Can you make an 'unpaved' scenario 'paved'?

Dear Fellow Pilots;
Is there any way to convert an 'unpaved' scenario to a fully 'paved' scenario in YSF? Sure would be nice to fly float-planes in the "North Kyusu" scenario...lots and lots of water! ;)
Sincerely,
John

Yep.

Quite easy.

Just open scenery editor, load the .fld

Then create a rect region of type runway, over the entire map.

Save, done.

And just another tip you can also make the water areas splash(kind of)using the motiom/path function under edit= insert=motiom/path=motion path property pop up box =water.Althought your aquaplane will not splash unless you crash.

On the YSFlight homepage, there is a link to download the main YSF files and the Scenery Edit files.

Dear all,
I downloaded the Scenery Editor. However, I am having problems loading the .fld files into the editor. Sorry for requiring this 'hand-holding'. But, could I possibly have step-by-step instructions on how to do this. Sorry, not much of the programming kind, but willing to learn.
Regretfully,
John

Hi koshyajit,

I don't know much about the Scenery Editor so I can only be of limited use to you. However, I recommend looking at the topics found here: http://forum.ysfhq.com/viewforum.php?f=147

More specifically, I recommend trying this topic: http://forum.ysfhq.com/viewtopic.php?f=147&t=4731

Let us know if it was helpful :)

This was very helpful...but very comprehensive. I have respectfully stored the tome on my computer should I ever be brave enough to attempt a scenario creation, on my own, from the ground up. But, in the mean time, I have addressed my specific question to the author of this work.
Thank you so much...all of you. The only way you guys could be more helpful is if you were sitting here, guiding me in person! Hehe!!
But, that's cool...I am learning a lot. :)
