Error when attempting to batch overlays Ortho4XP, can you help?

Recommended Posts

This is the error I get, and I cannot seem to figure it out.  I've got the right tiles downloaded, and everything within Ortho4XP seems to be 'pointed' the right way in terms of how the folder structure is set up...

 

" ERROR: file C:/Users/xxxxx/OneDrive/Desktop/X-Plane 11/Custom Scenery\Earth nav data+20-090+29-083.dsf absent. Recall that the overlay source directory needs to be set in the config window first."

 

At this point I am just not sure how to proceed, I've tried to basically re-do everything but continue to see this error only when doing the overlays portion of the process.

I use HD scenery V4 and I simply tick the 'custom overlay directory", navigate to it and select it. 

HD scenery V4 resides in the custom scenery folder.

If you want to use normal global scenery as an overlay, it resides in xplane 11/Global Scenery/Xplane 11 Global Scenery.

I hope this helps

This was effectively the solution - I neglected to realize I needed to be pulling the overlays from the standard Global Scenery, not something out of the custom scenery folder.
