Loss of default airports

Recommended Posts

I appear to have lost most of the default airports and gained a mass of autogen trees and old buildings. I've tried changing seasons without it helping. It seems to be on most continents. When I go to "Go to Airport", there is only a choice of a handful of airports, eg. 42 for the whole of Canada, 46 for UK, etc. The only recent additions have been a couple of AIA a/c for traffic.

  Add-on scenery seems to work ok. World /scenery/asia etc. still seems to have all the APxxxx files they always had.  If I use JABBGL, I can find all the airports which don't show up in "Go to Airport" which seems to confirm that all the APxxxx files are still there and intact. I can't think of any texture file changes apart from the AIA traffic which i thought shouldn't affect scenery.

Any help or ideas would be much appreciated.   Thanks.

Hi there Colin B,

Judging by your story it seems very likely that you have somehow de-activated some of your default entries in your scenery library and especially because your JABBgl program can find all the APnnnnnn.bgl files normally.

I would suggest that you go into your main scenery.cfg file within your root FS2004 folder and check if there are any entries specifying a "FALSE" for your default scenery entries, begining with e.g. Asia, etc ......if found at all.

There's also the possibility that your scenery.cfg file has become corrupt and/or unfixable, in which case you will most probably need to re-install your FS2004.

Do you not have a recent backup of your scenery.cfg file somewhere because any unexplainable difference in their sizes will immediately point to corruption of your existing version.

Good luck

Hans

The problem was the Scenery.cfg.  I have several to cover different areas and made a new one to test a couple of sceneries on their own.  You were right.  I had missed out a default scenery entry.  Once corrected, everything is back to normal.

Thank you very much for the pointer. The last thing I wanted to do was re-install everything. It's amazing what one missing entry will do!  Thank you again.
