None of the installed scenery mods appear in FSX and P3D

There're thousands of add-ons on the Web for the classic FSX and Prepar3D v1 to v3. Take off from anywhere in the world, flying some of the world’s most iconic aircraft to any one of 24,000 destinations.

None of the installed scenery mods appear in FSX and P3D

Unread post by StargateMax »

It's surprising that no one else has talked about this yet.

I have installed several scenery add-ons I downloaded from this site, supposedly for one or both FSX and Prepar3D. None of the sceneries show up in the game(s) whatsoever. The airplane add-ons work fine, but I'm not so interested in those.

I also downloaded this Hawaii scenery, almost 7 Gb, and Kauai too. All I see in game is default crappy landscape just like before.

What could be the problem?

1) Hello (sorry)
2) Here I have to say: Read 4 below.
4) Ok, I'm gone, no worries with me, seems like we both consider each other rude.
5) Bye.

I think I know the Hawai'i one you speak of. While it may install you MAY have to add it to the game, manually. Not quite sure WHY this is, but sometimes that's the case.

If you're unsure of how to do that lemme know and I can help ya with that :)

Let's do it like this...

First ,you have to tell me some things...
Did you install it correctly?
Did you activate the scenery in your FSX?
Which scenery packs are you trying to install?

I had a lot of scenery downloaded from here,and all of it's working,if you do it right.

Let's start fresh, feels much better that way. :) Sorry about above.

I installed that big Hawaii photoreal vol 1-2-3 pack, Kauai, Mt. Everest, Fiji, Balearic islands v2.
The installers said that they will be automatically installed and I assumed that they will show up in the Scenery Library.
I saw nothing new in the Scenery Library (both games).

Then I looked into the Addon Scenery folder (both games), and there was nothing I had installed. I also thought that they got installed separately, but I was unable to locate them in order to add them manually.

Update:
While writing this reply here I suddenly got a light bulb moment. I looked into the Scenery (not "Addon") folder and scrolled far down, and found them in there! And adding them to the Scenery Library from there does work.

I think it got solved. Thank you for tolerating my attitude, I was really upset after 2 days of messing with it.

I hope this post helps anyone else who might encounter the same problem I did.
Thank you all!

I had a same thing happening.Don't know why,but the installers are doing some things badly wrong. One proper update is really needed.

Nice to see that it's working. So now you got it for the next time when something is not working.,tell us as much as possible ,that will help us all to solve the problem.
