FS9 scenery database rebuild when FS is running

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if it is possible to force a rebuild of the scenery database for FS2004 whilst the sim is running, using FSUIPC or any other tool?

According to Microsoft is is categorically not possible. The code that makes the indices it uses only runs during initialisation. Believe me, the FS staff don't like it this way either because of the constant need to restart FS when developing scenery, but apparently it was the only "safe" way (presumably in the time available) to ensure stability.

You can force a scenery *reload* (there's an FS control for that). Whether that will get minor changes visible or not I don't know. But it certainly won't remove or include whole files.
