Aprons discrepancy between final package and scenery editor

Hi,

I'm having weird issues with aprons color in this specific airport, already tried other material, new package with only 1 apron inside, also other ICAO; The only positive result so far is when I built the package using fictional ICAO on that location, the issue was gone.

There is some aprons color discrepancy between final package and scenery editor.

Final Package with correct ICAO:

Scenery Editor with correct ICAO:

Final Package with fictional ICAO:

The test was made with current product package available on Marketplace, also new package with only one apron inside. The color dispreancy occurs with all aprons, no matter if is default Asobo material or custom material.

Package sent in private comment.

Thanks a lot!

Do we think this will be available in the SU10 Beta or only with an SDK update?

The SDK is independent of the game.

The devmode is however integrated in the build, so yes, it is already available in the SU10 beta.

If the addon package was starred, you can't override it, as far as I know.

Thanks rhumbaflappy, that's not the case case, unfortunately.

"Starring" an airport shouldn't have anything to do with being able to override it, no?


What's important for overriding a package is its order in the content.xml, it HAS to come after the package it's trying to override.

We as users really, really, really need a tool for editing the order of the content.xml file like we used to have. Deleting it every time is not enough.

I had an idea I tried at KTEX. It's a starred airport that comes as an Asobo World update, I think. I used aprons as you indicated with the same results. Then I tried polygons... they are not part of the airport definition. They showed as expected:

Check if this could possibly be related to this issue I reported here:

https://devsupport.flightsimulator.com/questions/5082/possible-bug-with-deletealljetways.html

Which more than jetways, seems to be problem with the various Delete commands in general, in which an airport supposed to delete something, cannot if if another package covering the same airport has already placed its own exclusions, UNLESS you remove the CONTENT.XML file before each start, in that case everything works as expected.

Try to remove the CONTENT.XML, if it fixes the problem for you, than it's the same issue.

I opened the thread in January during SU8 Beta, the bug has been confirmed, but the fix still didn't make it in SU9, let's hope it will for SU10.

Hi, Thanks for the tips! Tried remove all "delete options", exclude Content.Xml, SceneryIndexes, also new package with only 1 apron and no delete options. No success so far, but I agree with you, this definitely started after SU8. Thanks for your time!

So last night I updated the 2 world updates for USA and then started having an issue where the coloration of aprons in Scenery Editor and outside of Dev Mode weren't the same again. All aprons got REALLY bright, and weren't seeming to match their RGB values. Now even when I load the sim this seems to be the case, even after sim and system restarts. Any ideas what could be causing this all of a sudden?
