Tried Everything Without Success! Need Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody - I thought that after having read all the threads relating to excluded areas, I can do it myself. But I was wrong. I need someone's help. I am trying to take out the buildings at CYTZ (Toronto City Centre). The first building is at:N43 37.91 W79 23.85 (NW corner)N43 37.93 W79 23.79 (SE corner)... my scasm file looks like this:*****Set( areamx 64 )Header( 3 42:30:00.0000 38:30:00.0000 -72:30:00.0000 -76:00:00.0000 ) GenExcl( exclude.bgl 143:37:54.6 43:37:55.8 -79:23:47.4 -79:23:51.043:37:54.6 43:37:55.8 -79:23:47.4 -79:23:51.0 )*****I created an 'exclude.bgl' file and copied it into the 'FS2002ADD ON SCENERYSCENERY' folder and then added the area from the World menu, but the building is still there.I have tried different ways of writing the coordinates and also used Airport 2.6.Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong? Many thanks in advance for your expertise ...Jay

I think it can be done without the need of a bgl. In the scenery.cfg make a new layer, that is above the default Toronto Area and add an exclude remark:Exclude=N43 37.93,W79 23.85,N43 37.91,W79 23.79,ObjectsI also think you got the northern point inverted. The most northern point is the N43 37.93 and not N43 37.91Give it a try.

Grande Amigo - it worked!!!I can't believe it just took that one line in the scenery.cfg file! There must be a drawback to this method - I can't believe it's so easy. Is there any difference between this method and all the other methods I've been reading in the forum using bgl's? Will this method still permit me to add buildings in those spots where I've taken buildings out?In all cases, thank you! You ended hours of frustration for me!Jay

the difference is using the scenery.cfg, you force a user to add that if you want to distribute your work.Sorry I didn't see your post sooner.The reason your code doesn't work is twofold...1. Your header doesn't contain the area you are trying to exclude. 2. Your exlude statement is in the wrong order.its supposed to be: North latitude, south latitude, east longitude, west longitude....Yours is opposite in lat.Bob Bernstein

Hi Jay.SCASM now has some easier code for excludes:

[b]Header( 1 44:00:00.0000 42:00:00.0000 -78:00:00.0000 -80:00:00.0000 )Exclude( F 43:37:55.8000 43:37:54.7000 -79:23:47.4000 -79:23:51.0000 )[/b]

Drag'n'drop the TXT on the SCASM icon to make the BGL. Pretty simple.Here's the format:Header( type TopLat BottomLat RightLon LeftLon )Exclude( mask TopLat BottomLat RightLon LeftLon )It's in the SCASM 2.88 docs.
