Guys,

I recently purchased the KLAS Scenery for FSX, was able to resolve the elevation error successfully. I cannot see any PAPI light for 8R/26L and 8L/26R.

I ran the Airport Scanner from Scruffy Duck to check for any duplicates for KLAS. There are no duplicates for KLAS

ILS landing for 26L and 26R is working fine. But, no PAPI lights

Any help to resolve this issue will be appreciated.

PAPI are surely included in the scenery and are working fine, at least in P3D, see the screenshot. I checked FSX and yes, they can't be seen in DirectX 9, and are seen barely in DirectX 10. No idea why, since the scenery is the same and we haven't used anything specific P3D, it's really an FSX scenery.

We'll have to look into it, but cannot promise any updates, since we stopped supporting FSX since 2017 so, in general, FS9 and FSX products should be considered provided as they are. That's why there's a Trial version, so you can verify how they work before purchased.

Hello Virtuali,

Thank you for looking into this PAPI lights.

This is not the only issue. Even the Green Taxi lights are not working at KLAS during "Dawn" and "Dusk" setting. Green Taxi lights are only working at "Night" setting, while all airports even default stock airports have Green taxi lights for "Dawn" and "Dusk" settings.

Another issue is, there is no center night lights on any of the KLAS runway.

I hope you will take the initiative to solve the following:
1) PAPI lights 8R/26L and 8L/26R
2) Green Taxi lights during "Dawn" and "Dusk" settings
3) Center night lights on Runways

We cannot test all these features in Trial version within 5 minutes. There is trust relationship and an assumed standard of finished product.

This is not really a bug, it's made on purpose, to save some fps, since Dusk is the heaviest on performance, considering both Day and Night textures are loaded and displayed ( blended ) at the same time so, we try to get fps in every place we can.

Because there aren't any on the real airport. I just checked the latest Jeppesen chart from ( 10-9A, 21 AUG 2020 ), and none of the runways have the CL indication on the runway light table. Always check your charts first, before saying a scenery has a "bug"

From this sentence, it seems you misunderstood how the Trial works.

It's not as if you have "just" 5 minutes. You have 5 minutes PER SESSION, you close the sim, restart again, you have another 5 minutes, and that never expires, ever. The Trial has been designed PRECISELY considering how users test a scenery, usually for performances, by tweaking a setting, exit, restart, change the time of day, change aircraft, etc.
