    Default Addon scenery file in FSX and the actual Scenery library

    Two days ago the "Addon Scenery" file in FSXSE and the" scenery library" were in agreement. Things were normal. Today, when I opened the "Scenery Library" folder all of the "addon Scener" files opened EXCEPT the "addon Scenery-scenery" file. I got everything else except what sits in the Addon Scenery Scenery file BUT I did get a bunch of ORBX scenery which does not appear in my "Addon Scenery" file. Where did I fall off the turnip truck?

    Did you go to FSX/AddonScenery/Scenery folder and check to see if anything is in there?

    Default Addon scenery issues

    The addon scenery-scenery fil is full of .bgl files, probably upwards of 200.

    Default Addon Scenery

    Any other ideas Zippy? I can't understand it opening all the other folders EXCEPT the (scenery) folder.Something to do with ORBX maybe?

    Just trying to understand what you mean by not opening up the scenery folder. Are you not seeing any of the scenery that's in the AddonScenery/scenery folder? Have you tried cutting that folder out and placing on your desktop, then start the Sim and see if it shows a loading bar? Then shut the Sim down and replace that scenery folder back into the Addon Scenery folder, restart the Sim and see if the loading scenery bar shows that it's adding the scenery.bgls back in.

    Anytime that scenery.bgls are added or taken out of that folder, there should be a scenery loading bar at the time you start FSX.

    After that, I'm stumped!

    Not real sure that scenery folder will show in the library unless you add it using the add area feature. Did you scroll all the way through the Library?

    The Addon Scenery/scenery folder contains .bgl files that automatically load when FSX starts. They do not appear in program Scenery management screen, nor should they....you do not have to add them inside FSX. Hope that helps.

    +1 I thought that, also! That folder acts like the subfolders World and Global in the Main Scenery folder.
