Paro X by Thai Creations

Visitors of Bhutan Kingdom between China and India will land at Paro, thing that can be simulated already in FS2004.

As it seems to be more FSX users than FS2004, it’s good for them to have the chance soon to install Paro X as well, from Thai Creations.

    Hello
    Looks better in the FS9 version IMHO

  • Daniel De Beukelaer

    Hi,
    I bought the Paro FSX scenery, it s very well done, but the runway is in a bowl so impossible to take-off or land, any chance to fix that problem, many thanks in advance

      Posting that question as a response to a news article isn’t going to get very far, Daniel – you need to contact the developers directly for support if you have a problem.

      It sounds like you need to learn how to dive on approach, and how to get some more pitch up for takeoff ! Look for real world videos of landings and you’ll see that the visual approach is not straight in the runway axis, all the way down from 10’000ft to the runway threshold. Not at all. Another thing that will not help, your weight ! Your aircraft selection may be incorrect for the actual topography and runway length. Even with a correct aircraft, payload and/or fuel load may be out of the performance charts for this runway length.

    The video that Sebastien posted in response to the FS9 release was very good, although there was swearing at one point (which says a lot about the approach) – I’ll dig out the URL and post it as a news article shortly.

    Not a news article, but there’s the video that Sebastien linked to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsZqN-uEgQU

    Daniel, you could have a duplicate AFCAD installed. Search, inside FS directory, for files with the ICAO name of the airport and notice if more than one shows up in different folders. If so, disable the oldest one by changing the extension or moving it somewhere else. If this is too difficult for you, there’s an utility available in Avsim or flightsim.com that scans for duplicated afcad files automaticaly. You’ll have to do some digging as I can’t remember its name. But Ian’s suggestion is a good one too.

  • Ian P

    Of course it does depend on what you mean by “a bowl” – a duplicate AFD will tend to cause crashes or, depending on layering, the taxiways to be at a different level than the ground surface. 99.9% of AFDs these days exclude ones below them, so that only tends to be an issue if someone has given an alternate ICAO name for some reason.

    Actually… I just re-read my own article and this is probably the answer, from the product page itself:

    Important!!!! please read carefully and do as instructed.

    Mesh in the FSX is not good. The airport will sink into the ground.
    You need to download Himalaya mesh file name fs_him_01.zip (http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?FileName=fs_him_01.zip) freeware from http://www.avsim.com (recommend) or use Fs Global program.

    Thank you all very much and sorry i thought i was on thai creations forum, i tried your advises fs_him_01 is nice but didn t take off the walls around the airport, taking away the oldest vqpr file gave me a second runway floating in the air, probably at the right elevation but all the taxiways and airport buildings stayed 200 meters lower :)…I’m still investigating and i’ll let you know

  • Daniel

    Found it: you have to copy the 2 mesh_himalaya… files in the “simMarket/Paro International Airport FSX/scenery” directory that worked for me
