noted Yellow or brown patches all over scenery.

Recommended Posts

Hi Carlos

 

I tried re-installing trees but unfortunately it made no difference. So, I decided to land in

one of the yellow patches to get a closer look and it turns out that it is actually patches of Desert

or Arid Land Class with trees relevant to that sort of area! (see photo below). Hopefully this will

help the developers to find a solution. I even tried deleting the entire Orbx software including Orbx

Central, Formatting the drive and then re-installing everything but it was still exactly the same! :banghead:

Thank you so much for your help with the grey patch - I will try that fix this afternoon.

 

I presume that if the developers find a solution, they will post here to let me know?

I'm not quite sure how these forums work as I have never needed them before for Orbx scenery.

 

Anyway, Thanks a million for your time!!  :D

 

Best regards

Clive.

Hi Ben

 

Thanks for your reply, It only just popped up so didn't see it before my last post.

Please see my current findings and picture of yellow areas which turn out to be Desert.

Hopefully may help you to pinpoint the problem!

 

Thanks very much

 

Clive.

Hi Clive

You're welcome

You can't be in better hands than Nick's and Ben's so just wait for their solution

I just shared what I've learned or I'm familiar with but Nick and Ben are the Gurus here so just be patient.

 

Just one final thing

Last night something came to my mind

You said you had Scotland out side P3D and also have installed UK2000 airport but I wonder is this affects somehow and UK installer cannot detect Scotland outside P3d... and then the setting in their control panel is not working...

Now that you have both in P3D why don't you install again UK 2000 and run the configurator and test?.. Just an idea.

 

Good luck

 

Best regards,

Carlos

Hello,

 

I struggled with that screen shot, the coordinates are blurred and difficult to read.

I can tell that you are not seeing EU Scotland at all.

 

This is my best guess.

Your shot

Looks like this:

I think that the best option would be to uninstall what you have so far added and instead, install the products to Prepar3D v4 Folder.

Scotland now inside the Prepar3D v4 folder and the problem is still there, so I presume this

means it is nothing to do with the new Installation method. Where do I go from here?

 

Hello Nick

 

I have tried uninstalling and putting Scotland inside the Prepar3D v4 folder but it was

exactly the same. I'm sure it is EU Scotland I am seeing because, I live up here and recognise all the local

features - no question. In my opinion it is definitely EU Scotland with patches of desert showing through.

Also, my shots look the same as those taken by Carlos apart from the Desert patches. For instance, I also

see the ugly grey patch pointed out by Carlos in his second post.

Maybe what you are seeing is not EU Scotland?

 

If it is any help, the coordinates of that photo are LAT N57 degrees  35.72'  LON W3 degrees  40.49'.

 

Maybe I should go back to FTX Central? Is it still available to download?

 

Do I wait for the developers, or have they drawn a blank hence your recommendation? - I really don't know what to do anymore.

 

Thanks and regards

 

Clive.

Hello,

 

I added EU Scotland to the scenery library and started P3D v4, so I must assume that is what I am seeing.

 

The only difference that I can discern is that I installed my version some time ago and with FTX Central.

 

I cannot guarantee that the files I have are the same as those you have if you installed it with Orbx Central.

 

I will however install EU Scotland using Orbx Central into the P3D v4 Orbx Library and see what happens.

Hello.

 

Conclusion: Orbx Central is not installing the full product.

 

Evidence: EU Scotland as installed into an Orbx Library by Orbx Central.

I have brought this to the attention of the Orbx Central team.

Hey Nick

 

Fantastic, now I know I am not going mad!!!

I guess the developers will now look at finding a solution?

Thanks very much for your help !! :D

I wonder if this problem exists with other regions?

Also, just curious why nobody else has had this problem?

 

Anyway, i'm off for a cup of tea and a doughnut.

 

Best regards

Clive.

Hello Clive,

"no one else" does not now include me.:)

 

Here is what should be a temporary fix for you.

I have assumed that you have kept the installation inside the P3D v4 folder.

 

Unzip the attached file and copy the whole ORBX folder into your P3D v4 folder.

It should replace the missing files for you.

 

If the installation was in an Orbx Central Library, then the ORBX folder could be copied into the

EU Scotland folder in that.

 

Do let me know if it works.

Hi Nick

 

I had actually moved all my Orbx stuff outside of the simulator again as it

didn't seem to make any difference to the problem and I wanted to move to 

the new system to ease the simulator update process!

 

Anyway, I tried copying the files you supplied to EU Scotland in the Library

and the problem was still there unfortunately.

 

After I installed them I checked the file count in the EU Scotland folder and it

showed 6,382 Files in 34 folders which is quite different to the numbers shown

in your screenshots above.

 

Do you want me to try anything else?

 

Cheers, Clive.

Hello,

if you select just the four FTX_EU_SCO folders you should have the same file count as in my screen shot.

 

Four FTX_EU_SCO folders =4

three have a scenery and a texture folder =6 and one has only a scenery folder =1

7 + 4 = 11

 

If you do that and not select the entire installation, how many files and folders?

Hi Nick

 

6170 Files and 11 folders, seems to be 3 files short!

Could you possibly send me a zipped copy of all four folders then I know I have exactly the same as you.

I take it this fix worked for you?

 

Cheers, Clive.

The missing files are only Loch Ness monster, unlikely to affect your landclass.

Try copying the files I sent you again.

Hi Nick

 

I know you're a very busy man and I don't want to take up any more of your time!

Now that I know there is a recognisable problem, maybe it is best for me to just

wait for the developers to find a permanent solution - I'm sure I can put

up with the patches for a while, knowing a solution will come.

 

Obviously, if you need me to do anything to help pinpoint the problem further

please just ask.

 

Thanks again for your help!

 

Best regards

Clive.

I broke mine trying to fix yours but have found a quick fix.

 

Either uninstall with Orbx Central and reinstall with FTX Central or

install to the P3D folder with Orbx Central and then verify files with FTX Central.

You can find FTX Central here.
