    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

    Did you have any luck loading up that replacement stock gsl file? If so, did your stock scenery showed up? 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

    Hiya Dasuto247, I'm just a little unclear. Question: Enabled how? What do you mean by "enabled" exactly?

    Hiya Dasuto247, Lets take this one step at a time. When you say: "I tried replacing my gsl file with the stock one, but that did not restore gsl buildings...". Are you saying that swapping in the stock GSL (ground scenery layer) did not restore any of the stock scenery objects at the stock airfields? Are you using the standard cfs2.exe shortcut? MR

    Skylane, For an understanding of what I'm up to, please look at this thread: http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?100871-A-few-requests-for-Operation-Menace/page2 Read posts #2, and #5-8. Essentially, what I am proposing is this: The French aircraft carrier "Bearn" had run to Halifax, Nova Scotia to transfer French gold bouillon reserves and keep it out of German hands. While there, she was loaded up with twenty-seven P-36s for the French Air Force, six Buffaloes for the Belgians, twenty-five Stimson 105s, and forty-four SBC Helldivers. (I will substitute the SB2U Vindicator for these) After the ship left Halifax the Dutch and Germans capitulated or were overrun, so the Bearn went to Martinique, where she remained until 1944. Now, suppose that she received word...

    Good morning, Would we happen to have a ETO Dutch skin for Thicko's Brewster Buffalo? I could use one for a historically-plausible "what-if" I'm doing for the Dakar set.

    Devildog73, They contain .dp files by Tango Romeo, so they cannot be uploaded to SOH. All of Collin's ships are located here: http://simviation.com//lair/cfs2shipyard.htm

    You'll have to start from scratch, but here's the "clean" stock qcb from CFS1. Its already set up for the ETO and includes all categories and the common allied and axis aircraft used in that theater. Just take the *.txt extension off the end. To avoid any loading issues, take native CFS2 models that match the aircraft types in the qcb and rename their folders to match the names in the qcb. These will become your basic "stock" models which always populate the AIRCRAFT directory.

    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
