Generic textures problem in FS2004

Recommended Posts

Guest cwright

I use the SDK tools in the usual way to create a bgl that contains the terrain mesh and custom generic textures (this is now incorporated into AutoAsm). It works fine in FS2002 but not in FS2004. When I try to load the scenery in FS2004 two things happen:1. The scenery load process takes about five minutes (normally about 40 seconds).2. The terrain appears correctly. The custom generic textures appear but they are *totally* blurred (possibly the lowest mip map resolution). I re-made the bgl with terrain mesh only. The load time is normal and the terrain appears correctly with the default generic textures. I made another test scenery and this showed exactly the same problem. The input for the custom generic textures is a .raw file. It appears there is some form of incompatability between the two sims relating to generic textures. Does anyone have any ideas? Many thanks.

Hi, Dick! Your post reminded me of something - and it's fixed! Many thanks. I've added to AutoAsm the ability to draw images to define terrain mesh and generic textures / landclass. Great for creating your own personal island.... The program converts your landclass .bmp image to a .raw image and feeds it to the SDK tools in the normal way (the .raw happens to be in the right format, which is handy - for example a zero index will create water). I am using the default generic textures, so there is no need for special textures in the texture sub-directory. However - when you mentioned the texture directory it rang a very loud bell. A year ago I had a similar problem. And the solution was to delete the empty texture directory. Sure enough, in FS2002 I had deleted the directory. I deleted the texture sub-directory in my scenery in FS2004 - and it works perfectly! So it's not a FS2004 problem, it may be a FS2002 peculiarity carried over into FS2004. I must say my scenery looks much better in FS2004. Microsoft have done a great job. Let's hope they don't drop the ball by making us wait almost a year for the scenery SDK! Once again, many thanks for giving me the solution - even if you didn't realise it! Best regards, Chris
