Hi Ben,Just create a /Switzerland folder inside the CDROM folder of your FU3 game.Check the 3. line in the region.cfg file of Switzerland to see the path definition.You may change the location as you want.The version you have downloaded is the old one of 2001. We learn a lot since this time :-) but the new version is still under construction. I do no longer use .cpd files and so my new installation has no cdrom folder and all the files are .bin down to the level 0.Quality is much better that way but use much more disk space.Check also the folder named /gerpile and rename it to /engpile if you own a English or us version of fu3. gerpile works for the German version only.You must move the Seattle region folder outside of FU3 to use Switzerland region to avoid airport conflicts because FU3 is just for 1 longitude zone and is mixing all airports having near same latitude N position and this is the case with the Seattle region.Another more secure way is to copy the full game to a new location without the folders for Sanfran and Seattle of /region and /cdrom so you have a Switzerland only fu3 version without conflicts with outer airports or the just delete the airport of this game copy (not your original copy !)Check for the new elevation model (geos) for Switzerland this is much better than the first version.here from a flight over the lake of Zurich, on the top real in a JU-52 and bottom in Ansgar's DC3 at about the same location. http://www.agtim.ch/fu3/images/tozurich.jpg :-wave agtim
