Converting a map from 2011 to 2013

Post by GeneralWayne » Mon Feb 24, 2014 9:59 pm

Hi, my name is James, I'm a 'professionel' map maker, I make maps, I edit maps and so on. Before I edited over 40 maps to 2011 Farming Simulator.
Though to my problem in something is, I'm in love with a map from FS 2011, I want to convert this map to Farming Simualtor 2013, I know it's VERY hard to do it and some just say: Forget it, just make a new one mate.
The fact is, I just wanna know, can I convert just the terrain? And how?
I mean, I don't need to convert buildings, scripts or anything like that, the models is pretty esay to convert, I just want the terrain converted, because it's the only one you can't remake just the same as the orginal one.

So please if you have anything that might help me, please write to me.

Thanks,
James Wayne

No need to convert the terrain. Just replace the old one with the one from FS13, that's all. Takes like maybe 2 minutes, depending on how fast GE loads the default map (to export the terrain) and your map (to import the terrain).

It doesn't work, I can get in to the new map for fs2013 but then the textures doesn't work, so how am I going to make the texture to work on a terrain.i3d model from 2011?

Don't even get in to the game :P A soon as I import the new .grle files the shape of the map changes and then it doesn't work anymore...

The shape of the map is changing? Because of copying the GRLE files? Very unlikely. They only contain information about the fruits, the fields and the animal navmeshes (information to create them), nothing else.

Well, thats what happens, when I replace the old grle files with the new ones the terrain of the map changes the shape to the orginal one from fs2013 :/

Then you must have copied the map01_dem.png, too. That's the file for the shape of the terrain.
