@ianj, have you been able to make any updates that fixes the elevation and light issues I'm receiving in P3D V5?

Looking forward to flying to KDTW again.

Regards,
Chris

Not sure if this one was mentioned yet, but I didn't see it.

The "inner/short/front" jetway for A24 is over at the next gate (A20).

I recorded a video to further demonstrate some of the issues I'm seeing in P3D V5. They seem mostly seem to be elevation issues. Towards the end of the video, I changed the time to night to show the bright runway light "orbs."

I hope this helps! Happy to help assist troubleshooting in any way.

yes I see the file, but I don't why it appears so darn dark at night.. like no ramp lights on parking spots.. hmm

so I'm thinking you maybe still have the old add-on.xml perhaps that wasn't uninstalled.
Your full add-on.xml (in the 'Prepar3D v4 Add-ons' folder) should look like this:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on">
  <AddOn.Name>SunSkyJet - KDTW(BETA)</AddOn.Name>
  <AddOn.Description>SunSkyJet - Detroit Metro Airport for Prepar3Dv4</AddOn.Description>
  <AddOn.Component>
    <Name>SunSkyJet - KDTW scenery</Name>
    <Category>Scenery</Category>
    <Path>D:\P3DV4\SunSkyJet\SunSkyJet - KDTW(BETA)\scenery</Path>
  </AddOn.Component>
  <AddOn.Component>
    <Category>Texture</Category>
    <Path>D:\P3DV4\SunSkyJet\SunSkyJet - KDTW(BETA)\texture</Path>
  </AddOn.Component>
    <AddOn.Component>
    <Category>Effects</Category>
    <Path>D:\P3DV4\SunSkyJet\SunSkyJet - KDTW(BETA)\effects</Path>
  </AddOn.Component>
    <AddOn.Component>s
    <Category>Scripts</Category>
    <Path>D:\P3DV4\SunSkyJet\SunSkyJet - KDTW(BETA)\DTW_scripts</Path>
  </AddOn.Component>
  <AddOn.Component>
    <Category>Texture</Category>
    <Path>D:\P3DV4\SunSkyJet\SunSkyJet - KDTW(BETA)\DTW_scripts\yexture</Path>
    <Type>GLOBAL</Type>
  </AddOn.Component>
</SimBase.Document>
Where the <path> tag will have the path to your install (replace 'D:\P3DV4' in this example)

It should look like this:

Thanks Ian! Will you also be fixing the orb like runway lights? They look too big.

Regards,
Chris
Yes, I'll sink them into the ground too

Also anyway you can feed us with some dynamic lighting.. Its like really dark at the North Terminal, almost like there is lighting on.. Reminds me when lights went out that one night at the real one.. How dark it was.. lol
You should have dynamic lighting - in the scenery folder there should be a file called dyn_lights.BGL

Like the other person who posted, I seem to have more issues with this latest build than I did with the one prior. The only real issue I had with the prior build was the runway lights at night. This one, however, I'm having issues with the ground textures (maybe it's a layer thing) and runway night lights. I'm using P3D V5 and it was working very nice with the previous build.
This installer is good for v4 - DTW in P3Dv5 has elevation issues - I'm working on them right now and will build a separate installer. Should be soon.
