Manchester X Airport Elev problem

Recommended Posts

Hello,

This might sound weird since I'm clearly the only one, at the moment, reporting that one but for some reason I have an airport elevation problem. You can see what I mean with the images below. Only thing I did is deactivated "Static People". 

 

Hoping to get rid of this problem soon.

 

Cheers,

Brandon P.

I unchecked the vector in the manchester configurator, and manually excluded EGCC in vector. Then it worked for me. Although i am missing vegetation around the hotel, and airport veichles

Navigate to the following folder (where %FLIGHTSIM% is your sim root directory):

 

%FLIGHTSIM%\ORBX\FTX_EU\FTX_EU_ENG_05\scenery

 

Delete the following files:

ADE_FTX_ENG_EGCC.BGL

ADE_FTX_ENG_EGCC_CVX.BGL

FTX_ENG_EGCC_objects.bgl

 

You should probably do this for any other add-on airport you have as well, as FTX has a habit of things 'bleeding through' the scenery - i.e. duplicate objects, default terminal building appearing over the top of other buildings, etc.

 

Also, do you have FTX Global installed as well, or just England?

Okay thanks for trying.

Could you check the order of your scenery library?

 

Should be something similar to this:

 

Add-on Scenery (Aerosoft Manchester, etc)

FTX Orbx Libraries

OpenLC Europe

OpenLC North America

OpenLC Base

Default P3D Africa, Asia, Europe, etc

Orbx Vector OBJ

Orbx Vector APT

Orbx Vector CVX

Orbx Vector EXX

Default P3D scenery 1107 to 000

Orbx FTX Vector AEX

Scenery Base

Scenery World

 

If you run the FTX Central app, I think there is an option to set the library insertion points and will automatically configure this for you.

That's how it's presented in my scenery library

EDIT: But thanks for all the help anyways, you are more reactive then the developper himself

Hello Brandon,

 

Sometimes manually disabling a scenery in FTX Vector doesn't work.  When that happens, try running the Auto Configurator for Airport Elevation.

 

I don't have the Manchester scenery yet, so I don't know if this will work, but it does work with other scenery when the Manual disable doesn't.

 

Best wishes.

Hi

I don't have this EGCC but if you have UTX Europe, try to deactivate EGCC.

 "Modify Status of Repositioned Airports" option under the "Terrain" menu of the UTX Setup Tool.

Maybe this causes elevation problems

Hi

Just a quick thought but have you checked the following ORBX folders as they do contain EGCC bgl files so if you look at your ORBX FTX Vector folders in the locations below just to check that they are as follows..

 

The folder to look in are as follows where ...[drive]:\ is the drive you P3D or FSX for that matter is installed on

 

...[drive]:\Lockheed Martin v3\Prepar3D v3\ORBX\FTX_VECTOR\FTX_VECTOR_AEC\scenery

This should have one EGCC file named…

 

EGCC.inactive

If it is named EGCC.bgl the just change the extension to read .inactive

 

Then check the following folder….

 

...[drive]:\Lockheed Martin v3\Prepar3D v3\ORBX\FTX_VECTOR\FTX_VECTOR_APT\scenery

There should be two EGCC files named..

 

EGCC.inactive

If the above is named EGCC.bgl the just change the extension to read .inactive

 

and the second one is named

 

EGCC_default.bgl

 

I hope it is of some use.

The 'belt & braces' method (as opposed to picking through specific folders) for all this is...

 

Browse to \<P3D Root\ORBX\

 

Search EGCC from there (so it searches ALL ORBX folders below its root), RENAME anything (everything) in the results to <filename>.<originalextension>.OFF (for the record, I actually just replace the last letter of the original extension with an underscore - it helps me track what I've disabled and what other things have (given that the .off suffix is used by other tools/installers))

( @tomkellock92 : you clearly know your stuff, but I'm not sure deleting things is good advice; if OP wants to reinstate his previous scenery set-up, he's stuck - renaming or moving is the 'safe' way)

 

If after disabling EVERYTHING in ALL the ORBX subfolders with EGCC in their name, you still have a problem, it's 99.9(r)% likely caused by something else.

 

Best regards,

 

Rob.
