Hello,

I've been using FSDT LSGG and LSZH for quite some time and have been very happy. I am now on the way of becoming a private pilot.
I do my training at the club in Geneva and have flown about 20 patterns in real life.
Tonight I was training in FSX and realised that when in the air the PAPI lights of grass runway were not showing. I see them when on the ground but not in the air Sad
Not very useful Tongue

The papi lights on 05 look quite flat as well...

I have a second issue, after take off on a left hand pattern I will turn on downwind now if I look left I see the aiport which is all grey (textures not loaded) and everything rapidly loads... Is there any way of resolving that issue ?
Here is a shot to show you the problem :

Thanks for your help,

- 1st problem: will look into it, it might be probably something that we overlooked, I even forgot that LSGG *had* a grass runway, and you are the 1st one reporting it, I guess the grass runway is not used very much (by FSX users, not meaning in real life).

- 2nd problem: there's no way to have it entirely fixed, it's related to the fact the ground is not FSX native, and we can't change this without redoing the scenery almost from scratch.

I bet it isn't much used either, I hardly ever used it before starting my PPL... But FSX is a great tool to practice and it would be great if you could get that solved Wink

Thanks for the prompt reply...

Yes, both in real life and in the default FSX scenery there are PAPI (2-box) lights there! I've just bought LSGG and LSZH from you as I'm considering starting my PPL in Geneva. Could you please, please put the PAPI on the grass runway in LSGG scenery (or give some hint how to add it myself)?

Thank you in advance for any help!

Hello,

Works great now and the grass runway is much better visible now. Thank you!
