Hi,
I placed almost 2000 taxi lights all over the airport by objectplacerXML. I wonder how can I change to FSX style GUID. Or I need to change it in word or note pad.
Thanks Arno for many tools.
Best Regards,
Tic

Hi,

ObPlacer XML only supports FS2004, so it has no function to convert to FSX notation.

Are you also rebuilding your object for FSX or do you just want to change the GUID to the different notation. If you just want to change the same GUID to the different notation, you might save the effort, since it does not matter for the compiled BGL file.

Else I would probably just use a text editor and the find-and-replace function to change the GUIDs.

Thanks Arno for the reply.
Just one quick question. I did ground poly in FSX and I found that my object (taxi light, landing light) was shift away from there original place. Actually they do not move at all but the ground poly seem to stretch out a bit.
I have to place 2000 lights again, what a painful job.

Hi,

There is another topic about that moving on the forum. Most likely your ground polygons have moved, not the lights. It is something with curve of the earth in FSX.
