I installed the scenery, version 1.01

This version fixes my problems.

ORBX does not affect it.

 

P3D 3.4.22 - Win10

 

Tip to users installing it: Check carefully if you have leftover LPMA...ALT... .bgl files in \Scenery\World\Scenery folder from older FSX sceneries. Some times if not properly uninstalled such files remain there and affect the airport scenery.

In ...\FSX\scenery\World\scenery I do have AFX_LPMA_ALT.BGL and AFX_LPPS_ALT.bgl. Do they need to be removed?

 

I only had Aerosoft Madeira addons, the previous old version, and now Madeira X Evolution.

Hi

 

First of all the airport ist great, well done, but...

It seems the mesh is the same as in the old madeira scenery, is'n it? Thats why the colours from the airport doesn't blend well with the surrounding mesh and thats also why we have exactly most of the same mesh problems as with the old madeira scenery! May i am wrong?

 

thx

@maxhades That's correct, we had only this sattelite images available for the island from Aerosoft so this is what we used. I decided to do the airport area more colorful anyway even if it doesn't match the rest 100% correct.

 

OK stupid question and 1 observation.

 

Question: are all vertices welded and polygons co-planar where necessary and unnecessary polygons (ie invisible to user or back-facing) removed? I am a 3DS Max person but have not developed for Flight Sim so this may not be necessary.

 

Observation: You must have known this was so buggy yet you still released it causing all sorts of problems (or you didn't test, it but I cannot believe that). It is NOT the users' job to test your products. Frankly, I am annoyed. Yes I can uninstall or ask for my money back but that's not the point. I just want a reasonable working product and if I want crash detection on, I should be able to have it! Disabling part of the flight sim is NOT a good solution. In my opinion.

Vertices welding is part of object optimization and back faces are not present where there aren't necessary. 

 

Most of problems reported here are mesh problems caused by 3RD party products that I'm not responsible for and can't solve as well as previous Madeira developers couldn't. This addon is extremely sensitive about this and even one .bgl file that's left somewhere can cause problems later. 

Still we're doing our best to support all users and most of the problems have been solved.

Setting is 1m , so that is not an issue, can you advise if these houses

near runway are belonging to default p3d autogen or are they part of your

scenery, when it is default is it maybe possible to advise how to switch them off

better for me no building then floating buildings in airspace.

rgds.

I also had flying houses. With deactivation of my meshaddon this was solved. Do you use a meshaddon and deactivated the files for Madeira region?

Hi, is it possible to recolor also the satimage of the island and not only the airport area, please? Thank you.

This may be a big job. It may be easier to recolor the airport area.

I don't know if this would be such a big job. One image and with photoshop you can adjust the color channels, brightness etc. 

If you redraw all by hand, that would be of course a big job. 

I will try to do it with this little tool.

But I'm now in holidays, so it will take some time. Best solution would be, if @MK-Studios could do it ;)

Interesting thing, I need to downgrade my P3D to 3.2 and try this. ;) I decided to keep the airport area more colorful as it looks better to me, that could be changed very easy. Since we didn't have access to source data of satellite imaginary it wasn't possible to modify colors of all island .

Sounds great. If the tool fails, is there a chance Aerosoft can give you the source material to edit the colors, or do you need to contact the developer of the old Madeira?

I am getting major graphical problems with this software as above but the sea rises up in the air and there is a huge pole just before the aircraft stands. On runway 23 I disappear under the ground. On the Port Santos the runway rises out of the ground and when I take off the airport is surrounded by trenches. I bought Manchester X recently and it to had major graphical problems and I had to get something else. I am running Maderia on prepar3d 3.4 and have lots of ORBX software, I have no intention of deleting any of my files as its not my job, I bought the scenery in good faith and it does not work as intended. I therefore may or maynot buy your software in the future. I have inserted photos showing the problems. Will there be a further patch to fix these problems?.

Sorry, but you have to follow post #2.

you don't need to delete it, just rename bgl to inactive or whatever. That's a normal procedure, when some addons cover the same area. They are not always compatible or it is not possible to make an addon that works together with other addons. And as already in several posts mentioned, Madeira is a very special location with a floating runway above the ground. The developer had to do a lot tricks for that.

Hi Masterhawk Have done as asked and all is well so many thanks for your speedy answer. As I've said above this is the second software which I have had problems with and will be careful in future what I purchase, will check the forums before purchase. Maderia is beautiful even better at dusk or night.
