Mesh Management - All you FS Global Users

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

Got a question for all you mesh users.  Since it takes up lot of place.  I have decided to junction the mesh directory of FS Global to a secondary drive.  My question is if I uninstall my sim, and reinstall it back.  I do not want to complete cd reinstall again (takes forever).  Do I just add the directories back to the scenery library.

 

And also I have noticed some bgl files get renamed and unrenamed in the uninstall bat file, should I create an alternate file with everything in reverse when doing a install (from hdd, not via discs)? or is that process not needed at all - and I just stick with adding directories to the Scenery.cfg

 

Thoughts? and suggestions are welcome.

 

Thank you

If I understand you correctly, you just want to move FSGlobal to a second HD?

 

I just did the same thing, actually I moved all of the areas I don't use and just left NAM on my SSD.  First copy (not cut/paste) the folders to the second drive.  Then load FSX/P3D and edit those scenery layers for the new location.  Then you can delete the original files.

 

Very easy...

 

If you were doing a complete reinstall of FSX/P3D, then I wouldn't leave anything to chance and I'd reinstall FSGlobal.  It really doesn't take that long, maybe 20 min?

Hey,

 

Thanks, you are right that I should use the installer when it comes to FSX/P3D - too many files and settings get modified.
