CYVR Building Fix for FSX
I neglected to mention here that last weekend I published a simple exclusion for the large non-existent building that MS placed at CYVR. You can download it here from AVSIM. MS mistook a black area on the tarmac, surrounded by white edge, as a building. This was really an area of pre-load fill, covered by a black tarp, with white blocks around the edge to hold it down. It’s since been removed. To further confuse things there is construction near that area which is listed in an airport technical database. Here’s what was placed in FSX:
And here’s a shot of what this looks like from the air. Look in the middle left of the photo, and you can see a large black “L”.
In this photo, it really does look like a building, doesn’t it? Lower right corner.
Overall MS has vastly improved CYVR in FSX over what we saw in FS9.
