    AIBTC02 Adding Duplicate Routes

    For some unknown reason Aibtc02 is adding duplicate routes to the TrafficBoats.bgl. I did a little experiment. I decompiled the original TrafficBoats.bgl and checked the RoutesBoats.kml. The numbers were 400, 401, 402, 404, etc. I then compiled the same files back to TrafficBoats.bgl. The file...

    Can anyone tell me what LandClassPoly to use to make a parking lot or large area of asphalt? There is one for cement, but I do not see anything that would double for asphalt.

    Breaking Polygons into Lines

    Tried searching this but didn't have any luck. Where rivers enter lakes the shorelines show through any rivers made with a polygon. I know I can break a polygon into a polyline. It will always break at the beginning and end of the polygon. This will take care of the exit or entry...

    PolygonHole - Order of.

    I am seeking some clarification regarding PolygonHoles and Hydro_Polygons. It is my impression that a PolygonHole must follow a Hydro-Polygon so that it nows which water to attach to. Where I am having problems is with some PolygonHoles not showing up. It would seem, from the results I...

    Is there an easier way?

    Have tried all the airport excludes trying to fix a problem with some buildings showing in my river.:( Cannot find anything in the SDX that tells me how to exclude a default airport, although there must be a way to do it. I really do not care if the whole airport goes as it hasn't been...

    Shoreline and Water Problems.

    1. I made a polygon using the exclude_water. 2. I have used the Add Path to put water along the coastline. (See pictures) I do not connect the ends of the polyline or I end up with a polygon. I tagged the polyline Hydro_Polygons_Generic_Ocean_Perennial. I have done this three...
