Compiling doesn't save my changes

#1
Hi!
Im very new to ADE and scenery in general.
I have found my local airport for fsx but I want to use it in P3D v4.4. I have used it in earlier versions of P3D v4, but now it doesnt seem to work anymore. I think I am doing something wrong with the BGL file and ADE.

The thing is there is a bit of autogen right next to the runway, like trees and bushes. Before I reinstalled my computer I just made a Flatten mask class map exclude autogen polygon (Airport background) compiled the airport and replaced the old BGL file. It worked.
Thing is i forgot to save the BGL file from the old harddrive, so I thought i'll just do the same thing again with ADE. But now when i compile the airport the work ive done inside doesnt seem to save. If i open the bgl file again after compiling all my work is gone. It looks like the original file.
I have given ADE full permisions and also running as admin. Also the scenery folder have full permissions.

Thanks in advance
Filip

When you create terrain polygons, ADE compiles two BGL files (at least) - the main ADE airport BGL file, and a __CVX file containing the ground polygons. When you open the airport from the BGL file into ADE, you indeed lose the terrain polygons, since they are in a different BGL file which ADE does not read.

And if you are not moving the _CVX BGL file into an active scenery folder along with the ADE airport BGL file, then the terrain polygons will not appear in the sim.

Thank your for the clarification. I must have forgot to also move the CVX file because now it works flawless! Thanks
