CUP file oddities...

Post by wrinkledm » Sun Apr 12, 2020 8:36 pm

Having overcome most if not all the challenges with building scenery from scratch, I've run into an issue I can't solve. When I started this scenery build a week ago, I used our club's standard contest CUP file. I didn't modify it at all and it never bothered me that only turn points displayed in both the landscape editor and in Condor soaring's Free flight interface. (None of the airfield turn points showed) Now that I'm nearing the end of the build I thought that this morning I would update the cup file to come in line with how Condor likes to see the data. I've basically mirrored the original Slovenia CUP file format dropping several fields like the runway length, description, etc... and converted everything to meters. So, success... well sort of.

Now when I load the Landscape editor all the entries in the cup file show up just fine. :) Win!!! I've completely re-exported the scenery "except THE terrain textures" but for some reason when I launch Condor Soaring, I still see only the turn points and not the other entries in the CUP file. All the entries are set to a style of 1.

Any ideas on what the heck I did??? Help!

If you open a landscape for the first time it saves a copy of the cup file in mydocuments/condor/turnpoints. After that only that one gets loaded by the simulator and modified if you add turnpoints via the flightplanner in Condor.

Delete it in mydocuments and the new cup will show up.
