Downloaded landscape not showing in game

Post by Wingtip59 » Wed Jun 09, 2021 1:48 am

I have downloaded 6 landscapes for c2 and 5 of them work just fine. 1 landscape just doesn't even show up in the drop down list. The landscape is westgermany3HD. According to the readme "This file contains information about the West Germany 3 Landscape for Condor V2." So I know its the correct file version and it is in the correct folder just like the other 5 landscapes that do work.

Is this landscape broken?? Why wont it show in my drop down box?

Probably the file structure of the folder is not correct. Check that it is the same as the other landscapes. Easiest way to install landscapes is to use the excellent Condor Updater

Thank you for the link, i'm trying to jump through all these hoops to make this scenery work... i've downloaded the program you suggested but its now made me go register at some other website... after trying 4 times to get a cn number that wasn't already taken i got registered... now its saying to get key but all it does is take me back to the registration page....

if i do ever find this key then i'm probably going to have to re download this massive file... so it looks like im not going to be testing it tonight... I've installed 7 different landscapes that all work but the 8th one, westgermany3 just refuses to work all because someone couldn't zip their files up correctly.

Your folder "WestGermany3HD" is wrong. The correct folder is "WestGermany3". Inside this folder you have to see f.x. the folder "Airports". I guess that inside your folder "WestGermany3HD" ist the folder "WestGermany3", so move these folder "WestGermany3" into the folder "Landscapes" and it will work.

"I've installed 7 different landscapes that all work but the 8th one, westgermany3 just refuses to work all because someone couldn't zip their files up correctly."

Remember, you get these great landscape for nothing, and there are 3 different versions, SD, HD and UHD, so that may be the reason for the different structure. They didn't zipped it not correctly, you unzipped it not correctly. Unzip it and set the right folder on the right place, that's all you have to do ;-)

if it was so, many people would have complained since march 2020 (it has been downloaded 1123 times) and CondorUpdater wouldn't work as it uses the same files...

6266 is right, the landscape name is indeed WestGermany3 and you clearly didn't follow the unzipping procedure: https://www.condor.club/generic/240/?page=0240
to make it short, the .7z files must be unzipped to the Condor2\Landscapes folder.

The base package is the same for all 3 resolutions : WestGermany3_main101.7z, the only difference being the textures resolution.

If you download the landscape from f.x. https://skylinescondor.com/landscapes, you only get one zip-file, there I have seen this structure, f.x. a zip file, containing the folder WestGermany3HD, containing the folder WestGermany3. If you use that method to get landscapes, you have to know, what to do to make it run. If not use Condor Updater, but it should be not that difficult to move the right folder on the right place

This is ridiculous....I did do that just like the other landscapes that work just fine. it should take TWO clicks to install this landscape.... Like all the others, you should be able to right click, then left click "extract here" (to your landscape folder) and thats it.
. I guess that inside your folder "WestGermany3HD" ist the folder "WestGermany3", so move these folder "WestGermany3" into the folder "Landscapes" and it will work.
My WestGermany3HD folder DOES NOT have another folder in it called WestGermany3 as you can see below... Why people continue saying its my fault is beyond me.... i unzipped it exactly how ive done ALL the others. Again it should be a simple two click process that literally takes 5 seconds. Im just going to rename this main folder based on 6266 post and i expect it will work. I will let you know shortly if it worked by just renaming it.

And BAM, it works.... by renaming the main folder. Thats a file naming error, not a unzipping error. Thank you 6266 for pointing out the file name error.

I was assuming that you downloaded the files from the "official" Condor-Club repository where they are correctly zipped (because you didn't mention where you got them from) :roll:

If you downloaded your files from a different place, you should contact them directly.

Whatever the source of the error was, good that it's running now. Enjoy WestGermany now ;-)
