Installation

  1. Download the zip-compressed archive.
  2. Decompress (unzip) the file and drop its subfolder “windturbines” (that contains the “windturbines.tsc” file)
    into your aeroflyFS user-folder into the sub-directory “scenery\places\”, usually located at
    “C:\Users\InsertYourUserName\Documents\aerofly FS\scenery\places”.
    You may need to create the “places” folder first when this is you first aeroflyFS add-on scenery.
  3. The windturbines are now visible when you start the aeroflyFS the next time. To find them easier you can modify the movingmap icons and landmarks of the aeroflyFS:
    • Find the aeroflyFS installation folder (containing the aerofly-fs.exe) and browse to scenery\suisse\movingmaps\ and backup the file “features.txt” somewhere on your computer where you can find it later.
    • Edit the file “movingmaps\features.txt” with a text-editor like notepad++ or wordpad (default editor is not recommended) and insert all the content of “SwissTurbines_movingmaps.features.txt” from the download just before the last closing bracket “>”.
    • Repeat that process for the “scenery\suisse\osm\features.txt” file and insert the content from “SwissTurbines_osm.features.txt” into it just before the last closing bracket “>”.

    The end of the movingmaps-file should look like this:

    ...
    <[string8][summit][0]
    	<[tmvector3d][Position][781351 152946 2668.5]>
        <[string8][Name][W]>
    >
    //
    // End of Swiss Wind Turbines
    //
    >
    

    And the end of the osm-file should look like this:

    ...
    <[string8][place][0]
        <[tmvector3d][Position][781351 152946 2668.5]>
        <[string8][Name][St_Moritz Wind Turbine]>
        <[int32][Population][1]>
    >
    //
    // End of Swiss Wind Turbines
    //
    >
    

    Save the file and restart aeroflyFS.
