Ray Smith AFCAD appreciation

Recommended Posts

I just went through a big format/reinstall a few weeks ago (added SSDs) and I just now got around to installing AFCADs for all the major airports. I just wanted to point out and commend the amount of time and work Ray Smith has put into providing good AFCADs for free here. I installed well over 150 of his files that cover a ton of the world's major airports. That is a heck of a lot of work!

I never knew they existed... I've just downloaded most of the USA airports. Thanks Ray!

 

Is there a simple way to extract and install all of them?

 

If there isn't can I extract each to a folder then drag it to the Addon Scenery folder and activate them all?

 

Bleh nm... some files needed to go to addon scenery/scenery while others needed global/scenery

 

Took me about 10 minutes to put 50 folders in place hehe

Anyone tried the Sydney YSSY one on top of ORBX?

 

Would it be compatible?

I actually asked John Venema at Orbx about that the other day - no, the Orbx FTX regions and airports already contain custom AFCAD (they call them APX) files.
