** IMPORTANT!! ***

Please update to FTX Central v3.3.4.4 before installing. Run FTXC, wait about 20 seconds, then you will see the blue  Apply FTX Central Update   button. Please run the update before installing TE GB North - this will ensure that the entries in your scenery_packs.ini file are in the correct order which is:

THIS PRODUCT INSTALLATION HAS A DECOMPRESSION STAGE - The TrueEarth Great Britain North download size is a compact 21.8GB to save on download time, but we are using a new installation system where we decompress the ortho textures using FTX Central. This expands the total installation to around 142GB of drive space. The texture conversion process can take between 1 to 2+ hours, depending on your CPU speed and the number of cores it has. It is normal during this process for the cooling fans to speed up on your PC.


After the download stage is complete,  you will still see "Downloading", but the STATUS will change to  "Converting" and a countdown of the number of texture files remaining:


DO NOT ABORT OR INTERRUPT THE INSTALLATION DURING ANY STAGE! Wait for the tick to appear and the text "Product Installed".


Also, Nick has created a support topic for customers who have any installation issues:
