Went on a tour today, testing a new WX Radar unit in my Lear 25. I flight planned IFR from CYYJ to KSEA. When I broke out of the clag (remember this is a WX Radar test, so nasty WX) at approx. 1000' ASL on the ILS for 16C, I was presented by the most unusual sight: KSEA had great big hills at right angles to the runway(s). There was maybe 500 feet of runway, then a monster hill, then another 500' of runway, etc, etc. Needless to say, the TOGA button got used and I was out of there. I flew back to CYVR, landed and shut down the SIM. I thought it was a simple matter of rebooting, reloading and give it another try. But - I decided to check out KSEA before launching. I set the active at KSEA as my departure point and reloaded P3Dv4 and the Lear. Nope! There's like a fifty foot hill not 100' in front of the A/C nose. I'm just getting back into this after a year off and I had reloaded the latest version of P3Dv4. I did not reload the Scenery and the Content, just the Client. Hoping to solve the problem, I downloaded new Scenery files Then I uninstalled the suspect Scenery Files with M/S Programs and Features, shut down UAC, shut down Windoze Defender and NOD32 and re-installed the Scenery. Same thing - hills across the runways at KSEA. Thinking it might be related to the third party (Extreme Prototypes) Lear, I shut down the Scenario, exited P3D, then reloaded the SIM with the P3D Stock Maule on the same departure point. Same thing - big hill! Sorry I can't post pictures. I did capture a few from the ground - I was too shocked to remember Cntl-V or whatever gets you a screenshot from the cockpit. However, I don't have a third party picture host anymore, so no piccies. Anyone else using P3Dv4.3 (see edit notes) and stock scenery? If so, I'd appreciate it if you would load KSEA and report back. I'm cringing at the thought of going to Prepared's forum for a solution. I may just reload ORBX and forget the whole thing. Cheers, March PS: I can PM the pics if anyone is interested.
