W001N61 missing  

Postby cj75s » Wed Aug 14, 2019 9:57 pm


I was placing some oil platforms in the northern north sea i.e. North east of Shetland, using the UFO.
On completion I pressed 'e' and went to the ufo file and copied the Object_share lines ready for pasting. The file told me the objects were placed in W010N60/W001N61/xxxxxxxx.stg
so I browsed over to W010N60 but could not find W001N61.

Here is a copy of the output file. I've only included the first platform object as the others were the same really.

<PropertyList><models><model><legend type="string"/>
<heading-deg type="double">0</heading-deg>

As you can see the stg path type is set to that folder w001n61but it deosnt exist in its parent folder w010n60.

Could I just create the folder called W001N061 within the folder W010N60 and write an stg file with my placed platform Object_share data?

The idea is that oneday when I find my old joystick I shall then have 2 sticks to fly a chopper out there.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi cj75s,

W001N61 is all ocean, which are not generated. So even though this is a valid tile location, the fact that it is an empty location is why you cannot find it.

Yes, you can manually create the folder. Custom scenery should be placed into a folder separate from the TerraSync maintained folders to avoid having TerraSync overwrite your changes.

Then configure the Launcher to look for scenery in this folder
Launcher > Add-ons > Additional Scenery Folders > /fgCustomScenery/mystuff
