FSX help with opening a bgl

Ok so im redeveloping cosford ab in the uk. To cut a long story short i already have some freeware that works in fsx. alfs uk airfields. its good but i was looking to change the frequencies as they are out of date. easy i thought open up the bgl then simply use the change frequencies button. not quite as when i open up the bgl only the runway appears and non of the other scenery such as the aprons appear as they do in fsx so when i replace the file back into my addon scenery folder, the rest of the scenery is gone.:mad: i have tried leaving the old bgl and the new one in there as well but only one loads, the one that has the lowest ;letter eg abcosford over afcosford so i have no scenery or no new frequencies. redesigning the airport wont work as for some reason when i put an apron into the design fsx freezes(program not responding) and windows closes it, so cant use fsx. does anybody know how to resolve this truly bezare problwm?:confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

I am not sure what is happening. FSX Planner has not been supported by the developer for a number of years now so it may be harder to diagnose the problem.

It seems that you are opening perhaps one of a group of Bgl files. Are there more than one with this scenery? I assume it is a third party addon and you are not trying to modify the stock airport?

Correct I am but all the objects that don't work are in the one file I change. The other files still display in fsx. All I miss is runway taxiway parking apron. The building (1 other file) and the windsock(another other file) are still displaying.

OK - can I then confirm whether these are showing in FSX Planner and not in FSX or are they missing in FSX Planner also?

They were missing if I open the bgl direct but if I transfere to an XML it will show in planner but neither way will show in fsx. The original fle off the Internet is the only file that all the data works in.

Can you give me the download details for the addon? I can't check it in FSX Planner but I can check it in another airport design tool for FSX.

Unfortunately I am unable to get the download from there.
 
It does download but takes a loooooong time before it starts to do so. :)
I have the zip and can post on if needed.

It opens however when u then compile that to a bgl it will simply not show anything when u put it back into fsx. The apron is missing but buildings there as there a separate file to the one edited.
 
Well there are one or two height problems for the runways and starts, but the only apron which doesn't display is the "clay" one.

Of course it doesn't fit with photographic scenery:



This is my version:

 
I was not using photographic scenery though now will. The taxiways were not showing either though after I edited the frequencies or the runway. Ur version looks better but that's not the same bgl if I'm right as I tried that one. Unfortunately waiting to get the vfr scenery to fit that particular Cosford and its slightly slower on my dinosaur pc.
