Re: Revised 2019-20 PGA TOUR Season schedule

[...]the Houston tournament seems to have gotten a new venue other than at the Redstone Golf Course I see that too now, thats a shame :sad: I really like Redstone or as it apparently has been renamed to - Golf Club of Houston. The one they replaced it with looks much less unique or interesting to m...

Re: Returning to Links 003

Ray, did you every solve the problem with no sky showing? I had been away from Links for several years and just installed on my Dell laptop and have the same issue as you, even after installing the 1.07 patch. Several laptop users including myself have found the solution in the first post of the fo...

Re: New trees for planting set?

I believe so at least. I dont think TGA files can be left with a "transparent" RGB channel so it creates an automatic background if there is none. It shouldnt make a difference, although I have encountered some alpha channel oddities with tga files so it may be best to make a black background yourse...

Re: StrackaLine Green Contour Map Info...

Thanks Dan, I think Im gonna mail and ask about a few so if anyone else have any courses they wonder about post here and I can ask for you at the same time.

Re: Wade Hampton Golf Club

Two ideas: 1. You probably did this already but just to make sure - check the Water to Sand(rocks?) seamblend for incorrect properties like you mentioned about the other one. That said, I checked it out just now and it looks to me like its set properly (useful tip: you can test these kinds of things...

Re: New trees for planting set?

I agree with checking it within APCD (within Links is even better), but one thing one can do to mitigate or even eliminate that step that I use to do whenever I make an object: Create a quick background layer with some plant/grass-like green colour fill, another with skyblue, another with black and ...

Re: PGATour.com Leaderboard

Thanks for highlighting this :smile: It might be a feature that will only be available for some courses, I had already noticed before that different tournaments have varying degrees of information on their menus like that such as pin locations etc. But if its something they plan on doing for courses...

Re: Poplar Trees

I'm wondering whether poplar trees are commonplace on golf courses other than in NZ where they are pretty common. You can see some of the ones I have created in the screenshot. The tall thin trees. I know them as "Lombardy Poplars" but maybe they have other names? Anyway, are these something people...

Re: New trees for planting set?

what format ie jpg, png etc do the trees need to be for apcd and what size should the image be What LeWAW said, however if anyone wishes to help out - many of us designers would be comfortable working with a PNG with alpha channel if anyone thinks those are easier to work with since its a simple ma...

Re: Abu Dhabi GC Beta

Yea those guys could even make all the trees have diamond-coated leaves if they REALLY wanted :laugh: I looked it over in practice mode, seems like it will be a very playable and competitive course but Im not completely sure on what to comment on because Im not sure which things are going to be chan...
