INSTALLING THE SCENERY
Installing this scenery involves four easy steps:
1. Unzip GlBay_AR7.zip and run GlBay_AR7.exe. Make sure that the installer uses
your main FS9 folder.
2. Start FS2004, open the Settings > Scenery Library menu and look for the
“Alsek River Rudy's Strip” entry. Make sure that “Alsek River Rudy's Strip" is
above (lower priority number) the "Alaska Glacier Bay landscape" and "Alaska
Glacier Bay scenery" entries. Shut down FS2004 and start again.
NB The installer will place a program group called “Alsek River Dry Bay Area
Rudy's Strip FS2004” in your Start menu.
3. INSTALLING THE OBJECT LIBRARIES
The scenery has been made with conventional macro's (api's) and Flight1 Instant
Scenery (IS). IS makes extensive use of object libraries. Some of the object
libraries are provided with the Glacier Bay v2 and are already installed on your
system. However in the Alsek River Rudy's Strip” scenery some objects are from
other object libraries. All these object libraries provide the objects you'll
see in this scenery. The scenery will not display unless you have all these
object libraries installed on your system.
NB: Often object libraries are "shared" by several scenery add-on’s made by
other authors. YOU DON’T NEED TO REINSTALL AN OBJECT LIBRARY THAT YOU ALREADY
HAVE ON YOUR SYSTEM, AND DOING SO MAY CAUSE PROBLEMS.
The first library you should download and install, if you have not done so
before, is provided by Abacus, the makers of EZ-Scenery. This library is self
installing. Download it here: http://www.abacuspub.com/pub/AbacusEZLibraries.exe
Now secondly download and install, if you have not done so before, any of the
following object libraries:

ez-extra-objects-1.zip Steve Ziegler, Lars Hoyer

woody_s_ez_rocks_boulders_snowdrifts.zip Glen Fout
SIRP_EZ_Effects.zip Ed Truthan
(Hyperlinks are provided AR7_Readme.pdf)
Thirdly there’s a folder called “Extra” (by default C:Program FilesMicrosoft
GamesFlight Simulator 9Addon SceneryAlsek River Rudy's StripExtra) which
contains one small custom object library made by Kobbe Farwick. Install this the
same way as the object libraries above.
NB: Follow the installation instructions that come with the object libraries.
However more convenient would be to create a folder called “Object Library” in
your “Addon Scenery” folder and install in it all your object libraries. After
that add the “Object Library” folder to your scenery library like any other
addon scenery. Make sure to give it a low priority e.g. next after “Addon
Scenery” in the scenery library.
4. Read the paragraph on Summer and winter scenery below and set your
You're now ready to enjoy Rudy’s Strip. Choose from one of the preconfigured
flights (Select A Flight > Glacier Bay...) or create a flight from “Alsek River
Rudy's Strip” and/or AR7.
SUMMER AND WINTER SCENERY
The installer will add two extra entries in your Start menu. One shortcut to
“Addon sceneryAlsek River Rudy's StripSeasonsinstall - summerscenery.bat” and
one shortcut which points to “Addon sceneryAlsek River Rudy's
StripSeasonsinstall - winterscenery.bat”
These little batch programs will install summer scenery and remove winter
scenery and vice versa. When should you run the batch programs? A rule of thumb
could be that whenever you (de)install the ‘frozen lake’ textures of Glacier Bay
v2, also remember to run the appropriate batch program. Make sure that you
restart FS2004 after each run of a batch program.
SOUNDS (FS ENHANCER)
Custom sounds are provided for owners of Lago’s FS Enhancer. All necessary files
are installed in the appropriate folders (ie by default C:Program
FilesMicrosoft GamesFlight SimulatorLAGOCommonSounds. If you don’t have FS
Enhancer installed just delete these folders and the files contained in it.
In the above mentioned “Extra” folder you’ll also find a file named “AR7 -
Approaching Alsek River Rudy's Strip.frc”. This file is a flight recorded with
FS Recorder and corresponds to the preconfigured flight “AR7 - Approaching Alsek
River Rudy's Strip” in which you’ll find yourself in one of the default Cessna’s
172 approaching the short cross strip 15-33 with a stiff 16 knot SE crosswind.
In order to properly play the file, choose the flight “AR7 - Approaching Alsek
River Rudy's Strip” and when the sim has loaded, load the .frc file with FS
You can play the .frc file back similar to the FS instant replay and flight
video recorder, but with a lot more features. FS Recorder does NOT record video
files (like .avi), it records data like aircraft position, speed, etc., so the
recordings can only be played inside FS. This allows watching your (or in this
case mine) actions in flight from different views. More info on FS
Rudy’s Strip add-on scenery has been specially created for Glacier Bay v2 by
Holger Sandmann & Team. I’ve tested it with and without the FSGENESIS 38M
TERRAIN mesh and found no anomalies.
