How to backup Default Global Scenery scenery tiles ?

Recommended Posts

Whenever I download new tiles from the X-Plane servers, using the installer / updater, I do it from a PC with a better connection to the internet than the one I have at home.

 

But what folders should I bring home afterwards and drop on my X-plane 10 install there in order to get the Global Scenery updated with this new tiles ?

 

Thanks for any hints!

Hi Jose,

 

its very simple with X-Plane, as there is only one folder where all the tiles of the Global Scenery reside. Namely, in the "Global Scenery" folder :smile: (maybe not very surprising).

The "original" Global Scenery is put here:

  • /data2/X-Plane_10/Global Scenery/X-Plane 10 Global Scenery

BUT ... Lamianr wants to make your life even easier, and they have another - parallel - sub folder which contains the newer updates (and that is the one which you want to bring home!):

  • /data2/X-Plane_10/Global Scenery/Recuts 1030/
