Well New to COF at least!
I have just spent an entire weekend installing my preferred FS 2002 scenery files into COF, to no avail. The end result was a complete re-install of COF and a decision to come here and beg for help :-)
I live in Melbourne Australia, for those of you who do not frequent this neck of the woods the scenery support in all versions of FS is rudimentary to say the least. As always the user community have developed a number of really good add-ons, the problem is I cannot get them to co-exist with COF.
My biggest problem is that I have scenery offsets and duplicated buildings (in Melbourne for example using Rick Skinners Mel1/2 scenery I end up with two MCG - cricket grounds and two Rialto Towers, both slightly offset). Same problem when I try to install any of the enhanced scenery or airports for Sydney.
Tried moving the priority in the scenery layers, disabling individual layers etc but cannot obtain any useful results.
Anyone have a reccomendation for some COF compatible Melbourne or Sydney scenery? I have the following components installed at present, all downloaded in the last 2 days so should be most recent versions:-

Main scenery I have tried is Melbourne:-

I am also confused about whether I should install certain scenery combinations, for example 'mesh' or 'landclass', are these compatible with each other? With the add on scenery I am likely to use? Is 'SATPAC' a mesh or landclass scenery? Does it matter? Help!!!
Final cry for assistance, when trying to import an AFCAD file for Sydney Airport into the system I am told I am missing a file named "austeafd.bgl" file, same for some other airports. I have searched everywhere for this file on the net and cannot find what scenery it is included with, any ideas?
