Add on scenery issue

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a minor but annoying problem. I recently installed a freeware add-on airport for Malaga (LEMG). The airport installs fine and appears normally within the sim (FSX-SE) but the default map still shows all of the airport details for the original stock FSX airport (i.e. runways 14/32 instead of 13/31) and when you select a parking position the plane usually ends up half in a building.

I also noticed that on my Flight Sim Commander map the details are also of the stock airport.

 

I am no expert with the scenery cfg file but I looked in there and as far as i can tell the entry for the Malaga scenery looks ok (points to the right location and is the same format as all the others).

 

I am guessing that it is still reading the original AFCAD file but I dont know where that is or how to get the sim to read the correct, active, one.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks MB. Should have said that I had already run the db manager after installing the add-on, and it still shows the stock details.

Somehow the Sim is displaying the add-on visually in the sim but using the details (Rwy, parking etc) of the stock airport.

It seems alos that FSC is reading the stock values.

Sounds a bit as though it might be an AFCAD thing??     :huh:

 

Google gave me these, which might perhaps be pertinent:

Hope it helps....?

Are you sure there are no other add-on scenery for Malaga on your computer.. 

 

I had a similar experience with ESSB where a correction to the AFCAD to align the airport with a photo scenery refused to show up in FSX.

 

After some digging it turned out that Traffic X from Just Flight had installed a whole bunch of extra AFCADs that were located above the Add-on Scenery folder in my scenery library, thus taking priority over the correction I was trying to install..

Thanks for the suggestions, I do have My Traffic installed and from memory it is higher in priority than my airports (at work at the moment so can't check).

but sounds like a good possibility.

Thanks Stu, I moved "My Traffic" down the priiorty under my add-on airports and that has resolved the issues.

 

Many thanks
