When I update a google earth model from the 3d warehouse by clicking the "edit " button I get this warning and I am unable to save file changes...

Hi Bruce,

This is weird. I don't presume you are using IE5 :shock:
BTW what happens when you answer yes, download the file and upload it again after the changes?

Thanks Gai!

When I hit yes it opens but will not allow me to save it. I am using windows 7 although I remember it happening with XP as well. I've had the problem for some time..but instead of fighting with it I just delete the original. Of course that removes it from the earth layer. I had a pro licence once upon a time although it was such a pain to upgrade it I just deleted it and removed it's traces as well. (GE may be next..lol)

Is there a better method for updating...i.e. would it be better to just keep reloading the original from SU without going back to the warehouse. As I said it doesn't bother me but the google guys must get tired of promoting the same models over and over.

Use Jim's ModelID Plugin to set the model ID in any of your files (this is the number after the ?mid= sign in the URL of the model) and you can revise any existing model by updating the original file in the WH rather than uploading it as a new one (with obviously a new link).

Although normally the "download > edit > upload" method should work, there are often glitches so I still have this little gem at hand just in case.

Thanks again Gai...that is a handy rb. I thought you might like to see it as it is a heritage building.

Nice one! Smart detailing with png's!

It is a little bit floating however

Also, sometimes GE goes nuts when you save the file (before export) at such a sharp angle close to the ground. Not in this case but it's just on the edge of it.

I corrected this one and it was added within a couple of days. The image is SU output only. Thanks again Gai.
