Recommended Posts

Hi,


 


Just installed PAKT and problem as shown.

I've tried the suggested solutions about extra PAKT BGL files, reinstalled PAKT and Pacific Fjords and have latest versions of all but without success.


 


A search for PAKT in FSX comes up with

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Peter,


 


because of the complex scenery there are 2 levels of ground in PAKT, the "old" and the "new". Your Cessna is placed on the old level. Did you save the Cessna on this place BEFORE you installed PAKT? I did the same, and the plane was sitting on this lowest level. Try a new flight and then the plane will sit on the correct level.

Sorry to reopen bu I have almost the same issue.

 

The following 3 screen have been taken at 3 successive sim restart:

As you can see I got positioned at 3 different levels. Also when my a/c was positioned correctly, all the other apron objects were still buried. 

The suggestions given above did not fix the problem.

 

I think something was wrong with installation. I followed the install order as per sticky in this forum, with a minor deviation due to a problem:

  • Install FTX-PNW

    here the problem, after the installation, trying to switch FTX Central to NA raised an error. Following another post here in the support forum I therefore immediately

  • Install Latest Version of ORBXLibs -> checked FTX Central switched to NA
  • Install FTX-PFJ -> checked FTX Central switched to NA
  • Install FTX-NRM -> checked FTX Central switched to NA
  • Install FTX-CRM -> checked FTX Central switched to NA
  • Install Add-on ORBX Airports (Install Latest Patch for Each)
  • Patch FTX-NA Regions
  • Install Latest Version of ORBXLibs -> checked FTX Central switched to NA
This is a very fresh (2 days) O.S. & FSX Gold installation.. FSX is on a dedicated SSD disk. Only other scenary installed before ORBX where

Any suggestion on hot to proceed?

Run a search in your FSX install directory for any file containing "PAKT" and rename to ".OFF" any file found outside the "ORBX" folder structure. This is the first point of call for anything elevation related, it removes the possibility of another APX messing with the airport level.

Hello,

most the file with PAKT in their name are under the FSX/Orbx folder, except a few fx_Orbx_PAKT_* under FSX/Effects all named.

And if I slew up to the apron level I can then fly away, but the airport is "desert" since most static objects (airplanes, people, etc) are below it.

Also, doing a quick circuit around it, the entire runway/aprons models is not "seating" on the ground, but elevated, floating, by a few meters...

EDIT: just flushing the scenery cache (by just accessing the FSX scenery library screen, making no changhes) seemed to fix all issues! I now span at the correct level and the objects are all at the correct places too!?

I also have this problem.  PAKT is the only ORBX airport I have that this exists.  It should be a simple install, and not more complicated than that.  i don't like messing with the files and shouldn't have to.  Any ideas from the ORBX team? I've tried reinstalling PFJ and PAKT along with their patches to no avail!

I have had this problem once. I do not have SAK or any of it's add-on airports. I flew from FSX default Juneau to PAKT and encountered the problem. I don't think FSX can deal with a flight from FSX default to PAKT. I have flown to PAKT from Stewart or Seattle (in PNW) with no problems.


 


I do not know if this is at all helpful but I reframe from flying between FTX and nonFTX airports.


 


Have a good day,
