Saving and restoring flight setup

Postby gkick » Mon Jan 23, 2017 7:33 pm

Hi,

Is it possible to save and retrieve a session after setting up route, ap, etc or midflight The inbuild flight recorder does not seem to store all the properties and or details.
Also is it possible to load a fgtape file from the commandline as FG gets upset if first started with a different aircraft

Thanks in advance

Tapes are aircraft-specific, you can't reuse one on a different aircraft (actually you could if they used identical tape-recording definition, but that is up to each aircraft designer).

Unfortunately we don't have a good way to save and restore the complete state of the simulator - it would be very desirable but unfortunately it is quite a large amount of work and so far nobody volunteered to attempt it.
