Installation Notes and Information for MaskRider Scenery
I. PACTEX & STOCK
MaskRider add-on airfields
look best with and are built to fit the details of Otis's PacTex
Version1 ground textures with the exception that the stock vriversu.bmp
and vroadssu.bmp are retained. If interested:
- Get PacTex at FlightSim.com. Once logged in, go to main menu >
File Library > Advanced Search > "Limit searches only
to files that match..." and type pactex*.zip
in "File Name" box and hit the "Start Search"
button. There are two version of PacTex. Version1 consists of
zips Pactex1 thru Pactex5. Version2 consists of zips Pactex2a
thru Pactex2e. The first 3 folders of each version contain the
basic ground and water texture swaps. The last two folders contain
specialty textures for special looks. The Readmes are pretty
- STOCK CFS2 Rivers & Roads textures.
II. LWM SCENERY:
- LWM scenery included in many
of these collections, require copying contents of scenedb/world/texture
folder to main CFS2 texture folder. Its a one time deal. It won't
hurt a thing.
NOTE: If you are going to install PacTex (highly recommended)
wait until you have done so before copying these files.

- For a PTO-Specific Install
of Rhumbas mesh and water masks, Dave "dvslats"
Slaski did an edited version of Rami's install guide: rami_edited_pto.zip.

instructions relevant to the PTO remain.
