SimHeaven X-World edit you may have missed

Recommended Posts

I noticed golf courses were 'faded out' so re-read the manual to find out why.

The default library.txt file draws polygons over certain areas - golf course, grass, woods ,tennis courts and many others. However, if you use ortho like I do, you don't want these polygons drawn - you want to see all the ortho scenery.

In the folder '6-scenery' (for each area you have installed) there are two library.txt files

Rename 'library.txt' to 'library - standard.txt'.
Rename 'library - orthos.txt' to 'library.txt'

You should now have more vivid ground textures for those areas that were faded out - transforms XP-12 with orthos installed!

Interesting. Out of curiosity, how did you figure this out? Did the author mention this somewhere?

I did a few Google searches but didn't find anything, so I re-read the SimHeaven X-World manual where I found the section relating to polygons over the textures.
