    Cayman Islands Freeware Project:

    Latest hobby project that I've spent the last few months working on.

    Have fun and Enjoy!

    *If you experience performance issues while in VR, disable 'High-Quality Anti Aliasing' or switch to openGL. Also try 'motion-reprojection'.

    I think the issue is the ground not being flat. I re-did the taxiway making sure not to cross or get close to the vertices for the outside airport mesh. Still had the same issue. I’ve done 3 other airports with no issues.

    Hard to say only because the ground does not look very steep?

    Usually the problems occur when you have to create taxiways / ramps around grass. But like you said, you've created 3 airports successfully.

    Frustrating because these things take time to create.

    Another 'perhaps this is your issue' ;)

    Based on my similar experiences.

    It's your vertices within your mesh colliding with each other most likely due to duplicate / overlapping. It usually happens when using the 'extrude edges' function. Extrude edges function is best used for outer vertices, this way they can not overlap already existing vertices.


    My workaround was to completely redo everything, and make sure I had enough vertices within.

    Hello Ester,


    Here is a copy of what I use to convert models. Model_Object_Convert.zip


    Basic Instructions:

    You will see that in my dummy tsc file, I simply change line 20 with 'a'. This is so I can convert many models fast without having to change the name constantly within the tsc file.


    After running content_converter, it then outputs the .tmb file to 'C:\Users\Jake\Documents\Aerofly FS 2\3D Model Construction' folder.


    If you still have trouble, just send me a private message and I can help you further.

    You'll want 9-12 to prevent popups. So you may as well have 13, too. 15 is still uploading. I will update when it's done.

    Guess I wrote that wrong. "PS: I have up to the Level 14 files downloaded so far."

    I definitely also have 9-13. :)


    The detail is high enough that I can supplement pilot training in the scenery, and even pre-fly my real-world flights so the real world isn't the first time I've seen something.

    Congrats on the real world flying as well. Sounds like an absolute great experience. Also expensive! ;)

    Fantastic scenery! The image quality is top notch. I started out where you recommend in Deep Creek, it's like a mini Grand Canyon. Much more to be explored. Thank you again for the share.


    PS: I have the Level 14 files downloaded so far.

    Perhaps this is your issue??


    When the 'asphalt_dark_detail_specular' texture is used, it is only suppose to work in conjunction to make your 'asphalt_dark_detail_color' look shiny and reflective. That's why the runway doesn't look dark.


    If you want your runway darker, I would rename 'asphalt_dark_detail_specular' to 'asphalt_dark_detail_color', and reload the texture in AC3D.


    Example:

    You should be able to convert sceneries using Model Converter X

    ModelConverterX | SceneryDesign.org


    Depending on how the original models are formatted and packaged together, most models can easily be converted, some need to be optimized with a bit of texture rework in order for proper conversion.


    Example using Scene Builder Wizard

    FSCloudPort is your only hope for easy single runways.


    If you need to adjust the runway position, just edit the TSC file with the proper coordinates.

    As for other software, you will need 3ds Max or AC3D. The learning curve is a bit difficult in my opinion. I've successfully created an airport runway with taxi ways before but it's easy to forget the proper steps, or run into an issue even with tutorials and video tutorials.

    You had told me to be careful with the AMD X 570 motherboard, that it could look bad. It doesn't fit in my choice for my PC, but tell me: You have the HP Reverb G2 headset, and what motherboard do you have installed in your PC. You see with sharpness in VR with the ...Reverb G2. Which motherboard do you recommend? I have initially selected this one: Gigabyte B450 Gaming X, S. AM4 v2.

    Hello Delfin,

    I have this specific motherboard, https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X570-UD-rev-10#kf

    With this motherboard, I sometimes have connection problems with my HP Reverb G2.

    There are workarounds by adjusting specific settings in BIOS, however still sometimes I get connection problems.

    Usually Aerofly FS2 works in VR, however with the latest BIOS update I can't get MSFS 2020 to work properly with HP Reverb G2.


    In regards to your Gigabyte B450 Gaming X, S. AM4 v2

    I believe this motherboard should not have any problems.
