    DD EGGP Turn of 3D Grass

    I think the grass along with other scenery items( trees ect) are added using SODE. look in C:/Program data/ 12bpilot/ sode / simobjects/ digital design EGGP The XML file is in C:/Program data/ 12bpilot/ sode /xml you may have to edit the xml file hope this helps

    Not sure if any help to you, if you delete from the folder Horizon / VFR.Gen-X-2.0 / Volume 3/ area 1/ 2.4m photo / scenery/ EXXV3A1.BGL or change the name of the file to .off it helps with the autogen in the mersey, there are still a few snippets along the bank but it is much better , it seems to be an elevation issue but I have been unable to solve it any other way as yet Regards

    Scenary Add ons Crash

    Hello I have had some issues with CTD, freezing and other anomalies using add-on XML with one or another or a combination of addons, there was no logic to the CTD's which now apper to be resolved (fingers crossed) the issues seem to be resolved where I had duplicate add on "name" or duplicate "Layer" numbers, which seemed to upset the sim, so maybe worth checking. also I had issues with Autogen and certain devs AutogenDescriptions (spb) files. causing a freeze after the start up screen these issues I have resolved using FSdevelopers Autogen Configuration Merger, which worked well in V3 and now also there is a V4 beta version which now works. I do not know if this will resolve issues here but they sound similar and it seems to have helped me I use it for Orbx, sim720 and Earth simulations specifically. It may be worth a look Regards

    Earth Simulations Scilly Isles in P3D4

    Hello Kevin I think I have finally cracked it! I originally had been trying to add the autogen descriptions for each developer via the add-on XML, for example <AddOn.Component> <Category>Autogen</Category> <Path>I:\Prepar3d addons\Addon Scenery\Earth Simulations\ES-3D\Autogen</Path> </AddOn.Component> However there seems to be a conflict and although it works to a fashion I don’t think this method plays too well with others or the default P3dV4 autogen descriptions. I had a lot of anomalies OOM’s and CTD! I copied the Autogen folder from P3d V3 into P3d V4 adding the _Legacy flag, which had been merged previously with other developers descriptions using Fs developers Autogen Configuration Merger. This method fared better with fewer anomalies but still with issues. I then done a complete re install of P3d V4 (takes no time with the XML add-on scenery method) I then tried to use the Autogen Configuration Merger V4 Beta but it was not working for some strange reason. It appears that the Autogen folders have to be added via the scenery manager from within P3d. (Autogen Configuration Merger does not see the folder if added via XML). So I removed all the XML links to Autogen, I removed the _Lecacy flags from the files, run up P3d with Autogen Configuration Merger, this updated my files I then re added the _Legacy flags back to the files. I now have the P3d V4 Autogen descriptions merged and sceneries working 100% (with Alderney having all the correct folders and files) with no issues anomalies or OOM’s (fingers crossed) So it seems the method I was using for V3 (using FSDeveloper Autogen Configuration Merger) is the best method for me. (Albeit, having to juggle file names for it to work). Hope this is of some help

    Hi Nov having had much time on this . But I do have the full Alderney working at the moment. to do this I copied the auto gen folder from p3dv3 to p3dv4 I disabled the xml link to es autogen folder The auto gen descriptions from v3 had been merged using the auto gen merge tool Not sure why this works but was getting similar ooms using v4 versions. I was also getting others issues . Missing autogen at other sceneries . Orbx airfields. Now fixed. I assume there is a conflict with auto gen descriptions files when having more than one set via xml addons

    Sorry to keep hijacking this thread, but it seems to follow well I had issues with Earth simulations Alderney. It appears the file ES-Alderney_DTM.bgl in the Channel Islands/Terrain folder Does not like missing or corrupt season folders, and thus causing the sim to freeze. I found issues with ground texture autumn files and the Night files. Not being savvy with the scenery software utilities and unable to de compile. I replaced the files with a copy of the summer files (renamed to Autumn & Night as required) Crude I know but it seems to work (stopping the Sim from freezing at least), until a proper fix can be found. I now do not get my autumn or night textures (for now I can live with to enjoy this excellent scenery) I hope this is useful to others and maybe help towards finding a better solution

    As for Alderley . I have problems in most if not all of the season ground scenery folders and terrain folder . Having any one of them active freezes the sim during the splash screen at the start . I am not sure what to use to try and decompile these files and recompile .(this may or may not work I am just chancing ) Some more Google searching I think

    I am not sure what the sfx files are for but Now you come to mention it there is a distinct lack of seagull and church bell sounds when low and slow . So they may not have compiled well . I'll have to do some more checking The other 3 I think are airfield height . Light house and all the many greenhouse placements. Which appear now to be present and correct .

    Hello Kevin This may be of interest to yourself and others 5 BGL files I found to be troublesome in ES Guernsey I decompiled them to XML with BgL2Xml and then recompiled them back to BGL using the P3dV4 SDK bglcomp.exe EGJB_Guernsey_ARM_ALT.BGL (scenery/world/scenery) ES-Guernsey-SFX.BGL (ES-CI-SFX) ES-Sark-SFX.BGL (ES-CI-SFX) ES-Guernsey-Glass.bgl (ES-CI-3D) ES-Hanois-Place.bgl (ES-CI-3D) After plenty off issues with CTD and P3d V4 freezing at startup I now have a working ES Guernsey, not fully explored as 100% as yet but looking promising. Having similar issues with Alderney but no luck isolating issues as yet Regards

    HI Kevin Its strange one as all the others work flawlessly, the BGl's so far causing freezing / CTD If you have the same issue, it may help are EGJB_Guernsey_ARM_ALT.bgl ES-Guernsey-Glass.bgl ES_Hanois-Place.bgl The OOM is with Autogen set to anything more than NONE which again strange because I can set it Extremely Dense with all the ES other scenery. Regards

    Hi Kevin Can I ask have you had any joy with Alderney or Guernsey? Initially I started with Guernsey and I was having issues so started fresh. I have been able to get Scilly Isles , IOM , Scotland and Shawbury with no problems. having gone back to Guernsey and / or Alderney I am having CTD again, I isolated a couple of BGL's in Guernsey causing the CTD but then issues with the Autogen and OOM's. I have not had a great deal of time to try to isolate the issue so I thought I would ask first. Regards Dave

    Hi Kevin got that thanks , working OK I think, Try Layer 2 for the scenery world scenery , I seem to have it working with that, and disabled the alt file in P3d root S/W/S It puts the Scenery / World folder down at the bottom just above Default Terrain and below the Default Scenery in Scenery Library Regards

    Hi Kevin Thanks for that I will take a look, can I ask what do you use to decompile the .spd files?? Thanks

    HI Kevin I had the same problem, although when I paced the file in the Root P3D Scenery\World\Scenery folder the elevation problem solved, but I am unable to use a XML file to direct to the file. there doesn't seem to be a way to identify a folder as part of the Global or world like the textures. I have also found issues with Channel Isles where P3D freezes at start up ( I was able to isolate a couple of BGL's at Guernsey one of which was the Guernsey ALT in the scenery\world\scenery to solve this) but then there was a crash due to autogen . and similar at Alderney. I should have started with Scotland & IOM I have had no issues there Ill keep testing and trying Dave
