    How to make reservoirs in FSX default scenery - video tutorials 1 and 2.

    Want to improve on FSX's rendition of reservoirs? In Part 1, Google Earth is used to make an Exclusion Rectangle KML to remove the existing lake from the FSX scenery. Then we use the FSX_KML utility to convert this KML into a BGL file for FSX. Next we create a new scenery folder in FSX for the BGL and, lastly, test that the reservoir has been excluded.



    In Part 2, Google Earth is used to make an Exclusion Rectangle KML to remove the existing lake shorelines from the FSX scenery and then the water body pathway KML's for the Upper and Lower Edersee Lakes. Then we use the FSX_KML utility to convert these KML's into BGL files for FSX. We install these BGL's into the Edersee scenery folder in FSX and, lastly, test that the reservoir has been successfully created.



    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Cheers - Dai. Cool
