  1. Thank you, Nick. Orbx would be not the same without your support work. Have a lovely weekend!
  2. Found a needle in a haystack: Flying over the city of Meißen in Germany (near EDDC Dresden) with Germany North and Germany South active I found a small patch of morphing night textures. First, I followed the usual steps by Nick and Holger (i.e., a new lclookup.bgl, a new terrain.cfg) but I could not get rid off the bug. So, I reinstalled GES and GEN but the night textures remained. After fighting with this issue in P3Dv4 I tried to replicate it in v5 and could find the exact same error. Having still a fairly vanilla v5 with only Global, OLC and GEN/GES running (with OLC border blending unchecked) I would now conclude that this is indeed a scenery error. I would appreciate if somebody from Orbx could please check this. Interestingly enough could I not find any similar error. But as this happens in Meißen it can probably happen at other locations too. Thanks, Christoph (The screenshot is from v5 but it does look similar in v4).
  3. Hi Greg, hi Orbx, Jeffrey, the SODE developer, kindly allowed me to beta test the new SODE 1.70 during the last weeks but just after release I found small incompatibility with the wonderful Glacier Park airport and SODE 1.70. It totally slipped through on my end and I am sorry for not informing you earlier. But it should be a rather simple fix: The new SODE version will be stricter with environment/weather-dependent SimObjects. The airport configuration requires an “EnvironmentalDataProbe”simobject. Without the EnvironmentalDataProbe, no environment/weather-dependent SimObject will be displayed in the simulator. The log will now list errors such errors. An example for KGPI: [10:12:53.567] ERROR SODE.FSLOOP : EDP dependent SimObject [SODE_KGPI_GP:KGPI_GP] will not be injected because EDP does not exist/or SimObject is not defined in ClientList! Without the EDP will the groundpoly and other EDP-depended SimObjects not displayed in the sim. Hope this helps you a bit to update the SODE configuration for KGPI. Christoph
  4. Urmel enhanced LIEO with his AFCAD https://jcai.dk/2019/12/Orbx-lieo-olbia-costa-smeralda-airport/ and I think he also fixed the jetway problem by moving the parking positions away from the terminal.
  5. Hi Raz, Hi team. Your Vienna was an airport that I was very much looking forward to and your rendition does not disappoint. Thank you for the lovely add-on! While testing out the scenery I saw a minor glitch with the animated ground service equipment: After the animation loop is finished, all vehicles come to a full stop and remain static for some time (maybe a minute or two?) before the loop restarts again. Thanks, Christoph
  6. Yes, Vector is installed. And you are right, it could need some improvements. But at the same time it looks very good in Egypt, Tunisia, South Africa, and so on. In the end, It is a question of source date. For me, Vector is one of the most essential add-ons and I would not want to miss it. Back to topic: Many of the fellow users here already have OLC Africa. Maybe somebody could post a similar shot from Lomé? I really begin to wonder if something is off with my installation. And to add something positive: North Africa and Egypt look very nice. Great improvement there.
  7. Hi Orbx, Let me first thank you for giving us OLC Africa. It was my most look-forward-to add-on (with OLC Asia) and I bought it instantly. As one who never been to Africa (well, only to Tunisia), I am unsure if I simply imagined Africa in colors that have nothing in common with reality or if something is a bit off? So maybe somebody with travel experience can clarify on this for me: I always imagined West Africa and East Africa to be more green with lush vegetation. There is of course a dry and a wet season at most places. But right now it looks a bit strange in the sim. Uganda, DRC, Rwanda are very yellowish / dried out and the wet seasons seems to be totally missing. The same for West Africa, which looks a bit like fall in Europe. And I tried various months in the sim before posting here. Moreover, I compared some places with screenshots posted by Nick and they are similar to my setup. So everything should be installed correctly. OLC Africa is a huge product sold a bargain price and I am very thankful for the discount. But does it really look the whole year that dry in Africa? My shots were done in Lomé, Togo and Entebbe, Uganda. Real life:
  8. Hey Nick, Thank you very much. That is very much appreciated and also that you made my post from the Review Forum visible again here. And just do make it clear: I like the scenery itself very much. Matteo has done a wonderful job with Olbia. So I do not regret to have bought the scenery for a minute. After all, we got a extensive update 1.05 that further improved the scenery and thus, it would be unfair to attest Matteo a lack of commitment here. He is a developer who is always improving his sceneries (just think about KSAN v2 ) and I do look very much forward to Burbank. So it is just the lack of support for this very issue. Anyway, we found the problem and I have fixed it myself. Maybe the AFCAD can be altered for a future v1.06, as the parking spots just need to be moved some 5-8 meters back. Meanwhile, if anybody needs my AFCAD edit feel free to contact me via PM. Cheers, Christoph
  9. Nearly one week passed and there is no reaction here yet. I cannot say that I find this support encouraging after I even tried to help and narrow down the problem with a video. So if anybody is facing the same problem: The AFCAD coming with the scenery is the culprit here. The parking spots are too close to the terminal and prevent the SODE jetways from docking to user and AI aircraft. The parking spots need to be moved back to make the SODE jetways functional. Further, I am bitterly disappointed about the whole way you handled this support issue. Nobody from the developers felt responsibe to react in this thread that is running since April. Only Doug tried his best (as always to help the users, thanks Doug!). Only after posting the problem in the ORBX Product review forum I got some short lived support. And what did you do? You deleted my post in the review thread, where I did appreciated the scenery (same what I have done in this thread) but at the same time pointed out that the SODE feature is broken. Once again, the feature is broken as you can clearly see in my video. I always had the impression that ORBX is better than this and reacts on constructive criticism in an open manner. ORBX is a quality name and in my opinion, you are not in the need to remove comments as long as they are valid and not to unpolite.
  10. @Matteo Veneziani, Thanks for chiming in here. First and foremost I want to say again how much I do like Olbia. Yes, the aircraft in use is the PMDG 737. I tried the same with the FS Labs A320 and there the jetways work. However, they do never connect with the AI traffic (SODE's AI detection is active, all aircraft have correct EXITS defined in the aircraft.cfg). I could also observe some anomaly with LIEO. Using the TAB+S Sode menu will result in an error massage (that probably also prevent AI docking). However, the jetways do connect with GSX. So something seems to be buggy. I also opened a thread over at the SODE forum (https://sode.12bpilot.ch/?topic=jetway-does-not-connect-via-tabs-but-via-gsx-orbx-lieo) as I did never saw something similar before. I recorded a short clip to demonstrate the problem. Also, take notice of the AI aircraft in the background. Let me know if you need more information. I am more than happy to help you. Thanks, Christoph
  11. I agree that LIEO is a very nicely done scenery and I very much appreciate @Matteo Veneziani's efforts of giving us an extensive update pack with tons of improvements. However, the SODE jetways do not work at Olbia. Neither do they connect to the user aircraft nor do they connect to AI. This problem was already brought up in April and there is simply no support given by the designer. Right now, Olbia is advertised with a feature that is broken and not functional. Sorry to spoil the party here but this should be mentioned and taken care off.
  12. Same for me. I tried to play with the values of the xml-config of LIEO but could not get them working. There is simply not enough manoeuvring space for the jetways to extent and to turn before docking to the aircraft. SODE does not connect to the user aircraft nor does it connect to the AI. @Matteo Veneziani Is there any chance for an update for this otherwise wonderful scenery?
  13. Hi @Graham Eccleston , hey team, Could you attach the static jetway placement files for YBBN Brisbane here? I use YBBN in P3Dv4 and the jetway's behavior is a bit of a show stopper. A fresh install did not solve the problem and I suppose that the static option is not included in the v4 installer. Deleting the animated jetways in ADE is pretty simple. Now I just need the static ones. Thank you and best wishes!
  14. Update: After a manual download of OLC NA and Global Base and reinstallation of the ZIPs through FTX Central it seems to work again. Also a OPENLC_zBase entry is now at the bottom under the other OLC entries in the scenery library. This was missing before, and strange to me as Central showed everything properly installed and also the Troubleshooter reported a correct migration? Anyway it work's now as intended. I just hope my full fat regions are alright as I have no motivation to download them all again :-)
  15. After building a new rig I switched from FSX over to P3Dv4. But somehow openLC NA is not showing up at all. At least I can't get it to work at Havana/Cuba (and probably at more places). The scenery looks like only the Global textures are working but OLC is refusing to show up. FTX Central shows all sceneries as up to date (including the latest Libraries) and the Troubleshooter is all green. Also forcing a new migration via FTX Central didn't solved the problem. All entries are active in the scenery library and I checked the insertion points for the right order. I even tried to switch off and on the OLC NA entries in the Scenery Library and the scenery didn't changed at all. So I suspect OLC NA not working at all. Maybe there is something I am missing right now. Any help would be highly appreciated. The attached scrennshot is what I am getting at MUHA/Havana airport in Cuba. And this is what I expect to see (and also remembering from my FSX setup):
