Not when you have spare capacity on your video card, but going over will be very bad. 4K textures in a large scenery can do this to most cards - I have a GTX970 and normally keep textures at one option below maximum.

Jackson - well, it probably depends on how many 4k textures you actually have. They are large enough to limit a texture number a lot when used in a scenery (by 16x if compared to 1024).

If this is a broken archive problem, I don't see any way of solving this without X-Plane.org wishing to reupload the file (it won't be fixed by itself even after day 50). What we can do is you write me an e-mail and we test if the very source file unpacks correctly on your setup. This would make it clear if this is the problem I thought or something else.

I usually do not check other forums for technical support since we have our own support forum for our products (it would simply be impossible to provide support in 10 different places :wink: ).

Hi again,

Do you know if the file has been reuploaded now ? I tried to redownload from the X-Plane.org store and the installer is still not working...

I wonder how long it will take to fix this problem...

Hello Jonathan.
Please contact the store, I can not do anything about that (especially in case of X-Plane.org ).

Actually IMHO the best think you can do would be to ask a complete refund there and use another store like Simmarket or FS Pilot Shop or Aerosoft, which are more cooperative. Anyway I believe X-Plane.org will fix the file as well, just have not idea when it will happen.

I'll follow that advice then, thanks for your help.

Very disappointed by the x-plane.org store. Very unprofessional attitude, considering that selling broken products is mostly harmfull for the developper. Anyway, thanks for your help and your awesome sceneries.

I think in just the same way and I have presented my opinion at the X-Plane.org forum:

http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?sho ... ntry917565
(...) Here comes the question, why do we use X-Plane.org store if it is difficult to cooperate. Simply because XP community is used to it and it generates best sales of XP products. There are many other stores that upload files in hours (rather than days) and provide almost instant support to customers (I wonder how long will it take for X-Plane.org to publish the pink-effect fix). The question is - would you, as customers, be interested in having a much better customer support and create an account at another store or would you rather choose worse support but stay at the same place?

I've just read your post on the org site.

I installed the scenery manually, by using the mac/linux file (i'm running windows). Works just fine.
Is there a difference between those two files ? Or is it just the lack/presence of an installer ?

By the way, did you make any progress on that pink edges problem ? According to your last post on the .org site, you sounded quite close to solving the issue.

Exactly, this is the only difference.

Still figuring out what is going on there.

[edit] The pink problem is now solved - we just need to apply the fixes and upload the update.

A new version of this product (v1.1) has been sent to stores. Changes:

- Pink blur from ground textures removed
- Edge taxiway lights added at KMIA
- Missing textures warnings fixed

Customers should be notified by stores when the new version is available. To update the product, simply download the installer again and install it. You might remove the previous version before (just Miami folders from X-Plane/Custom Scenery) although it should not be required.

Version 1.1 works for me (unpacks fine, no pink anymore). Downloaded from Aerosoft.

Hello,
I bought Miami City XP and NY airports X from the org store, run the executable file and checked scenery_packs.ini to put everything in order. But I'm getting very low quality textures in airports. The example image is from KMIA. I didin't find any options for low or high resolution.

Thanks

Hello,
I also get very low resolution textures.
Why?!
