If the tracks you extract are in a subfolder, that will yield this result. Like if you use the option "extract to mynewtrack" instead of "extract here", then you'll end up with mynewtrack/mynewtrack/-files- which breaks the file references. Or if you have it like:

Code: Select all

Mx Simulator/2018 tracks downloaded/2018unadilla.saf

that will also break your references.

Actually, saf files have the complete pathnames inside so the references will still work if the saf file is in a different folder. It will change the load order though. E.g. "a/z.saf" will take priority over "b.saf".

Tracks that aren't saf files will break if you change their directory structure.

So saf's can be anywhere? It'll "strip it's parent folder by itself", for putting it simply? Or adding the parent folder.

However if I make a track and have @mytrack/statues/trees.saf where it has tree.png .jm and and .shp in it. How would I reference that correctly? Never figured that out really.

If "trees.saf" has "tree.png" in it you'd reference it as "@tree.png". Doesn't matter where "trees.saf" is located.

Guess this is why it never works for me.... Thanks!

Make sure the track isn't in a subfolder like Wahlamt said. What I said about .saf files doesn't apply to tracks that are just a zipped folder. For those the pathname has to be correct.
