  1. Hi Stephen, Your supposition sounds like a possible explanation, however, it doesn't seem to work. For example I can right click on an area of the map and create a waypoint at: N50 44.2 W020 59.6 no problem at all, but that doesn't confine to the restrictions of CAA CAP694 because it's not spaced accordingly. I can then edit the Longitude of that saved waypoint to N50 44.2 W020 00.0, no problem it will accept that, however, if I then change the Latitude to N50 50.0 and try to save that it just disappears, which seems strange as it was
  2. Hi, I'm having some problems entering new user waypoints, it has allowed me to create a few but then when I try and add others by manually entering all the details it doesn't work. On the left side of the screen where the heading is for where the new user waypoints are being stored I can see that goes up, but under the Waypoints tab it doesn't show the new waypoint I just created. When I close PFPX (v 2.03) and re-open it the number of user waypoints on the left hand side of the screen then matches the number of waypoints shown at the top of the screen. The
  3. Oliver, Juergen & Mathijs Thankfully I have now tracked the problem down, after a few hours of testing and dropping various AI designers models back into UTL one at a time I was able to re-create the problem with just one model. That was the FSPXAI Boeing 777-300 / 300ER. At first, I thought it was going to be a livery issue but as a matter of course I decided to re-download the base files from simMarket just in case, after installing the newly downloaded files and dropping it all back into UTL I couldn't re-create the problem. I then checked the new dow
  4. Thanks for the new file Oliver, and your kind words Mathijs, Now the bad news, unfortunately the new file from Oliver hasn't changed things. Rather than you guys doing all the work I have gone back to what I thought possibly could have been a problem that I mentioned before and that is Ultimate Traffic Live - I don't know how, but when I disable that the problem goes away. So what I have done so far is: 1) Gone back to the original files with EGLL (latest version) 2) Uninstalled UTL 3) Reinstalled UTL default version 4) Installed UTL update to latest vers
  5. Hi, Again guys thanks for all your thoughts, and the new file to try Oliver. Unfortunately it hasn't worked. Just for clarification, I disabled the original EGLL_OBJ-GROUND.BGL file located in Sim-wings London Heathrow Professional\Scenery by changing the extension on it, and replaced it with the new file you put in the zip file here. I tried it with and without the AFX_EGLL_ALT.BGL file left in the scenery\world\scenery folder as I wasn't sure whether to leave it in there or not. It's not the best quality in the world but I did a screen copy video with the
  6. Juergen, I've had a play around with the FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION settings and took it from 0.05 through to 0.95 in 0.05 increments. None of them made a single bit of difference unfortunately. With regards to AI traffic, I tend not to use many of UTL's own ones and instead run a combination of FSPXAI, TFS, FAIB & AIA. Where needed I use AIG's modifications to make them compatible with P3D. At Heathrow I'd probably say all the models depicted will be my own downloads and not UTL's default ones. Do appreciate your suggestions though. Regards,
  7. Juergen, You may have something there, I did drop the UTL AI traffic right down and the problem stopped. However, I can't find a sweet spot where I can have the AI set. Sometimes I can have it at 150 aircraft and the runway textures will remain solid, at others, I can drop it to 100 aircraft and the runway textures will still jump backwards and forwards between the two different ones (i.e. Tarmac and Concrete) on the lead into 09L. I am suprised this happens though because my system is a powerful one with a 2080ti card and it can handle elsewhere AI traffic up to much h
  8. Juergen, Thanks for that, guess I'm just grasping at anything that could be causing the problem. Regards, Steve.
  9. Hi Oliver, Thanks for taking the time to get back to me. I have just tried using the AFX_EGLL_ALT.BGL file from the other forum post you suggested I check. I tried that this morning prior to doing a complete re-install and it didn't work then, unfortunately I just tried again and it didn't work now either. I did check and there were no other EGLL bgl files in the Scenery\World\scenery folder. I have had one thought but I do not know if it is relevant at all. In GSX Level 2 it shows the airfield elevation as 25.298m which equates to 82.99869 feet. In Ultimate
  10. Hi, Thanks for the help and the link to another thread with a similar problem. I believe I have tracked the problem down to - Ultimate Traffic Live. I followed all the information given in the other thread and then started disabling one add on after another, it was when I disabled Ultimate Traffic Live that the problem stopped. To try and fix the problem I have done a complete re-install of P3D and all my add-ons, as soon as I added Ultimate Traffic Live again the problem re-appeared. I don't understand how though, as that programme as far as I'm aware doesn
  11. Hi, Yes, you are correct, the markings are distorted as well. I have previously carried out a manual check of the Orbx scenery folders, ever single BGL file that has EGLL in its name has either been deactivated by the Orbx configuration or by me. There are definitely no active EGLL bgl files in the Orbx folders. Thanks Steve.
  12. Hi, I have a strange problem with the runway textures at Heathrow, they primarily affect the 09 end and 09L is particularly obvious. Depending upon the angle I approach the runway the textures change from one to another and back again if I change angles. This happens not only taxxing but also flying an approach. I am running: Sim-wings London Heathrow Professional version 1.10 Prepar3D v4.5.12.30293 Orbx Global (Base, openLC Europe, Vector) and EU England. Global Vector Airport Elevations Corrections has been run and saved. EU England Control Panel has been accessed an
