Hi Frank,interesting question. The answer should be in your terrain.cfg, as it defines all the different road types and their seasonal textures. As far as I know, all of the ones you list above, except for the first one, are used by FS9 but I haven't checked specifically in the RD9*.bgl files (you can laod and decompile any one of those with Jim's LWMViewer).Cheers, Holger

FrankI'm not sure if this helps. I don't know of any default scenery. This is an area I did for my own use. Just south of Mt Rainier. I used to do a lot of backpacking there and wanted it to look real. If you're editing the textures or whatever, the logging roads should use those textures.Slew to N46 45.59 W121 54.51. About 10,000 ft, heading of 169. You should see the Bertha May Lakes and lots of logging roads. Hope this helps.

Try WAHR - Heathers Ranch . I used the dirtroads in ground2k4 there to connect the ranch to the default road so you cab drive to KCLM to the Hearther Air Facilities there.Joe W.

Thank you.I am interested in locating areas where the default scenery makes use of "dirtroads".As an experiment, I replaced the dirtroad bmp's with a blank bright yellow texture, and have not been able to locate any areas where FS2004 actually makes use of this texture.Is the location you mentioned a custom made road or original fs scenery?......frank
