EXI - Excursion Inlet SPB / Dolphins
« on: December 07, 2019, 12:04:17 PM »
Hi all,
I don´t have any dolphins jumping at Excursion Inlet while others have. Could someone tell me which files produce them so that I would know where to look for the issue -THX a lot in advance!

First question that comes to mind is, do you have all of the object libraries installed?

Affirmative!
For example the seabirds are present.

The dolphins come from the ....FSX or P3D\Scenery\Global\Scenery\animals.bgl file.  That same file produces the flying gulls.  It is a standard FSX/P3D file.   Since you have the gulls, you should have the dolphins which are seen right in front of the SPB. 

I can't think of any reason why you don't have them.

THX - checked it. The file is present and has the correct date and Kb-number (compared with other guy with P3Dv4). In Simobjects/Animals I have "Humpback Whale" and "Orca Whale". Or might it be a simobject/animal somewhere in the libraries? What I still don´t understand: If the dolphins come from the standard bgl in P3D/FSX, they should be present even without RTTM?

Hi Beaufort,

Sorry for the confusion.  The file I was talking about was the object library file.  Your problem has nothing to do with SimObjects.  Since you have the proper object libray file, there is another possiblity.  You need to check that you have the latest version of the SAK - Sea Plane Bases V2.1 scenery package which places the dolphin, gull and other objects at the EXI SPB location.  That package contains a folder named SAK Seaplane Bases which should be enabled inside your sim's scenery library.

I assume you have it enabled or you wouldn't see the birds.  However, please check the SAK Sea Plane Base EXI.bgl (the placement file that actually places the dophin swimming in front of EXI) that is contained inside your SAK Seaplane Bases folder.  It should be dated 5/29/18.  Inside that same folder you should have a version.txt file that contains the following:

SAK - Sea Plane Bases V2.1 (Refreshed 06.10.2019)
Scenery by Brad Allen and AI Traffic by Dex Thomas

If the SAK Seaplane Bases folder checks out, then you should see the dolphins swimming.  If not, you need to download the latest SAK - Sea Plane Bases V2.1 scenery package from the RTMM Scenery Library and replace you SAK Seaplane Bases folder.

Hi Rod,
THX a lot for your instant help! They are back! I had the correct version installed, but for unknown reasons the scenery got lost in my scenery.cfg. Would have been a long story without your help. THX again and THX for this absolutely wonderful scenery project!
Regards
Rainer
