No, that is not the actual link from FGMEMBERS. That is the official FlightGear download link which is what you should use.

But you can also just get it directly from fgaddon from the launcher.

I know, you misunderstood me.

Here is what's strange though, if I down load from http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/flightgear/f ... aft-trunk/ and put this model in my custom folder,
now when I put this model in /user/.fgfs/Aircraft/org.flightgear.fgaddon/Aircraft it gets reverted to an older version, strange!!!!
What would you suggest I do here Josh?

Put it in a custom scenery folder, and add it on the add-ons tab of the launcher under additional aircraft folders.

don't put things in the FG maintained directories is the first bit of assistance... FG will maintain those files and remove those that do not match what is available on the servers... this is why you have the ability to have custom scenery and craft...

as for the one getting reverted, that depends on your FG version... FG will try to maintain what you have access to based on what is available for your FG version... if you have 2018.3.1 and you put in a craft that only properly works with FG 2019.1.1 and newer, then it will be reverted... it should be because the newer version of the craft isn't in the 2018.3.1 repo... this stops erroneous issue reports of craft not working because they are using newer capabilities in FG than in the old FG version the user has installed...

you get the same if you try to run older craft, too... many of them won't work because the procedures have changed or been removed in newer FG versions...

the key takeaway here is to use the craft that are valid for your FG...

That is exactly the way I do it..

Yes, but you put it in a folder Flightgear controls - where it puts aircraft that are in your hangar -- ie that you download in the launcher. Put it elsewhere as wkitty said.

You can also add a new hangar in the launcher with the catalog http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/flightgear/ftp/Aircraft-trunk/catalog.xml.
You will than have the official 'stable-2018' hangar and the official 'trunk' hangar (where updates will be pushed from developers).
If a aircraft from the 'trunk' hangar doesn't work well, then it may be that the aircraft need a newer version. In this case, you can install the same (but older) aircraft from the 'stable-2018' hangar.

Hint: to see where a aircraft coming from, hold 'shift' and click on the aircraft. You will see the URL of the hangar.

Well -- seems the coo-coo can't stop trying to compensate for something...

He now is appearing as EDDFjo2 and basically causing shit for people - as neglecting someone for not saying please - however I have verified that this was the fake jomo, and not the real one.

Hence - please ignore anyone claiming to be jomo who is actually not. Maybe check for the mumble - and also if he is there on days that he should not - like today - Monday!

We also KNOW he is on the FG discord.

Kind Regards,
Josh

I added this as you suggested but it failed, unless it just takes a long time?

Pls watch out for a new trick of those little idiots - only being able to cheat and lie!

They now start to place ATC-comments into the Flight-Strips and tell that was from jomo! But those idiotic comments are in the line "public comments" , being accessible from every ATC..

My comments are written into the "privat comments" - only readable when I ATC! .

I do not feel sorry for those idiots - but for you - that become cheated in all ways all times!!!

Ugh... Yeah, EDDF was a mess today. I don't know if I was interacting with the real jomo or not, but I do hope I get to see my takeoff next Saturday. Anyway, I've found the active dispatchers around this triangle friendly and convenient in the past well before I bothered to join the forums. That generally makes up for the occasional troll in my book.

Pls use mumble:
* it helps to differentiate by voice between me and those idiotic trolls! They usually are cowards and afraid of being recognized!
* it supports you a lot when trying to type and fly the same time
* and it helps me a lot if it becomes crowded and I have to type long text's
--> Try to guide 5 targets same time and explain them what to do and how -- and watch if anyone of those others will be mad because he has to wait for his answers very long.
--> And notice: Non-Mumble users will not notice how crowded (on MP + mumble!) it may be right then!
AND anyhow: It is much more modern e.g. closer to reality (and ATC has a lot more time for you personally!)

@jomo:

Ah, yes. I saw that on your website when I glanced at it. I'm glad you bothered to make that, because it should have all the information I need to get that set up sometime soon. Sounds like it's convenient too.

Even if you do not agree with the way Jomo behaves, you should not bother a planned and scheduled ATC service like a complete idiot. EDDF is Jomos Airport. You just do not fly to EDDF anymore and good, if you dont like his "service".
But what this guy or guys are doing is just ridiculous and testifies that the guy has no real life. Poor guy!
