Create-a-sign

Recommended Posts

I just cleared all the wayward signs at an airport I'm accuratizing (<- new word). Now I'm at the point where I want to generate the new signs in their correct positions. I'd read somewhere there people are using the next size larger than what MS used originally (Size=2?). I've set the size to 3 then 1 then 5 and saw no difference with each sample placed next to an original. Is there something I'm missing or us there a deficiency with create-a-sign or bgl's?

I use size 2. Have you tried the same sign, in 2 or 3 sizes, next to one another to better guage the difference?

Yeah I have. ... I was creating the replacements in Size=3. I suddenly noticed that there appeared to be no difference in size. So I created two (size=1 and size=5) and placed them on either side of a remaining stock sign. All three were the same size???

I'll double check this later today and get back with an answer. Maybe I've been deluding myself thinking there's a difference!! BTW, are you using creatsign_n as your install program?

I can confirm that there is a dramatic difference between sizes 2 and 3 using creatsign_n tool.

sorry about not getting back righ away. No I'm using a program called CreatSign by Vladimir Svoboda. I did verify that the cmd SIZE=3 (or whatever) was in the generated XML code.

Not sure if this is the solution to your problem, but Vladimir released an updated version called creatsign_n which is FS9 compliant. You maybe using an earlier version which could be the reason you see no size difference. Check his site.
