Removing default scenery

Recommended Posts

Hi all.The default KSLC scenery still has a construction crane near the north tower and I want to remove it (construction has been complete in that area for quite a number of years--Probably a carryover from fs2000). How do I remove it without affecting any other scenery at KSLC?Thanks much.Doug

Here's what I would do. Use "top down" view from the fs2002 views menu and turn on slew mode. Then put the crosshairs at the northwest corner of the crane, and note the longitude and latitude. Do that again at the southeast corner.Now modify these two lines of code to suit your location. The first line called header gets latitude and longitude numbers that are gross and a bit bigger than your area numbers, look at the example and you see what I mean...perhaps a 1 degree bigger box than the area will be fine. The second line gets the numbers you wrote down in the following order: N, S, E, WHeader( 1 43:00:00.0000 41:00:00.0000 13:00:00.0000 11:00:00.0000 )exclude( F 41:54:04.8000 41:53:27.0000 12:29:06.0000 12:27:52.8000 )Once you have modified the two lines of code, save that as myfile.scaThen run scasm.exe (downloaded from www.scasm.de if needed, get the latest version) by opening a dos box and typing scasm.exe myfile.sca. Now you have a bgl you put in your local scenery dir and the crane is gone. Bob B

Well, I have tried a number of times to get this to work, but to no avail. I am able to successfully create the .bgl file, but when I go to KSLC, the crane is still there. Here is the sca code I use:Header( 1 43:00:00.0000 38:00:00.0000 113:00:00.0000 109:00:00.0000 )exclude( F 40:47:44.4000 40:47:43.2000 111:59:05.4000 111:58:59.4000 )I have tried different coordinates, making the area bigger and smaller, but it still shows up. I still converted the minutes to seconds. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for your help.Doug

longitudes in the western hemisphere are negative. Also remember that the order is N S E W....smaller negative numbers are more east than larger. Try this:Header( 1 43:00:00.0000 38:00:00.0000 -109:00:00.0000 -113:00:00.0000 )exclude( F 40:47:44.4000 40:47:43.2000 -111:58:59.4000 -111:59:05.4000 )I just tested this code and it worked fine. Not sure why but most people mix up the order of the longitude like you did...remember you put the numbers in NSWE...you have to do it NSEW...Best,Bob Bernstein

It worked!! I wasn't aware of the negative number requirement. I'd seen it before on some other examples, but just didn't know what it meant. Thanks for the tips, Bob. Now on to other stuff!Doug
