active VECTOR AEC not Recognizing KPDX

Recommended Posts

 Hey guys, 


 I am having a problem with Vector  in that it does not recognize the standard code of KPDX.   The main issue I’m having is that I installed Bill Womack’s new Portland scenery, and I’m having elevation issues. Has anybody else had this problem?   From what I can tell the scenery looks beautiful, just not displaying right. When I type in KPDX into the AEC, It turns up nothing.   I have ensured that all updates are current, but still the problem persists. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

My runways are sunken below ground level at KPDX!


It's likely you're running another product that has added an elevation adjustment file for KPDX.
1 - Use the Flightbeam Manager's troubleshooting tool to automatically find files causing this.
2 - If the above doesn't work, look in your root P3D4 folder, under "Scenery\World\scenery" and do a search for "kpdx". If any files turn up in the search, set their file extension to ".OFF" to disable them. This should restore your runway elevations.
3- If you still have elevation issues, manually remove the following files into a backup location:
In the following folder: ORBX\FTX_NA\FTX_NA_PNW05_SCENERY\scenery


In Scenery\World\scenery, the following:
