Teesside Airport Screen Shots & a bit about Sbuilder

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've added some pictures of my Teesside airport scenery at www.fs9world.741.com This is the first time I've put all my models together to see what it looks like in the sim. Still a lot of work to do though. Please let me know what you thinkalso does anyone know why I cant get Sbuilder to make a .BGL file, I'm making photo tiles, it makes the images ok, but I cant find the .BGL. so I'm assuming it is'nt making one.stevo ;-)

Gday Steve.In the Properties section of SBUILDER you need to set the paths for where the BGL files are sent to once they are compiled.The folders: Main: the folder where you want SBuilder to copy generated files (if you set Copy Files = ONin the BGL generation tool). Applies to all types of BGL except Land/Water Class andPhoto BGLs. Secondary: the folder where you want SBuilder to copy generated files of type Land/Water Class and Photo (if you set Copy Files = ON in the BGL generation tool). Thisfolder should have no sister TEXTURE Folder.Once you have selected ( they should highlight )the objects you want to compile, make sure they are ticked in the BGL compilation part and allso make sure you have ticked the box for Copy Filesrgds Jeff

Hi Jeff,I've tried what you suggested but no go.This is what I have.In the properties scetion, I have Main set to a folder on the desktop and secondary to the scenery folder in the main Sbuilder folder.I have a Map placed in the Sbuilder main screen, I selected Photo tile mode and clicked the areas I want (only 9 lod13 squares).then I selected the 9 squares, click on generate BGL, tick make BGL's, make Bitmaps and copy files to BGL folders, and clicked compile. I dont know if anything is suppose to happen here but not much does, the pointer changes to a egg timer for about 2 seconds. If I look in the folders I set up for the BGL's to be copied to they are empty, The only place anything has been copied to is tools/work folders. In there are my 9 bitmaps and a file named 'PH_MAP01.scm'Must be missing something simple.thanksStevo ;-)

It does not explain why the files don

HI,I only live 15 minutes away from Teesside Airport, so I can just pop out and get any photos I need, Newcastle a bit far to go, but if any one can send me photos of Newcastle airport, I'll certainly consider it as my next project ;-)Saying that, i'm flying to Lanzarote from Newcastle next week so I can get a few pics then.Stevo
