Thread: Need Help with Blue Sky Scenery

  1. #1

    Default Need Help with Blue Sky Scenery

    FSX-SE
    Windows 10


    I downloaded & tried to install Blue Sky Scenery but the Readme file was pretty much no help at all. Zip File Name - BSS_AFCADs_0718.zip It's on this page - http://www.blueskyscenery.com/GNB_South3West.html Please give instructions on how to do this so it shows. What I did so far which did not work.


    Placed the 2 KPRC.BGL files in my Addon Scenery/scenery Folder.

    Placed all the contents of FSXsceneryworldscenery Zip File into my FSX/Scenery/World/Scenery Folder per Instructed.

    Placed the large contents of the Scenery Folder into my Addon Scenery/Scenery Folder. I don't think this was correct. Large content, thousands of files now in there Now. NOW WHAT?

    Help needed. Scenery does not show up like shown on Blue Sky Page. Thanks in advance.

    Those are the AFD (Airport Facility Data) files for the airports, not the photoscenery files.

    The photoscenery files will be in GNB_South3West_FSX.zip.

    That is a big bunch of files (4971 files) to add to Addon Scenery\scenery. I would be tempted to give them their own scenery area.

    If you want to change your file setup, you could search by date to isolate those files.

    The ChiliView Series - Buena Vista, Central Colorado Reg. (KAEJ)

    Bean............ i was able to search by date and found 4973? Files. I CUT & PASTED THEM TO A FOLDER. Now what should I do with them?

    So I installed "The photoscenery files will be in GNB_South3West_FSX.zip" into my scenery Library & activated, Still nothing. I noticed there is No Texture Folder with the DL as is with all my other Addon Scenery. What am I missing? Also, there is no Airport KAEJ but I did find where the scenery should be in Buena Vista Colorado. No Scenery though.

    The problem is that you heard about blue sky and freemeshx only half an hour ago. You immediately downloaded in installed.
    Instead you should have googled the subject for as long as you needed to understand it all. What it is. And how to install it.
    There are plenty of threads about this, why waste that valuable resource you have available.

    1. Create a folder like C:\BlueSky

    2. Inside that folder create a Scenery sub folder.

    3. Paste all the bgls from Bluesky into the sub folder.

    4. Start FSX and add the scenery to the Scenery library in FSX.

    I have 14,892 buttloads of BLUESKY scenery .bgls in my Addon Scenery/Scenery folder. Not in any particular order (alphabetical) covering Washington, Oregon, California,, and Wyoming. You need to start FSX and watch the loading bar adding the scenery before going to your free flight screen.

    Be SURE not to add any scenery like this with FSX running!

    Mr Zippy - FSX was closed. I downloaded the one scenery GNB_South3West_FSX.zip and installed as described above. I DID NOT install FreeMessX, I only downloaded the Torrents. Those are sitting in a separate file folder on my desktop. I installed GNB_South3West_FSX.zip as Instructed in it's Readme. I then closed FSX and then re-fired FSX & watched the Loading Bar adding the scenery. Still there is nothing. KEEP IN MIND - Although I am just getting back into FSX, I have owned the game & been a member here in this Group since 2006 which is longer than some of you gentlemen. Yes I am rusty at the do's and don'ts of installing scenery & aircraft, but I am not a total NOOB. Thanks for any help you guys can help me with. It would be nice to get this particular scenery working but if it won't work, it won't work. BELOW ARE PICTURES OF WHAT I'M SEEING AT BUENA VISTA COLORADO.

    il88pp - I heard of Blue Sky & Freemeshx long ago, I just never DL'd any of the scenery. Yes, when it was mentioned I did go dl one scenery and tried to install and get it working. As far as Freemeshx goes, I only dl'd it to a folder on my desktop, have not installed it yet because I need to research it some before I attempt it. Thanks for your input.

    What I mean is, you said you found the install instructions no help, but installed it anyway. And you put loads of files in folders without being sure. It sounds a bit rash.
    If you find install instructions unclear look for threads from people that asked help with installing.
    I probably did too, back when I installed it.

    After the fact, yes, but hopefully before the next one.

    The instructions for BSS_AFCADs_0718 I found to be no help. Not the instructions for GNB_South3West_FSX.zip. Slow down and read I think you once mentioned to me or someone did. LOL

    Like I posted in Mr Zippy's reply thread, I've been a member here in the group since 2006, I've owned the sim since before that, forgotten it's been so long. I recently reinstalled the box edition and then uninstalled it and dl'd FSX-SE so I'd be current............. So, I do have some experience and allot of rust. So, it may seem rash but it's actually I like to try to figure things out on my own if I can..... So, I installed the scenery going back to what I've been able to remember from years ago, allot of trial and error, mostly error but everything can be fixed is my mentality. So I tried and failed, I did research Google & Looked for previous posts but came up empty, So, next step was to post it to the group. Still can't get the scenery working, frustrating but I'll keep trying. I am totally lost on the FreeMeshX as it downloaded Torrents and I have no clue. There are NO Zip files as the page says there should be. Any help here again would be appreciated. Maybe I need the FreeMeshX installed before the Buena Vista Scenery will work? I don't think they have to work together but it's a learning process and maybe someone will help. Thank you
