Thread: strange squares on grass

    Default strange squares on grass

    Hi fans,


    after a long, long time I re-installed fsx again on my PC ( Win 10, 64bit ).
    For the file EDNX I needed to install the ORBX files. After starting FSX I realized a lot of strange yellow squares in the area left and right of the runway. I tried to delete them with Instant Scenery 3, but no success.

    Has anyone of you an idea how to get these squares out of the scenery?

    Thanks in advance ! :-)

    best regards

    Hi Ulrich,
    These yellow squares could be missing objects or textures from a required scenery library - if they're not ORBX files they could be from some other Object Library. From the placement and number of squares, I think they could be patches of long grass.

    Is this at an Orbx airport? Then make sure the Orbx object library is installed.

    good idea ! But: Isn't it the same poisonous stuff like RoundUp? So I have to be careful letting my dog struggling around the airfield......

    No, it isn't an original ORBX airport. The author says he produced an update to an existing FS9-airport, using parts of the ORBX stuff.
    By the way: A couple of weeks ago the grass area was clean, no squares, no bugs ......

    @ tiger 1962: So I better check with Instant Scenery3 the environment files for these things.
    However: FSX -and this airport- looked well and healthy a couple of weeks ago.....

    Yes it could be a seasonal texture which only appears in Spring and Summer, such as long grass or wild flowers maybe?

    Finally I got this problem solved :-)
    In the ORBX folder inside the FSX folder I opened a folder named FTX_EU_GES_05_SCENERY_scenery and deleted 2 files with the ICAO-code " EDNX" . Now I have the airfield as it is supposed to be ( okay, some minor fixes to do concerning hangars and some buildings I want to exchange with own-built Sketchup-objects, but this is another story....)

    Thanks to all of you who took the time to give me some hints in this matter !!
