I'm in the Tongass Fjords control panel.The "Static boats at Sitka and Petersburg marina" are not active.The checkbox is unchecked.When I tic it.What happens to the .BGLs.Are they moved from the Cache area into the Tongass_Fjords_Higher_Priority\scenery folder?.

For the other one,the TF_FSX_SPBs_and_marinas_ShoemakerBay_boats.BGL.I'll copy it and move it to the scenery folder Rod mentioned.I hope this is correct??.

Gray Rider,

Don't move any thing...just check it....it probably moves all three files.

I did tic the Static boats at Sitka and Petersburg marina in the Tongass X Control Panel.

I started my sim.It did not do a data build,as I though it would,since I activated something in the TF control Panel.

I'll report back of the results in a few moments.I'm heading to TF07 to have a look.

I just went to TF07.

Still no show of static boats
Here is a screenshot of what I guess is the Tongass X Control Panel.The upper far left box was unchecked.I ticked the box and hit the apply settings and exit.
I have this panel short cutted to the desk top,for use etc.

The three TF_FSX_SPBs_and_marinas_Petersburg_boats.BGL
TF_FSX_SPBs_and_marinas_ShoemakerBay_boats.BGL
TF_FSX_SPBs_and_marinas_Sitka_boats.BGL  files are now showing in the  scenery folder as seen in the screenshot below,that Rod had mentioned.

Still no static boats are showing up at TF07.

Hi GrayRider,

Now that you have the box ticked and the extra boat files are all in the scenery folder you need to go into your scenery library delete the Tongass_Fjords_Higher_Priority scenery area.  Then add the Tongass_Fjords_Higher_Priority scenery area back in by browsing to the FSAddon folder.   FSX will put the area on the top of your list.  Just move it back down to just above the low priority area which you left in the scenery library and it should work.
