bgl area

Recommended Posts

Since I was not familiar with the Avsim Forum, I had already put my problem into the Simflight Forum under http://forums.simflight.com/viewtopic.php?t=30446 and at last somebody suggested me to put my question to a scenery builder in the Avsim Forum!In fact my question is: is there a utility which can visualize the area covered by a scenery bgl-file, i.e. the same data as produced by the program locbgl ( see http://www.scenery.org/_downloads/locbgl.zip ), but visually as a square or rectangle on a map ( does not need to bee extremely detailed map ) , but so that I nevertheless can clearly see in which area of a landscape the objects of a scenery file, and/or of several scenery files are really placed? Thank you for any reaction!GreetzJive1

No, I have never heard of such a program. BGLAnalyzer (or also the LOCBGL I guess) can provide you with the latitude/longitude information of the BGL coverage, but I never heard of a graphical tool to display this.

Hi.You could use [a href=http://www.jimkeir.co.uk/FlightSim]LWMViewer[/a] to show you the exact contents of the file for most kinds of terrain BGLs. (Stick with 1.3 for now, 1.4 is buggy). It won't display objects, though. If you then right-click and select 'Load this area', it will load *all* the default FS2004 files for the point under the mouse which should give you a reasonable map :)HTH,Jim Keir
