Which file is the one I want?????

Never having gotten this to work I thought I would try again. I now find I can download aircraft because they are listed with the name. So I did that. Then I want specific airports but after going in circles, I found there are a bunch or letters and numbers in a list and no way to tell what is where. Then I started hitting dead links trying to locate the location map where you click little squares. So I figured they want me to buy it all from them so I click the link but it seems there is some problem requiring some kind of modification...but thanks for using NIQ something or other. I see nothing about this that means it is supported or even if the owners want people to use it. If I am wrong convince me.

You can search for the Airport by name, no need to know the ICAO code (the numbers and letters you see in the airports list)

Seems you look at the old download site. First of all, you don't need to buy anything.
All you want is to go in the launcher to Settings and turn "Download scenery automatically" on.
Then start and it will download the required scenery for you.
