Installing new zipped scenery.


Recommended Posts

Freeware usually does not come with an installer so you will need to learn how to install it yourself. There usually are docs (text files) that will give some information on installation.


You should also start by reading our tutorial for newcomers, found under "Help" at the top of the page, or directly here:

When you say "Port angeles wa scenery", I assume you mean an addon airport. (?)

Most of such addon airports are not installed with an installer. So there will not be an .exe file.

You have to put the airport files in the correct fsx folders yourself. Manually, you copy them from the unzipped folder to the correct fsx folders.


In the unzipped folder you find the files you have to install. In the .zip file is also a file that is called: "Readme.txt". (or readme.txt ReadMe.txt or instructions.doc, Install.pdf. Something like that.).


Read that file to see how to install the addon. It explains what files go where. (and extra steps that are sometimes required.)



Ps: When you need more help with a specific file, give the name of the .zip file you downloaded from internet. Also say from what website you downloaded the file.

To be able to answer the question we need to know what exact file you are looking at (and maybe download the file from the web ourselves to have a closer look) .

(something like 'Port angeles wa scenery' is vague, a .zip file name and site is unmistakable.).

Happy flights! :D

Hope the install goes smoothly.
