No packages folder in my flight3 folder

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I recently got back into FUIII and have been enjoying many of the enhancements available here, especially the DC-3. That is a very nice piece of work! My question is regarding adding scenery add-ons. I number of them ask me to install to my "packages" folder under my "flight 3" folder, but I do not have one. I just did a fresh installation when I got back into FUIII and also added in my old FUII SF scenery and installed the patch. Can I just create the folder, or do you think there may be a problem with my installation?

IIRC, just create the folder. It is not created by default by the install process.Ian

Adding to Ian's reply, create a PACKAGES folder in your FLIGHT3 folder.Chris Low,ENGLAND.

Hi FletchWatson.This is how, to create a Packages Folder.Right clik on the desk-top, and choos New Folder.Now right clik on your New Folder and choos Rename, and tipePackagesNow drag and drop your new Packages folder into your {Flight3 Folder}.All the Fled seenary Packages you get from the net, go in your Packages folder.But at the moment, your Packages folder is empty, so Fled might not work yet.Fled can not open a Package, if you dont have a package to open.So Lets make a Package.Clik on the yelow and red Fled.exeCoos Seattl.When you are at the black screen of Fled,Clik on File, and choos New Package....tipe Rob Now wate a minit or too, Fled sumtims takes time to open.You should now see the top doun window. The Zor window is bihined it.I dont use the Zor window, I dont think anyone dus.The top down window is looking doun on SeaTac Intl airport.Clik on Objects, and choos Place Models...Clik on Place, and then Clik on the ground.Exit FledSave changes? Yes.Start up FU3, and go to SeaTac Intl in Settl and see the extra runway you,v just put there.But dont wury, you can eesily get rid of it by going back into Fled & openingyour Rob Package, Highlit the runway and press Delete.Or if you look in your Packages Folder, you will fined a Folder named Rob.This is your Package. You can just Delete it.glidernut
