    G2XPL Tutorial

    By James Lambe

    G2XPL

    Congratulations on downloading G2XPL. This wonderful program will allow you to create photo-scenery titles for you to enjoy whilst flying X-Plane. The author of the program and myself hope you get many hours of enjoyment from it.

    G2XPL is a very powerful program and one that is very easy to use. Following the outlines in this tutorial, you will soon be proficient in the making of your very own photo scenery files.

    Note: The use of a fast unrestricted broadband service provider is highly recommended as any tiles over LOD15 zoom will be of considerable size (the higher you go, the larger the size).

    So let's get started.

    Installing G2XPL

    After you have downloaded G2XPL you will need to unzip the files. From your downloads folder, copy and paste the zipped G2XPL file onto your desktop. Right click on the G2XPL zip folder and select extract from the drop down list or use your zip manager (if installed). The unzipped folder will appear on your desktop.

    I recommend you place the zipped folder into your recycle bin so you do not use the wrong folder.

    Right click on the G2XPL folder and select Cut:

    G2XPL

    Open your X-Plane folder and select:

    C:\X-Plane 11\Resources

    Then select the plugins folder and paste the file into it:

    It will look like this:

    G2XPL

    Now please follow the next step closely. Open the G2XPL folder and copy the named file g2xpl.xpl and paste it to the plugins folder, it will end up like this:

    G2XPL

    That's it, G2XPL is now installed into X-Plane.

      I see my FSEarthTiles tutorial for FSX has some competition within X-Plane!

      Next time I load up X-Plane, I'll definitely give this a shot!
