    Misaligned ENGM

    After 50 hours of testing different approaches into ENGM the problem is no long valid. Seems to me it could be narrowed down to one of two tings. Zibo bug Navigraph bug Either which, the problem is not there now, at least I have not had any misalignment issues. I have tested both 19R/L and 01L/R and the plane flies it perfectly using latest AIRAC Hopefully this will continue

    Misaligned ENGM

    Hi Mario, sorry for the late response, been working. I believe the default X-Plane 737 is not able to fly RNAV Z approach hence the Zibo Mod. I did try the IXEG 737-300 and it too was not able to align for the ILS doing an RNAV Z or Y approach. Doing a normal ILS CAT3 the only way I managed to land was when I set the inbound course to 016 which is 3 degrees from the real one.. So I tested it again after removing the Aerosoft ENGM and using 1. Default and 2. Freeware airport by tdg On both occasions I managed to fly and RNAV approach perfectly. PS.. I have no issues with this on Aerosoft ENBR scenery. Only ENGM, but I have heard this is not uncommon and reported airports I have heard is Here are some feedbacks This is of course just a few I would love for others to try and fly this using Zibo airplane, IXEG or any other. I would love to figure this thing out. My logic states that when problem eliminates by changing the scenery, it is there to begin with. Hope you figure it out, but my money is on misalignment..

    Try using a 737 with RNAV, VNAV and LNAV capability. I suggest the excellent 737-800 Zibo modification https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B-tdl3VvPeOOYm12Wm80V04wdDQ Then I suggest flying the ENVA/27 UTUN1W UTUNA M609 BELGU BELG3L ENGM/01L route using the latest NAVDATA from Navigraph. Good luck.

    No problem Heinz, thank you so much for taking action on this. I have now let 10 people fly into this airport and everybody says the airport is not aligned, i.e. they cannot capture the ILS, especially on 01L/R Looking forward to hearing from you Have a nice day sir. Tom

    Don't Aerosoft provide support for their X-Plane packages?

    Misaligned ENGM

    Dear Aerosoft. I would argue that the ENGM Oslo Airport Gardermoen is misaligned. This is especially noticable when you fly and advanced aircraft with RNAV and VNAV/LNAV capability such as ie.. ZIBO or IXEG Inbound course of the airport for 01L and 01R is more 016 than 013 according to charts. This makes the plane unable to capture the ILS VOR LOC I have now tested this scenario and had it confirmed by other users. Using this route ENVA/27 UTUN1W UTUNA M609 BELGU BELG3L ENGM/01L I did 3 test - 1 with Aerosoft - 2 with default scenery 3 with third party freeware scenery. On both 2 and 3 the plane Zibo 737-800 had no problem flying the ILS to the dot, no issues or deviations. On 1 the plane was not able to capture the ILS VOR So I wondered, if ILS01L was wrong, how about 01R and 19L/R? Did 3 more flights into every ILS and sure enough, no capture using Aerosoft. To then eliminate user issues, I asked more people to do the same, and the feedback was pretty much the same. This makes me come to the conclusions that the airport is misaligned. I have checked Aerosoft ENBR and this do not have this issue at all. But then again this is not converted by Jo Erlend Sund. I believe FSX airports are in general misaligned compared to X-Plane, so any conversion that do not take this into action will automatic have a 3 degree misalignment. Could you please check this Aerosoft, all I want is to have this gorgeous airport for use in X-Plane 11.25 and so on. Thank you Best regards Tom Knudsen

    Crash to desktop with ENBR

    Hi Can confirm that it was a bug in the X-Plane 11.02R2 AI aircrafts. Laminar Research has this on their to do list.

    Crash to desktop with ENBR

    All sent now to Laminar Research as we may have narrow it down to be a bug in AI for 11.02R2 beta and not the ENBR scenery in particular. Will of course update this thread when more news or fixes are updated. Thanks for trying to assist guys.

    Crash to desktop with ENBR

    Hi Matthias Sorry, not at this moment. Working close with LR to fix this issue and try to verify if it is strictly a third party issue or related to beta R2 for Windows.

    Crash to desktop with ENBR

    Just been talking to Jo Erlend Sund regarding his scenery ENBR. After several incidents where X-Plane crash to desktop (confirmed and investigated by Laminar), I was redirected to this forum as he did not have much to do with this. I was under the impression that this scenery was converted by starport-sceneries.com so I sent an email based upon Jo Erlends feedback to them. But I also wanted to notify Aerosoft and other users of it. Not sure what happens or what causes this CTD, but it has happened on 3 separate occasions now. You choose the airport, select placement then loads the scenery. Without any warning, XP is shutting down. Next time it might start normally! I filed a bug with Laminar Research since I was using XP11.02R2 beta, but after they investigated it via the crash report, it was clear the fault was the developers of the airport ENBR. If this was a freeware, I would only contact the developer and let him know, but when it is a purchased product I tend to take it more seriously. Sure hope you can fix this issue! Best regards Tom Knudsen

    Allways, and I do... But it does not explain why the scenery is so demanding in regards to FPS? Or even if there is space to amend and correct it in future development right? My best educated guess is that it has to much poly´s to go around, if so the developer needs to take a detail look into where he can efficiently narrow it down to increase the overall performance. I dunno of course know how the texture is resampled or even what the normal size is, but I found that texture scaling is a huge FPS gain in FSX. Anyway, there are always difference in how sceneries are made and the quality of the end product, but I tend to favour performance over eye candy any day of the week. An great example would be EGLL (London Heathrow) Better performance with UK2000 scenery, but far better eye candy with Aerosoft (no offence intended to either parties) So, to conclude: My hopes and dreams lay in the making of and airport suite that are more focused on performance than beauty..... But that´s me right
