FS9 files help

Recommended Posts

I downloaded a scenery for Svetlogorsk (UOIG) in Russia from the Russian avsim site. In the zip folder the is a folder that has 5 files HL971070.bgl, HL971080.bgl, HP971070.bgl, HP971080.bgl, and 971080_1.bgl. I know these files go into the FS9\scenery\asia\scenery folder but does anyone know what these files are for?

 

There is no readme file with this scenery and I do not know if those files are a backup and I am supposed to delete the original files or am I supposed to replace the original files with these new ones.

 

I did install the scenery without doing anything with those HP and HL files and the scenery looks ok, but I do not know what I am actually looking for to see if anything is out of place or not working right.

Those are hydro polys and shorelines.

 

Move the originals to some place safe in case you want them back.

 

I would create a new folder in FS9\scenery\asia\scenery to store them in and put a text file in there with notes so you can recall in the future what you did.

 

regards,

Joe

Thank you! And yes I always back up those types of files when there is a scenery that has those types of new files.
