Lorbyscenery.cfg VS. scenery.cfg

Recommended Posts

Out of curiosity, I wanted to check these two files ( Lorbyscenery.cfg & scenery.cfg) and noticed that the LM scenery.cfg has broken "area" sequencing. The areas break after [Area.002] between  [Area.003] to [Area.038]. Does P3Dv4.5 read my scenery from Lorbyscenery.cfg  OR scenery.cfg. I just thought both .cfg files would be identical. I am guessing it is the Lorbyscenery.cfg file.

Hello,

what is the "lorbyscenery.cfg"? Do you mean the file that is created for makerunways? If so, that is just a temporary file that contains all you scenery (cfg and xml based) at the same time in an orderly fashion. The sim doesn't know or care about it.

Best regards

Thanks for that.  I take it then, not to worry about the fact that my scenery.cfg is missing Area’s [003] to [038], which by the way are ORBX entries. I have previously migrated my ORBX scenery over to another Drive.

I think I have found the answer to my own question. Please correct me if I am wrong. Because the ORBX scenery is installed outside of the sim, it will show in the P3D Addons  file not in scenery.cfg.

Generally speaking yes. But in reality, that is not really it, the "issue" is that the ORBX scenery is referenced by add-on.xml files (it doesn't matter where the scenery assets are installed). And those contain the seemingly missing layers. It is no longer necessary for the scenery.cfg to show an unbroken sequence of layers (the area number is irrelevant anyway).

The purpose of the "lorbyscenery.cfg" is to provide a consolidated view of the entire scenery library in scenery.cfg format for programs that are unable to scan the external scenery references of P3D.
