They are right on the point of where the default road ends but as ive since removed them from FS9 and replaced them with my own Roads BGL file i would have thought they would have gone.

    Good Freeware bad for business?

    I think with the quality of scenery and aircraft available plus the tools to construct them, users haveto realise its no longer a hobby that one dabbles with. The hours required to build up ones knowledge and expertise to create software demanded nowdays should be rewarded if the Author...

    If you want more control over MakeMDL when you export as a BGL file, either rename or del the following two files. MakeMdlAircraftParms.txt MakeMdlSceneryParms.txt They are just a command " /BATCH " wich tells MakeMDL to get on with the job , this was a decision from the publisher that...
