Microsoft Flight Simulator X\AddOn Scenery\scenery
They can also be stored in a custom directory within the main Flight Simulator folder, such as the directory below:
Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Custom\scenery
Custom BGL files can be created and compiled using third-party programs. Once a custom BGL files is placed in the appropriate directory, it will be available in the game.
