You might try running the installer again.  That may fix it.

Hi, Can you upload a screenshot of the content of your "X-plane 11\Custom scenery" folder? And a screenshot of OIII in the simulator to show what is wrong with it?

If you delete the folder added by Ortho4XP (it should be something like X-plane 11\Custom scenery\zOrtho4XP_+35+051...).

Have you created an overlay too?

Yes. before I tried to reinstall by xplane installer, I deleted the Ortho4XP folder for OIII .and I tried once for creating Overlay with Overlay editor, but it could not fix the issue.I attach the screenshots please find them.

Hi, I am very surprised you placed shortcuts in your Custom scenery folder. When I tried that a few years ago it didn't work.

You should delete 3 things :
-X plane 11\Custom scenery\zOrtho4XP_+35+051 - Shortcut
-X plane 11\Custom scenery\yOrtho4XP_overlay\earth nav data\+30+050\+35+051.dsf
-X plane 11\Custom scenery\scenery_packs.ini

Once this is done, launch X-plane at OIII.
If your problem is still there, close your simulator and upload your X-plane 11\log.txt so that we can understand better what is happening.

PS : I doubt Overlay Editor can be of any help for what you intend to do (the files are too big). I would personnaly use Ortho4XP for both the terrain and the overlay (which is what you seem to have actually done). And I want to improve the overlay, I would then try and see what I can get with W2XP from Simheaven. Again, doublecheck you can use shortcuts in your Custom Scenery folder. The only method I have seen so far is to place directly the whole tile generated with Ortho4XP inside the Custom Scenery folder.

Hi again, according to that line :

0:00:27.227 I/SCN: DSF load time: 5072144 for file Custom Scenery/a_LGIR xp11  tdg/Earth nav data/+30+050/+35+051.dsf (0 tris)

It is very surprising that a package for Greece countains a dsf file for OIII tile.

So I would first remove the following file :
Custom Scenery/a_LGIR xp11  tdg/Earth nav data/+30+050/+35+051.dsf

If it does not work, I would move for backup the whole "Custom Scenery/a_LGIR xp11  tdg" folder.

X-PLANE now seems to accept shortcuts in the custom scenery folder, which is a good news I think.

It's surprising that your log.txt mentions X-plane 11.01r2, although you say you updated it. The current version is 11.02r2. Can you check what is written on your splash screen when launching x-plane? there have been recent cases when one or the other is wrong. So If your splashscreen says X-plane 11.01r2, run the installer to update X-plane and enable beta.

If none of these 3 steps gives any result, please send your log.txt again (same process, launch at OIII and close).
