ON INSTRUMENTS - FSX : STEAM EDITION
WHERE IS MY FSX:SE FOLDER?
By default you can find your FSX folder here within your Steam folder :
C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/FSX
WHERE CAN I FIND THE INCLUDED GROUND SCHOOL MANUAL AND VIDEOS?
Within your FSX:SE folder you will find the included manuals and videos, along with the charts pack here:
The deep location of the manuals and videos is a side-effect of the DLC system introduced with Steam Edition, where Steam does not allow for files to be installed outside of the Steam folder. Dovetail games have introduced a new way to add DLC to FSX, which places all add-ons within the DLC folder.
The manual can also be downloaded by CLICKING HERE
WHERE DO I FIND THE MISSIONS IN FSX:SE?
The scenarios are organised under the MISSIONS category within FSX.
IN WHAT ORDER SHOULD I FLY MISSIONS/WATCH VIDEOS?
The course is comprised of the Video Series, 8 Missions in FSX & the Ground School Manual.
The manual is laid out in the order suggested for completing the course. It will take you through the video series and in-game missions in the optimal order.
MY ENGINES ARE OFF WHEN I LOAD THE MISSION, HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Press CTRL+E to quick start your engines.
CAN I USE A DIFFERENT AIRCRAFT FOR A MISSION?
Each mission begins with an aircraft assigned to you, but you can select whichever aircraft you wish from within P3D. Although be aware that not all aircraft in your library will be appropriate for mission use.
HOW DO I SEE WHERE TO GO AND WHAT TO DO NEXT?
The mission voice-overs will explain what to do as you go along.
Using the Sound settings in FSX, set your volumes as required so you can hear your instructions clearly. Captions can also be enabled, allowing you to read along. Captions can be enabled in the General Settings menu.
By opening the Kneeboard from the Aircraft->Kneeboard option in FSX, you can see the log of messages as the mission progresses.
Directional guidance will be in the form of a location marker to fly towards and the compass at the top left corner of the screen. If these does not show, enable the Compass and Pointer option from the drop-down menu found under General Settings.
