Hi Henry, I'll be following this with interest.I installed some free add-on scenery at my local (NZWN), and haven't been able to use it properly since! The planes are at the gates, but the terminal building is 30 meters away!I put a message similar to yours here, but frankly the responses lost me.CheersTim

you should download an updated afcad from the file library, and delete the afcad that the scenery came with. You also need to turn off crash detection as that is a bug that nobody can fix.

I install a fair bit of freeware scenery some work / some don't. The most recent one (Malta) beautiful scenery, but the airport terminal buildings wre about 30 feet below the taxiways in a hole! - also I kept crashing with invisible object as well.Try downloading FSManager (freeware) - that's got all sorts of tools for adding aircraft and scenery etc.Can someone explain what each of the scenery folders are for in FS please, I seem to have Scenery, SceneryDB, Addon Scenery and I'm sure one other. I presume they each have their own properties ? Also can someone tell me waht the different types are as well please ? Landclass, AFCAD, Mesh etc - I get pretty confused with some of them.
