    Did you go to CFS2 -> Update Airfield List? and CFS2 -> View Airfield list? If neither of those worked than all I can conclude is that some where along the line in your efforts to remove stock airfields you must have edited some key CFS2 file that keeps all of the airfield entries straight. Perhaps your cfs2afd.bgl? Or maybe your allrunways.BGL? Or maybe your runways.BGL? I have zero cklue as I have never messed with any of those files myself. You need to restore that information. Hopefully whatever file it may have been that you edited you kept a copy of the stock version so it can be replaced? All I know is that the reason why the airfields are not listed has zero to do with editing the GSL. MR

    Hiya Dasuto247, Does your GSLEdit window look like the screenshots I posted? The column on the left side of the GSLEdit pane lists all gobs that have GSL scenery objects loaded into them. If there happens to be an airfield located in that GOB then it is listed, too. Hi lite that gob and see what options are available in the menu bar. Don't forget to read Lindsay's MB GSL Editor Tutorial. I'm leaving it up to you.

    Hiya Dasuto247, Glad that did the trick. WRT making just the scenery objects at Henderson disappear. What I would suggest, just as a start, is that you Make a copy of your currently loaded gsl file and rename it early-42.gsl . Then, make a copy of your stock cfs2.cfg file and rename it cfs2-early42-GSL.cfg

    Hiya Dasuto247, Somehow, somewhere along the line, the wrong dsl is being called out. I have been trying to come at it from one direction. But based on the above discussion I think Blood_Hawk23 has hit upon the heart of the matter. Please open up your cfs2.cfg file and check under the section for a line that reads something similar to

    Good call Blood_Hawk23! I think you may have hit on it! This how I have done my cfs2 set up, too. I have a bunch of CFS2 shortscuts calling out different cfg files for different areas: \cfs2.exe" /CFG:EmptyGSL.CFG; \cfs2.exe" /CFG:MR_DEI_GSL.CFG; \cfs2.exe" /CFG:MR_PNG_GSL.CFG; etc., etc.. I also have specific CFS2 short cuts named after the cfg file they call out.

    Dombral, I took a long, thorough look at the model, and it would require a lot of work for an overhaul. First, it would need a multi-lod model, and second, a VC would have to be created from scratch, plus it would need a new panel and a .dp file. That's a tall order to ask someone (Allen, Shessi, Oldwheat, whomever) to do on short notice. My plan right now is to use the SB2U Vindicator as the primary attack aircraft, with Dewoitine 376s for the defense of the carrier. If someone can overhaul the Helldiver, then there would be two weapons with which to raise havoc. The Buffaloes and Hawks would be flown off and then based at the airfields in French West Africa, along with the Farman and Potez bombers.

    Ok. Well, lets forget about Tulagi and Midway and all that stuff for now. Lets concentrate on getting CFS2 to start with the stock cfs2.gsl file loaded and all objects showing. Everything else starts from that datum. So, let me get this straight. When you click on your CFS2 start shortcut, the one whose pathway reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Combat Flight Simulator 2 - Early\cfs2.exe", you are starting a copy of CFS2 that has nothing but the stock cfs2.gsl loaded. Right? And that stock cfs2.gsl file is sitting inside the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Combat Flight Simulator 2 - Early\GSL folder right? Not nested inside another folder but out on its own inside the GSL folder?

    Hehe. Thanks for posting that info. That is danged strange. OK. Try this. Go to Options -> Settings -> Scenery Library -> Scenery Object Density -> set it to "extremely dense" if it isn't already set to that. MR

    Messing with the scenery.cfg file has nothing to with and will have zero effect on whether GSL scenery objects show up or not. Nada. What fooling with the scenery.cfg file will affect is whether the airfields themselves show up- the runways and any API Macros, i.e. "static" objects you may have added when building an airfield in FSSC or similar scenery-building program. But it will have zero impact on which GSL objects show up. Trust me on this. MR Just out of curiosity, to make sure we are both on the same page here, what do you refer to, what do you mean, when you say GSL? What sorts of visual things in the sim do you think of when you think of GSL scenery? Please bear with me. You understand that GSL "scenery" objects exist quite independently from any thing that is handled...

    So, with that stock gsl file loaded, you go to a stock CFS2 airfield and there are no scenery objects visible? Please do me a favor. Right click on the shortcut you are using to start CFS2. Right click inside the two boxes hi-lighted in yellow in attached screenshot, select all, copy and paste here in reply so I can see what they say. Thanks. MR

    OK, got it. Thanks. Well if you added (enabled) scenery objects using GSLMan to a gob that already had scenery objects installed the objects that were there first will disappear. So you now have GOBCheck and GSLEdit from Martin Wright? MR

    GR;
    How are things down there in Beaufort land? Been awhile since I have been there to see "Jerry" at Discovery Diving.
    I have installed your Forts and just have to comment that they are FANTASTIC! Now, not to sound like a dolt, which is why this isn't a Public message, but where do you put the "US PILOT" that is part of the Forts D/L? I have put it in the "models" section and met with negative results. I keep getting "Pilot not found" Do you want it in the "aircraft section" just like TL's crewmen?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

    No GR. I threw only in HS.

    My choice for Discus came from Symphiosidon Discus, a tropical fish, and one of my "pets" that my kids and wife like a lot. Unfortunately I donīt have enough space for a german shepperd, my favorite dog.

    I think itīs important for you to know that until last week, before asking and getting from Talon the link to Caleb Flerkīs dp tutorial, a dp file for me was like reading a chinesse document.

    But fortunately there is always something new to learn every day.

    Ghostrider I tried your operation Hailstone mission ( Truk strike 1E ) and my computer just handled it as far as the frame rate goes. I am using a e6400 dual core with a evga 8800gt video card. I think that was the most intense mission I have flown with cfs2 so far. A fantastic looking mission. olaf

Biography:
Things are not always as they seem - the humans on Planet earth had always assumed that they were the most intelligent creatures because they had accomplished so much - the wheel, New York, wars, and so on, while all the dolphins ever did was muck around in the water having a good time. The dolphins, on the other hand, always assumed that they were the most intelligent creatures on earth - for precisely the same reasons. - Douglas Adams - "Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy"
