Attention: Wayne Roberts re. TMADU zip

Recommended Posts

Wayne,Your TMADU scenery POD and SCF file for the recently uploaded Audubon County Airport KADU Iowa has the same name as the POD and SCF file for Unalaska Airport-Dutch Harbor PADU (tmadu 136566 .zip and tmadu.zip).They are,however,different sizes and obviously aren't the same.What should one do to extract and install both as one set will overwrite the other? Renaming the files will prevent this but I wonder if you have had any thoughts about alternate names?Thanks for all the airports, this is the only trouble I've had.:-beerchug

Hi, what I have done with my scenery to avoid any problems like over writing is to put mine into different directories in the scenery folder. ie. one folder named Alaska, another named Iowa etc. & place the files in their respective states. It also makes duplicates of the same scenery from different authors easier to spot as there are fewer files to check. Hope this helps.Desmond

Desmond, what you have done is correct. Creating a directory for each state and placing the airport scenery in those directories will prevent a lot of problems.I have found that some airports in foreign countries have the same three letter designator as airports in the U.S. In those cases I have changed the .scf and .pod file to take that into consideration, but I will not catch all of them.Hopefully, others who may have this problem will do as you did.

Hi Wayne, First a great big thank you for all your excelent Airports & all the work you must put into them for us. Yes I have found that one of Steve's UK airports had the same file names so I have a UK folder in my scenery folder also & have never had any problems.Thanks again Desmond
