Hi OSX users
Please test the new FGx launcher 2.4.1 for FlightGear OSX 10.5/6. It comes now with OpenSceneGraph 3.1.0 and FlightGear Development snapshot (2.5.0). Other change is that you can now set a path to custom scenery with "Set Paths". As always, we need your help to improve FGx, so please use the FGx bugtracker (and NOT the flightgear bugtracker) when you find some issues or when you have feature requests for FGx: http://code.google.com/p/fgx/
Dowload FGx 2.4.1b with OSG 3.1.0 frameworks/plug-ins ( ~620 MB ! ) from the fgx download server now:
http://downloads.fgx.ch/OSX/FGx-2.4.1-osx.zip (new link!)
Before you start, please reload aircraft and airport lists in the position and aircraft tab. When you get strange airport or aircraft behaviour, close FGx and remove folder "FGX" in "/Library/Application Support" and then reload the lists again. When you want to report a bug it is probably also nice to open the debug and log window via taskbar, you will find the logs splitted to FlightGear/Terrasync/FGCom/FGx. You need probably to click on "Refresh" to get recent output.
To keep size of the application and download smaller, I decided to deploy FGx for OSX only with a very small selection of aircrafts from the official repository. When you want to use other/additional aircrafts you have the possibility to set a path to your own aircraft directory, or move it to fgx.app/Contents/Resources/fgx-fgdata/Aircrafts manually.
