In X-Plane 8 the global scenery was installed in the “default scenery” folder, which normally contains most of the built-in artwork to make X-Plane (and the global scenery) work.
In the X-Plane 9 beta it is installed in the custom scenery folder. But the sim recognizes it by name and makes sure custom scenery is higher priority than global scenery. This is imperfect but works. In the future we may do something different. Survival tips:
- The log file tells the priority of all scenery packages.
- Don’t rename or move the global scenery – leave it where it was installed.
- Custom scenery will always trump global scenery.
