    Default Importing DEM data into TSRE

    Working on a new route and I have DEM data in .tif files that I am converting via VTBuilder. However it looks like TSRE requires .hgt files. How do I go from .tif to .hgt file format?

    Found out that I can download .hgt files directly instead of DEM. So I don't need to convert them.

    Only problem I am having now is that I can create tiles and import the height data but for some reason I cannot terrtex the tiles. They are black. Although I can download the maps and they show up fine. Also the terrain grid shows up fine and I can edit the heights. Just can't color it or terrtex it.

    Do you have any terrain textures? I'm guessing not, since that's normally the only time they would be black

    I copied terrain textures from one of the MSTS default routes and can load them into the F2 terrain editing window but when I Put them to a tile nothing happens.

    Well now trying it this morning the put seems to work. Maybe I just needed to close TSRE and reopen it.
