I have been trying to change the name of the Grain Elevator but have had no luck. I change the file names in giants editor but it still doesnt work. Not sure if i am missing something or if im doing it completely wrong. Also i am playing on a modded map called region of texas.

to change the name of station (the tipTrigger) you have to change a UserAttribute of the trigger.

First open the user attributes panel (in GE: menu bar -> window -> user attributes).

Then locate the trigger/station you want to change.
Find the actual trigger (a box) which has all the attributes, like 'appearsOnPDA', 'isAreaTrigger', 'onCreate', 'stationName', etc.

Now you just need to change the value of the attribute 'stationName' to what ever you like.

Note: The value for 'stationName' is a string, which is either directly used or it is used to find an i18n entry.
An i18n value can be defined in the modDesc of your mod.
This allows you to translate the stationName into other languages.

theres no 'stationName', 'appearsOnPDA' or 'isAreaTrigger in the user attributes'... and the xml doesnt change the name
