seattle airportx is quite good but the night textures are totally wrong--the airport buildings actually glow white at night. i think the light map textures need to be toned down by at least half so that airport buildings blend better with the surrounding environment. the p3dv4 dynamic lights don't help either, the airports just glow white in sea of surrounding darkness and it doesn't look right.

Pitty because it's an otherwise great looking scenery pack....

Can you show it via screenshots?
Is it better with HDR off?
Does it look the same as on the product website: http://www.drzewiecki-design.net/prodSeaADs_X.htm

Hi Martin,
with hdr=on it looks like the shots in the prod page, not blending well with its surrounding autogen. with hdr=off, the blending isn't as bad but the buildings are brighter than what's around it and rooftops are even brighter than the tarmac around it.

night, hdr=off

Hello,

is the issue below been investigated any further? It´s really annoying to make a short hop from KSEA to KBFI and there is no Autogen in the northeast corner of the airport. The scenery is really great and I enjoy it very much, but the missing Autogen is really frustrating. I tried a lot of things (de-activation of files), but it was never really satisfying.

Thank you
Christian


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I have both sceneries, Seattle AirportsX 1.1 and Seattle CityX. When I take-off from KSEA and fly to KBFI a large patch of Autogen at the north east corner of KBFI is gone. It is there when I start P3D from KBFI. I tested all KBFI files and found ot, if I de-aktivate the five KBFI_GND bgl files and the KBFI_TWYLHT.bgl file then everything is OK with the autogen, but KBFI isn´t fully nice. Therefore I assume there is soemthing in these six files that supresses autogen at the KBFI north east corner when taking off from KSEA. Could you have a look at these files? As said - the autogen is there when I choose KBFI as starting point in P3Dv4.

Thank you
Christian"

I updated Seattle Airports X and Seattle City X to 1.2 and also Prepar3D from v4.1 to v4.2. Unfortunately the autogen problem still exists. When loading P3D at KSEA, take off there and fly to KBFI a large patch of autogen is gone at the northeast part of the field. Deleting the files mentioned above isn´t an option, since this makes KBFI look ugly and I like your rendition of this airport (and the rest as well)! Do you have an idea?

Thanks
Christian

I'm afraid Christian that there is no news in this case. We have noted your report and will investigate it as soon as our resources and time allow us.

Paine Fields new terminal uses glass Jetways. The ones in this package are not.

PaineFieldTerminal, the jetways were modeled after initial plans and visualizations - the actual terminal was not constructed yet. In case you have more up-to-date pictures than we do, we would very much appreciate if you could share them with us.

Hi, our official standpoint in such cases is here:

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=422

We can try to ask them, but I cannot promise anything. Please send your order number via Email to marcin@drzewiecki-design.net - it will be easier to check this particular case.

PC Aviator discovered that there was a problem witha folder on the server and their tech guy will be fixing it this evening. However it should already be solved to anyone that has reported a link or file timing out.

As to the pic of the airport, mine does not look that good. I cannot get Seattle Airports to download into the addon scenery file so I can install it in Prepar 3D V3.
Haven't even gotten to 4 yet. Now I have a separate disc with Seattle Airports X.2 & X.3. I use WinRAR for everything no problem. I see these files are big, but after deceompressing tjem through WinRAR there is nothing in the squares to open up.Where do I go from here. I will redownload the Seattle Airport X file.
