Terrain Config Entry "objectsize=300"

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I was in the process of installing some Norway freeware which requires an edit of the terrain config, and the entries didn't match up as I had an extra line on the bottom of each terrrain number.

 

For example:

 

// Lake Shorelines - Non Perennial - lake / ice / non-perennial
[Texture.52]
Name=Shorelines_Lake_Ice_Non_Perennial
Color=FFC0C000
LegacyId=1076
Textures=rbankNPwi.bmp,rbankNPhw.bmp,rbankNPsu.bmp,rbankNPsu.bmp,rbankNPsu.bmp
Layout=3_PLUS_4
Size=4
LandClassRemapType=natural
ExcludeAutogen=Yes
RenderToTexture=Yes
RenderPriority=90000
Water=No
ObjectSize=300
 
// Lake Shorelines - Non Perennial - lake / bank / non-perennial
[Texture.53]
Name=Shorelines_Lake_Bank_Non_Perennial
Color=FFC0C000
LegacyId=1077
Textures=rbankNPwi.bmp,rbankNPhw.bmp,rbankNPsu.bmp,rbankNPsu.bmp,rbankNPsu.bmp
Layout=3_PLUS_4
Size=4
LandClassRemapType=natural
ExcludeAutogen=Yes
RenderToTexture=Yes
RenderPriority=90000
Water=No
ObjectSize=300
 
// Lake Shorelines - Non Perennial - lake / swamp / non-perennial
[Texture.54]
Name=Shorelines_Lake_Swamp_Non_Perennial
Color=FFC0C000
LegacyId=1078
Textures=rbankNPwi.bmp,rbankNPhw.bmp,rbankNPsu.bmp,rbankNPsu.bmp,rbankNPsu.bmp
Layout=3_PLUS_4
Size=4
LandClassRemapType=natural
ExcludeAutogen=Yes
RenderToTexture=Yes
RenderPriority=90000
Water=No
ObjectSize=300
 
 
A couple of friends checked for me and they don't have this entry and I do.. Shall I remove it do you think?
 
Thanks for your help guys,
 
Alex

That is a valid entry for vector autogen.

 

The 3 examples you give are not for vector autogen.

 

I don't think they are doing anything there, and there is no harm in leaving them there.

 

If you look down towards the end of the file you should find [Autogen.n.n.n] sections where that is a viable entry.

 

Have those all been changed to 300?

 

regards,

Joe

Is that looking right Joe?

I don't know about right, but it's different than what I have.

 

For the first one I have a value of 30. Are your bridges huge?

 

These would be generic bridges, not custom bridges, so typically smaller, lesser known bridges.

 

regards,

Joe

 

[edit]

disregards above, I don't think that vector object is actually used in the sim. The following entries are used and my values are smaller. The impact should be larger poles alongside roads for you.

I don;t think so,

 

I am tempted to just delete the entry. I don't think it will do anything adverse..

Make a backup copy first, just in case it does.

I'm curious as to how the entries got changed? And how a line got written to entries that it wouldn't apply to? Any clues?

Many popular addons want to modify the terrain.cfg. I know Orbx does, I think UTX will, there are others.

 

And how a line got written to entries that it wouldn't apply to?

Not all installers are well written.

 

A word to the wise, back up the terrain.cfg before installing any addon the uses an auto-installer.

 

regards,

Joe
