Copy all four folders into your 'X-Plane 10/Custom Scenery' folder.

(Required)Install the MisterX Library version 1.1 if you haven’t already.




(Optional) Install the Autogate plugin if you want to have moving jetways and marshallers.

(Optional) Install HD Mesh V3 (tile +30-130) to fix several oddities with the base mesh.




Refer to the "Compatibility" section if any conflicts may arise. Also, remove any older versions of this scenery first.


Scenery load order:


Scenery load order in X-Plane 10 is defined by the file 'scenery_packs.ini', found in your 'Custom Scenery' folder.


Make sure this scenery package is higher up than 'Global Airports', HD Mesh, or any other scenery package for the San Francisco area.


If you fail to do so, the scenery may not appear correctly.




Compatible with HD Mesh V3.

Compatible with 'Runways follow terrain contours'. This option can be left on.


If you are running other scenery packages for this area, please refer to the 'Scenery load order' section of this manual.


If you own the 'Golden Gate' payware package, make sure that this scenery has a higher priority in your 'scenery_packs.ini' file. Additionally, you need to disable or remove the following folders as they are incompatible with this scenery:








I only see default buildings at KSFO! What's happening?

There might be a problem with the default scenery overriding this one.

Please refer to the "Scenery load order" section to see how to fix this.


X-Plane is complaining about missing assets!

Make sure you installed MisterX Library version 1.1.


I see no buildings despite installing the scenery/library and checking the load order!

Make sure you copied the correct folder and you don't have a folder within a folder.

After installing the scenery, the following four folders should be in your "Custom Scenery" folder:

KSFO - San Francisco Orthoimagery

KSFO - San Francisco V2

KSFO - Traffic Golden Gate Bridge

KSFO - Traffic Oakland Bay Bridge


You promised me AutoGates, but nothing is happening?!

Make sure you have installed the plugin.




Also, keep in mind that certain addon aircraft don't contain the necessary values for AutoGate to work.

An example for this is the JRollon CRJ200. You can either fix it yourself or contact the aircraft author.


There's a random piece of land south of the airport, can you fix it?


Unfortunately, editing the X-Plane mesh is a non-trivial task.

As a workaround, you can install HD Mesh V3 (tile +30-130) to fix several mesh-related issues.


I have "runways follow terrain contours" enabled. Does it cause any issues?

You might get some very minor issues, but generally it can be left on.


Cars are driving on the water under the Golden Gate/Oakland Bay Bridge. What's happening here?

This is necessary to make you able to fly underneath the bridges. Just wait a bit, and the problem should fix itself.

Please note that the "Golden Gate" payware package contains moving cars that don't align with the bridge models supplied here.

Check the "Compatibility" section on how to fix this.
