View Full Version : Help with agn file format
16 Nov 2007, 13:03
Does anyone know the proper meaning/use of the 4 bytes following the vegetation count in FS2002/2004 agn files.
Although neither FS or Annotator seem to care what is placed here, some autogen scenery editors seem to be having difficulty reading files produced by my recent beta realease of Autotrees (freeware), and think this may be the problem.
Grateful for any assistance.

and think this may be the problem.
I presume you mean FS9 format agn? That is the total area of all vegetation rectangles. It is not the problem since no program (that I know of) uses it.

Many thanks George. I'm pretty sure I've got everything else right. Know any other pitfalls - I'm just writing veg data no houses - 'stock' 2004 header. As I say FS and Annotator have no probs. AgenT in particular is reported to be mis-reading/writing my agns. (admittedly only 2 cases)

'stock' 2004 header.
There is no such thing as a "stock" 2004 header, it is either there or it isn't. If it is there, it needs to be followed by the correct data.
ps. It isn't just two cases, I can easily generate as many as you wish.
