Heh, I've been away from FU from, err... about four years, and I was just about to ask about that too. I can see a lot about 'FU3-UKS', UK scenery areas and megatiles but I can't really find anything explaining what it is or how to get/use it. Last time I looked I the only regions were SanFran and Seattle :(

Thanks, yes, I looked at that - I can see FU3_UKS_2006.zip, the megatiles and maps but it seems that it's an update for a previous version. It's probably obvious, but where can I get the original?

Hi Jon - Happy New YearThis "No, it's the real thing!" will be good news to those wanting UKS because the thread Chris refers to, found herehttp://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...15807&mode=fullcontains this warning -"But you must have a working version of FU3-UKS to start with." I understood that to mean that the new download was of no use without the prior version. Glad to see that I mis-read it.-Seadog

Just to clarify, you need to get the original FU3_UKS installation (send me an email if you don't know how), which is approx 13-19 Gb (mainly maps). This is too large to post on Avsim. Most people set this up as a stand-alone new installation of FU3. Then you install following the download instructions given in the ZIP file, which involves deleting certain directories (to avoid clashes with the original models database and airports lists), then overwriting/copying the new version over the top. In other words, its a complete new separate "region", like Seattle and SanFran. Hope that helps.Robert.

Ah, thankyou, it makes a lot more sense now. 13GB+? That's probably too big for (almost) anywhere :D

Thanks from me as well, Rob, for clearing that up. I've always wondered how it was done. I already have more on my plate than I can adequately handle for the moment, but I've made a mental note of what you said.-Doug
