active KRDD ground smoothing elevation issue

Recommended Posts

Yes I do. I activated KRDD cvx from Northern California scenery that did not help.

I think the scenery needs a cvx file?

Apparently not, judging by my screen shot?

What do you use to update the navdata?

I added a CVX file compiling from the KRDD afcad (and removed ADEX_FTX_NCA_O85_Benton_CVX.bgl )

ground back to normal.

Can you explain why I did not see the same anomaly?

I update each nav cycle https://www.aero.sors.fr/index.html

Their files could have a different elevation that will conflict with your scenery unless your scenery has a CVX , elevation and flatten, file.

Hi guys, 

 

Like most products of the same vintage, KRDD was designed to work properly with the corresponding region installed - in this case, NCA. As such, the KRDD airport flattens/elevation info draws from the NCA version of the airport that sits underneath, rather than having it's own unique CVX. It is purely coincidence that the airport also works easily with the default (ie, if you don't have NCA installed). Because you are calling on a third-party file that has conflicting elevation, and because you disabled the NCA files that have an impact on the HD version of the airport, this is likely why you had the conflicts. 

 

Cheers,

Jarrad

I do have Northern California installed.... my first post I said I disabled the NCA afcad and cvx files to try to find a solution and the only solution found is creating my own cvx file for krdd

Sorry, I couldn't ascertain from your first post whether the issues were there before or after you removed the files. In that case, it will be a simple case of conflicting elevation between your navdata and our scenery - your own custom CVX file has solved the issue. Whilst I haven't tested with the same nav updates you have, I suspect copying the relevant CVX file from NCA over to the KRDD scenery folder would have the same result. 

 

Cheers,
