Hi Tim,The NAD83 and WGS84 datums are virtually identical, so I wouldn't worry about the datum conversion. The differences are inconsequential for our purposes.Just make sure your source data is unprojected latitude/longitude format.-------Justinhttp://www.fsgenesis.netHigh Quality Scenery for FS200x
