Rod has it nailed. To put it simply, the SCE reflects your .cfg file, and allows you to add, delete, etc. You would still edit insertion points via  FTX Central. It's just a handier way of adding files and changing priorities without having to open FSX every time. When you open SCE from your desktop you are looking at your .cfg file.

Some questions I would like to ask. .......................  FTX Central's Tools is used to do this.  So again does the Confg. editor allow a second insertion point?

Hi Spud,

The Scenery Config Editor does not effect what FTX Central does with insertion points.   The application of insertion points and rolling in and out of FTX sceneries happens via FTX scripting when FTX Central is cycled.

Here is another way of saying it. ............................ The scenery.cfg file is what is changed regardless of which interface is doing the changing and FSX uses the scenery.cfg file to build the Scenery Library display when you start and modifies it when you make a change.

Hope this helps.
