Trees in the water? Go to Step Table #5 on the Installation/Getting Start Page ... that is the area that discusses installing Tongass X. There are two things there that could help you. Notice the "trees in the water" problem ... you can go to our FAQ page and see pictures of Wrangel and compare to what you've got. 

There is a fix for this on the faq page, but Poppet has also discussed the fix in her "Installing Tongass Fjords X into Prepar3D V3 and V4". In the top section it is discussed.

Let us know if this helps.

Hi !

Thanks for the quick answer.But I meant,when I am seeing the sea,where it should be,
that is no proof for Tongass Fjords to  be installed.Can I go to a special place,that would proof that TF is installed?

Send us a picture of something YOU have that is unique. We'll grab a screen shot of the same place (if you give us lat/long) and you can compare.

Hi DocScott,
     Yes, go to Sitka and take a look at the airport area, and the marina behind it.  Look for AI cruise ships in the open water area southwest of PASI.  There will be AI TFX aircraft flying around too, if you've got them turned on.  Take some screenshots of the area and post em here.  If you've got the TFX Higher and lower elements in your scenery config (below FTX), you are most likely seeing TFX correctly in your sim.   ;)

I was looking at my terrain.cfg and noticed that the 40Tongass entries are qbove the ORBX entries.  In Elaine's installation procedure, she has the 40 entries put at the end of the terrain.cfg file.  Is my terrain.cfg file OK with the ORBX entries below the Tongass entries?

ORBX recommends that Tongass Fjords X be placed below ORBX/FTX entries for FSX.  Chart from the ORBX guide.


Later,

He's referring to the terrain.cfg edit, Spud.  They go at the bottom, and renumbered accordingly.   ;)

I don't see any problems with the way things look in the sim, but maybe I should re-arrange the terrain.cfg.

Spud, I have the scenery library in correct order, i.e. Tongass below ORBX/FTX.

I don't think it matters where in the terrain.cfg the TFX entries are, as long as the number sequence and final tally are correct.  ;)
