback. Happy landings!
  3. Tried several settings and view angles, but I'm sorry, I cannot reproduce your issue. Here are some snapshots (click to view the 4K original's). X-Plane 11.41r1, no additional plugins installed (except SAM plugin, but that really shouldn't be a an issue). A sunset and a sunrise picture: At the shorelines, I see the lights of various buildings and streets, as well as lights from traffic. No graphical artifacts, as you show them.
  4. Of course, because I'm very interested in what's the correct way to workaround such gaps in the XP default Navdata-base. Always expected, that a custom apt.dat is enough, because LR states in their developer documentation: "[...] all data about airports and runways is taken from the apt.dat, which has been extended so it can carry information necessary for the avionics [...]". May I ask, what you do to workaround the issue? (would be also helpful for others, who follow this support-thread). Thanks in advance!
  5. Strange, FSSB and FSSD are the official ICAO codes for Bird and Denis Island, but it seems, that XP doesn't provide any Navdata for these airfields. Even more strange: When I create a flight plan with an external tool and load the flight plan in the default G530, XP complains "invalid departure airport: FSSB", even when the airport is defined in a custom apt.dat. Hmm...
  6. Seychelles4XPlane doesn't include ortho-photos in terms of a native photo-mesh, but features a "custom terrain mesh with photo-realistic textures" (as we state it in the official product info). These textures are derived from high quality air-photos, but they are "generic": That means, you may encounter repetitive patterns, but usually they aren't really noticeable, in particular if you fly on low altitudes. Such a mesh-solution has a lot of advantages over native photo-meshes, amongst others: consistently uniform quality (as it regards resolution, colors and so on) and most important: no distortions, in particular at steep slopes. Enjoy your exploration of Seychelles XP!
  7. Thanks for your feedback. Please update your X-Plane installation. You're currently running X-Plane 11.40r2. You need at least 11.41r1. Just run the "X-Plane 11 Installer" which you'll find in the X-Plane 11 installation directory. Let me know, if it works!
  8. Thanks for your feedback. You're welcome! I'm happy to hear that you enjoy #Antarctica4XPlane 🙂 Well, the strategy in developing the terrain mesh was and is to build the terrain meshes there, where we already have add-ons from third-parties – or at least: where add-ons are planned. The Ellsworth Mountains were initially planned for part 4, but based on the current plans of add-on developers, it's more likely that we'll see two other regions first. After the last A4XP update about a year ago, a new elevation model for Antarctica was published. It has the potential to improve the A4XP mesh, but not without a lot of extra-efforts – the dataset is full of artifacts and anomalies. Anyway, the idea is to improve at least the areas around existing and planned add-on sceneries. To summarize: The further A4XP mesh-development depends on the plans of add-on developers. I'll keep you up-to-date.
  9. Official Seychelles XP trailer 🙂 Further information about #Seychelles4XPlane in the developer-blog...

  11. Here in the Aerosoft Shop or in one of the partner shops? Which one?
  12. Seychelles4XPlane - Seychelles Scenery for X-Plane is out now!

  13. A stunning landscape awaits you with more than a dozen scenic landing-sites: Seychelles International Airport, Praslin Island Airport and thirteen additional airfields and four heliports which are spread over the smaller islands of the Seychelles archipelago. But be prepared for challenging approaches: The island-runways are all quite short, embedded in dense tropical vegetation, and four of them are even unpaved grass airstrips. In short: Island hopping as its best! Seychelles XP is available here in the Aerosoft Shop. Further information and tons of snapshots can be found in the release notes on my website.
  14. Es ist soweit: Eine atemberaubende Landschaft erwartet euch mit mehr als einem Dutzend malerisch gelegenen LandeplĂ€tzen: Seychelles International Airport, Praslin Island Airport und dreizehn zusĂ€tzliche FlugplĂ€tze und vier Heliports, die ĂŒber die kleineren Inseln des Seychellen Archipels verteilt sind. Seid auf herausfordernde AnflĂŒge vorbereitet: Die Landebahnen der Inseln sind recht kurz, eingebettet in dichte tropische Vegetation, und vier davon unbefestigte Graslandebahnen. Kurzum: InselhĂŒpfen vom Feinsten! Seychelles XP ist hier im Aerosoft Shop erhĂ€ltlich. Weitere Informationen und jede Menge SchnappschĂŒsse in den Release Notes auf meiner Website.
  15. In addition: I quickly checked the RWY thresholds of our scenery package, to be sure, that everything is fine with Faroe Islands XP: RWY 30 matches exactly the latest AIP by Naviair (RWY 12 is marginally off, but that should not be really noticeable in practice)
  16. I tested with XP11.41r1 and without any navigation data add-ons, and when I fly from ROBUR to VG907 I can intercept the LOC at that point. I see, that XP ships two contradictory datasets for EKVG, but I assume, that the second data set located in "Global Airports" is in use: Resources/default data/earth_nav.dat: 4 62.067677778 -7.293527778 282 11030 18 300.112 MF EKVG EK 30 ILS-cat-I 6 62.059377778 -7.265019444 282 11030 18 350300.112 MF EKVG EK 30 GS 12 62.059377778 -7.265019444 282 11030 25 0.000 MF EKVG EK VAGAR DME-ILS Global Airports/Earth nav data/earth_nav.dat: 4 62.06767600 -007.29326200 276 11030 26 298.030 MF EKVG EK 30 ILS-cat-I 6 62.05942300 -007.26491800 275 11030 10 350298.030 MF EKVG EK 30 GS 12 62.05942300 -007.26491800 275 11030 25 0.000 MF EKVG EK 30 DME-ILS Mind, that we don't provide custom navigation data with Faroe Islands XP. So you should encounter your issue also when you disable Faroe Islands XP. Isn't it? Due I read about a similar report at x-plane.org, I wonder, what aircraft do you use and if you can reproduce the issue also with one of the XP default aircraft?
  17. <<< Bird Island (FSSB, Gras, 920 Meter) <<< Alphonse (FSAL, Asphalt, 1.220 Meter) Nur zwei von insgesamt dreizehn zusĂ€tzlichen LandeplĂ€tzen. Weitere Info und SchnappschĂŒsse hier... Wahrscheinlich eines der letzten Postings im Vorfeld des Releases 😉 Folgt diesem Thread und dem Entwickler Blog, um keine News zu verpassen!
  18. <<< Bird Island Airport (FSSB, Grass, 920 meters) <<< Alphonse Airport (FSAL, Concrete, 1.220 meters) Just two out of the thirteen additional landing-sites. More info and snapshots here... Likely one of the last postings prior the release 😉 Follow this thread and the development blog to don't miss any news!
  19. Hello Franz, Thanks for your kind feedback. Great that you enjoy #Faroes4XPlane. We'll gladly check what's going on with the mentioned localizer. Can you provide further information: Correct positioning vs. XP. Thanks and greets, Matthias
  20. After having first looks on the landscape and the helipads, it's now definitively the time to take also a closer look at the airports. Let's start with the two largest: <<< Seychelles International Airport (FSIA) <<< Regional Praslin Island Airport (FSPP) More snapshots and infos in the newest publication on my website. BTW: Thirteen additional airstrips, spread over the Seychelles archipelago, will be included in #Seychelles4XPlane as well. More about that in the next posting...
  21. Nachdem wir in vorherigen BeitrĂ€gen auf die Landschaft und die Helipads eingegangen sind, ist es nun an der Zeit, einen ersten Blick auf die FlughĂ€fen zu werfen. Beginnen wir mit den beiden grĂ¶ĂŸten: <<< Seychelles International Airport (FSIA) <<< Regional Praslin Island Airport (FSPP) Weitere SchnappschĂŒsse und Infos dazu auf meiner Webseite. BTW: Dreizehn weitere Landebahnen, verteilt ĂŒber des Archipel der Seychellen, werden ebenfalls in #Seychelles4XPlane enthalten sein. Mehr dazu im nĂ€chsten Posting...
  22. In case you have missed the latest posting on the developer blog: Seychelles4XPlane will offer a few special destinations for helicopter pilots in addition to the 15 airports and airfields: The snapshots show the heliports in the port of Victoria, as well as on Silhouette and La Digue island. Further reading...
  23. Falls ihr die jĂŒngste Veröffentlichung im Entwickler-Blog verpasst habt: Seychelles4XPlane wird neben den 15 FlughĂ€fen und FlugplĂ€tzen auch ein paar spezielle Ziele fĂŒr Helikopter-Piloten anbieten: Die SchnappschĂŒsse zeigen die Heliports im Hafen von Victoria, sowie auf den Inseln Silhouette und La Digue.
