Big thanks to the people who develop this.

Bergen is a nice airport - that word has also a nice ambiguity (for pilots like me who have a strange flying technique plus wonky hardware),
the German verb "bergen" means to salvage or recover ... :lol:

Installed and running great. Thank you Torsten for all the time and work you've put in to make FlightGear a topnotch simulator.

guys, loved the new version( mainly bc that can make it for superb rflections in the aircraft bodies), but i cant figure out how to enable the OSM buildings. I'v updated the scenery several times with terrasync today, but any time i check those things about OSM data on rendeing settings(pylons, roads, buildings), nothing happens. So, is there something i need to configure for this to work?
Testing it at EGLC and EGLL.

As per usual, Thank you Thorsten, Et-Al for all you do making this great FREE software happen, More so the amount of work that goes into doing 4 releases a year...what a achievment that is!!!! More than any paid software producer would do, you'd be lucky to see 1 update every two years!!! Well done all give yourselves a big pat on the back!!
Thanks Clive aka: G-BLS01

Standard stable 2017.1.1 is not in the ppa:saiarcot895/flightgear now. But there is another PPA - ppa:saiarcot895/flightgear-edge with daily build packages, but yesterday build didn't work :(
When I tried to use stable 2017.1.1, cmake didn't build package, in the error logs I found message X11 package not found.
Now, I'm flying with 2016.4.4 and waiting, when 2017.1.1 will appear in the ppa:saiarcot895/flightgear...

New OSM data ruined my today flight from LZIB to EGKK. Terrain disappeared when I was on final ILS approach to EGKK 26L and FG downloaded more than 420 MB OSM data files :(
Result - OSM is very nice, but download it automaticaly via terrasync is not good idea.

:shock: That is a lot of data, but makes sense in a way. :|

I downloaded terrain manualy from FG web, I hope my 20MBit internet connection will be sufficient for OSM. After tests, I will report.
