I extracted that scenery you recommended and set the first item in the scenery path to it (as usual). But still no buildings.

The terrain is not a problem. It is from terrasync and i see 2 default brown runways from that.

Kind regards, Vincent

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

If I can, I'll try to explain, it's better to do this over Mumble as we can debug in real-time. You use the default Corine or 2.0 terrain, and place the object .stg's into their respective folders in your object folders in whatever scenery location your copy of FG uses. There's a material patch that isn't extremely necessary but does help make the terrain look early 20th century.

Open the new stg's with a text editor and read the lat and lon of the placements, that t's the foders they need to go into.

The artwork and 3D shape folder for LFGG-WWI goes into your scenery's Models folder. Copy and paste, the .stg's will find it.

You have to sleuth out what object folders are where the .stg's need to go to, and turn the old .stg's into .bak's that are replaced.

Another note: I may not be able to host this event/flight, the real world weather-gods have elected to aim the remnants of Super Cyclone Songha at the SW Oregon coast, and the we might have hurricane force winds locally. So I'm going to say this event is tentatively on hold. If I survive Saturday with an intact house, internet and power, we'll fly, Otherwise, :shock: :(

Well I'm still here, It looks like we're still good to go for tomorrow, see you all at LFGG @ the appointed time of 16:00 UTC

The weather gods are looking to bless this event with fair skies with maybe patchy fog.
