    Merge Tool - time for a dumb request

    Hi Arno Here's a dumb user request to catch a typical "operator error"... Any chance of a warning [dialog] when the input folder is empty? Sounds stupid but I was stumped for too long not understanding why the tool wasn't processing until I went back and checked the input folder I'd specified...

    Couple of quick observations...

    Silly user error on my part but might be of value for someone: After introduction of types like Double and Integer with newer versions, I started having errors with no accompanying "friendly" message but I worked it out to be in the comparison of an integer parameter with a double constant...

    Recent Changes timestamps

    Hi Arno I'm a bit confused by the timestamps on the Recent Changes database (SceneryDesign.org). I recently downloaded what I thought was the very latest version and installed it. It still comes up "new version available". When I look at the timestamps, they appear to be in September which I...

    Autogen Merge question

    Hi Arno In the Merge Tool, when combining vegetation polygons in overlapping tiles from two areas and they are intersecting or overlapping polygons, how is the vegetation type 'processed' or 'resolved'? My assumption right now is that you create polygons for each type and that they will...

    scenProc Progress Bar

    Arno - I'm just guessing here :rolleyes: but can you confirm that the progress bar for SplitGrid "runs" for each input file or set of objects loaded before SplitGrid is called? For example, if I load 4 Shapefiles, the progress bar will run from 0% to 100% four times... Silly question but, trust...

    ExportBGL output file [name] problem

    Hi Arno! I'm having a recurring problem with writing out effects files - lots of effects (about 1.2 million) over a wide area, so lots of files... What's the methodology behind the file naming? The step seems to be working fine producing a series of "Starting writing", "Finished writing"...

    Application Versions/Builds and identifying them...

    Hi Arno Happy New 2016!! :D I know you and I may have "talked" about this before but most recently it's come back to bite me a couple of times and caused a couple of hiccups. I'm just whining about a minor niggle so push this to the bottom of the "things to think about" list. The topic, in...

    Compile Parameters

    OK - I'm sure this has been raised before and is thoroughly explained in the documentation somewhere but I can't track it and it's been nagging away at me for months now... Apologies for probably raising it as a question: can someone explain the options in the Compile Parameters dialog that...

    Licensing one or more object/effects libraries

    Hello! We're looking to license, for a reasonable fee, libraries (preferably) or individual 3D objects and effects for unrestricted use in our commercial products. Objects would primarily focus on buildings (some airfield related but mostly residential, rural and urban) focused on UK...

    Runway Starts

    For some reason when trying to add Runway Starts using the normal method, ADE is telling me none are needed. None of the runways have starts. Have you come across this situation before? Any clues I can follow to hunt down the cause?

    Oh dear, yet another wish list feature. :-)

    This would be really low on my list and not feature anywhere on most people's I bet. I just wondered if there's any way to add a log to the Merge tool or even save the merged "configuration" - i.e. what areas have been merged. Absolutely not a necessity, just a mere luxury for lazy add-on...

    HEADINGFROMNEARESTLINE angle

    Hi Arno I'm still getting a slight angle offset when using this step but leaving on offset value of 0. The objects are somewhere between 5° and 20° angled from what I think is the nearest line (the one I'm trying to line them up against). I wonder what I'm doing wrong. Could it be anything to...

    Prepar3D v2 - scenProc can't find BGLComp

    This might be solved already somewhere but I can't find it... I think I have the paths set up in Options OK - pointing to Prepar3D and the SDK. Everything runs fine, including autogen autocorrect etc. However, as you can see, when trying to EXPORTBGL it says it can't find BGLComp and to check...

    What am I missing here?

    Forgive me if, in my ignorance, I'm missing something obvious here! I have two areas of photo-scenery and relevant agn files. I want to keep them separate. But they lie next to each other and share a common border with some common agn tiles. Obviously this means they have some agn grid in...

    Identifying Releases

    Arno Is there a way of matching releases as scenProc runs with the description on the website - as you know I was working with a couple of different ones for a while. Want to make sure I'm running the right one. scenProc keeps prompting me that there's a new version but I thought I'd downloaded...

    ProKey problem after reinstall

    Hi Jon I did a re-install after moving ADE between drives and then updated to newest version. Now I can't see how to get my ProKey functionality back. Looks like something got "confused" - doesn't seem to want License Key when I first run but doesn't turn on functions. Wonder what I'm doing...

    HELP!! Crash on SPLITGRID

    I don't know if anyone has come across this before. Hopefully I'm not repeating someone else's problem. I seem to have something in the shapefile data (all polygons) that causes SPLITGRID to crash scenProc - no log file when run in batch and only a dialog to say it's stopped working. It's...

    P3D v2 Autogen Editor and Region problem

    Hi Anyone seen this problem? I'm adding a new autogen class. I copy default.xml from Autogen folder in Prepar3D folder into SDK Environment autogen folder. I run Autogen Editor. It opens a dialog of "Validation Features" listing every region (for REVXLIB1, REVXLIB2, and 3) with a Warning...

    Running for Prepar3d with no FSX

    Arno Is it possible to set up scenProc to run for Prepar3d (v2.1 in my case) using the latest SDK without FSX installed. Right now it looks for FSX paths. I point it to Prepar3d folder but it doesn't work -- still looks for FSX. Strangely, I have a "dummy" FSX.exe in that folder anyway and it...
