I'm brand new to the giants editor portion of modding FS15. I know all about modding the game with basic mods but I recently wanted to get into editing a map so I don't have to remove a ton of trees by hand. I'm trying to edit the Ringwoods v5 map by Stevie and I'm trying to open in Giants Editor v7.1 Not sure if I need a certain version of the editor or if my computer cant handle the map size or something. After I load the i3D file into the editor, all I get is a black screen. An error log was showing up at the bottom but it has disappeared now making think I'm making progress but a map never loads. I have read/heard in multiple places that when the editor takes a bit to load just wait because that is normal. I am committed to getting this fixed as I love the game and this map in particular. Any guidance would be appreciated. I have an AMD FX 8350 Processor (8-Core) and a Nvida GeForce GTX 780. Also 16GB of RAM. Not sure which of those matter for the editor but I run the game fine so why would the editor be any different?... Thanks for any help!

This is what shows up in the Console after the map loads for 15-30 secs during a black screen:

Try this, Open the editor (Latest Version 7.1.0) and from the file menu choose OPEN MOD. Select the modDesc of the map you want to open. There may be some texture files that need to be updated and if you do it this way GE may be able to correct the problem. I am not sure on this but you should try it.

I hope it works for you.

You need for each FS version the appropriate editor. That means you cannot use the GE 7.xx for game versions lower FS17. Use the GE 6.xx instead.

A few hints to the error messages:

"Warning (performance): Texture *.png raw format."
That's merely a warning, but for performance you should convert the PNG to a DDS.

"Warning: Old shape file format .."
Save the file as binary i3d and reload it. In most cases the GE adjusts the file.

"Warning: Unsupported I3D foliage feature 'growthNumStates'."
This is obsolete for FS17.

"Error: Could not load *.wav, 8 bit PCM is not supported."
You'll have to convert the sound samples to a supported type.

I'm having the same issue and I can't find a *clean* version of the 6.x editor. All the ones on the mod sites are infected & only 7.x available here. Any suggestions?

Edit: NVM I found the path to 6.0.5 32/64 on GDN
