looking for the default map file that fsx map uses

Matt.bradford Guest

wanting to see if it is possable to replace the default map that is used with the default map veiwer in fsx . i cannot locate the file that the map veiwer uses. i did find a map.dat file in Microsoft Flight Simulator X/Uires folder

does anyone know where the map file is, or if it is possable to allter or replace it

ok I found the mfd.xml it has the lines that setup the map. I would like to know if there is a way to display the same map that my FMC uses for my MFD

here is the map lines for my MFD

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I can see that the coding is not the same

the mfd.xml resides in my b737_800.cab in my panel folder
the fmc.xml resides in my Alrot_CitX.cab in my panel folder

Realized they use the same map. just needed to remove the water and elevation line codes in the MFD.xml.
