Thread: St. Louis Scenery Error

  1. Default St. Louis Scenery Error

    In default downtown St. Louis, Missouri there are some floating windows just west of the arch. It appears there is either a missing building or the windows are there in error. Is there a fix for this?

    Bad textures from Microsoft.

    The quick fix is to navigate to ...\FSX\Scenery\NAMC\texture and remove the following 2 textures.

    StLouis_AdamsMark.dds
    StLouis_AdamsMark_lm.dds

    This will remove the floating windows.

    Everything but the windows on that texture is pure black, 0,0,0, RGB.

    This shows up in the sim as transparent.

    You could edit the textures to change the value a bit to get the building to show up in the sim as complete.

    Don't forget to change the Alpha and the _lm.

    Thank you. I don't have the proficiency to edit Adams Mark back in; but, I can sure get rid of those 2 files. I appreciate your advice.

    Bean,

    This is really old;but, if you're out there, did you ever upload the fix you came up with?

    Does anyone have a patch to like Bean had a picture of; i.e., a replacement for the Adams Mark Hotel?
