Can someone help or point me in the the right direction as to what's going on here. I haven't added anything to the Misty, Tongass, and Glacier Fjords area or any scenery recently yet when I load up anything in the Fjords area I get what's pictured in the screenshot. I have all of Holders additions for this area which is the three main scenery areas in FS9. This was working perfectly for years. Now all the coasts are messed up like I'm using Ultimate Terrain which I don't use. The only scenery I've added in this area months ago was Aerosoft's Ted Steven's Intl, a long way away from the Fjords area. Thanks in advance to anyone that knows what's going on here.

I wouldn't have thought that they would have modified coastlines that far out, but it's still probably worth temporarily disabling the PANC scenery to see if the effect goes away.

That effect is almost always caused by either the coastlines not being excluded, or by replacement coastlines being added as well as the ones you want to be able to see. Therefore it's possible that Aerosoft have included replacement coastlines for large parts of Alaska in their scenery. I'd be surprised if that is the case, though, because the three area sceneries are 'somewhat popular' and I'd suspect that many people using the PANC scenery also use Misty/Tongass/Glacier set.

The coastlines only look coarse enough to be default, which would imply that the exclude files aren't working properly for some reason, but if you can rule out PANC then it narrows it down by one.

Cheers,

Ian P.

I disabled Aerosoft's PANC and the problem is still there. Maybe they put some files somewhere else. I even tried their update for the scenery which didn't solve this issue.

Is there anything in <FS9>\scenery/world\scenery which might cause it? That's another usual haunt.

The problem is actually in this location. I reverted back to an old scenery folder I have (I'm always saving critical folders of past setups) and the problem is gone. I'd love to know what the file is that's causing this issue... Just the same as a temporary bandaide I can use my old scenery folder for Fjords flying and revert back to the other one for Asian flying in areas like Singapore which for some reason doesn't work with this scenery folder (I knew about this a couple years ago which is why I put together a new scenery file).
