Hi there! I have downloaded FlightGear 3.5 (31/05/15) and I would now like to use FGMEMBERS. Can you tell me how to start from scratch and end up with every FGMEMBER plane? Also can I specify which branch of certain airvraft to "git submodule init" when I do all planes at once?

Eg. I "init" all planes and specify that DHC6 be init in branch hotfix?

I need to update that FGMEMBERS wiki
But

Maybe add --depth 1 for a faster, smaller download?


It's quite a no good idea.
It will prevent the easily updating your copy with git pull

(and you will not be able to get new submodules either!)

A rather cold one albeit! Thanks! Flights were great, Business Class was very nice, even though the seats were the old ones. Lesson No 1 to getting cheap Business-- Get a Venezuelan bank account. :) Due to the exchange rate we got a 3forthepriceof1.

End Off Topic.

It is now 800MB's later, although 39%. Seems like the other 400MB are a big percent!

yes.
Do not trust the % in git downloads
They are related to number of objects. No size in bytes, i Believe

What about like Bombable, Merlion ACARS, GVA Acars? Can I add "addons" to the fgdata I got without it deleting them when I pull or anything?

Brief answer
Yes. you can add stuff to the aircraft.

Long but very important answer. Not on the FGDATA folder. But with FGMEMBERS repositories.

I will detail the info much later
(maybe tomorrow)

Too bad. So Sad. Your Dad. :P
But seriously, is there a workaround at all (tomorrow) so I can use MVA, GVA, and Bombable Addons?
Right now downloading all the Boeings-- but 7* didn't work for anything 7xx-yyy so have to do them manualy. It worked for anything 7zz.
