Good Afternoon,

Hopefully someone can assist with this question. I have started to edit a FS19 map in GE and all is going fine, it reopens again etc. The challenge I have is I purposely deleted a shed however the shed has a couple of doors that I cannot see in GE. Whilst in GE the shed and the doors are gone (as planned) however when I load up the game the doors appear and despite clicking all over the place in GE I cannot see to be able to click on these doors.. I want to remove these doors like I did the shed.

Any help on how to resolve this would be great,

Objects not visible in GE are inserted by the map's 'defaultItems'. The exact name and path of this XML file you'll find in the "modDesc.xml" <map .. defaultItemsXMLFilename=..
Often you can already identify the object by its label or file name or its position.
Else you must lookup in the xml <item .. filename=.. for the right i3d file.

To remove this object you can simply delete the complete entry <item .. />.
Notice that this affects only a new game. In a savegame you must delete this item also from its "items.xml".

Thanks Bilbo, I have learnt something with your response, thank you. I searched through defaults items and all the xml files in the map folder without luck. I have searched against the positions that I know and I cannot see where this is hiding. Any ideas where else I could find these infamous doors.

Start a new game, save and quit. In the savegame "items.xml" you'll see all items. Doors almost always have the tag <animatedObjects>.

If that also doesn't help, you must insert (import) all defaultItems into the map manually, one after another, until you find the right one.
Use the defaultItems.xml to get via <item .. filename= the name and path of xml and i3d. This i3d you import into map. After importing, copy the location of the item from <item .. position=.. rotation=.. to the i3d transform attributes translate and rotate.
