• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

FSX SBuilderX : with a little help from my friends ?

Hi every body,
I want to use UTX Europe textures for roads, shorelines and railroad to rework misplaced roads and missing rivers and railroads. After a long search, I found that is possible by tweaking the Lines.TXT file. So I put in it few new entries :

[Texture.388]
Color=FF808000
Name=Utility - No Grass Corridor
Guid={2BDD9A8D-82DE-4b1e-8E27-CE6BE9F4C3CB}
Textures=none
Type=RDX

(above, the last entry in the proper Lines.TXT
below, what i add)

// UTE X

[Texture.398]
Color=FF808000
Name=UT_ROAD_3_B_URBAN
guid={300F151C-1600-428d-868A-483E906C0A42}
Textures=UTAU3A
Type=RDX

[Texture.399]
Color=FF808000
Name=UT_ROAD_3_T_URBAN
guid={310896D3-A126-48b9-BDEF-416CAC59B368}
Textures=UTAD3T
Type=RDX

[Texture.400]
Color=FF808000
Name=UT_ROAD_3_F_URBAN
guid={320B8490-1CA5-4736-9622-3B837460821C}
Textures=UTAD3F
Type=RDX

[Texture.401]
Color=FF808000
Name=UT_ROAD_3_B_RURAL
guid={301FD2D0-A151-4c63-9E2E-B555EBAB24D7}
Textures=UTAU3A
Type=RDX

[Texture.402]
Color=FF808000
Name=UT_ROAD_3_T_RURAL
guid={31124B0F-38A9-4def-B45A-0CA8908469D1}
Textures=UTAD3T
Type=RDX

...

But, although they appear in the Line Properties box in SBuilderX and I can select one of these new roads, it doesn't work : no new UTX road appearing, no compilation error.
I missed something, but what ?

Anyone here could help me to solve this ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dick ! Nice to read you again !
I made a bgl with only one UTX Road and Tmfviewer is unable to open the file. Too bad !
I found links to a post on avsim but it disappeared when the site crashed, few years ago.
The way I did the mod of LINES.TXT seems to be faulty. I can't find the right one. Could you help me ?

Many thanks.

JCP

Hi JCP

Sorry about the delay.

I think the problem is guid= should be Guid=

Hi Dick !
I'm so stupid ... say too tired ;) You're right : it's case sensitive.
Many thanks again for the help.
I go back to build some roads before I go to bed.

Oh no, not stupid. I've made the same mistake, and even forgot the solution until I messed with it a bit this time. :)

If you don't do it every day, you just lose the edge.
