• Hi Rodeo,

Thanks for your response. I remember reading something like that - that the coordinates might be wrong. I did a small area to try and get the hang of it to start with - here is the TFW:

0.00000715255737304688

0

0

-0.00000536441802978516

167.878081798553

-44.6379393339157

and TMC:

<[list][region_list][]

<[tmcolormap_region][element][0]

<[uint32] [level] [9]>

<[vector2_float64] [lonlat_min] [-44.63 167.87]>

<[vector2_float64] [lonlat_max] [-44.71 167.98]>

Does that help? Thanks again,

Tim

• Official Post

Your lonlat_min and lonlat_max make no sense. Please go over the Wiki again and follow each step carefully.

-44.63 is greater -44.71 !

• Let's face it - what does min and max really mean? Poor naming convention!

The following is correct for the Northern hemisphere. Why don't we use lonlat_NW and lonlat_SE which should be useful anywhere

<[tmcolormap_region][element][0]

<[uint32] [level] [11]>

<[vector2_float64] [lonlat_min] [-122.33642578125 48.583345413208]> <<< NW

<[vector2_float64] [lonlat_max] [-120.97526550293 47.6949977874756]> <<<SE

• Hi guys,

Thanks heaps with that - yes, it is New Zealand and I didn't realise the order (on a learning curve). It's worked now and very much appreciated. All the best,

Tim

• Exactly.

Moreover, as long as lonlat_min is NW corner and lonlat_max is SE corner, whatever the hemisphere, min and max work for W and E (i.e. W<E), but for N and S it's the opposite => N>S !

This can be pretty much confusing. For that reason I ignore the min / max and think NW / SE instead.

Cheers

Antoine

• I've created the files in the scenery\images folder. However since they must be moved to Documents\Aerofly FS 2\scenery this

folder is on my C drive which is my SSD boot drive with 250 GB. No way do I want these files to go there. I have 1 external 2 TB drive, internal 2 TB and 3 TB drives. I want them to go on any of these. How can I do that given the Steam setup of AFS2.

• Hi,

For Information.

From the latest news blog:

For defining a custom scenery location the location must contain the sub-folder “scenery”.

Maybe it's me but I could not get this to work without adding a "images" folder also.

My working directory is E:\My Scenery\scenery\images\uk

• Is this correct form:

<[string8][J:\AFS2\Scenery\Images][]>

Where J is the HD. I tried this form and when I checked the log and the main.mcf file afterwards it had defaulted to the original.

I get this warning in the log file:

0.28-module_config: loading config file 'C:/Users/Len/Documents/Aerofly FS 2/main.mcf = WARNING: property 'J:\AFS2\Scenery\Images' is not a member of type 'tmsettings_sim' hash=11719998322492873262.

• Hi,

This is how I have mine set. Folders set up as above.

<[string8][extra_user_folder][E:\My Scenery]>

Hope this helps.

• Great. Thanks.

• can not open aerofly_fs_2_sdk_tools_20171004.rar

"This is not a valid rar-file"

any other source?

• the standard winzip full version, usually opens everything.

the original sdk didn't cause trouble, this updated version does.

can't tell anymore what size etc., gave up on modelling until ipacs gets things sorted.

• Hi Almdudler,

I had the same problem with an older version of 7-Zip. I updated to the latest version, 16.04 and the archive opened just fine. Hope this helps.

Best,

• Jeff,

After some time off I'm back to geoconverting, but with the latest version its going wrong. I'm not getting conversion of the full area covered by FSET. I see there are new parameters such as "write_images_with_mask" and I'm reading about "snapping" but its spread across so many discussion threads. Are the changes and new rules explained in one place somewhere?
