    I used Library Creator XML to create a library with two objects. They were MDLs from FS9 Scenery. I notice that the name property in the XML created by Library Creator is the GUID. Can this be changed to something readable so when I use it in Whisplacer or elsewhere it would be nice to have a readable name.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    No, the name has to be the GUID that is how the BGLComp XML format is designed to work. In FSX MDL files you can store a friendly name inside the MDL file, which WhisPlacer then uses if I am correct. For FS2004 MDL files that is not possible.

    Hi,
    I'll be short. I have 2.0.2 version of Library creator XML.

    I add MDL objects (created with gmax) , create library, everything fine.
    But when I create object list for SBuilder GUIDs are in fs9 format and are diferent then displayed in window.
    In window are in fsX format. In right down corner is FsX.

    When I replace GUIDs in txt file by hand it works.

    The same problem is in whisplacer when I export model.


    example:
    GUID is :
    {CA80D2AF-99CF-4862-80E0-9F3E60A47F70}
    exported:
    CA80D2AF486299CF3E9FE080707FA460

    What I did wrong ? Are there workaround ?

    Thanks , Borna ;-)

    Hi,

    For SBuilder this is as designed. As SBuilder is a FS2004 tool it only understands GUIDs in the FS2004 format.

    I don't know if SBuilderX is supposed to work with the FSX GUID format, in that case I probably have to add another export option.
