TNCS - Saba airfield: fence issue. Runaway unusable.

Postby Hyphow » Sun May 17, 2020 5:21 pm

I'd like to report an object-position issue:
Last week I tried to land to Saba island -TNCS -, the shortest runaway in Caribbean sea. But, on final approach, something forced me to go-around and leave the area: a fence has kinda migrated from the side of the hill to the middle of the runaway. Very frustated :evil: .
So I had to reroute to TNCM.

Good day Hyphow and thank you for the report.
The airport of Saba, as you can also see in your pictures due to cliff on runway 12's end, was mispositioned in the process of building WS2.0. It is currently in the process of being replaced by updated terrain, which should be available soon on TerraSync (if impatient, you can use this custom scenery for the time in between, but really it should not take that long https://github.com/D-ECHO/Caribbean-CustomScenery).
As you can see here: https://scenery.flightgear.org/map/?lat ... 20219&z=18, the objects are actually positioned correctly in relation to the real airport's position, but the runway is misplaced. I don't really know how these objects ended up there (I placed them for the new terrain, kept them in the custom scenery repository and planned to add them to the scenery database once the terrain was replaced), so I'm sorry for your bad experience.

Good evening D-ECHO, thanks a lot for your quick and detailed answer!

Roger that, I'll be patient and wait till the TerraSync new update, no problem. In fact, I've noticed this weird cliff position on RNW12's threshold, not realy conform with IRL videos on youtube!

I'm glad I did this flight since it served to report a bug. Carribean Scenery is a fairly strong work, are you the only one working to build this area?

Regards.

Still waiting for that Caribbean scenery update. Coming up on 4 months.
If I were you, I would install the custom scenery from D-ECHO's Github instead of waiting for something that may not happen.

It isn't just Saba. St Bart's, Montserrat, and others have changed and at least one new airport added. If you want to check out the changes, Take a look at a couple of my YouTube videos.
St Maarten to Guadeloupe
and
Guadeloupe to Martinique.
Fast fwd through the en route stuff.

Edit: That pic in the OP looks like the new fence with the old runway. The new scenery moves the runway about 50 meters northeast.
If that was an attempt at upgrading the scenery, it appears the Objects (fence) were incorporated, but the scenery (runway) wasn't changed.

The Caribbean is in the process of being put to TerraSync, though both Torsten and me got real-life things to do, which is mostly what slows it down. But I'm confident we'll get there.

Really? I'm beginning to doubt it after 6 months.
