Hi Andre,What you do mean with the airport ground texture? Do you mean the texture on the aprons and taxiways or the texture placed on the ground (mesh) around the airport?

Do you mean>the texture on the aprons and taxiways or the texture placed>on the ground (mesh) around the airport?Thanks Arno I'm after a few things and maybe you could point me to the right direction...- I want to change the ground textures (mesh)- I want to read the BGL files (do you need to decompile and after change compile the stuff here?)Thanks for your help on my first steps to discover scenery design, as for graphics and aircraft design have a lot of experience in FS :-lol But want to change the default EHAM with a freeware update with payware quality or better :-lol...Because most of the 3d objects are in place...Thanks in advance and really appreciated your help,Back to some SDK reading for me ;-)Andr

Hi Andre,For most changes you will not have to decompile and re-compile stuff. With excludes and higher priority of new BGL files you should be able to do most things you want.If you want to change the texture of the mesh have a look at the terrain SDK and the resample tool. With this tool you can for example place an aerial photo on the mesh. Another option to change the texture type is updating the landclass.

Hi All:Certainly there will be others here that can better answer your questions than I, but in case they are busy right now and you want to look into this more over the weekend, may I suggest looking into Jim Keir's excellent LWMViewer V1.3 and LWMViewer v2.0 utilities at: http://www.jimkeir.co.uk/FlightSim/index.html.I havent dabbled with these recently, but I understand they are a part of one's essential toolkit along with the SDK's and their respective tolls and utilites. In the case of LWMViewer v2.0 (if you have the appropriate Shader 2.0 minimum capable video card), I understand one can modify landclass, move scenery objects etc.; potentially a true juggernaut in the FS world if we can just get Jim to work on it more for FS9, port it over to FSX, and write an even more detailed manual that caters to us newbies ;-) (I'm still a bit confused, and have had to set it aside numerous times!).Probably when cabin fever sets in this fall, I'll get ready for another ascent to the mountainous heights of scenery design... hopefully this time in FSX with newly updated tools!PS: Hey Jim: any hope for an FSX version BTW?Hope this helps!:-)GaryGB

You cannot just change a landclass pixel. A new landclass bgl would need to be made corresponding to the area you wish to change. Please see the Terrain SDK tools and documentation included with FSX Deluxe.-Doug
