I copied the files to the correct folder, but how can I tell if it's working?

Hi Paragon,By going to Central America and flying. If it's working you'll see the difference in the terrain. If the dem76m_centralamerica.bgl file is found in your sceneryworldscenery folder, it's working.-------Justinhttp://www.fsgenesis.netHigh Quality Scenery for FS200x

Hi Justin,Okay I went flying in central american just now. Just to get this straight, I'm kinda new to FS, this alters how the mountains are displayed/formed, not how they look, ie the "texture"?

Hi Paragon, YOu are correct. Remember those little HO model railroad layouts of the small communities?They are made up of 4 layersMESH -- Chicken wire to form the hills and valleysLANDCLASS -- What kind of area; the woods, farms, towns, deserts, etc.SCENERY TYPE 1 -- What do the various areas look like in various seasons - hedge rows, colors of fields, etc.SCENERY TYPE 2 -- detailed stuff like buildings, trees, static vehicles, lamp posts, people, etcAll of these are presentin the default FS2002 and 2004. BUt all can be significantly improved with 3rd party add-ons like FSGenesis, FSLandClass, FScenery 2 and all the various individuals busily making interesting local scenery.Racartronit means something, but I just can't remember what

HI Paragon,Yes, terrain is the "shape" of the ground. Landclass is the patterns and colors on that shape.But, racarton's analogy is a good one, too.-------Justinhttp://www.fsgenesis.netHigh Quality Scenery for FS200x
