EGUP RAF Sculthorpe in P3D v. 5

Post by Jorgen » Fri Oct 27, 2023 7:20 am

I bought this yesterday, and it looks like my aircraft are taxiing on a surface about 30 cm./1 ft. or so beneath the visible runway and taxiway surface. I can supply a screenshot if required.

I also bought EGXV RAF Leconfield and EGVL RAF Little Rissington, but haven't checked them out yet.

On EGXV, I found almost the opposite issue - the runway and taxiways look like they are on embankments, about 6- cm./2 ft. high.

On EGVL, no issues like that, and I was able to watch 3 Bulldog T 1 (from a MAIW flight plan) taxi out and take off. On the other hand, the runway has no centerline...

Can you tell us where you purchased it from?
We want to look at the product page and check something.
We can also try it here and see if we see the same thing.

I installed all three you mentioned into P3D v5 by changing the "Prepar 3D v4" reference during install to "Prepar 3D v5".
None of our scenery products are marketed as compatible with Prepar 3D v5. But some of them do seem to work.
Here are images of the three sceneries you mentioned and judging from the tire position of the default Iris Texan II (brought to P3D v5 from v3).

Hope this helps. Nice to know we still work in the later versions of P3D. Now have to check out v6.

I need a small hardware modification on my system (for my own satisfaction), then I'll be porting everything to v. 6. I have every confidence that the sceneries will work there too.

But I notice that at Sculthorpe, you had the T-6 on the ramp. What does it look like on the runway threshold? I'll post a screenshot from there later.

Some more images at RAF Sculthorpe in P3D v5. Aircraft is sitting and taxiing without any issues.
If we ever update this for P3D v5 we'll look at why the engine grime smudges are pointing up rather than lying flat.

It looks rather like some of the B-66's are doing cartridge starts!

I may, in the vague future, get Pilot's Mesh. This may (hopefully) also fix some other elevation issues I have.
