P3D v4 Oakland International Airport

Thanks for the kind words Clutch, until I started making this scenery I had no idea just how much work goes into it or how complex the process is. I truly don't know how some developers can be so prolific o_O

But as you say it's a labor of love, because you have to love it in order to put up with this kind of self-torture :)
 
Hi @embeee I want see your webpage http://www.cloudberrysim.com/ , but it is a blank page and this appears to me:

Yeah there's nothing up there yet. Been trying to get it to redirect to my Simmarket page but doesn't seem to work.
 
Hi, I've been working on the FTX NorCal compatibility issue and dynamic lighting. Both are looking promising, but I haven't been able to do as much work as I had hoped because of my day job and other life events. Will certainly let you know when I've pushed out an update.
 
Hey @embeee !

Just got your scenery today, have been looking for a decent Oakland for some time :)

Unfortunately I got these weird texture bugs around the airport, displaying partly night textures. I am using ORBX openLC North America, but not ORBX NorCal. Had these around FlyTampa Toronto as well, where it has been a buggy landclass of the airport, which FlyTampa admitted. But someone could solve it by deactivating the Airport LC file.



Tried to deactivate the photo/LC for Oakland, but then the ground completely disappeard :D

Also, is there any chance to reduce the exclude in a future build, because the autogen around the airport is disabled in quite a huge area ^^

Looking forward to your reply and thanks in advance for the help :)
 
Hello, thanks for your purchase and sorry about the issues. It sounds very strange indeed, especially since there aren't actually any exclude files except for the two landclass files (LC_1518.bgl and CVX_KOAK.BGL). Disabling those will completely restore the surroundings. The photoreal file only covers the airport itself and doesn't alter the surroundings, so that shouldn't be the culprit either. I know that Orbx users sometimes get those black textures in different parts of the world, and that has happened to me too though never at Oakland. It's usually resolved by reinstalling the Orbx product(s) or disabling Frozen Water in the FTX Global Vector configurator tool.

Could you make sure that you've disabled both LC files and see what happens? If the problem still persists, the only way to figure out what's causing this is by disabling and reenabling each bgl file at a time in the Oakland scenery (a faster way to do that is to disable half of the bgl files and then half of those etc.). That is unfortunately the only way to know which specific file is causing this. Also, just to be sure: does that area look normal when you completely disable the Oakland scenery?
 
Thanks for the quick help!

Not using Vector (not even installed :D ) but will try to disable the LC files once I've landed on my current flight.

When I disable the OAK scenery, the area is completely normal indeed :)

Back with the results :)

So deactivating the 2 files you mentioned (CVX_KOAK.bgl and LC_1518.bgl) solved the problem of the black textures, so that's looking good now again.

However, the huge exclude around the airport somehow remains... :/ Had Flightbeam KSFO active as well on the other side, but no change when I deactivate that scenery.
As mentioned before, completely normal autogen when I deactivate KOAK.

Thanks for the help! :)

Great to hear that the black squares are gone, but the exclude issue is very weird. As I mentioned there shouldn't be any other excludes in this scenery, so I don't know what's causing that. I just disabled both landclass files on my computer and have full autogen around the airport. The only way to figure out what's causing this is to disable each specific bgl file in your Oakland folder using the method I described. It's tedious but the only way to locate the culprit.
 
Okay....so now something weird happened, even with KOAK deactivated, there is no autogen in the whole SF Bay Area anymore :D I guess something is messed up in my sim there, which doesn't have to do anything with KOAK ^^ Will have a look at it :)

EDIT: Deactivated ORBX openLC North America and had full autogen again, so something is broken in there.
