    I don't know if it was officially announced and i can't find anything on the wiki.

    The game try to load a valid JSON file but it tell me that the file is missing
    a quick look at the log tells me what when wrong
    Code:
    ForestData::readJsonFormat|forest instances missing: 'levels/wip/wip.forest'
    Does json suported well?
    the indent must be the same for every file?

    Here is a small portion of the forest file
    Code:
     "header":{
      "format":"JSON Forest Data v2",
      "format description":"posX, posY, posZ, rotX, rotY, rotZ, rotW, scale",
      "version":2}
      },
      "instances": {
        "obj01": [
          [
            2828.732,
            460.8426,
            -2.898444,
            0.0,
            0.0,
            1.0000001028433914,
            41.50000313283435,
            1
          ],
          [
            2823.153,
            465.8889,
            -2.898444,
            0.0,
            0.0,
            1.0000001028433914,
            41.50000313283435,
            1
          ],

    >> valid json file >>
    Code:

                    1
                ],
    
    I think that makes the rest of the file 'invisible'

    I check json and it's valid on multiple sites
    I tried your tweak but it still don't work.
    i tried modify the header to be exactly like BNG files but it doesn't work.
    I try removing entry to have just a few trees but still don't work

    I can load utah forest file

    just tested, this file works well here ?! Could you PM me the complete zip please? Are you sure its not overlaying an older file in Documents vs game dir?

    You are right, it was an overlaying file problem. Its working fine now thank you very much.
    an invalid JSON was in Documents/BNG/levels/map/forest.json while the mods is in mods/unpacked/....

    Is there a console command that could display a warning in the console/logs to tell there is a duplicate file ?

    Just to get you informed, I written wrong data in the json (euler rotations instead of quaternion) so the mesh was all stretched weirdly and i was at 3 fps

    good to know :)

    I'll try to think of a way to add a warning for overlaying files.
