I have recently taken the time to explore creating some much needed scenery @ 3 of my local airports. Now that it is finished, I need some help and directions on how to share it. This may not be the correct Forum to ask this of...
I used the latest ADE (AirportDesignEditor) v1.47 to change the appearance and layout. I also used items from the scenery libraries of EZScenery & Rwy12. I have everything like I want it now... well almost. Apparently there are some areas of the stock airports which are not able to be changed... or I have not discovered the secret yet. I cannot add scenery items anywhere the ends of the runway at 8A6 (Wilgrove Airpark). In real-life there are trees at the end of RWY.17, and there is a fence, a road and several auto repair garage buildings across from the end of RWY.35. I have spent days trying to figure out how to trick FS9 to display the items. They are showing to be in the BLG.file properties... but they do not show up visually once FS9 is loaded, even thought it builds a new scenery base on startup each time I try to load it. I am stumped!
My other question is this: Now that I have the scenery as finished as I can get it, HOW do I share it with my father on his system? I am running WinXP.Pro 32bit. He is running Win7.Premium 32bit.
Do I just make sure he has the same scenery libraries, and copy the BLG. files to his FS9/Addon Scenery/Scenery folder???
I have the exact same FSG mesh loaded on his system as mine, plus everything (sceneries/textures,etc.) else is the exact same too except for the WinOS, CPU, GPU.
Any ideas anyone can give would be most appreciated. I also want to figure out how to package and upload the scenery to Flightsim.com for everyone else to enjoy too.
