Hi,

I have just downloaded 'carrierop1146' and 'harfsx' but unfortunately have no idea on how to install them. I have tried copying and pasting into flight sim files which works, but when i load up the game i can track nothing of these. I am well and truly clueless.

Could i please have some tips?

Thanks

Welcome to the forums gepreck 😀

First the 'carrierop1146' - that is a file for FS2004 and being a carrier I doubt that it will be compatible with FSX. I installed another FS2004 carrier yesterday into FSX. It installed allright and showed up but was sitting in the middle of the ocean on a sandbar and when I put an aircraft on the deck, it would only place itself below deck in the holding area.
I have this file in my archive and while I could take you through the installation procedure for FS2004, I won't do this for FSX because I'm almost certain that at least a small disaster would be the result.

Generally, when installing any kind of downloaded files into the flightsim, the best way is to extract the contents of the .zip folder into a temporary folder and then look for installation instructions in the readme file or any other document.

Now the 'harfsx' - I don't have this particular Harrier and I'm aware that it has supposedly been updated for FSX. A couple of members here are happy with it ➡ https://forum.flyawaysimulation.com/forum/topic/23201/harrier/

This one shouldn't be too difficult to install. If you have problems, post the installation instructions here and we'll go through it together.

Just remember that in FSX the Aircraft Folder is a subfolder of SimObjects.

Let us know how you're getting on.
