Problem - Inserting a small dock into VS.

Postby ShipAddict » Fri Oct 22, 2010 7:15 pm

Hi,

I have recently been trying to place a small dock into the Aegean Sea scenery by following this guide. However, despite carefully following the instructions my dock does not appear in the game.

I expect I'm making a simple mistake somewhere down the line, but I really have no idea what! If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful. I have attached the objects.txt file to the bottom of this post.

Thanks very much.

Regards,
Mike

Try to replace -23.598056 by 23.598056 (positive) ?

To get the longitude and latitude, start VS and open the map view during you are playing "M key", on the spot where you want the object to be placed make a (Ctrl + left click).

Go to your specific scenery folder and open the "objects.txt" file, place the cursor on the next available line and paste the coordinates (Edit and Paste) or (Ctrl+V), This copies both values, after that type your object parameters after the second coordinate.

Maybe that helps you ! ;)

Hi Panelman,

I gave your second option a try using the Ctrl + click method, and I'm pleased to say it worked perfectly! I didn't realise it was as simple as pasting, I was converting the coordinates to decimal using an internet converter.

Thanks once again, much appreciated!

Cheers,
Mike
