HLnnnnnn.BGL files

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what HLnnnnnn.BGL files (eg HL947100.bgl) in FS9\scenery\eurw\scenery depict and where each one is located in the World view?I ask because I have a number of such files backed up but they are not included in the above location and I don't want to just put them in in case some of my 3rd party scenery has disabled them.I while ago I was searching for something else and came across a post where someone had included a World map view showing a grid for the location of FS9 basic scenery files but didn't make a note of the post.TIA
