• 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.

Hi there

i have being trying to use scenproc to create extrusion bridges over a river , to no avail here is the script i am using

Code:
IMPORTOGR|D:\new work 2020\Vector 2020\bridges\bridges.shp|*|*|NOREPROJ
#
SPLITGRID|LOD5|*|FTYPE="LINE"
#
CREATEXMLBRIDGE|FTYPE="LINE"|FTYPE="LINE"|12|5|1|0.8|{9093ac0c-fb5e-433d-9e2c-c19d637ea664}|{e84e1684-5fe3-4f0e-81ff-8ab67698edf8}|{5ab44846-7d8b-4661-8329-8051536ab17a}
#
EXPORTBGL|FSX|Extrusion|D:\new work 2020\Vector 2020\Vector_2020\Scenery

I have attached an image with the result i get , it seems as if the bridge its self has no width , almost as if its a "Double Sided Plane"

2020-11-11_15-43-46-345.jpg


Using the example in the manual gave me the same result but with white lines showing across my screen as i change the camera angle , i am using the latest development release 2020/11/10 , have also attached the shape file i am using to create these bridges

any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Kind Regards
Dom

Hi,

One thing I notice is that you use the set of features from the bridge and from the ramps of the bridge. Maybe that is part of the problem? I usually select different features for this.

Hi there arno

would you recommend i use the standard longer road line features for the ramp then use on the bridges only for the part that passes over the river ?
i split the bridges into a separate shapefile , or would you recommend not spiting them and just using fclass filter instead in the createxmlbridg step

kind regards
Dom

Hi,

I guess it depends on the data you use. For the bridge itself you should only select those lines that are the actual bridge (e.g. that are above the ground). The set of lines that is used for the ramp should connect to these.

Which attributes you need to use for that depends on your data. The manual shows some examples for OSM data, but your SHP file could have different attributes.
