HOW TO ACTIVATE SCENERY FILES IN FSX ND FSXSE

When you extract the file, there will be a folder with the name of the scenery 
and 2 folders called scenery and texture inside of it. Now move the folder that 
contains the scenery and texture folders into the FSX addon scenery folder.

FSX Addon Scenery Folder Location:
32 bit: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Addon Scenery
64 bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Addon Scenery


(ONLY copy the folder that has the scenery and textures folders inside of it)

ACTIVATING THE SCENERY:

Start up FSX if it isn't already and go to scenery library.

In the Scenery Library tool, click on add area and navigate to the addon scenery folder.
 Click on the folder that contains the scenery and texture folders and press ok.

Windows 7 Users: There is a small glitch when adding scenery in Windows 7. 
After you have selected the scenery to be added, the OK button can be pressed but nothing happens.
To get around this, simply press OK, then left or right click on any of the white space in the
opened folder box, and the scenery will be added.

About FLIGHT PLANS

Some  of our Missions/Flights DO NOT provide the user with a .PLN Flight Plan. You Must use the enclosed indicated
 "ROUTE/ROUTES and use your instruments to fly to your destination.


You might get an "ERROR" message when you load the Mission/Flight, just hit "ENTER" and they
will load. (FSX is lways expecting a Flight Plan).

 

ABOUT AIRCRAFT
Notice That you might get and error loading Mission/Flight when you do not have the "aircraft" used in the Mission/Flight . We provide
 the Freeware zip file Name you should download and install. We do not always use the default FSX/SE aircraft since , sometimes, they 
do not correctly represent the aircraft used in real life for the Mission/Flight, and we strive to be as "real"as possible
