Two missing Islands (Paxos and Antipaxos) south of Corfu

Post by christian1974 » Sun Nov 15, 2015 10:58 am

Hi Emilios

I still have the problem that the two little Islands Paxos and Antipaxos which are normally located
in the south of Corfu are not there anymore if your Corfu_LC is active in the scenery library.

They are there with stock Corfu, they were there with AS Corfu X but they are not there with
your Corfu anymore.

Please have a look at it....

Does really no one care about this? Is it true? Was it due to a wrong installation? Will it be fixed (if true)? I really wonder, why none of the developers respond to such a big issue presented here...

Yes it would be nice to have these too. They are a wonderful destination for short helicopter/seaplane flights from Corfu.

Hi Guys,

I was also slightly frustrated by the lack of Paxos and Anti-Paxos. I've always fancied having a go at building some scenery for FSX / P3D, so I've had a go at creating some.

They can be found at:

http://www.justwearasmile.co.uk/airbus/Paxos151.bgl
and
http://www.justwearasmile.co.uk/airbus/APaxos151.bgl

They work fine in P3DV3.

You need to put them in the scenery library above the Fly Tampa files.

Regards,

Peter

Dear Peter

Thank you for your effords.
The representation of the Islands is there now.
But as I say it is only the representation as your fix is "only" a photo layer that is layed above the sea.
In the FSX Chart view you can see that the islands still aren´t there.
Furthermore the Islands are totally flat (no mesh).

So this fix only solves the problem that the islands are displayed now.
But they are not phisically there.


In my opionen there are two possybilities that may cause this error:

1) there is a too big exclusion/flatten in FT Corfu_LC
2) the Mesh which comes with FT Corfu_LC is not accurate at this point.

The islands are physically there (see FSX Chart view) when the FT Corfu_LC scenery is disabled.

Unfortunately there has not been an answer by the developers yet...

Hi Christian,

Many thanks for your observations. As you probably gathered, I'm a great fan of Paxos and Anti Paxos - we go there on holiday each year. So it was a bit frustrating when FT's Corfu blotted them out, even if what they blotted out was a an FSX / P3D very poor representation of the two Islands.

I'm always keen to learn, so decided to have ago at building my own Paxos scenery using SBuilderX. I am very much a beginner at scenery building as you can probably gather, but what I finished up with, 'almost' satisfied me. I did get some complicated guidance on how to fix the mesh problem, but decided to stick with what I have.

Hopefully it is only a stop gap before Fly Tampa do a proper fix.

Regards,

Peter

Hi Peter.

My post was not meant to criticise your work. What you did was a good thing. Definitive more than I could do.

I only wanted to point out that FT still have work to do with this problem.

Is there any chance the developers give us a solution for this problem ??

Nearly 3 month without any comments...

Month no 4 without an official solution for the problem.

Maybe there will be one after finishing Amsterdam.

Unzip and drop the file into : "FSX/P3D Root folder\flytampa\corfu_LC\scenery"
replace when asked.

apologies for the latest support reply ever; not sure why it always slipped through.
