Potholes with dams or lakes or on a little hill of its own ... they are all over the place.

Vector not installed.

No potholes or water hills without Orbx Africa_LC.

What is interfering where with who ...?

Location please?

 

This one is short finals FNLU (Luanda) ... but dams and lakes around Cape Town are on little hills (don't know how to describe the elevations with water on top) ... when you fly to George (FAGG) you will also see potholes and the mountains have little spike peaks.

Hello Terblanche ,

the problem is as old as the simulator.

It is not the landclass but the included mesh.

 

The airport and water bodies elevations are set by the simulator and unfortunately,

in some areas of the FSX\P3D world, they are not particularly accurate.

Adding a better quality mesh results in the terrain elevation being corrected but the water

and indeed airport elevations remain fixed, resulting in either hills or depressions,

depending on whether the water or airport is too high or too low.

 

There is not a problem if no added mesh is used and the simplest solution will be to

disable the open LC Africa mesh element.

 

Global Vector goes a long way towards correcting these anomalies

Here is a series of images that illustrate the effect.

 

The effect as you see it: Open LC Africa and its mesh active. Note that the airport is also affected.

open LC Africa and default mesh. Note that the airport is also now level.

open LC Africa with Pilot's Global Ultimate mesh, you can see that the anomaly is more pronounced. Note that effect around the airport also.

Open LC Africa, Pilot's Global Ultimate mesh and Global Vector. All is well and indeed there is a previously missing water body.

Here is the P3D default view, no added open LC, no Global Vector and no added mesh.2020-3-28_10-31-8-939.jpg

 

Finally, here is the default view with no Orbx products but with Pilot's Global Ultimate mesh.

Thank you so much Nick ... it makes sense.

How do I "disable the open LC Africa mesh element" ...?

I see this folder:

c:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Orbx\FTX_OLC\OLC_AF_mesh\

 

EDITED: I have FS_Global_NG_FTX installed.

Hello,

as you have it installed inside your P3D  folder, just untick the Orbx!OPENLC_AFRICA_MESH entry.

As illustrated, if you use Pilot's mesh, then you will still see the anomaly.

Will do that ...

In my setup, when I disable the Orbx Africa_LC altogether and it is only default + pilot's mesh, then I don't see any potholes ... ???

Hello,

it's not something I have tried yet but I would think that editing the reference to it out of the 

add-on.xml file in the open LC Africa Library folder will do it.

I don't have it installed that way but if you care to attach the xml file, I can do it for you,

unless of course you are quite happy to do it yourself.:)

Thanks Nick,

 

at this time i have deaktivated the Folder FSGlobal2010 Afrika.

 

Later i can send you the XML file.

 

Is it better to deaktivate fs global mesh Afrika or Orbx Mesh Africa

Hello Frank,

I see that you have Global Vector.

You should be able to use your Pilot's Global mesh with Vector and see none of these anomalies.

That is the ideal solution.

Ok, Thanks,

 

later i will you send the XML file from Orbx LC Afrika.

I have all my Orbx prudukts install outside the P3D Folder.

The only Folder is Orbx Libs. This stay in P3D Folder.

 

where can I find an optimal scenery library to compare my entries.
It's about the Orbx entries where they should be.

 

Frank

Hello,

the correct solution is to have all your other developers' addons at the top of the library.

Orbx Airports next and then Orbx Regions, followed by Orbx open LC.

The Orbx Central Insertion Point tool will do this for you.

Hello, 

thanks.

You can edit out the part highlighted in yellow and save the file.

Or, I think you can just untick open LC Africa mesh entry in the add-ons menu?

i will test it this evening.

Maybe i make a stand allone XML for Africa Mesh to switch it on or off.
