HowTo: Use external scenery.cfg files (e.g. from SceneryConfigEditor)

Recommended Posts

Many of you are using the very powerful "SceneryConfigEditor" (LINK) to manage scenery.cfg.
This how-to will show how to use them together with SIMstarter.
 
Logic: We will have different source files "Germany_Scenery.cfg", "VFRscenery.cfg" and would like to use them with the right SIMstarter profile.
Naming convention does not matter for the source file name. They must end with ".cfg".
 
STEP 1: Open SIMstarter > Profile configuration > ScenerySet > Select "Use external scenery.cfg"

STEP 2: Choose a source file. Filename not needed to be named "scenery.cfg"

STEP 3: This profile is using this source file now and copy it to %ProgramData%\Microsoft\FSX\scenery.cfg (in case of other plattforms another path will be used)

This logic works in "Jumpstart" as well. ;O)
