Combining BGLs ?

Recommended Posts

Is there a program that will combine multiple BGLs into one? I have several BGS as a result of working with SBUilder and would like to combine them for convience.Dick Boley @KLBE

Hi,SClink is very old and does not support the more recent BGL formats.Dick - you can append (merging) the projects files so that you will end with fewer BGLs. My personal view on this subject has changed a lot during the years. When I started to design scenery I did not like to end up with many files. I used to link (with SCLink) the files produced with Airport for Windows. At that time filenames were limited to 8 characters. Today I think the best is to use informative names for the BGL files and to keep things in separate files. This is extremely important for scenery compatibility. For example I know about 4 sceneries (payware and freeware) that cover Lisbon in Portugal. If one author makes a single BGL with everything inside, users have no choice. On the contrary, if the scenery is organized in several BGLS, users can pick up a part from one scenery, another from another scenery ...Regards, Luis
