KLSV Nellis AFB - P3Dv4

Post by ejoiner »

Hi Guys, as many years as Ive been doing this, I find myself having forgotten how to fix what is probably a basic thing.

I have the MAIW military airbases installed. For the most part they are superior to the default P3D bases. This is the case with KLSV (Nellis AFB). I have it installed, but it fights with the default KLSV. Buildings on top of each other, etc.
I want to remove or otherwise comment out, the default Nellis base in favor of the MAIW version. How do I do this?

I am afraid that KLSV is built into the default Las vegas bgl in the NAMW scenery file.

Please let me know what you think here.

Do you have any Orbx regions installed, more specifically the Southern California one?

Yeah, that. I've made a habit of checking for extra files in the Orbx folder any time I install new scenery.

I accidently deleted my Nellis AFCAD file for P3Dv4 and cant find it anywhere on the site. Can someone direct me where to find the nellis package or afcad for p3d? "KLSV_ADEP4_MAIW" I believe was the file name.

It's not really as simple as that. There are about 11 files in the MAIW P3Dv4 version of KLSV, plus the traffic files, textures and any generic or custom library objects the airfield uses. It's not difficult to convert the FS9 version to work in P3D4, but you need to be familiar with ADE and MCX.

Strictly speaking, we're not supposed to share individual airfields from Matrix as the permissions that were sought and given for using the various authors' packages were specifically for the entire Matrix product. I know the 'management' are still considering if and how to release the converted airfields individually, or whether the Matrix collection could be released as a conventional self-install package rather than in the Matrix program wrapper, but as yet - as far as I know - those decisions have not been made, or have been rejected.

It's worth learning the skills to convert these old FS9 packages, as several aren't in Matrix, either because the airfields were no longer in use when Matrix - which intended to represent only up-to-date prototypical operations - was released, or because the airfields had changed too much, or the conversion team ran out of time before Matrix was abandoned. It really isn't difficult to do, and there is a tutorial on the site here.

I don't think there was a problem with what you did Ray, as it was to replace a file WB383 had accidentally deleted. My post was more to explain to zsoltfireman why we can't just put the Matrix airfields on here to share without a blessing from the management team.
