Thread: ORTS X.Testing Version Updates

    Default ORTS X.Testing Version Updates

    Can ORTS please stop downloading files which have not changed ?

    Having spent some time replacing its CLOUDS01.png Clear sky with a clouds one, ORTS not having an option for choosing a Clouds one, every X-Update overwrites it and I have to restore my version again !

    At first, i was having the same thoughts. But now, i just make a backup of the files i need, it takes seconds to do. I too have a different cloud and skydome PNG. After so many times of OR overwriting my own, i just let OR do the updates then restore my own files. I even have a edited version of the track monitor to only show the signals as static symbols with distance, as in TS2016.

    Thanks

    Yes, that's what I have decided to do now too and Backed-Up the entire ORTS folder, just in case I customize it again, not expecting this to happen !

    Ya, I have a subfolder in the Content folder called "clouds", and I rename whichever I want to use prior to my ORTS session. PITA, but no way around it for now.

    Hey Otto:

    Know how you made the Tracks Changer? Maybe you could make a "Clouds Changer" where you click on a .bat and it changes out the default clouds for some of the more dramatic ones?
