  1. That’s great news, Matteo! KVNY is one of my favorite airports. I’m specifically interested in KBUR add-on because this is included. Thanks!
  2. @carlosqr @Matteo Veneziani Compatibility was already set to SCA. I turned off dynamic trees and no change with my scenery issues. I decided to upgrade to Prepar3d v5, and everything is fixed! No change in the graphics settings or Orbx addons I have installed. It just magically works. And v5 has a fairly large performance improvement for me, so overall this was a good move. Thank you both for helping me out. Much appreciated! Have a fantastic weekend!
  3. @carlosqr On your first question, I had most of my Orbx scenery already downloaded so it was easy to install back to the simulator. Object Flow is installed. I did an uninstall/reinstall to see if that helps, but same issue. Nothing third party addons at all. Just vanilla P3D and Orbx software. Nothing else at all. Seems like a layering issue. I disabled all addons, except for Global Base Pack, Vector and OpenLC North America because they were not an option to disable. San Diego looked correct for mostly basic scenery and Vector roads looked good. Then I added back NA Southern California and it still looked correct, Vector roads were there and the Balboa Park bridge was there. Then I added back Orbx San Diego and it was a mess, the bridge had parts from the two sceneries combined, one being the black bridge and the other white. The black part is not even level, just parts of it sticking up. I took another screenshot to show you. Also you can see another bridge at the top of the pic, it doesn't quite connect to the road and looks awful. Vector roads are missing too. The whole city looks like this. I also tried uninstalling OpenLC NA, Vector, NA Southern California, and San Diego. Then installed it all back, still looks the same. in Orbx Central, I've run the Vector airport elevation tool, Sync Simulator, and re-applied the insertion points. Nothing seems to fix this.
  4. So I thought I would take another stab at this, after taking a break from the frustration for a few months. Uninstalled Prepar3d entirely, deleted AppData folders, ProgramData folders, Documents folders, Program Files folder, everything! Also uninstalled all addons, which were just REX products, but I kept most Orbx software in my library. I did uninstall Global Base, Vector, OpenLC NA, and Libraries, so I could install into the Prepar3d folder later instead of my external library. Installed Prepar3d from scratch. Launched and everything was basic back to vanilla. I then launched Orbx Central, and downloaded Global Base, Vector, OpenLA NA, and Libraries, into the main Prepar3d folder. Then I went through all my other scenery and installed it back from the already downloaded Orbx Library folder then ran the Vector airport elevation tool. Launched Prepar3d again, and the scenery is STILL jacked up!! Looks at the attached image of the Balboa Park bridge in San Diego, what is that?? And the freeway is missing. And some other screenshots of roads and bridges in San Diego. This does not just affect San Diego. I have nothing but Prepar3d installed completely from scratch, and Orbx software. I'm just so frustrated. Does anyone have any suggestions at this point? I'm just lost. I've sunk so much money into loads of Orbx Addons, would love to get it working.
  5. Hi Carlos, After I uninstalled Orbx Central, I deleted the scenery and addons files then launched Prepar3d and confirmed the scenery was back to defaults and addons was empty. After that I installed FTX Central and updated the scenery, which all looks correct now. I will once again delete the scenery file, let Prepar3d rebuild, verify the installs (although the are freshly downloaded) then I’ll run FTX Central again. Will let you know the result. Thanks! -Dan
  6. I uninstalled Orbx Central and re-installed FTX Central. Downloaded the global products, NA OLC and San Diego & Santa Barbara airports. Scenery looks normal now and my library order is correct. Something with Orbx Central was messing my library order up really bad. So I flew out of SBA and into some random area to find black empty scenery patches now. I made some progress but now a new issue. I guess I just can't catch a break here.
  7. I've tried syncing the simulator from Orbx Central, reordering insertion points then back to normal (Airports & Regions on top & Global OpenLC underneath that), verifying addon files, uninstalling/reinstalling Orbx Central, but my scenery order is still out of whack as you can see in my screenshots above. I have no idea what's going on. Here's a screenshot of how horrible Santa Barbara looks. There are airport objects but the city is flat and low res. This is a scenery I purchased and installed. I also uploaded a copy of my central.log file for review. Is something going on with this version of Orbx Central where it is not prioritizing the software correctly? central.log
  8. Hi Carlos, Unfortunately this did not fix my issue. I also tried uninstalling/reinstalling Orbx Central but same issue. I can see my scenery order seems incorrect compared to how it used to be, but most entries are greyed out and I can't prioritize them correctly. Very frustrating. Thanks for the suggestions. I'm open to any other ideas you may have. -Dan
  9. Hi Carlos, Thank you for being so helpful. I will try this tomorrow and post my results. I had the same experience as you, I opened my sim the other day to find everything a mess. Kinda a bummer because I just bought a couple more Orbx add-ons, but now I’m focused on fixing my scenery before I enjoy flying. Thanks again! Cheers -Dan
  10. For reference, this is how my scenery was prioritized. Some of it looks a bit weird to me but I don't know which order it should go in. Much of it is greyed out and can't be re-ordered anyway.
  11. I should also mention, I have FS Pilots Global Next Generation installed. No other addons aside from Orbx. This is a totally clean install from scratch. I ran the Vector config tool for airport elevations, check the configurations for other Orbx addons and nothing jumped out that would fix this.
  12. Not sure what happened, I took several months off Preapr3d then coming back noticed a major version update to ORBX Central and some scenery updates. I updated everything, launched Preapr3d and started a flight out of San Diego. Something was very wrong with the scenery now. It seems like Vector is no longer installed, the roads are just low res satellite imagery and I thought there was more building and tree density, even the cars were missing. I switched to another city and looked similar. The satellite ground imagery looked a little weird and low-res as well, maybe only because nothing else was covering it. I checked my Graphics settings and they're mostly at the top if not maxed out, which my system can handle. I decided maybe time for a clean install with Prepar3d v4.5 and fresh Orbx package installs. I uninstalled everything, deleted any remaining folders for Preapr3d in Program Files, AppData and ProgramData. Nothing was left except Orbx Central. Started fresh and got it all installed, sadly my scenery looks the same, way off. I'm not sure if my scenery is not ordered correctly, I let Orbx Central arrange it and I even tried legacy mode but same issue. Any ideas? Thanks!! -Dan
  13. That’s outstanding!! So excited to see what’s to come. Thanks John!!
  14. I know Hawaii region was scrapped a while back due to complications, but perhaps it could be revisited now with TE? Hawaii would be a hot selling region!
