Hmm, yeah if you clicked to download the file from the email you received then the file should be in that folder you set it to download which is apparently not the windows download folder. 

When you run the installer it will prompt you for the install location.  If you bought the game from Feelthere directly and installed it to the default directory then you should not need to change anything and can complete the instillation.  If you bought from Steam or changed the directory the game is in then you will need to change everything except the final folder or two so that the installer is looking for your specific game. 

IE: Default for example could be to: "c:\program files\Tower3D Pro\

The installer could be looking for the Tower3D Pro\Packages folder.  So if you installed the game elsewhere you just need to remap it to the Tower folder:

N:\Steam\Steamapps\common\Tower3D Pro\

The airport needs to be installed to this folder depending on the version: 

AIRFIELDS DLC´S FOR TOWER3DPRO

ProgramFiles(x86)\FeelThere\Tower!3DPro\Extensions\Airfields

 

AIRFIELDS DLC´S FOR TOWER3DPRO STEAM

c:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Tower 3D Pro\Extensions\Airfields

Is it not about time you had a better installation package? This forum continues to be littered with people having installation issues yet nothing is done about it. What is it now? More than 4 years of continuous problems and nothing gets better. Very disappointing.

Not all of the DLC is created by the game dev's to be fair.  And the game itself is out of support so not much sense in changing things for it at this point.  The new version in development though..... ... .. dot dot dot 🙂

I made a video about installing DLC and walked through the process and still get a number of questions on how to go through it so I am not absolving the issues just that at this point, and even a year + ago it didn't make a lot of sense to go redo it all when they are working on the new version.  Depending on how simple it would be for them to have it scan for your game and map out the path automatically etc.  But the other DLC creators would need to follow suit.

#1 - We're only talking two developers here - FeelThere and Nyerges Design. So, this wouldn't have taken much coordination and effort.

#2 - Installation was a problem on day 1. This easily could have been addressed at any time. Especially since they chose to continue to produce DLC's. "Working" on the new version is a lame excuse.

#3 - At least Nyerges Design recognized this was an issue and improved their installation program, although it could still use tweaking.

#4 - Intelligent installers, error handling, etc. were all around way before T!3DP was released. Simple basic software standards which FeelThere chose not to include. Hopefully they will take all things to the next level in their ventures - P3D, MSFS, and the next version of Tower.
