Copy all of the files in the "Texture" folder (but not the "Texture" folder, itself) to the main FSX "Texture" folder. There is no need to overwrite any files that are found to already exist within the FSX "Texture" folder. Complete the installation as shown below.


All Traffic X users should navigate to the following folder:

...\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\JustFlight\TrafficX\AirportFacilities\Scenery

In the above folder, rename AF2_KNIP.bgl to AF2_KNIPbgl.bak

There are two methods to complete the installation for Traffic X users. One method is to use the procedure shown below for "NON-TRAFFIC X USERS," thereby adding "KNIP Enhanced" to the FSX Scenery Library. The other method is this:

Within the "KNIP Enhanced" folder is a "Scenery" subfolder. Copy all files within this "Scenery" subfolder (but not the "Scenery" subfolder, itself), and paste the files into:

...\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\JustFlight\TrafficX\AirportFacilities\Scenery


1. Copy the "KNIP Enhanced" folder (including the folder, itself) to the FSX "Addon Scenery" folder.

2. In FSX, go to "Settings," and under "Other settings," click the "Scenery Library" button.

3. On the "Settings - Scenery Library" window, click the "Add Area" button.

4. Navigate to the "Addon Scenery" folder, and then double-click on the folder to open it.

5. Click once on "KNIP Enhanced," and click the "OK" button.

6. Clicking the "OK" button above has brought you back to the "Settings - Scenery Library" window. Under "Available scenery areas," "KNIP Enhanced" will appear at the top of the list. Be sure "Enabled" is checked, then click the "OK" button.
