why some aircraft dont appear in the launcher

Postby lomar » Wed Jan 06, 2016 8:11 pm

Well, i recently installed the latest nightly build, and noticed that some aircraft are not appearing in the launcher, and i can't choose them to run the sim because of this.

the ones that i noticed were:

707
777
a330
c172
b1900
md11

but there may be others...

well, what can i do in this situation? is there a way to fix it?

Are they in the default aircraft directory? If not, move them there.

Just where did you get them? And did you leave it open for a minute; with my 800 aircraft, it takes a couple of seconds for all of them to load :)

Or so. Need to count them, but it is somewhere around there, wih all the aircraft available in FlightGear - every single one of them - installed. Well, except for the HondaJet, obviously, which is no more.

Anyway, that aside, (I'll be forwarding you something)
Lomar, could you please give us more detail?
Where did you get all these aircraft?

i've tried it in some different folders, and any of them worked. also, didn't work waiting, and even trying to reloading the folders. none of these worked.

The folder they are in MUST be called "Aircraft". And if you use FGRun, then you must restart FGRun after you have added the aircraft folder. If you use the new buildin launcher then there is a checkbox at the bottom that lets you see all planes, not only those with high rankings.

but why do you have to restart? isn't it a bug?

Maybe it could be called a bug, but they are moving away from FGRun, next release will use another loader per default, so don't think it will get fixed.

I was just corrected by legoboyvdlp, he is right that you can name your aircraft folder anything you like. So ignore my statement about that.
