• 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.

VTP2 button problem

I'm using a new sbuilder to me - the sb205. I've used sbuilder FS9 many times before, btw.
I've added the poly background. I clicked the VTP2 button but the contents are greyed out so I can't tick Assembled & the empty bar to get to 1183 Grass................I'm stumped unless someone can tell me what the problem is...............

Thank you,

I have discovered that I didn't select VTP2 in the window before the above.....I have now done that & have added 1183 Grass.

BUT, having selected all polygons, then clicked the BGL button from the top menu, & ticked ‘Copy Files To BGL Folders’ & then Compile when
I get to my designated bgl folder (where the map & the saved SBP file is) there is no spanking new airfield BGL..........if Sherlock Holmes reads this will he tell me what I have done wrong or not done ?
Thanks.
 
Hi Terry:

If you check inside the SBuilder version 2.05 (aka SB205 aka SBuilder for FS9) root folder, you can open the SBuilder.ini file in Windows NorePad, and you should see a default assigned BGL file output path listed ex:

[RecentDirs]
BmpDir=<drive letter>\SBuilderFS9\Tools\Work
SaveDir=<drive letter>\SBuilderFS9\Tools\Work

Hope this helps. :)

Bon jour Gary,

Thank for this......I wonder if it was because the poly button was depressed ? I clicked the pointer button & this VTP2 window 'lit up' & the assembled option worked.
I've not had this kink to cope with before & was quite stumped..........now I can finish Tingwall !
Best wishes,
Tery.
