There are certain aircrafts we may not want to display in FSX at all. Besides uninstalling them from the system, we can go to the SimObjects folder and
Rename the “panel” folder to “panel-0” to disable all aircrafts under the same group; or
Open aircraft.cfg and change the “panel=” of specific aircrafts to “panel=0” to hide them from showing up.
The Add Area function under Scenery Library somehow fails to install new sceneries under Windows 7. The simple solution is to edit the Scenery.CFG file manually in order to place new addons to the Scenery Library as described below:
1. Locate Scenery.CFG file from C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX\
2. Make a backup of the Scenery.CFG file before making any changes.
3. Open the file with Notepad and go to the end of it.
4. Copy the last scenery section and Paste to the end.
5. Add 1 to the number of both Area and Layer.
6. Change Title as required
