Elevation Issue

Postby Jerrymc3 » Thu Sep 17, 2020 7:04 pm

I'm using Aerosoft Aspen in P3Dv4.5 When I choose Go to Airport/KASE and it loads the airport my plane is at least a hundred feet above ground. Ctrl-Z shows the planes elevation correct according to Aspen charts and slewing down doesn't move the plane. I'm also using Orbx Global Vector and I ran the elevation correction tool. The only way I could correct the problem is by re-installing Aspen but when I turn off and restart my computer the problem is back again.

@ Jerrymc3 ,

If you disable the new airport.
Re-boot PC.
Start P3D and load the default Aspen is it ok?

Apparently all my Colorado payware airports have elevation issues; KASE, KDEN, KEGE, KTEX. At Telluride the plane was underground. Disabling them and then re-enabling them put the plane back on the ground. I notice that FTX OLC America is at the top of the Scenery Library under World Scenery but at the bottom of the Addons Library. My Orbx airports are not add-on.xml but FlightBeam Denver is but still had an elevation issue. Would dropping down Orbx OpenLC with Addon Organizer solve the problem?

Jerry,

You might want to talk to ORBX about those elevation issues. I use FreeMeshX and do not have those problems.

@ Jerrymc3 ,

Maybe pilots with your scenery will reply here to offer first hand information.

I have Orbx Global, Orbx KEGE and FlightBeam KDEN and all are OK with P3Dv4.5HF3.
