MAIW NAS Key West KNQX for FSX - Missing textures

Post by olafeddm »

In the Package North American RA-5C Vigilante - US Navy for FSX the attached KNQX scenery does not show up correctly in my FSX, a number of textures are missing (see attached files). I tried to identify the filename of the missing textures with the method described by FSDeveloper and indeed four texture files were found, but not the missing textures you can see at the attached pictures.
Can anybody help or give a hint?

Do you have all 5 object libraries installed and their textures, as listed in the manual, plus the MAIW Global Object libraries?

All the textures you are missing are from the Key West Object library. You appear to have some of them, though they are quite likely in common with other libraries.

Hi guys, thank you for your quick response:

@ John: the MAIW Global Object Libraries are installed, as well as the mentioned 5 object libraries, but not the textures as this was not demanded in the manual.

@ TimC340: where can I find the Key West Object library?

TIA

Hi Olaf. the actual texture sheet you appear to be missing is Key West.DDS. It should have been in the package, I believe. I'm out right now, but I'll have a look when I get home. You already have the object library - otherwise you wouldn't have the objects!

OK, I have checked that the download does indeed contain all of the textures needed. I can only suggest that you download it again and overwrite your KNQX Key West NAS FSX texture folder. There should be 43 texture files in that folder.

Ok, I will do when at home this evening, but I checked the texture folder, too: there are only 42 textures, the 43rd is the Thumbs.db.
But I do not think this is relevant.

No, it's not - you're quite correct. As I say, it looks like the texture file Key West.DDS is missing or corrupt. It would be interesting to see whether these missing textures appear at night, as there is a separate Key West_LM.dds file for night textures.

Hi guys,

after another testing I remembered that many years ago I tried to install the Desmond Burrell's VFA-106 Gladiators package made for FS9 into my FSX and thereby using the methods described in the MAIW_FSX_Installation_Guide.pdf, e.g. installing a folder MAIW Excludes or MAIW Scenery. In this latter folder I discovered among others a 'Key West Object library.bgl' dating from 2009! This was the reason for the issues in my FSY and after having removed them, the scenery shows up perfectly.
I should have read the manual more thoroughly, where explicitly is pointed out to remove any other versions of KNQX. I can only apologize for wasting your time, but I simply did not remember the earlier installation of the KNQX scenery.

Thanks a lot for your help
