Need help : alternating between 2 scenery.cfg files result in black ground- and object textures

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I made 2 different scenery.cfg files : one for Daytime flying with all Night Environment packages disabled and the other for Nighttime flying with all NE packages enabled.

Also I made 2 batch files : Daytime and Nighttime.


Those batch files copy the appropriate scenery.cfg file into  C;\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX

However after switching the ground- and object textures are black . Only water looks ok.


After switching and starting up FSX I do not get the message about new scenery file indexes.


Where did I go wrong here ? What did I forget ?

i think when you do this externaly; you also need to purge scenery indexs

in the same folder where scenery.cfg is locted

add delete instructions in your batch and delete the folowing folders to purge senery indexes with each switch


SceneryIndexes, and SceneryCache (last one is not a must, try without and with)


if you setup a profile with SimStarter; you wont have this issue when you switch profiles
