VicMar, xDraconian, I get to wear the Dunce cap today.

I just caught on that the models download as compressed tar archives (*.tgz). FG sees *.ac, *.xml, etc files for models. The archives need to be UNPACKED for FG to see them ("Duh"). When I did that, it worked just fine, right in FG's own Models folders, just like always.

It's hard to diagnose strange problems when experienced people fail to notice they made stupid mistakes.

Sorry about that. And, thanks guys.

That was an easy mistake to make. Well done for spotting it.

We've all worn that dunces cap at some time in the past and there are new tricks being included for us to trip over in almost every new version of FG.
