TerraFlora invisible

Recommended Posts

I have a strange problem with TerraFlora. After installing, all autogen trees have disappeared. After uninstalling, the default trees are visible again. I installed and uninstalled several times without any luck. I also ran the DX10 scenery fixer but it didn't change anything.

I noticed the installation only takes a couple of seconds, seems strange with the presumably large amount of tree textures...could that be the problem?

 

I'm using FSX SP2, DX10 (with Steve's DX10 Scenery Fixer) and basically all Orbx ftx products (no Orbx HD Trees)

Could you post a screenshot showing this issue please, away from an airport in a location that would normally be densly populated with autogen tree's.

Okay, yes there should be a thick pine forest there. I'll forward this thread to Greg as he is better placed to answer possible install issues.

Hi Marcel,

 

Can you check your folder fs\scenery\global\scenery? There should be a series of files with the name vegetation*.bgl. Can you list those for me or show me a screenshot?

 

Also have a look at the fs\scenery\global\texture folder and see if you have files with veg*_TF.dds in the name (they should be the most recently modified.

 

Cheers,

 

Greg

Thanks Marcel,

 

That's very helpful. Can you try something for me?

 

Close FSX and rename the file FTX_vegetation_FULL.bgl as FTX_vegetation_FULL.BGL.OFF

 

Then restart and see what happens.

 

Cheers,

 

Greg

Unfortunately, this didn't work.I also disabled/enabled some of the other vegetation scenery files (listed above).

BUT I discovered something interesting. It seems that the autogen is visible on some parts of the Orbx Global Base scenery. Here are two screenshots (one near Araxos Airport, Greece) and the other at the default Friday Harbor scenery:

 

(some autogen vegetation)

(no autogen vegetation)

All Orbx sceneries are up-to-date though...I'm going to do some further tests of enabling/disabling some of the sceneries to see if it helps.

Thanks Marcel,

 

Can you download this file and copy into the 'fs\scenery\global\scenery\' folder? Overwrite the existing file and re-enable the FTX_vegetation_FULL.bgl file.

 

TerraFlora

 

Cheers,

 

Greg

I'm having a similar problem, however I do not use Orbx for my autogen. I do have the FTX NA airports, but for trees I only use Aime Leclercq's freeware trees. I have my default flight set at Bauerfield Airport in Vanuatu in the South Pacific (which is surrounded by trees), and upon installing, there are no trees at all on any of the islands.

Edit... I "borrowed" that file you suggested on page 1, and it WORKS! I can now see Terra Flora. Might I add, the trees look like realistic heights now, not super tall like default and many others. No further issues here.

Hi Greg, I had the same problem yesterday with the trees being invisible in fsx accel but after installing your TerraFlora file it has all come to life again. I don't understand your ref to re-enable the FTX_vegetation_FULL.bgl file. Does this only apply to Marcel's problem?

Thanks

James

You are right. It's related to the process of finding out why the trees were invisible in my sim. We just tested if disabling the FTX_vegetation_FULL.bgl would solve the problem. However, it didn't seem to be the cause. That's why Greg told me to enable it again. You don't have to do anything.
