Once you have the file download unzip it and move the folder to your "x-plane 11/Custom Scenery/" folder.
That is it! If you had xplane running when you installed it you'll have to restart it for it to load. If you are not able to get it to load in the sim once you have it installed then check the section below for troubleshooting tips.
X-plane won't load the scenery properly?
There are a variety of things which can cause you to not be able to load this scenery properly.
Check that you unzipped the folder before you moved it to your custom scenery folder. If it is still a .zip file then you need to unzip it or it won't work.
The most likely cause is having missing or out of date libraries. Check the 'Required Libraries' list above to make sure you have everything. Check that if you downloaded any of these libraries a long time ago they you have a new enough version for it to satisfy the requirements, if not then click whichever library you need to update and it will bring you to the page to get the newest version. If you want a easy way to see what library is your issue then find your log.txt in the x-plane 11 folder and scroll down until you see a message with a big box around it and that will tell you where it found the error.
If you rename your libraries to organize your custom scenery folder check your log.txt and make sure it is not having trouble finding your library. This scenery was designed to not care what you name your folder but it is possible if a library changes that it will mess with the file path and cause issues. If this is the case you can fix it by changing the name back or editing the file(s) with problems to include the new file name (note that this may cause issues with other sceneries and we wouldn't recommend doing it).
If the tips above did not help then try reading your log.txt and see if you can spot any errors related to the scenery it is throwing. Check the forum to see if anyone else is having your issue, you are probably not alone. If you really cannot figure it out and don't want to spend the rest of your Saturday troubleshooting (we've all done it and know how much it sucks) just send me a PM with your log.txt and we can work through it so you can get back to flying.
Having performance issues or using an older computer?
This scenery is designed for everyone and as such we have made an effort to optimize it for lower end systems without sacrificing aesthetics or functionality. Even though it is designed to run on lower end machines you might still encounter lag if you have older components or are using other mods which impact frame rates. There are a few improvements you can do to your scenery to further improve performance and tweak it to run the best for your system. See this forum post.
What does the future of this scenery look like?
This airport will be undergoing updates as they are needed. Bug fixes will come as they are reported (so report any bugs you find!). Don't worry if you don't hear anything, there is still development going on at ZDP, just check the discord to get the latest on what is going on behind the scenes.
