The scenery is great.I took my son to OshKosh a couple of years ago and he took the helicopter ride around the facility.I took him on the virtual tour in the Bell and he recognized everything right off.DAng, but this sim flying is fun.(I know, it doesnt beat real thing, but who can get to the airport and fly five minutes before you have to leave for work???)I hate to say this, but (stammer, stammer, choke,choke, cough, cough) (murmuring under my breath) thanks, Microsoft and (in a clear, loudi voice) EAA.JOhn in Indiana

well,it looks realy good on the pictures, i downloaded and installed it, but it does not show. Only the default. Since i am living in germany i use the german professional version, could that be the reason? I do have the adventures, but not the scenery.Thank you for supportUwe

empty???????????????this is the small parking spot, on the other side parking is twice as big with lots of tents, all photoreal ground texture....There must be a problem...The Problem is prb. that MS forgot the differences between international fs versions. ;-)The Airventure Oshkosh scenery installs itself in thefs2002/ADDON SCENERY Folder.I believe it is named differently in some international versions.Therefore look if you now have a folder called thelike. If Yes, declare it in your scenery.cfg:[Area.XXX]Title=ADDON SCENERYLocal=ADDON SCENERYRemote=Active=TRUERequired=FALSELayer=XXXLucien

It amazes me that such a busy airfield can retain such good framerates. I see no hit at all with this scenery. Now if other scenery designers could start making scenery with no fps hit. Very nice and worth the 22Mb download.

I did nothing, all goes by itself with the english pro version. Just click on the exe.Since Francois and Uwe reported problem with international versions and I remember the addon scenery folder beeing a problem with other addons, I thought this might be the case again.Lucien

I didn't see mine at first either. I went into the FS2K2 directory and under ADDON SCENERY, added the Oshkosh directory, then moved the Scenery and Texture Dir in the OshKosh Dir. I then added the scenery in the Scenery Library. Everything is okay now and it looks great.

Same here Uwe, but I DO have the US version..... For some reason the installation puts the files into c:windowsADD-ON SCENERY :-eek :-eek ANd it would NOT let me change that.Go figure !!! :-rollLuciens picture looks more like what I expected to see.... so let's try again, and if all else fails, we'll just have to put the bits and pieces in manually ..... :-( :-outta Francois :-wave[table border=0 cellpadding=10 cellspacing=0][tr][td valign=bottom" align="center]"At home in the wild"[/td][td valign=bottom" align="center][link:avsim.com/alaska/alaska_051.htm|Don's Alaskan Bush Charters]"Beavers Lead the Way"[/td][td valign=bottom" align="center][link:www.avsim.com/vfr_center/mainpages/vfr_flights_main_page.htm]VFR Flight Center]"Looking Good Outside"[/td][/tr][tr][td valign=top" align="center]http://avsim.com/hangar/air/bfu/logo70.gif[/td][td valign="top" align="left" colspan=2]http://www.fssupport.com/images/moose2.gif[/td][tr][/table]________________________Francois A.

...so strange, I always thought I'm pretty good with installing MSFS files but this one just doesn't show. Mine doesn't seem to install at all, checked all folders - nothing there. I can't even de-install it through control manager.Ran the installer again and tried to remove, funny thing is when I do that I only see a difference in 5 MB when uninstalled or installed. This is so weird.Cheers,PeteP.S. using FS2002pro english versionGO GERMANY!!!!!http://home.neo.rr.com/zaehringer/pipersignature.jpgPIII600,512MB,Win98SE,DirectX8.1,Geforce32DDR(Det.22.80),SBlive(4.06.703)

I had to create the folders and move the files as well. Nothing wrong with anyones system just need to do some old school manual adding is all. Scenery files are in the secenry and textures in the texture folders on the add on folder. Kil~

I feel the same. I noticed little to no frame hit. I really hope the next flight sim moves in this direction. The Golden eagle 421 and Falcon 50 are great planes but it would great if they made an AI versions so that you could use them as eye candy and not suffer having a frame hit when you add them to Ttool.Kil~

Watch,Ferdy will claim that Bill Gates himself uploaded the file to his site. BTW,those that drove a travel bus should get a parking award. Thats some kind of tight parking!!David

MS did a great job! I had no installation problems since the addon scenery folder is enabled by default. I like the fact that the install didn't create another folder or add another scenery segment into the cfg file as I already have multiple cfg files. I love the frame rate with all these aircraft. I wonder how they did it? Great job MS. julian
