Where does a Landclass BGL belong? And does it kill USA Roads?

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the dumb question - I've downloaded the FS Genesis beta landclass and am running 2k4 now; it automatically installed into 2k2, but does not for 2k4.I assume it works with 2k4, though I don't know for sure!Also, I'm planning on purchasing USA Roads - will a landclass file like this stop USA roads from working?Thanks,Andrew(I know, I know.. no such thing as dumb questions.. just dumb people...)

Hi Andrew,Justin suggests placing his landclass file into FS9SceneryBASEScenery. I prefer to install it as a separate add-on scenery (e.g., FS9Addon Scenerylandclass USA FSGscenery; don't (!) add a texture subfolder). Either is fine but the difference is that Justin's approach means the file will always be active whereas I have the option of disabling it for areas where the default looks better.Landclass determines the arrangement of the basic ground texture tiles and their associated autogen. Lakes, rivers, roads, etc. are drawn on top and thus products such as USARoads are not impacted. If anything a more accurate landclass file will help improve USARoads asit places urban and suburban areas missing in the coarse default landclass file.Cheers, Holger

That will disable it should you want to.Joe W.
