    Hello "Lucky".


    Like you I have struggled with this but have found my own method which, whilst not technically pure, works without flaws. So here is my method (I have the Steam edition of AFS2 installed on my E drive).


    1. Under the folder: E:\Steam\steamapps\common\Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator AddOns I have created the folder "Scenery" so it reads thus: E:\Steam\steamapps\common\Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator AddOns\Scenery

    2. In the Scenery folder I have created country names (ie England)

    3. In each country folder I have created 2 further folders (ie Images and Places)

    4. In the Places folder I have created a folder called Cultivation


    So far so good, and I hope you're still with me! Now to get scenery into the correct places I do this:


    5. Download the scenery package you want (Izojub's scenery is a good place to start as it has everything).

    6. Unzip (I use 7-Zip as I use Windows) as follows:

    6a. Place all files from "Images" into the Images folder as in [ 3 ] above

    6b. Place all files from "Places" into the Places folder in 3 above


    ** NOTE ** you will have to drill down into the ZIP file to get to the various map tiles and this will be obvious when you do: for example, the images may well be 3 layers down. However I just copy all files and if it asks to over-write, I just do. After all, cultivation is merely a representation, not the exact buildings, so I'm not too bothered with actual fidelity.


    7. Make sure "Building Textures" from the Places folder has the following structure, for example:


    E:\Steam\steamapps\common\Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator\AddOns\Scenery\England\Places\Cultivation.


    That is, within Places there should be 1 folder that is called "Building Textures" - put the files from the "Building Textures" ZIP in here. The other files can just go into the Places folder - I just over-write when asked - as per my ** NOTE ** above.


    As to airports from FSCloudPort they are normally provided in zipped download form ready-made in a folder structure (eg EGGP Liverpool). I just copy the whole folder straight into the Places folder as in [ 3 ] above and AFS2 finds them OK.


    As I say, it may not be the "purists" method, but it works for me and I hope it helps you too. Feel free to come back to me for any clarifications.


    Finally - enjoy!

    Well I don't want to argue about it but there were several messages between us on the original Ireland series before the recent update to encompass all of Ireland.


    Let's leave it at that rather than generate ill-feeling.


    And for the avoidance of doubt, I DO thank all of you for going to the trouble of creating scenery.

    "FIRSTLY it would of been a kind and thoughtful gesture to actually THANK those persons who work tirelessly behind the scenes to offer YOU for FREE scenery and or cultivation for FS 2."


    That statement was uncalled for.


    In fact I have had several messages and correspondence with the Ireland author where I did, indeed, thank him profusely.


    Get your facts straight and apologise to me please.

    I have to agree with HiFlyer above. I'm an experienced Xplane person but am totally confused with the AFS2 folder parameters.


    For example, the Martinique product on here installs flawlessly and I can see everything as intended. The ORBX Switzerland is the same.


    However the other ones such as Ireland and the Canary Islands leave me with big green blobs (ie the default scenery by the look of it), but I do see houses and other buildings. I've tried installing in all sorts of different places and ways but to no avail.


    I think a couple of screenshots of what the scenery is supposed to look like would help.
