Just a quick question. Where do you put scenery files when you download them. I looked in the FS Scenery folder, and it sub-divides into areas in the world 😕 . Also, does anyone know any good scenery for the airport in Spain, LEMD. Thanks a lot for any help 😀

In the FS9 folder, there should be "Addon Scenery". Put it in there.

To install it, in FS9 go to SETTINGS - SCENERY LIBRARY. Click "ADD AREA". Find the main folder of the scenery you downloaded in a A.S. folder, click ok, restart FS, and it should be there!

I d/l my scenery files to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\Scenery\World\scenery and then do as was mentioned re:FS9 settings install restart. When you select the option 'install new' you will be prompted to manually retrive/select the files themselves so it is sometimes good to put all of your addon scenery in a special folder for easy access. Good for organizing also.
