I can't download the A320neo

Installing FlightGear, scenery, aircraft etc. on Mac.

I can't download the A320neo

Postby furrballbagonia » Tue Mar 12, 2019 6:14 am

I run a 12'' macbook OSX Mojave
(If u need anymore info plz tell me)
Ok so I download the Zip file, expand it. Rename the folder aircraft to the correct name. Go to flightgear, open contents/resources/data/aircraft (folders.) I take my A320neo file/folder and try to drag it into the flightgear Aircraft folder but I cant. It has a little grey circle with a line in the middle.
Plz help, I know this is a great plane I just can't install it into my sim!
Many thanks

If you can't move something into a Folder, it likely means the folder is write-protected for the system permissions you have with the account you're logging in.

The correct solution is to use another folder where you have permissions and tell FG about it (the launcher allows to specify multiple aircraft and scenery directories), the somewhat more hacky solution is to give yourself write permissions to the default aircraft folder via admin authority.

I don't know - I've never owned a Mac. Presumably it has some sort of file manager which allows you to create folders.

you don't change permissions... you use another folder as directed and point FG to that folder as an additional folder to look in for craft or scenery... the reason you don't want to write your custom craft to the default folders is because it may be lost if you uninstall or install a newer version... custom craft, like custom scenery, go into your own personal ""override"" directories...

as far as "contacting flightgear", you are here... if you need to contact the developers, that would be done via the developers' mailing list which has a link at the top of these forum pages above the logo graphic...

When I put the folder in the "add additional aircraft" it says that there are no aircraft contained in that folder!!!!

If you put the aircraft in folder abc/def/ger/A320neo

Then you should NOT add abc/def/ger/A320neo. You should add abc/def/ger

just some example path

Point is add to launcher not the aircraft folder, but the folder that the aircraft folder is inside.

Yes, that is beside the point.

1: Take your A320neo file/folder and put it somewhere on your harddrive (outside of Flightgear installation)
2: Go into FG launcher under addons, and click add an additional aircraft folder. But NOT select the A320neo file/folder, but instead the folder where it is inside.

Example:

I put my aircraft here: D:\extraAircraft\A320neo
I add this as additional aircraft folder: D:\extraAircraft
