Hey. Im trying to convert a FS15 mod to FS17 mod. It has an error on the Shapes fil and everywhere i read i just have to open the .i3d shapes file and than save it in the new GIANTS tool. But when i try to open the Shapes fil it comes up the an error

//" .... suerSB1600.i3d.shapes' at line 1. not well-formed (invalid token) "//

If i try to open the Shapes file in Notepad its just a bunch off rubbish..

Any hints?

(I have to say im fairly new to mod editing so maybe its really simple)

well this error really sounds like the file has been corrupted.

Anyway, there is a "suerSB1600"in the base game (fs17).
