FSX Terrain SDK

Recommended Posts

Anyone else having problems with the FSX Terrain SDK? I am trying to make some photo real terrain. file:///E:/Program%20Files/Microsoft%20Games/Microsoft%20Flight%20Simulator%20X%20SDK/SDK/Environment%20Kit/Terrain%20SDK/Terrain%20and%20Scenery.html#Example3CustomTerrainIn it it says "To run these examples, drag the MillenniumImage and DayNight_Variations .inf files over the Resample tool icon." But wheen I do nothing happens. Am I missing another file needed or does it put the file somewhere else?

Hi,It is probably better to try to run the compiler from the command prompt. In that case you can see any error messages that are thrown to you. If you do not run resample from the folder where the In the INF files you mention, it is written that the output is created in the folder called output. So you might want to look there as well.

Thanks for the help I got that part working. Im just a little confused on how I place the scenery where I want. (Lat/Lon) and how big it should be."It is assumed that the image has been projected to the WGS84 Latitude/Longitude datum. The latitude and longitude of the northwest corner of the image must be known as well as the spacing (in decimal degrees) between the image pixels."Northwest of my image is N37 03'21.76 W113 33'26.42 How would I get that into?[source1]Type = BMPLayer = ImagerySourceDir = "SourceData"SourceFile = "bh1.bmp"ULXMAP = -122.308ULYMAP = 0XDIM = 4.27484E-05YDIM = 4.27484E-05Variation = Day

Hi,Besides that position, you indeed also need to know the resolution of your image (so the amount of degrees covered by each pixel). Without that information it is not possible to place the photo correctly in FS.I don't know where you got your images from, but usually they should come with such additional extra information.
