Please verify that you are using the files in my dropbox link only and that you disabled the 3 files in the SSJ KDTW scenery folder as specified above. I have integrated the SSJ KDTW gates into my AFCAD and there should not be any duplicate jetways unless you are using a third sorry GSX file.

I figured out my problem. 2 issues I had:

1: Your fix is NOT on top of the first fix posted in this chain. I had thought that you were building on that earlier post. Removing those 2 files from the top of this chain got rid of the GSX jebridges.

2: When I installed KDTW, I hadn't realized that the installer put an addon.xml file in the Prepar3d v4 Add-Ons folder. I had simply added the scenery via the Lorby tool to the scenery.cfg. Hence the sim was missing the references to the effects and scripts. Moving that addon.xml folder for KDTW to my Prepar3d v5 Add-Ons folder solved that. I of course removed the scenery section of the file as I prefer all my sceneries to be from the scenery.cfg file for proper layering. This solved the black highways and parking garages, as well as the showing of the original ground textures here and there.

My only issue now is at night. the runway lighting is showing as giant orbs. Some of the blue taxiway edge lighting has issues as well. Anyone know how to solve these lighting problems?

Hi all

The scenery is now functional with no black textures, However the Lights do seem somewhat blocky and I seem to have dual sets of papi's at RWY 21L the PAPI's quickly disappear when coming close. also i have no PAPI's at Rwy 22L what could be the problem here?

That fixed the terrain all over the airport, but anyone have any luck getting over taxiway F? My airplane goes nuts whenever I try to.
It's so annoying on VATSIM because I have to avoid it.
