EGOD - new layout?

This is project3000 at Shoreham while I placed it under the Documents folder
on my Windows box.


So I don't see it working like it's relative to FG_ROOT. In that case I wouldn't
see those objects right?

As a reminder, another issue with using SHARED objects is that they are not the same from one distribution to another

But if you have used --fg-scenery=/path/to/project3000 (as instructed) then you have simply redefined where FG_ROOT/Scenery is located, which explains to me why OBJECT_SHARED lines work for you.

"--fg-scenery=path
Allows specification of a path to the base scenery path , in case scenery is not at the default position under $FG ROOT/Scenery; this might be especially useful in case you have scenery on a CD-ROM.
"

So, surely, what you have is not portable to anyone who does not have all these objects in $FG ROOT/Scenery (whether what came with the distribution or they redefined it). No?

EDIT, PS: in case my original point has been overlooked here - I was looking for a way to make EGOD portable and simpler to install B)

I have not used --fg-scenery but I use the launcher instead.
To me at least it works in a portable manner.

That seems to work because the distribution has a "Models" Folder at its root along with "Objects". Shoreham's file (w010n50/w001n50/2941746.stg) is made up entirely of
OBJECT_SHARED Models/........... lines

So changing the EGOD distribution layout of folders from

to this

should make it work

But OBJECT_SHARED are still not relative paths :)

So the cut n paste would then have to change to. . .doing search and replace in 2876339.stg of
OBJECT_SHARED Scenery/EGOD/Models/
to
OBJECT_SHARED Models/

As an additional note: there are two other differences to OBJECT_SHARED lines:

OBJECT_STATIC lines objects are *not* cached and kept loaded, but rather freed with the tile (that is, when you leave that area).

OBJECT_STATIC lines animation XML files may contain Nasal blocks <nasal><load> and <nasal><unload> which are executed on loading/unloading.

Timi, out of curiosity: does your project3000 version overwrite the existing Shoreham scenery such as

At the moment I have no terrasync scenery installed at all.
If I had I suspect I'd see them both mixed up with each other.
