Ground Object Error

Post by vmateen » Mon Sep 24, 2018 5:02 pm

Greetings fellow air people,

I've been working on making my own objects and maps (which is taking much longer than I thought), and I've run into an issue. The object I made shows up in sceneryeditor (I tested on both versions), and in the fld text file, but not when I run the game. Has anyone run into this issue?

Where did you install these ground objects? For Mac instances of YSF there is a global location (documents/YSFLIGHT.COM/YSFLIGHT) and also internal to the YSFlight application.

It is also worth double checking your .lst file paths are correct.

Feel free to ask me a question! I'll try to answer it as well as I can or recommend a more knowledgeable member if necessary.

Further to what decaff_42 said, please share any error messages you get while starting YSFlight, or while loading the scenery you created. That will help us solve the problem.
I'm back.

Sorry for the late response and the limited info with my original post, I got caught up with life and hadn't been able to get back on and respond. I found out my issue, I was only including the .dnm and .srf files in my .lst, but forgot the .dat. I almost don't even want to admit I made an oops that big, but I did. Thanks for at least trying to assist me though!
