The DD scenery I purchased at https://store.x-plane.org

For Allen/Burrows Island scenery I purchased at: https://propstrikestudio.com/

I've also tried disabling the PropStrike Studios scenery but this did not resolve the issue of doubled up aircraft at KSEA.

Again, thanks for looking in to this.

Ok, can you pleae try to install our scenery with "no-statics" option and check if there are no statics indeed? Or maybe if you are trying to install without static planes, you get an error then?

Okay, with statics turned OFF I get no static aircraft at KBFI, KRNT, KPAE, and Auburn airports. However, at KSEA there are lots of static aircraft. What's interesting about the static aircraft at KSEA with statics off is that they are mostly European aircraft: Alitalia, AirBerlin, Air Dolomiti, air A!ps, Air France CRJ 200, SAS, etc. So you see several European turboprops and regional jets that would never be at KSEA in real life. Also, there are very few US aircraft with statics OFF at KSEA. There are a few Delta aircraft, but not a single Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air aircraft.

After the above results with statics OFF, I installed again with statics ON and got all the above type aircraft now overlapping with Alaska and Horizon, etc aircraft. And again, this issue is only at KSEA. All other airports in the DD Seattle airports package behave as expected.

Also, I've experimented with the previous mesh/terrain elevation issue with the objects floating above ground or sometimes sinking below ground. That issue only comes up at KSEA as well. I've not been able to duplicate that issue at any of the other DD Seattle airports.

Thanks again!

Thanks for this report - it's being under investigation.
Can you please send me via Email the screenshots showing all files that are placed in the folders referring to Seattle Airports XP?

Hey there,

first I want to thank your for that awesome scenery. As I saw some more pictures now it seems I am missing some buildings as well.

Taken at KBFI
Image


I already tried :

all install options (static on/off, photo realistic on/off)
disabling KSEA Demo Area
reinstalling X-Plane
using the manual installation
even deleting the X-Plane standard Erath-Nav-Data and reloading it
runway follows terrain off/on
default settings: Number of Objects high, but even with max no buildings

As the airport itself is working fine it's not a big problem for me, it would be just great to see verything of it. Maybe I missunderstood something with the known floating/sinking Buildings problem, but it just looks different from the other pictures here where there was a black spot where the buildings should be.

Thanks in Advance

Julian

Julian, can you please be so kind and point out / mark which buildings are missing? It will be much easier to verify this with my colleagues responsible for this project.

Regarding your product video it seems to be that area (you can see some phototextures and objects, only the production halls and buildings missing):

There are missing buildings in the red area and I think in the blue area as well, but I couldn't find any good video or photo to proof that.

Have you tried to allow XP to rebuild scenery_packs.ini file? If not, please backup your file and allow XP to do this.

Hi. You need to have Seattle City XP package to see city buildings. With the Airports package you get airports only.

Hello,
I recently purchased the Seattle airports xp scenery and when I load up any of the airports there are static aircraft that spawn underneath the aircraft that are supposed to be in the scenery. In simpler form, I get double static aircraft. The static aircraft that randomly spawn are also not the right airlines and just don’t look good in the scenery. I was wondering if there is a solution to this problem?

Thanks,
Matt

It's very strange - some other users reported the problem with doubled aircrafts too but we are not able to reproduce it... We run last version of XP11 (after update) and we do not see any issues. In all LOG or Scenery_packs.ini, that were reported by our users having the same problem, there are no strange entries too. It has to be something related to the other addon or plugin, but frankly speaking so far we were not able to identify any common factor...

I have found the solution to my double static aircraft problem. To fix it I went into world editor and changed all of the gates types at KSEA from Airline to None. the start locations at all of the other airports are set to none and that is why only KSEA has the double static aircraft problem.
