MegaScenery3 Arizona missing bgl files

Recommended Posts

I've purchased both MegaScenery3 Arizona and Utah photoscenery and have just installed Arizona.  I'm missing these bgl files from the install.  Can someone check and see if these are present in their installation.

 

AZ_1-3.bgl
AZ_28-30
AZ_55-57
AZ_82-84
AZ_325-326
AZ_352
AZ_595-596
AZ_622-627
AZ_649-657
AZ_676-687
AZ_703-717

 

I would assume the bgl's are supposed to be consecutive in which case I guess I will have to download the zips again.  Not sure what will happen when I install Utah.  Are Utah bgl's consecutive?

 

I'm not sure how to proceed.  Thank you for your assistance.

The assumption that all bgl's are supposed to be consecutive is an easy one to make but it is wrong.

 

I'll quote my own answer to a similar question in another thread.

 

 

Yes that is normal.

I've only just got around to install my V3 scenery and have now started to analyse the changes. They have obviously developed a new naming scheme for the bgl files.

 

Previously the bgls were named xxx_letter_number.bgl where the letter were north-south coordinates and the numbers were west-east coordinates in a grid over the state. Now they just use xxx_Number.bgl. The Number is still giving you the N-S W-E coordinates for the tile but it is a bit less obvious how now. They now name tiles in increasing number order. If the state is all and all 25 bgl tiles wide they now divide the Number series in to stripes of 25. So Number 1-25 gives you the W-E coordinates for the most northern grid line of tiles. 26-50 gives you the 2nd most northern grid line of tiles. 51-75 gives you the 3rd most northern grid line of tiles and so on.

 

If the state isn't a perfect N-S W-E square some numbers will be missing as their respective coordinates in the square grid do not cover any part of the state. So the fact that all numbers from 1-whateverthehighestnumberis are not present doesn't mean that tiles are missing. It's very easy to think tiles are missing if you don't know how they describe coordinates in a grid system.

 

For example, If in V2 the first bgl was named xxx_A_04.bgl it didn't automatically make you miss the xxx_A_01.bgl , xxx_A_02.bgl and xxx_A_03.bgl. Or if in V3 the bgls go from say xxx_75.bgl to xxx_78.bgl you instantly wonder where did 76 and 77 go? Whilst in V2 the equivalent naming of the tiles would could have been from xxx_B_25.bgl to xxx_C_03.bgl and that doesn't instantly make you wonder why xxx_C_01.bgl and xxx_C_02.bgl aren't there?

 

Looking at the numbers of assumed 'missing' tiles you have there are consistent with Arizona being 27 tiles wide and the shape of the state having a straight N and E border, a chunk missing in the top NW corner, the W border having a chunk going in to the state somewhere about in the middle and the southern border tapering off towards the N a little bit more than half of the state.

 

If you are still worried, just load up a flight at for example KFLG, select outside top down view and zoom out until you see the whole state. Any tiles missing inside the state will easily show up.

Is the last tile by any chance called AZ_729 and you have 670 bgls in total?

This is the pictorial version with every X being a bgl tile:

 

 

       XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl     4-  27)

       XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl   31-  54)

       XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl   58-  81)

       XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl   85-108)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 109-135)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 136-162)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 163-189)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 190-216)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 217-243)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 244-270)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 271-297)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 298-324)

     XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 327-351)

   XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 353-378)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 379-405)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 406-432)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 433-459)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 460-486)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 487-513)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 514-540)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 541-567)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 568-594)

     XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 597-621)

               XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 628-648)

                      XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 658-675)

                             XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 688-702)

                                    XXXXXXXXXXXX        (bgl 718-729)

 

Does this look like Arizona squeezed at the sides? :smile:

Thanks SAAB!  Yes this is what I have.  Really appreciate your comprehensive answer.
