Brief introduction: The main part of the scenery is the standard scenery *.bgl file. This file contains the code of objects and positions. Scenery is also using texture files. These give color and shape to the area or objects. Texture files are always exactly 65536 bytes large (64kB) but have different extensions (*.r8 *.oav *.pat and more) The scenery (*.bgl) need to be copied to a scenery directory. Texture files need to be copied to a texture directory. You can best make new folders for every scenery area you install. If you want to learn more about scenery management, layers, folders, etc. you can best download this useful text file made by Ray Proudfoot (9kB zipped). If you want to know more about the internal structure of scenery files you can download the file fs5strc2.zip (180kB) made by Mauricio Gavioli and others. If you want to view textures you can drag and drop these files to this small utility: r8paint (36kB zipped). The files below are all FREE non-commercial so called third party scenery's. Many of these are as good as, or even better as, commercial scenery. If you want more information about commercial scenery you can go to my 'commercial' page.
