    This scenery contains modellib.bgl which conflicts as per Asobo's recommendations. I'll leave a link to a MSFS forum discussion about what it is and how to fix it. It would mean a lot if you could fix it please, because it really is a great scenery. Terrific job, thank you!

    Thank you ORLMitch

    Someone brought this to my attention on another one of my sceneries. I hadn't heard of this causing any issues, but I will take a look.

    It's kind of hit or miss whether it will cause crashes or not, but it's better to be safe than sorry. I've had a couple of other airports and sceneries that use that bgl file and while it didn't crash, it would cause lots of lag and would increase loading times for the sim.

    You do amazing work, man. I showed a few people who live on the island a screenshot of the hangar and airport and they thought it was a real picture. Absolutely stunning.

    Thank you! glad you can enjoy it! you should try it in VR! ( though you'd need a pretty beefy PC to really enjoy it nice and crisp) I have a quest 2 and an RTX 2070 I can get it to look good. but not great. so might need to update the old hardware...

    When I downloaded the folder, the catalina-foxtrot folder was zipped within the initial folder. Is it correct to take this one out and put it in the Community folder separately?

    the zip file should contain the foxtrot-catalina folder. the proper folder structure should be:
    Community/foxtrot-catalina
    and if you added the aerial folder:
    Community/kavx-aerial

    excellent scenery at the airport and at Avalon. Perfect for the new Grumman Goose add-on and the Catalina seaplane add-ons. Love the slope on the KAVX runway, as well.

    This address is on MSFS forum talking about the Grumman Goose. It's by OZx.

    There is a lot of discussion there about it. I read it's also available on SimOuthouse. If you have an account - http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/local_links.php?catid=243
    Doing the liveries has a learning curve, but if you can make scenery, you should have no challenges.

    Hi everyone. I downloaded the file, put it in my community folder and still doesn't show up in the sim. I made sure I chose the right file, and backed it up with the link given from the sim. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Has this been sorted? few questions if not:

    do you have other mods that work in that community folder?
    if this is your only scenery are you sure you are in the right community folder? https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/content.php?21235-Finding-The-MSFS-2020-Community-Folder

    Hello JosueMejia

    I'm a huge supporter of your scenery but it seems 1.12.13.0 brings something new regarding windsock and create duplicate opposite direction windsocks : https://i.imgur.com/KbbSmCH.jpg

    PS: It happened as well on CottonWood P52 freeware scenery

    Thank you! yea with the USA release its doubled windsocks with any scenery that added one in the correct position. Now that the holidays are over I plan on spending some time getting caught up with some fixes!

    Hi, I love your airports and this one in particular, but since the USA update came out it looks broken with floating buildings and the runway is buried in the terrain. I'm assuming that has to do with the new elevation info. Any suggestions on how to remedy?

    Hi Damour66,
    Thanks for the heads up, if you wouldn't mind emailing me some screenshots @ ([email protected]) of the issues you are seeing? I see some issues on my machine but not the ones you are mentioning. If you could that would aid in the updates I need to make. thank you!

    Removing the folder from Community and copying back in seems to have resolved the issue. Looking great now. thanks!

    Nice and pretty.

    I just had a strange bug with the windsock : https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/runway-at-discretion/331013

    Hi Donquilmi,

    Yes, in the original release the sim had the windsock in the wrong place. I removed that one and added it in the proper place. BUT with the USA update the one added by default has been moved to the correct position, now causing an issue with mine. the Fix for this will be to go in and delete mine now that it is correct. Will update in a future update.

    Thank you for the awesome job you've done with this airport. I would like to suggest however as constructive criticism that you possibly remove the static American flag. IMHO it gives a cheaper look to the scenery when the flag is frozen in the wind. Amazing!

    JosueMejia replied

    Thanks for the feedback MagicHat9, though I very much prefer to leave it as it adds to the overall accuracy of the real world equivalent. Also the flags in all of my sceneries are default flags from the editor named "anim flag" if you take a look at the new Washington monuments added in the latest USA update, you will see that those flags too are static. So I assume that animation will in-fact be added to these flags at a later point. As more animation support and editor support is added I would love to go back and add weather effects on flags and trees as my time allows me.

    Hi Luisfer,
    Are you sure you are in the right community folder? Do you have other mods that work?
    This would be the first case of it not working so I want to be sure you're in the right place. check this out if you need help finding the folder locations:
    https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/content.php?21235-Finding-The-MSFS-2020-Community-Folder

    Mine is not in the appdata folder as I have it in a dedicated SSD drive.

    Looks like the USA update is out today! that is great, but looks like it added some oddities to some of my sceneries. I will do a clean up patch for all my sceneries in the coming days. We still have broken runways in SoCal though... :/
