I thought we were talking about KSEA?

We are. You said:
The problem is that there are virtually no mesh-editing tools for X-Plane.
I brought up the other airports to make the point that other developers are and have been producing other airport scenery that have custom meshes that blend in seamlessly with Orbx products while lacking whatever mesh editing tools X-Plane is lacking. As a potential customer, it confuses me that other developers are able to do this, but your post implies that you feel it is not possible, or that it may only be possible after testing this new tool you plan to use on EPKK.

If we are talking about KSEA then mentioning other airport has no point as KSEA has a very specific mesh design. This could have been done with X-Plane default mesh making the airport almost unflyable, hence a custom mesh design has been created for that airport. As a confirmation of that fact - I assume that other airports from the package (Paine Field, Boeing Field) work correctly?

EPKK has the new technique already implemented and we are working closely with the author of the tool to make it as universal as possible, perhaps fixing most mesh-related X-Plane problems in the future.

Or perhaps we are simply too stupid to do that correctly (this is also the possibility) :wink: .

Hello Stan,

In regards to the Seattle airports mesh issues, it has nothing to do with ORBX or any other addon. The mesh issue that we are having a problem with, is present in default X plane with only your Seattle airport installed. Most noticeably around KBFI and KRNT. This is not something that other developers need to work around. I am guessing that the issue is mostly is likely excludes or Flattens added. Or something in the way your airport mesh is laid out. It is not present in your P3d version. My suggestion is possibly re-compiling without any kind of flatten for these airports in Xp. The default terrain is flat enough where we don’t have any issues, so we shouldn’t need to flatten from you guys, to flatten the runway that’s already flat. This is actually a really huge issue for locals like myself who know the terrain. Not only that but it makes for vertical roads, stretched weird terrain, valleys that aren’t supposed to be there, etc. I have had to uninstall the Seattle Airports in XP because of this ugly booger of terrain distortion. I was hoping that you guys would take a look at it sooner, but it’s been well over a year now. It’s really sad because the airports are amazing I love them in P3d.

Sorry, but you need to contact the store, from which you bought the scenery.

I'm afraid we are not able to provide the compatibility with Ortho4XP at the moment.

OrthXP gives you orthos+mesh.
Our products give you otrhos+mesh.

If you install OrthXP our custom mesh will not be visible. The only solution would be to compile the OrthoXP data including our custom mesh data.

Ive bought this along with Seattle City, New Your city, Miami city and hicago city - When I go to run the .exe files i keep getting an 'unknown decompression error' on every single one and have to abort the instalation - i also have NY airports 1 and 2 and Chicago airports and they installed fine.

Any ideas would be much appreciated

Hi Simon, it looks like a corrupt download. Please try redownloading the installer again. It can be also done via other web browser or download manager. It might be that something is wrong with the files that you are downloading from your shop, but in such case you need to contact with your shop directly. We are fully sure that our installer files, which were sent to our vendors, work properly.

Simon, simply try downloading the file again.
You may also use any download manager if your connection is not stable. This often helps.
