FGRUN Root & scenery paths in 2016.1.0

Postby dilbert » Sun Feb 14, 2016 3:48 pm

Why is 2016.1.0 root path C:\Program Files\FlightGear 2016.1.0\fgdata rather than C:\Program Files\FlightGear 2016.1.0\data?

And why is 2016.1.0 scenery path c:\Program Files\FlightGear 2016.1.0\fgdata\scenery rather than C:\Program Files\FlightGear2016.1.0\data\scenery?

FGRUN itself has an exclamation point indicating the root path is invalid, and fgdata appears not to exist.

ALL nightlies are like that. My download of 3.7(yes,before the version number changed) expects $FG_ROOT to be./fgdata/ and my Windows prepackaged exe named the directory /data/!!!

I think more Nightly users are gitting (checking out)FGdata from the repo!
There are free alternatives to every program you encounter. You just have to find them.
