AI Aircraft:

ai_aircraft.zip is included with this package. Not needed if you already have my AI Aircraft Collection: jl_ai_1.zip and jl_ai_2.zip.

INSTALLATION:

You are reading this readme, so you must have already unzipped the file richmond_muni_fsx.zip to a temporary folder.

Now look for the following files.

ai_aircraft.zip
FILE_ID.DIZ
krid_1_fsx.jpg
krid_3_fsx.jpg
Readme.doc
readme.txt
richmond_muni_scenery_fsx.zip
screenshots.zip

Check your file structure in your Windows Explorer. If your FS setup is like the following, then all you need to do is unzip richmond_muni_scenery_fsx.zip to the drive where your FS is located. Unzip ai_aircraft.zip to a temporary folder and manually move the aircraft folders to the SimObjects\Airplanes folder.

:\Programs Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator X.

Using the folder feature in your zip program, the scenery files will be placed in the FS\Addon Scenery folder under Richmond Municipal Airport KRID.

Start FS and navigate to 'Scenery Library' via the 'Settings' menu. Select 'Add Area' and activate the scenery in the usual manner. You can now proceed to the airport.

If your file structure is not like that mentioned above, then unzip the zip files to a temporary folder and manually move the Richmond Municipal Airport KRID folder to wherever you keep your add-on scenery, then activate the scenery in FSX. Then if you haven't done so already, unzip the zip files containing the ai aircraft to a temporary folder and manually move all the aircraft to the FS\SimObjects\Airplanes folder. Do the same with the ai aircraft by Fernando Martinez. There are 5 ai aircraft included in this package created by yours truly.

Enjoy your flight.

ABOUT THE SCENERY:

Ok, there I was, on one of my low and slow cross country flights when I looked down from 2,500 feet and saw an interesting airport. So I circled and landed on runway 33 and the rest is history. There was no fancy process in deciding to do this airport. It was just the thought that it might be a fun and enjoyable airport to fly in and out of. I hope it holds true for you too.

A note on the animated hangars: Tune your NAV 2 radio to 112.00 to open the doors to the large hangar and 116.00 for the smaller hangar next to it. You may find that with the large hangar, you may have to get really close before the doors activate.

The actual display aircraft at Richmond looks to be a Grumman A6. I could not find an A6 for scenery design purposes, so I substituted an AI McDonnell Douglas F4 Phantom II. I used the 'Static/AI' method to display the aircraft. It will sit there for a very long time, then disappear for a short period before returning to view.

This scenery was tested in SP2 only.

Enjoy!
