Hello
In the mail I found a link from simmarket about the new seychelles version. I uninstalled the older version 2.0 via uninstaller. I installing version 2.1 and then I have a problem with the runway elevation of the following airports. FSFA, FSPL, FSSC, FSSD.
At these airports the airplane is on a semi-transparent runway 10 feet above the real runway. At FSSF the plane is 200 feet above the surface. You can see the pics
Where could be the problem? Thanks for answer

You probably have another add-on that includes AFD / ALT files for those airports. Do you use a mesh add-on like FS Global or an ftx add-on or something like that?

Yes, in my fsx I have FTX global. But it did not have issues with version 2.0. Typically, it helps the ftx vector airport elevation correction but version 2.1 does not react with it.

We flattened a few airports because we had other users with problems using additional addons like ftx. Did you make sure to completely uninstall the previous version? (remove ALT files as well)

Hello Thorsten

As I said i uninstalled via uninstall seychelles so I thought everything was ok. But FSX has told me that he is missing some seychelles scenery. In the FSX addon scenery I found that fsdg seychelles is still in the list even though it was not physically in the FSDG directory. So I deleted it from addon scenery via delete scenery. FSX has not started any error messages, so I installed the version 2.1 with which I have the problem.
So how to proceed and where to find the elevation data because in folder FSX-scenery I have nothing to do with seychelles found.

I also wrote on Simmarket for version 2.0 install, because I unfortunately deleted it in my PC. They said they no longer have it just 2.1, that I should contact you with this request.
I was thinking about reinstalling back to 2.0 or it would not solve my problem... what do you mean

I don't think you have to go back to v2.0, even though there are no big changes in the FSX scenery between v2.0 and v2.1.
Please go to your FSX/scenery/world/scenery folder and look for files named AFX_FS**.bgl.
If there aren't any please copy the attached files into that folder.

We'll check the current installer to make sure those aren't missing on installation.

Hello again...

One more little thing :hihi: ... when I flew in the evening I noticed that the streetlights have rays turned upside down... Can you also solve this detail?

You're right, there's something wrong with those effects. We had that P3Dv4 bug fixed (for some reason they changed the code so a lot of FSX effects were rotated or flipped) but they either changed the code again for v4.1 or the fixed files didn't end up in the new installer.
Either way please use the new sticky to get the correct files:

Hello Thorsten.

I copied the specified fx to effects folder but nothing changed with me - the lamps still shine up

Those fx files have to be copied to the FSDG-Seychelles/effects folder (overwrite existing files) not the P3D/effects folder.

Hello Thorsten

I have FSX not P3D. In it is FSX / FSDG / FSDG-Seychelles / ... and there are... scenery, textures, warrants, FSDG-Seychelles map JPG. Nothing else. Folder effects are missing.

Thanks, I missed that. Looks like when we fixed the P3Dv4 effects the new textures ended up in the FSX version. Please copy the attached bmp files into your FSX/effects/texture folder to fix the problem.
