Hi ChristenThe only way I could resolve this problem was to change the color in the Ms standard file Taxiway_marks.bmp, found in the main texture directory.This of course changes all default Airfields, which may not be acceptible.alot of small airfields in the uk seem to use this colour of white.I suspect this is not the ideal solution and I hope someone can prove me wrongRegardsDave

Hi,Hmmm, this may be possible.is the taxilines stored in the xxxx.AFD fileIf it is stored in a BGL file, it may be possible to make a scenery folder for the BGL file and a texture folder containing the repainted taxiline texture.i will try it as soon as i can.Chris

No, the taxi lines are not stored in the AFD files. The taxiways directional information for ATC is stored in the AFD files.

I tried to make a copy of the file taxiway_marks.bmp in the main FS2002/texture folder and to paste the copy in my own scenery/texture folder. I then converted the bmp to TGA 32bit using ImageTool. Went to Photoshop and changed its color. Unfortunatly FS2002 still reads the file from the default FS2002/texture. I do not know if there is a way to make it give priority to a copy of this file in your texture folder. CheersMichel

Just to give you some info on what I already tried.I tried to place a LoadBitmap command in front of the line code, because I hoped it would then use the last loaded bitmap, but without result.From the SDK you also get no info on how to load/change a color, so that gives me the feeling that it will not be possible to change the color (which is very disappointing of course).Arno
