Operating system:  Windows 10 1903

Simulator:  Prepar3d v4.5HF2

Screenshot:  Will come later

Issue:  Black Textures


Hi guys,


I will post screenshots later in the evening but I wanted to give you heads up on what is going with these Black Textures.


Here is how I started


1) 100% Clean P3D4hf2 Sim (all programfiles, appdata local/roaming P3D directories clean and rebuilt from Clean Sim install).


2) Visit KCJR Airport (Culpeper Airport)- everything is base P3D


3) Install Orbx Global and Library into the SIM root.


4) Verified Global and Library Installs


5) Sync Simulator from Orbx Central


6) Visit KCJR - Black patch around the airport


7) Then I was like maybe I need to install Vector - Installed Vector, verified install, and sync simulator again


8 - Vector is installed and Ran the Vector Config Tool.


9) Visit KCJR - see black patch right outside the airport


10) I was like maybe if I install Orbx Global Airport freeware b/c it has Neil's improved KCJR (he created this for me by request - always grateful to him).


11) Ran Vector Config tool 


12) Visit KCJR - same black patch - I am like WTF


13) Now I install openLC NA - verify install and run vector config tool


14) Go to KCJR and viola no black patch.


So openLC is filling in some patches when only global is installed - this is the problem and solution and at the same time.  So if a user doesn't have openLC then the black textures are there in those areas.


I will post all screenshots later in the evening today; just getting little worn out for discovering these little quirks lol.  






PS -


Below is an observation from completely different clean install of the sim only about getting global installed outside the sim


Another strange bug is during another SIM clean install - if you install Global as first addon into sim and then Orbx Central ask you to install Libraries - and if you choose outside the sim - then global is installed outside the sim at the same time.  Weird logic bug

Very confusing - I did another clean reinstall - and this time I did notice that the GA Global airport pack's KCJR was causing the black texture - it is calling a city texture right next to - I even saw that in google maps real satellite image.


KCJR is requesting openLC NA texture - so that solves the problem.
