    Default Shape Errors

    I downloaded and installed the Seaboard Air Line, Florida Division Route. No problems. I downloaded and installed the 2 required rolling stock files: salrspk1.zip and salrspk2.zip. No problems. When I When I select the route and and try to "explore the route", I get a bunch of 'shape' errors:
    No extended shape for gr2150mstrt.s
    Failed to open shape file Global\shape\gr2150mstrt.s
    Shape failed to load gr2150mstrt.s
    etc.
    What have I done wrong now?

    Do you have XTracks installed?

    xtracks.zip is available in F/L, comes with a self installer.

    You are absolutely right, it is an 'L'. The 3 error messages are repeating over and over.

    That would suggest a peek into \GLOBAL\SHAPES to see if gr2L50mstrt.s and gr2L50mstrt.sd are there.

    If not, copy them in again from the NewRoads zip, or if you have the latest NewRoads w/self-installer, just run it again. This won't overwrite your Global Tsection.dat.

    The files are there. I copied the files from NewRoads.zip to \GLOBAL\SHAPES but it had no effect.
