Hey guys.

This little patch will change the runway 'painted markings' to reflect the new C marks. Its NOT a third runway update :)

Taxiway signs & AFCAD have also been updated to reflect the same changes.

Copy all BGL files to your flyseattle 'scenery' folder.
BMP files go the the flyseattle 'texture' folder.

easy. Enjoy.

Something wrong with this update, can't seem to download it. Corrupted or something.

It says copy all BGL files. What BGL files? This file ends with .rar and it downloads like a video file. How can I get the actual BGL files? I don't have problems downloading other files and updates from FlyTampa, except for this particular one. :?

,rar is a type of zip file, you can download a free trial of rar unzipper to unpack the contents.

You need Winrar. http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

Its just a compression program like winzip. I don't even have winzip.

Just google rar and you should find what you need.

I changed it to a zip file now. Winrar handles both.

One last question. The files I got on this zip shows TGA, not BMP, are they the same?
