How to install SSP files?

Postby Walter » Fri 13 Feb 2004 - 16:45

Hi all,

This week I have downloaded Alex Lindeijer's Lofoten Scenery for Sail Simulator. The file is an Stentec Scenery Package (SSP) and the icon looks like a cardboard box.
I understand that you need the Scenery Manager, okay I got that, but then what?
How do I unpack the SSP-file so that it becomes a Sail Sim Scenery (SSS) file?

If any of you know a few pointers I am all ears.

Thanks in advance,
Walter

Not sure how the Download version works but I have the retail version and there is an update to 4240.

After Installing with Scenery Manager.Alt/Environment/Sceneries then scroll to the route. Also it puts these into Program Files/Common/Stentec Shared Folder, but they also seem to go into Documents/Stentec sometimes.

You can install a route direct from the Scenery Builder... Open Route - File then Register I think. You can also rename a route with a fresh reference number with Scenery Builder to work on and install with fresh reference number and keep the original intact.

When you have the route running game/save situation and give it a name puts route into the starting page of routes.

Perhaps Download version is different?
