    FSXA Blurred GP Gate Signs

    Well thanks for all your info and guidance but after trying everything, and I mean everything, nothing seems to work very well. I have tried all your suggestions but the flickering textures are still flickering, but only during movement of the aircraft. I guess that I will have to live with it...

    FSXA Blurred GP Gate Signs

    Don I did not reference P3Dv4 but P3Dv3.4. Does this offset parameter still apply to my version (3.4) and if so where and how do I apply it?

    FSXA Blurred GP Gate Signs

    Yes Don the airport is flattened to ARP elevation and I have tried compiling as you suggested but the shimmering still exists. As a point of interest when I copied the airport folder (ENGM) to P3Dv3.4 there was less shimmering but other than that everything was fine. many thanks once again to...

    FSXA Blurred GP Gate Signs

    I find that mipmaps are incorporated in my texture. Using the P3DSDK Environment SDK/Image Tool I reduced the mipmaps from 8 to1. I then used the new texture in my project. The Ground Signs now appear to shimmer at a distance but then the shimmer disappears when really close. Thanks for your...

    FSXA Taxi signs not showing at LFPG

    I am now working on the stock file for LFPG and the same problem occurred. After some trial and error I discovered that the taxi sign limit is is 971. Due to extensive real life development at LFPG there is a requirement for additional taxi signs. Is there any way that these could be made available.

As to the present situation, I was trying to update a non-stock airport file which has no exclusions but have now reverted to using a P3Dv3.4 stock file, will see how I progress but...

    FSXA Taxi signs not showing at LFPG

    I am doing some work to update LFPG (Charles De Gaulle) airport to bring it up to date with the airport charts. Everything was progressing fine until the last hurdle. No taxiway signs are showing in FSX. I am sure that somewhere along the line, after frequent compiles and visits to this airport...

    FSXA Problem with stock airport revision

    I am having some problems with a revision of the airport LOWI Innsbruck for FSX. Using the Stock FSX airport I have saved this to a Project file. I then changed the altitude from1900ft to the correct one of 1907ft. I see, in the newly created scenery file there is no cvx file but the airport...
